Kasich did not write the bill, he didn’t even come up with the proposals himself; he had a taskforce of pro-2nd Amendment honoring people from both sides of the political spectrum who demanded be willing to make compromises get together and hash out several items.

Survivors of the Parkland school shooting lay down in "die ins" at two Publix supermarkets Friday to protest the chain's support for a gubernatorial candidate aligned with the National Rifle Association, as the company announced a suspension of political contributions.

The students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shouted "USA, not NRA!" and caused brief delays at the checkout as customers navigated carts around them on the floor. Pro-NRA counter-protesters also showed up at one store, and two men almost came to blows before police intervened.

With emotions swinging from heartbreak to fear, gratefulness to anger, more than two dozen people delivered sharp and sobering accounts about how their lives were forever blistered from two of the worst mass shootings in Texas history.

Some called for more gun regulations. Others pushed back with forceful defenses of the Second Amendment. Some called for metal detectors at the doors of every school. Others said a determined gunman would simply shoot the officers staffing the entrances.

Once again here is another example of why context and content matter. After Noir makes the quote above, the video fades to black and then after a moment Noir pops back into view to make the following statement: “You know that feeling of anxiety that shot through your body when I said the government should pass laws to limit the media’s ability to exercise their First Amendment right? That’s the same feeling gun owners get when they hear people say the same thing about the Second Amendment.” Noir then explains how he does believe that the mainstream media’s over-the-top coverage of these school attacks contributes to copy-cat behavior, but that he is opposed to any government enforcement against the freedom of the press.

In late March, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., introduced the Ammunition Background Check Act of 2018. Wasserman Schultz claimed the act would close an “absurd loophole” by “requiring all buyers of ammunition” to undergo the same sort of background checks that currently apply to the purchase of a firearm from a licensed dealer. The bill would require background checks on both dealer sales and private sales of ammunition that occur at a gun show or are facilitated with an online or print advertisement.

The state law was passed after February’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, reported the Orlando Sentinel.

It’s called a “risk protection order” — a kind of civil injunction — and it also gave police the power to remove a firearm owned by the Orlando student’s father.

From small shops tucked away in strip malls to factories churning out tens of thousands of guns, the arms and ammunition industry now employs more than 7,000 people in Florida, producing a $1 billion economic impact, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association for the firearms industry.

In comparison, the state estimates that tourism supports more than 875,000 jobs, producing $53 billion in wages. Still, only Texas has more gun manufacturers licensed with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

I support the Second Amendment.

Despite what you may hear, almost everyone does.

That’s because it is part of the Constitution, and it would be hard to find any American who does not support the Constitution. It contains seven original articles and 27 amendments, and virtually every American supports all still in effect — including the Second Amendment.

Shelby County may join more than a dozen other Illinois areas to symbolically pronounce itself a “gun sanctuary” in response to various firearm-restriction measures introduced since a series of mass shootings. A similar move by the Effingham County Board directing employees to stop enforcing state laws that “unconstitutionally restrict the Second Amendment” gained national attention.

Iowans running childcare centers remain free to keep loaded guns on the premises without telling parents, after legislators failed to heed the governor’s suggestion that they discuss proposed limits.

Gov. Kim Reynolds last December blocked state regulators' plans to require safe storage of firearms in childcare centers, including those run out of private homes. The regulators also wanted to require childcare operators to notify their clients' parents if guns were present.

State evidence claimed that police dispatch had received multiple 911 calls that night regarding the house on Eagle Trace Drive. Some of them were calls to report the shooting, however they also reported a female caller saying "Domestic violence. Come now."

Missiaen argued that Daly had assaulted his client, slamming Curtis' head onto concrete and the side of the hot tub. It was when Daly returned for a second time that Curtis felt in fear of his life and produced a handgun, shooting Daly.

...,we didn’t say what we think would actually make a difference. Fair enough. Here, then, is a list of several measures that, if enacted nationwide, could not only reduce the risk of more tragedies like the one at Santa Fe High School but also the ones that occur on the streets of Baltimore and other American cities every day.

On behalf of our six million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Adam Laxalt for governor, Michael Roberson for lieutenant governor, and Wes Duncan for attorney general in Nevada.

Based on their track record of proven support for the Second Amendment, Laxalt and Roberson have earned “A+” ratings from the NRA-PVF in the June 12, 2018 primary election. An “A+” rating is the highest possible rating and is reserved for elected officials with an excellent public record on critical NRA issues who have also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.

There is no justification for taking or restricting our privately owned firearms because of the horrible acts of a few deranged or disturbed individuals. Our schools and institutions need to protect their own through sensible but affective means.

We have no problem putting armed guards in our banks, and yet turn our heads and close our minds when it comes to protecting our children with the same.

Why do school shootings keep happening?

The May 20 front-page article “ ‘I was not one bit surprised that it happened,’ ” about the lack of student surprise over the Santa Fe, Tex., shooting, said, “While school shootings remain rare.” Really? There have been at least 17 school shootings this year, including one near Indianapolis on Friday. That’s slightly less than one a week. Maybe a big part of the problem, and a place to begin in addressing this issue, is a mind-set that considers that level of frequency of school shootings to be “rare.”

Much has been said and little done about acts of mass murder by people using guns. In the wake of the latest deaths and what seems to be an unending string of carnage and tragedy, it is time for Rhode Island lawmakers to take some steps.

They can start by following through on recent votes and passing “red flag” legislation that, while providing due process protections, gives the police the authority to take guns away from people who clearly pose a threat to the public of committing violence.
