"What more does the Vulcan chessmaster need to realize (assuming he doesn't already understand perfectly) that his -- and his masters’ -- decisions in this race are jeopardizing the Senate turnover, and with that they are jeopardizing everything else, all the way up to the composition of the Supreme Court and the future rulings it will make? What more does it take for Fairfax über alles 'loyalists' to understand their blind defense of NRA paid staff can lead to exactly the dire conditions Cox is warning us of as he asks for more money so he can keep the scares coming?"

The parents of a little boy critically injured when a police grenade landed in his crib are speaking exclusively with Channel 2 Action News.

They’re talking about a grand jury’s decision not to press charges against any of the deputies involved in the accident.

Channel 2′s Kerry Kavanaugh has been following story for months.

She traveled 800 miles to the boy’s new in Janesville, Wisconsin, where the family says they will continue to fight for justice.

The family told Kavanaugh that they felt like victims all over again when a grand jury announced they would not file criminal charges. They have been home in Wisconsin since July. Much has happened in the case since they left Georgia.

"Four Pennsylvania teenagers were arrested on Wednesday and charged with trying to mug a state legislator who exchanged gunfire with one of them in the late-night incident, police said."

"Representative Marty Flynn, a Democrat from Scranton, fired two shots after a robber pointed a pistol at him and Representative Ryan Bizzarro, a Democrat from Erie, and demanded their wallets at about 11 p.m. on Tuesday, the House Democratic Caucus said in a statement on Wednesday."

"It was difficult to determine who shot first, Flynn or his alleged assailant, Harrisburg police Sergeant Gabriel Olivera told a news conference."

"'Guns were drawn and shots fired,' he said. 'It happened almost simultaneously.'"

"No one was wounded." ...

Utter was promoted from the Court of Appeals to the high court in 1971 by then-Gov. Dan Evans, a Republican. While on the bench, Utter broke ground, including an opinion in 1978 that established a battered woman’s right to self-defense. After leaving the court, he led a King County task force in 1997 that led to therapeutic courts that focused on mental health.

As unlikely as it may seem to those of us who pay attention to Second Amendment issues, there may still be some Florida Mayors Against illegal Guns (MAIG) Mayors who have been mislead by lies fed to them by Bloomberg's anti-gun group. We have the emails sent to Florida Mayors from MAIG claiming that they support the Second Amendment, we even have emails from known anti-gun Police Chiefs and Sheriffs reassuring some mayors that MAIG is just "helping to target illegal guns, not legal gun owners".

A homeowner shot and critically injured a man early Thursday who was trying to break into his home, police say.

Police say the attempted home invasion happened at about 1:40 a.m. Thursday in the 1600 block of Helen Street. The area is close to Cass and North Florissant avenues.

The injured man was taken to St. Louis University Hospital after being shot in the face. Police say he was in critical but stable condition.

The homeowner wasn't arrested. The shooting could be considered justified under the castle doctrine, Missouri's expanded self-defense law.

October 16, at 10:30 a.m., the DC City Council will hold a public hearing to consider Bill 20-930, the “License to Carry a Pistol Amendment Act of 2014.”

Despite sounding like a step in the right direction, this act’s name is deceptive. Its language is rife with bureaucratic hurdles, including long mandatory training requirements, as well as requiring applicants to undergo the already restrictive and burdensome process of registering a firearm in the District.

Ares Armor, a Southern California-based retailer of products that allow law-abiding gun owners to build legal firearms at home, has announced that it will renew its financial commitment to The Calguns Foundation, a gun rights advocacy organization which advances Second Amendment rights through strategic civil litigation, education, and other programs.

Ares CEO Dimitri Karras said that the company’s decision to support the gun rights group was “the right thing to do for many reasons, not the least of which is that Calguns is leading the charge for Second Amendment rights in California.”

