    Gun Watch ^ | 17 September, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    In May of 2012,  Clifford Charles Tyler filed a suit to regain his Second Amendment rights, which had been improperly withheld from him when he attempted to buy a firearm. When he attempted to purchase a firearm, he had been denied because he had been involuntarily committed 28 years before. The District Court dismissed the lawsuit on January 29, 2013. Tyler appealed to the Sixth Circuit.  A three judge panel of the Sixth Circuit ruled the provision unconstitutional in December of 2014. The Obama administration found the case important enough that they asked for, and got, an en banc review....

    This case is not as blatant as many you believe it to be. I am not perfect and I definitely don’t know everything. I have discussed this with several black officers and the following is my opinion based on the information available at this time. My opinion could change if new information is released. The family of Mr. Crutcher kept stating that Mr. Crutcher had car trouble. When the family speaks of him, it came off as if his car broke down, he flagged down an officer, asked for help and got shot. That is not what happened. When a...

    There’s a new Harvard/Northeastern study that’s all over my news feeds, and it confirms pretty much what anyone paying attention already knows:1. America has more guns in more hands than ever before. 2. Women shooters are on the rise. 3. The vast majority of gun owners are handgun owners and only have one or two handguns. 4. Most gun owners have guns for personal protection, not hunting.I want to take each of these in turn because they’re all important.More Guns, More Owners First, the original headline of this big Guardian piece on the study advertised ‘more guns in fewer hands’...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – To much of the world, Charlotte is the Queen City — a gleaming downtown, state-of-the-art stadiums, sparkling new mass transit, the nation's banking capital. But a very different Charlotte came into the spotlight in the past few days. Move outside the city's core and there are neighborhoods like the one where a white police officer shot and killed a black man, Keith Scott, setting off violent protests. Places where residents tire of seeing police only when teams of officers sweep in to make arrests, and remember well other blacks killed by police officers who did not face...

Once inside, the ticket counter agent knew her gun protocol inside and out.  No problem.  The TSA agent did not need to X-ray.  Maybe an extra 5 minutes, max.  Going through the security screening a...

    Ahead of November’s presidential election, the AARP has provided on its website a voter guide featuring responses by both major candidates to a range of issue-based questions. One inquiry that resulted in stark policy differences between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump dealt with their respective plans to deal with terrorism. While Clinton paid lip service to what she called a “comprehensive plan” to target terror groups operating around the world and recruiting online, her answer soon morphed into her effort to address “violence broadly,” notably by making it harder for Americans to exercise their Second Amendment right.

    Lionfish are an invasive species doing a lot of harm to underwater ecosystems. They’re basically the feral pigs of oceans reefs. This underwater Glock-fishing video was originally made to see if this group of guys could shoot a Glock underwater, and once they realized it was possible, it developed into much more. With no known predator, the lionfish has been eradicating baitfish all across the ocean. These guys do their part in slowing the lionfish devastation by bringing their Glocks underwater with them and firing away. The guns had to have a few modifications done to them, and then they...

    Lock & Load If Hillary Clinton gets her way, the concept of firearm ownership as an individual right will be eliminated. That’s not up for debate. She, her campaign, and her daughter have repeatedly signaled that she’ll appoint Supreme Court justices who will overturn D.C. vs Heller as part of her ongoing effort to gut the 2nd Amendment. Never mind that law-abiding citizens use firearms for self-defense every single day. Your ability to defend your family, home, and property irrelevant. Her agenda is all that matters. One wonders what she’d say to the woman who appears in the video below...

    The CZ-75 is a pistol made by Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod (CZUB) in the Czech Republic that has both semi-automatic and selective fire variants. First introduced in 1975, it is one of the original “wonder nines” featuring a staggered-column magazine, all-steel construction, and a hammer forged barrel. It is widely distributed throughout the world. It is the most common handgun in the Czech Republic. Like most fully automatic firearms, accuracy sort of goes out the window, with the CZ you also need to apply some death grip to hang onto it. But on the Hollywood side, you sure look good...

He was also charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon, reckless driving, and assaulting his wife, but these charges were later dismissed. Here...

    With the exception of the United States, Switzerland is the Western nation with the strongest tradition of gun rights. The Confoederatio Helvetica has survived for all these centuries by requiring universal military service, and by affirming the right of Swiss citizens to keep and bear arms. The European Union wants to change all that. Gun ownership as allowed in Switzerland runs contrary to EU laws on the prevention of terrorism. Although Switzerland is not a member state of the EU, it is a signatory of treaties that require it to “harmonize” its laws with those of the EU in certain...

    First, there were 990 fatal police shootings in 2015. How does this compare to other causes of death? Well, I can’t tell you because so few people are killed by police. The number is so small that it is outside the range of the usual mortality lists. I can say that death by police is not in the top fifty causes of death in the US, so it is relatively rare. It is extremely rare for women, because the overwhelming majority of those killed by police were men. And I would be greatly remiss if I did not highlight that...

    A local NAACP leader told CNN’s Carol Costello Thursday that it didn’t actually matter whether or not black Charlotte man Keith Scott had a gun on him when he was shot and killed by police. Scott’s death led to protests and violence for the past two days, after his family reported that he was holding a book when he died. Charlotte police have called that false, saying that police body camera footage shows he was brandishing a gun and that they recovered a weapon from the scene. But the president of the Charlotte chapter of the NAACP Corine Mack said...

In Germany, ten people were killed by police last year, according to a report on Thursday by publishing group Funke Mediengruppe, citing figures from the German Police University. That means that while the population of the US is roughly four times that of Germany, the number of fatal police shootings there is about 100 times greater. …

During a House Homeland Security Committee hearing titled "Stopping the next attack: How to keep our city streets from becoming the battleground," Rep. Brian Higgins said American streets already are a battleground where people are 3,000 times more likely to be killed by an American with a gun than by a terrorist.

