You might never need to defend yourself. That depends on both luck and skill. You can defend yourself with more than good luck, but only if you are prepared.

We did the research, and self-defense happens.

A Georgia boy is being treated for rabies after he was attacked by a raccoon on his family’s front porch last week. Chandler Mahaffey, 4, was attacked on Thursday, his mother said, and was found in the grips of the rabid animal’s paws.

“They got into a tussle on the floor and he was trying to fight the raccoon off of him, and as he tried to fight him off, the raccoon kept holding on to him and biting him repeatedly,”

Mahaffey said she then shot and killed the animal, and rushed her son to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.

Submitters note: Bloomberg and his liberal supporters would have you believe that defensive gun uses never occur and prefer that this woman not own a gun.

A 29-year-old Kansas woman who was arrested after her boyfriend was stabbed to death has been released from jail after she claimed the killing was self-defense.

Sumner County Kerwin Spencer says Ashley Pearson was arrested on suspicion of murder after her boyfriend, 25-year-old Kyle Hill, died Saturday morning at a home the two shared.

Spencer says Pearson gave a statement two days later saying she acted in self-defense. He said Wednesday the investigation is continuing but her story fits the definition of self-defense under Kansas law.
 

Drug and gun laws conspire to deprive people of rights

When a stranger forced his way into her apartment, tackled her, punched her repeatedly and tried to cover her mouth with a cloth, Krissy Noble did what she thought was necessary to protect herself and her unborn baby.

She grabbed a handgun from the coffee table and shot the man three times. Then she ran to a neighbor’s apartment and asked her to call the police.

Although local prosecutors agreed that the shooting was justified, Noble faces charges that could put her behind bars for years, thanks to a marijuana conviction that made it illegal for her to possess firearms. Her case shows how drug prohibition and indiscriminate gun laws conspire to deprive people of the constitutional right to armed self-defense.

A controversial firearm ordinance moved forward at the Sept. 19 City Council meeting. A draft of the ordinance reads, “No person shall keep a firearm within any residence unless the firearm is stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock,” according to an attachment in the agenda packet for the meeting. The only exceptions according to the attachment, are if the firearm is carried on a person (assuming they’re following other existing firearm ordinances,) or if the “firearm is under the control of a person who is a peace officer… .” During the meeting, the council directed city staff to draft a more concrete form of the ordinance to be officially introduced to the council at a later date.
 

GA: Georgia's Kemp: School safety 'has nothing to do' with guns

Georgia's Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp has unveiled a $90 million proposal for school security focused on mental health and local control. But absent from his plan was any mention of the topic that has dominated the national conversation around school safety: guns.

"This is a school safety proposal. This has nothing to do with Second Amendment protections or gun control ideas that my opponent might have," Kemp said, referring to Democrat Stacey Abrams.

WY: Reflections On The Fatal Grizzly Bear Mauling In Wyoming

Whenever a human is killed by a bear in Greater Yellowstone it sets off a chain reaction of speculation.

What did the bear do? What was the person doing? What was the setting? What were the circumstances and context for the attack? What does the emerging forensic evidence tell us?

Often and unfortunately, whenever the national media gets involved and urban reporters from outside the region pen stories, the description of details can turn outlandish, reflecting the writer’s inherent bias of visceral fear associated with grizzlies even if they have never seen or encountered a real bear in their life.
 

In Search Of… The Perfect Holster

Everyone has their mission in life. Roald Amundsen felt compelled to find and reach the South Pole for before anyone else. Actor Tom Cruise spent decades pursuing his goal of becoming the undisputed Archduke of Crazy. I’ve got my cross to bear as well. My mission? Finding the perfect holster for concealed carry purposes.

I’ve spent a couple of decades on the job and have hundreds of discarded holsters to show for it. At the recommendation of my therapist, I even wrote a book about concealed carry holsters. Unfortunately, even if it outsells The 50 Shades of Grey, I’ll never recoup all the money spent on leather and Kydex gear.

FL: Second Amendment must change with the times

It's way past time to modernize the Second Amendment. Yes people kill people; guns don't kill people. But guns don’t go off by themselves.

Guns in the hands of people are dangerous, even in the hands of people who are trained in their use. I'm certainly not advocating disarming the police. However, the recent killing of a Dallas, Texas individual in his own apartment by a policewoman is just the most recent demonstration how things can go wrong concerning guns.

The National Rifle Association endorsed Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee's U.S. Senate race Wednesday, and went on the attack immediately, slamming her Democratic opponent Phil Bredesen as a "vote for anti-gun leadership."

The NRA announced its support of the conservative Williamson County congressman in a news release that hailed Blackburn's opposition to "the Pelosi/Schumer/Bloomberg gun control agenda."

The gun rights advocate who has led a multi-year legal battle against the government to publish plans for 3D printed firearms has been charged with having sex with an underage girl.

Cody Wilson, 31, of Austin, Texas, has been charged with sexual assault of a minor, according to an arrest warrant filed in a Travis County court. The victim — a female under the age of 17 — told investigators that Wilson paid her $500 for sex at an Austin hotel on Aug. 15.

Wilson, using the screen name “Sanjuro,” met the victim on the dating website SugarDaddyMeet.com and they exchanged phone numbers. Via text message, Wilson described himself as a “big deal” and told her his name.

Two constitutional rights advocates have filed a new lawsuit against Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey after she denied them access to public records about “3D printed” guns and related issues.

Plaintiffs Brent Carlton and Brandon Combs each filed two requests for public records with the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office. But on August 29, Lorraine A.G. Tarrow, Healey’s Assistant Attorney General & Records Access Officer, sent Carlton and Combs a letter denying all of the requests, leading to the lawsuit.

A new legal maneuver commonly known as the "Red Flag" law allows law enforcement to file a "risk protection" motion in court to take away a person's guns if they have made recent threats of violence or if they have serious mental health issues.

It can be used even if the person hasn't been arrested or convicted.

A California law allowing certain people to ask judges to temporarily bar individuals who are believed to be dangerous from having guns is being used infrequently, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

The law, which took effect in 2016, allows family members and police officers to seek gun violence restraining orders that can remain in effect for up to a year, but the Los Angeles Times reported that state Department of Justice records show there were fewer than 200 orders issued.

Galvano’s comments came after NRA Tallahassee lobbyist Marion Hammer, a former national president of the gun-rights organization, called him out for accepting a $200,000 contribution from Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, which has been heavily backed by Bloomberg. The contribution went to a political committee known as Innovate Florida, which is chaired by Galvano.

Hammer, a longtime powerful lobbyist in Tallahassee, sent out an “alert” Monday to members of the NRA and Unified Sportsmen of Florida about the Sept. 4 contribution to Galvano’s committee.
 

HI: Expected: Hawaii Files For Ninth Circuit En Banc Ruling On Right To Bear Arms

On 24 July, 2018, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit upheld the right to bear arms outside the home. As expected, the State of Hawaii waited until the last possible day, then filed a petition for the Ninth Circuit to hear the case en banc, that is, by the whole court.

Because the Ninth Circuit is so large and awkward [President Trump should break this court up] compared to other circuits, an en banc hearing of the Ninth involves 11 judges chosen at random, out of the 23 or 24 judges (depending on confirmation hearings) on the Ninth Circuit.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's. — Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp
