BREAKING :
NORTHWELL HEALTH, THE LARGEST HEALTH SYSTEM AND LARGEST PRIVATE EMPLOYER IN NEW YORK STATE, HAS ANNOUNCED A RESEARCH STUDY CALLED, BIZARRELY, “WE ASK EVERYONE. FIREARM SAFETY IS A HEALTH ISSUE.” THE PROJECT WILL REQUIRE, AS PART OF ROUTINE SCREENING OF EMERGENCY ROOM PATIENTS, ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT FIREARM OWNERSHIP AND GUNS IN THE HOME. IMPLEMENTATION WILL BEGIN AT THREE NORTHWELL HOSPITALS INITIALLY (TWO ON LONG ISLAND AND ONE ON STATEN ISLAND), WITH PLANS TO EXPAND THE PROGRAM TO INCLUDE “INPATIENT AND AMBULATORY SETTINGS” ACROSS ALL OF ITS FACILITIES.PENNSYLVANIA GOVERNOR TOM WOLF (D-PA.) VETOED TWO GUN BILLS THAT WOULD REPEAL LAWS INTENDED TO CONTROL THE CARRYING OF GUNS AND PREVENT PUBLIC OFFICIALS FROM SHUTTING DOWN FIREARMS SALES DURING EMERGENCY PROCLAMATIONS. THE BILLS, WHICH RECENTLY PASSED THE REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED PENNSYLVANIA STATE SENATE, INTENDED TO LIMIT WOLF'S POWERS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND MOVING FORWARD, AP NEWS REPORTED. WOLF, A DEMOCRAT WHO SUPPORTS BROADER GUN CONTROL MEASURES, HAS PREVIOUSLY VETOED MORE THAN SIX SUCH BILLS.JUSTICE AMY CONEY BARRETT IS JUST STARTING TO MAKE HER MARK AT THE SUPREME COURT. ON WEDNESDAY, HER VOTE FLIPPED THE COURT’S APPROACH TO RESTRICTIONS ON ATTENDANCE AT RELIGIOUS SERVICES DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC. WHILE JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG WAS ALIVE, THE COURT HAD ALLOWED SUCH LIMITS, IN CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA, BY 5 TO 4 VOTES. AFTER JUSTICE BARRETT SUCCEEDED HER, SHE JOINED THE COURT’S FOUR MOST CONSERVATIVE JUSTICES TO STRIKE DOWN RESTRICTIONS IN NEW YORK. THOSE SAME FOUR JUSTICES ARE NOW ON HIGH ALERT FOR A PROMISING CASE IN WHICH TO EXPAND SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.WOLVES’ RETURN TO THE GREATER YELLOWSTONE ECOSYSTEM A QUARTER CENTURY AGO HAS BEEN THE PRIMARY FORCE SUPPRESSING LOCAL MOUNTAIN LION POPULATIONS, A NEW STUDY HAS CONCLUDED. THAT HYPOTHESIS WAS TESTED AND CONFIRMED USING DATA AMASSED OVER THE 16 YEARS THAT THE TETON COUGAR PROJECT TRACKED 147 CATS ON THE EAST SIDE OF JACKSON HOLE. IT WAS ALREADY KNOWN THAT LION NUMBERS IN THIS AREA FELL BY HALF DURING THE STUDY PERIOD, WHICH COINCIDED WITH WOLVES REOCCUPYING THE LANDSCAPE.JOE BIDEN’S GUN-CONTROL PLANS HAVE ABOUT ZERO CHANCE OF GETTING THROUGH CONGRESS, ESPECIALLY IF REPUBLICANS WIN AT LEAST ONE OF THE GEORGIA RUNOFFS. THAT’S GOOD, BECAUSE HIS BRIGHT IDEA FOR RESTRICTING “ASSAULT WEAPONS” WOULD FORCE AMERICA’S GUN OWNERS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN (A) GIVING UP MILLIONS OF THEIR FIREARMS AND MAGAZINES TO A FEDERAL “BUYBACK” AND (B) REGISTERING THOSE GUNS WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, PAYING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN TAXES FOR THE PRIVILEGE.

MO – HOME DEFENSE – What the ‘Castle Doctrine’ means in Missouri (VIDEOS)

As the story of a Central West End couple who pointed guns at protesters as they marched through their neighborhood Sunday continues to stir emotion and make national headlines, the discussion over the legality of their actions is front and center. Videos from the protest showed the man holding a semi-automatic rifle and a woman pointing a pistol at the crowd marching down the street. The videos circulated widely on social media Sunday night. The couple has been identified as Mark and Patricia McCloskey. Both are attorneys who have defended their actions, saying they felt threatened by the “mob” that broke through the gate to their property and refused to leave. “The only thing that stopped the crowd was my rifle,” Mark McCloskey told 5 On Your Side. But according to Saint Louis University Lawyer John Amman, the couple’s actions could possibly be classified as an assault by putting protesters in fear of their safety. On January 1, 2017, new rules for gun-owners in Missouri went into effect. One of the changes was the expansion of the state’s Castle Doctrine which created a stand-your-ground right. The Castle Doctrine is a common law doctrine that allows residents to use deadly force against anyone, based on the notion that their home is “their castle.” Basically, if an intruder violates the sanctity of your home, and you believe they intend to do you harm, you should be able to protect yourself or others against an attack. According to Findlaw.com, Missouri’s law is more extensive than those of other states because it allows you to use deadly force to attack an intruder to protect any private property that you own, in addition to yourself or another individual. This means that if someone illegally enters your front porch or backyard, you can use deadly force against them without retreating first.  [full article]
