Armed civilians stopped criminals and saved lives.. again. Some of us even stopped mass murder!

That is right; people like you saved lives until the police arrived.

Honest armed citizens defend themselves and their families thousands of times a day. Here a few of the self-defense gun stories in April.

Do you think these firearms owners were lucky, or were they prepared?

It is urgent for Illinois firearm owners to know the anti-rights crowd has mounted an all-out attack against gun stores and gun owners!

As is their pattern, they have waited until the end of the legislative session when bills can be called on at a moment’s notice and shell bills can be used to disguise the content until the last minute!

Fischer's research led her to the Brady Center. "They are a very moderate, responsible and comprehensive organization, and I decided that was the group I wanted to work with," said the actress, dressed in a cap-sleeve dress by Rubin Singer. So she joined a number of actors and industry types at the organization's event, which honored Bill Clinton, Oscar-winning producer Dede Gardner and philanthropist David Bohnett.

The document begins with a 10-point bill of rights that almost perfectly parrots the federal equivalent, including the Second Amendment, which drew an objection from one citizen who questioned whether the guarantee was appropriate for a city that has long been plagued by gun violence.
 

MN: Minnesota Man Sues St Cloud; He Claims His Second Amendment Rights Were Violated

Tyler Gottwalt has a permit to carry a gun. He says the city has a gun law that is more restrictive than the state statute on carrying a firearm in public. The local law allows a person to carry a handgun in public with a permit, but prohibits firearms that aren't carried in a case or "broken apart."

The St. Cloud Times says police cited Gottwalt for possessing a gun that wasn't cased. A Stearns County District Court judge later dismissed the charges against Gottwalt.

His lawsuit alleges false arrest, illegal imprisonment, malicious prosecution and violation of his Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Gov. Deal rightly rejected both. He could have made easy, though wrong, choices. If Deal had signed the bills, he’d have merely gone along with the GOP majority in the Legislature. A more-wily route would have been to simply do nothing, and let the legislation become law by default.

To his great credit, the governor courageously vetoed both. We believe history will approve of his actions.

On cue, this Tuesday’s primary results in Indiana (which were disappointing to many in the movement) was met with a new call to surrender on the battle over the Supreme Court. Leon Wolf, the managing editor of RedState called for Republicans to immediately bring up a vote on Judge Merrick Garland. Wolf looked into his crystal ball and declared the November election over and said that nominees by President Clinton with a Democrat Senate will be worse than Garland and younger, so they will influence the Court longer. He doubled down on the argument in a CNN appearance as the media tried to give more oxygen to his arguments.

Dingell is introducing legislation to restrict convicted stalkers from buying guns.

"Right now, people who have been convicted of stalking, even if it's plead down from a felony charge, can get access to a gun," she said. "They can legally get a gun. So what this is... what our bill would say: If you have been convicted of criminal stalking that you can't pass the background check."

On May 5, the Missouri House voted 101-28 to pass legislation that will allow concealed carry on campuses and on various modes of public transportation.

The concealed carry provisions were attached to a bill “aimed at capping fees for concealed carry applicants at $100 and giving a grace period to members of the military whose permits to carry concealed expire while they’re on active duty.”

Women are the new demographic when it comes to gun sales.

Why is that?

After speaking to a women’s-only gun club in Virginia Beach, NewsChannel 3 is getting answers.

The 757 Ladies Packing Heat Club has about 100 members who all say their goal is self-defense. Many of the women in the class are trying to arm themselves in order to protect their life, their property and the lives of their family members if the need arises.

Thomas Baines (Your Views, April 27) wrote that he could not “understand the logic or purpose of proposed legislation that would allow an untrained, unexamined person to openly carry a firearm in public places.” The Second Amendment gives me the right to purchase and carry a gun openly or concealed without a permit. The legislation would partially restore the God-given right that the state has taken from me. The next step is to let me carry a gun concealed without a permit.

People on site at the time say two men confronted another man who ended up pulling a knife and stabbing them as he escaped.

Witnesses say the men who were stabbed were the aggressors. They're being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The man accused of pulling the knife fled the job site. No word if he's in custody.

