At least 10 firearms were stolen in a break-in at a Blackman Township gun store early Monday morning, and law enforcement officials are seeking help locating the perpetrators.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of the men who broke into a Blackman Township gun store and stole 10 guns.

In a joint investigation with the Blackman-Leoni Township Public Safety Department, police determined that at 2:15 a.m., Nov. 5, three men broke into Action Discount, 625 Shirley Drive, and stole more than 10 guns, including one rifle, police said.

Anchorage teenager Grayson Davey teamed up with a California trapshooter to win a gold medal and set an American record the trap mixed event at the Championship of the Americas on Tuesday in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Davey, 17, only missed one target in qualification, hitting 74 of 75. That put him and partner Ashley Carroll of Solvang, California, in second place heading into the finals.

The pair combined for a score of 46 out of 50 in the finals, setting an American record en route to winning the gold medal. Davey and Carroll finished four points ahead of the silver-medal team from Mexico. The other U.S. team, which included Olympic gold medalist Glenn Eller, finished fourth.

Robert Biggers Jr., 18, of Louisville, died just after midnight at the complex at 4516 Broadleaf Drive, according to the Jefferson County Coroner's Office.

The deadly shooting is believed to have been in self-defense, according to police.

Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell told the Courier Journal on Thursday that the case appeared to be a "self-defense situation." It will be turned over to the Commonwealth Attorney's Office as they investigate the incident and decide whether or not to bring charges.
 

Thousand Oaks parents: ‘I don’t want prayers. I don’t want thoughts. I want gun control.’

It wasn’t until noon on Thursday that a police officer told them the news: Their 27-year-old son, Telemachus Orfanos, was dead.

That marked the end of one grim ritual, and the beginning of another, as the Orfanos parents channeled their private anguish into a public cry for gun control — a cry that has echoed from Aurora to Newtown and beyond.

But what distinguished their plea was an utter disavowal of the stock response to the violence that claimed their son’s life.

“I don’t want prayers. I don’t want thoughts. I want gun control," Susan Orfanos said on local TV.

The mother of a murder victim making her first run for public office on a gun-control platform has flipped a long-red House seat that Georgia Republicans held onto just last year in what was then the nation's most expensive congressional race.

"We've sent a strong message to the entire country," Lucy McBath tweeted on Thursday after Rep. Karen Handel conceded.
"Absolutely nothing – no politician & no special interest – is more powerful than a mother on a mission," she said.

It's not easy to spot, but Alyssa Gibson's skull claw keychain goes with her everywhere.

"It's always on me. My keys are always clipped to my purse," said Gibson. "There's been times I've put it in between my fingers and felt like if I had to, I was ready."

It's this ready-to-fight mindset former Metro police officer James Buford Tune said is key to surviving an attack.
 

After another mass shooting, gun safety advocates look to midterm success to stop violence

Another mass shooting in the wake of this week’s midterms is forcing the question of what the newly split Congress means for the future of gun control. The short answer: Ask the states.

Though Democrats — including some who ran on gun control platforms — now control the U.S. House of Representatives, the Republican-controlled Senate means there’s little chance of federal gun safety legislation being passed, said Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey.

Prosecutors have ruled the use of force by a Massachusetts cabbie who fought back after he was attacked by two men seeking to rob him as self-defense.

Bristol County DA Thomas M. Quinn III last week said the unidentified Yellow Cab driver was cleared by his office in the Aug. 10 shooting that left one of his attackers, Christopher Dunton, 24, of New Bedford, dead.

“After a thorough investigation, it is clear that the cab driver acted in lawful self-defense and the use of deadly force was justified under the circumstances,” Quinn said, as reported by South Coast Today.

While Republicans controlled Congress, gun rights weren’t a major issue for them. Several quality pieces of Second Amendment legislation penned by Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C. — such as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 ( H.R. 38), which garnered the support of more than 200 co-sponsors, and the D.C. Personal Protection Reciprocity Act ( H.R. 2909) introduced by Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky. — weren’t a priority for retiring Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

We've begun the ritual: Tally the victims. Note the location—this time, Thousand Oaks, California. Search for answers about the (white, male) shooter. And then it's time for Republicans to explain that the most important thing, now, is to "protect the Second Amendment." That's the first thing Senator-Elect Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee said when asked about the newest outbreak of American mass murder in an appearance on Fox News this morning.

