Last summer, two candidates for the Republican nomination for governor of Minnesota took two approaches to the issue of gun safety. Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty took a nuanced position. While saying he thought the 2nd Amendment protects individual gun owners, the former governor endorsed a ban on bump stocks; supported broadening universal background checks, saying he would like to see that system extending on a voluntary basis to non-licensed gun sales.

Alaska State Troopers say a homeowner confronted a teenage theft suspect and fired a shot when the young man came at him. Troopers at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday took a call about a home invasion northwest of North Pole.

The homeowner, carrying a gun, confronted Koonaloak outside the home.

Troopers say Koonaloak charged toward the homeowner, who fired a shot. No one was injured.

Koonaloak was jailed on suspicion of burglary, theft and criminal trespass and scheduled for arraignment Monday.

The Game Fish and Parks Department, on Friday Jan. 11, proposed an entirely new change to how deer hunting licenses are allocated to hunters. The new proposal would ask hunter to pick two out of the seven deer hunting licenses that allow the use of guns to apply for in the first license drawing. Hunters could get two licenses through the second drawing. Nonresident hunters would still be eligible for a number equal to 8 percent of resident licenses in West River, Black Hills and federal wildlife refuge hunting units during the first drawing.

In a move that could refuel a long-running debate, legislation has one again been proposed that would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry guns on college and university campuses. Freshman Republican Representative Anthony Sabatini from Lake County is sponsoring the bill for consideration during the 2019 legislative session, which starts March 5th. Under current law, people are barred from carrying guns on college and university campuses. Sabatini says that law makes no sense.

A Republican-led effort to add gun rights to the Iowa Constitution must start over because the state's top election office did not complete a key step in the yearslong process, a mistake they described as a "bureaucratic oversight." Republican lawmakers and pro-gun advocates said they were shocked and angry after Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate confirmed that his office failed to publish the required notifications that the Legislature had begun the process of amending the state constitution in Iowa newspapers.

Boston Mayor Martin Walsh wants to mandate that Doctors teach patients about gun safety. It appears to be another Orwellian definition. Gun safety in these circumstances seems to mean getting rid of guns. There is no mention of using known gun safety experts who have been working on the subject for decades.

The Department of Justice just updated its decades-old study asking criminals where they got the guns they used in committing the crime for which they were currently incarcerated. After asking 287,000 prisoners in 2016 where they got the gun they used, 90 percent of them “did not obtain it from a retail source” and less than one percent obtained it from a gun show.

National concealed-carry reciprocity and easier access to suppressors are two initiatives that have a new lease on life as the 116th Congress opened. U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., reintroduced the carry bill early this session “Concealed carry reciprocity is already well-established across our country with the average state recognizing permits for more than 30 other states,” he said in a press release. “National concealed carry reciprocity is common sense, and I’ll continue to lead the efforts to make it a reality.”

A new bill to override local gun control laws and allow Wyomingites to carry guns on school grounds and in other public places has been proposed with widespread support in both chambers of the Wyoming Legislature. The bill, Senate File 75, proposes to not only repeal most gun free zones across the state but would allow for the carry of concealed weapons anywhere in the state for permit holders. The bill would also clarify that only the Wyoming Legislature may regulate firearms, weapons and ammunition, therefore overriding local ordinances.

As Stephen Gutowski notes at the Free Beacon, there’s a truly radical proposal lurking in the Virginia governor’s push for gun control. From a press release:

Delegate Kathy Tran and Senator Adam Ebbin will patron legislation to ban the sale, purchase, possession, and transport of assault firearms in the Commonwealth. The bill also modifies the definition of assault firearm to any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday it will not take up a 2nd Amendment case that could have made guns more widely available to felons. The case was also significant for a legal question it has raised that is entirely unrelated to the underlying gun rights issue: whether acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker was constitutionally appointed.

Originally released in 2008, the peppy .327 Fed. Mag. revolver cartridge has been on the market for 10 years now. It was specifically designed to provide performance levels in the .38 Sp.l +P to light .357 Mag. range when fired from compact and standard size revolvers. At the same time, its smaller external dimensions allow additional chambers to be bored into cylinders. Snub-nose revolvers that usually hold five rounds of .38-cal. ammunition can hold six rounds of .327 Fed. Mag., while typical six-shot wheel guns can be loaded with seven or eight rounds.

Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, both D-Conn., introduced the latest version of the so-called “assault-weapons ban” with 26 other Democrats as co-sponsors.

Fewer Michiganders are hunting and fishing each year as baby boomers get older, a trend that could wallop the state’s economy and efforts to protect wildlife. That’s according to a group of lawmakers, conservationists and business representatives who urged the Legislature to entice a younger, more diverse generation outdoors.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state government, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. — Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
