    SANTA FE, N.M. -- New Mexico has granted funds to pay for possible prosecutions connected to last year's fatal film-set shooting of a cinematographer by actor Alec Baldwin, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported Thursday. The state Board of Finance greenlit more than $317,000 to cover the cost of investigating potential charges in the shooting on the set of “Rust” outside Santa Fe. First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies made an emergency request for the funds to go toward a special prosecutor, special investigator, several experts and other personnel.

    The United States Postal Service has been monitoring protesters around the country for anti-gun and ant-Biden activity, according to newly unearthed intelligence assessments. Postal inspectors tracked the activities of gun rights activists in Virginia and far-right groups making their way to Washington, D.C. to protest President Biden's election, according to documents obtained by the Cato Institute. Cato obtained heavily redacted records through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that laid out postal inspectors' spying from September 2020 to April 2021, including their covert social media surveillance through a program called Internet Covert Operations Program (iCOP).

    Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit this week seeking answers from the Secret Service related to the Hunter Biden gun incident in Delaware four years ago. The conservative legal advocacy group filed its initial FOIA request in March 2021, just after reports emerged about a handgun belonging to President Joe Biden’s son getting thrown in the trash near a Delaware high school in October 2018 by his sister-in-law Hallie Biden, with whom he was in a romantic relationship. The Secret Service has denied any involvement in responding to the incident, and after the agency declined to hand...

    Realistic bear defense drills can help prepare gun owners for actual situations. The success of Eli Dicken in stopping a mass murder in the early stages, with excellent marksmanship at a claimed 40 yards, has engendered a plethora of people creating and executing some form of a “Dicken Drill” of ten shots at 40 yards.There have been a number of “bear defense” exercises, usually arranged to simulate a worst-case scenario. I know of one such scenario, as it was related to me, by the inventor/trainer who ran it for a major agency.The “bear” ran on a cart, as I recall,...

    This week, Congressman Chris Jacobs (R-NY) introduced the “Federal Assault Weapons Licensing Act,” a bill that would establish a licensing system for prospective purchasers of modern sporting rifles (MSR). Per the legislation, one would need to take a mandatory safety course, pass an FBI background check, submit fingerprints and provide proof of identity as part of the licensing process. The license would need to be renewed every five years. Anyone who already owns an MSR would be grandfathered in, however, if they wanted to buy an additional MSR they would need a license. “My legislation is common sense and provides...

    On Wednesday, Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis issued a statement claiming that he would work with Florida lawmakers to penalize credit card companies like Visa and MasterCard should they apply a new sales code to distinguish firearm purchases at U.S. gun stores. The announcement follows claims in the media that Visa, MasterCard, and American Express will create a new merchant category code for gun sellers. According to gun control advocates, the new sales code provides banks and credit card firms with tools to identify irregular patterns of purchases, such as a potential mass shooter stockpiling weapons and ammunition and...

    “You have to stop and realize how much it’s changed you,” - snip - Yet five years since the massacre at Route 91, little else has, when it comes to mass shootings in the U.S. The suspect, a 64-year-old white man who took his own life by the time authorities entered his room, was identified, yet no motive was ever determined. - snip - And the survivors, traumatized and struggling to heal — an estimated 22,000 people attended the festival’s third day — find it hard to agree upon anything. Even the official death toll is a point of fierce...

    If you walk past the Wyoming Republican Party’s tent these days, beware. You may have to dodge members being thrown out of the three-ring circus. On Saturday, the party’s overachieving central committee censured Sen. Cale Case of Lander, denied support to Republicans running as independents in November and condemned the actions of a legislative committee and 10 GOP lawmakers. The state party told Case, a Republican lawmaker for the past 30 years, to join a different party or run as an independent. Karl Allred of Uinta County bluntly delivered a similar message to Republicans who plan to challenge GOP primary...
