In an apparent case of self-defense, a man was fatally shot during a family disturbance in Moreno Valley on Sunday morning, officials said.

Deputies arrived at 1:15 a.m. to a home in the 23700 block of Blackbird Circle to a report of multiple people involved in a family altercation, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

“During the incident, an estranged family arrived at the location and broke into the residence while threatening to cause harm to the occupants. The occupants confronted the estranged family member who became hostile. During the altercation, a resident used a firearm against the assailant,” the statement said.

“Should I buy a handgun or a shotgun for home defense?” is a question I often get from friends. These people often overlook AR-type rifles. Regardless, I often recommend an AR. Here’s why.

Various news agencies are reporting that panic-buying of firearms and ammunition initially spurred by fears of social unrest related to the coronavirus pandemic have continued strong into the summer, thanks to riots following the death of George Floyd under Minneapolis police restraint, and the rise of a movement to defund police.

Having a less-than-lethal option in your EDC gear is a pretty great idea. Even if all it ever does is give you peace of mind about warding off aggressive canines on your afternoon run, having the option gives you more tools in your self-defense toolbox. Not every confrontation can or should have a ballistic solution, yet there are absolutely situations where having something is better than nothing, and in these cases, OC/pepper spray is a great option.

As the legislative lead of the Crozet group of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, I'm happy to see Virginia law has finally caught up with the demands of legal, responsible gun ownership as a slew of new laws take effect July 1.
 

Samuel Alito dissents. A frustrating few months for the conservative justice

Ultimately, citing the fact that the law had been changed, the justices sidestepped the issue, sending the case back to the lower court for further consideration.

Alito was furious.

"By incorrectly dismissing this case as moot, the court permits our docket to be manipulated in a way that should not be countenanced," Alito wrote in a dissent joined by Thomas and Gorsuch. He noted that after the court had agreed to hear the case, the city "sprang into action to prevent us from deciding this case" and that its public safety concerns "evaporated."

Is Alice Arambarri’s call for action merely a poorly disguised and insensitive attempt to enact more gun control on the backs and frayed emotions of the families who have suffered already? She appears to be stretching the statistics to achieve an agenda that would put more people at risk. Chicago, with its extreme gun control measures, is a fine example of how the unarmed citizens are at the mercy of the armed felons, gangs, criminals. It is wrong to manipulate the emotions of families already suffering to twist the facts merely to undermine the Second Amendment.

“The widespread Covid layoffs and furloughs have further harmed both the NRA’s legal capacity and political influence beyond what was already a troubling deterioration,” said one NRA official who requested anonymity to discuss internal matters. The official added the outlook this year for NRA political spending was “deeply concerning.”
 

VA: Effort to force Norfolk council vote on gun laws falls short. But advocates have asked a judge for a second chance.

An effort by gun-rights advocates in Norfolk to force the City Council to consider a measure preventing staff from enforcing some state gun laws has failed to net enough signatures.

That means the ordinance pushed by advocates won’t appear on the City Council’s agenda any time soon, and there’s no public hearing scheduled on the matter

But that may not be the end of the effort.

On 23 June, 2020, the Oklahoma Supreme Court dealt another blow to the efforts by Democrat Jason Lowe and others to kill Constitutional Carry in Oklahoma.

Constitutional Carry is the right to carry a loaded handgun in most public spaces, concealed or openly. It is the state of law that existed when the Constitution was written and when the Bill of Rights was ratified.

On 27 February, 2019 Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed HB 2597 into law. Oklahoma became the 15th member of the Constitutional Carry club.

A married couple have been filmed brandishing firearms at a group of protesters who marched through their upscale St. Louis neighborhood, Sunday night en route to the home of Mayor Lyda Krewson.

Husband and wife, Mark and Patricia ‘Patty’ McCloskey who are both personal injury lawyers, at ‘McCloskey Law’ could be seen aiming their weapons, he an AR-15 rifle, her a pistol, at demonstrators who walked by their palatial property in the wealthy Forest Park neighborhood at around 6pm on Sunday.
 

Nope, They Really Do Want to 'Burn It All Down!'

Hawk Newsome—while boasting how right it is to “burn it down”—also oddly interjected the announcement that Black Lives Matter will practice their “Second Amendment rights” in the pursuit of their demands.

Armed thuggery, bragged about, on primetime news?

My hunch is the cowardly mayors will bow to the angry mob again and look the other way on the firearms. But God help you if, as a law-abiding American citizen, you get stopped while Constitutionally carrying.

Being willing to die for a cause is a far more powerful force for change than the urge to protect your own life and family and property and to heck with everyone else, which seems to be the mentality of the predominantly white gun-owning populace in this country.
 

WI: Contact your county supervisor to back Second Amendment sanctuaries

Now is the time to contact your County Board supervisor.

There is a movement across the country and across Wisconsin to pass resolutions to declare counties as Second Amendment Sanctuaries. Any person who supports the 2nd Amendment should support creating 2nd Amendment sanctuary counties which would prohibit funding for enforcement of any unconstitutional law relating to firearms, support local law enforcement’s refusal to enforce unconstitutional laws relating to firearms, and oppose any laws that infringe on every citizen’s 2nd Amendment rights to keep and bear arms.

The long drive from Jackson, Mississippi, to this rural community in northeast Oklahoma is one Houston Hardin doesn’t mind taking each June.

It’s always a blast.

Thousands of Second Amendment advocates and gun enthusiasts have gathered in this tiny town each June for 19 years to meet up with friends, shoot fully automatic weapons, ride in helicopters, and even blow up broken-down cars at the Oklahoma Full Auto Shoot and Trade Show. Above all, they say, they hope to educate people about firearm safety and demonstrate why the Second Amendment is important.
