Parkland School Shooting Survivor Speaks In Dallas

Parkland School Shooting Survivor Speaks In Dallas

DALLAS – The conversation about gun rights and school safety continued over the weekend, well after the nationwide march.

One Parkland school shooting survivor, 17-year old Justin Irwin, spoke at the Lovers Lane United Methodist Church in Dallas.

Justin said he stands by the second amendment, but he also wants to see new laws put into place, including raising the age of purchase to 21, tightening red flag laws, stronger background checks and banning bump stocks.

A couple of years ago, Justin lost a grandfather who served in the Vietnam war, and it helped him realize just how important fighting for the country is… that`s why he plans to join the ROTC or a military academy, and to own a gun when he`s legally able.

“The main thing I want to do is I want to be able to help people,” Irwin said. “And I love America, I want to protect my country, fight for the people who can’t fight, protect them, do whatever I can do to help out people… I’m not against guns at all, like if you want guns, I believe you should be able to get them as long as you have no issues in your background, and no mental illnesses and you know how to use it right and you’re trained, and once you have all the background checks, which need to be improved upon, the ones that we have now, but as long as you pass on that, I think you should be able to use the guns that you want.”

Saturday`s March for Our Lives took place in many cities around the country, and the other speaker at the event took part in a march in Fort Worth.

Anden Suarez spoke about what she feels Christians and communities of faith need to recognize, when it comes to gun violence in the U.S.

“We live in a country that is in the middle of a devastating culture of gun violence,” Suarez said. “The number of deaths is unprecedented. And as a community we need to recognize that, we need to address that culture, we need to address it with legislation but we also need to give it our attention, but we also need to give it our vote, we have to give it our time, our prayers, our thoughts, and our action. And that’s what it comes down to, is recognizing that it’s not just about one law or one bill, as much good as that will do, and as much as we should advocate for legislation reform, we have to look and reflect on our culture, why it is like that and how we can amend it.”

Justin is on the swim team at marjory stoneman douglas And he lost one of his best friends in the shooting, team co-captain, 17-year old Nicholas Dworet, who would have turned 18 on Saturday.

At the march in D.C., the crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to him out of respect.

Timeline Of Pivotal Events For US Gun Control History

Timeline Of Pivotal Events For US Gun Control History

Gun control is one of the most polarizing issues in U.S. society. For nearly a century, legislation and U.S. Supreme Court cases have shaped federal gun policy. Following are some pivotal moments in that history:

——

1871 —The National Rifle Association is formed by two Union veterans who were disappointed by the lack of marksmanship by their troops. The goal of the group was to “promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis,” one of the veterans wrote in a magazine editorial, according to the NRA.

1927 — Congress passes the “Nonmailable Firearms Act of 1927, making it illegal to use the U.S. mail to ship “pistols, revolvers, and other firearms capable of being concealed on the person.” Exceptions were made for military, police and other official purposes. The penalty for violations was up to two years in prison and/or a fine of up to $1,000.

1934 — The National Firearms Act, the first comprehensive federal gun control legislation, is enacted, aimed at cracking down on the bloody gangland era of Al Capone, John Dillinger and others. The law imposed a $200 tax, which was considered prohibitive at the time, on machine guns and shotguns and rifles with barrels shorter than 18 inches. It also required the federal registration of these types of firearms. The act was part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s “New Deal for Crime.”

1938 — The Federal Firearms Act of 1938 takes effect, requiring firearms licenses for gun dealers, manufacturers and importers. It compelled sellers to keep customer records and banned sales to some people, including convicted felons.

1939 — The U.S. Supreme Court, in U.S. v. Miller, rules that a short-barrel shotgun is not a weapon protected under the Second Amendment.

1968 — The assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, the Rev. Martin Luther King and Sen. Robert Kennedy lead to the Gun Control Act of 1968. It created new categories of firearms crimes, banned the sale of firearms and ammunition to felons and other prohibited groups of people, and imposed federal jurisdiction over “destructive devices,” including bombs and grenades, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

1986 — The Firearm Owners’ Protection Act amends the 1968 law, relaxing some gun control measures. It limited ATF inspections of sellers to once a year, repealed some record-keeping requirements for the sale of ammunition, prohibited the government from establishing a national registry of gun owners, and permitted gun dealers, importers and manufacturers to do business at temporary locations, such as gun shows.

1993 — The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 requires federal background checks before a firearm can be purchased from a federally licensed dealer, manufacturer or importer. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is maintained by the FBI, conducts the checks. The law is named after James Brady, who was seriously wounded in an assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan in 1981 when he was serving as White House press secretary. Reagan and two others also were shot. Brady died in 2014.

