    A man who said he was having trouble with his car convinced Kenneth Byrd, age 67, to open his door. His wife and 19 year old granddaughter were at home at the time. That was all the opportunity the three man home invasion crew needed. The trio burst into the home, guns drawn and threatened the residents. According to local media reports, what happened next was nothing short of terrifying: The Byrds were pushed to the back of their home and instructed to open a safe. When the men tried to rape the couple’s granddaughter, Byrd grabbed a gun and exchanged...
  • Guns in senior portraits OK if done tastefully, Nebraska school board says

    You’ve seen those senior class photos of kids posing with footballs and musical instruments. Now graduating seniors attending a central Nebraska school district are free to pose with firearms for their school yearbook picture, as long as it’s done tastefully. School board members voted 6-0 Monday to allow such photos in the Broken Bow Public Schools after parents pressed for the change, according to Superintendent Mark Sievering. The community of 3,500 people is rural, about 65 miles northwest of Kearney. Hunting, skeet and trap are popular in the community and firearms are common, Sievering said. Broken Bow’s annual Nebraska One...

    On October 22, recent Islamic convert Michael Zehif-Bibeau shot and killed a Canadian Forces reservist, then went into Parliament Hill with rifle in hand, but the carnage that could have followed was prevented when a good guy with a gun--Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers--shot and killed the attacker. According to the Toronto Sun, Zehif-Bibeau was "just outside the Parliamentary library" and therefore close to reaching the MPs when Vickers stopped the attack. Reuters reports that the attacker was a mere 60 feet away from the MPs when Vickers intervened. Vickers' role as Sergeant-at-Arms is largely ceremonial. However, he is a 29-year veteran...

    Former border patrol agent, convicted on drug charges, appeals to high justices after lower courts bar him from selling weapons. The Supreme Court will decide whether the federal prohibition on firearms for felons terminates all ownership rights. The US Supreme Court agreed on Monday to decide whether a Florida man convicted on drug charges and forced to give up his firearms under federal law could sell the guns or transfer ownership to his wife or a friend. The court agreed to hear an appeal filed by Tony Henderson, a former US border patrol agent who was convicted of distributing marijuana...

    Americans are inundated with media coverage and politicians warning them of dire threats: Ebola, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the war on Christmas. The truth, though, is that the most-hyped threats are often not actually that threatening to Americans, while larger dangers go mostly ignored. That should tell you something about how our political system and media can distort threats, leading Americans to overreact to minor dangers while ignoring the big, challenging, divisive problems - like climate change - that we should actually be worried about. Obsessing about possible threats is something of a beloved national pastime...

The assumption is that Americans are biased against black people. The reality is very different.

Capping an investigation that began almost two years ago, separate trials are scheduled this month in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va., for a civilian Navy intelligence official and a hot-rod auto mechanic from California who prosecutors allege conspired to manufacture an untraceable batch of automatic-rifle silencers. The exact purpose of the silencers remains hazy, but court filings and pretrial...

He died in a bullet-riddled blue Hyundai targeted by 116 police rounds, which also wounded four innocent bystanders.

    For years gun control advocates have tried to turn incidents of 'gun violence' into a public health issue in order to justify wide reaching government regulations, but a new scientific poll from the National Shooting Sports Foundation shows the vast majority of Americans view violence committed with guns as a criminal issue, not one of public health. The poll also shows an overwhelming majority of Americans believe the Centers for Disease Control should be focused on combating illness and disease, not 'gun violence.' An overwhelming 84 percent of survey respondents said gun violence is a criminal justice issue, rather than...

    When former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control groups release a report, they consistently garner massive, uncritical news coverage. Alas. With the huge number of factual mistakes in these reports, you would think that reporters would have grown wary of pushing their propaganda. For example, Bloomberg’s Everytown, Mothers Demand Action, and Mayors Against Illegal guns have been caught padding the number of school shootings. While Everytown claimed 74 school shootings occurred between the Newtown, Connecticut shooting in December 2012 and June 2014, Politifact, which rated Everytown’s claim as “mostly false,” put the number of “incidents such as Sandy...

