Alaska trapshooters Steven Brown and Grayson Davey are headed to a pair of big international competitions after collecting medals at USA Shooting’s Spring Selection Match in Tucson, Arizona.

Brown captured the gold medal in the junior boys competition and Davey claimed two medals — bronze in junior boys, and bronze in the open competition for mixed teams, where he was paired with Julia Stallings of Rossville, Tennessee.

By finishing in the top three in the junior boys competition, Brown and Davey qualified for two big upcoming meets — the ISSF World Shotgun Championships in Lonato, Italy, where the best in the world will congregate, and the Junior World Championships in Suhl, Germany.

Prosecutors have dropped charges against two men in a South Carolina death more than two years ago, saying there is not enough evidence and there are inconsistent stories from the only eyewitness.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported prosecutors in Charleston this week dropped charges against 37-year-old Davon Laval Heyward and 37-year-old Dandre Levon Middleton.

...

Prosecutors say the survivor's statement against the men were "inconsistent and implausible." Prosecutors also said they could not disprove self-defense claims.

Debate on gun legislation reached a crescendo at the Arkansas State Capitol on Wednesday when a senator fervently denounced a bill that would make it easier to use lethal force in the name of self-defense.

The bill, sponsored by three Republican state senators, would remove a clause from the current law that required a “duty to retreat” in self-defense cases. Previous efforts to push similar “stand your ground” laws in the state, under both Democratic and Republican legislatures, have all failed within the past decade, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports.

At the Osseo Gun Club, Kirk Kjellberg has set his sights on a pistol that hides in plain sight.

"To bring something all the way from what's in your mind to the sales floor or out to people has been a dream of mine since I can remember,” said Kjellberg. “So to fulfill that is fantastic for me."

Kjellberg says he came up with the idea for a cell phone pistol back in 2016 as a more discreet way for law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed weapon.

The number of people who hold handgun carry permits grew across the state and in every south-central Minnesota county again last year.

More people applied for a new permit or to renew their permit in 2018 than in 2017 and 2015, but not as many as the peak of 2016.

A bill that strengthens Utah's current code for self-defense passed the Senate today with a 18-8 vote.

"Mr. Sullivan instigated a physical altercation in an attempt to take the driver’s handgun from where she had it secured on her person."

One shot went off from the handgun, killing Sullivan.

Some North Carolina lawmakers want to arm teachers to protect students, and they're willing to pay them more to do so.

The School Security Act of 2019, filed Wednesday, would boost salaries of teachers who decide to carry a gun. The bill would require teachers to undergo training.

The same bill was filed in the Senate last year and died in committee.

February has produced even more evidence that the fundamental right to keep and bear arms is not an anachronism that no longer deserves constitutional protection, but a vital tool safeguarding individual liberty.

Studies routinely indicate that every year, Americans use their firearms in defense of themselves or others between 500,000 and 2 million times. Very few of these defensive gun uses receive national publicity—if they receive publicity at all.

FL: Justices delve into ‘stand your ground’ change

Two years after lawmakers approved a controversial change to the state’s “stand your ground” self-defense law, the Florida Supreme Court on Wednesday heard arguments about whether the change should apply to a woman charged in a shooting incident outside a Miami-Dade County nightclub.

The defendant, Tashara Love, was charged in 2015, but her case remained pending when lawmakers changed the “stand your ground” law in 2017. The issue before the Supreme Court centers on whether the revised law should apply to Love’s case — and potentially other cases that began before 2017.
 

Anti-gun Democrats Press for Publicly Funded Gun Control Advocacy

One of the most infamous studies, for example, is still referenced by gun control advocates to this day as supposedly establishing that residents of a home with a firearm in it are more likely to be killed by that firearm than to use it in self-defense. But, as Dr. John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center explained at Wednesday’s hearing, 86% of the homicides covered by the study were committed by means other than the residents’ own firearms. And, he said, researchers undercounted defensive firearm use by ignoring cases in which the assailant was not actually killed with the firearm.

“America has its share of crime, but at least in the U.S. it has been decreasing for decades, while in Great Britain it is increasing exponentially. London has become the crime capital of the world and not just for burglaries, but also for rapes and assaults with guns and knives. And remember knives are prohibited on the streets of London and handguns are prohibited in all of Great Britain.”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Americans need not fear the federal government because they enjoy the advantage of being armed, which you possess over the people of almost every other nation. — James Madison.
