No criminal charges will be filed against a 91-year-old concealed pistol license holder who shot a suspected robber outside of a pharmacy in Eastpointe, according to police and prosecutors.

Instead, the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office authorized an arrest warrant charging the man who was shot, Richard Ashford, with assault with a dangerous weapon, Prosecutor Eric Smith said in a news release.

“This is a textbook case for why concealed pistol licenses are issued in the first place,” Smith said in the release. “American citizens have the right to protect themselves in the face of clear assault.”

Weather is being blamed for a drop in attendance at this year's Iowa State Fair. (So we can discount the ban on firearms for fair attendees as a crucial factor in decreasing attendance?)Some days were rainy, some extra hot and humid and some apparently were just right for going to the fair, which ended Sunday.

South Dakota has joined a gun control legal battle in Washington D.C. The District of Columbia banns the carrying of firearms unless a citizen can provide "good reason" for doing so. State Attorney General Marty Jackley says that violates the Second Amendment. South Dakota is among 16 states that have joined an amicus brief, supporting a district court decision that found the gun restrictions unconstitutional. The case is 'Matthew Grace v. District of Columbia'.

Inspired by real news stories, former journalist Joseph Huff-Hannon takes on American gun culture with a satirical musical titled Machine Gun America. A play with guns. And songs. (Tagline: "Star-crossed lovers tangle with well-armed toddlers, a powerful gun rights leader and depressed gun safety mascot.")

Democratic nominee for governor Attorney General Chris Koster has made the National Rifle Association (NRA) endorsement an open question in Missouri. While Koster has made a play for the endorsement, Republican nominee Eric Greitens has not ceded his party’s traditional ground. “The 2nd Amendment is clear,” he says on his website. “I believe we must always defend the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. I am a life member of the NRA and a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment.”

Firearm traffickers in Illinois will be punished with sentences of up to 30 years in prison under legislation Gov. Bruce Rauner signed Tuesday, a move aimed at curbing Chicago's rampant gun violence. The new law seeks to address a problem that has vexed prosecutors in recent years: Criminals skirting Illinois' strict gun policies by purchasing firearms in other states where little screening is required. Investigators say more than half of the firearms recovered in Illinois crime scenes are traced back to other states.

Polls show that an overwhelming majority of African Americans see gun violence as a raging crisis—more urgent than mass incarceration or abusive policing—and tougher gun laws as the solution. But the policy reforms that might reduce shootings have been excruciatingly slow to arrive, which is perhaps why more than half of blacks, according to the same surveys, believe that owning personal firearms will make them safer.

When Charter Arms decided to build the new Boomer revolver, the company took its classic Bulldog revolver and completely stripped it down to the bare essentials. Nothing extra, just a few modifications to make the revolver even more concealed-carry friendly. The new Boomer is small and compact and, like the Bulldog series, is chambered in a serious defense cartridge. It is a fistful of power.
 

Federal American Eagle Syntech Handgun Ammunition Review

Handgun ammunition manufacturers put tremendous effort into creating fail-safe defensive loads; this is necessary because each individual round could be called upon to stop a deadly threat. From their efforts have emerged self-defense loads with superb round-to-round consistency and terminal performance. However, practice-type ammunition hasn’t received equitable attention (and thus upgrades) from many manufacturers. Federal Premium bucks the trend, though; in fact, the company has spent four years developing American Eagle Syntech, the new handgun “range” round evaluated here.

425 people murdered and another 23,000 have been hurt by gun violence in Chicago, Illinois with no signs of stopping. A new law signed into law on Tuesday in Illinois works to reduce violence and keep guns off the street. "This law targets straw purchasers- those who skirt Illinois firearm laws by buying guns in other states with the intent to resell in the illegal black markets of Illinois," says House Republican Leader Jim Durkin.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them. — Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States; With a Preliminary Review of the Constitutional History of the Colonies and States before the Adoption of the Constitution [Boston, 1833].
