California DOJ asked how ‘smart gun’ without microstamping made ‘safe’ roster

"The inclusion of the Armatix handgun on the roster 'means that it should have microstamping, but it doesn't to my knowledge have that feature,' the industry source explained. 'So the question that needs to be asked is how did the gun get on the roster on October 24th of 2013? Could it be because it somehow follows the narrative that the AG's office is pushing?'”

The sight of a gun, whether it’s being carried legally or not has ignited a firestorm of debate inside the Grand Rapids City Chambers. The isn’t the first time the issue has been in the cross-hairs at a commission meeting.

The mayor has made his position clear. He sees a gun in commission chambers as a threatening gesture and has no plans of changing the ordinance. Others in the community stood by the mayor’s side.

They had an extra police officer on hand at the meeting for security reasons.

Submitters Note: And was the police officer unarmed or was he committing a "threatening gesture".

When Thomas White spotted a cougar approaching his teenage son outside their home in rural Washington state last week, there was only one thing to do - hand a gun to his 11-year-old daughter.
Without a moment's hesitation, Shelby White killed the female cougar, and wildlife officials suggested that the animal may have been sick.
The mountain cat was 4 years old and weighed about 50lbs, which is about half of what an animal that age should weigh. ...
The girl’s father, Thomas White, was home at the time, but Shelby was the only one in the family with a tag - a permit to legally kill a cougar.

A Ford dealership near Moorhead is hoping to entice customers with a unique give-a-way.
Buy a pickup. Get a shotgun.
Muscatell-Burns in Hawley is kicking off a two-week promotion that offers a shotgun for every new or 2013 pickup truck. Sales manager Jason Jalbert tells KFGO radio most of the dealership’s employees hunt and fish and it’s usually a topic of conversation with customers.
The dealership is working with a licensed gun dealer in Fargo, N.D., to complete the transactions. Anyone who wants a shotgun with his or her new truck must undergo the required background check.

Nancy Grace obtained exclusive photos of George Zimmerman‘s personal arsenal taken by police that she aired on her show Monday night while she went off on how Zimmerman can be allowed to have guns in his possession in the first place. Radio host Larry Elder told Grace, “It would shock me if George Zimmerman, probably one of the most hated men in America, did not have self-defense material.”
Grace was still incensed, insisting he is not being singled out, crying, “Not everybody in this country has gunned down an unarmed youth!” Elder insisted that he was found innocent, and shot back, “This is a free man, the Second Amendment applies to him!”
As they argued, photos of Zimmerman’s guns flashed across the screen, including the ones below.

Attorney General Kamala Harris moved Thursday to preserve California's restrictions on concealed-weapons permits, seeking a rehearing of a federal appeals court ruling that would allow law-abiding citizens throughout the state to carry handguns in public.

Harris, on behalf of the state, asked the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for permission to intervene in the case, involving a lawsuit against the San Diego County sheriff over gun permit restrictions that are imposed by most of the state's urban counties, including San Francisco. She also asked the full appeals court to order a new hearing before an 11-judge panel.

This week on Gun Talk Television, hosts Tom Gresham and Ryan Gresham address concealed carry.

While Tom offers tips on everything from why you should conceal carry to the legal issues of doing so, Ryan takes to the range with VATA Group’s Benny Griffin to shoot a variety of firearms that can be used for carrying, including Ruger’s LC380 and LCP, Springfield Armory’s XDm, Walther’s PPQ, and the Colt 45 1911. Springfield Armory’s Rob Leatham also discusses how and why one should train to shoot one-handed in self-defense situations.

Unfortunately, President Kustra’s remarks on Senate Bill 1254 are misguided and contain inaccurate information. To begin with, President Kustra claims that the bill would “remove” the ability of public colleges and universities in Idaho to prohibit weapons on their respective campuses, asserting that such authority is “currently held.”

The argument that Idaho’s public colleges and universities have existing authority to regulate firearms is

The Mississippi Delta Friends of the National Rife Association will host its second annual NRA banquet at the Warehouse in Cleveland Friday at 5:30 p.m.

The Mississippi Delta Friends of the National Rife Association officially began last year on Feb. 28.

In recent years, the talk of stricter gun laws has been a hot topic among politicians in congress and the NRA has been an organization that fully supports the second amendment of the United States Constitution, which protects the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms.

John Drake just wants to legally carry a gun to defend himself in New Jersey since he has been chased by robbers after refilling ATMs with thousands of dollars in cash. His application for a concealed carry permit was denied because the state does not consider self-defense a “justifiable need.”

Mr. Drake is taking his case all the way to the Supreme Court. If the high court decides to hear it, the ruling could change the laws related to the individual’s right to bear arms from coast to coast.
 

WA: Anti-gunners in poll minority; I-591 backers not contacted prior to endorsement

Anti-gunners who are voting today in the Portland Oregonian against the idea of legislators learning about firearms are getting the same negative reaction that a couple of PTSA groups in King County are getting on a popular gun rights forum after it was announced that they are supporting Initiative 594, an issue that has zero to do with education.

