Sometimes It Takes a Good Person with a Gun

Stereotypes of the gun owning community let politicians turn gun ownership for self defense into a political issue that can be put up for vote rather than an inalienable right.

I think it is important to realize gun owners can be Democrats as easily as they can be Republicans. Gun owners can be people of color, women, LGBT, Christian (of many different denominations), Jewish, Muslim or Atheist. There is no one stereotype.

Man who fired at Kroger shooter: ‘I was doing it to protect me and my wife’

Gregory Bush is currently being held for the cold blooded murder of two other African American people, whom he had just shot prior to being engaged by Mr. Rozier.

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Dominiic and Kiera Rozier were heading into Kroger last Wednesday to pick up cupcakes for their son’s birthday. As they were walking inside, people were trying to get out.

“Someone was like, ‘Don’t go in there, they’re shooting,’” Kiera said.

That’s when she said she heard gunshots. Moments later she saw the suspect, Gregory Bush, walk outside.

She wasn’t sure exactly what was happening. She saw a woman walking outside on the phone.

“She was really close to me on the phone and I heard her say she’s trying to get home,” Kiera recalled. “She said, ‘These people are shooting. They’re crazy. I just want to get home, Lord, let me get home.’ [Bush] looked at her, and he kind of grinned and he just shot her. And that’s when I just froze.”

Kiera said she moved closer to her husband, Dominiic, who had his gun drawn and asked the suspect if he was okay.

“Before he pulled the gun my husband said, ‘Don’t do this. Don’t do this,'” Kiera remembered. “Before he could even say it, the guy had the gun pointed at me and another lady not too far from me.”

Dominiic and Bush then started firing at each other in the parking lot.

More Jewish Americans enroll in firearm training following Pittsburgh shooting

Following every mass shooting it seems as though people react in two separate and polar opposite directions.  One side to ban guns the other to learn to use guns in self defense.

Years ago after surviving a kidnapping and rape that nearly cost me my life I chose the path of learning self defense.  Over the years I have listened to those who think they can change human nature and cause evil to disappear.  I have studied too much history to see that as a possibility.  I also know the police are not a personal body guard and there may well be times when I might be called upon to save my own life.

Members of minority groups who might be targeted for hate crimes should be prepared to defend their own lives.

Remington rifle settlement, including free trigger replacement, is official

From CNBC:  https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/24/remington-rifle-settlement-is-official.html


Oct. 24, 2018

      • Owners of some 7.5 million Remington firearms, including the Model 700 rifle, now have 18 months to file a claim.
      • A class action suit alleged the guns can fire without the trigger being pulled, though the company still maintains they are safe.
      • CNBC investigated allegations, denied by Remington, that the company covered up the alleged defect for decades.

    A landmark class action settlement involving some of Remington’s most popular firearms has officially gone into effect, after critics of the agreement declined to take their case to the Supreme Court by a Tuesday deadline, according to an attorney for the plaintiffs.

    That means that millions of owners of the iconic Model 700 rifle — and a dozen Remington models with similar designs — have 18 months to file claims for a free replacement of their guns’ allegedly defective triggers. The guns have been linked in lawsuits to dozens of accidental deaths and hundreds of serious injuries, though Remington still maintains they are safe.

    “Anyone with one of these guns should take advantage of this opportunity to get the trigger fixed,” said Eric D. Holland, a lead attorney for the plaintiffs in the class action case. “I’ve encouraged everyone to put these guns away. Don’t use these guns. Make the claims now.”

    A special website has been set up with information on how to file a claim, and there is also a toll-free hotline, 1-800-876-5940.

Bill Introduced To Prevent Banks From Cutting Off Gun Industry

From Bearing Arms:  https://bearingarms.com/tom-k/2018/10/19/bill-introduced-prevent-banks-cutting-off-gun-industry/

October 19, 2018

If there’s one depressing thing I do here at Bearing Arms, it’s writing about financial institutions which have unilaterally decided to stop doing business with lawful firearm companies because they don’t like the business they’re in. Like many, I’ve been trying to find a reason why this is happening. I can’t believe the entire financial industry is full of anti-gunners and nothing else.

That’s led to some speculation on my part.

However, a bill has now been introduced which seeks to completely eradicate the problem.

In response to banking institutions that have imposed policies against business related to the firearms industry in the wake of  the deadly school shooting in Florida earlier in the year, Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy proposed legislation prior the recess that would prohibit the federal government from granting contracts to banks that discriminate against lawful businesses and based only on social policy considerations.

The bill dropped just weeks before a court documents from a lawsuit advanced by payday lenders four years ago, revealed e-mails about the how the Obama administration planned out the now defunct Operation Choke Point—a campaign led by the FDIC that pressured banks to terminate their relationships with industries disfavored by the administration.

A member of the Senate Banking Committee, Kennedy says this bill should certify that “like Citigroup and Bank of America, which enacted policies infringing on the Second Amendment rights of businesses, will not be awarded lucrative federal government contracts.”

The No Red and Blue Banks Act comes on the heels of a March 22 announcement made by Citigroup which outlined firearms related requirements of its banking clients. This includes telling businesses as to what types of legal firearms and accessories they can sell and who they can legally sell to.

I’ll be honest, I don’t like the government telling anyone who they can’t do business with, but I’m also not a fan of the government telling businesses that they have to do business with anyone either.
