Kentucky Senate Gets Behind Constitutional Carry in a Big Way

The right to bear arms just got a big boost in The Bluegrass State.

Second Amendment

While there is certainly a long way to go in order to ensure that our Second Amendment rights don’t disappear, Kentucky is covering some ground this week in that struggle.

In liberal locales the nation over, gun grabs are all the rage.  So-called “red flag” laws are sending police to confiscate guns from American citizens, with some of these supposedly sovereign Americans feeling so threatened by the gun-grab that they are choosing to utilize their right to bear arms in defense of the freedom itself.

From November:

Two police officers ordered to remove firearms from a house on a “red flag” protective order fatally shot an armed man Monday morning in Ferndale, Maryland, police said. Anne Arundel County Police arrived at the house at 5:17 a.m. to remove guns from the home under a new law that temporarily allows for the seizure of firearms if a person shows “red flags” that they are a danger to themselves or others, CBS Baltimore reports.

A man, later identified by police as 61-year-old Gary Willis, answered his door with a gun in his hand, Anne Arundel County Police Sgt. Jacklyn Davis said.

Sgt. Davis said the man put the gun down. But then, according to a police press release, Willis “became irate” when officers attempted to serve the order. Willis picked the weapon up again, “a fight ensued over the gun,” and a shot was fired, Davis said. The first shot didn’t strike anyone, but the officers then fatally shot the man, Sgt. Davis said.

Neither of the officers were injured. Their names weren’t released.

In Kentucky, on the other hand, the State Senate has approved a legislative maneuver that would strengthen the Second Amendment by allowing for “Constitutional Carry”.

The summary of Senate Bill 150 says the objective is to “create a new section of Chapter 237 to allow concealed deadly weapons to be carried by persons age 21 and over without a license in same locations where concealed carry license holders may carry them.”

Currently, Kentuckians have to have a permit to carry concealed, which is given by their local sheriff’s office after they have taken and passed a class.

SB 150 is scheduled to be heard in the Kentucky state Senate Veterans, Military Affairs, & Public Protection Committee on February 14.

The concept of Constitutional Carry is gaining ground in America as of late, with several states moving in the direction of an unfettered right to bear arms.

Republicans Chastise President Without Mentioning His Name, After He Won’t Commit To Peaceful Transfer Of Power

Published

on

A handful of individuals in the GOP were not too happy with President Trump for refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power should Joe Biden win the November election. Leading the pack were Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Steve Stivers of Ohio. All three of these individuals took to social media to rebuke Trump, though none of them actually mentioned him by name, probably in an attempt to continue putting on an air of solidarity. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Fundamental to democracy is the peaceful transition of power; without that, there is Belarus. Any suggestion that a president might not respect this Constitutional guarantee is both unthinkable and unacceptable,” said Romney, who has long been at odds with the president. https://twitter.com/MittRomney/status/1308932877229477890 “The peaceful transfer of power is enshrined in our Constitution and fundamental to the survival of our Republic. America’s leaders swear an oath to the Constitution. We will uphold that oath,” said Cheney, the third-ranking Republican in the House. At the White House, the president was asked by a reporter if he would “commit here today for a peaceful transferal of power after the November election” during Wednesday’s press briefing. The president didn’t answer affirmatively. “We’re going to have to see what happens. You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster,” the president said. “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.” Immediately, leftists all over Twitter have pounced on his comments to try and twist them to make the president look as if he’s wanting to go full dictator here, and get rid of voting altogether so he can stay in power.

Suspect In Shooting Of Louisville Police Officers Arrested In Wake Of Violent Protests

Published

on

It was announced yesterday that there would be no formal charges brought against the Louisville police officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor, and as you can probably guess, Black Lives Matter protesters immediately took to the streets and stuff got pretty violent real quick. In fact, two police officers were shot, though thankfully the injuries they sustained were not life threatening. A man has been arrested in connection with the shootings. Here’s more from Fox News: A suspect accused in shooting two Louisville police officers during protests Wednesday evening has also been identified. Larynzo Johnson, 26, has been charged with wanton endangerment and assault of a police officer. He will be arraigned Friday. Johnson “intentionally used a handgun to fire multiple bullets at officers” addressing the crowd, the complaint said. Two officers were struck by bullets causing serious physical injury. Police said witnesses spotted Johnson firing a handgun at officers and running from the scene. The complaint said he was also in possession of a handgun at the time of his arrest and law enforcement recovered video of the shooting showing the suspect fire at officers. Police stated that some businesses were looted early Thursday morning, because hey, nothing says “fighting inequality” like robbing stores owned by people who have absolutely nothing to do with your alleged grievances. It’s never okay to riot, loot, or burn other people’s property to the ground. That doesn’t make you a “freedom fighter” it makes you a criminal, a terrorist. This is what Black Lives Matter doesn’t seem to understand. Or they do understand, but simply don’t care. Let’s hope no further incidents of violence occur and police are actually allowed to do their jobs and quell the madness before someone gets killed.
