MI: Proposed ban on shooting while high hard to enforce
Submitted by: Corey Salo

A proposal to ban people high on marijuana from possessing firearms is pending in the House, but some law enforcement experts say there are too many questions around how marijuana affects the body to make such a move.

Bills sponsored by Rep. Jim Lilly, R-Park Lake, would criminalize possessing a firearm if a person has more than two nanograms of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) per ml in their blood. THC is the chemical in marijuana that makes you high.

Six states & Canada have set impaired driving thresholds for THC blood levels. None have set such limits on firearm possession, although the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in 2016 that a federal ban on gun sales to medical marijuana patients does not violate the Second Amendment.

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office ruled Thursday the fatal shooting of a 48-year-old Clinton Township woman by a 37-year-old Detroit woman was justifiable, saying the younger woman won't be charged because she acted in self-defense.

Angela McDuell was shot and killed about 7:15 p.m. April 22 outside a liquor store at Hayes and Fordham in Detroit during a verbal argument that included a third woman. McDuell and the suspect knew each other and were previously in a relationship, according to the prosecutor's office.

The three woman were arguing in the parking lot when McDuell allegedly pepper sprayed the suspect, who then went to her car and retrieved a handgun.

MSNBC Reporter Unwittingly Discovers the Importance of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders, seeking to explain how the government could oppress the population to this extent, invoked the disparity of power between the government and the people. In doing so, he unwittingly managed to explain why America’s founding fathers saw fit to enshrine the right to keep and bear arms within the Bill of Rights.

Sanders noted: “You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that is open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolas Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”

Dr. Carter, a social validity researcher, said the survey will continue to run and collect data that can continually be informing people.

“They could be used later on by a school district if they were going to implement some type of preventative technique, they could use that and they would have a valid scale to use,” Dr. Carter said.

Dr. Crews said the results of the survey can also be used to help legislators make good, data-driven decisions.

Promoting the defense of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms of NRA’s more than 5 million members, as well as tens of millions more law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters, is a distinct privilege I cherish every day.

The most amazing thing I’ve witnessed in my more than two decades at NRA is what we can accomplish when we work together. It’s sometimes difficult to remember pro-gun wins due to the 24 hour media coverage directed at the smallest movement on anti-gun measures, but, make no mistake, NRA members and gun owners have accomplished simply incredible political and legal victories.

It would allow a family member or law enforcement official to file a petition for a temporary “extreme risk protection order” against a person who poses a clear and immediate danger to themselves or others. Laws like this one, so- called “red flag” laws, are working around the country to make communities safer.

A new law will take effect on July 1 that provides more legal protections for Hoosiers who act in self-defense.

Gov. Eric Holcomb signed House Enrolled Act 1284, authored by Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, that will give more immunity to people who have to use justifiable force.

Currently, people forced to protect themselves and their families have the right to use self-defense without fear of criminal penalties.

NRA’s complaints regarding the treaty have always been based on its potential effect on law-abiding American gun owners. Those complaints have focused on the treaty’s requirements for end use verification, its sometimes-unintelligible vagueness, its ability to be amended without the consensus of all parties, and its proponents repeated refusals to clarify that it has no effect on the possession of small arms by civilians in the United States.
