DELAWARE ONLINE.COM April 19, 2018 – It appears that Gov. John Carney is getting impatient on gun control. On Wednesday, he called on lawmakers to hold an up-or-down vote on a slew of gun-control bills, although it is increasingly uncertain whether Democrats will be able to pass them all. “I would encourage the members … in each chamber to give each of those pieces of legislation a vote,” Carney said. The governor’s comments came as three of the most high-profile bills are having…[FULL ARTICLE]
LANSING STATE JOURNAL.COM April 19, 2018 – It’s been a tough time for shooting sports enthusiasts, what with the Parkland, Florida shootings and a national push to put more controls on guns in an important effort to make schools safer. So, the success of two mid-Michigan teens — Sara Nevin, 17, of Holt, and Lillian Warren, 14, of Perry — who are competing in the National Junior Olympics Shooting Championships in Colorado is breeding excitement at Michigan State University’s Demmer…[FULL ARTICLE]

SHELBY MURDOC | April 15, 2018 — London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, sent out a Tweet recently that is significant for many reasons. “No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife,” the Mayor of one of the greatest cities in the English-speaking world sent out for the world to see. But that wasn’t all. There was more than a declaration that no justification for carrying a knife exists. “Anyone who does will be caught,” he warned. “And they will feel the full force of the law.”
This is amazing. The mayor of London, capital of one of the greatest nations in the history of humankind, is warning his city’s residents that no one ever has an excuse to carry a knife and that his city’s law enforcement agencies will use their “full force” against those who defy this decree.
London’s police force, of course, is fully equipped with the latest and greatest tactical gear available, probably rivaling that of most militaries on the planet. The city’s legal system is one of the oldest and most-respected in the world. And the mayor of London is threatening that they will be used against anyone who carries a knife. [read more]
JIM MATTHEWS | Friday, April 13, 2018 — This has happened before. The Mojave National Preserve released its Management Plan for Developed Water Sources on March 20 along with the environmental assessment of the plan’s impacts, effectively laying the groundwork for the abandonment or removal of well over 100 historic man-made water sources and developed springs used by wildlife.
Wildlife enthusiasts have been down this road before on the Preserve, when its second superintendent, Mary Martin, directed the removal and destruction of historic cattle water sources that had served wildlife for over 75 years. This was a direct violation of the Preserve’s own management plan that called for the evaluation of the impacts that water removal would have before they were removed. That evaluation never happened, but over 100 water sources that benefited wildlife were removed that time around.
Now, this week’s document lists four alternatives for action within the plan, but all four would lead to the loss of all but two or three of the developed water sources within designated wilderness areas. It would also lead to the loss of dozens of water sources outside of wilderness. [read more]
BOB ROGERS | Wednesday, April 11, 2018 — On Thursday April 5th, a federal district court judge ruled that Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healy’s ban on “lookalike” ARs did not violate the Second Amendment. Pro-gun advocates can argue all they want about the 2008 Heller decision and whether or not Justice Antonin Scalia in his affirmation meant to include today’s ARs under the “in common use” phrase in the 2A. Certainly, the millions of ARs in common use today would seem to indicate such constitutional protection was guaranteed as opposed to, say, the military M16 rifle. The select fire version would fall under the Heller restriction as ‘not for civilian use’ and no one would argue the point. Well, almost no one. There are others who would take that bet any day.

ALAN KORWIN | Friday, April 6, 2018 — Calls to outlaw guns, gun possession, accessories and similar wild-eyed notions now percolating through a portion of our youth and culture are… illegal.
So called “news” media, involved in whipping up the public and unsuspecting youngsters into a frenzy to ban gun types, gun parts, all guns, and places where people can have guns for all legal purposes — like defense against murderers — are an affront to our society and our Constitution. When did teachers lose their right to keep and bear arms exactly? The guarantees of The U.S. Bill of Rights can just be… lost?
People are saying the horrific events of the recent past could never have happened if our rights weren’t somehow squelched in the first place. [read more]
STEVE COMUS | Friday, March 30, 2018 – As I watched coverage of the various public demonstrations around the country recently in the aftermath of the school shooting in Florida earlier this year, I scratched my head. Theatre of the absurd is the best way to describe what I think I saw. “Virtually amazing.”
The tragic shooting represented one of the most obvious series of government breakdowns and failures imaginable. It demonstrated in horrific terms what can happen when people rely on government to protect them. Yet in lemming-like manner, the protesters invited society to disarm fellow citizens so that everyone can be equally vulnerable to attacks that no one else, then, would be able to stop.
But it is the demonstrations themselves that I want to discuss here, because they were fascinating in a number of ways. For openers, it has been estimated that the actual size of the demonstration in the nation’s Capitol actually was about a quarter the size claimed by organizers, and other observers have estimated that only about one tenth of those in the demonstration were students. Those items aside, what if most of the demonstrators were students, and what if the number was as claimed? [read more]
