"'Progressives' aren't content to just ban guns – there are still plenty of ideas that threaten their agenda. And while Facebook still permits advocacy 'as long as it doesn't lead to the sale of any weapons,' the way things are going, it’s not all that hard to imagine such groups labeled 'right wing extremists' and worse in the future."

"So these quacks and sharks are interested in reducing injuries and deaths? They ought to start with the Number One Cause, instead of escalating tensions between those demanding freedom be surrendered to a monopoly of violence and those who, if forced to choose between obedience or resistance, will not go gentle into that good night.

For those who want to carry a gun for protection, the thought of actually injuring or killing someone can be frightening. But an Indiana company now says they have a new way to protect yourself in a less-lethal way.

The device, called the ML 12, looks just like a handgun – but instead of bullets it uses kinetic energy rounds like beanbags. It is designed to inflict a significant amount of pain – possibly giving the victim time to get away from an attacker.

The premise behind the controversial bill would allow deadly force to be used when protecting yourself. If would also protect you from civil and criminal prosecution.

California’s sales ban on new semiautomatic handguns that don’t stamp identifying information on the cartridge when a bullet is fired was upheld by a federal judge.

The law doesn’t violate the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment because gun owners don’t have a right to specific types of firearms, U.S. District Judge Kimberly Mueller in Sacramento said in her ruling.

Attorney General Eric Holder, during his final weeks in office, plans to ask Congress to lower the standard of proof in federal civil rights cases, a change that would make the federal government “a better backstop” against discrimination in cases like the deaths of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin, according to NBC News and POLITICO.

“We do need to change the law. I do think the standard is too high,” Holder told NBC News Thursday. “There needs to be a change with regard to the standard of proof.”

Demand is hot right now for green-tipped bullets traditionally used in automatic rifles. The Obama administration is calling for a ban to protect police since the ammo can pierce bullet proof vests.

Should customers want to buy some, Guns on 41 owner Travis Brunson is making sure he's got 5.56 mm green-tipped bullets for semi-automatic rifles. Supply is dwindling and customers want more.

"We probably sold 2,000 rounds today, where normally we might sell 100, 200," explained Brunson.

Gun-rights advocates are up in arms over a new proposal by Barack Obama’s administration that aims to ban a popular “armor-piercing” bullet used in AR-15 semiautomatic rifles.

The US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) this month quietly unveiled a proposal that would ban the popular 5.56mm green tip rifle bullets, in a move that the bureau said would help protect police officers.

People could carry a concealed firearm without a permit or training under a bill approved by the Kansas Senate on Thursday.

Senate Bill 45, which passed 31-7, would make Kansas a "constitutional carry" state, grouping it with Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming. Montana requires no permit outside city limits.

Kansans still could get a permit if they wanted to carry a concealed gun legally in 36 other states.

San Luis Obispo County is changing the way it issues conceal-to-carry gun permits due to a recent ruling in a federal appeals case, and the county is already experiencing an uptick in applicants for the permits that allow a person to carry a registered firearm in public.

San Luis Obispo Undersheriff Tim Olivas said the new policy will not change who gets to carry weapons — those who applied and were not eligible for a permit before most likely will be denied again — but simply who makes the decision.

Calling Florida's 12 university presidents and 12 university police chiefs "experts" on guns and guns on campus is like calling kindergarten teachers experts on construction of high-rise office buildings.

Collective opposition from state universities doesn't make them right, it merely reveals their willingness to march in collective unison, while denying reality. It is the same tactic they used in trying to keep Senator John Thrasher from becoming President of FSU. They attacked an honorable statesman and scholar, because he didn't fit their ideal of a liberal college administrator – and now that he's one of them, you parade him around as one of those so-called experts.

On Friday morning, Becky Bieker — wearing jeans, a black T-shirt and a gun on her hip — officially went back to work.

Outside, in front of her strip-mall gun shop, TV trucks had been pulling up for the past hour or so, one after the other, filled with reporters and cameramen here to talk to Becky about her first day back on the job, about what it meant.

It had been almost two months since her last day of work, which had been a rather unremarkable Friday up until around 2 p.m., when four strangers entered She’s A Pistol, the business she owned with her husband, and her life changed forever.

One proxy for U.S. firearms demand is the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which posted an 8.4 percent year-over-year increase in activity in January. That figure was the second-highest January on record for the 16-year-old system and marked the fourth consecutive monthly increase of year-to-year growth in the FBI's numbers since September 2013.

A bill pushed by Everytown for Gun Sense, a Mike Bloomberg funded operation, has floundered against intense grassroots opposition in Vermont.

Vermont has some of the least infringements on second amendment rights in the country. Vermont always had constitutional carry, with no permit required, for its entire history. Vermont has always had one of the lowest crime rates in the country. From burlingtonfreepress.com, a Gannet company:

We started the session with a LOT of bills, the most MSSA has ever pushed in one session. That’s good and bad.

It’s good because, even given attrition, we’re more likely to come out the other end with a number of bills passed, and I’ve always thought it’s better to keep legislators debating and voting on pro-gun stuff, so they have less time and attention to think about anti-gun stuff.

Senators approved a bill Friday that could make West Virginia the sixth state to allow residents to carry a concealed firearm without a permit.

After reading aloud from the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, senators voted 32-2 for a bill (SB347) that allows people 18 and older to tote concealed guns.

“The bill eliminates the crime of carrying a concealed weapon in West Virginia,” said Sen. Charles Trump, R-Morgan.

The legislation next goes to the House of Delegates.

The Republican Party needs to prove it values rights like freedom of speech and the right to a speedy trial as much as it values gun rights, Rand Paul said Friday.

"We do a great job defending the Second Amendment, and everybody knows that," the Kentucky senator and potential presidential candidate said at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). "But we have to defend the whole Bill of Rights."

"To defend the Second amendment, you have to defend the Fourth Amendment," he continued. "You need the First Amendment to protect the Second Amendment... The Fifth, the Sixth -- we should have speedy trials in our country."

In his speech at CPAC Friday, National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO and Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre called the NRA “freedom’s safest place” and gave a pointed defense of his organization, the right to keep and bear arms, and rights in general, saying, “They are all linked.”

His point that “to defend the Second Amendment, we need to preserve the First Amendment and the right to privacy” was well received and met with broad applause. There’s no question about it: CPAC is both a gun and NRA-friendly place.

President Barack Obama’s administration has proposed banning the manufacture and sale of one of the most popular bullets used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, a move that has enraged gun rights advocates and caused a run on the ammunition at gun shops across the country.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month said it planned to restrict the armor-piercing 5.56 mm “M855 green tip” rifle bullet because of new handguns that use the ammunition and pose a greater threat to the police. Previously the millions of inexpensive green-tip bullets sold each year were only for rifles typically used by target shooters and hunters.

State legislators will consider a bill that would allow Mainers to carry a concealed weapon without a permit.

Under the present law, it is illegal for gun owners to wear a jacket over their weapon unless they have a special permit.

Sen. Eric Brakey, R-Auburn has submitted a bill that he said he would restore Second Amendment rights.
