Todd Brown, owner of Oasis Equestrian Center, has big concerns about a firearm optics testing facility going in across the street from his Northfield Township property – and he isn’t the only one.

Twelve residents of the township north of Ann Arbor have decided to take legal action against the township, after the facility was granted a conditional use permit on July 12. The residents filed a lawsuit in the Washtenaw County Trial Court on Aug. 2 seeking a reversal of the township board’s approval.

Leapers Farm, 2960 Seven Mile Road, plans to use the property as a private gun facility to test and research precision firearm optics that are manufactured by the applicant.

The fatal shooting of a 22-year-old man in West Palm Beach, Fla., who allegedly threatened to open fire on a crowd Aug. 7 is just the latest in a number of incidents in which a legally-armed private citizen appears to have prevented a tragedy.

Gun prohibitionists have remained silent in the wake of the shooting, where—according to the Palm Beach Post—a “brawl between two women escalated into a fight involving about 20 people.” The suspect reportedly “grabbed a short-barreled rifle from his car and threatened to fire into the crowd.”

Self-defense instructor Robyn Sandoval joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or did they have a plan?

We are unable to apply this standard based on the record and arguments currently before us.The district court should decide, in the first instance,whether Oakland Tactical’s proposed course of conduct is covered by the plain text of the Second Amendment.3 See, e.g.,id.at 2134–35 (concluding that the Second Amendment plainly covers a right to bear arms in public for self-defense). If the district court concludes that Oakland Tactical’s proposed course of conduct is covered by the plain text of the Second Amendment, it should then determine whether historical evidence—to be produced by the Township in the first instance—demonstrates that the Ordinance’s shooting-range regulations are consistent with the nation’s historical tradition...

Williams County officials and a group looking to make the county a second amendment sanctuary met Wednesday to discuss passage of a resolution.

The Sons of Liberty is pushing commissioners to sign a proclamation that would consider any federal acts, laws, and executive orders that infringe on gun rights illegal in Williams County. The resolution also includes allowing the sheriff to arrest federal agents that violate state law. Commissioner Barry Ramberg, a member of the Sons, said the resolution is similar to what has passed in other counties.

“I really don’t see a downside just to saying we support this,” said Ramberg.

But Fried’s amended complaint maintained that prohibiting people who use medical marijuana from buying or having guns is a relatively recent development in the U.S.

“Quite simply, there is no historical tradition of denying individuals their Second Amendment rights based solely (or even partially) on the use of marijuana,” the lawsuit said. “In fact, historical evidence shows that marijuana was considered a legitimate and legal form of medicine in England, America, and other western countries through the mid-Nineteenth and early-Twentieth Centuries.”

An Amazon delivery driver is not facing any charges after he shot a knife-wielding man on Sunday.

The driver, Gino Grove, was out on his route when the suspect, Christopher Roberts, walked up to him with a knife, according to Middletown police.

“Obviously, he [Grove] was in fear,” explained Middletown Police Chief David Birk. “So, in defense of himself, he was able to discharge a firearm striking the individual in the leg area.”

The police report shows Roberts was suspected of being under the influence of drugs when he confronted the Amazon driver.

Betts argued that he acted in self defense. A judge dismissed the case before trial, and the Kansas Court of Appeals upheld that decision. But Supreme Court Justice Dan Biles, writing for a unanimous state Supreme Court, said Kansas law grants immunity from prosecution for force used specifically against an attacker and doesn't mention bystanders.

"If the Legislature wishes to extend self-defense immunity when an innocent bystander is hurt, it can do so," Biles wrote. "In the meantime, we find nothing in the statutes providing a blanket shield for reckless conduct injuring an innocent bystander who was not reasonably perceived as an attacker."

The Douglas County Chapter of A Girl and A Gun spent two hot and sweaty hours cleaning up the Douglas County Shooting Range on Aug. 3.

This is a public range utilized by not only shooting enthusiasts in Douglas County, but also by different organizations, gun safety and training companies, and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

In the two hours they were there they raked up and shoveled into garbage bags approximately 1,300 pounds of trash which included shotgun shells, bullet casings, clay pigeon pieces, cardboard ammo boxes, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and other assorted trash.

An 80-year-old man was forced to use his gun in self-defense after being pulled from his vehicle this past Sunday.

A Delaware man was looking for an item in his car sometime before 11 PM. It wasn’t reported if his vehicle was in his driveway or on the street. He was approached by three men who got out of an SUV that parked in the middle of the street.

