    I have been staying in the Dallas, Texas, metro area for 10 days now.  I have seen very few 30.06 signs or 30.07 signs. They are good sized signs and take up a considerable amount of space, so they are hard to miss, which is part of the legislative intent. I have noticed them in three places.  The sign pictured above is at the entrance to a Dallas pediatric center.  I was assisting my daughter in taking her son there for a checkup.  As she also has a 20 day old infant, an extra hand was appreciated.  The weather...

    Milwaukee police are investigating a shots fired incident that occurred inside the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino early Friday morning, April 15th. We're told it happened on the gaming floor around 2:30 a.m. According to police, a 38-year-old male suspect retrieved a handgun from his pocket and fired several gunshots inside the Potawatomi Casino. This caused several patrons of the casino to flee from the immediate area. While doing so, several people fell and received minor injuries.

    Four people were killed and 14 others injured in a Thursday afternoon rampage through a rural Kansas county that ended with the death of the gunman at police hands.

    HB67 passed the Utah house on February 9, 2016. This commonsense legislation removes the prohibition of carrying a weapon on a bus when there is no criminal intent. The prohibition of the possession of weapons on public transportation has always been highly problematic.  Many people depend on public transportation, and buses are used much more commonly by people of limited means.  The prohibition of the transportation of firearms of any kind on buses is an attack on the exercise of Second Amendment rights by the poor. The statute already had an exception for people with a concealed carry license. ...

    An analysis of mass shootings in the United States since the year 2002 shows that gun wielding mass killers are more likely to strike where the Second Amendment right to bear arms has been supplanted by "gun-free zone" ordinances; be they federal, local, or specified by the owner of the property. The Stanford University Libraries' dataset of mass shootings ("Stanford Mass Shootings in America, courtesy of the Stanford Geospatial Center and Stanford Libraries") was analyzed for mass shootings over the past 14 years.The definition of a mass shooting for the Stanford database is three or more shooting victims injured or...

    Real-estate mogul Donald Trump ended his Thursday-night campaign rally by calling for an end to so-called gun-free zones on schools and US military bases. "I will get rid of gun-free zones on schools -- you have to-- and on military bases on my first day. It gets signed my first day," the Republican presidential front-runner told his supporters in Burlington, Vermont. "You know what a gun-free zone is to a sicko?" Trump asked. "That's bait." Trump's rally was occurring at the same time as US President Barack Obama's televised town-hall forum addressing gun violence. Obama has repeatedly called for gun-control...

In the Tuesday Tribune, Edward Lawlor argued such signs make us safer. He claimed the research of one of the authors here, John Lott’s “More Guns, Less Crime,” has been “refuted.” But he ignores that more than two-thirds of the peer-reviewed research by criminologists and economists that look at national data support those findings and that not a single study finds a bad effect on murders, rapes or...

    The National Gun Victims Action Council (NGVAC) is calling on President Barack Obama to declare a “state of emergency” over fictional events, and then use that fictitious excuse to scrap the Constitution and impose his will under martial law. Gun control supporters really are apparently just this crazy (hat tip: AWR Hawkins): Americans are in the midst of a gun violence epidemic. The National Emergencies Act gives the president the power and responsibility to declare a state of emergency when the government lacks the procedures and capacity to address an unchecked natural or man-made public health epidemic.

The country's 6,000 uniformed officers have been exceptionally authorized to wear their firearms on their belts since November 2014 due to a heightened threat of Islamist attacks. In ordinary circumstances, police keep their firearms locked in their patrol cars. Last week, just hours before the Paris attacks, Norway's police chief had announced they would be...

    I see that Ferguson marked the anniversary of  the “murder” of the Gentle Giant with another “protest” of sorts. One speaker, Yonasda Lonewolf, declared: “Mike Brown was murdered here. This was the epicenter of the movement of ‘black lives matter.’ We still cannot get justice.” She added, “It’s time for us to not seek justice but to demand justice.”  So it appears that Big Guy’s job is indeed done here: he has fundamentally transformed America back to 1967.Detroit Riots, 1967Since our country continues to be besieged by both domestic and international thugs and terrorists it seems wise to acknowledge that...

    A year and a half ago, I wrote about the illegal "No Weapons" signs at rest stops in Alabama.  The Alabama Department of Transportation doubled down and declared the signs legal ... because.  Yesterday afternoon, Friday, the 24th of July, 2015, Governor Bentley stepped up to the plate and ordered the signs taken down.  From yellowhammernews.com reporting the Governor's tweet: Gov. Robert Bentley ‏@GovernorBentley I have ordered the AL Department of Transportation to remove signs banning weapons at all Alabama rest stops to comply with state law. Good for the Governor. He knows how to count. He is also...

    The movie theater shooting in Lafayette, Louisiana occurred in yet another place that banned permitted concealed handguns. The shooting occurred at the Grand Theater. It’s “conduct policy” openly bans the carrying of guns, just like where the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting occurred. While The Grand Theatre company owns three theaters in the area, none of the other local movie theaters that are owned by other companies appear to have a similar policy (Lafitte Cinema 4, Crowley Cinema IV, The Queen Cinema). . . .

    During a July 23 press conference, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)(D-CA-12th) suggested the problem with sanctuary city policies isn’t the sanctuary aspect but the continued the access to guns. An unidentified reporter asked Pelosi if she supports the current GOP push to force cities to comport with immigration laws, and Pelosi made clear that she does not. She then explained her opposition by making nameless references to the July 1 murder of Kathryn Steinle–allegedly shot to death by illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez on San Francisco’s Pier 14–and argued that sanctuary cities are not the problem. Pelosi said:...

    AUSTIN — Gov. Greg Abbott says he is reluctantly asking Texas Military Forces to arm soldiers at their home bases after Thursday’s attacks at military sites in Tennessee that killed four Marines and one sailor. Abbott said in a release Saturday that he will authorize Adjutant General John Nichols of the Texas National Guard to arm National Guard personnel at military facilities across Texas. Abbott’s move followed shootings on two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn. “It is with a heavy heart that I issue this order,” he said. The Republican governor said the Chattanooga events made “clear that our military...

    I see you’re conflicted on this Mr. President, so let me be perfectly clear:Muhammad was not a “lone gunman.” He was a jihadi; an agent of the Islamic State, our sworn enemy despite your hesitancy to reciprocate – or even participate.Nor was Muhammad even a terrorist – domestic or otherwise. Because prior to the age of deconstruction (i.e. B.O.) - when words still had meaning - terrorism was defined as “the use of violence or the threat of violence against civilians, in the pursuit of political goals.” Attacking a military target was considered an act of war. All that gets fuzzier...
