Travis Cooper of Kenai made his World Cup biathlon debut Thursday.

The 22-year-old finished 105th in a field of 109 in the men’s 20-kilometer individual race in Pokljuka, Slovenia.

Cooper shot cleanly in the second of four shooting stages but missed two shots in each of the others for a total of six misses. Each miss adds one minute to a racer’s time.

Five-time Olympic champion Martin Fourcade of France won the season-opening race with clean shooting and a time of 47 minutes, 9.2 seconds. Cooper’s time, including the penalties, put him 10:02 behind Fourcade. The top American, Sean Doherty of New Hampshire, was 4:28 back in 59th place.

I sat in on a training class where school staff learn to be armed first responders. They will protect their students and treat the injured until help arrives. That isn’t an academic or a theoretical problem. For these Colorado school teachers, school safety is personal and real.

They made a vow to themselves.

 

OH: Senators scale back Ohio gun rights bill

Facing a veto threat from Ohio Gov. John Kasich, state senators backed off a plan to pass a so-called "stand your ground" gun rights bill and voted 19-10 in favor of a vastly scaled-back bill.

Under current law, Ohioans have a duty to retreat before using deadly force when facing a serious threat in public. That won't change under the legislation -- unlike typical "stand your ground" laws, which remove that language.

Kasich has said he opposes "stand your ground" legislation and instead favors what he considers to be reasonable gun restrictions.

Jim Irvine of the Buckeye Firearms Association said the amended bill is a compromise that accomplishes multiple goals.
 

CA: Gun-Control Fails in California… and We All Lose

Sociologists and criminologists rendered their verdict. Gun-control in California doesn’t work. That should have been obvious in hindsight. Unfortunately, these failed laws will probably not be rescinded by lawmakers nor be overturned by judges. Since Californians won’t change things at the ballot box, they are going to have to vote with their feet to restore their rights.

Some 200 of ranger stations are also up and running with only one ranger, he added, IRNA news agency reported on Thursday.

Elsewhere in his remarks Mohabbat Khani criticized the laws on carrying firearms for rangers saying that currently rangers are only allowed to use their weapon for self-defense otherwise they will be charged with manslaughter had they kill any poachers.

In other cases, as the law is restrictive, they will be either killed or seriously injured in armed conflicts with poachers, he regretted.

New Jersey bans firearm magazines that hold more than 10 rounds (except for retired cops). A Second Amendment violation? The Third Circuit says no; nobody needs more than two or three bullets for self-defense (except for retired cops). Dissent: "Intermediate scrutiny requires more concrete and specific proof before the government may restrict any constitutional right, period."
 

House Democrats Seek To Stop Lawmakers From Carrying Guns On Capital Hill

Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina said Democrats are trying to erode the Second Amendment by limiting lawmakers’ ability to carry a firearm for protection on Capitol Hill.

“We have to look at the words of Hawaiian [Democratic] Sen. [Mazie] Hirono this week that Democrats know and are smarter than their voters,” Duncan said on “Fox & Friends” Friday.

“They are trying to create a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. Since 1967 members of Congress have been able to carry firearms onto this Capitol Hill campus,” he continued.
 

Does The Right To Self-Defense Apply Against Agents Of The State?

Most people seem to subscribe to what I call the Special Immunity Thesis: the idea that the set of conditions under which it is permissible, in self-defense or defense of others, to deceive, lie to, sabotage, attack, or kill a government agent is much more stringently constrained than the set of conditions under which it is permissible to deceive, lie to, sabotage, attack, or kill a private civilian.

On the flip side, we have what I call the Moral Parity Thesis: the idea that, very simply, you have the same right of self-defense against government agents as you do against civilians.
 

OH: Ohio Gov. Kasich on new gun bill: 'It's very hard for me to support anything like this'

Ohio lawmakers then sent the bill to Kasich's desk Friday. Kasich wouldn’t say exactly what he plans to do, but it appears unlikely he’ll sign the bill. Kasich has 10 days, except for Sundays, to sign the bill, veto it or let it go into law without his signature.

