Stick With What's Tried and True in Self-Defense

We live in an era of instant gratification, and this can be a real pitfall for the defensive shooter. There is a great temptation to believe that people can quickly become adept at defensive shooting if they have a certain kind of gun, holster, ammo and other accessories. There is a further temptation to look askance at people who go their own way and don't follow whatever the popular trends might be.

In response, the woman told police she shot the man in self-defense, the Herald & Review said.

Zee Martín bought her first firearm — a shotgun — in the late 1970s. After her home near Springfield, Mo., was burglarized. Over the years, she began buying more firearms, eventually collecting handguns and participating in gun competitions. In fact, that’s how she met her second husband.

Martín has been a member of the NRA for decades. A little over a year ago, she joined another group — the United States Concealed Carry Association. The West Bend, Wis.-based group offers a similar product as the NRA, but the message is very different.
 

No Gov. Northam, Your Gun Ban is NOT Constitutional

As Virginia gun owners have shown their displeasure with Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s proposed attack on their rights in city and county meetings across the Old Dominion, Northam has been forced to answer questions about he and gun control financier Michael Bloomberg’s gun ban agenda. In doing so, the governor has proclaimed that he supports the Second Amendment and that his gun ban does not violate the U.S. Constitution. In truth, Northam’s proposed gun ban would violate the Second Amendment as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago.

About a quarter of blacks in America report owning a gun, according to a 2017 Pew Research study. When it comes to the Second Amendment, though, some black gun trainers and participants differ with some white gun owners in regards to "Stand Your Ground" laws.

Generally speaking, "Stand Your Ground" allows individuals to use deadly force to defend themselves without first attempting to retreat. Soon it could become the law of the land in Ohio.

The right to keep and bear arms is sacrosanct in our republic. We also recognize that self-defense is a natural right and an individual responsibility. It is our position that members of our Armed Forces should not be denied of these constitutional and natural rights simply because he or she finds himself or herself on a military installation.

“We also realize that there are unique issues dealt with by military commanders regarding the security of sensitive areas and maintaining good order and discipline.
 

Springfield Hellcat 9mm Pistol Tabletop and Range Video Review

The “wonder 9” single-stack 9mm pistols made a big splash in the industry. Suddenly 9x19mm power could be managed in a concealable pistol that neared the compactness of a .380. As that design caught on dozens of options flooded the market sometimes providing us with not one, but multiple offerings from our favorite makers. Unfortunately for manufacturers this lead to some stagnation. In a market of durable goods new purchases are more likely to be made because of personal preference, not need. It's up to the manufacturers to either change our preferences or create need.

Annual firearms purchases in October were up over 10%, with more than 1.1 million total sales, according to multiple reports.

Reports from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting (SAAF) used data from the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to estimate the number of guns sold nationally. SAAF said the firearms industry saw enough gains from August through October to make up for lower sales numbers from earlier in the year.

The Virginia National Guard is responding after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam stated that there could be consequences if laws aren’t followed in localities that have recently become Second Amendment sanctuaries.

“If we have constitutional laws on the books and law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books, then there are going to be some consequences but I’ll cross that bridge if and when we get to it,” said Northam on Thursday when asked about Second Amendment sanctuaries.

Let’s face it, Second Amendment supporters know what we want in the end: Our right to keep and bear arms respected by the federal government, and by all fifty states, in all American territories, and in the District of Columbia. We know where we are right now – in a situation where it is not respected. But how do we get to where we want to be from where we are? The answer, of course, is strategy and tactics.

It wasn’t on Thursday night’s agenda, but people in Staunton came out to share their Second Amendment concerns with city leaders at the regularly scheduled city council meeting.

An estimated 300 people filled council chambers and the first floor of City Hall in downtown Staunton on Thursday night – far more attendees than your average city council meeting, but significantly lower than the turnout of thousands at specially scheduled 'Second Amendment Sanctuary' hearings for local counties.

The plaintiffs list 11 legal remedies to adequately address the children's disabilities, including requiring gun dealers to install video recording systems to discourage traffickers and buyers from using false identification; submit to a mandatory audit of the store’s inventory to help detect theft and trafficking; and to train employees and managers of gun shops to identify common signs of straw purchasing to avoid gun trafficking, according to the lawsuit.

Oklahoma Congressman Introduces Bill Making it Easier for Gun Owners to Carry Firearms Near Schools

Hern, a Republican from Oklahoma, is seeking to expand those same protections to residents of states that have adopted what are known as Constitutional Carry provisions. These laws allow for gun owners to carry concealed weapons without first applying for a permit. When state law authorizes permitless carry, the federal law requiring a permit in order to carry within school zones cannot be satisfied.

Currently, 40 states plus the District of Columbia have their own rules which go further than federal law and generally prohibit possession of firearms on school grounds, even for concealed carry permit holders, according to the gun-control group Giffords. Two other states leave such decisions up to individual schools.
