Shootings have increased by nearly half this year in Newark, bucking a trend of declining gun violence across many of New Jersey’s most crime-ridden cities.
As of Aug. 9, there were 161 shooting incidents this year in Newark, the state’s most populous city, compared with 111 during the same period last year—a 45% rise, according to records maintained by the New Jersey State Police.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: How is this possible in the gun-free zone known as the Democratic People's Republic of New Jersey?

Napan Sheila Molles regularly invites female friends to home parties to sell products. But this is not makeup or Tupperware.

As a representative for Damsel in Defense, Molles sells stun guns and other defensive weapons, put into pretty packages to appeal to women.

Molles, who works for the Vacaville Department of Corrections in her day job, said that women have a self-defense gap not only because they face the risk of sexual assault, but also because they are usually less comfortable with personal weapons than men are. Damsel in Defense, which was started by two women in 2011, aims to change that.
 

You have the right to bear arms, but what about “electrical” arms or stun guns?

But what about electrical arms like stun guns, invented in 1972? Are they covered under this line of Supreme Court reasoning? Currently, that isn't clear.

The Supreme Court is being asked to decide—in a case challenging a Massachusetts ban on the private possession of a stun gun, or a "portable device or weapon from which an electrical current, impulse, wave or beam is designed to incapacitate temporarily, injure or kill...." The challenge before the justices comes in a burgeoning era in which a hodgepodge of weapons are being constructed at home DIY-style and via 3D-printing technology.

Since its passage, Act 746 has been controversial. The statute has been interpreted different ways, but Tuesday, one man will find out how a judge interprets the law.

On a Tuesday afternoon in May, Richard Chambless decided to walk around his hometown of Bald Knob and do some shopping. He started at McDonald's, walking under the bridge and shopping in two stores before returning to the restaurant to get a drink. It wasn't unusual behavior, except for the fact that the whole time Chambless was carrying his gun on his hip.
 

Man vs. machine: New shotgun shell being marketed for shooting down drones

Hobby drone usage is on the rise, with its privacy implications causing some discomfort. However, an ammunition company has apparently devised a solution: a shotgun shell marketed specifically to shoot down nosy camera drones right out of the sky.

The shells are given the name “Dronemunition” by their seller, Snake River Shooting Products. The packaging encourages buyers to “prepare for the drone apocalypse” with a subheading clarifying that they are referring to “the invasion of privacy” apocalypse that camera drones will bring.
 

FL: Campus carry allows me to avoid becoming a victim

Florida’s proposed “Campus Carry” legislation by Rep. Greg Steube and Sen. Greg Evers is not only about restoring a Constitutional right; it is fundamental to the safety of college students, especially women. As a Hispanic female college student, I know the dangers of being a woman on a university campus.

My father escaped Cuba to come to this country so his children could have freedom, not for his daughters to become victims while getting an education.

Assault rifles are perhaps the most vilified guns in the history of the United States, a weapon of choice for mass murderers Adam Lanza in Newtown and James Holmes in Aurora, Colo.

Section 53-202a of the Connecticut General Statutes defines an assault weapon as “any selective-fire firearm capable of fully automatic, semiautomatic or burst fire at the option of the user.”

For the 17th year in a row, some Florida residents traded in guns for sneakers.

The “Kicks for Guns” program began in 1999 and last year collected 802 guns, but only 21 of them were illegal, Business Insider reported:

Depending on the location one chooses, the weapons can be exchanged for a gift card or sneakers, although it isn’t clear which sneakers are up for the taking.

The National Rifle Association's magazine America's 1st Freedom attacks Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley on its first cover focused on the 2016 presidential race. The issue's feature article outlandishly accuses the former Maryland governor of offering "hope and change to convicted killers and criminals," but the organization's overheated rhetoric is based on unfounded attacks on O'Malley's record.

