How big a problem is violence in the USA? Here is some of the data for 2017. It surprised me, and it might surprise you.

How do we improve one area without making things worse?

An official says the police chief of a small southeastern Michigan community was accidentally shot in the foot after he slipped on ice and his gun discharged.

Carleton Village President Larry Buckingham tells the Monroe News that Chief Roy Johnson was taken to a hospital Thursday with what was described as a “minor gunshot wound.” The newspaper says he’s expected to be OK.

Carleton police were responding to a breaking and entering call in the village when Johnson slipped.

A suspect in the break-in was apprehended.
 

What Is A Concealed Carry Badge And Do You Need One?

Having a badge of some sort MIGHT give you a few seconds before the police start shooting at you if they see you with a gun – however, it’s a much better idea to have your handgun secured and concealed before they arrive on the scene.
 

OH: Ohio House approves ‘stand your ground’ legislation

The Ohio House of Representatives approved a bill on Wednesday to eliminate a person’s duty to retreat before using force in self-defense.

Currently, the Ohio Revised Code recognizes a duty to retreat unless a person is in his/her house or vehicle (an exception known as “the castle doctrine”). The new House bill would broaden this exception into a “stand your ground” law: “…the person has no duty to retreat before using force in self-defense, defense of another, or defense of that person’s residence, if that person is in a place in which the person lawfully has a right to be.”
 

WA: NRA sues to stop I-1639's gun-control provisions

The NRA and the Bellevue, Washington-based Second Amendment Foundation sued in U.S. District Court in Seattle on Thursday, saying the measure violates the right to bear arms and strays into the regulation of interstate commerce, which is the province of the federal government.

"We are disappointed that too many voters were fooled into supporting this 30-page gun control scheme, despite overwhelming law enforcement opposition," Second Amendment Foundation Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb said in a written statement. "This measure will have a chilling effect on the exercise of the constitutional rights of honest citizens while having no impact on criminals, and we will not let it go unchallenged."

DuPage County judge Thursday acquitted a Lisle man of battery charges in a 2017 road rage stabbing incident.

Lloyd Rose, 31, was found not guilty in an incident in which, he admitted, he stabbed another driver. But Rose said the other motorist was pummeling him. Rose said he feared for his life when he pulled out a knife and stabbed Matthew Frasier about 10 times. Frasier, of Naperville, spent three days in a hospital, but he recovered from the wounds.
 

Ban All Semiautomatic Firearms

Sadly, Bahney loses his nerve toward the end, implying that we should ban only “particularly lethal” semiautomatics. By contrast, I would ban all semiautomatics. That would leave the gun owners of America with three types of weapons they could legally own:

Single-action revolvers
Shotguns
Bolt-action/pump-action rifles
 

The Illusive Second Amendment

I watched Tom Selleck on The Rosie O’Donnell show May 19, 1999, where O’Donnell ambushed Selleck on his pro-gun control support of the Second Amendment. Although he is one of my heroes of the TV world, he was ill-prepared to stand his ground. He did the best job he could but a little research to support one’s views as a spokesperson would have allowed Selleck to wipe the floor with O’Donnell.
 

SWORD International Introduces the MK-17 Rifle to the Civilian Market

Previously, this designated marksman rifle was only available to military special forces. This rifle was designed to give the military marksman a semi-automatic weapons system that was lightweight, reliable and highly accurate.

Some of the innovative features of the MK-17 include an ambi-bolt catch/release pad located near the lower-front portion of the trigger well, as well as a fold-down side charging handle. These design features allow for a much more natural handling of the rifle by the shooter. Weighing just 9 pounds the MK-17 feels and looks like a carbine, but shoots much more like a precision bolt-action rifle.

The internet has been a bonanza for Second Amendment supporters. In essence, it has allowed them to bypass the mainstream media to give them the facts needed to show the logic in pro-Second Amendment public policies. Well, the gun-grabbers got tired of it, and they’re starting to make moves to end this channel of information.

