Self-defense appears to have been the cause of gunfire that resulted in the death of a 21-year-old Shelby Township man, police officials said Thursday.

Christopher Cammarata was shot May 9 when a domestic disturbance at his family’s home on Glen Eagle Drive, near 21 Mile and Hayes roads, turned violent, township police said.

About 1 p.m., the woman returned to the trailer park and confronted the trailer park manager, a man in his 60s, in his trailer, Brady said.

Holding his gun at his side, the manager asked the woman to leave. She left, only to return with a large stick and went after him with it, Brady said.

That’s when the man fired two shots, both of which hit her, he said.

The incident is still under investigation, but based on the information and evidence so far, it appears to be a case of self-defense, he said.
 

Three Firearms for Emergency Preparation

A firearm that is kept specifically for self-defense is akin to a fire extinguisher: it is life-saving emergency equipment maintained for rapid and unexpected deployment to mitigate a threat. A safe home should have both tools readily available to authorized users, and both should be maintained regularly. For those of us that are firearms and shooting enthusiasts, guns become more than just life-saving equipment; they may be our hobby or even integral to our lifestyle or work. Regardless, let us remember the most essential role of the firearm.
 

NY: Second Amendment Freedoms Deserve Promotion & Protection

The ongoing call to keep gun stores closed (and attack the National Rifle Association for fighting for them to remain open) is as misguided as it is predictable. What’s sad is that it comes as no surprise that the anti-Second Amendment crowd seeks to leverage the COVID-19 health crisis to the benefit of their failing attack on constitutional freedoms of law-abiding New Yorkers.

The NRA recently filed a lawsuit against Gov. Cuomo and New York State for implementing an order that:

“effectively and indefinitely suspended a key component of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution – shutting down all gun stores in the State of New York, including federally licensed gun stores, by deeming them ‘non-essential’ businesses.”

The combination of rain and the building being closed may have helped keep things from getting as ugly as they did two weeks ago when armed protesters filled the Capitol.

There were still people with guns in the crowd. The protesters with guns talked a lot about the proposal to ban guns inside of the Capitol.

"I'm exercising my first amendment right as well as my second. This is our freedom of expression," said Phil Robinson, Michigan Liberty Militia.

“Garcia’s victory is also a message to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, that her party’s gun-grabbing agenda could cost them the House this fall,” Gottlieb stated. “She couldn’t even protect a Democrat seat in her own state, which should raise alarms with vulnerable Democrats in other districts all over the country. “And Joe Biden should also be worried,” Gottlieb concluded, “because his anti-gun-rights agenda is not going to play well in the critical battleground states, where voters are tired of being attacked by politicians like Biden who want to take away their rights.”

A leading gun control advocacy group has enlisted more than a dozen religious leaders to boost voter turnout this fall in support of candidates who back measures to prevent gun violence.

Everytown for Gun Safety, which expects to spend $60 million on this year’s elections, is pressing forward with its interfaith effort amid ongoing concerns about shootings at houses of worship. The group’s partners include representatives from Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Sikh backgrounds, several of them well-known progressive activists.

Women in New York are seeking guns in anticipation of a coming coronavirus crime wave.

35-year-old Nicole Rosario is a stay-at-home Staten Island mom who wants a gun. Rosario said, “It’s my constitutional right. But that doesn’t seem to matter. I live in New York which means it’s impossible. That’s crazy and unfair.”

Rosario’s 32-year-old sister, Christine, feels the same. She is actually “going to ask her boyfriend to move in with her because he already has a gun.”

Again and again we hear the Right assert: “Yeah, but it’s in the Constitution. I gotta Second Amendment right!” Unless you are a member of “(a) well regulated militia”, no you don’t, cowboy! Wanna kill your self? Help yourself. Wanna parade in front of your mirror with your commo and AR15? Go ahead, lick your lips, look bad. Wanna threaten and murder, look elsewhere than the Constitution to justify that. Look in vain and leave the rest of us the hell out of your fantasies – especially our families, our kids.
 

VA: Virginia's choices: Compare the two parties' actions and intent

Virginia Republicans contrived reading of the Second Amendment supports their insistence on an ever-expanding acceptance of guns. Under the false banner of “guns save lives,” they oppose any compromise. Despite broadly accepted and long-standing laws that regulate alcohol, cars and drugs, they reject common-sense regulation. Disregarding newly created state laws, there are movements to create Second Amendment sanctuaries and militias throughout our rural counties that ignore the existence of structures to maintain law and order.

Instead of exploiting this tragedy during the pandemic as the progressive, liberal left-wing anti-Second Amendment gun prohibitionists do in this country, they should learn from it.

Gun control won’t prevent tragedies.

There has been a large increase of first-time gun buyers in the U.S. wanting to protect themselves in case of civil unrest resulting from virus prevention restrictions and jail/prison releases.

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco put Benitez’s ruling on hold April 24 while it considered the case. On Thursday, the three-judge panel said the state had presented an adequate argument to justify leaving the law in effect during its appeal.

“Second Amendment rights are not unlimited,” said the panel, which included Judge Daniel Collins, an appointee of President Trump. The other two judges, Jacqueline Nguyen and Barry Silverman, were appointed by Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced Wednesday that small retail businesses in the state, including gun stores, can operate at 25% of fire code capacity effective Saturday, May 16, as long as COVID-safe practices are in place.

Even with that limited opening, her order provides little relief to firearm retailers who have been shut down in Cibola, McKinley and San Juan Counties -- including Papas Pawn & Gun in Grants that New Mexico State officials fined $60,000 while they remained open to sell to law enforcement during this crisis.

An ordinance declaring that Anderson County is a Second Amendment sanctuary received preliminary approval Wednesday from County Council members who met in person for the first time since March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The ordinance expresses the county's strong support for the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which protects a person's right to bear arms. The ordinance also opposes any new regulations "that violate the Second, Fourth, Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the Constitution of South Carolina."

Jenkins communicated his stance late Tuesday on the Facebook page of the Sheriff’s Office, in response to an inquiry by the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, an arm of the Virginia Department of Health which is charged with enforcing Northam’s order.

“My response to that request is that we will not trample the constitutional freedoms of our citizens to enforce an edict of the Governor,” Jenkins wrote. “I do not speak for any of the other jurisdictions in the health district.”

His Facebook statement was swiftly echoed on social media and praised by conservative news outlets, including Washington Examiner staff writer Paul Bedard.
