    The Kingsport Times-News ^ | December 8, 2017 | Holly Viers
    GATE CITY — As construction on the Route 23 bridges in Weber City continues, one small business owner has voiced concerns about the effect it’s having on her profits. Mary Murphy, owner of Gold & Guns in Weber City, told the Scott County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday that her business has declined noticeably over the past year or so. Though she attributes some of that decline to the lingering effects of the last recession, she believes the construction — and its estimated completion time of summer 2019 — is the main problem. “I do believe that summer of 2019...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | December 4, 2017 | Stephen Gutowski
    The House of Representatives will vote on national gun-carry reciprocity and gun background check fix bills this week. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 and the Fix NICS Act will be combined and likely voted on Wednesday, a GOP aide told the Washington Free Beacon Monday. "It is my understanding they may be combined," the aide said. "Rules is meeting at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday. They have both. Floor vote should be Wednesday." The House Committee on Rules website shows the texts of the two bills combined as well as an amendment filed by Rep. Dina Titus (D., Nev.)...

    --(snip) "There is even more to the story: CDC data also show that within our nation’s cities, black Americans are, on average, eight times more likely to be killed by firearms than those who are white. The rate of death by gun homicide for black people exceeds those among whites in all 50 states, but there is tremendous variation in the magnitude of this disparity. In 2015, a black person living in Wisconsin was 26 times more likely to be fatally shot than a white person in Wisconsin. At the same time, a black person in Arizona was “only” 3.2...

    Guns in the News ^ | 11-14-2017 | Tim Brown
    It was several years ago, during the usurper's time in the White House, that I reported on where the abundance of gun violence took place, including mass shootings.In another report, it was discovered that the majority of gun violence takes place in large metropolitan areas, and much of that happens in poor neighborhoods.Additionally, more than 90% of mass shootings have occurred in government-regulated, but unconstitutional, "gun free zones."All of these so-called "gun control" measures are only aiding to promote full on gun confiscation and gun prohibition, except for guns being in the hands of government. Most recently, ABC News has...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 28 oct 2017 | Annie Sweeney, Jason Meisner and Jeremy Gorner
    Timothy Ward was a convicted felon barred from possessing a firearm on the night he fatally shot a man during an argument on Chicago’s West Side. Minutes after the July 2015 slaying, police stopped a light-colored van and found the suspected murder weapon — a black revolver — under the front passenger seat where Ward had been sitting. The gun had been sold just four months earlier at Suburban Sporting Goods in Melrose Park, a cramped strip mall store about 10 miles from the gritty block where 25-year-old Charzelle Hayes was killed, according to Chicago police. Ballistics matched the Nagant...
  • Los Angeles Times: GOP quietly pushing a gun-lover’s pipe dream

    For a few days after the Las Vegas sniper attack, it seemed as if Congress might actually move to ban the device known as the “bump stock,” which the gunman used to convert his semiautomatic rifles into, essentially, machine guns that could fire 90 shots in 10 seconds into a crowded music festival. That moment — like so many before it — seems to have passed. So what gun policy measure are lawmakers discussing in Congress these days? An absurd yet dangerous proposal that would drastically undercut states’ abilities to set reasonable rules about who gets to carry a weapon....

    Bearing Arms ^ | 26 Oct, 2017 | Tom Knighton
    The National Rifle Association is reportedly being investigated by New York regulators. No, it’s not that the state has finally figured out a way to undermine the organization’s strong Second Amendment stance or its effectiveness throughout the nation in blocking infringements on our right to keep and bear arms. No, it’s something far more insidious. They’re concerned the NRA is selling their Carry Guard insurance without a license. New York regulators launched an investigation into the National Rifle Association’s role in the self-defense insurance program that bears its name. The probe by the state’s Department of Financial Services will focus...

    SPRINGFIELD — Downstate Democrats joined with Republicans Thursday to thwart a ban on devices that make a semi-automatic rifle shoot about as fast as a fully automatic weapon — arguing the bill would have outlawed too many types of weapons. State Rep. Jerry Costello, D-Smithton, said about 40 percent of the “50 to 60″ guns he owns would be banned under the bill.

    Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among a number of celebrities urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and concealed carry of firearms in the wake of the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this month. Laura Dern, Bill Hader, and Adam Scott are also taking part in the anti-gun campaign, as is noted gun control advocate Julianne Moore. The celebrities are part of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety PSA against the NRA specifically, and against gun rights generally. In typical Everytown fashion, the PSA does not present real solutions to the attack in Vegas–after...

    Radical liberals and others on the far-Left took to Twitter Monday morning to not only send their condolences to those affected by the massive shooting in Las Vegas, but also to use the event as a way to climb on their soapbox and politicize the incident. Among them was failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who wasted no time in using the tragedy to her political advantage, tweeting:

    Celebrities took to social media Monday morning just hours after the tragic Las Vegas mass shooting to call for increased gun control measures. Breitbart News reported that the attack occurred while country music singer Jason Aldean was playing and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department identified the attacker as 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock. He opened fire on concert-goers from an elevated position–the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. LVMPD SWAT members burst into Paddock’s room Sunday night and found him dead.

    Noted evolutionary biologist and atheist Richard Dawkins greeted the news of the mass shooting in Las Vegas by tweeting his contempt for Americans and the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. “Durn tootin’, great shootin’. Cool dude sertin’ he’s 2nd Mendment rahts. Hell yeah!” Dawkins tweeted, apparently attempting to mock a southern accent — perhaps in a reference to the country music festival at which the shooting took place. He added: “Every country has its psychopaths. In US they have guns”.

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) called for Congress to “get off its ass and do something” about gun violence after a deadly Las Vegas mass shooting that left at least 50 people dead. Murphy, who emerged as a leading figure in the push for gun control legislation after the deadly mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in his state of Connecticut, said it was “positively infuriating” that Congress had failed to pass laws to stop gun violence. “Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity. Last night’s massacre may go down as the deadliest in...

    Melrose Park police sent an appalling message over Labor Day weekend when they auctioned off an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle to raise money for their police union. EDITORIAL They apparently did not care that Melrose Park, the very town they have sworn to serve and protect, bans possession of AR-15s — semiautomatic rifles that can load magazines with multiple bullets. ADVERTISING The village bans the gun for good reason. Nobody need such a powerful weapon to protect themselves their homes or to hunt. And the guns can be exceptionally dangerous when they fall into the wrong hands. But, as Robert Herguth...

    Wife unit and I just completed painting our childrens rooms. Theme should be between K-3 , boy and girl. What posters/themes centered on education and religion would you put in their room? Below is a small list I have brainstormed, and I am interested in things that just ARENT taught as much anymore or not emphasized enough. When I was growing up my room was filled with posters to keep my mind going......most were hand made by mom. I'm sure there are nice ones that homeschoolers and teachers use that maybe I'm not thinking of. Thanks! FReegards!

    Gun ads have changed with the times. Political correctness is certainly not the name of the game in these classic pieces of gun marketing. It was just plain old fashion advertising back in the day. Hammer the hammer? Lawyers wouldn’t come within a football field of this one. Of course, hammering on a vintage revolver probably is a bad idea anyway…Oh no, that guy is teaching his son how to hunt, you say? Where are their iphones, video games and couch? Well, buddy, this is how a father is supposed to raise his son to be a man, not a...

    The U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago, among the busiest in the nation, must set its priorities to fit the times. Twenty years ago, the top priority might have been public corruption. Ten years ago, it might have been white-collar crime. EDITORIAL Today, as John Lausch prepares to take over the job, we urge the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago to focus on one priority above all others: Ridding our city of illegal guns. Shootings are the scourge of Chicago, so much so that President Donald Trump has mocked our city for its violence, though he has done nothing to combat...

    A man is charged with attempted murder and a raft of firearms offences after helping fend off home invaders, one of whom he’s now charged with shooting. Kyle Earl Munroe was arrested on July 12 after RCMP and Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a home invasion involving firearms at a home in Porters Lake. Police said that three men entered the residence with guns and a struggle took place with two men inside. The two in the home seized a firearm from one of the suspects and several shots were fired as the suspects fled. Police later...
