MI: Group Pushes to Legalize Stun Guns
Submitted by: Corey Salo

A group that advocates for the safety of women and the elderly is pushing to legalize stun guns in Michigan for people who are at least 21.

Damsel in Defense, an Idaho-based international organization, wants to give them a non-lethal line of defense.

Rep. Michele Hoitenga, R- Manton, recently introduced a bill to allow stun guns to be available for sale, possession, and use to the public 21 and older.

Tasers have been legal in Michigan since 2012. But stun guns are different from tasers. Unlike a taser, a stun gun is only effective when it comes in contact with the skin, so it can only be used when in close proximity to the offender. Tasers are able to shoot electricity at the target from a large distance.

Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear about it in the news. Instructor Robyn Street joins host Rob Morse to talk about four recent examples.
-Are you armed at work on a Friday evening?
-Do you have a firearm nearby when you sleep at night?
-Are you armed in your home at 9 in the morning?
-Are you armed as you stand on your back porch early in the evening?

These gun owners survived a lethal threat to themselves and their family. What would you do in their place?

Cynthia Coyne, a Barrington Democrat, has introduced a bill that would make it illegal to “manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer, or receive” any gun that can’t be detected by common airport screenings, or one that is made entirely though 3D printing.

Wildcat cartridges, sometimes referred to as simply “wildcats,” are custom-designed cartridges – meaning they are not mass produced, but instead made by individual shooters. The purpose of a wildcat is the cultivation of some attribute not sufficiently present in a commercially available round. Wildcats aren’t great for law enforcement or military purposes, but they are great for hardcore shooting aficionados, handloaders looking to take things to the next level, and gunsmiths who want to homebrew ammunition for their homebrew weapons.

Almost nine months after the Parkland shooting, Ed Stack — the CEO of Dick's Sporting Goods — stood up in the audience of a New York Times conference. He got up to talk about restricting gun sales at his stores. He had done it many times before, but this time, he got personal. "I'm not embarrassed to say I'm viewed as a relatively tough guy," Stack said. "I wouldn't characterize myself as a crier. And that weekend, I watched those kids, and I watched those parents, and I hadn't cried as much since my mother passed away."

For the Oregon Legislature, it’s not a question of whether any firearms legislation will pass this session. It's really a question about what will pass. Gov. Kate Brown has made firearms legislation a priority. Democratic leadership, in the majority, is backing her up. Lawmakers also have ideas of their own. So do high school students from Lake Oswego.

During an interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, gun-control activist David Hogg claimed those who own AR-15s and similar rifles are not interested in self-defense but in hunting human beings. After telling viewers that Americans need to find unity in addressing gun violence, Hogg was asked about his recent efforts to ban certain kinds of semiautomatic firearms at the state level. He said he and other March for Our Lives activists had introduced a ballot initiative to ban so-called assault weapons in Florida. He said those who own an AR-15, the most popular rifle in the United States, want to hunt other people.
