The son of an 80-year-old Sultan woman who fatally shot the intruder who stabbed her husband on Thursday evening said he’s proud of his mom and doubts there will be any more intruders. “They’ll come in, look at her and run the other way,” said the 45-year-old, who asked not to be named out of concern for his family’s privacy after they were victims of the home intrusion.
 

OH: In rural Ohio, a call to 'arm yourself'

"If you are fearful, arm yourself. If you feel you need to protect yourself or your family, do so."

Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader's Sunday comments to his county's residents may have caused a collective raising of an eyebrow from the audience following last Friday's mass killing from afar. Locally, however, it wasn't considered a gaffe or even the first time a high-ranking Pike County official said or did something curious regarding firearms.

The Appalachian hills of Pike County and neighboring Adams, Scioto and Ross counties are home to many hunters and gun enthusiasts. The rural surroundings and dense forests make for a suitable, and arguably safer, setting for firearm buffs.

When and where can gun owners use their weapon if they feel threatened? That's what many viewers were asking after Eyewitness News aired a story Thursday night about being prepared to protect your family in the event of a home invasion.

Firearms expert and instructor for Thunderbird Firearms Academy, Andy Padilla, said if you plan to use a firearm for protection there are some things you should know first.

"There's a lot that goes into it," Padilla said. "It's more than just carrying something on your hip or keeping it in your home somewhere."

A poll shows University of Tennessee faculty members strongly oppose allowing guns on campus, but champions of the idea say they're confident the governor will sign their measure into law.

Gov. Bill Haslam has until Tuesday to act on a bill that would allow full-time employees of Tennessee public universities to carry handguns on campus. The bill states full-time employees not enrolled as students can carry handguns concealed on campus, provided they have Tennessee carry permits.
 

HuffPo Blogger Argues For Revision Of Second Amendment, Says Self-Defense Is Unjust

Seriously, I’m not sure if this is serious or just troll bait. Justin Curmi wrote in the Huffington Post that not only should the Second Amendment of our Bill Of Rights be revised, but also that self-defense is somehow unjust. He concedes that there is a right for people to “carry and have a stockpile of guns,” but the issue for him is defending oneself with a firearm.
 

WV: WV-made long rifles on display at Prickett’s Fort

During the late 1700s and early 1800s, settlers carving out farms in the hills and hollows of what is now West Virginia relied on the long rifle to feed and defend their families. The long rifle, also known as the Kentucky Rifle, was considered such an important survival tool that settlers were willing to pay regional gunsmiths top dollar to provide them with sturdy, reliable weapons that often doubled as works of art. Gunsmiths decorated the maple or fruit-wood stocks of their rifles with ornate carvings and decorative metal insets sometimes fashioned from silver coins. The brass covers for the patch boxes built into the rifle butts often featured intricate, imaginative engravings.

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) issued the following statements on President Obama’s latest gun control push.

In response to the President’s call for “smart gun” technology:

“President Obama’s obsession with gun control knows no boundaries,” said Jennifer Baker, director of NRA-ILA Public Affairs. “At a time when we are actively fighting terrorists at home and abroad, this administration would rather focus the military’s efforts on the president’s gun control agenda.”

Leaders like Weinberg and Greenwald were condemned last month by Marc Cooper, a contributing editor to The Nation magazine and recently retired journalism professor at USC’s Annenberg School:

In an emergency, is ‘smart gun’ better than reliable one?

Just hours after news reports surfaced yesterday that the Obama administration would have an announcement about “smart guns,” an 80-year-old Sultan-area woman used a plain old firearm with the “smarts” behind the trigger to fatally shoot a home invader last night who stabbed her husband.

Published reports say the unidentified 25-year-old attacker may have been trying to burglarize the home. He evidently made what some self-defense experts call “a fatal error in the victim selection process.”
 

HI: Second Amendment written for our times

The Second Amendment was not written for their weapons, their time. It was written for all weapons, all times; our weapons, our times. If you do not like the Second Amendment's explicit prohibition against infringement of this unalienable right and wish to alter it, Article V of our Constitution delineates how to do so. Nothing in Article V allows cities, counties, states nor their courts; the U.S. Supreme Court, the president, nor the U.S. Congress to do so by fiat. It only allows for repeal of the Second Amendment, then ratification of a new amendment. Both actions require an affirmative vote of 75 percent of state legislatures.

