Responsible gun owners defend themselves, but we didn't see it in the news. Andee Reardon and Rob Morse talk about three new examples of armed defense.

First story- You meet in a parking lot to sell your cell phone. Two men walk up to your car and point a gun at you.
Second story- You step off the street towards your house. A man approaches you. He has a gun and demands your wallet.
Third story- It is closing time when a man walks into your shop. He points a gun at you and the other customers. You step behind the cash register..and you're armed.

What would you do in these situations? Text and podcast available at the link. (17 minute audio podcast)

Another bill calls for enhanced background checks when purchasing assault weapons and large capacity magazines. Supporters want to raise the purchase age to 21 years old, require safety training and an annual background check renewal. One of those supporters is the Snohomish County deputy prosecutor who handled the 2016 Mukilteo shooting. He is a seasoned prosecutor but Adam Cornell says that day was different, “I've had a lot of bad days with victims and families but the worst day of my career was the day I was called out to the Mukilteo shooting.”

The Denver City Council voted to support a proposed ban on controversial bump stocks, the device that can increase the speed in which a gun can be fired. That happened at a special meeting Tuesday night. The Las Vegas shooter used a bump stock on at least one of his weapons during the rampage that killed nearly 60 people in October, allowing him to fire as many as 90 rounds in 10 seconds.

With nearly 1,000 people on both sides of the gun rights issue listening, Second Amendment advocates, including some retired law enforcement professionals, told a Washington State Senate panel that proposed gun control measures in that state will do nothing to prevent crimes, but only penalize law-abiding citizens.

The Senate Law and Justice committee held hearings on six pieces of legislation ranging from a ban on so-called “bump stocks” and original capacity ammunition magazines to one that would undo the state’s 35-year-old preemption statute. The session covered Senate Bills 5444, 5463,5992, 6049 and 6146.

The superintendent did not release the name of the alleged 21-year-old gunman because he has not been charged with a crime.

Here’s a thing that happens often enough that it’s become a meme, a trope, a truism. Walk into any gun store and listen to the conversation around the handgun counter (or, alternatively, belly up to your favorite online forum) and within a surprisingly short amount of time you will hear someone suggest something that gets belittled by the regulars. More importantly, it will be belittled in a rather specific way, like so.
 

Mitch McConnell Ignores National Reciprocity for 45th Consecutive Week

We are mid-way through January 2018 which means Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has ignored national reciprocity for 45 consecutive weeks. National reciprocity for concealed carry was introduced in the Senate on March 1, 2017 and McConnell has yet to say a word in support of it. His silence is ironic, given the fact that he cloaked himself in the Second Amendment in order to sway pro-gun Kentuckians into re-electing him in 2014.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. — Alexis de Tocqueville
