American Muslims contemplate taking up arms in self-defense

After a minute of carnage, Hassan had seen enough. He jumped into action, posting statements to Facebook and Instagram in order to provide a counter-narrative to the killer’s hateful screed that was circulating online.

His message: that fellow Muslims should not let these events make them feel ashamed about their faith. He’d seen how many Muslims, after events like this, tend to hide their beliefs out of fear. But Hassan believes it’s important for Muslims to be proud of their religion and heritage, especially in times of tragedy. Alongside that message was another: that every mosque should develop a security plan, and central to that plan would be a small team packing firearms.
 

Spain: Spain's far-right party pushes for looser gun laws

The leader of Spain's far-right Vox party has said it should be much easier for law-abiding Spaniards to own firearms for self-defense, and use them for that purpose without legal consequences. In an interview published Wednesday by a website specializing in weapons, Santiago Abascal said that "the concept of legitimate defense needs to be widened" in Spain.

Abascal is Vox's candidate in the upcoming general election on April 28. He has bragged in the past about carrying a handgun himself because his family was for years a target of the Basque militant group ETA.

It’s for this reason it’s understandable that they would react very forcefully and rapidly by pushing through laws that would take it from one of the most gun-friendly nations in the world to being more aligned with the European model. Conservatives in America may not agree with it. We may dread any notion of duplicating their measures here. But we have to be understanding. This wasn’t just shocking for them. It was as close as they’ve had to a 9/11 moment. We all know the reduction of freedoms we’ve been trying to get back ever since our big terrorist event.
 

KY: Welcome to Tombstone (aka Kentucky) where the right to bear arms is truly unlimited

The Kentucky General Assembly, in its infinite wisdom, decided during its historically terrible session this year to let every Tom, Dick, and Larry carry a sidearm wherever they might happen to be, leading to speculation that perhaps it would be wise to change the name of the Commonwealth of Kentucky to Tombstone.

Previously, Kentucky law required an individual to obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon and undergo some form of training so they could at least tell one end of a gun from another. That is no longer necessary. Now, if an individual is at least 21 years of age and doesn’t have a criminal record, he or she can mutate into Annie Oakley.

The Connecticut Supreme Court’s Thursday ruling allowing victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre to sue gun manufacturer Bushmaster Firearms left Second Amendment groups bewildered.

The 4-3 decision found that the plaintiffs—the families of nine victims—can sue Bushmaster under state unfair trade practices law, despite a federal statute that protects the gun industry from most lawsuits.
 

PA: Pittsburgh City Council proposes ban on ‘use’ of assault weapons, adds amendments to bill

Existing state law prohibits municipalities from regulating firearms, and gun advocates have vowed to sue the city if the bills pass.

“They certainly are trying to tap dance around the reality that what they’re doing is illegal,” said Kim Stolfer, president of the group Firearms Owners Against Crime. “The right to bear arms and the preemption law are inseparably intertwined, and the city, no matter how hard they try, cannot take any action in this field of law. What they’re doing is a deprivation of rights.”

A new Act has been proposed that would allow North Carolina teachers to carry guns in schools. Some state lawmakers think that there is a chance of it being approved this year. The School Security Act of 2019 was filed, and would boost the salaries of teachers who went through specialized police training to carry firearms on public school campuses.

A scandal is developing in Alaska, as the head of the Human Rights Commission (HRC) has been implicated in directly chilling the exercise of the First and Second Amendments of the Constitution. Governor Dunleavy has ordered an investigation of the scandal.

The head of the HRC, Marti Buscaglia, became upset over a bumper sticker on a contractor's work truck. The bumper sticker showed the silhouette of an AR15 type rifle, along with the words “Black Rifles Matter.” It is a pretty standard call to support the Second Amendment. Brenton Linegar owns Sage Mechanical, the small plumbing and air conditioning company that owns the truck. Sage Mechanical's client is the owner of the building where the truck was parked.

Legislation that would expand Indiana’s “Stand Your Law” to cover civil lawsuits would lead to more deaths of Hoosiers, opponents of the proposed bill told a Senate committee Wednesday.

House Bill 1284 passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee 7-3 over the objections of Sens. Greg Taylor, D-Indianapolis, Lonnie Randolph, D-East Chicago, and Timothy Lanane, D-Anderson.

“You don’t think a bill like this will be an open market when it comes to African Americans to shoot first and ask questions later?” said Randolph.

HB 1248, authored by Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, would provide civil immunity for a justifiable use of force in self-defense or in the defense of others.

The California Legislature’s ongoing war against the Bill of Rights ramped up February 22 as state Assembly members Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) and Tasha Boerner Horvath (D-Encinitas) introduced Assembly Bill 893, a measure that would permanently ban the sale of guns and ammunition at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

The 22nd District Agricultural Association board faces a lawsuit from the Crossroads of the West gun show because the moratorium the board placed on the show’s operation at the fairgrounds violates the First Amendment rights to free speech and assembly as well as the rights of equal protection and due process.

Supporters of a bill expanding Indiana’s Stand Your Ground law insist it won’t encourage vigilante justice.

The state’s Stand Your Ground law offers people immunity from criminal charges if they use reasonable force to defend themselves, their property, or another person. Proposed legislation would create that immunity in civil court, too. And Second Amendment attorney Guy Relford argues that’s all the bill does.

One of the New Mexico counties that declared itself a "second amendment sanctuary" has changed its mind.

Taos County Commissioners voted Tuesday night to repeal their resolution from earlier this month.

Taos was one of 26 New Mexico counties voting to oppose stricter gun-control laws during this year's legislative session, calling them unconstitutional and unenforceable.

Commissioner Gabriel Romero initially voted for the resolution, but says after careful consideration he didn't feel right about his vote, so he introduced the repeal.

Colorado's attorney general testified last week that county sheriffs vowing not to enforce the state's proposed anti-gun "red flag" bill should "resign" -- a challenge that threatened to ramp up tensions between state officials and local leaders who were already creating droves of so-called Second Amendment "sanctuary counties" to resist the legislation.
 

2nd Amendment Foundation: Gun Control Efforts Misguided After New Zealand Attack

Proponents of gun control are misguided in their attempt to renew restrictions on U.S. firearms in the wake of last week's terror attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, where a gunman killed 50 worshipers in two mosques – so says Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, USA Today reports.

In an opinion piece Tuesday, Gottlieb argues gun control proponents hope American citizens "gripped by emotion, will overlook the obvious and agree that law-abiding gun owners should face additional restrictions on their rights."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Americans who value freedom had better be more concerned about the gun control crowd than the criminals. The criminals want your money. The Neo-Totalitarians want your freedom. — Charlie Reese
