The explosion of racial violence in Charlotte, N.C. has led to a gun buying spree by locals worried about their safety.

At Hyatt Guns, one of the nation's largest, staff arrived Thursday morning after the second night of riots and encountered a line of buyers.

"First off, our prayers are with law enforcement this morning. People are afraid. They see lunacy in the streets being perpetrated by criminals and they are gearing up to protect themselves," Justin Anderson, director of marketing for Hyatt Guns told Secrets.
 

FL: Shoot somebody? This hotline’s for you — for a fee

Blow away some hapless trick-or-treater lurking around the front yard on Halloween night? Don’t worry. Just dial the 24-hour self-defense hotline.

And, oh yeah ... don’t forget to call 911. Beneficiaries of a U.S. Concealed Carry Association’s “self defense shield” insurance policy should consult the USCCA-issued wallet card with strict instructions of how to address the operator: “I was attacked and forced to defend myself. Please send the police and an ambulance.”

When the cops show up, once again, stick to the script. “I want my lawyer present before I answer any questions, and until then, I invoke my right to remain silent.”
 

GA: Home invaders pick the wrong house

Three men kicked in a door, guns in hand, looking for trouble — and found it in a woman who had prepared to defend herself. WSB in Atlanta has the video from the surveillance system from the home invasion a week ago, showing the resident taking the initiative and shooting at her would-be assailants. Police released the video late yesterday because they want to find two of the men. They already have the third … in the morgue, a result of his own very poor choices.

The video makes it very clear that the woman faced a life or death situation.

A new advertisement from the National Rifle Association asserts that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will take away people's right to self-defense via firearm.

The ad, which runs for 30 seconds, features a woman in bed hearing the sound of breaking glass in her house and leaping up to call 911.

“She’ll call 911," a narrator says. "Average response time: 11 minutes. Too late.”
 

MA: Appeals Court Overturns Talbot Murder Conviction

They further stated that evidence at trial indicated Talbot might have shot his firearm twice before he was hit once in the head by a bullet and fell. The Court said if he was rendered incapacitated immediately, it would mean that he likely shot first or at least assumed a firing stance when Iacoviello fired – meaning a jury should have been able to consider whether self-defense was a factor.

“If that evidence was believed, a reasonable juror could conclude that Talbot not only pulled out his gun, but also assumed a firing stance aiming in the direction of the Iacoviello group, and fired before he himself was shot,” read the decision.
 

Trevor Noah: We’ve never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs, you know

What — signs demanding an end to something don’t stop people from doing it anyway? Who’da thunk it? Sean Davis argues that the Daily Show’s Trevor Noah “accidentally destroyed the case for gun control” last night.

If so, you can be very sure that it was accidental. After rightfully poking fun at a local Minnesota businessman for posting a “Muslims Get Out” sign, Noah expands on the silly nature of futile gestures … like posting signs aimed at everyone over an issue that relates to a select few:

My husband and I work at the University of Missouri at Columbia where, last fall, following widespread demonstrations against racism, a student from another campus in the state threatened on the anonymous social network Yik Yak to "shoot any black people" he saw.

The day after the Yik Yak threat, a black undergraduate stopped by my husband’s office to say that she was interrupting her education and going home. Her parents thought she’d be safer there. She had spent the night, she said, hiding in her bathtub.
 

The Problem With Leaving a Gun in Your Car

Cars are a bad place to keep valuables—especially if those valuables are weapons. But every day, U.S. gun owners store their Glocks, their Smith & Wesson 9mm pistols, their .22 rifles, and plenty more firearms in their cars as they go to work or the grocery store. A jimmied door, a broken window, and someone can steal a gun that can later be used to commit more crimes.

Ed.: Eliminate victim disarmament zones and the problem will largely eliminate itself.

A poll of the military shows staggering support for Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson. Johnson came in a hair below Donald Trump with 37 percent of the vote to Trump's 38 percent, and Hillary Clinton was third with a measly 16 percent. Green Party's Jill Stein received only 1.2 percent, which is nearly identical to her national poll percentages. The poll was conducted by Military Times and Syracuse University's Institute for Veterans and Military Families.

To make the test oriented more towards the purpose of self-defense, the legislative regulatory body, Sucamec, in charge of regulating and issuing the license to bear arms, agreed to modifiy the exam.

Ruben Rodriguez Rabanal, national superintendent of Sucamec told the news agency Andina that the new implementation started this month and it consists of reducing the distance of the firing test from 15 meters to 10.

“Before the required distance to pass the test was 15 meters and most disapproved of the test, the reality is that no one fends off an attacker 15 meters away, not even private security agents. We are not trying to train competitive shooters,” he explains.

"Stop and frisk worked," Trump said Thursday morning during an appearance on Fox & Friends, referring to the policy in New York that was scrapped as well as ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge. Police are "proactive, and if they see a person possibly with a gun or they think they have a gun, they will see the person and they'll look and they'll take the gun away. They'll stop, they'll frisk and they'll take the gun away, and they won't have anything to shoot with."
 

