MI: A shift in gun culture means more Michigan women are packing heat

The number of women applying to carry a concealed weapon in Michigan has more than doubled since 2010. And in northern counties like Manistee and Grand Traverse, the numbers are even higher.

Linda Moleski is one of them. Moleski has her Concealed Pistol License and usually carries her Glock 26 nine-millimeter pistol. She can often be found at Shooters gun range in Traverse City, a shop that makes a point to be welcoming to women.

The Michigan Coalition of Responsible Gun Owners says most women seek Concealed Pistol Licenses to protect themselves and their families.

Ector says that in a typical CPL class, they learn more than just how to shoot a gun. There’s training on how to make yourself safer...

The Los Angeles Times was unwilling to publish a letter that the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) sent in, but the Wisconsin State Journal did publish the letter in their Sunday, May 3rd 2015 paper.
 

A varmint-hunter's dream cartridge: The .223 Remington

History has shown time and time again that the best way to guarantee the commercial success of a new centerfire cartridge is to have it adopted as the official U.S. or NATO service round.

This was, of course, the road to notoriety trodden by perennial favorites like the .30-06 Springfield, .45 ACP, 7.62x51mm NATO (.308 Winchester), 9mm Parabellum (Luger), and most recently by the ubiquitous 5.56x45mm NATO, which is the metric designation for the civilian .223 Remington. Due to the continued scarcity of .22LR ammunition, the utilitarian .223 Remington — which is already our most prolific tactical and self-defense cartridge — can now lay claim to the title of America’s most popular small bore varmint round.

This time, they are stark, raving, barking, howling mad. And they may be in charge. “They” would be the legislators who appear driven to make the Second Amendment superior to all our other rights. They would not even interfere with the “right” of a dangerously mentally ill person to have unfettered access to guns and ammunition. And they would block that person’s medical providers from tipping off the cops if their patient is about to explode.

Gun manufacturing advocacy group Defense Distributed and gun rights group the Second Amendment Foundation have filed a lawsuit against the State Department in the battle over a 3D-printed pistol, according to Wired.

The lawsuit included the State Department itself and several individual officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry. Defense Distributed, the company founded by gun rights advocate Cody Wilson, claimed that its First Amendment rights had been violated by a Department of Defense Trade Control decision not to allow Defense Distributed to publish files for 3D-printable firearms.

And Paul, a senator from Kentucky, told boosters that, even amid concerns of national security, they need to respect all of the Bill of Rights.

"Every Republican seems to be good with the Second Amendment,' Paul said. "But if you want to defend the Second Amendment, you've got to defend the Fourth Amendment, you've got to defend the First Amendment.'

The appellate court ruling did not halt the NSA practices, with the judges noting that law is set to expire, meaning Congress will have to revisit it soon. But Paul said the spying really started with an executive order.

Every year the Brady Campaign produces their State Scorecard, ranking which states have the “strongest gun laws.”

Every year, we prove there is no correlation between what Brady thinks is a good gun control law and violent crime.

This year, we decided enough is enough. To end the ongoing canard called the Brady Campaign State Scorecard, we embarked on a preliminary study of the effectiveness of gun control and gun rights legislation, to see what has an effect on violence.

Police say the shooter, Jehrardd Williams, acted in self defense and will not be charged.

Fields was shot three times as he tried to attack Williams—who had already been punched in the face by another friend of Fields.

Crimson Trace, the industry leader in elevating laser sighting systems to standard equipment on concealed carry and personal defense firearms, now offers gun owners several avenues to education for those firearm uses.

First-time gun buyers and female gun owners often are the leading groups seeking more information about firearms and shooting skills improvement. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s “First-Time Gun Buyers” report, one of the most important factors behind a first gun purchase is preparing for home- and self-defense.

Rev. Franklin Graham has responded to the FBI's revelation that there are "hundreds, maybe thousands" of people across the country who are receiving recruitment overtures from the Islamic State to attack the U.S., emphasizing that the terror group must "remember that in America, we shoot back." On Thursday, FBI Director James Comey revealed that the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, is leveraging social media in unprecedented ways through Twitter and other social media platforms, sending messages to the smartphones of "disturbed people' who could potentially launch assaults on U.S. targets.

For the past two elections, we have benefitted from a spirited contest of ideas over how our communities and families should be represented in the Texas House.

Twice, the voters have honored me to take our voice to the Legislature in Austin, where I am presently. So far this legislative session, I have co-authored and helped the House to pass “open carry” legislation to protect the Second Amendment, landmark border security legislation that will make Texas the first state in the nation with a permanent plan to secure the border, and a $4.87 billion tax cut package that includes the first sales tax cut in Texas history.

Add the Shooters Committee on Public Education to the gun groups pressing for an upstate senator who opposed the SAFE Act to potentially succeed Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, R-Nassau County.

As the jockeying continues over if and when Skelos will step aside amid federal corruption charges, gun-rights groups have been aggressive in pushing upstate Republican senators to back one of their own for Skelos' seat -- particularly Syracuse Sen. John DeFrancisco instead of Long Island Sen. John Flanagan.

SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb is still considering his next move, while grassroots Second Amendment activists are encouraging an appeal. Plaintiffs in the lawsuit do not have boatloads of cash, as do the I-594 backers with their support from anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, and local wealthy elites.

As Gottlieb noted yesterday, “It is mind boggling that a law-abiding citizen evidently must put their civil rights, not to mention their clean criminal record, at risk before a court can rule whether a law is constitutional.”

Former Congresswoman and advocate for safer communities, Gabrielle Giffords, came to Delaware on Thursday to show support for a new senate bill intended to expand existing protections for victims of domestic abuse.

"Dangerous people with guns are a threat to women. That makes gun violence a women's issue – for mothers, for families, for me and you," said Giffords, a gun owner and strong supporter of the Second Amendment and responsible gun ownership.
