Members of a guest panel at a Greenville Chamber of Commerce breakfast said Wednesday that after almost three complete months, the Texas “Open Carry” law has caused few, if any, problems.

Buddy Oxford with the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office, Brandon West with the Greenville Police Department, Steve Ramsey with the Sinclair-Ramsey Insurance Agency and former State Senator Bob Deuell all said they supported the open carry law which went into effect Jan. 1.

And they also said there hasn’t been any noticeable increase in the number of people taking advantage of the law.

“Even at Bass Pro Shop, I’ve never seen anyone open carry,” Deuell said.

A federal appeals court on Tuesday set up a potential new battle over gun control laws in Colorado after it sent a legal challenge back to a lower court to be dismissed.

Sheriffs from most of Colorado’s 64 counties, gun-rights groups, businesses and individuals sued the state over the gun control laws passed by the Democratic-controlled Legislature in 2013.

While most institutes of higher education across the country embrace the lie of “gun-free zones,” Liberty University is notable for actively encouraging its students to practice their constitutionally protected—and God-given—right to armed self-defense.

When it comes to .223 Rem. semi-automatic rifles, Ruger’s Mini-14 has long been one of the obvious choices. And it’s no wonder, considering it offers nearly the same handiness as the M1 Carbine, the ballistics of the AR15, and the feel of the classic M1 Garand and M14.
 

CA: Sheriffs cool to guns & ammo restrictions

The California State Sheriffs’ Association threw some cold water on the November ballot initiative being pushed by Lt. Gov. (and 2018 gubernatorial candidate) Gavin Newsom that restricts sales of guns and ammunition.

The fancifully titled “Safety for All Act,” co-authored by the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which already ranks California’s gun laws as the strictest in the nation, would ban the possession of “military-style, large-capacity magazines” (i.e., the standard-capacity magazines that manufacturers sell with their guns in 42 other states), require point-of-sale background checks for ammunition purchases and licensing of ammunition sellers.
 

Flashback: When the EU Pushed For More Gun Control Post-Paris Attacks

What happened in Brussels yesterday was abject barbarism. Once again Europe found itself in the crosshairs of the Islamic State. ISIS claimed responsibility for the two bomb attacks that killed over 30 people yesterday and wounded hundreds. So, given that Europe has been vulnerable to international terrorism longer than the United States, a situation that’s exacerbated by the millions of Syrian refugees pouring into the continent; why are European nations not loosening their gun laws that would allow their citizens to protect themselves? In fact, in the aftermath of the equally egregious Paris attacks in November, also committed by ISIS, Brussels actually pushed for more gun control.

A Pennsylvania man repelled a group of alleged home invaders with some well-placed bullets.

Police say four boys ages 13 to 16 tried to force their way into a home late Tuesday night, but were stopped when the resident shot two of them, both in the leg, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. The resident, who is 21-years-old, heard the boys trying to get into his window and opened fire. The injuries were not life threatening.

Campus carry will be back, at least according to one of the co-sponsors of the 2016 legislation.

Rep. Dane Eagle said a bill to allow people with concealed weapons permits to carry their guns on college and university campuses will be proposed again in the next legislative session. However, he seemed less sure about the future of a second gun bill (HB 163) that would have allowed concealed permit holders to openly carry their weapon.

The Cape Coral Republican was the keynote speaker at the Tiger Bay Club of Southwest Florida on Wednesday. Eagle used his 30-minute speech to talk about gun legislation, telling those in attendance he wanted to give explain the position of the Florida House.
 

IA: ATV Carry & Hearing Protection Acts Easily Pass Today’s Votes

Wow! Another solid day for IFC bills in the Iowa legislature! As you can see both the Hearing Protection Act and the ATV Carry Act passed their votes today with ease.

Those of you who’ve been paying attention will know the Hearing Protection Act is now all set for Governor Terry Branstad’s signature. We believe that will happen by April 1st. Once the governor signs it Iowa will officially be the 42nd state in the nation where private citizens can legally own suppressors.
 

Liberal Supreme Court Justices Stick to Scalia’s Script in Two Gun Cases

Also on Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear a lawsuit brought by a Colorado resident against the United States Postal Service over a regulation that bans guns at post offices and their adjacent parking lots. By refusing to take up the case, the Supreme Court lets stand a lower court ruling from the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which held the post office gun ban to be constitutional. In its decision, the 10th Circuit drew on the exceptions carved out by the court in Heller that give authorities leeway in banning guns from some “sensitive places” such as schools and government buildings.

