A man suspected of shooting three people in an Oklahoma City restaurant on Thursday night came to the attention of local police in January, after he posted hundreds of fliers across the city in which he warned of “demons in cloned transexual (sic) bodies” and asked people to visit his YouTube channel.

Kansas has a problem: It has a law allowing teachers to carry guns in the classroom, but almost no schools are using it because insurance companies refuse to provide coverage if they do. As EMC Insurance, the largest insurer of schools in Kansas, explained in a letter to its agents, the company "has concluded that concealed handguns on school premises poses a heightened liability risk."

A Florida mother kept her son home from school last week because he told her they were having a water gun fight, according to WFTX. The Lee County mother, who didn’t want to be identified, said it was inappropriate in the wake of the recent school shootings. She said encouraging students to shoot water guns is inappropriate during a time when they are put through active shooter training.

Thomas Chittum’s father began teaching him how to handle a gun before he was in grade school in West Virginia, and by the time he got his first shotgun at 7 or 8, Chittum knew what he wanted as a career: federal agent. He’s remained an avid hunter and outdoorsman. And at 42, he’s now heading the Washington Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and looking every bit the G-man image he admired as a child.

The Kent ISD School Board is joining more than 200 groups and organizations nationwide in calling for a public health approach to preventing school and community gun violence.

An interdisciplinary group of violence prevention experts developed a "Call for Action to Prevent Gun Violence in the United States of America." The effort was launched in response to the 17 students and staff killed Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

"We need a change in mindset and policy from reaction to prevention. Prevention entails more than security measures and begins long before an incident occurs,' according to the school board's resolution passed May 21.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Thursday unveiled a new gun control proposal that, according to the Seattle Times, will penalize gun owners $500 to $10,000 “for failing to lock up and safeguard their firearms.”

But most Times readers responding to the report appear to be unimpressed and in a few cases downright opposed. There are two primary concerns:

How does the city expect to enforce the idea?

Now that both sides have had their chance to walk out and speak, the Cody School District isn’t allowing any more students to walk out of class during the school day without consequences. That was the announcement by superintendent Ray Schulte during the May 15 board meeting in response to two spring walkouts staged by students, both around 20 minutes in length.

The City Council passed it back in March to a group of supporters and critics. It’s not the storybook ending David Petronis hoped for, after 34 years of bringing gun shows to the Saratoga Springs City Center. "I feel that it's a terrible ending. We should still be allowed to be here,” Petronis, President of New East Coast Arms Collectors, said. "We've made a lot of friends, a lot of money up here, brought in a lot of money to Saratoga."

Shannon Watts is … Right? Oklahoma City Good Guys with Guns were ‘Not Average Citizens’

As Twitchy reported, it was not just one but two armed citizens who confronted and killed a man who had opened fire inside an Oklahoma City restaurant Thursday night, injuring three. We were ready for the spin against the “good guy with a gun” narrative, and it came quickly. Moms Demand founder Shannon Watts, for example, noted that the gunman was shot in the parking lot after he had shot his victims. Guess he just should have been allowed to walk away, then?

He was attacked at the Kerryman pub in Digbeth, near the city centre, at about 1.30am on Saturday, West Midlands police said. Officers were viewing CCTV footage and investigating in the local area, but no arrests have been made and no weapon has been recovered.
 

Push to Ban Gun Shows has Long, Tangled History in California

When a Bay Area county decided to pass a law that effectively banned gun shows from its fairgrounds, it sparked one of the nation’s longest running legal battles over the right to bear arms. In the end, the county conceded and the gun shows were allowed to resume under stricter rules, leaving some of the central constitutional questions around the issue unsettled. Once again, gun shows at publicly-owned convention centers and fairgrounds are being targeted for expulsion around the state. And the legal roadmap is no less clear.
 

March for Our Lives: Marching Without A Clue

On March 24, hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren marched in cities across the United States and the world to demand an end to school violence. At least, that’s what the website said. The reality, I found, was a quite different story. In fact, for anyone who attended hoping to focus on school safety, it was a colossal bait-and-switch. Most of the people I saw at the “March For Our Lives” in downtown Washington, D.C., were not children. Many were there with their parents, but they were certainly nowhere near the majority.

It’s official: Representative Marcia Morey wants your guns. This North Carolina House member from The People’s Republic of Durham and (ugh) former judge has now introduced HB 976, “Extreme Gun Confiscation for North Carolina.” Morey doesn’t call it that, of course. She claims it is for “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” to keep all those mass killers (the ones the media endlessly encourages) from possessing guns.

It was another “Tim Cook moment” for corporate America – this time involving United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz. And, once again, it came courtesy of the National Center’s Justin Danhof.
Munoz, answering a question posed by the National Center’s Free Enterprise Project (FEP), was forced to answer for what he called a “personal” decision he made on behalf the company. It’s a decision that offends supporters of the Second Amendment. And, after FEP’s questioning and Munoz digging in his heels, it became clear he offended the business community as well as his employees.

As an estimated 230 people sat down in a San Luis Obispo church on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend for a town hall on gun violence, the significance of the holiday wasn't lost on one of the panelists. Richard Martinez, whose 20-year-old son Christopher Michaels-Martinez was one of three people killed by a shooter in Isla Vista in 2014, marked the occasion by discussing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall that sits in Washington, D.C. There are nearly 60,000 names on the wall.

David Hogg is back at it, doing the only thing he apparently knows, which is mau-mauing business. The youthful gun-control activist staged a "die-in" at Publix in Coral Springs, Florida to protest the grocery retailer's donation to a pro-business Republican candidate who also supports the Second Amendment. Apparently, you can't do that and must work only to elect anti-business leftists, or else Hogg will come protesting, bringing his media gaggle, at you.

A school shooting in Denton is a tragic prospect, but one that local officials have been forced to diligently plan for. After a teenage gunman shot and killed eight students and two teachers at Santa Fe High School near Houston on May 18, people across the country have continued to butt heads about the underlying reasons for such massacres. The Santa Fe incident marked the 16th school shooting this year, The Washington Post reported. Some say the prevalence of guns is the issue; others say firearms are the only way to prevent shooters from claiming more lives.

Over a steamy Memorial Day weekend, seven people have been killed and at least 30 others wounded as the pace of gun violence is set to surpass last year's holiday in Chicago. Among those fatally shot was 17-year-old China Lyons-Upshaw, who was killed in an apparent accident in a Kenwood home, police said. A witness told police the teenager and a man were playing with a gun around 9 p.m. Saturday when it fell to the ground and fired, hitting China in the chest. The man initially ran from the scene in the 800 block of east 49th Street, but community activist Holmes worked with family and friends, and convinced the suspect to speak with the authorities.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
