"There was a guy who was being very brave and another guy with a white baseball cap who he was trying to control and the man in the baseball cap suddenly pulled a gun from his bag," the witness said.

The gun was "homemade" and large, according to multiple reports.

[Submitter note] How could this be in gun-free Merry England?
 

Navy SEAL Says AR-15 Is “Common Sense Choice” for Civilian Defense

Following the tragic shooting in Orlando, Florida that left at least 49 dead, there have been renewed calls for gun control. In this debate, perhaps no rifle has become more emblematic of the struggle between gun rights and gun control groups than the AR-15.

Due to its appearance in past shootings, one of America’s most popular rifles has come under fire from the political left. Calls to take “weapons of war” off our streets have grown louder as these horrific events keep materializing.

This all being said, there has been fierce pushback against these attempts to disarm Americans. As reported by WideOpenSpaces, ex-Navy Seal Dom Raso sat down with the NRA to defend the popular rifle.

An East Tennessee store offered a discount on guns for members of the LGBT community.

Frontier Firearms in Kingston told Local 8 News they would give a 5% discount to customers who identified as gay, lesbian, or bisexual.

Manager John Miller said, "It's a way for us to promote protection for all Americans, it's not that it happened to the Lesbian, gay bisexual community. It happened in America to Americans."

Following the Orlando shooting that killed 49 people inside a gay nightclub, a national gun rights organization with an Arizona chapter sees a big spike.

Organizers from the Pink Pistols Valley of the Sun Chapter say they have seen their membership spike one third of their original size since Sunday.

The group honors diversity and practices self-defense and training. They meet up several times a year.
 

Six books to read to understand the gun debate

Last weekend’s massacre in Orlando, Fla., reignited the debate over gun access in America. Gun-control proponents wondered why shooter Omar Mateen, once included on the FBI’s terrorist watch list, was able to legally purchase his weapons just days before the attack. Gun rights proponents, on the other hand, fell back on a common argument: that arming more “good guys” would have made the rampage easier to stop. This illustrates, once again, how thorny the issue of gun rights has become. Here are some excellent books to read if you want to better understand the debate.

“If, for you, my AR-15 ownership is prima facie evidence of my mental instability, sexual inadequacy, lack of a conscience, or what-have-you, then I honestly don’t care what you think about this issue,” Stokes scoffs, before writing his loving, erotic ode to this gun in a fashion that does very little to dissuade the reader from concerns regarding lack of conscience or sexual inadequacy.

But guns keep getting more lethal. Today’s AR-15 will eventually be supplanted by guns that shoot faster, are easier to conceal, hold more rounds, and do more damage to the human body. High-powered plastic guns that can’t be caught by metal detectors. Ammo that explodes into mass shrapnel, capable of killing a dozen people with a single round.

It is time to destroy ISIS, not the Second Amendment, Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) said Friday when he was asked about President Barack Obama’s renewed demands for more gun control.

“The Second Amendment didn’t kill anybody. Let’s have a conversation about how we destroy ISIS,” he said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC).

NV: Gun laws don't work on people who break the law

I have heard more comments in the past few days that people "don't need assault rifles" than I have heard in the last several years combined! I still find it puzzling that someone can kill that many people and everyone jumps straight to attacking guns.

Why do we not scream to ban vehicles every time someone is killed by a drunk driver? Why are the penalties not harsher for people who drive a vehicle without a license? Isn't that the government's way of making sure people know how to handle a large piece of metal that can travel 100 mph. When this happens we blame the driver, not the car.

All guns kill. Some do so with horrifying efficiency.

In Orlando early Sunday, a heavily armed madman opened fire on the crowd at a gay nightclub. The attack killed 49 people and wounded 53. It also reopened the tortured debate about gun ownership in America, where the Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms. In many states that protection translates into the ability to walk into a store, fill out minimal paperwork and leave with a military-style rifle.

Freedom of speech? By all means, speak your mind. Just be sure to do it in person, or by letter. The Founders never expected people to communicate with phones, computers, television, or radios. After all, any terrorist can get his hands on an iPhone or Gmail account and coordinate an attack. You don’t even have to show ID or explain to the FBI why you need such things.

