Watch a Dramatic Use of a Gun in Self-Defense That Didn’t Make News

If a defensive use of a firearm goes unreported in the media and nobody hears about it, does it really count?

I’m happy to report that the answer is a resounding “yes,” and I have evidence to prove it.

A man who was patrolling his employer’s property to protect it from thieves, confronted by an apparent carjacker, drew his legally carried firearm and subdued the stranger as police officers arrived and arrested the man.
 

H.R. 127 – A Bill Designed to Express Hostility Toward Law-Abiding Gun Owners

All gun control bills share the same basic goal: a world in which fewer people own firearms. Some bills simply ban certain types of firearms or ammunition outright. Others place obstacles in the path of owning firearms or ammunition to make them more difficult and expensive to obtain, thereby shrinking the market for them. The fundamental flaw of these approaches is that they treat all law-abiding firearm owners as would-be criminals, when the reality is that most firearm-related assaults and homicides are committed by people who completely disregard the law, including laws against taking human life.
 

WI: Judge denies new arrest warrant for Kyle Rittenhouse, Antioch teen accused of killing 2 during Wisconsin protest

Rittenhouse's attorneys argued that threats have forced Rittenhouse into hiding. He moved into an undisclosed "safe house" after conservative groups posted his initial $2 million bail in November. His attorneys say they have offered to reveal his current address to prosecutors but only if they would agree to keep it sealed.

"It is of concern to the defense that any information regarding Kyle's location being publicly available would result in immediate harm to the Rittenhouse family," Mark Richards, one of Rittenhouse's attorneys, wrote in a filing.

Binger refused to make a deal, saying a murder defendant's address is public record.

The process to get a handgun license typically takes just a few days. Hoosiers must complete an application, get fingerprinted and visit their local police agency.
 

We Fight Two Fights: Second Amendment Rights are Lost without Political Action

I am endlessly amused when I hear a gun owner tell me, “I am not political,” or, “I stay out of politics.” In a perfect world, our liberties would be secure enough that we could ignore politics at our convenience. However, we don’t live in a perfect world and there are political forces hell-bent on taking your constitutional rights away from you. If you believe in maintaining the tools and skills to defend yourself from evil, then congratulations on preparing for that fight, should it come to you. However, you need to be an active combatant in a second fight: the fight to maintain your liberty.

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who promised to go national with her issues after Democrats unseated her from two House committees, opened with a bang today in proposing legislation to create a national gun sanctuary.

Her “Second Amendment Preservation Act” would bar federal funds for any gun control effort and block the sometimes heavy-handed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from enacting any new rules.

Three years after the Parkland school shooting, gun control activists are optimistic that thoughts and prayers finally will be traded for concrete action.

Virginia Tech. Sandy Hook. Pulse. Las Vegas. Parkland. Those words have become shorthand for the darkest days in America’s gun violence epidemic.
 

NM: Legislation would make ghost guns illegal in New Mexico

Legislation to outlaw so-called ghost guns in New Mexico is advancing in the state House of Representatives, over the objection of gun owners who say it would violate both the first and second amendments.

House Bill 166 would make it a fourth-degree felony for anybody other than a licensed firearms dealer to use a three-dimensional printer to make guns or gun parts. It would also make it illegal to distribute instructions on how to use a 3-D printer to manufacture a gun; and to sell, possess or transfer any gun or gun parts made in violation of the law.

SC: South Carolina Has Chance to Pass Open Carry Law

There are only five states which currently ban the open carry of handguns in most public areas, most of the time. They are: Illinois, New York, California, Florida, and South Carolina. New Jersey and Hawaii ban open carry in practice, but legally, anyone with a permit can open carry. It is just extremely difficult to obtain a permit.

South Carolina is moving toward restoring the right to openly carry handguns in public with House Bill 3094, labeled “Open Carry with Training”.

In the past two weeks, KMVT has brought viewers stories of cities that have decided to become a Second Amendment Sanctuary City. A Twin Falls man now wants his city leaders to do the same.

Sixty-seven-year-old Lanny Denton is an advocate for the Second Amendment and people’s rights to bear arms, and he is concerned that there are currently three U.S. House bills aimed at restricting people’s gun rights: H.R 127, H.R. 130, and H.R. 121. He feels in recent years it seems as though the Second Amendment has been under attack.

Sixteen other states have done it. And Indiana now looks ready to join them in getting rid of the requirement that a person have a license in order to carry a loaded weapon on them or in their vehicle.

Earlier this week, the House of Representatives held a hearing to consider allowing what’s called “constitutional carry.”

For 10 years, Doug and Kristin daSilva have operated Red Rock Firearms in Enid on the premise of promoting the sport of shooting, gun safety and a strong belief in the second amendment.

Doug says the nation's forefathers put in the right to bear arms right behind the freedom of speech and religion.

"Without that, you can't guarantee anything else,' he said. "It is literally a production of our liberties.'

Most Americans would do everything within their power to protect themselves and their loved ones in times of danger. Yet local gun ranges, bootcamps, and even law enforcement or military training may not have provided you with the skills truly necessary should firearms self-defence be required.

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute was founded in April 1996, and two decades on has grown to be the pinnacle of self-defence, family protection, handgun training. With a community of just under one million responsible citizens trained, they truly are the largest and greatest supplier of self-defence training and knowledge in the US.

We, as concerned and responsible citizens of a free republic, are today challenged by some of the most pressing questions of our time. What techniques are available to protect myself and my family if surrounded or attacked by a mob? How do you keep a calm mind in difficult situations so you are able to think clearly? Should you interact with or ignore verbal aggression? What advice is there for using your vehicle to either escape from or use as appropriate force against a mob?

Journey is a district judge in Sedgwick County, Kansas, and formerly served in that state’s legislature.
 

Below The Radar – Gun Violence Reduction Resources Act of 2021

While a lot of attention is rightfully being paid to the threat posed by HR 127, the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act that we have covered earlier this month and in the last Congress, there are other bills targeting our Second Amendment rights. As of this writing, a search for the term “firearm” under legislation in the 117th Congress reveals 29 entries.

Not all of them are massive assaults on our rights. Some are relatively minor, or they seem neutral but the lead sponsor of the legislation means that they require significant scrutiny. One such bill is HR 121, the Gun Violence Reduction Resources Act of 2021. The lead sponsor is Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee, who also introduced HR 127.
