MI: Guns in church? Training on what to do 'when the wolf shows up'

People of God, wake up to the prospect of violence in church, says a retired Texas police officer who's coming here to conduct safety training for religious congregations.

"It's hard to get church people to think in terms of violence occurring on their property because their religious mindset causes you to think 'This is God's house. He will protect it,'" Jimmy Meeks said. "But nowhere in the New Testament are we told a building is God's house. The statistics of what's happening pretty much indicate that he's not protecting his house.

"In the mind of a criminal there is no sacred place. You have to get these church people to wake up to the reality.

"Why not love your people enough to protect them?"
 

CT: The Sandy Hook Gun Lawsuit Panned and Praised by Sanders Has a Trial Date

It looks like the gun lawsuit that Bernie Sanders has both condemned and cheered could actually go to trial. Yesterday a Connecticut judge set a trial date of April 3, 2018, for a lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor, and dealer who supplied the Bushmaster XM15-E2S used in the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. In the meantime, the plaintiffs—who include the families of nine people murdered at the school, plus a survivor of the attack—can proceed with discovery. It's not exactly clear what they hope to find, since the case hinges not on facts but on the way they're spun.
 

Clinton Continues to Load Campaign With Victims for Gun Control

In her mad dash to get back into the White House, Hillary Clinton is relying on the ignorance of the American people and the compassion people feel for victims of gun violence. It’s almost a syndrome at this point, a case of Tourette’s with her zombie gun control lies that she just can’t help but spew out into the atmosphere.

The latest potential assault on our Second Amendment rights and “the gun lobby” (aka: gun owners who want to protect their Second Amendment rights) is a campaign ad featuring the daughter of the principal who was killed at Sandy Hook.
 

OK: OK gun measures offer few benefits to go with economic downside

House Bill 3098 would allow Oklahomans 21 and older to openly carry a firearm in public without a permit. Current law allows open carry only for those who have obtained a concealed carry permit — a process that includes training that would no longer be required under HB 3098.

The bill does preserve some restrictions. Oklahomans couldn't take a firearm into a government building, school, jail, casino or sports arena under the legislation.

The trooper gave a short foot chase then returned to his cruiser to call in backup and a K-9. While this was happening, the suspect allegedly “stole a vehicle from a nearby residence and crashed shortly after.” The property owner then drew a gun on the suspect and held him until police arrived.
 

New Supreme Court Gun Case Protects Helpless Women

The Caetano Supreme Court gun decision had so many critically important features it is unfathomable it did not steal the entire news cycle when it hit on March 21, 2016. A mere shooting by a sick person in a small town does that.

The U.S. Supreme Court just handed down such a monumental Second Amendment decision—its 113th gun case—that if the mainstream media had been doing its job it would have dominated the front page for days, and devoured cable news chatter for 24 hours daily, worse than the jihad or any other minor preemption that consumes news.

The Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday passed a bill that would allow people to openly carry firearms without a permit and without training.

Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, said the bill won't expand the places people can bring guns, but would allow non-felons over 21 to carry guns without having to go through the permitting and training process required for concealed carry.

A lawsuit filed in Flathead County brings the discussions surrounding immigration and gun rights together:

A legal, green card-holding, Whitefish woman is preparing to sue Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry after she was denied the right to a concealed carry permit, citing her non-citizen status.

Lenka Knutson was born in Slovakia, but according to legal documents has been living in Montana for more than ten years.

Her attorney, Quentin Rhoades, told MTN News that Montana state law prohibits her from obtaining her concealed carry permit and that federal rules say she may be allowed that right.

The gun industry has boomed under President Barack Obama, according to a new study from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, resulting in a significant increase of gun-related jobs throughout the Untied States.

The number of full-time jobs in the gun industry has ballooned from approximately 166,000 in 2008 to nearly 288,000 in 2016, according to the report. That’s an increase of more than 73 percent in just eight years. In 2015 alone, the industry added nearly 25,000 jobs.

