Perhaps not many Patriot Post readers are familiar with the various “Real Housewives” series that run on the cable network called Bravo. They should, however, become more familiar with one star — Kenya Moore of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” especially after a recent incident. Moore, a former Miss USA, faced three trespassers who had scaled the gate of her Atlanta-area home — a situation that could have ended very badly. She was outnumbered, and two of the three intruders were men. Fortunately, Moore had something to even the odds — a firearm.

The grandmother "was aware that both of her grandsons knew the location of the weapon and the ammunition," the Prosecutor's Office said in a charging statement.

According to the Sun Sentinel, Raburn stressed that a law-abiding citizen could have used his or her gun to stop the attacker Friday, thereby saving lives.

Civil Rights Leader Innis, Who Moved from Liberalism to Libertarianism, Dies at 82

Civil rights icon Roy Innis, who for over 50 years in public life confounded stereotypes and the conventional wisdom of politics, died Sunday morning in New York City after a long illness. He was 82. “Roy got up every day and followed his conscience on what he thought was right, and if that led him to collide with political correctness, he was willing to take the heat,” said Wayne LaPierre, a longtime Innis friend and CEO of the National Rifle Association.
A tall and muscular enigma wrapped in a conundrum, Mr. Innis was noted for being a compelling speaker at the podium but otherwise mild-mannered — except when he wasn’t.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: A great loss to us all. He will be missed.

Have Gun, Will travel: Groups Push for States to Honor Concealed-Carry Laws

Gun-rights groups have high hopes for a new bill looking to grant “national reciprocity” for Americans with concealed firearm permits, introduced just as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office. The bill, put forward in the new Congress last week by Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed-carry license to have that license recognized in any other state that allows concealed carry. This also would apply to states that recognize so-called “constitutional carry” where a license is not required for a concealed handgun.

The backers of the 2016's controversial Campus Carry bill says they’re introducing a new bill that will look very similar to the bill Gov. Nathan Deal vetoed last year. It's no surprise campus carry will return. The expectation was that backers would write a bill that would take into consideration the issues Gov. Deal raised when he vetoed last year’s bill.

State Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard (D-43) will introduce a bill next week that would require criminal background checks for firearms sellers who are not licensed to sell but are looking to sell or transfer guns to another individual. “What they’re trying to do is, if you wanted to go and buy a firearm from your next door neighbor, you would not be able to do that. They would make that illegal,” said White Rock firearms dealer Stanley Hayes. “It should be the same as you wanting to sell your car and you not having to take it to an auto dealer to sell it.”

We Americans love our guns -- and apparently, we love them twice as much as we used to. We first twigged to this trend in 2015, when an astounding story on The Washington Post's Wonkblog site revealed that the average number of firearms owned by a "typical gun-owning household" had roughly doubled between 1994 and 2013, to 8.1 guns per household. The trend has only gone up since.

A military jet taking off with its afterburner on full blast. A jackhammer. A sandblaster. A freight train. A rock concert. What do these seemingly unconnected sounds all have in common? They’re significantly quieter than the sound of a gun being fired. Even one with a “silencer” attached to it.
