NC – GUN POLITICS – Bloomberg-funded gun-control group to launch ad blitz against Trump, Republicans in N.C.

A DEEP-POCKETED GROUP CO-FOUNDED BY FORMER NEW YORK CITY MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG IS PLANNING A MAJOR AD BLITZ AGAINST GOP CANDIDATES RUNNING IN NORTH CAROLINA THIS YEAR, ARGUING THAT THEY ARE UNFIT FOR OFFICE BECAUSE THEY OPPOSE INCREASING RESTRICTIONS ON ACCESS TO FIREARMS. THE EFFORT FROM EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY, DUBBED “GUN SENSE MAJORITY: NORTH CAROLINA,” WILL INVOLVE AT LEAST $5 MILLION IN AD SPENDING OPPOSING REPUBLICANS UP AND DOWN THE BALLOT, RANGING FROM PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP TO STATE LEGISLATORS.

TX – RETAILERS – East Texas gun sales skyrocket during COVID-19 pandemic (VIDEO)

RIFLES, SEMIAUTOMATICS, AND REVOLVERS: FIREARMS ARE SELLING AT THE SPEED OF A BULLET. SUPERIOR OUTFITTERS IN TYLER SAY THEIR SALES DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC HAVE INCREASED AROUND A STAGGERING 60%. AND IT’S NOT JUST USUAL CUSTOMERS EITHER. MANY RETAILERS IN A NATIONAL SURVEY SAY THAT NEARLY 40% OF THEIR CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN FIRST-TIME GUN OWNERS. MOST WERE BUYING THE WEAPONS FOR PERSONAL PROTECTION. “WE WENT FROM BEING ABLE TO GET SHIPMENTS IN 24 HOURS TO OUR WHOLESALERS AND MANUFACTURERS BEING BACKED UP FOR SIX TO EIGHT WEEKS. THEY CAN’T EVEN SHIP THE PRODUCT BECAUSE THEY ARE SO FAR BEHIND,” SAID ONE RETAILER.

CA – GUN CONTROL – FROM THE OTHER SIDE: Gun sales are up in California, but a pandemic is not a time to buy firearms

THE RECENT CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN CAUSED A SURGE IN GUN SALES IN CALIFORNIA. THERE WERE 164,000 BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR GUN PURCHASES IN MARCH — A 72% INCREASE OVER THE MONTH EARLIER AND ONE OF THE HIGHEST MONTHS IN THE PAST TWO DECADES. MAY WAS THE THIRD-HIGHEST AMOUNT OF BACKGROUND CHECKS TO PURCHASE GUNS AND AMMO IN THE HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM.

NAT’L – GUN NEWS – Submachine Guns: 5 Best in All of History

THE SUBMACHINE GUN WAS INVENTED DURING WORLD WAR I AS A WEAPON TO DEAL WITH THE CONFINES OF TRENCH WARFARE. SHORT, FULLY AUTOMATIC AND CHAMBERED IN A PISTOL CALIBER, THE SUBMACHINE GUN COULD QUICKLY CLEAR A TRENCH LINE OR BUNKER OF ENEMY TROOPS ARMED WITH LESS WIELDY, SLOWER-FIRING BOLT-ACTION RIFLES. THE “SMG” LATER ARMED PARATROOPERS, VEHICLE CREWS AND GUERRILLAS, AND WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN STREET AND URBAN FIGHTING DURING WORLD WAR II. THE SUBMACHINE GUN HAS GRADUALLY LOST GROUND TO TODAY’S ASSAULT RIFLE, WHICH PACKS A 5.56- OR 5.45-MILLIMETER RIFLE ROUND INTO A FAIRLY SHORT RIFLE, OFTEN WITH A SHORT BARREL OR FOLDING STOCK. NEVERTHELESS, SUBMACHINE GUNS STILL PROLIFERATE ON THE MODERN BATTLEFIELD TODAY, IN THE HANDS OF SPECIAL FORCES AND REAR-AREA TROOPS.

PA – HUNTING – Nothing like traditional hunting camps

THERE IS A PEACEFUL PLACE WHERE THE SOUNDS OF HUMAN INTERVENTION ARE SELDOM HEARD. TUCKED AWAY FROM THE BEATEN PATH IN THE BOTTOM OF A STEEP-SIDED HOLLOW IS WHERE YOU’LL FIND IT. THERE YOU’LL FIND A PIPE MEASURING EIGHT INCHES OR SO ACROSS SET INTO THE SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN THAT GUSHES WITH A TREMENDOUS FLOW OF EXTREMELY COLD WATER. AMAZINGLY, EVEN DURING THE DRIEST SUMMERS THE PIPE RUNS FULL. THE PIPE COULD BE EASILY OVERLOOKED SINCE IT IS SITUATED BEHIND A CAMP WHERE A GATED STATE FOREST ROAD ENDS. AND THAT’S OKAY. NO DOUBT THE OWNERS OF THE CAMP FEEL THE SAME WAY. NO ELECTRIC LINES, AND KEROSENE LAMPS PROVIDE LIGHT AFTER DARK. WOOD OR COAL HEAT STILL PROVIDES WARMTH IN THE WINTER. WHO COULD ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE?

