BREAKING :
THE SOUNDS OF GUNFIRE RINGING THROUGH HER SOUTHEAST D.C. NEIGHBORHOOD HAD ALWAYS KEPT NETA VAUGHT AWAY FROM FIREARMS. TO HER, GUNS SYMBOLIZED THE VIOLENCE THAT THE MOTHER OF THREE WORKED SO HARD TO SHIELD HER FAMILY FROM CONTINUED SHOOTINGS THAT KEPT HER FROM GIVING HER TWO TEENAGERS THE CHILDHOOD SHE WANTED. BUT AFTER WITNESSING THE NATIONAL TEMPERATURE RISE OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS, BETWEEN THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND ONGOING PROTESTS AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY, VAUGHT FELT SHE NEEDED TO RECONSIDER HER SELF-DEFENSE OPTIONS. “AS A SINGLE MOM, I DON’T FEEL AS PROTECTED ANYMORE, AND I WANT TO BE ABLE TO PROTECT MY CHILDREN,” VAUGHT SAID. GUN-CONTROL GROUP EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY WILL BE SPENDING $1.6 MILLION ON POLITICAL ADS ACROSS, RADIO, INTERNET AND MAILERS THIS WEEK TARGETING REPUBLICANS IN LEGISLATIVE RACES IN AN ATTEMPT TO FLIP THE STATE’S LEGISLATURE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 60 YEARS.

THE CITY RECORDED 223 SHOOTINGS IN JULY AND AUGUST, UP FROM 77 OVER THE SAME PERIOD IN 2019.

"SLEEPY JOE IS GONNA TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY," TRUMP DECLARED AT A RALLY IN MINNESOTA ON FRIDAY NIGHT, DISPARAGING HIS POLITICAL RIVAL AND DEMOCRATIC EFFORTS TO TIGHTEN FIREARM CONTROLS. THE DEATH OF SUPREME COURT ASSOCIATE JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG HAS INJECTED FRESH URGENCY INTO TRUMP’S RHETORIC AND ONE OF AMERICA’S MOST DIVISIVE STRUGGLES. AN INTERNAL REVIEW IS UNDERWAY INTO HOW A COWTOWN GUN FIGHTER WAS HURT IN AN ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING OVER THE WEEKEND. SEVERAL GUNFIGHTERS WERE SHOOTING AT EACH OTHER DURING A HISTORIC RE-ENACTMENT GUNFIGHT AT WICHITA'S OLD COWTOWN MUSEUM FRIDAY, SEPT. 18. THE PARTICIPANTS WERE USING REAL FIREARMS, BUT THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE LOADED WITH BLANK BULLETS. THE SCENE CHANGED FROM ACTING TO REAL LIFE JUST AFTER 9 P.M., WHEN ONE OF THE GUNFIGHTERS WAS SHOT. THE 24-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS TAKEN TO A HOSPITAL IN SERIOUS CONDITION, AND HE IS EXPECTED TO SURVIVE.

NAT’L – SELF-PROTECTION – These 10 Examples of Defensive Gun Use Underscore Second Amendment’s True Purpose

IN ANNOUNCING THE LAUNCH OF “SPORTSMEN AND SPORTSWOMEN FOR BIDEN,” THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT’S CAMPAIGN DEMONSTRATED EARLIER THIS MONTH HOW MANY GUN CONTROL ADVOCATES MISCONSTRUE THE PURPOSE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT. THE COALITION OF “50 PROMINENT HUNTERS AND ANGLERS” STATED THAT JOE BIDEN WOULD “PROTECT THE SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF LAW-ABIDING AMERICANS TO PURCHASE AND RESPONSIBLY USE FIREARMS FOR HUNTING AND SPORTING.” UNFORTUNATELY FOR GUN CONTROL ADVOCATES, THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS NOT, AND NEVER HAS BEEN, CONCERNED WITH THE PROTECTION OF HUNTING OR SPORT SHOOTING. IT IS CONCERNED WITH THE PROTECTION OF SOMETHING MUCH MORE FUNDAMENTAL TO AMERICAN DEMOCRACY—MAINTAINING THE “SECURITY OF A FREE STATE.”

CO – RETAILERS – Colorado gun sales remain at high volume, prompting $1.3 million request to speed up background checks

A SURGE IN DEMAND FOR FIREARMS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC MEANS COLORADO’S BACKGROUND CHECK PROCESS CURRENTLY TAKES AT LEAST 500 TIMES LONGER THAN NORMAL – AND IT’S NOT SLOWING DOWN ANY TIME SOON. IN AN EFFORT TO SPEED THE PROCESS BACK UP, THE POLIS ADMINISTRATION IS ASKING STATE LAWMAKERS TO APPROVE $1.3 MILLION IN EMERGENCY SPENDING TO HIRE MORE STAFF AS SOON AS OCTOBER. THE REQUEST, ANNOUNCED THIS WEEK, WOULDN’T DRAW FROM TAXES. RATHER, THE MONEY WOULD COME OUT OF THE FEES COLLECTED WHEN A POTENTIAL GUN BUYER REQUESTS A BACKGROUND CHECK.

