Now We Know There are Armed Good Guys on Our Streets

Politicians and the news media told us that guns are frighteningly dangerous, and that we’d be safer if more honest citizens were disarmed. We’re tempted to believe them if that is all we know. Now, we have data that challenges their story.

Now we know that concealed carry and armed defense are common. One out of a dozen of us are armed in public every day.

That changes everything.

Former NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch has written a fun yet compelling children's book about the right to keep and bear arms, and Army veteran Graham Allen has written a book about the value of always telling the truth.

Brave Books is releasing these two new books just in time for Christmas, and it has a special promotion between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

"With Paws off My Cannon, we’re teaching the next generation to value the right to bear arms," Loesch told FOX Business. She said the book is "not just a platform for a political argument. It represents the need for self-defense in a fun way that kids will enjoy."

Days after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of murder for defending himself against armed assailants, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) announced on his “Firebrand” podcast that he would be filing a “National Stand Your Ground” measure in the U.S. Congress.

“You have the right to defend your life from an attacker and that shouldn’t change whether you’re at home, at a friend’s home, or on a stroll. It shouldn’t change whether you’re in Florida or California, or Virginia said, Rep. Gaetz.

Gaetz said that the anti-gun lobby, or “gun-hating Left” the Rittenhouse case and further their anti-gun agenda.
 

Don’t shield U.S. gun makers from liability for Mexico’s gun violence

Earlier this year, the Mexican government filed a lawsuit against several U.S. gun companies, accusing them of knowingly flooding the country with illicit firearms, which have brought horrific levels of bloodshed.

In a brief filed on Monday, the gun companies asked a federal judge in Boston to dismiss the lawsuit. The companies — Smith & Wesson, Glock, Ruger & Co and others — postured as the good guys, invoking stereotypes of Mexico as a lawless place. “At bottom, this case implicates a clash of national values,” their attorneys wrote. They characterized Mexico’s lawsuit as a threat to “America’s constitutional freedoms.”
 

OK: Lawmaker wants 'self-defenders' to be able to sue

An Oklahoma state senator is filing legislation for the upcoming session that would require the state to reimburse people charged with murder and found not guilty, if it was determined the accused was acting in self-defense.

The bill, Kyle's Law, comes after Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges in a case wherein he fatally shot two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.

...

"Kyle Rittenhouse should never have been charged," said State Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, who filed the measure. "The video evidence from early on showed it was lawful self-defense. It is our duty to protect the rights of the people we represent, and the right to self-defense is paramount."
 

Kwame Brown defends Kyle Rittenhouse: “It looked like self-defense”

“That — to me, in my opinion — looked like self-defense. The courts found it as self-defense. The only bad thing is that he had to sit in jail for so long because they made something political that shouldn’t have been political. If you’re going to give the boy the gun charge, give him the damn gun charge, or let the boy out…Instead of that, we want to tie it in to something black. We want to tie it in to something bigger so we can have people come out and march and get checks off a little teenager’s back, and that, to me, is corny. Everything ain’t political, OK?…A bunch of people are getting paid to push this racist sh*t. That’s all it is.”
 

Universities Try to Force a Consensus About Kyle Rittenhouse

At universities, the recent acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse should be an opportunity to study a divisive case that sparked complex debates about issues as varied as self-defense laws, guns, race, riots, the rights of defendants, prosecutorial missteps, media bias, and more. If administrators were doing their jobs, faculty and students would freely air a wide variety of viewpoints and have opportunities to better understand one another’s diverse perspectives. Instead, many administrators are preemptively imposing their preferred narratives.

The first point is that this was about one young man citing self-defense as justification for killing two people and wounding another. Period. His acquittal should neither be celebrated as a great victory for the Second Amendment nor used as a rallying cry to recruit Black Lives Matter troops. It was a reflection of the jury’s acceptance, after considering the facts presented to it, of Rittenhouse’s claim that he was in fear for his life when he fired his rifle.

If you are a law-abiding citizen, this should be of interest to you, since your most likely use of deadly force will be to defend yourself or your property or to protect someone else. You might want to know the specifics of stand-your-ground and castle doctrine laws.

According to a press release from Chief Bobby Martin, through further investigation, it has been determined the shooting incident Sunday at 1515 Georgia Ave., Apartments, A2, was actually self-defense, and all charges against Brenda Walker have been dismissed.

This information was received from the victim, Candace Davis, who admitted to trying to choke Walker when the shots were fired striking Davis.

Investigator J. Shelburne reached out to the Halifax County District Attorney’s Office in regard to the new information provided and they agreed it was in self-defense and all charges would be dropped.

...I am going to assume that Alan Dershowitz and Professor Jonathan Turley both being left wing liberals have a tighter grip on the law and our Constitution than Robert Minch. They therefore follow the Constitution as it is written not as other liberals interpret it.

