Responsible gun owners defended innocent strangers, but you didn't see it on the news. Instructor Ben Branam joins host Rob Morse to talk about three recent examples.

First Story- You’re walking down the street. You hear a woman scream. You see a man attacking the woman who delivers your mail. The attacker has the mail carrier down on the ground and he is pulling at her clothes.
Second Story- You’re having breakfast at a restaurant. You look up as two men enter in hurry. They're wearing hoodies..and have guns drawn.
Third story- You look out of your car to see a man on top of a police officer him hitting him.

What would you do in these situations? What should you do? Text and podcast available at the link. (17 minutes)

 

MI: State accused of making gun owners 'cash cows' as permit revenues rise

The Michigan State Police collected about $7.7 million in concealed pistol license fees over a year, according to the latest figures in a report released by the agency.

That's about $1.6 million more than the $6.1 million annual average over 5 years, according to MSP figures.

About $1.9 million of the funds went to the MSP Concealed Pistol License Unit, & about $5.8 million fund support systems utilized by the CPL unit, the report states.

The leader of a gun rights group said the fees are too expensive when compared to other states, and he thinks the MSP should have to disclose exactly what the revenue is spent on.

"They're using CPL holders as cash cows," Tom Lambert, president of the nonprofit Michigan Open Carry Inc., said.

A Kansas City, Kan., woman said she never wanted her ex-fiancé, who she said broke into her home, shoved her and threatened to kill her over the weekend, to die.

Misty Bartlett, 43, was home with a friend and her 8-year-old son about 11 p.m. Saturday watching a movie when a fist pounding on their sliding glass door startled them.

Her ex-fiancé, Jarrod O’Donnell, 48, shattered the glass and attacked her, Bartlett said. The friend in the home eventually shot and killed O’Donnell, an act that Bartlett said was in self-defense.

School resource officers are appreciated and are part of security, but they are only a part.

The West Virginia Citizen’s Defense League is tuning the opposition out on the controversial campus carry bill making it’s way through the House of Delegates.

“The doom and gloom, blood running through the streets fantasy that they concoct in opposition to people exercising their ability to defend themselves never come true,” Keith Morgan said Wednesday on “Talkline” with Hoppy Kercheval. “It just doesn’t happen.”

How my trip to the shooting range changed how I think about gun owners

I did not go to a shooting range expecting to learn anything other than how to shoot a gun. It was just something new and interesting that I wanted to try. For most of my life I had been inundated with information, misinformation and political messaging surrounding guns and those who own them. It was another on a long list of topics that I was expected to have an opinion on without having any first-hand knowledge. Having grown up in a predominantly liberal environment, I was taught to associate guns with mass shootings, hicks and the ominous National Rifle Association.

More than 100 people, including many mothers, rallied Wednesday at the Capitol to denounce three bills that would relax Kentucky's gun restrictions, particularly at public schools and universities.

Volunteers for the Kentucky chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a grassroots movement dedicated to preventing gun violence, said they believe the bills pose a danger to Kentuckians of all ages.

Americans have been living with the reality of school shootings for 20 years.

In that time, educators have hardened schools' defenses with bulletproof entrances, active shooter training, security consultants and a host of sometimes creative, sometimes desperate safety solutions: from teacher-invented door-jamming devices to front-office iris scanners to $120 “ballistic panels” for children’s backpacks.

Geraldo Rivera let his emotions take over during his appearance on Hannity late on Wednesday. The Fox News contributor had already shown some strong opinions about the shooting in Florida earlier on Twitter, but his feelings alongside guests Larry Elder, David Clarke, and host Sean Hannity took a different direction than you’d normally expect from Fox News.
 

MD: Maryland Medical Marijuana Users Can’t Get A Gun Permit, But Senate Bill Could Change That

Jokingly calling it the “libertarian bill of the year,” Maryland senators heard testimony this week on a bill that would allow medical marijuana patients in the state to get permits to possess and carry handguns, which they are currently not allowed to do.

Under existing law, Maryland State Police can deny anyone a permit to own or carry a gun on the grounds that they are a “habitual” user of the drug. But Senate Bill 602 would clarify that no one could be denied a permit to possess or carry a gun “solely on the basis that the person is authorized to use medical cannabis.”

State Rep. Donna Lichtenegger knows the toll violence can take.

Growing up, she watched her mother get beaten. And the Jackson Republican has two scars of her own from when she was assaulted by a man in the middle of the night.

“No matter who you are, people should not hurt you,” Lichtenegger said.

Mika Brzezinski started off Thursday's Morning Joe by recapping Wednesday's mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which a lone gunman killed 17 people. "Mika, here we are again," Joe Scarborough said, listing off some statistics: more than 33,000 people killed by guns in the U.S. each year, 1,607 mass shootings and 430 people shot in schools since the 2012 murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School, "where we said 'never again.'"

Potter County grand jurors no-billed an employee of La Bella Pizza on Olsen on Wednesday, saying he acted in self-defense during a shooting that left one robber dead at the restaurant last month.

The grand jury also changed the charge of another alleged robber, Ruben Ryel Rios, from felony murder to aggravated robbery. Both are first-degree felonies, but Potter County District Attorney Randall Sims said his office felt “the facts better suit the aggravated robbery, which was the underlying offense for the felony murder” charge.

The real fight is the effort by some Democratic legislators to clear up particularly bad drafting in the college gun bill. The law prohibits "storage" of a weapon in college dorms, but doesn't prevent people from walking into, through and around college dorm rooms with guns. How would you like to unpack for your freshman year and see the outline of a Glock beneath your roommate's Go Hogs nightshirt?

America's most popular weapon was there for all of them.

AR-15-style rifles have increasingly appeared in American mass shootings, including the deadliest high school shooting in the nation's modern history at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., Wednesday.

Guns: Gun advocates are pushing for House Bill 228 — a so-called “stand your ground” bill that would change the law on the duty to retreat and the burden of proof in self-defense cases. Under current law, the defendant has to prove he acted in self-defense. It is one of about a dozen gun bills pending in the General Assembly.

An Oklahoma House committee signed off Wednesday on a proposed expansion of the state’s "stand your ground" law.

House Bill 2632 by Rep. Greg Babinec would add places of worship to the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act as locations where killing someone in self-defense cannot be prosecuted. Rep. David Perryman said by not defining what a place of worship is, the bill is a backdoor attempt at constitutional carry.

Like many of his GOP colleagues, Rubio has repeatedly tweeted that his thoughts are with the latest mass-shooting victims, yet somehow it’s never the right time to dig in on the underlying causes. In the past year Democrats have introduced more than 30 pieces of legislation aimed at combatting gun violence, and only four have had GOP sponsors, according to the Washington Post.

In the fall of 2008, I went to a gun range I often visited and noticed an addition to the indoor décor: a photo of Barack Obama. But not an Obama I had seen before. This one had a Hitler mustache. The message was stark: Gun owners could expect no mercy from the Democratic nominee if he won the election.
