    National Review ^ | May 26, 2016 | John R Lott Jr
    At a White House conference on Tuesday with representatives of state and local law enforcement from all 50 states, Vice President Joe Biden asserted that an ďoverwhelming majorityĒ of Americans fully support so-called smart guns ó firearms that can only be fired by a particular person. Biden claimed that this technology ďcould have gigantic payoff for usĒ in saving lives and reducing gun-related violence. Now, President Obama wants to use federal grants to encourage police departments to buy ďsmart gunsĒ for officers. The idea is to prevent officersí guns from being used against them. In reality, this technology is more...

Out. Out. Out," Trump, from the podium, told security officials. "Don't hurt him," he added. "I say that for the TV cameras, but don't hurt him." It's unclear what happened to the protester.

Another early idea was to use reinforced bamboo to shoot arrows and darts. No one knows who thought of this, but they did indeed change the world. The general consensus is...

    With its last-minute decision to formally endorse Donald Trump, the National Rifle Association put itself out in front of the fight for Republican party unity. Just a day later, itís already taking flak. Chris Cox, the NRAís top strategist, was met with raucous applause when he announced to the estimated 80,000 people gathered here for the groupís annual leadership forum on Friday that the nationís biggest and most influential gun-rights organization was officially backing the presumptive Republican nominee. To endorse so early in the process is virtually unprecedented for the group; they didnít get behind Mitt Romney in 2012 and...

    The deadly-but-forgotten government gun-running scandal known as ďFast and FuriousĒ has lain dormant for years, thanks to White House stonewalling and media compliance. But newly uncovered e-mails have reopened the case, exposing the anatomy of a coverup by an administration that promised to be the most transparent in history. A federal judge has forced the release of more than 20,000 pages of emails and memos previously locked up under President Obamaís phony executive-privilege claim. A preliminary review shows top Obama officials deliberately obstructing congressional probes into the border gun-running operation. Fast and Furious was a Justice Department program that allowed...

"That's no way to keep us safe." ...

    In denying his application for a concealed-carry permit, Oceanport Police Chief Daniel W. Barcus said Russell was unable to demonstrate ďjustifiable needĒ because there had been no specific attacks or threats made directly on him. To legally carry concealed firearms in New Jersey, residents have to apply to their local police for a permit demonstrating such a need. But critics of the stateís strict gun laws say this results in very few people other than acting and retired law enforcement officials getting approval for such permits.

    Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump's proposals on firearms Saturday as dangerous for America's children, just one day after the GOP's presumptive presidential nominee garnered the endorsement of the National Rifle Association. "Donald Trump said that in his very first hour as president, heaven forbid, he would overturn President [Barack] Obama's actions to strengthen background checks," Clinton said, speaking at the Trayvon Martin Foundation's "Circle of Mothers" dinner in Fort Lauderdale. "Then, Mr. Trump went further. He said that also on his first day in office he'd mandate that every school in America allow guns in classrooms. Every school,...

    REDMOND, Ore. ó B.J. Soper took aim with his AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and fired a dozen shots at a human silhouette target. Soperís wife and their 16-year-old daughter practiced drawing pistols. Then Soper helped his 4-year-old daughter, in pink sneakers and a ponytail, work on her marksmanship with a .22-caliber rifle. Deep in the heart of a vast U.S. military training ground, surrounded by spent shotgun shells and juniper trees blasted to shreds, the Central Oregon Constitutional Guard was conducting its weekly firearms training. ďThe intent is to be able to work together and defend ourselves if we need to,Ē...
