"Rusten’s agreement to comply with the document request marks an incremental victory for the gun rights group, which enjoyed another concession when the Burlington Council agreed to remove a ban on what it calls 'assault weapons and high capacity magazines' from its proposed citizen disarmament measure."

FL: Self-Defense Law: Stand on Common Ground

Among other proposals, the bill would:

Prohibit people who are aggressors in confrontations from claiming Stand Your Ground immunity.

Require sheriffs and city police departments to set guidelines for neighborhood-watch programs, and limit members to observing and reporting suspected crimes.

Specify that law enforcement must conduct a full investigation in shootings even if the Stand Your Ground Law is claimed as a defense.

The bill would leave in place the bulk of the 2005 law that allows people to use deadly force if they feel threatened.
 

CA: Orange County's Gun Limits Dissected in 9th

Concerns that a limitation on concealed-carry permits in Orange County, Calif., amounts to an all-out ban did not seem to resonate with the 9th Circuit.
A three-judge panel with the federal appeals court met this week to consider a 2012 lawsuit challenging Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchen's policy of "denying law-abiding, competent adults ... state-required licenses to carry handguns in public for the purpose of self-defense." The policy requires gun owners to prove to the sheriff that they have a valid reason to carry their gun for self defense.
 

Emily Miller talks ‘assault rifles’ with MSNBC, says they’re just like ‘hunting rifles’

Miller said there was no functional difference between “assault weapons” and hunting rifles, reasoning that since most versions are semi-automatic, the only separation is their styling.

“The AR-15s and the ‘military assault weapons’ and these ‘military style’ ones that everyone’s scared of… they are 100 percent not nay [sic] functionally different than a hinting rifle,” Miller said. “Nothing. They just look like military rifles.”

Two children were outside on a public street in San Bernardino, Calif. when a pit bull attacked them.

As the children tried to escape from the dog, the children’s aunt picked up a toy scooter and attempted to use it to fight the dog off. A neighbor noticed the attack, retrieved a gun, and shot and killed the dog.

In an attempt to use the Sandy Hook massacre to promote its anti-gun control agenda, a Seattle-area group has announced plans to observe "Guns Save Lives Day" on the anniversary of the Connecticut mass shooting.

Supporters of the event say they'll use the Dec. 14 anniversary of the deaths of 26 people – including 20 children – at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school to protest what they see as unfair attacks on gun ownership.

Gun-rights advocates are ready to launch a recall attempt aimed at some of California's most vulnerable Democratic state lawmakers - and the party's supermajority hold on the Legislature - if Gov. Jerry Brown signs some of the dozen-plus gun-control bills sitting on his desk.

They're emboldened by the successful recalls last month of two Colorado Democratic legislators who supported gun restrictions, including the leader of the state Senate. Voters replaced both with Republicans.

But whether a Legislature dominated by gun-loving lawmakers will ultimately sign off on a bipartisan compromise remains a long shot, despite a seemingly indifferent National Rifle Association, which helped write Florida’s first-in-the-nation law.

The law’s 2005 sponsor, Sen. David Simmons, defended the current law while conceding it could be better.

The weapon he was carrying, an AK-74 assault rifle, measures three feet long, with a barrel of about 16 inches, and is capable of firing several dozen rounds per minute. Brian McCauley says he never meant to scare anyone. The state of Texas disagrees, and his upcoming trial has become a focal point in a dangerous new battle in the national debate over gun laws.

So far, the group has one stated goal: "to get a Constitutional Amendment for 'firearm freedom' on the Florida statewide ballot for the 2014 election."

According to its petition, the amendment will affirm "the natural and unalienable right
of all Floridians to 'keep and bear arms' without interference from the federal government, as specified by the 'shall not infringe' clause of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which is an absolute denial of authority to the federal government to encroach upon, violate, impede, restrict, regulate, control, or otherwise diminish this fundamental right."

A time for mourning — the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre — is developing into a call to arms for the gun owners.

The Second Amendment Foundation announced Thursday that it is proclaiming Dec. 14 as Guns Saves Lives Day and is planning events in all 50 states to counteract what it characterized as anti-gun propaganda that exploits the tragedy.

“Our intent is not to allow our opponents to try to own that day,” Alan Gottlieb, the group’s president, told Hearst Connecticut Newspapers Thursday. “We assumed that they would try to use that date to try to push their gun prohibition agenda.”

