    On January 16, a Marine veteran with a concealed carry permit drew his gun and successfully came to the rescue of a Bastrop County deputy who was under assault.

    According to the Austin American-Statesman, around 9:45 p.m. in Bastrop, Texas, 23-year-old Deputy Dylan Dorris responded to reports of “a man driving erratically” with a child in the vehicle. As Dorris attempted to stop the vehicle, the man continued to drive, eventually pulling into a gas station.

    When Dorris tried to apprehend the suspect, a fight ensued and became so vicious that the deputy could not get his hand on the radio to call for backup. The suspect was reportedly attempting to take Dorris’ gun, and Dorris remembers telling himself, “Just keep fighting, keep fighting. Do whatever you can do, just stay alive. You need to go home.”

    San Bernardino County supervisor–and vice chair of the Board of Supervisors–Robert A. Lovingood is urging residents to get their concealed carry licenses and carry guns for self-defense to prevent another December 2-style attack.

    Writing in Daily Press, Lovingood observes:

    As [we saw on]…Dec. 2, terrorists and criminals can strike defenseless civilians before law enforcement can arrive. So when seconds count, responsible armed citizens can act immediately to cut short a disaster. Armed civilians also deter crime. And research indicates that law-abiding citizens carrying concealed weapons do not increase gun crimes or deadly gun accidents.

    Make no mistake: This is not a call for vigilantism. This is a call for self-defense under the law.

    Gun-free zones can’t provide protection from killers. And killers are the problem, not good, honest, responsible people who are armed. When every second counts, well-trained, armed citizens can save lives. In the recent surge of terrorist stabbings in Israel, the government encouraged citizens to carry firearms under the law. That has been an effective deterrent.

    Democrat lawmakers introduced legislation on Wednesday to allow crime victims to sue gun stores for the misuse of firearms.

    The bill, titled the Equal Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act, is being pushed as a way to reverse protections gun stores and manufacturers enjoy under the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which was signed in 2005.

    According to The Hill, gun rights groups warn that the PLCAA was passed to protect gun stores and manufacturers from being sued by people using the court system as a backdoor avenue for gun control. But “Democrats say gun manufacturers and dealers that sell firearms to criminals should be ‘on the hook’ for mass shootings.”

    At the same time, Democrats say overturning the protections on gun stores and manufacturers is not intended to lead to a surge in lawsuits. Rather, they assert that the “new legislation only targets irresponsible gun manufacturers and dealers that negligently sell firearms to criminals.”

    Arizona House Majority Leader Steve Montenegro (R-Avondale) is pushing to make the cost of a concealed carry permit course tax deductible.

    According to 91.5 KJZZ, Montenegro argues says that a concealed carry permit course “promotes safety” and gives the state the added advantage of a citizenry that is ready and able to act in self-defense when evil or demented persons attack. He said, “Law enforcement have told us time and again that the first line of defense are those that carry… [with] permits.”

    Montenegro also believes the tax deduction will serve to show new generations of Arizonans that the state values citizens with concealed carry permits.

    On January 16, the Atlanta Progressive News (APN) used one sentence to explain a Democrat-proposed ban that will require owners to hand over “assault weapons” by the end of October 2016 and in the very next sentence mocked pro-gun citizens who “are already yelling that Democrats are trying to take their guns away.”

    In other words–Sentence 1: New Democrat-proposed bill means your “assault weapons” will be taken away. Sentence 2: Pro-gun people are already trying to malign the law by claiming Democrats want to “take their guns.”

    Here are APN’s exact words:

    This bill will require people who possess assault weapons to render the weapon inoperable or turn it into the Georgia Bureau of Investigation by the end of October 2016. Pro-gun folks are already yelling that Democrats are trying to take their guns away.
