"Those attitudes included laughing about double-tapping the open carriers, a term gun owners recognize as the placing of two shots into a target in quick succession."

"A couple years ago, a gun nut I know was 'playfully' asking me why I didn't get a gun and do some target shooting, which he claimed was 'fun,'" Top Commenter Thomas Cleaver recalled. "I asked him 'If I get a gun, will it be OK to shoot you? Don't worry, I've shot and killed people before, and I'm way past getting upset at seeing you lying on the floor with your brains splattered on the wall. Been there long ago.'"

The Erie County sheriff says he's done making public comments about a cellphone surveillance device used by his police agency to gather information on persons of interest.
Sheriff Tim Howard told WGRZ Thursday that he won't publicly discuss the matter any longer because doing so could adversely impact investigations.
A stingray is a device that mimics a cell tower and thereby tricks all wireless devices on the same network into communicating with it.

And this is why we can’t have nice things… Recently two butt clowns walked into a Texas Chipotle carrying their rifles—completely legal in Texas—and happily posed for pictures. Well, a media poop storm followed and in response, Chipotle has asked people not to take their guns into their stores. Before another yummy place bites the dust, why don’t we set a good example instead? Often, you are probably are the only ambassador to the shooting sports people you come in contact have—please act accordingly. I’m tired of a tactless few ruining it for the rest of us.

MI: Detroit Motorists Under Siege in 'Carjack City'

When they pull up to a gas station these days, Detroit drivers are looking beyond the price per gallon at a far more threatening concern: carjackers.
The armed auto thieves have become so common here that parts of the bankrupt metropolis are referred to as "Carjack City," and many motorists fear getting out of their vehicles even for a few moments to fill a tank.
So gas stations are taking steps to protect customers, and the city has formed a special police team to go after suspects. Convicted carjackers will even get their faces and prison sentences plastered onto billboards.

Albuquerque police say a knife-wielding man yelled at officers to shoot him after he allegedly attacked his girlfriend and then slashed the throat of a man who tried to help her. ...
The officers pleaded with the man, but Roseman says the man continued to aggressively approach them.
The officers then fired at the man. He was taken to an Albuquerque hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Roseman says the man has been identified as Ralph Chavez. He did not release the officers' names.
This marks the third fatal shooting by Albuquerque police since the U.S. Justice Department released a scathing review of the agency's use of force. In all, police have had 40 shootings since 2010.

After breaking into an elderly widow’s house twice in a row, two teenagers were killed by an armed occupant, in self-defense. Steven Crider, 17, and Michael Sambrano, 14, were shot in the chest numerous times after breaking in to the widow’s home. Now, the dead thieves’ friends and family are publicly complaining that “it was wrong that they were shot” and that the thieves were just “tryin’ to eat.”
 

FL: Gov. Rick Scott should veto confusing 'warning shot' bill

Three words on the "warning shot' legislation about to hit the governor's desk: What a mess.

It doesn't matter whether you favor Florida's controversial "stand your ground' law or think it dangerous. The most recent tweak to it from Tallahassee has something for everyone.

For starters, there's the potential weakening of the law even though legislators who voted "yay" surely intended to expand it. There's also, as always, a nifty gift or two for the powerful gun lobby, like the part about expunging court records in "stand your ground' cases.
 

MO: Administrators weigh in on guns in schools legislation

While Missouri's legislature failed to advance highly-publicized legislation that sought to nullify some federal gun laws as its session ended last week, the group did send Gov. Jay Nixon a measure that could allow specially-trained teachers to carry concealed weapons in the classroom.

Senate Bill 656 would allow school districts to designate teachers or administrators as “school protection officers” to carry guns or self-defense spray within the school. Additionally the bill would lower the minimum age required to get a concealed weapons permit from 21 to 19, and allow permit holders to carry firearms openly - even in municipalities that ban open carry.

Schools and Guns: It's a hot button issue that we see reopened every time there is a school shooting.

House Bill 2416 being singed into law on Friday means you can bring them on a school parking lot but still not inside the building.

But is the law creating a possible pathway?

Former lawmaker Steve Russell says there's a delicate balance between state and federal laws and for right now this is as far as things can go in Oklahoma.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports one measure will allow people with concealed handgun permits to carry their weapons into restaurants that serve alcohol, but make most of their money from food sales.

The second measure will expand the "stand your ground" law in Louisiana, closing a loophole that would not allow self-defense as a lawful reason for harming — but not killing — an intruder or a carjacker.
 

MT: Fatal shooting: A closer look at ‘castle doctrine’

The castle doctrine is not perfect, and tragic mistakes indeed occur. Yet it is Lee who should consider the alternatives – without the castle doctrine, an intruder with lethal intentions would have the law on his side, obligating us (at best) to flee our own homes or (at worst) to die. This is not only bad public policy, but an affront to human rights. In an imperfect world, we must choose among imperfect alternatives, and it is far better to have the castle doctrine than not.

