A Senate hearing featuring testimony from Sybrina Fulton – the mother of Trayvon Martin – that had been scheduled for Tuesday was postponed following the fatal Navy Yard shootings.

Sen. Dick Durbin’s (D-Ill.) office made the announcement Monday evening. The hearing from the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights would have focused on so-called “Stand Your Ground” statutes – which prompted a national debate about self-defense laws following Martin’s death in early 2012.

There’s no accounting for commons sense with open carry gun laws. We have blind people in Iowa being issued permits to carry a firearm in public and now this story out of Appleton, Wisc., where two men with open carry permits are considering a lawsuit after being detained by police earlier this month for walking down College Avenue near that town’s popular farmers market with AR-15 assault rifles strapped to their backs.
 

Lethal-Force Laws Seen Fueling Revamp of Concealed-Carry Permits

The shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, which sparked debate over Stand Your Ground gun laws, is bringing fresh scrutiny to statutes regarding an individual’s right to carry a concealed weapon.

Weak concealed-gun-carry laws in 25 U.S. states add to the dangers from laws that let a person use lethal force in self defense if he or she feels threatened by another individual, according to a report today by the Center for American Progress in Washington, a research group aligned with Democrats.
 

CA: Calif. firearms bills would enact strict rules

Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California, said the assault weapon ban alone would put California in the forefront on restrictions.

“No question about it. The bill will make half of the rifles in existence ‘assault weapons,’ and make them illegal,” he said.

The definition in the assault weapons bill applies to most semi-automatic hunting rifles.

It also applies to military-style rifles that have been used in mass slayings. It exempts .22-caliber rim fire rifles.

Those who currently possess the types of guns covered by the bill would have to register the weapons and could not transfer them to others.

For example, the Second Amendment obligates government to protect “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms.” A vast majority of Americans is consistently adamant that that right shall not be infringed upon.
 

Wait Until You See How a High School Textbook Summarizes the Rights Guaranteed in the Second Amendment

Controversy is brewing around a school district in Denton, Texas, that is said to be using a United States history book that seems to summarize the Second Amendment inaccurately. However, the Denton Independent School District maintains it only uses the book as “supplemental” material and is “disseminating the correct information on the Second Amendment” from other texts.

But there are several other schools that appear to be using the book, too.
 

IL: Judge reverses herself, charges dropped in gun case after ruling

A Cook County judge reversed herself Monday and dismissed weapons charges against a Chicago man after a recent Illinois Supreme Court ruling that called part of the state's gun law unconstitutional.

Cook County Circuit Judge Ellen Mandeltort last week denied Deafalla Haddad's request to drop the charges.

But the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that part of the state's gun law was unconstitutional and advised prosecutors to drop charges in certain cases. That ruling fell in step with a federal court decision earlier this year declaring that the state's gun laws violated the U.S. Constitution.

A deadly shooting in the heart of the nation's capital has reignited talk about guns, but it's uncertain whether the tragedy will revive a legislative debate that has gone cold in the face of opposition from Second Amendment supporters.

The case for increased gun control has become increasingly difficult, evidenced by the National Rifle Association-backed recall of two Colorado legislators who supported stricter laws and President Barack Obama's powerlessness to pass his legislation.

In 2008, when Barack Obama was running for his first term as president, we learned that differing with him on any issue, anytime, anywhere, was evidence of racism.

It still is, but Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz upped the ante in a tirade last week when Colorado voters ousted two prominent Democrats in a recall election for their role in enacting a strict state gun control law.

Ex-convicts who avoid future convictions should be allowed to vote and carry firearms, U.S. Senator Rand Paul suggested on Monday at a forum in Louisville.

"I am in favor of letting people get their rights back, the right to vote, the right to.. Second Amendment rights, all your rights to come back," Paul said of non-violent drug offenders following a conversation at the Plymouth Community Renewal Center.

Yes, that’s correct. In 1993, President Bill Clinton decreed that US military personnel were to surrender the Second Amendment rights that they swear an oath to support and defend.

Ed.: Um, no. Military posts were essentially gun-free for decades before Clinton, as my fellow vets note in the comments.
 

Firearms and Feminism

Female gun ownership has surged over the past five years, and it’s easy to understand why. Women who own guns consistently list the self-confidence and the sense of protection that having a firearm gives them, and the way it makes them feel in general: that rush of adrenaline, that inner strength, and perhaps even a little glamor. But nobody becomes a gun person overnight. There are many building blocks that go into making someone a gun enthusiast. For me, it was a combination of empowerment and education on the fronts of both feminism and firearms that eventually led to my passion for the Second Amendment.

Texans 50 or 60 and older are leading the way in applications for a concealed handgun permit, state data show.

More 57-year-old Texans applied for the concealed carry permit than any other single age. In past years, Texans ages 63, 62, 51 and 60 have headed up the requests, the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram said after an exhaustive search of state records.

So it takes nine months and two days from Newtown, from 20 dead children and six adults, for someone else to carry the same kind of AR-15 that Adam Lanza carried into Sandy Hook Elementary School into the Washington Navy Yard.

They call semiautomatics like this sport rifles. You bet. Mostly for the sport of killing innocent people, and killing them fast.

As Twitchy reported, there has been a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard. Multiple injuries and fatalities are being reported. There are also unconfirmed reports that indicate there is more than one shooter.

But, hey, let’s politicize! The Fonz answered the despicable call by jumping the ghoulish shark:

FL: Anti-gun group study: In states with 'stand your ground' laws, justifiable homicide rates soar

A new study by a coalition of gun-control groups, including Mayors Against Illegal Guns, found that in states that have implemented "stand your ground" laws, the number of justifiable homicides has skyrocketed.

The rate is up 53 percent in 22 states, according to the study. In Florida, the average annual rate is up 200 percent. In states that do not have those laws, the rate has declined marginally.

The study, co-sponsored by the National Urban League and VoteVets.org, also concludes that the number of deaths of black people deemed to be justifiable in states with those laws has doubled.

“Stand your ground” laws have allowed armed citizens to take the law into their own hands without the training and accountability of public law enforcement officers, with disproportionately harmful results for people of color. The Leadership Conference welcomes a conversation about these state laws and the steps the federal government could take to address or mitigate their impact on racial minorities.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