The Second Amendment Foundation, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and DefendGunRights.com announced today they will join together with other groups to sponsor Guns Save Lives Day on Dec. 14, the anniversary of the tragic Newtown, Conn., shootings "because crazy people, criminals and gun control extremists prefer unarmed victims."

"We are proclaiming Saturday, Dec. 14 as Guns Save Lives Day," said Alan Gottlieb, president of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee. "In the coming weeks, you can go to GunsSaveLivesDay.com and get updates on this open source national project that all freedom loving organizations are invited to be a part of."

A hearing for a Pennsylvania police chief who made profanity-laced Internet videos about liberals and the Second Amendment was halted suddenly Thursday night after a handgun belonging to one of his supporters slid out of its holster and crashed onto the concrete floor.

The loaded semi-automatic handgun landed inches away from Gilberton Chief Mark Kessler and his attorney. It did not go off, but attorney Joseph Nahas said that he and other officials were concerned about the safety of everyone in the tiny, crowded meeting room at borough hall.

On October 8th 2013, the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC) and its Executive Director Scott Bach filed suit against the New Hampshire Department of Safety over an illegal rule reversal that prevents Garden-State residents and others from qualifying for New Hampshire non-resident carry licenses.

The change requires applicants to have a carry license from their home state in order to qualify for the New Hampshire non-resident license.
 

OH: A proposed ‘stand your ground’ law in Ohio is an invitation to violence and vigilantism

Some Ohio lawmakers want to modify the state’s concealed-weapons law by vastly expanding the circumstances in which a person has no duty to retreat before using lethal force in self-defense. Such a “stand your ground” law is unnecessary. Worse, it would increase the danger of gun violence — something this state and its cities hardly need.
 

VA: We can’t stop the madmen from killing unless we can protect ourselves

In response to Lee Barry’s letter, “Navy Yard proves need for more gun control,” I have my own opinion. There were 12 innocent people needlessly killed by a madman at the Navy Yard, people with families who loved them.

There was a background check on the madman. There is proof that there were flaws in the background check. Had the Navy done its job, he would not have slipped through the cracks.

Seems to me we must do a better job with these checks.

Speaking with Seattle Weekly, Sinderman questions whether the initiative campaign, which is being orchestrated by Gottlieb’s Citizen’s Committee, is still going. “We haven’t seen their signature gatherers anywhere in the last few weeks,” he says.

“They haven’t been looking very hard,” counters Dave Workman, editor of The Gun Mag, affiliated with the Second Amendment Foundation. “I talked to one guy who called me from Cle Elum who was collecting signatures by the bushel.”

Gottlieb told the The Spokesman-Review that his campaign is on track to turn in signatures by December.

Yet, financially too, his side is behind. I-591 has raised a little under $600,000, while its gun control counterpart boasts a war chest of more than $1 million.

If you have driven, jogged, walked, run or just looked out a window in the north country over the past few months, chances are you have seen a white sign emblazoned with a red circle over the bold words NY SAFE ACT.

The signs, which denounce the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, began popping up in late spring and have made their way across Northern New York and been spotted as far south as Long Island.

Nearly 7,000 of them have been distributed to date, according to the man behind the movement.

The tyrants and dictators at the United Nations will stop at nothing to register, ban and, eventually, confiscate firearms owned by law-abiding Americans like you and me.

The U.N. has been working for nearly 15 years to force its gun banning Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on the United States.

Now, thanks to President Barack Obama, they are closer than ever.

We're hoping it's not too late to encourage Gov. Jerry Brown to use his nose and decide to veto a bill outlawing use of lead ammunition by California hunters.

Assembly Bill 711 would require the use of non-lead ammunition for hunting of all animals in California and is awaiting a signature or veto from Brown, up against Sunday deadline. We're hoping Gov. Brown detects the smell of silliness.

By this Sunday, October 13 2013, Governor Jerry Brown must decide whether to sign or veto several onerous anti-gun bills and one egregious anti-hunting bill.

Although many in the media often grossly underreport the amount of opposition to these misguided bills, Governor Brown needs to understand that California has millions of law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters as residents and voters.

It is CRITICAL that every law-abiding citizen call AND e-mail Governor Brown DAILY through Sunday respectfully urging him to stand up for our constitutional rights.

The problem is according to DC law it was illegal for anyone, including lawmakers to possess such weapons. Newly released information by the Washington Post reveals that Lanier not only ignored Feinstein’s breaking of the law, but actively worked at getting her the weapons.

The information came in response to a Freedom of Information Act request that revealed Chief Lanier’s shocking willingness to bend the rules for obvious partisan and ideological purposes.
