The past 25 years have seen the advent of a disturbing trend in America -- militarization of its civilian law enforcement. This unsettling rise is evident with the regular use of paramilitary police units, commonly known as Special Weapons And Tactics, or SWAT, for routine police work. The SWAT teams, nowadays, are most frequently used to serve drug warrants, usually with forced and unannounced entry into a home.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm announced Wednesday that Jeremy Rossetto will not be charged in connection with the March 12 shooting death of two teens who were hitting him with a souvenir baseball bat.

The district attorney's office reviewed the police investigation, interviewed witnesses and viewed witness cellphone video before concluding that Rossetto shot the teens in self-defense.

"He's relieved," attorney David Geraghty said of Rossetto, his client. "He's cooperated as much as a person could do in the circumstances."

On March 31, 2014, a member of Open Carry Texas was exercising his right to self defense while on a walk near his home in San Antonio.

San Antonio Police Department officers from the West Substation responded to what they claim was an individual waving his rifle around and pointing it at people. Nothing could be further from the truth.

After approaching and recognizing that Henry Vichique wasn’t a threat and that the call was a hoax, officers still attempted to disarm a law-abiding citizen walking home from a friend’s house. As officers were about to let Henry go about his business, another officer arrived on scene and decided to elevate the tension by tazing our member.

A Florida pastor running for president of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc., is spearheading a national effort to mobilize the African-American faith community against “stand your ground” laws permitting the use of deadly force in self-defense.

R.B. Holmes, pastor of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Tallahassee, Fla., says the 2012 shooting deaths of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis, an unarmed teen killed during an argument over loud music in a convenience store parking lot in Jacksonville, Fla., should galvanize African-Americans the way injustice sparked the civil rights movement 50 years ago.

Concealed-handgun permit holders and armed off-duty police officers would be able to enter restaurants serving alcohol if lawmakers agree to a bill backed Wednesday by the House Criminal Justice Committee.

The committee voted 9-4 to advance the measure to the full House for debate.

Rep. Terry Landry, D-New Iberia, a former superintendent of state police, said he opposed the measure because it would be dangerous to have guns in restaurants, some of which can get rowdy.

The group known as the Dream Defenders held a conference call with reporters Tuesday to denounce proposed legislation known as the “warning shot” bill. Florida State University student Amanda Merced says the bill is a dangerous expansion of the state’s Stand Your Ground law.

“There have been at least 134 documented fatal cases in which Florida’s Stand Your Ground law was invoked or at least played a role in it", said Marced. "Pretty much in all states where Stand Your Ground laws have been passed, there’s been a near doubling of justifiable homicides.”

A constitutional challenge of Colorado's new gun laws began in U.S. District Court Monday and will stretch for two weeks as Second Amendment advocates try to eliminate magazine limits and universal background checks.

Deputy Attorney General Matthew Grove said the new laws are critical to the state's public safety, noting that they were passed in response to mass shootings that occurred in 2012, one in an Aurora movie theater and another in a Connecticut elementary school.

As previously reported, House File 2381 – NRA-supported legislation to legalize suppressors in Iowa – has faced many uphill battles during this legislative session.

The NRA and the Iowa Firearms Coalition have worked ceaselessly with members of the state House of Representatives and state Senate to advance firearms freedoms for Iowans, but unfortunately, the current Iowa General Assembly is set to once again continue a trend of failing to send strong Second Amendment legislation to the Governor for enactment.

MO: Missouri House Gives Gun Control Nullification Bill First-Round Approval

The Missouri House has given first-round approval to its version of the gun control nullification bill, but not before softening the language a bit.

The House version of the Second Amendment Preservation Act would still nullify any federal gun control law that would "infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms." But federal officers who try to enforce federal gun laws would be liable for civil lawsuits instead of criminal charges and risking fines and jail time. House Bill 1439 is sponsored by state Rep. Doug Funderberk, R-St. Peters.
 

Guam: Guam trying to go ‘shall issue’ a month after adopting Castle Doctrine

With a federal court ruling against ‘may issue’ in neighboring Hawaii, a bill in the Guam Senate is pushing for the territory to go ‘shall issue.’

...

Ada has the support of the Guam Gun Owner’s Association as well as several co-sponsors from both parties, making the likelihood of the territory becoming “shall-issue” very likely. Earlier this year Guam adopted a Castle Doctrine law to protect gun owners. That bill also authored by Ada, current Minority Leader in the Senate.

If SB 296 does become law in this westernmost part of the United States, Guam will join 42 states in allowing permits to law abiding gun owners without restrictive ‘may-issue’ practices.

The Colorado Department of Natural Resources hopes by the end of this year to go ahead with purchasing the old Cameo power plant site to open a new outdoor shooting range there.

That is to be made possible thanks to a bill in the Colorado Legislature to give the agency the authority to go ahead with the purchase as long as the price is right, the department can find the money and there are no environmental concerns, department Executive Director Mike King told the House Agriculture, Livestock & Natural Resources Committee, which approved the bill on a 10-3 vote Wednesday.

Yesterday, while the Second Amendment Foundation and its allies in a New York court action were celebrating a small victory, and thousands of upstate gun owners were demonstrating against the SAFE Act – at the center of the SAF action – gun prohibitionists were huddled inside the Capitol building in Albany, announcing their next barrage of gun control measures.

SAF announced Tuesday that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico had agreed, in a stipulated order, to not enforce a section of the state’s controversial SAFE (Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement) Act while an appeal is underway in one of the legal challenges to that statute.

The gun industry has been flying high since Barack Obama was elected president. Fear that the liberal Democrat would pass restrictive gun legislation sent people to gun stores in record numbers, ostensibly so they would have something for Obama to "pry out of their cold dead hands."

That legislation never came, but if public sentiment is an indication, new rules could be on the horizon. A new Harris Poll shows that 77% of Americans believe that firearms should come with some sort of restriction while only 14% believe there should be no limitations.

The powerful Illinois lobbyist for the National Rifle Association has helped rewrite a state law he broke.

Todd Vandermyde told the Chicago Sun-Times in an article published Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1iZQ9n3 ) that he was only exercising his rights as a citizen when he intervened to push legislation to loosen restrictions on transporting crossbows and enlisted the House Republican leader to tighten authority for police to enter private land.

Vandermyde was ticketed by state conservation police officers and fined $120 for carrying an uncased, loaded crossbow on an ATV in December during a hunting trip. He was on private land in the southwestern suburbs of Chicago.

The National Rifle Association has finally achieved its holy grail in Georgia. House Bill 60 covers a wide swath, leaving almost no stone uncovered as to who can get a gun-carry permit and where a person with a license can carry his or her weapon. We are Second Amendment advocates, but House Bill 60 goes far beyond that amendment’s meaning.

Two witnesses Wednesday claimed there are flaws in gun control laws, in the third day of a federal trial testing the constitutionality of three gun-control bills in Colorado.

Gov. John Hickenlooper signed the gun-control bills into law in March 2013. They include a ban on sale of large-capacity gun magazines and require universal background checks before a gun sale.
