God, Guns, and Freedom seeks to facilitate discussion of these critical and often controversial amendments with two programs designed to help Kansans negotiate the meaning and consequences of these rights in 21st-century Kansas.

Our top story: with the new gun carry law changes you are asking us if this will change how you carry personal protection. You wanted to know if you can still conceal carry your knife, taser, or even batons.

"I'm not sure on that. I read on that. It's so convoluted. I'm not sure," said The Sound of Freedom USA Owner, A.G. Paul.

Gun owners and even some law enforcement personnel are asking whether you can conceal carry knives under the new law.

"As far as the knives, I really don't know," said a man who works in law enforcement and wanted to remain anonymous.
 

Clinton Slammed for Her Description of Supreme Court Gun Ruling

Hillary Clinton's characterization of a landmark gun decision has Second Amendment advocates crying foul.

The topic arose at Wednesday night's presidential debate during a discussion about issues the Supreme Court could tackle during the next administration, including the Second Amendment, which guarantees "the right of the people to keep and bear arms."

Debate moderator Chris Wallace mentioned the Heller case, which was the high court's 2008 ruling that residents of Washington, D.C., had the constitutional right to bear arms in their own home for self-defense, for instance, which negated a longtime firearm ban in the city.

While still sitting in their car, they were approached by an individual wearing a black ski mask and wielding a handgun.

The would-be robber, identified later by police as a local 22 year old, threatened the husband who was in the driver’s seat. He demanded money and that the husband get out of the vehicle.

While the robber was focused on the driver, his wife got a handgun the couple kept in their car and was able to hand it to her husband. The husband then fired several rounds at the armed suspect, hitting him once in the leg.
 

IL: Illinois gun laws, and a troubling loophole

Prosecutors say Michael Arquero was acting in self-defense when he fired back at a drive-by shooter last month outside a taco stand in Humboldt Park. He will not face charges related to the car driver's death. "I would consider him a good guy with a gun," one of his friends told the Tribune. "There's the bad guys with guns, and he's a good guy with a gun."

We don't know if Arquero is a good guy with a gun or a bad guy with a gun, but this much we know: He should not have had a gun in the first place. He is a convicted felon, and felons aren't allowed to buy or possess a gun in Illinois. So how did he get one?

Twelve Boulder County jurors were asked to determine whether the fatal stabbing of University of Colorado student Sean Hudson by another student during a brawl in downtown Boulder last December was self-defense or murder.

After a week of testimony and just three hours of deliberation, they came to the same conclusion as Ian Scheuermann's attorneys: self-defense.

Scheuermann, 23, was found not guilty of second-degree murder Friday.
 

Hillary Clinton: "Reasonable" to Require Guns to be Unusable at Home

Nevertheless, her own campaign website continues to call for a ban on “military-style assault weapons,” which is simply her unflattering term for AR-15s and the like, America’s most popular rifles. In other words, even as she’s insisting she doesn’t want to take away Americans’ guns, she’s promoting a ban on the very types of rifles Americans choose over all others.

That’s what ordinary people – the kind Clinton refers to as “deplorable” and “irredeemable” – call a lie.
 

New York Times Examines Mass Shootings and Gun Laws; Their Findings "Dispiriting to Anyone Hoping for Simple Legislative Fixes to Gun Violence"

The New York Times, who last year ran a nearly unprecedented front-page editorial calling for the banning and confiscation of a commonly used and rarely abused class of civilian firearms, investigated today how and whether laws, either existing or proposed, would have impacted "all 130 shootings last year in which four or more people were shot, at least one fatally, and investigators identified at least one attacker."

The overarching conclusion from reporters Sharon LaFraniere and Emily Palmer? They learned "not only how porous existing firearms regulations are, but also how difficult tightening them in a meaningful way may be."

"The findings are dispiriting to anyone hoping for simple legislative fixes to gun violence,"
 

Australia: Australia Admits Gun Buyback Failure, Announces Amnesty

The Australian government has begrudging and indirectly admitted the failure of their strict gun control laws, which included a gun buyback scheme that has been ignored by hundreds of thousands of citizens.

In a desperate attempt to get guns out of the hands of citizens who refuse to give them up, the Justice Minister has lamely offered an amnesty that amounts to whining, “won’t you please hand over your liberty?”

