PA governor promises to veto gun preemption bill moving through Senate

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf said Tuesday he will veto a preemption bill aimed at firearm regulations should it get to his desk.

The Senate Local Government Committee advanced Senate Bill 5, a rebooted proposal invalidated by the Supreme Court last year, on a vote of 8-3, sending the measure to the full chamber for consideration.

During the committee’s meeting Tuesday, Minority Committee Chairman Sen. John Blake, D-Lackawana, delivered the veto news on behalf of the administration as he urged a no-vote on the legislation.

“Quite simply because I think this bill is doing something unprecedented in allowing a membership organization to sue a local government and allow injunctive relief,” he said. “When I consider the things our local governments are facing, I don’t know why we are considering this.”

The bill would prevent the state’s 2,500-plus municipalities from enacting gun ordinances stricter than state law. A similar measure was introduced in the House earlier this month.

Five Seconds or Five Hours, in a Gun Free Zone Your Still Dead

History is never erased, nor forgotten. ‘Regret’ is merely wishing things were different, absent a willingness to act in order to cause a change. By contrast, ‘repentance’ is a sincere admission that you’re going the wrong way, combined with a personal resolve to change direction.

‘Regret’ is a useless emotion that requires no effort and is thus as common as it is profitless. ‘Repentance,’ however, calls for action and is thus rare, and ever dangerous and painful! Even repentance cannot alter history, but it will change the future. ‘Regret’ changes nothing, and, like all emotions, accomplishes nothing.” ~ Anon

Stand Your Ground Laws Complicate Matters For Black Gun Owners

Harvard historian Caroline Light grew up with guns. Her family lived in Southwestern Virginia, and her parents regularly enjoyed hunting and shooting skeet (clay targets). They used guns on a recreational basis, not for what Light calls “do-it-yourself self-defense.”

Yet that’s precisely what millions of Americans are doing — arming themselves with guns on the off chance that they will need them. Several versions of “stand your ground laws,” which allow individuals to use lethal force if they fear for their lives, have grown exponentially in the past few decades. The law’s premise stems from a “kill-or-be-killed” philosophy, Light says, that has become “an ideology, and ideal, that’s been rapidly spreading throughout the United States for a while.”

Understanding ‘Constitutional Carry,’ the Gun-Rights Movement Sweeping the Country

Ten states have already eliminated the requirement that gun owners obtain a permit before carrying a firearm in public.

It’s never been so easy in the modern era to carry a gun without a permit in so many states. Over the past seven years, 10 states have rolled back longstanding licensing, training, and registration requirements for carriers of concealed weapons under a novel legislative philosophy called “constitutional carry.”

Concealed carry permit no longer required in MO

The new year means new rules for gun-owners in Missouri.

Effective January 1, 2017, most people will not need a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

Lawmakers passed the measure last year, before Gov. Nixon vetoed it. Then, the Republican-led legislature managed to override that veto.

“You don’t have to ask permission anymore, you don’t have to pay a fee anymore, and your name is not going to be on some centralized database. You have the ability to carry without the permit now,” said Paul Bastean, owner of Ultimate Defense Firing Range in St. Charles County.

Bastean, who is also a police officer and trains law enforcement, said he supports the measure, but wished training was still required.

“The bad thing is, they eliminated the training requirement. The good thing is, responsible gun owners are still coming to us and they’re still getting training,” he added.

Beyond lifting the rule about permits, the law also expands the state’s castle doctrine and creates a stand your ground right.

New Gun Laws Coming in 2017 Tell You All You Need to Know About Who States View as the REAL Threats

Americans will ring in the new year with some new gun laws — and some of those new laws are no cause for celebration if you’re a gun lover. Still, others are cause for Second Amendment advocates to pop open the champagne.

On the positive side for gun rights fans, President-elect Donald Trump may be one of the most Second Amendment-friendly presidents elected to office in recent times. He won the NRA endorsement during the campaign and established a Second Amendment Coalition of gun rights groups, grassroots workers, and even entertainers to press for continued fulsome gun rights.

Democrats Own These Terrorist Attacks On Police And They’re Only Going To Get Worse

We are entering one of the most dangerous periods in the 240 years of the American story, where the very concept of civility itself is under threat from a major political party, its allies in the media, and increasingly violent domestic terrorist allies.

Let’s be very, very clear: the Democrat Party is directly attacking the American way of life itself. They seek to seize the power to place citizens they don’t like on secret lists, and then use those lists as a way to brand citizens as “undesirables” who will be summarily stripped of their rights without recourse or appeal.

We declared our independence from people who thought the government should have the power to act this way 240 years ago, and fought a long war that was triggered by a government attempt to strip Americans of the right to bear arms.

5 Gun Control Arguments We Are Tired Of Hearing

Gun control advocates recycle the same talking points when arguing why the federal government should curtail people’s Second Amendment rights.

The anti-gun lobby deploys a range of straw-man arguments, like the Founding Fathers considered “arms” to mean single-loader muskets, and the “militia” to be the only legitimate custodnian of these arms. In more recent years, the no-guns crowd has even called for outright confiscation.

Hillary’s Enemies List: Dianna Muller

In response to a Democratic presidential debate question on Oct. 13, 2015, Hillary Clinton put the 5 million members of the NRA at the top of the list of enemies she is most proud of.