NV – RETAILERS – Las Vegas gun dealer will stop selling high-capacity magazines in NJ to settle lawsuit (VIDEO)

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Uncertain Times Have Led To Gun Supply Ammo Shortage In Florida, Nationwide (VIDEO)

IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES, PEOPLE ARE MAKING SURE THEY HAVE THE RESOURCES TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES IF TROUBLE COMES THEIR WAY. THAT HAS LED TO A SHORTAGE OF AMMUNITION AT GUN SHOPS AS OWNERS SCRAMBLE TO TRY AND KEEP IT IN STOCK. “PEOPLE ARE SCARED WITH EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING ON AND BASICALLY THEY ARE GOING CRAZY BUYING AMMO RIGHT NOW,” SAID ORLANDO GARCIA, WITH ZULU ARMOURY IN DORAL, FLORIDA. IT’S THE SAME ACROSS THE NATION AS AMMUNITION SALES ARE EXPLODING AND ARE PRICES SOARING. THE CONSTANT BARRAGE OF TELEVISION AND NEWSPAPER COVERAGE OF THE PANDEMIC, STREET VIOLENCE, DEMONSTRATIONS, AND POLITICAL DIVISION HAS PUT SOME PEOPLE INTO A DEFENSIVE AND PROTECTIVE MODE.

AR – HUNTING – Fun of a gun

HUNTERS KILL THE BIGGEST PERCENTAGE OF DEER ANNUALLY IN ARKANSAS WITH MODERN FIREARMS. MODERN GUN DEER SEASON IS VERY LONG, ESPECIALLY IN SOUTH ARKANSAS, AND IT OCCURS WHEN DEER ARE MOST ACTIVE AND MOST ACCESSIBLE. IF YOU ARE NEW TO HUNTING, MODERN GUN DEER SEASON IS DEFINITELY THE BEST TIME TO EXPERIENCE THE SPORT. IF YOU ARE NEW TO HUNTING, YOU ARE PROBABLY ALSO INEXPERIENCED WITH FIREARMS. IF YOU WERE NOT RAISED IN A HUNTING FAMILY, FIREARMS MIGHT EVEN INTIMIDATE YOU. UNDERSTAND THAT A GUN IS A SPECIALIZED TOOL. LIKE ANY TOOL, THERE IS A RIGHT WAY AND WRONG WAY TO USE IT.

CHARLEEN SHAKMAN ARRIVED AT A JEFFERSON COUNTY GUN SHOP THINKING SHE WAS ABOUT TO BUY HARD-TO-FIND BULLETS. INSTEAD, SHE WAS MET THAT SATURDAY LAST MONTH BY A SIGN ON THE DOOR OF MODERN WEAPON SYSTEMS STATING NO MASKS WERE ALLOWED IN THE STORE. “MASKS ARE FOR CRY BABIES, DEMOCRATS AND ROBBERS,” THE SIGN SAID, IN PART. ”I’D NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT,” SAID SHAKMAN, A GUN HOBBYIST FROM WILDWOOD WHO ENJOYS TARGET SHOOTING WITH HER HUSBAND.

PA – GUN CRIME – To Combat Philadelphia Gun Violence, We Must Dismantle the Office of Violence Prevention

AT THIS POINT, TO DESCRIBE PHILADELPHIA AS A BROKEN RECORD IN HOW IT RESPONDS TO GUN VIOLENCE WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT. HERE’S HOW IT USUALLY GOES: PHILADELPHIANS GET SHOT. THE MEDIA REPORTS HOW IT’S AN UNPRECEDENTED MOMENT. SOCIAL MEDIA DEMANDS MORE ACTION FROM THE CITY. OFFICIALS CONDUCT HEARINGS, TASK FORCE MEETINGS AND TEARFUL RALLIES WITHOUT MUCH ELSE TO OFFER … AND THE SHIT REPEATS ITSELF. PHILADELPHIA IS NOW SECOND ONLY TO CHICAGO IN THE NUMBER OF HOMICIDES THIS YEAR.

DC – GUN POLITICS – Fear Of Biden Gun Control Plans Could Drive Gun Sales Even Higher

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOSEPH BIDEN AND SEN. KAMALA HARRIS ARE PUSHING FOR AN AGGRESSIVE GUN CONTROL POLICY THAT IS MAKING GUN MAKERS NERVOUS AND HAVING THE UNINTENDED EFFECT OF DRIVING SALES TO EPIC PROPORTIONS. “GUN SALES ARE ALREADY ELEVATED, IN NO SMALL PART TO THE THREAT TO GUN RIGHTS POSED BY THE BIDEN/HARRIS TICKET,” SAID MARK OLIVA, DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS FOR THE NATIONAL SHOOTING SPORTS FOUNDATION.

NYC – GUN CRIME – Are NYC’s gun laws still tough?

