Higher education and public safety officials across the state say a bill aimed at making campuses safer by allowing people to carry concealed handguns on school grounds would have the opposite effect. “Based on my 40 years in law enforcement, I know that when there are more guns allowed, there is more risk and less safety,” said Roland LaCroix, chief of campus police at the University of Maine in Orono.
 

IUPUI Prof Warns About Danger of Guns — and It's Not What You Think

Few would dispute that a gun, when used improperly, can be dangerous to your health. But a new study shows that guns, even when fired as safely as possible, can hurt you. The study by an IUPUI scientist and colleagues found that firing a gun at a shooting range, either indoors or outdoors, releases a high level of lead-filled dust that coats the shooter. This dust can enter the shooter’s bloodstream, potentially resulting in elevated lead exposure. Or, a shooter who has young children can bring this dust home on his or her skin or clothes, exposing the children to the lead.

Trevor Brooks, a convicted murderer who attended a Silicon Valley entrepreneurship program after getting out of prison, has an idea he thinks could reduce the rate of gun violence in Baltimore: Let people use an app to turn in guns and make bail. Given the choice between giving up a gun or sitting in Central Booking, "they're going to turn the guns in as fast as they can," Brooks said.

The Weird Thing That Happened As Firearms Sales Surged

Firearm sales hit a record high last year as the FBI processed more than 27.5 million background checks on gun buyers. This year, sales have eased up a bit, but they're still on track to hit the second-highest number ever. Despite the dramatic increase in the number of guns in circulation, though, there was an interesting statistic that dropped. No, it wasn't the crime rate, which, although substantially lower than it was decades ago, has been inching higher in recent periods. Instead it was the number of accidental firearms fatalities.

A Cleveland man is going after the city of Cleveland's police department for what's rightfully— Constitutionally-stamped— his. That's the gist of a recent lawsuit filed on behalf of Brian Bridges against the city in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas court. Following a 2015 justified shooting, Bridges claims the city are still holding onto his firearm and wont' return it even though the case is closed.

Chicago police are used to facing the possibility of death every time they put on their badges. But it's safe to assume they paid special attention to the alert on police radio channels Monday advising them to "expect a heightened presence of Satan Disciples" in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the city's Southwest Side. The real news: "This gang is in possession of numerous military-style rifles that are capable of piercing police protection."

Drescher, 66, is charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the August death of Reed Carlsen, 42, of West Allis during a random encounter in front of the District 6 station of the Milwaukee Police Department, where Drescher immediately went inside, reported the shooting and was arrested.

Mainstream media pounds away at gun use quoting endless statistics that are intended to convince the American people to run down to the police station and turn in their guns.

“It’s Never Going To Happen!”

In addition to misquotes, data distortion, and outright lies, they ALWAYS omit one absolutely critical piece of information . . . lives saved.

The Domino's Pizza driver who shot and killed a 16-year-old robbery suspect Saturday night in Mesquite has a valid concealed weapons permit from Arizona, police said. Authorities originally said the driver, whose name hasn't been released, did not have a handgun license. Lt. Brian Parrish, a Mesquite police spokesman, said the officer who made the initial report wrote that the driver had drawn a concealed-carry pistol. Police searched the driver's name to see if he had a Texas concealed carry permit and learned he did not. But an investigator determined that the driver does have a permit from Arizona, which is also valid in Texas, Parrish said.

The Florida Legislature has passed a bill that amends Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground self-defense law. Senate Bill 128, which was first passed by the Senate in March, seeks to shift the burden of proof from the defendant to the prosecutor. As it currently stands, the Stand Your Ground law requires defendants to prove during the pretrial hearing that they are immune from criminal prosecution under the self-defense law.

A woman found covered in blood hiding in the woods near County Road 484 will not be charged for the February stabbing death of a 58-year-old man. Assistant State Attorney Robin Arnold wrote in a memorandum that, “based on the facts and circumstances of the case, there is no specific evidence to rebut her claim that Terry Hall assaulted her and she acted in self-defense.” The woman, Tiffani Jennings, 25, changed her account of the events leading up to Hall’s death, Arnold wrote, but “every version is consistent in her claim of self-defense.”
 

Seattle ‘Gun Violence Tax’ A Failure, Says Radio Host

Veteran Seattle radio host Dori Monson on Monday ripped embattled Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Monday for a spike in shootings, asserting that the infamous “gun violence tax” adopted in 2015 has only “made it tougher for law-abiding people who want to defend themselves against this growing problem.”

Like a gun control initiative pushed into law by an initiative in 2014 that was heavily financed by wealthy Seattle-area elitists, the gun tax hasn’t prevented gun-related crimes. Initiative 594, passed after proponents spent more than $10 million on a lopsided campaign, mandated so-called “universal background checks.” It hasn’t prevented the wrong people from getting gun because they simply ignore the law.

Progressives must shut down truth-tellers, particularly the conservative ones, because the opposing view proves how badly their policies and ideas really stink. “Shut down” is where I find myself after taking Professor (emeritus) George Kennedy to task over his ridiculous comparison of the National Rifle Association to the Islamic State. Kennedy compared the influence of the terror group to the political lobbying influence of the NRA in a Columbia Missourian op-ed titled “ The NRA’s Influence is Dangerous to Us All.” How ominous.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. — Noah Webster in "An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution," 1787, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at p. 56 (New York, 1888).
