NAT’L – GUN RIGHTS – The hired guns of Instagram

When Kimberly Matte captions an Instagram post “suns out, guns out, buns out,” she mostly means it. The sun may be out, but she’s inside. Her buns are definitely out, because she’s wearing a lime-green thong. Technically, there’s only one gun out, but it’s an AR-10 battle rifle, so she’s still over-delivering. Matte has more than 84,000 followers on Instagram and recently founded her own social media marketing and modeling…

CA – GUN CRIME – A thwarted Dallas shooting goes viral. If only all gun violence got the same attention (VIDEO)

It’s unknown what exactly was in the man’s mind as he approached the Earle Cabell Federal Building in downtown Dallas on Monday, but his intent was easy to read. Clad in tactical gear and carrying an assault-style rifle and at least five 30-round magazines, the man — whom police identified as Brian Isaack…

CA – GUN RIGHTS – Needles declares itself a Second Amendment sanctuary

Can sanctuary, readily granted to people in some parts of California, be extended to provisions of the United States Constitution? Can actions of one tiny city be an instrument of change for state law? “The Needles City Council has voted unanimously to declare itself a Second Amendment sanctuary city,” reads a prepared statement from the City of Needles released Saturday. “In taking this action, the city became…

SD – LE – New state gun law prompts proposed ordinance change in Sioux Falls (VIDEO)

The city of Sioux Falls is looking to “cleanup” the wording of a city ordinance that can help local police find stolen guns. The city’s action is in response to a change in state law that prohibits local governments from making the final decision on gun purchases. For years Sioux Falls pawn shops have cross checked guns brought into their shop with a database to make sure…

NAT’L – INDUSTRY INSIDER – American Outdoor Brands Faces a Tough Q4

NAT’L – INDUSTRY INSIDER – American Outdoor Brands Faces a Tough Q4

Shares of American Outdoor Brands (NASDAQ:AOBC) are trading at levels they haven’t seen since 2014. Gun industry sales remain depressed, and another firearms retailer recently declared bankruptcy. As American Outdoor gets ready to report its fiscal fourth quarter and 2019 earnings on Wednesday, June 19, the firearms manufacturer continues to face a difficult outlook. Last quarter,…

DC – HUNTING – Trump opens 1.4 million federal acres to hunters, anglers

President Trump isn’t much of an outdoorsman, aside from golf. But maybe more than any president since Teddy Roosevelt, he understands the importance of others getting outside to boat, hunt, fish, shoot, and hike and their demands for access to federal lands and waterways. “He’s basically said, ‘Git-R-Done,’” said Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, who is spearheading the opening of 1.4 million acres and elimination of 7,500 regulations…

NAT’L – GUN SAFETY – This System Alerts Before Shooting

As mass shootings and gun violence continue to climb in the US, security has become one of the highest priorities for many organizations. A variety of new technologies have been developed to help prevent, detect and respond to these threats — including gunshot detection and improved security cameras. An original approach has been taken by AI security camera startup Athena Security. The company uses computer…

TX – Gun Safety – The Longview Police Department offers safety tips while kids are home alone this summer (VIDEO)

June is national safety month and the Longview Police Department is reminding parents of several safety hazards while their kids are home from school this summer. The possibilities of what could go wrong may seem endless, but there’s three things the Longview Police Department and Partners in Prevention are focusing on, guns, prescription medicine and alcohol. Leaving a gun lying around your house can lead to unwanted consequences. “We have had a…

TX – GUN CONTROL – Marijuana and gun laws at odds, beer-to-go and more new laws, new mayor Johnson ushers in new era in Dallas

For years, Joshua Raines has been using marijuana illegally to treat the epilepsy and PTSD he developed during his five years in the Army. He’s been eligible for a legal prescription of medical marijuana since 2015 but has resisted seeking one. If he did, the veteran and Purple Heart recipient would give up his right to purchase a gun. “Why am I going to give up one…

CA – GUN CONTROL/GUN RIGHTS – Changing the guns debate

If you follow the musings of Mark Cuban, billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks NBA team, you’d swear he’s considering a run for president of the United States. Similar to the current Oval Office occupant, Cuban is not at all reticent about sharing his opinions, on just about any subject. We won’t delve into all those opinions, just the one he expressed recently about the national debate…

MD – GUN CONTROL – Baltimore: More Gun Control, More Crime

Shootings are surging in Baltimore despite the presence of bans on “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines, two of the Democrats’ go-to gun controls. Maryland banned “high capacity” magazines and a variety of “assault weapons” via the Firearm Safety Act of 2013. That Act also required would-be handgun buyers to submit fingerprints to the state police as a part of the registration scenario. On March 27, 2017,…

MO – MEDIA – Editorial: Promising signs abound that the gun industry is losing its grip on power

MO – MEDIA – Editorial: Promising signs abound that the gun industry is losing its grip on power

The gun industry, whose political power once seemed unassailable, shows new signs of coming unraveled. A never-ending series of mass shootings around the country has thwarted the gun industry’s best efforts to portray itself as a front-line defender of freedom and liberty. A nation continually horrified by…

OH – MEDIA – Skip the petitions on background checks

Ohio voters tired of waiting for the General Assembly to expand background checks for gun buyers may just have to do it themselves. For years, lawmakers in Columbus have ignored sensible proposals that would close a loophole in gun-buying background checks by requiring those checks for nearly all gun purchases. Right now, such background checks are only required when licensed gun dealers are involved. Proponents of expanding the background checks for Ohio say they…

PA – HUNTING – Pennsylvania should keep the ban on Sunday hunting

Months back, Senate Bill 147 was reported out of the Senate Game & Fisheries Committee. Pennsylvania State Grange opposed it then, and we oppose it now. Advocates for Sunday hunting maintain that we need more licensees and that allowing Sunday hunting in some fashion will dramatically increase the numbers of hunters. It is presented as a father-child time and a new free time opportunity since the rest…

NAT’L – OPINION – Here are the lies liberals tell themselves about the Second Amendment

You’ll have heard it said by many liberals and even progressives that the Second Amendment centers on arming militias in a post-colonial America. But the reality behind the legal statute that enshrined gun rights in the Constitution is more nuanced, and far more sinister. As Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz notes in her book, “Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment,” the arming of state militias (which ultimately became the National…

NH – GUN POLITICS – Sununu Likely To Veto 2 Gun Control Bills Headed To His Desk

Two gun control bills are on their way to New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, who is likely to veto them. The House voted Thursday to go along with the Senate’s changes to a pair of gun-related bills. One would impose a three-day waiting period between the purchase and delivery of a gun. Opponents have called it an attack on gun shows and auctions, but supporters say creating…

Yet, the reality behind the legal statute that enshrined gun rights in the United States Constitution is more nuanced, and far more sinister.

DC – GUN POLITICS – Two Major Gun Control Bills Unveiled By Congressional Democrats

Two potentially sweeping gun violence prevention bills were introduced to Congress Thursday. If passed, the legislation would overhaul screening requirements for prospective gun buyers and prohibit the dissemination of digital files or code that could be used to 3D-print firearms. The first bill, the Handgun Purchaser Licensing Act, would incentivize state and local governments to implement a requirement that would-be gun owners first obtain a license before…
