Chief Deputy John Depresca said Scott, 69, took a severe beating before grabbing a gun for protection.

“When Mr. Scott refused to make the loan, Harper, his stepson, began punching him in the mouth knocking loose several teeth and injuring his nose and lips,” Depresca said.

Harper then left the room and told Scott he was coming back to beat him further. Scott retrieved a .38 Taurus and told Harper to not hit him anymore, Depresca said.

“Mr. Harper drew back to hit him again and Mr. Scott fired one shot in his leg,” Depresca said.
 

FL: FL Attorney General’s Office Tries Again To Scuttle Open Carry Ban Case

Once again the anti-gun elements in the Florida Attorney General’s office are attempting to scuttle the appeal in the case of Norman v. State.

The Norman case is the only viable case in the country arguing for recognition of the constitutional right to open carry.

Since the appeal was first brought, the West Palm Beach Office of the Attorney General has repeatedly attempted to derail the case based on procedural arguments that the lower court did not properly certify its questions of great public importance.

The NRA thinks everyone has a God-given right to own any kind of gun. I disagree. I am not opposed to gun ownership. Anyone who wants a gun for hunting, target shooting or self-defense should be able to own a gun. However, automatic and semi-automatic assault weapons are made for one purpose — to kill people. They are weapons of war and civilians should not have them.

Any person wanting to buy a gun should undergo a background check, including checking their social media comments.

If a person has a criminal record, is in therapy for a mental disorder or has made threats of violence, they should not be allowed to buy a gun. Every person who buys a gun and their family members should be required to take a course in gun safety.
 

NY: Legislature Close to Adjournment, Anti-Gun Bills Still in Play

The moment that all law-abiding New York gun owners eagerly anticipate each year is nearly upon us — adjournment of the New York Legislature for the year.

State lawmakers are tentatively trying to conclude the 2014 legislative session today but the waning hours are a dangerous time when scores of bills are quickly and quietly passed.
Accordingly, it’s important that you contact your state Senator immediately and let him or her know that you are still watching for anti-gun action in Albany and are opposed to a pair of proposals that continue to have life. Anti-gun activists and legislators are still working diligently to push these bills through before the clock expires.

That prefatory “well-regulated militia” phrase was considered self-explanatory by most state and federal courts for two centuries. Militias and militia duty withered away in the decades before the Civil War. The right to arms lived on, but the courts did not see in the Second Amendment any bar to state or local gun control regulations. Waldman’s readable, often chatty, thoroughly documented recounting of the Second Amendment’s history shows it changing in character as American society changed. As handguns became more available starting in the early 19th century, more people saw them as a means of self-defense or self-­empowerment.
 

U.N. on ‘Collision Course’ With Second Amendment

SAF Operations Director Julianne Versnel told the committee that “the POA and other UN efforts repeatedly and vociferously discuss gender issues.”

“They acknowledge that women are disproportionally the victims of horrendous violence, sometimes even perpetrated by their own governments or others in power,” Versnel said. “Yet, they turn a blind eye to the reality that women have a right to defend themselves and are capable of doing so. The Programme of Action seems unable to acknowledge anything beyond the simplistic notion that civilian firearms are inherently evil. The right of women, indeed the right of men and women, to self-defense is a human right.”
 

AZ: Montini is out of touch over priest with pistol

Republic columnist EJ Montini would deny priests both the right and means of self-defense. He would do so even at the moment they are being attacked by a violent psychopath intent on killing them.

Then, he cites Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted's "let the pregnant mom die; her other kids don't need a mother" edict to St. Joseph's Hospital as a moral guidepost for others to follow, rather than the heartless abomination that it was.

Florida's stand your ground law became a national conversation when police cited the law as reason why Zimmerman wasn’t initially charged with Martin’s death and it was also the reason why he was found not guilty of second degree murder.

The self-defense law allows deadly force with no duty to retreat.

TV Judge Glenda Hatchett joined the National Pastors’ Task Force to say stand your ground needs to be amended or repealed.

“If I can leave the situation and get myself out of harm’s way, then I ought to move,” she said. “I should not stand here and say, ‘I’m not moving and I’m gonna shoot you and you're unarmed.’”

She also said they're terrorizing Americans.
 

What happened to the Second Amendment at the U.S. Supreme Court this year?

The justices are rarely hesitant to wade into any hot-button legal issue, including guns. Six years ago, the court made headlines when it ruled for the first time that the Second Amendment guaranteed an individual right to own a gun. The court expanded on that decision two years later, but this term, despite numerous invitations and opportunities, the justices went out of their way to avoid the right to bear arms.
 

GA: Woodstock City Council mulling action on gun law

The state’s new gun law might not have an impact on Woodstock City Council meetings, but council members are still weighing the options.

The Woodstock City Council began considering its options at its meeting Monday on whether or not to allow guns into government buildings, such as the one where council meetings are held. They also discussed whether to use money and resources to screen anyone who enters the building.

The Safe Carry Protection Act, which becomes law July 1, makes it legal for licensed gun carriers to take their weapons into government buildings not screened for guns.

City Manager Jeff Moon explained to the council members the law presents some challenges for local governments.

If you use marijuana in a state that has legalized pot for medicinal purposes, Sen. John Walsh wants to make sure you don’t lose your guns.

The Democratic senator from Montana, appointed earlier this year and facing a difficult race on Nov. 4, has filed an amendment to a spending package being considered on the Senate floor.

Walsh joins libertarian leaning Sen. Rand Paul in attaching a marijuana-related provision to the broad spending bill that includes funding for Commerce-Justice-Science, Transportation and Housing and Urban Development and Agriculture-FDA. But questions are arising over whether the Senate can complete work on the package because an agreement on amendments remains elusive.
 

WA: Culture clash: Should school administrators, staff be armed?

Something of a culture clash is unfolding on today’s editorial page of the Seattle Times and Monday’s editorial page of the Tri-City Herald, with the Eastern Washington newspaper supporting the idea of armed school administrators and staff in the Toppenish School District, and the Western Washington newspaper calling the idea “a disaster waiting to happen.”

Which newspaper editorial board is right? Right now, Washington is ground zero in a gun control battle with dueling initiatives regarding background checks and how invasive they should be to someone’s privacy.
 

KS: Capitol to be open to all legally concealed guns July 1

A bipartisan collection of the Legislature's most powerful lawmakers Thursday declined to impede plans to open the Capitol to all visitors with a concealed-gun permit on July 1.

During the 2014 session, legislators and building employees with the appropriate license could bring hidden handguns into the Statehouse. Tens of thousands of Kansans with the same permit were blocked, but that will change with implementation of new security protocol.
