"Wait a minute: The AG making it known not to shoot innocent citizens for exercising their lawful rights requires a vote by politicians? What if they vote that it’s OK? And Ohio cops need 'special training' beyond telling them not to?"

Since a madman in Santa Barbara, California fatally shot three people, several states have introduced bills strengthening gun control laws. Many politicians from New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, New Hampshire and California are urging Congress to revisit the discussion on federal gun control laws since no measures passed last year following the Sandyhook school shootings. So far, California, Massachusetts and Chicago’s Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, have introduced the strictest laws, while Rhode Island is purposing a higher tax on the sales of guns and ammunition. Here is a list of measures proposed in the last few weeks:

Gun Control has claimed 41 new victims. Fortunately, it did not claim any lives—just jobs. Century International Arms has been working to bring about $30 million worth of M1 Garands back from Korea. However, the White House has refused to allow Century International Arms to bring our history home.
 

Making up facts about guns

President Obama just can't seem to help himself. Over and over again, he makes exaggerated or false claims about guns and crime.
Last year Obama kept asserting the bogus numbers such as “40 percent of all gun purchases take place without a background check.” Besides the study being based on a tiny survey it was started before the Federal background check law went into effect. Moreover, the 40 percent figure referred to all transfers, not just sales, and the vast majority of transfers took place within families through gifts and inheritances. Then, for good measure, Obama added an extra 4 percentage points to increase the number from 36 to 40 percent.

CA: Desert Hot Springs Debates Police Versus Bankruptcy Path

A California city still burdened by debt payments from its 2001 bankruptcy is struggling to avoid defaulting on those bonds or going insolvent for a second time in 13 years.
A decade after Desert Hot Springs emerged from court protection, it’s again on the brink of fiscal collapse. Officials last night discussed dissolving the 27-employee police department and handing the service over to the surrounding county, the Desert Sun reported. The community of 28,000 in an arid valley east of Los Angeles is at risk of becoming the sixth U.S. city in the past 25 years to go bankrupt twice.

CO: Prosecutor frustrated CO’s ‘Make My Day’ law prevents charges in Facebook feud slaying

“It sticks in my craw to be unable to hold Joseph Hoskins accountable for his actions,” Hautzinger said. “But it’s not a very close legal call.”

At least 22 states have expanded the “castle doctrine” allowing a person to defend their home against attack, although Colorado was not among them.

Those broadened laws do not require a person to retreat during confrontations outside the home, placing an increased burden on prosecutors to prove self-defense did not occur during shootings.

Colorado’s law offers immunity to homeowners who shoot and kill intruders, and is one of the strongest of its kind in the nation.

Ed.: The commentors are really dishing it out to the prosecutor. :-)
 

FL: Safekeeping of weapons a much-debated police tactic

“If someone consents to a turnover of any sort of property, for safekeeping, that is one thing,” Sean Caranna, Executive Director for Florida Carry, Inc., said. “But, to do so without a court order, we have some pretty big due process issues with that.”

Florida Carry is a nonprofit Second Amendment advocacy organization. The group has sued police agencies around the state of Florida for pre-emptively seizing firearms.

“There is not a Second Amendment right exemption to the Fourth Amendment,” Caranna said. “You do not have a constitutional right to own a television, yet no one will take it from you without the proper consent because it is your property.”
 

Mastery Of Metals: Federal HST And Guard Dog Loads

The reality is that, to date, there is no conventional personal-protection projectile available to “civilians” that performs optimally “across the board”; a bullet that is intended to maintain its integrity—for sufficient penetration—even when encountering difficult-to-defeat barriers, such as automobile glass, cannot be expected to exhibit the same traits as one designed to expend most of its energy in a soft target, even wallboard, to reduce damage from over-penetration or a miss. As such, it’s prudent for an ammunition company to offer multiple loads with distinct performance parameters. That’s exactly what Federal Premium did with HST and Guard Dog Home Defense.

What truly sane person wants or needs to own a multiround assault rifle or a massive hip cannon. Hello, folks, this is the United States of America, not some primitive Third World country beset by ignorant armed fundamentalist terrorists.

I don't think my father flew three tours of combat over Europe in World War II in order to make America safe for this.

Owning a weapon for self-defense requires proper training, maturity and common sense.
 

The NRA is wrong: Guns kill children

Despite harrowing tragedies like Caroline's death, the National Rifle Association is committed to expanding firearm ownership among children. The NRA's recent convention in Indianapolis included a "Youth Day" to promote firearms for children, an event from which the media was banned. For years, gun manufacturers and the NRA have marketed firearms to children ages 5 to 12, insisting that programs such as the Eddie Eagle Safety Program ensure the safety of children. If they truly believe this, they are mistaken.

