Good neighbors are more precious than gold… and guns are great for self defense. These are my “takeaways” from the following story…

A homeowner in Wesley Chapel, FL was reportedly relaxing in his home shortly after midnight when he heard the sound of breaking glass and responded by grabbing a gun. I’d call that a good first response.

When he spotted an armed and masked man coming at him down a long hallway, the homeowner shot him.

When a second armed man followed the first, gunfire was exchanged and another bad guy fell.

Members of the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly voted recently to make the borough a Second Amendment “sanctuary.”

The assembly voted at its July 7 meeting, held via Zoom, to affirm its commitment to supporting citizen rights to keep and bear arms. The ordinance, sponsored by Mayor Charlie Pierce and assembly members Jesse Bjorkman, Norm Blakely and Kenn Carpenter, opposes the passage of any legislation that would “restrict individual rights protected by the Second Amendment” of the U.S. Constitution. The ordinance also declared the borough a “Second Amendment Sanctuary.”

The prosecutor investigating the St. Louis couple who aimed guns at protesters says she has received racist attacks and death threats that have worsened as President Trump has thrown his support behind the couple.

“This is a modern-day night ride, and everybody knows it,” St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner (D) said in an interview with The Washington Post, referring to the terroristic forays of the Ku Klux Klan into African American neighborhoods in the 19th and 20th centuries. “And for a president to participate in it, in the larger context of racism and cronyism, is scary.”

“The NRA [National Rifle Association] has been spreading insurrectionist rhetoric for the past few decades, undermining Americans’ trust in their legislators and the federal government, while passing for a patriotic organization,” says the study’s lead author, Claire Boine, an SPH research scholar in community health sciences. “The result is a few million people who are convinced that any genuine firearm violence prevention effort is the first step in a scheme to take away all of their rights and disenfranchise them.”

Grief and rage swept the country after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in late May. His death renewed debate about racialized police violence and the disproportionate killing of Black Americans, who are up to four times likelier than white Americans to be killed by police.

That debate has typically centered on policing itself. But Maj Toure, the founder of Black Guns Matter, has taken another tack: Advocating for Black Americans to take up arms for self-defense.

A few men associated with a new self-defense group, called Watchmen, marched alongside the crowd, open-carrying shotguns and handguns with three purposes in mind: to provide self-defense; to illustrate the radically different way in which police treat armed Black men and armed White men; and to normalize the image of Black men with guns.

"Banning types of firearms is a prohibition, not a mere condition, infringing on the right to keep and bear arms and greatly reducing Lowman's means of self-defense," the judge wrote.

The judge issued a narrow injunction blocking the state from enforcing the law against 18-,19- and 20-year-olds seeking to buy handguns.

Add Subway sandwich shops to the list of responsible businesses that demonstrate care for the safety and comfort of customers and employees.

The Milford-headquartered franchise changed its policy and will now ban the open carrying of firearms in its restaurants, even in states where open carry is permitted, following similar moves by businesses such as Target, Walmart, Whole Foods, CVS and Walgreens.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
