IN: NRA seeks universal gun law at national meeting -- NRA convention in Indianapolis draws attention to push for universal concealed carry gun law

With concealed weapons now legal in all 50 states, the National Rifle Association's focus at this week's annual meeting is less about enacting additional state protections than on making sure the permits already issued still apply when the gun owners travel across the country.
The nation's largest gun-rights group, which officially opens its meeting of about 70,000 people Friday in Indianapolis, wants Congress to require that concealed weapons permits issued in one state be recognized everywhere, even when the local requirements differ. Advocates say the effort would eliminate a patchwork of state-specific regulations that lead to carriers unwittingly violating the law when traveling.

One story reported on CBSDFW.COM has a lot of people talking. It started with Tuesday night’s vote on an ordinance by the Arlington City Council to ban guns and concealed weapons at public meetings.
Members of the gun rights group Open Carry Tarrant County believe they are the ones being targeted, but they may not be the only ones affected by ordinance changes.
A second Arlington ban could put heavy restrictions on handing out pamphlets.

Watch Bundy explain how we need to keep things from going backwards for blacks, and how the Federal government has created a neo-slave class via entitlement dependency that is so bad it is arguably worse than plantation slavery was. It is 100% clear that Cliven Bundy is not saying that blacks should be slaves picking cotton, but that the Federal government has created conditions for them so terrible, that their current situation may actually be worse. ...
Now watch the edited version of Bundy’s remarks as promoted by the left-wing Media Matters and as reported in the NY Times:

A Texas man said this week that he was forced to kill his dog with his bare hands after an officer who he called to investigate a burglary shot the animal because it was barking.
Earlier this week, Cole Middleton explained on Facebook that he had contacted the Rains County Sheriff’s Department about a robbery last Friday.
Middleton admitted that his 3-year-old dog, Candy, was probably barking when the Deputy Jerred Dooley arrived, but he insisted that the animal had never bitten anyone.

A Sikh man wants to serve on a Sutter County jury, but the court will not let him because of the ceremonial weapon he carries.
Next week, Gursant Singh is scheduled for jury duty. He says he’ll be arriving with other members of his community, asking for the chance to serve on a jury.
“I feel very strongly that as a citizen of the United States that I should be able to serve as a juror,” he said.
Despite the fact he’s ready, he may never be allowed in the courthouse.
“They’ve put me in a position,” he said. “Either I violate my code of conduct with my religion, or I break the law.”
Singh, who is Sikh carries a dagger, known as a kirpan, an important part of the religion he says that must not be removed.

Brazos County jurors on Wednesday heard from the ex-wife of a former Madisonville police sergeant on trial for allegedly planting methamphetamine on the woman he twice married.

Jeffrey Covington's ex-wife testified that when she was arrested in November 2011 after a Texas DPS trooper pulled her over and found drugs in a magnetic key holder under her vehicle, she immediately suspected Covington was somehow responsible.

The defendant was indicted in February 2013 on felony charges of delivery of a controlled substance, obstruction or retaliation and official oppression, and is accused of working with another former Madisonville officer, Justin Barham, to have a police informant plant drugs on Laura Covington.

Dear Andrew,
I’ve always been a staunch opponent of guns, but my home has been broken into twice in the last six weeks. Now I’m think- ing about purchasing a gun to protect my family and home. My wife is very much against this idea, and we fight about it of- ten. I completely understand where she’s coming from, as her views on the dangers of owning a gun used to be my own. What do you think? Should I get a gun?

Dear One Shot,
Guns are intense. They function not only as a powerful extension of a man’s hand, but also as an extension of his will and ability to kill. ...

Where the current state constitutional reads "the right of a citizen to keep and bear arms", the amendment would change the wording to "fundamental right".

And instead of just saying "arms", the amendment would add the words "handguns, rifles, shotguns, knives, nonlethal defensive weapons and other arms in common use. "

Guests with permission would be able to use deadly force if they feel threatened, under a bill approved by the Missouri House expanding the “castle doctrine.”

Property owners or renters are already allowed to use deadly force in a house or vehicle in self-defense under a 2007 Missouri law. The measure sponsored by Rep. Joe Don McGaugh, R-Carrollton, extends the legal defense to people who are on the property with permission from the owner.

In response to his recent statement on gun control laws, “You’ve got to wear them down until they finally say, ‘Enough’.“ I have this to say - Mr. Bloomberg, I will never say ‘Enough’!

You are one hundred percent correct however, when it comes to issues of public health and safety, I too, will not back down. I will continue to fight to be able to protect my children, in the manner I choose, one afforded to me by the Constitution of the country I pledge allegiance to.

We contacted Wintemute to talk about his research, the politics of studying firearms, and how much we really know about whether gun control laws work.

At the end of one of our conversations, Wintemute volunteered that he is also a donor to ProPublica, something the editorial staff had not known. (He and his family's foundation have donated less than $1,500 over four years.)

When advocates for tighter restrictions on guns rallied last week in Austin City Hall, a small group of opponents staged a counter-rally outside, carrying firearms and waving a flag emblazoned with an assault rifle and the caption “Come and Take It.”

Texas gun rights advocates, like their counterparts who argue for gun control, have been increasingly active in the wake of recent mass shootings, organizing hundreds of grass-roots demonstrations across the state. Their effort includes a simple strategy: a public display of their weapons — sometimes in front of their opponents.

It seems that every time there is a self-defense shooting in the United States, writers and editors are quick to pull out the Castle-Doctrine ruler and see if the case measures up.

As with most pop-culture media drives, the more a topic is discussed, the less people seem to understand it. Ask the average person on the street to explain the meaning of “Stand your Ground” or the “Castle-Doctrine” and some will go so far as to tell you the rules give a person license to kill anyone who makes them afraid or nervous, all without consequences.
 

CA: Candidate for governor Tim Donnelly wants to overhaul concealed-carry laws

California's system for handing out permits to carry concealed handguns would be overhauled and centralized under a newly amended bill by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, the leading Republican gubernatorial candidate.

Introduced in the wake of a federal appeals court decision declaring unconstitutional the restrictions that many California counties have used to sharply limit the right to carry a concealed weapon, Donnelly's AB1563 would strip county sheriffs of the authority and discretion to grant or deny such permits -- and instead give that authority to the state Justice Department.

But an official with the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence sees the language as problematic because it contains a self-defense exception.

In March 1910, Chicago’s city council ran with that idea, debating an ordinance that would ban hatpins longer than nine inches; any woman caught in violation would be arrested and fined $50. The proceedings were packed with curious spectators, men and women, and acrimonious from the start. “If women care to wear carrots and roosters on their heads, that is a matter for their own concern, but when it comes to wearing swords they must be stopped,” a supporter said. Cries of “Bravo!” from the men; hisses from the women.

Responding to a loose dog complaint in a residential neighborhood, Officer Tarek Hassani shot a black lab, Hooch, in his owner's front lawn, killing it.
