A Customs and Border Protection officer has been charged with the Thanksgiving Day murder of his wife.

Dudley Bernard, 40, was taken into custody Nov. 28 after allegedly shooting his wife Chauntelle multiple times in the head at their League City, Texas, home shortly after he called 911 to report that he was at the “corner and that he was done,” according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by PEOPLE.

Submitter's note: File under "only the police should have guns".
 

Have You Seen “Real” Gun Control?

I watched them on the news. I saw rich politicians with security details tell me to give up my money and my guns. They aren’t anti-gun. They are for corporate and government gun ownership, while they speak against private and personal gun ownership.

If you want me disarmed, then lead by example. If our streets are so safe, then give up your bodyguards.

Let him who is without a security detail cast the first vote for gun control.
 

MI: New legislation would expand universal background checks for all firearms

Legislators announced a bill package to expand universal background checks for guns to cover all types of firearms.

The bills were announced by Sens. Rosemary Bayer, Stephanie Chang and Jeremy Moss along with Reps. Robert Wittenberg, Brenda Carter and Jon Hoadley.

The senators say it would amend the current state law that only requires background checks for pistols. Instead, mandatory background checks for all types of firearms would be required.

“To keep our residents safe, we must update Michigan’s existing laws to reflect the changing society that we live in,” Sen. Bayer said in a press release.

A woman made a comment about self-defense after a fatal shooting early Saturday morning outside a home in Belleview, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said they were called to a home in the Belleview Ridge Estates neighborhood around 6:30 a.m. after a report of a shooting and found 34-year-old Jherod Styles dead near the residence.

A woman who was standing near the body said something about self-defense when investigators approached the scene, according to the report. Records don’t indicate whether that woman, whose name was not released, said she shot the man.
 

Supreme Court considering important gun rights case

Will the New York City gun owners suffer the same fate? Perhaps not. There is a little-known and rarely used exception to the standing requirement -- a judge-made exception -- that holds that if a dispute repeatedly comes to the Supreme Court or if lower federal courts are repeatedly misinterpreting a Supreme Court decision, the Supreme Court will hear an appeal to stop the repeated appeals or to correct lower court misunderstandings, even if there is no adversity between the parties.
 

Gun Industry Report: Almost 18 Million AR-15, AK Type Rifles In Circulation

The firearms industry trade association on Wednesday released a report on gun numbers in the U.S. and black rifles are “in.”

The report, compiled by the National Shooting Sports Foundation from data provided by federal regulators, estimated 422 million firearms of all types were produced or imported for the consumer market between 1986 and last year. This included more than 7 million guns in both 2017 and 2018 alone. Another big take away: an estimated 17,740,000 Modern Sporting Rifles are in private hands today.

The MSR term is used for popular semi-auto rifles such as the AR-15 and others.
 

Did New York City Just Punk SCOTUS on a Second Amendment Case?

French says he found SCOTUS's seeming disinterest "troubling," because as SCOTUSblog's Amy Howe put it, "Alito and Gorsuch were the only justices who spoke up as staunchly opposed to dismissing the case as moot," and two out of nine votes is a poor start at building a solid pro-2A ruling. In the meantime, absent a definitive decision from the Supremes, New York City is free to devise new restrictions on lawful gun owners -- and to impose years of legal expenses and uncertainty on Second Amendment advocates.
 

Can senseless gun regulations ever be constitutional?

That track record highlights a glaring problem the Supreme Court could address if it rejects the city’s mootness claim: More than a decade after the justices recognized that the Second Amendment imposes limits on gun control, lower courts routinely treat the right to keep and bear arms as a minor hindrance that can be overcome by the slightest excuse.

Monday, the Supreme Court heard its FIRST major gun rights case in nearly a decade [brought by NRA & NYSRPA] — in which GOA submitted an amicus brief challenging New York City’s near-prohibition on possessing or transporting handguns.

Regarding the Supreme Court case, our brief argued that New York City limits the right to keep arms only to certain Americans who meet requirements set by the city.

These American citizens who wish to exercise their Second Amendment right to own a firearm are subjected to invasive government screening, arbitrary waiting periods, and substantial fees.
 

