It is accepted as fact by most gun control advocates that simply having a gun in your home nearly triples your chances of being murdered. It even shows up on TV Shows, such as “The Good Doctor”. Where did this idea come from? What is the evidence?
 

First Look: Federal Premium 30 Super Carry Ammunition

The company created an entirely new cartridge that, while smaller than the 9 mm, skews heavily towards it in terms of power. Dubbed the 30 Super Carry, the new cartridge has a .312-inch bullet diameter, although it’s the same length as a 9 mm. The narrower circumference, though, means more rounds will fit inside a given frame, all else being equal. It also means that, in short order, we’ll be seeing guns specifically designed for the Super Carry that are smaller and lighter than current 9 mm pistols. In other words, we’ll have new guns of .380 ACP size, but with 9 mm muzzle energy.

While Albany lawmakers were looking for new ways to loosen laws on crime, law-abiding New York residents were making the case for the Supreme Court to restore their Second Amendment rights in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, challenging the constitutionality of New York’s restrictive pistol permit requirements. In November 2021, Remington Arms announced that it will be moving its headquarters to Georgia, citing New York’s unfriendly atmosphere to firearm ownership as a factor in the decision.

Walensky told CNN that, after supposedly more than two decades on the sidelines because of an NRA-backed measure to limit the use of CDC funding, the agency was getting back into the gun-violence-research business. Despite waning support for the public health agency in the wake of its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, Walensky said it was time for the CDC to put the “pedal to the metal” on this political controversy. The CDC director said of firearms, “I swore to the president and to this country that I would protect your health. This is clearly one of those moments, one of those issues that is harming America’s health.”

Yakima police declined to arrest a 37-year-old man accused of shooting another man in a Walmart parking lot Thursday after he told investigators he was defending himself and his family during an attempted robbery.

“At this point, we’re leaning towards this being a self-defense type of incident,” Sgt. Jake Lancaster said.

A bill pending in the Ohio legislature will, according to its backers, further the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. But to its opponents, Senate Bill 215 is a threat to public safety.

The bill passed in the Senate last month and was introduced in the House of Representatives where it awaits a committee assignment.

The bill will allow law-abiding adults to carry a concealed handgun without obtaining a permit in areas where concealed carry is permitted.

He opens the article by saying that a weapons charge conviction can lead to inceration, fines, probation, and other penalties that have a huge impact on a person’s future. He goes on to say that having a trustworthy Michigan firearms lawyer is very important to at least minimize the effects of such a charge on the client’s life.

After entering the locked bedroom, residents say Tolley advanced towards them and a resident subsequently fired a shot at Tolley.

Even as crime is surging in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom and his allies in the legislature are seeking to make it more difficult for citizens to defend themselves.

This week, Assemblyman Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) introduced Assembly Bill 1594, which reads, “This bill would specify that a gun industry member has created or maintained a public nuisance, as defined, if their failure to follow federal, state, or local law caused injury or death or if the gun industry member engaged in unfair business practices.”

A group of local citizens called the Vermilion County Constitutionalists have been trying since last year to have Vermilion County become Illinois’ 68th Second Amendment Sanctuary County to protect their gun rights.

An ordinance will be before the Vermilion County Board at its Jan. 11 meeting. A full agenda and information about the meeting can be found at www.vercounty.org.

In a Second Amendment Sanctuary County, gun laws deemed unconstitutional by the group would not be enforced, according to Vermilion County Constitutionalists’ Phil Jackson. Jackson is pastor at OSF Sacred Heart Medical Center in Danville.

Missouri Republican legislative leaders appear uninterested in revising a new Second Amendment law at the request of a police group that says the measure makes it harder for local law enforcement to apprehend suspects in gun-related crimes.

The Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA) was a victory for GOP politicians and gun rights activists when it passed last year. It was buoyed by lawmakers' desire to push back on gun control measures promised by President Joe Biden's administration.

Senior Republicans said Thursday, in essence, that they like the law the way it is.

The city of Arnold this week asked a judge to overturn Missouri's controversial new gun law, saying it is vague and confusing, hampers criminal investigations and is contrary to state and federal law.

In a lawsuit filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court on Wednesday, the city says the "Second Amendment Preservation Act" contains a series of provisions that put city officials at risk, including an apparent prohibition against seizing guns during investigations.

The city also said the law hampers the "recruitment, hiring and retention of law enforcement officers who are currently or formerly employed by or affiliated with" any federal agency.

Republicans are making a new push to loosen Indiana’s requirements for carrying a handgun in public despite the opposition of several major law enforcement organizations.

The proposal endorsed by an Indiana House committee would repeal the state’s handgun permit requirement, allowing anyone age 18 or older to carry a handgun except for reasons such as having a felony conviction, facing a restraining order from a court or having a dangerous mental illness.
 

AL: ‘It’s a political thing’: Wiregrass sheriffs against ending pistol permit requirement

Wiregrass sheriffs, backed by a state association, are worried that a Republican push to abolish the permit requirement to carry a concealed handgun is motivated by partisan politics over public safety.

Members of the GOP in the Alabama House of Representatives said Wednesday that ending the permit requirement would be among their top priorities in the upcoming legislative session.

The Alabama House Republican Caucus announced a legislative agenda that includes the so-called “constitutional carry” legislation that does away with the requirement to get a permit to carry a concealed handgun in public.

One Tuscaloosa-area lawmaker is renewing his push to repeal permit requirements for concealed carry handgun owners in Alabama.

More specifically, Senate Bill 1 — authored by Sen. Gerald Allen, a Tuscaloosa Republican — would "repeal certain restrictions on the carrying or possession of a firearm on certain property or in a motor vehicle by persons with or without a concealed pistol permit."

House Bill 307: Over recent years, numerous local governments have attempted to enact gun control ordinances in violation of the current state firearms preemption law, putting law-abiding gun owners at risk. HB 307 allows anyone adversely impacted by an ordinance or regulation to file suit against the county, city, town or government entity that enacted the violation (after notice is given). This important piece of legislation strengthens New Hampshire’s preemption law to protect New Hampshire gun owners, ensuring law-abiding citizens do not face a confusing patchwork of firearm laws across the state.

In November, the KSL investigators revealed unintended consequences of the new law that was originally pitched as a way to save people who act in self-defense from the financial expense of defending themselves in a trial.

Exceptions to H.B. 227 include cases in which an individual is accused of an unlawful use of force against a law enforcement officer and cases involving domestic violence – an exemption prosecutors hope to take advantage of in Bruce’s case.

.22 LR For Self Defense: Ammunition Test & Comparison

It’s a question those of us in the gun writing business often get asked. “What’s the best caliber for a self-defense handgun?” Those expecting a one-to-three digit answer from me will be disappointed. I respond to their simple question with a complex one. “What is the most powerful cartridge that you can shoot accurately and proficiently that comes in a handgun which is comfortable enough to carry that you’ll carry it all the time?” Depending on the person asking, the answer will vary. For some, it’s a full-sized .357 Mag. or 10 mm Auto. For others, it’s one of the current .380 ACPs offered in a 9 mm-sized handgun. And in certain cases, it’s the .22 LR.
 

 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)]
