    AUGUSTA, Maine — A father and son reeled in an unexpected catch on the Kennebec River over the weekend — a rusted bolt-action rifle. The unidentified pair were fishing near the northern end of Canal Street when they brought in a Remington 700 with scope and bipod still attached and several rounds in the magazine, according to the Kennebec Journal. They brought the rifle to police, who are trying to figure out who owned the rifle and how it got into the river. Augusta police Lt. Chris Read told the paper that the rifle was “possibly related to some type...

    About 1,300 US children under the age of 17 die from gun-related injuries per year, a government study has found. Researchers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also found that guns seriously wounded about 5,800 children each year.

More than half of these deaths were homicides while 38% were ruled suicide. The study, published in Pediatrics on Monday, also found 6% of firearm-related deaths were fatalities from accidental gun...

    A CNN media reporter accused the Drudge Report of not caring about facts, then refused to correct inaccurate CNN reporting on guns. It’s been a tough couple of weeks for CNN. First, an assistant to CNN chief Jeff Zucker was overheard on an airplane literally declaring war on the Trump administration. A few weeks after that, a CNN host thought it would be fun to stage a mock beheading of the president of the United States. Then CNN utterly botched its reporting on whether former FBI director James Comey would contradict Trump’s claim that Comey told him on three separate...

    ...Had Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) not been at Wednesday’s congressional baseball practice, the scene would have been much more deadly, several witnesses have concluded. Scalise, who was shot in the hip, is currently in surgery. Five people in total were shot, including a Scalise staffer and Capitol police officers, who arrived at the scene within three minutes, managing to subdue the attacker. A shaken Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) explained to the media that because Scalise is the Majority Whip, he is one of few members of Congress who always travels with his security detail. Rand Paul: "I think we're lucky...

    California’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is working on 60 pages of regulatory changes for “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines behind closed doors. The California DOJ was forced to turn over documentation related to the changes because of public records request that the Firearms Policy Coalition and the California Rifle and Pistol Association made. Guns.com obtained and then published the regulatory changes, which include a revamped online registration system to allow Californians to register their “assault weapons” prior to January 1, 2018, when California’s latest “assault weapons” ban takes effect. The Firearms Policy Coalition reports this ban requires registration of...

    Advice for Trump: Revise U.S. Military Manuals Corrupted by Obama’s Pentagon One of President Donald James Trump’s and Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis’ primary endeavors should be to rollback the damage done to the Pentagon’s military manuals, curricula for training of officers and enlisted men, and the other material compromised by eight-years of political correctness seeping into the military. As part of former President Barack Obama’s mission to “win the hearts and minds” of people who despise the United States of America, including those who live in the U.S., the Pentagon released new military manuals that pleased groups...

Officers responded to the scene and were ultimately able to determine the cat did not pose any real threat. "Reports of an armed cat this morning were unfounded," police said. "The feline was contacted by our canine and was determined to be in possession of a non-lethal branch." The officers ended the...

    The incident took place on March 26, 2016. It started when officers stopped a car they said was wanted in connection with a string of larcenies. James Yarborough, a passenger in the car, ran from police. Eventually, officers caught up with Yarborough after a foot chase. Once on the ground, officers struggled with Yarborough for roughly four minutes before putting him in handcuffs. It’s what happened during the four-minute-long struggle that Yarborough said should be considered excessive force.

    Two years ago, Romeoville Illinois held a gun “buy back. They took in 73 guns, pictured above. Some of those firearms are very nice indeed, and worth much more than the $60 that police were paying people for them. Third from the left of the middle row of long guns appears to be an M1 carbine and sling. Two over on the left is a classic .22 target rifle, two over to the right a classic hunting tool, a pump action .22 rifle, probably a Winchester 1906.  In the center of that row are two Stevens Crackshot .22 rifles,...
