Armed Self-Defense for January 2016

Honest and law abiding citizens defend themselves with a firearm every day. I’m sure you’re shocked at that news since democrat politicians and news media tell us that armed self-defense never happens. Here are examples from the last few weeks. These ordinary citizens were thrown into extraordinary situations. These armed defenders were both surprised… and prepared. They saved their life and protected those they love.

Hundreds of badges, credentials, cell phones and guns belonging to Department of Homeland Security employees have been lost or stolen in recent years -- raising serious security concerns about the potential damage these missing items could do in the wrong hands.

Inventory reports, obtained by the news site Complete Colorado and shared with FoxNews.com, show that over 1,300 badges, 165 firearms and 589 cell phones were lost or stolen over the span of 31 months between 2012 and 2015.

Submitters note: This is how criminals get guns. Obama ought to worry about cleaning up his own agency instead of imposing more regulations on law abiding citizens to close the non existent gun show loophole.

He was the most photographed American of the 19th century, an eloquent advocate of the right to arms. She exercised that right heroically, in armed missions to lead slaves out of bondage. Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman exemplified the best of America—and fought against the worst.

When Congress passed the 14th Amendment in 1866, why was its protection of Second Amendment rights considered so important? In the Supreme Court’s decision in McDonald v. Chicago, Justice Clarence Thomas turned to Douglass for that answer.

It seems the issue of whether guns should be allowed on college campuses comes up at least once a year.

An East Alabama state lawmaker says yes and he’s wanting the voters to decide.

State Representative Mack Butler says gun free zones need to be eliminated on college and university campuses that's why he's proposing a state constitutional amendment allowing people with concealed-carry permits to carry them on campuses.
 

WV: WV advances bill on concealed-carry without permit

For a second straight year, West Virginia lawmakers have taken up a bill to allow people to carry concealed handguns without obtaining permits.

House Judiciary Committee members took up the bill (HB 4145) Wednesday morning, shortly after an early public hearing where proponents called the current $100 fee for five-year conceal-carry permits an unreasonable tax on their right to bear arms, while others said allowing people to carry guns without training or background checks endangers police and public safety.

...

Legislative leaders are taking the bill up early this session, with the intent of assuring that the Legislature still will be in session to vote to override a potential gubernatorial veto this year.

Last night’s highly-publicized shooting in Seattle that left two dead and three wounded in a “homeless camp” along Interstate 5 known as “The Jungle” has had an interesting aftermath because so far, no official has declared that the solution to this crime is to crack down on gun owners.
 

Justice Obama? ‘President’ Hillary would consider it, ABC reports

After eight years of Barack Obama in the White House, American voters might have the chance to see him appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court for life, because Hillary Clinton yesterday told a crowd in Iowa that, if elected, she would “certainly take that under advisement,” ABC reported today.

Her statement, in reaction to an audience question at a campaign event in Deocorah, may raise eyebrows in the Second Amendment community. Even just the thought of a possible Obama presence on the high court may cause American gun owners to turn out en masse this November at the polls, as they did in 1994 when they flipped Congress to Republican control.
 

Germany: More Germans are arming themselves

Germany has strict gun laws which stipulate that weapons may only be purchased under very specific circumstances. But with the so-called small arms permit, citizens are allowed to own weapons, such as gas cartridge guns or signal pistols. These may also be carried outside the home. The permit costs between 50 and 60 euros and the only restriction is that the applicant be a minimum 18 years of age.

Prosecutors Wednesday declined to file charges against eight Los Angeles Police Department officers involved in a 2013 shooting in Torrance that left two newspaper delivery women injured in the midst of a manhunt for former Officer Christopher Dorner.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office cited “insufficient admissible evidence” to prove the officers weren’t acting in self-defense or in defense of others.

The Cleveland County sheriff is taking shots at the president, saying his morally wrong "minions" are attacking our personal freedoms.

As a result, he's making an easier path to apply for a concealed carry gun license.

Some people are really upset, but it's not that they disagree people have the right to carry guns.

They said, as an elected official, the sheriff should respect the president no matter what their differences.

