"'A citizen will lose his appeal if the Attorney General can prove, by a preponderance of the evidence, not that the individual poses a risk, or that the person is a terrorist, or even that the person is under investigation; rather, the Attorney General must only demonstrate that the person has been placed on a terror watch list,' Titus continued."

A 16-year-old Summerville High School student says he was arrested Tuesday morning and suspended after writing about killing a dinosaur using a gun.
Alex Stone said he and his classmates were told in class to write a few sentences about themselves, and a "status" as if it was a Facebook page.
Stone said in his "status" he wrote a fictional story that involved the words "gun" and "take care of business."
"I killed my neighbor's pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business," Stone said.
 

Kroger Chain Respects Your Right to Self Defense

That’s the thing with nagging: by definition, it never, ever stops.

Once again, “Moms Demand a Gun Ban” has attempted to bully a retailer into banning guns from its stores.

This time they went after Kroger. Fortunately, it seems that management at Kroger sees the Moms for what they are: Michael Bloomberg’s bought-and-paid-for astroturf, and so their effort to pester Kroger into banning guns has failed. Kroger spokesman, Keith Dailey, has stated:

“That is why our long-standing policy on this issue is to follow state and local laws and to ask customers to be respectful of others while shopping. We know that our customers are passionate on both sides of this issue and we trust them to be responsible in our stores.”
 

WI: Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke Unloads On Elitist Billionaire Bloomberg

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, Jr. was the target of a $150,000 ad campaign by anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg as Clarke sought to retain his seat in a recent Democratic primary. After defeating his opponent—and Bloomberg’s money machine—Clarke is expected to roll to reelection in his race to become sheriff, as there is no Republican running against him for the position.

Clarke has now taken to the pages of the Washington Times to savage Bloomberg’s outside interference in an op-ed that takes no prisoners.

A judge is giving a gun rights group more time to argue why its lawsuit challenging Ohio State University over its weapons ban shouldn't be dismissed.

The Students for Concealed Carry Foundation says the ban restricts constitutionally protected rights, including the right to self-defense by Ohio State students living in university housing.

Also during the past 11 days media, activists, and bystanders have suffered the brunt of an unprofessional, yet exceedingly-armed local police force, then a similar highway patrol, then the dang National Guard. For several days there was even a curfew, a condescending and authoritarian method of dealing with civil unrest if ever there was one. All this, armed cops yelling "I’ll fucking kill you" at protesters and filmers, news helicopters banned, repeated use of teargas (and lying about it) and rubber bullets, and some people are still baffled as to why these folks don’t just "go home."
 

WA: 'Joe Biden defense' no longer needed in Washington state gun case

When a Washington state man was charged last year with unlawfully firing a shotgun, he had a simple explanation: Joe Biden told me to do it.

It appears, however, he no longer needs that defense.

The prosecuting attorney in the case against Jeffery Barton, 52, told CNN on Wednesday that the weapons count is out. He’ll now be charged with obstructing a law enforcement officer.

Today could be a very bad day politically for billionaire anti-gunner Michael Bloomberg, who is not only being served crow by a nationally-popular Wisconsin sheriff his big money failed to dislodge from office, but is now also suddenly in the crosshairs of the National Rifle Association, according to USA Today, and the gloves are definitely off.

Listen closely. Do you hear that sound? That is the sound of gun rights advocates emitting a yawning silence over the death of Michael Brown. An unarmed teen was shot dead in the street, sparking a national controversy. In any other situation like that, the Second Amendment nuts would be telling us that perhaps the victim could have “defended himself” if he had a gun.

Recent decisions by two federal appeals courts suggest, to the contrary, that the doctor’s office is becoming a First Amendment-free zone. The 11th Circuit upheld a Florida law — supported by the National Rifle Association — that forbids doctors from asking patients about their firearms or discussing how keeping guns at home could endanger their and their families’ safety. And the Ninth Circuit upheld a California law — supported by gay-rights groups — forbidding doctors from engaging in “sexual orientation change efforts” with patients who are minors.
 

TX: Huey P. Newton Gun Club leads open-carry rally in South Dallas

Two dozen protesters — most of them armed — from a gun club named after the founder of the original Black Panther Party peacefully marched through parts of South Dallas on Wednesday.

The open-carry rally was organized by the Huey P. Newton Gun Club to promote self-defense and community policing in response to recent police shootings, both nationally and locally.

Police monitored the black-clad demonstrators, some of whom had rifles slung over their shoulders. As they walked down MLK Boulevard and Malcolm X Boulevard in the blistering heat, many chanted “black power” and “justice for Michael Brown,” the black teenager fatally shot by police this month in suburban St. Louis.
 

