"Yesterday's shootings are another tragic reminder that we have far more work to do to put in place commonsense gun safety laws and root out the pervasive patterns of hatred and violence in our society," he continued.

Submitter's note:

Dancing in the blood of the victims. Hypocrisy from someone that is protected 24/7 by gun toting body guards.

Guns for me, but not for thee.

A Senate committee gave unanimous approval Wednesday to a bill aiming to protect Wyoming residents against potential federal overreach on gun regulations, despite some concerns from law enforcement officials regarding potential unintended effects of the legislation.

Titled the “Second Amendment Preservation Act,” Senate File 81 would deem invalid any federal laws or orders, including any gun taxes, confiscations, transfers or other regulations, that infringe on Wyoming residents’ ability to bear arms.

The Burrillville Town Council has officially registered its opposition to 2021 gun control legislation up for debate before the Rhode Island General Assembly.

"I believe that this is nothing but an outright assault on our Second Amendment rights," said council president Donald Fox during a March 10 meeting where his "Resolution of the Town of Burrillville" against a slew of proposed new state gun laws gained unanimous support from the seven-member council.

Yesterday, Governor Spencer Cox signed two more self-defense bills, for a total of three that he has signed into law in 2021, including permitless carry that he signed in February.

House Bill 227, sponsored by Representative Karianne Lisonbee (R-14), improves Utah's self-defense laws by defining justifiable use of force, and establishing procedures for the applicability of the defense. Citizens who suffer the misfortune of having to use force to defend themselves and others should not be victimized a second time by the judicial system.

A 43-year-old Battle Creek man died early Wednesday after police said he was stabbed by his fiance's son.

Christopher Dykstra was pronounced dead in the driveway of his home at 374 Main St. after officers were called at 12:31 a.m.

The 18-year-old son of Dykstra's fiance was found at the scene and questioned by police, who said he admitted he stabbed Dykstra. He was later released as detectives investigate a possible self-defense homicide, according to Detective Sgt. Joel Case.
 

SC: Open Carry Bill Passes Critical Vote

Today, the House voted 82-33 to advance House Bill 3094 after second reading. HB 3094 still faces a third reading before the House can vote to pass it. The progress so far has been made possible by Rep. Bobby Cox showing his strong leadership and unwavering commitment to the Second Amendment by guiding this bill. Substantial amendments were unnecessary, as a standalone constitutional carry bill is also working its way through the legislative process and, in a press conference today, pro-gun lawmakers affirmed their commitment to pass it.
 

House Renews Landmark Domestic Violence Bill, but Obstacles Wait in Senate

Republicans were just as angry over the proposed closing of the so-called boyfriend loophole. While existing federal law forbids people convicted of domestic violence against a current or former spouse to buy or own a firearm, the new legislation would extend the prohibition to those convicted of abusing, assaulting or stalking a dating partner, or to those under a court restraining order.

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republican of Georgia, pushed unsuccessfully for amendments that would allow the government to fund firearm training and self-defense classes for women.

Republicans in the Iowa House have passed a bill that would let Iowans buy guns and carry concealed weapons without getting a state permit to do so. House Republican Leader Matt Windschitl said the bill is for “Iowa’s Second Amendment community.”

“Those are my people. Those are House Republicans’ people…It’s those same people who saw fit to give us a 59-seat majority. It’s those same people whose basic human rights we are trying to respect and uphold with the advancement of this legislation,” Windschitl said shortly after 10 p.m. “I’ve been fighting for this bill ever since I got down here and, by God, we’re going to get it passed tonight.”

SB-1884 Preemption of Firearms & Ammunition by Sen. Ray Rodrigues (R) -- Stops local governments and state agencies who willfully violate the firearms preemption law from forcing people to sue them over violations then withdrawing illegal ordinances or regulations once suit is filed in order to make the lawsuit moot. Local Governments do this intentionally to avoid the law that makes them pay damages and attorney fees when sued to protect citizen rights.

Ocean State NRA members will have to dial into the Statehouse this year if they want to make their voice heard on a full slate of gun bills scheduled for Friday. This agenda is the worst of the worst and includes almost two dozen gun bills.

The House Judiciary Committee will hear the following bills on Friday, March 19 at 1 p.m.:

H.5381, by Rep. Anastasia Williams, will require purchasers to sign a release of their medical records. The price of exercising your constitutional rights is sacrificing your privacy.
 

WI: Rittenhouse, Grosskreutz Hearings, Trial Delayed until November, 2021

On 10 March 2021, there was a pre-trial hearing on the Kyle Rittenhouse self-defense case in Kenosha County. Judge Schroeder of Kenosha presided over the hearing with his usual competency. DA Thomas Binger seemed considerably subdued compared to his demeanor on 11 February, when Judge Schroeder had to repeatedly correct him on the law, bond procedure, and the facts.

