Post Comments | Read Comments

 
Gun control is predicated on the belief that private citizens cannot be trusted with firearms. That the state should have a "monopoly on violence" because it is less violent than individuals. And that firearms should be taken away from private citizens because only the state is responsible enough to handle them.

John acted in self-defense by shooting Wesley Willow. The state’s attorneys also asked the Wyoming Supreme Court to determine whether courts are legally entitled to dismiss cases on the basis of the law’s immunity provision and, if so, by what procedure and standard.

We’re proud to call Oregon our home. We appreciate that Oregonians don’t quite follow the same footsteps as others. That’s why the firearms we make at Radian Weapons aren’t ordinary. They’re the very best we can make from Oregon, by Oregonians. Imagine our surprise when we learn our lawmakers in Salem are following other states in considering legislation to ban entire classes of rifles and ammunition magazines. We’re told this will reduce the criminal misuse of guns. We have a different view.

Willie said she wasn't surprised by Harvey's actions because he'd had suicidal thoughts and access to guns. The new bill would aim to prevent these incidents.

The vote comes in the wake of a rash of school shootings across the country, including the massacre in Parkland, Florida.

I urge you to vote in favor of the proposal," said William Krause, vice president of the Pennridge School Board.
