A young boy attacked by a pitbull could have been killed if it weren't for the quick reaction of a neighbor who stopped the mauling by shooting it.
A neighbor in Mallina Street on Detroit's northeast side said that a random glance out his window on Wednesday may have saved a young boy's life.
"It's a kid, I don't care whose kid it is, I am going to do what I have to do," the man said.
What he had to do was grab his gun, he said.

No charges will be filed in the April 5 homicide of Darrell King, the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office said.

After an investigation, Prosecutor Karen Richards declared that King’s death was the result of self-defense.

The 45-year-old King died at 2024 Gladstone Drive from asphyxia “due to neck compression and position.”

His death was ruled a homicide, the second in the county this year.

I’ve been to a number of different self-defense courses in the past 20 years, almost all of them focused on drawing and shooting at a stationary paper target at a known distance on a static firing line after the lead instructor has shouted “threat!”

I’m now supremely confident that if I am ever attacked by a stationary paper target, I will survive.

Last week's shooting death of a Livingston County man could put new focus on Michigan's controversial "stand your ground" law.

The attorney for Martin Edward Zale said Tuesday that her client would claim self-defense during his expected murder trial in the death of Derek Flemming.

Zale, 69, of Marion Township, shot Flemming, a 43-year-old Howell resident, Sept. 2 in what has been called a road-rage incident.

A gun control ballot measure expected in the upcoming elections in Washington State could turn law-abiding citizens into criminals by the thousands at places like gun shows and gun ranges.

According to the National Rifle Association (NRA), Ballot Initiative 594 could make the act of simply lending one’s gun to another person without a background check by a licensed dealer, at a firing range, for example, illegal.

Downing says the initiative would make his job more burdensome-- he would have to help with private firearm sales and go through extra federal paperwork to rent a gun at his store.

"Two pieces of paperwork that i have to process that the federal government has to process run through that just to enable someone to rent the firearm to go out and utilize it in the range... It's absurd"

The initiative is now onto public vote come the November ballot.

NJ: Atlantic County Prosecutors Special Treatment – Ray Rice Beating vs Shaneen Allen

With the release of video footage from inside the elevator of Ray Rice viciously knocking out his wife unconscious with a single punch, new questions and controversy are swirling over the acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClains decision to admit Rice to a Pre Trial Intervention program that is not supposed to be available to violent offenders.

While simultaneously zealously pursuing mandatory State Prison time for Philadelphia single mom and legal gun owner Shaneen Allen, who is guilty of naively and ignorantly committing a statutory violation of New Jersey’s draconian gun laws absent any criminal intent, let alone commission of a violent felony assault.

What do we do when the federal government simply ignores the Second Amendment and acts in ways that infringe on our right to keep and bear arms? Well, James Madison laid out a blueprint in Federalist 46 before the Constitution was even ratified.

James Madison wrote in Federalist #46:

Missouri lawmakers expanded the potential for teachers to bring guns in schools and residents to openly carry firearms in cities on Thursday by overriding a veto of legislation by Gov. Jay Nixon.

The vote capped a two-year effort by the Republican-led Legislature to expand gun rights over the objection of the Democratic governor.

The National Rifle Association supports Rep. Shelley Moore Capito in the race to represent West Virginia in the U.S. Senate.

The NRA’s political organization announced its endorsement for Capito, R-W.Va., Wednesday, giving her an “A” rating, the rating reserved for “a solidly pro-gun legislator.”

“Shelley has consistently fought to preserve and improve self-defense laws, gun rights and our hunting heritage for West Virginians and all Americans,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA’s political action committee.

I just read a story posted on AmmoLand.com about Panera Bread and their decision to tell their patrons that they don’t want them carrying firearms for their protection or for the protection of their families while patronizing their restaurants.

I always enjoyed eating at Panera Bread and searched for their restaurants when traveling. Their bread and fresh sandwiches were (and I mean “were”) awesome.

What would it mean for our country if one man’s money could buy other man’s rights?

We will never let a billionaire tell us his life matters and ours do not.

He doesn’t get to make that judgment – the Good Guys do.

Ed.: If only the NRA would put their money where their mouth is here in WA.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has asked Monday for a lawsuit against Kansas firearm laws to be thrown out of court, according to a Tuesday news release.

The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence filed a lawsuit in July against the state of Kansas in hopes to strike down a state law known as the Second Amendment Protection Act, which declared guns made and kept in Kansas exempt from federal gun laws and made federal regulation of Kansas-made guns a felony.
 

Want to know what UN thinks of 'democracy'? Just look at its Arms Trade Treaty

The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), a controversial effort that is highly sensitive in the U.S. due to Second Amendment concerns and worries about its impact on U.S. foreign policy, is nearing the fifty ratifications it needs to come into force, and all critics have been kicked out of the room.

The ATT is ostensibly intended to keep conventional weapons ranging from pistols to battle tanks out of the hands of drug lords, terrorists and human-rights abusing dictators, but is unlikely to be effective. . It was voted into existence in April 2013, and the Obama administration signed on—among 118 nations that did so—promising vociferously that American Second Amendment rights would be respected.

They are the only gun-related measures on the ballot this year, but gun rights advocates who back I-591 and oppose I-594 say the NRA isn’t flexing its muscles very publicly.

“The NRA has really not been involved at all until very recently, and not in the area of spending significantly at all,” said Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. “I have no idea why. We have a coalition made up of all the gun rights groups in Washington, and they are not participating. They’re doing their own thing.”

Prepper & Shooter Magazine has announced that rock legend and pro-Second Amendment prepper Mark Farner, formerly of Grand Funk Railroad, will be featured on the cover of its next magazine, set to hit newsstands in mid-October.

“It’s always great to find a celebrity who is pro-Second Amendment, and Mark Farner is one of the most pro-Second Amendment ones out there,” says Vincent L. DeNiro, Editor-in-Chief. “He’s a strong patriot who stands up for what he believes in, and that includes gun-ownership, preparing for adverse situations and the greatness of this country.”

However, gun rights activists with long memories might suggest that the editorial cheap shot could, and probably should, have been fired instead at Vice President Joe Biden. He’s the guy who advised people early in 2013 to “get a shotgun” in one interview and fire it off the balcony to scare away intruders and in another, suggested that if “you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”
 

WA: Another cash dump into Wash. gun control effort: Is this overkill?

The Seattle Times reported yesterday that Bellevue billionaire Steve Ballmer and wife, Connie have added another $250,000 to the already-bursting-at-the-seams campaign coffers of Initiative 594, prompting a source in the comparatively cash-poor rival Initiative 591 camp to observe, “This is just overkill.”

And so it would seem, as backers of I-591 – who are also lined up against I-594 – have been struggling to raise money for radio and television advertising.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government that is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. — JAMES MADISON
