Are Guns Legal in Your Town, but Not Next Door?

Can you carry at home, but not in the state next door? Denying reciprocity isn’t a matter of state laws lagging behind public practice. The restrictions on firearms owners are not motivated by safety or legal philosophy. These restrictions are motivated by money and political power.

Here is their history, and their future.
 

U.S. can change status quo on guns

You see, Bryant inflicted his horror on the island of Tasmania, off the southern coast of Australia. Those in charge forged a bipartisan deal with state and local governments to enact far-reaching gun laws. Polls showed overwhelming public support for the measures.

The specific strategies aren't the right ones for America. But what makes the Australia model worthy of attention is that it stands in sharp defiance of hopelessness. A conservative-led government's constructive actions contradict those who maintain that the gun problem is unconquerable, that smart laws can't make a difference.

Australia put its National Firearms Agreement into action within two months of Bryant's rampage.

As Barack Obama would cause gun sales to skyrocket after every anti-gun speech for fear of our Second Amendment rights being stripped, now President-elect Donald Trump’s mere vicinity to the Oval Office is causing many in the black community to arm up out out of fear their lives are in danger.

According to NBC News, gun store owners are reporting that gun sales to black and minorities customers have quadrupled since November 8th, and that many black gun groups have reported that twice as many attendees have been showing up at their meetings.

“There are people who disagree with a police department raffling off guns, even though we are not giving guns to the public,” Manning said. “It is a gift card. You would have to go through the same steps that you would go through to go the store to purchase a firearm.”

The three winners will receive gift cards for Fin Feather Fur Outfitters to match the value of each advertised prize plus local sales tax, meaning that winners have the option to purchase items at the store not related to guns or gun accessories.
 

Groundbreaking Study Finds That Taking Guns From Suicidal Owners Saves Lives

Looking at data from the law’s enactment in 1999 to 2013, 762 “risk warrants” were issued and carried out. The researchers followed what happened to the individuals whose guns were confiscated. Nearly one-fifth (142) attempted suicide; though 21 eventually completed suicides, the vast majority (121) survived.

By comparing general population data for gun-involved suicides to these outcomes, the authors of the study argue that for every 10 to 20 firearm removals, one suicide was prevented.

Ed.: In other words, in 90-95% of cases, the courts were wrong, and law-abiding Americans were denied their right to bear arms for no reason.
 

PA: Pennsylvania hunters will be able to use semi-automatic firearms

In a Facebook post Wednesday, the PCG reminded hunters that the new law won't apply right away.

The commission said it had not yet made changes to the list of lawful firearms and ammunitions, meaning that with the exception of some counties that already allow for the use of semi-automatic shotguns, all guns must be manually operated.

The reminder is timely: The state's rifle season for deer opens Monday, Nov. 28.

With the commission’s next quarterly meeting scheduled for January, no changes will be made before April 2017.
 

Mr. Trump's Second Amendment

The Second Amendment’s true purpose is to guarantee Americans the right—and to insure for them the ability to perform the duty—to defend their communities, to the end of securing “a free State” at every level of the federal system throughout this country. Ultimately, the Second Amendment provides for the perpetuation of those “well regulated Militia” which it declares to be “necessary to the security of a free State”. Mere individuals and families—as isolated individuals and families—cannot possibly succeed through individual self-defense in thwarting the kinds of threats most likely to endanger “the security of a free State”.
 

Putting an end to prayer vigils

I do not want to go to another vigil. Sometime soon someone will easily obtain a gun no hunter would ever use. He will open fire in a room full of innocent people.

Clergy will organize a vigil where we read the names of the victims. We will grieve for the families of those who died. We will read scripture. We will pray for an end to gun violence.

We will give anyone paying careful attention the impression that we are not sure that God and God’s people working together can stop or even slow gun violence. The ministers will not offer concrete suggestions as to how we might prevent the next tragedy. The ministers will either be afraid of offending someone or they will not know what to suggest.
 

Behind the Bullet: .45 Colt

1873 was a landmark year for cartridge development, giving us two pivotal designs that remain popular to this day: the .45-70 Government, and the .45 Colt. The Civil War was over, and the westward expansion was booming. Firearms had gone through radical developments in the last couple of decades; the large caliber muzzleloading rifles had given way to the breech-loading metallic centerfire cartridges of smaller diameter, which gave a much faster rate of fire, as well as unprecedented reliability.
 

