Have you been through this lately– You turn on the “news” only to see a 12-year-old lecturing you about “doing something” about “the guns” because he or she doesn't feel safe in school? Scolding you because as adults we aren't doing “enough” about “the guns” that are killing everyone his or her age?

If you’re like me, then you hate the idea of a madman hurting our children. Unfortunately, it has been happening for a long time, but probably not the way you think. If a criminal can bring a firearm onto college campus to rob our students, then what is to stop a madman from doing the same thing..or worse?

Here are the latest examples.

We care about our children. That is why we take the debate on murderers in our schools so seriously. It is hard to get good information because the news media clearly has an agenda. Lots of people saw through the media spin. We looked past the click-bait headlines and focused on the truth.

Here are several pieces of the answer.
 

America has two gun cultures: Don't blame law-abiding gun owners for murders

No, the truth that is many in the media refuse to cover the truth about guns and the gun cultures in America. They don’t want to admit there are two wildly different gun cultures in our country. One is the freedom-loving, gun-rights culture that upholds the responsible use of guns for hunting, sport and self-defense. The other is the criminal culture that thrives in the places where government restricts gun rights.

Not acknowledging that the two cultures exist separately, and instead pretending legal gun owners are responsible for crimes committed by the illegal gun culture in America, isn’t just a lie. It is getting good people killed.

Lawmakers are discussing a controversial bill that would allow some adults to carry a firearm without a permit.

A House member who authored the legislation said the bill is needed in the name of self-defense.

"We depend too much on government, and I think it is one of the reasons why we're in the place that we are right now," said Rep. Jeff Coody, R-Grandfield.
 

GA: The right to bear arms

America’s Founders understood human nature and included the Bill of Rights in our Constitution.

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Since the liberals dominate the press and universities, they have historically insisted the solution to crime is “Gun Control” meaning restrict gun ownership. However, statistics show that increased ownership of guns reduces crime.

Common sense and previous mass shootings demonstrate that perpetrators prefer “gun free zones” to commit mass murder. Why, because a good person with a gun is the solution to a bad person with a gun. The examples are too numerous to mention.

Many students who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have turned into outspoken gun control advocates. Some of them say their stance on gun rights has changed. Others believed if they stayed silent, nothing would change.

About 100 of them traveled to the state capital to talk to Florida lawmakers Wednesday about tougher gun restrictions. During their 400-mile trip to Tallahassee, they spoke with The Associated Press.

What’s more of a public health risk: assault weapons or porn?

After 17 students and teachers were gunned down at a Florida high school, the state Legislature voted 71-36 Tuesday against a measure to consider banning the sale of assault weapons.

But on the same day, it declared pornography to be a public health risk.
 

MO: The problem with 'stand your ground' law

The facts of the widely publicized case — disagreement about how much a dog can weigh turns into a fight that becomes deadly — are still a little murky, but even now, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch is telegraphing that the case may turn in part on Missouri’s “stand your ground” law. The reason why “standing your ground” is even an issue shows precisely why the law in Missouri is so problematic.
 

3 Common Misconceptions About Handgun Sights

Clearly, Big Dot sights aren’t intended for NRA Precision Pistol Matches. Rather, they’re made for self-defense handguns with the emphasis on speed, clarity, and "good enough" accuracy at self-defense ranges.

What’s the bottom line? When you look at the real numbers, that huge front sight doesn’t cover much of your target at all. At 25 yards, it’s just 6.6 inches, and that is a much farther distance than 99.9 percent of defensive shooting scenarios.
 

Does the Second Amendment really protect assault weapons? Four courts have said no.

Almost exactly a year ago, a federal appeals court considered whether a Maryland law banning assault weapons was unconstitutional.

The law was passed in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, which left 20 first-graders and six adults dead after a man bearing an AR-15 style weapon stormed the Connecticut school.
 

Assault Weapons Preserve the Purpose of the Second Amendment

Arguments about guns tend to suffer from two distinct problems. The first — and most obvious — is they quickly get screechy. The arguments devolve into shouting matches and temper tantrums. The goal isn’t to persuade but to mock and bully, as if stigma alone can decisively shift the public debate. The second problem occurs when the debate gets too wonky. Charts and graphs fly across Twitter, as if fundamental questions about liberty and American society can be answered by the right kind of cross-country comparison with Australia, Great Britain, or Switzerland.

Republican Sen. Jeff Flake announced Wednesday he's backing a bill to increase the minimum age to buy a semi-automatic rifle, lending bipartisan support to legislation that was introduced last week by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein in the wake of the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

The Arizona Legislature likely won’t debate a single piece of gun control legislation this session, after House Democrats failed Tuesday to force a vote on a bill to ban bump stocks, which were used in the Las Vegas mass shooting.

Rep. Randall Friese and Rep. Daniel Hernandez, both Democrats from Tucson, co-sponsored a measure that would have banned trigger cranks, including bump stocks, that make it possible for a semi-automatic guns to be fired at nearly the rapidity of an automatic weapon.

NRA Public Affairs Director Jennifer Baker said in a statement, "Federal Law prohibits adults under the age of 21 from purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearm dealer. Legislative proposals that prevent law-abiding adults aged 18-20 years old from acquiring rifles and shotguns effectively prohibits them for purchasing any firearm, thus depriving them of their constitutional right to self-protection."

Another state lawmaker is targeting weapons like the AR-15, a popular semiautomatic rifle used in the recent Florida school shooting. Sen. Ira Silverstein, D-Chicago, filed a bill that would ban "assault weapons."

“I don’t know why people need these guns in the first place. They’re highly sophisticated powerful guns.”

Do you think elected officials fear being unseated should they vote for any type of gun control? Did you know that about 10 years ago Congress passed a law granting immunity from lawsuits to gun manufacturers?

The Second Amendment states: “A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms, shall not be infringed.” In a 5-4 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the majority opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008).

A proposal to allow Utah residents who are legally intoxicated to use a weapon as self-defense while in their home is being called hypocritical by the American Beverage Institute.

The national lobbying group has opposed a law approved last year that lowered the state’s blood alcohol content limit for drunken driving from 0.08 to 0.05.

The group published a full-page advertisement — with the headline “Too Drunk to Drive, But Sober Enough to Carry a .45?” — in Tuesday’s issue of the Salt Lake Tribune.
