Coach Sean Payton also testified, talking at length of Smith’s passion for his team and family. Hayes, who killed Smith in an altercation following a traffic dispute in April of 2016 and injured Smith’s wife Raquel by shooting her in the legs, could have received 60 years for convictions of manslaughter and attempted manslaughter. Prosecutors want the maximums, served consecutively, for a total of 60 years. State law requires him to serve 85 percent of the sentence before becoming eligible for good-behavior release, meaning he could be freed in roughly 20 years.

A former University of Missouri journalism professor is suggesting that the National Rifle Association (NRA) is more dangerous than ISIS. George Kennedy, former managing editor at the Columbia Missourian newspaper and professor emeritus at the university's prestigious journalism school, brought up the comparison in a column published Thursday by the Missourian. "The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a terrorist organization founded in 1999, headquartered in Syria and feared around the world. The NRA was founded in [1871], headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, and is feared by politicians across America," Kennedy wrote.

By paths clandestine and circuitous, our spies are headed for Atlanta and the 146th Annual Meeting of the National Rifle Association. While this is often a celebration as much as anything else for those who revel in the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment, it’s right work for our trusty minions.
Here are a couple of things we’ve tasked them to hunt up, though what they’ll actually find may prove even more inventive. We’ll see.
 

‘France Has Very Strict Gun Laws, Except For Terrorists’: Newt Gingrich

Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich criticized the policies in France that allowed a terrorist to attack and take the life of a policeman on Thursday. As refugee crime is making a regular appearance in France’s headline news, gun rights are rapidly becoming a greater concern in the lives of the French people. The ability to legally protect themselves is also becoming a significant ballot issue as anti-refugee candidate Maine Le Pen climbs to second in the polls — and rising.

Prompted by the mismanagement and implied corruption of Alderman Pat Dowell, the sweeping epidemic of railroad firearm heists in Chicago has justifiably reached national prominence and more importantly pierced the influential home turf of the sports fan, thanks to the criminal actions of a National Basketball Association alum.

Liberty Park Press shared the plight of the honorable Alderman in late November of 2016 and her reckless approach when addressing a rash of rail yard burglaries featuring a large number of missing guns and culminating in hints of plausible extortion, which prompted a thorough investigation by the ATF.

Residents were asked to bring the items between 8 a.m. and noon in the 19th annual cleanup effort.

"Is this for everybody? No, some people are just gun owners,” Randy Harris said Sunday.

Harris is an instructor for Suarez International, a group that teaches self-defense. On Sunday, Harris and other instructors taught special courses at Uncle Rudy’s Indoor Range over the weekend.

The difference between the guns used during these courses and real guns: orange tips and plastic pellets. But the owner of Uncle Rudy’s said it’s not about the guns.

"It’s not really a firearms class, as much as it's a fighting class to teach you, utilizing your firearm of course, utilizing some knives and different things,” John Rudolph said.
 

A Big Blow to Gun Control

It's bad enough that seemingly no level of gun violence, even the massacre of children in an elementary school, is enough to pull Congress out of the back pocket of the firearms industry. Now some Republicans want to effectively wipe out state laws on concealed handguns altogether. On its face, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, sponsored by Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., would let people who are allowed to carry a concealed firearm in one state carry it in any other state. A closer look shows this bill would gut the ability of states like New York to stem the proliferation of concealed guns.

Although he may not agree politically with Hillary Clinton, Kurt Banford acknowledges the one-time presidential frontrunner was good for his firearm business. “I think if Hillary would have got in, I would have been in Florida retiring because of panic buying,” said Banford, owner of Kurt’s Shooters Supply in Painesville. “The gun shops would have sold out and closed.”

Expect New Fear Mongering as Gun Lobby Works to Prop Up Sales

The fever-pitch national hysteria over gun rights ahead of the Nov. 8 presidential elections has all but disappeared now that Donald Trump is president. In terms of federal action directly affecting Second Amendment rights, nothing has changed since President Barack Obama’s departure. The absence of an easily identifiable demon in Washington has frustrated gun makers and their top lobbyists. Obama’s presidency was a boon to the industry. Today, the gun lobby is having trouble gaining political traction. A tepid recent effort to ease restrictions on noise suppressors, often known as silencers, made little headway, probably because it’s hard to get politicians worked up over the need for quieter gun technology.

Until 2016, my Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit was valid on school campuses in California. There was a legal exemption for peace officers and valid CCW holders which allowed them to carry in so-called “Gun-Free School Zones.” As of 2016, the legislature and governor decided that I should not be able to carry on school campuses by signing SB 707.

Republican businessman John Cox jokes that he made his fortune in potato chips, a reference to the purchase and turnaround of Jays Foods by his venture capital company in the 1990s. Cox, a Chicago native who now lives in San Diego County, says he wants to spend some of that money on his campaign for governor of California. The 61-year-old attorney says he running to clean up a political system that “rewards the funders of campaigns who get to dictate what happens in Sacramento.”

If Joe the Pittsburgher parks near Heinz Field, enjoys a Steelers victory over Baltimore and returns to find his car looted and his handgun stolen from his glovebox, he’s required to tell police.

If Jim, a more criminally minded resident, sells guns illegally from his trunk, he has the same obligation to report when guns change hands — but, of course, he doesn’t.

A poster figure of John Wayne, the mega-hero of Hollywood westerns, offers a greeting here at the gun museum’s gallery door as he holds his Winchester carbine at the ready and offers an amiably crooked grin. The bad guys in the movies never fully understood that the menace behind Wayne’s grin (“Whoa, take ‘er easy there, Pilgrim”) meant he was about to deliver blazing fantasies of triumphant gunfire that would leave them dead in the dust. It’s no wonder modern Florida legislators could not resist protecting actual shooters who draw and fire like John Wayne as guilt-free, “stand-your-ground” defenders.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
