During the Chattanooga shooting, one Navy officer, Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White, fired back at the gunman with a personal firearm. The Navy immediately launched an investigation to determine potential wrongdoing.

But an official with insider knowledge of the investigation just confirmed with Stars and Stripes that White will not be charged with discharging a firearm on federal property, contradicting reports from columnist Allen West, who stated that he had received a text message saying that the Navy planned to charge White, a father of six children.

According to Henry County Superior Court records, the grand jury returned a no bill of indictment against Jared Lyon, 15, during its July 9 session.

Police are searching for the second suspect in a home invasion that took place in the 1500 block of Hilbish Avenue just after 2 p.m. Friday afternoon.

Neighbors tell Channel 3 News they heard three shots coming from the house. They said they then saw a tall man running out of the house, headed for the woods.

Investigators said an occupant at the home shot the suspect's partner dead in what appeared to be an act of self defense. Police said the homeowner, identified as David Hillis, grabbed a gun and shot one of the suspects.
 

CO: Government needs drone rules

Even a gun-control freak like me would have to concede that one undeniably beneficial use of a good rifle — besides hunting or self-defense — is the purpose for which William Meredith used it: to shoot down a drone, like the one hovering above his sunbathing daughter.

Columnist Stephen Carter is right on target in asserting that because regulations regarding the use of the new drone technology are sparse and unsettled, many citizens will take matters into their own hands. The government, in kowtowing to business and hobby interests, has flubbed its responsibility in this regard, and there will be a price to pay.

The walk-through tells Norquist's side of the story — a side that Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel believes. According to Norquist, he feared Cordes would hurt or kill him, and the fear escalated to fatal violence he said was in self-defense.

On Monday, Hummel filed a motion to dismiss the two charges he'd filed against Norquist two days after the shooting — one count each for murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
 

FL: Bills to allow guns on campus revived for 2016 legislative session

Controversial bills that would arm people on college and school campuses with concealed weapons will be back before the legislature in 2016.

The two National Rifle Association-backed proposals failed to pass the House and Senate in 2015. Lawmakers filed them again this week for the legislative session that starts in January.

One (SB 68, HB 4001), introduced by Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, and Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, would allow anyone with a concealed carry license from the state to bring their guns with them on college campuses.

The other (SB 72), by Evers, would give school districts the power to arm a current or former member of the military or law enforcement in each school.

A group of residents in northern Idaho lined up outside a U.S. Navy veteran's house on Thursday to protest claims that federal officials are planning on confiscating the man's weapons.

Idaho Republican state Rep. Heather Scott of Blanchard said the Veteran Affairs office has sent a letter to John Arnold of Priest River warning him that he cannot possess or purchase firearms.

The protest —spearheaded by Scott— attracted roughly 100 people. Among them were Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, who promised to stand guard against any federal attempts to remove Arnold's guns, and Republican Washington state Rep. Matthew Shea of Spokane Valley, who described the event as a "defiance against tyranny."

TN: Williamson County attorney says guns can be banned from fair

The Williamson County attorney says that the fair kicking off Friday can still ban guns despite a recent state attorney general’s opinion suggesting otherwise.

County Attorney Bobby Cook argues that Williamson County Fair Association could still ban guns because the state law eliminating gun bans at parks should not apply because the site of the fair – the Agricultural Exposition Park – is more of “a civic center or other building facility” where firearms can still be prohibited.

Several New York retailers, including Walmart, Sears and Amazon, have agreed to remove realistic toy guns from their shelves and pay $300,000 in penalties as part of a settlement with the state.

The state attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, announced on Monday that his office had found more than 6,400 toy guns sold from 2012 to 2014 that violated preexisting New York laws, which ban the sale of black, blue, silver, or aluminum toy guns. Instead, these must be brightly colored or translucent.

Tennessee Adjt. Gen. Max Haston announced today that Tennessee Army and Air National Guard members with valid state-issued gun carry permits will be allowed to carry weapons at state armories and facilities.

