A Blackman Township man fired at least four times on Friday night at what he said was an intruder armed with a knife, police said. He left the house on Winifred Street with the homeowner's gun and pickup truck, and officers were searching for the vehicle, Blackman-Leoni Township public safety Deputy Director Christopher Boulter said about 11 p.m. Dec. 23.

Whether the man was hit by the gunfire was not clear. Boulter did not initially see any evidence he had been shot. Police had not received any hospital reports about a shooting victim.

The two struggled and the homeowner went by Jackson Community Ambulance to Henry Ford Allegiance Health with what Boulter said were facial injuries.

Illinois' concealed carry law doesn't allow patrons to bring firearms into a bar or restaurant that predominantly sells alcohol, but those restrictions don't apply on a party bus, where passengers provide their own booze. A Chicago ordinance approved in September requires party bus drivers to call police if patrons throw a beer bottle out the window or smoke marijuana. But a string of six shootings with injuries in 14 months involving party buses pointed to a gray area in the rules, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Quite a few years ago, I used to shoot like a cowboy. Well, not a real cowboy. I was involved in cowboy action shooting. This style of shooting was sponsored nationally by the Single Action Shooting Society. SASS was group of men and women who loved shooting old western-style firearms and formed a club to compete using single-action revolvers, lever guns and exposed-hammer shotguns. I was a member of SASS for a few years as member No. 26,452. They even give you a badge like deputies wore in the 19th century. I was also badge No. 25 with the Lincoln County Lawmen, a local affiliate of SASS. To add to the fun, part of the rules were you had to dress like a cowboy.

Vulnerable? In our politically correct world an elementary students gets sent home from school for making a gun with his finger, an anarchist child makes a cookie that could be a gun, and disciplinary actions are taken because he said “Bang, Bang.” But it hasn’t been this way for long. Merry Christmas!

Since last month's election, it seems that gun sales have been on the rise. One indicator is that FBI background checks for gun purchases shot up to their highest level in two years on Black Friday, according to the gun control news site The Trace. And another group has been reporting a recent rise in the number of people interested in guns, The Liberal Gun Club. That's an organization for left-leaning gun lovers. It has nine chapters and members in all 50 states.

For years, Second Amendment advocates have argued that gun-free zones invite opportunities for mass shootings. The sentiment was a popular refrain during a series of hearings earlier this year about changes to the state's gun laws, with several advocates arguing that had guns been carried in churches, Dylann Roof would not have been able to kill nine parishioners at Emanuel AME Church.

The Rev. Michael Pfleger has turned to the cross. Almost 800 crosses, actually, marching down Chicago’s North Michigan Avenue. White, wooden crosses, etched with the names of the dead, the murder victims of 2016. Crosses borne by loved ones left behind, neighbors, friends and anyone else who cares.
“The violence is driving me out of my mind,” Pfleger said over the phone. Last week, I called Pfleger, the pastor of St. Sabina Catholic Church and crusader against guns and mayhem. His voice was plaintive, tinged with desperation.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