Nobody wants to take your guns. That’s what most mainstream pro-gun control Democrats say ad nauseam at various rallies. There’s also the “I support the Second Amendment, but…” that advocates of gun control say prior to offering some pie-in-the-sky policy proposals that usually venture into bans on so-called assault rifles, limiting magazine sizes, or an all-out ban on semi-automatic firearms. That’s essentially a gun ban.
 

Gun Myth Debunked – Armed Citizens Will Cause ‘Blood In The Streets’

We know morbid gun fear – hoplophobia – drives gun-control advocates to invent mythical gun problems, and use these myths in gun-control campaigns.

These folks need to recognize they have a problem and seek treatment. They don’t. One telltale symptom of hoplophobia is adamant denial. They sublimate their fears into politics where they do immeasurable harm instead of into needed treatment and intervention.
 

The Ultimate Goal of the Antigun Movement

The ultimate goal of the antigun movement is this: the universal elimination of civilian firearms’ ownership and possession.

This is true and incontrovertible. Everything the antigun movement does is directed to the attainment of that goal. Nothing the antigun movement does diverges from the path to that goal. When asked to admit the truth of the assertion, the antigun movement, and its sounding board, the mainstream corporate media, will deny it, curtly and vehemently.

Nobel Prize laureate Steven Weinberg--arguably the most famous person at the University of Texas at Austin campus--leaves no room for doubt as to where he stands on the “campus carry” law that will soon allow gun owners to walk around freely with holstered firearms.

He’s very much against the measure.

“I will put it into my syllabus that the class is not open to students carrying guns,” he said during a recent meeting of UT’s Faculty Council covered by the Austin American-Statesman newspaper. “I may wind up in court; I’m willing to accept that responsibility.”

Be careful what you ask for, because you just might just get it.

Police are investigating after a person was shot in downtown Louisville.

The shooting happened at 5th and Jefferson streets shortly before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

According to police, a woman went to her vehicle in a parking garage and was approached by a man who displayed a knife and said, “Give me everything you have.”

The woman then pulled out her gun and shot him while she was in the parking garage, officials said.

In October of 2015, Barack Obama revealed his final year’s key agenda item — undermining the Second Amendment on the pretense of “solving” America’s “gun problem.”

He directly referenced confiscation of guns as the centerpiece of that agenda: “We know that other countries [which] have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it.” Great Britain and Australia have indeed confiscated guns — but with dubious results.

The occupation of a remote wildlife refuge turned violent yesterday when federal agents stopped two vehicles carrying protesters to a town hall meeting in John Day, Oregon. Victoria Sharp, a passenger in one of those vehicles, has reported that federal agents opened fire on the group without provocation after conflicting and confusing demands for the protesters to surrender. Sharp reported that shots were first fired at Ryan Payne as he complied with orders to show his hands out of the window of the vehicle in which she was riding, but that the shots missed. Payne was calling for police to not shoot, as there were women in the vehicle, and exited the vehicle, asking that the women be allowed out.

There were plenty of surprises from SHOT Show this year, but perhaps one of the most unexpected was the reveal of a new line of expanding and fragmenting slugs from OATH Ammo. The segmented slugs look like something out of science fiction, and OATH boldly states that they’ve solved the age-old problem of over-penetration from traditional 12 gauge slugs.

The bill would have removed municipal ordinances in direct violation of Article One – Section One of the Nebraska Constitution to bring cities into compliance with our State Constitution by ending the patchwork of firearms restrictions and ensuring uniform treatment for all law abiding gun owners.

This morning, however, a few senators chose politics over principle when they voted against the bill. These include Senators Galen Hadley District 37, Bob Krist District 10, Roy Baker District 30, Heath Mello District 5, and Adam Morfeld District 46.
 

Should CDC conduct gun violence prevention research?

It’s been almost 20 years since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s gun violence research was stymied over concerns from conservatives the agency was using its findings for anti-gun ends.

Mark Rosenberg saw it differently. He spent 20 years with the CDC and from 1994 to 1999 he was director of the agency’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, where he developed an approach to violence prevention grounded in science.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