As some Illinois lawmakers advocate for tighter gun laws when it comes to mental health, another state representative says his goal is to protect the second amendment.

Representative Jerry Costello, Jr. is sponsoring the two related bills.

The first would prevent local governments from charging additional fees on firearms and ammunition other than sales tax.

The second would allow for conceal-carry on public transportation.

Both bills are still in a House Committee.

Athens, GA, rocker Micheal Stipe and his band R.E.M. helped fulfill that role for those who came of age in the 1980s and ‘90s with a string of memorable hits. On Monday, however, Stipe said too much, and not enough, with a preachy, barely coherent editorial railing against the Second Amendment rights of today’s college students.

The occasion of Stipe’s lecture was Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal’s ongoing consideration of H.B. 859, a bill the legislature passed last month that would partially lift Georgia’s ban on the concealed carrying of handguns on college campuses for those with a concealed carry license.

WI: Poll: Ron Johnson at Odds with Wisconsin Voters on Supreme Court

A majority of likely Wisconsin voters want President Barack Obama and the Senate to fill the late Justice Antonin Scalia's Supreme Court seat, according to a poll released exclusively to Roll Call on Friday, and opponents of Republican Sen. Ron Johnson hope that sentiment will hurt his re-election bid this fall.

The poll, conducted for End Citizens United PAC by Anzalone Liszt Grove Research, shows 60 percent of likely Wisconsin voters want to see the president and Senate take action to fill the vacancy now. Only 35 percent think it's too late in the president's term for him to nominate a replacement justice.

Well right or wrong, his thinking has taken a detour to the left. The far left.

The Brady Campaign announced Brad Pitt as the co-chair to The Brady Center 2016 Bear Awards Gala at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on May 4, 2016. Pitt seems out of place in their line up of host committee members, which includes Jane Fonda, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston.

Consent.

A battle over what that essential word in Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution means has begun when it comes to President Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Whether the president’s definition — that “consent” really means “capitulation,” a voluntary sit down and roll over by the members of the Senate — wins out or not, could determine the fate of the highest court in the land for more than a generation.

But now the Democrat calculation seems to be that the party might as well embrace gun control since no one believes its pro-gun rights claims anyway. This is especially popular among its core urban liberal and minority base. Clinton seems to be playing this card to distinguish herself from the slightly less confiscatory Bernie Sanders. And she plays it differently depending on where she is campaigning.

Daughter Chelsea is helping in the fight to regain the family crown with her call for “forcible gun control.” As a mother now, she “can’t even imagine that living horror and tragedy” of Sandy Hook parents, though invites us to try.

But groups such as the National Rifle Association and advocates for the mentally ill say the Social Security proposal infringes upon the rights of people who will lose access to guns even though no evidence shows them to be dangerous.

At President Barack Obama’s direction, the Social Security Administration on Friday announced a proposal to expand the database of people prohibited from buying guns with the names of beneficiaries whom it has found incompetent to handle their own financial affairs.

It has said 75,000 recipients of Social Security benefits are in that situation. Veterans Affairs already reports people with financial representatives to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
 

KS: Reciprocity: Kansas Concealed Carry Permits Now Recognized In New Hampshire

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a news release New Hampshire has notified the Kansas Attorney General’s office that Kansas-issued licenses are now recognized in that state. This brings to 37 the number of states other than Kansas that recognize Kansas licenses.

Since 2013, Kansas has recognized all valid out-of-state permits when the non-resident license holder is traveling temporarily in Kansas. As a result of this, many states that require their licenses to be recognized in Kansas before reciprocally recognizing Kansas licenses have now done so, Schmidt said.

April 27, House Bill 5054 passed the House of Representatives with a 104-42 vote. HB 5054 is a large omnibus bill which threatens your Right to Keep and Bear Arms as well as your Fifth Amendment right to due process.

HB 5054 would require the recipient of an ex parte temporary restraining order to surrender their firearms to the police or a licensed dealer within 24 hours of being served with an order.

This ex parte order strips the accused of their Second Amendment rights and would be issued by a judge based solely on a brief statement of an accuser before the accused can appear in court to defend themselves against the allegations.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. — John F. Kennedy
