"First, read the 21 questions. Ask yourself, were this your case against the government, if you’d want them answered. Then be a force multiplier and help spread the word -- something even now most major media with a few notable exceptions has avoided doing -- just like with Fast and Furious. That means if the word is to get out, it’s up to people who care to bypass a resistant 'legitimate news media.'”

CA: Does Marin Prosecutor Beberian have an Unhealthy Obsession with Guns?

More evidence has surfaced that California’s Marin County Prosecutor, Ed Berberian, has a bias, perhaps even an obsession, against gun owners and self defense. Six months ago Dr. James Simon defended himself and his wife of 38 years from an aggressive driver who followed him to his home, drove his Mercedes part way into the Simon’s garage to prevent the door from closing, and persisted in invading the home after two warning shots were fired. Doctor Simon shot the man and called the police.

Despite the superiority of the Master being reaffirmed in SOLAS, by flag states, and even in many industry contracts between PCASP and shipowners/operators, many security providers affirm that in certain grave life-or-death situations, they would disobey a Master’s call to stand down under their individual right to self-defense should they believe their life or the life of crew-members to be in danger.
 

FL: A key early test of Florida’s self-defense law finally ends with guilty plea

A man whose self-defense claim in a Miami Beach murder case helped sharpen Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law pleaded guilty Friday to manslaughter.

...

Florida’s 2005 controversial Stand Your Ground law allowed “immunity” for someone deemed to have used deadly force in self-defense. But the vague law was unclear as to whether a judge or a jury should be the one to declare immunity.

A Miami-Dade judge ruled that jurors should be the ones to bestow immunity. But higher Florida courts decided otherwise, saying the task should lie with judges.

The news of teachers undergoing basic arms training for self-defense against the looming terrorist attack has evoked mixed emotions across Pakistan.
People are unanimously saluting the bravery of those who have decided to return to school to teach at the risk of their own lives but many are skeptical about arming teachers and expecting them to effectively defend themselves and their students in case of a terrorist attack.

A man is facing charges following a domestic dispute earlier this month which resulted in his ex-girlfriend shooting him in the chest inside her Mounds View, Minnesota, home.

The victim told authorities that Daniel Carlson had previously rented a room in her basement, but the two developed a romantic relationship while he was staying there. However, she attempted to end the relationship with Carlson earlier this month, asked him to move out of her home and took his house key.
 

MO: Lawmakers from Missouri, Kansas, to discuss measure to reduce gun violence in both states

State lawmakers from Missouri and Kansas are pushing similar bills that would restrict firearms for people with domestic violence or stalking restraining orders or convictions, but a pair of Missouri state representatives called the legislation a publicity stunt with no chance of passage.

"We would never look at anything like this," said Rick Brattin, a Harrisonville, Missouri, Republican. "We're not in favor of domestic violence, but with our (concealed carry) permits, someone may not like the fact that you're carrying a weapon and say they feel they're being threatened."

One measure which had been almost certain to pass in the very conservative and very pro Second Amendment Texas Legislature was the so called 'Campus Carry' bill, which would allow students to carry legally licensed concealed weapons onto college campuses and into dormitories.

But the new Chancellor of the University of Texas system has suddenly made the future of 'Campus Carry' a lot more uncertain.

Auden C. Grogins, a Democrat who represented Bridgeport in the General Assembly for six years, was nominated by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
 

Bloomberg Banking On The ‘Stupidity’ Of Gun Owners

Now, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the gun-ban crowd are hoping a “lack of transparency” combined with the “stupidity” of the American gun owner, will help them pass so-called ”universal background checks” in states around the nation.

Obama, Bloomberg, and the national gun-ban media frequently exploit tragedy, using fear and lies to sell their agenda to non-gun owners, especially when it comes to election season. This is their traditional playbook. They target folks who have very little understanding of the Second Amendment, and who have never been exposed to firearms or our hunting and shooting traditions, in their quest to raise money and win votes.

A new bill recently introduced in the Texas Senate could allow the concealed carry of handguns on college campuses.

Senate Bill 11 would allow students with a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) to carry a handgun on campus -- public, private or independent -- or land owned or leased by the campus, if concealed.

The bill was authored by 19 of the 33 senators, including District 2 Senator Bob Hall.

There is a serious Second Amendment issue happening here in the Garden state, more specifically in Rudolph, New Jersey!

24-year-old Steffan Josie-Davis is from Jersey and was an armed security guard in 2013. The company he worked for supplied him with a 9 millimeter Smith & Wesson handgun but unfortunately was arrested even though he legally owned the gun.

The day Josie-Davis was arrested, he was running late for work and his 6-year-old sister came outside. He didn't want her to see the gun so he quickly put it in his glove-box.
 

WA: State needs well-aimed gun protection-order bill

Gun restrictions tend to fail – or run afoul of the Constitution – when they indiscriminately target good guys along with bad guys. Good regulations zero in on irresponsible and dangerous people, not the vast majority of gun-owners who don’t threaten others.

State Rep. Laurie Jinkins, D-Tacoma, has just filed a well-aimed bill. It would let police officers and fearful family members seek “extreme risk protection orders” to disarm angry or unbalanced individuals who could be on the verge of explosion.

