Hunters and fishermen would be protected from harassment from people recording their activity under a bill pending in the Michigan House.

House Bill 4340, sponsored by state Rep. John Reilly, R-Oakland Township, would amend the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act to make it illegal to record someone who is lawfully taking an animal or fish. Testifying before the House Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation Committee, Reilly said the bill would protect hunters from being persecuted by activists who record and upload videos online.

“The important thing is hunting is lawful and legal,” Reilly said.

The United States Department of Justice has submitted an Amicus Curiae (friend of the court) brief on the New York Rifle and Pistol Club case. The Supreme Court has agreed to decide the case. It will likely be hearing oral arguments on the case in October of 2019. The brief, submitted by Solicitor General Noel J. Francisco, concludes the Supreme Court should reverse the appeals court ruling and hold the New York City law to be unconstitutional.

There was this 12-year-old boy with fearful, downcast eyes and stiff, robotic movements. He was trying to settle a rifle on a fold-out camp table so he could check his rifle’s zero on a paper target our outfitter had stapled to a box and placed across a sagebrush flat. Around the boy were a half-dozen men, all relatives, teasing him and talking down to him. The boy tried to settle the rifle on someone’s pack on the table, but the men just wouldn’t stop. I couldn’t even tell which man was his father. When the boy finally did shoot, he flinched and missed the box.

Sometimes, karma can come in some unexpected ways. In the case of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, it’s seen in a floundering presidential campaign. The fact of the matter is, she could have carved a very interesting niche for herself, but blew her opportunity to do so.
 

The American Old West: How Hollywood Made It “Wild” to Make Money & Advance Gun Control

Hollywood has a clever way of distorting our perspective on history, and a great example of this is Western film – a movie genre we've all come to love. Cattle rustlers, guns blazing, outlaws running loose, and vigilantes dishing out vengeance indiscriminately. These scenes have become more synonymous with the American Frontier than Winchester and their "Cartridge That Won the West." But these fictional tales have produced more than entertainment for over a century; they've also contributed to an ongoing, subtle push for gun control, all while making Hollywood millions.
 

Carlson at Crosscut: Why Arming Teachers Might Be Good Idea

Veteran conservative Seattle radio personality John Carlson could just as easily have kicked a hornet’s nest when he wrote in his column at the left-leaning “Crosscut” online news magazine that arming school officials “might not be a bad idea.”

According to several reader responses, it’s not a good idea, either. But those are reactions from people who most likely supported two anti-gun-rights citizen initiatives that have burdened law-abiding gun owners with paperwork that hasn’t demonstrably prevented a single crime (I-594 in 2014) and stripped young adults of Second Amendment rights while defining smallbore target and hunting rifles as “semiautomatic assault rifles” (I-1639 in 2018).

On Tuesday a federal judge rejected a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against Washington’s gun control Initiative 1639.
I-1639 took effect January 1, 2019, and UPI reported that it “bans the sale of semi-automatic weapons to anyone under the age of 21.” I-1639 also put an enhanced background check in place for those still allowed to buy commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles and puts gun storage requirements in place, along with penalties for gun owners who fail to comply with those requirements.
 

Social Media Abuzz Over Constitutional Carry Audits

It is generally accepted that the First Amendment allows individuals to record videos of public officials in public places. A prime example of this is videos taken by individuals who have been pulled over by the police as a way to ensure their safety. However, most people would agree this is not an “audit.” Rather, a First Amendment audit is better described as the process of seeking out an interaction with either law enforcement or another group of public officials in an effort to assess the legality of the official's response to recording in public places.

More than a year after a gunman killed 26 in a Sutherland Springs church, the Texas House gave preliminary approval Monday to a bill that would allow licensed handgun owners to legally carry their weapons in places of worship. The legislation — Senate Bill 535 by Republican state Sen. Donna Campbell of New Braunfels — strikes a provision in current law that says handguns aren’t allowed in “churches, synagogues, or other places of worship.”

On Sunday, Swiss voters moved to adopt stricter gun control laws. The measure passed with 64 percent of voters agreeing to the new set of regulations, Reuters reported. The main reason the Swiss moved to adopt the rules has to do with the visa system. Switzerland is currently part of Europe’s Schengen open-border system, despite not being a member of the European Union.
 

FL: Florida Dems Launch Ad Campaign to Stop Counties from Arming Teachers

Democrats lost the fight in the Legislature on the issue of allowing teachers to be armed. Now, the Florida Democratic Party (FDP) is turning to an ad campaign to push minority school districts not to sign off on such a move. It’s the start of a new yearlong ad series by the FDP targeted at minority voters. A bill approved by the GOP-controlled Legislature (SB 7030) allows for school districts to permit teachers to join the state’s Guardian Program. That would enable a teacher to be armed after undergoing a 144-hour training program.

An additional 11 percent of hunters will receive permits for the fall moose hunt this year, but the number of any-deer hunting permits might be reduced by 20 percent because of the high number of does taken last season, state biologists announced Tuesday at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Advisory Council meeting. The IFW Advisory Council unanimously approved the 2,820 moose permits proposed by state biologists in March, the second consecutive annual increase following a four-year stretch when permits were reduced by half because so many moose were killed by a winter tick parasite.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C. S. LEWIS
