    Homeowner holds criminal at gunpoint until police arrive, KABC, Los Angeles, Calif. 01/05/15
    Jeff Preach was at home in Castaic, Calif. when a man knocked at his front door. Preach answered the door and had a brief conversation with the man before the stranger punched him in the face, went inside the house, and attempted to rob him. Preach tackled the intruder with the help of his friend Larry Bensell. Once Bensell had the criminal under control, Preach went to another part of the home and retrieved a shotgun. Preach proceeded to hold the thief at gunpoint until police could arrive. (KABC, Los Angeles, Calif. 01/05/15)

    New Jersey: State Police propose tighter restrictions for gun industry
    The new rules would require dealers to immediately notify state and local police if their security systems fail. If a system cannot be fixed within 24 hours, the dealer may move the guns to another licensed location with approval of the State Police.The proposal would require no guns or ammunition be stored at a location other than the licensed premises without permission from State Police. Also, dealers would have to report lost or stolen guns within 24 hours, down from the current 48 hours.

    Retired U.S. Customs agent fights off home intruder
    Retired U.S. Customs agent Thomas Schenk returned to his home in Amboy, Wash. to find it ransacked. Schenk, a Right-to-Carry permit holder, drew a gun, searched the house, and found a man in his living room. The intruder spotted the Schenk, fled to a bedroom and pointed a gun at the former agent. A shootout ensued that eventually moved outside the home and prompted the criminal to flee. Police captured the thief several days later. Following the incident, Schenk told a local media outlet, “I spent 25 years as a federal agent and had occasionally drawn my weapon under various circumstances, but never had to fire it… To have to fire in my own home, it was just hard to fathom.” Schenk added, “We all get lulled into a false sense of security and if nothing happens, that's great… But in the event something does occur, nowadays you can't trust that everything is going to be all right. I'm thankful I was able to refer to my training and keep a clear head.” (The Oregonian, Portland, Ore. 01/05/15)

    VA raises concerns about gun registry with offer of free gun locks
    As President Obama dodges a reminder of the veterans’ health-care scandal this week, the Department of Veterans Affairs is offering free gun locks to veterans if they provide details on the number of guns they own and their home address, raising concerns about a government-run gun registry.

    National Review
    The Surgeon General’s Gun Problem
    Will America’s new surgeon general preach for gun control, as three of his predecessors did? Early signs nurture cautious optimism that he won’t, but nagging doubts remain. Two days after his confirmation, the website of Dr. Vivek Murthy’s eagerly progressive organization Doctors for America (formerly Doctors for Obama) was updated to reflect his new status as America’s doctor. The advocacy group’s multi-page gun-control campaign was scrubbed from the home page and buried in a menu that doesn’t even mention firearms (click on the “Learn” dropdown menu heading). And Murthy promised wary senators during his February Senate-confirmation hearing (at 50:54 in this video) that he would not use his new position as a bully pulpit for gun control.

    <- Why there aren't any school shootings in Israel!
    Teacher with long gun slung over her shoulder!!!

    440,000 people killed every year due to "medical mistakes"! Don't you think he Murthy should get his own house in order before taking on guns since they take less then 10% as many lives?

    I'd love to see Hickenlooper's anti-gun stance thrown back in his face by his own legislature. They went too far with the citizens of Colorado, sounds like the citizens are fighting back. I hope they win and I hope this sends a clear message to anti-gun, anti-freedom folks here like Kitzhaber and his anti-gun buddies in the state legislature.
