The state Senate narrowly approved a bill Thursday that would require just about anyone buying a firearm to undergo a background check. This legislation has been a priority for gun control advocates, but all 16 Republicans and four Democrats in the Senate said it would not prevent the sort of mass shootings that have spurred calls for such laws. Scheduled for the first anniversary of a school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 people dead, the Senate's vote was the biggest test yet for gun control during this legislative session.

Five days after taking possession of the weapon Martin tried to obtain a concealed carry permit.
But during the fingerprinting and background process it was discovered that he had a felony conviction for assault in Mississippi. The date of conviction was in 1995.
Because of the conviction, Martin's concealed carry permit was rejected and his license to own a weapon was revoked by Illinois State Police.
As part of the investigation into the shooting, investigators would try to determine why Martin never surrendered his weapon to police as he should have.

Submitters note: They want to take guns from law abiding citizens, but don't take guns away from known felons. We don't need more laws when they won't enforce existing laws.

HOUSTON – A lead investigator lied in an affidavit justifying a drug raid on a Houston home in which two residents were killed and four undercover officers were shot and wounded during a gun battle.

In the search warrant that was used to justify entering the home, officers with the Houston Police Department's narcotics unit had alleged that a confidential informant had bought heroin at the house the day before the Jan. 28 raid. The informant had also allegedly seen a handgun in the home.

But according to an affidavit filed as part of the ongoing investigation into the raid and made public Friday, the informant told investigators he had not bought any drugs at the home and had not been involved in any work leading up to the raid.

Wildcat cartridges, sometimes referred to as simply “wildcats,” are custom-designed cartridges – meaning they are not mass produced, but instead made by individual shooters. The purpose of a wildcat is the cultivation of some attribute not sufficiently present in a commercially available round. Wildcats aren’t great for law enforcement or military purposes, but they are great for hardcore shooting aficionados, handloaders looking to take things to the next level, and gunsmiths who want to homebrew ammunition for their homebrew weapons.

Amendment Would Ensure Iowans Keep Right to Bear Arms

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
I, and many other legislators have been trying to enact an amendment to the Iowa constitution to guarantee the rights of Iowans to keep and bear arms, as is guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution, for a number of years. In our current proposal, we are leaving off the language in the preamble of the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment, having to do with a militia. The reason is that opponents of a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms have used that preamble, so far unsuccessfully, to argue that the Constitutional right only applies to the military and law enforcement, and not to the average citizen.

Anti-gun Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi picked a favorite target of her party – the rights of gun owners – in her spat du jour with President Donald Trump over his declaration of a national emergency to secure additional border wall funding by suggesting that a future Democratic president could declare an emergency to deal with so-called “gun violence,” which translates to executive gun control action.

Democrats have become “the party of gun control,” and they are not happy that Trump has been filling federal court vacancies with judges who may have more fidelity the Second Amendment and has placed two “originalist” justices on the Supreme Court.

After their elections, county sheriffs take an oath to uphold the laws of the country, state and county — even when they disagree. At least 13 county sheriffs have said they won’t enforce the state’s new gun law, Initiative 1639. They must reconsider, enforce the law as it is and find another, legal way to protest. Not to do so is to flout their oath and responsibility to citizens.

The ordinances proposed amend past wording in Pittsburgh gun legislation and replace certain sections “to update existing laws to meet the public safety needs of residents,” as well as adding a new section “to place a prohibition on certain firearm accessories, ammunition, and modifications,” according to the Pittsburgh City Council’s public records.

Doug Duren lives on a 430-acre farm in Wisconsin that’s been in his family for 115 years, and he keeps more than 200 acres of it wild for deer hunting. It’s a vast plot of land to hunt on — boasting around 75 white-tail deer per square mile — and Duren, 60, keeps in mind a conservationist mantra when he manages it: “It’s not ours, it’s just our turn.”

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mills
