A Roseville pawn shop was the spot of an attempted smash-and-grab burglary early Thursday morning, but the theft was stopped by an armed store employee who shot back and scared the suspects off, police said.

It was about 5:20 a.m. when a large vehicle, believed to be a pickup truck, drove into the glass windows at the front of Motor City Pawn, which is on the 26500 block of Gratiot.

A pickup truck, a tan 2007 GMC four-door, pulls up past the entrance to store, then backs into it. Three men get out; one rushes ahead, two others stay back a bit. Within seconds, all three men, fleeing gunfire, pile back into the pickup, and it flees from the scene.

During the attack, the infant slipped out of his hands, but he was able to catch the baby before it struck the concrete porch in front of the residence. Hutchinson continued to be attacked by the man.

Hutchinson - who was armed with a concealed handgun and is a lawful concealed weapons holder - fired one round at the man, stopping the attack.

The decedent was struck in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene. Police noted later that the decedent has a lengthy criminal history and was a registered sex offender.

Hutchinson gave a statement to the police that was consistent with the information provided by witnesses of the shooting and was ultimately released.
 

Using .22 Magnum for Self-Defense

Nobody wants to get shot, and just getting shot might be enough to convince an attacker you’re not worth the trouble. Actually, the mere introduction of a gun into a confrontation is generally enough to change the game. If you don’t believe this, consider how successful criminals are at getting what they want just by pointing a gun at someone. Let’s also acknowledge that in some instances, extremely compact pocket handguns chambered in calibers like .22 Magnum (also known as .22 WMR) can be a good idea, if not the only answer.

The victim testified earlier in the week that Delavega assaulted him, bitting his scrotum in the process after telling the woman he was moving out.

But jurors heard a different story on Thursday when Delavega took the stand. She testified she wanted him to move out and that her ex-boyfriend pinned her down and was hitting her.

Delavega said she started biting him in self defense.

The case of the retired Tampa police captain accused of shooting a man in a Pasco County movie theater will return to court Friday as defense lawyers seek a new stand your ground hearing.

Attorneys for Curtis Reeves have renewed their call for a judge to grant him immunity from prosecution under the controversial self-defense law, citing a recent change in the law, which shifted the burden of proof in such cases to prosecutors.

A man was caught Friday afternoon after a homeowner reportedly caught him trying to burglarize his home in the 4000 block of Stonebridge Circle.

Oklahoma City police arrived at the home about 1:10 p.m. to find the homeowner holding the 44 year old suspect at gunpoint.

The resident told police he was working in his home office before 1 p.m. when he heard an open door chime from his security system.
 

Betsy DeVos’s reported guns-in-schools plan would make schools less safe

While there is no good research specifically on arming teachers (which by itself should raise red flags, given that policy should be evidence-based), there is plenty of evidence on what happens where there are more guns around. It’s pretty clear: Where there are more guns, there are more gun deaths.

The logic is simple: The presence of a gun allows otherwise normal circumstances to escalate into deadly violence. If a teacher has a gun around, she or one of her students is more likely to fire it — accidentally or deliberately — than if a gun wasn’t around.

A new study out from the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that contrary to the perception often seen in the national media, more and more Americans are embracing their right to self-defense with the number of concealed carry permits in the U.S. jumping to over 17.25 million this past year. That’s an increase of 890,000 permits in just the last year.

This new report also comes as students across the country prepare to go back to school and states like Texas are leading the way with armed guards to protect teachers and students while other states still lag behind. There are currently eight states that also allow teachers to carry weapons in all primary school settings.

The Crime Prevention Research Center’s (CPRC) recently released “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States: 2018” report found that despite a new norm in gun sales, the number of people getting a permit to carry for self-defense continues to climb. “In 2018, the number of concealed handgun permits soared to over 17.25 million,” it states, “a 273 percent increase since 2007.” CRPC President John R. Lott Jr. said that the numbers now show 7.14 percent of American adults have permits.

