A shooting early Friday morning left a masked intruder dead on Madison’s north side and has raised questions about whether the action by one of the home’s residents to kill the intruder was justified under the state’s castle doctrine.

While it is a decision that will ultimately be made by the Dane County district attorney, Madison Police Chief Shon Barnes indicated at a Friday morning news conference that it might apply to the shooting.

A federal judge has struck down a Texas law preventing individuals aged 18 to 20 years from carrying handguns in public, in the first major court ruling on Second Amendment rights since the Supreme Court recognized a constitutional right to carry firearms in public for self-defense.

Previously, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit upheld the state law, but that was before the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling.

A federal judge ruled Thursday that a Texas law that restricted adults under 21 from carrying handguns was unconstitutional.

Texas state law has prohibited adults under the age of 21 from obtaining a concealed carry permit or carrying a handgun outside of their home, according to the Texas Tribune.

The Firearms Policy Coalition, a firearm rights nonprofit organization, filed a lawsuit on behalf of two plaintiffs who claimed that their constitutional rights were being infringed because they could not legally carry their firearms.

A new Rasmussen survey revealed how 62 percent of likely voters “think the problem of bias in the news media is getting worse,” and also noted 52 percent of voters “don’t trust the political news they’re getting, compared to 32% who do.”

According to the Rasmussen survey, “More Republicans (76%) than Democrats (54%) or unaffiliated voters (54%) consider ‘fake news’ a Very Serious problem in the media.” Those “unaffiliated” voters often identify as “Independents.”
 

TX: Texas Judge’s Ruling Upholds Second Amendment Rights for 18-to-21-Year-Olds

Judge Mark Pittman ultimately found that based on the Second Amendment’s text, “as informed by Founding-Era history and tradition, the Court concludes that the Second Amendment protects against this prohibition.”

“To the extent that Texas’s statutory scheme … prohibits law-abiding 18-to-20-year-olds from carrying handguns for self-defense outside the home based solely on their age, this statutory scheme violates the Second Amendment, as incorporated against the States via the Fourteenth Amendment,” Pittman said in his ruling (pdf).

The University of Findlay Office of Campus Safety recently reminded the campus community that a new law regarding guns in Ohio went into effect over the summer and explained how it applies to them.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed the legislation into law on March 14 and it took effect in June. The new law allows people to carry concealed firearms with no training, background check, or permit.

The Deerfield Police Department is strongly urging residents to adhere to strict gun safety and storage. To assist in the practice, the Department has made “gun-locks” available at no cost to Deerfield residents at the Police facility, 850 Waukegan Road, according to the Village's weekly e-newsletter.

Police said guns kept in homes are more likely to be involved in a fatal or nonfatal accidental shooting than to be used in a manner of self-defense.
 

Kimber Rapide Scorpius 9+1 Capacity 9mm 1911: Full Review

The 1911 has been with us for more than a century. One would think that everything that could be done to this category of firearm has already been attempted. The new product development team at Kimber may disagree. Each year Kimber, in Troy, Alabama, pushes the aging platform further and further into the future while maintaining many of the attributes that have made it a classic. This latest evolution is the Scorpius, which is part of the Rapide family. The Scorpius combines time-tested features with new and interesting lines. The Scorpius begins as a full-size 1911 with a stainless steel frame—nothing too exotic about that. But that’s about where the traditional lines end.

I missed learning that a hero is someone with a gun.

Growing up in a Mennonite pacifist home we had rules about what we could and couldn't watch on TV. Shooting programs with guns were off-limits.

One Saturday, my sister and I thought we were getting away with watching the "Lone Ranger." The TV went dark.
 

TX: Texas can’t bar adults under 21 from carrying handguns, federal judge rules

A federal judge in Texas on Thursday struck down a state law barring adults under 21 from carrying handguns, ruling that the age limit violated the Second Amendment.

U.S. District Judge Mark T. Pittman said the Constitution didn’t put an age restriction on the right to bear arms, meaning adults 18 to 20 shouldn’t be prevented from carrying handguns outside the home.

The 23-page opinion leaned heavily on originalism, the conservative legal theory that judges should interpret the Constitution based on the way it was understood when it was written.

This weekend marks Misississippi’s annual Second Amendment Tax Holiday.

