MI: Detroit Firearm Instructors Unite To Give 1,938 Women Free Shooting Skills

Firearm Instructors united August 15th and 16th in Taylor – a Detroit suburb – to provide free firearm training to 1,938 metro-Detroit women. They answered a call for assistance by Rick Ector, a Detroit Firearm Instructor, who conducts an annual program to give women a free range safety briefing and a free shooting lesson. Last year, 814 local women were trained by the program. At that point in time, it was the program's highest-ever attendance total.

The program was created by Ector 9 years ago after watching a local story on the news about a woman's lifeless and naked body being found in a deserted field. He was inspired to ask four fellow firearm instructors he knew to donate their time to help him give women a free shooting lesson.

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw out California’s ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, Friday, Aug. 14, saying the law violates the U.S. Constitution’s protection of the right to bear firearms. There is a story from The Associated Press online at www.myvalleynews.com outlining this decision.

The court found that magazines are protected and “commonly owned.” The ban “substantially burdened” the right of self-defense and the state’s ban was not the “least restrictive means” to achieve its interests.

Oblivious to a changing world, political figures are pushing policies for which the moment has passed.

Far from the seats of political power, guns are very popular right now. FBI records of background checks, an indicator of gun sales from licensed dealers, hit an all-time high of 3.9 million in June, up from 2.3 million a year earlier and 1.9 million in June of 2018. The numbers remained high in July, at 3.6 million background checks.

More importantly, industry surveys say that many of those background checks and subsequent purchases involve new gun owners, not just established firearms fanciers adding to personal collections.
 

Mark McCloskey to Newsmax TV: Media Race-Baiting Case of Self Defense

The media has painted the St. Louis couple who are facing charges for felonious use of weapons as a case of race, according to Mark McCloskey on Newsmax TV, distracting from the real case of self defense and Second Amendment rights.

"Every article starts with 'white St. Louis attorneys,'" McCloskey told Wednesday's "Spicer & Co.," calling out the race-baiting of media coverage and political attacks. "We get hundreds of letters of support. No calls of support, no letter of support, ever mentions race at all – our race, the race of anybody else.

"But all of the hate mail, all of the derogatory articles start and end with race. And to make this a racial issue as opposed to a self-defense issue could not be further from the truth."

Montanan's have a heritage of being strong supporters of the Secnd Amendment. A large majority of the households in our state own firearms. In fact, Montanans have the highest percentage of gun ownership among all 50 states.

According to the National Rifle Association's website (NRA-PVF), Democratic Senate candidate, Steve Bullock, is given an F rating. This grade seems to be contrary to the claims made by Steve Bullock in his campaign ads.

Montana already has one senator who dances to the beat of Nancy Pelosi's drum. We cannot afford a second one.

Numerous commentators claim that all available evidence shows that Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self-defense when he opened fire on protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The teen is accused of killing two protesters.
Rittenhouse, 17, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder over the shooting of three demonstrators – two of whome died – during riots in the city on Tuesday night.

Although painted as a bloodthirsty white supremacist by some journalists and activists, multiple observers have made the case that Rittenhouse had good intentions and pulled the trigger as a last resort.

TUCKER CARLSON set off a firestorm of criticism on Wednesday by describing a 17-year-old Trump supporter who opened fire on protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Tuesday, killing two, as a well-meaning kid who decided he “had to maintain order” in the Democrat-run state because “no one else would.” But the Fox News host was just surfacing an idea that had already spread widely on the far-right.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power." [Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)]
