MI: Woman shoots carjacking suspect on Detroit’s west side

A woman shot a suspect during an attempted carjacking early Monday on the city’s west side, police said.

An armed man approached the 27-year-old woman around 5:30 a.m. on the 11400 block of Auburn, Officer Jennifer Moreno said.

“He attempted to carjack her at gunpoint,” Moreno said. “She pulled her gun and shot the suspect.”

The injured man fled the scene on foot, Moreno said. Police are searching for him early Monday.

“There was blood found at the scene, so she did hit him,” Moreno said, adding it is unclear how severely the suspect was injured.

Police K-9s were called to help with the search, Moreno said.

“Scout cars are checking the area and they’ve cordoned off the area for dogs to search,” she said.

 

The Counted: people killed by police in the United States in 2015

What is The Counted?
The Counted is a project by the Guardian – and you – working to count the number of people killed by police and other law enforcement agencies in the United States throughout 2015, to monitor their demographics and to tell the stories of how they died.
The database will combine Guardian reporting with verified crowdsourced information to build a more comprehensive record of such fatalities. The Counted is the most thorough public accounting for deadly use of force in the US, but it will operate as an imperfect work in progress – and will be updated by Guardian reporters and interactive journalists as frequently and as promptly as possible.

Raising significant new questions about how much protection the Constitution’s Second Amendment actually gives to gun owners, the Supreme Court on Monday left intact a local ordinance that restricts access to guns even within one’s own home. The denial of review drew a fervent dissent from two Justices, who argued that the Court is narrowing the amendment’s “right to keep and bear arms.”

Kevin Landrigan, the dean of statehouse reporters, wrote that this is a dangerous bill to veto. It sure is! The cause of freedom hangs in the balance!

This is the final push, the time is NOW! All law abiding firearms owners must call, fax or email Governor Maggie Hassan and urge her to sign SB 116 into law when it reaches her desk.

Please email Governor Hassan by clicking here and send a copy to NHFC, Inc. by clicking here.

Governor Hassan was recently heard telling a group of fourth graders that she wants feedback from the public because the public elected her. She said she represents the public.
 

6 essential drills for concealed carry

Shooting drills are a pistol instructors’ greatest ally. Often undervalued, these simple exercises strengthen students understanding of concealed carry concepts as well as basic shooting principles.

Over the course of teaching concealed carry and pistol classes, I’ve tested out my fair share of drills. While some fell short of expectations, six drills in particular always make their way into my curriculum. When conducting these exercises, observe all gun safety rules.

For the second time in two months, Governor Christie has pardoned someone convicted of violating New Jersey’s strict gun laws, this time a North Brunswick man preparing to become a police officer whose arrest became a cause célèbre for Second Amendment supporters.

Christie’s pardon — only his fourth in more than five years as governor — comes a week after he told potential voters in South Carolina that he supports letting more people carry concealed weapons even though his administration fought in court to prevent that.
 

Obama’s “Unified Agenda” of Regulatory Objectives Causes Fear, Confusion

The Internet has been buzzing this past week with stories of the Obama Administration’s “Unified Agenda” on gun control.

An article published in The Hill magazine, for example, sported the ominous headline, “Administration preps new gun regulations.” It stated, “The regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements. Chief among them is a renewed effort to keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable or have been convicted of domestic abuse.”
 

Open Carry: the New Normal. So How Should Folks React?

When I was growing up on a series of Marine Corps bases across the country, the phrase “man with a gun” was comforting, not scary. Yet as the anti-gun movement gradually took control of the public debate, it became not just frightening — especially to those who knew nothing about firearms — but a matter for instant police action. Today, with open-carry laws proliferating — Texas is about to adopt open carry — the sight of a civilian packing heat may be the New Normal. But what are the etiquette rules so we don’t frighten children, horses and the Pansy Left?

Texas Governor Greg Abbott now has his chance. On Sunday, May 31, the campus carry bill proposed in February by state Representative Brian Birdwell passed the Senate and is now on Abbott’s desk, waiting for his signature. He promised that he would “sign any bill that expands gun rights on campus.”

Once the bill is signed, students with concealed carry permits would be able to lawfully carry on the campuses of “all institutions of higher learning” in the Lone Star State, starting September 1, while the effective date for community colleges is August 1, 2017.

This was followed by the NYPD reporting a 19.5% increase in City homicides during the first five months of the year.

Now, according to WABC News Ch. 7, felony assaults on the subway are up 27%.

Consider it "Iowa Legislature 2015: The Sequel."

