A Michigan Appeals Court judge is facing a criminal investigation after a loaded handgun was found in his carry-on bag at Detroit Metro Airport on Sunday.

State Administrative Office spokesman John Nevin confirmed that the case is against Henry William Saad of Bloomfield Hills, who was appointed to the court in 1994. Nevin said there has been no change in Saad’s status with the court.

Saad, a former partner at the Dickinson, Wright, Moon, Van Dusen and Freeman law firm, has a term that expires in 2021, according to information from the court website. He has a permit to carry.
 

TX: University of Texas dean leaves school, citing campus carry gun law

A University of Texas dean said Thursday he’s leaving the school to pursue a different job in large part because of the new Texas law that will allow concealed firearms in public college classrooms.

Fritz Steiner, dean of the Texas School of Architecture, was named dean of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design.

Submitters note: Flaming liberal left for more money and took a shot at a gun law he didn't like. Furthermore, it is not illegal for a concealed carry permit holder to carry a gun anywhere at UOP. It is only against the university rules.
 

'Cecil Effect' dangerous for lions, guides

The international backlash against big game hunters triggered by last year's killing of a beloved lion named “Cecil” could spell doom for hundreds of the beasts who now roam a Zimbabwe preserve.

The deafening criticism after Cecil’s death in July has created a chilling effect among many in the industry, leading to more hunters staying home, animal populations growing out of control and a more dangerous environment for guides, say experts.

One Zimbabwean conservancy floated the idea of culling nearly 200 of its lions to fight overpopulation.

“Hunters in America now are even afraid to post photographs on Facebook and social media,” he said. “And with the groundswell of public opinion – how do you combat ignorance?”

Ordinary citizens like you stopped mass murder. Many people were at risk in the stories this month. You saved lives until the police could come and make the arrest.

You saved live in a shopping mall.
You saved lives in a convenience store.
You saved lives in a barbershop.
You did it, and the media never gave you credit.

Let be the first to say, “Thank you!”
 

Clinton confuses Constitution with Declaration of Independence in gun pitch

Constitution, Declaration of Independence ... whatever.

That seemed to be Hillary Clinton’s take on the nation’s two most important documents during an interview Wednesday, as she confused the texts in making the case for more gun laws.

The Democratic presidential front-runner mistakenly cited a “constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” during the interview with host Steve Harvey.

Submitters note: She is so stupid. She knows less than a sixth grader and thinks she should be president.

The House did not take a second shot at a proposal to change the burden of proof in “stand your ground” self-defense cases.

After his committee held its final scheduled meeting of the legislative session Thursday, Judiciary Chairman Charles McBurney said it was his decision not to bring up the proposal (SB 344), which was backed by Second Amendment groups.

On Jan. 5 President Barack Obama announced executive action to expand background checks for gun buyers.

His decision to close the so called “gun show loophole” is one of many legislative attempts to limit gun violence in the U.S.

Another possible solution: requiring liability insurance for gun owners.

Children under 14 would be able to use handguns with parental supervision in Iowa under a bill approved Tuesday by the Republican-majority House, as the chamber's lawmakers passed several measures to expand gun rights in the state.

The five bills now head to the Democratic-controlled Senate, where it's unclear if they will get enough support to advance.

So given the prominent, and ever increasing, presence of guns in the United States, Jacobs challenged the notion that gun violence causes the magnitude of harm that we typically assume. He claimed that in 2011 there were approximately 32,000 deaths caused by firearms. Of those, about 3% were accidents, 34% were homicides, and 60% were suicides. What these numbers tells us, Jacobs argued, is that the majority of firearm related deaths are self-inflicted, which automatically complicates any efforts to reduce the number of firearm-related deaths.

Why the long wait for a concealed-carry appointment in Greene County? My wife and I bought guns for self defense. We took the required class and now need to go through the sheriff's office to apply for our permits. To my astonishment, the first available appointment is July 15. They're making the driver's license office look good!

Focusing in on Hillary Clinton’s proposals, Grover illuminates her support of a 25 percent national sales tax on guns. Clinton was asked by then-Sen. Bill Bradley (D-N.J.) if she supported the imposition of a new, 25 percent national sales tax on guns. Clinton emphatically endorsed the tax, stating: "I am all for that."

A prominent dean at the University of Texas said Thursday he is leaving the state for another job in large part because of the new Texas law that will allow concealed handguns in public college classrooms.

Fritz Steiner, dean of the Texas School of Architecture, was named dean of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. Steiner, who had previously taught at Pennsylvania, has been at Texas since 2001 and said he would not have considered leaving if not for the new law that takes effect Aug. 1.
 

Gun Prohibition Fails Just Like Drug or Liquor Prohibition

A recent Gallup poll finds that “dissatisfaction with government”, not guns, or terrorism, tops the list of concerns: “guns/Gun control” was considered “the most important problem” by 2%.

