Amor Ftouhi, the Canadian accused of stabbing an airport security officer in Flint, tried to buy a gun at the Gibraltar Trade Center in Mt. Clemens shortly after arriving in the U.S. on Friday, FOX 2 has learned.

The FBI said that Ftouhi entered the country legally last week through Lake Champlain in Upstate New York. The Quebec resident then made his way to Michigan, where FOX 2 learned he visited the Gibraltar Trade Center and tried unsuccessfully to buy a gun.

The Gibralter Trade Center is a massive indoor marketplace where guns and knives are among the many items for sale by vendors who rent space. The last show was this weekend and it's not clear whether Ftouhi visited the trade center on Saturday or Sunday.
 

Democrats Cause Violence

A Bernie Sanders supporter tried to kill Republican politicians because their political beliefs were different than his. How did the “free love” generation morph into the “kill everyone who disagrees with me” mob? How did “question authority” turn into “free speech is violence?” How did the free-speech fundamentalists turn conservative speech in to “violence” and socialist violence into “free speech”? Necessity and desperation.

Democrats are outraged that their religion of big-government failed. They turned their disappointment outward, and that is why it is now politically approved for Democrats to shoot Republicans. Except it isn’t. It never was.

Colorado law allows designated school staff to carry concealed firearms on school grounds. These armed volunteers must first have their concealed carry permits. Now the are receiving advanced training to save lives.

17 faculty and administrators began an intense three-day training session to hone shooting skills, learn how to put a stop to an active shooter situation, and how to deal with the medical injuries of the aftermath.

Most school districts don't have the budgets for this advanced training. More teachers applied for training, but there was only enough money to train 17.

A double fatal shooting at a house near a middle school appears to be a case of self-defense, police said Thursday.

The two men who died apparently had a gun when they entered the home about 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, Brentwood police Lt. Walter O’Grodnick said. Police did not identify the pair, pending notification of relatives.

The shooter lived at the home in the 200 block of Birch Street and he was detained, then released, O’Grodnick said.

The study authors note that 3 million to 5 million firearms were produced each year from 1990 to 2005, but then grew exponentially, from 3.2 million firearms in 2005 to a peak of 10.3 million in 2013. The number has since come down a bit, but remain high, with nearly nine million firearms produced in 2015, the most recent year for which data are available.

Joe Arpaio said Saturday that Massachusetts has produced three good things: the Boston Tea Party, the Minutemen and himself.

Arpaio, the controversial former Maricopa County, Arizona, sheriff who hails from Springfield, spoke as the headliner of a rally in support of Second Amendment rights in Belchertown.

For about 45 minutes, Arpaio spoke on gun rights, illegal immigration and his pending federal trial on charges of contempt of court.
 

Update: NRA changes Carry Guard policy on 1911s, revolvers

The NRA revised guidelines for training courses provided by Carry Guard, its self-defense insurance policy, to include 1911 pistols and revolvers.

“In response to clear feedback surrounding the NRA Carry Guard Level I course announcement, we have modified the required firearm platforms as well as our site language to clearly articulate how firearms will be used in the class,” said Jason Brown, NRA media relations manager, in an email to Guns.com.

“Bottom line: our decision to not include 1911s and revolvers as primary firearms in our initial Level I course was a mistake, and we appreciate the feedback we have received from the firearms community,” he added.

Philando Castile did what you are supposed to do if you have a concealed-carry permit and get pulled over by police: He let the officer know he had a gun. Had Castile been less forthcoming, he would still be alive.

Last Friday, a Minnesota jury acquitted the cop who killed Castile of second-degree manslaughter, demonstrating once again how hard it is to hold police accountable when they use unnecessary force. The verdict also sends a chilling message to gun owners, since Castile is dead because he exercised his constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
 

LA: Steve Scalise shooting won't bring gun control, or an end to bully politics

Almost a year to the day before a left-wing nut with a semi-automatic rifle grievously injured Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise at baseball practice, a right-wing nut shot and stabbed the Labour MP Jo Cox to death on an English street.

This will be grist to the mill for Second Amendment absolutists, for whom the ability of an assassin to circumvent even the strictest gun control laws is proof enough that they don't work.

In February, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit dealt gun rights advocates a bitter defeat. In Kolbe v. Hogan , it upheld a Maryland law that bans "assault weapons" and detachable large-capacity magazines, holding that the Second Amendment offers no impediment to such prohibitory legislation.

Among the judges who joined the 10–4 decision was J. Harvie Wilkinson III, who during the George W. Bush administration was rumored to be on the president's shortlist of Supreme Court candidates.

Rock 'n' roll star Ted Nugent has said he plans to tone down his word choices in railing against liberals but he hasn't backed down in criticizing them.

A part-time Naples resident, Nugent talked to the Daily News this week in a 45-minute telephone interview. Here are more excerpts on why he believes President Obama for eight years was not a good commander in chief and how gun control makes America less safe.
 

