BREAKING :
ALEXANDRA ANDERSON, A 26-YEAR-OLD MOTHER OF TWO YOUNG CHILDREN, NEVER CONSIDERED GETTING A CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT UNTIL LAST SPRING, WHEN UNREST AND VIOLENCE DOMINATED NEWS HEADLINES AND MADE HER FEEL UNEASY. HER FEARS BEGAN WHEN OGDEN, UTAH POLICE OFFICER NATE LYDAY WAS KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY. TWO DAYS LATER, WHAT BEGAN AS PEACEFUL PROTESTS IN DOWNTOWN SALT LAKE CITY CALLING FOR JUSTICE IN THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD IN MINNESOTA, TURNED VIOLENT. A SALT LAKE CITY POLICE CAR WAS OVERTURNED AND SET ON FIRE. THAT WAS HER TIPPING POINT. ANDERSON DECIDED TO ENROLL IN A CONCEALED CARRY COURSE.TO SAY THAT THE BIDEN-HARRIS GUN-CONTROL LIST IS “COMPREHENSIVE” WOULD BE A DRAMATIC UNDERSTATEMENT. RATHER, IT REPRESENTS A VERITABLE INVENTORY OF EVERY MAJOR GUN-CONTROL MEASURE THAT HAS BEEN PROPOSED DURING THE LAST 30 YEARS. GIVEN THAT BOTH JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS ARE ON THE RECORD SUPPORTING THE CONFISCATION OF AR-15-TYPE RIFLES—WHEN ASKED DURING A 2019 TELEVISION INTERVIEW WHETHER HE HOPED TO CONFISCATE AR-15S, BIDEN SAID “BINGO”.IN A RECORD YEAR OF GUN SALES, MANY HAVE BEEN BOUGHT BY FIRST-TIME GUN OWNERS, ACCORDING TO STORE OWNERS AND BACKGROUND CHECK STATISTICS. THE FBI HAS REPORTED MORE BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR GUN BUYERS THIS YEAR THAN DURING ANY YEAR SINCE TRACKING BEGAN IN 1998. TEXAS GUN STORE OWNERS AND FIREARMS EXPERTS BELIEVE MOST OF THESE NEW CUSTOMERS HAVE LITTLE TRAINING ON HOW TO HANDLE, STORE AND USE THE WEAPONS. EAGLE GUN RANGE OWNER DAVID PRINCE SAID HIS SALES HAVE MORE THAN DOUBLED THIS YEAR COMPARED TO LAST. AND MANY OF HIS CUSTOMERS HAVE TOLD HIM THEY ARE NEW, FIRST-TIME GUN OWNERS. A SHORTAGE OF AMMUNITION COULD BE A PROBLEM FOR SOME HUNTERS AS DEER SEASON GETS UNDERWAY IN VERMONT SO SOME HUNTERS HAVE TURNED TO A NEW OPTION; BOW HUNTING. "WE ACTUALLY RAN OUT [OF ARROWS] FOR A LITTLE WHILE. WE FINALLY MANAGED TO GET THEM BACK IN, BUT AGAIN, IT TOOK ALMOST A MONTH TO GET AN ORDER IN THAT SHOULD HAVE COME IN WITHIN FIVE DAYS,” SAID ARCHERY DEPT. MANAGER JON SANBORN.IF YOU’RE NEW TO HUNTING, OR HAVE BEEN BUT WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT IT, THERE’S AN OPPORTUNITY THIS WEEKEND IN SOUTH DAKOTA. ON SUNDAY, THE PHEASANTS FOREVER 2020 APPRENTICE HUNT WILL START AT 8 A.M., AND GO UNTIL LATE AFTERNOON. THE EVENT, WHICH IS FREE OF CHARGE, IS OPEN TO ANYONE OVER THE AGE OF 18. TO REGISTER, CALL 605-290-0109.

NAT’L – SELF-PROTECTION – Breonna Taylor decision shows police have an unequal right to self-defense

I was 35 years old when I was invited to a gun range. Every time I pulled the trigger, I found myself jumping and becoming emotional. With every shot, I felt the life of another Black man being taken. That day, I decided I didn’t want to have anything to do with guns. Fast-forward 15 years. I’m sitting in my condo on Chicago’s South Side when the doorbell rings. It’s the pizza delivery man. I buzz him into the building. Within seconds, I hear a commotion and someone yelling, “Don’t shoot!” I quickly lock my door and look out the peephole. A thief is trying to rob the pizza delivery guy, who’s knocking at my door saying: “Please let me in! Let me in!!” I run to my office, grab a bat and let him in. The robber flees. As I stood with the bat in hand, nervously shaking, my fear turned to anger. At that moment, I decided I would never be afraid again in my own home. I did a 180, enrolled in a firearms training class and even graduated from the FBI Citizens Academy. I trained on 9 mms, 40 mms, 45 mms, Remington tactical pump-action shotguns, AR-15s and more. I am now a licensed concealed carry weapon owner in 38 states. As such, I have some level of protection from robbers — but I am more exposed to other dangers. When I first got my concealed carry license in Chicago, soon after the law to do so was passed, a law enforcement officer with the Chicago Police Department told me, “If CPD sees you with a gun, they will shoot you.” Why? I am legally carrying a gun, but that could get me shot? How is that possible?  [full article]
