"What it actually reflects is the destructive effect of Stupid Party compromises, the 'kinder, gentler' and 'compassionate conservatism' that’s been at the squishy RINO core of the Bush family political dynasty, beginning with old man. And this isn't the first time Walton has shown the stuff he’s made of."

Remember when your grandfather told you to be aware of your targets and what is beyond them? There was a good reason for it, and a single .500 s&w round could have made for a really bad day at the range. Check out the video...
 

WA: Giffords struggling to make guns a midterm issue

She has delivered the same 64-word speech eight times already, but Gabby Giffords is struggling to get through the ninth.

"Together, we can win elections," the former Arizona congresswoman tells her Seattle audience before starting to stumble.

After a moment of confused silence, an aide whispers the next line, and Giffords continues the broken sentence: "... change our laws."

Four years after she was shot in the head and went on to inspire millions with her recovery, Giffords is as committed as ever to pushing for tighter gun-control laws.
 

MI: Huron Valley schools to tackle open carry issue

Turns out anyone with proper licensing and permits can carry a gun into a public school building, and officials with Huron Valley Schools are feeling concerned.

"We had a parent who very eloquently came to the district and expressed his intent to open carry in a couple of our school buildings," said HVS School Board Trustee Jeff Long at an Oct. 20 board dialogue meeting.

Superintendent Jim Baker declined to identify the parent, but said the man, who is properly licensed, has in fact, open carried a weapon in two of the district's buildings — those his children attend — after hours, when most students had gone home.
To bring it into the building you have to have a concealed carry license, but you have to open carry the weapon.

Police say the suspect then reportedly knocked the woman to the ground and attempted to rob her.

Witness Yadira Juarez was standing nearby.

"She was really shaken up," Juarez said. "She was shaking and scared."

Lummus, who has a concealed handgun permit, pulled out his gun and fired several shots, hitting the suspect as he was trying to get away in a vehicle.

"I heard the gunshots, and then I saw a car hitting another car," she said.

The man drove off, but eventually died in the car, causing it to crash into a parked vehicle.

A resident shot and injured a prowler she found inside her Lincoln Park home early Wednesday morning. However, the prowler may have just been a confused neighbor.

According to San Diego police, just after 2:30 a.m., a 30-year-old woman awoke to find another woman inside her home in the 500 block of Drew View Lane trying to turn off her alarm. The resident said the prowler became verbally abusive and started to threaten her.

The resident told police she produced a handgun and asked the suspect to leave. She then fired a round at the suspect, hitting her in the leg.

Representative Chris Leon Guerrero says the House of Representatives and the Senate have no choice but to pass a bill that will regulate handguns, which were previously outlawed by local statute.

He says the House is already looking at a bill that will have strict qualifications for those applying for a handgun licence.

A US Navy Gulf War veteran, David Radich and his wife have filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the CNMI Weapons Control Act that prohibits all residents from obtaining handguns for self-defense purposes.
 

MI: Group of Bay County Realtors obtaining concealed carry permits following slaying of Arkansas agent

With her hair pulled back under a hat, Shelley Gottschling fires several rounds from 9mm and .45 caliber handguns at a target inside Duncan's Outdoor Shop in Bay City.

At 5-feet-3-inches tall, the Bay County Realtor is small, but accurate. Five shots explode in the shooting range, each of them striking the head of a body drawn on the target sheet.

Bill Martin, chief executive officer of the Michigan Realtors Association, says the state organization also isn't pushing agents to obtain a CPL, but is addressing safety more vigorously this year.

"Our agents sometimes go to isolated areas alone — they could be a sitting duck," Martin said. "Safety is a great concern."
 

WA: Initiative 594 would create accidental felons

I-594 defines transfers as a change of possession, no matter how temporary, including gifts and loans. There are exceptions for family gifts, organized competitions and youth activities, but they are so narrow that most recreational, non-sale transfers would be crimes.

The father who loans a rifle to an adult son during hunting season would commit a misdemeanor (upon the first violation). When the rifle is returned, both father and son would be two-time offenders, and thus felons under I-594.

In other words, Madison suggested that when the federal government passes “laws” that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms, the states should refuse to cooperate with their implementation and enforcement, and pass legislation directing its agencies and employees to refuse to lift a finger to assist the federal government in any way. Madison’s strategy was to stand down when asked to help enforce federal gun laws, rules, orders or regulations.

The favorite prop in this year’s political campaigns isn’t an iPhone, a motorcycle, or even a flag. It’s a gun. Despite mass shootings in every part of the country—Tucson, Aurora, Fort Hood, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook—firearms seem more popular than ever. The contest among candidates to prove which of them is more gun-friendly has literally become an arms race. Here’s how they’re using their weapons.

