When the legislature returns next week, three anti-gun bills will be considered in the respective Appropriations Committees. Please contact the committees and urge their opposition.

Mass shootings are extremely rare in America. But you wouldn’t know that if you listened to politicians and much of the media. Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said in a recent Senate hearing on gun control that there had been 309 mass shootings in America so far this year. CNN reported that “U.S. mass shootings are on pace to match last year—the worst ever.”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said on the floor that there were 13 mass shootings across the country in just one weekend. Major media outlets like The New York Times, NBC News, and ABC News all reported on the—allegedly—“hundreds” of mass shootings this year.

Earlier in the month, Alba had been arrested in Manhattan and charged with murder after defending himself from 35-year-old Austin Simon’s attack.

You probably didn’t see these stories covered by the mainstream news media, but again last week, responsible gun owners defended themselves and the people they love. Self-defense instructor Heather Reeves joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or did they have a plan?
 

CO: Obama-Appointed Judge Wrecks Local Colorado Effort to Ban Rifles

The landmark New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen decision struck down justifiable need clauses for concealed carry permits as unconstitutional. It affirmed our right to carry firearms outside the home for self-defense. It’s the law of the land. Liberals just have to deal with it. In Colorado, a local ordinance to ban so-called assault rifles got struck down by an Obama-appointed judge. Millions of Americans own the AR-15 rifle. It fits the bill when referring to weapons that are “common use.” This legal fight is in Superior, Colorado, outside of Denver.

Old Groaner Skull, Right side, bullet hole shows finishing shot. The bullet hole measures from .8025 inches to .6510 inches across, according to Haley Chambers of the Ketchikan Museums.
Part I. The events which started the story

In early November 1935, at the upper reaches of the Unuk river in Southeastern Alaska, prospector, trapper, and logger, Bruce Johnstone, shot a near-world record grizzly bear in self-defense. The bear had been shot in the head previously but had survived and healed, leaving the skull deformed and the bear blind on the right side.

The recent Supreme Court decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Ass’n was aimed at a citizen’s right to carry a concealed handgun, or more aptly, the ability of a state to require a showing of cause or real apprehended danger before issuing a license to carry in public. In essence, the Court held a citizen must be permitted to carry a gun for defense outside the home—concealed or open carry must be allowed. One or the other must be permitted; both modes of carry cannot be prohibited.

The issue of gun rights is on the minds of Republicans in Bay County as they get ready to choose their candidates in next month’s primary races.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has promised to sign “constitutional carry” legislation, allowing people to openly carry firearms without a permit, if Republicans in the legislature pass it. Both GOP candidates running for state Senate District 2 have promised to support it. However, they’re divided on Florida’s “red flag” law, which allows law enforcement to temporarily take away someone’s guns if they pose a “significant danger” to themselves or others.

Tzvi Waldman is head of the New York State Jewish Gun Club.

He’s been dispersing a poster to businesses around the Hudson Valley that reads, “Concealed Carry is Welcome Here. Thank you for keeping our children safe. May Hashem continue to watch over us.”

Business owners can ‘opt out’ of new restrictions that prohibit carrying guns on private property

The posters are designed for store owners to alert customers they can carry a firearm into the store.

According to recent reporting from The Evening Tribune, Waldman has been outspoken against the recent gun laws approved by the state Legislature.

Summer afternoon: They’re called the two most beautiful words in the English language.

My vote for ugliest words goes to: political realities.

The wages of those realities were exacted at the Highland Park, Ill., Fourth of July parade, planned as a traditional celebration of summer and freedom. Instead, it became a violent instance of another tradition in America: peaceful citizens regularly slaughtered in the name of a freedom that most Americans – and many worldwide – believe has gone off the rails.

The testimony of a Fort Worth patrol officer in the murder trial of a former Water Department surveyor accused in the 2018 killing of a homeless man was one of the factors that led to the surveyor’s acquittal, an attorney said. Fort Worth Officer James Reynolds testified last week as a witness called by defense attorneys for 64-year-old Daniel Hammack in his trial. A Tarrant County jury found Hammack not guilty of murder.

An organization of gun owners mounted a new legal challenge to Colorado’s nearly decade-old ban on large-capacity magazines Thursday, citing a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court last month that was seen as a major expansion of gun rights.

The National Foundation for Gun Rights, the legal arm of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, sued Gov. Jared Polis in U.S. District Court in Denver, asking a federal judge to strike down as unconstitutional the state’s 2013 ban on magazines that hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition, enacted in the wake of the Aurora theater shooting.
 

How Many People Have To Be Assaulted or Killed Before Chuck Schumer Stops Resisting Marijuana Banking Reform?

In March, a security guard at Euphorium Marijuana Shop in Covington, a Seattle suburb, shot and killed an armed robber who had taken a fellow employee hostage. "Anybody that would put their life out there to protect someone else is absolutely a hero," Lindsey Evans, the store's general manager, told the Fox station in Seattle.

Federal law does not view that guard as heroic. For discharging a weapon possessed "in furtherance of drug trafficking," he would face a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence. And since he "cause[d] the death of a person through the use of a firearm," he could face up to life in prison under the same statute.

That data is very much in line with a report from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the firearms industry’s trade association, which found that more AR-15 and AK-47-style “modern sporting rifles” have been sold than all the F-150s on the road. Some 4.5 million AR-15s/AK-47s have been sold just since 2020 when Joe Biden called for a ban on such firearms.

“This is a truly significant figure that demonstrates – again – the popularity of this commonly-owned style of rifle,” said NSSF President and CEO Joe Bartozzi.
 

AZ: Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Sues Biden Administration to Protect Second Amendment

Attorney General Mark Brnovich submitted a complaint against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Acting Director of ATF. General Brnovich is co-leading a 17-state coalition, joining Morehouse Enterprises, Gun Owners of America, and Gun Owners Foundation to fight the Biden administration over the ATF’s unconstitutional rulemaking that would regulate firearm parts manufacturers.

The rulemaking seeks to, among other things, regulate unfinished, non-functional parts as if they were complete firearms. This threatens the American tradition of private firearms manufacturing that predates the Revolution.

Missouri law enforcement officials are pushing back against an FBI plan to audit concealed carry permits in the state.

A couple of weeks ago, the FBI told several sheriffs' offices throughout Missouri that federal officials will be showing up in August to conduct an audit, including of concealed carry permits. However, many in the state contend this is against Missouri law.

The FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services Division holds the largest collection of such data that's shared by the nation's law enforcement agencies, according to an FBI spokesperson.

Before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, returning the power to decide abortion law to the states, Texas found a way to restrict abortion by enacting a law that courts would not be able to block because no government entity was involved in enforcing it.

Texas Senate Bill 8 created a right to sue anyone who aided or abetted an abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy, from the staff of a clinic to the ride-share driver who picked up a patient. Private parties who filed lawsuits could collect a “bounty” of $10,000 plus attorney fees.
