A man accused of robbing a Houston, Texas Dollar General and crashing his car into a METRO bus has died, according to authorities.

A store manager had a gun and shot at the suspect, hitting him once or twice, the sheriff said. The man then fled the location, got back into his vehicle and drove about a block away to an intersection.

Submitter's note: This is the only thing these miscreants understand. Even if caught they get out of jail so fast that it is not a deterrent.

The banned weapons “are unreasonably dangerous for ordinary purposes of self-defense due to their extreme lethality and high potential for collateral harm,” Chief Judge Dennis Saylor wrote in an order denying the gun rights group’s request to halt enforcement of the law.

The US Supreme Court held last year in New York State Rifles & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen that state governments must prove a regulation would have been consistent with the nation’s historical regulation of firearms.

U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney for the Central District of California ruled that the law violated the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which protects the right to keep and bear arms.

The law would "unconstitutionally deprive" concealed carry permit holders of "their constitutional right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense," he said, adding that the law "is sweeping, repugnant to the Second Amendment, and openly defiant of the Supreme Court."

"I don't know what it is about this Christmas, as I've said, it just feels like I haven't felt Christmas and my husband says the same," she said.

The 25-year-old was killed while inside the Olive Garden restaurant on Outer Loop in 2019.

Investigators say Jose was trying to stop a fight after Briggs pushed a small child who bumped into him, but Briggs claimed self-defense. And last week, a jury acquitted him on murder charges.

We’re taking another look at Springfield Armory’s new full-size pistol, the Echelon, for a number of reasons. First and foremost, Springfield Armory has designed it to be eminently shootable, robust and accurate—all excellent features in a pistol you’d want to carry for self-defense. While it’s touted as a duty-size pistol, there’s no reason it can’t also function as a concealed-carry handgun with a few simple wardrobe adjustments.

In the aftermath of the shooting, the local authorities have refrained from filing charges against Wallace, and the case is poised for review by a grand jury. Despite acting in what she believed to be a necessary defense of her family, Wallace now faces eviction from her home, on the grounds of a firearm violation as per the property management's policies. "The apartments called and told me that I was not supposed to have a gun at all," Wallace said. In addition to this unforeseen turn of events, Wallace is contending with the gravity of taking the life of a young teen, expressing deep remorse while standing by her instinctive need to protect her kin.

Gun rights advocates last week filed a federal lawsuit against the state of Vermont over what they call unconstitutional gun laws, and they’re asking the court to order authorities to stop enforcing them.

“The Vermont Legislature has done more than just infringe on that right,” said Chris Bradley with the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs.

The group is challenging a law passed this year requiring a 72-hour waiting period for gun purchases. They are also looking to overturn a 2018 law banning high-capacity magazines.

Who introduced you to hunting and the shooting sports?
I am a proud native son of Louisiana – “the Sportsman’s Paradise” – where hunting and shooting sports are integral to our culture and a big part of our lives. My grandfather was a competitive marksman, and my family was like most in our area, where it seemed that everyone appreciated and participated as we did in the great American pastimes of hunting, fishing, and shooting. Those traditions are still cherished where we live, and I have been happy to pass them along to my own children.
 

CA: FPC Files Appellate Response Brief in Lawsuit Challenging California “Assault Weapon” Ban

Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced the filing of its response brief with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in its lawsuit challenging California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons.” The brief is the latest step in California’s appeal after the district court judge ruled in favor of FPC and struck down the state’s ban as unconstitutional under the Second Amendment. The brief in Miller v. Bonta can be viewed at FPCLaw.org.

“The district court correctly held that the arms banned under the challenged provisions are ‘in common use’ today for lawful purposes,” argues the brief.
 

Senator Mike Braun, colleagues introduct bill to hold AFT accountable, give certainty to gun owners & manufacturers

U.S. Senator Mike Braun reintroduced the ATF Accountability Act to provide transparency to gun owners across America on rules made by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). The ATF engages in a secretive classification review process where the agency makes decisions about whether a particular firearm is regulated by the National Firearms Act. Decisions and justification for decisions are often only made available to manufacturers in private correspondence. This causes a lot of uncertainty for both gun-owning Americans and firearm manufacturers, especially in combination with the ATF’s refusal to make final public rules regarding classification.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court decided New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen in 2022, the lower courts have been either trying to apply, or to resist, its directive to decide the validity of restrictions on the basis of the text of the Second Amendment and historical analogues from the time of the Founding. According to the ruling, an activity is presumed to be protected if it involves keeping and bearing arms by the people. The burden is then on the government to find historical precedents to show that a restriction is part of the nation’s history and tradition.
 

