Carrying a concealed pistol in Michigan without a permit or completing any gun safety training would be legal under a package of bills that a House committee approved Tuesday. The measure now goes to the full House for consideration after Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee approved the package in a series of 6-4 votes with all Democrats voting no. Democrats failed to persuade the panel to approve any amendments leaving intact some current restrictions for carrying concealed pistols.

Some men, when they retire, take up fishing, others golf. Not I. Perhaps decades of watching deer romp through my garden subliminally planted the notion. Or binge-watching “The Rifleman” reruns on Saturday mornings. Whatever the reason, I surprised my 64-year-old liberal self recently when I realized I wanted to try a new pastime: shooting.

John Scoutten and Tony Pignato have the highlights, with shot-string timing, to the final round of the US Steel Nationals.

On TV, the blunt-talking Marcus Lemonis uses his show "The Profit" to find struggling businesses, take a financial stake in them, and turn them into successful companies once more. He's doing that in the corporate world, too, where his recreational vehicle dealership Camping World (NYSE:CWH) recently won a bankruptcy auction for sporting goods chain Gander Mountain for $390 million, a company whose management practices he characterized as "stupid."

MI: Michigan House Panel Repeals Requirements for Concealed Carry
Submitted by: Corey Salo

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
A House panel today approved a controversial package of bills that will allow Michigan residents to carry concealed weapons without obtaining permits or receiving training. The four bills passed in 6-4 votes. They now move on to the full House and would also require Senate approval and the signature of Gov. Rick Snyder, to become law.

A large part of the rationale for repealing the permit and safety training requirement is that under current Michigan law, law-abiding citizens can openly carry a firearm without a permit, fees, or a training requirement. Proponents of the change called the permit requirement a money grab that essentially taxed people for putting jackets over their guns.

Authorities said Sullivan had been in the area the day before, causing a disturbance and threatening to kill several people. Sullivan returned on Monday, and was pulling a gun from his waistband when a 30-year-old man shot him, authorities said.
 

With 'Stand Your Ground' Change, Getting Away With Murder in Florida Could Soon Be Easier

Getting away with murder may soon be easier in Florida.
Prosecutors certainly hope it won’t be. Victims’ family members are pleading with Gov. Rick Scott not to let it happen. But unless Scott does something he hasn’t done much before — defy the National Rifle Association — the governor will soon approve changes to the state’s “stand your ground” law that will make it harder for prosecutors to convict.

The Pacific Northwest’s most high profile and well-funded gun prohibition lobbying organization, the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, will be holding its annual fund-raising luncheon in Seattle today at the Westin Hotel. It could be a gathering of the Who’s Who of anti-gun politics, gloating about the passage of two gun control initiatives since 2014, and looking ahead to more gun rights erosion in the Evergreen State.

That a shotgun is a capable, if not perfect, firearm for protecting one’s person, family, abode or homestead is undeniable. But, as opinions vary greatly, there’s little consensus as to what constitutes an ideal home-defense scattergun. Semi-automatic rifle owners who desire their shotgun to appear and function (somewhat) like their rifle, as well as individuals preferring detachable box magazines to tubular ones or who cherish rail space for adding “extras,” need to pay attention to the subject of this review, the Turkish-made TriStar KRX Tactical.
 

Pennsylvania Republican Doubles Down: Defends Bill to Outlaw Private Gun Sales
Submitted by: David Williamson

Pennsylvania Rep. Jamie Santora (R-163) defended his legislation outlawing private gun sales via the implementation of universal background checks during the May 30 airing of Whatever It Takes with Curt Schilling. On May 28, Breitbart News reported that Santora wants to ban the private sales that Americans have enjoyed since the Second Amendment was ratified in 1791. His vehicle for doing this is an expansion of background checks wherein private gun sales are equated with retail gun sales, thereby forcing a law-abiding co-worker to seek out an agent of the state, fill out paperwork, and get permission–i.e., submit to a background check–before buying a gun from a co-worker.
 

WI: “Constitutional Carry:” Bill Would Allow People to Carry Concealed Without a Permit, Training

A proposed bill would allow people in Wisconsin to carry concealed guns without a permit or training. The state's largest police union is against the proposal, while supporters say it's really just a slight change to the current concealed carry law. At Fletcher Arms in Waukesha, it is easy to find those who believe efforts to bring "constitutional carry" laws to Wisconsin are on target. "The lack of a training requirement should not equate, in people's minds, to a lack of people having training," Nik Clark, president of Wisconsin Carry said.

On the day of the tragic shooting at Terminal 2 at the Fort Lauderdale airport on Jan. 6, I had the misfortune of listening to right-wing talk radio during a long drive. Discussion turned to what could have been done to prevent the attack, and I heard that sad but persistent fallacy: "If only the other passengers had been armed ..."

Tuesday, the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission will discuss if it should convert its park rangers into sworn peace officers. The proposal is an effort to add law enforcement in Chico, while still saving money. For now, the park rangers operate under Chico Public Works. If this proposal is approved, they will transition under the Chico Police Department. The problem the park rangers said they have is they are already spread thin as it is.

The pistol arrives at my house in a padded tote, the size you’d pack a picnic lunch in. It’s a 9mm Glock 26, a “sub-compact” concealable semi-automatic. Diminutive, hammerless and made of polymer, to my eye, it’s a true exotic. It’s accompanied by two clips and a box of 115 grain ammo, missing one round. I think, How about that? I zip the tote back up, squirrel it away in my desk.

SNAP! Was that a branch I just heard break, or are my ears playing tricks on me? I wondered. Then everything was silent again except for the crazed, buzzing mosquitoes kept at bay by a combination of liberal bug spray and a Thermacell. I listened intently while scanning the area with my eyes. CRACK! A grin came over my face as the excitement and adrenaline instantly started to build.

The term “childproof handgun” sounds innocuous enough, but like most of New York’s unworkable gun control laws, the devil is in the details. Sen. Jose Serrano (D-Bronx) is the mastermind behind S.3444, which is as far-fetched as microstamping, “smart guns” and ammunition background check databases. Undeterred by failure after failure, anti-gun lawmakers in the New York Senate are back pitching more gun control. S.3444 would ban gun dealers, after 12 months, from selling firearms not equipped with safety features which would “preclude an average five year old child from operating the pistol or revolver.”

In a state known more for its alligators, there is a new job title: Pro python hunter. An estimated 100,000 pythons are living in and ravaging Florida’s Everglades. They will eat 160 animals in five years and have no enemies. Even alligators are no match for the Burmese python. A 13-footer caught and killed recently had three baby deer in its belly.

North Carolina wildlife officials are considering alligator hunting in the state for the first time since 1973. In June, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is holding six meetings to discuss the possible change. “What we would recommend if there really are enough alligators to support a limited hunting season is that we start where there’s the most alligators and the most alligator habitat and start it slow and go from there,” commission spokesperson Allen Boynton told the Daily News of Jacksonville.
