Does Reversal of Siwatu-Salama Brandishing Conviction Expand Self-Defense?

The court of appeals is not saying that it’s automatically OK—an “expansion of self-defense rights”—to threaten someone with a gun if another threatens you with mere non-deadly force. They said there might be circumstances in which threatening with a gun would be justified and other circumstances in which it would not be justified. It’s up to the jury at the trial to make that call. Whatever way a jury decides—and that could be for the defender or against the defender, either way—the court of appeals would be okay with that decision.

Channel Harvey had recorded Ra with her phone, showing her displaying her defensive firearm. Ra had a valid Michigan concealed carry permit. Channel was reportedly on probation for felony assault in another case.

Both parties claimed the other had threatened the other. Several organizations, including the Second Amendment Foundation and the NRA, as well as several on the Left, defended Ra's use of non-deadly force.

Despite widespread outcry about gun violence, the list of deadly U.S. mass shootings continues to grow, adding to a widespread public feeling of uncertainty and concerns about safety. After the last tragedies in El Paso, Texas, and in Dayton, Ohio, where collectively 31 people died at the hands of gunmen, businesses are trying to capitalize on the public’s anxiety, offering them a chance to feel more protected.

VA: Here’s why suggested Virginia gun control measures make no sense

The Governor uses an Orwellian name, "gun safety", to refer to his proposed gun control measures. Let me share two points the Governor doesn't was the public to know: The evidence shows the vast majority of mass shootings are carried out in so called "gun-free" zones, and Gov. Northam's gun control measures would have had no effect on these perpetrators at all, and most importantly, probably not in the future......Killers don't obey gun laws.

The right to keep and bear arms is granted under the Second Amendment of the Constitution, but over the years, it's become a hot-button issue. While some states have increased restrictions on gun owners, Oklahoma legislators loosened regulations this year.

The first bill signed into law by Gov. Kevin Stitt after taking office was H.B. 2597, better known as the constitutional carry bill. Oklahomans will be allowed to carry firearms without a permit or training starting Nov. 1. The legislation passed Senate with a 40-6 vote, and State Sen. Dewayne Pemberton, R-Muskogee, was among its supporters.

Five Senators Tell the Supreme Court to Back off Gun Rights … or Else

A “friend-of-the-court” brief from five U.S. senators, all Democrats, in a Second Amendment case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court made news for its impudence. The entire document is accusatory, especially its final paragraph, which states:

“The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.’ Particularly on the urgent issue of gun control, a nation desperately needs it to heal.”

U.S. Sen. Steve Daines states, “Many experts believe firearm restriction proposals would be ineffective in preventing violent crimes.” Indeed!

In fact, firearm restrictions will bring more violence. Why? Because criminals will ignore the firearm restrictions while citizens will be forced to surrender their deterrent to crime (an intrinsic protection).
 

Why red flag laws, background checks and an assault weapons ban won't stop mass shootings

Congress is notorious for passing legislation without reading it, but the urge to rush legislation reached a new level in Washington this month. Some members of Congress have announced support for gun control bills that haven’t even been written yet!

What’s already clear from their vague proposals, however, is that none of these measures would have stopped any recent mass public shooting. For the safety of the general public, perhaps we should have a mandatory waiting period for lawmakers who rush to pass unconstitutional and unhelpful legislation.
 

MI: For some blacks, mass shootings are a call to arms

Kenyatta believes gun control measures are often a response to black Americans' attempts to exercise their Second Amendment rights. He points to the Michigan's adoption of gun ownership restrictions after Ossian Sweet, a black physician who bought a house in a heretofore white Detroit neighborhood in 1925, used a shotgun to protect his family against an angry white mob. Sweet was eventually acquitted of murder charges, but in 1927 the state lawmakers adopted legislation giving counties control over the issuance of gun permits, a move designed to limit black gun ownership.

As you can see from the illustration, for the last 19 years, from 1999 to 2017, there were 2,467 children killed in fatal accidents involving bicycles, versus 1,994 children killed in fatal accidents involving a firearm.

A Chicago homeowner told police he discovered an intruder in his locked backyard around 5 a.m. Tuesday and told the man to leave, police told the Chicago Tribune.

But instead the man allegedly "balled up his fist" and approached the 54-year-old homeowner, the paper said.

With that, the owner of the East Garfield Park residence feared an attack and opened fire with a 9 mm handgun, striking the intruder in the upper left thigh, police told the Tribune.

Schitara Page was working the night shift at her security guard job last Dec. 18, when she caught two shoplifters in the act. One punched her in the face and threw lemons at her as she followed them into the parking lot, she would later recall.

Page, a 32-year-old sergeant in the U.S. Army and expert marksman, caught up with the suspects as they were climbing into a pickup truck with large tires. The driver allegedly gave her one final taunt before climbing in, yelling out, "I've got something for you, b—-," Page says.

A Ypsilanti non-profit chapter is buying back stolen or illegally-purchased guns this weekend — no questions asked — as part of an effort to reduce everyday gun violence.

Ypsilanti's chapter of The Cream Inc., a Michigan nonprofit focused on resources for urban communities, will host the buyback from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 24 at the Ypsilanti Community Church.

The event, in partnership with the Ypsilanti Police Department, will focus on getting illegally owned, bartered or stolen guns and rifles off the streets, according to the event's GoFundMe page.

While revolvers and hunting rifles can also be bought back, posters for the buyback note that rusty and inoperable guns will not have any buyback value.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. — James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46