No charges will be filed against a Church Hill man who shot and killed his brother last winter at Bloomingdale in Sullivan County, with evidence and eyewitness accounts pointing to self-defense. A Grand Jury in Blountville earlier this week found that there was not enough evidence to charge Richard Lane, 57, with homicide in the shooting death of Robert "Bobby" Lane, 55.
 

Smart guns, electromagnetic pulse, and planning for unknown-probability dangers

A high-altitude nuclear detonation can generate an electromagnetic pulse that will basically destroy unshielded electronic circuitry in line of sight — potentially over hundreds of thousands of square miles. There has also been talk of e-bombs, which are nonnuclear devices that could create an EMP over a much smaller area.

The 2nd Amendment is just 27 words long: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." But in that single, awkwardly constructed sentence, Michael Waldman suggests in "The Second Amendment: A Biography," the essence of the United States may be revealed.
 

How not to carry a gun; my first day strapped

With the official first day of summer just around the corner, armed civilians are taking a note from English poet Robert Browning’s playbook, applying the “less is more” approach to concealed carry. Much the same way soldiers fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan appreciate the mantra, “Ounces equal pounds and pounds equal pain.” The strapped civilian must strike a balance among three key factors: firepower, capacity and concealment. No existing weapon excels in all these departments, so it’s up to the carrier to determine which ones are most important to them.
 

Why CC Holders Should Ignore Anti-Gun Signs Posted in Stores

They are popping up all across the country, little stickers on the front doors of businesses, restaurants and retail outlets informing concealed carry holders that they are not welcome to carry their legal firearm inside. But if you are a concealed carry holder you should ignore these attempts to curtail your rights. If you are legally armed, feel absolutely free to enter and patronize those stores with your firearm no matter what these anti-Constitution store owners want.
 

KY: Kentucky legislature clearing way for more gun permits

The number of gun permits issued in Kentucky has quadrupled over the past 10 years, thanks in part to at least a dozen measures the General Assembly has passed to ease restrictions in the state's concealed carry law.

State police issued 59,530 concealed-carry licenses in 2013, a 447 percent increase from the 10,884 that were given out in 2004. More than twice as many people received a permit last year as compared to 2012, when a school shooting in Newtown, Conn., raised fears of tightened gun laws.

Earlier this month, two restaurant chains – Jack in the Box and Chipotle – caved to mounting pressure from anti-gun groups to discourage patrons from carrying firearms inside any of their respective locations.

For the former, that decision has apparently proven to be an enticing move for potential criminals. Much to the chagrin of gun-grabbing activists, the fast food chain’s move to ban weapons has coincided with three separate incidents involving armed criminals within a two-week period.

In Nashville, Tenn., a man was shot after he declined a black male’s attempt to sell him drugs. The suspect got away after firing two shots and injuring the victim’s leg.

The New Jersey State Assembly passed a bill to limit the number of rounds in a gun magazine to 10, down from the 15 rounds that magazines can currently hold.

The bill passed 44 - 34 and will now go to Gov. Chris Christie for his consideration.

Mark Barden, who lost his 7-year-old son Daniel in the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, was present for the vote. Barden, his niece, Lauren O'Neill, and Neil Heslin traveled to Trenton to back the bill. Heslin's 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was also killed in the shooting.
 

GA: New gun law won’t impact most of us

Maybe both sides are right and wrong.

First, the bill only applies to those who have a Georgia carry license. Just because you own a gun won’t give you the right to carry it into a bar or a city hall unless you have a permit. And bars have the right to ban guns on their premises while churches have to give permission for guns in their places of worship.
However, critics point out that having a permit under this law won’t mean anything. Another provision of the law prevents law enforcement officials from stopping and asking someone carrying a gun if they have a permit.

Norcross police chief Warren Summers gave a good example of this dilemma in a recent CNN column:
 

Top states for gun rights: Oregon, Idaho beat Washington

Guns & Ammo magazine yesterday posted an on-line rating of where the states stand on gun rights, and surprisingly Washington, where well-financed anti-gunners complain that the laws need to be tightened, is in the bottom third, while Oregon and Idaho are ranked No. 29 and 30, respectively.

The best state for gun owners is Arizona, where it is legal to carry openly or concealed without a permit, where all carry permits are honored, and where it is legal to own full-auto firearms and there are no magazine limits. Washington, meanwhile, is rated 39 out of 51, including all the states and the District of Columbia.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
...If a man lies under oath or procures the lie of another under oath, if he perjures himself or suborns perjury, he is guilty under the statute law. Under the higher law, under the great law of morality and righteousness, he is precisely as guilty if, instead of lying in a court, he lies in a newspaper or on the stump; and in all probability, the evil effects of his conduct are infinitely more widespread and more pernicious. — Teddy Roosevelt - May 12, 1900
