Two Attacks In Less Than A Year, Had Very Different Outcomes

I spent the first 10 years of my working life in EMS, first as an EMT, then as a Paramedic. As a result, I know just how dangerous the job can be. These two incidents - one of which involved an armed paramedic - highlight to need to allow EMS personnel to protect themselves.

Minister Kaycee Madu says he wants people, especially those at risk of being targeted in hate-motivated crimes, to be allowed to carry pepper spray.

He’s written a letter to the federal government, asking it to change the criminal code of conduct to allow the use of pepper spray in self-defense incidents where you’re at serious risk of imminent danger.

Knife Rights Foundation has joined with FPC American Victory Fund and a number of state Second Amendment advocacy groups submitting an Amicus Curie (Friend of the Court) brief to the Supreme Court of the United States in a critical Second Amendment case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen. This is the first Second Amendment case to be heard by SCOTUS in over a decade. Both that case, McDonald v City of Chicago, and the preceding 2A case, District of Columbia v. Heller, included discussion of knives as “arms” in the majority opinions.

Is it a good idea to let people carry pepper spray to be used in self-defence?

Alberta’s justice minister penned a letter to the feds, asking them to allow people–especially those most likely to be targeted in hate-motivated crimes–to carry pepper spray and use it if they are at serious risk of being in imminent danger.

In what may be the largest survey of physician attitudes about firearms and how firearm-owning surgeons store guns in their homes, U.S. members of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) said they support the organization taking an active role in advocating for policies and programs designed to lower the risk of firearm-related injuries and deaths. The advocacy initiatives they support include preventing people with serious mental illness from buying firearms and cracking down on illegal firearms sales.

Results from the survey of 54,761 U.S. ACS members, of whom 11,147 responded, have been published as two articles on the website of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS) in advance of print.

In a depressing New York Times piece titled “Loneliness Is Breaking America,” Michelle Goldberg discusses research that shows that being socially isolated, disconnected, and alone is highly correlated with being a rabid Trumpist, a QAnon believer, and/or a COVID truther. Goldberg quotes Damon Linker writing in the Week about recent studies that show the “number of both men and women who claim to have ‘no close friends’ increasing five-fold over the past 30 years.” It’s not just that it’s fundamentally unhealthy to be so lonely.
 

Expensive vs. Budget Ammo: What's the Difference?

Of all these considerations, price is the least important, but also the element that is most often deliberated. This is partly because humans are opposed to paying for things they think are overpriced, and partly because money does not grow on trees.

Before we get into how much you should spend, let’s look at what ammunition actually costs. A major online retailer lists more than 200 loads for the 9 mm Luger cartridge. Prices range from as little as $0.24 to as much as $2.00 per round, begging the question as to whether one round of 9 mm Luger ammunition can actually be worth 10 times as much as another.
 

Making Ammo: A Behind The Scenes Look

The ammunition shortage that began in 2020 continues and lack of inventory makes it a frustrating time for enthusiasts and retailers. It’s no pleasure cruise for manufacturers either, whose Herculean efforts have yet to refill shelves for a variety of reasons, including the underreported fact that commercial cartridge production is laborious.

Companies added staff, increased shifts and invested in equipment to address the record-setting demand. The Remington ammo plant is once again operating at full capacity and many retailers are finally reporting 9 mm and 5.56x45 mm NATO FMJ loads are in stock. It’s a different story for other cartridges, though, particularly self-defense, match and hunting loads.

A homeowner had been gone for a few days from his residence just north of Guinda, California — but upon his return Tuesday, he discovered a break-in at his home and a gun had been stolen, KOVR-TV reported.

So the homeowner already was on edge that same night when he noticed headlights in his driveway, Lt. Gary Hallenbeck of the Yolo County Sheriff's Office told the station.
 

Biden Suggests He Wants to ‘Eliminate’ Handgun Magazines That Hold More Than 20 Rounds

President Joe Biden on Wednesday said his administration wants to push for legislation that bars high-capacity magazines for handguns and rifles.

