MI:Guns at Capitol sent the wrong message
Submitted by: Corey Salo

The Bill of Rights is a sacred trust that all of us inherited from our brave forefathers.

Those rights were paid for by blood, sweat, and tears, and anything that threatens them, or erodes their power, needs to addressed and corrected swiftly.

That is why we vehemently object to the presence of gun-toting citizens last week inside the state Capitol — especially the photographs of protestors yelling in front of a line of Michigan State Police officers, who were in masks, calmly standing there, preventing the protesters from entering the state House chambers.

We always have stood in support of the First and Second amendments. That will not change. Nor does it here.

Not when it comes to the 2020 US Senate race in Montana, however. Liberal Gov. Steve Bullock's (D-MT) open embrace of a semi-automatic weapons ban and other gun control measures gives gun owners and the NRA an easy choice.

The NRA is endorsing Montana's Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) with an A+ rating. The Daines campaign announced the news Tuesday:
 

A New Lever-Action in the Arsenal: Henry Axe

Most guns fit neatly into categories—hunting, self-defense, cowboy action, plinking; yet, every once in a while, one defies labels. The Henry Axe fires .410 shotgun ammunition from a lever-action platform with metrics to match the Mossberg Shockwave and Remington Tac-14, direct bloodlines to Henry’s own Mare’s Leg “pistols.” Meet the new Axe in the woodpile.

My primary focus is on the inalienable right to self-defense, protected against infringement by the Second Amendment. I support candidates who understand and practice this right. I’m not the least bit interested in candidates that support gun control, no matter how well-intentioned or disguised. Marco Rubio, Dan Crenshaw, and Donald Trump all fall into that category. Little Marco supported “red flag laws,” Dan supports the TAPS act, and Trump’s ATF banned bump stocks without any legitimate authority to do so.

Fresno City Councilman Miguel Arias has been cited after a confrontation between him and a group of protesters outside his home, according to Fresno police.

Video posted to Facebook shows a group, led by political activist Ben Berquam, turning up at Arias’ home on Tuesday. The footage shows Arias asking them to leave. He then shoves Berquam and knocks a cell phone out of the hand of another man.

FOX 5 sister station KGPE reports officers say Arias was cited for three counts of misdemeanor battery. Policy dictates that, so long as the suspect is cooperative, a citation is issued instead of the suspect been booked. A cited court date has been provided.
 

Norma Hexagon Match Ammo - Aerodynamically Sound

You might know Norma from their long-standing reputation in the rifle and rimfire categories. They have a hard-earned reputation for precision and fail-safe performance. Recently, I’ve started to test out their centerfire handgun line. First up is the Hexagon load. At first glance, you’d think it’s self-defense ammo given the traditional jacketed design, cavity in the pointy end (although small), and scoring along the bullet jacket’s exterior.

As it turns out, the Norma Hexagon offering is a match load designed for accuracy, not expansion. Those grooves in the bullet aren’t there to facilitate jacket and core expansion but rather to create a more aerodynamically stable flight path. It’s science.

In the Garden State, Gov. Phil Murphy (D) has allowed tennis courts, golf courses and parks to reopen but not outdoor gun ranges, and is now the subject of a federal lawsuit over it.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court, cites Murphy as a defendant along with other New Jersey officials and was brought by healthcare worker Delores Ricci, 59, in conjunction with the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs.

Ricci, a first-time gun owner, recently purchased a handgun for self-defense and, having no prior firearms experience, believes it is important to head to the range with her new gun.

While many businesses shut down during the pandemic, a business in LeClaire that teaches women how to protect themselves and sells the products to do just that opened for the first time.

Mama Bear’s Concealed Carry opened early last month.

Angie Fullmer owns it with her husband.

Fullmer says times are uncertain, and she wants to help women protect themselves.

That also includes helping them choose the right bag carrying their self-defense weapon. Whether it’s a gun, knife or pepper spray.

