California City Pays NSSF Legal Fees In Ordinance Lawsuit Settlement

NEWTOWN, Conn. – The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) announced today that it and co-plaintiff City Arms East, LLC have reached an agreement with the City of Pleasant Hill, California, to end a lawsuit challenging a 2013 ordinance that sought to impose burdensome and unlawful firearms and ammunition sales restrictions on local firearms retailers.

As a result of the settlement approved by the city council on Monday night, the City of Pleasant Hill will pay $400,000 to cover legal fees incurred by NSSF and City Arms in bringing the suit.

“We were successful in our goal to protect the ability of federally-licensed firearms retailers to open, operate and grow their businesses in the City of Pleasant Hill,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel. “As we predicted when the city council made its unfortunate decision to go forward with an ordinance, which only put into place duplicative, unneeded regulation and did nothing to enhance public safety, it was very likely that taxpayers would be left paying the tab for what amounts to an unwarranted political decision to target law-abiding businesses.” Read more

Michigan CO’s Nab Suspect Wanted in Two States

Michigan man returned to Ohio

Conservation officers from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Law Enforcement Division arrested a fugitive Monday who led officers on a lengthy vehicle and foot pursuit through Hillsdale and Lenawee counties.

Randon Goebel, 21, of Waldron, Michigan was wanted in Ohio after failing to appear for sentencing on a felony abduction charge and violation of a personal protection order. He also had four bench warrants issued in Michigan for failing to appear in court.

The story of Goebel’s apprehension began around noon Monday.

DNR conservation officer Carter Woodwyk, who is assigned to Hillsdale County, was investigating a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot at the Lost Nations State Game Area.

Woodwyk stopped the Dodge Durango after it pulled out of the parking lot onto a road. The officer approached the vehicle and asked Goebel for his identification. Goebel complied with the request.

While Woodwyk was checking for outstanding warrants in the state’s Law Enforcement Information Network, Goebel fled in his vehicle.

Woodwyk pursued Goebel, ultimately traveling into Lenawee County, where Goebel abandoned his sport-utility vehicle and fled on foot near the Michigan-Ohio border.

Conservation officers Chris Reynolds of Hillsdale County and Eric Smither of Lenawee County responded during the chase.

They assisted with maintaining a perimeter and accompanying a K-9 unit from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio tracking Goebel at the scene. Officers from numerous other agencies assisted in the pursuit.

Goebel was found hiding in a cornfield. He surrendered without incident. Read more

Groups Sue NY Gov and State Over Taser and Nonlethal Weapons

ALBANY, NY and SACRAMENTO, CA (December 6, 2016) — Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC), Firearms Policy Foundation (FPF), and New York resident Matthew Avitabile have filed a federal Second Amendment civil rights lawsuit against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in an effort to strike down the state’s ban on the acquisition and possession of Tasers and other nonlethal (sometimes called “less-than-lethal”) weapons.

Individual plaintiff Matthew Avitabile is the mayor of Middleburgh, New York and would like to buy and keep a Taser for self-defense. But New York Penal Law § 265.01 states that “A person is guilty of criminal possession of a weapon” if “He or she possesses any….electronic dart gun” or “electronic stun gun,” making the crime punishable as a misdemeanor.

The complaint states that, “Given the [United States Supreme Court] decision in Heller, Defendants may not completely ban the keeping and bearing of arms for self-defense” or “impose regulations on the right to keep and carry arms that are inconsistent with the Second Amendment.” Read more

Concealed Carry Permit Numbers Up

The election of Donald Trump, endorsed by the National Rifle Association and cheered by gun owners who were skittish over Hillary Clinton, has sparked an aggressive new effort to force liberal states to take down their barriers to concealed carry permits and gun ownership, reports the Washington Examiner.

National gun groups — such as the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the Second Amendment Foundation and the U.S. Concealed Carry Association — are eyeing legal challenges to some 10 states that make it difficult for citizens to get a carry permit.

The emerging fight was sparked by Trump’s surprise victory over gun control advocate Clinton and increased concerns among Americans, especially women and millennials, about crime and terrorism.

“It’s pure self-defense that’s driving many,” said Tim Schmidt, president of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association, based in Wisconsin. “They see these terrorist attacks, and they put themselves in the shoes of those being targeted.” Read more