After two cases of homeowners in Western Washington shooting intruders in the last week, local gun shops say it's not uncommon to see an uptick in gun sales, as people worry about home invasions and look for ways to protect their families.

Early Thursday morning, a father in Shoreline shot an intruder in the leg as his wife and kids hid in a back bedroom inside their house. One week before that, an 80-year-old woman in Snohomish County shot and killed a man who broke into her home in and stabbed her husband.

Barb Moles, 80, has eight grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and one harrowing tale of self-defense.

Moles will tell you she's anything but the average octogenarian, and now she has another story to prove it - one that ends with her taking an intruder's life.

When an intruder broke into her house and beat her husband with a crowbar, she went from doting wife to formidable opponent.

Jamie Gilt — who bragged on social media about her son’s shooting skills just a day before the boy opened fire on her in March — must attend a gun safety course and give talks about the accident as part of an agreement protecting her from criminal charges, according to Florida State Attorney R.J. Larizza.

The 31-year-old Jacksonville mom must also install proper gun safety storage in her car and house, Larizza said in a statement.

Maybe that’s true or maybe it is not, but on a daily basis I can see all kinds of mayhem occurring by allowing college kids to be armed. I am pretty sure Gov. Nathan Deal could, too.

College kids don’t always react the way you think they might, and I shudder to think about what could happen on a given Friday or Saturday night — or Tuesday or Thursday night — if more people were packing. I think the whole issue of guns on campus is really a knee-jerk reaction to the pervasive fear that the government is trying to stifle all of our rights, including the right to bear arms.

Outraged by the promulgation of State Police regulations making a tiny incremental improvement in right to carry recommended by Governor Christie, Senate Democrats led by Senator Loretta Weinberg (D-37) are fast-tracking SCR101, a legal trick that could kill the new regulations before they are even formally adopted.

Only in the Garden State do lawmakers openly block self-defense by those facing serious threats and tout it as a good thing.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) applauds Tennessee lawmakers for the enactment of an NRA-backed campus safety law that expands the protection of law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment right to self-defense.

Sponsored by Senator Mike Bell and Representative Andy Holt, Senate Bill 2376 allows full-time employees of public universities and colleges to carry a concealed handgun while on school property if that employee holds a valid Tennessee concealed carry permit.

According to the FBI, more than two million gun-purchase background checks were conducted in April, 400,000 more than in April a year ago. In fact, every month since last May, background checks have set new records, putting 2016 on track to beat 2015 for the number of checks conducted by the National Instate Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

The Washington Post is reporting this afternoon that a federal law enforcement officer who had been stripped of his gun, credentials and badge in March and was wanted in connection with the slaying of his wife is now in custody.

The suspect is identified by WTKR as Eulalio Tordil, described as “a law enforcement officer with the Federal Protective Service.” The crime happened in Maryland, a state with very strict gun laws, but the fact that a protective order was issued against him two months ago evidently didn’t prevent the death of Gladys Tordil.

For several years now, I've been involved in crafting legislation that restores state law balance to our Second Amendment right to bear arms. Decades of well-meaning state government laws and agency interpretations had eroded the fundamental liberty of our citizens to carry weapons for self-defense, a right so fundamental that it is given prominence in both our federal and state constitutions.

A gunmaker in Daytona Beach, Fla., seems to have the same question and is working to build guns that are safer and work as well as a gun without high-tech safeguards.

“We’re gun people, so we know when you pick up a gun you want to shoot it,” said Jonathan Mossberg, a gunmaker whose family makes shotguns used by law enforcement, hunters and the military. “You don’t want to swipe your finger. You don’t want to talk to it. In an emergency situation, you want to pick it up and use it.”

According to The Associated Press, Mossberg’s iGun Technology Corp. uses a ring on the users hand that “talks” to a circuit board embedded in a firearm to let it know the user is authorized.

Presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is coming to the Pacific Northwest this weekend, and according to today’s Seattle Times, his campaign stop tomorrow in Lynden will give him a taste of liberal tolerance; which means, of course, he’s going to be spoon fed a dose of political castor oil.

The newspaper said “Labor unions and other groups started organizing their response when word of a likely Trump visit surfaced more than a week ago. They’ve been distributing fliers in English and Spanish headlined ‘Stop Trump. Shut It Down!’”