Senator-elect Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) made her priorities abundantly clear on Thursday morning when a Fox News anchor asked her for a reaction to the deadly mass shooting at bar in Thousand Oaks, California.

Asked by anchor Sandra Smith what America as a country can do to stop incidents like this one, the first thing Blackburn said was: “What we do is say, how do we make certain that we protect the Second Amendment and protect our citizens.”

The Tennessee Republican went on to say that “mental-health issues need to be addressed” before bringing up the issue of gun access specifically.

With the passage of the police deadly force initiative, state lawmakers stood poised Wednesday to join supporters and opponents of the measure in moving to enact a compromise bill agreeable to all of them.

Voters gave strong support in Tuesday’s election to Initiative 940, which removes language from state law that made it almost impossible to prosecute law-enforcement officers believed to have misused deadly force. It also requires statewide training of police in de-escalation techniques and dealing with people in crisis.

"The American people deserve real action to end the daily epidemic of gun violence that is stealing the lives of our children on campuses, in places of worship and on our streets," said Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic leader who is running for a second stint as House speaker.

Pelosi vowed to push for a range of actions to stem gun violence, including restrictions on high-capacity magazines and a measure allowing temporary removal of guns from people deemed an imminent risk to themselves or others.

Earlier this year, following the tragic events in Parkland, Florida, I introduced legislation (Senate Bill 17) to establish the Pennsylvania Assault Weapons Ban. Military-grade weapons have no place in civilian life and are unnecessary for self-defense. These guns were made to kill people quickly and efficiently. Proven once again on Saturday, Oct. 27.

Gun control proponents like Gavin Newsom, California’s incoming governor, are irrationally committed to passing more and more laws that just do not prevent violent people from doing evil things. Indeed, he and other anti-gun advocates are the embodiment of insanity, doing the same things over and over again while expecting different results. They make innocent people more and more defenseless and then feign shock when their policies result in predictable and tragic outcomes.
 

Despite post-Parkland surge in youth vote, student activists largely fail to oust pro-gun candidates in midterms

In the months that followed February’s mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida, student survivors launched a large-scale campaign to encourage youth voter turnout — and to knock pro-gun lawmakers out of power.

The success of those young people on Election Day, however, is open to debate. While Parkland activists played a role in encouraging a surge in youth voter turnout on Tuesday, their central issue — gun control — didn’t fare well, including in Florida.

Bureaucrats Call for Gutting Second Amendment to Save Us From Murder

The simple and undeniable fact is that there is no constitutional authority given to the federal government to restrict purchase of firearms, ammunition, or component parts. In fact, the Second Amendment explicitly proscribes any attempt by the federal government to infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms.

Therefore, any attempt to curtail the right of civilians to own and use weapons — of any sort — is an act of tyranny, no matter how “reasonable” the supporters try to make it sound.

Besides, reasonable people understand that the ready availability of guns is no more responsible for any armed massacre than an all-you-can-eat buffet is responsible for obesity.
 

WA: Second Amendment Foundation: Loopholes aplenty with I-1639

The Second Amendment Foundation, as well as the NRA, will be challenging I-1639 in the coming months. This announced by founder Alan Gottlieb on The Todd Herman Show Wednesday.

I-1639, which Washington voters approved 60 to 40 percent, is billed as prohibiting the sale of firearms between a licensed gun dealer and anyone under the age of 21. Gottlieb says there are ways around the law.

“It’s written in a way that puts a chilling effect on gun ownership, but quite frankly, it’s unenforceable,” Gottlieb said. “There’s a giant loophole in this law. If they go to Oregon or Idaho, they can bring [a rifle] back. It’s totally legal. They just can’t buy it in Washington state.”

Macon County will soon be sending a message to all members of the General Assembly: Don't pass stricter gun laws.

The county board on Thursday approved a resolution expressing its opposition to restrictions that could interfere with Second Amendment rights, though officials acknowledged the measure as more of a signal than anything enforceable. The move follows similar steps taken by dozens of downstate counties this year to signal support for gun rights.

Medical marijuana may have been legalized in Missouri, but those who opt to take advantage will be jeopardizing their Second Amendment right to buy and possess a gun.

Under federal law, Missouri residents won't legally be able to have a license for medical marijuana and possess a firearm at the same time, even though voters overwhelmingly added Amendment 2 to the Missouri Constitution on Tuesday.
