Salon: America Is Not Like Switzerland When It Comes to Guns. But It Should Be!

The Supreme Court’s Heller decision should have ended the debate over the Second Amendment’s militia clause (“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State”). Heller clearly and unequivocally ruled that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right. A decision that failed to surprise anyone who noticed that all the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights are individual rights. And anyone with glancing familiarity with the Federalist Papers.

State Rep. Dennis Baxley — father of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law — filed a bill Tuesday that would tweak the state’s self-defense statutes.

Baxley’s newly filed HB 169 is designed to enhance the legal standing of defendants who claim they acted in self-defense while using or threatening to use deadly force in a dispute.

In response to a letter writer's recent claim that automobiles kill more people than guns, it is easy to make such a claim when you choose to ignore the facts.

In 2013, the most recent year for which complete figures are available, there were 32,719 motor vehicle fatalities in the U.S.

In the same year there were 33,169 gun related deaths.

The number of people bringing guns to security checkpoints is on the rise.

Last year, the TSA caught 2,200 firearms at security checkpoints around the country. In the first six months of this year alone, that number was already up to 1,600.

At Columbia Metro, TSA has stopped eight guns from making it through security so far this year, which is nearly triple the number last year.

A couple months ago TrackingPoint was circling the drain. Despite their cool tech and great PR videos the guns just weren’t selling, and even their down-market versions were sitting on the shelves. It looked like TrackingPoint had reached market saturation with the civilian population and the military and law enforcement agencies hadn’t fully bought in.

Anyone who has spent much time wandering the online shooting forums or reading gun magazines has picked up on some of the less formal firearm categories folks like to talk about, such as BUGs (back-up guns), Kit Guns (small .22 handguns) and Perfect Packin' Pistols (for hiking). A Trunk Gun is a sturdy, reliable, and not-too-expensive firearm that can be kept tucked away in a car or boat for plinking, hunting and, in a pinch, self-defense.
 

Do You Support Campus Carry or Do You Support Rape?

Florida’s proposed “campus carry” legislation by Rep. Greg Steube and Sen. Greg Evers is not only about restoring a constitutional right, it is fundamental to the safety of college students, especially women.

As a Hispanic, female, college student, I know the dangers of being a woman on a university campus.

My father escaped Cuba to come to this country so his children could have freedom, not for his daughters to become victims because our constitutional freedoms were stripped from us while getting an education.
 

Does the Second Amendment Apply to Non-Citizens?

On August 20, 2015, the Seventh Circuit dealt with the question as to whether or not undocumented noncitizens residing within our country have the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment. In United States v. Meza-Rodriguez, the Court grappled with this question and answered in the affirmative noting that illegal aliens are among “the people” of our “national community” protected by the Constitution. However, the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms is subject to limits set in place by acts of Congress. Congress passed 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(5) to curb gun violence and forbids any person illegally or unlawfully in the United States to possess a firearm.

PA: As Sen. Pat Toomey officially launched his reelection campaign over the weekend, a gun rights group was planning to interrupt the festivities by protesting the Pennsylvania Republican’s support for universal background checks.

At the last minute, though, Pennsylvanians for Self Protection canceled the protest. A group official said it was scrapped after a Toomey staffer promised the senator would not reintroduce the high-profile gun control bill known as the Toomey-Manchin proposal that stalled in the Senate two years ago.

Eric Lewis, chairman of Reprieve US, highlighted how conservative media's fear mongering about crime undermines efforts to reform the criminal justice system and inspires GOP candidates to adopt scare tactics about the Black Lives Matter movement and immigration into their campaign strategies.

A recent study published in the journal Injury Prevention, is ridiculous on several levels. Right off the bat, the authors state that “Firearms violence in the USA continues to be a major public health concern.” As we’ve noted here before, violence and the criminal misuse of firearms is a criminal justice problem, not a public health epidemic.

Gun-Control Advocates Hope Recent Wins Signal Changing Tide

It's long been conventional wisdom that fighting for gun control is a good way to end a politician's career.

But advocates of tighter gun laws are pointing to a pair of victories in the Pacific Northwest as evidence that the tide is shifting.

Last year in Washington, voters overwhelmingly supported mandatory background checks on private gun sales. Lawmakers in Oregon approved similar legislation this year, and last week it became clear there wouldn't be political consequences. Gun-rights supporters were unable to gather enough signatures to force recall elections for the bill's supporters.

A Republican lawmaker wants stiffer penalties for Floridians who swap out their Electronic Benefits Transfer “food stamp” cards for non-food items like drugs and guns.

The measure, pre-filed for the 2016 session, aims to help cut down on the underground traffic in buying, selling and trading state-issued EBT cards designed for families in need by making certain swaps for non-food items a felony.

Houston Zoo in Texas came under fire recently for signs near its entrance that say the zoo bans guns, leading to the zoo being forced to take the signs down altogether, reports CBS affiliate KHOU.

Even though the zoo is privately owned, a local gun rights attorney pointed out the zoo sits on city-owned land, the station reports, which means it cannot ban guns on its property.
 

5 Guns from World War One That Are Still Used Today

Historians and gun collectors often point to World War Two for its wide variety of iconic and vastly influential firearms, but it should be noted that the technology of warfare truly changed decades earlier, during the trench warfare of World War One—or the Great War, as it was known at the time. The First World War saw the introduction of wireless communication, tanks, aircraft, submachine guns, and more reliable firearms that left behind nineteenth-century tactics. Guns were now more accurate, able to fire off more shots, and faster to reload.

AR: Faulkner County officials considered an update Tuesday night to their conceal carry policy. It comes after a change during the legislative session earlier this year.

"There's a laundry list of places that you cannot carry even with a concealed permit," said David Hogue, Faulkner County Civil Attorney.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I've realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it's much, much bigger than that. I've come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated. — Charlton Heston
