A misguided attempt at show and tell resulted in Alliance police responding to a report of a gun found on a city school bus early Friday.

An all-call message from Alliance Early Learning School principal Tim Calfee went out to parents at approximately 2:45 p.m. Friday.

The recording stated, in part: “This morning, on Bus 5, one of the kindergarten students brought a gun onto the bus in their backpack. At the time, there was only one other student on the bus and the gun was shown to that student. That student reported it to the bus driver, who immediately stopped the bus and safely took the backpack and kept it in her possession.”

California’s ban on the possession of high-capacity gun magazines passes constitutional muster, a federal judge has ruled, though he gave the gun owners a fourth opportunity to make their case.

In his decision Wednesday, U.S. District Judge William Shubb also said the law doesn’t violate gun owners’ equal protection rights just because it exempts large-capacity magazines used as props in film and television.

An appellate court judge in Wisconsin has ruled that lifetime loss of Second Amendment rights is not on par with the threat of deportation when it comes to a lawyer’s duty to advise clients of the secondary effects of a guilty plea. The case is State of Wisconsin v. Amanda L. Longley.

After a confrontation with her child’s father and the man’s girlfriend, 29-year-old Amanda Longley of Wisconsin pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts, one involving disorderly conduct and the other battery. She was sentenced to one year of probation.
 

Can Governments Ban Gun Stores? Amicus Brief in Supreme Court Case

Can a county prohibit all new gun stores within its jurisdiction? That question is currently before the U.S. Supreme Court, in a petition for certiorari. Today I filed an amicus brief arguing that the Court should grant cert.

The case began several years ago, when Alameda County forbade John Teixeira and his partners to open a gun store anywhere within the jurisdiction of the county. The plaintiffs are represented by Alan Gura (winning attorney in District of Columbia v. Heller, and many other important Second Amendment cases), and Don Kilmer (the leading pro-Second Amendment attorney in Northern California). They lost in the district court, and then won a 2-1 decision from a Ninth Circuit panel.
 

The Arming and Disarming of Black America

“Rise Now and Fly to Arms!” That was Henry Highland Garnet’s exhortation to young black men when Abraham Lincoln finally opened the Union Army to black soldiers. A militant Presbyterian minister, Garnet had implored black Americans to fight slavery to the death. And when the opportunity came, he urged young black men to fight for the Union, despite the slights of unequal pay and a long delay before they were deemed worthy to serve.1 As a war hawk, Garnet advocated the ultimate form of political violence. But he also had a keen appreciation for the utility of private violence. He calculated that once black soldiers were armed and trained, America would be unable to deny their freedom, at least “not without a good fight.”2

South Carolina could move away from the folly of “gun free zones” if one pro-Second Amendment state lawmaker has his way …

State representative Mike Pitts of Laurens, S.C. is planning to introduce a bill that would permit “campus carry” in the Palmetto State. In other words, he’s going to file legislation that would allow college students who have concealed weapons permits to carry their guns on campus.

As of this writing, college campuses in South Carolina are gun-free zones.
 

DC: Chad Dukes Gives Caller A Lesson In Freedom

A caller into Chad Dukes vs. The World Friday didn’t like Dukes’ particular stance on guns (he owns a lot of them, as is his second amendment right, and always stresses the importance of being a responsible gun owner), so he decided to take it up with Big Shooter himself.

“Why are you promoting guns on a sporting show?” asked Ken in Woodbridge.

“And, by the way, why are you promoting that on a sports show?” he asked again. “We should talk about sports, not about shooting people.”

Dukes hadn’t made any reference to the act of shooting another person. On his Friday broadcasts, he typically fields questions of any topic from callers, and some take the opportunity to ask for advice on which gun they should purchase.

IN: At the boarding gate with weapons at ready

Hold those angry emails! The nuances of the Second Amendment are not on the menu today. Let's just stipulate that lots and lots of people are carrying guns these days. Many of them even have legal state permits.

Whether that's a good idea, whether it makes some of us safer or all of us more vulnerable, surely there's one thing we can all agree on: You don't try to take a firearm through an airport boarding checkpoint. Right?

Wrong. According to the Transportation Security Administration, a record 3,957 firearms, or 10.8 firearms per day, were discovered in carry-on baggage at airports across the country last year. That's a 16.7 percent increase over 2016.