Pistol-packing Texans are furious over what they perceive to be wavering support from Republican state legislators over enacting a law to allow open carry of handguns in the Lone Star state.

When Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick, who voiced strong support for Second Amendment rights in his campaign, commented at a Texas Tribune event Tuesday that he did not believe open carry legislation could attract enough votes to pass "at this point," pro-gun activists went ballistic and started howling for Patrick's scalp, The Guardian reports.

House Republicans on Thursday continued to scrap legislation aimed at regulating or restricting the rights of gun owners in Virginia.

After lengthy, tearful testimony from victims of domestic gun violence and passionate rebuttals by Second Amendment advocates, a subcommittee of the House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety defeated a proposal designed to protect victims of domestic abuse from gun violence by keeping guns out of the hands of violent offenders.

And he still protected his friend because you don't snitch. Even when you're bleeding from your groin and might die. "Nah, it was an accident man! You go home! I got this!'

WINK News reports that a teenager who shall remain forever nameless was rushed to the hospital last week when he and his friend made a terrible mistake while playing with a gun. Probably doing really cool secret agent moves while messing around with the loaded weapon, the Bert Macklin and Michael Scarn hopefuls got a crash course in gun safety when the weapon fired, leaving one of the Collier County teens hurt badly in the dick.
 

DC: Washington D.C. approves just eight concealed carry permits

This week, under orders from a federal judge, the first concealed carry permits in the District of Columbia in 83 years were given out, and the numbers are underwhelming.

The handful of permits are an effort to appease a federal court order that mandated the nation’s capital strike down its long-standing ban on carrying guns outside the home. That case, Palmer v D.C., was decided last July by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick J. Scullin, who allowed the city until Oct. 22, 2014, before his judgment went into effect. The legislative response to Scullin’s order was a harsh “may-issue” set of regulations that are termed by many to be among the most restrictive concealed carry laws in the nation.

...“They wanted some of the protections of this legislation to end at the county line. Well, the county line in Pinellas County is sometimes in the middle of a bridge. So, to say, well, you can take it up to this imaginary county line. And, then, beyond that you can be convicted of a felony, and all you’re trying to do is flee an evacuation. I think people have enough to be concerned about. It’s not about just being a declared emergency. You have to be under a mandatory evacuation. You know, if someone is saying, ‘grab your dogs, grab your kids, get in the car, and go, flee for your life…that this bill would even kick in and you’d be protected under this legislation. So, it’s an incredibly rare circumstance that this would be allowing.”

Like some of his colleagues in the Texas Legislature, Rep. Drew Springer has filed legislation that would allow the more than 800,000 Texans with concealed handgun licenses carry their firearms in full view.

“Everybody will have to have a license,” Springer, R-Muenster, said after filing House Bill 308, a proposal that would allow CHL holders to carry their weapons almost everywhere — even in hospitals and public colleges and universities.

But Rep. Jonathan Stickland, author of House Bill 195, a measure that would also allow lawful gun owners carry their weapons in public, said a CHL shouldn’t be an open carry requirement.

In legislative and gun rights speak, his proposal is commonly known as “constitutional carry.”
 

CT: NRA fails to block judicial nomination of ‘anti-gunner’

The Connecticut legislature Friday ignored an NRA campaign to block the judicial nomination of a former legislator who co-sponsored the post-Newtown gun control law, voting overwhelmingly to confirm Auden C. Grogins of Bridgeport as a judge of the Superior Court.

The vote was 125 to 18 in the House and 30 to 4 in the Senate.

Only one senator and no representatives spoke against the confirmation of Grogins, a Democrat who voted as a House member in 2013 to expand firearms background checks and ban the retail sale of large-capacity magazines and military-style weapons in response to the shooting deaths of 26 children and staff in Newtown.

Allen County Sheriff Sam Crish is predicting a spike this year in people obtaining their concealed carry license.

His reason: The required hours in classroom will fall from 12 to eight on March 19.

“I think people will see that and say I will go do the eight,” Crish said.

The sheriff said it usually takes an event or a presidential election to spike the numbers.

Once again the “I am more tolerant than you” and “open minded” bullies at CSGV ( The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence) have publicly revealed they are anything but tolerant or open minded.

They just launched on online smear campaign on their Facebook page urging their followers to contact WTTG General Manager Patrick Paolini and insist that he fire investigative journalist Emily Miller over her appearance and speech (see video below) at a recent Virginia Citizens Defense League rally and lobbying effort in Richmond VA a week ago.

The event was hosted by Washington CeaseFire and the Washington Technology Industry Association. Leading panelists included Ralph Fascitelli of Washington CeaseFire, Michael Schutzler of the WTIA, Margot Hirsch of the Smart Tech Challenges Foundation and Juliet Leftwich of the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. The event featured a keynote address by New Jersey Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D), champion of the New Jersey Childproof Handgun Law, a smart gun mandate.

Missing from the panelists were any gun rights representatives, a tricky feat to accomplish at a symposium just a 15 minute drive from the Second Amendment Foundation and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
