    Subjects Burglarize FBI Vehicle in Washington, D.C.; Steal Weapons The FBI’s Washington Field Office is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the recovery of stolen weapons. On Sunday, July 10, 2016, between 12:00 a.m. and 2:00 a.m., unknown subjects burglarized an FBI special agent’s vehicle and removed a secured gun lock box which contained weapons and other equipment. The vehicle was parked in the H Street Corridor near H and Seventh Streets, N.E., in Washington, D.C. The lock box, which contained the items listed below, was fitted for authorized use in a government vehicle. Glock-22...

    Stay free, stay strong, do your part for the civil defense, and we will have an ever increasing, responsibly armed citizenry against the forces of evil, and maintain our unique country, free in a world of oppression One of the great freedoms I can now exercise since leaving California is the right to own and carry firearms (keep and bear arms), which the Constitution guarantees the government will not even touch (infringe). Of course they do, especially in California and other liberal states. But in Florida, you can apply for a concealed carry weapons (CCW) permit, and if you meet...

    My column stood against the ill thought out comparison of the NRA to ISIS by George Kennedy, University of Missouri Columbia Journalism School professor emeritus, in his column entitled "The NRA is a Danger to Us All." While the article defended the NRA, it also called for introspection and a self-policing in an industry that is currently held in a monopoly of singular leftist ideology. Instead of making a clarification, the Post Dispatch yielded to whiny snowflakes who could not bear the thought of my opinion existing within the papers august pages.

    Last week the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) held an event in Manassas, Virginia, focused on the hearing protection offered by firearm suppressors. Suppressors and firearms from Daniel Defense and Sig Sauer were used at the event, which was designed to be hands-on. This means the reporters and writers who were present got to shoot every firearm and use every suppressor at the range. Breitbart News attended the event, which drew attention to the suppressor legislation contained in the Hearing Protection Act. That Act was put forward by Representatives Jeff Duncan (R-SC-3) and John Carter (R-TX-31) on January 9. It...

    It has long been known that nonimmigrant aliens may purchase and own firearms  in the United States for hunting or for sporting purposes. In order to legally purchase firearms from federally licensed dealers, non-resident aliens have to show a legal hunting license or that they "have been admitted" for sporting purposes. The easiest way to obtain a document to allow purchases at gun stores is a hunting license. Some Chinese students in Arizona recently fell afoul of the law by purchasing *resident* hunting licenses when they were not technically eligible to do so.  From azcentral.com: In recent months, federal...

    Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck warns that national reciprocity for concealed carry will be a disaster in California. In a May 25 op-ed published by the Los Angeles Times, Beck wrote, “The mere presence of more concealed weapons on California streets would make police work here much more hazardous.” Beck did not mention, however, that police officers around the nation support gun rights over gun control and specifically support concealed carry for law-abiding citizens. On January 11, 2017, Breitbart News reported a Pew Research Center survey showing that rank-and-file police officers support protecting citizens’ gun rights over passing...

    I read with fascination this article that appeared in the Macon, Georgia Telegraph today, which I’m pleased to see is getting a fair amount of press on my favorite pro-Second Amendment sites. And by fascination, I really mean the sort of morbid, irresistible curiosity that compels one to stare at car accidents and other scenes of destruction, like The Kramer. In it, breathless researchers from Boston University trumpet their newly launched State Firearm Law Database. The article is sure to appeal to the logic challenged, especially those who already suffer from full-blown hoplophobia. Michael Siegel and Molly Pahn propose to...

    In 2015, after seeing too many people reluctantly leave Lincoln County to find work elsewhere, Minister Phil Alspaw and 15 or so other members of Libby Christian Church sat around a conference room table. “We started kicking around what the church might do to change that dynamic and bring jobs to Lincoln County,” Alspaw said. Several hours of economic development talk followed. The group’s aim was to establish a manufacturing ministry. Alspaw said they started with caskets — and ended with bullets. With a laugh Alspaw declined to say what other ideas they tossed around in between, but he said...

