Rachel-  and we’ll also talk with Sandra Muldoon and Shari Spivack of Second Amendment Women.
Rob- did I tell you about anti-gun celebrities being caught illegally carrying handguns?  We have that and a lot more,
Rachel- so climb aboard

Seg 1- Personal news from each participant

Rob- lead in  This is the personal news segment of the polite society podcast.  John is off supervising the birth of a grandchild, so we have Rachel and I to hold down the podcast today.  Rachel, How is your gun world? Have you caught up on sleep after living in the Texas Senate building last week?

Rachel- I have caught up on sleep…just in time for the start of Jordan’s spring football. 😉 It’s all good. Nothing strictly with guns this past week…I need to change that…but if you can expand that to general preparedness, I do have news. Jordan and I are setting up a home gym and I found a bunch of great stuff off of Craigslist. Very excited about that.

As a follow-up to last week’s committee hearing – the witness list was posted today. I’ve been looking forward to perusing it and learning what I can. Here’s what we’ve found after a quick reading this afternoon:
77% of those “against” came from Austin, TX; 23% came from elsewhere.
21% of those “for” or “on” came from Austin, TX; 79% came from elsewhere.
78% of those “against” only dropped a registration card.
35% of those “for” or “on” only dropped a registration card.

Rob- The local city planning commission is using lame excuses to refuse a gun range the building permits it needs.  I spoke about it at a local political meeting and asked the audience to go to the planning commission meeting  that is happening right now.  They reminded me of the ATF.  The ATF said cheap 223 ammunition has no sporting purpose.  Scuse me?  What else are you going to do with cheap ammo but shoot it for sport?  The local planning commission said the range was not for recreation.  What they meant to say is we don’t like your kind around here.

Seg 2- News

Rachel gives us the news

-David Malik is a leading civil rights attorney in Cleveland, Ohio.  He also doesn’t want you owning guns.  Mister Malik was arrested over the weekend at Cleveland Hopkins Airport.   Malik had a concealed handgun in his carry-on bag.  David Malik is the original attorney for the family of 12-year-old Tamir Rice who was slain by police in November.  Attorney Malik spent the night in jail after a .22 caliber handgun and a box of ammunition were discovered in his luggage by airport security.

It is common for anti-gun celebrities to carry firearms.  Dwayne Ferguson was a community activist and a vocal supporter of the New York SAFE act.. until he was arrested for illegally bringing a pistol onto school grounds in Buffalo, New York.

Illinois state senator Donne Trotter was charged with a felony for bringing a loaded handgun through the security checkpoint at O’Hare airport.  Democrat Trotter was running to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. in Congress at the time.  This happened before the courts brought concealed carry to Illinois.  Trotter routinely voted to kill concealed carry bills in the Illinois Senate.

More serious was the example set by California State Senator Leland Yee.  Senator Yee both proposed and supported strict gun control.. for California citizens.  That was before his arrest on political corruption, racketeering and gun trafficking charges.  Yee wanted to sell rocket propelled grenades to criminals.

Retired Chicago Alderman Richard Mell is the father-in-law of disgraced former governor and felon Rod Blagojevich.  Alderman Mell helped craft Chicago’s old ban on handguns.  Alderman Mell also used his political connections to rewrite the registration law and create an “amnesty” period after he’d neglected to do the paperwork needed to keep his firearms.

And the late Frank Melton, former mayor of Jackson, Miss., routinely violated “gun laws” .. the same laws he demanded everyone else to obey.

There is a troubling double standard in the case of Democrat Texas State Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa.  The senator brought his own gun into an airport security area.. and didn’t even have to stand for arraignment.

Rob- Michael Moore’s bodyguard was charged for carrying a gun in a gun free zone.  Last week, the Bloomberg group Moms demand action for gun safety hired armed bodyguards, and used the armed guards to push around unarmed civilians when they testified at the Texas capital.  There are rules for us, and special rules for gun-control spokesmen and politicians.

