    Two children stood outside a home within the crime scene where four people were shot in the Little Village neighborhood on the West Side Sunday night. They watched police shine flashlights across the sidewalk, and place evidence markers near shell casings. The children caught Annette Hernandez’s eye as she walked by the scene in the 2200 block of South Sacramento Avenue. “You see, there are kids running around,” Hernandez said. “Every night, it’s the same stuff.” The four were standing on the street around 9:30 p.m. when a male shooter approached on foot and began firing, critically injuring a 21-year-old...

    Unlike Americans, Germans had no legal right to keep and bear arms and the liberal Weimar Republic sought to register, regulate and prohibit firearms. When Hitler’s National Socialist (Nazi) Party took power, they used those records to disarm and oppress the people, and that is why there was no armed resistance movement in Germany.  That is the story of Stephen Halbrook’s masterful 2013 Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and “Enemies of the State.”  Halbrook’s new book, Gun Control in Nazi-Occupied France: Tyranny and Resistance, charts the same process in occupied France. As he notes, of...

His dog, a Chesapeake-Lab mix, was with them. They were heading to some rock formations. Noah was carrying his 460V Smith & Wesson revolver. Two other men in the party were carrying bear spray.  The two men with bear spray had fallen 50 yards behind. The dog alerted on something. Noah thought it was some sort of big animal. Then he saw the bears, a grizzly sow...

    Delta Airlines and Bank of America pulled out of their sponsorship of New York’s Public Theater on Sunday over a production of “Julius Caesar” that re imagines the main character as President Trump. Shortly after Delta, who was a four-year sponsor, made its announcement, Bank of America yanked its support as well. The Shakespeare in the Park play tells the story of the leader assassinated by Roman senators over the fear that he’s becoming too tyrannical, but rather than the original setting, the production stages Caesar (Gregg Henry) and his wife, Calpurnia, (Tina Benko) with Donald and Melania Trump lookalikes....

    Father’s Day fun turned into chaos at a New Jersey all-night arts festival when two gunman opened fire — injuring over a dozen people, including a 13-year-old boy, early Sunday. Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said that 16 of the 20 people injured were treated for gunshot wounds, and that four, including the teen, were in critical condition. One of the suspects, a 33-year-old man, was killed and the other was in custody. The Art All Night festival in Trenton NJ., didn’t appear to have been targeted and the shooting was prompted by a fight at the event, Onofri said....

    Several would-be robbers got an impromptu lesson in the Second Amendment outside a supermarket in suburban Atlanta, all thanks to the fact that they messed with the wrong couple. According to WSB-TV, the men were shot after approaching a couple outside of a Kroger in Decatur, Georgia, on Friday. Details are still sketchy, but police say the men followed the pair out of the store just after 4 p.m. and tried a robbery of some sort. That’s when one of the targets pulled out a gun and shot the men. “It was chaos,” one witness said. “I saw the guy...

    The gun control bills that New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed this week won’t save lives. If anything, it will lead to more crime and death. The laws aim to keep firearms out of the wrong hands, expand background checks, and reduce magazine size. But at best, the new laws will harass otherwise law-abiding New Jerseyans and make it difficult for the poor to defend themselves.
  • Some financial companies move to cut off services to firearm companies

    When gun control advocates can’t win on guns, they have tried to either silence those who support self-defense from having their views covered in the media, youtube banning videos intending to sell firearms or accessories or how to use guns or build them, or prevent firearms companies from getting financing. On financing, the first strategy was to use government pressure. With that ended, individual finance companies are making life difficult for those in the firearms industry.

    Gun control advocates can now boast of a new group of allies joining their dubious coalition: witches. It kind of makes sense. We all know that gun control is based mainly on magical thinking. Its advocates, after all, ask us to believe we’re just a few more “commonsense safety measures” away from a world in which evil people who are otherwise determined to kill others refrain from doing so for fear they might violate a gun control law somewhere along the way. A related premise is that gun control advocates hold the keys to ending violent behavior once and for...

    Nearly 220 Texas school districts allow school staff to be armed for defense of themselves and their students. The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that the exact number of school districts allowing armed staff sits at 217. At the beginning of February there were just over 170 Texas districts allowing armed staff, but that number grew as district after district responded to Parkland and other school shootings by changing policies to allow staff to defend their students.

    People who talk and write about the Second Amendment focus on firearms. There is nothing wrong with that. Some people go off into the weeds on nuclear weapons, but the cost of obtaining one for non-state actors is prohibitive and covered in minute detail by thousands of pages of regulations. Consider the other end of the spectrum. That end is clearly covered by the Second Amendment. Consider how much protection the Second Amendment gives to items other than firearms. Items which are used and carried every day by tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of Americans. This was driven home...

    While pro-gun control activists where hosting a “die-in” in front of the U.S. Capitol building and Senate Republican offices, other activists held local “die-ins” to demand strict gun control legislation be passed and signed into law. At some locations, there were pro-Second Amendment supporters hosting counter-rallies. During the rally in Nashville, members of Freedom Rights decided to place pocket Constitutions on the people who lay down: “We just wanted to make sure they had copies of the Constitution,” Cerise Bowes, vice president of the group,“ told Tennessean. ”Though they have every right to say what they feel, we don’t necessarily...
