AK – At Issue – A hunter does some soul-searching on the issue of toxic ammo

ALASKA DISPATCH NEWS.COM March 22, 2017 – We had flown into duck country early in the afternoon with plenty of time to get camp in shape before the evening hunt. Once all was in order, we sat out front of the cabin in camp chairs, two Labrador retrievers laying between us, waiting a bit before we headed out to a favorite pond for the evening flight. A narrow tidal…

KY – At Issue Opinion – NRA demand endangers Kentuckians

LEXINGTON HERALD LEADER January 27, 2017 – Five of the 24 Lexington homicide victims in 2016 included, clockwise from top left, Trinity Gay, Nathaniel McNealy, Caleb Hallett, Maryiah Coleman and Nova Marie Gallman. Around 350,000 Kentuckians have completed firearms safety courses and passed background checks to legally carry a concealed weapon in the last 20 years. Now the state Senate is poised to gut the training, background checks and licensing requirements. Senate…

It’s true: More people use guns to kill themselves than to kill others.

WASHINGTON POST September 12, 2016 – A year later, I remain haunted by the death of a friend, 39 when he shot himself, because I’m pretty sure his life could have been saved. Local police called his death a “suicide by gunshot” — one of more than 20,000 people a year who take their own lives with a firearm. Yes, it’s true: More people use guns to kill themselves…

VA – At Issue – I Shot Myself in the Head and Survived

THE TRACE.COM September 13, 2016 – About 85 percent of people who attempt suicide with a gun will die. Christen McGinnes, 47, is a statistical exception: On October 22, 2010, she pointed a .357 revolver at her head, and pulled the trigger. Today, 46 surgeries later, she is a volunteer with the Trauma Survivors Network at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia. Here is her story, in her own words, as told to Kerry…

TX – Opinion/At Issue – Why the guns-on-campus debate matters for American higher education

BIG STORY.AP.ORG August 16, 2016 – As of Aug. 1, 2016, a new law allows concealed handguns in college and university buildings in Texas. It’s already had an impact on me as professor of religious studies at the University of Texas at Austin. Thanks to this law, I set foot in a federal court building for the first time. And I was not alone. The courtroom was packed. Other…

Nat’l – At Issue – Whatever Happened to Michael Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Crusade?

SLATE.COM July 5, 2016 – For those who want to see legislative movement on the gun issue, it was natural to feel excited by these events in the moment. But it’s now just as easy to feel deflated by their failure to produce any real change. The measures proposed in the Senate were rejected in a vote that was as perfunctory as it was inevitable. The House, meanwhile, adjourned for its…

IL – At Issue – What I discovered as a pro-gun-control member of the NRA

TRIBUNE May 27, 2016 – If the Republicans had nominated a skunk in the contest against Hillary Clinton, the National Rifle Association would have heartily embraced the odoriferous Mr. Stinky. A week ago, the NRA, which has millions of members and is eager to target congressional races in which guns are an issue, endorsed Donald Trump for president. I joined a few years back to see what the NRA was up to. It was my way…

NJ – At Issue: The Other Side – Smart guns still face irrational opposition, but their time will come

STAR-LEDGER November 9, 2015 – It’s hard to know whether Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen) is waving a white flag or playing rope-a-dope, but she made the right call in shelving the Childproof Handgun Act, on the remote chance that she can get smart guns onto the market and save lives. There’s just one flaw with her plan: The malignant profiteers who control gun groups give no sign that they…

NC – At Issue – Susan Ladd: Bringing reason back into the gun control debate

Editor’s Note: At Issue is an occasionally used feature section wherein writers and reporters offer opposing views to that of GunPro Plus commentaries.

GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA NEWS & RECORD October 11, 2015 – It is a sad reflection on the times we live in that, at the beginning of this semester, I found myself scanning the faces of my students at University of North Carolina at Greensboro, pondering a question…

The Case That Could Refine the 2nd Amendment

THE DAILY BEAST September 23, 2015 – Last Friday, the powerful United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued a decision evaluating the constitutionality of a ten-part gun control law. Two of the three judges upheld six parts of the law while a dissenting judge would have upheld all ten. The most important provision that was struck down limited the number of handguns a resident could register…
