MI: Woman who shot 5 burglars: 'Protect what's yours'
Submitted by: Corey Salo

A 34-year-old woman who opened fire on five home invaders was recovering Wednesday from a gunshot wound to her leg as Detroit Police investigated the incident.

Police are unsure if any of the four bullets Dietta Gueye fired hit the burglars, so they're monitoring hospital emergency rooms to see if anyone shows up with unexplained gunshot wounds, a department spokeswoman said.

Meanwhile, Gueye said she's relaxing at home, still amped up from the previous day's events.

Gueye said she was asleep in her home in the 12400 block of Whitehill when she heard a tap at her window at 2:37 a.m. A second tap was followed by the sound of glass shattering. When she pulled back her blinds, she saw an armed man standing outside her window.
 

Lawful Purpose & Self Defense Act, HR2710 Would Modernize the Gun Control Act of 1968

The bill would revise the Gun Control Act of 1968, as amended, to replace the “sporting purposes” and “sporting use” sections with modernizing language used to better define whether firearms and ammunition can be lawfully imported, possessed and transferred. NSSF considers the “sporting purpose” and “sporting use” provisions to be outdated and a hindrance to bringing lawful products to market. The 2008 Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller noted that the core purpose of the Second Amendment is self-defense, and the language of H.R. 2710 will more accurately reflect this core meaning of the right to bear arms.

Which brings us to the latest attempt by the United Nations to create one world order. The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

The US Department of State just published a notice in the Federal Register that could ban you from posting or discussing anything related to guns or ammunition without getting the OK from the federal government. Don’t get the OK and it’s $1 million and 20 years in jail.

The NRA has noted that “gunsmiths, manufacturers, reloaders, and do-it-yourselfers could all find themselves muzzled under the rule and unable to distribute or obtain the information they rely on to conduct these activities.”
 

NJ: Do NJ gun laws effectively protect the public?

This morning on air we discussed the tragic story of Carol Browne, the New Jersey woman who was murdered in her driveway by her ex-boyfriend. Browne had a restraining order against the man and planned on keeping a firearm for self-defense, but obviously did not receive the legal go-ahead to do so in time.

Many callers expressed their disgust with Garden State gun laws, saying that they criminalize law-abiding citizens. We also discussed the irony that had Browne obtained a firearm legally and then used it to protect herself in this situation, by virtue of state law, she still could’ve been tried for shooting her attacker outside her home.

By the time his 15-minute stump speech is over, he has delivered a tutorial about the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Ninth and 10th amendments to the Constitution. “We Republicans won’t be successful as a party,” he says, “until we support the entire Bill of Rights as enthusiastically as we support the Second Amendment”–that is, the right to bear arms.
 

NY: State Senate passes bill repealing parts of controversial SAFE Act; Sen. Griffo pleased

Legislation repealing parts of the SAFE Act passed Monday in the Senate including repeal of the database program requiring ammunition retailers to register with the state.

Sen. Joseph Griffo (R-Rome), who represents Massena and Potsdam, says he has always shared a strong belief with many constituents across his district that the governor’s SAFE Act is a flawed and overreaching policy that was rushed into implementation in 2013 without any input from law-abiding gun owners. He said the law was tasked with certain authorities without knowing relevant facts at the time, and therefore Griffo believes the Senate’s vote to revise the SAFE Act is a step toward addressing some of the most egregious provisions.

Just when you think our state Sen. Arnie Roblan and his anti-gun Democrat/Socialist buddies in Salem couldn't do any thing much worst than their Senate Bill 941 (Back ground checks that is really gun registration) they made some amendments! If passed, and they will, they would allow you to lend a gun for seven days and you could do the background check yourself by calling it in instead of having to go though a gun store.

Now this is where it gets worse. If, after the person you get an approved back ground check on commits a crime, you will face the same penalty as if you had not done the back ground check at all!

Peruta v. County of San Diego is a federal lawsuit that seeks to overturn California’s system of issuing concealed-weapon permits. Currently, the state’s police chiefs and sheriffs may require applicants to show “good cause” for carrying a concealed gun in public.

Next Tuesday, an 11-judge panel in San Francisco will hear oral arguments in the case.

Peruta and his legal team, which is backed by the National Rifle Association, felt that such discretion is applied arbitrarily and violates the Second Amendment.
 

Beating Back the Trigger Snatch Demon with Wheelguns

Most of the shooting problems I see over the years with most handgun shooters is that they have trigger snatch problems.

