That’s all you’ll read about Kennedy, 23, because in a city that typically tallies more than 300 murders and more than 1,000 nonfatal shootings a year, his case quickly disappeared from the news cycle.

So when the case reached its conclusion this month, there were no headlines for what turned out to be a rarity in the criminal justice system: an admitted gunman in a quadruple shooting acquitted by a jury of all charges.

Kennedy’s weeklong trial at the Criminal Justice Center, which ended March 15, focused not on Stand Your Ground or the Castle Doctrine, but instead on old-fashioned self-defense, his lawyer said.

The Los Angeles Police Department has moved to cancel most of the few remaining concealed weapons permits in civilian hands, according to new filings in a decades-old legal case.

Chief Michel Moore said in a sworn declaration he did not believe a group of people who obtained so-called CCWs as the result of a 1994 lawsuit were still entitled to the permits, because it was unlikely the individuals still faced extraordinary physical danger to their lives.

One local gun shop is taking aim and setting their sights on keeping women safe.

Only one in five women report owning a gun while over 60 percent of men own guns, but one local gun shop is looking to turn the tides on these statistics by getting women into firearms. Gunho Indoor Shooting Range Owner Roger Caplinger said, “Hey, we are all about empowering women and this just gives them one more tool to be independent. I have all daughters and I want my daughters to be independent and I want them to be able to handle things on their own and what better way than to learn how to shoot and defend yourself.”
 

Countering the “Civil Society” Argument Against Semiauto Firearms

One of the more recent arguments being used against modern multi-purpose semi-automatic rifles (and shotguns, for that matter) is that they have no place in “civil society.” It’s a far cry from their earlier justifications for the arbitrary bans on these semi-automatic firearms.

One big reason is that they have found that facts about crime didn’t help their flimsy case for these bans. One look at Justice Department crime stats shows why. Over the last five years, rifles and shotguns of all types were used for fewer murders than hands, fists, and feet (what the Justice Department calls “personal weapons”). In short, if you’re looking for murder weapons, rifles and shotguns aren’t them.

RESTRICTING EXACTLY WHO has access to guns may be the most effective way to curb firearm deaths in America – even more so than limiting the types of guns available or when they may be used, according to new research published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is set to oppose the Democrats’ legislation to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which expired in February.

The bill’s red flag provisions, which seek to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, has drawn significant attention from the NRA. The group opposes provisions that could lead to firearm confiscations over misdemeanor domestic violence or stalking convictions.
 

PA: Pennsylvania Democrats Want To Register Your Guns

Democrats want to register your guns. It isn’t just something that universal background checks will eventually lead to. There is a push even in a “gun friendly” state such as Pennsylvania, where only antiques and guns owned by law enforcement would be exempt. Democrats in the state legislature and Governor Tom Wolf strongly support the bill.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
