“During the protest, a white male entered the crowd and began documenting the protest. That individual was pushed from behind by a white protester, which led to a physical altercation between the individual and several other white males,” Tallahassee Police said. “During the altercation, the individual was knocked to the ground. He got back to his feet and brandished a gun. TPD officers quickly engaged, took the individual into custody, and peacefully dispersed the crowd. There were no reported injuries.

Submitter's note: Why did they arrest the victim and not the attackers?

Facebook removed a post by Stanford College Republicans because it violated the social media company’s rules against “nudity and sexual activity,” according to screenshots of the notification provided to The College Fix by the conservative student group.

But the post in question had nothing to do with nudity or sexual activity.

A couple near St. Louis emerging from their mansion brandishing firearms as Black Lives Matter demonstrators marched by the house. Men roaming the streets with rifles during protests over racial inequality, punctuated by two people being killed in Wisconsin and another in Oregon over the weekend.

Senate Bill 317, sponsored by Senator Bill Coley, allows those school employees who are allowed to lawfully carry a concealed firearm for self-defense on school property to do so without being required to undergo an extensive police training program. SB 317 clarifies the intent of the law and allows local school districts to continue to determine what is in the best interest of their faculty and students.

And because the Second Amendment does not protect concealed-carry, the plaintiffs argue open-carry must be protected and any law that burdens that right must be strictly scrutinized by courts.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Kimberly Mueller found the men may have a point — but the point wasn’t enough to warrant a preliminary injunction of California’s open-carry permit scheme.

For months, Reese Monson, who helps organize security for the hundreds of protesters who gather in downtown Portland, Ore., every night, has advised them to use shields made of plywood, pool noodles and 55-gallon drums — tools to deflect the riot-control measures used by the police.

Now, Mr. Monson said they were considering a new kind of shield when they go out to demonstrate against racial injustice: bulletproof vests.

Firearm Prohibitionists Shy Away From Gun Control in Senate Campaign Ads

How unpopular is gun control in states with contested Senate races? Ask Everytown for Gun Safety, a firearm prohibition lobby backed by billionaire Michael Bloomberg. They’re spending big piles of Bloomberg’s cash running campaign ads to flip Senate seats in Iowa and North Carolina. But for a gun control advocacy group, their messaging is suspiciously silent on … well … gun control.

So much for having the courage of their convictions.
 

Debunking NPR’s Bizarre ‘In Defense of Looting’ Interview

Yet Osterweil’s real ideological message—which NPR is uncritically promoting through its massive, taxpayer-backed platform—is the Marxist argument that property destruction is nonviolent because property rights are invalid. (Unfortunately, Osterweil is by no means the only left-wing voice making this argument.)

“In terms of potential crimes that people can commit against the state, it's basically nonviolent,” Osterweil offers in the interview. “It's just property. It's not actually hurting any people.”

The Republican nominee for sheriff in metro Phoenix spoke Monday to a group of conservative Arizona State University students who have been criticized for their fundraising efforts for the legal defense of a 17-year-old who authorities said had fatally shot two protesters last week in Wisconsin.

Jerry Sheridan said he isn't worried about creating an unfavorable appearance by speaking at the online fundraiser by the College Republicans United, though he made it clear he wasn't endorsing or criticizing the group's fundraising.
 

Was Kyle Rittenhouse's possession of a gun protected by the Second Amendment?

Rittenhouse’s attorney, John Pierce of Pierce Bainbridge, plans to fight the underage weapons possession charge, arguing that at 17, his client could be part of the “well regulated Militia” mentioned in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Put another way, Pierce will likely argue that Wisconsin’s ban on firearms possession by 17-year-olds is unconstitutional because a 17-year-old minor is on the same Second Amendment footing as an adult.

Therefore, the argument goes, the Wisconsin law unconstitutionally restricts Second Amendment-protected firearms possession. Pierce will likely add that the American colonies expected, and sometimes required, citizens under 18 to have and bear arms.

Political Elite Value Their Own Safety, NOT YOURS

The hypocrisy of the pampered political elite on the topic of personal safety is reaching breathtaking new levels. No longer content to merely deprive the citizenry of the means with which to defend themselves, politicians in some jurisdictions are depriving residents of police protection as well. All the while, these contemptible figures have shown a keen interest in making arrangements to secure their own safety.

Anti-gun political actors have always ignored the logical implications of their own policies. Hillary Clinton travels with a bevy of bodyguards, as did Democrat mega-donor and NRA opponent Harvey Weinstein.

A federal judge Monday affirmed a set of firearms regulations approved by Washington voters in 2018, ruling against a legal challenge raised by gun-right advocates.

Initiative 1639 raised the legal purchase age of a semi-automatic rifle to 21 and put in place enhanced background checks for their purchase. It also prohibited the sale of such rifles to out-of-state residents.

Voters passed the measure with nearly 60 percent support, but gun-rights advocates have vehemently opposed it. Some sheriffs have said they wouldn’t enforce the law because they believed it was unconstitutional.

On the eve of his visit to Wisconsin, President Donald Trump defended the 17-year-old who fatally shot two protesters in Wisconsin last week, embracing an attorney's account that Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self-defense.

Referring to cell phone video of the incident, Trump told reporters on Monday that Rittenhouse was "trying to get away from them, I guess, it looks like" and said that protesters "violently attacked him." Trump repeatedly noted the shooting remained under investigation but also appeared to lean into Rittenhouse's self-defense argument.

The attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old from Antioch charged with killing two people and injuring another in a shooting during a Kenosha protest last week, claimed self-defense on Fox News Monday night.

John Pierce appeared on Tucker Carlson Monday night to insist Rittenhouse was defending himself when he fired his assault rifle several times, killing two people and injuring a third.

"I guess it looks like and he fell and then they very violently attacked him and it was something we're looking at right now and it's under investigation," Trump said at the briefing Monday evening.

"I guess he was in very big trouble. He probably would have been killed. But it's under investigation," Trump said.
