Virginia: York County Board of Supervisors Approves Site Plan Update for Lafayette Gun Club
On September 17, the York County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve Lafayette Gun Club’s application for a site plan update. This application included a request to make modest facilities upgrades that will allow them to better serve the shooting community in York County.

The impossibility of gun control
The Navy Yard massacre won’t revive the gun debate in Congress for a simple reason. There is no gun control agenda this side of a total ban and confiscation that would have stopped Aaron Alexis. The Toomey-Manchin bill could have passed Congress unanimously. The assault weapons ban could still be in place. Gun-controllers could have achieved their long-ago goal of barring the private purchase of handguns. And every step of his mayhem at the Washington Navy Yard would have been unimpeded.

Convenience store owner fights off armed robbers, WHIO, Dayton, Ohio 09/15/13, 09/16/13
Two men, at least one of whom was armed with a gun, entered the 3rd Base Drive Thru convenience store in Dayton, Ohio and attempted to rob the store. Store owner Thomas Mauro was in an office in the rear of the store when he spotted the pair on a surveillance feed. Mauro retrieved a gun and fired at the criminals, striking one in the chest and causing both to flee. The wounded robber only made it to the restaurant next door before collapsing. When interviewed by a local media outlet, Dayton Police Lieutenant Donald Burden stated that it is unlikely the store owner will face charges.

Florida: Sarasota County Legislative Delegation Opposes Repealing “Stand Your Ground” Statute
Yesterday, the Sarasota City Commission met with the Sarasota County Legislative Delegation to present the city’s list of legislative priorities. One of those priorities requested the legislative delegation to work to repeal Florida’s “Stand your Ground” statute.

California: Governor Must Hear Your Opposition to ALL Anti-Gun and Anti-Hunting Bills
With several severe anti-gun bills and one egregious anti-hunting bill on his desk for consideration, Governor Jerry Brown (D) MUST hear the VETO request of every law-abiding Californian DAILY. Governor Brown needs to know that the liberal media has it wrong and that California has hundreds of thousands of law-abiding gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters as residents and voters. Governor Brown has until October 13 to make his decision on the bills listed below.

Sen. Blumenthal (D-Conn.) uses tragedy to call for gun control
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut Democrat, said that he hopes Monday’s shooting at the Washington Navy Yard will reinvigorate the debate about gun control on Capitol Hill.

New Jersey: Sweeney says 'centerpiece' gun control bill is dead after conditional veto
State Senate President Stephen Sweeney said today that his bill to overhaul the way New Jersey issues firearms ID cards, which he considered the centerpiece of a gun control package, is effectively dead after Gov. Chris Christie last month gutted it and sent it back to the Legislature.

Addled by the AR-15
In the media, and to a lesser extent in the country at large, the AR-15 rifle serves as a totem and a fetish. It is the gun whose name everybody knows; the stuff of nightmares and of fantasies; perhaps the most loved and most hated object in a country of plenty. And, all told, that’s really quite silly.So sure were the horrified darlings of the gun-control salon that an AR-15 had played a part in the abomination at Navy Yard that many felt compelled to insert one into the story, front and center.

Blame the homicidal maniac, not the guns
It is painful and tragic that 12 hardworking people at the Washington Navy Yard went to work Monday and never came home. Aaron Alexis shot 29 people before the police were able to stop him. President Obama and his allies in the liberal media jumped to blame the weapons, but there is not a single gun-control law that could have prevented that horrific massacre.