A host of issues that died in the 2015 session will likely receive a renewed push in 2016, including efforts to raise the minimum wage, legalize fireworks and expand Second Amendment rights, legislators and lobbyists say.

"Every session we leave, we leave something on the table, so there's always something to come back in and work on," said House Speaker Kraig Paulsen, R-Hiawatha. "That's just the nature of the business."

So, there is no reason to believe the Second Amendment is immune. Sentiment to renounce the Second Amendment can easily reach an equal level. Even now, we see bogus “gun-safety” arguments used to justify draconian restrictions on gun ownership in NY, NJ, CA, MA and other states and metro areas.

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected efforts by gun owners and the National Rifle Association on Monday to halt San Francisco’s enforcement of a 2007 ordinance requiring residents to keep handguns locked when stored at home.
The action, over the dissents of Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia, was another step in defining the limits of the high court’s 2008 ruling that said the Constitution guarantees the right to possess guns at home for self-defense.

If the facts of the San Francisco case sound familiar it is because they correspond so closely to the facts at issue in the Supreme Court's 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller. In that decision, the Court voided not only D.C.'s ban on handguns, it also voided D.C.'s requirement that all firearms kept at home be "unloaded and dissembled or bound by a trigger lock or similar device." According to Heller, the Second Amendment protects the right of the people to keep a "lawful firearm in the home operable for the purpose of immediate self-defense."

Spearheaded by Sen. Brian Birdwell and Rep. Allen Fletcher, Texas Senate Bill 11 marks another step in the steady march of states choosing to legalize the carry of concealed firearms on college campuses.

Despite legislative stalling and last-minute amendments, the efforts of gun rights organizations from across the state and country paid off in the removal of the statewide ban on campus carry. Contrary to the fear-heavy rhetoric from the bill's opponents, Texas is far from the first state to allow firearms on college campuses. Campus-carry laws are already on the books for universities in Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Oregon, Utah and Wisconsin.

We all have our hopes for the future. In that regard, we’re not so different from Senators Edward J. Markey and Elizabeth Warren (both D-Mass.).

Where we’re just a little bit different, however, is that while we recognize some people might wish to replace travel by automobiles with on-demand flight via pollution-free unicorns, we’re not sure a law to that effect is really necessary. Similarly, while some people might want guns to be designed like “Kitt,” the talking car in the David Hasselhoff series “Knight Rider,” it takes a special kind of dreamer to turn that dream into federal legislation. Enter the senators from Massachusetts.

On Saturday — the same day Browder killed himself — Paul implored a crowd in Concord, N.H., to “think about Kalief Browder and think about how his friends must feel about American justice, how his parents must feel and about how his community feels.”

"If we become the party that cares about the Sixth Amendment as much as we do the Second Amendment, we’re going to dominate,” said Paul, who is running for president, according to The Washington Post.

Arkansas Act 746 is very clear. There has not been one successful prosecution in Arkansas for carrying a handgun for self-defense purposes only since Act 746 took effect in August 2013. Hundreds of law-abiding women and men have open carried and concealed carried without a permit in plain view of law enforcement across the state without facing arrest. State office holders are proclaiming Arkansas as a Constitutional Carry state. Even the anti-gun University of Arkansas School of Law has stated that the legislature passed permit-less carry with Act 746. Prosecutors are refusing to prosecute any citizen who is arrested under this law.
 

Five Reasons To Reconsider The Ruger Mini-14

When it comes to .223 Rem. semi-automatic rifles, Ruger’s Mini-14 has long been one of the obvious choices. And it’s no wonder, considering it offers nearly the same handiness as the M1 Carbine, the ballistics of the AR15, and the feel of the classic M1 Garand and M14. The Mini’s popularity confirms its strong perceived relevance among a wide range of users, and sustained sales for more than 40 years is evidence of its sound design—even if it’s unfairly judged by the same criteria as today’s predominant platform, the AR, which enjoys the huge advantages of U.S. military adoption and unlimited manufacturing sources.

When student Adam Miles, president of Students for Concealed Carry-University of Memphis, brought the National Rifle Association to his campus to give a presentation, he wasn’t sure what to expect.

As a self-described “diehard advocate for the Second Amendment,” he acknowledged he likes to convince people to accept gun-ownership rights, but not by strong-arming them. To that end, the NRA presentation surpassed his expectations.

Say goodbye to handgun registration in and around Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed Senate Bill 175, abolishing Clark County’s “blue card” handgun registration system while ushering in a host of other pro-gun changes to state law.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's. — Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp
