One of Ohio's most powerful gun rights organizations says Second Amendment supporters should demand answers about the shooting death of a Black man in Columbus.

Franklin County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Meade shot and killed 23-year-old Casey Goodson Jr. on Dec. 4, claiming he was waving a handgun. Goodson's family says he was holding a bag of sandwiches and unlocking the door of his home. Law enforcement says Meade never mistook a sandwich for a gun.

But an increasing number of people are buying firearms for the first time. And there are millions of people who buy firearms regularly and enjoy them--for many different reasons.

What are the factors that drive people to buy their first gun?

In 2020, a growing number of Oregonians are buying guns and applying for permits to carry them outside of their homes. Gun advocates said that shows people are taking advantage of the second amendment. However, others worry that more people on the streets with guns may make people more unsafe.

Whatever the reason, tens of thousands of more Oregonians are buying guns this year compared to last. The state police have done over 400,000 background checks in 2020.

Rep.-elect Lauren Boebert, a gun-rights enthusiast, slammed an effort by House Democrats to ban lawmakers from carrying guns at the Capitol, pledging to fight back against any attempt to restrict her Second Amendment rights.

"The Democrats are always up for stripping away our Constitutional rights and feel threatened when we simply want to exercise those rights," Boebert told Fox News Wednesday. "I carry a firearm to protect myself and want to exercise my right to do so in one of the most dangerous cities in America. They want to take that right away from me. I look forward to helping make sure they can't."

In the final moments of the legislative year, Ohio lawmakers could dramatically expand where residents can fire a gun in self-defense without retreating first.

Often called "stand your ground" laws, the proposed changes would eliminate the duty to retreat before using force in self-defense, defense of another person or defense of certain property.

If you’re looking for self-defense but don’t want to carry a firearm, a taser is probably your best choice. You don’t need to get up close and personal like you do with a stun gun, and unlike pepper spray, there’s no risk of blowback or wind dispersal.

A Kentucky grand jury has decided not to indict a woman on wanton endangerment charges after she was accused of pointing a gun at a motorist in September

The Jefferson County grand jury found there was not enough evidence to invalidate 34-year-old Robin Ash's claim of self-defense, according to the county prosecutor's office.

Ash was participating in the protests surrounding Breonna Taylor — the Black woman killed by police officers in her home in March — when both Ash and the motorist pointed guns at each other, according to Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression co-chair Tyra Walker.Walker witnessed the encounter after a protest at Attorney General Daniel Cameron's office.

News Media Fears Ammon Bundy May be Right

One latest example comes out of a Nampa based newspaper. You can click on a link here. Political activist Ammon Bundy is recommending people prepare for rough times ahead. He’s called a conservative activist by the writers of the story. I’m not sure all of these labels are accurate. He was more than willing to meet members of Black Lives Matter. He was vilified by many old allies on the right. Yet, he explained he wanted to know why they were taking to the streets. It’s a fair question. People who believe they’re aggrieved could solve at least some issues by having a dialogue. Or it’s at least worth a try.

As more and more people buy handguns for self-defense, revolvers have experienced a surge in popularity. And that has led to a lot of talk about a “revolver resurgence,” which is kind of amusing to serious revolver fans for whom the wheelgun never went away. While a lot of the surge is due to folks purchasing small, super-light revolvers for concealed carry, sometimes overlooked is how good revolvers—particularly mid- to full-size ones—can be for home defense.

Gun owners could be allowed to fire their weapons in public without the "duty to retreat," if they feel their lives are in danger, under two bills being reviewed by Ohio lawmakers during the final days of the legislative session.
