The new owner of a downtown Jacksonville building is hoping to create a space where people can learn to keep themselves safe, whether through self-defense or firearms know-how.

Matt Summers of American Defense Tactics, who now owns the property at 59 E. Central Park Plaza, has been busy renovating the building into three spaces.

One space already is being rented and used for a jiu-jitsu class.

Investigators believe a Wednesday shooting that killed a man in Tranquillity was self-defense.

Mark Castro, 27 of San Joaquin, was shot and killed Wednesday after detectives believe he had forced his way into a trailer and was confronted by the homeowner. Investigators say the homeowner told Castro to leave and instead of complying, Castro “presented a threat to the homeowner.”
 

ME: Auburn man’s acquittal in shooting death is rare example of a successful claim of self-defense

Wednesday’s acquittal of Gage Dalphonse in a 2019 shooting death at the Auburn Walmart was just the second time in more than two years that a jury has found a defendant not guilty of both murder and manslaughter.

It’s rare for Maine juries to hand up “not guilty” verdicts in murder trials. What’s even rarer is what happened Wednesday: A jury concluded a defendant who claimed he was acting in self-defense was guilty of neither murder nor manslaughter. More often than not in that circumstance, a jury that finds a defendant not guilty of murder finds him guilty of a lesser manslaughter charge.

Honolulu’s prosecuting attorney says he won’t file criminal charges in a fatal road rage case. Prosecutor Steve Alm says the driver who was stabbed was the unprovoked aggressor and that there’s not enough evidence to disprove the other driver acted in self-defense. A spokesperson for the prosecutor says Gerald Waialae appeared to be intoxicated and intentionally rammed the car of the man who later stabbed him.

Tulsa Police said a homeowner was alerted someone was trying to get into his house, and when he arrived, the suspect was carrying out some of his belongings. At gunpoint, the homeowner attempted to prevent the suspect from leaving while he called 911. The suspect attacked him with an unknown metal object, and that’s when he fatally shot the intruder in the torso.

The day the Aussies gave up their guns triggered the beginning of the end of their liberty.

Now the land Down Under is a full-blown police state. Proud, strong, free, productive Australia is gone.

This harsh, bitter transformation should be a warning to nations still clinging to the God, guns, and freedoms the hard-core left deeply despises.

Aussies protesting totalitarian COVID-19 restrictions, the harshest in the free world, are fighting a seemingly hopeless battle for basic rights and freedoms by pelting rocks, bottles, golf balls, and batteries against heavily armed riot police.
 

Does Your City Hate the Second Amendment?

Last week, several American cities submitted an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief in support of New York’s restrictive public carry laws. New York’s law is the subject of pending litigation before the Supreme Court in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, which has the potential to be a blockbuster Second Amendment case.

New York’s carry law effectively bans all public carriage of firearms, limiting the right to a privileged few for whom state agents grant discretionary permits. A system that—shocking to exactly no one—is rife with abuse and corruption.

The lawsuit filed Thursday in San Diego federal court, hours after Mayor Todd Gloria signed the ordinance, seeks to block enforcement of the ban prohibiting the possession, purchase, sale, receipt and transportation of non-serialized, unfinished frames and receivers, and non-serialized firearms, all of which are commonly known as ghost guns.

ATF Quietly Ruled Shoulder Stocked Pistols are “Short Barreled Rifles” in 1961

A proposed rule change about arm braces on pistols prompted this correspondent to research the history of shoulder stocks, pistols, and the National Firearms Act (NFA).

When the National Firearms Act of 1934 was passed, pistols with shoulder stocks were not mentioned. Short barreled rifles were not intended to be in the law. They were inserted at the insistence of a confused congressman on the House Ways and Means Committee.

Fitting a pistol with a shoulder stock had always been an option. The 1934 NFA was imagined to be regulating shotguns which had been shortened to create concealable, awkward pistols, not pistols that had a stock added to them, creating a carbine more accurate, but less concealable than a regular pistol.
 

