Detroit Police said a homeowner with a CPL shot and killed an armed man who entered his home Monday evening.

According to police, the shooting happened around 7 p.m. at a home on Fenton, just west of Telegraph between McNichols and 7 Mile.

Detroit Police said a suspect entered the home with a long gun without permission. Once inside, he confronted an occupant inside and pointed his gun at the man inside.

At some point, the resident pulled his handgun and shot the man multiple times. The 22-year-old man died at the scene.

Officers recovered both guns and the homeowner, who is a CPL holder, was detained for questioning.

They warn a Democratic majority would end the Senate filibuster that requires 60 votes for most legislation, “pack” the Supreme Court by adding “radical” justices to offset the high court’s conservative majority, make possible the election of up to four more Democratic senators by approving statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, curb Second Amendment gun rights, pass such progressive favorites as the Green New Deal and “Medicare for All” and slash spending for the military and law enforcement.

The presiding judge of the 7th Judicial Circuit has written a proposed order saying judges won't appear in Custer County court and trials will take place in Rapid City after the Custer County Commission passed an ordinance allowing guns inside the courthouse.

"Due to the action by the Custer County Commission in adopting ordinance 2020-18, which allows for firearms to be carried in the courthouse, the Custer County Courthouse is currently unsuitable and insufficient due to safety concerns," Judge Craig Pfeifle wrote in his proposed order.

An incoming Republican congresswoman from Colorado has a lighthearted proposal on how to get Democrats to accept the concealed carry of firearms.

“Democrats should think of concealed carry as masks for our guns,” Rep.-elect Lauren Boebert, 33, tweeted Thursday. “Maybe then they’d support it!”

The entrepreneur-turned-congresswoman, who describes herself as “the mom who told Beto ‘Hell no, you’re not takin' our guns,’” said she’s the first mother to be elected to represent her district.

Christmas is coming up, and everyone is looking for last-minute gifts or maybe getting themselves a little something extra. As a gun guy myself, I know that not all gifts for us have to be firearms. I also know that budgets vary widely, so I made a guide with five different items at different price points that range from $25 to $16,000.

Speaking about the filming process of the 1993 cult-classic “Dazed and Confused,” Ben Affleck said the cast frequented gun ranges—something the actor said was “fun and innocent at the time,” but is now “uncomfortable to remember.”

“Part of the newfound freedom being down there [in Texas] was a bunch of us bought guns and went shooting at ranges on weekends, which seemed fun and innocent at the time, but given the subsequent tragedies with young people and guns, it makes me uncomfortable to remember,” Affleck said to Vanity Fair.

The detective testified that Rosenbaum was chasing Rittenhouse before he was shot. After that shooting, he said, Rittenhouse was running away and fell to the ground, shooting Huber after Huber hit Rittenhouse with a skateboard. Another man, who was seen on video trying to kick Rittenhouse, was never identified, Antaramian testified.

“The state is trying to put forward a one-sided view of what happened, protecting someone who does not deserve protection, he’s a masked robber,” Richards said of Rosenbaum.
 

Banning pepper spray on college campus is one of many failures to prioritize the issue of sexual assault

For women, walking across campus after a late night in the library or at a club meeting can be a treacherous journey. The unfortunate truth is that women will always face a risk.

Outside of college, women can take comfort in knowing there are safety measures to prevent uncomfortable or dangerous situations: self-defense tactics, carrying your keys between your knuckles and buying tasers, mace or pepper spray.

But, Boston University — a public campus intertwined with the city and readily open to whomever passes you on Commonwealth Avenue — bans the use of pepper spray and mace.

You’re working behind the counter at a gas station convenience store. It is 10 in the morning on a weekday when a man comes in wearing a hoodie, dark glasses, a facemask, and gloves. Come on, it is 60 degrees and sunny, so that outfit looks suspicious. The customer walks up to the counter and pulls a gun out of his sweatshirt. The robber says to give him the money from the register. You ask if he’s joking.

While researching pistol uses in self-defense from bears, I noticed the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) bear mortality database listed a self-defense killing on 8 August of 2009. The database did not indicate what kind of firearm might have been used.

Years later, Bridger Petrini gave me a lead to the person who had been attacked and had defended himself with a .41 magnum single-action revolver.

Tanner Allen, who lives in Wyoming, is an accomplished hunting dog trainer and dog breeder. His hounds are sought after by big game hunters to improve their packs. They are noted for their ability to trail and hold mountain lions and bears.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation reported an increase of 45.2 percent in the NSSF-adjusted background checks initiated with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) over November of 2019, as gun sales continue to soar.

According to the industry umbrella group, “The year-to-date total of 19.1 million adjusted background checks continues to add to a record-setting year for firearm sales. The previous complete annual record of 15.7 million background checks was set in 2016. NSSF retailer surveys estimate that nearly 7.7 million people purchased a firearm for the first time in 2020.”