This is most evident in right handed shooters with their shots striking low and left.

Left handers will see their rounds going low and right. If they shoot slowly and carefully it doesn’t seem to be as bad. There are a various ways to work on overcoming this trigger manipulation flaw, but one technique that I favor is to practice shooting a double action revolver.
 

Authors of FBI Study Backtrack: Mass Shootings Are Not Increasing

Last week, the two authors of a study the FBI released on September 24, 2014, admitted they “got it wrong” when they “reported mass shootings were on the rise” in America.

Outlets like The New York Times and the Associated Press had seized on the study by Texas State University’s J. Pete Blair and M. Hunter Martaindale as proof that more gun control was needed, while outlets like Breitbart News saw a political agenda behind the report, based on the flimsy criteria used in discerning what was or was not a mass shooting for the purposes of the study.

Connecticut’s decision in 1995 to make it harder to purchase a hand gun has sharply reduced gun-related homicides, a new Johns Hopkins University study shows.

Published in the American Journal of Health on Thursday, the study by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research said the 1995 law resulted in as many as 40 percent fewer homicides by gun.

Daniel Webster, director of the center and an author of the report, said researchers for compared Connecticut’s homicide rate for ten years against those in states that were similar to Connecticut before the state implemented new restriction on the sales of guns in 1995. Those states included Rhode Island, California and Maryland.

Among the 451 women randomly assigned to the program — which consisted of four units covering topics such as assessing risk from acquaintances and engaging in effective verbal and physical self-defense — the risk of rape was 5.2%. The 442 women in the control group — who were only provided access to brochures on sexual assault — faced 9.8% risk of sexual assault.

Gun prohibitionists continue push for background checks

The Everytown appeal asserts that “An overwhelming 92% of Americans support background checks for all gun sales. But under pressure from the Washington gun lobby, Congress has stalled and failed to close the deadly loopholes in the background check system.”

It is not clear where they get that number, but in Washington State last fall, the Everytown-backed Initiative 594 could only garner 59.27 percent of the vote after proponents spent a shattering $10 million to pass it against a far-lower funded effort to stop it.

Here are some shooting and outdoor accessories I've had a chance to work with that will bring a smile to your Father's face.
 

TX: Will guns on campus lead to grade inflation? No

The state of Texas is currently debating the idea of allowing carry license holders to keep their guns with them on college campuses. This subject all too often shuts down thinking, and that is a disturbing fact, considering that centers of higher learning are supposed to be havens of free thought.

One response, written by Jessica Smartt Gullion, assistant professor of sociology at Texas Woman’s University, illustrates what I’m talking about. In “Will Guns on Campus Lead to Grade Inflation,” Dr. Gullion speculates about the possibility of students using the threat of carry guns to receive higher grades than they earned.
 

IL: Gun supporters to protest Tinley Park anti-violence church service

Members of the Illinois State Rifle Association plan to protest Father Michael Pfleger's speech at an anti-violence prayer service Thursday evening at Saint George's Catholic Church in Tinley Park.

The pro-gun groups have asked as many members as possible to show up and are painting the event as a gun control recruitment event. The church has responded by increasing security.

It's not common to see "no gun" stickers on a church door, but the church feels the stickers and sticker and "no poster" signs are necessary when it learned members of the Illinois State Rifle Association plan to protest the speech.

A 40-year-old homeowner shot an alleged burglar - an 18-year-old who later died in hospital - in the German city of Hanover earlier this week.

He told officers he noticed three unknown people on his property in the early morning hours. Seeing that one of the men was armed, he returned to the house for his own gun and fired one shot.

The intruders fled in different directions as the homeowner called the police, who found the man that had been shot.

There was still no trace of the other two men by Thursday.

A police spokesman said that the homeowner had a license for his weapon and that he is now under investigation for suspected manslaughter.

Today’s Seattle Times headlines a pair of crime stories that underscore the inherent failure of gun control while strengthening the argument that so-called “universal background checks” (UBC) as a crime-prevention tool are a myth, and a third report from Arkansas – about a police chief losing his gun – provides the proverbial frosting on the cake.
 

Should felons be able to own guns?

Once convicted felons have served their sentences, they should, with rare exceptions, be able to resume civic life, including recovering lost rights such as voting and serving on juries. But should they be allowed to own guns? Right now they are barred from doing so, but the House recently voted to resume an abandoned program that lets ex-felons apply for permission to own firearms. That gives us pause.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. — Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
