NE: Nebraska Politicians Need Our Help to Learn About Constitutional Carry

We know a lot about people. We run into trouble when some of what we think we know is wrong. You’d think that making some gun owners take a firearms safety class would make everyone safer. We imagine that demanding a state license before we carry a firearm in public would make all of us safer too.

In fact, it turns out that disarming the good guys cost lives. Now we need to educate our legislators.
 

MI: Series of 4 bills introduced to criminalize unsafe gun storage

A series of bills introduced in Lansing this week spelled out harsh penalties for unsafe gun storage.

Senator Rosemary Bayer of Beverly Hills co-authored the package of four bills, which if passed, would require gun owners to store their weapons safely away from kids and would bring criminal penalties if improper gun storage leads to injury or death.

Oxford is part of Bayer's district and she says she thought a lot about the November 30 tragedy when crafting the bills.

But Bayer actually brought up the bills last summer before four students were killed inside Oxford High School with a gun that prosecutors say the suspect brought from home.

We’re lucky we have so much new ammo to talk about for 2022. With such high demand for ammunition lately, it’s been all but impossible for manufactures just to make enough of their most popular existing products, let alone produce new ones. And yet, here it is SHOT-show time again, and we’ve got a surprising number of new centerfire, rimfire, and shotgun ammo for target shooting, hunting, self-defense, and even suppressed shooting. The only thing that’s missing is a new load to knock out the sickness that’s disrupted life as we know it for the past two years. But while we wait for that, here are 21 of the hottest new cartridges, loads, and line extensions for 2022.
 

TN: Tennessee lawmaker presents self-defense bill in 'honor' of Kyle Rittenhouse

State Rep. Bruce Griffey’s (R) “Kyle’s Law,” HB1769, would require the state to reimburse defendants found not guilty of homicide charges due to self-defense. The payment would be decided in court and could be denied if the defendant was acting criminally.

“Kyle Rittenhouse had to defend himself not only against a first-degree murder charge over the course of a year-plus politically-motivated prosecution and a two-week jury trial,” Griffey said in a statement to Nashville's Fox 17. “But also against widespread defamation and false branding by corrupt media outlets, simply for exercising his American, God-given right to self-defense.”

Assembly Bill 498 lowers the minimum age to apply for a concealed carry permit from 21 years old, to 18 years old. Adults aged 18-20 are old enough to vote, serve on a jury, serve in the military, and enter into contracts. It is unreasonable for the law to discriminate against them by preventing them from exercising a fundamental right to defend themselves and their families.

They have been on multiple cable television networks, and have a presence on social media, and now the Second Amendment Foundation will take its informational message to the radio airwaves, warning about Joe Biden’s gun control plans.

SAF announced the upcoming radio blitz Wednesday morning. The timing, according to SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, is critical. Biden’s tanking poll numbers and his inability to push any of his other agenda items through Congress leaves one major target for the Delaware Democrat: Guns and the Second Amendment.

Even a rudimentary analysis of violence clearly displays an overwhelming trend: most violence that takes place in public happens in transitional spaces. There is violence in the home and in the workplace, both of which account for a great deal of overall assault and criminal activity each year, but outside of these specific locations, the most likely place for dangerous confrontation and criminal predation is within transitional spaces.

The ammo shortage is no longer news and has sharply limited most of our ability to practice. Fortunately, this scarcity is not new to the military which has used things like subcaliber conversions for nearly a century. A .22 conversion was one of the first accessories developed for the M1911 and the U.S. military even adopted a floating-chamber .22 conversion for their belt-fed .30 machine guns — both, interestingly, designed by Dave “Carbine” Williams of M1 carbine fame. With its 0.223″ bore, the M16/AR15 was and remains particularly easy to convert. Alas, it’s harder for us who love the .308 as $0.50 a shot was a good price in normal times. But there is hope.

Missy Truscott, real estate division of the Somerset County sheriff's office, said the applicants mark the self-defense box, which covers all the of the reasons people can apply for a permit. She also pointed out that while the Second Amendment provides the right for Americans to bear arms, there are regulations for concealing a firearm. “It isn’t a right; it’s a privilege,” she said about the handgun permits.

