On Tuesday's CBS Evening News, a report filed by Nikki Battiste promoted the alleged need for stricter safe storage laws that would threaten criminal punishment for parents who do not safely store their guns within certain guidelines.

Even though researchers like John Lott have found that such laws are more of a problem for gun owners than a help, the report only devoted 21 seconds out of an almost two and a half minute report to giving some of the NRA's point of view against such laws.

Firearms instructors across the nation will band together to provide free training courses to teachers as part of the annual National Train a Teacher Day on July 20.

The second year running, the day looks to encourage medical, concealed carry, firearms and tactical instructors to offer free training opportunities to anyone who works in a school. The hope is to better prepare school staff for unfortunate events. A collaborative effort originating from ScotShot instructor Grant Gallagher and Trigger Pressers Union founder Klint Macro, the grassroots initiative emphasizes the movement is all-encompassing and doesn’t just set its sights on firearms classes.

On another topic, Sullivan said Cooper was the deciding vote on the Senate Judiciary Committee to defeat the stand-your-ground bill during this year's regular session.

The legislation would have eliminated the "duty to retreat" from the state's self-defense laws. It failed to clear the committee by a single vote. Sullivan said he would have voted for the bill.

"I think it is part of our constitutional and God-given right to defend yourself and your family," Sullivan said.
 

RI: Second Amendment sanctuary? Count Johnston out for now, Polisena says

Despite a number of communities taking up resolutions to become “Second Amendment sanctuaries,” Mayor Joseph Polisena said he doesn’t see a need for Johnston to follow suit at this time.

Foster recently joined Burrillville, Hopkinton and West Greenwich as communities whose town councils voted in favor of resolutions embracing the “sanctuary” designation.

Polisena said there are more important topics in town to discuss right now, but he did not completely dismiss the notion. He said that if a law were to pass that required Johnston Police to perform a task – such as collecting and storing firearms – for which they would not be compensated, he left the door open.

Three bills related to gun control were passed in the New Hampshire Senate on Thursday, all by a vote of 13-10.

Two of the bills were amended and will need to go back to the House of Representatives for concurrence.

House Bill 514 was amended to require a three-day waiting period for purchases of a gun, rather than the original bill that sought seven days.

The Best Handgun Caliber – A Real World Study

Ammunition stopping power an important topic for anyone interested in armed self-defense. And it's especially important for preppers. The debate about which handgun caliber is best has raged for decades. It's hard to know what's real & what is a myth. To get anywhere close to the truth you would need to study hundreds of actual real world shootings.

Greg Ellifritz did just that.
 

Short Circuiting Third Rails – Abortion and Guns

I do mean exactly that. Where there is a demand, there will be a supply, whether we’re talking about alcohol, Schedule I drugs, guns, or abortions. Attempts to restrict access to any of those consistently fail, especially since such laws, proposed or enacted, typically aim at attacking the tool—for this article’s purpose, the firearm or the medical procedure—rather than addressing the factors that motivate problematic usage of those.
 

While Selling Trucks and Guns, this Shop Owner Trusts Sig

What two things go great together in Texas? You might be thinking cowboys and rodeos but, in this case, it’s trucks and guns. Meet Chris Moss, owner of Hill Country Truck Store and Firearms in Canyon Lake, Texas.

But he isn’t just the owner, he’s also a member, so to speak. He explained he picked a Sig Sauer P365 as his every day carry because of the capacity. The compact pistol comes with two 10-round magazines from the factory. And now that Sig offers a new 12 round mag, Moss said he thinks you just can’t beat having the that kind of capacity in a concealed carry gun

The Louisiana House on Tuesday passed proposals that would expand the state’s reach over local regulation of gun control and boost existing “stand your ground” laws, indicating a momentum of gun legislation in the state.

The House voted 68-30 to support a bill by Rep. Blake Miguez, R-Erath, which would eliminate the authority of local governments to prohibit the possession of firearms in certain businesses and public buildings.

Rep. Terry Landry, D-New Iberia, said local governments know what is best for their residents. “We cannot continue trumping local government rights,” Landry added.

In his rebuttal, Miguez highlighted the importance of Second Amendment rights.

“A good guy with a gun always stops a bad guy with a gun,” Miguez said.

Half of all Louisiana households own a gun, according to a report by the Violence Policy Center, which is a nonprofit that advocates for stricter gun control laws. Louisiana ranks fourth in the nation in gun-related deaths and gun ownership, according to the same report.
 

IL: ‘Fix the FOID Act’ bill could have saved lives in Aurora

The “Fix the FOID Act” bill would create a special police task force to round up guns from people whose permits have been revoked. It would require that FOID applicants be fingerprinted, at an average cost of about $28, and pay for background checks. It would make FOID cards good for five years instead of the current 10.

None of these modest measures would impose an undue burden on anybody’s Second Amendment right to own a gun.

But they might have saved the lives of five people in Aurora on Feb. 15, 2019.

Dozens of New Mexico sheriffs have declared their counties Second Amendment sanctuaries, meaning they plan to protect people's gun rights, even if it means going against new state laws.

One of the two new gun laws the state passed says people accused of domestic violence or who have a protective order against them can't have a gun.

While sheriffs around the state are saying that's unconstitutional, others say these sheriffs are just mouthpieces for a larger organization.

Three gun control bills, two involving the storage of firearms and one concerning the manufacture of guns without serial numbers, passed in the Connecticut Senate Thursday.

The bill known as "Ethan's Law" cleared the Senate on a 34 to 2 vote Thursday afternoon.

Ethan’s Law is in response to the death of 15-year-old Ethan Song, who shot himself with a handgun owned by a friend's father in January 2018. It requires both loaded and unloaded firearms to be safely stored in homes where there are minors under age 18.

PA: Pa. Senate gun bill simply supports existing laws

Philadelphia and Pittsburgh Mayors Jim Kenney and Bill Peduto recently coauthored an op-ed explaining why they oppose Pennsylvania Senate Bill 531 (SB 531), which prohibits local governments from regulating firearms.

SB 531 shouldn’t be necessary. It largely reiterates the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act, which itself reiterates Article I, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution, which in turn, reiterates the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. How many times and in how many forms does a law have to be enacted to be accepted by the political class?