NY: Reed says shootings won’t change his approach

The shooting of fellow House member Steve Scalise last week won’t change how Congressman Tom Reed goes about his job.

He still plans on getting out and talking with people as he always has, Reed told reporters in a conference call earlier this week.

The response came after a reporter asked the Corning Republican, who represents the 23rd District, if he planned on carrying a weapon with him when in public, which fellow Republican Congressman Chris Collins, R-27 of Clarence, said he plans to do. Collins’ comments drew criticism from Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Whenever there is a shooting, liberals have an answer that is not an answer, namely the charade of more gun control. Fine, try it, and maybe some voodoo along the way but it doesn’t work very well. There are better alternatives and what’s truly absurd in this debate is the demeaning expression “gun nuts.”

What about “gun control nuts?”

What about people who seem to think murders will go down if fewer guns are sold even though a major crime drop starting in the 1990s was accompanied by a huge increase in the number of guns?

Going to be reducing crime and we're securing that Second Amendment. I told you about that. And that looks like it's in good shape with Judge Gorsuch. That looks like it's in good shape.

(APPLAUSE)

I'd like to also take this moment to send our thoughts and prayers to our courageous friend, somebody that I've gotten to know very well, Steve Scalise, and everyone...

I’m your host Adam Kraut and today we are talking about carrying firearms on postal property. And no, we are not discussing shipping firearms through the mail.

The topic of post offices comes up rather frequently in conversation with regard to firearms. It is a place that many of us travel to in order to send certain things and a place that some of us have to travel to in order to collect our mail since the post office does not actually deliver to all residences. For instance, Jon has a PO Box for TGC.

 

MI: More guns now being purchased for self-defense than recreation

Although firearm violence kills or injures 100,000 Americans each year, most scientific research tends to focus on two aspects of this issue--victims of firearm violence and gun policies. Little attention has been paid to gun and ammunition or firearm manufacturers, dealers, and the industry lobby. In a new study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, researchers determined that there has been a shift towards more lethal weapons that appear to be designed primarily for self-defense, rather than recreational use, such as hunting, target shooting, or other forms of recreation.

Gun makers have boosted production in recent years, focusing on more high-caliber pistols and rifles designed for self-defense and shifting away from recreational firearms used for hunting and target shooting, the authors of a new study said.

Gun violence kills more than 36,000 Americans each year, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Authors of the study, published Thursday in The American Journal of Preventive Medicine, said research has focused on victims of gun violence and government policies, while their study is one of the first to focus on gun industry practices.

The news of an attempted assassination of conservative congressmen, senators and their allies by a deranged liberal extremist as they honed their baseball skills came as a shock to all of us. The evidence indicates it would have been a true tragedy had it not been for some motivated good guys with guns who happened to be on scene because a handful of congressional leaders are provided small security details. Had that one leader who was present forgotten to set his alarm clock or been summoned to a last-minute meeting on Capitol Hill, the funerals would likely still be proceeding.

In the three years since fatal police shootings of unarmed black people launched the Black Lives Matter movement, few officers have been charged and none has been convicted by juries in the highest-profile deaths that inspired protests across the country.

Experts cite a confluence of factors, including racial bias, attitudes toward law enforcement and the challenge of showing precisely what an officer was thinking in a high-pressure situation. In the end, many jurors are simply reluctant to reject the accounts provided by police.

After surviving what could have been a massacre of Republican members of Congress in Alexandria, Virginia, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks has introduced a bill that would allow lawmakers to carry a concealed weapon.

Brooks, who represents Limestone and Madison counties, introduced House Resolution 2940 Tuesday. Also known as the Congressional Self-Defense Act, it would allow lawmakers to carry a concealed weapon anywhere in America except the U.S. Capitol or when in the presence of the President or Vice President.

What? Is the NRA trying to create a new market? With gun sales plummeting since Trump's inauguration and the market among conservatives utterly saturated, ginning up fear of the groups they've armed makes perfect sales sense.

"Arming the Left" (by Michael Siebert, May 18) spins a dystopian tale of Nazis shooting crowds of demonstrators and posits, "Let's say you're black or Jewish or" fill in the blanks. "You're unarmed and your belief that something like this could never happen here has just been shattered."

While addressing “gun violence” at a North Minneapolis Conference on Peace, musician Stevie Wonder said it is contradictory to say, “Black Lives Matter” while black-on-black crime rages out of control.

According to Billboard magazine, Wonder said, “It is in your hands to do it. It is in your hands to stop all the killing and all the shooting wherever you might be. Because you cannot say, ‘Black lives matter,’ and then kill yourselves.”

When it comes the debate around to gun violence, we’re bombarded by tragedies like Columbine, Sandy Hook, San Bernardino, the list goes on. But framing the issue around mass shootings misses a crucial point: guns are not only being used to kill other people. Overwhelmingly, they’re being used by people ending their own lives.
