Outdoor Channel is taking a critical look at “gun-free zones” in America for its first-ever documentary, set to air on Wednesday.
Hosted by Katie Pavlich, “Safe Haven: Gun Free Zones in America” features interviews with a number of experts on self-defense, victims of gun violence, and educators to shine a light on why so-called “gun-free” zones don’t always stay that way.

SOUTH PHILADELPHIA -- Republican Gov. Chris Christie has pardoned a Philadelphia woman facing gun charges and jail time after a traffic stop in New Jersey in 2013.

Shaneen Allen was arrested in October 2013 in Hamilton Township after telling a state trooper she had a handgun and a concealed-carry permit. New Jersey did not recognize the Pennsylvania permit, and she was arrested and charged under its strict gun laws.

Gov. Chris Christie has granted a pardon to Shaneen Allen, the Pennsylvania mother and gun owner who was arrested in October 2013 for carrying a concealed weapon into New Jersey.
Allen, a single mother of two, was stopped by a New Jersey state trooper in Hamilton Township near Atlantic City for performing an unsafe lane change. During the stop, Allen had informed the officer that she was a resident of Pennsylvania and that her home state had issued her a permit to carry a concealed handgun, which she had with her in her car that day.
But New Jersey's strict gun laws require weapons to be stored unloaded and locked in the trunk, and so Allen was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and spent 40 days in jail before making bail.

Three Broward Sheriff's Office deputies have been arrested for allegedly accepting cash payments in return for allowing a Pompano Beach strip club to remain open after hours while moonlighting there..

Deputies Reginald Arteta, Alberto Ferreras and Troy Wilkins turned themselves in at the Broward Main Jail Wednesday and were suspended without pay, according to Broward Sheriff's Office officials.

The arrests stemmed from August allegations that the deputies worked an unauthorized off-duty security detail at the Pink Pony Pompano, 1820 NW 21st St., accepted payments in cash and covered up illegal drug use.

PLYMOUTH TWP., Pa. - The state police corporal charged with fatally shooting a trooper during a training session skipped his court appearance Wednesday.

Officials say Corporal Richard Schroeter did not show up to his formal arraignment in Montgomery County and that a bench warrant will likely be issued.

He is facing charges of reckless endangerment.

Officials say Schroeter shot and killed 26-year-old Trooper David Kedra in September while teaching a firearms training class.
 

DC: D.C. drops appeal of court’s concealed carry ruling

Washington, D.C., will stop trying to appeal a court decision that had struck down the city’s unconstitutional ban on the concealed carry of handguns. That’s according to Karl Racine, the attorney general for municipality.

Racine said the city will instead attempt to bolster the controversial law its leaders passed as a replacement for the one struck down by the court last year. Critics of the new law believe it, too, is unconstitutional because of the numerous constraints it places on residents who seek to obtain a concealed carry permit.

Kansans soon can carry concealed weapons without permits or training under a bill signed by Gov. Sam Brownback on Thursday.

The new law, which kicks in July 1, makes Kansas the sixth state to allow “constitutional carry.” It will allow Kansans 21 and older to carry concealed firearms regardless of whether they have obtained a permit.

Training still will be required for anyone who wants to carry a concealed gun in the 36 states that accept Kansas permits.

STATE SEN. Anthony Hardy Williams says he's a Democrat, but he's starting to make us wonder. Not like Manchurian Candidate-levels of concern, but still . . . we're concerned.

Williams, one of six Democrats seeking the mayoral nomination, is backed by a trio of Main Line millionaires who want more charter schools. His wife works for the fracking industry. And it seems that he's a proponent of the so-called "stand your ground" gun laws pushed by the National Rifle Association.
 

FL: What is a slungshot and why is it illegal in Florida?

A simple tool designed by sailors and a staple of handcraft artists in Florida could soon be decriminalized in the Sunshine State with the support of Second Amendment advocates.

Not to be confused with slingshots, slungshots are crafted from a weight or shot tied to a cord. Used for generations by sailors to help throw lines when mooring, they were often carried for self-defense purposes and were made illegal in Florida in the 1900s, punishable by a misdemeanor.

Two young women from Florida State and Florida A&M Universities told a House committee Thursday allowing concealed weapons on college campuses will be a particular threat to black students.

Several students, however, said the hotly debated proposal won't change much – that students with concealed-weapons permits already have guns in many different business and social gatherings off campus. Supporters of the bill by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, said it would improve campus safety if potential killers or robbers know an armed student or faculty member might be nearby.

It’s a busy time to be a gun rights attorney in a state with some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country.

