California politicians are busy playing politics with people’s lives again. As usual, particularly in California, their new proposed laws are sure to be a political success, but a horrible failure for the ordinary citizen. These Socialist Politicians failed in their attempt to outlaw gun directly. Today they are regulating firearms out of existence in California.

The resident heard repeated knocking at her door, and saw a man she did not know when she looked through the peephole.

She became concerned and hid in a closet in her bedroom with a .357 revolver.

While she was on the phone with 911, the intruder entered her apartment.

Moments later, the victim came face to face with Trenton Hartman as he opened the closet door.

She fired one shot in self defense and Hartman ran away.

Hartman, 24, went to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

Did I mention there are scads of people salivating at the idea of seeing the Heller ruling overturned?

We’re literally just one justice away from that—whether it’s Garland or anyone else the president chooses.

Here’s the deal, people. It’s really easy to just point to the Second Amendment and say, “SEE? It’s there. End of discussion.”

And yes, technically, it really is that simple.

But, since people have spent years reading things into the Constitution that aren’t there—we have to go deeper.
 

Justice: For Or Against The Second Amendment & Judge Garland

Many news sources are turning this matter into a major spectacle – castigating the U.S. Senate for allegedly dragging its feet in handling this nomination. But, there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that requires the U.S. Senate to do anything. It need not proffer its advice and consent; and, if it does not, then the appointment cannot be made. In this instance the U.S. Senate has good reason not to proffer its advice and consent.
 

First Amendment Under Attack, In Chicago Where The Second Amendment Is Trampled

At the moment the public can only speculate as to the root cause for the disruption. One thing is certain, though. Our Bill of Rights is under attack and has been under incessant assault for many years. Our Second Amendment “right of the people to keep and bear arms” has, for many years, slowly and systematically suffered erosion through Congressional enactments and State action. If the leading Democratic Party contender for the Office of U.S. President gets the nod and ultimately secures the Oval Office, the right of the people to keep and bear arms will likely cease to exist except as a short footnote in the history texts. And, what shall become of other fundamental rights and liberties of the People?
 

CO: Hillary Clinton changes her approach on gun control
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

So Clinton is taking a different approach this time: She’s endorsed the gun control measures sought in vain by Obama after the Sandy Hook massacre, including universal background checks; and she’s slammed Bernie Sanders for supporting legislation passed in 2005 giving firearms manufacturers protection from some lawsuits.

That shift is notable particularly because of her husband’s experience in the White House challenging the NRA. After winning passage of a federal ban on assault weapons, Bill Clinton saw his party wiped out in the 1994 elections, giving Republicans control of the House for the first time in 40 years. Democrats suffered a net loss of 54 seats; the then-president attributed 20 of those defeats to the gun issue.

Fox 4 reports that the Whataburger customer was an off-duty security guard who had his pistol with him. The men allegedly approached him in the parking lot while he was eating and he shot and killed one. The second supsect fled.

The San Antonio Express reports that police confirmed this scenario in an email, writing, “Two suspects approached the armed security guard at around 1:00 a.m. Thursday at the Whatburger location at 5500 Lemmon Avenue in Dallas. At least one of the suspects tried to rob the guard at gunpoint” and was subsequently shot dead.

A pro-Second Amendment bill backed by the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) is awaiting final action in the Mississippi Senate after passing the House and out of Senate Committee. The bill, HB 786, expands existing permitless carry laws and lets churches designate congregation members who have enhanced carry permits or a law enforcement or military background to participate in a security plan. NRA-ILA is mobilizing support among its Mississippi members and supporters in an effort to pass the measure through the state Senate.

Last year, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015, known as H.R. 402, was introduced in the House of Representatives. Under H.R. 402, the federal criminal code would be amended, allowing a person who has a valid government-issued ID and a concealed carry permit from one state would be allowed to possess, transport, ship and receive firearms in every other state.

Two Fridays ago, I awoke to the news of another shooting.

In the early morning hours of March 11, two men got into an argument at the Wooden Nickel Pub on Tucker Norcross Road in DeKalb.

The younger man, a 20-year-old with a history of arrests and violent behavior, shot 43-year-old Melvin James Dodson, described as a friendly regular who may have had a few too many. Dodson would later die from his injuries.

Exposing Judge Merrick’s Anti-gun Bias

Merrick Brian Garland (shown), nominated by President Obama on Wednesday to fill the vacancy left on the Supreme Court with the untimely passing of Antonin Scalia, has left footprints. They tell of a judge who isn’t interested in supporting the rights America’s citizens enjoy under the Second Amendment.

In 2007, Garland voted to rescind a D.C. Circuit court’s decision that invalidated Washington D.C.’s strict ban against handgun ownership. That law, which even prohibited guns citizens might keep at home for self-defense, was struck down by a three-judge panel, but Garland voted to reconsider the ruling. He was joined by Judge David Tatel, known for his anti-gun bias.

A few conservative groups and figures have already attacked Garland for his position on guns since his nomination. We’re putting O’Reilly’s specific claim that Garland voted "to keep guns away from private citizens" on the Truth-O-Meter.

The Vulnerability Index: What’s Your VX On A College Campus?

Amanda Collins had taken every lawful precaution when she was raped in 2007 on the campus of the University of Las Vegas, Reno. Since then, she has advocated for the right of women to carry a gun on campus. Only 21 states still ban campus carry.

However, opponents are alarmed at the idea of “mixing students, beer and guns.” They claim debate will be stifled and faculty intimidated.

Are CCW holders really a bigger threat than rapists? Just what is your VX on campus … especially if you’re a woman?

In this week’s episode, we cover the kickoff of the 2016 legislative session. It’s a short, ten-week session, but one that has already been filled with attempts to implement universal background checks, gut the permit system, and ban lead ammunition.

We also spend some time talking about the long game that groups like Everytown are playing right now in the state – and how they hope to achieve long-term victory, greatly diminishing your Second Amendment rights. We’ll talk a bit about how and why we need to dramatically adjust our game plan here in Minnesota to address the rising threats from out of state interests.

The Seattle Times endorsed Sanders several days ago, along with Republican John Kasich. On Wednesday, the newspaper editorialized in favor of hearings on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court. Gun rights advocates, including Bellevue’s Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, say Garland has an anti-gun history on the bench.

After all, it can be hard to decipher who thinks what in today’s political climate, where debates are chaotic, speeches get complex and you can’t believe everything you read on social media.

For the breakdown below, we used the opinions each presidential hopeful has posted on their respective websites and summed them up in one sentence. They may have said something else prior to or after posting their statement, so it’s best to delve into the issues you care about a little more.

The NRA Is Rewriting Fairy Tales, So Now Hansel And Gretel Have Guns

The NRA has always been big on fairy tales–you know, like the one about how background checks are totally unnecessary, or how men who are convicted of domestic violence should totally be allowed to have guns, or the fun way they like to pretend that gun’s kept in the home are not many times more likely to be used in a homicide, suicide, accidental shooting than in self-defense! Not to mention insisting that guns keep us safe while states with higher gun ownership rates also have much higher gun homicide rates than states with lower gun ownership rates. SO MANY FAIRY TALES.
