“[I]nternational pressure may be one way of reducing the slaughter over the next generation,” he concludes. “This has reached the point where it has ceased to be a domestic issue. The world cannot stand idly by.”

It’s something to think about as I notice Eddie’s hideout has as much weaponry as a drug house: pistols, bow and arrows, ammunition, knives, swords, a WWI trench knife, and a sawed-off shotgun are strategically strewn about the place.

Taking a photo of his shotgun, Eddie becomes concerned. “Do not show my face or my name,” he says again, looking at my stepsister. “This,” he says, picking up the sawed-off, “is a 20-year charge.”

Obama used the funeral of the Navy Yard shootings to push his gun control agenda.
 

Obama urges nation to demand a ‘common sense’ balance on gun control, gun rights

Obama exploited the Navy Yard shootings memorial service to ask for gun control. He forgot to mention three things. First, gun violence is decreasing. Gun murders, as well as gun assaults and robberies combined, have declined 50% from 1993 to 2011 according to FBI Uniform Crime Reports. From 2007 to 2011, those 3 categories declined by 15%. Second, in the Spring 2002 Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, Don Kates and Gary Mauser, showed that the murder rate of the Soviet Union was four times higher than that of the US despite the near total ban on firearms. Many European nations with higher rates of firearms ownership had lower murder rates than those where guns were scarce. Third, strict DC gun laws did not prevent these shootings.

A small group of protesters upset by the acquittal of George Zimmerman say they're returning to the state Capitol.

The group plans to return Monday, repeating their request for Gov. Rick Scott to call a special session and ask legislators to overhaul the state's self-defense laws. The group refused to leave the Capitol for more than a month this summer after Zimmerman was acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin.

Florida lawmakers return to Tallahassee this week for their first in a series of weekly meetings leading up to the 2014 legislative session next spring.

It will be an election-year session with Gov. Rick Scott, three state Cabinet members and many lawmakers keeping an eye on their electoral fortunes as they wade through the 60-day session that begins on March 4.

According to the state of Utah, I earned the right to carry a concealed handgun on a Saturday morning in a suburban shopping center outside Baltimore. Toward the back, next to a pawnshop and White Trash Matt's tattoo parlor, is the global headquarters of Dukes Defense World, a mom-and-pop firearms instruction shop certified by the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification to teach nonresidents firearm safety as a prerequisite for obtaining a concealed-carry permit.
 

PA: Lancaster's Mayor Gray pushes for 'reasonable' gun regulations

Some of Mayor Rick Gray's best friends are gun collectors, hunters and National Rifle Association members.

But, he told about 80 people Sunday attending a forum on gun regulations, the public has a right to self-protection against the small percentage of those who shouldn't have guns.

It's why he says he will continue to push for "reasonable" gun regulations as one of 200 mayors nationwide who have formed Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

At a memorial service Sunday evening, President Obama will join the loved ones of the 12 people killed in a rampage at the Washington Navy Yard in last week.

“I'll be meeting in mourning with families in this city who now know the same unspeakable grief of families in Newtown and Aurora and Tucson and Chicago and New Orleans and all across the country, people whose loved ones were torn from them without headlines sometimes or public outcry," Mr. Obama said in a keynote speech to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Saturday night.

How does change happen?

More to the point, in the wake of12 gun murders in the Navy Yard and a 3-year-old shot in Chicago: Why doesn’t change happen when the need seems so obvious?

It seems obvious that military-style weapons with no hunting or self-defense purpose should not be circulating. It seems obvious that people who hear voices and repeatedly fire guns in anger should be treated before they can buy more guns.

However, as I noted, the Second Amendment has been recently interpreted to grant individuals greater self-defense rights, but not to form personal militias. Both the states and individuals have more firepower than ever to ward of any conceivable notion of tyranny. I think a quarter of a millennia experience with our system is rather strong evidence, not arrogance, that the fear of tyranny by armed force takes a wild imagination.

About 30 years ago as a young reporter in Florida, I was assigned a series on gun control in response to gun violence, which had peaked in the U.S. in 1980.

I began the series with profiles of three gun users, including a woman who had killed her would-be rapist, the owner of a sport shooting club and a convicted murderer on death row at the Florida State Prison in Starke.
 

Stand Up to Republican Bullies

Nowadays, many schools have zero tolerance for fighting, and would send home both the bully and the bullied after a fisticuffs. That probably makes sense in this age of “Stand Your Ground” laws that allow a bully to pick a fight and then, if the victim throws a punch, the bully can pull a gun and shoot his opponent in “self defense.” But good people still need to call out bullies. Blessed are the peacemakers, as Jesus said, but it doesn’t hurt to know how to defend yourself, in case peace is not at hand.

When can you shoot someone in self-defense?
During a recent forum on the state’s Castle Doctrine, some who were gathered at New Beginnings Full Gospel Ministry Church seemed confused about using a gun for self defense and when and where it is legal to carry a gun.
Police Chief Marty Sumner said when he appears in public, he usually gets questions about self-defense shootings.
 

Obama to Americans: You Need to Care More

President Obama Sunday suggested Americans may not care enough about gun violence, indicating that insufficient outrage about killings with firearms is behind the failure to pass his gun control agenda.

Second Amendment advocates believe they care as much about Obama about the killing of innocents but that other measures, including arming for self defense – particularly in “gun-free” zones – keeping guns away from dangerous people, treatment of mentally ill individuals such as the Navy Yard shooter, and other changes are in order instead of new government restrictions on a Constitutional right.
 

Amending the second amendment: a time, place for guns

I recently read an article in USA Today about Starbucks’ “non-ban gun-ban” proclamation by CEO Howard Schultz.

The CEO mentioned banning guns in the store would mean Starbucks employees would have to confront armed citizens, a step Schultz said he isn’t ready for.

With the recent violence, including the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and the Aurora, Colo., shooting, many scared Americans are pushing for stricter policies when it comes to gun control, leading some, including Schultz, to be scared of both legally and illegally armed customers.
