A bill introduced in the Michigan legislature aims to keep guns out of terrorists' hands.

A Michigan lawmaker opposing the legislation says it won't keep terrorists away from firearms, but could restrict rights of law-abiding citizens.

Michigan Representative Robert Wittenberg, D-Oak Park, and House Democratic Floor Leader Sam Singh, D-East Lansing, on March 9, introduced House Bill 5443, to prohibit the sale to and possession of firearms by people on the federal Terrorist Watchlist.

"It is a huge threat to public safety when we allow those who are affiliated with terrorist activities to legally stockpile and own firearms," Wittenberg said.

Yesterday’s fatal shooting of a dangerous escaped criminal suspect by a man and wife he had taken hostage in their own home in Mississippi illustrates the value of having a gun for protection, according to a the head of a national gun rights group who coincidentally co-authored a book about armed self-defense.

The story of how a couple and their 5-year-old son were taken captive by escaped murder suspect Rafael McCloud even made it to the pages of yesterday’s Seattle Times. The incident would make for a gripping book, one police source in Vicksburg told Examiner this morning.

It’s not hard to understand that if you’re attacked, or someone breaks into your home while you’re watching TV, dialing 911 isn’t the best way to defend yourself and loved ones.

To bolster your self-defense, you could remind your attackers that President Barack Obama says they shouldn’t have guns, and if he finds out that they do, they’ll be in big trouble. He might ban them from flying on airliners. That probably won’t be any more persuasive than asking them to wait while you call a cop. Thugs bold enough to attack you or kick in the door to your home aren’t going to freeze while you dial your phone.

The Second Amendment Foundation and three gun owners appealed to the D.C. Circuit after a federal judge upheld regulations that say would-be handgun owners need a "good reason" if they want to obtain a conceal-carry license.

The District of Columbia adopted the rule in an attempt to salvage its outright ban on handguns, which the U.S. Supreme Court struck down in the 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller.

Not only did Kagan and Sotomayor turn into mindless puppets for Obama's agenda. In the McDonald case, which didn't deal with the question of whether the Second Amendment was an individual right, Sotomayor, Ginsburg, and Breyer were so "chomping at the bit" in their hatred of firearms that they gratuitously opined, in their dissent, that the Heller case should be reversed.

In other words, the one "job qualification" that every Obama Supreme Court nominee has passed is the requirement that they be pathological liars.

An Idaho bill to allow concealed carry without a permit is gaining momentum and setting up a metaphorical gunfight between law enforcement groups and officials.

The proposal has gained support from some gun and law enforcement groups, but is raising the eyebrows of some local law enforcement officials, including Coeur d'Alene Police Chief Lee White and Kootenai County Sheriff Ben Wolfinger.

"Constitutional carry is a legal issue for law enforcement, and the issue is presumptive," White told The Press this week.

Gawrys said Sargent's Second Amendment policies could have been used to prepare for events like the one in Chattanooga.

"However, Sargent has been too busy siding the with the Obama administration, disarming innocent Tennesseans," Gawrys said. "Had he been a real leader and believed in the Second Amendment, rather than siding with Obama and Clinton, all Tennesseans could have been better prepared to prevent events like the Chattanooga terror attack."

Last week the legislature overturned Governor Tomblin's veto on eliminating concealed carry permits for those 21 and older. Friday, guns were brought up again. This time, to discuss a bill that would let you carry a gun concealed in state parks and rail trails. Some local officials told 5 News they're concerned, because counties and municipalities won't have any say.

"We are the ones, or the county commission are the ones, who make the rules and regulations and allocate funding for the running of those parks and recreation areas. And then, you have a state house and senate that might say, 'You have no oversight on this property. If we say people can do this, you can't say they can't.'

Open Carry Texas plans to do just that. It will be the third year they bring their guns to SXSW — except this year, they can carry holstered handguns.

Next week, we have an opportunity to stop the gun violence epidemic gripping our community by nominating for president the person best suited to tackle this crisis. And for me, that person is Hillary Clinton.

When it comes to ending gun violence, Hillary is not a fairweather friend. She has devoted decades to promoting common sense gun reforms. She believes in strengthening background checks and closing loopholes that allow criminals access to guns. She believes in preventing dangerous people from having access to guns and in holding irresponsible gun dealers accountable when their firearms end up in the wrong hands.

The United States has some of the most lenient gun ownership laws in the world. It also boasts one of the highest gun-related death rates of any country. Researchers from Boston University say the U.S. can cut those deaths by more than 80 percent by enacting three specific laws on a federal basis. These rules would require background checks for all ammunition and gun purchases as well as ballistic imprinting or microstamping of firearms so they leave identifiable traces when fired.

Billionaire gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, Everytown for Gun Safety, continues to attack House Bill 786 — an NRA-backed, pro-self-defense bill that overwhelmingly passed the Mississippi House and will be considered in the coming weeks by the State Senate.

Knowing that he can’t make his case against the measure personally in Mississippi, he is using pro-gun control surrogates from the Mississippi Police Chiefs Association and the legal community to do it for him — and taking the opportunity to simultaneously promote far-reaching restrictions on your rights.

Friday's final passage of a bill in Georgia that will allow anyone 21 or older with a carry license to carry their sidearms on campus is being applauded by the Second Amendment Foundation as one more step forward for the right to keep and bear arms.

SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb noted, "Just because someone steps onto the campus of a college or university does not mean they leave their constitutional rights at the property line."

Under provisions of the bill, HB 859, the firearm must remain concealed, and guns are still not allowed inside fraternity and sorority houses, dormitories or at athletic events, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The bill goes to Gov. Nathan Deal for signing.

Testimony on the bills lasted hours into the evening, long beyond typical committee hearings in the General Assembly.