Neither of those groups contacted the Initiative 591 campaign, according to a source with Protect Our Gun Rights, the umbrella coalition of gun owners, competitive shooters, hunters and law enforcement professionals. The endorsements were apparently made without learning both sides of the issue. And these PTSA groups claim to promote education?
 

New report on old problem: Cops losing guns

A report in Tuesday’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about the number of guns lost by agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives gained traction when Fox News picked it up yesterday, and it is reminiscent of an embarrassing incident involving former Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske, now the Obama Administration’s drug czar, who lost his own gun to a car prowl several years ago.

When Kerlikowske, who supported gun control legislation in Olympia while in uniform years ago, lost a 9mm Glock from his department car parked on a downtown street, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms offered a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the thief.

If you’re a law-abiding gun owner, former Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli II would like to be your lawyer — for less than $10 a month.

Cuccinelli and three partners have launched Virginia Self Defense Law, a firm focused on defending Second Amendment rights. With bargain-basement pricing and a cheeky slogan — “Defending those who defend themselves” — the venture seeks to tap into a feeling among some gun owners that the right to bear arms is under attack.

On Feb. 23, 2014, the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office was contacted in reference to a shooting death occurring at a residence located at Abbits Branch Lane in Hubert, North Carolina. After reviewing the facts and circumstances of this case, after meeting with members of law enforcement and after considering the applicable law concerning self-defense and defense of habitation, commonly referred to as the Castle Doctrine, I have determined that the shooting death of Michael Holliday, although tragic for his family, is justified.
 

LA: Gun rights and politics

I read recently where Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., is in favor of registration of all guns and ammunition owned by private citizens. That vote of Landrieu’s is an attempt to appease other countries who are members of the United Nations and which the United States supports financially more than any other country.

Is it not the Second Amendment right of all Americans to own without infringement by any politician or without fear of prosecution a weapon they may feel is required to protect their home and family?

I do not care to own military-style weapons. At the same time, I realize to ban one is a slippery slope to banning all others.
 

WA: Gun initiatives set to duel in November

Initiative 594 would enact statewide criminal background checks for all firearm transactions. That’s indirect conflict with Initiative 591, which would prohibit passage of any law expanding background checks unless a national standard is created. I-591 also prohibits confiscations of guns without due process.

Both measures were given a public hearing in the Legislature, but it’s doubtful state lawmakers will take further action, said Rep. Laurie Jinkins (D-Tacoma), head of the house committee that heard testimony on the initiatives. Jinkins said it doesn’t make sense to waste time on measures that aren’t likely to pass.
 

CA: Surge in concealed weapon permits follows California court Second Amendment decision

Gun owners are flooding the sheriff's offices in two California counties with applications for concealed weapon permits following a bombshell ruling two weeks ago by a federal appeals court that citizens need not justify their requests.

Orange and Ventura counties have dropped the "good cause" standard for issuing conceal carry permits after the requirement was struck down Feb. 13 by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeal. A three-judge panel of the court ruled 2 to 1 that the Second Amendment bars California counties from requiring law-abiding gun owners who want to carry concealed firearms to demonstrate special, individualized needs for protection.

About 150 Idahoans braved rain and cold weather to gather at the steps of the Capitol building on Thursday, Feb. 27 to voice their opinion on Senate Bill (SB) 1254. If passed SB 1254 would give students the right, under certain conditions, to carry concealed weapons on college campuses across the state providing they have a valid concealed carry license.

The controversial bill has received resistance from students, parents, educators, law enforcement entities and school officials from all across Idaho as well as support from Second Amendment advocates, students and gun rights groups.

NRA News released its latest “Special Report” with Ginny Simone Wednesday, telling the story of 72-year-old Elaine, a grandmother and widow of a career military man — and an AR-15 aficionado.

What do Pop-Tarts and property insurance have in common?
For anyone who has been paying attention to the Florida Legislature recently, the answer is easy: Guns.

Bills dealing with toaster pastries and insurance policies are just two of more than a dozen gun-related measures lined up for the 2014 legislative session that starts Tuesday. As in previous years, many of them will go nowhere, especially if Marion Hammer, the National Rifle Association’s powerful Florida lobbyist, doesn’t like them.
 

The Lockean right of self-defense–and stand-your-ground laws

There is a dispute going on in the blogs over John Locke and self-defense. Firmin DeBrabander, an associate professor of philosophy at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, wrote about Locke at the New York Times Opinionator blog, attacking David French at NRO’s The Corner. DeBrabander also relies on Zach Beauchamp, who in turn relies on Ari Koren, a political theorist who teaches courses on the history of political thought at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Ultimately, I part company with both sides, but at least David French is discussing some of the relevant evidence and at least he understands that John Locke recognized a natural right of self-defense within societies with generally functioning courts.
