"Will those who advocate citizen disarmament change their tune when it is their lives, their family and their property on the line? Will they still reject the need for guns in the home? Will they change their mind on concealed or open carrying? Will any resort to keeping and bearing 'assault weapons'? Will they respect 'gun free zone' signs ordering them to disarm? Will they insist on background checks before engaging in any firearm transfers? How will they license and register guns (where 'required') if authorities are preoccupied fighting literal and figurative fires?"
 

Russia: Russia allowing licensed Concealed Carry

In an amendment to its tough gun control laws, the Russian government eases restrictions, allowing citizens to carry licensed weapons for the purposes of ‘self-defense.’

Until now Russian gun enthusiasts were only permitted to carry firearms for hunting or target shooting after obtaining a license through the Interior Ministry. Russian gun licenses are to be renewed every five years, and applicants face strict background checks and are required to take gun safety courses.

The addendum to the law now lists self-defense as a legally acceptable reason for carrying a weapon.

Submitter's note: So growing up in a cold war world.....Holy WOW Batman!
 

It's All Part of the Plan to Destroy the Gun Culture

Jay Leno cancelled his appearance at the NSSF State of the Industry Dinner under pressure from CSGV, Everytown, and other gun prohibitionists. Rather than seeing this incident merely as another entertainer showing his spineless side when pressed, we should see it for what it really is: nothing less than an attack on the gun culture.
 

FL: Sacrifices to the Second Amendment

The gun lobby acknowledges the problem of mass-shooting incidents in the United States. Its solution calls for arming more people who could potentially stop a shooter and for rapid-response training focused on minimizing casualties. This is part of an increasingly pervasive, insidious gun culture that accepts mass shootings as inevitable. But by this logic, the first victims—friends, loved ones, children—are expendable. The first victims of a mass shooting are a mangled human sacrifice on the altar of Second Amendment rights.
 

Ben Carson Seeks to Assure Supporters He's Solid on Guns

Ahead of a weekend trip to Iowa, potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson sought to assure supporters Wednesday evening that he's a strong Second Amendment supporter.

As he inches closer to the prospect of a presidential campaign, Carson used a conference call to try to address questions about his loyalty to gun rights. Skeptics often point to a statement the neurosurgeon-turned-conservative-activist made in 2013 to conservative talk-show host Glenn Beck, who asked whether people have the right to own semi-automatic weapons.

Ed.: He is about as pro-gun as Bloomberg is.

Several gun-control groups plan to deliver a petition to Gov. Gary Herbert on Friday in opposition to Utah laws that bar universities from keeping guns off their campuses.

The Gun Violence Prevention Center of Utah, MomsRising.org, and The Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus all plan to hold a news conference Friday morning outside Herbert's office.
 

Pennsylvania machinist creates steel-reinforced bullet for 3D-printed guns

Crumling claims that the steel-reinforced bullet has been created in such a way that it enables repeated firing of a home-printed firearm made from even the cheapest materials. Even if the firearm is fired again and again, there is no cracking or deformation.

About the "really simple" concept of the steel-reinforced bullets, Crumling told Wired: "It's kind of a barrel integrated into the shell, so to speak. Basically it removes all the stresses and pressures from the 3-D printed parts. You should be able to fire an unlimited number of shots through the gun without replacing any parts other than the shell."

A planned vote Thursday by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to repeal a 57-year ban on using suppressors for game hunting has been pushed back due to attention from gun control opposition.

The seven-member commission was set to vote at its semi-annual public meeting in Key Largo on a proposed rule change to remove the prohibition on the use of NFA-compliant noise-suppressed (i.e., silencer-equipped) rifles and pistols for taking deer, gray squirrels, rabbits, wild turkeys, quail and crows. Currently hunters can only take non-game species such as feral hogs and armadillos.
 

WA: Museum Removes Guns From Exhibit Over Vague Law

A Washington State museum is returning all the guns in its World War II exhibit to the owners because a newly passed gun-control bill does not specify whether or not the museum falls under the rule of Initiative 594, a law that expands the background check requirement in that state when guns are transferred. The Lynden Pioneer Museum has not received clarification on whether or not the firearms in their care – including a anti-tank rifle and a Johnson M1941 – needed to be transferred with a background check. Instead of fighting the law, they are returning the guns.

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey continued to lead legal efforts to support your Second Amendment rights by filing an amicus curiae, or “friend of the court,” brief with a bipartisan coalition of 21 state Attorneys General across the country.

This brief urged the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit to declare unconstitutional a Maryland law forbidding the possession, sale or transfer of certain firearms.

In the United States, there are two different ways in which citizens can carry firearms: open carry, in which the weapon can be seen by a casual observer, and concealed carry, in which the weapon cannot.