This is unprecedented: On national television, a candidate for president of the United States named peaceable, law-abiding gun owners, who are simply trying to protect the Second Amendment, as her biggest enemies. She even listed NRA members ahead of Iran—the world’s largest sponsor of state terrorism. Drug cartels, Vladimir Putin, North Korea and ISIS terrorists didn’t even get a mention.

Clinton’s declaration made us wonder how NRA members feel about being recklessly declared her enemy. So we decided to ask them: How does it feel to be named Public Enemy Number 1 by Hillary Clinton?

‘Reckless’ Excuse Good Enough for Hillary to Skate but Not for Gun Owners

If you’re one of the elites, you can get away with practically anything. If you’re not, a mere act of recklessness can result in a lifetime gun ban.

Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information,” FBI Director James Comey said in announcing the wholly unsurprising decision to not recommend criminal charges to the Loretta Lynch Justice Department.

“All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice,” Comey explained.

HILLARY CLINTON SAYS AMERICANS ‘DESERVE BETTER’ THAN THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS

Hillary Clinton was speaking at the US Conference of Mayors and said a pretty messed up thing, even for her. The democratic nominee expressed her opinion that Americans deserve better than a Constitutional right. Seriously, she said that we deserve better than the right to keep and bear arms. Somehow this lunatic thinks that being defenseless against criminals and a tyrannical government is preferable to the freedom and protection of gun ownership. (video start at 10:10)

Why Hillary can’t ban AR-15 rifles She should learn something about the guns and the fear she clings to

At every opportunity, Hillary Clinton attacks, denigrates and marginalizes roughly a third of the American population — the 100 million who own firearms — with her promises to “do something” about this country’s “gun culture,” to reverse the Supreme Court’s decision in the Heller case that individual citizens have the right to own guns, to remove the protection from junk lawsuits Congress gave the firearms industry when it was faced with an organized assault (30-plus lawsuits) designed to put all gun companies out of business, and to bring back and expand the Clinton ban on the most popular firearms in America — semi-automatic rifles, best exemplified by the AR-15.

The problem is that neither she, nor Congress, can ban this ubiquitous rifle, which is owned and used by millions of Americans for hunting, competition and recreational shooting.

“No civilian should own this gun”

The New York Daily News hijacks the honor of the U.S. armed forces for a little political crusade.

On the cover of the New York Daily News was a picture of an American Marine wearing battle regalia in Iraq. The headline over it read: “No civilian should own this gun.” The editors of the Daily News, thinking themselves clever, asked: “Hey, NRA: This Marine served in Iraq and says assault rifles should be banned. Does that make him a gun-grabbing commie, too?”

no one should own this

Let’s begin with the obvious. The Marine on the cover, who is U.S. Representative Seth Moulton, a Massachusetts Democrat, is in the photo holding what is, unless my eyes deceive me, an M-4 carbine, which would make sense inasmuch as that rifle is the weapon generally issued to Marines serving in Iraq. No civilian should own this gun? We could argue about that. What we cannot argue about is this: No civilian can own that rifle under current law. The sale of new fully automatic weapons has been generally prohibited for 30 years, meaning that the particular weapon Representative Moulton is holding, which was first produced in 1988, has literally never for a second been for sale to the civilian market in the United States.

I am going to get all of your guns.

Then the only people that will have guns are into the hands of terrorists, organised crime, outlaw motorcycle gangs, mid-level crime groups and petty thieves, while punishing the law-abiding and ignoring violent criminals.

Criminals will always find a way and more often than not they begin to feast when the populace is unarmed.

Obama epitomizes the reality of emotion over reason style over substance and lies rather than truth. He offers us safety, maybe, if we surrender our rights and submit to the dictates of our masters, oops I meant politicians and plutocrats. He blames the tragedy not on the cowardly criminal who committed the acts of terror but on the instrumentality and those citizens who have refused to accept his views and solutions.

Here is an interesting take on the convicts that escaped in Lincoln last week.

Here is an interesting take on the convicts that escaped in Lincoln last week.

Instead of using a firearm to protect your famiy… this Anti-Rights group based in Nebraska suggests ‘locking your doors’ & reminds you that criminals buy guns at yard sales!

If that is the case…see you guys on the garage sale circuit!

Maybe the escaped criminals are looking for Tupperware and 1970s furniture.

Anti gun people….Lots of fear mongering & no knowledge of the law.

It’ll never happen to me

We all say, “It’ll never happen to me.” The man in the following story probably thought the same way, until it happened to him.

An unlocked door. That’s all it takes to become a victim of a home robbery, assault or rape.

Are you prepared? Are you a potential victim? What are you doing right (or wrong)?

While we are not all home defense experts, some basic things to do are keeping valuables out of sight, locking doors, shutting garages and gates and checking them often. Know your neighbors, meet them and talk with them regularly. In today’s digital age we must be wary about what we post online. Vacations and big purchases are things we want to show off to friends and family, but who is really on our friends list, or, what is your privacy set to? What about your friend’s privacy settings? Just some things to think about.

Lets say something horrible would happen, like a home burglary. Do you have a plan? Does your family know it and practice it? Whatever you and your family choose, make sure everyone knows what to do. Will you use a firearm and flashlight or pepper spray or just call the cops and hope for the best? Its your house, you family, your responsibility. Remember, you are accountable for every shot you take. Period.

No matter how you decide to protect your loved ones, it is something not to take lightly. -RobertH
