Mason shot and killed Beth Hamlin-Slawson, 25, and her husband Lukas Slawson, 35, in the early morning hours of Feb. 3, 2018, at the home of Beth’s parents in the 5500 block of Whiteman Road SW in Longbranch.
 

IA: Time Running Out To Support Critical Self-Defense Legislation

The Iowa state House of Representatives has the opportunity to ensure that law-abiding citizens are able to defend themselves and their loved ones. Unfortunately, they have still not brought up House File 636, the Family Defense Act, for debate and time is running out to move that critical piece of legislation. Under current law, Permit to Carry Weapons (PCW) holders are left defenseless when they choose to pick-up or drop-off their loved-ones at school or have to comply with the anti-self-defense policies their employer sets for parking lots.

April 3rd marked the deadline for all policy committees to advance bills received from the opposite chamber. Having failed to receive a vote in the House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee, Senate Bill 5434 to expand gun-free zones is now likely dead for the year.

WY: The ‘perfect deer rifle’ is the one you can use well to hunt

One of the staple articles for the gun magazines when things start getting stale is “the perfect deer rifle.” Which would be a good subject for a column, except out here in Cody country. Out here in the mountain West, hunters don’t need the “perfect deer rifle.” What we need is the perfect deer, elk, moose, bear, prairie dog, jack rabbit, rock chuck, coyote and everything else rifle. Which, I might add, doesn’t exist.

This week, Comm2A filed a petition for Writ of Certiorari with the United States Supreme Court in Gould v. Morgan. Originally filed in February of 2014, Gould is a Second Amendment challenge to licensing policies in Brookline and Boston which require applicants to demonstrate a ‘proper purpose' for carrying a firearm. If the court grants certiorari review the case will likely be heard during the October Term 2019.
 

NM: APD: Stabbing was possibly in self defense

This was not a domestic violence incident, but an inter-family incident, Peete said.

"It was not a domestic violence incident. It was just inter-family dynamics that are going on," Peete said. "It was not a domestic violence incident in the traditional sense."

Police have said evidence suggests the stabbing was in self-defense.
 

Self-Defense Weapons for Real Estate Agents

Sadly, only 45% of women and 40% of men real estate professionals chose to carry any self-defense weapon or tool, as reported by this 2018 NAR Safety Study, down from previous years. I guess that other folks from several different professions and jobs also do not carry any form of a self-defense weapon. For sure, the dangers and risks have not been reduced nowadays, and in this author’s opinion, more real estate professionals and others should carry some self-defense weapon or tool.
 

Warning Stupid Ahead: Don’t Get Your Gun Advice from The New York Times

Several decades ago, media liberals (an absurd redundancy) fervently lobbied for a federal ban on “Saturday-Night Special” handguns.

SNSs (Saturday night specials)were ambiguously described as “cheap, small, and underpowered,” and those aspects made them “bad,” so bad that no American citizen should ever be allowed to own one.

We were assured this was all so necessary, because SNSs were, “… the preferred weapon of criminals.”

(Next, they’ll be saying, “Fords, the preferred car of drunk drivers.”)

In a recent NYT editorial, the latest generation of these same arrogant liberal clowns has exactly reversed themselves.
 

FL: Gun bills overlook that guns are sometimes needed

Democratic lawmakers in Florida entered this year’s legislative session hoping to flex a little more muscle on guns.

By one count just before the session opened, Democrats had offered more than 50 bills affecting gun ownership, possession, or sales. And the New Zealand government’s lightning-quick crackdown on firearms following the massacre in Christchurch likely inspired new hope among them that headway could be made on gun control to slow what many perceive to be an epidemic of gun violence.

But in recent weeks some Polk County cases have shown that, despite the good intentions that supposedly accompany such legislation, denying the right of self-defense via guns is ill-advised.

Two shootings in 24 hours in Tulsa, and police said one is a clear case of self-defense.

An attack can happen at any moment, many happen in places we all use daily like a parking lot.

Self-defense instructors believe it's critical to get training before you become a victim.

"The number one question we have to eliminate in self-defense is 'What am I going to do?'" said Robert Jerome, Director of Training at 2A Shooting Center.
 

Stricter gun legislation is not the answer to gun violence

Elizabeth Short’s heart is in the right place, but her conclusion in her March 27 column is off the mark.

The massacre in New Zealand struck a nerve with my community. As a Muslim woman, I was hurt and afraid for my safety and the safety of my loved ones. I am terrified that somebody might attack my mosque next. That is why I am staunchly against stricter gun control as a response to the Christchurch shootings.

PA: Pittsburgh Is Moving Forward With Gun Reform After the Tree of Life Shooting. But the Legal Battle Is Just Beginning

Pittsburgh’s City Council has approved three controversial gun reform bills months after a gunman shot and killed 11 people at the city’s Tree of Life synagogue. But the votes set up the city for a number of legal challenges.

The 6-3 final vote on Tuesday on a package of three gun control bills comes about five months after the deadly synagogue shooting. The legislation would restrict military-style assault weapons (including the AR-15, which authorities have said the Tree of Life shooter used during the massacre), ban the use of armor-piercing ammunition and high-capacity magazines, and allow guns to be seized temporarily from people deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.
 

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership Condemns Jewish Calls To Disarm

After outrageous mass murders in New Zealand—and deadly acts of similar sociopaths in recent memory—too many Jews around the world, among other thought leaders, are again screaming bloody murder to disarm innocent people who didn't do anything. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) condemns these dangerous illogical demands in the strongest terms possible. Facing these threats, you should call for the exact opposite, as Brazil is doing (WSJ, 3/16, A10).