VA: Overflow Crowd Turns Out in Blue County to Support Second Amendment

An overflow crowd of gun-rights supporters turned out on Tuesday evening to the Democratic-controlled Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting to push the locality to declare it would not help enforce unconstitutional gun laws.

The crowd exceeded the auditorium's 350-person seating capacity, and a few dozen people wearing "Guns Save Lives" stickers were left lining the walls. The vast majority came to support residents who requested that the northern Virginia county become a Second Amendment sanctuary, meaning it will refuse to enforce gun laws they consider unconstitutional.
 

VA: Virginia Democrats will allegedly start sweeping ban on legal guns

Virginia proposed a sweeping ban on numerous popular guns—just weeks after its residents voted and gave total control of the state’s Legislature to Democrats.

Sen. Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax) introduced the Senate Bill 16 (SB-16) to confiscate firearms from Virginians. The SB-16 will create a total ban on America’s most commonly owned rifle, the AR-15, besides numerous other rifles, pistols, and shotguns that Virginians use for hunting, target practice, and self-defense.
 

Here Is What House Democrats Call Reasonable Gun Control

Nowhere was this more evident than earlier this year when anti-gun advocates and members of Congress worked to pass two anti-gun bills through the House of Representatives. That fight involved what gun control supporters frequently claim is the most “reasonable” of all gun control laws, H.R. 8, the so-called “universal” background check bill.

However, as we pointed out at the time, there was nothing reasonable about a bill that would turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals for harmless conduct while doing nothing to stop the violent criminals who are actually responsible for the crimes often used to justify such laws.

The Orange County Board of Supervisors essentially adopted two resolutions Tuesday night related to possible statewide gun control legislation—one that satisfied the five board members, and then another that satisfied most of the 750 or more people crowded in and around the Taylor Education Administration Complex.

At a two-hour public comment session, dozens of speakers—many wearing blaze orange stickers reading “Guns Save Lives”—spoke in favor of Orange becoming the 32nd Virginia county to declare itself a “Second Amendment sanctuary.”

I don’t know how the Second Amendment case the Supreme Court heard this week will turn out, but I do know this: If the subject weren’t so serious, the case in its current posture, with substantial doubt about whether there is even a dispute left for the court to decide, would be downright funny. For a window into the dynamics of today’s Supreme Court, look no further than the transcript of the argument in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York.
 

FL: Florida bill would require gun owners to get safety training when renewing concealed carry license

A new bill requiring more training to carry concealed weapons in Florida isn't getting support from those who stand to benefit: The instructors.

Charlie Strickland has trained thousands over the 10 years he's been in business at Talon Range in Tallahassee. Florida House Bill 809 could boost those numbers.

If passed, gun owners would need safety training each time they renew a conceal carry permit, and they'd need to renew it every five years instead of seven.

George Zimmerman is suing the family of the teenager he shot nearly eight years ago, seeking more than $100 million from Trayvon Martin's parents, their attorney and others. Zimmerman claims he was the victim of a conspiracy, along with malicious prosecution and defamation.

Martin's family has responded with a statement saying there's no evidence to back Zimmerman's contentions that he was the victim of a conspiracy.

Hundreds chanted and called for the Virginia Beach City Council to declare the city a Second Amendment sanctuary on Tuesday night.

The meeting was so packed city hall reached capacity and many had to stay outside.

"People are just activated now. They don't want any more gun control and they're standing up and pushing back hard against this," said Philip Van Cleave, the president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League said.

People on opposite sides of Ohio’s gun control debate packed into a Statehouse committee room Tuesday to speak in support of two different bills.

One was Gov. Mike DeWine’s bill to curb gun violence like the mass shooting in Dayton by expanding civil commitment or pink slip laws, creating a voluntary background check system for private sales and increasing the penalties against people caught buying guns for others who can’t legally do so.

During one of his final meetings as a county supervisor, Supervisors Geary M. Higgins (R-Catoctin) on Tuesday led an unsuccessful effort to insert a statement about gun rights into the county’s agenda for the state legislature, a motion County Chairwoman Phyllis J. Randall (D-At Large) called a “tantrum” after another big election year for Democrats.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
