A man traveling to California came to the rescue of a wounded state trooper who was struggling with the gunman who had shot him on an isolated stretch of Interstate 10, authorities said.

The man, who was with his wife, stopped his car when he came upon a rollover accident and saw the struggle, according to Col. Frank Milstead, Arizona Department of Public Safety director.

The trooper told the man he needed help, and the man returned to his car, got his gun and fired at the assailant when he refused to listen to orders to stop and back away, Milstead said.

Submitter's note: This probably won't be on mainstream tonight, but it was on Drudge Report.

The U.S. Supreme Court is being asked to decide whether law-abiding citizens need to provide law enforcement with a specific reason to be able to legally carry a concealed weapon for self-defense.

Part-time San Diegan Edward Peruta and other gun owners who were denied concealed-carry permits by the San Diego County sheriff filed a petition Thursday asking the high court to consider hearing their case, which they lost on appeal in June at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
 

OR: Oregon bans weapons in state workplaces

Oregon officials banned state employees from carrying weapons in the workplace unless they're needed for their jobs, causing consternation Thursday among Republican leaders in the Legislature.

The Oregon Department of Administrative Services said it imposed the ban, which became effective on Jan. 6, in hopes of "providing a safe and secure environment for employees and visitors."

Banned are firearms, daggers, slingshots, and a host of other specified weapons. Oddly, even knobkerries were mentioned. Knobkerries are clubs used by indigenous people like the Zulus in southern Africa, and are probably unknown to most Oregonians.

How prepared are you to survive a deadly encounter? Do you have a plan? The new video series “Finding Fearless” helps address these questions that we don’t often ask at the dinner table.

Thousands of citizens every day meet evil in the streets, parking lots and even in their own homes. Unprepared, scared and caught off-guard, we can fall victim to ruthless crime and have our possessions, peace of mind, and even our lives taken from us.

Investigators say a rural northeast Iowa homeowner was shot by a suspected home intruder before returning fire and killing the man.

Investigators said Thursday that 46-year-old Steven Anthony showed up at the Sumner home of John Eimers last Friday asking to speak with him. After a discussion, they say Anthony shot Eimers at close range with a handgun.

Eimers returned fire, killing Anthony. Eimers was shot multiple times during the encounter and was later treated and released from University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Claude Werner, AKA, “The Tactical Professor” knows more about defensive revolver use than anyone I know… and I know some people.

He’s clued me in to the fact that revolvers chambered for the .327 Federal Magnum—which is technically a super magnum—may be the most overlooked and capable self-defense revolver cartridge on the market. Why?

As of the new year, Missouri citizens are no longer required to obtain their concealed carry license to be armed in public. While the law, known as constitutional carry, does not extend beyond the state's borders, there won't be any restrictions for citizens who wish to purchase and carry a gun.

Local law enforcement shared mixed feelings about the law.

In Mountain Pine, Arkansas, a shop owner returned to his Mountain Pine Corner Store around midnight Wednesday evening after grabbing some dinner.

His store was closed but he heard the intrusion alarms going off. He reported that he went inside and saw an armed intruder and some money sitting outside of the register.

He rushed behind the counter and got his shotgun. He told the intruder to drop his gun, but instead the suspect fired a shot. The store owner fired back, striking the would-be burglar in the face.
 

FL: NRA’s influence with Florida lawmakers is powerful

Marion Hammer’s phone rang as news bulletins reported that five tourists were shot to death at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

The longtime Florida gun lobbyist said a friend told her that the Jan. 6 shootings probably ended any chance of the Legislature’s passing a law to allow licensed gun owners to carry weapons in airport common areas.

But Hammer said the shooting helped her cause, proving that more guns in places like airports were needed.

That rationale will find a lot of support from Republican legislators in the 2017 session.

A state lawmaker wants to allow guns in the capitol, carried by any one with a valid permit.

Sen. Nathan Dahm (R-Tulsa) wrote Senate Bill 66 to protect what he said is a fundamental right guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.

“It’s not so much about a need [to carry firearms in the capitol],” he told NewsChannel 4. “It’s about the right for people to defend themselves. I don’t think you should have to give up that right to self-defense to exercise your right to come and petition your government.”

After witnessing disarmed French civilians cowering before a few Islamists rampaging through Paris with illegal guns, top officials in the Czech Republic are determined to ensure that similar tragedies do not strike in their own country. Following recent comments by Czech President Miloš Zeman urging citizens to arm themselves in preparation for a potential “super-Holocaust” perpetrated by jihadists flooding into Europe, senior government ministers in the Eastern European nation are now proposing a constitutional change authorizing the use of firearms by citizens against terrorists.

