Where are the most important opportunities and dangers for the Second Amendment in the congressional and gubernatorial races? Here’s a state-by-state rundown, including every gubernatorial and U.S. Senate election, plus all of the U.S. House races that Stuart Rothenberg does not classify as safe.

To summarize: The three gubernatorial races that are close and that feature major differences between the candidates on Second Amendment issues are Washington, Montana, and New Hampshire.

MILLER: D.C.'s mace control, part 4
Submitted by: Anonymous

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
It is easier to buy an illegal handgun than a can of self-defense spray on Washington, D.C. streets. That’s because the city has a law intended to dissuade merchants from selling mace by forcing them to track and register every can sold. This leaves law-abiding people with nothing but their hands when confronted by a criminal.
I’ve been investigating the District's mace laws since a police detective told me I needed to register self-defense spray. I was concerned because I’d received a threatening call, but more than that, I was dealing with reality of living in a city in the midst of a crime wave.

This summer, I almost died when a man with several guns opened fire on a packed movie theater audience at the midnight premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises.”
I had stopped in Aurora, Colo., for the night with my best friend. We were on a cross-country bicycling tour of America’s heartland and had already covered 2,750 miles through 10 states. Countless strangers along the way had offered us food, housing, money and, in one case, a salsa-dancing night held in our honor. Aside from a few careless drivers, not a single person ever came close to harming us.

By Michael Allen,
According to a new study at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, state gun laws that allow some criminals to own guns, legally, is contributing to the high rate of gun violence in the U.S.
U.S. gun homicide rates are 22 times higher than the average of all other high-income countries. Guns were used to kill more than 31,000 people in the United States in 2010, reports RawStory.com.

Emmaus High School's rifle team has a new practice range starting November 12. The East Penn School Board has approved an agreement with the Emmaus Borough Council that allows the team to practice at the Emmaus police department's firearms range during its competitive season, which lasts until Feb. 18, 2013.

The agreement calls for the district to provide its own locked storage cabinets for team equipment. Previously, the team practiced at Shimerville Recreation's indoor shooting range in Emmaus, but due to the death of the owner, that facility has closed down, President Charles Ballard said.

LUNENBURG -- Town officials say their hands may be tied when it comes to constant concerns being lodged by a resident against the North Leominster Rod & Gun Club, because the club may be exempt from some laws on the books.

Paul Harris, whose family has lived in town for years, has been lodging complaints with the town since the late 1990s because he believes the noise coming from the range is too loud and the club has improperly expanded, according Mike Sauvageau, the building commissioner and zoning officer for the town.

When the County sends a CHP applicant his permit, they have also been sending two other documents: the judge’s order authorizing the permit’s issuance and another letter ordering the CHP holder to “carry both (Order and permit) with you at all times.”

Chicago police are using a new technology that can listen for gunshots and help the responding officers pinpoint where they were fired. The technology, called ShotSpotter, relies on an acoustics-based, GPS-equipped system to feed police the location of a gunshot.

"Not only do we learn where the shots are being fired but now those officers can actually turn cameras on the location, get actionable intelligence that they can feed to the officers in the field as they're approaching," Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy explained Thursday via an NBC Chicago broadcast.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control says it is urging waterfowl hunters to check hunting bags, coats, boats and other gear to make sure they are not carrying any shot gun shells with lead shot. Department officials say small-game hunters sometimes forget to remove boxes of lead shot from their hunting bags and coats.

Oklahomans will soon be able to start packing heat in public. The new open carry law goes into effect on November 1.

The new open carry law means those with a concealed carry license will be able to carry their gun in full view, but there are some limits under the new law. Guns are still prohibited in government buildings, some public events and in schools. It's also up to businesses to decide their own policies.
 

When thwarted in efforts to trample 2nd Amendment, CSGV goes after the 1st

On the morning of October 25, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence discovered a St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner column from back in March, about what we will call "Constitutional pyrotechnics," that they find particularly troubling:

Unfortunately for CSGV, there is exactly zero truth to that statement. Nowhere in the March article is there any urging "to kill elected officials, policy [sic] and military service members. " Or perhaps CSGV does not consider that so unfortunate, after all, given their apparent indifference to whether or not anything they charge is actually true.

Leavenworth, Kan. -- Fall turkey season is here and waterfowl hunting soon will be. Are you ready?

