    In a surprise, but lawful move, Lake County Circuit Court blocked an unconstitutional ban on alleged "assault weapons" and high capacity magazines with a temporary injunction in the small town of Deerfield, Illinois just hours before the ban was to go into effect. The 19th Judicial Circuit Court in Lake County, Illinois rendered the decision on Tuesday after gun owner rights activists sued the city after a ban that was unanimously passed by all six of the town's board members on April 2. Vice News reports: Gun groups, including the National Rifle Association of Illinois, requested a temporary restraining order...

    On Wednesday, the governor is expected to sign a package of bills approved by the Democrat-controlled Legislature — a few of which received wide support from Republicans. The following bills are sitting on Murphy’s desk: * A1217, which will create restraining orders in the state allowing family members and others to ask a judge to have a person’s guns seized and ban them from buying weapons for up to a year. * A1181, which will mandate law enforcement in the state to seize a person’s guns if a mental health professional determines they pose a threat to themselves. * A2758, which will strictly define that state residents need...

    Six new gun-control laws were enacted Wednesday, including smaller ammunition magazine limits and new "red flag" laws designed to take guns from people deemed dangerous. Though New Jersey has among the nation’s most restrictive gun-control systems, most Democrats have been pushing for years to enact more, particularly in response to school shootings. Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald, D-Camden, recalled a Statehouse meeting he had in April 2013 with Connecticut parents whose children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The cut in the maximum ammunition magazine, from 15 to 10 rounds, is one proposal that those parents emphasized. “We made...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WSVN) — Police say a man who tried to carjack two people was thwarted after the victims both pulled out guns to protect themselves. According to Fox 30, Jacksonville police officers arrested 36-year-old Christopher Raymond Hill, charging him with strong-arm robbery, carjacking with firearm or deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and trespassing. Detectives said the incident began when Hill robbed a Walmart liquor store, and attempted to flee in a silver Ford SUV. However, witnesses said the vehicle would not start, so he first tried to carjack Scott Reardean at knifepoint, cutting him on his...

    The future king of England looked down the barrel of the gun and played with his mother Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, pointing the gun at her face. He and his sister Princess Charlotte sat on the grass watching their father, Prince William, take part in Sunday’s Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy match at the Beaufort Polo Club. Critics accused the royal family of insensitivity given the recent spike in violence nationwide, which has included a number of knife attacks in London.

    When in doubt, the Dems go to Hollywood. That's where so much of their cash and cultural cachet comes from. The only problem with that plan is seriously thinking that Hollywood can help you connect with the rest of the country. DNC Chairman Tom Perez, several House members and other top elected officials have already met with the group, formed by members of the entertainment industry in the wake of the 2016 election, that participants liken to a TV writers’ room, complete with producers of such programs as “Veep.” Nothing like a widely popular program watched across the country to...

    The Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), a Washington-based think tank, on Friday released their Action Plan to Reduce Gun Violence following a Thursday meeting with the nation’s big-city police chiefs."The recommendations recognize that solving the gun violence problem is not the responsibility of one entity or one level of government," the recommendation guide said. "There is a role for everyone on the gun issue: individuals (legal gun owners and non-gun owners alike); law enforcement personnel; prosecutors; judges; state governments; the federal government; family and friends of people who may be in crisis; researchers; the philanthropic community; and the community at...

    U.S. Navy Divers Tasked to Investigate Claims By Ken Regis The U.S. Navy was summoned to nearby Badluck Lake, Wisconsin to investigate claims made by several residents of Armbegone, a fishing village with a population of 850 permanent residents. “We learned that an extraordinary number of local residents had similar experiences at the lake and we wanted to confirm their accounts and, at a minimum, recover their property” said Master Chief Petty Officer and Master Diver, Gil Abel who is stationed at the U.S. Navy’s facility in Great Lakes, Illinois. Navy divers search in vain for lost weapons After...

    Illinois Democrats Rep. Bobby Rush and Sen. Tammy Duckworth have introduced a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to own a gun without a federally issued license. The bill is based on the Illinois Firearm Owners Identification card program, which Rush claims "has worked for more than 50 years to prevent gun violence in my state." While the touted "success" of the Illinois program seems to be regularly contradicted by the gun fatality statistics in the state's largest city, Duckworth asserts that we should "imagine how much worse things would've been in Chicago without the gun owners...

    We are shouting from the outside. Shout loud and long enough, though, and we can prevail. We can civilize our gun laws. One month ago, this editorial page launched a campaign called “31 bullets” to promote 31 ways to curb gun violence in our nation, and with each proposed action we did our best to include a simple way that you, personally, could make it happen. We presented our 31st and last bullet — a call for federal design safety standards for American-made guns — on Tuesday.

    Republican Rep. Diane Black of Tennessee recently cited pornography, along with the deterioration of the family and violent movies, as a contributing factor to gun violence in schools. Black made the remarks during a listening session with local pastors last week. "Why do we see kids being so violent? What's out there? What makes them do that?" Black said. "Because, as a nurse, I go back to root cause. And I think it's a couple things," Black said, listing off deterioration of the family and violent movies, before mentioning pornography. "Pornography. It's available. It's available on the shelf when you...

    Having enjoyed my 82nd birthday, I am part of a group of about 50 million Americans who are 65 years of age or older. Those who are 90 or older were in school during the 1930s. My age cohort was in school during the 1940s. Baby boomers approaching their 70s were in school during the 1950s and early '60s. Try this question to any one of those 50 million Americans who are 65 or older: Do you recall any discussions about the need to hire armed guards to protect students and teachers against school shootings? Do you remember school policemen...

Get that Senator Feinstein and the rest of you Communist gun confiscators posing as American representatives of the people? A Memphis, Tennessee homeowner unleashed firepower from his AK-47 against two burglars who had broken into his home on Friday evening. Both burglars are now dead. According to a local CBS affiliate, 28-year-old Azell Witherspoon and 17-year-old Demond Robinson were shot and killed after the homeowner, who asked not to be identified, and a friend arrived at his house to discover the two men rummaging through his house....

    The surprise commencement speaker at the Florida high school where a gunman killed 17 people in February was Jimmy Fallon, who said he wanted to thank the students personally for their courage and bravery. “Most commencement speakers get up and talk in future tense: `You will succeed. You will make us proud, you will change the world,’ the “Tonight Show” host said. “But I’m not going to say that, because you’re not the future. You’re the present. … You are succeeding, you are making us proud.” Fallon joked about his own less-than-stellar high school performance — it took having to...
