Ruger MAX-9

From The Truth About Guns:

With an onboard capacity of 10+1 rounds flush fit and 12+1 rounds extended, Ruger’s new MAX-9 takes aim at the incredibly hot market for micro-compact pistols with double-digit capacities. Equipped with a tritium and fiber optic front sight and an optics-ready slide at an MSRP of just $499 (less on Brownells), the MAX-9 undercuts the competition on features for the dollar.

New Shield Plus Holds 13+1 Rounds

From Guns.com:

The new 9mm M&P Shield Plus, which comes in both standard and Performance Center models, comes with 10- and 13-round mags while keeping the same traditional frame – and therefore holster – size as the legacy Shields. Other new additions are an updated and optimized grip texture and redesigned trigger. S&W says the flat-face trigger will give users a consistent trigger finger placement allowing for more accurate and repeatable shooting, while the new stippling on the grip texture allows the user to manage recoil, keep a firm grip, and not irritate the skin while carrying concealed.

Black Man Scared To Carry Because Of Media Hype

From USA Today:

It has become clear to me that open carry and concealed carry are white privileges — permit or not. Despite having a license: I am afraid of being killed by police if I carry a gun in public.
I have good reason to be afraid. In 2016 in Minnesota, a Black school cafeteria worker named Philando Castile was killed during a routine traffic stop after merely mentioning the fact that he was legally in possession of a concealed firearm. Tamir Rice, a 12-year old Black boy in Ohio, an open carry state, was fatally shot by police in just seconds for holding a toy gun in 2014. That same year, John Crawford III was slain in a Walmart holding a BB gun that was for sale in the store.
There are too many more to mention.

What Can You Do To Protect Your Vehicle?

From US Law Shield:

Imagine – you’re getting ready to walk out of the grocery store and head towards your car in the parking lot. To your surprise, when you exit the store, you see that a violent mob has descended on the parking lot and is vandalizing vehicles. What can you do? What should you do? What if this happens in your driveway at home, rather than a public place? What rights do you have to defend your vehicle and property? These are more complicated questions than you might think.

Armed Customers Fend Off Attack

From Bearing Arms:

Authorities say after the suspect fired into the front of the bar, he then walked to the rear of the building, where several armed citizens confronted him and exchanged fire. None of the armed citizens were injured in that volley, and the suspect and his two friends fled the area after being met with the armed response.

SPLC Attacks Stand Your Ground Laws

From Ricochet:

The nonsense from the Southern Poverty Law Center continues. The SPLC, which doesn’t actually do poverty law because it’s too busy labeling everyone with insufficient melanin in their skin as racist, would like to turn back the clock on Stand Your Ground laws. In a new report, they claim with no real evidence or analysis, that the laws promote killings of blacks by whites. This is nonsense, and they know it. But it comes at the perfect time: with police running from constant assault and the rest of the country being told that only black lives matter. You almost have to admire their moxie.

Police Aren’t Required To Protect You

From The Truth About Guns:

Of course powerful, wealthy, politically-connected elites are exceptions, routinely obtaining the rare and coveted unrestricted handgun carry licenses that are unavailable to the average citizen.
And criminals don’t obey handgun licensing rules or any other state or city law pertaining to firearms, so they don’t care how many laws the city enacts. This hasn’t changed and never will.
But it’s deeply troubling to believe New York City’s harsh, even despotic handgun licensing scheme continues to escape constitutional scrutiny, a point Halbrook makes at the outset of his article, when he states,

“‘Under New York law, it is a crime to possess a firearm’, held the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in U.S. vs. Sanchez-Villar (2004). This ruling was based on the state’s ban on the possession of an unlicensed handgun. This prohibition did not offend the Second Amendment, said this ruling, because ‘the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.’ Later rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court—D.C v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010—begged to differ. . . . But the Second Circuit must not have gotten the memo. . . .”

Maryland Gun Stores Challenge Law On Customers’ Behalf

From Reason:

So the Fourth Circuit held today in Maryland Shall Issue v. Hogan, in an opinion written by Judge Steven Agee and joined by Judges Barbara Keenan and Julius Richardson. The court cited Supreme Court cases that allowed alcohol stores to assert their prospective customers’ Equal Protection Clause rights in challenging sex-discriminatory drinking ages, and contraceptive sellers to assert their prospective customers’ substantive due process rights. The district court will now need to consider whether the Maryland law is consistent with the Second Amendment.
