MI: Michigan man linked to ISIS; guns found in Ann Arbor storage unit, propaganda on hard drive, FBI say
Submitted by: Corey Salo

Court records related to the indictment of an Ypsilanti man for possession of a firearm without a serial number indicate the man may have ties to ISIS.

Yousef Mohammed Ramadan, 28, was charged with possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number, which had moved in interstate commerce. The complaint was filed by an agent with the FBI’s counterterrorism team, but Ramadan has not been charged with a terror-related crime.

TSA officials said they discovered a rifle scope and mounts, knives, pepper spray, tactical load-bearing vests, a gas mask, two-way radios, a taser with extra cartridges, a pistol holster, ammunition pouches and black masks in Ramadan's checked luggage prior to his flight to Amman.
 

The Political Left’s True Colors When it Comes to Self Defense

Democrats are now lining up to oppose concealed-carry reciprocity, just as they (without exception) opposed legal concealed carry (that we now take for granted) in the first place.

Leftists in political power continue to insist that it is our civic duty to be weak, defenseless, and easy victims for violent criminals.

Accordingly, attorneys general from seventeen states, including NY, PA, and CA, every one a Democrat, are calling on Congress to oppose all legislation that would allow concealed-carry gun permits issued in one state to be honored in all states.

NovX is now shipping its new 9 mm ARX Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense and 9 mm RNP Crosstrainer rounds. The new stainless steel/copper polymer cartridge in 9 mm Luger +P and standard pressure, developed by Timberghost Tactical, was introduced in September to great industry fanfare as the company touted the many properties that make this new catridge so different from standard lead and brass ammo.

For home defense and carry purposes, the NovX 9 mm ARX Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense cartridge, combines the properties of a polymer/copper patented ARX bullet with the Shell Shock Technologies (SST) stainless steel casing and aluminum primer base, operating on the principle of aero and fluid dynamics as opposed to hydrostatic shock.
 

Why the NRA’s new “murder insurance” is so alarming to gun control activists

In other words, the NRA-sponsored insurance policy will provide “clean-up costs for any covered claim resulting from the use of a legally possessed firearm — including an act of self-defense.” The NRA’s “Carry Guard” sells itself as the “most complete self-defense insurance program and training for those who carry a gun.” But some are calling it “murder insurance.”

The HRC-200 is a direct-gas-impingement, flattop-receiver AR-15 chambered in either 5.56x45 mm NATO or 6.8 mm SPC. The latter is reviewed here. The sample rifle was outfitted with YHM’s rifle-length MR7 handguard, an A2-style pistol grip and an A2 buttstock that are well-suited for long-range and hunting applications, and the furniture and receivers have been hydro-dipped in Kryptek’s Highlander camouflage pattern. As is implied by the model designation, the HRC-200 features a 20" barrel with YHM’s diamond fluting. Shipping with each HRC rifle is a second-focal-plane Bushnell Trophy 3-9X 40 mm riflescope that has been mounted in the company’s one-piece scope mount and zeroed at 100 yds. from the factory.
 

LA: Some ideas for sensible gun control

3) All gun sales need to be accompanied by an efficient background check of the purchaser. This includes gun show, private and online purchases.

4) Carry, both concealed and open, should be prohibited with exceptions for hunters and recreational shooters. If you are going hunting, going recreational shooting, carry the gun. If you are going to church, the store, a demonstration and gun-free-zones: Leave the gun at home.

5) Gun manufacturers must be regulated to include the requirement to imprint permanent, non-erasable serial numbers on multiple parts of any gun.

This regulation would also require a serial number or code imprint on all bullets sold. Reloaders, who don’t sell, are exempt.

Tuesday evening's fatal shooting of a driver after a fight quickly escalated on a rural road northwest of Redding drew debate on local social media on when a person can shoot in self defense.

According to the Shasta County Sheriff's Office, the driver who was killed, 49-year-old Mark Alan Turner of Redding, and his passenger drove a Ford Expedition SUV to the end of City View Drive off Walker Drive Road to see the city lights. The pair parked at a turnout about 50 yards from the home of James Johnson, who told them they were trespassing and needed to leave.
 

WA: Far left anti-gun extremists go too far

Anti-gun extremists, from Walla Walla to New York, need to remember one incontrovertible fact: Americans regard the Second Amendment as sacrosanct and inviolable, just like the First Amendment.

