Silly Carry Permit Requirements

Carry permits do not have to be expensive and complex. The New Hampshire permit has been fairly easy to obtain for many years, if you already had a permit from your state of residence.

During the last few months I have renewed a couple of carry permits. It is not intensely difficult, but when you have better things to do, it can be irritating.

The Democrat’s Fake News Lap Dog.

The Democrat’s new best friend Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook seems to favor liberal bias mainstream media news over conservative news [once more].

The defense and prosecution rested their cases Wednesday after testimony from a forensic pathologist revealed that alleged church shooter Dylann Roof shot each of his nine victims at least five times.

Roof, a self proclaimed white supremacist, laughed in a taped confession, telling FBI investigators “our people are superior,” referring to white people, and telling them he “researched black churches” before going to the bible study in the basement of Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17, 2015. The 22-year-old faces 33 federal charges related to the massacre.

Now that their candidate has officially lost the national election in a brutal rebuff of her message and her character, gun control groups are left scrambling to repackage their demand for Second Amendment infringements and planning to launch their re-branded assault directly into individual states.
 

CA: Court OKs waiting period for existing California gun owners

California's policy of withholding weapons for 10 days from buyers who previously purchased a gun and clear a background check before the state's waiting period is a reasonable safety precaution that does not violate the Second Amendment, a federal appeals court said Wednesday.

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower-court decision that found the law was unconstitutional when applied to existing gun owners and people with concealed-weapons permits who pass the checks before the 10-day waiting period.
 

It’s BS That Marijuana Users Don’t Have The Right To Bear Arms

According to a recent court ruling, ATF’s ban on the sale of guns to medical marijuana card holders does not violate the Second Amendment.

On Nov. 14, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives modified Form 4473 — a piece of government paperwork required of anyone wishing to exercise his or her right to bear arms under the Second Amendment. One of the little tweaks involved a clarification of question 11e, the one that reads, “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug or any other controlled substance?”
 

WA: The last thing we need is guns at sporting events

Some people will do anything to get their names in the news.

Even if comes at the expense of the public’s safety.

Three Washington legislators are pushing a bill that would force arenas and stadiums to allow fans to bring in weapons if they have concealed carry permits. Because adding guns to a highly charged atmosphere where alcohol already offsets common sense far too often seems like a great idea.

“What I’ve been trying to do is foster bipartisan support for common sense solutions to gun violence,” said Laurie Jinkins, the Tacoma area representative who chairs the Washington House Judiciary Committee.

“This seems to be the antithesis for that.”
 

FL: Keep guns off college campuses

College campuses are no places for guns. State university presidents, faculty members and chiefs of police tend to agree, as do the vast majority of Floridians.

Yet campus-carry proponents are again trying to force the issue, despite such legislation being defeated in the past two sessions. One bill introduced for the upcoming session would allow guns to be openly carried on college and university campuses as well as airport passenger terminals, K-12 schools, legislative meetings and local government meetings.

“Media Matters has been writing hit pieces on me for as long as I can remember,” Noir told “NRATV Live” host Grant Stinchfield on Tuesday, December 13. “The irony behind it is it’s always angled in the way of race.”

New York pistol permit holders who acquired their permit prior to 2013 are now required to re-certify, but the state has not set up a website through which re-certification can begin.

The re-certification requirement is part of the body of gun controls contained in the SAFE Act, which Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) signed into law on January 16, 2013, in reaction to the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary.

In one month South Carolina lawmakers will be returning to the State House for the 2017 legislative session.

A push that failed this past year is back on the agenda again for next year: tighter gun control laws. The Senate and House have submitted its first set of pre-filed bills this week.

The bill aims to extend the background check waiting period from three days to 28 days while a separate bill wants to make it illegal to purchase a firearm until that background check is complete.

“Even though many of the same notorious guns allowed in the U.S. are available in Canada, it takes a lot longer to buy your first gun,” says the host as she goes down the rabbit hole to get her gun license.

