The two men charged with stealing 36 guns from an Anchorage firearms dealer had been arrested together in connection with a different Anchorage theft in June and were out on bail when the guns were stolen, court records show.

Seth Kaufman, 31, and Christopher Kratsas-Derr, 27, face federal charges in connection with the theft of the guns from EDC Alaska, an Anchorage gun and knife shop, early on the morning of Sept. 7.

In separate arraignment hearings Tuesday in federal court in Anchorage, attorneys for both men said they pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The men are charged with one count each of firearms theft from a federally licensed dealer.

A study reported this week in JAMA Pediatrics found that children who watched a movie excerpt in which characters used firearms were more interested in playing with a handgun than children who watched an expurgated version from which images of firearms had been excised. The researchers think their findings could be important in reducing fatal firearm accidents involving children. Jenny Anderson, who wrote a Quartz story about the study, thinks it tells us something about the roots of gun violence. Here is why they are wrong.

The 7 Investigators are digging deeper into the tragic incident of a child getting ahold of a gun and shooting two other young kids inside a child care home in Dearborn.

The State of Michigan does not ban guns from being kept inside home care or child care facilities.

State officials also confirm that the home on Harding Street in Dearborn where the morning shooting happened is not licensed. The owners Samantha and Timothy Eubanks could be guilty of a misdemeanor for that, based on state laws.

Alabama voters picked Roy Moore over incumbent Sen. Luther Strange during a Republican runoff election Tuesday to fill Jeff Sessions’ vacated U.S. Senate seat.

Strange, who had the backing of the NRA and Trump, who adopted the gun lobby’s views during his campaign, vowed to support Trump’s agenda to take on the establishment and advance conservative issues.

Yet, Moore had the backing of other prominent conservatives including former Trump advisor Steve Bannon and more extreme gun rights organizations like Gun Owners of America.

The NRA spent roughly seven figures on Strange ads and to raise public doubt about Moore’s dedication to the Second Amendment.

Trailblazer Firearms has released the LifeCard collapsible gun that is “no bigger than a credit card when folded.”
The gun is chambered in .22 long rifle and is a single action, single-shot firearm that opens in a manner similar to a Leatherman Multi-Tool.

When folded, it has roughly the same length and width as a credit card. The difference is its thickness, which is half an inch. The gun weighs seven ounces unloaded.

We called ATF spokeswoman Mary Markos to ask what was behind the surge. Markos declined to pinpoint a specific reason, but did note that the agency had ramped up outreach efforts to police departments around the country encouraging them to submit guns for tracing.

“We are doing more to promote firearms tracing,” she said. “More agencies have utilized the system and have found value in [it].
 

GA: Professors Take Georgia’s Campus-Carry Law to Court

Six Georgia professors filed suit in state court Monday to stop a law that allows licensed concealed carriers to bring guns onto campus.

The complaint, brought against Governor Nathan Deal and Attorney General Chris Carr, argues that the state’s guns-on-campus law infringes on the University System of Georgia’s authority over its 30 schools.

In July, Georgia became the 12th state to allow concealed guns on college campuses. Governor Deal signed the campus-carry bill a year after issuing an emphatic veto that invoked the Founding Fathers’ aversion to weaponry in institutions of higher learning, language that the plaintiffs reference in their suit.

As the mourning maternal aunt of Thomas A. Dickinson, gunned down in the middle of the desert after a verbal altercation, I am heartened to see Tim Steller's column in which he clearly conveys alarm with our self-defense law, which raises monumental concerns in its written interpretation and egregious failure to be effectively applied in the defense of victims in court.

Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin said no charges will be filed in the Aug. 26 killing of an Allentown man, saying the shooting “appears to have been justified as self-defense,” according to a news release issued Wednesday.

Authorities provided no further details about the circumstances that led up to the killing, other than to say the shooting appears to have been justified and “no criminal charges can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt,” the news release states. Montanez lived in the 1900 block of East Cedar Street, authorities say.

It's been said in order to take two steps forward, sometimes you must begin with a step back. I don't know who originated that piece of wisdom, but Smith & Wesson definitely took heed of this advice when it once again chambered the .357 Mag. in a K-frame revolver and offered its L-frame revolver chambered in .44 Mag. in the revamped Combat Magnum revolver lineup.

To be frank, Rodney Class appears to be what Second Amendment friends and foes alike might call a gun nut. He allegedly told the FBI after his arrest that he is a “constitutional bounty hunter” who travels around the country with guns and other weapons in order to help enforce federal criminal laws against judges who he believes have acted unlawfully. His case, however, presents a general and important question of criminal procedure on which the courts of appeals have divided and that Supreme Court precedent does not clearly answer.

Luckily, a deal was hashed out between the governor and Virginia Republicans to avoid this egregious attack on gun rights. The reciprocity agreements remained. Yet, that doesn’t mean Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun minions are giving up. They’re mounting yet another effort to try and shake up the state, pouring more money into down ticket races this year. It’s the third invasion of Virginia (via WaPo):

While Democrats around the country are wrestling with the question of how vocally candidates should speak out against guns in the 2018 midterm elections, in my home state of Virginia, the Democrats running for statewide office have fully embraced a radical anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment platform. The candidate for lieutenant governor, Justin Fairfax, has expressed support for mandatory insurance for gun owners, a return to the gun rationing days of Virginia’s “one gun a month” law, and so-called “universal” background checks, which have done nothing to stop the record high levels of violence in places like Seattle and Baltimore (where these laws are already in place).
