Armed Citizen Fights Of Home Invaders In Alabama

A home invasion last Thursday night in Alabama left one of three armed intruders dead after a resident of the home fought back.

According to local law enforcement, three armed men kicked in the door of a home in Choctaw County, Ala., entered the home and began shooting. The homeowner returned fire, hitting one of the suspects and putting an end to the attack.

“Upon deputies’ arrival, the suspect was deceased,” Sheriff Scott Lolley told WTOK.com, adding, “You do have the right to protect inside your home and you have the right to protect anyone inside.” Officials continue to look for the other two suspects.


Pennsylvania AG Convicted Of Perjury, Criminal Conspiracy

We’ve detailed before how several members of Michael Bloomberg’s so-called Mayors Against Illegal Guns organization turned out to be criminals themselves. So it should come as little surprise that a state attorney general who Bloomberg spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to help get elected has resigned after being found guilty of numerous criminal acts.

Pennsylvania AG Kathleen G. Kane resigned last week after a jury found her guilty of perjury, criminal conspiracy and several other charges related to the abuse of her position. According to NRA-ILA, Kane coordinated a leak of confidential grand jury materials to the media in order to discredit a rival; the conviction for perjury was the result of Kane’s attempt to cover up her illicit behavior.

Kane ran for attorney general in 2012 with the backing of billionaire Bloomberg, who financed a $250,000 ad campaign against Kane’s opponent. In December 2012 Attorney General-Elect Kane added her name to a letter signed by a handful of attorneys general that opposed federal Right-to-Carry reciprocity legislation.


California Legislative Session Winding Down—Finally

With only two weeks left in California’s legislative session, Golden State gun owners must remain vigilant in supporting good legislation while continuing to fight bad measures.

One bill that needs support before the session ends is AB 2510, which would allow local law enforcement authorities to issue concealed carry weapons (CCW) identification cards approved by the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) as proof that individuals are licensed in the state.

Two bad measures—SB 1332 and AB 450—also need the immediate attention of gun owners. SB 1332 would modify the firearm registration process to allow for joint registration by spouses and domestic partners, and require DOJ to maintain both names on the registry. AB 450 would delete the $100 fee limit on CCW application processing and require more fees to cover issuing and enforcement of a license. Please contact members of the Assembly Public Safety Committee and ask that they oppose AB 450 by clicking here.

USE YOUR POWER!

Make sure the last two weeks of the legislative session are positive for gun owners. Californians should contact their assembly members and ask them to support AB 2510 and oppose SB 1332 by clicking here.