It's not clear whether lawmakers would have the votes to override a veto.
 

FL: Fussner found not guilty of double murder

Fussner testified that the men had "rushed in" and in a panic he grabbed a gun off the table and fired it until it was empty. He admitted to investigators that the men had not said or done anything directly threatening, and he also admitted to shooting Julius twice in the back as he tried to flee.

Still, Fussner argued that he had shot because he believed he was in danger, and jurors returned a "not guilty" verdict in the shooting.

Fussner was represented by Assistant Public Defender Marci McCoy. Assistant State Attorney Mark Alderman prosecuted the case for the state. Judge Jan Shackelford presided.

On December 5th, the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, a group backed by out-of-state elites, announced it will pursue its most extreme anti-gun legislative agenda to date during the upcoming 2019 Washington Legislative Session. This comes less than one month after the Alliance for Gun Responsibility and Seattle tech-billionaires spent millions to pass Initiative 1639, which made the state’s gun control laws amongst the worst in nation.

Some of the most egregious restrictions in the Alliance for Gun Responsibility’s 2019 agenda includes the following:

Breanna Sullivan was acquitted of a voluntary manslaughter charge this week, more than a year after shooting her husband dead in front of her daughter.

She sat down only with 13News Now to discuss the feeling she calls relieving, but not one of joy.

"Everyone's like 'You're free, you're out of jail. You got a happy ending,’” said Sullivan. “This isn't a happy ending, this is the best possible outcome."

After a lifetime of shooting and handling firearms, mostly handguns, I’ve learned a number of things about the sport, or profession, depending on how the gun is used. One of the lessons I’ve learned is, when it comes to various techniques regarding the proper way to shoot a handgun, opinions are as plentiful as grains of sand on Miami beach. Over the years of shooting and instructing, I’ve seen some good techniques, bad techniques and downright ridiculous techniques.

On December 6th, the Ohio state House of Representatives passed Substitute House Bill 228 by a vote of 59 – 21. It now heads to Governor John Kasich’s desk for his signature. While the legislation was amended, Sub. HB 228 still contains important self-defense protections for the Second Amendment and Ohio’s gun owners. It is important that you please contact Gov. Kasich and urge him to sign HB 228 into law.

Gun grabbers always claim that the newest infringement on the God-given right to self-defense protected by the Second Amendment is in the interest of “public safety” and is not another step down the slippery slope toward gun confiscation and disarming America.

Don’t believe them.

In a split decision, a three judge panel at the Third Circuit Court of Appeals effectively ruled the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights is a second-rate right, not entitled to the full protections of other enumerated rights. The opinion was filed on 5 December, 2018. The case is Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, Inc. v. Attorney General New Jersey, No. 18-3170 (3rd Cir. 2018).

In response to TOMS shoes founder Blake Mycoskie announcing on "The Tonight Show" that his company is donating $5 million to anti-gun violence groups, Odessa-based AR-15 maker Adams Arms is offering a free 30-round AR 15 magazine to anyone who sends in a pair of TOMS shoes.

Jens Krogh, vice president of sales and marketing for Adams Arms, said the company has launched what it's calling its Mags for TOMS campaign "to send a message that gun owners will not sit by idle and allow the continued degradation of the rights of the American people."
 

‘‘I Am the ‘Good Guy With a Gun’’’: Black Gun Owners Reject Stereotypes, Demand Respect

Kyle Doheny and Michael Anderson are licensed gun owners who live in different states but have a few things in common. Both are black men who have worked in public safety or national defense. And both say that when they carry their guns, some people don’t respect their Second Amendment rights.

The two were among the more than 100 people who responded when we asked black gun owners to tell us about their interactions with law enforcement, other authorities and the general public.

Since July, at least three black men in the United States have been shot by police in separate incidents while trying, according to witnesses, to stop an active shooting.