Rachel-You remember what firearms instructor Bob Main says.  “I carry a gun because I can’t carry a cop.”  Even if we could have a policeman at our shoulder, we might want to leave them at the police station.  We’ve all seen the social media posts about police using unnecessary force.  Partial data indicates that police are convicted of firearms violations much more often than concealed carry holders.  We don’t have the complete data across the US for concealed carry holders, but the data we have for Florida says that the police were over 20 times more likely to be charged with a firearms violation than civilians.

Rob- Some factors explain the high rate of violations by law enforcement.  Each policeman sees more violent incidents than the average civilian.  Also, a civilian will often bring charges against an officer if the officer misuses a gun.  The concealed carry holder knows who belongs in his living room in the middle of the night.. and the policeman doesn’t.

There are other factors that work against the concealed carry holder.  Each criminal on the street will assault many civilians before the criminal is finally arrested by a policeman.   Also, many  jurisdictions ignore behavior by police where that same behavior by a civilian would result in prosecution.

Rob- we have dean Dean Weingarten here to make sense of this subject. Gun Watch blog, and it has a lot of news.  “For the data that we have, police appear to be three times as likely to commit murder as a concealed carry permit holder.”  Dean interview.

Dean Weingarten, welcome.
How did you get interested in this subject.
I’ve been an instructor for 40 years.  My students are extraordinarily responsible.
How do concealed carry holders compare to law enforcement officers.
Who records when an officer is arrested?
Not the FBI.  The FBI doesn’t even collect the justifiable homicides.
Domestic violence by police is closely tracked.
Who did you compare.
What did you find.
Police are 1.4/100k vs Florida is a third of that number.
police 4-5 times more likely than CCW
CCW 9 times more law abiding than general public.

Rachel- Frequent listeners should remember hearing the young man from New Jersey.  Steffon Josey asked for an appeal, and an appeal was granted.  He and Evan Nappen will be in court soon!   They will have a date will be released in a few days. This poor kid needs some cash to earn his freedom.  Please donate to his go-fund-me account.  Throw in something even if it is only $5.

-The ATF claimed it does not need to publish its new rules in the Federal Register as it re-interprets the meaning of “armor piercing ammunition to outlaw surplus 223 ammo.  The ATF claims the reinterpretation is exempt from the Federal Administrative Procedures Act.  President Obama claimed the same thing when he re-wrote immigration law with his phone and his pen.

-Legislation to require more background checks on gun sales in Vermont has hit a major snag. Anti-rights advocates lobbied lawmakers to require background checks for sales of firearms at gun shows and over the internet. The legislation even made it into committee.  Senator Dick Sears of Bennington is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Senator Sears said quote “I don’t believe the background check portion of the bill has the votes to pass out of –committee.” close quote.  Most legislators do their homework and count votes before they propose legislation.

Moms Demand Action has been caught lying…again. Only this time, the untruth occurred in a committee hearing of the Texas Senate. Kelly Burke is the president of the Texas MDA chapter. While testifying against the open carry and campus carry bills last week, Ms. Burke claimed, (quote) “we do not know, about how, quote, responsible CHL holders are, because that data set is not available and is completely locked down. Any statements about how, quote, responsible and law-abiding CHL holders are is completely anecdotal and therefore conjecture.” (close quote) If she’d only searched Google, she could have easily found this data. It’s public record and is made available by the TXDPS.

-Texas open carry activists were rewarded again this week for their diligent efforts. Texas Governor Greg Abbott delivered a “state of the state” address Tuesday morning in which he laid out his top priorities for the state. Open carry made the cut. Abbott stated, (quote) “Let me briefly follow up on a word I mentioned a moment ago — liberty. In a single word, it encapsulates what this country stands for, what Texas symbolizes. I will expand liberty in Texas by signing a law that makes Texas the 45th state to allow open carry.” (close quote)