1994 — Congress passes a 10-year ban on the manufacture, transfer and possession of new semi-automatic assault weapons. The ban was part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which also banned certain large capacity ammunition magazines. The measure applied only to weapons manufactured after the ban was enacted, and it expired in 2004. Numerous efforts to renew it have failed.

2003 — The Tiahrt Amendment, proposed by Todd Tiahrt, a Kansas Republican, bars the ATF from publicly releasing information about where criminals bought their firearms.

2005 — President George W. Bush signs the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, prohibiting gun manufacturers and dealers from being named in civil lawsuits in federal and state courts when crimes are committed involving their firearms.

2008 — In the District of Columbia v. Heller, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that Americans have a constitutional right to keep handguns and commonly used firearms in their homes for self-defense. The ruling struck down the District of Columbia’s 32-year handgun ban as incompatible with gun rights under the Second Amendment.

Concealed Carry Permit Holder Kills Alleged Carjacker

Concealed Carry Permit Holder Kills Alleged Carjacker

A Wisconsin man, using a gun licensed under a concealed-carry permit, shot and killed an alleged carjacker in his company’s parking lot, a city official said.

The unidentified employee, 24, had just arrived for work at Milwaukee Machine Tool Corp., shortly before 6 a.m. Monday when a man named Carlos Martin, 21, allegedly attempted to carjack him with a gun, Milwaukee city alderman Cavalier Johnson told ABC News.

Police have provided few details.

The Machine Tool worker had a concealed-carry permit, Johnson said, and used his legal weapon to shoot Martin, who died from his injuries.

The debate over concealed-carry weapons and the virtues of the “good guy with a gun” has been reignited after the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, this month killed 17 students and educators.

While people who have concealed-carry permits are trained to deal with the consequences of taking a life, that’s never the intent, according to concealed-carry permit trainer and gun expert Dean Hazen of Urbana, Illinois.

“It’s a terrible thing, the worst thing you can possibly do in your life with never-ending consequences,” the retired police officer said. “The intent is never to kill anybody. The intent is to stop the threat. Whether they live or die is not up to you.”

But intent or no intent is beside the point for Johnson, the Milwaukee alderman.

“I think that whether it is mass shootings or what we have here, the root cause is trying to make sure that people who shouldn’t have guns don’t have them in the first place,” he said.

The Milwaukee Medical Examiner did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for results of Martin’s autopsy.

Police said the shooter is cooperating with their investigation, after which the Milwaukee District Attorney’s office will review the case and decide whether to bring any charges.

Milwaukee Machine Tool declined to comment on the shooting.

Possible Rise In Purchase Age For Certain Firearms

Trump considers raising purchase age for certain firearms, amid gun control talks

 

President Trump is signaling an openness to the idea of raising the minimum age for purchasing certain firearms in the wake of last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla., where a 19-year-old is accused of killing 17 teachers and students with an AR-15 rifle.

A White House source told Fox News that Trump is open to a number of measures to address mass shootings, including supporting a rise in the minimum age for owning certain firearms – a proposal that could face resistance from gun rights groups, like the National Rifle Association.

According to the Giffords Law Center, which tracks gun laws and advocates for more restrictions, licensed firearm dealers under federal law cannot sell handguns to people under 21 and cannot sell long guns to people under 18. Some state laws already impose stricter minimum age requirements.

It’s not clear if Trump would seek changes to federal laws, the source said, or if he would advocate for a change at the state level.

The Washington Post reported that Trump is considering arguments that the minimum age for buying any semiautomatic weapon should be raised from 18 to 21. Axios also reported that Trump has been telling associates that he “doesn’t think high school kids should be able to buy guns.”

During Tuesday’s White House briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about raising the age for buying AR-15s and said, “I think that’s certainly something that’s on the table for us to discuss, and that we expect to come up over the next couple of weeks.”

She said the administration is working to determine what can be done at the federal level.

“I know there are currently laws in place in certain states that restrict that,” she said. “In terms of whether or not we make that federal policy, that hasn’t yet been determined.”

The NRA has not yet publicly commented on the trial balloon. But the discussion could be a test for Trump’s loyal base, as many of his supporters generally oppose new restrictions that would affect law-abiding gun owners. Yet Trump has flouted traditional conservative positions in the past, and could be testing whether he could sway certain wings of the party.

At the same time, he may be wary of going too far.

The talks come as the NRA’s executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, is expected to address conservative activists at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference outside Washington this week.

Trump, who was backed by the NRA during the 2016 election, has expressed support for the Second Amendment and said he’s against reflexive gun control measures that wouldn’t stop tragedies.

But since last week’s shooting, the president has begun to embrace new gun restrictions.

Trump on Tuesday directed Attorney General Jeff Sessions to craft new regulations to ban firearm modifiers including the “bump stock” used in the Las Vegas massacre.

