AR: What's 'reasonable'? For police, the answer is often their legal defense.

Still, if the spare story we've heard is right, a likely legal defense for Davis — whether he's charged or only subjected to departmental discipline — has already emerged: reasonable belief. Arkansas law, as Scott Shackford reports at Reason, permits "the use of deadly force as self-defense in situations where a person 'reasonably believes' the other person is about to commit a violent felony or use unlawful deadly force. There is a duty to retreat in the law, but law enforcement officers are specifically exempt."

Late last Thursday night, a man visiting Lake Tahoe returned to the home he was renting with a group of people when he heard sounds coming from the second floor. He grabbed his pistol.

While the group was out, a large female black bear had entered the house through a sliding glass door, looking for food to eat in the kitchen upstairs.

The man told authorities the bear attacked and, at one point, had her mouth on his arm. He “shot [the bear] in the head at point-blank range,” an official said.

A woman was killed during a home invasion in Modesto in what investigators are calling an act of self-defense.

Sgt. Luke Schwartz of the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Office said detectives are currently investigating the home invasion, which happened around 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 29, at a home along the 3900 block of Blue Gum Avenue in Modesto. That area is in a rural part of Modesto, with few homes and lots of farmland.

During the investigation, law enforcement learned a woman attempted to break into the home occupied by an elderly couple by "smashing a sliding glass door with a fire extinguisher," a press release from the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Office says.

Here is where the most critical choice of your future with regards to firearms must be made. If you answer “YES” because you have a medical marijuana card, the dealer cannot proceed with the sale, and you leave without the gun. If you have a medical card and answer “NO” you have just committed perjury on a Federal form. The penalty for this offense is 5 years in a federal prison and a $10,000 fine. So you’re still not sure if this is accurate information? There have been many cases in a number of states where people have been charged and convicted of perjury and illegal firearms possession. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, the most liberal court in the US, upheld a lower court conviction in one such case.

A man is dead after being shot in what police say could have been a self-defense shooting.

At 5:37 a.m., the San Antonio Police Department responded to the Days Inn Motel located at the 9400 block of North Interstate 35 to a reported shooting.

Police said the victim showed up to the motel searching for the suspect's mother who was hiding from the victim --- the victim had been known to make threats against the mom.

At some point the suspect, an 18-year-old male, shot the victim. Police speculate it could have possibly in self-defense of his mother.
 

The fine art of pistol packing

The term “pistol” first came about in 16th-century Europe when the wheel-lock ignition system for firearms allowed a more efficient manner of carry than the matchlock (simply a smoldering cord attached to the hammer).

The first pistols were intended for use in combat on horseback, with their grip designed to allow for convenient firing with one hand while allowing the other hand to control the horse. These were hefty, long-barreled pistols that were normally carried in saddle holsters.

Some members of Nashville's black community are worried about the impact permitless carry law will have when it goes into effect on Thursday.

According to the Washington Post, black Americans are shot and killed by police at a much higher rate than white Americans. The Middle Tennessee Black Gun Club told News 4 they have been working to ease some of those concerns.

The permitless carry law allows anyone 21 years old and older who can legally own a firearm to carry a concealed firearm without a permit.

The National Rifle Association is “considering its next moves” after a federal judge upheld a 2018 Florida law prohibiting anyone under 21-years-old from legally buying a firearm.

“While this decision is a setback, NRA-ILA remains dedicated to protecting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens everywhere,” the NRA’s lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA), said Friday. “NRA-ILA will this decision in the days to come and decide the best method in which to pursue that goal.”

Gun owners in San Jose will soon have to pay for insurance to keep their firearms.

The San Jose City Council unanimously passed gun control measures Tuesday that will require all gun owners in the city to carry insurance and pay an annual fee to cover taxpayer costs related to gun violence, or risk having their guns confiscated. The city attorney’s office will return to the council in the fall with an ordinance for final approval.

San Jose could become the first city in the nation to pass such reforms.

Emails obtained by The Star show federal prosecutors in eastern Missouri have asked at least a dozen police departments whether they will stop participating in federal gun crime investigations. The FBI has also queried a southwest Missouri police department, and is assessing the responses of local police statewide.

At least two departments have pulled officers from assignments with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, spokesmen confirmed.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol has suspended its participation in an ATF task force, to which one trooper was assigned full-time and three part-time, Lt. Eric Brown said.

Outside of Legislative Hall, people from across Delaware gathered to send lawmakers a message.

"We've been successful in stopping these bills in the past - and this is what makes us successful. We're the people participating in the system that was designed for people's participation," said Mitch Denham, President of Delaware Gun Rights as people began to gather for the third annual rally for the second amendment. Denham says last year they had to cancel the gathering due to Delaware's COVID restrictions when it came to gathering.

The Supreme Court has acquitted Dmitri Doroškevitš, a road worker, who shot a drunk attacker with his personal firearm in self-defense in August 2018.

The court noted that there was no major dispute over the course of events. The issue was whether the accused acted in self-defense when he fired a series of shots at a man who attacked him.
 

LA: A local gun range reacts to Gov. Edward's veto of concealed carry without a permit bill

Governor John Bel Edwards vetoed a bill that would have allowed Louisianians 21 and over to conceal carry a firearm without a permit. Under current law, permits are required for concealed carry.

Brandon Elias, the owner of Sentry Defense in Youngsville, said although he teaches firearm safety classes so that people can get a permit, he doesn’t agree with the Governor's decision.

“I think that everyone should own a gun to help protect themselves and concealing it is a huge benefit for the surprise factor in self-defense,” Elias said.

Open carry without a permit is currently legal in the state. Elias feels concealed carry should also be allowed.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that as COVID-19 abates, the economy has replaced the coronavirus as the top concern facing Americans, according to a Reuters report Wednesday.

The poll, which was taken June 11-17, found that Biden’s handling of the economy dropped from an April poll in which a majority approved of his performance.

The president also saw a major dip in his approval rating on gun control between April and June. Support for Biden’s anti-gun agenda dropped 8 percentage points overall and 11 points among Democrats.

Kentucky would become a Second Amendment sanctuary state if legislation being proposed for the 2022 General Assembly is enacted.

The measure, which will be sponsored by Rep. Josh Bray, R-Mt. Vernon, would bar state and local law enforcement agencies from enforcing federal restrictions on the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms. It would also prohibit local governments and other public agencies from allocating public resources or money in the enforcement of federal firearm bans. It includes firearms themselves, ammunition and firearm accessories.

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon and Secretary of State Ed Buchanan recently sent a letter to the National Rifle Association inviting the gun advocacy group to relocate its operation to their state.

In the letter, the state leaders welcome the NRA to consider transferring the organization from Fairfax, Va. to Wyoming, citing its low taxes. They added that the state's population strongly supports the Second Amendment and its land offers many outdoor opportunities.
