Just down the road, another bank has become famous for its policy welcoming in firearms.

For about ten years, the Chappell Hill Bank has allowed licensed concealed carry holders to come inside their lobby armed.

"If you were so inclined, which I'm sure you're not, to rob a bank, would you go in one that said 'no weapons allowed' or one that said 'concealed carry welcome'? If you were ever thinking about it, you'd go in one that said 'no weapons allowed,'" said Edward A. Smith, Chappell Hill Bank President.

Smith says the bank has been robbed five times since it opened in 1907, and zero times since they started allowing guns. They also have a reward sign for dead bank robbers.

Casper’s elected city and school board officials have repeatedly discussed school safety since Feb. 14, when a gunman killed 17 people in Florida. They’ve discussed arming staff and hiring more school resource officers to better protect the Natrona County School District’s buildings.

FL: Hearing set in Police ‘Stand Your Ground’ Case

The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments Aug. 28 in a dispute about whether a Broward County sheriff’s deputy could use the state’s “stand your ground” self-defense law after being charged with manslaughter in an on-duty shooting. Justices agreed in February to take up an appeal by Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office and issued an order Friday scheduling the August oral arguments. Bondi’s office contends that Deputy Peter Peraza was not legally entitled to claim immunity under the “stand your ground” law in the 2013 shooting death of Jermaine McBean. Instead, Bondi’s office contends, officers can seek a more-limited type of immunity under another part of state law.

With Thursday’s court-mandated changes of the ballot title for Initiative 1639 – the latest gun control scheme from the billionaire-backed Alliance for Gun Responsibility – the fight is on as paid signature gatherers are now hitting the streets to gather what the Everett Herald estimated must be close to 350,000 signatures, while grassroots rights groups are energizing the opposition. The action comes less than two months after thousands of gun owners rallied in the state capitol steps in Olympia to oppose further restrictions on their right to keep and bear arms, and four months after they testified against such measures before the Legislature.

California’s Suicide Rate is Among America’s lowest – Maybe Because We Control Guns

It is an article of faith among opponents of gun control in California that this state’s tough firearm laws are pointless – that try as we might, sick people will do what sick people do, and death, as ever, will have its way. But one of the key takeaways from the stunning report released last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the difference that can be made by measures that keep lethal weapons out of the hands of people in crisis.

San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa today called for a ban on gun shows at the Cow Palace in Daly City as a two-day gun show got underway at the venue. Crossroads of the West, a Utah-based company, is holding a gun show at the Cow Palace Saturday and Sunday. The show is taking place just four days after county supervisors voted unanimously in support of proposed state legislation that would ban gun shows at the Cow Palace. "The state should not profit from the sales of guns," Canepa said in a statement. "For 15 years this board has urged the state to ban gun shows at the Cow Palace to no avail."

After seeing the recent uptick in school shootings around the country, former police officer Rick Noble is offering a free concealed carry class to teachers in central Illinois. "An active shooter will kill eight people a minute, average,” Noble said. "If somebody calls and says there is an active shooter in our school, it's going to take the police at least a minute to two minutes to get there, if they're in a big district. 20 minutes in a rural district."

On May 6, the Tribune printed an AP story headlined " 'Good guys with guns' sometimes make honest mistakes." The story said "in a span of 48 hours in March the three [good guys] were responsible for gun safety lapses that put students in danger." The authors go on to mention that the "nonprofit Gun Violence Archive (GVA) revealed more than 30 publicly reported mishaps since 2014 [by officers and teachers on campuses]." Let's break that down.

After last week’s column, in which I lauded the benefits of opossums, snakes and such, I received more than one email suggesting I did not understand the benefits of killing animals for food. I was perplexed because I too have a freezer full of 100-percent organic protein (aka wild game).
