    10/08/2015 7:22:42 AM PDT · by Timber Rattler · 20 replies ^ | October 7, 2015 | Isbella Diaz
    The McLean Citizens Association (MCA) Board will have a meeting Wednesday evening to discuss the current predicament involving a new gun shop and a local elementary school. Franklin Sherman Elementary School is located right behind the newly-opened NOVA Firearms in McLean. Local community members started protesting the gun store soon after its open. Some parents claim they are even pulled their kids out of school as a result of threats they received because of the protests. NOVA Firearms owner James Gates said the shop officially opened up about two weeks ago to about 120 protesters. Even so, Gates said the...

    The White House is promoting the expansion of Medicaid through Obamacare as one way to prevent more gun violence, and urging Republicans to join forces with the president. “For those who say they want to work with the administration in limiting gun violence, we would welcome the support for the Affordable Care Act and expanding Medicaid,” spokesman Josh Earnest explained to reporters during the White House press briefing.

    The White House confirmed that President Obama was preparing a series of executive actions on gun control to match his recent passion on the issue after the latest mass shooting in Oregon. “It’s a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today at the press briefing. Earnest said he would “quibble” with anyone who criticized the president for not voicing any specific gun control proposals during his press conference, asserting that the White House was working behind the scenes...

    BILL O'REILLY: Now this is another black mark for all Americans, as people around the world must wonder what is really going on in the land of the free. And it is our freedom that allows insane individuals to kill so many people. Guns are legal in America under the Second Amendment. Tonight President Obama delivered impassioned anti-gun remarks, which we will discuss later. But the mass murder today could not have been prevented by any legislation in my opinion. (snip) The country itself takes a massive hit whenever this kind of thing happens. Thirty-two people killed at Virginia Tech,...

    On Sept. 23, Matthew Nellessen of Friendship, Wisc., an avid deer hunter and former U.S. Army sergeant who served with the 961st Engineers in Afghanistan in 2006 and 2007, was scouting a potential hunting area in the Colburn Wildlife Management Area of Adams County when he locked eyes with a wolf only 30 yards away. Acting on instinct he gained from military service, Nellessen immediately pulled his sidearm, a Walther PK .380, and chambered a round. That’s when things went from bad to worse. As he racked the slide, Nellessen noticed two more wolves approaching from the left. “It all...

    A lot has been made about the 3D printing of firearms. Whether you are for or against the rights to own and operate a gun, there is no denying that 3D printing has created a bit of problem for those interested in controlling the distribution and availability of these potential weapons. WeÂ’ve seen several versions of 3D printed firearms come about over the past couple of years, most notably the Liberator gun from Defense DistributedÂ’s creator Cody Wilson. The great thing (or perhaps not so greatÂ… depending on which side of the political fence you stand on), is that 3D...

    A California company called Alternative Ballistics has developed an easy-to-install accessory for hand guns that promises to make bullets non-lethal allowing law enforcement to incapacitate a suspect without causing life-threatening injuries. The most important feature of the accessory, called The Alternative, is that it doesn’t interfere with the operation of a handgun in any way once it’s clipped onto the muzzle. The weapon’s sights still work, and other accessories like flashlights can still be attached.

She suggested a compromise of removing her name from the licenses, but Federal District Court Judge David Bunning wouldn’t even grant that reasonable compromise. Contrast this with Cathy Lanier, chief of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, refusing to issue concealed weapons permits to people unless they can arbitrarily show a “good reason,” nothing required by law. A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction in May stopping her from...

She made this suggestion in the face of Florida state Representative Rehwinkel Vasilinda (D-9th), although Vasilinda was the victim of “attempted rape” while in college–an “attempted rape” that she was able to stop by grabbing the gun her father had given her for self-defense.

    Calls for more gun control almost always follow a public crime or terror attack in which the attacker–or attackers–use a gun. Yet many of the most infamous attacks take place in gun free zones–places where law-abiding citizens disarm themselves to comply with the rules while criminals take advantage of disarmed masses and open fire. What follows are just a few of the many examples of shootings in gun free zones that could be listed. There is not one type of firearm that can be blamed–the weapon used was sometimes a handgun, sometimes a rifle, other times a shotgun–nor is there one...

    ".....The Assembly passed the proposal on a voice vote Tuesday. It now heads to Gov. Scott Walker. Senate Republicans passed the bill in April, dismissing Democrats' concerns that the measure would make it easier for people to purchase handguns in a fit of rage.
