MI: Michigan House eases penalty for lapsed concealed gun permit
Submitted by: Corey Salo

Michigan would ease up on people who fail to renew their concealed pistol permit under a bill advancing in the Legislature.

It currently is a felony to carry a handgun on an expired license. Legislation approved 90-19 Friday by the Republican-controlled House would loosen the penalty to a civil fine — as long as the permit had expired within the previous year.

A subsequent violation would be a misdemeanor.

Supporters say the current punishment is applied unevenly and is too harsh, because people forgetting to renew their license can get a felony conviction and lose their right to possess any firearm.

Critics say the proposed change is too lenient in light of the seriousness of carrying a deadly weapon in public.
 

MI: ‘Guns for groceries’ event trades firearms for Meijer gift cards

Police will trade guns for groceries in a “no-questions-asked” gun takeback event.

Anyone who turns in a gun will receive a $100 Meijer gift card.

The “Guns for Groceries Community Health & Safety Day” will be held in Muskegon Heights’ Rowan Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 8.

The offer is open to anyone who lives in Muskegon County, since “shootings have no boundaries,” said Muskegon Heights Police Chief Joseph E. Thomas Jr.

“This is community- and people-driven,” Thomas said of the gun takeback event. “That tells me people are now fed up with this crap.”

I hate the media. I mean it, I really do, for lots of reasons. Over the ten years, I've been privileged to be on the nation's airwaves on hundreds of radio stations and heard in hundreds of cities, I've made it clear that I believe the “mainstream media” poses the single, most significant threat to our right to bear arms over and above all others.

In the summer of 2018, there were dozens of bear-related incidents in the North Country, including a recurring campsite raider that was eventually euthanized by the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

DEC advised campers and hikers that it may be prudent to purchase and carry bear spray to help defend oneself in the event of a bear encounter.

But to the chagrin of many, bear spray is essentially illegal in New York.

Your NRA-ILA has learned that anti-gun Illinois legislators are attempting to introduce a new amendment to gun control legislation, Senate Bill 1966. The fee increases and other mandated changes could also make it close to impossible for individuals to obtain the fingerprinting, as well as be able to transfer a firearm. This legislation could be brought up at any time and your lawmakers need to hear from you immediately. Please contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE HA 2 to SB 1966.

For West Virginians, guns are part of ourway of life. The Second Amendment guarantees our right as Americans to keep and bear arms.

Whether for self-defense or sport, our right to own guns is protected by the U.S. Constitution. In Washington, D.C., the new House Majority under the leadership of Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made it a top priority to restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Our way of life in West Virginia is under attack.

A woman in Kaufman County, Texas, shot and killed a home invader Thursday morning, authorities said.

She reportedly woke up after hearing a man banging on her door, according to the the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department. After investigating the noise, she determined she didn’t recognize the man, deciding not to answer him, CBS DFW reported.

She said she heard the man kick in the back door of her house, prompting her to lock herself in her closet and call 911 at about 9:45 a.m., according to WFAA.
 

Kamala Harris and the News Media Don’t Know What They Don’t Know

At a campaign event in Nashua, N.H. Harris herself told those gathered, “I’m announcing for the first time today here with you to take executive action to ban the import of assault weapons into our country.”

Predictably, Harris’s proposal was trumpeted by an uncritical press.

Apparently unbeknownst to the candidate and her media sycophants, the federal government already prohibits the importation of so-called “assault weapons.”

Under the Gun Control Act of 1968, the Attorney General has a measure of discretion regarding what firearms may be imported into the United States.

There have been some handguns over time that have been considered legendary by their design, the Colt Single Action Army, the 1911 Government Model, the Glock, and then there are those that have come and gone without much notice even though they were innovative and ahead of their time. One such gun was the Smith & Wesson New Departure Safety Hammerless revolver.

Sometimes, even in this hyperbolic age of partisan media madness, the most impactful events are lost on the public and obscured in legal details.

The Second Amendment case the U.S. Supreme Court has opted to hear, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. New York, is such a situation.

In the past few weeks, the list of “friend-of-the-court briefs” (what lawyers call “amici curiae”) attached to the case has grown substantially. Even the U.S. government has chosen to give its legal opinion to the justices.

Does a gun in your home make you safer, or does it put your family in greater danger? That is a great question, but we don’t have easy answers. There are risks if you have a gun and risks if you don’t. To further complicate the question, your situation is different than mine. You have to weigh both sides to know if you’re safer being armed.

What we are about to talk about is something that may annoy some of our loyal readers here at Ammoland. Well, ignoring this potential situation is something that is not in the best interests of securing out Second Amendment rights in the future. In fact, not discussing what to do in this situation is one of the biggest helps we can give to the likes of Michael Bloomberg.

Ever since taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives, Democrats have been waging an unprecedented assault on the Second Amendment. Led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.), the caucus has been an entity in virtual lock-step promoting a laundry list of today’s most popular anti-gun proposals. Whether it is banning semi-automatic firearms and placing limitations on magazine capacities, pushing “universal” background checks, imposing potentially endless waiting periods, or trying to use financial institutions to drive their political agenda, anti-gun Democrats are looking to exploit every opportunity they can to promote their attacks on our freedoms.

The case was brought by a coalition of constitutional rights advocacy groups including Firearms Policy Coalition, Firearms Policy Foundation, Second Amendment Foundation, The Calguns Foundation, Madison Society Foundation, and Riverside County resident Arie van Nieuwenhuyzen, a permanent resident alien who has lived in Riverside since 1983 and is a business owner there.

“We’re delighted with the outcome of this case,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “This isn’t our first experience with such a policy, and we’re happy to have had good partners in this challenge."