Because there has never been a federal law that covers the issuance of concealed or open-carry permits, states determine the extent to which they can be issued. All 50 states allow, at some level, concealed carry, but some states are considerably more restrictive than others. California, Florida, Illinois, Texas, South Carolina and New York (as well as Washington, D.C.) are the only states to prohibit open carry of handguns in public.

All Americans can now apply to carry a gun in the nation's capital, but few will be granted a permit. That's why those who sued the city over the total ban on carry rights were back in a federal district court on Thursday to ask Judge Frederick Scullin to intervene.

The plaintiffs in Palmer v. D.C. want Judge Scullin to hold the city in contempt of his order to enact a licensing mechanism “enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.”

Alan Gura, the lawyer for the Palmer plaintiffs said in court that the new carry law is a “fig leaf” and a “symbolic gesture.”

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, which sponsors the SHOT Show – said to be the largest firearms industry trade show in the world, attracting more than 70,000 people to Las Vegas each January – issued a statement that was anything but a joke. NSSF said Leno “unilaterally cancelled his promised appearance due to pressure from the anti-gun lobby, which included false statements about our industry and its commitment to genuine firearms safety, which we attempted to personally correct with him, but to no avail.”

A ten acre plot of land, just down the road from Blue Mountain Brewery and a Martha Jefferson outpatient clinic, will soon be transformed into an 80,000-square-foot warehouse for Zenith Quest, an international importing and exporting business specializing in ammunition and firearms.

"We have the freedom to bear arms," said Hanri Kaya, who along with her husband, settled in Nelson County after immigrating from Turkey. Five kids and fifteen years later, the Kayas are hoping to expand their growing business. "If we are able to fill a niche in the market that brings something to the U.S. market...by all means we are going to do that."
 

FL: Florida State shooter identified: How best to protect students?

A seeming litany of school shootings continues to raise questions around the US about how best to protect students and whether college students should be able to carry weapons on campus for self-defense. Most of the 4,400 US colleges and universities currently ban firearms on campus.

The November general election suggested that a country that has increasingly embraced liberalized gun and self-defense laws in the last two decades may be pulling back. Colorado, Maryland, Connecticut, and New York have passed new gun control laws since 2012. This fall, voters in Washington State approved a referendum to add background checks to private gun sales to close the so-called “gun show loophole.”
 

CA: 2 state cases in U.S. court have local gun laws in the balance

Two California cases now pending in federal appeals court could go a long way in defining how far local governments can go in regulating gun ownership.

One of the cases of concern involves a ruling that struck down San Diego County’s restrictions on concealed weapons permits. The other is a challenge to Sunnyvale’s Measure C, approved by voters last year to ban magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

Either case has the potential to reach the U.S. Supreme Court, which in 2008 strengthened the right to have a firearm for self-protection. That ruling has emboldened gun-rights activists who are eager to chip further at local measures designed to restrict gun-possession laws.

Don’t misread my intention here; I am not advocating any training requirements that would even in appearance approach any form of gun control. However, if you carry a firearm, or any weapon for protection, and you are not aware of the elements necessary to prove innocence in one’s defense, you are at great risk of losing your freedom and all the material things you have worked hard to attain.

A joint statement and petition from Newtown Action Alliance, the Campaign to Unload, and Coalition to Stop Gun Violence issued November 18 called for Leno to cancel his appearance because host NSSF has "lobbied against even the most modest" gun safety initiatives and "has done nothing to reach out to the families whose children were killed in the [Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting], despite the fact that the association is headquartered in Newtown":

In August, U.S. District Judge Anthony Ishii struck down the California 10-day waiting period to buy guns for people who are known to the state to already own guns — a narrow but significant Second Amendment decision. Today, Judge Ishii declined to issue a stay of his decision; here’s part of the reasoning (paragraph breaks added)

Earlier this week, comedian Jay Leno earned praise for his generosity after giving a wounded veteran a brand new muscle car. Much of that good will was soon lost, however, when the former ‘Tonight Show’ host abruptly announced that he was backing out of an appearance at the 2015 Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas.

CSGV said there was nothing funny about a comedian speaking at the SHOT Show and that Leno, in particular, was "helping to legitimize a crass commercialization which values profit over human lives."

Florida State University President John Thrasher, who started the job only earlier this month, was in New York at the time of the shootings and immediately returned to Tallahassee.

As a state senator three years ago, Thrasher was instrumental in blocking legislation that would have allowed guns on campus in some cases. He called it "beyond personal." Here is an excerpt from the March 9, 2011, story from the Times/Herald Tallahassee Bureau:
