An Amazon delivery driver is not facing any charges after police in Ohio say he shot a knife-wielding man this past weekend.

The driver was out on his route when the suspect, Christopher Roberts, walked up to him with a knife, according to Middletown Police Chief David Birk.

“Obviously, he [Amazon driver] was in fear,” Birk said. “So, in defense of himself, he was able to discharge a firearm striking the individual in the leg area.”

According to the police report, Roberts was suspected of being under the influence of drugs when he confronted the Amazon driver.

After being shot in the leg, Roberts ran from the scene and was eventually found by police, who took him to a hospital, Birk said.

An official told the CBC that a hiker using a loaded firearm in self-defense in the national park was “unprecedented,” adding that the hiker was charged with “several counts” under the Canada National Parks Act. It’s not immediately clear what those charges are and what kind of punishment the hiker may face. Parks Canada typically recommends that people traveling in bear country carry bear spray and know how to use it.

New York’s gun laws are a mess. Antigun politicians passing them don’t have a clue. Worse yet, the people facing consequences are law-abiding New Yorkers.

They’re also the ones facing danger. Case in point – New York City’s Democratic Mayor Eric Adams recent reveal. The mayor told media, “When it comes to guns, this year, 2,386 people were arrested with a gun. Of those, approximately 1,921 are out on the street.

“This year, 165 people were arrested with a second gun charge,” Mayor Adams added. “Of those, 82 — out on the street. Not one arrest but two gun arrests — back out on the street.”

While a recent gun amnesty offered by the Royal Virgins Island Police Force (RVIPF) was patently unsuccessful, Governor John Rankin has still managed to find a silver lining in the number of guns taken off the streets in recent months.

The force had issued a call months ago for persons in possession of illegal guns and offensive weapons as well as those who had knowledge of the whereabouts of guns or ammunition to turn them in to the RVIPF without penalty.

NH: A State Rep Candidate’s Defense of the Second Amendment

Guns have been with us throughout American history, but mass shootings are a fairly recent phenomenon, casting doubt on the cause-effect argument offered by gun control advocates.

We can never know how many mass shootings have actually been prevented because of the Second Amendment, but the recent story concerning a mall shooter in Indiana lends anecdotal support to the idea that armed law-abiding citizens may be our only defense against the criminals who will never obey gun control legislation. Taking guns away from the “good guys” is an illogical solution to the gun violence perpetrated by these “bad guys.”

The Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus & Political Action Committee on Wednesday announced it won't be endorsing a candidate for Minnesota Governor in the 2022 general election.

The caucus invariably supports a broad spectrum of Republicans who oppose any gun restrictions, but in a statement, caucus chairman Bryan Strawser said GOP candidate Scott Jensen "betrayed" his 2016 endorsement for the Minnesota Senate by co-sponsoring gun control measures after he was elected.

“Voters will have to decide whether or not to trust Dr. Jensen with their Second Amendment rights, ” Strawser said.
 

OH: Principal: Teachers are not 'bodyguards.' Law places ominous burden on overworked, underpaid

Undergoing the required training reinforced the immense responsibility that comes with carrying a weapon, and despite having my CCW permit for nearly six months, I have yet to purchase a firearm.

Ohio House Bill 99 seeks to place this ominous burden on often overworked and underpaid educators, only requiring them to obtain 24 hours of instruction instead of the original 700 hours needed to carry a weapon on school grounds.

Be warned if you fly the Gadsden, Betsy Ross, Liberty Tree or certain other flags. Maybe you have one in your shop or garage or you might have a Punisher Skull decal on your truck. You could possibly have a Spartan helmet on one of your T-shirts, perhaps a tattoo? These and other symbols are potential signs of domestic terrorism, according to a leaked internal FBI document.

Project Veritas and Gun Owners of America leaked an FBI internal “Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide” last week.

The document said these flags and others, some symbols and certain quotations are used by anti-government, anti-authority violent extremists, specifically “Militia Violent Extremists” or MVEs.

Who has more mental problems – the perpetrators of gun violence or congressional Republicans, including our own Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who lacks normal compassion and regard for human life, even of young children?

Congressional Republicans have once again copped out of their responsibility to do anything significant to stop mass killings by effectively acting only on mental illness measures. At the least, their social-emotional development has been severely stunted.

Using the Second Amendment of the Constitution as their crutch, they ignore its original intent: to make certain southern colonies would join the union by assuring white militias for squelching slave mutiny.
 

TX: Pro-veteran, politics-minded Black Rifle is betting on its brand to sell more than coffee

Few other coffee companies would make their podcast such a central part of their brand — let alone have a podcast at all — but Black Rifle is in part driven by its media production staying “top of mind” for consumers, as Davin said in a December call with investors. In recent episodes of the podcast, the Black Rifle founders have chatted about veteran stories, their support of the Second Amendment and the state of journalism.

