What caliber for clown? Some Florida parents plan to arm themselves while going trick-or-treating over clown concerns – “Kimberly Kersey told Florida Today that she plans to carry a gun while taking her sons around her Palm Bay neighborhood after two men were arrested last week for allegedly threatening people while dressed as clowns. ‘I’ll be carrying for sure, I’m not leaving to chance,’ she said. ‘I’m terrified of clowns already and if one messes with me or my kids it’ll be to the hospital or morgue they go.’”
Cops: Pizza Hut employee shot, killed armed robber with own handgun – “Charlotte police say a pizza restaurant employee used his own handgun to shoot and kill one of three armed robbers holding up the store. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said it happened early Sunday at a Pizza Hut restaurant near Interstate 85 in west Charlotte. Detectives say the restaurant was closed and there were no customers inside.
Police say their initial investigation indicates three people entered the restaurant around 1:40 a.m. Sunday and were in the process of robbing it when one of the employees used his personal handgun to shoot one male thief.” Anyone want to hire a soon-to-be-terminated Pizza Hut employee?
This is either a mistake in transcribing the quote or one of the best Kinsley gaffes in the history of the world ever: Gun Control Measure Divides California’s Politicians, Law Enforcement – “’We see this as a continued erosion of what we believe are Second Amendment rights,’ Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood, president of the California State Sheriffs’ Association, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. ‘California has the strictest gun laws now and they have no impact on crime because senators aren’t going to follow the law.’”
El Paso…where nothing happening constitutes news: No gun related incidents reported at UTEP since SB11 went into effect – “Not just anyone can carry guns at UTEP. You have to be 21, with a license to carry, and that gun must be concealed. You should never be able to see it, but qualified students and teachers have been able to carry concealed weapons legally for more than two months. Whether you feel safer, or less safe about guns in the classroom, UTEP’s Campus Carry law got off to a quiet start. Every student KFOX14 talked to on Monday said it has not been an issue.”

Every upper west side wife’s greatest fear: Husbands With Guns – “My husband was a person who felt safer with loaded guns in the house, and I was a person who felt safer without loaded guns in the house. It was becoming clear to me that only one of us was going to be able to feel safe. Unfortunately for me, I had agreed to the guns years before, when I was young. I was in love, and I didn’t yet know the way that distrust could insinuate itself into a marriage.”
Ga. Supreme Court: Guns not allowed at school functions – “The ruling came in a challenge the gun rights group GeorgiaCarry.org brought after the governor signed two conflicting bills passed by the 2014 Legislature. On April 22, 2014, Gov. Nathan Deal signed House Bill 826, which allowed licensed gun owners to bring their weapons onto school property. The next day Deal signed House Bill 60, which said the only time guns are allowed on school property is when someone is dropping off or picking up a student; otherwise guns on school property was specifically prohibited.”
Where is the NRA while California moves toward ammunition control? – “But despite being a favorite boogeyman of California liberals, the NRA is actually a relatively minor political player in the Golden State, where the voice of gun rights has traditionally been represented by state groups like Gun Owners of California. The NRA has contributed just $95,000 to the campaign against Proposition 63, a mere fraction of the nearly $5 million it has poured into neighboring Nevada to fight a background check proposal.” Have they written off the Golden State as a lost cause and directed their funds toward other, more promising fights?
