    An Asian man was arrested last night by California police, after abducting a woman who he thought was white so he could rape her in revenge for supposed anti-Asian hate crimes.

    The father of Ka'Mauri Harrison, the Harvey fourth-grader suspended last week after a teacher saw him move a BB gun out of the way during a virtual lesson, said the national response to the case has been "overwhelming," with offers of support from regular people and even the National Rifle Association.

"It's been overwhelming," Nyron Harrison said. Messages have been flooding in through Facebook and email, he said. "We've...

    Here's how BB guns came to be a favorite Christmas present for youngsters, and a whole lot more. - For well over 100 years, the BB gun has been a rite of passage for many youngsters. It was a training tool for the next rite of passage, the first real gun. Sadly, many missed out due to a widespread misuse of the BB gun that prompted many parents to skip that first step and go straight to the .22 a few years later. The infamous BB gun wars, where kids shot each other with BB guns, caused many to lose...

    Gun-owners, they are coming: on March 21, a Fredericksburg man was prosecuted and convicted of the misdemeanor crime of merely holding a B.B. gun in public. I know because I was in the trial, as the attorney defending Mr. Wolff. The Second Amendment protects the right to keep and bear arms. However, gun control activists are trying to criminalize gun ownership. Their next step is that you are a criminal if you take a gun out in public. If they have to let you own a gun, you can't ever take it out of its case. Liberals continue to try...

    Spreading that Christmas cheer. For this 6 year old boy, he got a BB gun from his grandfather. They took him out to shoot and nailed a shot at the milk carton on the first try. The look on his face is priceless, have a look. Sportsmen tradition is thriving well and its great to see this passion is being passed on down from generation to generation. I’m sure we were all like this when we first shot our first BB gun. Take a look at this priceless bb gun video here.

    By the early 1980s, Shep’s radio show was over. This movie idea was his last chance to avoid the poorhouse. Shep, Leigh and Clark collaborated on the screenplay, and she helped keep Shep off Clark’s set. Shep, who considered himself a co-director, was constantly “helping the actors” and haranguing visitors, most of whom had never heard of him. Shep was no longer a has-been. Like “the Old Man” he had finally won his own “major award.” And no one could steal this idea. Shep’s late-in-life success had been created out of the magical world of his own childhood, one he...

    If a white cop had shot and killed that 14-year-old kid in Houma last Tuesday, there's a good chance Houma would be a household word. The town dodged a racial bullet. Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's deputies responded in force to reports armed "men" had entered an abandoned house. Houma is not some sprawling, crime-riddled metropolis; chances are good everyone knew or could see the house was abandoned. It wasn't quite 6 p.m. - plenty of light left. Cameron Tillman, a black 14-year-old freshman at Ellender Memorial High School answered the door when the cops knocked. He was shot and killed. Initial...
