    Valerius Geist is a Professor Emeritus of Environmental Science at the University of Calgary, Canada.  He believed in the myth of the "Harmless" wolf until he personally experienced evidence to the contrary, four years after he retired.  In this heavily documented paper, written in 2010, He explores how the mythology came to be. From wolfeducationinternational.com: Valerius Geist November 26th 2010 The effects of thousands of impoverished trappers and wolf bounties in northern Alberta early in the 20the century on predators, and its relation to the myth of the harmless wolf. Dear Colleagues, I have been digging into historical literature in...

    ccording to authorities, a deputy saw 39-year-old Jack Lee Ernest driving a quad ATV on Old Highway 58 in Barstow around 11 p.m. The deputy pulled Ernest over. As the traffic stop was being conducted, Ernest "attempted to flee and behaved so suspiciously he was detained," according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. The deputy searched Ernest and found "numerous" illegal weapons, including a sawed-off shotgun with ammunition tactically attached. The deputy also found brass knuckles and two large knives which deputies say Ernest had "positioned for tactical access." According to deputies, Ernest said he fashioned himself as "Mad...

    California’s draconian new gun laws will require residents of the Golden state to register their “assault weapons” with the state (which they will have to pay to do of course) by the end of the year. But thanks to capitalism and the free market, gun makers have already figured out workarounds.

    I am planning on flying to CA and then driving back to Texas with my daughter and grandchildren. I would feel much safer with a firearm on the way back, with so much desolate area and close to the border. My question is, will I be given grief when I arrive at Burbank? It's a pistol, actually purchased in CA but several years ago. Can I take my ammo? This is why I hate flying, but I do t ha e a choice. THANKS!

    People are increasingly buying more lethal guns, and arming themselves for purposes of protection rather than for hunting or recreation, new research shows. In a study of gun manufacturing and sales from 1990 to 2015, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, researchers shows that the production of larger-caliber handguns skyrocketed in this time period. The paper found that since 1994, the manufacture of .38-caliber guns rose 12-fold, with nearly 820,000 of the pistols produced in 2015. The manufacture of 9 mm guns also increased seven-fold in this 15-year stretch, while those larger than 9 mm jumped 150 percent

    English gun store In the U.K., the mere idea that licensed gun owners could be considered a resource to defend against terrorist attack, is off the table. A caller to a BBC radio show, a gun store owner and gun owner, asked Alison Hernandez, the Cornwall Police and Crime Commissioner, a question.  What would be the repercussions of legal gun owners using guns to defend themselves in a terrorist attack? The Commissioner suggested that the idea should be examined. From theguardian.com: “If there should ever be a terrorist attack, what happens if I and other people try to defend...

    A Georgia man caught urinating at a Metro Gold Line station in Pasadena Wednesday was carrying a cache of weapons, including a loaded AR-15-type rifle, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

    PASADENA >> What began as an investigation into public urination at a Pasadena Gold Line station on Wednesday led deputies to seize two guns, high-capacity magazines, suppressors and a machete from the suspect’s duffel bag, authorities said. Deputies first approached a man about 9 a.m. after spotting a man relieving himself in a planter along the sidewalk outside the Sierra Madre Villa Gold Line Station at Madre Street and Foothill Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said. The deputies confronted the man about the offense, and the suspect provided them with what turned out to be a false name, according...

    How Weld law enforcement is working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to combat gun crime In 2016, the new year opened with five shootings in Colorado Springs. Those shootings were spread across the city, but as police collected evidence from each crime scene, detectives began to suspect they were linked. Police found similarities on the spent shell casings they gathered. Every shell bears a specific "fingerprint" from the gun from which it was fired, a set of distinctive markings on the shell casing left by the gun. Each gun leaves different markings, making shell casings an...

    The FBI has published a brief report on the shooting in Alexandria. It is devastating to the idea that the gun-control measures presently coveted by the Democratic party would have done something to prevent the attack. Over the past two decades, Democrats have focused on three major proposals for reform. They are: 1) That all private transfers should be contingent upon a federal background check; 2) That firearms that look a certain way should be classed as “assault weapons” and prohibited from sale; and 3) That civilians should be forbidden from buying magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. None...

    A hero sniper took out an ISIS fanatic with an incredible 11,300-foot shot — which is more than 2 miles — the longest confirmed kill ever. A member of Canada’s Joint Task Force 2 killed the insurgent with a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle during an operation last month in Iraq. Sources wouldn’t reveal the names of the elite sniper and his spotter or the exact location where the shooting took place for operational reasons. A military source told the Globe and Mail: “The shot in question actually disrupted a Daesh [Islamic State] attack on Iraqi security forces.” “Instead of dropping...

    Meanwhile, FBI officials said leftist gunman James Hodgkinson had more than 200 rounds of ammunition at a local storage unit when he attacked Republican lawmakers as they practiced for the annual Congressional baseball game. Timothy Slater, special agent in charge of the FBI Washington field office, said Hodgkinson, 66, had rented a storage unit in Alexandria started April 16, which he visited more than 43 times between April and June. Also, Hodgkinson visited the office of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in mid-April and emailed Senators Tammy Duckworth and Dick Durbin, D-Ill., sometime between January 2017 and the shooting last week,...

    Philando Castile did what you are supposed to do if you have a concealed-carry permit and get pulled over by police: He let the officer know he had a gun. Had Castile been less forthcoming, he would still be alive. Last Friday a Minnesota jury acquitted the cop who killed Castile of second-degree manslaughter, demonstrating once again how hard it is to hold police accountable when they use unnecessary force. The verdict also sends a chilling message to gun owners, since Castile is dead because he exercised his constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Jeronimo Yanez, an officer employed...

    The Springfield Armory XDe 9mm combines a traditional trigger system with a polymer frame to offer a pistol that successfully melds old and new. While Springfield’s new XDe is branded as an extension of the popular XD line, it shares little with its erstwhile stablemates except for the use of a polymer frame. The previous XD pistols are striker-fired handguns, and with the XDe, the “e” stands for “external,” as-in external hammer. This hammer is mated with a traditional double-action/single action trigger system. The XDe also omits the grip safety found in the other XD pistols in favor of a...

    I am a lifelong firearm enthusiast. I started shooting at 10 years old when my father got me a Crossman pump action air rifle with a four power Tasco scope. He was one of only three NRA training counselors in the state of Wisconsin for many years. I began shooting competitively through 4-H not long after, eventually shooting air rifle, air pistol, and shotgun trap through the program. After 4-H, I went on to shoot small-bore rifle in local competitions. Today, I own four firearms of various kinds, make time to shoot several thousand rounds per year, and am licensed...
