Pressure building on Trump to act on guns (VIDEO)

ABC NEWS February 21, 2018 – President Donald Trump is vowing to “move past clichés and tired debates” surrounding guns. With that, he kicks off … a “listening session” at the White House. When Trump convenes stakeholders and victims of gun violence today, the pressure will be building for action by a president who claims to like to act. Signs abound suggesting that skepticism is warranted. The president spent part of his…

The Ban Plays On

GUNPROPLUS.COM February 21, 2018 – Does anyone even remember the 10-year Federal Assault Weapons Ban? It ran from 1994-2004 and made no measurable difference to crime at all. I’ve got an idea for another 10-year ban. One that will probably do a lot more to reduce gun violence—particularly high-profile mass shootings—than any “assault weapons” ban ever could. I propose a Federal Gun Violence Discussion Ban.  [full…

Nat’l – Opinion – AT ISSUE – How to win the gun debate: Stop talking about guns

THE WEEK.COM February 21, 2018 – Forget guns. It’s time for liberals to recast America’s mass killings as a crime problem. And it’s time to cast politicians who sit on their hands in the face of such massacres — Trump chief among them — as soft on crime.

COLUMBUS DISPATCH February 20, 2018 – In the wake of the shooting deaths of 17 students and teachers at a Florida high school, a pair of Ohio Senate Democrats introduced a bill to ban the possession of assault-style rifles and require the registration of gun purchases in Ohio. 

CA – Gun News – Anti-gun laws force cancellation of Revolutionary War reenactment in California

FOX NEWS February 20, 2018 – Revolutionary War reenactors are accustomed to not firing until they see the whites of their enemy’s eyes. But in California, they may soon need to learn not to fire at all. Park officials in Elk Grove, just south of Sacramento, have forced a historical society to abruptly cancel a long-planned, two-day Revolutionary War reenactment, citing local anti-gun laws, the Elk Grove Citizen reported. 

NV – Opinion – Being a shooting victim doesn’t make you an expert on ending gun violence (VIDEO)

LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL February 20, 2018 – Being a shooting victim doesn’t make you an expert on ending gun violence. But you wouldn’t know that from watching CNN. It’s been a week since a monster killed 17 people at a Florida high school. The calls for gun control have been reflexive and ambiguous, but the media have found a new mouthpiece — shooting survivors. 

KY – Self-Protection – Kentucky Moves To Add Guns To Schools After School Shooting

NPR.ORG February 20, 2018 – In the wake of the tragedy at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky’s Republican governor and legislature say they won’t consider gun any control proposals. Rather, a measure allowing teachers or staff to carry guns on campus has gained traction. Republican state Sen.

WI – Self-Protection – Wisconsin attorney general open to allowing guns in schools

The remarks came six days after a shooting left 17 dead at a high school in Florida. Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said he would be open to a discussion about allowing guns in schools, but that doesn’t mean a bill will get…

DC – Politics – Fix NICS Act must pass to strengthen background check system for gun buyers

WJLA.COM February 20, 2018 – Fix NICS was passed in the House of Representatives late last year. It was merged with legislation enhancing concealed carry rights throughout the country. That combination is not likely to pass in the Senate. However, Fix NICS on its own has broad bipartisan support in the Senate, with both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer getting behind the bill,…

DC – Gun Control – Trump pushes ban on ‘bump stocks’ — devices that turn weapons into ‘machine guns’

CNBC.COM February 20, 2018 – President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he has recommended that “bump stocks” — devices that let semi-automatic weapons fire hundreds of rounds per minute — be banned. The proposed regulators would first have to be published in the Federal Register and be subject to public comment before they could be adopted. 

I’ve been shot in combat. And as a veteran, I’m telling you: allowing teachers to be armed is an asinine idea

CHARLOTTE FIVE.COM February 20, 2018 – Defending children is a must, but putting a firearm in the hands of even the most trained teacher isn’t the answer. Anyone suggesting this solution has clearly never experienced a situation like the one seen in Parkland because it oversimplifies the complexity of an active shooter situation, especially in close-quarters. It is not as easy as a “good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with…

Nat’l – Gun Control – Will more young people support gun control after Parkland? Recent history suggests no.

CNN.COM February 20, 2018 – In the aftermath of the shooting in Parkland, Florida last week, some of the student survivors are calling on Congress to pass legislation that would address gun violence in schools. Their public calls raise an interesting question: Will there be a significant shift among the younger generation of today in favor of stricter regulation on guns? 

Nat’l – Opinion – Florida school massacre won’t change our gun laws, but bridging our divides might work

USA TODAY February 20, 2018 – A different approach is needed to enact new national gun laws. We have to jettison the idea that the next gun horror will tip the scales toward action and instead bridge the divide at the heart of America’s split on guns — the divide between those who see guns primarily as a threat to their safety and those who see guns as a form…

Nat’l – Opinion – WATCH: NRATV’s Colion Noir Explains How to Stop School Shootings (VIDEO)

TOWNHALL.COM February 19, 2018 – In a new video, NRATV host Colion Noir is rather candid about how to prevent mass shootings, particularly at schools and colleges: 

FL – Gun Control – Mayors in Florida face fines of $5,000 if they enact stricter rules on gun control

TAMPA BAY TIMES February 19, 2018 – South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard may be one of the most liberal mayors in Florida, so he would be a natural candidate to push through a package of local gun-control rules in the wake of the Parkland massacre 50 miles away. But that would be against the law. Florida bans cities and counties from imposing their own gun-control rules. Seven years ago,…

FL – Feature – “Anybody Can Shoot an AR”: Florida Gun Owners Weigh Regulations After Parkland

THE NEW YORKER.COM February 19, 2018 – An unwelcome visitor who attempts to enter Tres Bullard’s home, half an hour south of Parkland, Florida, will encounter at least three obstacles: Bullard’s ninety-pound pit bull, Storm; his electronic alarm system; and his guns. Bullard, a forty-two-year-old business-development manager, who lives with his wife and their four-year-old son, describes himself as a “pretty libertarian-leaning person.” He keeps a loaded pistol beside his…

Nat’l – Self-Protection – Pollak: The One Gun Law that Might Work Is One that Democrats Will Not Allow

BREITBART.COM February 19, 2018 – The mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last week has caused shock and grief to the entire nation. The left is, as usual, demanding gun control — and it has enlisted several students from the school in its cause. So — what new gun laws or regulations would actually prevent mass shootings? There is one possibility, but the left will not allow…
