    An Arkansas House committee advanced a measure Tuesday to exempt college sporting events from a state law allowing guns after the Southeastern Conference appealed for guns to be banned from facilities such as football stadiums. Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed the new state law last week allowing concealed handguns at colleges, government buildings, some bars and even the State Capitol.

    Virginia Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe just put a lot of innocent lives in his state at risk.  On Friday, he vetoed a bill that would have allowed victims of domestic violence, who have a protective order to carry a firearm concealed for up to 45 days without a permit. House Bill 1852 would recognize that a person who has a protective order and is over 21 years of age to carry their gun concealed for up to 45 days after they receive the order.  Additionally, it would give the person another 45 days if they chose to apply for a permanent...

    Hidden handguns could be legally carried without a license in Wisconsin under a far-reaching, Republican-backed proposal unveiled Tuesday. The bill would also allow licensed concealed carry permit holders to bring firearms into places where they are currently barred, including school buildings, unless signs are posted prohibiting them. "We're just removing the barrier of the concealed carry permit to give them their constitutional right," said the bill's co-sponsor, Republican Rep. Mary Felzkowski of Irma. She and Sen. Dave Craig, a Republican from Big Bend, began circulating the measure on Tuesday for co-sponsors.

When they arrived, they found the three dead suspects and two uninjured residents. Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Nick Mahoney said the suspects enetered the home through a glass back door with the intent to burglarize it. It was not immediately clear why they picked that home. Mahoney said the suspects...

    In this age of waxing laws and waning freedoms, a notable exception to the pattern of ever-tightening restrictions is gun prohibitions. New Hampshire no longer requires a license for the carrying of a concealed, loaded firearm; Florida is considering eliminating all “gun-free zones” (e.g., at schools); and Iowa may institute a “Stand your ground” provision and lower the age at which children could use handguns, to cite a few examples.

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 22 mar 2017 | Firmin DeBrabander
    The National Rifle Association spent a record amount to support Donald Trump's winning presidential campaign — upward of $30 million. While this investment looks wise now, recall that not long ago it was the height of insanity. Trump's campaign seemed doomed — but the NRA doubled down on its risky bet anyway, which threatened to marginalize it and undermine it politically. I believe this bet testifies to the NRA's desperation. This sounds odd, I realize, when you consider how the gun lobby is racking up legislative victories — expanding "campus carry" and permitless concealed-carry gun laws at the state level,...

    The much-heralded Australian gun confiscation scheme of the late 1990s failed to disarm criminals to such a degree that Australia is going after guns again, beginning in July of this year. In other words, the gun confiscation scheme Hillary Clinton praised on October 16, 2016, as “worth looking at” for gun policy in America actually created an uneven playing field where law-abiding citizens turned in their guns while criminals retained theirs. The NRA-ILA reports: In a tacit admission that criminals and scofflaws have had little trouble circumventing Australia’s National Firearms Agreement (NFA) and the government’s confiscation effort, Australian officials have...

    During the 8 years he was president, Barack Obama’s administration experienced an explosion in gun sales, with annual background checks more than doubling between 2008 and 2016. In the eighteen months leading up to the 2016 election, gun sales set one new record after another. So when a pro-Second Amendment candidate won the election most observers figured that gun sales would at last begin to drop. But it hasn’t worked out that way. Conventional wisdom held that the sharp rise in gun sales over the course of Obama’s presidency was supposedly driven, at least in part, by the threat of...

I did a bit of research, and found an advertisement for the Swift Scirocco II. The ad copy touted a newly...

    The Obama administration had numerous opportunities to arrest Mexican drug and weapons traffickers before the murder of a federal U.S. agent and the seriously wounding of his partner but opted for the hands-off approach, a new federal audit reveals. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which operates under the Department of Justice (DOJ), should have stopped the traffickers—members of the Los Zetas organization—long before the Immigration and Customs (ICE) agents were ambushed in Mexico with firearms smuggled south of the border thanks to a once-secret Obama administration gun-running operation.

    Watch as Full Mag Youtuber fires a Finnish Lahti L-39 anti-tank gun at 16 1/4 inch steel plates spaced out between 4 inches. Using armor piercing Tungsten rounds to see how many steel it can punch through. The weapon utilizes skis and a special bipod to stabilize the recoil. The Lahti L-39 is a Finnish 20 mm anti-tank rifle used during the Second World War. It had excellent accuracy, penetration and range, but its size made transportation difficult. It was nicknamed “Norsupyssy” ("Elephant Gun"), and as tanks developed armour too thick for the Lahti to penetrate its uses switched to...

    Telecommunications giants like Verizon and AT&T will not have to take “reasonable measures” to ensure that their customers’ Social Security numbers, web browsing history and other personal information are not stolen or accidentally released. Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase will not be punished, at least for now, for not collecting extra money from customers to cover potential losses from certain kinds of high-risk trades that helped unleash the 2008 financial crisis. And Social Security Administration data will no longer be used to try to block individuals with disabling mental health issues from buying handguns, nor will...

    A barber in South Omaha, Nebraska is grateful he was carrying his gun after a man with a shotgun attempted to rob him. Jesse Galvan and his brother were cutting hair on Saturday afternoon with a line of people waiting to have their hair cut.  That's when a man entered Fadekings Barbershop around 9:45am, according to KETV. The armed robber came in while Galvan and his brother were taking care of patrons, tossed a backpack on the floor and demanded that they all empty their pockets. "It was so fast, so, so fast," Said Galvan's brother, David.  "When he cocked the...

    On Tuesday, President Trump signed the repeal of Barack Obama’s gun ban for Social Security recipients. On Thursday, NBC News reported that Trump had signed a repeal of “gun checks for people with mental illness.” This is Fake News 101, inasmuch as it takes Trump’s commitment to defend the Second Amendment and reports it as something that endangers the American people by allowing mentally ill persons to acquire guns.

    On a day when legislation benefiting women and black colleges and universities was signed with much pomp and circumstance, President Trump quietly followed through on his pledge to defend the Second Amendment by signing the repeal of Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban. The U.S, House voted to repeal the ban on February 2 and the Senate voted to repeal it on February 15. The ban was fashioned behind closed doors in the summer of 2015 and Breitbart News reported: The specific details of the ban are unknown, as it is being put together “outside of public view.” But the...

    The 11th Circuit has released their en banc ruling on Wollschlaeger v. Florida. They partly reversed the three judge panels ruling on whether doctors have the right to interrogate patients on gun ownership, and record the answers in medical records, outside of reasons concerning individual patient care. The three judge panel had asserted that the state had a compelling interest in protecting Second Amendment rights, and could regulate licensed doctors to do so. The legislation in question is the Firearms Owners’ Privacy Act (FOPA).The 11Circuit asserted that doctors were merely private actors. As private actors, they have not legal...
