California's Triggerman — C.D. 'Chuck' Michel
AmmoLand
C.D. "Chuck" Michel won big against what he calls the "gun grabbers" last February when a three-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a trial court ruling in one of the most significant Second Amendment cases of his career. Not only did the 2-1 majority invalidate San Diego County’s restrictive policy for obtaining a concealed-carry handgun permit, it went on to declare that the personal right to keep and bear arms extends outside the home. Michel, a Long Beach-based contract attorney for the California Rifle and Pistol Association, has been the lead plaintiffs attorney in Peruta v. San Diego since April 2010.

VETERANS ISSUES


Helping military veterans avoid the criminal justice system
By Mark Bond
The Veterans Administration reports that 1 in 5 U.S. military combat veterans has shown symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Our nation has yet to see the full extent of what 13 years of war has done to these combat veterans' long-term mental health. Our nation has asked these warriors to go to war to fight terrorism and bring the fight to the enemy in their own front yard. Now that they have returned from war and are resuming their civilian lives, they still carry the invisible scars of facing war.

In some cases existing models have been reduced in size, and in others entirely new handguns have been developed.
