Meet Rick Ector of ‘Ricks Firearm Academy of Detroit’ where the mission is; “To empower citizens with the education, training, and mindset to defend themselves in an increasingly violent time”. Not only is Rick a National Rifle Association (NRA) credentialed Firearms instructor but, he is also an author, public speaker, and Guns Rights Advocate.

I recently had the opportunity to train in Rick’s State of Michigan CCW/CPL training class. This experience was well worth it for anyone wanting to learn about the rights and Responsibilities of Gun ownership. Not only did I get to learn key information for firearms handling and safety, but I was also able to hear firsthand why Rick Ector dove into this line of work.

The Douglas County Attorney’s Office made the preliminary decision Tuesday not to press charges against an Omaha man who fatally shot another man early Sunday, saying the killing was in self-defense.

Deputy County Attorney Brenda Beadle said the office made a preliminary finding Tuesday that the fatal shooting of Kaliph O’Neal, 24, by Antonio D. Evans, 26, was justified. Beadle said the initial investigation indicates O’Neal pointed a gun at Evans prior to the two exchanging gunfire. Evans was not injured.

CCW Safe, a popular self-defense legal coverage provider, has updated its membership agreement.

The marketplace for what is often referred to by the concealed carry community as “self-defense insurance” is competitive with several companies offering compelling plans including CCW Safe which to be transparent is my favorite and the company of which I am personally a member.

I'm very excited about these changes.
 

California-Style Gun Control: Does Not Work as Advertised

California has a well-earned reputation as one of the most anti-gun jurisdictions in the United States, with its state and local codes crammed with virtually every cockamamie scheme to suppress firearm ownership conceived within the last 50 years. The state’s current governor, Gavin Newsom, is not only determined to cement this reputation statewide, he’s trying to bring California-style gun control to the country at large by promoting an ill-conceived amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would impose draconian gun control coast to coast.

If new offerings in 10mm Auto — both handguns and ammunition — are any indication, I would predict the cartridge is steadily regaining traction. Why the recent interest in 10mm? What niche or purpose could it fulfill? Since stumbling right out of the starting gate in a maelstrom, the 10mm almost experienced a quick and painless death. We are quite fortunate the 10mm didn’t vanish from history. Overshadowed by the .40 S&W, the 10mm is beginning to regain acceptance by the shooting fraternity and hunters alike who enjoy powerful, versatile semi-autos.
 

OR: Oregon Elk Hunter Shoots Wolf in Self-Defense

The animal came out from the woods in front of him at 30 yards and wouldn’t stop coming toward him. After yelling at the wolf and waving his arms in an effort to scare it off, the hunter said he had to shoot it.

The incident is still under investigation, but authorities say that the man self-reported shooting the animal. “Preliminary investigation revealed the hunter acted reasonably in shooting the wolf for personal safety,” the Oregon State Police (OSP) said in a press release. “The hunter stated he feared for his safety and fired one round, striking the wolf and killing it instantly.” Officials found that the man was only 18 yards from the wolf when he fired.

State House Representative, Josh Williams who represented a man recently found not guilty in a 2022 shooting said his client would have been able to prove the presumption of self-defense without waiting in jail for months.

Williams said in Lucas County, a person who uses lethal force is automatically charged with murder without the ability to show evidence until trial. Williams is hoping to create a pre-trial mechanism that brings evidence in during proceedings. Allowing some cases to avoid trial or have charges dropped altogether.
 

Even this Supreme Court knows it shot itself in the foot with a disastrous decision

It’s not every day that even the conservative Supreme Court seems ready to distance itself from its own ruling.

But the justices look poised to offer up a “just kidding” about its 2022 landmark decision, which created a new standard limiting the constitutionality of gun regulations. Whether the court saunters or sprints away from that decision, during arguments in United States v. Rahimi earlier this week, it signaled that it is likely to uphold a federal law barring those subject to domestic violence restraining orders from possessing guns.
 

U.S.-Style Gun Politics Are Spreading in Latin America

It was one of the last major actions by Ecuadorian President Guillermo Lasso before he called snap elections earlier this year: signing a decree allowing civilians to own and carry guns legally.

Lasso justified the move as empowering citizens to defend themselves against a terrifying surge in violence. Ecuador’s murder rate has quintupled since 2016. But his response wasn’t unique: Lasso’s decree represented another victory for a growing movement on the Latin American right, which looks to the U.S.’s looser gun laws as a model for arming civilians to defend themselves against criminals with illegal weapons.

First came the guns — the Mausers from Germany, the Carcanos from Italy — and then came the moral pretexts. These days, the American right is forever touting firearms as matters of principle or heralding them as hallmarks of a certain sort of rugged identity. But guns, before fetishists succeeded in converting them into symbols, were simply commodities, as unglamorous as washing machines.

Two suspects attacked an armed victim as he was unlocking the door to his home in California. The attacker had the drop, but as the homeowner tossed his drink at him, he pulled his gun and fought them off.

The homeowner was tacitly in a terrible position, and his wife and kids were indoors. The threat retreated but went out of view from the victim’s vantage point, and the homeowner went after the attacker.

“The federal government has mandated that all vehicles sold after 2026 must have a kill switch that can disable your vehicle based on your driving performance,” Rep. Thomas Massie “tweeted” Wednesday. “My amendment to defund that unconstitutional mandate failed tonight.”

“Here is the roll call,” Massie added, linking to the House Clerk’s “Final Vote Results” for his Part B Amendment No. 60 to H R 4820, the “Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2024.”

Clark Neily of the Cato Institute and Pepperdine Law Professor Jacob Charles join Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, to discuss.

First, expecting huge sums of money being directed toward mental health is not realistic. When John Engler was governor of Michigan mental health budgets were all but eliminated with the money being spent on more prisons.

Secondly, gun rights as we know them arise from the U.S. Supreme Court rewriting the Second Amendment. For all the rhetoric from some justices about using historical context and textualism in analyzing laws, all that was thrown out the window for the sake of political expediency.

A federal appeals court Thursday tossed part of a rule targeting build-at-home “ghost guns” in a case advocates brought, holding the regulation exceeds “limits on agency authority in the name of public policy.”

The US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed in part and vacated in part a lower court ruling that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives final “frame or receiver” rule targeting privately made firearms without serial numbers conflicts with the Gun Control Act.

“I have accomplished what I set out to do for West Virginia,” said Manchin, first elected in 2010 to represent the Mountain State, in a prerecorded video address. “I’ve made one of the toughest decisions of my life and decided that I will not be running for reelection to the United States Senate.”

America’s great divide over guns spilled out at the Denver Film Festival on Thursday with an emotional and sometimes contentious screening of the aptly titled new documentary “The Great Divide.”

Tom Donahue’s remarkably balanced film chronicles Colorado’s 2019 razor-thin passage of a so-called red flag law, which – when enforced – can temporarily prevent people who are exhibiting a high risk of hurting themselves or others from possessing firearms.

Dozens of mayors from across the country demanded on Thursday that Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson move forward to reinstate a federal assault weapons ban.

The more than 60 mayors, who sent their demand to Johnson in a letter dated Nov. 9, pointed to recent mass shootings, including one in Lewiston, Maine that claimed 18 lives recently, as impetus behind a renewed push to strengthen the country’s notoriously weak gun laws.
