CA: Off Duty Police & Concealed Carry Holders Not Welcome at Pardre’s Petco Park

Padres fans who are licensed concealed carry holders are not welcome at Petco Park.

Nor are off duty police officers who regularly carry concealed.

This new gun ban is a case of doing what is best for the team’s owners and government officials, and not best for the fans. Look at who was in on the decision to ban licensed concealed carriers from the ballpark.

We know the news media distorts reports of violence. Since Cain killed Abel…if it bleeds it leads. The media sensationalizes ordinary crime stories to keep us from changing the channel. The media never thought we’d take them seriously and change how we live. We changed our mind about a dangerous world.. and got a gun for self-defense.

This would eliminate the current safeguards for no good reason. Ohio's concealed-carry requirements are not onerous: Classes are widely available, convenient and affordable. Not only do they provide a basic introduction to gun handling and gun safety, but the instruction in self-defense law…are valuable and sobering for anyone who assumes the responsibility of carrying a gun for self-defense.

We have sacrificed personal safety for a fraudulent claim of freedom which benefits gun manufacturers and merchants.On May 6, SB116 allowing concealed carry of guns without a permit will be voted on by the full New Hampshire house.Please ask your representative to vote no on this bill. Let’s reverse this disturbing trend and begin working for a safer America where guns are about recreation, not violence against people.

On April 24, The Hill ran a column explaining that Hillary Clinton may not outline her strong support for more gun control until the presidential election is over.

In other words, Hillary may not mention her support for expanded background checks, an “assault weapons” ban, and a gun registry, on the campaign trail, but these things will become paramount if she is able to win because gun control groups are counting on her to finish the job Obama left undone.

In my time, (no old jokes!) I used iron sights on my military issued M-16A2 simply because EOTech and Aimpoint didn’t exist.

Fast forward 26 years and every civilian shooter, soldier and law enforcement officer has one on their rifle.
 

TX: Open Carry, its relation to the 2nd Amendment

If you ask the typical American citizen the definition of the second amendment, their answers are invariably, “the right to bear arms.” One that does not study history would be left with the impression that those five words make up the entirety of it. However, that short phrase is only a segment within the larger wording and overall meaning.

“A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state.” This precedes “the right to bear arms.” Despite this fact, the majority of the text seems to have failed to prove itself relevant to the American public today.

"The recent report of an Islamist plot against the Vatican highlights the need Christians have for self-defense firearms," gun rights expert John M. Snyder said here today.

"Islamist fundamentalists throughout the world are waging a genocidal war against Christians," said Snyder. "Christians must have access to self-defense guns so they can protect themselves and their families against these religious fanatics."

According to ANSA, an Italian news service, "The Vatican was reportedly in the cross-hairs five years ago of a Sardinia-based al-Qaeda Italian network that was busted Friday.

Welcome to the Garden State. Just leave your guns at the border, please. Local news outlets are reporting on a court case which has recently come to a close wherein a citizen, identified only as Z.L., had applied for a gun permit in 2013. Keep in mind that this is not a permit to carry… just to be able to purchase and own a gun. He was turned down because the background investigation revealed that he had been arrested on a domestic violence charge fifteen years earlier. But he was aquitted on the charge, so we should be able to clear this one up fairly quickly, right? Well, not in New Jersey, folks.

Presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have joined forces to put down the city by introducing legislation to weaken its gun laws. Rubio and Jordan would go so far as to allow gun owners to carry their weapons into D.C. buildings — except not, perish the thought, into federal buildings and the U.S. Capitol.

But he prefers devices with a sharper edge — Buck knives, switchblades and even stilettos. The Elko native, who grew up castrating bulls and cutting fences, considers a well-honed blade one of the tools of his country trade, rather than a weapon.

A working electrician, part-time citizen politician and full-time Second Amendment rights advocate, the 62-year-old Republican supports efforts to relax the state’s knife laws, part of a national trend to rethink the perils of what many supporters call the misunderstood switchblade.

Mayor Barrett (D) held a press conference on the morning after the shooting to address this tragedy while criticizing Gov. Scott Walker and the state Legislature for passing laws that put more guns on the streets.

Barrett called for more resources to deal with all the violence in Milwaukee.

“I do want to lock up more people who do get involved in gunfights in parks, in streets, outside taverns because black lives matter,” said Mayor Barrett.

The magazine chose the Smith & Wesson (NASDAQ: SWHC ) Model 69 .44 Combat Magnum as the best handgun introduced in 2014. The model 69 was one of nine new guns the firearms manufacturer introduced last year.

As Shooting Illustrated asked itself, "Why did a magazine that covers the latest and greatest tactical and personal-defense firearms choose a revolver as its handgun of the year? Because revolvers still have an important place in the defensive realm, and the Model 69 takes the platform to an exciting new level."

This past Monday, HB 910 was passed on third reading in the House. As a co-author of the bill and an avid Second Amendment supporter, I was happy to see this piece of open-carry legislation succeed. I look forward to seeing Gov. Abbott sign open carry into law very soon.

"I don't see anything wrong with people having a gun. They need a gun for protection,” Sahnger said.

"What are we really talking about?” asked her customer, Fred Reyes. “The opportunity to have a pistol because my relative or my neighbor has one?"

Recent history shows why Congress had to rein in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) with the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act of 1986.

On Friday, Feb. 13, 2015—the eve of a three-day weekend, with members of Congress back in their home states—BATFE quietly announced its intention to ban the manufacture and importation of the M855 cartridge.

The plan was to take the second-most common variety of ammunition for the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15, off the market.
 

The Hill on Hillary: ‘Gun control advocates have high hopes’

The Hill is reporting this morning that “gun control advocates have high hopes for Hillary Clinton’s presidential run, viewing her as an ally who can finish the push for tightened background checks that has stalled in President Obama’s second term.”

Evidently, all of those criticisms and warnings aimed at Clinton by Second Amendment advocates are correct, then. It is not just background checks that a Hillary presidency would tighten, those activists fear, but the regulatory noose around their necks as gun owners.

Local businesses owners and residents are reacting to a bill that allows people to carry concealed weapons without a permit.

On Thursday, the South Carolina House voted 90-18 in favor of the amended bill, which now heads to the Senate for approval.

"It just seems mighty reckless from a gun dealer standpoint, and as a citizen standpoint," said David Floyd, the co-owner of The Gun Store in Conway.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing of concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. But it should not be forgotten, that it is not only a part of the right that is secured by the constitution; it is the right entire and complete, as it existed at the adoption of the constitution; and if any portion of that right be impaired, immaterial how small the part may be, and immaterial the order of time at which it be done, it is equally forbidden by the constitution. [Bliss vs. Commonwealth, 12 Ky. (2 Litt.) 90, at 92, and 93, 13 Am. Dec. 251 (1822)