“I’m a conservative guy. I’m a large Second Amendment guy. That’s going to bleed into my brand,” said co-founder Mat Best in an interview with the San Antonio Report. Best also is the company’s head of brand.

Maybe a way forward would be to put county sheriffs in charge of all firearms laws. Sheriffs are elected, so they’re accountable to the people. They understand guns, both their potential to protect and their capability to generate great harm. They know that training and responsibility are essential. Across the state, sheriff’s offices effectively handle the application and permitting of conceal carry permits for eligible Missourians. Local law enforcement seems to have a certain practicality with guns that the chattering class sometimes lacks. They know that training is good and the filing of paperwork is necessary, but they also seem to know when enough is enough.

Florida’s Agriculture Commissioner took issue with a recent Department of Justice memo attached to a move to dismiss a lawsuit that challenges disqualifying the state’s medical cannabis patients from legally owning firearms. The memo characterized marijuana users as “dangerous.”

“The DOJ’s argument is as offensive as it is inaccurate,” Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, a Democrat, said in an Aug. 8 written statement. “We were disappointed not only with the motion but with the memo attached to the motion, calling marijuana users dangerous.”

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.
 

The Post-Bruen New York and California Punitive Gun Control Laws are Clearly Unconstitutional

After Bruen, a notable noncomplier is New York Governor Kathy Hochul. She also follows in the footsteps of her predecessor, Andrew Cuomo. Both passed their big gun control bills by sending a “message of necessity”—a maneuver to prevent legislative hearings and to deprive legislators of time to read a bill before they vote on it. As the New York State Sheriffs’ Association explained:

The new firearms law language first saw the light of day on a Friday morning and was signed into law Friday afternoon. A parliamentary ruse was used to circumvent the requirement in our State Constitution that Legislators—and the public—must have three days to study and discuss proposed legislation before it can be taken up for a vote.

"Then, as we went on, whether the Kings knew my politics or not, they leaned into my politics. I’m incredibly anti-gun. I believe the Second Amendment should be erased, and was a historical anomaly and a mistake. More than one of the episodes intersected with my politics, and I loved that. Then of course, Judge Abernathy tended to rule against his own beliefs, because he always followed the law. There was always a shock or a turn when his verdict wasn’t what you thought."
 

Enabling Gun Violence in the United States

On July 29, the House passed legislation (217-213) to revive a ban on semiautomatic weapons. Although important, it still faces an uphill battle in the Senate, which continues to be deaf to the clamor of the majority of the population, anxious for more effective measures to curb gun violence in the country.

High rates of gun violence in the U.S. result from several enabling factors, including Supreme Court decisions conflating the historical reliance on state militias with the unrestrained “constitutional right” to bear arms; Congress’ reluctance to pass effective gun control legislation; easy availability of guns and manufacturers’ effective promotion of high caliber weapons;

The Chippewa County District Attorney says he does not plan to file charges against a woman involved in a domestic stabbing death in Chippewa Falls in May.

In a release, the DA’s Office says based on reports, interviews with Leah Mickelson, and video, the DA has determined there is not enough evidence to go against Mickelson’s claims of self-defense in the case. 29-year-old Stephan Lee of Chippewa Falls died of stab wounds on May 14 at a home on Willow Street.

Ohio cities cannot ban guns in public parks. That's been the rule for nearly two decades ever since concealed carry became legal in the state.

In fact, the Supreme Court of Ohio has ruled that cities cannot ban firearms in municipal parks because it conflicts with a general state law that permits qualifying adults to carry a concealed weapon on any public property other than at locations enumerated in the law.

Yet, communities continue to put up no-gun signs, whether out of ignorance or obstinance. Fortunately, there are many examples of these signs being removed.

To determine the state with the worst gun laws, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the 2021 Annual Gun Law Scorecard from the Giffords Law Center (led by former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, herself a gun violence victim), which assigned letter grades to states based on the strength and weaknesses of their gun laws and policies. Center attorneys then compared these values to gun death rates released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The term “generally,” in the information for some states means in the majority of cases, with some exceptions.

A leading advocate of the cause of a Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance for Indiana County insists that a draft of that ordinance has been considered by the Indiana County Board of Commissioners.

“I have been in meetings with (the) commissioners, they gave me a draft if the proposed ordinance to go over with my members,” Deborah J. Shreckengost, of Blairsville, said Thursday. “We made a few small changes and gave it back to them for approval.”

After hearing comments from opponents of the idea at Wednesday’s board meeting, Board Chairman R. Michael Keith reiterated that the language of such an ordinance is still under consideration, and “no advancement has been made to date” on that issue.