The suspects threatened the man stating they had a gun, and ordered him out of the vehicle. As he was exiting, one of the suspects grabbed the man and pulled him out of the car. That’s when he drew his concealed carry gun and fired at the suspects.

A Florida man potentially saved the lives of others after shooting a man threatening to open fire at a party.

Around 10:30 PM, at a family gathering in West Palm Beach, FL, two women got into an argument last Sunday. A 22-year-old man tried to intervene and then retrieved a gun from his car.

He started threatening to open fire at the party and was told numerous times by party goers to put the gun away. He didn’t. And that’s when a 32-year-old man with a valid concealed carry permit drew his gun and shot the 22-year-old. The suspect died at the scene.

Not long after the 10mm was released, the cartridge found itself hanging over the yawning abyss of obscurity thanks in no small part to a lack of suitable firearms. Bren Ten pistols, which were the first to be chambered in 10mm, were available in the early 1980s, but unfortunately magazines for those pistols were not. To add insult to injury, the FBI—for whom the 10mm was essentially developed when the agency decided it needed more stopping power after the infamous 1986 Miami shootout—gave up on the 10mm in favor of the .40 S&W.

Here, the case involves keeping a handgun in the home, which is certainly protected by the Second Amendment. The government bears the burden of proving that the HQL "is consistent with the Nation's historical tradition of firearm regulation."

In Bruen, the Court stated that history from the original periods (1791 for the Second Amendment, 1868 for the Fourteenth, which made the Second Amendment enforceable against the states) are most important. Colonial history is relevant, as is English history to the extent that it reflected an unbroken tradition that was adopted by the colonists and in force during the Founding Era.
 

IL: Politicians have failed to deal with gun violence. Give medical officials a chance.

What is abundantly clear is that gun violence reduction cannot be achieved politically. It must be viewed as a public health and medical issue and resolved by organizations such as the American Public Health Association and the American Medical Association, which represent the interests of physicians who treat the people afflicted by gun violence. Politicians should then be required to enact the resulting recommendations into laws.

One way to solve a problem is to look at the endpoint and work backward. The endpoint is reducing gun violence, which means reducing avoidable, premature deaths caused by firearms.
 

GA: Cancellation of Atlanta festival sparks new fight over guns

Tens of thousands of Music Midtown festivalgoers are no longer going to descend on Atlanta’s massive Piedmont Park next month to cheer on hip-hop star Future or watch beloved rock band My Chemical Romance take the stage.

In fact, some people are convinced Atlanta — center of the nation’s hip-hop music scene — will lose more music festivals and performances on public land as organizers and artists learn that state law makes it nearly impossible for them to stop people from carrying guns among the alcohol-fueled crowds.

That prospect has ignited a new fight over gun rights in Georgia that is roiling the governor’s race, casting a shadow over Atlanta’s vaunted music scene and adding to tension between the city and state.

“When it comes down to it, even if a school has a resource officer, if they’re in a different part of the school, different part of campus, it could be minutes before that resource officer shows up,” Winder said on NewsNation’s “Rush Hour.”

“That could be the difference, unfortunately, between a massive tragedy happening,” Winder said. “I just like having the opportunity to make that decision for myself and my students.”

States like Ohio and Florida have laws and programs in place that give teachers a decision whether or not to carry a gun in school. Ohio passed its law in the wake of the Robb Elementary School shooting in Texas that left 19 children and two teachers dead.

Now, with the passage of S.9458/A.10503, Governor Kathy Hochul has signed into law yet another unconstitutional and expansive curb of our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

While anti-gun activists argue that these policies will reduce gun deaths, the truth is that they will primarily target law-abiding citizens. This legislation fails to address the driving causes of crime in our state. It was also so poorly written that the original bill effectively banned some types of body armor but failed to even ban the type of body armor used by the Buffalo shooter.

The law had to be hastily amended after having been passed and signed into law. Below I have responded to many of the false claims being made to correct the record.

“FBI whistleblower leaks bureau’s ‘domestic terrorism symbols guide’ on ‘Militia Violent Extremists,’” AmmoLand News reports. “Under the ‘Symbols’ category of the document, ‘2A’ is listed with the following explanation: ‘MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a well regulated Militia, as well as the right to bear arms. Revolutionary War imagery such as the Gadsden Flag and the Betsy Ross Flag” are cited in the document under ‘Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery or Quotes.’”

At least this time, authorities left giant inflatable pink pigs out of the equation.

The Justice Department has come out to defend its federal ban on medical marijuana users after it was sued by Nikki Fried, the chief of Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services who is running to unseat Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
