Seven women bought more than 30 guns from Dunham's Sports and firearms stores in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties for "White Boy," a convicted felon who was banned from having firearms, to resell on the streets, officials said.

Ruemondo Murray is accused of directing Regina Blanchard, Shakira May, Precious Prevot, Yalanda Hardrick, Tiffany Simmons, Candace Simmons and Tywana Murray to buy guns for him at stores around Metro Detroit.

A 19-year special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Detroit told officials the women bought more than 30 handguns for Murray in about two months.

Murray was previously convicted of armed robbery in 2013 and 2006 and a firearms offense in 2006.

Police are investigating the burglary of Saginaw Township gun and fireworks store.

Late in the night of Thursday, Aug. 1, or early Friday morning, several individuals broke an exterior window of Showtime Guns & Ammo Sales, 3621 Bay Road, and entered the business, said Saginaw Township Police Lt. Rick Herren. Surveillance cameras captured video of the culprits stealing “a significant quantity” of firearms, Herren said.

No alarms alerted police to the break-in. The burglary wasn’t discovered until employees showed up to work Friday morning.

Saginaw Township police, Michigan State Police troopers, and agents from the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives are currently investigating.

“Guns and Self-Defense” is a new book by Robert A. Waters and Sim Waters. The authors describe 23 cases involving ordinary citizens who use their defensive firearms to survive criminal attacks. As the authors point out, these self-defense success stories are rarely covered by the national media because they don’t fit the media’s bias.

Rep. John Burt, a Republican from Goffstown, filed the suit challenging the rule. He said the judge's decision was not a surprise and he's "looking ahead to the Supreme Court."

A 17-year-old who tried to rob a North Nashville restaurant Thursday is the second teenager to die in a case of self defense in the past ten days, according to Metro police.

Metro Nashville police say Jaylin Cummins died after he tried to rob Knock Out Wings on Jefferson Street around 9:40 p.m.

Five employees were in the restaurant when he entered, wearing all black clothing and his face covered, police said.

He had a gun and demanded money from the cash register. While one of the employees dealt with him, one of her co-workers saw a chance to retrieve a pistol carried by another employee who had his hands up.

Glassboro, New Jersey Police Chief John Polillo, et al., which challenges the State of New Jersey’s “justifiable need” (i.e., “good cause”) law that functions as a de facto ban on carry licenses issued to law-abiding people. The brief was authored by FPC Director of Research and attorney Joseph Greenlee, a Second Amendment expert and historian.

School districts in the Empire State are now forbidden under a new law from authorizing teachers or other staff to carry firearms on campus.

The move came with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signature on legislation this week forwarded to his desk by the state’s Democrat-controlled legislature. The bill, S.101A, stipulates that schools can’t issue an authorization to carry a gun to any teacher, administrator or other people not primarily employed as a school resource officer, law enforcement officer or security guard.

A half century ago, if a child or teenager died, the most common reason was from injuries in an automobile crash.

Today, if an American child or teenager dies, firearm-related injuries and automobile crashes are almost equally to blame.

For the second summer in a row, Robert Benedict is hosting a celebration of the Second Amendment on Saturday on the Town Square.

“It’s not a protest, it’s not a demonstration, it’s not a rally, it’s not anything like that,” Benedict said. “It is purely a celebration.”

He invites anyone to join him at the gathering from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Broadway and Cache. Benedict, a British citizen, said he comes from a country where “freedoms have been eroded,” instilling in him appreciation for America’s Bill of Rights.

The election of veteran Tacoma Democrat State Rep. Laurie Jinkins as the next speaker of the Washington State House of Representatives is raising alarms among Evergreen State Second Amendment activists because she has an anti-gun track record that includes taking contributions from Everytown for Gun Safety and Alliance for Gun Responsibility action funds.

Jinkins made history by being the first woman elected to the Speaker’s post in state history. She is openly gay, as noted by the Seattle PI.com. Only seven other states have female speakers: Colorado, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, neighboring Oregon, and Vermont, according to the Associated Press.