A memo, released by the White House on Tuesday, directs the DOJ to propose a rule “banning all devices that turn legal weapons into machineguns.”

Sanders said the White House hasn’t “closed the door on any front” when it comes to trying to stop mass shootings and said Trump supports efforts to improve the federal background system.

Trump on Tuesday tweeted, “Whether we are Republican or Democrat, we must now focus on strengthening Background Checks!”

The president on Wednesday is hosting parents, teachers and students at the White House to discuss efforts to ensure safety at schools.

Among those attending will be members of the Parkland community and those affected by the Sandy Hook and Columbine school shootings, the White House said.

Texas Attorney General Issues Opinion on Guns in Texas Churches

Texas Attorney General Issues Opinion on Guns in Texas Churches

On Thursday, December 21, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued the following opinion in regards to guns and security teams in Texas churches:

“Licensed handgun owners can legally carry loaded weapons into Texas churches that do not have posted signs banning weapons, Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a legal opinion released today. The opinion also clarified that a new law passed this year by the Legislature exempts churches from state fees for creating volunteer security teams.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick requested the opinion on December 1, and asked Attorney General Paxton to expedite his responses “so that churches may know what legal options they have to improve security” in the aftermath of the Sutherland Springs tragedy.

“If a church decides to exclude the concealed or open carrying of handguns on the premises of church property, it may provide the requisite notice, thereby making it an offense for a license holder to carry a handgun on those premises,” Attorney General Paxton wrote in his opinion. “However, churches may instead decide not to provide notice and to allow the carrying of handguns on their premises. Unless a church provides effective oral or written notice prohibiting the carrying of handguns on its property, a license holder may carry a handgun onto the premises of church property as the law allows.”

Senate Bill 2065, which took effect September 1, exempts churches from state fees private institutions must pay to form their own security forces. The legislature ended the fees because they imposed a significant financial burden on smaller churches.

“The regulations of the Private Security Act, including the fees required thereunder, do not apply to Texas churches when providing volunteer security services consistent with the requirements of section 1702.333 of the Occupations Code,” Attorney General Paxton concluded.

Armed Men Rob Customers at DFW Fast Food Restaurant

Armed Men Rob Customers at DFW Fast Food Restaurant

– Police in Terrell are looking for the men who robbed a Whataburger at gunpoint. The men ordered customers to the ground and took cash from the registers on New Year’s Day. They fled in a light grey or smoky blue four-door sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima. The next day there was a similar robbery at a Whataburger in nearby Forney.

No one was hurt in either robbery.

Situations like this can happen at anytime, so it’s important to have a sense of situational awareness. It’s also another reminder why personal self defense and having a license to carry can help give people a fighting chance when faced with danger.

Increased Shootings Ramp Up NRA Concealed Carry Bill

Increased Shootings Ramp Up NRA Concealed Carry Bill

WASHINGTON — America’s recent mass shootings have increased pressure from gun-rights advocates to pass the National Rifle Association’s top legislative priority: a bill to make it easier to carry concealed weapons across state lines, the bill’s author said Thursday.

Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., told USA TODAY the shootings at a Las Vegas concert and Texas church have only intensified his colleagues and constituents’ interest in the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. House leaders assured him this week that they are committed to getting the bill to the House floor for a vote before the end of the year, he said.

For many Americans, he said, the horror of the shootings reinforced the belief that carrying a concealed weapon is an important way to protect and defend themselves.

“If anything, the tragedy in Texas underscores why we need to protect law abiding citizens who choose to defend themselves with a concealed weapon,” Hudson said. “It certainly hasn’t changed the timeline. My colleagues have been asking me all week, ‘Are we going to be moving your bill? This is important.’”

A gunman opened fire in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Nov. 5, killing 25 people including a pregnant woman whose unborn baby also died.

The bill would require each state to recognize concealed carry permits from every other state — as they would a driver’s license — regardless of different permitting standards. Residents of several states requiring no permits would be able to carry their weapons in other states that allow concealed carry, as long as they abide by local laws.

Texas shooting prompts congressional GOP to talk about fixing background checks

Timeline: How Congress has responded to mass shootings

The NRA has lobbied intensely for the bill, urging for its passage as part of its response to the Las Vegas shooting in October that killed 58 people and wounded more than 500. They say it would eliminate a confusing patchwork of state concealed-carry laws and reciprocity agreements that can cause a law-abiding gun owner to unwittingly break the law while traveling out of state.

“The underlying question is, should you lose your right to defend yourself when you cross the state line?” NRA lobbyist Chris Cox said in an interview with USA TODAY last spring.

Hudson said his bill prevents law-abiding gun owners from becoming criminals, just by crossing a state line.

“If I drive from my home in North Carolina through Virginia to D.C., I don’t have to stop at the state line and take a new driver’s test, get a new license,” he said.

