Senator Chuckie Schumer wants to continue the ban on undetectable guns.

Do the right thing in Ohio and you may end up in jail with your weapon confiscated.  An Ohio man will finally get his legally-owned pistol back nine months after police confiscated it following his controversial arrest in February.  He was never convicted of any crimes and his arrest occurred after he called police to report a potential crime in progress.  The city of Cleveland reportedly agreed this week to settle the federal lawsuit filed by Derrick Washington over what he says was the illegal seizure of his .38-caliber handgun. Police had refused to return his gun even after a city prosecutor refused to press charges due to a lack of evidence.

We have some friends in the San Francisco PD.   Gun rights advocates challenged a newly signed San Francisco law that bans ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds and gives owners 90 days to hand them over to police.  The San Francisco Veteran Police Officers Association, represented by attorneys from the National Rifle Association, filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against the ammunition limit signed Nov. 8 by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, a Democrat.  (More here)

“There are lots of bad guys and gangs out there with guns coming out of their ears,” said plaintiff Larry Barsetti, who retired in 2003 after 32 years with the San Francisco Police Department. “What leads people to believe if you put law-abiding citizens at a disadvantage by limiting their magazine rounds, that somehow that makes them safer?”

Chris sent this in to the show’s Facebook page, and we have been seeing it pop up all over the place.  Police are still trying to piece together the events of Monday night after a woman was attacked and then fired shots into the crowd of teens that assaulted her.  Beulah Montgomery, who just turned 60 yesterday, says she was walking home after purchasing lottery tickets when she says a group of teens, 7 of them, approached her. Montgomery initally thought they were going to attempt to steal her purse but says she was instead hit by one of the individuals as a second attempted to hit her. That’s when she grabbed her gun.

“All I could feel was pain and I said to myself I had made it to 60 and I wanted to at least see 61,” she recalled. “Then I started praying and I asked the Lord to guide my hands” Montgomery says she then reached into her purse and and shot in the direction of the teens and they started to flee. However two of them didn’t make without being hit. 

Second DGU- Lexington [KY] police say a would-be robber was foiled Friday afternoon when he was shot by the owner of the Marathon Food Mart. The shooting was self-defense, and the owner was not charged, said Lt. Mark Brand. Brand did not release the identity of the owner or the man who was shot. The injured man was taken to University of Chandler Hospital, and will be in police custody… The owner of Marathon is protected under the castle doctrine, which says a person is not obligated to retreat from somebody breaking into their home or vehicle. The 2006 law says someone is entitled to use deadly force if they “had reason to believe that an unlawful and forcible entry or unlawful and forcible act was occurring or had occurred.” It also applies if a person is attacked in a public place “where he or she has a right to be.” Roberts said self-defense situations aren’t rare and are seen when people are trying to protect themselves or their property…

From Michael
I found your comments on Derringer type pistols to be spot on.  In the stressful event of a lethal force self defense encounter I would much rather have a weapon that has a higher capacity than two rounds. In addition, the manual of arms required to operated this type of firearm is cumbersome under the best of conditions. Every Derringer type pistol I have encountered requires the hammer to manually cocked followed by a very hard trigger pull to discharge the firearm. This complexity would only be compounded in a stressful situation.   This is just my opinion so take it for what it is worth.
Thank you for producing one of my favorite podcast.
