I am a junior in high school, and I regularly shoot guns, for target practice and hunting. Going to school can be hard because most kids don’t understand how I live. It can be uncomfortable to be a gun-owning teenager right now, when high schools have become the centers of gun control protests. But there are many of us around the country.
 

Report: FL Officials Wanted Rampage Suspect ‘Forcibly Committed’

The Associated Press and several other news agencies are reporting that newly-revealed documents show that some school officials and a sheriff’s deputy had recommended that accused school shooting rampage suspect Nikolas Cruz be “forcibly committed” in 2016, but those concerns were never acted upon.

Instead, for more than a month since the shooting, the gun control lobby has helped galvanize high school students and exploited their fears to push an anti-gun agenda, and consciously helped shift responsibility to gun owners and the Second Amendment. They’ve had plenty of help from the national media.

When someone says the justice system is enough to protect you, point this Kentucky incident as evidence that a protective order sometimes isn’t enough. Just weeks after his arrest led to the issuance of an order to stay away from his ex-wife, the man tried to break into her home. After the miscreant broke the glass on the front door and started fiddling with the lock, his ex-wife yelled through the door to stop or her boyfriend would shoot. The ex-husband paid the threat no mind, and was fatally shot. Police were investigating, but no charges have been filed in what appeared to be an act of self-defense.

A Utah gun-rights advocate is criticizing a move by a national supermarket chain — which operates Smith’s Food and Drug stores across Utah — to take magazines featuring so-called “assault rifles” off its news racks. “It’s an ill-conceived idea to restrict the First Amendment,” Clark Aposhian, chairman of the Utah Shooting Sports Council, said Monday.

A New York Democratic congressman is being accused of promoting violence against President Trump after suggesting during a town hall that citizens may have to take up arms against the president if he doesn’t follow the law. “I mean, this is where the Second Amendment comes in quite frankly, because you know, what if the president was to ignore the courts? What would you do? What would we do?” Rep. Tom Suozzi, D-N.Y., said during a March 12 Q&A session with constituents in Huntington, on Long Island.

Monday, dozens of Second Amendment activists crowded the Las Cruces City Hall ahead of the vote. The resolution that was in question, to "better ensure the safety of students in Las Cruces schools," will not have any immediate effect on City policy. It was proposed by City Councilman Greg Smith, who represents district two.

Gov. Doug Ducey wants to close some reporting loopholes when background checks are done on gun buyers, but has no interest in requiring every firearm sale go through that system. In what the governor’s staff billed Monday as a comprehensive plan designed to deal with gun violence, Ducey is proposing to allow police to immediately take a firearm from someone they have “probable cause” to believe is a danger to self or others. A judge would have to hold a hearing within 24 hours to determine whether the person needs treatment.

Everytown For Gun Safety, an anti-gun activist group known for posting all kinds of false stats about gun violence in an effort to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment rights, tweeted a Newsweek article alleging that arming teachers would somehow make minority children in urban schools "less safe." Perhaps even more ridiculous than the premise of the article was the photo along with it: a gun, with a magazine that's loaded...backwards.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a constitutional challenge to the death penalty Monday, though four justices wrote separately to criticize Arizona’s capital sentencing process, which they strongly suggested is unconstitutional. Though the group agreed that the court should not hear the case, the statement reflects a continued effort to narrow the application of capital punishment to all but the most heinous crimes.

How the Obama Administration Made it Easier For Criminals to Get Guns

Acting FBI Deputy Director Andrew Bowdich testified last week that the Obama administration gave the order to purge more than 500,000 names from the background check database. The database, titled the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, is used to stop people with certain criminal convictions or open arrest warrants from buying guns. Speaking before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Bowdich said, “It was the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel that reviewed the law and believed that it needed to be interpreted so that if someone was a fugitive in a state, there had to be indications that they had crossed state lines.”

After weeks of irresponsible and false attacks on Second Amendment supporters for educating uninformed teenagers, New Jersey’s anti-Constitution mafia is now targeting high school students for lawful behavior off-campus. Two students at Lacey Township High School were placed on 5 days of suspension, plus Saturday suspension, for posting pictures on social media of firearms with the caption of “fun day at the range,” according to NJ101.5. Apparently sharing a photo from a shooting range on social media disrupted the “school climate,” one of the students facing punishment said. Not only are they after the Second Amendment, they are also after the First Amendment.
