There are different legal standards for the two actions, the Michigan Court of Appeals correctly concludes (in the Siwatu-Salama Ra case).

Here is the news you don't get from the mainstream media. Again this week, responsible gun owners defend themselves and the people they love. Self-defense instructor Tony Simon joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or were they well trained?

Yesterday the Michigan Court of Appeals handed down a decision in a highly public and very controversial case that gun owners across the United States should applaud. In short, it demonstrates and validates the value of armed self-defense even when you do not pull the trigger and — crucially — have no cause to pull the trigger. It justifies the brandishing of a gun as pre-emptive measure to block the use of unlawful force.

After Trump reiterated his point to a different audience, Martelle followed up in another column: “Yes, of course the person pulls the trigger. That’s how guns work. But if there was no gun in the person’s hand, there would be no trigger to pull, a reality the president conveniently omits.”

Well, anti-gun advocates often conveniently omit reality as well: guns can save lives as well as take them. We’ve seen two recent examples in Polk County.
 

Trump can't support 'red flag' laws and the Constitution simultaneously

Given the mass murders due to gun violence last weekend with 22 in El Paso, Texas, nine in Dayton, Ohio, 11 in Chicago and four in Baltimore; it is easy to see why President Donald Trump would seek a national solution – it is a national problem. Still, the Constitution specifically forbids a national solution – even a state solution – without a new amendment to the Constitution altering the Second Amendment, because self-defense is an individual right, even a God-given right, and not a right from government.

In a rare move, the Michigan Court of Appeals has reversed the jury conviction of an environmental justice activist sentenced to two years in prison for brandishing a gun during a 2017 altercation in Detroit.

Siwatu-Salama Ra claims she acted in self-defense when she pointed her licensed, unloaded weapon at another woman. Ra, her mother and niece all testified at trial that the woman was enraged, and using her car as a weapon to threaten Ra’s mother and two-year-old daughter.

The Supreme Court seems to have interpreted the Second Amendment as a right of every law-abiding citizen to own just about any conceivable firearm or accessory for self-defense, even though the word “self-defense” doesn’t appear in the amendment. This raises a very serious question. Do firearms actually provide self-protection?

Gmoser said it was a close call.

Most now understand that “red flag” laws violate the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights and many Republicans, including the president, now seem willing to join Democrats, after the recent shootings in El Paso and Dayton by crazed left-and right-wing extremists, to put dents in the Second Amendment hoping these laws “might” somehow help.

But few realize they also virtually emasculate the Bill of Rights. What follows are the amendments “red flag” laws damage and how.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
