"They are instead portrayed as criminals, much like the 'vigilantes' with 'illegal guns' in Nigeria, who did to Boko Haram terrorists what the government could (would?) not. Much like the way anti-gun 'progressives' in this country intentionally conflate the term to disparage those who would defend themselves from criminal attacks..."

A 19-year-old cheerleader for the Texas Tech Red Raiders is defending herself from the jeers of critics, who say her hobby of hunting big-game animals -- and documenting it on Facebook -- promotes animal cruelty.
Kendall Jones of Cleburne, Texas, has been posting images of herself posing with some of the animals she's hunted in Africa, including lions, leopards and more -- much to the dismay of animal rights groups. ...
But on her Facebook page, Jones takes issue with her critics, claiming that her efforts in Africa are about wildlife conversation.[sic]

2 NEWS learned that the 16-year-old recently killed during that attempted robbery was shot multiple times, though the Montgomery County Coroner declined to say the exact number of times Isiah Haggins Jr. had been shot.

2 NEWS is asking how is self defense is defined under Ohio law.

In 2008, Ohio passed the Castle Doctrine which allows you to use deadly force when confronted with deadly force in your home or vehicle. But for the workplace, Ohio still upholds its century old defense, but beyond a reasonable doubt.

Seattle's ban on carrying a knife with a blade more than 3.5 inches long does not violate the 2nd Amendment's right to bear arms, a Washington appeals court ruled.

Police had pulled over Wayne Evans for speeding when they discovered he was carrying a kitchen knife.

Charged with carrying a dangerous knife, Evans said he carried the fixed-blade utensil for protection because he had been "jumped" before in the same neighborhood.
 

FL: Florida Supreme Court To Weigh If Felons Can Stand Their Ground

“His status as a felon in illegal possession of a firearm did not preclude that claim of immunity,” the 2nd DCA ruled. “And, as set forth above, Little established by a preponderance of the evidence that his use of force was justified to prevent his imminent death or great bodily harm as provided for in” the law.

The 2nd DCA said it wasn’t sure whether the decisions in the Little and Hill cases were in conflict — something that makes the Florida Supreme Court more likely to intervene. But in its ruling on Bragdon, the 4th DCA said there was a conflict with the Little ruling. Bragdon asked the justices to hear the case based on that conflict, and lawyers for the state agreed.

Richard Martinez, whose 20-year-old son was killed in a shooting rampage near the University of California, Santa Barbara, in late May, acknowledges that calling for tougher gun-control laws in Florida isn't easy.

But as Martinez travels the country crusading for political discussion on "sensible" gun regulations, he said Wednesday he hoped to leave a powerful message with elected officials as he visited Florida's Capitol.

“It will surprise the mayor and many other people to learn,” Carlson wrote, “that gun violence isn’t rising in America, it’s falling. In fact, it’s plummeting. Gun deaths are down nearly 40 percent in the last 20 years, despite an increase in population and a rise in gun ownership. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) points out an even more dramatic number: Non-fatal gun crimes free-fell 69 percent during that same period.”

A Las Vegas prosecutor dropped the murder case against a Manteca area pastor, but Rob Cox’s fate now waits for a grand jury decision.

Cox was charged with murder for an incident outside a Las Vegas sports bar nearly a year ago. Cox, and the Place of Refuge Church interns who were with him on a church trip at the time, maintain Link Ellingson attacked them first. Cox says he was acting in self defense when he reacted, and got into a fight which led to Ellingson falling and hitting his head on the concrete.

In continuing coverage, we spoke with Idaho Governor 'Butch' Otter about the Guns on Campus law when he was in Moscow for the Republican State Convention last month.

Governor Otter said state laws already gave people the right to carry on campus, and it was the universities that made policies prohibiting it. He said this new legislation is beneficial because it protects citizens constitutional rights while requiring people wanting to carry on college campuses to go through extra training to obtain an enhanced carry permit.

What I’ve told people around here – and wherever people come up to me and say, “I can’t believe that ruling,” or “At least you tried” – what I say is, “Wait a minute. This is a fight. This is ten rounds, and we just got knocked down in the first round, and we got back up, and we’re going to continue the fight. We’re not giving up, and we’re not going to stop.”

We are going to file an appeal. We have until July 25 to file our notice of appeal, and our attorneys are already working on it.
As I’ve said before, District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010) weren’t settled in district court. They both lost their first rounds and had to take it to the Supreme Court to overturn the DC ban and the Chicago gun law.

