In addition to concealed-carry classes specific to Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia, the Robinsons work with clients from beginner to advanced, utilizing various tools and tactics as well as unarmed responses, while teaching situational awareness. Tools of the trade range from handguns and carbines to rifles and shotguns, as well as edged weapons. “We prepare you for real world scenarios, like an attack in a Walmart parking lot. What we do is teach folks tactics for home, work or the parking lot,” said Robinson, an Army veteran, former private contractor and law enforcement officer.
 

IA: GOP silence on guns is out of character

Gun rights advocates want weapons to be allowed at the Republican National Convention in Ohio this summer. By Monday night, nearly 50,000 people had signed an online petition advocating the open carry of firearms at the gathering. Political party officials have been in the awkward position of trying to decide how to respond. This is the party that loves their guns, after all. So Republican leaders likely breathed a sigh of relief this week when the Secret Service made the decision for them. Citing its legal authority to ban weapons at events attended by those it protects, the agency spokesperson said any unauthorized person with a gun will not be admitted.

As the National Rifle Association (NRA) smears Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland as a threat to the Second Amendment by misrepresenting his judicial record, one of the NRA's top constitutional litigators is heaping praise upon Garland and his judicial temperament.

A Panorama Village resident is claiming his second amendment right is being violated by the sign at the front door of City Hall.

The Attorney General's Office wrote a letter to the city in response to resident, David E. Myers, who made the complaint after City Council passed resolution No. 2016-520 on Jan. 26.

The resolution designated areas of City Hall as the premises of municipal court or offices utilized by the court and therefore prohibited all weapons.
 

MS: Mississippi Defies Feds in Brave Struggle to Bring Guns to Church

The Great State of Mississippi is offering an illustration of this principle as we speak with the march toward enactment of legislation to recognize a right of concealed-carry in churches. And the Republican salons, who are promoting the cause of honoring the Prince of Peace by insisting on the right to shoot and kill people right there in His sanctuary, are preemptively concerned that the godless socialists in Washington might interfere. So once again, they've gone back to that fine antebellum doctrine of nullification to deny the power of the Feds — or at least the executive branch — to regulate firearms at all.
 

MS: Mississippi Senate Passes Bill Allowing Churches to Arm Congregants

On March 29 the Mississippi Senate passed a bill that will allow each church to designate a certain number of congregants as armed guards for the defense of the congregation as a whole.

The measure–the Mississippi Church Protection Act (HB 786)–passed by a vote of 36-14.

...

The Mississippi Church Protection Act also contains a provision barring the enforcement of any federal firearm law that violates Mississippi’s constitutional protections of the right to keep and bear arms. And it expands the ability to carry a handgun without a permit from simply carrying in a purse or bag to carrying a holstered firearm.

Gun supporters turned out en masse this week urging Haywood County commissioners to allow concealed guns on county property, from the historic courthouse to youth sports fields.

A packed house of nearly 250 people turned out for a public hearing on the issue Monday night, with the vast majority demanding a longstanding ban against weapons on county property be lifted. They argued the ban should not apply to those with lawful conceal carry permits.

According to WTOC, Lam Blake says he “woke up to two people breaking into his home, saying they were police.” But when he saw the two suspects on his surveillance camera “He knew they were not officers,” so he retrieved his gun and waited.

Blake said, “I immediately grabbed my 9 mil Smith and Wesson M&P, loaded it up, and waited for them to come all the way in.” When the two suspects made it into the trailer they allegedly fired at Blake first, then he fired back. Although no one was hit, the return fire caused the suspects to flee.

Brooks, formerly of Mulberry and now of Lakeland, waited 18 months to learn that the state attorney's office agreed that he was within the bounds of Florida's Stand Your Ground law. Brian Haas, spokesman for the state attorney's office, said a year and a half was not an extraordinary amount of time for investigators to get to the bottom of things in such a case. But then, he wasn't the one facing charges, and potential prison time.

Michelle Pickett received her concealed carry license about six years ago. Because she didn’t grow up around guns, she said she was very skittish when she started shooting.

So Pickett took several classes before applying for her permit.

“I think everyone should be able to protect themselves,” said Pickett, an instructor at Harry Beckwith Gun and Range and The Well Armed Women. “What is the difference to be able to protect yourself going to Publix or the mall? It doesn’t matter where you carry. The place doesn’t matter. It’s the training. Criminals aren’t going to obey the law.”

Thousands of us use a gun for self-defense every day. Self-defense doesn't happen the way Hollywood shows us. Protecting your family isn't magic. In fact, the people who study and train do a better job. I report on civilian self-defense, and here is what I noticed. Here is the messy reality.

But Americans have the ability to do something that, frankly, many Europeans wish they could. Places where generations of politicians have denied their people both the means and the right to armed self-defense.

But in America we need not limit our reaction to a social media status update. Unlike other parts of the world, the right to legitimate armed self-defense is not denied to Americans. Je suis un citoyen armé. Simply translated, “I am an armed citizen.”

The U.S District Court for the Mariana Islands struck down the nation’s last handgun ban, ruling that permanent residents of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. “The Second Amendment, as well as the Due Process Clause and Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, are the law of the land in the CNMI as if it were a state,” wrote Chief Judge Ramona Manglona. “The Second Amendment, made applicable against the states through the Fourteenth Amendment, protects the fundamental right of armed self-defense, and prohibits any state from completely banning handguns.”

His anti-gun front groups are already spending millions of dollars across the state in an effort to restrict our rights, which is why we have to act now!
 

SC: Senator shuts door on more gun hearings this year

Three gun bills approved by a Senate panel last week will be the only gun bills receiving a hearing this year in the Senate, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee says.

The news is a blow to advocates of other legislation, including bills to expand the waiting period for background checks prior to gun sales, proposed following the murders of nine people at a Charleston church last June.

Sen. Larry Martin, a Pickens Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told The Greenville News he personally does not support the expanded waiting period bills or other gun-control measures such as gun registration or a ban on assault weapons, so he will not allow them a hearing.
