Top law enforcement officials have filed court affirmations in support of New York’s new gun control law, the SAFE Act, as state lawyers moved to dismiss a federal challenge to the law brought by the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association. Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard and a top State Police lawyer all filed sworn statements as part of over 100 pages filed by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in reply to the suit, which was brought in March in a federal court in Buffalo.

CHARLESTOWN, Ind. – Indiana conservation officers say a southeastern Indiana landowner who spotted a leopard on his property shot and killed it.

Conservation Officer Jim Hash tells the Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky. that the landowner shot the leopard Thursday night north of Charlestown, 15 miles northeast of Louisville.

Hash says the leopard was healthy, so conservation officers believe it was someone's pet. Leopards are not native to North America.

Hash says a permit is needed to keep a leopard in Indiana.
 

Zimmerman trial highlights that protection from self incrimination does not extend to your call to the police.

There is something that attorneys are well aware of; what you say in a 911 or any call, to the police, can and will be used against you. The current Zimmerman trail is a good example of this. He is innocent until proven guilty but his call in to report a suspicious person is being manipulated against him. This is a good lesson for all gun owners to keep in mind. If you have to shoot someone you must be careful how you report it. You look suspicious if you do not report it right away and reporting it when you are not in your best mental state can work against you. So what is a man to do?
 

ID: Company Sells Pork-Laced Bullets To Fight Islamic Terrorists

An Idaho ammunition manufacturer has developed a new line of pork-laced bullets they hope will fight against Islamic terrorists – and keep them from going to heaven.

South Fork Industries of Dalton Gardens, Idaho, took traditional bullets and coated them in pork-infused paint to make them “haram,” or unclean, under Islamic law. The company’s website labels the “Jihawg Ammo” bullets as “Peace Through Pork” and a “peaceful and natural deterrent to radical Islam.”

A bipartisan coalition of 45 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives has again introduced the "Protecting Lawful Transportation of Firearms Act," which seeks to standardize laws regarding the transport of firearms from one state to another.

The same bill was introduced last year with 51 cosponsors but never made it out of the House Judiciary Committee. This year's version, formally introduced by Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va.), Ted Poe (R-Texas), and Bill Owens (D-N.Y.) in March, has also been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.
 

Courts should treat gun rights as liberally as abortion rights

Now, the Supreme Court has also made clear, in the Heller and McDonald cases, that the Second Amendment gives law-abiding American citizens the right to keep and bear arms in order to protect themselves and their homes. Given the existence of this right, and assuming that it is at least as important as a woman’s right to choose (after all, it’s in the Bill of Rights), a quick look at the hoops that one must jump through in order to legally obtain a firearm in Chicago should make clear that Chicago’s regulations are indeed undue burdens on the right of individuals to keep and bear arms.
 

IL: St. Charles officials debate impact of concealed carry

St. Charles officials showed little appetite Monday night for imposing any laws more restrictive than the concealed carry legislation awaiting Gov. Pat Quinn's signature. However, some areas of existing city ordinance may become invalid when the pending state law comes online. At that time, aldermen will also have their one and only chance to regulate assault weapons.

City residents packed the chamber, some wearing Illinois Rifle Association or "I love guns & coffee" shirts. State law on concealed carry would trump anything the city currently has in place.

South Carolina’s welcome to Connecticut gun maker PTR Industries on Monday was as much a gathering to celebrate the second amendment as to celebrate more than 100 new jobs coming to the tiny town of Aynor.

PTR Industries decided to move from its home in Bristol, Conn., after that state passed stricter gun laws in April in response to the killings of 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

At least two of York County's state representatives are packing heat, and they're among a growing number of Yorkers who, unbeknownst to those around them, carry concealed weapons.

Sheriff Richard Keuerleber's office has had to lengthen its counter hours to accommodate an increase in applications for concealed weapons permits.

The five-year licenses allow holders to carry firearms on their person at numerous public places, such as in stores and on the road.

While speaking to liberal activists at the Netroots Nation conference, Lily Eskelsen Garcia, vice president of the National Education Association, declared that supporters of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms are "going to hell," EAG News reported Monday.

“I’m not an ordained minister, I’m not a theologian, but these guys are going to hell,” she said during a panel discussion on curbing gun rights.

Will Amarillo benefit from encroachments on the Second Amendment?