As FOX13 found out, it just about makes the state stand alone.

“In the past, we have had ten percent sales, and that doesn’t do good,” Danny Metcalf said.

Danny Metcalf owns a gunshop in Horn Lake. He said, while the tax break has brought in crowds in the past, he has never understood why. He said the bigger sales he’s held in the past haven’t even brought in the crowds he sees on the Second Amendment Tax Holiday.

“But, you have a seven percent off your sales tax, and it’s a boom,” Metcalf said of the holiday weekend.

Mass shooting after mass shooting, the federal government took no action.

"I'm here on this floor to beg, to literally get down on my hands and knees to beg my colleagues," Sen. Chris Murphy said. "Find a path forward here, work with us to find a way to pass laws that make this less likely."
 

NY: The Sale of a Product Responsible for Bloodshed and Fear Is Still Tied to Our Wildlife

Hunters were among the principal users of public lands when Congress imposed the tax 85 years ago, with the passage of the Pittman-Robertson Act. It seemed reasonable, then, to make them pay for their use of the public domain.

But as hunters have become an increasingly smaller slice of American gun owners, it seems reasonable now to ask if they should continue to benefit from a windfall largely financed by gun buyers who don’t hunt. Nearly 19 million guns were sold in the United States last year, a number surpassed only in the previous year, when 21.8 million were sold. Most of these weapons will never be used to fell a deer or duck. More than a few will be used to shoot humans.

Families of children killed in the Uvalde, Texas, school shooting earlier this year will join a gun control protest in the state’s capitol on Saturday.

Gun safety advocacy group March for Our Lives will bring the families, along with survivors of the Santa Fe high school shooting in 2018, to Austin, Texas, to participate in its rally.

“March For Our Lives is rallying with parents who lost children in Uvalde, survivors from Santa Fe, TX, and youth activists from across Texas to show Governor Abbott that Texans are united in demanding immediate action on gun safety,” the organization told The Hill.

A federal appeals court rejected a bid to force a trial judge to speed up the handling of a lawsuit over California’s law banning marketing firearms to children.

The suing gun rights groups “have not demonstrated that this case warrants the intervention of this court by means of the extraordinary remedy of mandamus. Accordingly, the petition is denied,” the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said in a three-line order issued late Thursday.

California Rifle & Pistol Association, Second Amendment Foundation, Junior Sports Magazines Inc., and others on Aug. 24 filed an emergency writ petition with the appellate ...

Two new sickening billboards have appeared in Los Angeles and San Francisco featuring a hooded figure wearing sunglasses along with a menacing facial expression.

“The Texas Miracle died in Uvalde. Don’t move to Texas,” the billboards disgustingly say, along with the slogan “Don’t mess with Texas” crossed out, the Western Journal reported.

The ads appear to be a desperate move to slow the ongoing U-Haul trucks moving residents from the Golden State to the Lone Star state.
 

NH: Encourage companies to stop selling automatic weapons

Today our schools have an even graver responsibility, to protect their students from the violence of a mass shooter. Teachers are taught to direct their students to get under their desk; supposedly this action would protect them from a weapon of war? Why are these weapons even sold to the ordinary citizen?

For the first time in several years, the government has passed laws that touch on protecting our students but it is not enough. Parents are outraged that automatic weapons are readily available. The writers of the Second Amendment certainly never meant for any citizen to own weapons such as these.

Key to understanding what the media gets wrong about gun violence in the District is race and racism, which Muhammad thinks is crucial for journalists to handle with nuance. “In terms of gun violence, the vast majority of both victims and suspects are Black—nearly 90 percent,” he said. “But the additional context that is extremely important is that the vast majority of Black people are not involved in gun violence in D.C.”
 

NY: New concealed-carry rules are a big burden

As many people know, the latest restrictions passed by the New York State Legislature on those who have concealed carry weapon permits take effect on Sept. 1. Because of this new law, the county pistol permit office has been overwhelmed with many questions from current permit holders and received an unprecedented number of new applications for processing. As of Thursday, over the past nine days the pistol permit office had accepted 700 new applications, compared to 1,429 applications in all of 2021.

I want to acknowledge and thank the pistol permit office staff for their efforts to process this voluminous paperwork, and let those who have waited in long lines to submit their applications know that we appreciate their patience.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. — Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
