A home invader’s night didn’t go as planned on Friday as he was shot in the leg by a resident of the home, police said. The man was shot after he kicked in the door of a home near 300 E. 3480 South at about 10:25 p.m. Friday, South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller said. A man who was in the house ran to a back room, grabbed a gun and then shot the invader in the leg, Keller said. The two people involved in the shooting knew each other and had some kind of history, Keller added.

It’s not often that a highbrow national publication like The New Yorker devotes one of its long, long profiles to a lobbyist in a state Capitol. But then, Marion Hammer is not your routine, run-of-the-rotunda lobbyist.

The debate about how to deal with guns in our country rages on in the wake of the shooting deaths of 14 students and three adults at a Florida high school Feb. 14. We are again confronting the challenge of remaining faithful to the unalienable right to life articulated in the Declaration of Independence – a challenge that the Constitution demands we protect from two angles.
 

Review: Bond Arms BullPup9

Looking at the Bond Arms BullPup9, something just looks wrong. The barrel seems impossibly short (in fact, the barrel is more than 3 inches long, which is generous for a subcompact pistol). This apparent magic is made possible by the “bullpup” configuration, which means the action of the pistol is behind the trigger group. While not entirely uncommon in long guns, the concept is rather unusual for handguns.

Lost in the current debate about gun control are three important points. First, how many lives are saved each year through the use of firearms. We know that for the last several years, according to the Centers for Disease Control (which tracks all U.S. deaths by cause), roughly 11,000 lives have been lost through non-suicide deaths involving a firearm each year.

The gun control debate continues as gun control advocates protested in front of a suburban gun shop on Saturday. From the streets to schools to shops, the gun control debate is raging across the country. One flashpoint is the sale of assault rifles like the one used in the massacre in Florida that left 17 dead. Major retailers like Walmart and Dick's Sporting Goods have said they won't sell guns to customers under 21 and both have restrictions on ammunition sales.

Idaho would become the latest state to prevent convicted domestic abusers from owning guns under a proposal headed to the House floor. The House Judiciary, Rules and Administration Committee, a Republican-dominant panel, on March 1 spent several hours debating the Democratic-backed measure before agreeing to send HB 585 to the House floor. The measure passed on a voice vote despite extensive questioning from the committee and one failed attempt to send the proposal to be amended — which would have effectively killed it for the year.

Democrats, in a feat of political exploitation unrivaled in the 21st century, are now using the kids from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to sign fundraising emails. Part of me had hoped the party of grave-dancing would find using children in this way would be a bridge too far, but the rest of me knew they didn’t have it in them to be tactful, decent people. After all, every left-wing activist group had, one day after the shooting, started sweeping into town to organize what they and their fellow travelers in the media all claimed was an “organic, grassroots” response to the tragedy.

Fighting gun violence and making schools safer were the hottest topics Saturday morning during an Iowa legislators forum at Madison Elementary School, Davenport. Other topics came up, such as school funding and tax cuts. But the most questions and the loudest applause from the large crowd surrounded those subjects in light of the Feb. 14 mass school shooting in Parkland, Fla., where 17 people were gunned down by a former student.

Seattle-based REI (for Recreational Equipment, Inc.) is the latest company to display an anti-gun-rights attitude, announcing Thursday that it has “placed a hold on future orders with Vista Outdoor brands, such as CamelBak and Giro” because Vista also owns gun and ammunition companies.

Seattle is considered the Northwest capitol of political “snowflake” liberals. They may be cringing Friday morning because of the disclosure that President Donald Trump met Thursday night with National Rifle Association executives and Vice President Mike Pence. This came 24 hours after the highly-publicized Wednesday meeting between Trump and Capitol Hill leaders from both parties on guns and school violence.
