    SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU) -- The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a measure that would ban the city employee retirement system from investing in companies that participate in firearm and ammunition manufacturing. The resolution by the supervisors could have a ripple effect throughout the country as the debate about gun control grows in the wake of a mass shooting in Orlando two weeks ago at a gay nightclub that left 50 people dead and several others injured. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is trying to gather support nationwide by asking the mayors of both Boston and New York...

    I have always been a pistol shooter. Even the first time I was out on the range, I loved everything about shooting, from the smell of the gunpowder to the sound the steel makes when it is hit by a bullet. I think thatís what got me hooked on competitive shooting. I was 9 years old when I attended and watched my first Glock Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) match in Columbia, S.C., and my whole family attended to see what it was all about. MY FIRST USPSA MATCH was the North Carolina Sectional in 2012. I had never even been...

    There are millions of Americans who want to restrict firearm ownership and use by one degree or another. While you may disagree with those people, at least theyíre consistent. For the most part, die-hard gun grabbers donít own firearms, and have probably never even held a gun before. Theyíre not hypocrites, unlike the handful of politicians and celebrities who often lead them. Itís been pointed out by Second Amendment supporters for years, that the wealthy and famous liberals who say they hate gun so much, are typically flanked by professionally trained and armed security guards at all times.

Distressed that the murder of 50 night club patrons by an Islamic terrorist in Florida has not sufficiently weakened GOP support for the Second Amendment, more than two dozen Democrats seized the House floor for more than a day, vowing to block House business until their demands are met. Sit-in participant Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa) used the event to call for "a major revision of the Second Amendment, because Americans don't agree with it and we've had it. The Amendment may have...

    As congressional Democrats spent the week pressing for the passage of new gun control legislation, violent felons in Virginia were able to take steps towards having their right to own a firearm restored thanks to action taken by the stateís Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe. When McAuliffe restored the voting rights for 206,000 felons in a move critics say was politically motivated, he also opened the door for those felons to have their right to own a firearm restored. Previously, felons would individually have to petition the executive branch to have their civil rights restored. Petitioners would have to fill out...

    If the news reports are correct, the latest ďgun controlĒ proposal being put forward by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, is a ďmeasure that would block people on the Transportation Security Administrationís noĖfly list from buying firearms,Ē according to ABC News. There is one major problem with that proposal: It is potentially unconstitutional since it would take away a constitutional rightóyour Second Amendment right to bear armsóat the discretion of a government official in a secret, nontransparent process that has no adequate due process protections.

    But in the wake of Omar Mateen's bloody rampage in Orlando, gun control advocates think that overcoming the passionate opposition of firearms owners and imposing a ban on a difficult to define class of "assault weapons" is a swell idea whose time has come. This prohibition will somehow be different.
  • Supreme Court turns away challenge to Connecticut ban on many semiautomatic weapons

    The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a Second Amendment challenge to a Connecticut law banning many semiautomatic rifles. The law, enacted in 2013 following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., made it a crime to sell or possess the firearms, which critics call assault weapons. The decision not to hear the case, not long after the mass shooting in Orlando, Fla., does not set a Supreme Court precedent. But it is part of a trend in which the justices have given at least tacit approval to broad gun-control laws in states and localities...
  • When Evil Comes for Us

    When law abiding citizens have no more tools with which to defend ourselves, what will we do when evil comes for us? Here is one of many problemsóand in my view the MOST DANGEROUS problemówith the liberal position of banning ďassault weaponsĒ after the Orlando shooting: Guns are tools, and nothing more. They can be tools used for good or tools used for evil. The same can be said of any tool. A hammer is a tool designed to hit things. It can hit a nail (a good use) or a personís head (an evil use). A box cutter is...

    The Senate is invoking a cloture vote on amendments offered by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) that would expand background checks and permit the attorney general to prevent anyone with a "reasonable belief" of having terrorist ties from purchasing firearms. These legislative measures come after the horrific Orlando attack, where 49 people were shot and killed by Omar Mateen, who pledged allegiance to ISIS during the attack. It's the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.Last week, Sen. Murphy launched a 15-hour filibuster, holding up a spending bill to fund the Department of Justice until a agreement could be reached to hold...

  • Horowitz: How the Democrats are Disarming Us

    According to a Gallup poll taken in the week after the atrocity in Orlando, only 29% of Democrats thought this was an Islamic terror attack. Fully 60% of all Democrats attributed the attack to "domestic gun violence." Moreover 42% of independents felt the same way. Only 44% attributed it to the Islamic holy war that has been declared on America and the West.[1]How is this possible? During the massacre, the terrorist himself took pains to post messages declaring that his acts were acts of Islamic terror against America. "Now taste the Islamic state vengeance," one message said. Another warned, "in...

    Hi, all, very excited I joined NRA with their EasyPayLife plan on Friday. Now I'm want to move forward. As I select a handgun, I do plan to try different models at gun ranges and talk with close friends who shoot. I know in time I will find something that I really connect with. And before I purchase, I will have lots of solid training and hopefully some sort of certification(s) under my belt (suggest a few if you think of them). Meanwhile, I would appreciate suggestions. I want a model that is classic, easy to care for, good power,...
