When Anchorage Police got a report of an obnoxious driver with red and blue lights on his dashboard last weekend, they tried to find the car's owner from the photo of the Alaska license plate sent by a citizen.
Their search came up empty, said Jennifer Castro, the police spokeswoman. There was nothing in the usual listings provided by the Alaska Department of Motor Vehicles. ...
Police contacted the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Exposives, a U.S. Justice Department agency, which confirmed that the SUV was theirs, Castro said.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: Two people should lose their jobs over this incident: the BATF AGent involved and the head of Alaska's DMV.
 

AK: Eagle River trapshooter gets another shot at Olympic glory

Corey Cogdell-Unrein, the Eagle River trapshooter who already owns an Olympic medal, will gun for more Olympic glory this summer in Rio de Janiero.

Cogdell-Unrein, the 2008 bronze medalist, will make her third straight trip to the Summer Games after clinching Team USA's lone berth in women's trapshoot this week.

"It's pretty unreal, to be honest," Cogdell-Unrein said Thursday, the day after she won the U.S. Olympic team trials in Tillar, Arkansas. "I mean, I never imagined that I'd be able to say that I'm a three-time Olympian.

"I've been competing for a little more than 10 years now and it's been such an amazing experience. I really feel like I'm coming into the best years of my shooting career."

The NRA's unwarranted panic about Hillary Clinton

In 2008, the National Rifle Association issued dire warnings of what would happen if Barack Obama were elected president. He would be "the most anti-gun president in American history," the NRA declared. He would, it said, strip away the right to use a gun for home defense, ban the sale and ownership of handguns, and "increase federal taxes on guns and ammunition by 500 percent."

Obama didn't propose any of those measures, much less achieve them. But never mind. This year, the NRA is making even darker predictions about Hillary Clinton.

Boy, California’s Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom really stepped in it this time, and The Pink Pistols are firing back.

Last week, the Pink Pistols posted a meme attacking Newsom’s proposed anti-gun legislation in California. The graphic, featuring a quote from member Nicki Stallard reads, “If Gavin Newsom gets this passed, how will transgender women like me be able to protect ourselves?”
 

NV: Fiore, officers at odds over firearm comments

A statement that Assemblywoman and Congressional candidate Michele Fiore made in an interview with Politics NOW’s Steve Sebelius is at the center of a growing controversy.

"I would never, ever point my firearm at anyone, including an officer of the law, unless they pointed their firearm at me. Now, once you point your firearm at me, I'm sorry, then it becomes self-defense,” she said on Politics NOW last month. “Whether you're a stranger, a bad guy, or an officer, and you point your gun at me, and you're going to shoot me, and I have to decide whether it's my life or your life, well, I choose my life."

A group called The Pink Pistols are celebrating a major victory in both the gun control as well as the gay rights arena, following a finding that portions of D.C.’s concealed carry requirements are “likely unconstitutional.”

Last week District Judge Richard J. Leon granted the preliminary injunction sought by the Pink Pistols and their co-plaintiff, D.C. resident Matthew Grace, effectively halting enforcement of the District’s “good cause” requirement to obtain a concealed carry permit.

One of those employees retrieved a handgun from behind the counter and fired one shot, which hit the intruder.
 

NJ: Trump adds more guns to a dangerous arsenal

About the same time Donald Trump was brandishing his newly found credentials as a key defender of the right to bear arms by aiming a barrage of verbal bullets at Hillary Clinton at the National Rifle Association's annual celebration, a man was waving the real thing at a security point near the White House.

For his trouble, Trump hopes to win millions of votes.

For his trouble, the man who refused to drop his weapon won a bullet in the chest from the Secret Service and perhaps a chance to survive. Somehow, the two separate events seem connected, or at least intertwined in the irresponsibility that rages in this country's love affair with deadly weapons.
 

Couric's Director: We Made Gun Owners Look Like Idiots So Viewers Could Consider Background Checks...Or Something

Yesterday, Pavlich wrote about Katie Couric being busted for deceptively editing her group interview with members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League. Couric has a new anti-gun documentary, Under the Gun, and it seems the folks behind this piece of propaganda were doing everything they can to make pro-gun activists look like idiots. In the clip, Couric asking “if there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons, or terrorists, from walking into a licensed gun dealer and purchasing a gun?” The feature shows seconds of silence as to insinuate that Couric has stumped them. It’s pure unadulterated crap, as Stephen Gutowski of the Free Beacon pointed out with the unexpurgated audio clip that took place.

Should I buy a gun? I live in Arizona where guns are easy to come by; no background checks, no waiting periods, no carry restrictions.