'No' Sheriff in Town: Some Lawmen Refuse to Enforce Federal Gun Laws

With more states passing stronger gun control laws, rural sheriffs across the country are taking their role as defenders of the Constitution to a new level by protesting such restrictions and, in some cases, refusing to enforce the laws.

Sheriff Mike Lewis considers himself the last man standing for the people of Wicomico County, Maryland.

“State police and highway patrol get their orders from the governor,” the sheriff said. “I get my orders from the citizens in this county.”
 

TX: Leftist Meme Dies In A Hail Of Non-Violence

Those of you who are “of a certain age” will no doubt recognize the name Huey P. Newton, the co-founder of the Black Panthers, and there is no doubt that the Huey P. Newton Gun Club has a militant, leftist, and racial bent to its messaging.

You know what? That’s okay.

The Second Amendment, like the rest of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution applies to all of us equally, and considering how African-Americans have often been disenfranchised by both political parties over the years, I can’t blame them for having a chip on their shoulders.

"Historically in August, it's very slow," owner Steve King told The Washington Post by phone, "because people are getting ready to go back to school." Not this August. "We have made the same amount of money since Monday the 11th -- almost as much money as we did the entire month of July. It's unbelievable. It's four times, five times the volume." He compared the volumes favorably with sales during the "Obamascare" -- the fear of new gun controls after the Sandy Hook shooting -- that prompted big sales in 2013. "When you're posed with losing your firearms, you buy guns," King said. "When you're posed with losing your life, you buy more guns."

The unrest in Ferguson is shining a bright light on police in Missouri and all around the nation. Now, a gun group from North Texas is taking their message to the streets of Dallas on Wednesday. The event is organized by the Huey P. Newton Gun Club.

Huey P. Newton was one of the two people who founded the Black Panther party in the 1960s. Organizers said that the group includes people who have lost faith in police. The goal is to raise awareness about police brutality.

But access to physical evidence can extend beyond bystanders; the push to outfit police officers themselves has been gaining traction, even before Brown's murder in St. Louis. In February 2012, the city of Rialto, Calif.'s 70 police officers participated in a controlled study in which they were obligated to wear a camera filming all their interactions (and the results were found to be positive). In the wake of the violence in Ferguson, New York City's Public Advocate called on New York City to experiment with similar body cameras, and the police force in Bremerton, Wa. is one of the latest department to consider their use.

"We know that those who carry illegal firearms do so because they intend on harming others," District Attorney Seth Williams said at a news conference on Dickinson Street, around the corner from where Tynirah was shot. "We need an additional tool to lock up these offenders."

Williams said New York City had the "political will to reduce the gun violence" there. That city had about 2,400 homicides caused by gun violence per year. It imposed a 3 1/2-year mandatory-minimum sentence for those who unlawfully carried guns. Because of that and other reasons, New York last year had fewer gun homicides than Philly, he said.
 

Some one-on-one time with the Chiappa Triple Threat

If you’re at all interested in the Chiappa Triple Threat or other triple-barreled 12-gauge shotguns then you’ll enjoy this. We love hickok45 plenty but his videos normally fall into the entertainment category; this video goes into a lot more detail than usual and is much more informative.

Chiappa’s triple guns have a certain level of market appeal, but probably not hunters who want a shotgun that can easily switch between three different loads, because you can’t select which barrel fires first, and it probably doesn’t appeal to people looking for a practical home-defense gun, either.

In its motion, the D.C. District Court points out that Washington, D.C. is “home to the White House, the U.S. Capitol, dozens of federal agencies, and hundreds of international diplomats and has, over the years, experienced attempted as well as successful assassinations of presidents and other officials of national importance using firearms.” Indeed, of the four presidential assassinations in U.S. history, two – Lincoln and Garfield – took place in Washington, as did the most recent near-miss, John Hinckley’s 1981 attack on Ronald Reagan. This isn’t rocket science.

Instead of banning concealed weapons in some areas of Cabarrus County Parks, more areas could be open to the legal handguns.

A public hearing is set for Sept. 15 for public input on whether to ban concealed carry at the pool at Camp T.N. Spencer Park and the athletic fields at Frank Liske Park.

Cabarrus County Commissioner Jason Oesterreich said he plans to make a motion after the public hearing to allow concealed carry on any county property except where prohibited by law: the Cabarrus County Courthouse, the county jail and the animal shelter (which is run by a private organization).

Behind the sudden urge to purge local laws of firearms restrictions in these and dozens of other Utah cities is a push by a national gun-rights organization.

The Second Amendment Foundation, based in Washington state, has written to 49 local Utah governments demanding they repeal various ordinances that violate a state law reserving almost all gun-regulation power to the state Legislature. Cities still can outlaw discharging or brandishing weapons, but not possessing or carrying them.