After dancing in fresh blood, anti-gun radicals are now demanding gun control to stop the mass shootings. There are mass shootings in Chicago, weekly, and Chicago has tough gun-control laws.

Vicious drug gangs, like MS-13, are responsible for a lot of these shootings, and many of its members are illegal immigrants.

So, what’s the far left’s solution? Give sanctuary to these violent criminals and blame the NRA for the gun violence. And the left wonders why Donald Trump was propelled to the White House.
 

WA: Appeals court upholds Washington gun background check law

The initiative brought a lawsuit from gun rights advocates who claimed it would infringe on their Second Amendment rights, and the Legislature made some fixes, for example by making it clear that people don't need to run background checks before sharing guns while hunting.

That satisfied some of the groups that brought the lawsuit, but others, including Bellevue gun rights advocate Alan Gottlieb, said the law still infringed on their rights. Among other things, they argued that it bars couples that live together from transferring guns to each other if they're not married.

A bill to ban bump stocks in Illinois was voted down Thursday after lawmakers viewed the ban as overreaching and an endangerment to law-abiding gun owners.

State Rep. Marty Moylan (D-Des Plaines) put forth the ban in response to the October 1 Las Vegas attack.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Moylan introduced his legislation by saying, “Today, we are taking the first step towards better protecting our loved ones and preventing this horrific violence from happening in Illinois.”
 

MT: Judge Used Wrong Precedent In Bear Shooting, 9th Circ. Says

The Ninth Circuit on Wednesday ordered a new trial for a Montana man convicted of killing three endangered grizzly bears, saying a magistrate judge had used the wrong precedent to reach the conviction.

The appellate court panel vacated Dan Wallen's conviction, ordering U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch to reconsider a self-defense argument in the killings based on a subjective fear of Wallen's safety and the safety of his family, rather than the stricter standard of self-defense requiring Wallen to actually be attacked to defend himself...

U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich are original cosponsors of the Background Check Expansion Act to expand federal background checks to the sale or transfer of all firearms by private sellers, with certain reasonable exceptions. Under current law, unlicensed or private sellers are not required to conduct a background check prior to transferring a firearm. The bill was introduced yesterday by U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.).

This issue also goes back to social and cultural forces, especially the way that the gun industry and the NRA have cultivated a culture of gun-powered macho power fantasies. The number of people who own guns has steadily declined in recent years, so the gun industry has shifted its marketing tactics.

“It’s clear that the gun industry is marketing to people who are already their customer base and finding new and novel and unfortunately more dangerous weapons to sell them,” Lindsay Nichols, federal policy director for the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, explained to me.
 

Anti-Gunners Use Deceit To Disarm Americans

Anti-gun zealots say their goal is to save lives. The more I know about what they do (or don’t do), the more certain I am that this is a lie, at least for the professionals like Michael Bloomberg, Shannon Watts and Mark Kelly. As I have contended in the past, if they wanted to save 20,000 to 30,000 lives each year in America, they could meet with certain success by advocating a nationwide speed limit of 15 mph. After all, it’s difficult to die in a crash at such slow speeds, and there would undoubtedly be fewer accidents in the first place.

An Oct. 4 editorial in The Sun made note of Congress’ inability to respond to mass shootings with any significant action. The sticking point is always the supposedly sacrosanct Second Amendment’s dominance over whatever preventive action that could otherwise be enacted.

In reality, though, nothing could be further from the truth. There is no constitutional roadblock standing in the way.

Gardner gun owner is suing Gardner police in federal court, alleging officers violated his constitutional rights by seizing his firearms and denying him a license to carry a gun.

Erik Storm alleges Gardner police violated his Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, and his Fourth Amendment rights to be free from unreasonable search and seizure and the right to due process.

In November 2015, Erik Storm went to the Gardner police station to submit an application to renew his license to carry a firearm before its Dec. 4, 2015, expiration date, according to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Worcester.

Two proposals are on Monday's agenda of the Joint Committee on Judiciary and Public Policy:

1. Repeal of the law that requires a person to obtain a license to carry a handgun in Indiana.

2. Increase the number of law enforcement officers employed by local units of government in Indiana.

The interim legislative study committee should reject the first measure. But if it doesn't, committee members must approve the second. A recommendation for the General Assembly to eliminate the licensing requirement to carry a handgun puts Indiana law enforcement officers at increased risk.
