‘Taken 3’ won’t succeed without gun owner patronage

"Neeson’s anti-gun sympathies are hardly surprising, this column noted when his last movie, 'A Walk Among the Tombstones' was released. The arming of Jews was omitted from 'Schindler’s List,' a movie he won an Oscar for, and as a UN 'goodwill ambassador' who rejects the founding principles of a culture he chose to join, he has reportedly been entertaining conversion to Islam. It only stands to reason he approves of French citizen disarmament laws."

Paris and another mass murder in a gun-free zone. Another incident where well-armed criminals shot at people who could only scream and watch their colleagues gunned down without mercy.

Wonder if anyone in that Paris building wished he or she had a gun to shoot back. I'm not saying that a couple of concealed weapons would have stopped well-armed terrorists, but it could have bought a little time before the police got there.

The right to bear arms could soon be a three-week mandatory part of your child's schoolwork if one state legislator has his way.

State Representative Alan Clemmons, who represents district 107, wants a stronger emphasis to be placed on the Second Amendment in schools across the state. He prefiled the Second Amendment Education Act ahead of the General Assembly returning to session this month.

Legislation proposed last month by three members of the South Carolina legislature would require public school teachers in that state to spend three weeks each year extolling the virtues of the Second Amendment — as that amendment is understood by the National Rifle Association. The bill requires all South Carolina public schools to “provide instruction in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution for at least three consecutive weeks during one grading period in each academic year.” Moreover, “the State Superintendent of Education shall adopt a curriculum developed or recommended by the National Rifle Association or its successor organization.”

State Sen. Jeff Brandes has again filed a bill that would allow Floridians to carry concealed weapons without a license during mandatory evacuations.

After a contentious debate led to the failure of a similar proposal last year, the St. Petersburg Republican filed the bill (SB 290) on Thursday that revives the issue.

It may be an exaggeration to say that some Michigan lawmakers want to arm abusers.

But not by much.

Michigan's Legislature has approved a law, ostensibly aimed at standardizing the way concealed-weapons permits are issued, that also eliminates a state provision barring individuals subject to a personal protection order from obtaining such permits.
 

Thomas Massie sets sights on inaptly-named “Gun Free School Zones”

Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) has decided to take aim one of America’s biggest public policy failures: the Gun-Free School Zones Act (GFSZA) of 1990.

...

Earlier this week, Congressman Massie introduced H.R. 86, the Safe Students Act, a bill that would repeal the GFSZA. Originally introduced by former Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) in 2007, this Act would restore much needed sanity to our nation’s gun laws by striking down this ineffective ban that has done nothing to reduce “gun violence.”

The speaker lineup for next Thursday’s “Rally for Your Rights” in Olympia has expanded to include at least four state lawmakers and representatives from gun rights and gay rights groups, and when they’re done talking, it will be up to citizens to start chatting with their individual legislators, according to a press release today.

The rally may have a bit more momentum, now that a federal lawsuit has been filed in Tacoma, challenging language in Initiative 594. The 18-page gun control measure – passed by voters in November – was opposed by a majority of county sheriffs and two major statewide law enforcement organizations.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s administration is proposing stricter rules for gun dealers – a move that is expected to be closely watched as Christie considers jumping into the 2016 GOP presidential contest.

The proposals were put forth by the state police department, and have been approved by acting state Attorney General John J. Hoffman. The rules would affect the approximately 377 licensed retail and registered wholesale gun dealers and manufacturers in the state.

State lawmakers who have concealed-carry permits would be allowed to carry guns in most places throughout the state — including into courthouses, government meetings and schools — under a bill proposed in the 2015 General Assembly.

The measure, introduced by Republican Sen. Whitney Westerfield, would add legislators to a growing list of government officials who have special privileges to carry concealed weapons with few limitations. Similar exemptions already are granted to commonwealth's attorneys, county attorneys and judges.