It’s a Second Amendment paradise. Arizona is the Wild West, and the threats are everywhere. Just yesterday, someone cut me off on the freeway, a lady took the parking space I wanted, and a guy jumped the line at the Wal-Mart checkout.
 

FL: Carlos Lopez-Cantera says he is only Florida lieutenant governor to forgo security detail

"I've actually cut the budget of the office by more than half, reduced the staff," he said in an interview with Fox 13’s Money, Power, Politics show in Tampa which ran on air April 30. "I'm also the only lieutenant governor to not ever take a security detail."

Lopez-Cantera had dropped this tidbit at a speech earlier that month with the Hillsborough County GOP, explaining, "It’s a waste of your money, and I’m protected by the Second Amendment."

Trump, making a campaign stop in front of 7,500 people at the Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark in Billings after an earlier appearance at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference and Expo in Bismarck, N.D., said a White House headed by Hillary Clinton would weaken the Second Amendment, which guarantees the right to bear arms.

“We have to win,” he said. “If not, you won’t have the Second Amendment anymore, it will be watered down,” he said.
 

MO: Constitutional carry: what you need to know

Constitutional carry is a law that will allow Missourians legally able to own a firearm to conceal and carry that firearm, without the benefit of a conceal and carry weapons (CCW) permit, anywhere carrying isn't prohibited by law in Missouri.

Constitutional carry may soon become the law in Missouri, if Gov. Jay Nixon signs it into law. The bill (SB 656) was passed on the final day of the recent legislative session and it greatly expands Missourians' rights to carry concealed weapons, as well as their right to stand against other threats.

Johnson, one of 17 candidates up for nomination but the overwhelming favorite, credited the party's growing popularity in part to its political philosophy. Libertarians support marijuana legalization, are skeptical of military intervention, oppose government surveillance and want less government involvement in the economy, he said.

Howell also cited the party's "staunch defense of the Second Amendment," as well as support for civil liberties and opposition to police forfeiture.
 

TX: I’m A Black Female College Professor in Texas. Should I Get a Gun?

When I return to the University of North Texas for the fall semester, I’ll have no way of knowing who is carrying a firearm. As of August 1, students, faculty, and staff with concealed weapon permits may carry guns on public university campuses, under a law approved last year.

I’m a black female professor working in a Texas town with a prominent Confederate memorial. I teach journalism courses that spark debate about race, gender, and nationality. I have serious reservations about campus carry.

We’re now getting word of a similar shooting in Tulsa, Oklahoma. An elderly man was doing yard work when was attacked by a drunken stranger. The attacked citizen was a law-abiding concealed carrier. He was sucker punched, knocked down, and was mounted by allegedly drunken stranger Lance Claunch, and eventually had to shoot Claunch to stop the attack.

The law office of Kimerer and Derrick announced that a Yuma County Superior Court judge has dropped all the charges against their client, who had been accused of shooting a man following an incident that happened at the LZ Bar and Grill more than two years ago.

According to a news release issued by the Phoenix-based law firm, on May 17 Superior Court Judge David Haws ruled that the prosecution had failed to make a showing of probable cause that Barry Douglas Todd had violated any law and dismissed the case in its entirety.
 

Murphy presses for action on mental health bill despite obstacles

Cornyn’s bill aims to avert gun violence by ensuring would-be offenders receive treatment and by enforcing existing criminal laws, rather than creating new restrictions on the sale of firearms.

The bill would also clarify which mental health records states must send to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, a system run by the FBI that screens prospective gun purchasers. It would also encourage state and local governments to provide more records to the NICS system. Under current law, those involuntarily committed to a mental health facility are blocked by the NICS system from purchasing guns.
 

The Trail Less Traveled: Lots of great things at NRA Convention

I tell you all this to say I recently made a mistake in math and in a public forum. I posted on my Facebook page from the National Rifle Association Convention in Louisville, Ky., that the convention featured “10 acres of guns and freedom.” I was wrong. The Kentucky Exposition Center has 500,000 square feet under roof and I am told this converts to almost 11 and one-half acres of space (11.478449 to be exact). Believe me when I tell you that I did not do this math.
 

Why You Don’t Want To Put A Pro 2A Bumper Sticker On Your Car

I’m an advocate of the Second Amendment (2A), but you’d never know it if you look at my car.

My sister told me that a local firearms trainer in her city recently recommended that women should put bumper stickers on their vehicles that read, “I’m protected by the Second Amendment,” or, “I’m protected by Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson” – you get the idea. The trainer even told her to put that bumper sticker right on the driver’s door.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. — Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