    One way scam artists make money is by peddling mislabeled goods. The label on the can says “Wild Alaskan Salmon,” but what’s really inside is codfish from a filthy breeding pen in China, plus some food coloring. Selling mislabeled goods is illegal, but there’s nothing illegal about mislabeled laws. Michael Bloomberg knows that difference, and he is exploiting it. Right now in the state of Washington, Bloomberg is pushing a November ballot measure that is promoted as being about background checks for private sales. But it is really a law to criminalize most gun owners, including those who never sell...

He says he doesn't necessarily identify with either major political party, and he skews libertarian. The main throughline in his politics is defending...

    People believe that crime has gotten worse. But over the past two decades, murder and robbery in the U.S. are down by more than half, and rape by a third, even as complaints about “rape culture” grow louder.... Since crime is down, the media find the few cities, such as Indianapolis and Bismarck, North Dakota, where crime is up. If they can’t find increased crime, they focus on rare, lurid cases like mass shootings and serial killers. Even as life gets safer, people get the impression that the world is falling apart. Then rule-makers overreact.

Under a proposal backed by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, city and county officials would ask gun shops and ammo suppliers who have sales contracts with law enforcement departments around the state to follow certain “sales and marketing safeguards,” when conducting business. Those safeguards include asking the stores to run background checks on employees, train personnel to...

    Never before have I felt so naked. Now more than ever, I wish I was armed. And I’m not alone. Any and all home-grown Islamic terrorism should be able, if need be, to be met by a well-armed civilian militia. The United Kingdom has had two beheadings of members of the public in the last two years, with neither police nor civilians able to prevent it. It has prohibitive gun laws. With news of the ISIS plot to randomly abduct members of the Australian public and behead them, Australian sentiment on guns is dramatically shifting. It appears Australians are finally...

A store employee told police that three masked robbers came into the station and shot him. The employee told police he returned fire and hit the suspects, who then fled on foot.

    Despite nine counts of theft, county judge labels accused thieves ‘victims’ Police in South Texas captured two illegal alien teens who they say were part of a burglary ring which targeted ranch homes in secluded areas looking mainly for firearms. Strangely enough, pro-amnesty supporters did not assemble outside the Hidalgo County courthouse yesterday to plead for a path to citizenship for 17-year-old Julio Zapien Calderon or his 14-year-old accomplice.

    No Lawyers - Only Guns and Money ^ | 9/23/14 | John Richardson
    The gun prohibitionists are always in a tizzy about "the Internet sale of guns". Everytown Moms for Illegal Mayors is making a big deal about "Internet sales" in the campaign for the Washington State universal background check initiative I-594. That initiative, if passed, would mandate universal background checks for all sales and transfers of firearms. Of course, they are being helped by their allies in the Seattle media with articles like this giving the impression that Facebook is just one big gun exchange. Here is what the Brady Campaign sent out to their true believers in their Toolkit 2014 which...
  • Bloomberg: Colorado Gun Recall Towns So Rural, They Don’t Have Roads

    In what may come as a surprise to residents of Colorado Springs and Pueblo, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t think those cities have roads. Bloomberg told Rolling Stone that he was “sorry” about the recalls of two state senators last year over the Democratic state legislature’s gun-control. “Colorado Springs is the second largest city in Colorado, Mr. Mayor,” said Herpin. “and not only do we have plenty of roads, but we are also home to the United States Air Force Academy, the U.S. Olympic Training Center and Committee Headquarters (which moved here from New York City), major...

    ith a smile on his face, George Zimmerman spent Saturday afternoon posing for photos, sharing hugs and shaking hands with gun enthusiasts at a firearms expo in Lake Mary.. "It's so odd to me," said Zimmerman, about the celebrity treatment he receives in public. "[But] it is appreciated." In his first interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Zimmerman described life after his acquittal last year in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The former Neighborhood Watch volunteer shot the unarmed black teen in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012. Now life for the 30-year-old is completely different. He's always moving. He's...

The ballot initiative, if passed by voters on November 4 (and it currently enjoys overwhelming support), will require universal background checks for all firearm purchases in the state.