When your security chief, Joel Keith, was asked at yet another press conference whether disarmed fair-goers could receive armed escorts to their vehicles, he responded in the affirmative. Unfortunately, that promise was carried out only reluctantly, and only when people demanded it. Worse, the metal detectors you promised for fair entrances were used only sporadically, as numerous fairgoers have reported.

Sometimes, I hate to be right: Three of the people you purported to protect were robbed at gun point. That's right, Commissioner Troxler; in case you haven't heard, here is an early account from WTVD:
 

PA: Legislature wrong on 'straw' gun laws

We wish he'd stuck with tax reform, which most of his constituents consider their No. 1 issue.

Instead, Grove went wandering far out in right field with a bill that kowtows to gun rights activists and puts communities at risk — physically and financially.

Grove co-sponsored a bill, now awaiting the governor's signature, aimed at deterring municipalities from creating gun control ordinances that are more stringent than the state's gun laws.

It does that by allowing individuals and "membership organizations" like the NRA, which might not otherwise have legal standing, to sue the municipalities and then make them pay their legal costs.

The Second Amendment Foundation on Oct. 27 filed a lawsuit in federal district court in Illinois challenging the state’s concealed carry statute that restricts otherwise qualified non-residents in the exercise of their right and privilege to carry concealed firearms based solely on their state of residence.

Joining the Second Amendment Foundation in this legal action are the Illinois State Rifle Association, Illinois Carry, Inc., and 10 individual plaintiffs, all residing in other states where they are licensed to carry. Under the restrictive Illinois statute, only residents from states with “substantially similar” requirements to obtain a carry license are allowed to apply for non-resident licenses.
 

WA: Majority Of Washington State Sheriffs Oppose I-594

A majority of Washington State’s 39 sheriffs have come out in opposition to anti-gun Washington State Ballot Initiative 594. The sheriffs oppose I-594 because it will not make anyone safer, will strain scarce law enforcement resources, will criminalize the lawful behavior of millions of law-abiding gun owners in Washington and will be unenforceable. Instead, I-594 would vastly expand the state’s handgun registry and force law-abiding gun owners to pay fees and get the government’s permission to sell or even loan a firearm to a friend or family member.

To date, 27 of the 39 sheriffs have publicly opposed I-594.

The wife of Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino defended her husband on Wednesday from attacks in a Cuomo campaign mailer that claims Astorino “supports bringing guns into schools and teaching students to shoot.”

“You’ve really gone too far for this mom and school teacher,” said Sheila Astorino, a special education teacher, in a video addressing Cuomo. “Telling people my husband wants guns in classrooms? Guns in classrooms?! You can't be serious.

“You used an extracurricular rifle safety program in a rural upstate county to make it sound like Rob would threaten the safety of school children?” she continued.

As Eric Holder’s disastrous reign as attorney general comes to a close, he counts among his and his anti-gun administration’s biggest failures the inability to further restrict American’s Second Amendment rights.

Considering his track record (we’re still dealing with the ramifications of the infamous Fast and Furious debacle, among other things), that’s saying something.

The latest U.S. school shooting claimed the lives of two students and the teenage shooter less than two weeks before congressional and statewide elections. It barely made a ripple in the final days of campaigning.

Candidates nationwide have largely ignored the issue of gun control ahead of the Nov. 4 election. Democrats facing an uphill battle to save their Senate majority from a Republican takeover have been unwilling to take up a divisive matter that could alienate many voters.

A week before Pennsylvania voters render their verdict on his last four years, Republican Gov. Tom Corbett signed a pro-gun law barring local restrictions.

The bill specifically would prevent local governments from passing gun laws that are more restrictive than the state gun laws and basically erases existing local gun laws.

While Washington state gun rights are in the national spotlight, another battle over firearms is raging in Alabama, where pro-gun activists are fighting one another over a proposed constitutional amendment on the Nov. 4 ballot, and it’s caused the Alabama House Republicans to issue a statement Monday, explaining Amendment 3.

According to the House GOP, “There is overwhelming support by gun rights organizations for Amendment 3, including: the National Rifle Association, the Alabama Gun Rights Association, the Second Amendment Foundation, Gun Owners of America, and the Citizens Committee on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.”
 

WA: Another rally for gun control, another Wash. sheriff against it

While backers of billionaire-funded Initiative 594 are planning one more rally this Saturday – using the Marysville-Pilchuck school shooting as something of a campaign prop – another county sheriff has joined 26 of his colleagues to oppose the measure, making the count more than two-thirds of the elected sheriffs against the measure.

Reports from several readers to Examiner late yesterday indicated that many, if not all, of these lawmen have apparently been targeted by "robo-calls" from I-594 supporters, claiming the sheriffs are out of touch with their constituents, and have been co-opted by the "gun lobby."

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property . . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them. — Thomas Paine, Thoughts on Defensive War (1775).
