MO: Gov. Nixon Discusses Gun Legislation at State Fair

While bill supporters say it would keep Missourians safe, Nixon says it would allow people with no training and no background check to carry concealed.

However, bill sponsor State Sen. Brian Munzlinger (R-Williamstown) says those individuals can currently open-carry. He says his bill allows them to carry concealed.

Senator Munzlinger tells Missourinet he plans to seek an override during the September Veto Session. Another supporter, State Rep. Chuck Basye (R-Rocheport), says he also intends to vote to override Nixon's veto.
 

NV: Is it really about guns?

For example, Section 6, Paragraph 5 provides for temporary transfer of a firearm and lists five exceptions, yet “temporary” is not defined. What is temporary? Two minutes, two days, or two years? The way the question is written, who knows? I am not sure I want to leave that decision up to a progressive judge somewhere. One of the provisions for temporary transfer is “while in the presence of the transferor.” I guess if that is true, then a terrorist with legally owned firearms can loan one to another terrorist as long as both go on the shooting rampage together.

This measure is opposed by the sheriffs of 16 of Nevada’s 17 counties. The remaining one, Clark County, is neutral.
 

TX: Texas Campus Carry Law Takes Effect, Students, Faculty on Edge

Students and faculty within the university system are divided. The new law law has generated protests, the retirement of a Texas A&M professor and threats of punishments against educators who try to ban firearms from their classrooms.

But despite what pro-gun supporters term hysteria about a law that already stands in several states, the campus carry law is only going to apply to a small portion of the student population in Texas. It’s likely to keep parents, faculty and students on edge, but experts say the campus carry law could turn out to be a non-event, at least if history provides any guidance.
 

Urban Gun Violence as Seen By a Black Second Amendment Activist

Black Guns Matter is about training. We’ve been going for a year, but because of incidents with law enforcement over the last six months, it’s picked up a lot of steam. We’re getting much more attention. The ratcheting up is both good and bad. It’s bad because it’s due to murders. It’s good because it means more information is getting into the hood.

Our goal is to educate all hoods across America about the Second Amendment rights they have. A lot of times in my community, firearms are available before you have the information to even handle them properly. You can run across a gun at 15. What we want to do is, if anyone runs a across a gun at a young age, we want them to know what to do and not to do.

Actor Tom Arnold is arguing for gun control in the wake of his nephew’s suicide.

The Sin City Saints star penned an emotional editorial, published in The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, detailing his own 52-year history with firearms and the tragic story of his mentally unstable nephew, Spencer.

“Like most people who grew up in rural Iowa, I am a gun owner and a supporter of the Second Amendment. As a hunter, farmer and former meat packer, guns have been a part of my life since I took ‘Rifle Range’ at YMCA camp when I was 5,” the 57-year-old actor and father of two wrote.
 

TN: What can’t be done about gun violence, and why not

Why are Americans so prone to gun violence?

Don’t expect an answer from the federal government. As a quick internet search reveals, public money has been spent to study the gambling habits of monkeys and to audit Wikipedia entries for gender bias. But gun violence is off limits.

Congress sealed the checkbook.

(Yes, writing that sentence is as mind-boggling as reading it.)
 

NH: Nurse caring for boy in wheelchair asked to leave NH thrift store for carrying gun

A conflict between the right to carry a firearm and the right to private property recently occurred at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a thrift store and food pantry on Union Avenue.

Customers allegedly became uneasy when a nurse caring for a 5-year-old disabled boy in a wheelchair entered the store carrying a holstered firearm, according to the Laconia Daily Sun.

President of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Erika Johnson asked the women to leave her firearm in her car as guns are not permitted within the store.

Johnson reached out to the Laconia Police Department, who assured her that she is authorized to deny firearms from the store according to N.H. laws, Capt. Matt Canfield confirmed with the Laconia Daily Sun.

CA: New Case Challenges California’s Near-Complete Ban On Carrying Guns For Self-Defense

The infamously liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (AKA, the “Ninth Circus”) painted themselves into a constitutional corner recently when the full court overturned a three-judge panel and rendered the decision that denying a concealed-carry license does not violate Second Amendment rights.

As open carry is already illegal in California, the decision amounted to a statewide ban on carrying a weapon of any kind if you live in “may issue” counties where the chief law enforcement officer is opposed to issuing concealed carry permits.

A new case has been brought that argues that a ban on both concealed and open carry is blatantly unconstitutional, and that something has to give.
 

Polls: NRA Approval 54%, Hillary Clinton Approval 41%

A recent poll from Rasmussen Reports shows the NRA’s favorable rating is 54% and a Gallup poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s favorable rating is 41%.