Dozens of gun battles are being fought in California courts right now. Many involve the Southern California law firm led by Chuck Michel, whom opponents at the San Francisco-based Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence call the “NRA’s star litigator.”

“Suddenly we walk across this fictitious line of a college campus, and all of the sudden now our rights to self-defense are inhibited just because we’ve crossed this line,” Steube says. “I don’t think that makes any sense.”

Unlike his K-12 proposal, Steube’s university bill puts the choice of carrying in the hands of a license holder rather than the school. Florida State faculty Union President Jennifer Proffitt argues this sets Florida apart from most other states that allow guns on their campuses.

Newly installed billboards praising the state’s gun laws have been removed after a pro-gun group said they were misleading.

The billboards were meant to continue a message that has been on a giant anti-gun billboard along the Massachusetts Turnpike in Boston. That billboard is coming down and a number of companies, including Clear Channel, agreed to donate space on other billboards.

But after decades of failed efforts to enact saner gun laws, the mood is changing. There's mounting evidence that African-Americans are embracing gun ownership.

A national poll published in December by the Pew Research Center chronicled this stunning change in attitudes. It reported: "Currently, 54% of blacks say gun ownership does more to protect people than endanger personal safety, nearly double the percentage saying this in December 2012 (29%)." Indeed, the massive and swift flip in black opinion was a key reason why for the first time over Americans overall support gun rights over so-called gun control.

Recently, Oregon lawmakers discussed a gun control proposal that outlaws all private gun sales except those between “close relatives,” and that makes sales between “close relatives” a privilege that exists only as long as the government allows it to continue.

The gun control bill is sponsored by state senator Floyd Prozanski (Democrat-Eugene).

Thank goodness Florida lawmakers finally are taking steps to encourage people to buy guns. The entire gun-selling industry in the state no doubt is about to go under. Without this valiant rescue attempt, firearms soon would disappear from our streets, and thousands of firearms-workers would themselves be on the streets.

However, the measure as proposed does not go far enough.

Three months ago, the lapdog media was convinced that the confirmation of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch was a “slam dunk.”

Now, not so much.

Lynch, as you may remember, has been characterized as “Eric Holder in a skirt.” She committed, under oath, to continue to push Holder’s unconstitutional anti-gun executive amnesty. She is in favor of a semi-auto ban, which should be of interest at a time when the Justice Department is using every means possible to ban semi-autos by executive fiat.

As Oregon lawmakers and their constituents debated a proposed “universal background check” (UBC) bill yesterday in Salem, they only had to look about two hundred miles north to see just how hollow any promises of crime prevention by such legislation really are.

The Salem Statesman Journal is reporting this morning how Beaver State gun owners and law enforcement are “divided” on Senate Bill 941, which aims to saddle that state’s citizens with the same kind of law that Washington voters passed last fall. It’s the same kind of law now being pushed in Nevada via citizen initiative; a measure many see as a backdoor gun registration scheme supported by wealthy elitists including anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

Sig Sauer is expanding its ammo manufacturing to include a parallel line of ball rounds for fun and practice designed to match the performance of expanding hollow point ammunition. The company is also starting to snatch up police contracts for their new striker-fired P320 pistol.

Both are new product lines Sig launched last year and both are quickly seeing a lot of success. Designed for duty and self-defense, Elite Performance Ammunition is offered in a variety of mainstream centerfire calibers, just like the P320.

What I like and dislike about appendix carry

I think it’s a strange name. The “bladder position” would probably be a more descriptive than appendix carry, because that’s actually where you carry the concealed pistol when using this technique, but, I guess bladder doesn’t sound too appealing either.

Regardless of what you call it, I personally believe it is the best place to carry a concealed handgun. (And so does former Delta Force operator, author and custom 1911 gunsmith Dalton Fury, who told me last year that he prefers to carry in the appendix position.)

The Second Amendment Foundation will continue fighting the District of Columbia’s new concealed carry law, while notching a small victory with today’s decision by the city to drop its appeal of SAF’s victory in the Palmer case that forced the city to adopt a carry permitting structure.

“While we’re happy to see the city drop their appeal of our earlier victory,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, “we were eager to face them in court, as there was no possible way they could have successfully argued in favor of continuing an outright ban on carry in the District.

Amidst all the stories in the news regarding guns, gun laws and senseless deaths and injuries caused by guns, we now have a pro-gun rally scheduled at our state Capitol. When will Iowans wake up and realize how senseless these rallies are and what they promote?

The incessant chant that they fear for their Second Amendment rights is nonsense. No one is coming for their guns. The National Rifle Association has done an outstanding job using fear, hate, lies and foolishness to promote its agenda, which is more about selling guns than protecting anyone's rights.
