MI: Rep. Haley Stevens' town hall on curbing gun violence turns contentious

A large crowd turned out for a contentious town hall on curbing gun violence Tuesday led by Democratic U.S. Rep. Haley Stevens of Rochester Hills and two Michigan lawmakers.

The hour-long, Q&A-style event at the Multi-Lakes Conservation Association was hosted with Fems for Dems, a grassroots group, and aimed to cover topics such as safe firearm storage, protecting victims of domestic violence and preventing attacks, organizers said.

But Stevens, Michigan House Democratic Leader Christine Greig of Farmington Hills and Democratic State Rep. Robert Wittenberg of Huntington Woods were often drowned out and interrupted by protesters at the gun club, some of whom repeatedly shouted "NRA" in reference to the National Rifle Association.

Joe Biden’s Gun-Control Plan Is a Constitutional Disaster

This morning, Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden unveiled his “Plan to End Our Gun Violence Epidemic,” and it’s a mess. It contains provisions that would bankrupt gun manufacturers for the crime of selling fully functional, legal firearms. It would ban the sale of the most popular rifles in America and the standard-capacity magazines made for America’s most commonly used handguns. Oh, and to incentivize a voluntary buyback of existing “assault weapons,” it would grant the owners of such weapons a choice: sell your rifle to the government or join a firearms registry.
 

FL: Floridians could carry guns in public without license under new bill

A Florida lawmaker is pushing to loosen the state’s gun laws.

Republican State Rep. Anthony Sabatini filed the bill, HB 273, that would allow lawful gun owners to carry without a license in areas where concealed carry is typically allowed.

It would keep in place prohibitions on carrying firearms in places like courtrooms and college campuses, but the penalty for bringing a gun there would be reduced from a third-degree felony to a second-degree misdemeanor.

Once outside, the business owner was confronted by a man with a crowbar and the business owner fired a handgun several times striking the man at least twice. Berkey said the man ran about 150 feet before collapsing.

The business owner called 911 and the responding deputy found the man, who was in his 30s, deceased along Texas 105.

Berkey said no charges had been filed in the case but added the case would be presented to a Montgomery County Grand Jury.

I, for one, am thankful to the prosecution and jurors for making a clear statement in this case – that the property owner or resident is unequivocally the king of their castle and the only ones for whom castle doctrine stands in defense.

Clark County commissioners passed an ordinance today extending no-gunfire zones around Lovell Canyon and the southwest northeast part of the Las Vegas Valley. The ordinance prohibits any discharge of a firearm except for self-defense.

Municipalities in the county already prohibit target shooting outside designated ranges.

NV: Nevada Court Awards Jury Trial Rights To Accused Domestic Batterers Who Could Lose 2A

A new Nevada Domestic Violence law 2019. The Nevada Supreme Court has ruled that people accused of misdemeanor domestic violence have the right to a jury trial based on the fact that a 2017 law cancels the defendant’s right to keep and bear arms.

In trying to make victims safer, our legislature added a law that anyone convicted of a misdemeanor domestic battery loses their right to possess firearms. That right, however, is enshrined the Nevada Constitution as well as the United States Constitution.

The unanimous ruling came on an appeal by a defendant who was denied a jury trial in Las Vegas Municipal Court and subsequently convicted by the trial judge.

The Crossroads of the West Gun Show returned to Del Mar last weekend with a rally, emboldened by a recent victory in court.

The state-appointed board that oversees the fairgrounds suspended Crossroads last year after receiving political pressure from residents and officials. The organizers sued, and a federal judge ruled in June that the gun show could continue to operate while the lawsuit proceeded — because Crossroads was likely to win its constitutional case.

Vivian Brown was charged with possession of a firearm without requisite Firearm Owner’s ID card following an incident in the spring of 2017. During that incident, it was discovered that Brown was in possession of a single shot, bolt action .22 caliber Remington rifle within her home without a FOID card.

Now Brown is contesting that requiring a FOID card to own a firearm within her own home is a violation of her Second Amendment right to bare arms for the purpose of protection, having already had the White County Second Circuit Court rule in her favor.

A correspondent I have known since his childhood spends a large part of his time overseas as a missionary.

Coming back to Wisconsin, he was surprised to find a “No Firearms Allowed” sign at a Denny's. I believe this is a local policy, decided by each local manager of the franchise. My correspondent gave me permission to edit the account of his reaction. His overseas experience has made him appreciate the freedoms Americans take for granted.

Poll: Most Americans Support Safe Gun Storage Laws

Harry Wilson is the Director of the Institute of Policy and Opinion Research at Roanoke College. He doesn’t believe safe storage laws are effective.

“The guns I have in my house, I can store them any way I want, for as long as I live here,” Wilson said. “No one is going to come and check to see if I’m in compliance with any law or not in compliance with any law.”

To his point, in states with safe storage laws or child access prevention laws, police officers don’t knock on gun owners’ doors to see if their guns are locked up.

In one sense, the fight for our Second Amendment rights comes down to numbers. To wit – sufficient votes in a given legislative chamber to pass good legislation that moves us closer to restoring our rights or to defeat the bad legislation. In terms of the federal government there are five numbers to keep in mind: 218, 290, 51, 60, and 67.

Move over Shotgun Joe. That was so 2013. Welcome 2019’s Bazooka Joe, who said instead of buying an AR-15, you’re better off buying actual weapons of war.

The former vice president made the comments at a town hall in Las Vegas, just days before the anniversary of the tragic murders there. Biden used the event to call for universal background checks and promote his justifications to ban lawfully owned firearms.

“If you need weapons to protect yourself from the government, you’d better go get an F-15. You’d better buy yourself a fighter jet or a bazooka rocket launcher,” Biden said, according to the Associated Press.
