    A driver who spotted a "black object" flying through the air on a Washington highway stopped 18 miles later and found a handgun embedded in his bumper. Washington State Patrol Trooper Guy Gill said the man was driving Wednesday on Interstate 5, near Lakewood, when he saw the object fly through the air and appear to strike his bumper. The man told troopers he didn't think the object had struck his bumper very hard and no warning lights came on, so he decided not to stop and investigate. Gill said the man stopped at an Olympia gas station about 18...

    OK, I know what you're thinking - you're obviously skeptical of a proposal like this coming from a Conservative who claims to respect the 2nd Amendment. Bear with me, though. I could throw out stats like actual numbers trying to tie gun ownership to violent crime. I could trot out the CDC's own study regarding the use of guns for crime versus self defense. How about the lies that the gun grabbers like to use? Or maybe the many areas where the government broke down prior to and during the Parkland shooting? Even the Santa Fe shooter, while not obvious at first,...

    A situation escalates when the police tell a man to break into his home.Moments after arriving at the city house, Rochester Police Officer Korey McNees offered a solution for the man standing outside who wanted to retrieve items from his uncooperative girlfriend who'd earlier changed the locks: Just break into the house, McNees said. The law allowed it, McNees told the man time and time again in conversations outside of the Genesee Park Boulevard home and captured on police-worn body cameras. If the boyfriend lived there, then he was in his legal right to kick in a door or break...

    Bobby Amos stood outside of an Episcopal church in Alabama last spring, begging police to kill him. He had been suicidal earlier and held a gun to his head, his wife said, and she had hidden the weapon at the church, where he had followed her to retrieve it. There was little to indicate that Mr. Amos, 39, was a danger to anyone but himself that day. He was arrested unarmed outside the church, in need of treatment and counseling, according to his lawyer, Fred Tiemann. Police recovered the pistol from the building. Federal prosecutors, citing Mr. Amos’s conviction of...

    These highly unusual firearms were captured by Australian forces after the occupation of East Timor by Indonesia. In 1999 and later, Australian forces were part of the UN forces used to keep order after Indonesia pulled their military forces out after 24 years of occupation. Some of the unusual design features include the welded together three stacked barrels with the non-functional trigger guard and trigger. The ignition system is said to be designed for cigarettes, but any source of flame or a heated wire could work.  Using flash holes for open match ignition is usually a bad idea in...

And he put the camera closer to the paperwork and it said Houston Police Department,” said Daniels. “That really kind of ticked...

    STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – The sound of gunfire and someone shouting “Everybody down, everybody” shocked moviegoers sitting in the lobby of the Bow Tie Majestic 6 movie theaters Sunday night, but the incident appears to have been a juvenile prank.

Police say three members of the group had noisy toy guns and fired them in the theater while shouting “everyone...

    Michigan Concealed Pistol License holders have an extremely low murder rate. Japan has a very low murder rate. Japan is also a very law-abiding culture. The United States, as a whole, has a much higher murder rate than Japan. Within the United States, there is a law abiding culture that has a murder rate as low as Japan's. That culture consists of gun owners who carry guns legally.The FBI generally includes legally defined murder, which may be in the first or second degree, and non-negligent manslaughter, in the definition of murder for their statistics. A more precise definition might...

    STROUDSBURG — Tim Primrose remembers how old the Stroudsburg High School rifle team’s equipment was even in the 1990s, when he attended Stroudsburg High. “They were using rifles from the ’70s,” said Primrose, owner of Primrose Landscaping in East Stroudsburg. When the Stroudsburg School Board recently voted 6-2 against a $4,730 grant offered to update the rifle team’s equipment, because that grant came from the National Rifle Association, Primrose and others expressed disappointment. Viewed by many as opposing gun control, the NRA has been at the center of controversy in the wake of the February fatal mass shooting at Marjory...