It was nothing more or less than a high school sophomore’s poorly reasoned, “the Second Amendment only applies to muskets” argument, dressed up in legal terminology.

The unanimous decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court was, essentially, “you guys are idiots,” as they slapped down each point as being absurd.

A top gun-rights adviser to Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign claimed this weekend that President Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court is “his last-ditch effort” to “ruin the Second Amendment and destroy this country.”

Tim Macy, the chairman of the radical gun group Gun Owners of America and co-chair of Cruz’s “Second Amendment Coalition,” discussed the Supreme Court nomination in an interview Sunday with Mark Walters on “Armed America Radio.”

An Ogden restaurant is generating local buzz for the political statement it’s making in support of the second amendment.

Sea Bears on Washington Boulevard serves seafood. Customers rave about their fish and chips, but they’re also talking about the owner and his family, who open carry handguns.

“We’ve been in this location for two years and this location has been really good to us. It keeps getting better and better,” says Tony Siebers, owner of Sea Bears, who works alongside his wife and four children.

“We have three boys when they were growing up, their friends gave them a nickname, they said, ‘Oh the sea bears are here’. That’s where the name came from.”

One rainy morning four years ago, I walked out of Boise’s largest gun shop to find two gentlemen standing in front of the store, clipboards in hand, requesting signatures on a petition.

The petition was to request that Idaho citizens support a permitless carry law. That was the first time I met Greg Pruett, and I offered my help with his endeavor.
 

ID: When will Governor Otter Sign Permitless Carry?

Sin die (the day the legislature adjourns) is estimated as March 25th for 2016.

If the legislature adjourns before Governor Otter has the bill for five days, he has an additional five days after that, not counting Sundays, to sign or veto the bill. If he does neither, the bill becomes law.

If the legistature adjourns after 25 March, and the bill was not signed by the Governor, the bill will become law on 25 March 2016. If the legislature adjourns before 25 March, and the bill is not signed or vetoed, it will become law on 31 March.

The study, published March 10 in The Lancet, suggests that three laws implemented in some states could reduce gun deaths by more than 80 percent if they were adopted nationwide. Laws requiring firearm identification through ballistic imprinting or microstamping were found to reduce the projected mortality risk by 84 percent, ammunition background checks reduced it by 82 percent, and universal background checks for all gun purchases reduced it by 61 percent.
 

Why Would ISIS Attack Our Subways With Gas When We Have All These Convenient Guns

This is exactly why ISIS doesn’t bother encouraging high tech attacks of the variety Homeland Security is running experiments against. A short ISIS video released in the wake of its attack in Paris, where guns proved to be far more effective than even crude bombs, urged copycats to strike with an equally lo-fi approach: “If you can’t find a weapon, smash their heads with a rock, or run over them with your car and terrorize them.” If the government really wants to protect us from another Paris, they’ll reconsider releasing inert genetic samples into the air and instead consider making it as difficult as possible to buy devices that allow instant, effortless murder.

Bever goes on to note that the gun control supporters have utterly lost their marbles over Hamilton’s retelling of these classic tales, in which the armed and well-trained protagonists are able to self-rescue or rescue others without firing a single shot. Like in real life, the defensive gun uses in these tales primarily rely upon the potential for defensive violence, not the actual application of violence.

What does a high-net-worth individual want when he visits a gun range? He wants a VIP lounge where he can get a steak and a bottle of wine after he shoots. He wants members-only lanes where he can shoot at any time of day or night. He wants a concierge to get him another box of 9 mm ammo before he knows he’s out, like a good caddie at a country club. He may not have known it until the place appeared in this Collin County suburb right around Thanksgiving 2013, like a warm and tactful “You’re welcome” from God, but he wants the Frisco Gun Club.

The Obama administration is facing congressional scrutiny for blocking more than a quarter-million military veterans from owning guns.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has reported more than 257,000 former members of the military who cannot manage their finances to the FBI’s list of people who are not allowed to own guns, Republicans claim, even though "it has nothing to do with regulating firearms.”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. — John F. Kennedy