Too early to tell, but attempts to bring gun manufacturers to the Texas Panhandle, if not the Lone Star State, are on target — and warranted — considering the obstacles these legal businesses now face.

To some, it may seem unseemly that Gov. Rick Perry — joined by Amarillo Economic Development Corp. President Buzz David and others — went on what can be described as a recruiting trip to the northeast last week, hoping to convince gun manufacturers to relocate to Texas.

George Zimmerman was fed up with “punks” getting away with crime and shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin “because he wanted to,” not because he had to, prosecutors argued Monday, while the neighborhood watch volunteer’s attorney said the killing was self-defense against a young man who was slamming Zimmerman’s head against the pavement.
 

Time to end the imposed ignorance of guns and the harm they do

The report was issued by a panel of experts called together under executive order by President Obama after Newtown killings. The Institute of Medicine and National Research Council assembled the panel and has set priorities to focus research.

Obama is asking for $10 million in the 2014 budget to fund research. Time will tell if Congress has the backbone to follow through. It has folded before.

Money for such research was halted in the mid-1990s under pressure by the National Rifle Association. Ever since, we’ve been stumbling along as a nation, racking up more than a quarter million deaths by gunfire in the last decade alone.
 

Federal nullification efforts mounting in states on gun rights, pot, other issues

Imagine the scenario: A federal agent attempts to arrest someone for illegally selling a machine gun. Instead, the federal agent is arrested — charged in a state court with the crime of enforcing federal gun laws.

Farfetched? Not as much as you might think.

The scenario would become conceivable if legislation passed by Missouri’s Republican-led Legislature is signed into law by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.

NRA news commentator Natalie Foster takes a look at the various reasons behind female gun ownership, which has grown an amazing 77 percent since 2005 and shows no sign of decline.

Foster tries to get past the idea that women are only interested in guns for self-defense. She says that while that’s certainly a legitimate reason to learn to shoot, she also reiterates that it’s time the world knows that “we like to shoot just as much as the guys.”
 

NY: Bill to permanently allow rifle hunting in Wyoming County one step from approval

A bill to allow rifle hunting permanently in Wyoming County is one step short of approval.

The bill was passed last week by the state Senate and Assembly. It would still need Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signature to become a law.

The law would solidify the right to use rifles when hunting large game within the county. A trial measure was approved in August 2011 and is set to expire Jan. 1.
 

Mayors Against Illegal Guns Inflates ‘Violence’ Stats With ‘Victims’ Shot By Police, In Self-Defense

Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s pro-gun control outfit, recently rattled off a list of names of victims of gun violence at a New Hampshire rally. The event made headlines for the group’s inclusion of shooting “victim” Tamerlan Tsarnaev — one of the guys suspected of instigating the Boston Marathon bombing, who was killed in a shootout with police.

Outrage and public pressure elicited a next-day apology from MAIG, but the slip got 2nd Amendment advocates interested in the other names MAIG was using to round out its list of gun violence vicitms.

Last week, Governor Sean Parnell (R) signed into law House Bill 24.

This landmark self-defense improvement law ensures stronger protections for law-abiding Alaskans from criminals and criminal prosecution if he or she must exercise necessary self-defense measures without retreating from any place they have a legal right to be. HB 24, introduced by state Representative Mark Neuman (R-10), passed in the state Senate on April 11 by a 15-4 vote after approval by the House of Representatives in a 29-4 vote in March. This bill takes positive steps to ensure that the law protects the innocent – not criminals – and will take effect in ninety days.

The gun control debate is certainly worth reopening. But if we’re going to reopen it, let’s not just rethink the politics. Let’s take another look at the facts. Earlier this year, President Obama ordered the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to assess the existing research on gun violence and recommend future studies. That report, prepared by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council, is now complete. Its findings won’t entirely please the Obama administration or the NRA, but all of us should consider them. Here’s a list of the 10 most salient or surprising takeaways.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry, has commissioned a study of first-time gun buyers.

Not surprisingly, most wanted a firearm for personal defense.

While the entire study is only available to NSSF members, their press release has some interesting highlights:

A family doctor in this tattered suburb of Mexico City, Roman Gomez tends to his patients under the constant threat of death from neighborhood thugs.

A squad of state policemen stands round-the-clock guard at the four-story building that serves both as Gomez's clinic and home, vetting all who enter. He wears a bulletproof vest under his medical tunic, keeps a large pistol tucked into his belt, rarely ventures into the street.