The Constitution doesn’t and can’t grant “rights”: it recognizes them. Government never had any rights to grant to anyone. The state can’t stop people from getting what they want. Those who ignore existing laws will ignore additional ones. We’re told by ‘our representatives’ that a majority want more gun laws, but those ‘representatives’ ignore demonstrated majorities who want weed legalized, single payer health insurance and no overseas military adventures.

CA: After San Bernardino, concealed gun requests skyrocket

In the seven weeks since terrorists killed 14 people in San Bernardino, requests for concealed firearms permits have skyrocketed throughout the Inland Empire, leading to crippling backlogs and massive delays at the public safety agencies that process applications.

San Bernardino County reported a nine-fold increase in concealed weapons applications in the month that followed the Dec. 2 terror attacks, and the surge continues. In Riverside County, the permitting process is so backlogged that it now takes a year-and-a-half to meet with an official to submit an application.
 

Thugs resorting to knives; proof that Clinton, anti-gunners need to shift focus

A wave of knife attacks in New York City reported yesterday by Fox News, and an incident involving a Metro Bus assault in King County provide all the evidence necessary to demonstrate that criminals will use whatever weapon is handy to harm other people, and gun control is not the panacea proponents think it is.

It may be time for Democrat front runner Hillary Rodham Clinton to back away from her war on gun rights as part of her White House campaign. In an interview with television personality Steve Harvey that aired yesterday, she couldn’t even get it straight about which right is enshrined in the Constitution, and which is merely mentioned in the Declaration of Independence.

Rep. Sherry Jones, D-Nashville, and Sen. Sara Kyle, D-Memphis, on Thursday stressed the importance of having the General Assembly adopt legislation that seeks to deter gun owners from leaving loaded weapons near children.

Their bill would make it a crime to "recklessly place, leave or store a firearm in a location that is in plain view and readily accessible to a child" under the age of 13.
 

WY: HB 86 would allow open, concealed carry in government meetings

Laramie and other Wyoming communities could see guns starting to appear at government meetings if the Wyoming Legislature passes a bill repealing gun-free zone policies in public meetings.

The Wyoming Repeal Gun Free Zones Act was passed by the House of Representatives and has been received for introduction by the Senate. Wearing or carrying concealed weapons is currently prohibited in any meeting of a governmental entity, including the Legislature or committee thereof. If passed, House Bill 86 would allow for weapons to be carried into meetings such as the Laramie City Council, Albany County Commission or legislative meetings.

Wyoming gun laws have received an increased amount of attention in recent years.
 

TX: Local churches weigh Texas gun laws

New Texas gun laws are giving Second Amendment advocates a little more freedom and as of Jan. 1, Texas residents in possession of a valid concealed gun license are allowed to openly carry their handgun.

While this law applies to many areas, churches are able to make their own decisions about whether their members and visitors can open carry and concealed carry while in the pew.

That has left local churches to decide whether handguns have a place in Sunday worship. They have also been reviewing their emergency policies for active shooter situations.

The Florida Senate approved changes to the state's controversial "stand your ground" law Thursday. The legislation still needs to be approved in the Florida House to become law.

The issue shifts the "burden of proof" in a pre-trial hearing from defendants to prosecutors. Changes to the law now require state attorneys to prove "by clear and convincing evidence" why a defendant could not claim "stand your ground" in self-defense.

In "stand your ground" cases, pre-trial hearings are held to figure out whether defendants should be immune from prosecution.

State lawmakers are moving to block the ability of Arizona voters to pass their own laws requiring background checks any time a gun is sold.

The legislation given preliminary House approval Thursday would have Arizona enter into an agreement with other states, with each prohibited from enacting any new regulations on the transfer of firearms beyond what already is in federal law.

And once Arizona entered into such a compact, it could withdraw only once every decade.

MI: Keep permit for concealed carry

Today, you need a permit to carry a concealed weapon in Michigan, and you need to take safety training to get that permit. If some legislators have their way, you’ll need neither. That would be a mistake.

Four Republican lawmakers this month introduced legislation that would add Michigan to the short list of states that would allow concealed carry without a permit.

The objective, in firearm enthusiast parlance, is “constitutional carry,” although there’s absolutely nothing in the Second Amendment that grants citizens the right to carry a concealed weapon.

OK, I’m looking for someone in the state Senate to man up and turn the college carry pistol-packing bill into a real Guns Everywhere bill. Allow firearms in the state Capitol.

While visiting the Capitol I’ve felt a certain void. Then it hit me, there are no civilian good guys with guns around to stop bad guys with guns.

The controversy surrounding firearms being allowed in hospitals rages on.

Those who believe that guns shouldn’t be allowed in a hospital, or anywhere else for that matter, continue to point to incidents in which the use of a weapon is controversial.

As Elizabeth Rosenthal points out in her recent article When the Hospital Fires the Bullet most hospitals are arming their security teams in one way or another, and in a few cases harm has come to a patient.