The Second Amendment guarantees Americans the right to bear arms, and recent data show the U.S. is putting its money where its mouth is: FBI background checks show that firearms sales have surged in the last three months.

According the FBI, background checks, the most reliable gauge of gun sales, surged from 1,803,397 in November to a record 2,309,684 in December. This is compared to the two million from December 2013.

An announcement from New Canaan Police Chief Leon Krolikowski:

The New Canaan Police Department is suspending the issuance of Temporary State Pistol Permits due to a flaw in the application process, which compromises public safety — specifically, how the process relates to mental health screening. This process is outlined in Connecticut Public Act 13-3, sections 8, 10-11; C.G.S. Sec. 29-28.

One of the 13 photographs submitted included Mitch's shotgun. He said it was the first gun that he had purchased himself, calling it his "go-to" gun for outdoor sport.

When Wehner — an employee at WFAA-TV owned by Gannett, the parent company of USA TODAY — arrived at the local Walmart store to pick up the prints, she was told the photo with the firearm would not be released.

"She was very nice, but very matter-of-fact, like she was not going to budge or give me my photo," Wehner said.

She even received a slip from the clerk that read: "MINUS ONE 5 X 7. NO WEAPONS."

The clerk at the Walmart told Wehner it was the store's "policy." Wehner was told she can't print pictures of guns.

A bill filed in Minnesota Thursday would effectively thwart virtually all federal gun control measures on the books, past, present and future.

SF28, the Second Amendment Preservation Act, was filed by Sen. Branden Peterson. If passed, it would prohibit all state and local law enforcement from enforcing or providing material support to the enforcement of “any federal act, law, order, rule or regulation that relates to a personal firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition within the limits of this state.”

Retteror expressed the need for council to pass a resolution reinforcing the U.S. and State second amendment for the right for citizens to keep and bear arms.

“I still think it is meaningful and reasonable for the village of Ada to have its own resolution to reinforce the statement of the second amendment to the United States’ Constitution and the second amendment to the constitution of Ohio, and I think we can do that,” he said. “I think there are people in the world who would take that right and many of our other rights, or maybe all of our rights from us, and just because somebody is willing to give up their right doesn’t mean that they should be able to give our rights up.”

The State of Montana is throwing its support behind a lawsuit challenging a federal ruling which might force all gun owners to disable or lockup their weapons whenever they aren't being carried.

The ruling from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a San Francisco ordinance that makes it against the law for gun owners to have weapons in their house unless they are locked, or dissembled so they can't be fired.

Attorney General Luther Strange has joined an amicus brief filed by the State of Nebraska and 25 other States asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a San Francisco ordinance which infringes upon the Second Amendment rights of gun owners who wish to protect themselves in their homes.

The brief was filed in the case of Jackson v. San Francisco in opposition to a San Francisco law requiring that guns be stored in a locked container, or with a trigger lock, at all times inside the home except when the homeowner is actually carrying the firearm. The locked-gun storage requirement ordinance was upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court.

Reverend Maupin didn’t think justice was served when the non-compliant Brison ran from the officer, and then physically fought the officer’s efforts to take him into custody.

His perspective now is just a little bit different, now that he’s had an opportunity for a “cop’s eye view” in three force-on-force training scenarios.

Oklahoma was one of several states to recently alter medical record sharing laws, which has brought forward several patient privacy issues.

The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is a database for mental health records, meant to ensure that dangerous individuals are not able to purchase firearms. Oklahoma passed a law that goes into effect on July 1, which requires court clerks to submit the records to both the FBI and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI), according to The Oklahoman.

Every day in America 86 people are killed with guns. Gun violence can happen anytime, anywhere: schools, parks, offices — even in our homes.

Inaction is no longer an option. In Nevada, we can help reduce gun violence with the Background Check Initiative, which would help keep guns out of dangerous hands while still respecting the Second Amendment. This sensible measure is supported by 86% of Nevadans and likely to appear on ballots in 2016.