In an affront to every American who cherishes the Second Amendment, former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been used to name a new Navy warship. Her main claim to fame — surviving an assault by a psychotic homicidal murderer — has been amplified by becoming the poster child for every anti-rights gun-control scheme cooked up by the usual suspects and money-backing enemies of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
 

Movie Theater Dilemma: Beefed-Up Security Has Hollywood, Filmgoers on Edge

Moving too slowly, or too quickly in wake of shootings could worsen situation for studios and theater chains like Regal
Movie theaters are walking a fine line as they step up security in response to the recent deadly attacks at movie theaters in Lafayette, Louisiana and Nashville, Tennessee.

If theaters go too slowly to address safety concerns or wait for the government to act, they could face a massive backlash in the event of another multiplex tragedy. But if they move too quickly, they risk alienating skittish consumers with added security measures that could be expensive, don’t guarantee safety and could even bring added legal liability.

A local group is holding the city of Sheffield accountable, asking them to comply with state law when it comes to carrying or possessing firearms.

The city of Sheffield says they are removing the “no firearms” signs from city parks and the library after a local group brought their concerns to the city council this week.

“When a local government puts up a sign that says you can’t carry in the park or the library, that takes away people’s right to defend themselves and to carry their firearms in those places," said Shoals Second Amendment Leader Jeff Hopper.

Gun Rights Win A Major Victory In Federal Court, And That’s Actually A Good Thing

On the surface, a federal appeals court’s decision in United States v. Meza-Rodriguez concerns a fairly narrow issue — whether “unauthorized non-U.S. citizens within our borders” enjoy Second Amendment gun rights. Should the Supreme Court ultimately conclude that undocumented immigrants do not enjoy these rights, however, that decision could severely harm their ability to remain free from harassment by police. Hidden just one level below the surface in Meza-Rodriguez is the question of whether “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,” which is protected by the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment, applies to undocumented immigrants at all.

Attorneys for the Second Amendment Foundation and Florida Carry have asked a circuit court judge to assess fines of $5,000 against city officials in Tallahassee for failing to repeal local gun control ordinances that conflict with state law, the latest chapter in a legal action filed by the two organizations against the city in May of last year.

The groups are asking for fines to be levied against Mayor Andrew Gillum, former Mayor John Marks and city commissioners Nancy Miller and Gil Ziffer. Gillum formerly served as a city commissioner and succeeded Marks as mayor.

The Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee said today that the 200,000th pistol carry permit was issued this month in Minnesota.

A 2003 change in state law made it easier for applicants to get the permits from county sheriffs, as long as they complete an approved safety course, are law-abiding, not a danger to themselves or others and are not generally prohibited by federal or state law from possessing a firearm.

Morally perverted as well are folks like NRA flack Wayne LaPierre, who throw around terms like "jack-booted thugs" whenever anyone anywhere suggests a radical proposal like, oh, say, keeping guns out of the hands of insane people and violent criminals.

I don't call LaPierre a moral pervert because I disagree with him. I call him a moral pervert because in all the millions of words he has spewed about guns, I do not recall a single mention of what happens to a normal human being after he kills someone, with justification or not.

Hiperfire is launching a modified version of the Enhanced Duty Trigger, the new EDT2. This updated trigger system for ARs has a heavy hammer profile that strikes harder with more momentum, and it still offers faster lock times than standard trigger parts.

Otherwise the EDT2 will be familiar to Hyperfire users. It’s based on the same design that brings light, adjustable performance to the table for less than $100. In addition to its two-stage trigger pull the EDT2 has a short, positive reset.

A Wisconsin appellate court on Thursday ruled that the right to keep and bear arms extends to all individuals in the United States, including “unauthorized aliens.”

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in United States v. Meza-Rodriguez decided “the term ‘the people’ in the Second Amendment has the same meaning as it carries in other parts of the Bill of Rights” and that the framers could have used the term “citizen” to bestow the right, as they had in other parts of the Constitution, but chose not to.
