"With inevitable increases in violent crime will come increased demands to 'do something' about it. With the help of complicit media, that translates into increased enforcement powers for the very state that has engineered the instability and mayhem. Along with those powers will come fewer freedoms, and of course, more 'gun control.'”

The city of Charleston wants a circuit judge to dismiss a gun rights group’s lawsuit targeting a city gun ordinance.
Attorneys appeared Wednesday before Kanawha Circuit Judge James Stucky. A ruling is expected at a later date.
The West Virginia Citizens Defense League is asking Stucky to prevent the enforcement of an ordinance prohibiting handguns in certain public facilities. The ordinance remains on the books, despite a new state law that invalidates it.
The group’s complaint has seen several changes after the new state law passed, making parts of the original complaint moot.
The ordinance prohibits guns from recreational facilities, the Municipal Auditorium, Civic Center and all parks and recreation buildings.

But the employees claim it was a matter of self-defense.

“They’re in an office, writing little lawyer things,” said Gabriel Stewart, one of the fired employees. “They don’t know what it really feels like to be scared and to feel like your life is in jeopardy.”

Stewart was the manager of that Wal-Mart. He said he and his co-workers were in a room with the suspect who pulled a gun, unable to just “walk away.”

Canada: The best self-defence isn’t always a good offence

In Canada it's illegal to carry a weapon for the purpose of self-defense. And according to the Criminal Code, a weapon can be anything designed, used or intended to cause death or injury or even just to threaten or intimidate another person. Since that's pretty much anything, the legality of what's allowed in your pockets hinges on intent. If you're carrying a blade to open a can of apple juice at a picnic, then you're fine. If you're carrying a blade to open a can of whoop-ass on a potential assailant, then you're in trouble. Same deal for pepper spray, which you can carry to protect yourself from rabid canines but not from overzealous exes. Likewise for tasers, stun guns, batons and probably ballpoint pens.

In their reporting on the recent shooting death of firearms instructor Charles Vacca at the Last Stop gun range by a nine-year-old girl firing a fully-automatic Uzi, the major media have been quick to emphasize the danger of kids using firearms. But absent from media reporting is the fact that kids across America for years have used firearms safely and responsibly, sometimes even in defense of their own lives.

In their defense of the Second Amendment, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has managed to strip physicians of their First Amendment rights.

That’s the argument made by the ACLU, the American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and a host of other medical societies in a brief filed last week with the U.S. Court of Appeals. In the case of Wollschlaeger vs. Governor of Florida, physician Bernd Wollschlaeger challenged the Florida Firearm Owners Privacy Act (FOPA), which prohibits Florida doctors from asking patients if they own or possess firearms.

Suppose someone wishes to destroy the Second Amendment. How does someone do that?

Antigun groups and their allies in Congress, in local and State Governments around the Country and Globalist antigun cabals around the world have devised myriad ways to do this. Yet, when giving thought to the means the antigun establishment employs to undermine the Second Amendment, you may fail to realize how vast in scope this is.

A group representing 69 California mayors, including Los Angeles’ Eric Garcetti, sent a letter Wednesday to Gov. Jerry Brown, urging him to sign legislation that would make it easier to temporarily remove guns from individuals believed to be dangerous.

The Legislature last week approved AB 1014, which would allow law enforcement officials and the individuals' family members to seek a restraining order from the court prohibiting individuals seen as a danger to themselves or others from possessing firearms for 21 days.

Just into the second week of fall classes, a Idaho State University professor has literally shot himself in the foot and provided one answer to the question of “What could go wrong?” on the growing number of college campuses that allow the concealed carry of firearms.

The unnamed professor was teaching a class of roughly 20 students at the Physical Science building yesterday when his handgun—pocketed, but not holstered—accidentally discharged, Lieutenant Paul Manning of the Pocatello Police Department told The Daily Beast.

Employees of Utah companies should not have to choose between self-defense and their job, an attorney for six fired Wal-Mart employees told the Utah Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Lorraine Brown, an attorney for the six who were fired after confrontations with shoplifting customers or another employee’s angry spouse, told the court that Utah workers sometimes had to confront a "terrible choice" of trying to ensure their own safety or keeping their jobs.

Since billionaire Bill Gates has not accepted a one-on-one debate challenge from Alan Gottlieb to reveal the myriad problems with Initiative 594, Gottlieb announced today that he will allow Gates to bring former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and make it a two-on-one discussion.

Both Gates and Bloomberg have each contributed over $1 million to the I-594 campaign. Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and spokesman for competing Initiative 591 , challenged Gates to debate the gun control measure last week, but received no response.

The owner of a New York gun shop says he was given 24 hours to comply with a “request” from the New York State Police to turn over records of all customers who have purchased “bullet button” AR-15 rifles since the passage of the hastily-passed SAFE Act in 2013.

Joseph F. Palumbo, owner of the Albion Gun Shop in Albion, New York, told TheBlaze on Wednesday he had no choice but to turn over roughly 165 customer records last week. Now, both he and his customers are concerned that “door-to-door confiscation” or “warrantless searches” could come next.

The people cops are dealing with as they battle the scourge of random gun violence that continues to plague Chester and other areas are enabled by straw gun purchases. For the most part, the persons wielding these weapons with little or no respect for human life are not obtaining their weapons legally.

This is not a Second Amendment question. It’s a matter of street thugs — and their enablers, those who buy weapons and then put them in the hands of criminals. The results, as was the case with Officer Fox, are often deadly.

Our state’s super wealthy social changers are at it again.

Two years after their money helped make charter schools possible, the Ballmers, the Gateses and the Nick Hanauer are using some of their loose millions to try to tighten gun laws in Washington.

They’ve made six- and seven-digit contributions to the campaign for Initiative 594, the measure on the November ballot which would expand the state’s background check law to cover most gun sales conducted at gun shows and online.
