Cody Wilson Out, Paloma Heindorff In At Defense Distributed

Cody Wilson resigned from Defense Distributed effective Sept 21, 2018 and Paloma Heindorff will be the new Director of DD as well as the CEO of Ghost Gunner. The change will not have any impact on the legal case involving Defense Distributed, SAF, and Conn Williamson that was brought by the Attorney General of Washington State and other AGs. My perspective is that this was a needed change and a good change.

Pro-gun activists and gun owners, take heed that the Democrats want to take your guns away.

They have established this by their campaign promises, if they are elected to office. You all need to vote for Republican candidates to be assured that your Second Amendment rights continue.

I don't like guns.

And, until last Sunday, I had never shot a real gun.

Yes, I have played laser tag, cops and robbers, and other games that require you to use a pretend firearm, but the real thing ... no, not for me.

At my home, we morbidly, and inappropriately, joke that if I owned a gun I would probably shoot myself.

ABC TV 57 news reported back on 07-27-18, in South Bend Indiana, St. Joseph County Police were dispatched to an apartment complex for a call about a possible home invasion.

When officers arrived, they found a 27 year old male subject lying on the apartment floor with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was transported to the hospital and later pronounced dead.

Officers noted the door to the apartment was splintered and debris from the door was spread throughout.

This type of legislation also raises concerns about due process, the possibility of misuse due to false or unsubstantiated allegations, and the effect of this approach on civil rights more generally. The American Civil Liberties Association in one state objected to a GVRO bill, citing “the precedent [the bill] sets for the use of coercive measures against individuals not because they are alleged to have committed any crime, but because somebody believes they might, someday, commit one,” and explaining that “the standard for seeking and issuing an order is so broad it could routinely be used against people who engage in ‘overblown political rhetoric’ on social media…”

In fact, this week we have seen the accusation-equals-conviction narrative elevated to the national level. Several Democrats and pundits have stated expressly that Brett Kavanaugh — indeed, any conservative man — should be presumed guilty and have to prove his innocence. Meanwhile, Democratic men like former President Bill Clinton and — more recently — Rep. Keith Ellison get a pass, even with abundant evidence of their misdeeds.

And government deprivation of our Constitutional rights is far less likely if we can defend ourselves against it. So the Second Amendment has to go.

Are you getting the picture yet?
 

MT: Tester will vote to oppose Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh

Matt Rosendale, the Republican nominee in Montana’s U.S. Senate race, released the following statement today after Jon Tester announced he will be voting no on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court:

“No one should be surprised by this. We always knew Jon Tester was never going to vote for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Time and time again, Tester stands with Chuck Schumer and Washington Democrats over the people of Montana. Tester has opposed both of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominees and supported all of President Obama’s Supreme Court nominees, including Sonia Sotomayor who said, ‘The right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.’ We can’t trust Jon Tester on the Second Amendment.”
 

After Parkland, the gun lobby wants to show it's not so white and male

At this year’s Gun Rights Policy Conference in Chicago, one thing was clear: The gun lobby was blindsided by the national youth-led anti-gun violence movement that grew out of that Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and the pro-gun movement needs to adapt to deal with it.

“Parkland has changed one thing: The other side now has grassroots, for real. It’s not Astroturf anymore. And that is a tremendous change,” Gene Hoffman, co-founder and chairman of the CalGuns Foundation, a gun rights group in California, told the audience at the conference last weekend. “That means we’re going to have to change what we do to effectively counter those people.”
 

WV: PolitiFact: Only ‘Mostly True’ to Point Out Joe Manchin Has ‘D’ Rating from NRA

Manchin’s NRA grade plummeted as a result and Morrisey correctly noted that Manchin currently gets a D-rating from the gun rights group.

But Politifact notes that Manchin got an A+ from the NRA in 2004 followed by an A in 2010, when he promised he would be pro-gun if elected to the Senate. Manchin did not keep that promise, yet Politifact suggests Morrisey’s claim that Manchin has a D-rating is only “mostly true” because he had a much higher grade 14 years ago.
 

Ted Cruz Takes On Evidence Against Kavanaugh As If He Were In A Court

Cruz focused on a certain witness, Leland Keyser, a close friend of Ford, noting that her testimony is the most revealing since she had no incentive to lie when she denied any recollection of Kavanaugh or the alleged event.

“Dr. Ford testified yesterday that Ms. Keyser texted her after submitting that statement to say she was sorry, sorry for not backing up her story. I think that indicates powerfully that her incentives, that if all possible, were to back up the story and yet she didn’t feel she could,” Cruz said. “She had no incentive, no motive to lie. Every incentive to agree with Dr. Ford’s story and yet she did not do so.”

