Slightly more than one year after passing policy CKA to allow approved staff to carry concealed firearms on school district property, the Uinta County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees voted again to adopt the concealed carry rule at the Tuesday, April 9 regular board meeting.

After several months of revisiting the rule and again soliciting public comments following a court ruling declaring the original policy null and void last fall, trustees voted unanimously in favor of the CKA “packet,” which included the rule itself and all attendant documents and forms, along with the district’s responses to public comments received. Trustee Russell Cox was not in attendance at the meeting.

The Honorable Roger T. Benitez issued a stay on his own ruling to protect the hundreds of thousands of people who imported magazines into California while his ruling stood. He did that as a preemptive strike against the Ninth Circuit issuing a stay without the protection for those who had purchased magazines while it was in effect.

He had a choice, issue the stay under his conditions, or have the Ninth Circuit issue the stay under their conditions. He chose wisely.

Legislation allowing medical personnel to carry guns when they are involved in tactical law enforcement duties was passed by the Florida House.

They would have to undergo firearms training and training in the law enforcement agency's use-of-force policies.
 

OR: Polk Co. leaders vote in favor of making their county a 'gun sanctuary

Polk County commissioners voted Thursday night in favor of making the county a “gun sanctuary.”

Commissioner James Woody said the vote was 8 to 1.

The resolution reads in part, "the Polk County Government won’t authorize funds, resources, or agencies to enforce any element such as laws, orders, and mandates that infringe on the right to bear arms."

All current laws still apply.

Jeremiah Jack is a floor manager at Benton’s Shooter Supply, which he feels stands to benefit if commissioners pass the resolution.

"Being a gun sanctuary, it's probably going to help our business, just in the past few days, I've already seen an increase,” he said.
 

CO: Tackling Questions About Colorado’s Red Flag Law and the Second Amendment

If the petition is for a 14-day emergency order, the hearing must be held within one court day, but it may be done without the defendant present.

The burden of proof is also lower, at a preponderance of the evidence. However, the petitioner must show that the risk of harm is in the “near future,” and must seek a full-fledged hearing for a yearlong order or else the emergency order expires after 14 days and the individual must have their firearms returned.
 

CO: Colorado Governor Signs Deadly Red Flag Bill Into Law

Colorado is now the fifteenth state to sign a red flag bill into law. Twenty-nine other states are also considering such legislation. Colorado’s Democratic Governor, Jared Polis, signed HB 1177, the state’s red flag bill, into law. The legislation will take effect in 2020.

This new red flag law presents an interesting scenario because it 2/3 of Colorado’s counties have become Second Amendment sanctuary counties. If somebody were to put a red flag on you and the judge finds that you're a risk to yourself or others you have 14 days for a hearing to prove your innocence, where it used to be up to the government to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

There's outrage nationwide, and we now know there's a rally that could bring hundreds of armed activists to town.

There's now fallout after Broken Arrow Police arrested Richard Hubbard for allegedly pointing a gun at Neinhuis Park.

"Even though it may hurt someones feelings it doesn't make it illegal what other people do," said Damien Garza, an Oklahoma Second Amendment Association member.

Second Amendment supporters like Garza are coming to Hubbard's defense.

Australia: Shooters Fishers Farmers Party in NSW Australia Claims Three Seats

The Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party SFF in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, has gained a seat in the lower house in the 2019 elections. They now have three seats out of 135 in the lower house, and two seats out of 42 in the upper house, the Legislative Council. David Leyonhjelm, a Libertarian, is expected to win a seat in the upper house and to vote with the SFF on firearms issues.

Because the NSW government is a parliamentary system, the small parties can have a disproportionate impact. In the lower house, the SFF has the same number of seats as the Green party. The 2019 election was held on 23 March. Only half of the upper house, the Legislative council was up for election.

“Nobody expected us to become so successful: We were just a small group of activists communicating through social media, but we have been able to generate enormous pressure that ended in the proposal being watered down considerably,” said Andrea Favaro, the Italian representative for Firearms United. “The results were astonishing, mainly because we did this with almost no money and support.”

It looks like it is. Consider: 64 of Illinois’ 102 counties have now declared themselves to be “sanctuary counties” for law-abiding gun owners, while another 26 are entertaining such resolutions. Riding that wave, Effingham County passed a resolution on Monday banning the state’s FOID (firearm owner’s identification cards) because, according to board member David Campbell, “it’s unconstitutional to require someone to pay a fee for a constitutionally protected right.”