In Canada you need a Possession and Acquisition or PAL license to purchase or own a gun. Vice News sent reporter Manisha Krishnan on a seven-week trek to get hers.

We warn you. The images and themes you are about to see in the above video may jar you. They are disturbing to a red blooded pro-Second Amendment gun owner on this side of the U.S/Canadian border.

Donald Trump plans to name his Supreme Court nominee very quickly — around the time he’s sworn-in as the 45th president, his incoming chief of staff said Wednesday.

“That’s going to be something that we’re going to start after the New Year, and certainly by the time we get to inauguration, either shortly before or shortly thereafter,” Reince Priebus told Hugh Hewitt’s radio show.

Castile, who was black, was killed on July 6 after being pulled over in Falcon Heights, Minn. The aftermath of the shooting was captured in a Facebook Live video by Castile’s girlfriend, who was in the car along with her young daughter. Castile, 32, was shot by Yanez after telling him that he was armed and licensed to carry a weapon.

Last month, prosecutors said that Yanez acted unreasonably and was not justified in his use of deadly force, but he was only charged with manslaughter.

The Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee officially stepped out of the bear spray market on Tuesday, taking a neutral stance regarding competing companies’ claims of which brand best repels a charging grizzly.

In particular, the IGBC dropped its “six-second” recommendation for how long a can of bear spray should spray. UDAP, a bear spray maker based in Butte, had filed legal action claiming the interagency group had no grounds to say one spray duration was better than another.

“Charm City” chalked up it’s 300th and 301st homicides of 2016 Tuesday night less than an hour apart. Maryland’s policy of severely restricting the natural right of citizens to arm themselves for self defense and Baltimore’s “room to burn” philosophy towards violent crime is working out really well, don’t you think?

Contrary to a recent report that gun purchases are increasing in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, for southeast Michigan that is not the case with some women, a majority of them from Detroit, who are taking firearm classes these days.

And their embrace of guns is not for hunting either.

Instead the need for self-defense is the main driver behind the women who have been showing up at the Southfield and Eastpoint locations of Action Impact Firearms and Training Center, a leading gun dealership in the region.

I decided to go to the gun range because I knew that I could only begin to understand the pro-gun community by first shooting a gun myself. Why do so many in Connecticut passionately defend their right to open-carry? Is shooting a gun inherently a political experience?

I pay for the rental and the service charge and sign a few papers. And just five minutes after I open the front door, I am holding a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle.

The Ninth Circuit on Wednesday ruled that California law requiring people already in the state’s Automated Firearms System database wait 10 days to take possession after legally buying another gun is constitutional after all, reversing a trial judge.

Ninth Circuit Judge Mary Schroeder wrote for the panel: “(W)e agree with the State that the 10-day waiting period is a reasonable safety precaution for all purchasers of firearms and need not be suspended once a purchaser has been approved.”

The 85th Legislative Session is just weeks away from beginning and when it comes to gun related bills so far 37 have been filed with most focusing on gun safety.

One of the big bills that passed during the last legislative session concerned concealed carry on college campuses. This year, State Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas, has proposed two pieces of legislation that would allow universities to opt out of campus carry just like private universities. The second bill says cities with more than 750,000 people can pass an ordinance prohibiting open carry.

The Kansas Board of Regents on Wednesday approved policies for how the state's six public universities will implement a state law allowing people to carry concealed guns into campus buildings starting July 1.

The regents, with little discussion, approved the plans that spell out university policies on the safe storage and handling of handguns. Stun guns to be used for self-defense also will be allowed, but Tasers — which fire projectiles and are generally more powerful than generic stun guns — won't be.

A man sitting on his front porch holding what appears to be a rifle, right across the street from an elementary school. It’s a sight that has parents in Wichita concerned.

The Wichita School District said it’s aware of the situation but adds, the man isn’t doing anything illegal. Now, that man is saying this is all just a misunderstanding.
