Yesterday, the Utah School Safety Commission met with the press to discuss their policy recommendations which they believe will make schools safer. Unsurprisingly, their list seems to be the same policy ideas being strongly pushed by out-of-state anti-gun organizations across the nation. During the press conference, multiple policies were proposed that would only burden the rights of law-abiding citizens. Those proposed policies included:

One of our most anticipated firearms that made its debut at the 2018 SHOT (Shooting hunting and Outdoor Trade) Show was the Ranger 2 by North American Arms. We had been waiting on this little revolver since the original Ranger debuted 7 or 8 years ago and then seemed to vanish immediately. Thankfully, North American Arms tweaked the design and brought out this long awaited pocket rocket. They were kind enough to send us a sample for review.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd defended the actions of a Fort Meade man who shot and killed one man and wounded two others Monday in a dispute over a missing pit bull named Princess.

Judd said it’s up to the State Attorney’s Office to decide whether charges are warranted in the shooting, but the evidence so far indicates that Charles Peddycoart, 48, was defending his life and that of his girlfriend when he drew a 9mm handgun on his front porch.

A jury deliberating double-murder charges in an El Paso County death-penalty case appears to be weighing whether Glen Law Galloway acted in self-defense in the first of two fatal shootings for which he is on trial.

During Thursday's deliberations, the jury asked for guidance on self-defense and second-degree murder.

After discussing the issue with attorneys in the case, 4th Judicial District Judge Gregory Werner sent back a response that jurors had all the evidence and instructions they need to decide the case. The nine-man, three-woman panel then resumed deliberations.

The Ohio House is preparing to strip away more gun regulations making it easier to use lethal force in self-defense. This comes as the new House leader says Republican members aren’t close to approving new gun control measures.

The gun control bill, which has just a single Republican sponsor, would prohibit people with a history of domestic violence from owning guns and allow guns to be seized from people showing signs of violence – among other things. The bill would also outlaw devices known as bump stocks, eliminate armor-piercing ammunitition and require gun purchases to be entered in state-wide law enforcement database.
 

IL: Deerfield Assault Weapons Ban Amended To Apply To Magazines

Deerfield trustees amended the village's municipal regulation on assault-style weapons for a second time this week. The first amendment to the 2013 ordinance passed in April and changed the law from a mandate that specified semi-automatic weapons be safely stored and transported to an outright ban on possessing them. An amendment passed Monday adds a prohibition on the possession of magazines that can carry more than 10 bullets.

According to village officials, the latest adjustment corrects an oversight in the drafting of the "Deerfield Assault Weapons Ban," which was blocked from being enforced by Lake County court on June 12, a day before it was due to take effect.

Two pro gun groups are making good on their threats to take legal action against the cities of Columbus and Cincinnati over recently passed weapons laws.

Ohioans for Concealed Carry and the Buckeye Firearms Foundation are asking for a preliminary injunction against the new laws, as well as a temporary restraining order, citing violations of state law. Columbus' new laws among other things ban bump stocks and firearms accessories, prohibit the sale of imitation guns to minors, and ban gun sales in neighborhoods. Cincinnati recently enacted similar bump stock laws.

Backers of a mandatory gun storage referendum are throwing in the towel on their campaign while a second, to ban “assault weapons,” is under pressure to qualify for the ballot.

On Wednesday, supporters of Initiative 44, Oregonians for Safe Gun Storage, announced they were suspending their efforts to put their proposal in front of voters. Calling it a “strategic choice,” the group said they were switching to an effort to advocate state lawmakers for a gun lock mandate next year rather than put the issue on the ballot this year.

Seeking to derail two bills that he said infringe on gun owners’ constitutional rights, state Rep. Aaron Bernstine has filed 79 amendments for the House to discuss and debate.

“We’re going to do every single thing that we can do to stop the folks in the anti-gun movement of achieving their goals of removing firearms from law-abiding citizens in Pennsylvania,” said Bernstine, R-10, New Beaver.

Bernstine is a staunch Second Amendment supporter who posted video on Facebook of himself at a gun range shortly after his driveway was vandalized last year and recently tweeted a photo of him and his young son target shooting.

For 10 years, beginning in 2007 to 2017, the Small Arms Survey crunched the numbers.

