A licensed gun owner in Philadelphia is claiming self-defense after shooting three teens who were allegedly attacking him on a public transit bus, police said Thursday.

The 24-year-old man, who police said had a concealed-carry permit for his weapon, was sitting in the back of the bus when the group approached him and an altercation soon followed, according to Lt. Dennis Rosenbaum of Northeast Detectives.

The unidentified gun owner gave his weapon to investigators and is cooperating, Philadelphia's FOX 29 reported. They had yet to speak with the teens, who remained hospitalized.

Submitter's Note: Poor choice in victim selection.

The Army Corps of Engineers, which manages more than 400 waterways in the U.S. and many of the recreational opportunities found there—camping, fishing, boating, hiking and more—is accepting written comments on a proposal to modernize its firearm policy and better recognize the right to self-defense.

“This proposed revision would align the Corps regulation with the regulations of the other Federal land management agencies by removing the need for an individual to obtain written permission before possessing a weapon on Corps projects,” the announcement explains.

Millions of new gun owners brought their gun home. That gun in its box in the bedroom closet won’t keep you safe until it is part of your security plan. Becoming a gunfighter takes months of practice and makes you seconds faster. In contrast, having a security plan takes only a few hours and gives you minutes of advantage. Spend your time where it does the most good. This is what you should do first.

Arizona processed a record 82,771 background checks on would-be gun buyers in March, as fears of the coronavirus drove people to gun shops in what one shop owner called “panic time.”

It was twice as high as any March in the state since FBI background checks began in 1998 and almost one-quarter of the total sales in Arizona for all of 2019, according to NICS Firearm Checks data, which showed a doubling of background checks from February.
 

ME: City of Portland Illegally Classifies Gun Shops as “Non-Essential”

In response to COVID-19, the Portland Mayor and City Council adopted Order No. 156-19/20 on April 14th, which replaced the list of essential businesses previously authorized by the city. The order stated that "Gun shops shall not be considered an essential business or service within the City of Portland."

Not only does this order directly conflict with the new list of essential businesses published on April 3rd by the Mills administration, but it blatantly conflicts with Maine’s preemption law.
 

VA: Trump’s Tweet About Virginia’s Gun Safety Laws Is Flat-Out False

President Donald Trump tweeted a call to “liberate Virginia” Friday morning, falsely claiming the Second Amendment is “under siege” in the state.

In reality, the gun safety legislation signed by Gov. Ralph Northam earlier this month may have been historic for the Commonwealth, but many similar laws are already on the books in a dozen or more states.

As the token revolver nerd around here, sometimes I feel compelled to discuss niche topics that perhaps 100 people will read. For example, the case for the .32 caliber defensive revolver, specifically small revolvers firing 32 H&R Magnum. If that's not your cup of tea, check out this great article on picking your first handgun for the COVID-19 Apocalypse.

The Fifth District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach issued its decision Wednesday ending the prosecution of John DeRossett, 60, on the charge of attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer while discharging a firearm, Florida Today reported. DeRossett spent nearly five years at the Brevard County jail before being allowed to leave on bond in March.

DeRossett’s attorney, Michael Panella, said the appellate decision is better than a jury acquittal, because an acquittal only means that a defendant is not guilty.

“This order means that John is innocent, that his actions were justified, and that he never should have been arrested in the first place,” Panella said. "It’s a total vindication.”

I’ve been carrying a Glock pistol either on or off-duty, or both, since the early 1990s. My first experience with the manufacturer was a second generation Model 19 and at the time I was already familiar with the Glock Model 17 (G17). I often expressed my desire for a G17 size frame but with a G19 size slide assembly. Along with that desire was one for a single stack Glock that was roughly the same size as a Government Model 1911. I wanted a slim Glock with a 5” barrel and 7 or more rounds.

Late yesterday, NRA and other pro-Second Amendment plaintiffs filed a motion in federal court seeking a TRO (temporary restraining order) in the lawsuit previously filed against anti-gun Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. If the motion is granted, the state will be prohibited from enforcing the closure of gun stores and shooting ranges under the Governor's COVID-19 executive order until a full hearing is held before the court.

More than 1,000 protesters gathered at the Idaho Statehouse Friday afternoon in defiance of Gov. Brad Little’s extension of the statewide stay-at-home order.

Little announced Wednesday that the order would extend to the end of April in the effort to slow the spread of coronavirus, although he lightened some restrictions so nonessential businesses could begin providing curbside service. Still, the news was met with derision by some members of the far-right in Idaho, and some libertarian, gun-rights and anti-vaccine organizations began directing members to defy the order.

Kentucky processed some of the highest numbers of background checks in the past three months as potential gun buyers with fears of the coronavirus driving people to gun shops.

Frank Miller — owner of Frank Miller and Son Sporting Goods, which has been in Owensboro for 57 years — said sales at his shop have doubled, if not more.

“We’ve been so busy, it’s unbelievable,” Miller said. “For some reason when things like this happen, people get scared. They think they need a gun to protect their home, which doesn’t make much sense to me but that’s just the way people are.”

For a majority of gun owners, firearms are a means of self-defense inside and outside their homes. While compact semi-auto handguns have become the standard for concealed carry, there remains an ongoing debate about the best gun for home defense.

Resident gun cranks, GUNS/American Handgunner Publisher Roy Huntington and Executive Editor Tom McHale, join Host Brent T. Wheat for a roundtable discussion about home defense, including their personal weapons of choice, necessary accessories and other home protection devices.