U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney issued the ruling in a case involving William and Jill Johnson and Brian and Naomi Mason, all of Ontonagon. While the judge dismissed claims from the Masons, he allowed the Johnsons to continue. The judge dismissed a motion by the state to dismiss the case.

In deciding that the Johnsons have a plausible case, Judge Maloney observed, "Storing firearms in an inoperable condition makes them useless for the defense of hearth and home, which implicates the Second Amendment....The need for self-defense rarely comes with advance notice; it occurs spontaneously, often at times specifically chosen for the expected vulnerability of the intended victim."

Can a state attorney general unilaterally reinterpret a gun control statute to retroactively ban firearms that had been openly bought and sold within the state throughout the law’s 20-year history? William G. Young, a federal judge in Massachusetts, said “yes” in Workman v. Healy, the NRA-supported challenge to the attorney general’s ban. That opinion illustrates why President Donald Trump’s appointments to the federal judiciary are so important.

If you pay even the smallest amount of attention to trends in concealed carry, you’ll know that right now, appendix carry is one of the hottest. For those of you who don’t know, or perhaps are trapped in 1989, appendix carry is where you position your carry gun in the region of your appendix; essentially down the front of your pants. There are tremendous advantages to the appendix-carry position, there are some disadvantages and there are quite a few myths, rumors, exaggerations and misunderstandings.

KS: Kansas Professor Urges Students To Not Bring Guns 'Wherever I Am'

A University of Kansas professor urged students in his class to not bring guns “wherever I am present,” in a syllabus, even though state law requires the school to allow the concealed carry of handguns.

“Although you may be entitled by law to carry a gun, I urge you not to do so,” professor Eric Rath wrote in the syllabus for the online course, “The Samurai.”

Rath does not want firearms brought to class, however, he also requested students to not bring them “wherever I am present.”

Liberals don’t seem to understand that there are judges who actually follow the rules, not their personal views. In addition, Kavanaugh is hardly the wide-eyed radical gun control opponent advocates paint him to be. He believes that “regulations on the sale, possession, or use of guns are permissible” and that the Heller decision “largely preserved the status quo of gun regulation in the United States.”

Some people depend for success on being able to fool others – swindlers, con men, fraudsters, and too many political climbers. That applies to Montana's Governor Steve Bullock (D-Montana) who is term-limited in Montana but now grasping at the straws of national office.

In order to get elected to statewide office in Montana, Bullock had to claim enough support for the Second Amendment to fool some swing voters. If he had not successfully asserted support for gun rights, he would not have been elected to any statewide office in Montana.

A graduate teaching assistant has been criticized after trying to alienate and target students who conceal carry weapons in her classroom, labelling them as “absurd, antisocial, and frightening” and forcing them to stand in a “3X3 taped square.”

“If you feel that it is somehow at all appropriate to bring a gun to class (hint: it is not…),” the controversial University of Utah teacher wrote in a section of her syllabus, then the students would be forced to stand in a “Second Amendment zone.”

This November, we face a vicious attack on those freedoms. The events of the past two years have emboldened those who would take away our right to keep and bear arms, to the point that many are openly admitting that they want to repeal the Second Amendment. To that end, they continue to press for dramatic restrictions on our liberties, including banning common rifles and imposing other harsh restrictions on our rights, such as firearm and ammunition registration.

SB 1968 would place a lifetime ban on anyone admitted to a mental health facility more than once a year who is a danger to themselves or others.

SB 1100 would raise the minimum age to buy any fire arm from 18 to 21. This would apply to long guns in the state since the restriction exists for handguns.

SB 1177 bans civilians from buying more than one firearm in 30 days this would apply to long guns since the age to buy a handgun is already 21. Law enforcement and gun dealers would be exempt.

The last person you expect your kid to be bullied by is his school principal.

But that's exactly what Lisa Riley, the mother of a recent high school graduate from Carlsbad, New Mexico, says happened to her son.

Last year, Principal Adam García Amador of Carlsbad High School allegedly tried to “bully” Will Riley into silence as he planned a nationwide walkout in support of the Second Amendment.
