Marine Vet With Concealed-Carry Permit Saves Texas Deputy’s Life



A Texas deputy says a Marine veteran with a concealed-carry firearm saved his life earlier this month.

On January 19, Bastrop County Deputy Dylan Dorris attempted to pull over a motorist who was driving erratically.

The driver did not comply initially, but he eventually stopped at a gas station.

Once the vehicle was stopped, Dorris attempted to arrest the driver, but he resisted. While Dorris was struggling with the driver, the man allegedly reached for the deputy’s weapon.

That’s when Marine veteran and concealed-carry permit holder Scott Perkins jumped into action.

California law allowing seizure of guns without notice begins Jan. 1

Gun control legislation going into effect in California tomorrow will allow authorities to seize a person’s weapons for 21 days, if a judge determines there is potential for violence. 

GW:  My take on this relates to the large number of liberal judges who would take away anyone’s guns regardless of the reason(s) to satisfy their own agenda and that of the misguided left-leaning crowd.  They are definitely out there – way out there, for that matter and some are chomping at the bit to flex their muscle.

Details of the subjective approach to another means of gun control are here in the bill’s text.

NYT/CBS Poll Shows Majority Rejects Gun Prohibition Agenda

BELLEVUE, WA – Last week’s New York Times/CBS News poll that found more people reject the notion of banning so-called “assault weapons” shows that a majority of Americans are now rejecting the anti-gun agenda, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.

“This New York Times/CBS poll proves that Americans reject the gun prohibition agenda of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the liberal media,” SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb said. “Apparently anti-gunners haven’t noticed the lines of people at gun shops and gun shows, and they refuse to acknowledge all of the new applications for concealed carry licenses and permits around the country.”

The poll showed that for the first time ever, a majority opposes a ban on semi-auto firearms. Read more

CCRKBA Blasts Florida Sheriff Over Remarks About Armed Citizens

BELLEVUE, WA – Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri should apologize and walk back his unconscionable remarks about how legally-armed citizens would be “thrown down on the ground with a gun pointed at them” at a crime scene, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“We are simply astonished at the abrasive attitude reflected by Sheriff Gualtieri’s comments,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “The sheriff has opposed open carry legislation, which the Florida Police Chiefs Association supports, but threatening lawfully-armed private citizens with physical abuse because they might have the misfortune to end up in the middle of an armed robbery or some other felony crime is unconscionable.

“If this guy can’t tell the difference between an armed law-abiding citizen and some criminal,” he added, “maybe he ought to pursue a different career. We know of hundreds of lawmen and women who have encountered armed citizens at crime scenes, and this is the first time we’ve ever heard of a sheriff whose first thought is to throw someone to the ground at gunpoint.”

Sheriff Gualtieri was quoted by the News Service of Florida yesterday, asserting that if an officer arrives at a crime scene and encounters an armed citizen, “At a minimum, they’re going to be thrown down on the ground with a gun pointed at them – or worse.” Read more

Ohio House Passes Bill to Eliminate “No Gun” Victim Zones

COLUMBUS, OH – Sub. HB 48, sponsored by Ron Maag (R-Lebanon), passed the Ohio House of Representatives today with a 63-25 vote. The bill is now headed to the Senate for further consideration.

HB 48 makes several critical changes to Ohio firearms laws.

Currently it is against the law to possess a firearm on school property. There is an exemption for Concealed Handgun License (CHL) holders “immediately in the process of picking up or dropping off a child,” provided the license-holder remains in the vehicle. But drop off a spouse (not a “child”) for work, or your kids lunch/medicine/science project, and parents are subject to felony penalties. Parents with a CHL are prohibited from leaving the vehicle as may be required to sign a child out of the office or nurses’ station.

HB 48 would fix this by simply stating that the gun, as opposed to the license-holder, must remain in the vehicle. It fixes a problem with which license-holders, schools, law enforcement and prosecutors have had issues. Such a simple and commonsense fix should enjoy unanimous support. Read more

Bill That Eliminates “No-Gun” Victim Zones Scheduled for Ohio House Floor Vote

COLUMBUS, OH – Substitute House Bill 48 sponsored by Ron Maag (R-Lebanon), is scheduled for a vote by the full House on Tuesday, November 17, 2015.

The bill, which passed out of the House State Government Committee back in June by a 9-2 vote, seeks to restore Ohioans’ right to carry in day care facilities (unless they post “no-guns”), private airplanes, school safety zones, and in non-secure areas of police stations and airports.

The substitute bill also contains “opt-in” language which would to allow authorities governing college campuses and certain government buildings the ability to allow concealed carry. Read more

Expansion of Michigan CPL to Pistol Free Zones

Recently, Senator Green introduced a different bill, SB 442, which is co-sponsored by MCRGO Board Members, Senators Meekhoff and Casperson .

Link: You can find it here.

SB 442 would allow for any CPL holder to request an exemption from the “Pistol Free Areas.” There would be no fee if the request is made at initial licensing, or upon renewal. If the request is made during the term of a CPL license, there would be a fee up to $20 for the issuance of a new license. This bill has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Hearings have not been held yet. In other words, it is early in the legislative process. No vote has been taken as of the date of writing this article.
