One armed congregant pursued the gunmen who opened fire during Friday prayer at his mosque in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, firing two shots at them as they sped away, the New Zealand Herald reported.

The unnamed man went home to retrieve his gun when the shooting broke out before returning to the Linwood mosque to engage the shooter. He reportedly told the police he was acting in “self defense.”

At least 49 people were killed and 48 injured during shootings at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch. The Linwood mosque shooting claimed seven lives while a second shooting, at the Al Noor mosque, resulted in 41 dead.

Try as we might, we can’t recall the last time somebody made the papers for being convicted of, and sent to prison for, shooting somebody in self-defense. Oh sure, self-defense shootings happen. But to be convicted of a crime afterward? Such as murder or manslaughter? How many prosecutors would even take such a case to trial?

The driver whose bullet killed Brandy Brock isn’t being charged because it was Holder, the driver of her car, who fired first, and Indiana’s self-defense law is very strong. A person who “reasonably believes” the use of unlawful force is imminent is not required to retreat and is justified in using reasonable force.

Brock’s mother thinks that is small comfort for the grief she is feeling.

Buser’s report said Organ fired six times. Three bullet holes were found in the body and hood of the SUV. One shot hit Rightsell in the face. Police handcuffed Rightsell, who still had the .380 Walther he was permitted to carry in his holster, after forcing him to walk to them on his knees. He died a little more than two hours after he was shot, as he was being treated at Franciscan Health Crawfordsville. In the emergency room, Rightsell told a nurse who’d asked what he’d done, “I don’t know. He just walked up and started shooting.”
 

AZ: This Bill Would Allow Adults To Have Loaded Weapons In Their Vehicles On School Campuses

A measure that’s moving through the Arizona Legislature is being billed as a way for parents to defend themselves from school shooters while dropping their kids off, but it would also allow students who are at least 18 years old to keep a loaded weapon in their vehicle.

Republicans say the bill is about self defense. Republican Rep. Warren Peterson crafted the bill with the help of the National Rifle Association. He argued that criminals don’t care about the law and parents should be able to defend themselves. Judith Simons is a retired school teacher. She opposes the measure.
 

AZ: Senate panel approves bill to allow loaded firearms on campus

It’s billed by proponents as a way moms can defend themselves from attackers while dropping their children off at school. But legislation that cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday on a 4-3 party-line vote also would permit high schoolers who are at least 18 to bring and keep loaded weapons in their vehicles. And that alarmed some foes of HB 2693 who said it creates the opportunity for what starts out as a spat among students to quickly escalate if one goes out to the parking lot to retrieve the weapon.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Friday afternoon that “our gun laws will change” after the mass shooting in Christchurch, by far the most deadly mass shooting in the country’s history.

According to Ardern, who spoke to reporters at a press conference Friday (Saturday morning local time), the suspect had a gun license from 2017 and used two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns, and a lever-action firearm in the shooting.

Our Father, Our Firearms: Is there a Christian approach to gun ownership?

As gun violence continues to shed blood and take lives in the pews of America’s churches, the American divide over the perceived rights and morality of gun ownership plays out between churches and within congregations just as it does between families and within congressional halls.

In the faith, some Christians own guns. Some Christians hate guns. And, some Christians sell guns.
 

Connecticut Supreme Court allows Sandy Hook shooting victims’ families to proceed in firearms industry lawsuit

In a 4-3 decision, the Connecticut Supreme Court on Thursday reversed a lower court decision to dismiss a lawsuit brought by the families of victims from the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school shooting to sue firearms manufacturers.

The plaintiffs allege that gun manufacturer Remington marketed its Bushmaster AR-15-style weapon for illegal and offensive purposes that violated the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA). Finding that firearms advertising fell under the state statute would allow for a workaround of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which currently limits a citizen’s ability to sue gun manufacturers and sellers.

Is Elko County “above the law”?

Perhaps no issue divides rural and urban Nevada – and the rest of rural and urban America – as much as gun rights and gun laws. In general, city folk believe stricter gun laws will make it harder for criminals to get weapons and commit crimes. Law-abiding rural folk see such laws as a threat to their own ability to keep and bear arms for hunting, self-defense and other legitimate purposes.

Police said a man in his 20s had been charged with murder. A 28-year-old Australian man calling himself Brenton Tarrant through a disturbing manifesto he is believed to have posted online, reported The Guardian.

“I chose firearms for the affect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the effect it could have on the politics of United States and thereby the political situation of the world,” the manifesto states according to The Guardian.

On guns, lawmakers approved a bill that strengthens the state’s “stand your ground” law by saying that people do not have a duty to retreat if firing in self-defense.

But a gun-control proposal allowing police to temporarily confiscate guns of those deemed to be a threat, known as a red-flag law, died without a hearing.

A sparsely populated mountain county in North Carolina has declared itself a “gun sanctuary county” and intends to defy attempts by federal or state government to enforce strict gun control measures.

Cherokee County passed the three-page resolution with a slim 3-2 vote, after resolution author Dan Eichenbaum told fellow commissioners that the “first thing dictators do is confiscate guns,” reported the Cherokee Scout.
 

NM: New Mexico Turns to People to Overturn Anti-Second Amendment Law

New Mexico Second Amendment supporters are doing more than passing Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions. The New Mexico Republicans are leading a movement to repeal the offending law using the power of the people.

New Mexico has a provision in its Constitution, rather similar to that in Switzerland. If the legislature passes a law offensive to the people, they can demand a referendum be held. If the law is not approved of in the referendum, the law is annulled.

The late Justice Antonin Scalia boxed in what is a reasonable restriction on the Second Amendment when he wrote the majority opinion for the Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008). “A constitutional guarantee subject to future judges’ assessments of its usefulness is no constitutional guarantee at all,” wrote Scalia in the decision that found the Second Amendment to indeed be an individual right. “Constitutional rights are enshrined with the scope they were understood to have when the people adopted them, whether or not future legislatures or (yes) even future judges think that scope too broad.”

On Thursday, March 14, Governor Phil Bryant (R) signed NRA-supported HB 1581 into law after it was passed unanimously in each chamber earlier this session.

House Bill 1581, sponsored by Representative Angela Cockerham (D-96), clarifies the meaning of “courtroom” and “courthouse” in the enhanced permit statute by limiting prohibited places to a prescribed list of areas such as the courtroom itself, the judge’s chamber and office, and witness and jury rooms. This clarification to existing statute became critically important as the right of enhanced permit holders to defend themselves in the public areas of courthouses was being slowly whittled away by judges and sheriffs who refused to recognize their rights under existing law.
 

MO: Proposed Missouri Law Would Force Every Adult Resident to Buy an AR-15

While Missouri politicians have long tried to outdo each other over pro-gun legislation, the latest bill may be impossible to top — a law mandating that every Missouri resident aged 18 to 35 purchase an AR-15-style rifle.

...

Introduced last month by state Representative Andrew McDaniel (R-Deering), the bill, titled the "McDaniel Militia Act," would create a state tax credit (capped at $1 million annually) to function as an incentive for residents not yet strapped with Big Government's preferred Big Gun — the AR-15. Purchasers could then claim the tax credit on up to 75 percent of the gun's cost.