This is an interesting contrast when one considers that Clinton purposely confronted the NRA as a way to differentiate between herself and other Democrat primary candidates in the fall of 2015. The New York Times reported on her October 16, 2015 appearance in Keene, N.H., in which Clinton “promised to take on the [NRA] in aggressively pressing for gun control.”
 

Arming the LGBT community, one beginner shooter at a time

“Places that I thought were safe and we could come together, maybe are not as safe as they used to be. That makes me sad in some ways. In other ways I'm adaptable. I'm going to adapt,” Johnson says.

Getting firearm training from the Pink Pistols is one way he’s adapting.

The Pink Pistols is a national gun rights organization founded in 2000. The group advocates for the LGBT community to learn about and carry firearms as self defense.

On the second Saturday of every month, the Pink Pistols chapter in San Jose hosts a “beginner shoot.” Newcomers like Johnson go through safety training and learn how to fire a gun.

About a dozen Second Amendment supporters, some wearing holstered guns on their hips, turned up to the Douglas County Board of Commissioners’ weekly meeting Wednesday.

They were there to protest an incident in which police stopped a man who was open carrying a gun while bringing merchandise to a vendor at the Douglas County Fair last week. The man was bringing supplies to a booth run by the Oregon Firearms Federation. He refused to cover up his weapon and was challenged by several officers, including Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin before a call from one of the county commissioners established that the man could carry his gun openly at the fair.
 

Magazine Mayhem, Part I

It strikes us as odd how often things seem to go in peculiar cycles. And this doesn’t seem unique—lots of pals and family report these déjà vu-ish episodes too. A strange one started with our recent trip to Gunsite Academy (here, here and here) and is continuing in our recent range missions. It also has decided Carry Life implications: If your carry wherewithal is an auto-loader/semi-automatic, it has a magazine. Since correct, continued functioning of the defensive firearm depends on that magazine, are there considerations to keeping mags at their best, and avoiding the mayhem we’re seeing so much?
 

CA: Gun restrictions won’t cut crime, shootings

It’s time to ask some really tough questions about gun control — an issue that generates angst, raw emotion and even anger. It’s time to look at it differently — not through the lens of fear, but rather through one of objectivity and common sense.

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s perversely named “Safety for All” initiative will appear on November’s ballot as Proposition 63, and while he’s working feverishly to exploit tragedy to sway voters to support restrictions on ammunition and gun ownership, we don’t believe for a nanosecond that his rhetoric will sway one evil doer from committing some atrocity. Rather, Proposition 63 will simply further disadvantage those who want to protect themselves, their homes and their loved ones.
 

Unraveling The Lies About Gun Raffles

Trying to stop or sabotage raffles that simply allow vetted, law-abiding Americans to win a gun—which they would have to pass a background check in order to take possession of—can’t be considered any kind of serious attempt at fighting crime. In truth, these are just a few more examples of gun haters trying to make it harder for law-abiding Americans to practice their Second Amendment rights—a tactic that gun-ban advocates seem to be getting better and better at every day.

I genuinely want to be done with defending the Second Amendment from the regular barrage of its historically illiterate and inept detractors—the people who say this amendment protects only the “right” of the “militia” to own weapons.

One friend and fellow gun rights activist said it’s best to just ignore such people, in the same way that you might ignore people who say triangles have four sides or that the Sun orbits the Earth. It is tempting to just stop engaging the dopes who simply refuse to consider basic, objective historical facts.

There are also limits to the types of firearms that can be owned by individuals without special licenses. Semi-automatic handguns and rifles are legal to own, but fully automatic weapons are only legal for police, the military, and persons with special licenses. In addition there are limits to the type of ammunition that can be owned by private individuals. Learn more about federal gun laws as well as laws that vary by state from this infographic!

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy does not shy away from the fact that guns on are on the national ballot this November.

“If Donald Trump wins, it will be a pretty dramatic setback,” says Murphy, who has emerged as the Democratic Party’s most vocal champion of new gun regulation. “Not just because how terrible he’ll be on the issue, but the fact that a presidential candidate who ran asking for a mandate on guns lost.”

So this referendum applies to the simple lending or furnishing of a firearm. It basically means one cannot borrow a gun.

Now there are exceptions to this law though; you can apparently lend or sell your gun to a close family member. Family members are defined in part 1, subsection B of the legislation. I notice though that you can’t loan a gun to your neighbor who wants to shoot the coyote that’s eating his chickens. A boyfriend can’t lend a firearm to his girlfriend to protect herself if there’s been a string of burglaries in her building, unless he’s actually living with her. Also, the lending of a rifle to a close hunting buddy whose own gun has broken is restricted to certain times and places.
