I’m a High School Senior. We Can Make Schools Safer Without Curbing Gun Rights.

The unjustifiable targeting of young people’s rights aside, 18-year-olds in Florida now can be forced to fight for their country abroad with a gun while being unable to protect themselves with one at home. Maybe it’s just me, but that level of inconsistency should not be permitted in America.

Realistically, raising the minimum age at which it is legal to purchase a rifle, as Florida now has done, will not reduce the frequency of school shootings in any substantial way. Although I doubt that reality will stop political propagandists from pretending it will.
 

The Contradiction of Being a Young Adult

A young woman is considered an adult at 18 years of age. She can act without her parents approval. She can-

get a job
rent an apartment
get a driver’s license and buy a car
travel anywhere she wants
...
become a teacher in Florida at 18
become a police officer in Florida at 19
...
get married
have children
..because those are the things that young adults do.

Yet we tell her that she is too young to own a firearm to defend her family even though young adults are the most likely victims of violent crime.
And if she does own a gun, then we’ll try her in court as an adult.

Two major anti-social justice bills worked their way through the Wyoming Legislature before its session concluded last week. Governor Matt Mead vetoed one and signed the other into law. “Stand your ground-two,” which became law, is similar to the Florida statute that helped George Zimmerman to claim self-defense for the 2012 murder of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American.
 

AZ: A gun Tombstone Mayor, Sierra Vista gun shop owner weigh in on debate over gun reform debate

As the battle over gun reform continues, the Mayor of "America's Second Amendment City," and a Sierra Vista gun shop owner are weighing in.

"Tombstone and guns are synonymous," Mayor Dusty Escapule said.

He proclaimed Tombstone as "America's Second Amendment City," about a year ago. Guns run deep in the city's history, and are an integral part of the culture. He's a firm believer in the idea that American citizens have the right to bear arms.
 

Learn the facts about 2nd Amendment -- it isn't without limits

The Court noted that the above list of legal regulations was not exhaustive and that the Second Amendment is consistent with laws banning "dangerous and unusual weapons" and firearms that are most useful in military service.

It is clear that the Second Amendment legally protects both gun rights and gun controls to protect public safety. Both are constitutional protections.

Until 2008, most legal scholars had regarded the Second Amendment to be about state militias rather than about an individual right. The right to bear arms has not historically depended upon the Second Amendment because almost all state constitutions guarantee the right to bear arms for self defense.
 

ID: NRA-backed self-defense bill becomes law in Idaho

"Until we can predict where and when a violent crime will occur we must rely upon our fundamental, individual rights as Americans to defend ourselves and our loved ones," said NRA State Liaison Keely Hopkins. "This law recognizes that right and places the burden of proof upon the criminal instead of the victim."

SB 1313 clarifies a law-abiding citizen’s right to stand their ground when protecting themselves or their families. It also establishes a legal presumption that breaking into a home is sufficient cause for self-defense.

A Harris County man may not receive charges in the suspected shooting death of his father.

According to detectives with the Harris County Sheriff's Office, a 23-year-old man reportedly shot and killed his dad in a case of self-defense.

At about 3 p.m. Tuesday, authorities responded to the 16900 block of Woodburn Drive, where they say the 47-year-old man was beating his wife and threatened to shoot her when his son stepped into her rescue.

"We want a fair hearing for H.B. 10 by the committee. There is no reason for civilians to have access to semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15," said gun owner Chris Moser of Atlanta. "They're not needed for self-defense. They're not needed for hunting. Banning these weapons wouldn't be an infringement on the Second Amendment."

The Williamsburg County GOP met Thursday, March 15, at Brown’s Bar-B-Que, where they listened to a representative from the NRA. Trey Ramsey, Grassroots Field Coordinator, spoke about the Second Amendment, the organization’s programs, initiatives, and legislation.

The NRA provides hunter education and civilian firearms education programs such as NRA’s Refuse To Be A Victim, which teaches tips and techniques to be alerted to dangerous situations and to avoid becoming a victim and National School Shield, an initiative focused on improving school security.
 

WA: Seattle pursues gun laws where it can — starting with safe storage

Inside Harborview Medical Center — often the final destination for victims of gun violence — Durkan and Seattle City Councilmember Lorena González announced Wednesday they would require gun owners to lock up their weapons whenever left in a car or home. The announcement, released before a backdrop of doctors, community members and police (including Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best), is more of a nudge than a shove in the direction of gun control, a necessary constraint to avoid losing in court. But in the wake of the Parkland school shooting and amid an unprecedented student-led response to gun violence, the proposals keep momentum behind newfound ambition for slowing the country's death count by bullet.