-Here are two conflicting ideas.  Some studies report high rates of sexual assault.   Women’s advocates say women are at great risk on college campuses.  Contrast that claim with the fact that many college administrators want to deny women the right to carry concealed on campus.  These administrators ignore that concealed carry holders are usually 21 years of age or older.  Concealed carry holders already have a license to carry across the state, but must disarm on campus.  In this age of diversity, the student body is more diverse than ever.  We already have returning veterans and delayed entry students on campus.  College students are not the drunken idiots shown in animal house.  They never were.  Students make adult decisions without parental supervision.  Lawmakers in 10 states are pushing bills that would permit the carrying of firearms on campus.  They hope the national spotlight on sexual assault will help them win passage of their measures.  Quote “If you’ve got a person that’s raped because you wouldn’t let them carry a firearm to defend themselves, I think you’re responsible,” State Representative Dennis K. Baxley of Florida said during debate in a House subcommittee last month. The bill passed out of committee.

Bills that would allow guns on campus have been introduced in Indiana, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas,  Florida and Nevada and Wyoming.

Rob-  I have the gun quote today, and this is one might surprise you.  “Fighting corruption is not just good governance. It’s self-defense. It’s patriotism.”  That was from vice president Joe Biden.  I wonder if he meant the New York SAFE act and San Antonio knife laws when he talked about government corruption.  Hang on everybody we have our interview segment next.

Rob- A man’s dog woke him up just at sunrise in Edmond Oklahoma.  Then the 46 year old homeowner heard someone beating on his front door.  The masked intruder smashed his way in carrying a baseball bat.  He hit the homeowner in the hand.  The homeowner ran to his kitchen and grabbed his handgun.  He shot the intruder in the face, neck and arm.  The intruder then ran across the street to his girlfriend’s apartment. She called 911, to get him medical attention.  The burglar is expected to survive.

The intruder was the homeowners former step-son.  The step-son is charged with first-degree burglary and assault with a dangerous weapon.

Rachel- Does a woman home alone stand a chance against four home intruders? She does if she has a gun. An Alabama woman refused entrance to a group of four who knocked on her door and asked to use her phone Monday afternoon. They left, but returned later that night. They forced their way inside. The homeowner pulled out her gun and fired. One invader, Richard Taylor, died of multiple gunshot wounds. The three accomplices survived, but are now being charged with Taylor’s murder. The homeowner is not expected to face charges.

Rob This note came from Ken in Arizona.  He said
This quote from Mahatma Gandhi struck me as one that’s appropriate for our gun rights.  Quote “First they ignore you. Then, they laugh at you. Then, they fight you. Then, you win.”  Close quote
Ken continues- They are currently fighting us with everything they have. We are only one step away from winning!

Seg 1- Personal news from each participant

 

Paul- Back at ABN for the first time in quite a while. No longer doing the Baltimore run. Bought my wife a really cool Valentines day gift.

 

John – My new Kydex holster has arrived for my Ruger LC9s and it fits the pistol very well. I’ve worn it around the house and you forget that you are carrying. Other than that, no new gun news. We are still on grandbaby watch and it could be this week as the official due date is the 19th.

 

Gary – My Glock 30 is now my official back up gun, it fed 3 boxes of Ranger T without a jam. I’m still using my Colt 1911 because my FFL who is also a leathersmith is supposed to be making a double, double stack mag pouch for the Para, which is also feeding the Ranger T without a hitch. I had a couple of conversations with former students about disparity of force and AOJ, please take a moment and review these with your instructors. We actually have it easier to appear at house of rep committee meetings here in Illinois than in Texas. Rachel had to drive to the meeting, I filed my appearance and opinion from my home office.

 

Rachel- Thursday’s Senate hearing on gun bills was my big activity this week – I did a special segment with Paul on that that’s being included in Episode 310. Friday and Saturday was follow-up with my activists and some recovery downtime with a friend. And trying to catch up after several near all-nighters this past week.

 

Rob- Shot IDPA yesterday.  I learned a lot by slowing down a little.

I’ll miss testimony for a local gun range before the city council because of the Wednesday podcast.

 

(Weekend shows only) I am going to insert a live promo about upcoming training classes in Sioux Falls here.

