My generation of kids from that war and the baby boomers who followed us into the 1960s and the Vietnam War era were the last to be drafted and therefore the last actually required to perform our Second Amendment right to bear arms. We didn’t think using a gun was something sacred, just something we had to do — temporarily. (We didn’t call a rifle a gun, of course, and some still remember the vulgar doggerel we had to recite for the platoon sergeant if we did.)

According to WMC, the unidentified homeowner came home and saw the two would-be robbers inside of his home Friday evening. He described the sequence of events to the local news outlet:

“I see my house being ransacked and the dog was still going hysterical in the cage. When he saw me he notified the other individual that was with him, ‘hey, they are here.’”

The two men pulled out their guns while the homeowner grabbed his assault rifle out of the closet and he began to shoot them. Both men died at the scene.

She said he pushed her to the bed and put a hand down her shorts. In a subsequent interview, the affidavit continued, Corter wept and told police “he basically forced her to do something she didn’t want to do,” and “should not be forgiven.”

He allegedly tried to rape the woman, Fox 13 in Memphis reported, but she broke free, giving herself a black eye in the struggle. She told investigators she kneed Corter in the groin and got to a pistol she kept in the bedroom.

Prosecutors will not charge the man who fired 16 shots from his car in November, killing a driver on State Road 60, despite the fact the victim wasn't armed, according to records obtained by TCPalm.

"Stand your ground (law) eliminated a need to retreat when you’re in a place other than your home," Assistant State Attorney Steve Gosnell said about the decision not to file charges, made this week after a six-month investigation.
 

DE: Ban on military-style rifles fails to clear Senate committee

A Democratic proposal to ban the sale of semi-automatic guns that resemble military weapons failed to clear a Senate committee in Delaware on Wednesday amid strident opposition from gun rights advocates.

The bill failed to get enough votes from committee members after a hearing before a standing-room-only crowd in the Senate chamber, where opponents outnumbered supporters by about 7-to-1.

Democratic Gov. John Carney called for the ban on so-called assault weapons after the February shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead.

Police say 40-year-old Jerry Goff was fatally shot early Sunday morning at a residence west of downtown Des Moines.

Polk County Attorney John Sarcone says the shooting was domestic in nature and a "clear case of self-defense." Authorities have not released the name of the person who shot Goff nor provided details on what led up to it.

The case against a Wyoming man charged with voluntary manslaughter in the November 2017 shooting death of his roommate has been dismissed.

KGAB-AM reports that the Laramie County District Attorney's Office filed a motion to drop its case against Cody Hess, of Cheyenne, citing a lack of evidence. The motion was signed by District Court Judge Steven Sharpe on Monday.

Hess was arrested on Nov. 14 after calling 911 to report that he'd shot and killed his roommate, 35-year-old Michael Robbins.

Should teachers carry weapons onto school grounds? That’s a question one recent North Carolina poll attempted to answer. And a bill that would allow teachers to have firearms in the classroom is now in the Rules Committee of the North Carolina General Assembly. Republican Representative Larry Pittman of Cabarrus County filed the School Self-Defense Act last month.

A common argument in the shooting world for the last half-decade has been whether it’s better to focus on your threat when shooting or focus on your front sights.

The answer is "yes."

OK…so maybe it’s a little more complicated than that.

But as you get deeper and deeper into shooting, you come to realize that it’s not a black-and-white issue.

I understand wanting a small number of guns for hunting or self-defense, but huge caches and assault type weapons make no sense. I don’t think they would succeed in defending ourselves from our own government, nor that that is needed. No cache of assault weapons and ammunition for a “regulated militia” can defeat the US military.

Laws allowing civilians to legally purchase military grade weapons are outrageous and disgraceful. The men and women in government who refuse to enforce sensible gun safety regulations are morally bankrupt. Weapons that are specifically designed to kill massive numbers of people with brutal speed should be contained to the battlefield. The fact that they have made it into the classroom is a national disgrace.

I would encourage students on both sides of the gun debate in Sequim and elsewhere to get together and come up with their ideas on how to solve this out-of-control slaughter that is occurring in our schools and elsewhere.

Firearms regulation is not about taking away your right to keep and bear arms as defined by the Second Amendment.

None of the common-sense regulations that I have seen proposed prohibits a law abiding citizen from exercising the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
 

GA: Cagle, Kemp ramp up differences on guns

The two Republicans running for governor are fighting again over guns. Both Casey Cagle and Brian Kemp have endorsements from second amendment groups. But Cagle has found a vote that, he claims, shows Kemp is soft on gun rights.

Fifteen years ago, Democrats still ran the state Capitol. And back then, two Republicans serving in the state Senate were Casey Cagle and Brian Kemp.

In March 2003, a bill came up in the Senate to loosen gun restrictions during declared states of emergency. Cagle voted to allow a floor vote. Kemp voted to table the gun bill, preventing it from coming to a vote.

CA: Gun shows do not belong at Del Mar Fairgrounds

Gun shows do not belong at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Time is running out and soon they will be gone.

The organizers are looking for a new site because the board which runs the state-owned fairgrounds has signaled that it may raise the minimum age to enter the gun show and prohibit sales of some items. The California Department of Justice (DOJ) is investigating the lack of an eligibility certificate for the actual producers and organizers of the Crossroads of the West Gun Shows.

Related: Safe, legal Del Mar gun show should not be singled out

The First Amendment does not require the fair board to rent to gun shows. The Second Amendment does not require the state to permit the sale of guns wherever the seller wishes.
