AL: Bill to Allow Guns in Church

One Alabama lawmaker wants you to be able to protect yourself and others inside a church. "The Alabama Protection Act," would allow churchgoers to defend themselves with guns at church. Republican representative Lynn Greer's bill would prevent someone who uses deadly force in church as a means of protection from being criminally or civilly charged. "It just something that we are having to face, that I never dreamed of in my lifetime we would face, but that day has arrived."

What is more frustrating than myths that get passed around with such regularity when no one pauses long enough to examine whether or not they are true? Maybe a case of the shingles, but other than that… Here are some firearms and home defense myths that just won’t die.
 

Murders Up Since WA Gun Control Laws Passed

Reporting on a “troubling” trend in random killings involving homeless people in Seattle and King County, Washington, a Seattle Times story has the unintentional consequence of revealing how homicides in the county that overwhelmingly supported a pair of restrictive gun control initiatives have actually gone up since the measures were passed.

Whether anyone will ask backers of Initiatives 594 (in 2014) and 1639 (in 2018) about this when they gather for a rally this Saturday at Seattle City Hall about this remains to be seen. But thanks to the newspaper, which backed both gun control measures, the homicide data is there for all to see.

American seniors – those aged 65 and over – are growing in numbers. And thanks to medical and technological advances, our seniors are living longer than any previous U.S. generation. While these people have lived their lives and should be given the respect that age earns, too often they’re taken advantage of and made into victims of crime.

The National Rifle Association has sued its longtime advertising agency, accusing the company that has helped shape its Second Amendment advocacy of withholding crucial financial details in its billing documents. The lawsuit filed Friday in Alexandria, Virginia, says Oklahoma City-based Ackerman McQueen is contractually bound to show backing paperwork on its bills to the NRA. But the NRA says the firm has only partly complied or "baldly ignored" requests for more information.

AL: Alabama “Red Flag” Bill Aims To Reduce Gun Violence, Allows Courts To Remove Guns From Those Considered A Threat

On March 21, Coleman introduced HB265, also known as the Gun Violence Protective Order Act. If passed, this law would prohibit individuals who are found by the court to be a legitimate threat to themselves or others from owning, possessing, using, or receiving a firearm for up to one year. Coleman said in a phone interview that this legislation was modeled after other “red flag” bills that have been passed in different states around the country. She believes HB265 would give family members, teachers, and law enforcement officers a critical tool to help prevent a potential gun tragedy in Alabama. However, she was also sure to stress the strict process that must be completed for an order to be issued.

Wringing Out CCI’s New Clean-22 Rimfire Loads

Available in 40-grain lead loads in sub-sonic (1070 fps, blue-tipped bullet) and high velocity (1235 fps, red-tipped bullet), the Clean-22 uses a polymer bullet coating. CCI also claims the powder formula used burns more cleanly. I shoot several Steel Challenge matches a month with rimfire rifle and pistol. It doesn’t take more than one or two malfunctions to really screw up my day, so I was very interested in this new rimfire technology. A call to CCI brought enough ammo for an extensive test.

According to a survey released Friday by Fairleigh Dickinson University Poll and the New Jersey Farm Bureau, New Jersey residents across party lines strongly support hunting as a way of controlling the state's deer population. Overall, 62% approve of deer hunting, which received majority support from Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is now accepting applications for a limited number of deer and pig hunting permits for the opening weekend of the A Zone general deer season, Aug. 10-11, 2019. This is not a special hunt, but rather a drawing to control the number of hunters on popular public land in the area on opening weekend only.

Snub-nose revolvers remain popular with concealed carriers despite the advent of reliable, compact semi-automatic pistols. While demand for 4- and 6-inch-barreled “duty” revolvers has dropped off, the market for snubbies is stronger than ever. What’s a snubbie? They’re 2- to 3-inch-barreled revolvers, most often seen in .38 Spl. and .357 Mag. calibers. They’re the choice of many concealed carriers and have remained popular as police backup guns because they are hard to beat as up-close-and-personal fight stoppers.
 

California Gun Owners Short Opportunity to Buy Magazines Hailed as “Freedom Week”

The span from March 29 to April 5 is being called “Freedom Week” because it was a time period when California gun owners were allowed to buy previously prohibited magazines. A federal judge's ruling March 29 in an NRA-supported challenge to California’s magazine banlifted the floodgates for people who had been unable to make such purchases in 20 years. Suddenly Californians no longer had restrictions over the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer, receipt, and possession of magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

Did you hear about this case? A man went into a dentist’s office, killed a woman, and took aim at others before being wounded by a concealed handgun permit holder. “He raised a gun to shoot me,” said dental hygienist Sabrina Steal. Even the killer called the permit holder a “hero.” “You all wouldn’t be dealing with me right now if the hero hadn’t stepped in,” he told police after the attack. Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy used the same word, perhaps with greater sincerity: “He was a concealed carry permit holder and I’m going to call him a hero today.”

LA: Monroe's Jay Holiday Works to Resurrect Louisiana Sales Tax Holidays

The House Ways and Means Committee approved a bill Monday, April 15 that would restore Louisiana’s three sales tax holidays, which lawmakers accidentally suspended during a scurry to fix the budget last special session. Without objection, the committee approved Monroe Republican Jay Morris’s plan to restore the three holidays to the same form they were in before lawmakers eliminated them. That would allow for a hurricane preparedness holiday in May, a Second Amendment hunting holiday in September and a back-to-school general sales tax break in August.

A Texas gun company filed suit last week against the federal government over the newly enacted ban on bump stocks. Michael Stewart, co-founder of RW Arms, described the ban as “an injustice, overreach, and infringement on our Second Amendment and Fifth Amendment rights.” Of course it isn’t. The overdue ban is merely a sane and reasonable reaction to mass killings in America.

Colorado has officially adopted a "red flag" gun law, but Eagle County Sheriff James van Beek believes the controversial legislation is an overreach. The law -- which didn't receive a single Republican vote in the state legislature -- allows firearms to be seized from people determined to pose a danger.