Karp said researchers relied on surveys, and registration data to gather its statistics. The results Karp and the group found show U. S. civilians own more small arms than people in the other top 25 countries combined.

"The United States is overwhelming. It's the elephant in the room," said Karp.

The organization’s researchers found that there are more than 1 billion legally and illegally owned firearms in the world today, and American civilians own at least 393 million of those guns.

Let's look to the past for some help, and let us concentrate now on those biased researchers who try to find negative data about civilian gun possession. These researchers and writers could find no benefits to gun possession, but neither could they find violence reducing laws. And we know they would have if they could have! It's just that the Black Market always keeps getting in the way of the promised peaceful society.

The slain man was named William Jones, and the woman who killed him has not been accused of a crime, authorities said, as they released additional details Thursday about the case.

According to police, the woman was trying to leave her driveway in the 700 block of North Miro Street about 7 a.m. when Jones blocked her in. Jones then followed his estranged wife as she ran into her home, punching her numerous times.

The woman ultimately pulled out a handgun and fired it three times at Jones, striking him. Paramedics later arrived and brought him to the hospital, but he was pronounced dead there, police said.

He opposes the gun-grabbing initiative that will likely be on this November’s ballot. Jeremie’s philosophy is simple: He does not support any further restrictions on the rights of responsible gun owners.
 

FL: 'Stand your ground' case clear example why Florida must change law

The Sartori case, however, is troubling in three ways the Florida Legislature should address:

Judgment: Before acting in self-defense, you should know you are endangered. "Stand your ground" should require “the danger” to be actual.

Recklessness: A modern, civil society’s laws should punish shooters who fire indiscriminately in the direction of alleged danger. If shooters unreasonably endanger the lives of others, a jury should decide their fate.

Burden of proof: In 2017, the Legislature passed a law requiring prosecutors, rather than defendants, to prove shooters did not act appropriately. Given that many "stand your ground" shootings have no witnesses, such a burden is extremely difficult.

The Tazewell County Board Executive Committee will hold an in-place meeting at the June 27 full county board meeting to consider a rewrite of legislation of a resolution suggested by gun rights advocates to protect the Second Amendment.

But the resolution will not go as far as advocates hoped in that it will not make Tazewell County a Sanctuary County for Second Amendment gun rights or instruct the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Department not to enforce state legislation that infringes against the Second Amendment right of citizens to bear arms.
 

The American Revolution was successful because citizens had guns

They were expected to suffer evils while sufferable, “but when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariable the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

The right of revolution requires the means of revolution, and this is the primary reason why the Second Amendment exists. Normally, the ballot box is the only self correction needed, but they had no intention of forfeiting the right to revolution that they exercised, giving us liberty in the first place. Nor did they assume that future generations would never need the serious self correction they used.

A group of teenagers gathered Thursday in Cedar Rapids to show that not all people their age want stricter gun laws.

The students say they don’t support any additional forms of gun control because it’s unconstitutional.

Andy Bryant, a Marion High School student, said the Second Amendment is the country’s most important amendment because it’s “the backbone of the Constitution.”
 

NY: Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Ongoing War on Gun Owners & the Second Amendment

Few politicians in this country seem to be as hell-bent on stripping away the rights of gun owners as the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo is.

Hardly a week goes by without a new proposal or law being conceived by his office or someone close to him that further proves that gun owners in that state are viewed at as the enemy and that the Second Amendment in his mind is outdated and needs a serious overhaul. Even in an election year, when most politicians are wary of proposing legislation that could be seen as anti-gun, Cuomo has taken more of a “Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!” attitude as he sees himself as invincible and incapable of losing.
 

Time for a History Lesson About Gun Control

Political protest in France prompted Prime Minister Pierre Laval in 1935 to decree firearm registration and repression of the right to assemble. What could possibly go wrong?

The registration records were critical to the Nazis who overran France in 1940, imposed the death penalty for not turning in guns, and conscripted the French police to ferret out violators. Despite the chance of being executed, numerous French citizens did not surrender their firearms.

The very same Pierre Laval became the chief collaborator of the Nazis during the occupation. The newspapers regularly reported the names of gun owners shot by firing squads.
