An Arizona homeowner shot and killed a suspected intruder and injured another man when the duo tried to break into a house Saturday, police said.

"That's when the homeowner shot them. One of them passed away from their injuries and the other was taken to the hospital,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Jamie Rothschild said, adding that anyone with information regarding the incident should contact authorities.

The homeowner told AZFamily.com in a brief interview that he won't hesitate to defend himself again in a future break-in.

On Friday, the NRA, supporters of the Second Amendment, and gun owners clinched a sweet win, with a ruling from a federal judge that threw that law right into the trash. Judge Roger T. Benitez also took California Attorney General Xavier Beccera to the woodshed for his arguments in support of the legislation (via NRA-ILA):

Some Colorado sheriffs have vowed to not enforce the law if approved. And then there is Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams who has declared he is willing to go to jail in order to protect his constituents' Second Amendment rights.

The election of Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini signals a change in attitude among Italians. Salvini has been pictured holding firearms in publicity.

Currently the government is supporting a “legitimate defense”bill—a “castle doctrine” style law that would protect gun owners from liability when they defend themselves in their own homes.

Facing little movement in Congress, gun-control groups turn focus toward preventing suicide, handgun violence

The National Rifle Association said it supports the concept of legislation that would prevent dangerously mentally ill people from possessing firearms. But it has not backed any of the red flag laws that have passed in recent months because of concerns they violate gun owners' due process. The NRA supports a federal red flag bill sponsored by Rep. John Katko, R-N.Y., and generally believes there should be criminal penalties for those who bring false charges and that individuals should be able to challenge such orders. The group also has supported suicide prevention efforts.

Dubbed the "1 October bill," Nevada leaders will take a look at a measure to ban bump stocks on the state level.

The bill’s sponsor is a Route 91 Harvest Festival survivor.

Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui said while there is already a federal ban on bump stocks, she wants a similar measure to pass at the state level as a safety net.

OH: Gun bill unsafe for Ohioans

In this country, gun bans are not the answer, but neither is loosening restrictions on who can and can’t own guns, which makes a move Thursday by some Ohio House Republicans — and even supported by Gov. Mike DeWine — all the more puzzling. Nearly half of Ohio’s House Republicans are pushing for passage of a new bill that gives all law-abiding Ohians the right to carry a concealed weapon without going through a permit process or training. If this reckless bill becomes law, anyone over 21 — not disqualified by federal law due to a felony conviction or other offense from obtaining a weapon — would be able to legally carry a hidden gun.

Late yesterday, the Judiciary Committee announced yet another change to Monday's agenda for their gun control hearing, this time limiting the amount of time for consideration on AB 291, the omnibus gun control bill, and a time change for AB 153, to impose one-size-fits-all standards for firearm storage. This sudden change seems to signal an alarming trend where legislation impacting our Second Amendment rights gets rushed through a single joint committee hearing instead of separate hearings in each chamber like other legislation.

Senate Democrats had hopes earlier that they might be able to peel away a few moderate suburban Republican senators to force wins on gun control and some other issues, but that hasn't happened yet. The Senate GOP has a three-vote majority, 35-32. House Democrats hold a 16-vote, 75-59 majority. Big or small, majorities decide which bills get heard and which ones don't.

OK: It is absolutely about guns

It is worthwhile to question how criminals get their guns. To paint those who are for gun regulations that might prevent even some of the wrong people from getting firearms as anti-gun and anti-freedom is nothing but propaganda. To question their motives as not about guns but about control is just paranoia.

It is absolutely about guns. It’s about trying to establish sensible controls to reduce gun violence. I am too tired and have enough on my plate to want to control something for the sake of having control. But as a mom and as a human being who cares about the countless lives lost to gun violence every day, it is hard to say, not my problem.

Gun rights groups were similarly bewildered by the state Supreme Court’s decision.

“This is like suing Ford or General Motors because a car they sold was stolen and used to run over a pedestrian all because the car manufacturers advertised that their car had better acceleration and performance than other vehicles,” the Second Amendment Foundation’s Alan Gottlieb said in a statement.

In Illinois, do you need to have a concealed-carry permit to carry a stun gun or Taser on your body?

Nope. Two weeks ago, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled that such devices can be so carried without such a license.

County commissions across New Mexico have declared their communities “second amendment sanctuaries” following complaints that new state gun laws violate constitutional rights.

But the Bernalillo County Commission is not among them – a distinction several people noted during last week’s board meeting.

About a half-dozen people took to the podium during public comment last Tuesday to urge the five-member elected board to put a sanctuary resolution on the agenda at an upcoming meeting. They described similar action by almost every other county commission in New Mexico.