Safer schools and gun reform are long overdue, says Maggie Lea.

“I think most can agree it can’t go on like this without change,” wrote the member of the Bishop’s Committee at Christ Memorial Episcopal Church in Kilauea, which is hosting Saturday’s North Shore March for Our Lives sign waving demonstration.

A large gathering is expected 10 a.m. to noon at the intersection near the Lihue Airport.

It is a sibling march to the national March for Our Lives movement started by the survivors of last month’s shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida that claimed 17 lives. Hundreds of rallies are scheduled across the country.

When a defenseless puppy dies on an airplane, Congress is almost instantly roused to action. Why then, are our legislators so reluctant to provide the same level of care and concern for our children, when we have already lost so many to gun violence? How many mass shootings will it take before we see some meaningful legislation that could begin to turn the tide and make our schools, theaters, malls, and other public places safer?
 

VT: Vermont Gun Owners

You won’t find Vermont gun owners bullying even though they could if they wanted to, you won’t find them threatening even though they could if they wanted to. The reason is simple; they never owned their guns to hurt any human being, they didn’t own their guns to overthrow the government, or cause fear in some old ladies heart and certainly not to ever harm any children. They own their guns out of a noble, honorable and indeed righteous motive to follow in the footsteps of their fathers and grandfathers to protect those they love without relying on others and to ensure that their freedom – the freedom we enjoy so well – will be passed on to their children and their children’s children.
 

NC: Safe schools, not gun control, is priority -- there’s a distinction

We recently published a wire-service editorial that was quite skeptical of “arming teachers.” But that’s a very broad idea. No, we don’t want teachers packing heat. But is it unreasonable -- with what we’ve been through at Parkland and Sandy Hook and Virginia Tech and Columbine -- for school personnel to have strictly controlled access to some sort of means of self-defense?

One of the more reasonable and promising ideas we’ve heard since this most recent debate began is giving school personnel access to highly potent but non-lethal tactical pepper spray.
 

Fix NICS Bill Would Help Block Gun Sales to Peaceful People

The broader problem with Fix NICS is that it aims to improve a system that blocks gun sales to people based on criteria that are unfairly and irrationally broad. Those people include millions of Americans who have never shown any violent tendencies.

Congress has decreed that any felony, no matter how long ago it was committed and regardless of whether it involved violence, is enough to strip someone of the fundamental right to armed self-defense. So is any record of court-mandated psychiatric treatment, even if the involuntary patient never posed a threat to anyone else; unlawful use of controlled substances, including taking medication prescribed for a relative and smoking pot in states where it's legal;

The March For Our Lives is being planned in communities across the country and in the Tampa Bay region, where marches are set to take place in Tampa and St. Petersburg.

But where earlier local demonstrations attracted rag-tag groups with vulgar banners about the NRA, the students who held a news conference at Plant High on Wednesday were measured in their statements.

They said they're not against the Second Amendment right to bear arms, or anyone's right to own a weapon for self-defense.
 

LA: The Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus Is Into Gun-Grabbing In This Year’s Legislative Session

Common sense, after all, dictates that of all the people who need guns it’s probably the law-abiding black homeowner living in a dangerous neighborhood who is most justified in going around accoutered. And yet that homeowner is represented by people who would leave him or her at the mercy of crooks who don’t obey gun laws and/or cops who see him or her as a potential criminal.

You would think these things would weigh on the conscience of members of the Black Caucus in advance of a legislative session like this one, and you would be wrong. Because members of that caucus have filed a veritable orgy of gun-grabbing bills for this session, all of them apparently taking inspiration if not direction from national gun-grabbing groups.

Crystal Gross, arrested in connection with the stabbing death of Amir Bey, will not face charges.

Prosecutors say this was a case of self defense. Gross has marks on her body they say are consistent with a physical altercation.

Authorities say that moments before the incident, Amir Bey had pulled his vehicle over. Gross got out and ran into a nearby field where she fell into the mud. Her clothing at time of a police interview was consistent with that. Gross also had hair missing.
 

A gun debate compromise: let cities and rural areas pass different laws

The great American gun debate has long been conducted at the national level — as we will see, once again, at Saturday’s March for Our Lives event in Washington, DC — but in many ways, it is also deeply rooted in local experiences.

Ed.: Antis want a free hand to take guns from inner-city minorities, rather than respect their right to bear arms.
