postheadericon 10 Republicans Back New Bill That Would Ban Bump Fire Stocks

By Dan Zimmerman via The Truth About Guns

Everyone’s favorite anti-gun Senator, Diane Feinstein wasted no time in introducing a bump fire stock ban in the Senate last week. Now a similar bill has been introduced in the House of Representatives. Like DiFi’s bill, the House version would also outlaw not only the manufacture and sleeve bump fire stocks, but also possession of one.

That would mean that, should the bills pass and be signed into law, the tens of thousands of stocks already owned by law abiding gun owners would become contraband.

Unlike the Senate bill, the House bill was introduced by a Republican, Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo. And this bill has the support of nine other GOP representatives. Here’s a list for your information and edification:

Peter King (N.Y.)
Leonard Lance (N.J.)
Patrick Meehan (Pa.)
Ed Royce (Calif.)
Chris Smith (N.J.)
Erik Paulsen (Minn.)
Ryan Costello (Pa.)
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.)
Charlie Dent (Pa.)

postheadericon Surprise, Surprise, Iowa Residents: Iowa Bill Would Eliminate Background Checks, Allow Permitless Carry

DES MOINES, IOWA — Legislators in the Iowa House are currently looking at a bill that would eliminate background checks as a prerequisite for a concealed carry permit. It would also allow Iowa residents who are legally allowed to possess firearms to carry concealed without a permit. In effect, Iowa could be looking at becoming the next permitless concealed carry state.

According to the Daily Caller, House Study Bill 133 looks to abolish previous requirements for a permit. It also allows teenagers of 14 years-of-age and older to use firearms under the direct supervision of a parent or legal guardian.

This opens up the Second Amendment to more Americans and also promotes child education of firearms — something that’s always needed.

As we discussed in a previous article, why don’t we introduce gun education as basic education? In a country that promotes responsible, law-abiding carrying of firearms, why wouldn’t we want teenagers to get the opportunity to actively learn about firearms first-hand?

The Iowa House Judiciary Committee approved HB 133 to go to the floor for debate. If passed, it would still need to pass the Senate and then the governor’s desk before getting signed into law.

While the permitting process would still remain for Iowans who want to travel out of state, it would drastically reduce the requirements for the average citizen to carry concealed at home.

Initial debate points issued by concerned Iowans include arguments such as police misidentifying law-abiding citizens.

Laural Clinton, of Des Moines, is concerned her three African-American children will be targeted as criminals even when they’re following legal procedure.

“I want you to understand that when you see my child, you’re not going to see a law-abiding citizen, and that’s inherently the history of our country,” Clinton said.

This fear could be appropriately addressed by instituting training initiatives within local and state police to ensure police are equipped with the necessary skills to handle those situations.

Education should and will always be a major component of responsible gun ownership.

This extends from law enforcement to the individual.

Just because Iowa is looking at permitless concealed carry shouldn’t mean an individual avoids training. For a lot of first-time and experienced gun owners, firearm safety courses can be both a method to expand and correct previous knowledge as well as be the incentive for an individual to practice more vigorously.

The rights of the citizen ought not be infringed where no significant, verifiable claim exists to act as argument to impede it. As of present, no quantifiable arguments appear on the horizon. We may, as Americans, have to acknowledge the fact that despite gun violence and gun injury rates, we are ready, willing, and able to tackle responsible concealed carry.

postheadericon Two Armed Citizens Get Involved In 4th Of July Shooting: What Would You Have Done?

AUGUSTA, GEORGIA — When two illegally armed criminals got into a shoot-out at a public fireworks event, two legally armed bystanders stepped in. In a crowded environment along the Riverwalk in Augusta, Georgia, shots rang out even as the fireworks finale was finishing up. The first criminal, just released from prison last year, was hit in the face and leg.

Two fast-thinking bystanders quickly stepped in. One bystander tackled the injured criminal and a concealed carrier opened fire on the second. The second criminal may have been hit but fled the scene before any could identify him.

As for the crook who got hit in the face, his gun was traced back to a stolen firearm in South Carolina. So the argument that “thugs can’t get their hands on guns” goes right out the window.

The second one is believed to have dropped his gun but it was later recovered by a citizen.

The two good guys were admonished for their actions but the Richmond County Sheriff had a strongly worded warning for others who may consider such actions.

via the Augusta Chronicle

“Anytime you engage in a dangerous situation, there are consequences. Fortunately in this particular case, no one else was injured, and that is great,” Richmond County Sheriff Richard Roundtree said. “But given the circumstances, it could have gone terribly wrong.”

This was a tough call as a concealed carrier to make. At a crowded event attended by the public, it is easy for the two criminals to have accidentally hit or killed someone around them. The concealed carriers’ first instincts to put down the bad guys likely saved others in the area from harm.

Police tend to warn against such public displays because there is a serious risk of injury or death. That said, these good guys were able to neutralize both attackers and get one on the ground and the other to flee.

Ultimately, we always try to reinforce the core concept of protecting self, family, and property. When it gets to this type of event, two criminals getting in a shoot-out in a public place, it’s a hard call to make as to whether or not to get involved.

A concealed carrier does not have to involve himself if he does not want to. It may even be highly advised not to if he isn’t certain he can put rounds on target without injuring others in the nearby area.

In situations like this, if a concealed carrier does not want to get involved, take cover.

Two dumb thugs getting in a shoot-out likely means neither cares who gets hurt around them. They’re too busy fighting over egos to notice if innocent people get caught in the cross-hairs.

Do what you think is best to protect yourself and those close to you from harm. Good job on both of these brave men for rising to the occasion.

postheadericon Proposed School District Policy Would Allow 5 Armed Faculty Members On Campus

KINGSBURG, CALIFORNIA — Pulling a sheet from the Ohio district school system’s play book, one California school district is allowing up to five armed faculty members to be on campus. The school superintendent was one of the main proponents of a new measure which would allow a select group of staff members to carry concealed handguns to protect children and other faculty members.

As ABC 30 Action News reports, Superintendent Randy Morris believes that a rise in the targeting of schools by armed criminals is at the center of this proposal.

“The intent is to put the message out there,” Morris explained. “‘Hey, we are in a position where we would really like to be committed to protecting our staff and our kids, and we take that obligation very seriously.’”

The superintendent is currently in the process of getting his own concealed carry permit — which can be an arduous and difficult journey for some Californian residents. He believes, in addition to appointing five concealed carriers for the district, those people would also receive extensive training from local law enforcement so they can coordinate and work together in the event of an emergency.

“God forbid this happens and one of our staff members does draw a weapon. If police show up, they need to know how to respond and what to do,” said Morris.

If you ask me, that sounds like somebody being proactive in deterring criminals and bad guys from targeting schools in that district. While it’s sure to meet some resistance, the proposal has been read once at its first meeting and will be read and voted on a second time in a short while.

Here’s hoping that proactive measures to defeat potential armed threats takes root both in California and across the country.
