A state lawmaker, Representative Mack Butler (R-Rainbow City), has pre-filed a bill for the upcoming legislative session that would ensure the right of college students who obtain a concealed carry permit to conceal a pistol while at school. More common-sense gun control here…
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.
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
When politicians question the “need” for anyone to own any particular firearm or ammunition, consider the words of forefather Madison. The Second Amendment was never meant to protect our hunting heritage; rather, it was put in place to protect our liberties from tyrannical government.
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
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
A South Carolina teen, who was home alone, used his mother’s gun to take out a couple of scum bags trying to gain entrance into his home. Details here…
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.