NEW YORK CITY IS THOUGHT TO HAVE SOME OF THE TOUGHEST GUN LAWS IN THE COUNTRY. IN FACT, IT SEEMS EASIER TO GET A GUN ILLEGALLY HERE THAN TO GET APPROVED FOR A LICENSE OR PERMIT AND PURCHASE ONE, AS EVIDENCE BY THE RECENT ERUPTION IN FIREARM VIOLENCE IN OUR STREETS. “IF WE ARE THE MOST ANTI-GUN BIG CITY IN AMERICA, HOW COULD WE ALLOW THE NUMBER OF SHOOTINGS IN 2020 TO HAVE ALREADY SURPASSED THE NUMBER OF SHOOTINGS IN 2019, WITH FOUR MONTHS TO GO?” ASKS DAILY NEWS REPORTER.

NAT’L – SELF-PROTECTION – Riots Likely Drove 2020’s Biggest Gun Sales Spike

IN A RECORD-BREAKING YEAR FOR GUN BUYING, THE BIGGEST SPIKE IN FIREARMS PURCHASES CAME AS PROTESTS AND RIOTS BROKE OUT ACROSS THE NATION IN JUNE, A WASHINGTON FREE BEACON ANALYSIS OF FBI DATA INDICATES. WHILE MARCH SAW THE MOST GUNS SOLD THUS FAR IN 2020, SEASONALLY ADJUSTED DATA SHOW THAT IT WAS JUNE—THE MONTH AFTER THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD AND SUBSEQUENT ONSET OF PROTESTS AND CIVIL UNREST—THAT MOST EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS, MASSIVELY OUTPACING USUALLY LANGUID SUMMERTIME SALES. THAT SUGGESTS IMAGES OF STORES BEING LOOTED AND BUILDINGS BEING BURNED ACROSS MANY OF AMERICA'S LARGEST CITIES DROVE CITIZENS TO PURCHASE GUNS AT EVEN HIGHER RATES, RELATIVE TO USUAL SEASONAL PATTERNS, THAN THE ONSET OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.

OR – GUN CRIME – ‘Arms race’: How the Portland shooting shows protesters on the right and the left are bringing guns

THOUGH HE WAS A MIDDLE-AGED FATHER, THE OREGON MAN RECEIVED A GUNSHOT WOUND WHEN HE INTERCEDED IN A CONFRONTATION, WAS CAUGHT DRIVING 111 MILES PER HOUR IN A CADILLAC WHILE APPARENTLY RACING HIS 17-YEAR-OLD SON IN ANOTHER CAR AND PACKED A GUN AS HE JOINED IN THE PORTLAND PROTESTS. IT WAS THERE THAT HE ALLEGEDLY SHOT AND KILLED A PRO-TRUMP COUNTER-PROTESTER ONLY TO DIE HIMSELF THURSDAY IN A SHOOTOUT WITH FEDERAL AGENTS WHO HAD COME TO ARREST HIM OUTSIDE OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON.

NAT’L – GUN POLITICS – After Kenosha & Portland, Why Aren’t We Talking About Guns?

THE KILLINGS ON THE STREETS OF KENOSHA, WIS., AND PORTLAND, ORE., BY GUN-TOTING, SELF-APPOINTED MINISTERS OF JUSTICE BOLSTER ONE OF THE MAIN ARGUMENTS MADE BY GUN CONTROL ADVOCATES: WIDESPREAD ACCESS TO GUNS LEADS TO NEEDLESS DEATH. IN BOTH CASES, CONFRONTATIONS BETWEEN POLITICAL OPPONENTS QUICKLY ESCALATED, SHOTS WERE FIRED, AND PEOPLE DIED. FURTHER, THE KENOSHA SHOOTING INVOLVED A SEMI-AUTOMATIC “ASSAULT” RIFLE, IN A STATE WITH AN OPEN CARRY LAW (THOUGH THE 17-YEAR-OLD SHOOTER, KYLE RITTENHOUSE, IS ONE YEAR SHORT OF BEING ABLE TO LEGALLY OPEN CARRY IN THE STATE). YET THE SHOOTINGS HAVE NOT SPARKED A FRESH DIALOGUE ABOUT GUN CONTROL. WE ARE NOT SPENDING MUCH TIME AT ALL DEBATING BACKGROUND CHECKS, ASSAULT WEAPONS BANS OR OPEN CARRY LAWS. WHY AREN’T WE TALKING ABOUT GUNS?

IL – GUN CONTROL – The Chicago Gun Myth

THE TRAGICALLY INCOMPETENT MAYOR OF CHICAGO, LORI LIGHTFOOT, APPEARED ON CNN’S STATE OF THE UNION THIS WEEKEND TO DEFLECT ATTENTION FROM THE HORROR SHOW UNFOLDING IN HER CITY BY BLAMING INTERLOPERS FOR ITS SPIKING MURDER RATE: “WE ARE BEING INUNDATED WITH GUNS FROM STATES THAT HAVE VIRTUALLY NO GUN CONTROL, NO BACKGROUND CHECKS, NO BAN ON ASSAULT WEAPONS — THAT IS HURTING CITIES LIKE CHICAGO.” ALTHOUGH THESE ACCUSATIONS HAVE LEVELED BY CHICAGO POLITICIANS FOR DECADES NOW, THEY ARE A MYTH. FOR ONE THING, THERE IS NO STATE IN THE NATION WITH “VIRTUALLY NO GUN CONTROL” OR “NO BACKGROUND CHECKS.”