When Second Amendment Rights Need Defending

A federal appeals court handed down a major ruling last week packed with progressive ideas about the constitutional rights of those disabled by mental illness. But liberals didn’t cheer the decision or tout it as a landmark affirmation of liberty and minority rights. Why not? Because this case affirmed a right with which progressives have a rather complicated relationship: the right to bear arms. The case is the latest to illustrate a quandary that has arisen in Second Amendment jurisprudence in the years since the Supreme Court handed down District of Columbia v. Heller. Now that gun ownership has been enshrined as a fundamental right, should liberals defend that right for everyone equally—even if they disagree with Heller itself?
 

Handgun ownership rising most quickly among women

We hear repeated stories of how gun ownership is on the rise, but who are the people buying the guns? (We’re talking about legal purchases here obviously. The motives and opportunities for criminals are another issue.) It’s a complicated question because there is no “generic” lawful gun owner in the United States. But Time Magazine is looking at one particular segment of American gun owners this week and it’s women who purchase a single firearm… specifically handguns. And the most common reason given is self-defense.

What Donald Trump knows about Hillary Clinton and her bodyguards

Clinton, who would never want to give up her bodyguards, obviously understands that guns make her safer. Wealthy gun control advocates such as Michael Bloomberg also want guns for their own protection. Bloomberg even provides armed bodyguards for the executives at Everytown for Guns Safety and Mom’s Demand Action, two of his organizations.

Even Justice Stephen Breyer, one of the strongest gun control advocates on the Supreme Court, relies on guns for protection. In 2012, after being robbed in Washington, DC for the second time in three months, he demanded that armed police protection be provided for him at taxpayer expense.

Gun rights are enshrined in the Constitution and, because they are based on the right to self-defense, are grounded in natural law: People have a natural right to defend themselves in all times and all places, regardless of political conditions. Voting rights, on the other hand, are synthetic: They depend for their exercise on membership in a democratic polity. A noncitizen has no right to vote in federal elections, but he still has a right to defend himself from being attacked. Hence gun rights are even more foundational than voting rights.

The spot, “Blindfold,” focuses on votes Kander cast in Jefferson City and demonstrates that he’s a politician who will say anything to get elected.

The 67-year-old rocker has been extremely outspoken in the past about second amendment issues – he currently serves on the Board of Directors for the National Rifle Association – and other conservative hot buttons. During his segment in the eight minute video, he singles specifically touches on hunter's rights.

"Hunting, fishing, trapping – we the people own these precious renewable natural resources," he says. "It's a way of life, which is why conservation is the greatest success story in the world here in America. Hillary Clinton is against all of these things. She is against the freedom that is uniquely American. Donald Trump will safeguard the things that make America the greatest place in the world."

Councilman Caleb Collier has asked that the city be declared a "Second Amendment Sanctuary City." He says his plan comes in response to state Attorney General Bob Ferguson's recent announcement that he's seeking a ban on the sale of semi-automatic rifles.

The sanctuary city proclamation wouldn't give Spokane Valley the authority to stop enforcement of state and federal gun laws.

But Councilman Ed Pace says the move could be used as a lobbying tool and to send a message to state legislators.

Scott's relatives claim he was unarmed as well. But let's assume that police are telling the truth and he had a handgun. What reason was there for officers to confront him?

North Carolina, after all, is an open-carry state. A citizen has the right to walk around armed if he or she chooses to do so. The mere fact that someone has a firearm is no reason for police to take action.

This is crazy, in my humble opinion. I believe that we should try to save some of the 30,000-plus lives lost each year to gun violence by enacting sensible firearms restrictions -- and that the more people who walk around packing heat like Wild West desperados, the more deaths we will inevitably have to mourn.

Lamenting the hostility that has often plagued the gun-control debate on both sides, the "Boot Scootin' Boogie" artist said that the right to bear arms is an American principle that "should be respected."

"We do have a Second Amendment and it's something that should be respected and discussed in a civilized way," Brooks said. "My only concerns are that Second Amendment rights are discussed with so much ferocity that sometimes we don't hear what each other is saying."

Included on the same ballot on which Hoosiers will pick the next president and governor is Public Question 1, which asks if they want to “forever preserve” the right to harvest the state’s wildlife.

On Wednesday evening, Palm Springs City Council passed gun control legislation, which would amend the desert city’s firearms policy. The measure passed on a 3-2 vote. In 30 days the following will become the law:

--Gun owners have 48 hours to report a missing firearm to police or when the owner “reasonably should have known” they were missing.
--If guns or ammo is to be left unattended in a vehicle, it must be kept in a truck [sic] or locked container.
--People will have to store their firearms in a locked container at home. Their other option is to place a trigger lock on their guns.

Anyone found violating the city law could face a $1,000 fine per violation.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation on Thursday that codified a legal victory allowing the use of videos taken during lawmaker debate in the California Assembly.

In May, Second Amendment advocates took the state to federal court arguing an obscure law preventing the use of the videos violated the First Amendment. On June 22, U.S. District Judge Morris C. England found that public interest favored allowing use of the footage and sided with the advocates by blocking the state from preventing its dissemination.
