Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear it in the news. Instructor Elizabeth Hautman joins host Rob Morse to talk about three new examples.

First story- It is late on a Saturday evening when you arrive home with your 12 year old daughter. A strange man comes out of a closet and attacks you.

Second story- You’re shopping late at night. Three men enter the store and announce a robbery. They shoot the store owner. You’re armed.

Third story- You hear the sound of breaking glass. You roll out of bed and grab your gun from your nightstand. You yell the intruder to leave your home. He shoots at you several times.

What would you do in these situations? Text and podcast available at the link. (15 minutes)

In the wake of last week’s mass shooting at a Florida high school and the outcry for more gun control by students and parents, Michigan legislators may start the Second Amendment debate by looking at bills that would keep weapons out of the hands of people with mental health problems.

At least 48 bills have been introduced to either expand or restrict access to guns and other weapons since the beginning of 2017. While most of the bills are stuck in legislative committees, unable to get a vote, two that deal specifically with removing guns from people who have mental health issues may take precedence over bills that will expand access to guns.

A Manhattan appeals court threw out an 18 year manslaughter conviction for a former Corrections Officer found guilty of killing his daughter’s boyfriend during a heated argument– because he likely acted in self-defense. The former CO, Darryl Brown, shot Vonde Cabbagestalk with his Glock pistol in the lobby of his Bronx building in March 2014 after warning him to “stay away from my daughter,” according to a witness.

About 18,000 people in Mercer County carry a concealed weapon. But unlike Ohio, Pennsylvania does not require permit holders to first take a course. That's one reason why the county's Critical Incident Response Team offered a class Monday night covering firearm laws, as well as 'use of force' laws.

When it comes to guns, it often appears as though liberals and conservatives are speaking different languages. Liberals express their horror at each new mass shooting and demand government action, while conservatives call for “thoughts and prayers” and insist on respect for the Second Amendment.

In a tumultuous world, it’s good to know that we can always rely on the Federalist Society. While GOP lawmakers duck behind the new and improved “thoughts and prayers,” the Federalist Society is there to run face first into the belt sander of tone-deaf responses.

President Donald Trump, who came into office with support from the nation’s gun owners, has reportedly signed a memo to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that directs the Department of Justice to propose regulations that could ban so-called “bump stock” devices, the Associated Press is reporting.

The president’s directive reportedly wants the Justice Department to “ban all devices” that increase the rate of fire of a semi-automatic rifle. Bump stocks were used by Steven Paddock during his Oct. 1, 2017 rampage in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and hundreds injured. It is the only identified crime in which one of the accessory devices was used.

If you’ve turned off your TV in disgust over coverage of the Parkland massacre, let me catch you up:

It’s the gun’s fault. It’s the President’s fault. It’s the NRA’s fault. It’s the FBI’s fault. It’s Gov. Scott’s fault. It’s DCF’s fault. It’s the (standard capacity) magazine’s fault. It’s the gun industry’s fault. It’s the gun dealer’s fault. It’s the ammunition’s fault. It’s the gun community’s fault. It’s the school’s fault. It’s the teachers’ fault. It’s society’s fault.

Did you see her? I can’t forget her. I don’t even know how Lori Alhadeff was able to stand on two legs after making arrangements to bury her 14-year-old daughter, Alyssa, one of the victims of Wednesday’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. But there Alhadeff was, pleading, screaming for change.

The Supreme Court made clear again Tuesday that the government has broad power to restrict and regulate firearms, dismissing a 2nd Amendment challenge to California's 10-day waiting period for new gun purchases. While the court has ruled that the 2nd Amendment protects the right of law-abiding citizens to own guns, the justices have repeatedly refused to go further by blocking strict gun regulations, including state bans on the sale of semi-automatic weapons or limits on who can carry a weapon in public.

The latest poll from Quinnipiac University shows two thirds of Americans now support stricter gun laws, including half of gun owners. That's the highest level of support ever measured. A hunter since he was a kid, and a Marine for 20 years, Joe Plenzler was a proud member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). That's until he saw an ad last year that targeted opponents of the gun rights group.

A Bellevue gun shop owner is now getting national attention and persuading others in the industry to follow his lead. Jason Cazes has been talking to Q13 News since last week about his idea not to sell long guns to most people under 21. Under state law, a person only has to be 18 to buy a long gun -- but has to be 21 to buy a handgun.

Creating stricter gun laws in the wake of last week’s Florida school shooting can still ensure both personal safety and the right to bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment, said U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind. The shooting incident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by a 19-year-old that resulted in the deaths of 17 people and the issue of gun control were among several topics the senator discussed Monday morning during a stop in Columbus at The Republic.

Six days after a gunman murdered 17 students and adults at a Florida school, Pennsylvania lawmakers introduced 11 bills aimed at preventing similar mass shootings. One would ban assault weapons like the AR-15 used in the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The same weapon was used at mass shootings at a Las Vegas concert; Newtown, Conn., elementary school; Orlando night club; and a Texas church among others since 2012.

A generation ago, had the school board in my small town scheduled a vote to potentially arm school staff and administrators, no one would have batted an eye. Back then, students in Mancos, Colorado, hung rifles in trucks for hunting before and after school. Guns were in the building; as recently as 1998, boys and girls took hunter safety classes in the middle school. When he was a teacher, now-school Superintendent Brian Hanson says he bought a gun from a student’s parent during math class.