A far better solution and one that is employed in every other developed country is to regulate firearm possession and reduce the easy availability of semi-automatic, high capacity, high muzzle energy weapons. Firearm proponents will argue wrongly that self-defense demands the easy access in home and marketplace to these weapons.
 

WI: Gift of guns draws worldwide attention to Hortonville

Hortonville company BenShot – a manufacturer of handcrafted drinking glasses with a bullet embedded in the side – is forthcoming in its support for the Second Amendment.

That is why on Nov. 13, the father-and-son glassmaking company blasted out a press release to news media announcing its 16 full-time employees and several part-timers are getting a free gun for Christmas.

Within a day, news outlets worldwide – from Buzzfeed and Breitbart in the U.S., to London’s Daily Mail and Russia’s RT internationally – reported on the 3-year-old Hortonville business’s controversial act.
 

Broad gun-control restrictions are not the answer

The facts tell us that most commonly proposed gun-control measures are already ineffective at preventing mass public shootings in states where they are currently implemented, and that they will continue to be ineffective at preventing future tragedies.

Although some gun-control advocates claim there have been more than 300 “mass shootings” this year, that number is a product of using deceptive and largely meaningless definitions that include incidents far removed from the context commonly associated with the term. Since Jan. 1, 2018, there have been 11 mass public shootings in which three or more people other than the shooter were killed, parameters derived from Congress’s definitions of “mass shooting” and “mass killing.”

On the same day that the National Rifle Association and Second Amendment Foundation announced they would be challenging Washington state gun measure I-1639 in a federal court, U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, NRA president and former host of Fox News’ “War Stories with Oliver North,” told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson that he finds the measure not only unconstitutional, but also incredibly confusing.

Washington state’s new voter-approved gun-control measure violates citizens’ Second Amendment right to bear arms, gun-rights advocates including the National Rifle Association asserted in a lawsuit filed Thursday.

The law known as Initiative 1639 was approved by 60 percent of voters in last week’s election. It calls for buyers of semi-automatic rifles to be age 21 or older, pass an enhanced background check and show proof of having taken a firearms training course, Q13 FOX of Seattle reported.
 

Gun Control Groups Eclipse N.R.A. in Election Spending

Amid a numbing succession of mass shootings, gun control groups outspent the National Rifle Association in the midterm election cycle, federal filings and additional reporting indicate, upending the usual order in the partisan battle over gun use.

Two groups that are focused on gun control, Giffords and Everytown for Gun Safety, spent at least $37 million at the state and federal level in the midterms, compared with at least $20 million by the N.R.A. The figures are incomplete, because some of the spending done by such groups is not required to be disclosed, but all sides agreed that the N.R.A. was outspent, stemming a trend of financial dominance for the N.R.A. going back years.

The Democrats in Congress have hurried to introduce restrictive anti-Second Amendment legislation. Progressivism detests the concept of the Second Amendment in its bones.

Congressman Pallone, a Democrat from New Jersey, has introduced H.R. 7115. The bill outlaws the private manufacture of guns by requiring a serial number be applied for, and received, before manufacture. Thus, all legal private making of guns would be recorded by the government,. The manufacture would no longer be private. The purpose is to make all legal guns fall under federal control.

Add Thousand Oaks and Tree of Life Synagogue to the more than 300 mass shooting tragedies in America thus far in 2018. Also, add thousands of more members to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America as the nation’s shooting horrors multiply.

From an initial chapter of Moms Demand Action in Webster Groves, the movement to end gun violence has grown to 18 chapters in Missouri. And members vow that they will continue to grow their groups until the gun mayhem stops growing.

When the meeting discussion focused on state laws, Councilmen Eddie Smotherman questioned why limits should be placed on gun owners other than at places involving children and judicial procedures.

Smotherman said it should be OK for people to take guns where they want as long as they are a law-abiding citizen and take care of that gun.

"If there's a bad guy with a gun," Smotherman said, "I hope there’s a good guy with a gun" to stop the threat.
