    The Hill ^ | 03/23/18 | John Bowden
    President Trump on Friday announced that the Department of Justice would issue a new rule banning bump stocks. In a tweet, Trump announced that he was directing DOJ to reverse a 2010 decision by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive (ATF) that classified bump stocks as firearm parts so the devices could be banned under current laws that prohibit owning fully automatic weapons. Trump blamed the legalization of bump stocks on the Obama administration. "Obama Administration legalized bump stocks. BAD IDEA. As I promised, today the Department of Justice will issue the rule banning BUMP STOCKS with a...

    In 2017, when I visited Australia, Donald Eykamp had an ongoing appeal at the New South Wales Supreme Court. That case has been resolved. The decision came down on 18 December 2017. I was unable to obtain a copy of the decision until after I had returned to Australia. I carefully read the decision, then conferred with an Australian barrister. The decision was a disaster for gun owners. It gave the New South Wales Police everything they asked for. Then, it gave them things they did not ask for.For a while, the politics looked promising. The New South Wales...

    Bank of America further solidified its corporate position in favor of gun control after sponsoring an anti-gun discussion hosted by Axios on Friday. Axios co-founder Mike Allen facilitated the talk between activist and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg and Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. The event, held in Washington, D.C., occurred at 8 a.m. and had no outside sponsors beside BoA. Despite the fact that it was billed as a conversation “on gun safety in America,” there was virtually no disagreement between Hogg and Blumenthal on policy. Allen asked Hogg what “the biggest mistake the media...

    Students and families from Parkland, Fla., were transported to Washington, D.C., ahead of the “March for Our Lives” against gun violence this Saturday with the help of the New England Patriots. On Thursday, team owner Robert Kraft provided the team’s official plane to fly the families of the 17 victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and some of the students who were injured to the nation’s capital for the event, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said. James said Kraft decided to lend the plane to those affected by the shooting after former Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords and her...

    Actor and comedian Bill Murray penned an op-ed Thursday comparing the Parkland shooting survivors to the students “who helped end the Vietnam War.” Writing for NBC News THINK, Mr. Murray drew parallels between the Parkland students and the Vietnam War student protesters who spurred the antiwar movement of the 1960s. “I was thinking, looking at the kids in Parkland, Florida who have started these anti-gun protests, that it really was the students that began the end of the Vietnam War,” Mr. Murray wrote. “It was the students who made all the news, and that noise started, and then the movement...

    From the West African country of Mali comes a story of an isolated village where the locals have banded together to fight off terrorists with whatever they have. Mali has been in the midst of a low-key war since 2012 that started off with Tuareg rebels fighting the government and transitioned to an international effort led by a 4,000-strong French military force (the country was a French colony until 1960) squaring off with a trio of wannabe Al-Qaeda jihadist groups in an ongoing asymmetric war pitting Western airpower against increasingly aggressive militants. However, according to the above report from France24,...
  • Oregon Initiative Seeks To Ban Semiautomatic Rifles, Mandate Current Owners To Turn Them Over

    In Oregon, a new initiative from a religious group is taking it a step forward. They want to ban any semiautomatic rifle with a detachable magazine, and that can hold more than ten rounds. They also want current owners of these firearms, law-abiding Americans, to take them out of the state, register them, sell it to a FFL dealer, destroy it, or turn them over. That’s right, folks—full-blown gun confiscation. Right now, the anti-gun church group is collecting signatures. The hope is that they fall short (via KGW8):

    Well, maybe NBC will be shocked to learn that 58% of Americans believe gun ownership increases safety. The rest of will wonder what the other 42% might be thinking: Nearly six-in-10 Americans say that gun ownership increases safety, even as a plurality of respondents support gun-control organizations, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. … In the poll, 58 percent agree with the statement that gun ownership does more to increase safety by allowing law-abiding citizens to protect themselves. By contrast, 38 percent say that gun ownership reduces safety by giving too many people access to firearms, increasing...

    Dick’s Sporting Goods has suffered a surprisingly steep downturn in sales since promising to sell fewer guns, but the problem isn’t the gun sales, Fortune says. Stock tumbled to the lowest in four months after the sports store banned assault-style weapons from its Field & Stream stores and raised the minimum age for a customer to buy a firearm from 18 to 21.... “There’s going to be some pushback and we expected that,” said CEO Edward Stack, in an earnings call with Wall Street analysts, according to CNN. “There are going to be the people who don’t shop us anymore...

    “Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.” Except that now Han Solo isn’t sporting his famous blaster in newly released character shot posters. The revamped posters have removed all of the weapons from the characters, leaving them to look a little… odd. Clearly something is missing from the designs. They look very off. Here’s Han Solo and friends with their weapons… And without… According to Movie Web, the change comes both after controversy surrounding alleged plagiarism by the freelance artist and controversy about gun control in the aftermath of the Parkland,...

    The .22 Short was developed back in 1857 for Smith & Wesson revolver. Created for the metallic cartridge with a 29-30 grain bullet, pushed by 4 grains of black powder. This was mainly developed for self-defense, nowadays this cartridge has little penetration and knockdown power. So how low in caliber should one go before your personal defense firearm is too light? Youtuber mark3smle did some ballistic gelatin test with this .22 Short. Overall the .22 penetrated 4 inches through a pair of pants into the gelatin. mark3smle goes onto comparing a knife penetration could do the job as well. Theres...

    GWP links to DailyWire: Recently, a left-wing activist at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School accused the NRA of being "pathetic f***ers that want to keep killing our children," adding that they could have the blood of murdered children on their faces but they wouldn't do anything because they are somehow greedy. In an interview with The Outline, David Hogg attacked pro-gun politicians and the NRA, saying, "It just makes me think what sick f***ers out there want to continue to sell more guns, murder more children, and honestly just get reelected." "What type of s***ty person does that?" Hogg continued....

    A prominently displayed sign at all three Tombstone Unified School District campuses is getting a lot of attention. The decision to post a warning at the entrance of the school sites — “Some TUSD staff may be armed and will use whatever force necessary to protect our students” — was made by TUSD Superintendent Robert Devere. “This is nothing more than one small piece of school safety that we have in place on our campuses,” Devere said. “We’re interested in keeping our kids safe. What I’ve seen on Facebook has been overwhelmingly positive.” Check back for more updates, and read...

    When students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas return to class after spring break next week, they'll be required to carry clear backpacks. The move is meant to ramp up security measures after last month's deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida, and a series of breaches since. "Clear backpacks are the only backpacks that will be permitted on campus," said Broward County School Superintendent Robert Runcie said in a letter sent to parents. The district will provide the bags for free, he said. In addition to the new backpack policy, students and school staff will be required to wear IDs at all times...

    A California father is boiling mad, demanding to know who authorized 12-year-old children to walk out of their middle-school classes for an anti-gun protest last week. The father, identified as John Gunn, videotaped his confrontation with Anacapa Middle School Principal Barbara Boggio, with the Ventura Unified School District in Ventura, California. He posted the video on Facebook after young kids left class last Wednesday for the National School Walkout. Gunn said the school never told him that the students would be allowed to leave class. “I want to know who authorized these kids to go out and leave the class...

    For too many years, in too many places, our country has seen acts of gun violence that have resulted in heartbreaking losses. We are all too familiar with them and there is no need to recount them here. Over the same amount of time, we have waited for our grief to turn into action and see our nation adopt common-sense measures that would help prevent firearms from getting into the wrong hands. That action has sadly never come and as the weeks pass after the most recent mass shooting, it appears we are stuck in the same cycle of tragedy...

    Global bank Citi is starting a new commercial firearms policy within the U.S. "to do our part as a company to prevent firearms from getting into the wrong hands," the company said today. The new policy requires its new retail sector clients and partners to follow several practices: not sell guns to someone who didn't pass a background check; not sell bump stocks and high-capacity magazines; and not sell guns to people under 21 years old. Ed Skyler, Citi's head of global public affairs, said Citi has a few relationships with companies that manufacture guns, and for those relationships, "We...