Know Your Environment: Who Will Be Prosecuting?

One mechanism of attack is the rampant and blatant appointment of prosecutors who are diametrically opposed to the individual’s liberty to defend themselves. There is good evidence that suggests that a particular billionaire, who has always been an enemy of the Second Amendment, pours countless thousands of dollars into local politics all over the nation to support the run for office of just such district attorneys. Such prosecutors will let violent looters and rioters walk immediately but will throw the book at an individual that rightly defends themselves from violence. Make no mistake; this is by design.
 

NY: Manatt Files Supreme Court Amicus Brief in Second Amendment Case on Behalf of the New York County Lawyers Association

Manatt’s brief, which supports Respondents, underscored that the core right of people to protect themselves identified in Heller is implicated only marginally, if at all, by a law that rationally limits the circumstances under which guns can be carried outside one’s home or business, such as on subways, buses, crowded city streets, and public parks and buildings—including in the vicinity of courthouses and government buildings—by requiring a showing of proper cause.

The amicus brief explains the wide-ranging implications and threat to public safety and to the workings of the judicial system—particularly in populous areas—were the Court to allow the concealed carrying of weapons without a showing of proper cause.

Several local affiliates of the higher education and healthcare workers union AFT Vermont have voted to withdraw from the union group Vermont AFL-CIO after it passed a resolution endorsing gun rights.

AFT Vermont president Deb Snell called for the resolution to be revoked, arguing that it is insensitive to the national issue of gun violence.

"At the national level, teachers have experienced first-hand the tragedy of school shootings because of our national inaction — inaction in part due to the profiteering of arms manufacturers," Snell said.

Often times I start off a gun review by stating my initial impressions and general pleasantries around a given product and a rough allusion to how said product performed. The idea is that you would then read the rest, taking in the points of my vague introduction as I describe the various selling points of the gun or gear in question. This review is something a bit different than what I usually do because this is a gun that deserves a different set of criteria to grade it. I think you’ll be surprised.
 

Biden’s Purported Gun Czar is Back

Beto O’Rourke (D), the guy President Joe Biden (D) once said would help him “take care of the gun problem,” is reportedly seriously eyeing a run for the governorship in his home state of Texas.

You remember Beto, right? Surely, you must.

He’s that former congressman from Texas who, in his rather bold attempt to run for the office Biden currently occupies, said, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15” during a primary debate.

Monday, Sep. 13, the Spartanburg City Council voted unanimously to pass the first reading of an ordinance that would prohibit open carry of firearms at permitted city events.

Councilwoman Ruth Littlejohn, like many others, believes that there is a substantial difference between open and concealed carry.

"We've reached a point in our society where people are so easy to anger. And we have a gun at reach. We may not walk away to cool off. In my opinion, open carry only promotes aggression," Littlejohn said.

A National Rifle Association board member called for the removal of the organization’s entire board and Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre, saying the actions were required for meaningful reform of the nonprofit gun-rights group as it battles corruption allegations.

The unusual move came in a series of legal filings Friday by Roscoe “Rocky” Marshall, an NRA board member since early this year, who is seeking to intervene on behalf of the association’s members in a continuing legal battle in state court in New York between the organization and New York Attorney General Letitia James.
 

Congressman Madison Cawthorn Introducing Bill To Ban Military From Enacting ‘Red Flag Laws’

On Friday, Congressman Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) announced plans to introduce legislation to prohibit the U.S. military code from placing restrictions on servicemembers’ right to bear firearms.

The bill, entitled the Protect Gun Rights Act, targets Democrat efforts to strip servicemembers’ rights to keep and bear arms through red flag laws.

“Democrats have no right to dictate to our servicemembers, the most patriotic and dedicated Americans among us, when or how they exercise their Second Amendment rights,” said Cawthorn on Friday. “Our military needs to be funded, built up and defended, but Democrats want to, instead, disarm our servicemembers. This is an outrageous action and I will defend their right to keep and bear arms.”
