FL: He got shot through a barbershop door. Florida’s self-defense law cleared the killer

Two seeming strangers went into a North Miami-Dade barbershop. One man, Robinson Fertulien, finished his haircut and walked to the bathroom to urinate. The other, Garry Garcon, was about to get his hair cut.

Suddenly, somewhere outside the barbershop, gunfire erupted on the street. Everyone inside scattered, including Garcon, who took refuge in a back office across from the bathroom.

GA: US Airman Michael Giles’ 25 Year Sentence Is Proof That Stand Your Ground Does Not Apply To Black People

Another white man has invoked the “stand your ground” or “shoot first” law, this time in Clearwater, Florida, to justify the fatal shooting of a Black man and claim self-defense. The killing is yet another reminder that Stand Your Ground has not worked for Black people, as the conviction of a Black airman who shot and injured another man in self-defense shows.

Jake Martens’ father and uncle were both active in NRA bullseye matches, as well as skeet and trap. At age eight, Jake spent time at the Daniel Boone Gun Club near Evansville, IN, watching them practice. The first handguns he remembers shooting were a Smith & Wesson Model 41 and a Ruger Security Six Revolver. He bugged his dad and uncle to shoot their 1911s. Eventually, they allowed him to shoot one of the different Colts they brought along for practice. Everything from Clark heavy slide .38 wadcutter guns to ones built by Jack Best from the AMU and Gold Cups.
 

VA: The absolutely absurd reason white supremacists are allowed to rally with guns in Charlottesville

Local police are, indeed, bound by the Second Amendment. But as it happens, there is no Second Amendment right permitting a violent white supremacist to bring a gun to the site of a deadly rally on that rally’s anniversary during a lawfully designated state of emergency. It is possible that Virginia state law restricts Charlottesville’s ability to keep guns away from the secured area, but that’s the fault of the state legislature — and it is also something the state legislature could have fixed. The Second Amendment does not say what Brackney claims that it says.
 

The Las Vegas Massacre Report and the Rise of Second Amendment Nihilism

And it’s absurd, in a mad way, because the premise of the killings was one that no other civilized country would have tolerated for a moment. Paddock bought fifty-five guns, mostly rifles, in the space of a year—most of them the kind of lethal weapons properly called assault rifles or military-style weapons, several augmented with an accessory known as a bump stock, which allowed for even more rapid firing. There is no reason on earth why any citizen of a democracy would ever need even one of these weapons, let alone fifty-five. Not to mention that the simple act of buying that many weapons of murder might be a sign that murder was being planned—an alert missed.
 

IL: La Salle County voters can share voice on Second Amendment rights

La Salle County voters — your opinion on your Second Amendment rights is requested.

Do you oppose bills passed by Illinois lawmakers restricting your Second Amendment rights? That’s the gist of a referendum that’ll appear on the Nov. 6 ballot.

At today's county board meeting, a resolution to place an advisory (nonbinding) referendum on the November ballot came before the board and passed. Two people talked during public comment on the matter before the vote.
 

The Truth about the Second Amendment

And certainly, there has been a move away from the mid-20th-century consensus that the Second Amendment was either meaningless — in 1975, the American Bar Association proclaimed bizarrely that “it is doubtful that the Founding Fathers had any intent in mind with regard to the meaning of this Amendment” — or wholly without teeth as a protector of individual rights. And yet, contrary to popular claims, these transformations did not represent a novel revolution in meaning or interpretation but rather a much-needed restoration of what for most of American history was supremely, even mundanely, obvious: that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” means “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.”
 

No middle ground on Constitution

On July 20, I answered Otts Laupus’ July 15 letter responding to an earlier letter of mine. My response was that in the matter of D.C. v. Heller (2008), the United States Supreme Court ruled that it was the people’s right to keep and bear arms and not the states right or the militia’s right. All of that is true and undisputable, so why then would Mr. Laupus cite a case involving an illegally altered shotgun, being transported across state lines (U.S. v. Miller, 1939) to dispute my previous statement of fact.
 

CT: Pro-Second Amendment Group Calls Robocall A ‘Dirty Trick’

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League has a problem with Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Stefanowski’s robocalls. They say it’s “a betrayal of trust and honor” to confuse voters about which candidate has received the group’s endorsement.

CCDL President Scott Wilson sent a message to its more than 30,000 members Wednesday to let them know they’ve endorsed former Trumbull First Selectman Tim Herbst in the Aug. 14 Republican Primary.
 

Senate needs to know Kavanaugh’s views on guns

Does the constitutional right to armed self-defense extend outside the home? The Supreme Court didn’t address that issue when it a decade ago issued a landmark ruling affirming an individual’s right to keep firearms in the home for personal protection. Now, that question is on the front burner with a ruling by a federal appeals court that would have alarming implications for public safety.

The decision underscores why gun-control advocates are concerned that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation could mean a dramatic tilt against efforts to regulate gun safety.
 

NY: The N.R.A. Has Declared War on Andrew Cuomo. He Couldn’t Be Happier.

That solution has now become a new problem: It is the latest fodder in Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s long-running clash with the N.R.A., as he seeks to ban Carry Guard not only in New York but across the nation. The powerful gun-rights group, in turn, has sued New York State, casting the battle in life-or-death terms and arguing that if Mr. Cuomo prevails, the N.R.A. could be left “unable to exist.”

That existential lamentation created a ready-made political opportunity — and Mr. Cuomo seized on it.

He has made the rounds on the morning news shows, mounting a national campaign to encourage other governors to follow his lead in banning Carry Guard. He has rolled out campaign ads promising to take the N.R.A. “to the brink.”

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. — Noah Webster in "An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution," 1787, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at p. 56 (New York, 1888).
