FL: Bill targets Home Gun Ranges

A state lawmaker has filed a bill he says intends to clear up murkiness in a Florida statute regarding home gun ranges.

Current law states firing a gun outside a residence is legal as long as the person does not “recklessly or negligently discharge a firearm outdoors on any property used primarily as the site of a dwelling.” In other words, a gun can be fired — so long as it is done so safely.

Early Monday morning, Carey Gabay, an aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, was shot in the head, apparently by a stray bullet; he is not expected to survive. As member kelsurprise notes on the Member Feed, both Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio are already calling for additional gun control measures, despite New York already having some of the least gun-friendly laws in the country.

In his inaugural address to the nation as its first president, George Washington declared, “the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.”

Few would dispute that we have witnessed a steady and increasing departure from “the eternal rules of order and right” within our lifetimes.

New anti-gun city ordinances in two West Coast cities have prompted the National Rifle Association and others to file lawsuits in order to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners there.

Both Los Angeles and Seattle have recently passed strongly anti-gun ordinances—L.A., an ammunition magazine ban; Seattle, a gun and ammo sales tax. Now both cities must go to court to defend the poor decisions of their anti-gun officials.

The Daily Caller learned from Washington D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump Tuesday that of the 206 concealed carry applications sent for review to MPD, 44 were approved so far. According to the MPD website, the department began accepting applications for concealed carry permits on October 23, 2014.

The DC also asked Mayor Muriel Bowser at a press conference Tuesday if the cost and bureaucracy of applying for a gun permit in the district hinders DC’s poorest from owning a legal firearm for self-defense.

Anti-gun activist Leah Gunn Barrett, the executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, must have never read Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People.

Breitbart reports that on Al Jazeera TV, Barrett said that women shouldn’t be allowed to carry firearms for protection on college campuses, on the grounds that, “Women are not physically powerful like men are. A gun could easily be turned on the woman, and it is frequently.”

Remember Driver’s Education? If your class was like mine, you learned about the dangers of tailgating. You know, following the car in front of you too closely.

If you do that, and the driver in front slams on their brakes, you might rear-end them. In fact, given the right conditions, there is a 100 percent chance you will rear-end the car in front of you, no matter how much you stomp on your brakes. While you may think you can stop fast enough to avoid a crash, you cannot, no matter how good your reflexes are.

In my article on open carry, I mentioned the confusion we residents of Arkansas have over whether open carry is legal in our state or not. I also said that I was unwilling to be a test case on that question. But others have offered themselves up, particularly one Richard Chambless, a resident of Bald Knob who carried his handgun openly in a holster and got arrested and ultimately found guilty of a Class A misdemeanor for doing so.

 

You Don’t Need a License to Own a Gun In Philadelphia

You’ve probably heard about the National Rifle Association‘s lawsuit against Philadelphia, which challenged several of the city’s gun laws that are more restrictive than Pennsylvania state law. Well, a judge just struck the NRA lawsuit down, ruling that the organization had no standing to bring it in the first place. But even though the NRA had its panties in a bunch, it turns out that availing yourself of the Second Amendment in the city where it was conceived is probably easier than you think.

The simmering legal battle over the District's restrictive concealed carry law has drawn in attorneys general from various states and advocacy groups on both sides of the gun control debate, raising the profile of a case that could reshape the legal landscape over how far cities and states can go in regulating the carrying of guns in public

While the timing closely follows the tragic WDBJ-TV shooting, U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine said the idea behind a new gun bill he rolled out today reflects something he’s been mulling over for months.

“I had a couple of epiphany moments over the summer,” said Kaine, a supporter of universal background checks who last publicly called for action in April on the anniversary of the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre

Mike Huckabee owns several assault rifles, Donald Trump is packing a handgun, and Jeb Bush — well, Jeb Bush goes empty-handed. That's unusual for a GOP candidate; The Telegraph reports that of the 17 Republicans running for president, only Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina join Jeb Bush in the ranks of the unarmed.

 

Anti-Gun Group Seeking to Provoke Confrontations Between Police, Lawful Carriers?

The cracks are showing at the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

Granted, it can’t be easy for them these days. Overall rates of violent crime are down. Americans are embracing the right to keep and bear arms and rejecting calls for gun control at historic rates.

Gun control standard bearer Barack Obama has utterly failed to advance anti-gun legislation through Congress and occasionally sounds resigned to defeat.

 

Why Don't We Have Life-Saving Smart Guns Yet?

For decades inventors have been trying to make guns that can be fired only by their owners, without sacrificing reliability. Stuffy industry types call them personalized weapons, but everyone else just calls them smart guns.

Most smart-gun prototypes so far have depended on biometrics (voice, palm, or fingerprint scans) to verify the owner, but none have made it to production. With the possibility of sweat or blood blocking a sensor, dependability remains a concern.

We all have seen the shootings that have happened in the most random spots that we could imagine. We have seen them happen at grammar schools, movie theaters. Of course there is a period of grieving and the families hurting from this occurrence. What happens after that?

In the wake of mass shootings nationwide and widespread public concern about lethal use of force by police, the city of Hermosa Beach has opened a new $380,000 facility to give officers the latest tools in situation training.

The facility’s combined shooting range and interactive video simulator will allow the agency’s roughly three dozen officers to regularly practice firing their guns and using less-than-deadly weapons, including stun guns, batons and pepper spray.

CO: The Arapaho Roosevelt National Forest's 1.4 million acres cover the Front Range foothills and climb into the mountains of north central Colorado. As more people use the forest and build homes in the private land checkered between its boundaries, conflicts between recreational shooters and other forest users are increasing.

That's why the Forest Service officials are proposing a forest-wide plan to manage where shooting enthusiasts can and cannot fire their guns.

Dan and I spent a fascinating evening recently with the endlessly gregarious Rick Bongiovanni. The Operations Manager at Houston’s minimalist Athena Gun Club (think Apple Store for guns and shooting) is a firearms instructor, former cop and Hollywood make-up artist (no I didn’t make that up). Rick made an excellent point of what you should say to 911 operators after a defensive gun use. He recommends telling the operator “Someone’s been shot. I need an ambulance and the police at XXXX. I’m a concealed handgun owner. I was in fear for my life.” The important point here...

An article in The Florida Courier, which describes itself as “Sharing Black Life, Statewide”, illustrates that black Americans’ attitudes toward guns and the Second Amendment are changing. For the better. Nowhere in the article did I detect a sentiment in favor of more legal restrictions, not even the usual to-be-sure quote from someone in the civilian disarmament community, giving the piece “balance”...

Mariano Meza-Rodriguez was 4 years old when his parents brought him from Mexico to the United States. He grew up in Milwaukee and attended Milwaukee Public Schools, but never became a citizen or obtained papers allowing him to remain in the U.S. legally. In other words, he was an undocumented immigrant.

Meza-Rodriguez, having reached adulthood, was arrested in 2012 after a bar fight in Milwaukee. Police found a .22-caliber bullet in his shorts pocket.

Numerous studies conducted by academic researchers and by the federal government have shown that criminals do not use legal markets to obtain guns.

And now we have more evidence of this reality, this time looking at criminals in Chicago. Philip J. Cook, Susan T. Parker, and Harold A. Pollack conducted interviews with criminals being held in the Cook County Jail.
