The Real and Imaginary Dangers of Firearms Training

The most dangerous thing about guns is….
…I could make a mistake in a self-defense class.
…I might look clumsy or unsafe and embarrass myself.
…I could accidentally wound my pride.

Most gun owners have never taken a concealed carry course, so the feeling might be new to you. If we did get our carry permit, then most of us stopped there. We like to shoot, but our fear of embarrassment keeps us from taking the next step.. from getting training.

Our fear also leaves our family at risk. When we step back and look at it, we would rather fail on the street in a self-defense encounter than submit to correction in a firearms class.

Our fear of embarrassment is unfounded. We made it up.
 

MI: Detroit CPL holder unloads on armed robber caught on video

An attempted robbery in Detroit didn't go as planned for the suspect, when the intended victim pulled out a gun and started shooting in defense.

A Concealed Pistol License holder acted quickly, pulled his gun and shot the armed suspect to end the threat.

Cynthia Quinn rushed to Henry Ford Hospital when she heard her son Sanchez Quinn had been shot. She called FOX 2 upset because she didn't know why she was not allowed to see her wounded son.

"When I went to my son's room I was stopped by two police officers (who) told me to get out of my son's room," she says. "'Why you here? You can't be here.'"

Now we know why.

It turns out, although he was shot multiple times, the 29-year-old was not the victim.
 

MI: Michigan State Police gun range may be cause of stray bullets hitting Northville Twp. homes

An investigation is underway after several homes in a Northville Township neighborhood were hit by stray bullets and the shots may have come from a Michigan State Police gun range.

Michigan State Police have a gun range behind a forensic laboratory on Seven Mile Road, between Haggerty and Northville roads.

Last year, two homes were hit by stray bullets. The gun range was shut down and modifications were made to ensure the neighborhoods safety.

Now, another home was hit by a bullet.

A resident on Crestview Circle came home to find his front door shattered and a bullet on the ground.

The Northville Township Police Department investigated and passed the recovered bullet on to MSP to see if it is one their rounds.

 

MI: Court should dismiss foster parent gun rights lawsuit, state says

A federal court should dismiss a lawsuit brought by potential Michigan foster parents because they are not foster parents, have no standing and haven't presented a ripe case, state attorneys argued in a filing last week.

"Plaintiffs have not shown an injury that is concrete or particularized, or even actual or imminent," reads the state's filing in the U.S. District Court Western District of Michigan.

William Johnson, Jill Johnson, Brian Mason, Naomi Mason and the Second Amendment Foundation Inc. Filed a lawsuit against Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Director Nick Lyon in July, arguing their gun rights were being limited by the foster care system.

 

MA: Gun Control Bill on the Move

Offered by state Representative David Linsky (D-5th Middlesex), Amendment 1 bans “any device which attaches to a [firearm]… that is designed to increase the rate of discharge” or the modification of any firearm “with the intent to increase its rate of discharge.” This broad language could be easily interpreted to ban match grade triggers, ergonomic enhancements, recoil reducing weights, muzzle brakes, and other modifications that countless law-abiding gun owners utilize in order to make their firearms more user friendly and suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, and even adapting to physical disability.
 

WA: Gun ownership fine, but stockpiling should be flagged

Once again, we have a mass shooting where the shooter is reported to have amassed many firearms and ammunition.

I have some sympathy towards law-abiding firearms owners. You should have weapons for self defense, hunting and sports if you wish. But why would you need to stockpile this many weapons? There should be some way to flag people who do this.

The U.S. 9th Circuit on Tuesday upheld an Alameda County law barring gun stores within 500 feet of residential properties in a blow to gun rights advocates.

The ruling came from a 9-2 en banc panel of the court in a case brought by gun dealers and Second Amendment groups who contended the county’s zoning effectively put it off limits to new gun stores. The court held that local governments could regulate the sale of firearms so long as would-be buyers were still able to purchase them somewhere in the area and that the Second Amendment does not protect the ability to engage in gun sales.
 

Calls Growing for NRA Board to Repudiate Bump Stock Statement
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

By stating that NRA believes the devices “should be subject to additional regulations,” they are not only abandoning bump-fire stocks and trigger-cranks – which is a pretty stupid move in our opinion – but they are conceding the notion that these devices, and full-auto firearms, are too dangerous for average Americans to own. LaPierre and Cox have since doubled down on the statement, saying on Sunday talk shows that

NRA supports the restrictions of the NFA, and thinks that rapid-fire devices should fall under the purview of that law.

This is really troubling, as it abandons the critical, core principle that you cannot control criminal behavior by regulating inanimate objects.

Safety is one of the most considered aspects of day to day living. It is always better to be safe than sorry. In ensuring that you are safe, it is recommended that you should learn how to use any kind of an item for the purpose of self defense. There has been a notion that you need to learn martial arts in order to enhance your self-defense techniques.
 

Gun Industry Immunity Again Tested with Las Vegas Shooting Lawsuit

Starting with a lawsuit filed late last week in Nevada state court, the effort follows similar litigation over mass killings, most notably those of 20 elementary school children and six adults in Newtown, Conn. In most cases, the plaintiffs fail to overcome the law’s high bar for liability, but with the Harvest 91 Festival, where almost 60 died and more than 500 were injured, that pattern may shift.
 

IL: Gun control debate continues in Illinois after Las Vegas shooting

Democrats and some Republicans have set their sights on bump stocks--the devices that enable semi-automatic weapons to fire rapidly in a way similar to an automatic weapon.

