IL: Attorneys General Don’t Just Enforce the Law. They Shape It

It depends on what they are. Even in [the Supreme Court’s] decision on the McDonald case [invalidating Chicago’s handgun ban], there’s room for regulation.

I think the notion that you need an AR-15 for self-defense is extreme. That said, I don’t think there’s anything from the opinions of the Supreme Court that says you can’t license a retail gun dealer. There are things we can do that are consistent with how even a conservative Supreme Court interprets the Second Amendment.
 

WV: Pennsylvania, Florida added to list of states recognizing WV concealed carry

Firearm permits in West Virginia for residents over the age of 21 will be recognized in Pennsylvania and Florida, the West Virginia Attorney General’s Office announced Wednesday.

The two states will not recognize provisional licenses issued to residents between the ages of 18 and 20.

28 states have continued recognition with the state, allowing West Virginians to carry concealed within their borders.

“This ensures convenience in travel and peace of mind for West Virginia license holders choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” Patrick Morrisey said in a release to the media. “Preserving this recognition is a victory for gun owners. We hope it remains intact for many years to come.”
 

MO: Undercover Video: Sen. McCaskill Would Ban Most Modern Rifles, Has Same Views as Obama

Locked in a tight re-election battle with Republican Josh Hawley, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.; shown) has cleverly packaged herself as a moderate. But an undercover video has revealed that while she sings a red-state tune, she’s a proud member of her blue-state band. In fact, she apparently believes in banning all semi-automatic rifles and has basically the same views as Barack Obama — though, as a campaign worker put it, “People just can’t know that.”

Police in California has confirmed that they will not charge a 16-year-old in the fatal shooting of his father after they concluded that he acted in self-defense. It was determined that the boy, whose name has been withheld because of his juvenile status, had shot and killed his 54-year-old father, Javier Vera, to protect his mother from physical abuse.

Looking for a very different and unique pocket derringer? Missouri-based Heizer Defense makes a selection of unusual space age derringers that can fit the bill for a range of specialized needs, while having space age appeal and serious power.

This company is family owned and operated, and grew from humble beginnings. The family of Charlie Heizer, now in his mid-eighties, escaped Hungary during WWII and relocated to the Midwestern US. An engineer and inventor at heart, Heizer became educated as an aerospace engineer. Among his many inventions are a series of derringers, with looks and features entirely unlike others on the market.

Investigators believe he and the Chicago man, identified by the Lake County Coroner's Office as 34-year-old Joseph McHaney, traveled to a home in the 300 block of Teal Road purporting to be interested in purchasing a firearm from a homeowner. Instead, Covelli said, they tried to rob the gun-owning resident with a knife and a hammer.

Zachery was armed with a knife as McHaney struck the homeowner multiple times with a hammer, according to the task force investigation. The resident responded by shooting in self-defense. McHaney was fatally shot by the homeowner and pronounced dead at the scene, Covelli said.

Patriot Prayer and its founder Joey Gibson are planning to visit two southwest Washington college campuses next week to raise awareness about ballot measure I-1639, which would implement stricter gun laws.

Following several protests in downtown Portland this summer that resulted in violence, however, many students are saying Gibson and his group are not welcome. Many times, Antifa and Patriot Prayer came to blows during those protests.

So you really think you could be proud to have Kathleen Williams representing you and your state in the U.S. Congress; but one of your biggest issues is the Second Amendment, and Williams has poor grades with the gun lobby. Kathleen is an avid hunter, as well as an avid fisher, hiker and skier. The reason she will never get a high grade from gun manufacturers and lobbyists is her refusal to back down on her resistance to military style assault weapons, like the AR-15, used in many school massacres.

Gun Owners of America (GOA) today released the Congressional Scorecard for the 2018 midterm elections.

“GOA’s Congressional Scorecard is a comprehensive guide on every congressman and senator who is up for reelection, along with their challengers,” Erich Pratt, executive director of GOA said.

The scorecard holds candidates for office to the Second Amendment’s high standard of “shall not be infringed” when distributing ratings.

South Africa: Want A Gun For ‘Self-Defense’? That Will Soon Be Illegal In South Africa

There are 5.3 million firearm possessors in South Africa, of which about three million are legally licensed owners. If this bill is passed into law in its current form, it will likely make it impossible for those who acquired their licences for the purpose of self-defense unable to renew those licences, which is required on a periodic basis. Aspirant firearm owners would be barred completely from using guns as a tool to defend themselves going forward.
 