TX – OPINION – The importance of backing the blue

MANY AMERICANS ARE MORE THAN A LITTLE DISMAYED AT THE NOTION OF TURNING AWAY FROM OUR POLICE DEPARTMENTS. MAYORS IN MANY LARGER CITIES ACROSS THIS GREAT LAND ARE NOT ONLY DEMANDING THE LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS BACK OFF AND LET RIOTERS AND LOOTERS RUN AMOK, THEY ARE ACTUALLY TALKING OF DEFUNDING THE DEPARTMENTS. SOME WENT SO FAR AS TO SAY DISBAND POLICE DEPARTMENTS COMPLETELY. THIS IDEA IS BEYOND FOOLISH. IF SOMEONE IS IN FAVOR OF THE LATTER, THEN CANCEL EVERY LAW ON THE BOOKS NOW. WHY HAVE LAWS IF THEY CANNOT BE ENFORCED?

CA – COURTS – Woman Turns to Supreme Court to Get Her Guns Back

IN 2013, LORI RODRIGUEZ CALLED SAN JOSE POLICE TO HER HOME BECAUSE HER HUSBAND WAS HAVING A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS AND MAKING VIOLENT THREATS. SEVEN YEARS LATER, SHE IS PETITIONING THE SUPREME COURT TO FORCE THE CITY TO RETURN HER GUNS. "IT'S NOT RIGHT. I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO DO THIS TO GET BACK WHAT'S MINE," RODRIGUEZ TOLD THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON. "THEY VIOLATED SEVERAL OF MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS." RODRIGUEZ CLAIMS POLICE ORDERED HER TO OPEN THE COUPLE'S GUN SAFE SO THEY COULD SEIZE ALL OF THE WEAPONS IN THE HOME AFTER HER HUSBAND WAS DETAINED FOR MAKING THREATS THAT THE CITY SAYS INCLUDED "SHOOTING UP SCHOOLS." COPS SEIZED NOT ONLY HER HUSBAND'S WEAPONS BUT ALSO THE GUNS THAT WERE PERSONALLY REGISTERED TO RODRIGUEZ. THE CITY HAS REPEATEDLY REBUFFED HER REQUESTS TO RETURN HER PROPERTY.

IL – GUN CRIME – 60 Shot, 9 Fatally, So Far This Weekend in Chicago

NINE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED, FOUR OF THEM MINORS, AND 51 OTHERS HAVE BEEN WOUNDED IN SHOOTINGS ACROSS CHICAGO SO FAR THIS WEEKEND. A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL WAS KILLED AND TWO OTHER TEENS WERE WOUNDED SATURDAY NIGHT IN AUSTIN ON THE WEST SIDE. SHE WAS TAKEN TO STROGER HOSPITAL, WHERE SHE WAS PRONOUNCED DEAD. TWO BOYS, 15 AND 16, WERE SITTING ON A PORCH WHEN ONE OF THEM NOTICED A RED LASER POINTING AT HIM AND HEARD GUNFIRE, POLICE SAID. THE YOUNGER BOY WAS STRUCK IN THE BACK AND THE OLDER BOY WAS STRUCK IN THE LEG. THEY WERE TAKEN TO MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL IN GOOD CONDITION. A 3-YEAR-OLD BOY WAS FATALLY WOUNDED ABOUT TWO HOURS EARLIER.

NAT’L – GUN CONTROL – Is Gun Control Dead? (VIDEO)

IN RECENT MONTHS, GOVERNMENTS RELEASED PRISONERS AND ANNOUNCED THAT SOME LAWS WOULDN’T BE ENFORCED BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS. NOW, WITH PROTESTS AGAINST POLICE MISBEHAVIOR, WE’RE SEEING GOVERNMENTS FAIL TO MAINTAIN LAW AND ORDER. BUT DOES THIS MEAN POLITICIANS WILL BE MORE SUPPORTIVE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT? THE ANSWER — AT LEAST FOR ANYONE WITH AN IQ ABOVE ROOM TEMPERATURE — SHOULD BE YES. FROM AN ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVE, ONE MAJOR GOAL IS TO CHANGE THE COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS FOR CRIMINALS. IF BAD GUYS HAVE TO WORRY THAT GOOD GUYS MAY BE ARMED, THAT SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASES THE POTENTIAL COST OF ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR.

