    Six people were killed and at least 23 others—including a 4-year-old girl—have been wounded in shootings across Chicago this Memorial Day weekend, police said. The 4-year-old, identified by her family as Jacele Johnson, was shot about 8 p.m. Friday in the West Englewood neighborhood. She and her 17-year-old cousin Romare Wilson were inside an SUV in the 7000 block of South Justine when another vehicle pulled up and someone inside opened fire, according to their family and Chicago Police.The girl was shot in the head and taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where she was in critical condition, authorities said.

Testers fired more than 8,000 rounds of 9mm through the 10 pistols, documenting all failures and malfunctions over the length of the test, as well as accuracy both prior to and after the test’s completion.

    On 22 May, 2015, the Nevada House passed SB175, a bill that combined a ban on people who have domestic violence convictions with major firearm law reforms. The domestic violence law mirrors federal law, so it will have little practical effect unless the federal law is repealed or struck down by some future court. The bill passed the Senate 14 to 5, and the Assembly, 25 to 17. Governor Sandoval is expected to sign it. I am writing this article from Nevada, and these gun law reforms are welcome. They are similar to those enacted by a number of states...

Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday reintroduced the Gun Show Loophole Closing Act, a bill long championed by former Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.),. The bill would subject anyone selling or transferring a gun to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System and require that transfers be reported to the attorney general.

    As a martial arts/firearms’ instructor, I’m often asked what constitutes the “best” gun for a survival situation. My stock answer is, “A good .357 Magnum stainless steel revolver with a 4-inch barrel.” However, when asked this question at other times, I’ll simply tell the person that the gun they are carrying is the “best” because it’s what they are carrying at the time they might need it. But really, when it comes to the .357 Magnum, there isn’t a better gun/ammo combination anyone could ask for in an all-around “best” gun set-up. I don’t make this statement lightly, either. The...

One huge differences was the influx of Michael Bloomberg’s money into the state, which showed itself not only in the establishment of an apparatus to help gun control candidates get elected but also in gifts to gun control senator Chuck Riley (D-Hillsboro).

U.S. District Judge Benjamin Settle in Tacoma ruled that opponents of the law didn’t have standing to challenge the parts of Initiative 594 that required background checks for noncommercial gun transfers. To challenge the law, the plaintiffs must show they’ve been actually prosecuted or at immediate risk of being prosecuted, he said.
