When the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down the District’s “good-reason” requirement for concealed carry, it begged the question once more: Where would we be without Heller? District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) was the seminal Supreme Court decision that reaffirmed that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual one, in no way tied to or dependent upon service in the military or militia. In other words, it is a right possessed by each American at birth, and it comes without stipulation or caveat.

We all desire to stay on the right side of the law, but we also know that navigating U.S. gun laws without help is like finding your way through a shopping mall: Treacherous and no fun at all. Unfortunately, attorneys rarely comment without money for copious research, and gun companies don’t like to say much for fear of liability. Adding to the National Firearms Act’s (NFA) jargon are subjective, case-by-case rulings by ATF officials concerning what constitutes “sporting purposes.”

A joyride resulted in four Johnson County teens getting in trouble with the law.

The sheriff says the teens were videotaping themselves doing donuts and tearing up the owner's grass.

A 65-year-old man who fatally shot another man in the head and neck inside a Minnetonka ministorage facility was acting in self-defense and won’t be charged, a spokesman for the Hennepin County attorney’s office said Tuesday. Thomas E. Luetzow, 58, of Minnetonka, was shot late on the morning of June 23 at the Public Mini Storage in the 2800 block of Hedberg Drive during what police described as a dispute between the two men. Luetzow was dead at the scene.
 

As Concealed Carry Surges, Reciprocity Opponents Double Down

Tuesday marks the first day that licensed gun owners can carry concealed on community college campuses in Texas, a year after it became legal to carry on four-year university campuses. The timing is important, because the debate over national concealed carry reciprocity is heating up as opponents in the gun prohibition movement double down with their arguments against leveling the field between criminals, terrorists and their intended victims. Those arguments are questionable at the very least.

Lynn Dunagan’s passion for firearms and shooting at gun ranges didn’t happen overnight. In fact, she only decided to learn how to shoot after her divorce, when she found herself scared in her own home. Dunagan, the founder of the Ladies of Steel gun club and owner of JMD Defense and Investigations, said there weren’t many women, especially black women, learning how to handle and shoot firearms.

Gov. Rick Scott chooses his legal battles the way President Donald Trump selects White House communications directors. Except the ones who ultimately pay the price are Florida taxpayers. The Associated Press reports that since Scott took office in 2011 the state has paid at least $19 million to cover expenses and fees for lawyers who have sued the state. He recently agreed to pay $1.1 million to cover the legal bills of physicians and medical organizations who successfully challenged the infamous "docs vs. Glocks" law that prohibited doctors from talking to their patients about guns.

NJ: Senator Looking to Restart ‘Smart Gun’ Efforts in State

Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg heads to Washington for the day Thursday, waiting to kick-start a 15-year quest to require personalized “smart guns” on the shelves of New Jersey gun retailers. Such guns would have technology keeping them from being fired by anyone other than the registered owner or, as envisioned in the case of police officers, the officers and their partners. Current New Jersey law requires them to be exclusively sold in New Jersey once they’re viable – which may be unintentionally undercutting their path to the marketplace.

Do you carry a handgun when you are hunting. If so, what is the intended use for a it on your hunting trips? Think about it. There should be a good reason for everything you decide to carry with you. Some people actually like the challenge of hunting with a handgun instead of a more powerful high-powered rifle. It certainly requires getting closer to game and the ability to precisely place the shot.

For many years after its introduction in 1955, the .44 Magnum was often referred to as the most powerful handgun cartridge in the world. Several other handgun cartridges have exceeded its power since then, but it still remains a powerful round that is capable of taking most North American big game.

A national gun-safety group on Tuesday stepped up pressure in New Mexico against proposed U.S. firearms legislation that would make states recognize concealed handgun permits from other states. With members of Congress returning home for August recess, Americans for Responsible Solutions warned that concealed carry reciprocity legislation would undermine New Mexico’s rigorous training and screening standards for people seeking to obtain licenses so they can carry concealed handguns.

I try to pay as little attention to Canada as possible, because it’s Canada. Other than providing American TV shows with a cheaper place to film, I’ve never understood the whole point of that country. Their sports are boring, their food is mediocre, and Trailer Park Boys simply isn’t very funny. It’s as if somebody decided to base an entire nation around the word “Whatever.” But it would at least be a tolerable place to live if law-abiding Canadian citizens were allowed to defend themselves against people who break into their homes.

It is now legal to carry a gun on all the campuses of the Alamo Colleges district. The signs have been posted, the e-mails have been sent out to the students, and the faculty has been briefed all in preparation for the state law, which went into effect on August 1 at all two-year colleges across Texas. This follows on the footsteps of all state 4 year universities doing the same a year ago. But for some of the students at San Antonio College there is still some apprehension.

A McKeesport gun shop wants to expand, but some people in the community are saying no. The gun shop owner is defending his move, saying the expansion will actually help McKeesport. The shop sits tucked away, wedged in between two buildings on Market Street. It's maintained a pretty low profile for the past seven years.

When a police force makes the decision to take on a K-9 unit, what it's doing, in reality, is committing to a weapon that requires much more than routine maintenance and an occasional oil change. The Chatham County Sheriff's Office K-9s are full-fledged officers for the force, family members to their handlers, and a potential liability for the entire department.

It began in April. That’s when there appeared on YouTube an NRA recruitment video that raised eyebrows across the political spectrum. Speaking through a jaw clenched tight enough to crack walnuts, with an intensity that suggested a major artery might blow out at any second, conservative pundit Dana Loesch described an America wracked by carnage.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
You must understand, therefore, that there are two ways of fighting: by law or by force. The first way is natural to men, and the second to beasts. But as the first way often proves inadequate one must have recourse to the second. — Niccolo Machiavelli in "The Prince."
