There was a time when kings ruled their subjects. We reject that idea today, but we remained influenced by our history. That is why we are so repelled by the obvious corruption of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Our disgust at political corruption today is divinely inspired from an ancient tradition.

The sixth homicide of Des Moines brought the "Stand Your Ground" law back into the spotlight.

"Sounds like, according to the business owner, that the suspect tried to confront him, business owner was armed and shot him," said Des Moines Police Sgt. Paul Parizek.

The owner of Kraft Imports and Five Star Mufflers shot and killed a reported burglar that was stealing from his shop. This incident brings into play the 'Stand Your Ground Law' that was signed in 2017.

"The law was written with this kind of situation in mind I think," said Sgt. Parizek.

New Concealed Carry Gun That Looks Like a Smartphone is Hitting the Market

Kirk Kjellberg, the inventor of the smartphone-looking pistol, told WHDH that he came up with the idea after a child called him out for having a gun on him. This way, no one would know or question why he was carrying.

“It’s more that they want to be able to carry a gun when they need to and not have to engage other people about why they’re carrying that gun,” Kjellberg said.

He added that the weapon is not a threat to places like an airport and that he has been in contact with Homeland Security to help train officers in identifying the weapon.
 

After the Annapolis shooting, the anti-gun crowd's silence is deafening

For one, the shooting couldn’t be blamed on some sort of black-clad, high-tech killing machine. Rather, it was carried out with the primitive yet pervasive weapon that has remained mostly unchanged since the late 1800s: the shotgun.

It would be incredibly hard, if not impossible, to get people to rally around shotgun restrictions, and characterizing a shotgun as an “assault-something” would further push the “assault weapon” debate toward meaninglessness. The attack couldn’t be blamed on lax gun laws this time either. It happened in Maryland, a veritable hellhole for gun owners.

After an hour-long meeting with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh Thursday, Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, announced plans to support Kavanaugh in the confirmation process.

"He is someone who will interpret the law and Constitution as written, he holds a healthy skepticism regarding the expansive power of federal agencies, he is a strong protector of the Second Amendment, and he has the values, temperament and humility I believe Alaskans will value on the Supreme Court," Sullivan said in a statement Thursday afternoon.

Arkansas Online reports 02-20-18 in North Little Rock, Arkansas, local police said a suspected intruder was shot Tuesday morning around 11 a.m. while breaking into a home.

The 34-year-old resident was watching a movie with a female guest when heard an individual kicking his front door.

The resident grabbed his handgun and told the intruder, “Stop kicking the door. I’ve got a gun.” The warning was ineffective as the kicking continued until the door was forced open according to police reports.

A law professor at George Washington University contacted The Fix after this article was published, giving a partial defense of Murphy’s recommendation.

John Banzhaf, who has recommended training young women to fight off would-be attackers they already know, wrote in an email the distinction turns on whether deadly force is “reasonably necessary” to prevent a “forcible rape.”

Such language is found in most states’ criminal statutes, such as New York’s, he said: “In other words, the killing of a rapist may be legally justified even if the person using the deadly force made a mistake, providing the mistake was not unreasonable.”

Here’s something you don’t hear about every day: a grandmother with guns, who’s training others how to learn responsible self-defense and firearms training.

That’s what’s happening in Raymond, Mississippi.

“Anytime something tragic happens on the television, it is a reality check for the public,” noted Kim Condon, co-owner of Boondocks Firearms Training Academy in Raymond, Miss., told the local CBS News. “It makes them wake up and realize, that can happen here.”

Brandon Combs with the Firearms Policy Coalition told Guns.com that AB 1192 gives “extra-special gun rights” to a select few while stepping on law-abiding gun owners who are denied possession of similar magazines for self-defense. “The fact that the bill was brought by a Republican and passed by anti-gun Democrats says everything one needs to know about how deep the Sacramento swamp really goes,” said Combs.

Further, Combs has concerns that the carve-out fails to pass constitutional muster, holding that it likely violates equal protection rights under both the state and federal constitutions as well as making potentially illegal changes to Prop. 63 gun control laws approved by voters in 2016.

Dwight Kay is at a loss to understand why so many lawmakers seem intent on taking away what he sees as a fundamental right of every citizen.

“I don’t see why we’re spending so much time in this state concentrating on taking away firearms from people,” Kay told the Metro East Sun. “I see Illinois doing nothing but making gun ownership more difficult for law-abiding citizens and it grieves me.”

The co-owner of the Utah Gun Exchange, an online marketplace for guns buyers and sellers, Melchior is also a provocateur these days, especially when it comes to questions of gun control.

In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on McDonald vs. Chicago, which found the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms applies to all states through the Fourteenth Amendment.

Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson said it’s important the new justice be a strict constructionist who follows what the framers set out for in Second Amendment.

Pearson has said his group is involved in one case – fighting suburban Deerfield's attempt to ban certain guns – that it is prepared to take to the Supreme Court. The ban was put on hold last month when a Lake County circuit court put an injunction on the ordinance.

Survivors of the Parkland and Pulse shootings along with local political leaders will be on hand to register people to vote at an event in downtown Orlando tomorrow. It’s part of March for Our Live’s national voter registration drive. The goal is electing candidates who support tightening gun laws.

“We’ve had a great success with this program and second amendment voters are really activated. They’re really watching what’s happening and they’re really concerned about their second amendment rights.”

In a landmark case that has both First and Second Amendment implications, an entrepreneur from Texas got the federal government to concede that the software code used in the 3D printing of firearms is speech protected by the First Amendment, and now anyone can build a firearm in their home using his methods.

The entrepreneur, Cody Wilson, successfully test-fired the first 3D-printed gun at a range five years ago. Once his experiment succeeded, he uploaded the instructions as to how to replicate the production of the weapon to the internet.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