BATFE released a proposed ruling this week that would reclassify one of the most common AR-15 5.56 rounds as “armor piercing”. Specifically, they said the exemption from the pistol armor piercing list of the SS109/M855 bullet would be rescinded. This is the bullet that is commonly found in surplus 5.56 or .223 ammo. BATFE says the steel and lead core combo makes it armor piercing. They also say this bullet has no “sporting purpose”. People have until March 16th to submit comments on this proposal.

 

John – Comment – I see this as a parting gift to Attorney General Eric Holder who said his one failure was the failure to pass gun control.

Rob- I remember a poster by Oleg Volk.  There is no “right size” when it comes to gun grabbers and firearms.  Guns are always too large or too small, too accurate or too inaccurate, too cheap or too expensive, too loud or too quiet.   There is no right size when it comes to firearms, and the 223 is no exception.

Where is the outrage that my police are carrying ammunition that is so lethal it will penetrate body armor?

 

A campus carry bill was introduced into the Nevada House by Rep. Michelle Fiore (R-Las Vegas). The bill would allow those with carry permits to legally carry in buildings on Nevada public higher education campuses, to carry in the unsecured areas of airports, and to carry in public buildings with some exceptions. Rep. Fiore calls this bill “Amanda’s Law” after Amanda Collins. With Republicans in charge of both houses of the Nevada legislature, Fiore is confident that this third attempt to pass a campus carry bill will be successful.

 

Comment – Rob and I saw Amanda Collins discuss her rape in the film “Safe Havens”. It was very powerful stuff.

Rob Comment- The presidents of the Florida state universities opposed concealed carry on campus in Florida.  To our Florida listeners, you trusted these university officials to educate your children.

Rachel comment- the Austin police chief doesn’t think campus carry is the best option. He prefers to offer victim counseling after rapes rahter than give victims a fighting chance.

 

-When Illinois passed its concealed carry law two years ago, one of the places that was made off-limits for legal carry were the Cook County forest preserves. Now two Downtstate legislators have introduced a bill to allow legal carry in forest preserves. Rep. Kyle McCarter of Lebanon said, “Allowing those who the state has trained to carry a gun will only provide safety.” The Chicago Sun-Times in an editorial takes issue with that and tries to bolster their argument with a spurious report from the Violence Policy Center that “counted” 722 deaths nationwide since 2007 by concealed carry holders.

 

Rob comment- do I have to pay taxes for a park or place where my rights are denied.

rolling rolling rolling.. keep that podcast rolling.  Rawhide.

 

 

-Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) have introduced bills Thursday in their respective houses of Congress entitled, “The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015.” This bill would treat state-issued concealed-carry permits like drivers’ licenses, allowing law-abiding citizens with concealed carry privileges to concealed-carry in any other states that also permit it by law. The bill has bipartisan sponsorship and has the strong support of the NRA. Stutzman said, ““Americans enjoy a natural right to self-defense preserved by the Second Amendment. This federally guaranteed liberty should not be forfeited when state lines are crossed.”

 

Rob- I couldn’t find the house version of the bill yet.  See PopVox.com  https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/114/hr923

https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/114/s498

John – HR 923.

 

The New Hampshire State Senate voted 14-9 to approve constitutional carry of concealed firearms in the state. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Majority Leader Jeb Bradley. As Sen. Sharon Carson said, “This bill recognizes that the simple act of putting on a coat should not require a permit.” New Hampshire already recognizes unlicensed open carry. Senate Democrats argued that the bill will increase the number of deadly arguments. The bill now goes to the New Hampshire House for their approval.

 

Comment – I guess the New Hampshire Senate Democrats have never heard of an armed society being a polite society.

 

Rachel comment- So New Hampshire’s Senate thinks this is fine, but Texas’ Lt. Gov. Patrick doesn’t think it should even get a hearing. What’s wrong with this picture?

 

-We’ve reported on Operation Choke Point in past episodes. On Thursday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced a bill that would “defund, in perpetuity, “Operation Choke Point or any other program designed to discourage the provision or continuation of credit or the processing of payments by financial institutions for dealers and manufacturers of firearms and ammunition.“ The bill is called “Firearms Manufacturers and Dealers Protection Act of 2015.  Sen. Rubio’s bill would complement legislation introduced earlier in the month by Rep. Blaine Luetkmeyer of Missouri.