MN – GUN CRIME – Community organizations call for peace after violent Sunday in Minneapolis (VIDEO)

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE ARE STILL INVESTIGATING THE MOTIVE BEHIND A MASS SHOOTING THAT INJURED 11 PEOPLE IN THE CITY’S UPTOWN NEIGHBORHOOD EARLY SUNDAY MORNING. ONE PERSON WAS ALSO KILLED. THE SHOOTING STARTED SUDDENLY, ACCORDING TO COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO ARE ON THE GROUND THERE WORKING TO PREVENT VIOLENCE. “THERE WERE NO FIGHTS, NO CONFRONTATIONS, NOTHING WAS GOING ON OTHER THAN YOUNG PEOPLE HAVING A GOOD TIME THEN ALL THE SUDDEN GUNPLAY STARTED AND THAT WAS WHEN THE CHAOS BEGAN,” SAID VJ SMITH, THE NATIONAL PRESIDENT OF MAD DADS, A CRIME PREVENTION AND YOUTH DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION.

VA – SELF-PROTECTION – Racial justice advocates arm themselves to keep the peace at Robert E. Lee statue

A .45-CALIBER HANDGUN WAS TUCKED IN THE WAISTBAND OF JASMINE KELLEY’S SHORTS SUNDAY NIGHT AS SHE STOOD OUTSIDE THE ROBERT E. LEE STATUE ON MONUMENT AVENUE. SHE PURCHASED IT FOR ABOUT $475 LAST WEEK, AND IT HASN’T BEEN FIRED YET. AS THE PROTESTS AGAINST RACIAL PREJUDICE BEGAN THREE WEEKS AGO, KELLEY, 29, QUICKLY DECIDED HER ROLE WOULD BE TO PROTECT OTHERS. SHE STARTED BY CALLING OTHER PROTESTERS TO CHECK ON THEIR SAFETY. THEN, THEY WERE GIVEN WALKIE-TALKIES SO THEY COULD COMMUNICATE FASTER. THEN, OTHER PROTESTERS STARTED SHOWING UP WITH GUNS IN AN EFFORT TO PROTECT OTHERS. NOW, AS GROUPS ASSEMBLE AROUND THE LEE STATUE EVERY DAY IN WHAT HAS BECOME A CAMPGROUND-LIKE ENVIRONMENT, A LOOSELY ORGANIZED GROUP OF MEN AND WOMEN WITH HANDGUNS AND RIFLES PATROL THE AREA, INTENT ON KEEPING VISITORS SAFE.

CA – LE – Police Kneeled With Me, Then They Drew Their Guns

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, THE TV NEWS HAS SHOWN FOOTAGE OF POLICE KNEELING, HUGGING AND MARCHING WITH DEMONSTRATORS AGAINST POLICE VIOLENCE. UNFORTUNATELY, POLICE OFTEN BEHAVE FAR DIFFERENTLY ONCE THE CAMERAS ARE OFF. I SAW THIS FIRSTHAND WHEN I WAS ARRESTED FOR PEACEFULLY PROTESTING IN DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES. ON JUNE 2, SOON AFTER MAYOR ERIC GARCETTI TOOK A KNEE WITH PROTESTERS OUTSIDE CITY HALL, I WAS HELD AT GUNPOINT, ARRESTED AND SUBJECTED TO ABUSE BY THE LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT.

NAT’L – SELF-PROTECTION – The Riots and Protests Will Make Gun Ownership More Popular

NOT IN A MILLION YEARS, NOT IF ALL THE NATION’S PRESTIGIOUS PUBLIC-RELATIONS FIRMS WERE MOBILIZED FOR THE CAUSE, COULD GUN MANUFACTURERS HAVE CONCEIVED OF A MORE EFFECTIVE ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN FOR THEIR PRODUCT THAN THE “DEFUND THE POLICE” MOVEMENT. OF COURSE, REALIZING THAT A FLAGRANTLY ANTI-COP MESSAGE MIGHT NOT SIT WELL WITH A PUBLIC STILL SWEEPING UP SHARDS OF GLASS LEFT BY RIOTERS IN CITY CENTERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, DEMOCRATS AND THEIR MEDIA ALLIES MOVED QUICKLY TO TEMPER THE MOVEMENT’S MESSAGE. BUT WHATEVER “DEFUND THE POLICE” ENDS UP MEANING IN PRACTICE, IT HIGHLIGHTS A GAPING DISCONNECT BETWEEN THE LEFT’S ANTI-COP RHETORIC AND THEIR ANTI-GUN RHETORIC ABOUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT.

