Teenager or Legal Adult?

Those Eeeevil gun-owners. Defending themselves from teenagers. Police: Georgia homeowner kills teenager who broke into home.

Does that headline conjure up an image of a legal-adult committing a felony?

At a news conference, authorities identified the suspect as 18-year-old Jayven Jackson, of Paulding County, Georgia. They say they had had past dealings with him when he was a juvenile but didn’t release further details.

“When he was a juvenile.” Past tense. Did any of these reporters take 5th grade English? Or would that be 4th grade?

But then, “Law-abiding homeowner defends himself and his family from an adult felon” just doesn’t put the gun-owner in a negative light. And reporters are nothing, if they’re not determined to libel (or is it slander?) gun-owners.

This is actually old news.

A Victory for Gun Owners in the PA Supreme Court

JusticePeople are calling this “major,” but however you slice it, it is a win. MONUMENTAL Decision from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court regarding whether the Open or Conceal Carrying of a Firearm is Reasonable Suspicion of a Crime.

Cops can no longer stop someone just because they are open carrying or concealing a weapon. Both activities are legal, and absent some other specific reason to believe a law is being broken, they can’t harass people.

The Court then went on to agree with the primary argument that I made in the Amicus Brief that just as the police cannot stop an individual who is driving to see if he/she is licensed, police cannot stop an individual with a firearm (without more) to see if he/she is licensed to carry.

That’s my favorite bit of the argument, because it is the most common-sense.

So, one step forward in Pennsylvania. Hat tip to PA Gun Blog, and From the Barrel of a Gun.

I Don’t Think He Passed a Background Check

So how do those on the Gun-hating Left think this should have played out? Should there be no armed security anywhere? Suspect takes security guard’s gun, shoots woman at Cathedral City restaurant, police say.

According to police, the armed security guard got into a fight with several customers as the business was closing and the suspect took his gun during the altercation

He threatened to shoot the security guard, who was calling 911. He did shoot one woman and pistol-whip another. Eventually the cops caught up with him.

Witnesses followed them and called police, who tracked the vehicle to the Arco gas station on Palm Drive, north of Interstate 10.

Law enforcement officials from several agencies converged on the vehicle and took the suspect into custody around 3 a.m., according to Riverside County jail records.

Bail was set at 1 million dollars. Why grant it at all, I wonder?

Texas Passes Carry Bill In the Event of a Disaster

The Left is not pleased. Texas Passes Bill to Let People Open Carry Firearms in the Wake of Natural Disasters.

hen society’s infrastructure has broken down, there’s nothing like a firearm to make sure people stay in line. An armed society is a polite society and all that good stuff.

The Left (and the Progressive Right) are not happy of course.

3D-printed Gun Seized in Connecticut

Leftists screeching in three, two, … Waterbury Police Seize 3D-Printed Gun During Arrest.

“It’s one scary thought. Somebody can print up a gun in their own home,” said Chief James Cetran, President of the CT Police Chiefs Association.

Welcome to the 21st Century.

Oh, and while he wants to ban them, he does acknowledge that criminals don’t follow the law.

“Banning them is good, but having to run across them by people who don’t follow the laws well in the first place, is a scary thought,” added Cetran.

Hat tip goes to Impro Guns, who had this to say.

This pistol seized appears to be a variation of the Songbird model with a steel tube inserted to serve as a stronger barrel. The fame was possibly intentionally broken before arrest.

So would scaredy-cat Chief Cetran be happier if the guns were made out of metal? I doubt it.

David Yaname Speaks at the National Firearms Law Seminar

From April of this year in Indianapolis. How a Card Carrying Liberal Professor Became a Card Carrying Liberal Armed American.

And note: He’s still a liberal college professor. Too many people make the mistake that if you believe in the 2nd Amendment, there are a whole list of other things you have to believe in.

“We have someone (armed with a hand gun) in every building”

In deep blue Washington? WA school district arms staff to deter campus shootings.

“We have someone (armed with a hand gun) in every building”, says Toppenish School District Superintendent, John Cerna. “In some buildings we have multiple people…and nobody knows who they are except me.”

In the event of a school shooter, the first thing you do is call for people with guns to come to the campus. This short-circuits a lot of wait time.
