Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear it in the news. Instructor Robyn Street joins host Rob Morse to talk about three new examples.

First story- It is Sunday morning when your dog starts barking. You pad downstairs to see what is happening. A man is standing inside your screen porch trying to break your back door.
Second story- You finished your shopping. You try to close your car door when a man tells you to get out of your car and give him the keys.
Third story- You’re in your bedroom at the back of the house. You hear gunshots. A stranger is standing in the front room yelling, and he has a gun.

What would you do in these situations? Text and podcast available at the link. (18 minute podcast)

If Jon Villing ever had to use one of the guns he sells at Target World in self-defense, he would like Ohio's gun laws to afford him more protections than he says is currently the case. "If we are in a shooting, the burden is on us to prove why we did it," Villing said. "With a stand-your-ground law, the burden will be on the prosecutor." There are two stand-your-ground proposals up for debate in Columbus, Senate Bill 180 and House Bill 228, which appears to have the most momentum.

What is the difference between ten people killed in Toronto, allegedly by a nut behind the wheel of a van and four people killed in Nashville, allegedly by a disturbed man wielding a semi-auto rifle? For those on the political left, the Toronto victims fell to a deranged individual, while in Nashville, the four Waffle House shooting victims died from “gun violence.” It is not clear if the ten Canadians are any less dead than the four Tennessee victims, but Nashville Mayor David Briley, a Democrat, almost immediately called for stricter gun control laws.

In boxing, a fighter’s weight is measured and reported to the audience. Size matters in a fight. I’m a 5’3” female and I weigh in at a whopping 104 lbs. (Tiny person, mighty spirit.) But presumably I wouldn’t do well fending off a physical attack. So when liberals started talking about female empowerment and fighting rapists, I got excited. Turns out, we had some disconnect on what empowerment really means. My internal conversation with liberals went something like this.
 

After Parkland Shooting, NRA Posts Biggest Fundraising Haul in Nearly 20 Years

The National Rifle Association's Political Victory Fund raised $2.4 million in donations in March, setting a 21st-century record for the group in the month after a gunman killed 17 students and educators at a high school in Parkland, Fla. The unprecedented haul came as gun-control advocates, led by student survivors of the shooting, saw legislative victories in a number of states and marched on the U.S. Capitol to demand change at the federal level. The data from the Federal Election Commission show that $1.9 million of the $2.4 million total, about 80 percent of it, came from small donations of $200 or less, which was in line with the small-dollar share of previous months' fundraising totals.

The Louisiana Senate is expected to vote today on a bill which would prohibit the sale, manufacture, purchase, possession, or transfer of bump stocks and other “rapid-fire” devices.

The legislation would prohibits a person from "importing, manufacturing, selling, keeping for sale, offering for sale, purchasing, possessing or transferring within this state a rapid-fire device, and provides that anyone who violates this prohibition shall be fined not more than $1,000, imprisoned for not more than one year, or both."

For several months now, Washington State Troopers have been carrying a new weapon in their cars—one that could save lives. All WA State Troopers now have a special shotgun on hand--one with bean bag bullets designed to stun, not kill. “Okay, we're in a scenario now where this person has a knife in their hand, a bat in their hand, and they're walking at us really slowly, demanding that we kill him in an attempt to get a suicide by cop,” said Trooper Chris Thorson, acting out a scenario with a target in place. “We can deploy this less-than-lethal bean bag round.”
 

Gun Control Advocates Play on Emotions

“It’s for the children.” This phrase tugs at the heartstrings and paints any opposition as being “against children.” It is a masterful play on emotion with a framework that works across a spectrum of issues. The latest example of how that plea is being used today comes in every story that focuses on the expansion of firearms regulation. After the tragic shooting in Parkland, Fla., a full-scale effort has been put into motion to limit our Second Amendment rights. To suggest that the press coverage and rallies are organic and based on this one event is naďve. Those fervently against the Second Amendment have well-orchestrated plans that can be set into motion following tragic events like this. And they are doing so.

The debate over gun laws and the Second Amendment has been under increasing scrutiny from those who want tighter restrictions. Monday night, Columbia County Sheriff Clay Whittle spoke out in defense of the right to bear arms: "It's always good that the public learns that they have to look out for themselves." Sheriff Whittle explained law enforcement is a necessity but can only do so much-- especially when it comes to school security. The Columbia County Board of Education voted just weeks ago to guard all 31 schools with armed officers come Fall.

Allen West, the former South Florida congressman who was beloved and hated for his verbal grenades, is cranking up his outrage machine again — defending the National Rifle Association from its critics, throwing shade at the Broward Sheriff’s Office and tearing into Hollywood celebrities. He suggested that armed NRA members would have done a better job intervening to stop the carnage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School than Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, who was on duty at the school during the Feb. 14 massacre in which 17 people were killed and 17 wounded.

When was the last time you sat down for dinner with a person who challenged your ideas? How did it go? Was it civil?

But it’s also possible and we’ll prove it to you this Thursday on TheBlaze as we Make America Dinner Again.