Gun control advocates say forcing states with strong permitting standards to honor permits from those with weaker ones will endanger public safety and make it harder for police to enforce gun laws. While every state and the District of Columbia allows the carrying of concealed weapons in some form, 38 states generally require a state-issued permit to carry in public and the remaining 12 generally allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons in public without a permit, according to Giffords Law Center.

“It’s a very dangerous bill. We’ll work very hard to oppose that,” said Avery W. Gardiner, co-president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “Driver’s licenses come with road tests, with written tests, with insurance requirements. Concealed carry permits usually don’t. There are some states with very few requirements.”

Last month, 17 state attorneys general opposed the bill in a letter to House and Senate leaders, arguing it would override local public safety decisions and endanger communities and police.

“Rather than creating a new national standard for who may carry concealed firearms, these bills would elevate the lowest state standard over higher ones and force some states to allow concealed carry by people who do not qualify under their laws,” wrote the attorneys general, led by Eric T. Schneiderman of New York.

Hudson said criticisms of his bill are “emotional concerns” and “the facts just don’t bear it out.” His bill does not increase access to weapons or expand the places where people can carry weapons.

“We were careful to recognize the rights of states and municipalities to set their own restrictions,” he said. “If (New York City) bans concealed carry in Time Square, concealed carry holders would have to follow that law.”

A similar Senate bill by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, has 38 Republican co-sponsors. An earlier version of Cornyn’s bill came within three votes of advancing in 2013. The measure needed 60 votes but failed 57-43.

“I do think we’ve got a chance,” Hudson said.

3 Most Common Firearm Stoppages

The 3 Most Common Firearm Stoppages

Firearms, like any mechanical tool, are capable of malfunctioning. Whether it’s the result of user error or an unavoidable part failure, jams happen and while being a mere annoyance for a plinker, they can have dire consequences for someone who owns a pistol for protection. Below we address the most common stoppages you can encounter when shooting a semi-automatic firearm and how to recognize and resolve them.

Keep in mind that if you notice a problem with your firearm, do not attempt to shoot it until you have assessed the issue and always follow the NRA’s fundamental rules for safe gun handling:

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

If you are not comfortable handling the situation on your own, there’s no shame in getting the attention of your instructor or a range officer and asking them to assist you.

Without further ado, here are the three most common types of semi-auto stoppages:

Failure to Feed

What happens: You pull the trigger and the gun goes click instead of boom. While it’s often a dud cartridge that just won’t fire, it could also mean the magazine failed to load a new cartridge into the chamber.

What to do: Tap the bottom of the magazine with the palm of your support hand to ensure it’s fully seated. Invert the gun and rack the slide to clear any stoppage and load a fresh round into the chamber. Finally, reassume the shooting position and assess the target area. This is known as the Tap, Rack and Assess drill.

Failure to Eject


Image credit: Wikipedia.org

What happens: Also known as a stovepipe, this stoppage occurs when you pull the trigger and nothing happens, similar to a Failure to Feed. But with this stoppage you’ll notice the cartridge from your previously fired round is now stuck in the ejection port, resembling… a stovepipe. This jam will also cause your slide to not sit completely forward.

What to do: Like with a Failure to Feed, the Tap, Rack and Assess will suit you here. Tap the bottom of your magazine to make sure it’s seated, rack the slide to feed a new round into the chamber and force the jammed cartridge out, and assess downrange.

Failure to Go into Battery


Image credit: RobarGuns.com

What happens: A Failure to Go into Battery occurs when the cartridge is not fully seated in the chamber, forcing the slide to not fully sit forward. A variation of this stoppage, known as a Double Feed, happens when the slide picks up a fresh round before the previous cartridge can be ejected and attempts to seat them simultaneously.

What to do: A Tap, Rack and Assess should work, although you may have to rack the slide a little more vigorously than with the other two types of stoppages. Occasionally you may have difficulty clearing the chamber due to pressure applied by the magazine’s spring. In this case you should remove the magazine, which may take a little force, and rack the slide several times until the chamber has been cleared. Then reload your magazine, give it a good tap on the bottom, rack the slide to load a new cartridge, and assess the target area.

Remember that these are just the three most common types of firearm malfunctions. The basic principle behind the Tap, Rack, and Assess drill is to resolve the stoppage by unloading and reloading the gun, but firearms and bullets can fail in other ways. If your gun ever performs in a way that seems off, do not try to fire another round until you have determined it is safe to do so.

Stoppages happen from time to time, but the risk can be mitigated through proper stance, using reliable ammunition, and regular maintenance of not just your firearm, but your magazine and any accessories you use. Get in the habit of cleaning your tools after you use them and your guns should enjoy improved reliability and a longer life.
