It’s news from New Jersey and Colorado, proposed legislation regarding zero tolerance policies, and more, this week on Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
Congressman Steve Stockman (TX) stops by to discuss his recently introduced bill, H.R. 2625, the “Student Protection Act.” Says Stockman, “Too often so-called “zero tolerance” policies are being abused by school authorities to punish children for innocent play or, worse, try to indoctrinate them to be terrified of anything even shaped like a gun. Instead of nurturing young minds these policies are traumatizing children who did nothing wrong or instilling in them irrational fears.” Read more about it here:http://stockman.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/stockman-seeks-to-block-enforcement-of-policies-that-punish-innocent
Attorney Even Nappen (http://www.evannappen.com/) drops in with news about his latest win: He was granted a hearing in front of the New Jersey Supreme Court in regards to his client’s Second Amendment rights, (the last Second Amendment hearing in New Jersey’s Supreme Court was 45 years ago).

Shults Media Relations, a PR agency out of Colorado (http://www.smrpr.com/), deals with many firearms and shooting sports clients. Owner Jim Shults recently sent out a different type of press release, detailing his recent experience with local law enforcement over a permit request to discharge his BB gun in his Grand Junction, CO, neighborhood in a quest to rid the area of some doves. The request was denied, which Shults didn’t protest. It was when the Chief of Police sent copies of his denial letter to the Deputy Chief of Police, Grand Junction’s police Patrol Commanders and the city’s 911 Center, that Shults started questioning the process and protested what he thinks is “flagging”.
