A person can run out of words trying to describe how ridiculous it is for an otherwise modern nation to be awash in guns. The president tried again this week but had to pause a few seconds while tears replaced words. Those seconds were powerful.

It's inevitable when my husband and I visit family these days that the subject of violence in Baltimore comes up. Often, I'm the one who raises it. But when it came up last week on a trip to see my parents in Georgia, I got my back up. I thought of the 11-hour drive south and the billboards we passed along I-81 boasting guns for sale ("A Glock for Christmas"!), and of the story my brother-in-law, who lives in Florida, told of a neighbor stopping by to shoot the breeze in his suburban driveway, a handgun holstered at the man's waist as their kids played nearby.

The Daily Caller News Foundation analyzed 195 cases where gun owners used their firearms to successfully defend themselves from criminals, and we found a surprising number of kids defended themselves by pulling the trigger.

In light of President Barack Obama’s executive action on gun control Tuesday, TheDCNF looked at incidents in a period between July 2014 and July 2015. From our analysis, we’ve compiled five of the most incredible times kids protected themselves and their families from criminals by pulling out a gun.

Voters are fickle and often don’t pay much attention to races besides the top ones, like president and governor. That must be why Virginians narrowly elected Mark Herring state attorney general two years ago.

A majority of people apparently didn’t think it mattered a lot who held the office. Were they wrong!

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant has asked state representative Andy Gipson (R - Braxton, MS) to file legislation in the state to protect second amendment rights from what he calls "unconstitutional federal overreach."

The governor released the following statement Thursday, the day after President Obama announced new executive actions on gun control.
 

No Standard for When Private Gun Sellers Must Get License

Breitbart News previously reported that Obama’s executive expansion of background checks to cover more private sales has no minimum sales threshold that a private seller has to hit before he is considered “engaged in the business of dealing in firearms.” Therefore, the point at which a private seller must get a Federal Firearms License (FFL) and do a background check on every gun he sells is unclear at best.
 

CA: L.A. Explains How It Will Enforce Gun-Violence Restraining Orders

The Los Angeles city prosecutor Thursday unveiled measures to implement a new California gun law that allows relatives to get a court order to disarm mentally ill people who pose a danger to themselves or others.

"Gun-violence restraining orders will save lives," city attorney Mike Feuer said Thursday.

"As California becomes the first state to put this landmark law in place, we will do everything possible to make sure it is effective, here in Los Angeles, and throughout the state."
 

NY: Proposed Midtown shooting range likely to need special use permit

A proposal for a Midtown shooting range is likely to need Planning Board approval for a special use permit in order for it to operate, a city official said Thursday.

Assistant Corporation Counsel Daniel Gartenstein said the proposal for the range at a vacant building on Prince Street is likely to need the permit in addition to a site plan approval.

“My understanding, objectively speaking, is that the applicant would need one (a special permit),” said Gartenstein.

The permit, Gartenstein said, is needed because the shooting range is now proposed as a membership club and those facilities, under city rules, are required to receive a special permit in order to operate.
 

Donald Trump Vows to End 'Gun-Free Zones in Schools'

As President Obama was at a CNN town hall meeting discussing his passion for gun control, Donald Trump vowed to end gun-free zones.

The billionaire presidential candidate was hosting a campaign rally in Burlington, Vermont at the same time as Obama’s televised meeting, juxtaposing the two events.

Perhaps it was no mistake then that Trump chose to talk about gun control at the end of his speech.

“I will get rid of gun-free zones in schools — you have to — and on military bases on my first day. It gets signed. My first day – there’s no more gun free zones,” Trump told supporters as they cheered wildly.

The White House has announced that President Obama is working to adopt executive orders that will unilaterally restrict gun rights. Only a month ago, the New York Times openly advocated gun confiscation on page one.

The Times urged outlawing civilian ownership of “certain kinds of weapons” and acknowledged, “yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.”

That would certainly work better than forcing thousands of law-abiding gun owners in her community to make their status public along with their address, turning the website into a targeting system for criminals who want to steal firearms. Oh, didn’t Bishop think of that? She probably also doesn’t realize that it will allow criminals to ascertain which homes do not have the means for effective self-defense, as Ed Driscoll points out. I wonder what that would do to her “luxury of being white and middle class” neighborhood. One thing’s for sure: it would bring that Foxtrot police helicopter closer more often than she likes.
 

WA: Did governor’s grandstanding just jeopardize real gun safety work?

