    A high school student was injured and one person was being sought after a shooting at a high school in southern Louisville, police said Tuesday. The student had non-life threatening injuries and was reunited with parents at University Hospital, Officer Phil Russell said. He didn't say if the injured student and shooter knew each other or if the shooter was a student at Fern Creek Traditional High School. Russell said the suspect left the 1,400-student school immediately after firing the shot. "It appears it is an isolated incident that happened just inside the school," Russell said. "Obviously a large crime...

    The Islamic State has issued a global call to lone wolves. One could be standing behind you on the bus, walking next you at the mall or sitting in the next cubicle. In the age of the Islamic State and solo terrorism, gun-free zones are simply an invitation for a terrorist attack. In Moore, Okla., the life-saving value of the Second Amendment was proved once again. It may be our secret weapon in the ongoing war against terrorism.

    In Oklahoma City last week, a business owner and reserve deputy sheriff named Mark Vaughan shot and injured a man who had beheaded one of his employees and, by all accounts, was in the process of attempting to decapitate another. In doing so, a spokesman for the police told reporters, Vaughan had likely saved the lives of “untold others” and he deserved to be treated as a “hero.” Almost universally, local law enforcement concurred. “The incident was not going to stop if he didn’t stop it,” Sergeant Jeremy Lewis explained to the Associated Press. “It could,” he suggested darkly, “have...

Chapter leaders from coast to coast will travel to St. Louis for three days of seminars, training and for the chance to meet and network with their sister chapter leaders.

WHY? 594 is an obvious attempt to violate the 2nd amendment by infringing on our rights to obtain or even transfer firearms. The bill is totally ludicrous. But I-591 is a Trojan horse. IT does prevent the confiscation of guns without due process, but the second part opens us to onslaught by Mike Bloomberg & Co. The second part of 591 no background checks can be required of recipients “UNLESS A UNIFORM NATIONAL STANDARD IS REQUIRED.” It does not specify which entity would be the responsible...

I drove there. It was night. The house looked creepy. My wife stayed in the car, cellphone in hand, ready to summon the cavalry. I walked to the front door and rang the doorbell. Nothing.

    Gun control in Britain passed in stages, beginning just after World War I and continuing in a reactionary fashion with increasing strictness through the 1990s. When the final stage arrived in 1997, and virtually all handguns were banned via the Firearms Act, the promise was a reduction in crime and greater safety for the British people. But the result was the emergence of Britain as the "most violent country in Europe." Britain began placing restrictions on gun ownership after World War I with the Firearms Act of 1920. .... The Firearms Act of 1920 did not ban guns. Rather, it...

The wheels of criminal justice have now slowly, slowly churned to completion. And wouldn’t you know it? The judge in the case has now found it in his heart to give the heat-packing activist, Dwayne Ferguson, a generously light sentence. On Monday, Judge John L.

    When a gunman attempted to murder Rep. Gabriel Giffords in January 2011, the country was shocked by what was widely interpreted as an act that symbolized the incivility that had transformed American politics. That assumption, which was primarily aimed at undermining the Tea Party movement that had swept the midterm elections months before in the 2010 midterms, was soon debunked when we learned the shooter was an apolitical madman. But liberals have never ceased yapping about the implications of their opponents’ alleged meanness. Now it turns out the person who is doing the most to give the lie to this...

Between 2000 and 2010, the rate of firearm-related fatalities in the U.S. was 9.05 per 100,000 people for whites and 18.51 per 100,000 people for blacks. When factoring in the 3.38 deaths per 100,000 people of other races, the country’s overall gun-related death rate was 10.21 per 100,000 Americans, researchers reported Thursday in the journal BMJ Open.

As with all gun control, law abiding citizens are unarmed and unprotected, while the criminals have their weapons. Australia has some of the most restrictive gun control laws on earth. We’ve discussed this before. An Australian farmer lost his fight to obtain a handgun to shoot feral hogs because he couldn’t satisfy the woman heading the “administrative...

    Following some of the most significant protests in recent American history, you'd think Missouri's priorities would be rebuilding frayed ties within its communities and addressing its policing problem. Instead, the overwhelmingly Republican state legislature thinks that, SWAT teams aside, there aren't enough guns out there. On Thursday, Missouri lawmakers addressed this concern by overriding an earlier veto from Governor Jay Nixon and voting into place a law that massively expands gun rights in the state: it lowers the legal age to obtain a concealed weapons permit from 21 to 19, allows residents with such a permit to openly carry guns,...

    OVER the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over gun control have coalesced behind a single proposition: The sale of assault weapons should be banned. That idea was one of the pillars of the Obama administration’s plan to curb gun violence, and it remains popular with the public. In a poll last December, 59 percent of likely voters said they favor a ban. But in the 10 years since the previous ban lapsed, even gun control advocates acknowledge a larger truth: The law that barred the sale of assault weapons from 1994 to 2004...

Nonetheless, it is a good idea . . . . Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation.” Of course, Krauthammer soon learned that the American people cannot be “desensitized” to the left’s arrogant enterprises of would-be gun theft. On the contrary, recent in-your-face efforts by gun control zealots to...

According to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. gun-related homicides dropped 39 percent over the course of 18 years, from 18,253 during 1993, to 11,101 in 2011. During the same period, non-fatal firearm crimes decreased even more, a whopping 69 percent. The majority of those declines in both categories...

SB 656 also allows people who possess a concealed carry permit (CCW) to openly carry firearms, and it lowers the legal age for a CCW from 21 to 19. The override passed by a margin of 23 to 8. A house vote is set for September 11, where the veto is expected to be overturned.

    The founder of Mike Bloomberg’s anti-gun organization was once a well-paid corporate spokeswoman for left-wing bête noirs, Monsanto and WellPoint. The self-proclaimed “accidental activist” has a history of pro-abortion advocacy and high-end art dealing with her husband, a highly paid corporate exec. She’s currently on a crusade to ban guns from grocery stories and Panera Bread.

    Last February, the Ninth Circuit Court Of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over most of the Western United States, ruled that California’s concealed carry law was unconstitutional. The provision in the law stating that one must give “good cause” for a concealed carry permit was deemed too burdensome–and they’re right! After the ruling, Orange County saw a spike in concealed carry permits. It got to the point where the county had to spend an additional $1.6 million–and hire 14 part-time staffers–to process all the applications.
  • Bloomberg/MDA and Target again?

According to some FB Posts and Tweets I saw recently it seems MDA or their members have realized that nothing has changed policy wise. I can't find anything official form MDA on a new campaign, but is seems like some of their members might have realized they were lied to and are not happy.

    In light of recent mass shootings – primarily in so-called ‘gun-free zones’ – that have left dozens dead and even more injured, Americans have become increasingly divided regarding how such tragedies might be avoided in the future.While some have concluded that stricter gun control laws would keep citizens safe by limiting legal access to firearms, plenty of others recognize that a well-armed populace can act as a deterrent to would-be violent criminals. As federal authorities consider imposing legislation that would make the ownership of certain weapons illegal, local law enforcement officials are speaking out against such proposals. One such voice is...