The cherished freedom of the press? The choice of nouns says it all — the media’s right to publish the news with printing presses shall not be abridged.
 

Cornyn Introduces Legislation to Stop Terrorists from Buying Guns, Protect Second Amendment

This is a similar proposal to one that I offered back in December that garnered bipartisan support. It's a straightforward plan that reflects input from all sides. I think it's pretty reasonable, and it's a good starting point if we're trying to address the real threat of Islamic extremism rearing its ugly head here at home.

Ed.: GOP selling us out again.

A group of state lawmakers this week came together to call for a special session of the Florida legislature to vote on a measure to ban gun purchases by those in the Sunshine State who are on federal watch lists.

Two state senators, Geraldine Thompson and Darren Soto, joined with state Reps. Randolph Bracy and John Cortes– all Democrats from the Orlando area– on Wednesday to call for the action in the wake of the deadly terror attack that left 49 dead.
 

SAF fires back at DHS chief Johnson: RKBA is the original ‘homeland security’

When Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson declared Tuesday that “gun control has to be part of homeland security,” it got the attention of Second Amendment Foundation leaders, and yesterday SAF founder Alan Gottlieb fired back with a blistering rebuttal.

“The threat we face today from terrorism is exactly why the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment,” said Gottlieb, who serves as SAF’s executive vice president. “Every American has the right to self-defense, and for Johnson to contend that infringing on that right is the way to keep the country safe is simply preposterous.”

During a stopover at Harris Stowe promoting his work to expand Pell Grants, Blunt was asked if he favors keeping people from buying guns that are on the “no fly list” or “watch list.”

“I would favor being sure that those people had a right to appeal whether they should be on that list or not,” Blunt says.

...

Blunt says with 1.4 million people are potentially on a terror watch list. He is concerned some law-abiding citizens could find themselves on the list and have a hard time getting off it.

We need your voice! Soon the United States Senate is expected to consider the Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Bill.

A number of anti-gun U.S. Senators will be proposing amendments that will have an adverse impact on your rights as a law-abiding American. We are all united in wanting to stop terrorism. We must, however, oppose efforts that will do nothing to stop terrorist acts, but that will advance old and previously defeated gun-control measures under a new label.

The New York Times is going to tell you exactly who is responsible for the Orlando shooting massacre -- and it is the NRA.

Omar Mateen slaughtered 49 innocent people. He broadcast and pledged his loyalty to the terrorist Islamic State group. The red flags prior to his jihad attacks were numerous.

We don't need the New York Times to tell us who is responsible.

But this time, things might be different. Not because of the record number of people killed in Orlando or because this heinous act was a terrorist attack, a hate crime and a mass shooting. It’s because the victims were part of a social movement with deep organizational infrastructure and political know-how largely unmatched within the gun-control movement. It’s because the attack targeted gays, and their community is organized.

A troubled man who has been tracked by the FBI can walk into a gun store in America and walk out with a semiautomatic weapon that with a magazine that can shoot up to 40-, 50-, 100-times-a-minute without the need to reload.

A person who the government believes is too dangerous to board an airplane can buy that same weapon, too, without a second look.

Anyone can buy that weapon any weekend they want at gun shows across the country with few questions asked, regardless of their background or criminal history or mental state.

An electric baton, is another name for a Stun Gun Baton. They are eletroconvulsive devices that have been used by policemen, military personnel and security guards for many years. But Stun Gun Batons have become a great deal more common as a growing number of ordinary people, like you and me, are using them for self defense.

I'm sure Mr. Smith does not feel Donald Trump's life is more valuable than his life — or my life, yet Mr. Trump, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama, all past presidents and most of the politicians in this country (particularly those screaming for gun control) are protected by bodyguards in one form or another who have AR-15s or their equivalent in their arsenal.

If they are entitled to protection in a form that is commensurate with the bad guys, so is Mr. Smith and so am I.
