We have good news from the Windy City. Emperor Rahm will end his reign as mayor and the number of murders in Chicago was lower this year than last. Given its long history of violence, do Democrat voters even care any longer?
 

NH: Democrats suppress constitutional principles

On Jan. 2, in the first session of the 400-member New Hampshire House of Representatives, the newly elected Democratic majority voted to disarm the Republican minority, essentially deeming that that minority was a danger to the peace and safety of the institution. The vote illustrated the stark nature of the current political divide in both New Hampshire, and the nation.

The vote also demonstrated Democrats’ willingness to suppress constitutional principles, in this case the right of self-defense, when constitutional principles get in the way of Democrats exercising power. And it illustrated to anyone concerned for the defense of our inalienable rights that evil has arrived in the State House with a vengeance.

The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Terrance Williams of Bluefield, attempted to shoot one individual inside the home.

"He had a graze mark on his neck from the bullet," Adams said.

Williams then reportedly chased the individuals out of the home, still attempting to shoot them. However, one person decided enough was enough.

"One of the individuals that he was trying to shoot had a gun on his person," Adams said. "He fired a couple rounds back in his self-defense and ended up striking that individual."
 

WA: Washington Redefines All Semi-Automatic Rifles As 'Assault Weapons'

As of Tuesday, adults younger than 21 are no longer allowed to buy semi-automatic rifles in Washington, thanks to a ballot initiative approved by 59 percent of that state's voters last November. The initiative, I-1639, officially targets "semiautomatic assault rifles," but its definition of that term is so broad that it renders the assault part superfluous, except for tendentious rhetorical purposes.

Recently they have introduced some common caliber brass casings. I requested and received some 22-250, 10mm, and 45 auto cases for testing. The market is completive with several established companies that produce good quality cases at reasonable prices.
 

The Power of Black Powder Revolvers: Black Powder vs. Substitutes

Percussion revolvers occupy a gray area in firearms development first appearing with the Colt Paterson in 1835 and in this awkward first step, reliable, repeating firearms suddenly became a reality after hundreds of years of frustrated design work. But only forty years later, percussion revolvers loaded with loose black powder, bullet, and percussion cap much like the muzzleloaders they replaces were themselves superseded by practical cartridge handguns. In that brief span of time, percussion aka cap and ball revolvers entered our imagination.
 

The Supreme Court Is Too Gun-Shy On The Second Amendment

It’s high time for the court to begin making sense of Second Amendment law. That doesn’t mean making a sweeping judgment on “assault weapons,” concealed carry, or anything else, but equipping the lower courts with the tools they need to decide cases consistently. The high court said in Heller that laws implicating the Second Amendment must be subject to heightened judicial scrutiny—as opposed to the “rational basis” standard under which the government usually wins. But some circuits have disregarded even that simple directive. The Second Circuit has determined that “marginal, incremental, or even appreciable restraints on the right to keep and bear arms” necessitate no heightened scrutiny…

FL: Background checks on private gun sales makes sense

Gun owners may complain it’s an unacceptable infringement on Second Amendment rights, but a proposal in the state Legislature that would mandate background checks on private gun sales simply makes sense.

The bill, from Democratic state Rep. Martha Good, of Sarasota, would require most private gun sales to be done in conjunction with a licensed firearms dealers, who would conduct background checks as if the gun were being purchased from a licensed shop. If a buyer fails the background check, the sale wouldn’t be allowed.

A new compact pistol concept could give gun owners a palm-sized piece of mind.

Designer Prokop Strnka's "Kevin Self-Defense Handgun" is essentially a modernized version of Magnum Research's Micro Desert Eagle (ME380), a .38 caliber sub-compact pistol based off the Czech-manufactured Kevin ZP98.

Times are always changing, and that certainly applies to the gun world. A current trend that we are seeing now is a resurgence of the 9mm at the expense of the .40 S&W.

For instance, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently switched from the .40 S&W to the 9mm Luger, specifically switching from the Glock 22 and 23 to the Glock 17 and 19. The United States military very strongly considered switching to .40, but ultimately stuck with the 9mm when they selected the SIG Sauer M17 as their new service weapon. And police departments all across the country are trading in their .40 caliber pistols for 9mm.
 

MN: Black women caught in the crossfire of Minneapolis gun violence

Ayolanda Evans heard a rush of loud, sharp pops cut across her north Minneapolis neighborhood a few weeks ago. It was 8 a.m. on a Saturday.

She bolted from her bed and ran downstairs to find her 8-year-old son, who thought it was just fireworks. Evans, 38, who works for the anti-gun violence group Protect Minnesota, knew better.

"I hear, 'Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!'" she recalled of the gunshots. "It sounded like right in front of the house."

Hoping to insulate her son a little longer from the fear of gun violence, Evans didn't want to tell him that several bullets had struck a car on the street outside.
 

Don't trample on the Second Amendment

Florida increased the minimum age for buying a gun after the horrific shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The accused shooter, Nikolas Cruz, had a history of hurting small animals, threatening people, swearing at teachers and posting school shooting plans on social media.

Does anyone really think that immaturity is to blame for his actions? That making him wait another two years to buy a weapon would have resulted in an entirely different outcome? That, given just a little more time, he would have realized it’s wrong to kill people?
 

Trump Forgets His Pledge to Support Second Amendment; Capitulating to Antigun Crowd

When Trump called for a ban on “Bump Stocks,” he ignored his pledge to support the Second Amendment; capitulating completely to the antigun crowd.

As if the Republican controlled Senate’s failure to enact national concealed handgun carry reciprocity legislation and President Trump’s failure to push forward a pro-Second Amendment agenda during his first two years in Office weren’t bad enough—a serious failure of omission on the part of both the U.S. Senate and the President—Trump’s ban on“bump stocks”—an act of commission—is even worse.

New Hampshire's House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to ban firearms in the state House chamber and to require all lawmakers to undergo sexual harassment training, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.

The moves were two of the first actions taken by the House's new Democratic majority, according to the newspaper.

The House voted 220-163 to approve the firearms ban. The ban has existed under past Democratic majorities but was changed in 2011 and again in 2015 by Republicans, according to the newspaper.

Wichita police investigated 44 homicides in 2018 and 38 in 2017. Police Chief Gordon Ramsay says two of those homicides in 2017 were justifiable and eight of them were justifiable in 2018.

He says it's in part to changed gun laws.

"The fact is that more people are carrying guns, you know, as in last week's incident at the gas station," said Chief Ramsay.

On Friday, Dec. 28, an armed customer shot and killed a 16-year-old when he and three other people tried to rob B & H Fast Trip on south Seneca.

Officers say the man pulled a gun at the photo counter claiming that the store had his photos for a year.

The employee shot the man. He did have a concealed carry license.

A spokesperson for Walgreens says the clerk is no longer with the company.
 

TX: Houston teen allegedly pulls gun, fatally shoots another in game of 'No Lacking'

A Houston teenager is accused of shooting dead a fellow teen as part of a weapons-drawing prank that has been spreading on social media, authorities said Thursday.

Mohamad Nour Alajil, 18, has been charged with manslaughter in connection to the Dec. 11 slaying of Christian Johnson, 19, officials said.

Police believe Johnson's death resulted from the "No Lackin'" challenge, which calls for one person to pull a weapon on another on video to record the reaction, KPRC reported. The challenge stems from the notion that no one should ever be caught without, or "lacking," a gun.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero (42B.C)