Joe Mantegna may be best-known in Hollywood for starring in everything from “Godfather Part lll” to “Criminal Minds,” but even before he was a big shot on the silver screen the 66-year-old was competing in both pistol and shotgun competitions.

The devout firearms enthusiast is now loading up for his fourth season hosting the Outdoor Channel’s “MidwayUSA’s Gun Stories,” which takes viewers through gun history – exploring classics like the Mauser bolt-action to top-notch firearms like the Adaptive Combat Rifle.

Retail giant Target announced Wednesday that it is asking people not to bring firearms into its stores, even when those stores are located in towns that allow “open carry.”

“Our approach has always been to follow local laws, and of course, we will continue to do so,” interim Target CEO John Mulligan said.

As America celebrates the 238th anniversary of the Founding Fathers’ decision to break from Great Britain, an outsider is telling WND it’s clear what made the unlikely revolution possible, and successful.

An armed citizenry.

“If the colonists had not had the means of defending themselves they would never have been able to throw off the chains of tyranny and bring forth a new birth of freedom on the American continent,” said Nick Adams, an Australian celebrity who is coming out with the a book, “The American Boomerang.”

He comes from a perspective where an entire generation hasn’t had the freedom to protect themselves already.

"What good is a gun unless its on you? We have the right to keep and bear arms now constitutionally guaranteed, but even though we do have that right, there are many who don't think that we should," said Matt Thiessen, event co-organizer.

After photos of gun activists carrying assault weapons in the baby-clothes section of a Target store in Texas surfaced, and a loaded handgun was found in the toy section in a South Carolina location, the company officially asked customers Wednesday not to bring guns into the stores. “Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create,” said interim CEO John Mulligan.

A man carrying a holstered firearm entered the store to make a purchase. Another customer, also with a holstered firearm, approached him and demanded to see his identification and firearms license, according to the Valdosta Police Department report.

The customer making demands for ID pulled his firearm from its holster but never pointed it at the other customer, who said he was not obligated to show any permits or identification.

He demanded the man's ID again. Undeterred by the drawn gun, the man paid for his items, left the store and called for police.

Despite this, all four of these laws passed easily in each state. And in each case, their passage was approved and aided by the least likely of organizations: the NRA.

Over the past year, the NRA has been quietly helping legislators pass this kind of domestic violence legislation, either by promising not to oppose the bills or by actively working with the bills’ liberal sponsors. After the Minnesota bill passed, Minnesota Democratic State Rep. Dan Schoen said: “The NRA has been really good to work with on this particular issue. It pains me to say, but they have been.”

There is considerable irony in Target's decision. The store's trademark is the bull's eye of a target, which is the centerpiece in firearms marksmanship competitions that have been held for a couple of centuries.

Today’s statement from Target interim CEO John Mulligan was not out of line with positions taken by other private companies that have seen their stores turned into political football fields. There has been no outright ban instituted, but the store has been put in a tough position by activists on both sides who might consider in the future making political statements on billboards or in newspaper advertisements.

The organization also says the university required prior approval of event flyers and removed the event information from BSU's website.

Yesterday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) vetoed A.2006/S.993, sponsored by Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-6) and Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-37). This legislation sought to arbitrarily lower New Jersey’s magazine restriction from fifteen rounds to ten. New Jersey is one of only a handful of states that already has a restriction on the number of rounds permitted.

I first test-fired the GLOCK 42 during SHOT Show’s 2014 Media Day at the range. Just unveiled to industry folks and not yet available to the public, GLOCK’s smallest pocket pistol created quite a buzz among media members. I immediately saw the value this slim .380 offers to petite women shooters, or to someone looking for a secondary concealed-carry firearm, and requested a sample to review. I even invited my mom to share the GLOCK 42 review experience with me, because I have that much confidence in what this gun can do.

Bryan Miller, executive director of Heeding God's Call, said Christie's veto was a political calculation related to gun-friendlier states such as New Hampshire and Iowa.

"Gov. Christie had an opportunity to do something simple, effective and immediate for the safety of New Jersey's homes, schools and communities, but he failed to do it. Whatever the merits of the unrelated measures he suggested, he failed to make the state safer," Miller said.

The New Jersey Association of Rifle & Pistol Clubs, the National Rifle Association's state chapter, said the bill would have banned a class of popular .22 caliber semi-automatic rifles as well as magazines larger than 10 rounds.