The step comes more than two weeks after 24-year-old Mohommad Abdulazeez killed five U.S. servicemen in Chattanooga. Gov. Bill Haslam later directed Haston to come up with a plan in response to demands from many that National Guard members needed to be able to protect themselves from similar attacks.

Wilson told me this morning that his legal team will be appealing this denial of motion for injunction on the State Department to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals soon. Wilson was unimpressed with Pitman's decision, saying it more or less just "accepted the government's arguments entirely, even the specious equivalence of posting technical data being an export of defense articles."
 

Baltimore Sun: Individual Right To Keep, Bear Arms Created in 2008

On August 7, the Baltimore Sun ran a column ubiquitously examining the chasm between Americans who arm themselves for self-defense and Americans who do not. But on a deeper level, the column asserted that the meaning of the Second Amendment has been “in dispute” for “most of the nation’s history” and only came to be viewed as a protection of individual rights after the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008).

This is the same argument that the LA Times put forth on May 22 and one which The New York Times as also been peddling since the Heller decision came down.

One of the complaints sometimes levied at gun magazines centers on the price tag of the firearms reviewed. Top-shelf 1911s, high-end AR-15s and the latest innovations in the firearm industry are frequent fodder for articles, leaving some to comment they cannot afford any of the firearms covered in the shooting media. Well, here’s a handgun—complete with a steel lockbox and secure cable—almost everyone can afford.

His regional group has about 40 members; 10 of them are women. The group has turned away potential members who seem to fall into a fringe category.

“They’re kind of on the side of, ‘Let’s take over the government,’ ” Boyd said.

Other members have been kicked out for racist remarks. And the group has a strict no alcohol policy during meetings and training.

“A lot of people will be carrying (guns) and that hits on safety,” Boyd said.

Following his remarks at the Red State Gathering Friday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican presidential candidate, was confronted by Second Amendment activists demanding to know why he has not thrown out the charges against a North Carolina man who was found with a firearm by New Jersey police.

Christie was hurried off stage when he decided against talking to reporters en masse that is covering the Red State event and spent most of his remaining time there hiding from the media.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on Friday signed into law a city ban on possession of high-capacity gun magazines.

The city council unanimously passed the ordinance barring within city limits possession of magazines holding ten or more rounds on July 28. LA is now the largest city in the state to pass the gun-control law, closing a loophole that existed in state law that banned the sale of high-capacity magazines.

Pruett cited Idaho Statute 18-33-02 which states that the sheriff must retain [the fee] for the purpose of performing the duties required in this section.”

“But it’s very clear in there that money collected is for enforcing the provision in the concealed weapons permit process,” Pruett said. “Could the sheriff potentially say, ‘I need to recarpet or retile the room where the guy is standing who is doing the concealed weapons permit stuff’? Sure, we probably would do that. But recarpeting and retiling your entire office, buying firearms, buying a vehicle — none of that has anything to do with the concealed weapons permit process.”
 

Guns, Guns, Everywhere – Except at GOP Presidential Candidate Functions – No Guns Allowed — A**wipe Hypocrites

The Republican presidential debate was made into a “gun free” zone, much to the dismay of staunch pro-gun conservatives, reported Salon. Several of the candidates have taken pro-gun stances, but the “gun free” policy at the debate last night proves that preaching the Second Amendment is just a tactic to win votes.

Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena has a firm no-gun policy that also applies to people with concealed carry permits. It’s too dangerous to allow firearms inside of a large venue that holds thousands of people. When a representative of St. Anselm College was asked whether guns would be allowed during its hosting of the GOP debate next February, the representative said “absolutely not.”

A Navy veteran in Idaho says a bill is trying to take away his right to bear arms.

John Arnold served our country in the Navy and fought during the Vietnam War.

In September, Arnold suffered a stroke.

An assessment by Veterans Affairs determined that Arnold could not manage his affairs, meaning that he was in violation of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act.