The armed robbers, John Grossklaus, 28, Larry Shaver, 28, and Whitney Kabiru, 23, worked together to gain access to the elderly man’s home. Kabiru approached the home and knocked on the elderly man’s door, asking to use his phone for an emergency. When he allowed her to enter, her accomplices, dressed in dark clothes, burst into the home, flashed a gun and demanded the homeowner surrender his valuables.

Rather than become a victim, the 80-year-old homeowner drew his own weapon and shot at the three armed robbers.

A newly imposed $1,000 per pistol tax could serve as a “role model” for U.S. states, according to the governor of the Northern Mariana Islands.

The U.S. territory imposed the controversial handgun tax earlier this month.

Gov. Ralph Torres said it is meant to improve the safety of law enforcement and the community.

“It’s something that none of us want and we want to make it as strict as possible,” Torres said in a statement.

Tubman, according to the Chicago Tribune, will be the first woman pictured on paper currency in a hundred years. The announcement has gotten a positive reaction, according to published reports.

So that you won’t be fooled by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow claiming Second Amendment supporters were celebrating the Oklahoma City bombing this week — as she has on April 19 in years past — Tuesday was the anniversary of the battles of Lexington and Concord, a date all Americans used to know.

This year, New Yorkers celebrated by voting to keep the country that was christened in blood at Lexington and Concord.

A study released April 20 by the Brennan Center for Justice shows that the murder rate jumped 13.3 percent in America’s biggest cities during 2015.

Three Democrat-run, heavily gun-controlled cities–Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington DC–“account for more than half” of the murder increase, the report admits.

The study claims that the murder increase in these cities is driven by local factors rather than national trends.

As of Tuesday’s meeting of the Eddy County Commission, county employees are now allowed to carry concealed weapons on their person while at work.

The commissioners approved Resolution R-16-28, a Concealed Carry by Employees policy presented by County Manager Rick Rudometkin Tuesday morning after much discussion about gun safety, self-defense, the Second Amendment, and Article II, Section 6, of the New Mexico Constitution.

“More and more agencies are embracing policies that recognize the employee’s individual right to bear arms,” said Rudometkin. “Examples of agencies include Chaves County, Luna County, Otero County, the City of Colorado Springs, and many other agencies around the country.”
 

SC: Lawmakers take wrong aim on ‘gun rights’ — again

But somehow our state lawmakers have time to consider a bill that would allow someone in bankruptcy to protect up to $5,000 worth of firearms from debt collectors.

It is stunning that the S.C. House of Representatives on Tuesday passed the bill, introduced by Rep. Alan Clemmons, R-Myrtle Beach.

Mr. Clemmons said he learned that other states have similar laws. He didn’t provide any evidence that the issue has arisen in South Carolina or that the bill’s passing would benefit the state in some way.

No one offered a bill suggesting that someone in bankruptcy could shield $5,000 worth of canned foods that might sustain a family or a car that might enable the bankrupt individual to work and rectify his financial situation.
 

DE: Bill would extend gun background check waiting period in Delaware

The bill extends the amount of time that a Delaware gun buyer might have to wait for a background check to be done from three days to 30 days.

“To me, this is a no-brainer bill,” said House Majority Leader Valerie Longhurst. She added that lawmakers have an obligation to protect public safety, and that only one gun in the wrong hands can have drastic consequences.

“It’s a public safety issue,” said Longhurst.

Representatives of the Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence also spoke in favor the measure, arguing that it is not unreasonable to make gun buyers wait for a background check to be completed.

In June of 2014, Lenka Knutson’s concealed carry permit application was denied by the Flathead County Sheriff’s office. But after hearing the sheriff’s decision, Knutson decided she would file something else.

Legal papers.

The 34-year-old Slovakian woman, a legal resident with a green card who lives in Whitefish, MO with her husband and children, is now suing Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry for denying her right to carry. Knutson, who happens to be a member of the Second Amendment Foundation, filed the suit as a co-plantiff with the SAF on Monday.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. — Alexis de Tocqueville
