"Collins knows this, of course, as do all gun-grabbers who would require registration, which is a prerequisite for confiscation. That increasing numbers of gun owners know that and have defiantly told those enacting such Intolerable Acts to get bent is not lost on impotent and enraged state monopoly of violence cultists, who vent their fury by demanding others employ that violence to bend the 'scofflaws' to their will."

Sheriff's officers cited seeing Van Gilder's vehicle "acting suspiciously in a known drug area" ahead of the traffic stop.
 

VT: Gun bill 'dead,' lawmakers narrow their focus

The firearms bill that stirred hundreds of Vermonters at a Statehouse public hearing is effectively "dead," the head of a key Senate committee says.

The bill's chief sponsor, however, says he still hopes that part of the proposal will move forward.

Supporters of the bill faced strong headwinds, including the opposition of Gov. Peter Shumlin and pushback from Vermont's hunters and police chiefs. The most controversial provision would have required almost all private gun sales to go through a federally licensed firearms dealer and a background check.

MI: Revised plan to scrap gun boards, overhaul pistol permit process approved by Michigan House

Legislation that would overhaul the process for obtaining a concealed pistol permit in Michigan is nearing the desk of Republican Gov. Rick Snyder -- again.

Snyder vetoed similar legislation late last year, citing concerns with a provision regarding personal protection orders for victims of domestic violence.

Sponsoring Sen. Mike Green, R-Mayville, introduced modified bills in January and the upper chamber approved the measures in the first official voting of the new session.

The House approved several other gun-related bills Wednesday, including measures that would exempt corrections officers from gun-free rules and define the term "brandishing" in state law. Those measures head to the Senate for further consideration.

Rabbis from European countries gathered in Prague Tuesday for training in self-defense and first aid in response to a wave of attacks against Jews and a rise of anti-Semitism on the continent.

In a stunning beginning of a training session, knives were distributed to dozens of rabbis, young and old, before they received instructions and practiced what to do to survive stabbing and how to treat injuries.

But they’re not helpful — in fact, they’re inappropriate — when it comes to a discussion of rights.

Take the First Amendment. Its speech clause exists particularly to protect unpopular speech.

“If there is a bedrock principle underlying the First Amendment, it is that the government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable,” Supreme Court Justice William Brennan wrote in 1989.

If there’s no protection for unpopular speech, then there’s no protection of speech at all.

16 members and supporters have already committed to the walk that'll take place near the Soncy entrance to Westgate Mall.
 

ID: Committee chairman: Concealed carry backers harassing family

The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance brought forward the proposed law, dubbed "Constitutional Carry," and is telling individuals to call lawmakers to urge a hearing be held on the bill.

"There are a lot of angry gun owners that want a hearing on House Bill 89," said Greg Pruett, the group's president.

Currently, Idaho residents who want to carry a concealed weapon need a permit. There are two types of permits available in Idaho, one of which requires training and is recognized as valid in some other states. The enhanced permit also allows holders to carry concealed weapons on college and university campuses, but with some restrictions.

he North Dakota House narrowly defeated a bill Tuesday that would have allowed lawmakers and some other public officials to pack heat in the state Capitol and other public buildings, before approving a bill that would allow concealed weapons in public parks.

Representatives voted 45-47 to defeat House Bill 1157, with two members were absent. Lead sponsor Rep. Ben Koppelman said was inspired by the Oct. 22, 2014, shootings at the Canadian parliament in Ottawa.

Intrepid Washington, D.C. reporter and author Emily Miller yesterday scored “preliminary approval” for one of the very few concealed carry permits issued by the Metropolitan Police Department, but as she noted in her story last night, she’s still a couple of steps away from packing heat in the nation’s capital.

First, the WTTG chief investigative journalist explained, she must first complete an 18-hour course with a certified instructor, and that has to happen within 45 days. After that, Miller said, whether she carries a pistol in the city is her private business.
 

NH: Gun right denied: A cautionary tale about licensing

The Supreme Court noted that carrying a firearm is a civil right, as established in two separate U.S. Supreme Court rulings. People who have had that right revoked because of a past conviction have to go through legal hurdles to get it back. Citizens who have never been convicted of anything should not be subjected to similar processes.

As Senate Bill 116 would ensure, they should be able to carry concealed without having to ask permission from the government first.

The Senate today gave key approval to a criminal domestic violence bill that bans gun possession for those convicted of the offense but not before allowing judges to decide whether to forbid guns for the lowest level of offense and for those subject to protective orders.

The final vote was 38-3, with three Upstate senators, all staunch Second Amendment advocates, voting against the bill: Sen. Tom Corbin of Travelers Rest, Sen. Shane Martin of Spartanburg County and Sen. Lee Bright of Spartanburg County.

Making both local and national news is a proposal by Assemblywoman Michelle Fiore, R-Las Vegas, to overturn college authorities’ right to prohibit carrying of concealed firearms on campuses.

It seems as though liberals find themselves on the horns of a dilemma in opposing her campus carry bill while simultaneously bewailing what they claim is an increase in sexual violence on college campuses.

Fiore said: “If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm I wonder how many men will want to assault them … the sexual assaults will go down once these sexual predators get a bullet in their head.”

A bill that would have allowed concealed weapons in Wyoming schools, government meetings and athletic events was heavily amended Wednesday in a Senate committee, provoking a strong reaction from the bill's sponsors.

House Bill 114, originally called the “Wyoming Repeal (of) Gun Free Zones Act,” is now “Gun-free zone modifications.”

The original bill covers three pages. The amended version, which is now a substitute bill, is 14 pages.

In September 2011 Clarkson posted a description of her first time shooting skeet to Facebook. She said it was fun but her right shoulder got pretty sore. A lot of skeet shooters have the same experience their first time shooting as well.