Bandy wrote, “Given the nature of the events, the location and ownership of the property, the verbal threats made by Zachary Stinson accompanied by the apparent ability to carry out the threat to kill Jesse Peterson, and the current state of all of the evidence available; the State would not be able to meet its burden to overcome Jesse Peterson’s right to self-defense, defense of property, and/or other defenses beyond a reasonable doubt.”
 

MI: A key question before Thursday protest at Capitol: What does it mean to brandish a weapon?

A key question faces protesters who gather at the Capitol on Thursday and the law enforcement officers patrolling what could be a busy scene: What does it mean to brandish a weapon?

Armed protesters who appeared at previous demonstrations outside and inside the Capitol have renewed debates about whether firearms should be allowed inside.

Firearms remain allowed, but on Tuesday, Sen. Michael Shirkey said law enforcement should act if armed protesters are seen "brandishing" weapons.

At first, the data appeared to show a positive relationship between gun ownership and happiness, but when researchers included the respondents’ marital status in their analysis, that positive relationship dissipates. Gun owners were more likely to be married than their unarmed counterparts, and marriage, not owning a gun positively affected happiness.

About 1:30 AM on a Wednesday at an Exxon gas station convenience store, two men forced their way through the locked doors. Security video captured the incident.

The clerk was in a Plexiglas pod at the time and was able to access his gun and fire on the suspects killing one of them. The second ran from the scene while two others apparently abandoned him as they drove away in a BMW.

Village True Value Hardware in East Hampton Village on Wednesday announced on Twitter it is now selling tasers for customers' "protection."

The Mace brand stun guns are selling for $29.99 at the Newtown Lane store. They double as flashlights, complete with “strobe mode,” and can be charged by a USB connection.

No one in the store would comment on the sale of the devices but on Twitter, the store said, "Wow what a place tasers, hand sanitizers and garden supplies. No sheep — yet."

The Michigan State Police released a series of Tweets detailing their security plan and intentions to make arrests if people brandish a gun in a manner that intimidates others, even though Michigan is an open-carry state.

Ed.: MSP trying to chill the 2A. Someone should sue, if the courts were actually treating it like a fundamental right.

Don't believe it. It's an optical illusion.

These people marching about grasping huge automatic weapons in their tiny little hands do not represent the majority. In fact, they are a minority of the minority.

Don't tread on me! Haircuts for all! My right to have a tattoo whenever I want out ranks your right to live!

NV: Americans growing numb to NRA’s constant drumbeat of fearmongering

Leave it to the National Rifle Association to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic for its own gain.

But that’s what the NRA has been doing in recent months — fearmongering over the crisis to drive up gun sales and try to broaden its membership base.

On social media and internet videos, the NRA paints a dystopian picture in which social order has spun apart and guns are the only means of assuring survival. Think “Mad Max” except with people fighting over food instead of fossil fuels.

Local gun shops were staring down the barrel of possible financial ruin until a federal judge ruled last week that Gov. Charlie Baker’s orders to close placed an “improper burden” on people’s constitutional rights to possess firearms.

U.S. District Judge Douglas P. Woodlock in Boston ordered Massachusetts to allow gun shops to reopen nearly two months after Baker’s administration deemed them nonessential businesses that needed to close to slow the spread of COVID-19. Sales at area stores have gone through the roof since noon on Saturday, when they were allowed to open the doors again.

The motion, forwarded by Commissioner Steve Barrows and seconded by Commissioner Doug Houge, established a 200-word limit per person and required those commenting to include their name and city they live in.
 

Klobuchar’s Everytown Veepstakes Has Uncle Dick Still in the Deer Stand

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s 2020 presidential bid didn’t last long, but it seems like her Uncle Dick is stuck sitting up in that dang deer stand.

The third-term Minnesota Democrat, wishing she “brought some wine,” joined Everytown for Gun Safety’s Veepstakes virtual candidate panel to audition for the Number Two spot on former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential ticket. Biden’s antigun platform is becoming increasingly more well-known at the same time as millions of first-time gun buyers begin to pay more attention to the campaign. Gun control’s godfather billionaire Michael Bloomberg funds Everytown, which joined their benefactor to endorse Biden and pledged to spend big to help his campaign.
