MI: Guns rights groups aim to block Whitmer's appointment to Natural Resources Commission
Submitted by: Corey Salo

Guns rights groups are mobilizing supporters to block Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's appointee to the Michigan Natural Resources Commission.

Whitmer named former Grand Rapids Mayor George K. Heartwell, a Democrat from Newaygo, to the commission on Feb. 7.

Heartwell has long been an outspoken advocate for gun control. The Grand Rapids Press reported he criticized Congress in 2014 for its inaction on regulating weapons and his belief that "guns make us less safe."

Heartwell also is active in environmental groups. He serves on the Environmental Law and Policy Center Advisory Board and the Great Lakes Water Quality board.

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is a rising star in the Democratic Party. A mere year ago, few could have picked him out of a police lineup. Now he’s the presumptive front-runner of the centrist faction of the party and – for the moment, at least – the most likely person for “Stop Bernie” forces to coalesce around.

Billionaire Johnny-come-lately presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is gearing up for some important primaries next month, with a candidate’s statement—at least in the Washington State Voter’s Pamphlet—that extolls his virtues but strangely downplays one important part of his story.
 

MI: Oceana says ‘no’ to sanctuary county; Board votes to support Second Amendment, but strips use of word 'sanctuary'

No Second Amendment Sanctuary will be attached to Oceana County’s name following action by the Oceana County Board of Commissioners Thursday at its regular meeting in Hart.

Instead, the county board went on record as supporting the Second Amendment and not use of the word “sanctuary.” The move took two votes as the first vote that would have named the county a sanctuary county as originally presented in January failed in a 4-3 vote.

MI: MI Natural Resources Commission Appointment Rejected
Submitted by: Corey Salo

Majority Michigan State Senators, in a rare move, are rejecting an appointment by Governor Gretchen Whitmer to the Michigan Natural Resources Commission. Only one Republican Senator voted in favor of the appointment of Anna Mitterling to the NRC. Another Republican was absent from the vote. There’s talk at the Capitol that the vote is a response to another of Whitter’s NRC appointments. Whiter named former Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell to be Chair of the NRC. Opposition to his appointment is significantly noisier than the opposition to Mitterling. Many conservatives say to have someone with the open anti-firearms views of Heartwell leading the panel that among other things, sets hunting regulations in Michigan, is too much to accept.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that a federal lawsuit has been filed against Armslist.com by the widow of slain Chicago Police Cmdr. Paul Bauer, with support of the Brady gun-control organization. Bauer was killed in February 2018 allegedly by a convicted felon identified as Shomari Legghette, using a pistol that, according to the report and the lawsuit, “passed along through both licensed and private sales until it wound up in the hands” of the suspect, who could not legally possess a firearm.

One of the most obvious ways to reduce felt recoil is to add weight to our firearms. Henry offers two .44 Magnum leverguns, one much heavier than the other. I have also had some leverguns, especially those chambered in .45-70 rebarreled with heavier octagon barrels. Until this past year from the time of my surgery I had not shot anything heavier than a .243 rifle but I wanted to shoot something heavier. Finally, I saw the solution.

For clarification, the definition of due process, as outlined in both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution, prohibits the government from taking any action that would deprive a person of “life, liberty or property without due process of law.” This includes a hearing before an impartial person, representation by an attorney, calling witnesses on one’s behalf, to be confronted with the witness against you and to cross-examination of witnesses, a written decision with reasons based on evidence introduced, a transcript of the proceeding, and an opportunity to appeal the decision before the government takes a citizen’s property.
 

We Need a “National Crime Survivor Week”

Last week, anti-gun group Moms Demand Action heavily promoted “National Gun Violence Survivors Week” on their website and on social media. The group posted tragic stories of those who have been affected by or survived gun violence. You’d have to be a robot not to flinch while reading them.

Yet, the women reading these stories should also be aware of an equally important demographic: those who have been the victims of crimes because they weren’t able to defend themselves by using a firearm. The latest Department of Justice crime statistics shows that while crime overall has declined, rape and other sexual crimes have increased.

VA: Virginia’s HB961 Is a Ban Under the Guise of Compromise

Compromise is a sneaky way of slipping a ban past Virginia voters.

That’s exactly what Virginia’s House of Delegates did, led by Delegate Mark Levine. He authored HB 961, a bill to ban “assault firearms” that was passed by a three-vote margin. The bill would ban the sale of semiautomatic firearms that are commonly used for self-defense, recreational and competitive shooting and hunting, as well as suppressors. Standard capacity magazine possession would become a crime. It now heads to the Virginia Senate Judiciary Committee.

Detectives investigating the Golden Stop Liquor shooting that occurred Feb. 2 believe the store owner acted in self-defense when he reportedly shot and killed a suspect during a robbery.

“It’ll be presented to the district attorney,” sheriff’s Lt. Robert Westphal said, adding that he doubts the district attorney will press charges against the store owner.

The Air Force Gunsmith Shop – part of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s Armament Directorate – recently completed delivery of a new rifle for aircrew in most ejection seat aircraft.

Known as the Aircrew Self Defense Weapon (GAU-5A), which is a 5.56 mm caliber rifle, was designed by the Gunsmith Shop in close coordination with the small arms engineer to provide downed aircrew with additional firepower while they wait for rescue.
 

MI: Red flag laws stuck while Second Amendment sanctuary idea grows

Legislation to allow law enforcement officials to temporarily confiscate firearms if their owners are a risk to themselves or others has remained stalled in committee for a year.

The extreme risk protection order — or “red flag” — bills would allow law enforcement officials to get a court order to seize weapons under such circumstances.
Seventeen states have red flag laws, including Illinois and Indiana, according to the Pew Charitable Trusts.

House and Senate members introduced the bills in February 2019, and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer tweeted her support.

An Arizona Senate panel on Thursday advanced a measure that would make government entities that don’t allow guns on their property liable if people are shot on their premises.

The proposal from Republican Sen. David Gowan would allow anyone to sue if they or loved ones are injured or killed after being barred from carrying weapons for self-defense on government property.

The measure is the latest in a years-long series of pro-gun measures that are routinely approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature.

We often find ourselves arguing statistics with anti-gun people. Let’s put the conversation into perspective. I will give you some statistics and I’ll also expose the anti-gun left’s real motives for gun control. First of all, don’t you think that if someone really wanted to save lives, they would focus their attention on an area where the most lives are lost? If you’ll notice, Anti-Gunners miss that piece of logic and gravitate toward any justification for gun control laws regardless of its inability to save lives.

The Viridian Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC) provided the key evidence in the Wilbarger County, Texas trial of Walter Orellana for unlawful deadly force against a police officer. Viridian officials attended the trial where prosecution evidence was presented of the April 2019 incident in which Vernon, Texas Police Corporal T.J. Session was shot by Orellana while conducting a felony arrest warrant.

Session returned fire in the incident.

The Vernon Police Department had previously deployed Weapon-Mounted Cameras (WMCs) for all of its officers, and the Viridian WMC on Session’s firearm captured the incident. This video and audio footage was presented to the Wilbarger County jury on the first day of trial.
 

Bloomberg ‘Stop and Frisk’ Racism Stories Omitting His Most Damning Demand

“Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said.”

That group contains legal adults. It also contains citizens, voters, veterans. To treat them all like violent criminals and blanket strip them of a fundamental right without a charge or even the pretense of due process would be the act of a mad tyrant.