I am grateful to the Commission for the invitation to share my views on the subject of Stand Your Ground (SYG) laws. These laws now exist in the majority of the States, and they have had a measurable impact on deadly violence and the criminal justice systems in many of them. I will begin with a basic explanation of what these laws say, especially how they differ from the long-established law of self-defense in Anglo-American law. I will then examine the empirical evidence concerning how SYG laws work; this evidence has emerged in just the last couple of years. I will then discuss implicit bias, which is the source considerable racial disparity in the enforcement of SYG laws, and the rest of the criminal justice system.

Just miles from where the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin launched a national debate over stand your ground laws, a federal commission is holding a hearing on whether there are racial disparities in the application of the law.

The U.S. Civil Rights Commission on Friday will hold the hearing in Orlando's tourist district, about 30 miles from the Sanford gated community where the 17-year-old Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman.

It is no secret that American handgunners have a love affair with the M1911. It also will shock very few that not everyone finds an M1911-style pistol easy to carry concealed on an everyday basis. For those who value the great trigger, single-action operation, and aesthetic lines of the M1911 but desire a smaller and lighter handgun for discreet carry, Colt offers the Mustang XSP. The XSP is a polymer-frame handgun that shares many of the features and the basic operation of the .45 warhorse, but is chambered in .380 ACP.

Bag’s use of the word accident isn’t one—when a battered woman kills her abuser, it isn’t usually planned. It’s a last-ditch attempt by the woman to defend herself, according to experts—though many battered women who kill are not credited with self-defense but with murder, or, if they are lucky, manslaughter.

D.C.'s police chief expects to issue concealed carry permits after the application process opens later this month, despite concerns from Second Amendment advocates that the law is too restrictive.

At a Council hearing on the License to Carry a Pistol Amendment Act, created in response to a court ruling that found D.C.'s ban on carrying handguns in public to be unconstitutional, Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy Lanier suggested three changes to the law as written.

A federal judge in Idaho found that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers practice of not allowing lawful carry of firearms on land controlled by the agency is in violation of the Second Amendment.

The ruling was handed down this week in the case of Morris v U.S. Army Corps of Engineers decided in the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho. It involved two plaintiffs, Elizabeth Morris and Alan Baker who filed suit in 2013 after they wrote to the Corps commander for the area to obtain permission to carry a functional firearm on recreational land they intended to visit and did not receive a reply.

People who carry concealed handguns near public events and demonstrations in the nation's capital shouldn't have to be personally warned by a police officer before they are subject to arrest, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said Thursday.

Lanier testified at a hearing on the D.C. Council's proposal to allow residents and visitors to get concealed handgun permits for the first time in nearly 40 years. The bill was drafted in response to a judge's ruling this summer that struck down the District of Columbia's ban on carrying guns outside the home.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier says taxi drivers should be banned from carrying concealed handguns.

Lanier made the recommendation during a hearing on a bill that would allow District of Columbia residents and visitors to get concealed handgun permits for the first time in nearly 40 years.

At Lanier's urging, the bill also includes restrictions on carrying guns near dignitaries or at high-profile events. But she says carrying a weapon should be restricted areas where carrying a weapon would be prohibited to the grounds and parking lots surrounding government buildings.

MADISONVILLE, Texas - The Madisonville Police Officer facing charges after the death of his K-9 partner has resigned.

Officer Gary Laws resigned Tuesday. He was officially charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty on Wednesday. Walker County Assistant District Attorney Stephanie Stroud said Laws was arrested Wednesday afternoon, and released on bond a short time later.

Investigators say Laws left his police dog, Baron, inside the patrol unit when he came home from his overnight shift on September 12. Baron was trapped inside the car for four hours. The temperature outside reached the mid 90’s.

"The dog ultimately died of heat stroke, or heat exhaustion," said Stroud
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. Indeed I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order. — Adolf Hitler, April 11, 1942. (Source: "Hitler's Table-Talk at the Fuehrer's Headquarters 1941-1942", Dr. Henry Picker, ed. (Athenaeum Verlag, Bonn, 1951).)