MO: Opposing red flag law proposals ‘unlikely’ to move in Missouri legislature, leader says

Missouri House Majority Floor Leader Jon Patterson, R-Lee’s Summit, said the general assembly is not likely to make any progress either imposing or restricting laws related to Extreme Risk Protection Orders, commonly referred to as ‘red flag’ laws.

“I think you’re unlikely to see legislation on guns, whether it’s a Red Flag Law or an anti-Red Flag Law,” Patterson said. “I think the number one thing you can do to address gun violence is to just address crime.”

Soon, Kentucky lawmakers from both sides of the aisle intend to file a bill that would create one of these systems.

Across the country, 21 states and Washington D.C. have implemented some form of an emergency risk protection order. Indiana is one of those states — which passed its law in 2005.

One study associated a 7.5% drop in firearm suicides in the decade after the Indiana law was passed.

David Pucino, legal director for the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, explains similar results have been found in other states too.

When parents heard that the store’s owners, Daniel and Ellen Retting, had decided to retire, they rallied to urge the city council to step in and ensure the property — which is less than 1,000 feet away from La Ballona Elementary School — would not be occupied by another gun retailer.

“It wasn't about gun ownership, or Second Amendment rights,” said Melody Hansen, a Culver City resident whose children attend La Ballona Elementary. “It's just about a gun store should not be next to a school.”

Recently, we reported on the establishment of the White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention, an effort by the Biden Administration to funnel taxpayer dollars to the partisan project of gun control. Whatever else can be said of the office, it is at least trying to justify its existence by staying busy, to the detriment of law-abiding gun owners.

When it comes to owning a firearm, it’s important to choose the right action for your intended use. The action of a firearm refers to the mechanism that loads, fires, and ejects cartridges. There are several different types of actions available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.

The most common types of firearm actions are bolt-action, lever-action, pump-action, and semi-automatic.
 

The Capacity Question: How Much is Enough?

How much ammunition is enough? In particular, how much magazine capacity in a defensive handgun is enough? Who knows. Trends and averages would tell us that relatively low-capacity handguns usually prove entirely capable of getting armed citizens out of trouble. Of course, most defensive gun uses require no shots fired at all. The problem remains, however, that averages do little good for the individual who finds themselves in a violent encounter that lies outside of the curve.

Senate Bill 2 would ban Californians from carrying firearms in most public places and many private facilities that have high foot traffic.

It was a high-profile law that was approved this past legislative session and signed by Governor Gavin Newsom. It was set to take effect on January 1st, but a federal judge has temporarily blocked it, arguing that it would effectively abolish Second Amendment rights.

Ohio House Bill 51, proposing Ohio to become a “Second Amendment” sanctuary state, attempts to exempt Ohio from any future federal gun control laws. Per sponsor testimony from Republican Jean Schmidt, the bill “will ensure Ohioans Second Amendment rights are not infringed” by making Ohio exempt from laws such as background checks, red flag laws, and assault weapons bans. But who does this bill really protect?

CRPA joined with our friends at Gun Owners of California, Gun Owners of America, Gun Owners Foundation, and Second Amendment Foundation to file a motion for a temporary restraining order that would block enforcement of requirements put in place by SB 1384, which mandates the recording of all transactions conducted anywhere an FFL conducts business.

Tuesday, the same allies filed a lawsuit known as Richards v. Newsom that aims to stop the law entirely. If granted, the TRO would prevent the law from being implemented until that case is decided.

So we’re glad to see that illegal possession of guns is on track to be the most-booked crime in Charleston County for the third consecutive year. A report released last week by the Charleston County Criminal Justice Coordinating Council found that nearly a third of the people jailed through October were charged under S.C. Code Section 16-23-20, which makes it a crime to carry a gun in most circumstances if you don’t have what used to be called a concealed-weapons permit.
 

IL: Key part of Illinois assault weapon bans survives injunction bid

More than simply denying the plaintiffs' attempt to block the registration provision, McGlynn granted a motion by the state defendants — including Pritzker and Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul — to dismiss the gun advocates 14th Amendment claims outright. It represents a partial about-face for the same conservative judge who in April issued an injunction against the bans as a whole.

An order from the Seventh Circuit stayed that injunction in May, and it was the appellate court's November ruling, the same one McGlynn cited in his opinion Friday, that ultimately vacated it.
