MI: Clio schools can ban guns, attorney says in Michigan open carry lawsuit

A lawyer for Clio schools says the district is within its rights to ban guns from district buildings despite a lawsuit alleging the school violated state law that allows certain people to openly carry firearms on school property.

Clio Area Schools filed its response Monday, April 13, to a lawsuit filed by the father of a Clio elementary student who claims the district violated his right to openly carry a firearm into his daughter's school.

State law prevents people from carrying concealed firearms on school property. However, the law allows individuals with a concealed pistol license to openly carry their firearms in schools. Herman is a CPL holder.

When you asked about the role of public opinion polls, when it comes to Constitutional rights, what matters is what the Bill of Rights says. It doesn’t matter what happens to be popular at the moment.

The entire reason for the Second Amendment is not for hunting, it’s not for target shooting … it’s there so that you and I can protect our homes and our families and our lives. And it’s also there as fundamental check on government tyranny.”

An apparent love triangle led to a deadly shooting in Pontotoc County over the weekend. No arrests have been made in the case because investigators believe the shooter may have acted in self-defense.

“It’s been really hard. We weren’t expecting to have to bury him. He’s my little brother,” Wood’s older sister said.

Kyle Wood, 25, died Saturday night after being shot multiple times. His sisters asked us not to show their faces on camera, but wanted to share why they are angry.

African-American leaders in Crittenden County, Arkansas said they want the black communities to arm themselves with guns.
Shooting after shooting across the country where African-American people were killed by white police officers was what forced some local leaders to take action.

“We want to talk about fair policing and reaching out to local law enforcement and the disenfranchised black community,” Hubert Bass, CEO of the Crittenden County Justice Commission, said.

Bass and Shabaka Afrika, President of the Crittenden County NAACP, also called on the black community to arm themselves.

“We’re asking that black people around the country arm themselves and join and establish gun clubs,” Bass explained.
 

The House Wants to Let You Bring a Gun to Army Corps Land

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers controls 12 million acres of public land and water, 422 lake and river projects, and 7,700 miles of trails—and, except for hunting uses and other restricted purposes, you can't carry a gun on any of them.

But under a rider in an appropriations bill set to move through the House this spring, that could change. The Energy and Water spending bill, which cleared a subcommittee Wednesday, has language that would allow for the possession of firearms on Army Corps land.

Currently, firearm use on Army Corps land is restricted largely to target ranges or hunting activities. By contrast, the National Park Service allows loaded firearms, contingent on state regulations, under a policy enacted in 2010.

Gun rights groups continue to put pressure on Sen. President Andy Gardiner to make a bill to allow guns on college campuses a top priority for the remainder of the 2015 legislative session.

SB 176, sponsored by Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, would allow those 21 and up to carry concealed weapons at public colleges and universities. Its House companion, which was sponsored by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, flew threw its respective committees, where it was easily approved.

On Tuesday, Democrats in Oregon’s Senate ignored sheriffs and passed SB 941 by a vote of 17-13. This bill applies background checks to all gun sales in the state, retail and private, and provides a mechanism by which the guns of certain persons can be confiscated.

Bill sponsor Sen. Floyd Prozanski (D-Eugene) has been touting SB 941 as a way to fight crime by forcing everyone to go through the same background checks that individuals buying a gun in a gun store go through. Several sheriffs and Republican lawmakers made clear that criminals do not go through background checks and will not go through background checks with or without SB 941.

Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz discussed with Guns.com at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention what the role of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives should be. He didn’t go all “let’s abolish the ATF” like he has with other federal agencies, but his answer did align with a running narrative at the convention and general commentary.

A federal appeals court in Philadelphia yesterday ruled that Wal-Mart may exclude a shareholder proposal requiring board oversight on products the retail giant sells, including firearms with large-capacity magazines, according to several published reports.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit reversed an earlier decision by a District Court judge in Delaware that the proposal, by Trinity Wall Street Church in New York, should have been included in the 2014 proxy statement. The Circuit Court’s ruling will allow Wal-Mart to exclude the proposal from this year’s proxy statement.

Country singer Tim McGraw’s announcement Monday that he will be headlining a benefit concert for the “progressive” Sandy Hook Promise Foundation may disappoint some fans, but it should hardly surprise those who recall the encouragement he received in 2006 from “fellow Democrat, former President Clinton” to run for political office. What may surprise some, should any care to look under the surface of the event, is the decidedly non-“country” bent of the people behind the concert.

Chris Christie took a centrist tone on guns Wednesday, calling for the “right balance” between gun control and the Second Amendment.

“We’ve got to make sure we have public safety, but on the other hand we have to protect people’s rights both as sportsmen and hunters and for self protection too, find the right balance,” Christie told a group of New Hampshire voters at Chez Vachon in Manchester, according to New Jersey newspaper The Record.

Democratic representatives are voicing clear public safety concerns about the Iowa gun bill currently being debated ["Amended Iowa Gun bill OK'd amid heated debate," Apr. 9]. However, Rep. Matt Windschitl, R-Missouri Valley, the lead advocate for this bill and whose family owns a gun store, states, "Just because some Iowans may commit crimes doesn't mean the rights of other Iowans should be restricted."

OK, so let's take this argument and apply it to the medical cannabis discussion in Iowa.

We are seeing movement Wednesday on the campus carry bill.

The state senate gives its final approval on the bill in Austin about a month ago.

Now, it is waiting to find a place on the calendar for consideration by the House.

This bill is another one sparking controversy, prompting several students to gather at Texas Tech's campus to voice their opinions.

Wednesday afternoon, some students a part of the Young Conservatives of Texas group rallied and showed their support ‘for' the bill.

But, they were not the only ones to attend the rally, Cole Adams, president of Texas Tech Democrats also came, to show his opposition to the bill.

A major revamp of Cleveland’s gun laws is one step closer to reality, including new changes prompted by the weekend shooting death of 1-year-old Braylon Robinson by a 3-year-old relative. City Council’s Public Safety Committee approved the new gun ordinance during a meeting Wednesday.

Following Robinson’s death at the hands of another toddler who got his hands on a gun, Councilman Kevin Kelley proposed the inclusion of a mandatory 180 day jail sentence and $1,000 fine for anyone convicted of improperly allowing kids access to guns. The ordinance includes exceptions for hunting, sporting and educational purposes. No charges have yet been filed in Robinson’s death.

In the first true test of its design, last weekend Music City Center hosted its largest gathering to date: the 144th annual National Rifle Association convention. Not only did we pass that capacity test, we showed off. On three of the prettiest days of spring so far, we welcomed an estimated 70,000 gun lovers and rights advocates to the heart of Nashville, and we had a blast.

A Second Amendment advocacy group disagrees with that stance and is seeking a temporary restraining order against the city of Norman and the Norman Music Alliance to stop officials from prohibiting guns at the festival.

Don Spencer, vice president of the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association, wore his holstered gun to the Cleveland County Courthouse Wednesday, where he held a news conference on the lawn, shortly after a lawsuit was filed by attorney Lana Cohlmia on behalf of the association.

Cohlmia said banning people from carrying guns to the music festival is the same as “telling criminals — predators — that individuals here will not be armed. ‘Predators, here is your prey.’”

Last week yet another wildlife management issue went to a federal court in Washington, D.C.

Sending a matter involving the science of game management in Grand Teton National Park and the National Elk Refuge to a court is like going to a mechanic for a toothache.

The immediate issue in the new lawsuit is whether an Endangered Species Act exemption should be made that frees hunters firing in self-defense from penalties if they kill a grizzly bear during the park’s annual elk reduction hunt. Up to four grizzlies could die between now and 2022 under the exemption.
