Gun Control Group Moves to Block Missouri’s Constitutional Carry – “The Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund and the Missouri chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, both funded in part by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, released an ad urging lawmakers to vote against the measure. The legislation would allow any adult who is legally allowed to possess a firearm to carry one on their person without first obtaining a state permit. It would also expand the state’s so-called “Stand Your Ground” protections to include public places.” Bloomberg doing what Bloomberg does…namely throwing his money at various states to sway votes and thwart firearms freedom. Meanwhile, in the “gun safety” paradise that is California . . .
Sammy Davis Jr.’s pistol is turned in at L.A. gun buyback program – “The Rat Pack member’s 1911 .45-caliber pistol was one of the weapons turned in for Ralphs grocery store gift cards during the events held in Mission Hills and South Los Angeles.” Another one bites the dust.
Guns are banned, but are Oklahoma lawmakers packing? – “‘I won’t name names, but I know for a fact that they (carry),’ said Rep. Sally Kern, a conservative Republican who says she doesn’t necessarily disapprove of lawmakers who carry guns at the Capitol. She said several colleagues have admitted to being armed. ‘I take my colleagues at their word.'” So while, as the story notes, even plenty of gun rights-supporting legislators want to keep the capitol a gun-free zone, they tote there with impunity. Laws for thee, but not for me.
UT Regents Delay Decision On Campus Guns – “Regents said they needed more time to consider proposals at the flagship campus in Austin that allow teachers to ban weapons from their offices, and prohibit keeping a bullet in the chamber of a semi-automatic weapon.” It seems some faculty members haven’t really gotten in line with the spirit of the new law. Closed minds can be hard to educate.