One of an employer's most basis goals is ensuring that it provides a safe workplace for its employees. The debate over gun control laws is a vigorous and passionate one, and the issue of gun possession rights in the workplace has become a major component of that public discussion. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, work-related homicides claimed the lives of an average of 551 workers per year from 2006 to 2010, and shootings accounted for 78 percent of all workplace homicides in 2010. Accordingly, many employers have been looking to develop specific policies addressing the possession of firearms in the workplace.
 

MD: Baltimore's Murder Rate Nearly Twice Chicago's

Baltimore tallied 318 murders in 2016. That seems far below Chicago's official police tally of 762 murders that same year. (The actual Chicago homicide count, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office, was 812, as AMI Newswire reported Tuesday.)

By adjusting for population size, it becomes clear that far more Baltimoreans are shot, stabbed or otherwise killed than residents of Chicago. Baltimore's murder rate is 51 per 100,000 residents, Chicago's is 28 per 100,000 residents. By comparison, the murder rate in New York City was 3.9 murders for every 100,000 residents in 2016.

President-elect Trump’s first big endorsement was from the NRA and now his pick to head up the U.S. Justice Department, Alabama senator Jeff Sessions, had to talk about the Second Amendment during confirmation hearings:

(Sessions) “Well, I do believe the Second Amendment is a personal right.”

Though as potentially the nation’s chief prosecutor, he agrees with laws that make use of firearms during crimes, a crime itself:

(Sessions) “I think that’s a legitimate and responsible restraint on the Second Amendment.”

Ed.: So much for Sessions being pro-2A.

President-elect Donald Trump says he will deliver a nominee for the Supreme Court as soon as possible once he takes office.

“I’ll be making the decision on who we will put up for Justice of the United States Supreme Court, a replacement for the great great Justice Scalia,” Trump said Wednesday in his first press conference as President-elect. “That will be probably within two weeks of the 20th.”

But this time it wasn't happening in some other state and it wasn't someone else's child. It was my state and my child.

Thankfully, it was a hoax. However, the feeling and belief that my daughter was a sitting target in a gun-free zone with no one to respond to a shooter is something that I'll never forget. It has changed my views as a legislator.

That's part of why I filed House Bill 6005, which would delete the ban on permit holders with concealed weapons from exercising their Second Amendment rights on college and university campuses.

Republican Sen. Don Huffines filed a package of legislation on Wednesday he argues will preserve Texans’ Second Amendment rights for future generations.

Huffines, who represents part of Dallas county, introduced bills to block future gun registration, prevent local gun bans and taxes, keep carry permit holders from catching extra charges at DUI stops, and designate the Lone Star State’s official gun to be the cannon.

“Second Amendment liberty is critical for the preservation of all of our other liberties,” said Huffines in a statement. “Wherever state government interferes with that right, or unduly burdens it, it is my duty as a state legislator to fix it.”
 

FL: Blacks should have right to bear arms in U.S.

In an article published by Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson, “The right to bear arms should extend to black men, too,” he cites the cases of black men who thought they had the same open-carry gun rights as whites but died because that was not the case.

In light of the killings in the Fort Lauderdale airport — one of the locations that Sen. Greg Steube is proposing for gun rights extension — and the racial implications of extending gun rights in a nation where rights are not always equal, we ask that Sen. Steube reconsider his efforts. They may further endanger us.

This as part of a bill filed by Senator Bart Hester of Cave Springs to create a second amendment appreciation weekend.

I remember well my first solo shift as a police officer. I was sitting in my patrol vehicle, enveloped in excitement and equipment. Sig Sauer P220 sidearm, Remington 870 shotgun, Taser, OC pepper spray, and of course, the AR-15 (M-4).

Police officers know each piece of equipment intimately through years of training. Each piece of equipment secured in its proper place. Each piece of equipment, and its use, governed by myriad laws and regulations. Each piece of equipment designed to protect us and the community. Some of the equipment is designed to take a life, if necessary.

Assemblyman Will Barclay announced that there is a new SAFE Act requirement taking effect.

Pistol permit holders are now being required to recertify every five years in order to maintain a pistol permit.

Previously, pistol permits were issued for life barring a felony conviction or mental illness.

Those with pistol and revolver licenses that were issued before January 15, 2013, must recertify by January 31, 2018.
 

FL: In ‘open carry’ Florida, more guns could mean safer citizens, advocates argue

Picture this different view of public life in Florida.

In a college lecture hall, the instructor is licensed to carry a gun and has a Glock holstered on her hip. In a public meeting at city hall, the mayor, also licensed, is carrying a sidearm. A resident — yes, licensed and openly armed — strolls into baggage claim at the airport to pick up visiting relatives.

These and other locations currently are dubbed “gun free” zones because state law prohibits concealed-carry permit-holders from carrying, and it’s that restriction that gun rights advocates say makes gun-free zones vulnerable to attack.
