SC: White SC officer charged with murder for shooting black man

A South Carolina police officer was arrested and charged with murder Tuesday in the weekend shooting death of a motorist after a traffic stop over a faulty brake light.
City Patrolman Michael Thomas Slager, who is white, was taken into custody after law enforcement officials saw a video of him shooting 50-year-old Walter Scott, who is black, in the back as he ran away. Slager, 33, a five-year veteran of the North Charleston force, was denied bond at a brief first appearance hearing Tuesday. If convicted, he faces 30 years to life in prison.
North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey announced the charges at a hastily called news conference in which he said City Patrolman Michael Thomas Slager made "a bad decision."

The Republican-run House made another attempt Wednesday at revamping and expanding Iowa’s gun laws. But the changes likely will not go far with majority Senate Democrats who previously passed a scaled-back measure to legalize firearms suppressors.

Rep. Matt Windschitl, R-Missouri Valley, called the House changes to the bill Senate File 427 an attempt to forge a “middle ground” compromise on expanding gun owners’ rights and an effort to “find the art of the possible in sending a good piece of legislation down to the governor” during Wednesday’s spirited floor debate.

Five years ago when executives at the National Rifle Association wanted to reach a younger demographic, Nashville's signature music genre fell in the crosshairs.

"It's no secret," said Vanessa Shahidi, director of NRA Country and special projects manager at the NRA. "If you poll our members, they love country music."

Two hundred or more people signed up to testify. People packed the visitor’s centers on the first floor of the State House.

These estimates were calculated using collected statistics that state, per year, 6.8 percent of active-duty women and 1.8 percent of active-duty men will experience sexual assault.

Active military service members are trained to handle guns. These estimates reinforce the idea that people who are highly trained weapons carriers and are in an environment where guns are prevalent still experience a high rate of sexual assault.

Ed.: No, U.S. military reservations are gun-free zones.

Throughout my life, I've firmly believed that the continued strength of our great nation depends on Americans working hard to ensure that future generations can enjoy the same freedoms and opportunities we enjoy today.

That's why it is a true honor to welcome the men and women of the National Rifle Association to Nashville for this year's big annual meeting and exhibits weekend!

Wyoming’s U.S. Senators have signed letters to Senate appropriators requesting that they include language to prohibit spending on implementation of the United Nations (U.N.) Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

In the letters, Senators Mike Enzi, John Barrasso, both R-Wyo., and others led by Senators Jerry Moran, R-Kan., and James Inhofe, R-Okla., expressed concerns with both the substance and the process by which the treaty was adopted.

The culture of gun ownership in America is changing.

"We have been in business for five years and we have seen a steady growth in the women in the shooting industry," said A.G. Paul, owner of Sound of Freedom shooting range.

Kelly McGinnis says she didn't get into it to target a trend. She just wants to feel safer.

"There are times maybe you would find yourself in a situation where it would just equalize the situation," said McGinnis.

The bill, Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Education of our Streets Act (SAFER Streets Act), would give a $2,000 tax credit over two years for anyone who, like Bango, voluntarily give up their “assault weapon” as defined by the federal government. It was a bill Bango suggested to his Nutmegger representative.

Gun grabbers exploited the Sandy Hook murders in order to introduce lots of bad bills. This bill is no exception.
 

Gun Review: Taurus Curve

It’s hard to describe the Taurus Curve. Caught somewhere between a semi-auto and a revolver, this unique little gun is certainly breaking barriers and causing a stir.

Chambered in .380 ACP, the Curve looks futuristic with its bowing side and rounded edges. With a matte blue finish that seems to resist fingerprints, the Curve is a head turner. Touting a “snag free” design, Taurus USA cut out several external buttons that could catch on clothes.

The first of these to bite the dust is the slide release, so you’ll have to do it manually. Remove the magazine, grab the rear of the slide, pull towards the rear and release.

Many 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls are set to address tens of thousands of Second Amendment rights advocates this weekend at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention.

Notably, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky will be missing from this event – and not necessarily because they don’t want to rub elbows with a key conservative voting bloc.

NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker told msnbc on Wednesday that Christie and Paul were not invited to the event in Nashville, Tenn. “Our event has grown in popularity over the years. Unfortunately, we have a strict time constraint, so we can’t accommodate everyone,” she said.

Q: To begin, can you explain the significance of the Sunnyvale ordinance, and what it does?

A: There are several parts to it. The part that ended up in the 9th Circuit imposes a ban on the possession of large-capacity ammunition magazines, which are sometimes called LCMs for short. A large-capacity magazine is defined in the ordinance as a magazine that's capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition. That's the definition most commonly seen in different laws and statutes. There are a few other parts of the law that weren't challenged in this lawsuit.

In September 2014, the doors of Eastex Guns and Ammo in Crosby were open, but only because the air conditioning had yet to be installed and the store was waiting on approval from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Fast forward to the present and the store’s doors are open for business with former 101st Army Airborne Screaming Eagle Mike Cantrell selling guns almost as quickly as he can stock them.

We have been informed that Senator Ayotte is currently “undecided” on the question of whether or not to vote to confirm Loretta Lynch for U.S. Attorney General. Make no mistake, Loretta Lynch is cut from the same cloth as Eric Holder.

As attorney general, she will advance the same lawless, rabidly anti-gun agenda that spawned the “Fast and Furious” and “Operation Choke Point” scandals.

California Attorney General and U.S. Senate candidate Kamala Harris (D) has decided to defend a century-old ban against handgun advertising that likely violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution–as a way of violating the Second.

On November 11, Breitbart News reported that a group of California gun store owners had filed suit against a state ban on handgun advertisements.

Call it good timing, but as tens of thousands of Second Amendment activists start heading for Nashville and the 144th annual meeting of the National Rifle Association, President Barack Obama told ABC Wednesday that he “hasn’t given up on gun control.”

This will definitely give NRA leaders something with which to energize the grassroots. One can anticipate lots of discussion on the massive exhibit hall floor starting Friday morning, where hundreds of exhibitors will be showing off guns and gear to an audience that is ready to say “no more.”
 

CA: Self-defense is cause enough for concealed weapon permit

According to the sheriff, in a piece published by the Register, “As a result, I must once again require CCW applicants to articulate their safety concerns and provide supporting documentation prior to being issued a permit.”

But there’s nothing the county’s chief law enforcement officer must do. Under California law, what necessitates good cause for a permit always has been up to the discretion of each county sheriff. Most counties, save for some of the most liberal in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and, now, Orange County, typically impose far less restrictive rules that recognize self-defense as a sufficient cause.

Questions about the limits of Second Amendment rights and the proper role of government dominated the conversation on Wednesday in Augusta as a bill to ease Maine’s concealed firearm law sparked ardent response from supporters and opponents.

Mainers lined up at the State House by the dozens to speak when the Legislature’s Public Safety Committee opened a hearing on LD 652, which would allow any Mainer legally authorized to own a handgun to conceal that weapon on their person or in their vehicle without a permit.

Crimson Trace, the recognized world leader in elevating laser sighting systems to standard equipment status on concealed-carry and personal defense firearms, announces two laser sights for GLOCK’s new Model 43 semi-auto pistol.

The Laserguard–LG-443 (red) and LG-443G (green)—laser sights serve double duty by fitting onto GLOCK’s Model 42 and 43 pistols. The new compact and thin profile GLOCK 43 pistol is designed for self-defense concealment while being chambered in 9mm. To keep the concealed carry characteristics, Crimson Trace’s Laserguard LG-443 and LG-443G laser sights will add little to the pistol’s overall size, profile or total weight.

Yesterday, a Tennessee Senate committee passed a bill to prohibit the state from implementing or enforcing federal gun “laws,” rules, regulations and orders that are contrary to the Tennessee state constitution. The vote was 7-1.

Introduced by Sen. Richard Briggs, Senate Bill 1110 (SB1110) would ban Tennessee state or local public funds, personnel or property from being used for the “implementation, regulation, or enforcement of any federal law, executive order, rule or regulation regulating the ownership, use, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or firearm accessories” if such use “would result in the violation of Tennessee statutory or common law or the Constitution of Tennessee.”