Yesterday, the Seattle-PI.com noted that “Between 2012 and 2014, there were 497 fatalities on Washington highways. The same period saw 665 gun fatalities. Of these, 520 were suicides.” Gov. Inslee made that revelation, and it opens the door to a discussion that anti-gunners here and across the country may not want to have.

Should suicide, which is a tragic personal act, be compared to the drive-by slaying of a rival gang member or some innocent bystander as “gun violence?” After all, if someone jumps from the Aurora Avenue Bridge in Seattle, what do you call that, “road rage?”
 

FL: Senate Panel Could Hold Key To Gun Bills

Florida lawmakers will enter the annual legislative session Tuesday with a full clip of firearm-related bills.
And it appears a Senate committee could play a pivotal role in determining whether two of the more controversial proposals advance this year.

One of the proposals (HB 4001 and SB 68) would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry firearms on state college and university campuses, while the other (HB 163 and SB 300) would allow people with the licenses to openly carry guns. Both issues await decisions in the Senate Judiciary Committee, where the campus-carry measure died last year.

A Willmar man drew a firearm on an alleged burglar he found in his living room Monday.

The homeowner had just returned to the 1000 block of Eighth Street Southwest in Willmar when he noticed items moved in his garage and kitchen.

...

Court documents say the homeowner drew a firearm he had a permit to carry and pointed it at the burglar for self-defense. Fellers allegedly put the knife down.

The homeowner called 911, then allowed Fellers to leave the residence. The Willmar Police Department later intercepted Fellers as he was entering a parked vehicle on Seventh Street Southwest with a female driver.

KY: Kentucky Legislators to Consider Gun Bill

President Obama's gun control plan has sparked a fierce debate around the country. He wants to expand background checks for gun sales, but some Kentucky lawmakers think his plan goes too far. So now they'll consider a bill that would declare all federal laws restricting gun ownership void in Kentucky.

It's been a 'hot' topic for the feds and the nationwide discussion surrounding gun control has landed the same topic in the Statehouse.

"Kentucky, the Commonwealth, will not abridge any of our Second Amendment rights," State Rep. Diane St. Onge said.

A bill that would let people walk the streets of Florida cities gun-in-hand would make it harder for police to protect the public and more likely for gun battles to erupt, county, state and West Palm Beach leaders said Thursday.

State Rep. Dave Kerner, D-Lake Worth, joined by West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio, Police Chief Bryan Kummerlen, police union leaders and three county commissioners called a press conference Thursday at police headquarters to oppose a bill (HB 163) that would allow Floridians with concealed weapons permits to carry their firearms in the open.

Yet at the December Beaufort County Board of Commissioners Gary Brinn and Ron Buzzeo, both elected as Republicans, voted against a motion offered by Hood Richardson and seconded by Frankie Waters to repeal the county ordinance that prohibits weapons under any circumstances (except by sworn law enforcement officers) openly carried or concealed, by citizens and county employees on county property. As would be expected, the three Democrat commissioners voted against repealing the ordinance and thus in favor of continuing the proscription of weapons on county property.

Following the widespread gun violence reported around the world, there has been a spike in the number of men and women in Michigan who are packing heat as a safety precaution, according to the Michigan State Police.
While participating in a lesson at a local gun range, nine out of the nine others who stood alongside me admitted to doing so because they “don’t feel as safe” as they have in previous years.

Craig Duncan of Southgate said he obtained his concealed pistol license a few months ago. He is one of a growing number of people in the state who are doing so.

But the AP concludes, “Those measures … would have had no impact in keeping weapons from the hands of suspects in several of the deadliest recent mass shootings that have spurred calls for tighter gun control.”

That’s true enough, but the AP’s shorthand — and Obama’s — conveys a false version of reality: First, people selling guns at gun shows are almost exclusively licensed dealers, and the few who aren’t typically run their buyers though one of the dealers anyway. Indeed, many gun show organizers require it.

Second, online sales are already illegal unless the gun is shipped to a licensed dealer, who conducts a background check for a fee.

It was just after 8 a.m. on a balmy winter Saturday, and 45 women had gathered at a gun range on the suburban outskirts of Des Moines to watch, lukewarm coffees and granola bars in hand, as a man aimed a decoy pistol directly at another man’s heart.

“The laser doesn’t lie, ladies.”

Dustin, our instructor for the morning and one of only two men in the room, had a small red dot hovering at the center of his chest. When he moved, the dot moved with him.

On January 6th, 2016 the Patel home invasion and murder case began in the Litchfield County Courthouse.

Connecticut Carry Director and American News and Information Services President Edward Peruta was on hand to videotape the trial after a hard fought battle for transparency in the court concluded just a day earlier.

But why would a court not want public transparency?
