“Death threats poured in by email,' he writes. Really? Actual 'death threats'? And they 'poured in'? Each one of those would be a crime. Have these 'death threats' been reported to the authorities? Which ones? If not, why not?"

"I heard this very young voice screaming in terror. The kids were so scared," said Wenger, who recently took a concealed carry training course at Lawson Handgun Institute in Chicago.

A situation where young children are in danger could be justified, instructor David Lawson said. But clearly, things worked out best because she had not used a gun.

Wenger, 57, is deciding whether she wants to carry a firearm. She likes the idea of being able to protect herself, but isn't sure about dealing with the consequences if she ever had to use a weapon.

Queen said that in most situations where someone is shot, police likely would initially view the person holding the gun as the assailant, regardless of the circumstances.

But The Florida Times-Union ( http://bit.ly/1cUCBCO) reports Circuit Judge James Daniel made it clear Friday that the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office made an error in giving Marissa Alexander too much leeway to leave home while she was on home detention.

“The homeowner said he made eye contact with Caleb, and there was a dazed look on his face, so he knew he was on drugs, alcohol, whatever the case may be,” Shawn Gordley said. “As he came up the steps, he said he saw no weapon, nothing like that.”

Caleb Gordley kept walking up the staircase, where Wilder’s girlfriend was sleeping upstairs. Frightened, Wilder fired one warning shot and one aimed at Caleb Gordley. “Caleb, according to a statement, turned around, didn’t attack the person shooting at him and simply said, according to the statement, ‘You just shot me,’” Shawn Gordley said. “At which point, he turned back around and proceeded to walk to what he thought was his own bedroom.”
 

IL: NRA offers shooters' insurance

Shooting someone in self-defense can be costly.

But if you do end up being charged with a felony, the National Rifle Association offers its members an insurance policy that could pay thousands of dollars in legal costs.

The concealed carry liability insurance, which ranges from $165 a year for a $100,000 policy to $600 a year for $1 million in coverage, reimburses attorney fees and other legal costs resultingfrom criminal or civil case defense. Proceeds from the premiums go to the NRA.

The policyholder never sees a check. When a policy is paid, the money goes directly to the attorney. But there is a major caveat. The policyholder has to be acquitted of the charges before one dime is paid out.

On Thursday, a jury in El Paso County's 4th Judicial District Court determined that shoplifter Bryson Dewberry bore most of the responsibility for the injuries he sustained in a 2010 shooting outside a Colorado Springs liquor store. The Colorado Springs Gazette reported that 65 percent of the blame for Dewberry being shot in the face was his own, while 35 percent of the blame belonged to store owner Chang Ho Yi. Because of this, Dewberry is not entitled to the monetary damages he was seeking from Yi through a civil lawsuit.

As the George Washington Bridge scandal continues to unfold, threatening the political future of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie – whose state concealed carry law may be facing a Supreme Court challenge thanks to yesterday’s Second Amendment Foundation petition – one might wonder why the press has not applied the same level of scrutiny to Barack Obama according to a principle expressed yesterday by Prof. Alan Dershowitz.

A Blaine County jury deliberated just over an hour late Thursday afternoon before reaching a not guilty verdict in a shooting case against a Hailey man.

The verdict ended a three-day trial for 30-year-old Adam Keith Boyd on a felony aggravated battery charge. Boyd had been accused of shooting 29-year-old Anthony Parsons, also of Hailey, in the abdomen during an altercation on July 13, 2013 near the Subway Sandwich shop on Main Street in Hailey.
 

IL: Chicago needs to adhere to judge's firearms ruling

Chicago has the unfortunate reputation of being the murder capital of the U.S.

It wouldn’t be this way if Chicagoans were allowed to own guns and protect themselves.

In their infinite wisdom, Chicago politicians have fought tooth and nail to deny citizens the ability to buy and possess guns in the city limits.

And they wonder why the murder rate is so high.
One of the reasons is that many of the law-abiding citizens don’t have the right to defend themselves because of these politicians’ disdain for the Second Amendment. It is very telling that Chicago police recover more illegal guns than officers in any city in the country.

Florida Carry, Inc. has today filed a lawsuit against the University Florida (UF), seeking a permanent injunction to protect the rights of students, faculty, and the public from the university’s illegal and unconstitutional regulations prohibiting firearms and weapons on all university property.

Since 1987 the Florida Legislature has preempted firearms law and issued state-wide licenses to carry for self-defense.

In December Florida Carry won a similar case against the University of North Florida (UNF). In Florida Carry v. UNF the First District Court of Appeal ruled that “The legislature’s primacy in firearms regulation derives directly from the Florida Constitution…

Millner will always have a criminal record in Florida, despite the judge deeming him innocent. And, Inverness Republican Senator Charlie Dean says that needs to be fixed. He wants the bill to expunge the records of those deemed innocent.

“I think somewhere we need to protect the innocent person’s record for that. Although he [Millner] may never need it, had he been 40-years younger and had an application somewhere in his life, it would show there was a charge placed against him, and I think that’s wrong,” said Dean.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) today asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the appeal in their challenge to New Jersey’s unconstitutional carry laws.

Prepared by attorneys Alan Gura (who won Second Amendment victories in the groundbreaking Heller and McDonald cases) and David Jensen, the petition filed today in Drake v. Jerejian is the latest effort to bring a right-to-carry case before the high court and is the next step in the process of resolving the differing opinions of lower courts on the right to bear arms for personal protection outside the home.

And while Emanuel did not offer any real indication of what regulations he may be considering other than the “obvious” decision to keep gun shops away from schools, although grateful for him not pursuing an appeal against Chang’s decision, gun-rights advocates are still skeptical of what restrictions Emanuel may attempt to impose.

“I think he’s going to try to regulate everything so tightly that nothing can happen,” said Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association. “I think we will continue to fight the mayor, and if we can compel the city to let these people operate their businesses in a reasonable fashion, that’s what we’ll do.”

The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would treat state-issued concealed-carry permits like driver’s licenses and allow permit holders to carry guns in all states. Only the District of Columbia does not have a concealed carry law.

For Houston gun store owner Jim Pruett, the bill would be beneficial. He has a Texas concealed carry license and carries his gun wherever he goes — except when he travels to some other states.

A man’s home is his castle… Hence your right to protect it via Missouri’s Castle Doctrine. Division III Circuit Judge Gary Kamp says the concept is as old as the common laws in England. He says if someone enters your home and you feel like you are in serious physical danger or even death – you can use deadly force. He tells KZIM KSIM this is basically a self defense law that has evolved over the last few years.

January 8th, the Maryland General Assembly convened its 2014 legislative session.

Over the next ninety days, your NRA-ILA will be actively engaged in defending the Second Amendment in Annapolis.

While the 2013 legislative session represented the most aggressive attack on your Second Amendment rights in decades, the fight is far from over and anti-gun attacks will likely continue in this election year session.

Crimson Trace announces a first-in-the-industry laser sighting system—the Laserguard (LG-443)— that securely fits onto one of the industry’s newest handguns: the small Glock 42, a .380 caliber pistol designed for pocket carry and self-defense concealment.

The new Glock 42 is designed to fit the hands of most women and shooters with smaller hands—and the new Laserguard LG-443 will add little to the firearm’s overall size or weight to continue with the smaller dimensions that the pistol offers consumers.
