The National Rifle Association is famous for assigning letter grades to politicians based on how they respond to the organization's questionnaire. And this year, the NRA's chief lobbyist in Florida, Marion Hammer, is clearly still fuming over the most recent legislative session, in which lawmakers passed several gun-related reforms in the wake of the Parkland shooting.

It was all about orange Saturday morning at Boca Raton’s Lake Wyman Park. Orange shirts. Orange snow cones. Orange Gatorade. Orange tablecloths. Moms Demand Action, which organized the rally against gun violence, asked attendees to wear orange, because hunters wear that color in the field as a safety measure. Some who didn’t have official gear showed up in University of Miami orange. Close enough.

Although it might have been interesting to see Muslim bakers being forced to bake Mohammed cartoon cakes for Christian clients, we should all celebrate the not-even-close Supreme Court ruling establishing that Colorado bakers cannot be forced to violate their First Amendment religious liberty rights by baking a gay wedding cake.

In one breath we’re told that anti-gun spokes-children from Florida should be admired for their sincerity. Then, we’re told that young men and women under 21 years of age are too immature to make serious decisions and understand the consequences of their actions. That is why they can’t possess firearms.

Which is it? Are they adults, or do some young adults want it one way and some want it the other way?

Consider what people 18 to 21 accomplish.

A Broward Sheriff’s bailiff accused of threatening behavior toward courthouse colleagues was temporarily relieved of duty and his 67 firearms were taken by law enforcement, the agency said Tuesday. In court documents, Franklin Joseph Pinter was described as making threats toward other bailiffs. In May, one bailiff alleged that while delivering documents to Pinter’s courtroom, Pinter told him the defendants weren’t there and that he should “get the f--- out of here” and “All you rats should be exterminated.”

Former ATF agent: Current Gun Tracing System is 'Insane'

When police find a gun on TV they run the serial number through a computer and it tells them who owns it in seconds. The reality is different, slower and more confusing than that.
That’s because decades-old laws limit the technology federal agents can use to trace guns. “The privacy rights of the gun owner have trumped my right not to get shot in the head,” said David Chipman, senior policy advisor for the gun control group Giffords.

Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear it in the news. Instructor Amanda Suffecool joins host Rob Morse to talk about three new examples.

First story- You hear shots coming from inside a restaurant. You left your gun in your car.
Second story- You’re working behind the counter at a small market. You hear a lady scream and you look up. A man is standing behind the woman and he has a knife at her throat.
Third story- You hear your mom shouting and honking her car horn from behind your house. You open the back door. You see a man pointing a gun at your mom, then he points the gun at you.. and fires.

What would you do in these situations? Text and podcast available at the link. (15 minutes)

Teachers and school administrators would be able to ask a judge to remove guns from the homes of troubled students under a first-of-its-kind proposal announced Tuesday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The Democratic governor acknowledged his proposal will run into political opposition from Republicans, including those that control the state Senate. But he said it’s a commonsense way to prevent school shootings and get help to students at risk of harming themselves or others. He said it was a far more effective way of protecting students than arming teachers.

The Burnsville City Council unanimously approved a license for a new gun store, but this one is part of a growing trend of online gun sales. Guns.com owner Tom Hudson told city council members his company is an e-commerce store and it will buy and sell firearms online, but will fully comply with background checks. "We intend to follow the ordinance and we will be compliant and as cooperative as we can be," Hudson said. "We have talked with our neighbors and we intend to be good neighbors, too."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago, and a racist today. —THOMAS SOWELL