To Evergreen State gun rights activists, the thing that matters Wednesday morning is what Clinton said about them Tuesday during the “Town Hall” live broadcast. She was asked about guns and was not shy about offering an opinion.

“We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said.

Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal featured a stunning display of candor from the man it described as “the face of the gun-control movement” for billionaire anti-gunner Michael Bloomberg, who acknowledged as he stepped down Friday as head of the ex-mayor’s gun control effort that, “when a mass shooting happens…nothing that we have to offer would have stopped that mass shooting.”

There are more than a few raised eyebrows in Eastern Washington over Congressional candidate Clint Didier’s offer to give away three firearms, reported yesterday by the Tri-City Herald and today by the Yakima Herald-Republic.

Didier, a former NFL player whose team, the Washington Redskins, just had their trademark of that name cancelled by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, is a conservative Republican living in Eltopia. Nowadays, Didier is a farmer, and only one of several people running to succeed retiring Congressman Doc Hastings this fall.

A Roman Catholic priest responding to a break-in at his downtown Phoenix church grabbed a handgun that police say ended up in the burglar's hands — and was then used to kill a fellow priest who tried to help.

The Diocese of Phoenix has no policy on priests carrying guns, but the deadly burglary raised questions about the wisdom of clergy possessing weapons, no matter how dangerous their mission.

A 911 call goes to voicemail during a home intrusion resulting in a robbery and one man being shot. The incident happened in Port Richey, Fla. in the middle of the night last week where four robbers broke into a family's home not once, but twice on the same night. In a June 17 report out by Huffington Post, the homeowner called into 911 after he was awaken by intruders beating him up.

After a night of drinking at a party in the western Colorado city of Grand Junction, Cook and another man went to fight Hoskins outside his house. The fight moved inside and to Hoskins’ bedroom, where the homeowner said Cook tried to snatch away his shotgun. Hoskins tackled Cook and shot him, according to Hoskins’ account of the night, which was relayed to investigators through an attorney.

...

“It sticks in my craw to be unable to hold Joseph Hoskins accountable for his actions,” Hautzinger said. “But it’s not a very close legal call.”

Ed.: This anti prosecutor is upset he can't throw a homeowner in jail for defending himself inside his own home!

“He walked up to the counter, laid the knife on it and said ‘Empty the register,’” Pitaniello told the paper.

“I knew his intentions as soon as he came in,” Pitaniello said. “When he told me to empty the register, I cocked my head and said ‘Really?’”

But Pitaniello had something ready for the man – a .380-caliber handgun hidden behind his back.

The man picked the knife up and waved it in Pitaniello’s face.

Pitaniello replied with words and a pointed gun.

“I told him he better get the (expletive) out of there,” he said.

The would-be robber listened and left.

“When, in fact, you’re in a place where you’re legally allowed to be, you have no duty to retreat if you’re attacked. You have a legal right to defend yourself,” Fischer said.

The reference wasn’t lost on school board members, including Fred “Fel” Lee, who asked Vitti how other districts handle Stand Your Ground laws in schools, “which is basically what we’re talking about,” he said.

“We’re taking Stand Your Ground… and I think there are aspects of it that can be considered, but I do think the way we address situations has be framed in the educational context and that we’re dealing with children,” Vitti said.

When you are armed and in public, you avoid troublesome situations and walk away, or run away from dangerous surroundings. There is no good time to use your weapon because anytime it is used, you will have a drastic change in life. Chances are you will be arrested until police investigate. You will need a lawyer and spend a lot of money. You will always be the person who shot that person.
 

KS: Kansas Statehouse visitors could soon bring handguns

Visitors to the Kansas Statehouse will be able to bring a concealed handgun beginning July 1 if they have a permit, unless a committee of legislative leaders decides before then to keep the Capitol’s current security measures.

Last year the Legislature passed a bill to make it legal to carry a concealed weapon in public buildings unless they are equipped with metal detectors and security guards. That law, which has already gone into effect in municipalities across the state, also applies to the Capitol and would take effect July 1.

That is unless the Legislative Coordinating Council, which is chaired by House Speaker Ray Merrick, R-Stilwell, determines that the Capitol has adequate security measures.

Police Officer Jerry Bledsoe sent a written apology to Second Amendment advocate Jordan Klaffer, and agreed to pay damages, court costs and attorneys’ fees. The Village of Kelso, where Bledsoe works, also assured Klaffer in writing that they will instruct police officers to not seek court orders to censor individuals who are critical of police officers’ actions. In response, today Klaffer and the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri asked the United States District Court to dismiss the First Amendment lawsuit filed in February on Klaffer’s behalf.
