[edit] National Rifle Association

Clerk defends himself from armed robbers, KBOB, Albuquerque, N.M. 10/21/14

A pair of armed robbers entered the Pajarito Corner Store in Albuquerque, N.M., and demanded cash. As the pair were leaving, the clerk went to lock the store’s door, at which point one of the criminals leveled a gun at him. The clerk responded by firing at the robbers, striking one and causing both to flee.

The thieves fled in a vehicle, but were involved in an accident. Police caught up with the criminals, finding one dead and arranging for the other to be taken to a hospital. The surviving robber will be charged with murder in the death of his accomplice.

Va. Beach OK's gun agenda item, triggering dissent

The city's legislative agenda isn't normally all that controversial for residents. But an item about guns this year has gotten people talking.The proposal asks the General Assembly to consider requiring gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms.

Tennessee: Residents petition for Farragut guns in parks ban to be lifted

Another effort to repeal Farragut's ban on guns in parks is underway. A change in state law in 2009 allowed handgun permit holders to carry their weapons into parks, but local governments could opt out. That's what Farragut decided to do and they've stuck with it when the issue came up again last year.

Pennsylvania: 2014 Legislative Session Ends With Victory

After four years of effort, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives finally passed critical firearms preemption legislation.  Yesterday, the state House voted to concur on the Senate amendments to House Bill 80 by an overwhelming 138 to 56 vote.  HB 80, when signed into law, will strengthen the state firearms preemption statute to further ensure that firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout Pennsylvania.

Washington: Majority of Washington State Sheriffs Oppose I-594

A majority of Washington State’s 39 sheriffs have come out in opposition to anti-gun Washington State Ballot Initiative 594.  The sheriffs oppose I-594 because it will not make anyone safer, will strain scarce law enforcement resources, will criminalize the lawful behavior of millions of law-abiding gun owners in Washington and will be unenforceable.  Instead, I-594 would vastly expand the state’s handgun registry and force law-abiding gun owners to pay fees and get the government’s permission to sell or even loan a firearm to a friend or family member.

NRA-backed bill clears Pa. legislature; Corbett indicates he'll sign it

In the final minutes of the legislative session, the House on Monday approved a bill clearing the way for the National Rifle Association and other groups to sue local municipalities, among them Philadelphia, that enact ordinances stricter than state firearms laws.

How gun-control legislation is affecting this election

Many sheriffs in states that recently passed gun-control laws have signed letters saying they are opposed to the laws, saying the gun bans won’t make America safer. Some even say they won’t enforce these new laws. This has gotten some press. What hasn’t been reported is the very governors in New York, Connecticut and Maryland who signed those gun and magazine bans are also reluctant to enforce these laws. It seems they don’t want a political backlash. They don’t want journalists making martyrs out of otherwise law-abiding citizens who might be charged with felonies for doing what they’ve done all their lives. This is where politics runs into reality. It’s a collision voters need to hear more about.
