The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that killed a man early Saturday morning.

When deputies arrived on scene, they said a man came out of the home, complied with their commands and was detained.

Inside the home, they found an unresponsive man with a gunshot wound. He died at the scene. His name has not yet been released.

The detained man is being questioned, but deputies said no arrests have been made at this time. They are investigating his claim of self-defense.

People who stand up to violent criminals resonate with Americans of all walks of life. The courage to fight back against crime is heroic. Everybody believes this today except the woke prosecutors in our midst.

One of the most notorious woke prosecutors is New York City District Attorney Alvin Bragg. He brought charges against Jose Alba, 61, who stabbed an ex-con and assailant to death at a bodega shop he owned. After an earlier argument with the attacker’s girlfriend about not paying for an item, Alba defended himself when the perpetrator went behind the counter to assault him.

A U.S. Army sergeant accused of murdering a demonstrator at a 2020 police brutality protest in Downtown Austin was set to face a judge Friday, but the date was canceled.

Almost exactly two years ago, on July 25, 2020, Daniel Perry was working as a rideshare driver when he took a turn onto a road where a group of people were protesting police brutality. That wrong turn led to tragedy.

More than four years after a melee on a street in Treme ended with a fatal shooting caught on video, an Orleans Parish jury has acquitted the man charged in the case.

Jurors acquitted Carlsel Alexander, 26, who faced potential life imprisonment on a second-degree murder charge. Alexander was accused of killing Troy Wilson Jr. during a fight among several people in the 700 block of N. Broad Street early Feb. 18, 2018.

First set for trial in 2020 two months before the COVID-19 pandemic began, Alexander’s trial was repeatedly delayed in the years since.

The Los Angeles Police Department has stopped enforcing California’s state law banning “high capacity” magazines, according to an internal LAPD email obtained by the Second Amendment Foundation’s Investigative Journalism Project.

The email was sent Wednesday morning to all LAPD personnel by Commander Ernest Eskridge, assistant commanding officer of the department’s Detective Bureau.

Eskridge noted that on June 23, the “United States Supreme Court vacated the ruling in Duncan v. Bonta and remanded the case back to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal for further consideration in light of its recent decision in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen.”

The lawsuit names Nathaniel McQueen, secretary of the Department of Safety and Homeland Security, and Col. Melissa Zebley, superintendent of Delaware State Police, as defendants, since the agency would enforce the law.

Byerely says state law keeps the information private.

” I was elected to protect their rights and their freedoms and to uphold the laws. That is a law in the state of Missouri that we don’t give out that private information,” said Sheriff Byerely.

Camden County sheriff’s officials say they’ll also keep CCW information private.

”That’s fundamental to our Second Amendment rights that every American has, and when you start questioning who can have access and why would we not allow access? Or why as a permit holder would I not want someone to know that is because it’s really none of their business,” said Sgt. Scott Hines.
 

Will More Europeans Now Advocate for the Right to Self-Defense?

In order to understand the chaos of European politics and the resulting regulation of civilian firearms ownership, one has to step back in time and consider the historic developments. In Europe, to own or carry a weapon—namely a gun—was seldom a right. Sometimes it could become a duty, such as when called up for the defense of the realm. For a select minority, the ruling or aristocratic class, it was considered a privilege, along with the right to hunt on their own estates.
 

CA: Governor Gavin Newsom signs new gun control law modeled after Texas anti-abortion law

On Friday Governor Gavin Newsom signed a controversial first-in-the-nation gun control law patterned after a Texas anti-abortion law. His action comes one month after U.S. Supreme Court's conservative justices overturned a woman's constitutional right to abortions and undermined gun control laws in states including California.

Newsom signed the bill into law that allows private citizens to bring a civil action against anyone who manufactures, distributes, transports or imports assault weapons or ghost guns, which are banned in the state. Those who sue would be awarded at least $10,000 in civil damages for each weapon, plus attorneys fees.

A federal judge on Friday temporarily suspended an assault rifle ban passed by the town of Superior, Colorado, in the wake of a mass shooting last year.

Gun rights organizations Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and the National Association for Gun Rights joined Superior resident Charles Walker in suing the town on July 7 claiming Second and Fourteenth Amendment violations.

“The court concludes that plaintiffs have a strong likelihood of success on the merits,” wrote U.S. District Judge Raymond Moore in a 19-page opinion.

“H.R. 6538, the Active Shooter Alert Act of 2022, is not a public safety tool, but rather an anti-gun propaganda program intended to further public hysteria by hyper-inflating the authentic number of ‘active shooter’ incidents to expand support for unconstitutional gun control measures,” Gun Owners of America advised members in a mid-July alert. “Under the Active Shooter Alert Act of 2022, justified self-defense shootings, gang violence, drug violence, or accidental shootings will be used to send alerts to the American people about the presence of an ‘active shooter’ to intentionally misguide the public and create mass hysteria.”

Today U.S. District Judge Raymond P. Moore issued a temporary restraining order against the ban on so-called "assault weapons" recently enacted by the town of Superior, Colorado, in Boulder County. The case is Rocky Mountain Gun Owners v. Superior.

Lead attorney for the plaintiffs was Barry Arrington, one of Colorado's top lawyers on education law, and now the victor in a major Second Amendment case. Arrington previously served in the Colorado House of Representatives, and as a trustee of the Independence Institute, where I work.

It has been an important few weeks for the public's Second Amendment rights. In the first major gun rights decision since 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the right to carry a concealed firearm by striking down a New York state law that made it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed weapon outside their home legally, and wrongfully required individuals to demonstrate a “special need” for self-protection to qualify for a carry license. This was a major victory that will affect at least six other states with similar restrictive licensing requirements, also known as “may issue” laws.
 

U.S. House panel advances assault weapons ban on party-line vote

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee has passed legislation that would ban certain semi-automatic weapons, in a renewed push to ban the guns most commonly used in recent mass shootings.

The party-line 25-18 vote followed recent mass shootings in which AR-15 style rifles were used — in Uvalde, Texas, where 19 children and two teachers were murdered, and Buffalo, New York, where 10 people were killed.

The chair of the committee, Jerry Nadler, said that the more than 100-page bill that would place a ban on assault weapons, H.R. 1808, is nothing new and Congress passed a 10-year ban on assault weapons in 1994.

Time was when students in high school could carry firearms on subways to school for target practice or in pickups for hunting afterward without alarming anyone. But the world has changed, and for the worse. We now have lunatics on the loose as never before.

The liberal reaction is, of course, to strip the innocent of any means of self-defense. As pundit Jim Treacher puts it, they say “America is a shooting gallery. Nowhere is safe. You could be murdered at any moment...now quick, give us your guns!”

Members of Mom’s Demand Action — a group that advocates for legislation to curb gun violence and access to weapons — launched Be SMART in 2015 with the goal of lessening the political charge surrounding conversations about guns.

Oboikowitch said she was drawn to the campaign for exactly that reason.

“Everyone can get behind this; no one can really argue with it,” Oboikowitch said. “That’s why I like it so much.”
