The merger between Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will help the mayors' group mask the bad deeds of some of its members, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.

"Michael Bloomberg is essentially getting Moms to clean his organization's dirty laundry and present a more wholesome image to the American people, whom they hope to lull into surrendering their firearms rights," said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb.

The University of Wyoming’s weapons policy is intended to strike a balance between general safety concerns and the ability of students and staff to defend themselves if the need arises, said UW Police Department Chief Mike Samp.

About the only self-defense devices allowed on campus are mace or pepper spray containers no larger than one ounce. Samp said he knew of no cases in recent memory in which those had been used for self-defense at UW.

A man was heading to his Dekalb County, Ga. home for lunch when a phone call alerted him to a break-in at his property.

When the man arrived home, he went to a back door where he spotted three burglars; prompting him to call 911. While making the call, the three criminals started running towards the homeowner.

The homeowner responded by drawing a gun and firing at the burglars, striking one and causing the other two to flee.
 

Can you carry a gun in a commercial vehicle?

The answers to these questions are hardly simple. There are federal regulations to consider. If you cross state lines, you’ll be dealing with at least two sets of state regulations. Determining which federal agency has jurisdiction over commercial vehicles will only complicate things more. In the end, it may well be up to the company you work for. And all of this may depend on your concealed carry permit regulations.

One thing is clear. At least we at Guns.com see it clearly. A commercial truck driver has the same right to self defense as anyone else. It should be legal. It should be encouraged.

As 2013 comes to a close, New York state is looking back on nearly a year full of stricter gun laws.

Many still question the effectiveness of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act which was signed into law on Jan. 15, and imposed a variety of restrictions including a reduction of magazine capacity and registration of newly defined assault weapons.

Ways to protect and defend those rights was the center of discussion for Vitter, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and State Representative Jeff Thompson, R-Bossier City, during a live telephone town hall meeting Wednesday night.

With every new report of a madman opening fire on innocent people, President Obama takes advantage of the tragedy to redouble his efforts to disarm the civilian population of the United States.

One of his chief weapons in the war against the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms that it protects is the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The New American has covered the creation of the ATT since the time of its proposal.

A group called “Arkansan Pastors for Gun Sense” is partnering with law enforcement agencies around the state to reach out to families of victims of gun violence by delivering toys and Christmas hams tomorrow Saturday. In addition to supporting victims, the group has been pushing for legislation to strengthen background checks and other gun trafficking laws.

Pastor Jarvis Smith of Second Baptist Church in Helena is a part of the group. He says gun violence often occurs disproportionately in African-American communities. And Smith says, the violence can significantly weaken an area’s economic prospects as businesses and wealthier residents decide to move away.

It was a battle over the Second Amendment. Citizens in Exeter angered by the Town Council's decision to request that the gun permits be issued by the Attorney General's office decided to take action. They collected over a thousand signatures calling for the recall of four of the town council members. In the end they lost the recall effort however they showed Rhode Islanders that they can take political action if they are unhappy with their elected officials.

And, perhaps most dispiriting, the authors argue that pretty much every policy proposal intended to reduce mass shootings has been worthless. Increased funding for and access to mental health treatment? A well-meaning idea, but likely ineffective in preventing mass murder, given that, "with their tendency to externalize blame and consider themselves as victims of mistreatment, mass murderers see the problem to reside in others, not themselves," and thus would likely avoid all opportunities to receive psychiatric help.
 

Federal judge: Utah’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional

The federal judge in the Utah court went a step beyond that, finding not just an equal protection violation but a violation of due process too. Everyone has a right to marry under the Constitution, he says, and no, granting a gay man the right to marry a woman for whom he feels nothing romantically isn’t enough. What good is having a right that’s deliberately circumscribed in a way to leave you with no desire to exercise it? It’s like telling gun owners they have the right to bear arms so long as those guns aren’t capable of firing live ammunition.

Ed.: Isn't outlawing ammo on the antis' wishlist?

A gun rights group has filed its first lawsuit against one of the Illinois communities that rushed to pass an assault weapons ban before a state law allowed people to carry concealed weapons in public, and the group strongly hinted Friday that the lawsuit will not be its last.

"I am not at liberty to talk about (other possible lawsuits), but let's just say we're always working," said Richard Pearson, the executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, which joined the lawsuit filed by a Highland Park pediatrician against the well-to-do community north of Chicago. "We are going after them wherever they are."

"It is shameful that the Republican establishment leadership plans to continue ignoring the constitutionally protected rights of law abiding gun owners including the right to defend themselves and their families against criminals" said Harris. "The cold shoulder given to conservative grassroots groups, including TFA, shows a lack of constitutional leadership by those in power and is simply unacceptable."

The Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment for a reason. They knew the government couldn’t protect the people, and it was government control that is the ultimate threat to our freedoms. I admire police officers, many of whom I count as friends. But, late at night, when someone breaks into my home, it’s more than likely I’ll be alone to defend myself. Enough said.

“No guns allowed” will continue to be the policy the next four years for properties owned by the City of Ottawa.

Ottawa city commissioners voted 4-0 Wednesday to apply for a four-year extension to temporarily ward off state legislation enacted July 1 that would allow licensed concealed carry permit holders to bring their firearms into many public buildings across the state. The legislation was passed during the 2013 session and signed into law by Gov. Sam Brownback.

A man who shot and killed his friend Thursday night said that he fired in self-defense during an argument, investigators said Friday.

...

White returned 10 minutes later, armed with a handgun, Hart said.

Witnesses said that White pulled the gun before the shooter fired, he said. White ran out of the house and collapsed in the front yard.

“Based on the claim of self-defense by the suspect, the statements of witnesses at the scene, and the evidence located at the scene, the suspect has not been charged with anything at this time and his name is not being released,” Hart said.
 

Canada: Ruling goes beyond sex work: The state cannot outlaw self-defense

Today, as the Court observed, the issue was not whether the state should more actively step in to protect prostitutes; only whether it was entitled to stop prostitutes from taking common-sense steps to defend themselves. It emphatically said no.

The decision reflects common intuitions about the limits of the law’s authority over us. Imagine the public’s reaction if Parliament decided to abolish the defense of self-defense. A person who was attacked would be forced to choose between breaking the law and being injured or killed. The law, many think, cannot force such a dilemma upon us. At the very least, the state must have a good reason for doing so.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
In our inner cities, where firearms are outlawed, only outlaws are armed. When our "philosopher kings" sit back and do nothing, this is the tyranny and terror of "gun control." —CHARLTON HESTON
