Political Corruption and Headline Surfing Leaves Our Children at Risk

Our view of violence is wildly distorted. We don’t know the truth, but I think we can handle it.

In the USA today, we think TV shows and the “news” represent reality. They aren’t. Instead of the truth, the news media feeds us the preferred biases of their selected audience spiced with titillating and emotionally charged subjects like violence and sexual scandal. That formula sells soap, but it is also selling us a dangerous brew of politics.

That witches-brew of lies could get our children killed.
 

MI: 'Red flag' laws could get Senate hearing

A package of bills in the state house could enact so-called “red-flag laws” that allow law enforcement to take away firearms from people who could be a risk to themselves or others.

The legislation has been sitting in the senate since February but now bill sponsors say they have been promised a hearing.

Similar laws have or will soon be enacted in 18 other states including Illinois and Connecticut. The laws have been posited as way to reduce mass shootings, domestic violence and suicide.

According to a 2018 study, red flag laws are responsible for a 14 percent decline in firearm suicides in Connecticut and a 7 percent decline in Indiana.

The Waimea High School girls air riflery team outpointed Kauai High School by 28 points to claim the Kauai Interscholastic Federation girls air riflery title Wednesday afternoon during a shoot off held at a “neutral field” — Island School.

Jenna Antolin, a first-year sharpshooter, set the pace for the shootout by finishing with a day’s high 259 points (83 prone, 82 standing, and 94 kneeling). Kauai High School’s leading scorer, Glycelle Morden, finished nine points back at 250 (91-71-88) despite her strong showing in the prone position.

Red Raider Kierstyn Bukoski, who led the girls through the season, tumbled to the No. 3 scoring spot at 241 following a tie for the No. 2 position by Lauryn Tugade 242 and Cody Lagazo 242.

A conservative Ohio lawmaker has reintroduced the "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.
 

OK: Q: What really changes on Nov. 1?

A: A few things, but the biggest is that a license to carry now is optional.

Among other provisions, the main change under House Bill 2597 is that the Self-Defense Act no longer requires Oklahomans who are 21 years old or veterans or military who are 18 and over to obtain a permit at a cost $100 for five years or $200 for 10, which required a training certificate that showed basic knowledge of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act and an ability to handle a firearm safely, proof of residency or permanent military orders to be in the state, a background check and fingerprinting.
 

OH: Lawmaker Wants Ohio to Join Other States That Have Passed 'Stand Your Ground' Bills

Rep. Candice Keller of Middletown says the 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. And Keller says with Gov. Mike DeWine proposing legislation to curb gun violence, including a version of a red flag gun seizure law, now is the time for her bill.

There’s ax throwing, zombie hunting, indoor shooting range, archery targets and much more at Shooter’s Corner, a new business in Pratt put together by local businessman Dale Withers and accomplices. All venues will be open November 1 except for the indoor shooting range, which will open as part of a grand opening celebration 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Monday, December 2.

“We really just wanted to create a place where we could educate kids about how to properly use guns and provide something to do. We needed a place where old folks could have some fun too, all with a high emphasis on safety,” said former Pratt Chief of Police Gary Myers who will be managing the business.
 

Why conservatives should stop being cheerleaders for Tulsi Gabbard

As personalities go, Gabbard appeals to a vast majority. But in terms of policy, she is as radical as the rest of the Democratic presidential hopefuls.

While she does support Second Amendment rights, Gabbard is a vocal proponent of banning assault-style weapons. As a co-sponsor of H.R. 5087, introduced in the House last year, she is publicly acknowledging her belief that removing certain weapons would be a fruitful and productive step in the fight against gun violence.

Reloading the Double-Action Revolver

There was quite a bit of interest in my column from last week about mastering the double-action revolver, so I thought I’d follow up with another revolver tip regarding ammo management.

From examining actual shootings, we know that most citizen-involved shooting are resolved with the ammunition in the defensive handgun. However, most is not all, so armed citizens should plan for the exceptional scenario. This is one of the reasons that we recommend a person carry at least one reload, regardless of the type of defensive handgun he or she carries. However, with the revolver, I choose to carry a minimum of two reloads and suggest that you do the same.

On October 18th, law-abiding gun owners won a major victory when the Washington Superior Court granted a motion for summary judgment against the City of Edmonds for violating the state’s preemption statute. This win invalidates the mandatory firearm storage ordinance passed by the City Council, and constitutes a victory for freedom and the Second Amendment.
 

FL: Margaret Good tries one last time on background checks for guns

Another Legislative Session means another attempt to close off a way around background checks before buying a gun in Florida.

State Rep. Margaret Good on Thursday once again filed legislation (HB 451) to institute universal background checks.

It faces an uphill climb in a GOP-majority, Second Amendment-friendly chamber, but the Sarasota Democrat hopes colleagues come to see the bill as a common sense measure.
 

WA: Backdoor Gun Suppression Through Taxes: Tacoma, WA Could Follow Chicago

As if unconstitutional attacks on the right to keep and bear arms – statutes such as license mandates, waiting periods, background checks, “Red Flag” codes, and outright bans on certain kinds of firearms – on federal and state levels were not enough, the overlords of Tacoma, Washington, have decided to follow the non-success of Chicago to make it even harder to exercise the right to self-defense.

“Gun control” advocates are avoiding this like an ugly dog: The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) recently released its 2019 update on concealed carry in the United States, and it’s not the kind of news the anti-self-defense crowd cares to acknowledge.

According to the CPRC, the number of people with concealed carry licenses or permits increased by “about 1.4 million.” This spike brought the total estimated number of licensed citizens to 18.66 million, a whopping 304 -percent increase over the past 12 years.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.— Benjamin Franklin Historical Review of Pennsylvania. [Note: This sentence was often quoted in the Revolutionary period. It occurs even so early as November, 1755, in an answer by the Assembly of Pennsylvania to the Governor, and forms the motto of Franklin's "Historical Review," 1759, appearing also in the body of the work. — Frothingham: Rise of the Republic of the United States, p. 413. ]
