A controversial bill that would allow school staff members to carry concealed weapons on school property is moving forward in the Idaho Statehouse.

The House State Affairs Committee on Tuesday voted 11-2 along party lines to approve the measure.

If it becomes law, the bill would allow school district employees to carry a gun while working, so long as they obtain an enhanced concealed carry license. The gun would always have to remain on the employee and could not be put in a drawer or safe.

March is Women’s History Month, yet Congress appears ready to celebrate in the worst way possible by creating more barriers for women who seek to exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

While COVID-19-related bills have taken up much of the national spotlight, several gun control bills are primed for passage this week in the House. This is hardly surprising, given that just last month, President Joe Biden called on Congress to enact a plethora of new federal gun legislation.

A Jones County man who claimed self-defense after shooting his wife five times was found not guilty of manslaughter. The jury deliberated for a little more than an hour-and-a-half before reaching the verdict that acquitted 45-year-old Whitney Kitchens for the shooting death of 43-year-old Erin Galaher in February 2018.

Jurors heard testimony that Galaher had a .22-caliber pistol and threatened to shoot Kitchens after he confronted her about having drugs in their house. Jurors also saw evidence that she had methamphetamine and other drugs in her system at the time of the shooting in their house on Oak Bowery Road.

The Fourth Circuit heard arguments on Wednesday over whether officers had reasonable suspicion to briefly detain a man for openly carrying an AR-15 rifle in West Virginia.

In February 2018, Michael Walker, 24, was stopped by two Putnam County Sheriff’s deputies while strolling down Route 33 in West Virginia with an uncased AR-15-style rifle strapped to his back.

Corporal Brian Donohoe and Deputy Brandon Pauley, listed as defendants in Walker’s lawsuit over the stop, had responded to a 911 call from a concerned citizen who reported Walker for open carrying the semi-automatic rifle in a residential area within a mile of a school.
 

NY: NRA Files Reply Brief Urging Supreme Court to Take Concealed Carry Case

Today the NRA-ILA and the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association filed a reply brief asking the Supreme Court to hear a case challenging New York’s restrictive concealed-carry-licensing regime.

This case challenges New York’s requirement for applicants to demonstrate “proper cause” to carry a firearm. New York regularly uses this requirement to deny applicants. New York’s practice is unconstitutional because the Second Amendment “guarantees rights to ‘keep and bear arms’ to all ‘the people,’” the brief argues, not just to the select few that the state deems worthy.

You’re startled awake by a crashing sound. You feel the house shudder even though you’re in bed. It is three in the morning. You’re a 27 year old woman. Your female housemate is 26 years old. You yell to her and ask her if she is OK. You both look outside your bedrooms and see a man inside your home. Both of you shout for him to leave. You move toward him. He pushes you and then hits you. You run back to your bedroom to get your handgun. When you return, your attacker is fighting with your roommate. You shoot your attacker in the leg. Now he stops fighting. Your roommate calls 911 while you stand there holding your gun.

A bill passed by Kansas House members last week would lower the legal age to carry concealed firearms from 21 to 18.

House Bill 2058 would require an eight-hour safety and training course for concealed carriers ages 18-20. Currently, 18-year-old Kansans can carry a gun openly but it cannot be concealed.

In the wake of the Jan. 6 assault on the United States Capitol and some members of Congress carrying firearms near the House floor, Democratic lawmakers are proposing a ban on guns in Congress.

"I've been pushing for years to change this outdated rule, knowing there was an inevitable risk in allowing members to carry guns in the Capitol," Rep. Jared Huffman, D-California, the primary sponsor of the ban, said in a statement. "While we'd like to think we could rely on common decency, we now have colleagues who are QAnon and white supremacist sympathizers, incite violence and insurrection, and have even bragged about bringing guns into the House chamber."

Merrick Garland was confirmed as the U.S. attorney general on Wednesday by a 70-30 vote.

America’s 1st Freedom has reported extensively on Garland’s disbelief that the Second Amendment protects an individual right. He has already said that there is more “room” for gun control in President Joe Biden’s plans. His track record in Second Amendment cases runs counter to American freedom and any honest reading of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Bill of Rights.

Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy will introduce a bill Wednesday that prohibits the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) from sending information to the DOJ about veterans with a service-connected disability seeking to purchase a firearm.

The “Defending Veterans Second Amendment Rights Act” stops the Secretary of Veteran Affairs, Denis McDonough, from transmitting information about VA beneficiaries to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), solely because that person has a service-connected disability, according to a copy of the bill obtained by the Daily Caller.

.356 TSW: A Comeback Kid?

It wasn’t that long ago that Smith & Wesson and Federal Cartridge Company introduced a new 9 mm cartridge. It was 1993, and the new cartridge was the .356 TSW (Team Smith & Wesson, sometimes abbreviated as .356 TS&W). It was made for IPSC and USPSA shooters as a major power factor round for Limited division competition. Rated to launch a 147-grain bullet to 1,240 f.p.s. from a 5-inch barrel, .356 TSW would produce a 182-power factor.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both. — William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)
