A man who had his laptop stolen from a Starbucks in Northern California on New Year's Eve died from injuries he sustained when he tried to chase down the suspect and was struck by an apparent getaway vehicle, according to officials.

The Oakland Police Department said the incident happened just after 11:30 a.m. at the Starbucks.

Witnesses said the man was working on his laptop when the suspect walked up and took it. When the man ran out of the Starbucks and chased after the suspect in an attempt to get the laptop back, he was struck by the suspect's vehicle as it took off.

Only a few hours into 2020 and Missouri's second largest city recorded four homicides in multiple shootings across St. Louis.

Submitter's note: Democratic enclave.

As we look into the rearview, 2019 closes out a remarkable decade in the firearm world. In the 2010s, Shooting Illustrated became an official journal of the National Rifle Association, joining American Rifleman, American Hunter and America's 1st Freedom as the magazines of choice for NRA's more than 5 million members. Over the last 10 years, a number of articles floated to the top, as we answered burning questions in your heads and found new ways to view ammo, accessories and firearms. Without further ado, here are the five most popular Shooting Illustrated articles of the decade:

Whether or not you're a gun owner, some of California's newest gun laws could impact you.

Like AB 61, which allows people in a workplace or school to file a gun violence restraining order against a coworker, employee, employer, or student who's a threat to themselves or others.
 

It’s just like the sanctuary city movement, only with live ammunition

Back to the sanctuary cities movement. Progressives weren’t the only ones who liked the concept. Second Amendment advocates saw the possibilities as well. And when states like Colorado started passing new, more restrictive gun control laws — like Colorado’s “red flag” law and ban on large magazines for semi-automatic weapons — rural counties and small towns started declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries.
 

VA: Supervisors’ letter to lawmakers: Uphold the Constitution

In response to several pieces of gun control legislation that have been filed for the upcoming 2020 General Assembly session, governing bodies in more than 100 Virginia localities have passed some type of resolution affirming the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms as enshrined in both the U.S. and state constitutions. Many went a step further, declaring their jurisdictions as “Second Amendment sanctuaries” and vowing not to recognize new gun laws.

Facing pressure from more than 1,000 gun rights supporters who rallied outside and at least 200 who packed the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors’ Public Meeting Room on Dec. 11, the county’s five-member board declined to introduce a similar resolution.

Hundreds of local counties, cities, and towns across America are declaring themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries” or “constitutional counties” as part of an ever-expanding movement over the past few years that has surprised even those who enacted the sanctuary resolutions in the first place.

Fauquier County is the latest in Virginia to declare it would defy any new gun legislation passed by the state legislature’s incoming Democratic majority. The county’s Board of Supervisors last week voted unanimously to adopt a resolution designating Fauquier as a “Constitutional County.”
 

TX: Texas Church Incident Shows How 2A Stops Mass Shooters

There is only one reason why the tragic shooting at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, wasn’t even more tragic: At least one parishioner at the service that was attacked by a gunman not only had the courage to act, the parishioner had the tools to effectively protect the congregation.

In other words, the would-be mass shooter, who had a lengthy criminal record that disqualified him from even touching a gun under the provisions of 18 USC 922(g), was not the only person in that church with a gun. The death toll of innocents was kept down to two. Contrast that to some known gun-free zones.
 

Pro-Gun Lawmakers Introduce Anti-Red Flag Laws to Defend Rights

But their majority-Republican legislatures are looking to preempt the enacting of such laws, including by cities and counties. Measures being considered by pro-gun lawmakers would even make it a felony for someone to help enforce a firearm confiscation order.

Sponsors of the bills said they were motivated by the possibility of Congress either passing red flag laws outright or offering grants enticing states to pass such laws on their own.
 

NV: New gun background check law now in effect

The new law requiring background checks for private gun sales is now in effect in Nevada.

Local gun shop owner, Ed Anderson, said he now has to put the guns being sold on his books in order to conduct a background check for the private sale, and he doesn't see any of the profit.

"It also puts the dealer in a position where they are now liable for that gun once it leaves the shop because it's effectively being sold by the dealer even though the dealer doesn't get any of the money," Anderson said.

The National Rifle Association has deflected attempts to limit the U.S. private arsenal by casting blame on a “broken mental health system.” Over time, the group has honed and driven home a message that guns don’t kill people; mentally ill people do.

But the insincerity of this diversionary tactic has been unmasked by other literal interpreters of the Second Amendment. As a detailed 2019 report from The Heritage Foundation pointed out, “because mental illness is so transient in the lives of so many individuals—and because the vast majority of mentally ill individuals are not and will never become violent,” lawmakers should be wary of restricting their gun rights.

The Supreme Court will hear a slate of highly charged disputes when the justices return to the bench in the new year and resume one of the most politically volatile terms in recent memory.

Since the term opened in October, the court has heard high-profile fights over LGBT rights in the workplace, the scope of the Second Amendment and the deportation status of nearly 700,000 young undocumented immigrants.

A standing-room-only crowd of more than 400 packed the meeting room, filled the lobby and spilled into the parking lot recently in rural Buckingham County. They had one thing on their minds: Guns.

The vast majority favored a proposal to protect their right to carry firearms, declaring the county a Second Amendment Sanctuary.

Similar scenes have played out across Virginia during recent weeks. Gun owners are descending on local offices to demand that their government leaders establish sanctuaries for gun rights.
