FL: At NRA's Urging, State Senate Advances 'Gang Members Protection' Act

Last week, a Florida senate committee advanced an NRA-backed bill that one critic dubbed a “gang members protection” act, since it would make it harder for the state to convict killers and others who claim self-defense. Right now, murder charges are handled the way most other criminal charges are handled. The state charges someone with murder. Then, at trial, the defendant is free to offer whatever defense he or she wants – whether it’s a claim of innocence, mental illness, self-defense or what have you.

He told jurors that protesters first approached him and his group of friends in a seemingly friendly way, and then things took a turn.

Recently legislators and special interest groups have pushed for greater availability of “smart” guns as a safety and crime-reduction tool. Then-President Barack Obama called for more research into “smart” gun technology in January 2016, and that April issued a memorandum calling for government-led research into smart guns as well as potential use by some federal agencies.

A few months back I wrote a column entitled, "Guns don't kill people. Really?" My column usually will draw between 30 and 40 responses each week, some positive and some negative. The "Guns don't kill people," column kept me answering emails through much of the next week and beyond. Beginning today, I am going to write three columns that relate to the "gun" issue of The Second Amendment of the Constitution. The others will appear over the next couple of weeks. So, stay tuned.

But weeks later, on Aug. 29, he shot himself, Kearns told the House Judiciary Committee on Monday afternoon. Nate was 33.

Sometimes we pick up an item of knowledge that opens up a deeper understanding. Such was the case for me recently when I heard Dr. Larry Arnn of Hillsdale College comment on the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights, as you recall, is the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which were added shortly after the document was approved. It is sort of a “Top Ten” list of the rights of a free people. Yet, I always wondered if there was a hierarchy within the Bill of Rights. According to Dr. Arnn, there is.

The incongruous headline on the print version of your editorial says it all: “Teacher gun bill needs amending” (emphasis added). Colorado’s concealed-carry gun permit law specifically prohibits concealed guns in all public K-12 Colorado schools with exception for the school’s designated security guard (CRS 18-12-214).

 

Back to Basics: How Semi-Automatic Firearms Work

The semi-automatic firearm is so standard now that many accept it as the way firearms have always worked. Truth is, getting a workable semi-automatic was as groundbreaking as the repeating firearm or center-fire primer. Like so many innovations, the semi-automatic firearm is older than most think, but it took a while to work out the wrinkles enough to get widespread attention. Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher, an Austrian engineer and small arms designer, is credited with the first semi-automatic firearm—a rifle—in 1885.

A little-known business of gunmaker Sturm, Ruger is suppressors. It's relatively new to that market, but it has made a lot of noise there nonetheless. Image source: Sturm, Ruger. And then there was one. Not that there was a lot of choice beforehand, but after Smith & Wesson decided to pursue the rugged outdoors market and change its corporate identity, Sturm, Ruger (NYSE: RGR) remains the only pure-play gun stock you can buy. For investors deciding whether there's still opportunity inherent in firearms, it's worthwhile to see if it makes sense to buy Ruger.

Armed home invaders knew it was a gun owner they were robbing at 2 a.m. on Jan. 26 in Mississippi. It started with a pistol whipping and escalated to five shots in his legs—perhaps to coerce him to open the gun safe. It’s an ugly reminder for all of us to be careful who discovers you’re a firearm enthusiast.

Rifles, muskets, long-bows and hand-grenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon — so long as there is no answer to it — gives claws to the weak. — George Orwell