Every year, millions of hunters nationwide flock to the waterways, hardwoods, bottomlands, rolling hills, pine forests and numerous other landscapes in pursuit of varies types of birds or fowl. And, every year, some of them walk out of the hunt with a hollow feeling of disgust because they missed what seemed like easy shots.

Though there's nothing these folks can do about the past, they can do something to keep from missing their shots in the future. Being prepared, knowing their firearms and spending a little time on the shooting range can and will remedy shooting problems that have humbled many turkey hunters.

Kurt Hofmann is the St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Due to a horrorific traffic accident which left him in a coma for nearly a month, Kurt now gets about in a wheelchair. For someone for whom life has played such a cruel trick, he is remarkably well-adjusted, even-tempered, thoughtful, and full of life. This is especially true when you consider that at an earlier time in his life Kurt served our country as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division.

I have had the pleasure to meet Kurt in person more than once and to have an ongoing correspondence with him. I consider Kurt a friend and one of the good guys.

Super cop Don Johnson - caught super-exposed?
Nobody can accuse the Detroit Police department these days of being anything less than transparent. After placing a call to the mayor's office, Inspector Don Johnson, commanding officer of the Homeland Security division, was suspended with pay pending the results of an Internal Affairs investigation. Police sources say Johnson apparently texted a female subordinate a snapshot of his "johnson."
We're also told the female subordinate is married but the photograph was found by her boyfriend, also a cop and also her subordinate.
Trying to get our hands around this one, we reached out to Johnson.

As Phil and I have noted, we’re doing a series of radio interviews to promote "The Total Gun Manual" which, I understand, may get us a Nobel Prize. (If Barack Obama can get a Nobel for doing absolutely nothing, why shouldn’t we collect one for putting out the greatest gun book ever written?) Most of the talk-shot hosts I’ve encountered have been completely ignorant about guns, and admitted it, and did good interviews. However, along the way I’ve gotten some odd questions, and a couple of hostile ones. Some examples:

Have I ever shot anyone? (No, just unlucky I guess.)

Am I armed, right now, this minute? (No. The most dangerous thing in the vicinity is the cat, who is in his morning coma.)
 

25 wolves killed so far in Montana in archery, rifle hunts

BUTTE – Montana’s wolf season is off to a fast start, with 25 of the large predators killed after a six-week archery season and just over a week of rifle hunting.

Biologists with Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks are hoping to reduce the number of wolves in the state in an effort to cut down on predation of game animals and livestock attacks. The FWP Commission this year approved an aggressive wolf hunting season that includes no statewide quota, a season longer than four months and trapping.

As of Thursday afternoon, hunters had killed 25 wolves. And the kill was well distributed, with wolves taken in 12 of the state’s 17 wolf management units.


 

How to Prevent Gun Rampages

In the wake of the violent rampage by Radcliffe Haughton last weekend, some state legislators plan to reintroduce a bill that would force domestic abusers, who are already required by state law to surrender any weapons, to prove they’ve complied with the law. Haughton was under a four-year restraining order for domestic abuse.

But such a law wouldn’t have helped in his case. Haughton may in fact have surrendered his weapon. But he just went out and bought another gun — not from a store, but from one of the many private gun sellers, who are completely unregulated.
 

The Insane Defense of the “Castle Doctrine” Gone Wild

One amazing thing about the recent spate of laws that make it easier to shoot people and get away with it is how much prosecutors hate them. “It’s an abomination,” one Florida prosecutor told the Sun Sentinel, referring to the state’s “stand your ground” law at the center of the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin.

And now we’re hearing from Montana’s county attorneys, sheriffs, and police chiefs, all of whom oppose the 2009 law that expanded the “castle doctrine” to give homeowners more leeway to kill potential intruders.

ILION — Remington Arms has received a $4.2 million contract to manufacture 5,000 Bushmaster M4A3 Carbines for the country of Oman’s Royal Police, according to U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, R-Barneveld.

“This is great news for Remington and the Mohawk Valley’s own workforce, as the work will be conducted right here in Ilion, Hanna said in a statement. “The expertise and quality of Remington and their centuries of experience are clearly recognized not only by our own men and women in uniform who depend on their products to keep them safe on the front lines, but also nations around the world.”

To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense or by partial orders of towns...is a dissolution of the government. — John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America (1787-1788).