WA – SELF-PROTECTION – Washougal gun shop draws criticism for response to Black Lives Matter march

A WASHOUGAL GUN SHOP RECEIVED SCATHING ONLINE CRITICISM AND NEGATIVE REVIEWS AFTER SEVERAL PEOPLE WERE SPOTTED WIELDING GUNS AND DONNING PROTECTIVE GEAR IN FRONT AND ON TOP OF THE LIMITLESS AMERICA STORE ON SUNDAY, JUNE 6, WHILE A PEACEFUL BLACK LIVES MATTER PROTEST CALLING OUT SYSTEMIC RACISM AND POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST PEOPLE OF COLOR MARCHED NEARBY. “I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE A PHOTOGRAPH OF THE ACTIVITIES AT THE LIMITLESS AMERICA GUN SHOP DURING YESTERDAY’S PEACEFUL MARCH OF WASHOUGAL CITIZENS SUPPORTING RACIAL JUSTICE,” WASHOUGAL RESIDENT JIM COOPER SAID DURING A CITY COUNCIL MEETING ON MONDAY, JUNE 8. “THE MARCH CONSISTED OF A CROSS-SECTION OF THE WASHOUGAL COMMUNITY, AND INCLUDED MOSTLY CHILDREN AND YOUNG FAMILIES. I’M REALLY STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND HOW AND WHY OUR WASHOUGAL POLICE DEPARTMENT ALLOWED THIS GUN SHOP TO ESTABLISH A ROOFTOP SNIPERS’ NEST ALONG A PUBLIC PARADE ROUTE.”

VA – TRAINING – Colonial Heights gun range to Black Lives Matter: ‘You’re not welcome here’ (VIDEO)

THERE ARE STRONG SENTIMENTS AFTER A COLONIAL HEIGHTS BUSINESS POSTED A SIGN IN ITS STORE SAYING IF YOU’RE ASSOCIATED WITH BLACK LIVES MATTER, “YOU’RE NOT WELCOME HERE.” THE COMPANY RECEIVED A HUGE AMOUNT OF BACKLASH IN JUST A MATTER OF HOURS. THE STORE’S CUSTOMERS SAID THEY LOVE GOING TO THE SMOKING GUN, SAYING THE STAFF IS FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL. IT’S WHY SO MANY WERE TAKEN OFF GUARD BY A SIGN THAT LEFT THEM HURT. “WHERE YOU GO TO PAY, IT’S RIGHT THERE. YOU CAN’T MISS IT,” JHOVAN GALBERTH SAID POINTING TO THE SIGN. “IF YOU ARE ANTI-POLICE, ANTI-MILITARY, ASSOCIATED WITH COP BLOCK, {OR} BLACK LIVES MATTER (BECAUSE ALL LIVES MATTER), STAY OFF OF MY RANGE. YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE.

NAT’L – RETAILERS – The Anti-Police Rioters Finally Got Me To Buy My First Gun

I BOUGHT A GUN LAST WEEKEND. IT’S NOT A PURCHASE I WANTED TO MAKE, AND I PRAY I NEVER HAVE TO USE IT, BUT WITH MAYHEM RECENTLY ENGULFING CITIES ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, I AND MANY OTHERS ARE BITING THE BULLET AND PURCHASING FIREARMS… SOMETHING SMALL ENOUGH TO FIT IN MY NIGHTSTAND OR UNDER MY DRIVER’S SEAT SHOULD I HAVE TO VISIT ONE OF AMERICA’S MANY WAR-TORN CITIES.

DC – OPINION – SCOTUS Gun Case Denials Signal Conservative Justices Don’t Trust Roberts With The Second Amendment

THE U.S. SUPREME COURT’S DECISION TO PASS ON NEARLY A DOZEN GUN-RIGHTS-RELATED CASES IS BREATHTAKING, NOT IN THE DENIAL OF HEARING ANY, BUT IN THE SEEMING ADMISSION THAT THE CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATE JUSTICES THINK CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS CAN’T BE TRUSTED TO PROTECT THE BILL OF RIGHTS. THE NATION’S TOP COURT DENIED WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO 10 CASES. THE NATIONAL SHOOTING SPORTS FOUNDATION, THE FIREARM INDUSTRY TRADE ASSOCIATION, SUBMITTED AMICUS CURIAE BRIEFS IN TWO OF THOSE CASES.

LA – SELF-PROTECTION – Governor signs bills limiting gun restrictions, expands concealed carry in churches

GOV. JOHN BEL EDWARDS HAS SIGNED BILLS INTO LAW THAT WILL LIMIT LOCAL GOVERNMENTS’ ABILITY TO ENACT GUN RESTRICTIONS AND EXPAND WORSHIPERS’ RIGHTS TO BRING CONCEALED GUNS INTO CHURCHES, SYNAGOGUES AND MOSQUES.

MIGUEZ’S LEGISLATION REMOVES RESTRICTIONS IN CITIES LIKE NEW ORLEANS, BATON ROUGE AND OTHER CITIES.