 

-We have reported many times on how New Jersey law has ensnared innocent victims. We have interviewed both Brian Aitken and Steffon Josey-Davis on this show. The latest victim is retired school teacher Van Gilder. Mr. Gilder was arrested for the mere possession of an unloaded 300-year-old “Queen Anne” single-shot flintlock. He has been charged with a Second Degree Felony of Criminal Possession of a Handgun which can carry a 10-year sentence. Mr. Gilder has been an antiques collector for years. Under Federal law, this single-shot flintlock pistol can be bought and sold by anyone. No license is required, it can be shipped through the mails, etc. A legal defense fund has been set up for Mr. Gilder and we would encourage you to be generous.

 

Rob- Can he register this firearm?

Break

 

-In Connecticut, the 16-member Sandy Hook Advisory Commission issued its report with a number of recommendations.  Their want to prohibit the sale and possession of any firearm capable of holding 10 rounds or more.  There was no provision to grandfather in existing firearms.  They recommended that any shell casing for ammunition sold in Connecticut have a unique serial number etched on it, and that each casing should be registered and traced.  Also, all firearms would be registered and ammunition buyers would be restricted to only the caliber chambered for their licensed guns. Those who have firearms licenses, stresses the report, should at every renewal pass a test of firearms handling capacity as well as an understanding of state and local laws.

 

Rob- That sounds like a semi-auto ban.. and a bolt action ban, since most could accept a mag over 19 rounds.  That means they would need a department in Connecticut like their DMV where a firearms owner would be tested every year.

 

-In Denmark, only licensed gun owners may possess firearm or ammunition. License applicants must establish what the authorities consider a “genuine” reason to possess a firearm. Those laws didn’t prevent deadly shootings in Denmark Saturday. A man killed a victim and injured three police officers at a free speech debate in a cafe. The gunman then proceeded to the city’s main synagogue, where he killed a Jewish man and wounded two police officers. Police tracked down the gunman and shot him Sunday morning. Investigators believe the attacks may have been inspired by the Paris shootings.

 

Gun Quotes- I strongly believe that the Second Amendment creates an individual right to possess and use guns for purposes of both hunting and self-defense. That quote was by democrat legal scholar -Cass Sunstein.

Gary- I have a problem with this quote.

 

Hang on everybody, we’ll be back with our defensive gun use segment.

A Kalamazoo County, Michigan man awoke around 11pm Saturday night to loud knocking on his door. As he went to check it out, one of the two men outside broke a window on the side of his house.  The homeowner shot the man as the home invader entered the house and his accomplice took off. Police arrested the accomplice nearby and took the wounded home invader to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

 

A San Antonio, Texas homeowner was uninjured this morning after exchanging gunfire with a home invader. The home invader, however, was shot in the stomach and was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Department said the home invasion suspect will be charged with burglary when he recovers. They said they don’t expect any charges to be filed against the homeowner.

 

-Normally, one does not think of heavy snow as being of an assist to law enforcement. However, a combination of an armed homeowner and deep snow allowed Springfield, Massachusetts police quickly to arrest brothers Jordan and Jovan Eady. They had broken into a house and threatened “to light the house up” last Saturday night. The homeowner was armed with a legally registered firearm and he shot Jordan in the arm. The Eady brothers were captured by Springfield Police after they ran from the home. The reason they were running and not driving is that their 2014 Chrysler 200 had gotten stuck in a snowbank. Police investigators said the homeowner had acted in self-defense of himself and his family and no charges would be brought against him. A followup story said both the brothers Eady were charged with burglary and malicious damage and released on bail. Their attorney said it was all a mistake and they had been drinking.

John do you want to mention anything off of your blog you would like to talk about?

 

We talk a lot about gun rights and politics on this show. Rarely do we address the history of older firearms. Some of these guns are absolute works of art. The late gun writer and firearms innovator Elmer Keith had an incredible collection of firearms. I did a story on Wednesday about the auction of his collection.