Earlier this week, a Winn Parish Grand Jury issued a "No True Bill" for Duncan after hearing evidence--meaning the jury declined to indict him.

The jury's conclusion states that Duncan was acting in self-defense and they did not have reason to believe he intended to kill Fernando Jewitt.

In response to the first question in Wednesday's third and final presidential debate, Donald Trump declared that "if my opponent should win this race, … we will have a Second Amendment which will be a very, very small replica of what it is right now."

That might sound like an overly pessimistic prediction, but it is actually the best gun owners can hope for under a Hillary Clinton presidency.

Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted to come to the aid of our servicemen and women — as has been proven in the past when the people in Benghazi died because she ignored their frantic calls for help. When she is told to hand over important documents regarding emails, she has them destroyed.

She is against Americans carrying guns and says, if elected, she will start to tackle gun laws the first day. She has been protected by armed security for 30 years, but doesn’t believe Americans should have the right to carry guns for self-defense.

Note that Hillary said if it is a constitutional right. The Court has ruled that it is a constitutional right, just as it has ruled that abortion is a constitutional right. Ask Hillary why she said “IF”. Does she not believe it is a constitutional right? Even if she disagrees with the Court’s decision, joined by Justices Thomas, Alito, Roberts, and Kennedy, does she not accept it as the constitutional law of the land just like abortion? Wallace pressed Trump on if he would accept the election results but failed to ask Hillary if she accepts the Supreme Court decision in Heller.

"I understand and respect the tradition of gun ownership," Clinton said when asked her views on the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. "But I also believe that there can be and must be reasonable regulation."

Trump hit back on regulation, "In Chicago, we have the toughest laws and you have tremendous gun violence, " before reaffirming his strong support of the Second Amendment.

Soon, voters in four states -- California, Maine, Nevada, and Washington -- will vote on gun measures.

DISHONEST REPEAL OF 2nd AMENDMENT: Only those who want all guns outlawed without the bother of having to repeal the Second Amendment can be disappointed by a state judge's dismissal the other day of the lawsuit brought against Remington Arms for having made the rifle used by the young maniac who perpetrated the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in 2012.

The theory the lawsuit sought to develop is "negligent entrustment" -- that the manufacturer should have known that its product would fall into the hands of an evildoer and so the manufacturer should be held financially responsible for the resulting damage.

The Wall Street Journal editorial board tore into Hillary Clinton’s debate performance regarding the Supreme Court, saying that she represents a view that threatens American liberty, while giving Republican nominee, Donald Trump, props for having the superior grasp of our constitution.

For starters, The Journal ripped into Clinton’s notion that the Supreme Court should represent us, especially in its composition. That’s wrong. That’s what the legislative branch is for.

Near the beginning of the third and final presidential debate of 2016 on Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton was confronted by debate moderator about her position on human right to bear arms reflected by our Founding Fathers in the Second Amendment.

Mrs. Clinton’s answer was as dismissive and ofuscory as we’ve come to expect.

Donald Trump’s claim that he will accept the legitimacy of the vote if he wins but not if he loses is not something you expect to hear in the United States. As President Obama’s Executive Order of May 6, 2016 explained, “The peaceful transition of power has long been a hallmark of American democracy.”

NRA Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Wayne LaPierre delivered an urgent message to America’s 100 million gun owners, declaring Hillary Clinton an enemy to the Second Amendment. “If, God forbid, Hillary Clinton is elected, she will launch an all-out war on the Second Amendment. She will come for your guns,” says LaPierre. “She will attack your right to carry. She will attack your most basic right to defend your family with a firearm in your home.”

Yuill pointed to legal challenges taken against the Brexit referendum result where a number of challenges have been heard in court.

He draws parallels with those challenging the outcome of the referendum and those in the US campaigning against the Second Amendment.

"Those who are currently launching a court action against Brexit in the UK reject the results of the biggest vote in UK history.

"In the United States, those who campaign against the Second Amendment seek to have the Second Amendment annulled on a technicality rather than do the real work of repealing it through the Constitutional process. So Trump's attitude is by no means unprecedented or even, sadly, exceptional."

Last week a Connecticut Superior Court judge issued a decision rightfully upholding the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) and dismissing a suit brought against the Remington companies, a distributor and a retailer.

The suit attempted to claim that the lawful manufacture, distribution and sale of an AR-15 type rifle constituted “negligent entrustment,” a view significantly widening that concept.