They want to feel safe. They want to be safe. We can help provide that safety by closing the terror loophole. But Democrats can’t do it alone. We need Republicans’ help,” Reid said.

    A day after police in Oklahoma released video that shows a white Tulsa police officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man, attorneys representing the slain man’s family released photos that they said contradict a key claim in authorities’ version of events. At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Benjamin Crump — a civil rights lawyer who has represented many families of those killed in high-profile police shootings — said Terence Crutcher never reached his hands into the driver’s side window of his stalled sport-utility vehicle before he was shot by police. Crutcher couldn’t have reached into the vehicle, Crump said, because...

    The new Harvard-Northeastern survey is very disappointing. There are two points to this survey. That the percentage of the population owning guns is falling and that a very small percent of the population is buying a huge number of guns. The new book The War on Guns has a chapter showing that both of these points are inaccurate. — If one looks at all the surveys on the question of changes in gun ownership, most surveys show that gun ownership rates have been constant over time (some evidence shows that gun ownership has been increasing). A brief discussion of some...

That is exactly how it has...

    WASHINGTON -- The Senate minority whip told reporters on Capitol Hill today that the Minnesota mall stabbings and the New York/New Jersey bombings were "sad reminders that this Congress has done nothing -- nothing to prevent dangerous people from acquiring guns and explosives to carry out future attacks on Americans." Outside of a closed policy luncheon, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Republicans "have seen multiple opportunities come and go to bring forward and pass bipartisan legislation to prevent terrorists from buying firearms and explosives, closing the so-called terror gap loophole." "All of which have been defeated by the Republican majority....

    While criticizing Donald Trump for supposedly inciting violence against Hillary Clinton, Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine indulged in a violent fantasy of his own. “You know, I’d like to punch the guy in the face,” Kaine said of Trump. “He is using language that is an incitement to violence or an encouragement of violence or at least being kind of cavalier and reckless about violence, and that has no place in any election…” Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, had just asked Kaine about Trump’s comment on Friday night when Trump said he thinks Clinton’s bodyguards “should disarm. Take...

    If you are against violence, you have to be in favor of its death.The past 48 hours have been especially violent for America, with deadly attacks in Minnesota, New York and New Jersey. As much as none of us in our right minds rejoices in the death of anyone, there are times when the death of evil should – and must – take precedence over the death of the innocent. I don’t love guns – but I do love innocent people. This is why I know how to use, and have been certified to conceal-carry, a legal firearm. It’s why...

    When it comes to ARs, it all goes back to Colt. Sure, Eugene Stoner at ArmaLite developed the 7.62mm AR-10 that would evolve to become the AR-15 in 5.56mm, but it was Colt who purchased the rights to the latter design and not only captured government contracts for it as the M16 family of firearms, but also brought it to the civilian market at first as the AR-15 SP1 and then as the “Sporter” family of AR-15 rifles. Now, you should realize that while the AR is a well-accepted and extremely popular firearm today, it was extremely controversial in those...

    Dawn Dolpp isn’t a slave to fashion, preferring function over form. Which is why she used to secure her handgun in her purse with a Velcro strip as recently as 10 years ago. Today, Mrs. Dolpp and other gun-toting women like her don’t have to resort to homemade craft projects to provide themselves with holsters and other accessories for their firearms: Gun-related companies are doing it for them. “One thing the gun and accessory companies are finally understanding is that one size doesn’t fit all,” says Mrs. Dolpp, the leader of the Virginia chapter of The Well Armed Woman. Gun...

    The leader of a statewide law enforcement union said Sunday Nevada’s expanded background check ballot question isn’t about protecting the Second Amendment — it’s about promoting public safety. Jim Dunlap, president of the Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers, told the Las Vegas Sun he disagrees with most of the state’s sheriffs when it comes to Question 1. “As top law enforcement officials, they have an obligation to their employees and to the people who elect them,” he said. “They say their opposition is about the Second Amendment, but our stand is on public safety. This measure will make it...

    The Arms Trade Treaty went into effect on Christmas Eve 2014, but the administration has never submitted the treaty to the Senate for ratification, where it would require 67 senators voting for it to pass. (Photo: Paul Martinka / Splash News/Newscom) The Obama administration upped its commitment to get the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty ratified, a tall order since a bipartisan coalition of 50 senators have already said they oppose the gun treaty Secretary of State John Kerry signed three years ago. Second Amendment advocates are concerned the treaty could provide an international law rationalization for a national...

    America is being held hostage by a tiny minority of absolute lunatics for whom owning two, three, eight or even 10 guns is simply not enough. That’s the main finding of the first comprehensive study of gun owners in two decades. Among the many findings — that handgun purchases are soaring, that Americans wrongly believe they need more guns for personal safety, and that there are more privately held guns in this country than cars — is a bit of news so shocking, it should embolden our spineless lawmakers in Washington: -snip So if gun owners represent a smaller portion...

    In 1968, Lyndon Baines Johnson forced the gun control act of 1968 through a reluctant congress.  The act was not popular, but Johnson's ability to twist arms and bribe Congressmen was legendary.  As part of the deal making to get GCA 1968 through Congress, a provision for amnesty of arms controlled by the National Firearms Act (NFA) was included.  The original amnesty only ran for 30 days, from October 2 to November 1, 1968. In the original amnesty, no tax was charged.  It was not limited by state or to certain dates of manufacture.  Information collected during the registration...
