At Monday night's township commissioners meeting, Lehigh Valley Tea Party's Second Amendment Committee member Glenn Krier essentially put the commissioners on notice that the current law prohibiting firearms in the township's 10 parks is illegal and needs to be changed.

Deputy Minority Leader Joel Kretz, R-Wauconda, said the rules have been clarified to make clear that openly carried guns are among items that are banned as objects of demonstration. Last Thursday, he said, some gun-rights advocates brought loaded firearms into the gallery. One had a chambered round and ejected it onto the gallery floor.

“All the rules of gun safety were violated,” Kretz said. “It's too bad, because I don't think they represented your average gun owners.”

The firearms world is focused on the annual Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show, which opens Tuesday in Las Vegas, but not so much that it is entirely overlooking today’s decision by the Washington State House of Representatives to ban the open carry of firearms in its visitor’s gallery.

That decision follows the Senate ban announced Friday. The incident that ignited this controversy happened Thursday as about 15 open carry activists trooped into the House viewing area, following a morning “Rally for Your Rights” on the Capitol steps. It has created division in the firearms community, including the open carry movement.

To protect its Second Amendment rights, a handgun manufacturer is blasting Liam Neeson for exercising his First Amendment rights. “There’s too many f*cking guns out there,” the actor said recently. “I think the (US) population is like 320 million. There’s over 300 million guns privately owned in America. I think it’s a f*cking disgrace.”

In response, North Carolina-based PARA USA — which supplied guns Neeson’s hit film Taken 3 but now “regrets its decision” — is calling on the firearms industry not to provide guns to his movies.

Blaming a rally by a group of legally armed Second Amendment advocates at the state Capitol in Olympia Thursday, Washington’s Lt. Governor ruled Friday that guns are now banned from the chamber.

The rally of some 200 gun rights activists on the steps of the Capitol building Jan. 15, was a continuation of the vocal opposition to the state’s background check ballot referendum, I-594, passed by voters last November. However, when the protest spilled over into the public gallery, there was an altercation between an open carrier and a state police lieutenant that ended with threats of removal and arrest.

Following passage of a popular ballot referendum that reduced many crimes in California last November to misdemeanors, a state lawmaker introduced legislation to make the theft of guns under $950 in value a felony.

This comes just months after Proposition 47 passed in a 17-point margin. Designed to reduce penalties for non-violent offenders such as drug possession and property crimes, it was intended to save taxpayer dollars spent in incarceration. The crimes transitioned from felonies to misdemeanors include commercial burglary, possession of stolen property or vehicle theft if under $950 in value, possession of illegal drugs and theft of most firearms. It is this last point that is now the target of a measure by a California lawmaker.

The film “American Sniper,” a tribute to slain Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, got off to a riveting start this long holiday weekend with earnings north of $100 million. The enormous support shown by Americans is lost on gun control activists like filmmaker Michael Moore, who tweeted his unsolicited opinion of the film [original wording]: “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse.”

We're from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and we're not here to confiscate your weapons.

To the above statement, many gun owners no doubt are muttering, "Yeah, right." And worse.

Their doubts and cynicism are understandable. After all, for decades the NRA and other gun interests have fed them the fiction that adopting any gun regulation, no matter how modest or worthwhile, will start a slide to the bottom of that imaginary slippery slope where manufacture, sale and possession of all firearms is banned.

A bill that would allow some people to legally possess sawed-off shotguns seems likely to advance in the coming weeks, though Indiana lawmakers aren't expected to take up separate proposals to significantly relax the state's gun laws.

Bills filed in the General Assembly include proposals to repeal the state's handgun licensing law and to prohibit state universities from banning guns on their campuses.
