How do Pro-Gun Democrats Vote?

I met a few people who call themselves “Pro-Gun Democrats”. I’m not sure what that means. Pro-gun Democrats might like guns. They might shoot guns, yet I don’t see how they can be for gun owners and ownership when their party is for gun control and confiscation.

How do pro-gun Democrats vote?
 

WA: Quit waiting for gun safety; vote ‘yes’ on Washington Initiative 1639

“Common sense gun reform” is a cry that ricochets throughout the U.S. whenever a mass shooting occurs. But the pattern following gun violence is all-too predictable: Politicians scurry up to podiums to lift prayers and fast promises, then bide their time until public fervor fades.

Well, Washington’s fervor has not faded. That’s why the Alliance for Gun Responsibility collected more than 300,000 signatures to certify Initiative 1639, a sweeping gun-safety measure that could bypass years of federal and state legislative gridlock.

Yellowhammer Tactical recently broke ground on a new business site that will offer the only pistol range in Jasper.

Drivers along Highway 78 in the city may have noticed groundwork across the highway from the new Tractor Supply, and, as early as next spring, Yellowhammer Tactical will have their new home on the three-acre site. The business opened in June of last year at 4011 Highway 195 to sell a variety of guns and tactical gear to the general public.

Co-owners Chad Tuggle and Mort Kelley say expanding their business to include a pistol range was part of their original business plan.

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has joined 16 other states in an amicus brief supporting the Second Amendment in response to New York City’s “premises permit” gun restrictions.

“The Founding Fathers ensured our right to bear arms with the Second Amendment, and it is important that no government try to take away that right,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Allowing a government such control sets a dangerous precedent.”

Today, we’ll explore a two-part question submitted by Carl Axness: Which states have the highest rate of gun violence per capita, and how do they rate in terms of gun control with the rest of the country?

The answer to the first part of this question is straightforward. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tracks gun deaths (homicides, suicides, and accidental shootings) in all 50 states.

Hip-hop superstar Kanye West defended the Second Amendment on Thursday, in a visit at the White House with President Donald Trump.

West was asked reporters about gun violence in Chicago.

“The problem is illegal guns,” West replied. “Illegal is the problem, not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms.”
 

NICS Checks Remain High in September, More Carry Permits, Lower Gun Sales

September, 2018 had 1,956,681 NICS checks. September, 2017 had 1,967,104 NICS checks, and September, 2016, the all time record, had 1,992,219 NICS checks. There is less than a two percent difference in the total NICS checks numbers for the last three Septembers.

Retailers are reporting that sales of firearms have fallen. How are the high NICS numbers and lower firearm sales reconciled?

The answer can be found by digging deeply into the FBI reports of NICS numbers by state and type.

While total NICS numbers remain high, the number of NICS numbers used for gun permits and for permit re-checks has become a larger percentage of the total.

Dementia And Guns: When Should Doctors Broach The Topic?

Some patients refuse to answer. Many doctors don’t ask. As the number of Americans with dementia rises, health professionals are grappling with when and how to pose the question: “Do you have guns at home?”

While gun violence data is scarce, a Kaiser Health News investigation with PBS NewsHour published in June uncovered over 100 cases across the U.S. since 2012 in which people with dementia used guns to kill themselves or others. The shooters often acted during bouts of confusion, paranoia, delusion or aggression — common symptoms of dementia. Tragically they shot spouses, children and caregivers.

Defense attorney John Pike, however, had another perspective: He painted Spencer as a hard-working family man and homeowner who ran his own business and had a valid concealed carry permit for the gun. He also had no criminal record.

Pike argued that Spencer was defending himself after enduring a night of racial taunting, including the fact that a white man refused to touch him because he was black.

The Philadelphia Tribune reports that that night, Spencer arrived at the bar with his neighbor Henry Gift, who is white.
 

Self-Defense Options When You Don’t Have a Gun

When it comes to self-defense a firearm will always be the optimal choice and absolute equalizer. There are certain instances however where a person might not be able to carry. Whether you reside somewhere that has restrictive gun laws or have another reason you will be without your firearm, you should never have to feel defenseless. For most of us, we can feel a little lost when it comes to defending ourselves in situations where we are without our gun. Not everyone is trained in advanced martial arts or possesses die-hard self-defense tactics. Even those who have had some self-defense training might not remember “what move does what” in a moment of shock or panic.

The coalition asks the United States Supreme Court to consider the permitting scheme’s burden on Second Amendment rights, the full extent of those rights, and the applicability of those rights to self-defense outside the home.

Clark sided with the plaintiffs in ruling that officials cannot prohibit visitors from carrying guns in camping areas in parks and lodges on forest land. He noted that the Supreme Court specifically held that a person has a constitutional right to have a firearm while camping overnight in a state park.

"The effect of including camp sites within sensitive areas forces state park and forest visitors to give up their right to self-defense in order to camp overnight in those areas," Clark wrote.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The supposed quietude of a good mans allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them... — Thomas Paine, I Writings of Thomas Paine at 56 (1894).
