MI: Michigan becomes 'gator country: Man shoots alligator that lunged at him in Tuscola County

Out collecting minnows one recent morning in rural Tuscola County, a local man heard an odd hissing sound. A moment later, an apex predator lunged at him.

Not a bear, wolf, or other fierce mammal native to Michigan, but an alligator.

Pulling a pistol, the man survived the encounter; the large reptile did not.

As a longtime subscriber myself, I must say that to see an article on firearms (actually showing someone shooting one) that is positive, and dare I say, supporting the safe, lawful and correct use of firearms for self-defense was, well, shocking. Safe and lawful firearm owners have been saying for decades that they are not the problem, and this training class is a perfect example.
 

What’s Most Important? Law & Order or Politics?

Let's think about priorities. Say that you live in one of the dangerous high crime and poor schooling neighborhoods of cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit or St. Louis.

Which is most important to you: doing something about public safety and raising the quality of education or, as most black politicians do, focusing energies upon President Donald Trump and who among the 20 presidential contenders will lead the Democratic Party? The average American has no inkling about the horrible conditions in which many blacks live. Moreover, they wouldn't begin to tolerate living under those conditions themselves.
 

TX: Presidio County Brings Texas into 2A Sanctuary Movement

Two weeks after Presidio County became the first county in Texas to declare itself a “Second Amendment Sanctuary,” the Earth is still turning, the sky hasn’t fallen and the Lone Star still shines bright as ever, maybe brighter.

As Ammoland reported back on April 19, there is a good formula for creating a “sanctuary” for gun owners’ rights. That formula has been working in Washington State, Illinois and other places where citizens are fed up with government trying to micro-manage their lives, while turning a constitutionally-enumerated right into a government-regulated privilege.

The Oklahoma Legislature passed its “Stand Your Ground” law in 2006 to give citizens expanded rights when it comes to safety and self-defense.

Under the law, a person is presumed to have reasonable fear of imminent death or harm when using extreme force for self-defense against someone who unlawfully enters their home, workplace or place of worship.
 

CA: 2nd Amendment doesn’t mean California must allow semiautomatic rifles, judge rules

A federal judge has upheld California’s ban on owning, manufacturing or selling semiautomatic rifles and the “bullet buttons” that convert a conventional rifle into a rapid-fire weapon.

Semiautomatic rifles are “incredibly effective killing machines” that are not commonly used or necessary for self-defense, said U.S. District Judge Josephine Staton of Santa Ana. She rejected a challenge to the law by the California Rifle & Pistol Association, an arm of the National Rifle Association.
 

NV: Negative Firearm Regulations Are Boiling Over Into Nevada

Attorney Don Green has some comments on some wins and losses for our pro-self-defense and pro-Second Amendment rights this year in Nevada.

Among the wins are the failure of our new Democrat Governor and Legislature to add a “Good Cause” requirement to our current “Shall Issue” Concealed Carry Permit law.

This anti-gun law failure was entirely due to continual lobbying and testimony at every legislative hearing by members and friends of the Nevada Firearms Coalition, The Firearms Policy Coalition, the NRA-ILA and concerned citizens from everywhere Nevada.
 

Federal Court: Semi-autos 'indistinguishable' from M-16s

A federal judge this week upheld California’s ban on many popular semi-auto firearms, saying they were “essentially indistinguishable from M-16s.”

The order, in a case brought by several gun owners in 2017 seeking to declare California’s “assault weapon” ban unconstitutional, saw U.S. District Judge Josephine Staton side with the state’s point of view. Staton, extensively citing briefs in the case from anti-gun groups such as the Brady Center, Everytown and Giffords, found that semi-autos banned either by name or cosmetic features such as collapsible stocks or muzzle brakes were basically military-grade hardware.

There's an upsurge in approved carry concealed weapon (CCW) licenses in San Diego County.

Data provided to Team 10 by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department shows a more than 300 percent increase from 2017 to 2018.

Advocates say most people want the ability to protect themselves while opponents argue more people carrying guns doesn't make the streets any safer.

The California Rifle & Pistol Association asked San Diego-based U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez to halt the checks and related restrictions on ammunition sales.
 

CA: California gun laws continue to be enforced in Needles

Needles City Councilor Timothy Terral called the declaration a first step to start to change California law regarding firearms when the council brought his proposal to the agenda in June. California law hasn’t changed, and the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department, with which Needles contracts for police services, is still enforcing it. In fact, the wording of the resolution making the declaration official, approved by the council July 9, changed after it was posted as part of the agenda packet.

But the even sadder truth is that, ever since the originalist intellectual project began in earnest in the early 1980s with the advent of the Federalist Society and the Reagan-era nomination of Antonin Scalia to the Court, the originalist project has been generally failing. There have undoubtedly been doctrinal victories — 1995's U.S. v. Lopez on the Commerce Clause, 2008's D.C. v. Heller on the Second Amendment, and 2010's Citizens United v. F.E.C. on the First Amendment all come to mind — but those victories have been more than overwhelmed by doctrinal losses and the generally lethargic and balkanized nature of the broader originalist project.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