    Gov. Greg Abbott’s visit to a shooting range to sign a bill into law got big attention when he took some target practice and made a crack about journalists. “I’m going to carry this around in case I see any reporters,” Abbott said with a grin as he joked with journalists covering the event, after he was given his target sheet. There was little attention paid to the remark at The Range in South Austin, where Abbott posed for a photograph.

    Gun control advocates frequently advise against people using guns for self-defense. But Michael Bloomberg and various anti-gun politicians often use armed guards as protection. Talk is cheap. But when a professor resigns because of his university’s concealed carry policies, that’s a story that can get national attention. In May, associate history professor Jacob Dorman resigned from the University of Kansas. He accepted another tenured position at a different public university in a noncampus-carry state.

    On 18 May, 2017, the Tennessee Legislature sent bill HB0508 to Governor Haslam for action. The bill was very popular in the legislature. It passed the House 71-14, and the Senate 26 to 6. The essence of the bill is that it requires local and state government entities to use more than mere signs to ban firearms from their premises. The common sense approach is that signs merely stop law abiding people from carrying, while doing little to prevent people armed with ill intent from entering such facilities. The mechanism to enforce the bill is that of private lawsuits....

    Time seemed to slow for Thomas Yoxall. He soaked in the details: the four flares set up roadside, the patrol car’s lights in the pre-dawn darkness. The trooper on the ground that a man was pummeling. Yoxall pulled his car over and exited. He held his handgun in a three-quarter draw, ready to fire. He walked step over step, trying to keep himself as narrow a potential target as possible. Yoxall yelled at the man to back away from the trooper; the man did not. Instead, he raised his fists high in the air. Yoxall saw his opportunity. He fired...

    Hundreds of women showed up for free gun training in Detroit, Mich., on Sunday. The event, which has been held annually for the last six years, saw its best turnout yet. Organizers said about 700 women expressed interest in the training and around 600 attended. The goal, they said, was helping women learn how to protect themselves. "We teach women how to shoot and discharge a firearm, and a personal protection strategy," Rick Ector, the founder of Legally Armed in Detroit and creator of the event, told the Detroit Free Press. "This is an event to see if owning a...

    Concealed carry permits rose 215 percent between 2007 and 2015, and the murder rate dropped 14 percent during that same time period. In other words, more guns being carried for self-defense correlated with fewer murders. On May 22, Breitbart News reported that the demand for concealed carry permits witnessed its greatest surge ever between May 2016 and May 2017. Fox News referenced Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) data showing there were 14.5 million permit holders in May 2016 and approximately 15.7 million in May 2017. Now the NRA is tweeting data which shows that the bigger picture is not just...

    July 21, 2016 began as any other day for Wayne Parish. The Crystal Springs resident woke up, bid his family farewell and went to work at Performance Oil on McDowell Road in Jackson Mississippi. But the transformative events of that fateful day changed Parish’s life forever. On that day, the hard-working, law-abiding family man crossed paths with a 17-year-old delinquent named Charles McDonald. Despite his youth, McDonald was already an aspiring criminal and a recidivist offender. On July 21, his mother, Yvette Mason-Sherman, tried to take him to the Henley-Young Youth Detention facility, which is located next to Performance...

    With Donald Trump as President, now is the time to reform federal knife laws and to protect knife owners from abusive state laws.Two different bills have been introduced, one in the House, H.R. 84, by Knife Rights, and one in the Senate, S. 1092, by American Knife and Tool Institute (AKTI). The two bills are based on continuing efforts by both groups. They are superficially similar, but differ in crucial details. Both bills are fairly short. As with all legislation, you have to read the language very carefully and critically to understand some of the differences.The Knife Rights bill...

    A group of Democrats in the state senate are backing a measure that would prohibit the sale of guns in New York State without child-proof features. The bill, S.3444, would make it illegal to sell or transfer handguns one year after its passage unless the firearm was designed to where a five-year-old could not pull the trigger. Supporters think the move is needed to prevent accidental shootings. “There is no reason that a young child five years old should be able to have access to a weapon that he or she could fire,” said the bill’s sponsor, Sen. José M....
