What Do You Do After You Have Your Concealed Carry Permit?

What is morally required of you to be a responsible gun owner now that you have your permit?

There are additional skills you should develop that go beyond safe handling of a firearm. I’m not saying this as some high speed ninja-competitor, but rather as an old, slow, self-defense dinosaur. Here are a few of the skills you need, now that you carry concealed.

None of these skills take great athletic strength or speed. All of them require practice. One of the best things about training is meeting other responsible firearms owners who take training and practice.

Don’t you want to be one of them?

Applying the Second Amendment to knives as arms and the groundbreaking Heller U.S. Supreme Court decision, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals reversed a lower court decision that it was illegal for someone to possess a switchblade (automatic) knife in their home.
 

CA: Gun violence and mental health: Don’t just blame the NRA

Mental health concerns have shaped federal gun policies for decades, beginning in 1968 with efforts to forbid the sale of guns to those with diagnosed mental illness, and reaffirmed with the Brady Act in 1993. Yet research shows those with serious mental illness are rarely violent — only about 4 percent — and psychiatrists have little ability to predict the destructive actions of those few who are. “It would be like looking for a needle in a haystack,” Dr. Renee Binder, the president of the American Psychiatric Association, told the audience at a panel discussion on gun violence convened this month in San Francisco by the Psychiatric Foundation of Northern California.
 

FL: Unanimous Pinellas Commission to Legislature: Shoot down open carry bill

Add Pinellas County's seven county commissioners to the list of opponents of a bill that would allow Florida's concealed weapons permit holders to openly carry their handguns.

A unanimous commission -- four Democrats and three Republicans -- voted this week to draft a resolution noting their opposition to send to the state Legislature.

Ken Welch, a St. Petersburg Democrat, proposed the resolution against the "dangerous" bill, HB 163. He noted that there about 50,000 carry concealed carry permit holders in Pinellas. (The actual number as of Oct. 31 was 56,281, according to the Florida Department of Revenue). If even a fraction of those opt to openly carry, that's still lot of guns in the open, Welch said.
 

CA: Gavin Newsom Betting His Political Future On Gun Control

Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom’s (D) is betting his political future on gun control, especially his future plans to succeed Jerry Brown (D) as Governor of California.

According to KQED News, Newsom’s three-tiered platform is gun control, legalization of marijuana, and an increase in the minimum wage in California. He admits that these are not the three things that are most important to Californians. Rather, they are the three things through which he can most clearly demonstrate his liberal Democrat credentials.

I think we scare the elites. Today, average folks like us can get our news from a thousand different sources. Unfiltered by the mainstream media, we witness the growing corruption between government and crony businessmen. We see the growing gap between what the mainstream news tells us and what we see with our own eyes. We continue to live our own lives despite that government collusion and media corruption. We can’t be bought. For the most part, we can’t be pushed around. Our independence frightens the dishonest political and business elites. They want us disarmed. They want us disarmed for their benefit, not for ours.

Included in the bill were some very important pro-gun provisions that represent the culmination of long-term efforts by your NRA to advance Second Amendment right at the federal level.

What might have happened if a few of the 1,500 concert attendees in Paris' Bataclan theater had guns? The terrorists had time to kill, reload and kill again. The police unit didn't come for more than a half hour. If a few people in the theater were armed, might they have killed the killers?

We'll never know.

It is impossible to read about these gun thefts and not suspect that a number of cops and agents have forgotten their training. When civilians fail to store their guns safely and children get a hold of a loaded weapon and shoot someone, gun owners in a number of states including California may face prosecution. Is it too much to expect cops and federal agents be more careful with their guns than clueless gun enthusiasts?

CAIR Florida, which is the Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida, announced the lawsuit against the Florida Gun Supply in July. The organization said the Muslim-free zone amounted to religious discrimination, violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Two dozen U.S. senators have called on President Barack Obama to issue an executive order to reduce gun violence.

In a letter addressed to Obama, 24 senators urged the president "to investigate and pursue all possible options under his executive authority" to help ease gun violence.

In the letter, heavily supported and signed by Democrats, the senators said they want Obama to eliminate a loophole that allows people without a federal license to sell guns at gun shows, across the Internet and "elsewhere," other places that currently do not require a background check.

Welcome to #GunFail, blogger David Waldman's two-year (and counting) Twitter project documenting daily unintentional shootings among legal gun owners in America. While the circumstances are at times comical – people shooting themselves with guns in their pockets, for example – Waldman's point is serious: he aims to refute pro-gun arguments about how guns are safe, how most owners are responsible and how only bad guys should fear them.

In the wake of recent terrorist attacks in Paris, Detroit police union officials are expressing their opposition to an NFL policy that prohibits off-duty cops from bringing firearms into stadiums, saying the rule puts lives in danger.

“This policy is ill-advised and should be rescinded,” said a draft of a letter, penned by leaders of the city’s three police unions: The Detroit Police Officers Association, Lieutenants and Sergeants Association and the Command Officers Association.

Ed.: They only want the ban on them being armed rescinded, not the ban on the rest of us.

Several years ago, just before the opening of deer season, I wrote a column inspired by a pair of local women who had concerns for their safety during deer season.

The sporadic gunfire made them wary of walking outdoors during the firearms season.

I have been asked a few times to repeat the gist of that column, so here is gist the gist.

One woman expressed dismay that people, on very rare occasions, get hit by stray bullets.
 

FBI Predicts Black Friday Gun Sales Will Break Record

Breitbart News previously reported that Black Friday sales–as estimated based on background checks–hovered around 98,000 in 2008 and 2009 then took off in 2010. In 2011 Black Friday background checks totaled 129,166. They rose to 154,873 in 2012, before falling back back to 144,758 in 2013 after Senator Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) gun control bill was defeated.

But in 2014 the number of Black Friday background checks came in at a record setting 175,000, and the FBI predicts Black Friday 2015 will surpass that.

According to The Trace, FBI spokesman Stephen Fischer believes Black Friday 2015 will see “190,000 background checks.” This is “slightly more than two background checks every second” during a 24-hour period.

A woman was injured and sent to the hospital after police say her son accidentally fired a gun in a Target parking lot. Now, the department has ruled the shooting accidental. But they're reminding people to be safe and secure with guns.

Behind the glass, there are different colors, different sizes and different styles. But, they all share the same function.

"Everybody's wanting their personal protection because they're realizing that certain people can't get there to protect them and it's better to be able to protect yourself than wait on someone else," Bucks & Jakes gun salesman Wade Kimbrell.

Perhaps it was Vladimir Putin’s shameless boldness while making Barack Obama, John Kerry, Ash Carter, et al., look like amateurs with their inept bungling of the Syrian quagmire — that piqued the president’s temper. After all, being made a laughingstock by a Russian head of state who bamboozled the entire administration and the defense department wouldn’t sit well with egoists loathe to admit to being caught with their pants down, so to speak.

But that doesn’t excuse the president’s tactless apoplectic reaction to the tragedy in Oregon — rushing to politicize a horrifically violent event (from which the bodies had yet to be removed).
