Gun poll: 7 in 10 feel safer in an armed neighborhood
An overwhelming seven in 10 Americans say they would feel safer living in a neighborhood where individuals could own a gun for self defense, the latest indication that support for comprehensive gun control is fading. Rasmussen Reports found that 68 percent of voters polled would feel safer in an armed neighborhood. Just 23 percent said they'd feel safer in “a neighborhood where nobody was allowed to own a gun.”

Court deals blow to SAFE Act
The ruling by Chief U.S. District Judge William Skretny in Buffalo found New York’s law, called the SAFE Act, doesn’t infringe on Second Amendment rights. But the judge tossed a provision that allows only seven bullets in a magazine, saying the number is “arbitrary.”

90-year-old store owner stops robber, The Dayton Daily News, Ohio, 12/31/13
90-year-old George Hicks was working at the laundromat he owns in Dayton, Ohio when a man came into the store and asked for change for a five dollar bill.

When asked about his experience by a local news outlet, Hicks stated, “Why get scared? I’ve got the gun and he’s running… It was just funny.”

Florida: URGENT! HELP NEEDED -- SB-448 -- Threat of Force to Stop Attackers
Senate Bill 448 by Senator Greg Evers is on the agenda for the Senate Criminal Justice Committee Meeting on Wednesday, January 8, at 9:00am. We need you to contact members of this Committee IMMEDIATELY. SB-448 by Senator Greg Evers is a bill to stop abusive prosecutors from using 10-20-LIFE to prosecute people who, in self-defense, threaten to use deadly force against an attacker as a means to stop an attack. Some anti-gun, anti-self-defense prosecutors have been abusing the 10-20-LIFE law to prosecute average citizens who displayed a weapon or gun in self-defense to make an attacker back off. Average citizens who never would have been in the system if they had not been attacked and in fear for their own safety, are being persecuted and prosecuted for defending themselves. Because citizens took responsibility for their own safety, some prosecutors treat them like criminals.

2013: Fewest police deaths involving firearms since 1887

Nation’s first gun reregistration law in effect in D.C., may lead to arrest and confiscation
For the first time in the United States, a citizen who has legally registered a gun will have to submit to a renewal process. The consequences of not knowing about this new law or missing the specific 60-day window are dire.Starting on Jan. 2, every single D.C. resident who has registered a firearm since 1976 must go to police headquarters to pay a $48 fee and be photographed and fingerprinted. The Metropolitan Police Department estimates there are at least 30,000 registered gun owners.

Confusion surrounds fledgling New York gun law
Next month, major components of the so-called NY SAFE Act, the state’s tough gun-control law approved in January, are supposed to take effect. But some gun owners and businesses are still unclear about what parts of the law will be enforced on schedule.

Book Review: ‘Gun Control in the Third Reich’
“Gun control caused the Holocaust.” That’s an argument, rather unhelpfully phrased, that American gun-rights supporters have been making for decades.There’s no way to prove it. In fact, most of the time it’s not even clear what alternate history is being suggested. Are we talking about a world in which the Nazis behaved exactly the way they did, but inexplicably allowed their victims to remain armed? A world in which, as the Nazis came to power, Germany already had a widespread and passionate gun culture like America’s?Unfortunately, this bold assertion obscures very serious questions about the role disarmament can play in oppression. And at last we have the historical information we need to investigate those questions, in the form of Second Amendment lawyer Stephen P. Halbrook’s “Gun Control in the Third Reich.” It is the most extensive history to date of Nazi Germany’s policies on firearms, drawing largely on original documents.

Fast and Furious gun turns up after Mexican resort shootout
A dramatic shootout between authorities and suspected cartel gunmen at a Mexican seaside resort this month has ties to a botched U.S. gun operation.

Thanks for nothing, Colorado: Magpul gun firm relocating to Texas, Wyoming
ERIE, Colo. — Magpul Industries, a firearms-accessories maker, announced Thursday that it will relocate its extensive manufacturing facilities to Texas and Wyoming, in angry response to the Colorado legislature’s passage of sweeping gun-control legislation in 2013.

SAFE Act decision highlights embarrassing mistakes by gun controllers in a hurry
A year ago New York legislators approved gun controls championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo so quickly that they did not have time to read the bill, let alone debate it. Cuomo nevertheless insisted that the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act "was not hastily put together." The embarrassing mistakes and omissions that prompted multiple amendments during the year that followed Cuomo's victory suggested otherwise. So does this week's decision by U.S. District Judge William Skretny, who overturned several provisions of the SAFE Act that reflect the unseemly haste with which the law was enacted.
