    Roanoke police chief Tim Jones is urging the City Council to curtail open carry within city limits by barring the carry of some of the most popular semiautomatics available.

    According to WSLS, some Roanoke residents have complained about open carry of certain semiautomatic firearms “in public.” In light of those complaints, Jones is urging the City Council to curtail open carry. He appeals to the Fourth Amendment as justification for curtailing the Second Amendment, thereby intimating that protections on privacy contained in “[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects” are an equal guarantee that one person’s disapproval of a certain type of legally owned firearm is a sufficient basis for treating the public domain as if it were private property.

    Jones put it this way: “The Second Amendment is part of the constitution. I support the Second Amendment. I also support the Fourth Amendment. As the police chief we are the guardians of the constitution.”

    Dakota Silencer’s Varminter 3.0 offers hearing protection and recoil reduction in a compact, titanium package designed to make your AR-15 or .308 hunting rifles less impactful on you and your environment.

    On September 14, Missouri lawmakers will convene with the opportunity to override Governor Jay Nixon’s (D) veto of SB 656, permitless carry.
    The permitless carry bill would expand the exercise of “the fundamental right to self-defense of Missourians and strengthen their ability to protect themselves and their families” by doing away with the requirement that law-abiding Missourians go through a permitting process to exercise Second Amendment rights.

    By overriding the veto, lawmakers will allow Missouri to join Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Montana, Vermont, Wyoming, and West Virginia on the list of states that recognize the Second Amendment as a sufficient concealed carry permit for law-abiding residents.

    San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia says there are “absolutely” too many guns in America, and that more gun control is needed.
    Garcia also said Black Lives Matter is “a valid movement” and that his police department needs to to “acknowledge … [our] badge didn’t always stand for what it stands for today.”

    According to San Jose Inside, Garcia said the Second Amendment is “very important” but “obviously very polarizing,” too. He added:

    I agree with the right to bear arms, but I equally believe in the limitations that have been placed by our courts. One aspect that I find interesting is that the Second Amendment was adopted in the late 1700s. I wonder if today’s modern weaponry were available then, if that amendment would look the same. I suspect not.
