Photos of two suspects, a married couple, posing nude with a child were among the items authorities seized when a longtime sheriff’s deputy and a junior high school teacher were arrested this week in Louisiana on child rape and pornography charges, according to a report.

The husband was immediately terminated from his job as a lieutenant with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office, while the wife resigned from her teaching job at a junior high school in Walker, La., the report said.

“It’s a sad day for us, for all law enforcement officers, when you arrest one of your own,” Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard said in a statement. “ … but as I have said in the past, no one is above the law.”

An attempted robber has been shot and killed inside a restaurant in Highland Park early Thursday morning.

The incident happened at the Woodward Bistro on Woodward near Davison.

The man came inside the restaurant with the intent to rob the place, according to police.

A CPL holder inside the business at the time opened fire, killing the suspect. Police say the CPL holder was the business owner.

Police say a waitress inside the restaurant was wounded during the shooting. Originally, a Highland Park city official told 7 Action News the waitress was shot in the arm by the alleged gunman. Police later corrected the statement to say she was grazed by a bullet to her torso, and that an accidental shooting on the part of the bar owner.

Since 2007, at least 1,300 people have died at the hands of a concealed carry permit holder for reasons other than self-defense, a new analysis from the non-profit Violence Policy Center shows.

Using public reporting and information culled from some individual state databases, the center was able to compile a list of 1,335 people killed by someone who, at the time, possessed a concealed carry permit.

Ed.: Newsweek does a decent job a here of destroying their own click-bait headline.

The National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today applauded a decision by the Montana state Supreme Court protecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners in that state. In an NRA-backed case, the justices held, in a 5-0 decision, that the City of Missoula's attempt to impose extreme gun control measures was a clear violation of state law.
 

PA: We need to get serious about stopping gun deaths like we did traffic fatalities. That’s the way to true change

Today we need Congress and our state legislatures to do the same for firearms. We need universal background checks and extreme risk laws. We also need bans on high capacity magazines and assault weapons, safe storage laws, and mandatory lost and stolen reporting.

We need to increase the minimum purchase age to 21 and we need to fund research to learn what additional measures will decrease the carnage we face from guns today, while preserving the right of law abiding gun owners to engage in firearms recreation and maintain weapons for self defense.

When was the last time you went plinking? You know, shooting for fun in the woods, on the farm or at a range, probably with a .22 LR? It’s what got most of us started in shooting and led to a lifetime of enjoyment with firearms. I started shooting with a friend’s Remington Nylon 66 in Apache Black and chrome, a .22 LR rifle I still lust after. Not long afterward, I was introduced to wing shooting with a .410-Bore shotgun and soon had my own .22 LR rifle, a Winchester 69A bolt-action.
 

Plan Beyond 2020 or Lose Our Rights

The presidential election next year is going to be very important in determining the future of our rights. It will not be the only big story – there is the pending Supreme Court case involving gun regulations in New York City which will see a ruling issued in 2020. Second Amendment supporters need to plan for the aftermath of both of these – not just if the results are bad news, but also if they have successful outcomes.

Planning for bad news is important – if you fail to plan, you are essentially planning to fail, and that is one area of strategic incompetence that Second Amendment supporters should not tolerate.
 

OH: Lawmaker Reintroduces "Stand Your Ground" Self-Defense Bill

A similar bill was introduced last year, after a veto fight with former Gov. John Kasich resulted in a stripped down version that eventually passed.

Rep. Candice Keller (R-Middletown) said her bill would allow a person to use deadly force without retreating if they’re protecting themselves or others against real or perceived threats, even in public, and would protect them from having to defend themselves in court. Keller says 36 states have some form of a “stand your ground” law.

George Borrello, the endorsed Republican, Conservative, Independence and Libertarian candidate for the State Senate’s 57th District, announced that he has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF).

The NRA’s Political Victory Fund gave Borrello an AQ rating and an endorsement as being a pro-gun/pro-hunting candidate, who supports self-defense and is an advocate for the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. This is the highest rating a non-incumbent can receive.

Porche was arrested and booked on attempted aggravated kidnapping of a child and second-degree murder because his actions resulted in the death of the other man, the Sheriff's Office said.

The office said investigators determined that Dumas acted in self-defense, and he has not been charged in connection with the homicide. However, he was booked on two felony counts: possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession or dealing in firearms with an obliterated number.

The intruder — identified as Derek Carson, 51, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office — used a Taser on the resident and bit him, but suffered some sort of injury during the scuffle and died at the scene, police said. The resident was treated for his injuries at West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park and later released.

An autopsy determined that Carson, of the 1000 block of North Lawler Avenue, died from asphyxia brought on by compression of his neck during an altercation, and his death was ruled a homicide, the medical examiner’s office stated.

SIG Sauer is introduced its all-new Romeo1Pro Open Reflex Red Dot Sight in 2019, which is capable of mounting to any pistol with a SIG Sauer Pro slide cut.

“The Romeo1Pro is the latest evolution of the Romeo1 sights and brings a new level of durability and performance to the open-reflex red dot sight,” said Andy York, president, Sig Sauer Electro-Optics. “The adoption of a red-dot sight on pistols is becoming the standard in the commercial, law-enforcement and military markets, and the Romeo1Pro is the ultimate solution for fast, responsive target acquisition and accuracy combined with the easy mounting option of the Pro footprint.”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. --JOHN F. KENNEDY