The recent murders of two Iowa female college students are putting a renewed focus on safety and boosting sales for some businesses that sell self-defense products.

Ernie Traugh is the owner of Cedar Valley Outfitters, a gun shop in Marion. He says over the last few weeks the most popular item he has seen parents buying is Mace, usually for their daughters.

I-1639 unfairly targets and penalizes responsible 18 to 20 year olds. Washington’s law-abiding adults aged 18-20 are legally responsible enough to vote, get married, purchase a home, sign a contract, and serve in our military. Yet I-1639’s proponents want you to believe these same adults cannot be trusted to defend themselves or their families and are attempting to use the crimes of a few as a justification to curtail the rights of many.
 

CA: California governor signs bill to raise age requirement to 21 for purchase of rifles, shotguns

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a slew of gun control measures Friday, including one that raises the age requirement to purchase rifles and shotguns.

In a tightening of what many believe are the strictest gun laws in the nation, Senate Bill 1100 now requires all firearms purchasers to be at least 21, the Mercury News of San Jose reported.

California already restricts handgun sales to people 21 and older.

The Firearms Policy Coalition, a gun rights advocacy group, slammed the bill.

These two ways of understanding the death of Markeis McGlockton stand at the heart of the debate over stand-your-ground laws—self-defense laws that have been enacted in roughly half of all U.S. states—and his tragic death has reignited questions over the effectiveness of these laws and whether their enforcement is disproportionately affected by implicit biases.

A Fayetteville landlord will not face charges for shooting an intruder.

The shooting happened Thursday evening in the 5000 block of Birch Road. Darrell Ellison had just fed his dogs when his tenant knocked on the door.

"A lady and her boyfriend that rent a trailer that I own in Hope Mills, she said they had a fight and she stopped by here to talk about it," Ellison said.
 

CA: Home and Business Owners Deserve a Tax Break for Defending Themselves

Under the federal Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA), utilities must buy back any excess electricity home and business owners generate with their private solar energy systems. In similar style, business and home owners should be able to deduct from their property tax the cost of security systems, alarms and even firearms and ammunition. These owners face declining police services and slow response times, even as Propositions 47 and 57 have emboldened criminals. The last true tax break for California property owners was Proposition 13, passed forty years ago in 1978. Californians now pay the nation’s highest income and sales taxes, and relief is long overdue

For a company that offers a range of different caliber and size options that fit pretty much every conceivable niche in the firearm world, Glock went without a .380 ACP offering for quite some time. That absence was remedied in 2014 when Glock launched the G42, which is officially the smallest handgun offered in the company’s extensive lineup and is also the only .380 ACP Glock offers.
 

WA: Washington’s Anti-Gun Governor Disses Police Marksmanship Competition Over NRA Link

Anti-gun Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat recently rumored to be eyeballing a possible run for the White House in 2020, has politicized and probably alienated a large segment of Evergreen State law enforcement by deciding to end the tradition of signing certificates for the “Governor’s 20” police marksmanship competition.

In letters to a member-at-large of the Washington State Police Pistol Association this past May, and more recently to a constituent, the explanation for Inslee’s decision was crystal clear. The letters were signed by Inslee’s communications director, Jaime Smith.

Alcatraz East Crime Museum will be opening The Second Amendment on Friday. The exhibit will give visitors the opportunity to learn about laws that shaped this amendment and see rare firearms on display.

Alcatraz East Crime Museum has partnered with the National Rifle Association Museums, which includes the National Firearms Museum located in Fairfax, Virginia, which have generously loaned the special firearms in this exhibit.

“We are always interested in exhibits that provides historic context to our justice system, and featuring the Second Amendment does exactly that,” explains Janine Vaccarello, chief operating officer at Alcatraz East Crime Museum.

Ten Oregon counties, including Douglas County, will have the chance to defend the right to keep and bear arms in the general election on Nov. 6.

County voters have the opportunity to vote for a new ordinance, Measure 10-165, the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance. It will establish further protections for the rights of law-abiding citizens. The new law will authorize the county sheriff to use his discretionary powers to prioritize the use of his department’s resources in the enforcement of state and federal firearm laws that infringe on the rights enumerated in the Second Amendment.

On Thursday, the nation witnessed what happens when a man of principle, integrity, and dignity clashes with Washington, D.C.’s political hit machine. U.S. Circuit Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh presented a scorching defense of his record and his character after Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sprung last-minute accusations to try to derail what seemed like Kavanaugh’s likely confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. Now, your U.S. Senators need to hear from YOU to ensure he is seated on the nation’s highest court when it begins its next session in October.