Stress shooting: Training for ‘time is life’ scenarios

Unfortunately, many people who carry concealed are incapable of operating under battle stress. Those of us who are current or prior military or law enforcement receive some training in how to keep our cool and focus in a time-is-life situation. In comparison, I have been to two CCL courses (one in Texas and one in Arizona) and the shooting portions of both were very simple, very calm, static shoots. Seeing how many people missed under relaxed conditions has highlighted how ill-prepared the average CCL applicant is. In the absence of regulation-mandated stress shoots, it is incumbent upon us to train harder for the worst case scenario.

Terry Roy Levy has been found innocent in his second trial for second-degree murder.

His original guilty verdict was overturned last year.

Levy was charged in the fatal shooting of his daughter’s boyfriend, Terry Green, on Little Tancook Island in 2014.

...

“All I did was protect myself from the second attack of the day,” he said in the appeal.
 

Sale of guns on Black Friday likely to dip with a Donald win, but more women buying guns

#Black Friday has been for decades a shopping extravaganza. This time, as usual, sales are being championed by the big players in the field like Walmart, Amazon, Kohls and others. But the gun stores have recorded a marginal decrease. Why? the general people feel that with Donald having won, guns are not likely to be restricted and so one can buy at leisure. The urgency to own a weapon has gone and with Hillary's defeat, the gun lobby is happy.

Yet these are as nothing compared to the gun department at a Cabela’s and to the teak-and-leather-armchair comfort of the stores’ gun libraries. Here, you may purchase sufficient firepower to bring down a large stag or moose or grizzly bear, or else to wipe out a village, or a school, or the audience at a cinema, or the congregation in a church. A quick swipe of a credit card; then a swift pull of the trigger: everything in the gun world is so dismayingly quick.

The only snag is the pesky little matter of regulation.

The U.S. Secret Service has lost thousands of agency computers, radios, cell phones, weapons, credentials and vehicles since Islamic terrorists executed the worst attack in U.S. history, records obtained by Judicial Watch show. The equipment was reported lost or stolen by the Secret Service, which claims to be one of the most elite law enforcement organizations in the world with responsibilities that include protecting, not only the president but also national and visiting foreign leaders as well as conducting criminal investigations.

Mike Wonsala, a Mount Airy resident who hopes to open a business selling firearms out of his home, is taking steps to answer questions and quell fears residents might have about his business.

Fifteen months ago, Wonsala applied to the town for a special exception to restore and sell antique firearms out of his home. He will host a question-and-answer session at the Mount Airy library on Dec. 1 to go over the basis of his business. Wonsala also has operated a similar business out of his home in both New Jersey and North Carolina.

Twenty-three years ago today, the U.S. Senate passed the Brady Bill, which required a five day waiting period for the sale of handguns.

The law was inspired by the 1981 shooting of former President Ronald Reagan and the crippling injury of his press secretary, James Brady, who was left paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair by the incident.
 

US Marine Corps experimenting with silencing every single gun in an infantry battalion

In a series of experiments this year, units from 2nd Marine Division will be silencing every element of an infantry battalion — from M4 rifles to .50 caliber machine guns.

The commanding general of 2nd Marine Division, Maj. Gen. John Love, described these plans during a speech to Marines at the Marine Corps Association Ground Dinner this month near Washington, D.C.

The proof-of-concept tests, he said, included Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, which began an Integrated Training Exercise pre-deployment last month at Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms.

I’ve dealt with hundreds of companies in the fishing, hunting and shooting industries since becoming a full-time outdoor writer in 2005. My favorite of all of them is Henry Repeating Arms of Bayonne, New Jersey.

I’ve had a fascination with Henry lever-guns since 1985, when I saw the movie “Silverado” for the first time. Mal Johnson (played by Danny Glover) asking those bad guys “Do you know what a Henry rifle can do in the hands of someone who knows how to use it?” gave me goosebumps back then, and it still does today.

A man shot two would-be robbers early Thursday an ATM in Homewood, according to Pittsburgh police.

The 42-year-old man told police he was using an ATM on North Homewood Avenue shortly after 1 a.m., when two masked 16-year-olds with guns approached him and tried to rob him.

Police said he pulled out his own gun and shot one of the would-be robbers in the leg and the other in the stomach.

The man, who was not injured, had a license to carry the firearm.
 

NC: Family of Dead Felon Really Angry He Died After Shooting At Cops, Demands Change

Convicted drug trafficker Frank “Scooterbug” Clark was shot and killed by Durham Police earlier this week after he reached for a gun in his waistband after being confronted by cops, and his family and allies are really mad that violent felons aren’t treated with more respect by officers who know they are violent, woman-abusing drug dealers.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
