TX: 'Feared for his life': Man says after being acquitted of murder at Kirby apartments in 2014

Days after being acquitted of murder, Huntley James Grichor says it's all sinking in.

He said, "I'm thankful I'm not in jail and I owe it to the Lord and this guy, he's an amazing lawyer."

Grichor was referring to his attorney, Chris Flood.

Flood says he believes putting his client on the stand helped in his own defense.

After a three week trial and nine hours of deliberations, a jury found him not guilty by reason of self-defense in the September 2014 stabbing death of Shannon James Gallagher at Gables West Ave apartments on Kirby.

SB 2046 contains vague language that could criminalize firearm modifications that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.

Prosecutors say Victor Emanuel Brown didn't have a concealed-carry license and would have been charged with killing Strada had he survived.

Seminole County Sheriff's investigators say Brown and Jorge Vega-Rosado were fighting early Sunday in the central Florida city of Lake Mary. They say Brown fired and missed his target, striking Strada in the eye. Vega-Rosada then fired several shots, killing Brown. They say he won't be charged because he fired in self-defense.

Ryan Hobbs, Crouch's attorney, told the Democrat, “Academy has decided to, instead of treating him like the hero he is, they terminated his employment effective immediately because he put his hands on Mr. White.”

Academy Sports' corporate spokeswoman Elise Hasbrook told the Democrat she couldn't comment on specific personnel matters or policies. “While the incident ended without injury, actions inconsistent with corporate policies were taken,” she said. “We addressed the matter with the local store and individuals involved.” End of discussion.

Think past this for a minute.
 

NH: NH Libertarian Senate Candidate Answers Questionnaire on Gun Freedoms

As the Libertarian candidate for NH Senate district 10, I’ve begun posting my answers to the various questionnaires I receive from interest groups. Here’s the four-page questionnaire I received from the New Hampshire Firearms Coalition.

This one was easy. Libertarians are always in favor of individual rights, in this case the right of self-defense and the defense of others. Given that libertarians are against aggressive force, they support the use of defensive force as a way to stop aggressors. No one should have to ask permission to defend themselves or own whatever they feel is necessary to defend themselves. That includes felons who should have their gun rights restored.

The 53-year-old Kavanaugh also emphasized his ability to get along with others who do not necessarily share his views, noting that his “law clerks come from diverse backgrounds and points of view” and that he had been hired to teach at Harvard Law School by Elena Kagan, who was then the dean of the law school but was later appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the Supreme Court. And he discussed the “vibrant Catholic community in the D.C. area,” stressing that even if the “members of that community disagree about many things,” they are “united by a commitment to serve.”

President Trump recently selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Immediately following this announcement, national pro-gun groups like the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America, and the Second Amendment Institute released statements endorsing Trump’s nomination. Kavanaugh brings with him a strong support and respect for the Second Amendment. His judicial history clearly demonstrates that he is a friend to law-abiding gun owners.

Justice Scalia Made Clear the Second Amendment and Heller Prohibit “Assault Weapon” Bans

Brett Kavanaugh is a true Second Amendment radical. He believes assault weapon bans are unconstitutional, a position way out of the judicial mainstream, far to the right of even late Justice Scalia.

Murphy’s comment gives the false impression that Former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who authored of the majority opinion in the landmark 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller case that recognized the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, did not consider bans on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms (termed “assault weapons” by gun control advocates) to be unconstitutional.

Describing Hammer as “a 79-year-old grandmother and nationally renowned civil rights advocate,” the federal lawsuit filed in U.S. district court in Tallahassee contends four men have made her the focal point of “hate and vitriol” through phone calls, emails and other communications.

Liberty Control (aka Gun Control), the absurd idea that depriving the innocent of a means of self-defense will protect them from criminals and the government died on July 10, 2018, after a protracted illness. The past few months saw it suffer multiple degradations, but the final cause of death was a settlement between the Department of Justice and Second Amendment Foundation in SAF’s lawsuit on behalf of Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed over free speech issues related to 3-D files and other information that may be used to manufacture lawful firearms:

NRA members can feel confident throwing their enthusiastic support behind President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Throughout his time on the bench, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated deep respect for the Second Amendment as construed in Justice Antonin Scalia’s landmark decision in District of Columbia v. Heller. Moreover, his record on the Second Amendment is well established. As Second Amendment scholar and University of Denver Law Professor Dave Kopel wrote earlier this week, “No nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court has had such a detailed record on Second Amendment as does Brett Kavanaugh.”

Mr. Wilson, who is well known in anarchist and gun-rights communities, complained that his right to free speech was being stifled and that he was sharing computer code, not actual guns.

The case was settled on June 29, and Mr. Wilson gave The New York Times a copy of the agreement this week. The settlement states that 3-D printing tutorials are approved “for public release (i.e. unlimited distribution) in any form.”

The government also agreed to pay nearly $40,000 of Mr. Wilson’s legal fees.

NRA Files Comments in Support of Trump Administration’s Export Reform Effort

As we mentioned earlier, the proposals are a win-win for both the domestic firearms industry and for national security. The NRA submitted formal comments to both rulemakings lauding the efforts and suggesting additional changes to help promote the agencies’ goal of “building a taller fence around a smaller yard.” The point is to more finely tune export controls to distinguish between items that provide critical military or intelligence advantages to the U.S. or are “inherently military” and items that, while having some military utility, are commonly available from places like RadioShack and Walmart.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins ... Society is in every state a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. — THOMAS PAINE
