Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear it in the news. Instructor Tony Simon joins host Rob Morse to talk about three new examples. All three intended victims faced a lethal threat, but non of their attackers were armed. Would you know what to do?

First story- Are you armed at home when a man with a knife kicks down your door?

Second story- Are you armed when you help your mom move?

Third story- Are you armed when a man threatens you and your daughter with a hammer?

What would you do in these situations? Text and podcast available at the link. (17 minutes)
 

NRA Insurance Protects Gun Owners Shooting in Self-defense

But if a defendant is required to show in a court of law that using deadly force was necessary, what's a good legal strategy? And how does that defendant pay for a pile of legal bills, and face a possible stint in jail — or worse?

That's where self-defense insurance comes in. Groups like the National Rifle Association (NRA), the U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), the Armed Citizens' Legal Defense Network and U.S. Law Shield offer insurance policies that protect gun owners who discharge their weapons in self-defense.

It's easy for martial artists to talk about self-defense for most of us. Most of us probably don't struggle with physical challenges throughout the day. But what about senior citizens? I have taught self-defense to people in their late 60s and 70s. They were actually quite mobile and had the strength to hit the focus mits hard. (I remember one student was a 73-year-old retired physical education teacher. She was in great shape, had an awesome attitude, and man could she knock the stuffings out of the kick shield!)

Did they know how many little boys and girls a gunman killed at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas?

Did they know there was a second church attack that same day in Fresno, Calif.?

Barry Young’s voice rose as he led an “intruder awareness and response training” for church personnel recently at Prairie Baptist Church in Scotts, Mich., near Kalamazoo.

“What happened in Texas isn’t new. It’s just larger than normal,” said Young, the vice president of church security ministries at Grandview, Mo.-based Strategos International, a Christian company that teaches people at schools, churches and other institutions how to deal with a violent intruder.

In the wake of the horrific church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Missouri State Representative Rocky Miller says he’s taking action to help keep local congregations safer.

Miller has filed a bill for the 2018 legislative session that would remove the liability for churches if their members opt to carry a weapon on the premises.

On Friday, Miller announced, “House Bill 1382, takes this liability away and allows for people that attend church to defend themselves or at least have someone nearby that can.”

He added, “If a church decides it does not want to protect its members, then they still can post ‘no weapons.’ I unfortunately I do not have this level of faith that I want to be in an area that declares itself a target.”

[Ana] Lopez’s first foray into firearms activism came as a result of becoming a co-leader of Cocks Not Glocks, the movement started by UT alumna Jessica Jin, who created the program to raise awareness about concealed carry by “fighting absurdity with absurdity”; Lopez would later further her activism by co-founding Students Against Campus Carry. I spoke to the Texas junior about her involvement with gun control reform and future plans for her activism.

A House committee gave preliminary approval Wednesday to a bill that would let gun owners with concealed-carry permits cross state lines without prior approval, as long as they followed local concealed-carry laws.

The strict party-line vote by the House Judiciary Committee followed a full day of debate, during which Democrats called the bill federal overreach that panders to the gun lobby, while Republicans argued it is just a logical extension of the Second Amendment.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act now heads to the full House, where supporters are optimistic about its chances: The bill already has 213 co-sponsors, including every Republican member of the Arizona delegation.

A potential mass shooting that Rockledge authorities say was headed off by "good guys with guns" last week has some Second Amendment rights proponents calling for more people becoming responsible gun owners.

But there are also calls for caution, as the nation continues to reel from the disturbing trend of gun violence in public places.

"We (law enforcement) call ourselves the first responders, but in reality, we're the second responders," said former Melbourne police Detective Mark Laderwarg, who is also a firearms instructor and an advocate for gun rights.

In a huge win for Second Amendment supporters, the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday held a mark-up of H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, and favorably reported an amended version of the bill to the full House. Anti-gun Democrats on the Committee offered a lengthy list of amendments to weaken or gut the bill, all of which were defeated.

The last 30 years have seen a continual expansion of the right to carry concealed handguns for self-defense within the United States, even as the nationwide violent crime rate has plummeted during the same period.

However, during her most active years as gun control crusader, O’Donnell employed armed security guards. In 2000, the pro-gun community was quick to point out her hypocrisy when it was reported that a bodyguard O’Donnell employed to protect her son had applied for a concealed carry permit and that the star approved. O’Donnell’s hypocrisy was so galling that in 2001 a gun rights supporter instituted, and NRA republished, the tongue-in-cheek “Rosie’” Awards, which were “bestowed upon the most hypocritical enemies of the Second Amendment.”

Today, O’Donnell is still a vocal gun control supporter and still enjoys the protection firearms afford.

The Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania remanded a case back to trial court involving a Stroud Township gun owner who challenged the constitutionality of not being allowed to discharge firearms on his property due to a local ordinance.

The appellate court ruled Nov. 17 that the trial court failed to conduct any constitutional analysis of plaintiff Jonathan Barris’ claim “that the ordinance, which restricts his ability to practice firing his firearms on his property ... unconstitutionally infringes on his rights under both the Second Amendment and Article I, Section 21 of the Constitution of Pennsylvania either facially or as applied.”

This beat the previous single day record by more than seventeen thousand checks. The two-previous single-day records were Black Friday 2016 (185,713 checks) and Black Friday 2015 (185,345).

A Missouri lawmaker plans to file legislation making it harder to modify rifles to make them work like fully automatic guns.

State Representative Richard Brown, a democrat from Kansas City, drafted a law making it illegal to possess, buy, sell, repair, manufacture or transport bump stocks and trigger cranks in the state.

Both items can make guns fire more bullets in a given period of time.

Patrick requested Friday that Paxton issue an opinion clarifying whether congregants can bring guns to church and whether churches are exempt from state fees for creating volunteer security teams. Patrick said in the request that he hoped Paxton could inform more churches "what legal options they have to improve their security."

Patrick made it clear in his letter to the attorney general that he feels state law allows congregants to bring guns to church unless a sign at the door says otherwise. He also wrote that a recently passed law exempts churches from fees other institutions must pay to form their own security forces.

On Friday, December 1, the California Department of Justice, Bureau of Firearms (“DOJ”) submitted its proposed regulations regarding the issuance of ammunition vendor licenses to the Office of Administrative Law (“OAL”) for review, regulations which are substantively unchanged from DOJ’s original proposal from July 14, 2017.

California law required DOJ to have implemented these regulations no later than July 1, 2017. This is because beginning January 1, 2018, almost all ammunition sales in California must be processed by or through a licensed ammunition vendor or California licensed firearms dealer.

In the new action-adventure The Reliant, former Hercules Kevin Sorbo continues his Christ-like resurrection/Road to Calvary as a “faith-friendly” movie star, playing the patriarch of a family that finds itself driven into the woods after the collapse of the U.S. dollar sparks violent mass riots. “Facing starvation and threats from encroaching gangs, they begin to doubt God’s love. Upon whom will they be reliant?” asks the film’s fundraising page, an awkwardly phrased existential question to which the movie provides the obvious, American answer: a gun. And now The Reliant wants to give you one!
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908 [by an Indian extremist opposed to Gandhi's agreement with Smuts], whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defend me, I told him it was his duty to defend me even by using violence. Hence it was that I took part in the Boer War, the so-called Zulu Rebellion and [World War I]. Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. — Mohandas K. Gandhi, Young India, August 11, 1920 from Fischer, Louis ed.,The Essential Gandhi, 1962
