Republicans in the Arkansas Legislature introduced a so-called "stand-your-ground" self-defense bill Wednesday, vowing to enact the measure in 2021 after past efforts failed in the face of law enforcement opposition.

The legislation, Senate Bill 24, proposes to eliminate language from the state's criminal codes requiring a person to retreat, if possible, before using deadly force in self-defense. The bill was introduced by state Sen. Bob Ballinger, R- Berryville, and Rep. Aaron Pilkington, R-Clarksville, and co-sponsored by more than two dozen other GOP lawmakers.

A Daytona Beach woman told police she was in bed late Christmas Eve when her live-in boyfriend raised a tomahawk over her -- so she shot the man to death, she told detectives.

Authorities with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office are now investigating. Deputies were called to the home, on San Jose Boulevard, about 11:45 p.m. Thursday, according to a news release.

Georgia Rep.-elect Andrew Clyde arrived in the nation's capital with the unique distinction of already having a federal law named after him.

The gun store owner gained prominence for fighting back when the IRS suddenly seized nearly $1 million from his bank account in 2013.

Not only did Clyde win his civil asset forfeiture case against the IRS, but he got Congress to pass a law last year so the IRS could never do it again.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is withdrawing guidance for proposed gun regulation.

On Wednesday, the ATF said it would no longer move to re-classify certain weapons with pistol braces as short-barreled rifles. This announcement came after pressure from 90 members of Congress.

In a letter to the attorney general earlier this week, representatives said the new guideline would turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals overnight because short-barreled rifles require more paperwork for approval.
 

NY: New York City Approving Barely 10% Of New Gun Permits

Nervous residents of New York City (at least those who haven’t already fled the area) have been signing up in increasing numbers for firearms permits, many for the first time in their lives. Given the conditions on the ground there, that’s understandable. But making the decision to take advantage of your Second Amendment rights and actually laying your hands on a firearm legally are two very different things in the Big Apple these days.
 

Amy Coney Barrett steers the Supreme Court to the right, but not toward President Trump

Two months into Barrett's tenure, those fears look to be unfounded. But conservatives remain hopeful she will advance the cause of religious freedom, expand Second Amendment rights and cement a conservative majority on the nation's highest court.

They have reason to be confident. As successor to the late liberal Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Barrett made the difference last month in a 5-4 ruling that blocked strict COVID-19 limits on religious gatherings in New York. That ruling set a precedent the court since has applied in California, New Jersey and Colorado.

The change, deletes the “duty to retreat” in a public situation, and allows the same use of deadly force in any situation to defend oneself from “serious bodily harm or death” anywhere the person lawfully is. The new law as of this writing is awaiting Governor DeWine’s signature or veto. He should veto it.

Attorney General Jeff Landry has added Louisiana to a coalition of 16 states that have filed an amicus brief supporting the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James.

The NRA’s lawsuit seeks to block James’s politically motivated attempt in a separate lawsuit to dissolve the NRA, which is the country’s oldest civil rights organization and leading Second Amendment advocacy organization.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The "assault weapon" ban didn't stop the [World Trade Center/Pentagon] terrorists, Brady checks didn't stop them, the high capacity magazine ban didn't. Right to Carry would have. If it had saved only one tower and the people in it, it would have been worth it. GUN CONTROL KILLS. — LTC Stasski, 9/11/01