Twelve bump stocks were recovered in the Las Vegas gunman’s hotel room.

Bump stocks are legal but automatic weapons are banned. Lawmakers want to know why devices that convert guns into automatic weapons are on the market.

“We are still trying to asses why the ATF let this go in the first place. It makes sense that this is a regulation that probably shouldn’t have happened in the first place,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said.

Ed.: This is what happens when the NRA betrays gun owners.

At the time of the attack in Las Vegas, Republicans in Congress were getting ready to pass a bill legalizing the purchase of gun silencers. Really! In addition, Collins has introduced a bill that would in effect repeal the SAFE Act and prevent the possibility of a similar law being enacted in any other state. Each of these legislative actions is being proposed in the name of Americans’ right to self-defense under the aegis of the Second Amendment. Have Collins and Reed lost any semblance of sanity?

Gun rights were the theme of Tommy Ahlquist’s campaign stop Monday at Independence Indoor Shooting in Meridian. Most of the questions from attendees, however, centered on other issues such as crowded roads and health care costs.

The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance hosted the event to discuss gun laws in Idaho.

The event was planned before the mass shooting in Las Vegas, but that tragedy may have caused people to wonder how their gun rights might be affected, said Rick Casner, academy director at the shooting range.
 

NV: Groundhog Day for the gun controllers

However, the reaction to this event by politically correct liberals and their media amen corner is nothing but a version of the classic film Groundhog Day. That’s the movie in which the main character must relive the same day over and over again until, as one online summary says, he gains some karmic and comic insight into his life.

Unfortunately, the left and media show no signs of karmic insight or any other kind. Instead, each event such as this one presents them an opportunity to rehearse yet again their tired gun control litany. As Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says: “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.”

Smith and his colleagues immediately put the recital hall on lockdown and alerted the audience of about 400 students and guests to the situation. He said his priority was to ensure that his students were protected from both the external threat and the internal threat from anyone who could have been carrying a concealed weapon.

“At one point, a young man became very agitated, and he stood and said: ‘Who’s got a gun? Are you ready?'” Smith said, adding that several people acknowledged they had concealed weapons.

“I went to the people who nodded, and said, ‘I suggest you keep your weapons concealed, because if the police enter, they won’t be able to tell the difference between a good guy and a bad one.'”

The Michigan Supreme Court will hear the case of a Dearborn Heights man convicted of shooting an unarmed woman on his porch nearly four years ago.

Theodore Wafer, 58, is seeking to have his second-degree murder conviction overturned, saying the jury should have been allowed to find that the fatal shooting of Renisha McBride was in self-defense.

University of Wisconsin-Madison students plan to rally Wednesday against Senate Bill 169. The bill would eliminate a required conceal-carry permit in Wisconsin. It would also allow concealed firearms on properties they were previously banned from, unless otherwise noted.

The rally is in response to a campus lecture by Katie Pavlich Tuesday night. Pavlich is a pro-gun activist who spoke Tuesday about the Second Amendment and self-defense.

The UW rally is called 'Get Your Guns Off Our Campus.’

Kelly’s right: We should be having a conversation about the politics of gun control. A real conversation.

To start, we should talk about how phrases such as “gun control” are usually little more than a security blanket for most Americans. Its appeal rests in its simplistic, albeit impractical, disposal of a difficult problem. Want to stop a madman from killing 59 people? Easy. Just take away his guns.

But an honest conversation about “gun control” would reveal that policy proposals most parroted by leftists are unsupported by research or facts.

Manufacturers of the recoil capture devices known as “bump stocks” have been slapped with a class action lawsuit by three people who witnessed the carnage unfold during the Mandalay Bay Massacre in Las Vegas on October 1.

Plaintiffs Devon Prescott, Brooke Freeman, and Tasaneeporn Upright are suing individually and as members of an anticipated class, who claim they “tragically suffered emotional distress as a result of the shooting that occurred during the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.” The lawsuit goes on:

The “Cocks not Glocks” group was protesting a speech by conservative commentator Katie Pavlich, who argues one of the best ways to defend against the threat of rape is by allowing women access to their Second Amendment right to carry a firearm.

The video shows an apparent female student telling the group of dildo-waving women that her friend was raped on campus, and if she had had the right to carry that might not have happened.

“Stop insulting survivors,” someone screamed.

Nobody needs a semiautomatic weapon for the purposes of hunting or self-defense, and the fact that these killing machines are as accessible as they are to anyone speaks volumes. The Republican party, which currently controls the White House and Congress, is heavily influenced by the endless coffers of the wealthy and powerful National Rifle Association (NRA) — in direct opposition to even the most common-sense gun regulation. Those who have the money have the say in this administration. And as long as our lawmakers value funding above humanity, and we the people sit back in complicit silence, nothing will change; we just wait for the next slaughter and hope nobody we love is caught in the firestorm.
 

CA: 9th Circuit Rules There’s No Constitutional Right to Sell Firearms. Will the Supreme Court Care?

Does the Second Amendment protect an individual right to sell firearms to the public? No, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Tuesday in Teixeira v. County of Alameda, a landmark decision affirming the government’s constitutional authority to strictly regulate gun shops. The 9–2 ruling is a victory for gun safety advocates who feared judicial aggrandizement of the right to bear arms could invalidate myriad laws governing firearm commerce. The decision may be imperiled, however, if the plaintiffs appeal to the Supreme Court, where conservative justices are increasingly eager to expand the scope of the Second Amendment.