“I’m the only guy that ever got passed legislation when I was a senator to make sure we eliminated assault weapons,” Biden said during a CNN event on Wednesday, referring to the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act that included a ban on so-called “assault weapons.” “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous.”

Attorney General Daniel Cameron joined a coalition of 26 states arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court that a New York law violates the Second Amendment.

The states filed an amicus brief in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Corlett, urging the court to declare New York’s firearm licensure unconstitutional.

To obtain a permit to carry a firearm outside the home, the State of New York requires citizens to “demonstrate a special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community or of persons engaged in the same profession.”

But I’m willing to allow the possession of such high-capacity, rapid-shooting weapons, or — if public opinion is strongly against them — their prohibition. I don’t see it as a Second Amendment issue; rather, it’s more a societal concern to be decided by public opinion.

Background checks of people who want to buy weapons seem reasonable. I had to apply for a New York state license to have my Ruger pistol.

He voted against President Trump's pro-Second Amendment Supreme Court nominees, even after voting in favor of President Obama's anti-gun justices. He even pushed to turn friends and family members into criminals if they privately transfer firearms between each other. And now, the latest test of Senator Tester’s commitment to the Second Amendment comes in the form of David Chipman, President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
 

WA: Gun lobby, GOP distort the Constitution, attack our rights

The people who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 committed treason. They were armed with rifles, guns, knives, zip ties, rope, pepper spray and more guns. They put up a gallows ready to hang Pence and Pelosi! They urinated and spread feces on the walls and floor, yet the GOP refused to agree to an investigation.

There is something drastically wrong in America when the same political party that tries to take away voting rights, civil rights, human rights, social rights and constitutional rights encourages people to take up arms in the fear the that government is taking away our rights.

The Louisiana State Senate voted to uphold Gov. John Bel Edwards’ (D) veto of a bill that would have made constitutional carry law in the state.

To override the governor’s veto, a two-thirds majority vote was needed, meaning 26 of Louisiana’s 39 state senators needed to vote in favor of overturning the veto. The vote was 23-15, with one senator absent.

U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and their colleagues today reintroduced the Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) Protection Act of 2021 to address the rapid increase in the number of “smash-and-grab” thefts targeted at federally licensed gun dealers.

“I am a staunch defender of Second Amendment rights, but I will not tolerate criminals who steal firearms,” Senator Capito said. “With burglaries and robberies of gun dealerships and manufacturers on the rise, I’m proud to help reintroduce this legislation to deter would-be criminals and keep our communities safe.”

The National Rifle Association on Thursday declined to endorse Republican Glenn Youngkin in the Virginia governor’s race, even as it endorsed the two other candidates on the party’s statewide ticket.

The NRA issued endorsements for Winsome Sears, the GOP’s nominee for lieutenant governor, and Del. Jason Miyares of Virginia Beach, the party’s nominee for attorney general, whom both had received top ratings from the gun lobbying group. The group was mum on Youngkin.

Ahead of Wednesday’s Albemarle County Board of Supervisors meeting, a crowd of more than 100 gathered outside the County Office Building on McIntire Road to rally against a proposed gun ordinance that would prohibit the carrying of guns, ammunition or parts in public parks, buildings and recreation centers owned by the county.

Steve Harvey, a 2022 Republican candidate for Albemarle’s White Hall District who previously ran in 2019, spearheaded the rally, urging attendees to call into the county’s meeting for public comment to advocate against adopting the policy.

My priority in protecting my family from becoming victims of civil disorder is to surround myself with like-minded people who are trained in self-protection and who are ready to do anything necessary to survive. I have trained all my adult life in self defense and firearms, but I know that against a crowd of several people, I need others with me. Now many reading this article might be thinking that I am a warmonger or over exaggerating what might take place in this country. If you feel that way, then do not prepare, don’t train, don’t get with like-minded friends, and don’t create a plan to survive.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms. — Tench Coxe in `Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution' under the Pseudonym "A Pennsylvanian" in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789 at 2 col. 1.