The hearing took a little over four minutes. There were no contentious outbreaks. Conspicuously absent was Anthony Huber’s father, John Huber, who smeared Rittenhouse in the hearing on 11 February, and brazenly gave the middle finger salute to Judge Schroeder; and Steve Art, the attorney for John Huber, from the Chicago office of Loevy and Loevy.

He did, first by depriving New Yorkers of their First Amendment rights to dissent or debate about gun rights and, more importantly, the opportunity to vote against Cuomo's obvious tyranny. That same night, against the will of the state's majority, the thug deprived the people of their Second Amendment rights by outlawing common firearms, which women home alone can no longer use to defend themselves and their children — meaning against the violent perps not earlier prosecuted for gun crimes by Cuomo's staff. These are the ones who would kick in their rear doors wearing FORWARD! lapel pins.
 

MT: New Law in Montana Will Allow Students to Carry Firearms on Public College Campuses

It’s a bit surprising this law wasn’t already on the books in Montana but better late than never.

Campus Reform reports:

Concealed carry will soon be allowed on campuses in this state

A new Montana law signed by Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte in February will allow students at public colleges to possess firearms on campus when it takes effect on June 1.

The bill allows college students to possess firearms without a permit, so long as they have the “express permission” of their roommate(s). Discharging the firearm, or even pointing it at another person, is still illegal, except when done in self-defense.

North Dakota legislators have introduced a collection of bills this session aimed at preserving gun rights in North Dakota, with some saying they fear new control measures from the Biden Administration.

One measure, HCR 3006, urges the federal government to protect Second Amendment rights. The resolution states any restriction on purchases or possession of firearms or ammunition, including excessive taxes or fees, would violate the U.S. Constitution. Rep. Jeffery Magrum, R-Hazelton, is a sponsor.

The Second Amendment Foundation is applauding a ruling by a Boulder, Colorado District Judge striking down a Boulder city ordinance that outlawed possession, sale or transfer of semi-automatic sporting rifles and magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

“This wasn’t our case,” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, “but it was the right decision by Judge Andrew Hartman. He ruled against the city ordinance because it violated Colorado’s state preemption law, which prohibits such local ordinances as the one in Boulder.”

The Iowa House has passed a bill allowing Iowans to carry and purchase firearms without a permit, sending the measure to the Senate for consideration.

It's the first time that a full chamber of the Iowa Legislature has passed such a measure, although gun rights advocates have pushed for years to remove the state's gun permit requirements.

The House passed the measure, House File 756, on a 60-37 vote Wednesday night after several hours of debate. Every Republican representative, as well as Democratic Rep. Wes Breckenridge, supported the bill, while all other Democrats were opposed. Similar legislation has passed through committee in the Iowa Senate but has not received a floor vote.
 

Gun Control Activists Aim to Dilute Then Remove 2nd Amendment Rights

With two sweeping gun control bills sent to the Senate, and the House expected to approve even more, gun control activists are spreading disinformation about gun violence, the use of firearms for self-protection, and even how to purchase them.

Although people may own firearms for hunting or target shooting, their primary purpose is self-defense. That’s why the founders included the Second Amendment guarantees to keep and bear arms.
 

Pepé Le Pew, struggling actor, took the roles he could get. Royals and racists take everything

In the course of reading up on the history of Le Pew, my favorite revelation had to do with how the cartoons were translated for French audiences: They had Le Pew speaking bad Italian.

I also learned Warner Brothers had earlier canceled Elmer Fudd’s rifle. I learned this the same week that I learned that in the pro-gun community, a Fudd is the name given to a gun supporter who specifically supports guns only for the purpose of hunting, not for self-defense.

I wish the idea of canceling cartoons had caught on when I was growing up. They could have canceled that horrible, abusive bird Woody Woodpecker in 1953, and spared me a lot of anguish.
 

TX: Republicans Push to Make Texas a 'Second Amendment Sanctuary State'

Filed earlier this month, a state House bill backed by Gov. Greg Abbott would turn Texas into a so-called Second Amendment sanctuary state. In other words, the bill, if passed, would forbid Texas state agencies and other bodies from enforcing new federal gun laws or rules, a proposal some advocacy groups have criticized.

The bill’s primary author, state Rep. Justin Holland, a Republican from Heath, said HB 2622 comes at a time when it’s necessary to “step up and protect our 2nd Amendment rights in Texas,” according to a press release.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The supposed quietude of a good mans allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them... — Thomas Paine, I Writings of Thomas Paine at 56 (1894).
