There's a new shooting league coming to northern Michigan, and this one is for the ladies.

It's called A Girl & A Gun. It's a nationwide women-only shooting league, and it's second Michigan chapter is opening in Traverse City.

Alycia Pollotta decided to establish the chapter after opening her own business, Like A Lady Firearms Training, in Fall 2018.

Her classes focus on proper shooting and gun safety, as well as prepare people to apply for their concealed pistol license.

While Like a Lady Firearms Training is open to men and women, Pollotta says her mission is to give women a stress-free and encouraging environment to learn about firearms.

A fatal shooting Wednesday morning in York was self-defense, according to officials with the district attorney's office.

Authorities said Friday that the victim, Christian Gutierrez-Rosado, broke into a home on the 700 block of West Princess Street and assaulted a resident.

The resident shot Gutierrez-Rosado once in the chest, killing him, according to investigators.

Officials said Gutierrez-Rosado had previously been charged with felony strangulation against one the residents and wasn't supposed to be at the property.

Federal has expanded its Syntech line of polymer ammunition into the personal-protection realm, with Syntech Defense. The bullet in Syntech Defense has a core that penetrates 12 to 18 inches through bare ballistics gel and heavy clothing—a benchmark in self-defense situations. The segments create three secondary wound channels, each more than 6 inches deep, adding to the terminal effect.

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris said during a campaign stop in Iowa that she is one of the tens of millions of Americans who own a firearm.

"I am a gun owner, and I own a gun for probably the reason a lot of people do — for personal safety," the 2020 hopeful from California told reporters Thursday after a house party in Des Moines, Iowa. "I was a career prosecutor."

Harris advocated a ban on assault-style weapons but insisted she still supported the Second Amendment.

On April 10, 2019, New Zealand MPs voted almost unanimously to pass draconian gun control laws in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque shooting. As a result, “military-style semiautomatic firearms” are now banned. New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardem stated she would be signing the legislation into law, claiming “these weapons were designed to kill.”
 

CO: Gov. Polis signs hard-fought Colorado red-flag gun measure into law

Controversy over the bill is not going to end with its signing into law. About half the counties in the state have passed resolutions declaring themselves “Second Amendment sanctuary counties,” in which they discourage their judges and sheriffs from issuing and carrying out orders to seize weapons.

And the specter of recall elections targeted at certain lawmakers who voted in favor of HB 1177 is real. In 2013, two Democratic state senators were recalled after they voted in favor of gun control legislation while a third Democratic colleague, Evie Hudak, resigned to avoid an ouster election.

A homeowner shot a man suspected of breaking into his truck early Friday morning.

Police vehicles lined Hunter Hawk near Northwest Military and Huebner as officers tracked blood droplets from the suspect shot who fled the scene.

"They began to follow that blood trail that led down the block," San Antonio Police Spokesperson Carlos Ortiz said. "At some point, though, that blood trail went dry."
 

The ACLU Defends Gun Owners' Constitutional Rights, Except for the Second Amendment Right to Own Guns

But while the ACLU is commendably willing to defend the First Amendment rights of gun owners and Second Amendment advocates, the national organization still takes the position that, contrary to what the Supreme Court has said, the Constitution does not guarantee an individual right to armed self-defense.

We live in the internet age where we have a world of information at our fingertips. The downside is that we’re flooded with details while we lose the larger truths. Our problem isn’t ignorance, but lack of perspective. Today, the media can shock us with something that is technically true, but intellectually meaningless. I want to show you two examples. One is boringly familiar while the other is virtually invisible to us because of media bias.

Both sides agreed Richard L. Tyma Sr. sat in his bed and shot his adult son in the face last November in their South Dayton home.

Yet while the prosecution argued Tyma was a callus killer who shot his son for some peace and quiet, the defense painted him as a helpless victim left with no other choice after his violent, drug-dealing son ripped his phone cord out of the wall and threatened to inject him with heroin.

A jury, following a three-day trial in Cattaraugus County Court, ultimately sided with the defense, acquitting the elderly, sickly father of murder Friday. Jurors found Tyma, 73, not guilty of both second-degree murder, a class A-1 felony, and first-degree manslaughter, a class B felony.

In 2017, anti-gun researcher John Donohue and his team released a study that purported to find that Right to Carry laws increase overall violent crime rates. The paper was updated six months later seemingly to address criticism of its methodology and produced the same conclusion. Readers may be familiar with the study as an anti-gun press fawned over the results without questioning the mechanism of the effect or the methodology itself.

New York City decided to change a portion of its gun laws related to the transport of firearms just a few months after the Supreme Court decided to review a lawsuit scrutinizing the city’s gun control laws.

Licensed gun owners in New York City will soon be able to legally transport their firearm to a second home, business or any other place gun possession is permitted as a result of a rules change the NYPD announced Friday, The New York Daily News reported.

While personal protection is indeed a benefit of the right to keep and bear arms, it is not the exclusive justification the Founders articulated. They did not even mention that reason in the Second Amendment, which focuses entirely on a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State. That means an armed populace was essential from which that militia could draw troops, and that infringing on the people’s right to keep and bear arms sufficient to the task negated and eviscerated that security.
 

NY: NRA Statement on New York City's Desperate Attempt to Avoid Supreme Court Review

The City of New York clearly knows that its current restrictions on the carrying and transportation of lawfully owned firearms are unconstitutional and will fail under any standard of constitutional review, as the NRA has been saying for years. Today, it asked the U.S. Supreme Court to ignore the Constitution and allow the City to slow walk a narrow expansion of its current policy through a lengthy bureaucratic process -- the result of which, even if adopted, would still unduly infringe upon the fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment.