WA: I-1639 takes away our gun rights

Please vote no on Initiative 1639. If you are a law-abiding gun owner, collector, sportsman, hunter or in need of self-defense, I-1639 will make it nearly impossible to own a firearm. The initiative is 30 pages of massive restrictions, vague phrases that are open to broad interpretation, and higher and higher fees with no oversight.
 

WA: Protect your rights from I-1639

A requirement that gun owners lock up their guns to newly imposed standards or face criminal charges.

A requirement that individuals applying to acquire a semi-automatic rifle waive the confidentiality of their medical records. The act of applying to purchase “shall constitute a waiver of confidentiality.”

Required statewide registration for every law-abiding citizen owning a handgun or semi-automatic rifle, necessitating a massive state-level bureaucracy.

I-1639 would turn you into a felon if a criminal steals your gun and uses it to commit a crime.

It robs adults ages 18 to 20 of their constitutional right to self-defense. It forbids law-abiding young adults to purchase or receive semi-auto rifles.
 

MT: NRA Downgrades Montana Sen. Jon Tester’s Rating to a D

The National Rifle Association today downgraded Sen. Jon Tester’s rating to “D” after he voted against confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Kavanaugh’s confirmation restores a 5-4 majority on the Court in favor of our right to self-defense.

“D.C. Jon Tester once again joined forces with Chuck Schumer and anti-gun liberals to vote against our fundamental right to self-defense,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF. “Actions speak louder than words. Downgrading Jon Tester to a ‘D' sends a clear message to Montanans that Jon Tester can’t be trusted to protect our constitutional rights.”
 

OH: Ohio Gun Owners Should Vote Out Bad, Bad, Sherrod Brown

The list of his anti-Second Amendment actions goes on and on. But Brown has managed to stay in office for a while in Ohio, a state where voter support for the Second Amendment has been solid.

One of the big reasons for this is that he, unlike Schumer, has generally kept his anti-Second Amendment actions under the radar of many people.
How has he done that? Simple: While his vote is reliably with Schumer and Feinstein, he has rarely been public with his comments or beliefs on the issue. He just casts votes. The other action he has often taken has been to sign on to various letters. Well, that was the case until after the Pulse nightclub shooting (really a terrorist attack, as the shooter pledged allegiance to ISIS).

My fellow NRA members, we stand at the edge of the precipice of one of the most important elections of our lives. That is the reality we face, and we face it just days from now.

All the freedoms we hold dear are at stake in this election. The enemies of our freedom are highly organized and abundantly funded, thanks to a group of super-rich political elites hell-bent on “buying” this election to serve their own agenda.

This self-serving cabal of billionaires and their pet politicians have conspired to permanently transform America into a socialist state.They tried their best to win the White House in 2016, and they’ve done everything possible to undo that election ever since.
 

CA: Democratic Congressional Candidate Katie Hall Wants Nationwide Gun Control Similar to California's

Democrats have targeted select districts throughout the country. Their goal is to flip both the House and the Senate come November. One of the districts they're heavily invested in is California's 25th Congressional District, which is currently represented by Republican Steve Knight.

Knight's Democratic challenger, Katie Hill, is touting her "distinction" as a Gun Sense Candidate, a so-called honor given by gun control group Moms Demand Action.

What's disturbing is her stance on the Second Amendment. Although she says she's a "lifelong gun owners," she wants "sensible" gun laws. And you know what that means: banning particular accessories and types of guns.

Illinois has background checks for all gun sales and we can see how well that has worked out for Chicago. Background checks are a placebo, with the vast majority of denials being false hits (In 2010, around 72,000 people were stopped from buying a gun in the U.S. because of background checks, but only 44 were prosecuted and 13 found guilty! The rest were mostly false hits that were later corrected).

If you walked down the firing line and asked most of us, we’d say we are practicing for self-defense. I don’t believe it. I think we stand in a line and shoot at paper precisely so we won’t feel embarrassed by our performance. Our self-image is so sensitive that we can’t suffer disappointment. In addition, we don’t know what we don’t know, so we tend to overestimate our skills and underestimate what we could learn.

Children fail all the time, but it seems we’ve lost that skill as adults. I went shooting with a friend, and the experience drove home that particular lesson.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right. [Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846)]