Alan Dershowitz is an American lawyer known for his work in U.S. constitutional law and American criminal law.

Professor Jonathan Turley is a nationally recognized legal scholar who has written extensively in areas ranging from constitutional law to legal theory to tort law.

Both Dershowitz and Turley support the verdict and Rittenhouse’s Constitutional right to self-defense.
 

FL: Florida Agriculture Commissioner Abusing Her Position to Suspend 2A Rights

Fried is the only Democrat to hold statewide office in the Gunshine State, where last week Republican voters finally outnumbered registered Democrats. She is also the only state official known to possess both a CWFL and a Florida Medical Marijuana Card, regardless of the federal legal problems this creates when she purchases a firearm.

Now, Fried is using access to confidential gun-owner data that her position offers, in her campaign for governor against incumbent Gov. Ron DeSantis, and Fried has shrugged off scrutiny about her actions as well as attempts to gain clarity and accountability.

According to Acting Monmouth County Prosector, Lori Linskey, a combined total of nearly 600 firearms (594 to be exact), were collected for destruction as the result of two separate gun buybacks hosted by the Prosecutor’s Office and partner agencies, since last month.

The most recent buyback was held in Freehold on November 20, at the Bethel AME Church, and collected a total of 234 firearms, including 144 handguns, 67 rifles and shotguns, and two assault weapons. The first gun buyback was held in Asbury Park, at the Second Baptist Church, and brought in 159 handguns, 133 rifles and shotguns, and three assault weapons.
 

NH: Rep. Rogers: Reject Kyle's law. It would make the people of New Hampshire less safe.

“Kyle’s Law” would require the jury instruction on self-defense include a special question to the jury — "if you the jury are acquitting this defendant on the grounds of self-defense, do you also find that the prosecution failed to disprove self-defense by a majority of the evidence?” If the jury answers this in the positive the defendant is entitled to compensation not only from the state, but also from the prosecutor personally. Additionally, the charging police officer will be held accountable as well.

This is wrong for New Hampshire, and throws the idea of law and order on its head. Here are reasons why “Kyle’s Law” should be rejected:

Estancia’s four-person Board of Trustees split 2-2 on the “legally armed” rule. Dial broke the tie with his affirmative vote.

The rule reads: “In order to attend an Estancia Town Council meeting, one must be legally Armed. By entering this meeting, you acknowledge that you are prepared to defend yourself and beliefs with what you believe is necessary to do so. (This definition is at the discretion of the Executive Branch.)

“Any and all Religious, Medical or Ethical exceptions will be honored without question.”

By now, loyal Ammoland readers have heard of the tragic incident involving Halyna Hutchins and Alec Baldwin on a New Mexico movie set. To put it bluntly, it was an accident that should not have happened. The ongoing investigation will determine the facts, and what, if any, charges will be appropriate.

Any loyal Ammoland reader knows the basic rules of firearms safety from the National Rifle Association:

ALWAYS Keep The Gun Pointed In A Safe Direction
ALWAYS Keep Your Finger Off The Trigger Until Ready To Shoot
ALWAYS Keep The Gun Unloaded Until Ready To Use
 

B&T TP9 Optimized With A3 Tactical

The difference between a rule and a maxim is that while the prior makes no room for allowances, the latter generally applies, with exceptions. One such example of a maxim when it comes to firearms is that if it doesn't apply to you, it wasn't created with you in mind. The B&T TP9 can sometimes baffle users, as it seems to exist between the categories of a handgun and a pistol-caliber carbine. The base firearm is larger than a pistol, loads the magazine through the grip, and has features that beg you to tempt a visit from the BATFE. At the same time, it doesn't have the barrel length or AR-15-esque controls of the B&T APC9.
 

AZ: Arizona has no law to stop intimidating, armed protesters. That must change

Imagine armed protesters and militias “patrolling” a crowd, intimidating bystanders and chanting about conspiracy theories about vaccines and false claims of voter fraud in the last election.

It wasn’t long ago that we would have thought this implausible, yet this describes what happened in September, when extremists gathered at the state Capitol for an event dubbed the “Liberty Revolution.”

The mix of misinformation, extremism and guns has sadly become common across the country. What’s worse: in Arizona, thanks to the state’s lax gun laws, none of this conduct is regulated or prohibited.

We must not accept armed protests as the new normal.
 

Democrats own guns too

Some Republican politicians are still spreading the lie that Democrats want to take away their guns.

Even with a Democratic president and a majority of Democrats in Congress, they never tried to take away the right of citizens to own a firearm. After President Barack Obama left office, there was a meme that went around. It showed the inside of a gigantic warehouse with the caption, “This is where the guns are stored that Obama took away.” The warehouse is empty.