Charges will not be filed at this time against a clerk at Blackhawks Tobacco & Vape Shop who shot two alleged robbers, killing one, Tuesday night, Rock Island County State’s Attorney Dora Villarreal said.

“After a preliminary review of surveillance video and witness interviews, it appears the use of force by the employee was justified as self-defense and for the defense of others inside the store during the robbery,” she said in a media release posted on her Facebook page Wednesday night.

A bill in the state senate would establish a $50,000 fine for an Iowa city and law enforcement agency where an officer enforces federal gun regulations that are stricter than the state’s. The bill is part of a campaign that has prompted county supervisors to designate 33 Iowa counties as “Second Amendment Sanctuaries” where federal gun laws wouldn’t be enforced by local officials if the Biden Administration or congress were to enact tougher regulations. Senator Zach Nunn of Bondurant, a Republican congressional candidate in Iowa’s third district, is the sponsor of the so-called Second Amendment Preservation Act.

A buddy of mine bet me $20 I couldn’t work that into an article on AmmoLand News. Here’s the skinny though… It’s true depending on where you land. The 556mm has a challenger. A real contender. So, when I crack a movie line from “48 Hrs.” as humor, it’s valid. The 300BO may be the sheriff in town for a good many customers.

House Democrats want law enforcement officials to consider banning lawmakers from bringing guns into the Capitol and neighboring office buildings, a move that seems aimed specifically at GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado. On Wednesday, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland wrote to the Capitol Police Board, urging it to extend the long-standing firearm ban to lawmakers, who are typically exempt from any security screening when entering buildings within the complex.

The history around the development of the .500 Nitro Express is not entirely clear. It first appeared in the United Kingdom in the late 19th century, where it evolved from the .500 Express case. The difference between the two is that black powder is loaded in the .500 Express, and cordite is loaded in the .500 Nitro Express.

Given the year that 2021 was, what type of new handguns would you expect to see for 2022? The answer to that question should be obvious. With more and more folks wanting to carry handguns for personal protection, 2022 looks to be the year of the ultra-compact 9mm pistol. Almost without exception, the new-for-2022 handguns are small, 9mm, semi-automatics.

In a statement on behalf of the teen's family, who had previously called for criminal charges, civil rights attorneys Andrew M. Stroth and Steven Hart said they were "extremely troubled" by Bennett's decision not to prosecute.

"This is yet another instance of an unarmed Black teenager killed by law enforcement with impunity," and without "threat of reprisal or even an ounce of accountability," the statement said. "Similar to the George Floyd case, Cedric's death was caused by authorities obligated to protect him. In this case, they restrained Cedric in the prone position and took his breath away."

Though a pro-Second Amendment majority sits in the House of Delegates this session, that’s not stopping anti-gun lawmakers from continuing to push the same radical gun control they’ve pushed for the past two years. Here is one bill that shows they are as dedicated as ever to chipping away at the right to self-defense.

House Bill 590, sponsored by Delegate Schuyler VanValkenburg (D-72), requires anyone with firearms in the same residence as a minor under 18 years of age, to store them unloaded in locked containers, and store ammunition in separate locked containers. There are limited exceptions for firearms carried on the person, and firearms that are within both two feet of distance and eyesight.

Over the past several years, there has been much reporting and speculation over the lawsuit filed by New York Attorney General Leticia James calling for the dissolution of the National Rifle Association. The New York suit is just one in a blizzard of lawsuits filed by or against the nation’s largest firearms organization. It has been perceived as the most significant, posing the greatest threat to the Association, but when all the cards are laid out, it may not be the most significant.

Oakland on Tuesday became the latest California city to ban the components for easy-to-assemble and impossible-to-trace “ghost guns,” whose popularity has spiked in recent years amid a wave of gun violence in the city. The ordinance, which passed unopposed, takes aim at the rapid proliferation of the firearms, which can be ordered online and delivered without a serial number or the buyer undergoing a background check.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right. [Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846)]
