IL – GUN CONTROL – Gun owners pushing back on fingerprint plan

Gun owners from around the state plan to remind Illinois lawmakers about their opposition to a measure that would require those seeking a Firearm Owners Identification card to submit fingerprints on the first day of the fall legislative session. Lawmakers return to Springfield on Oct. 28 for the first three days of the veto session. State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson said he expects it to…

TX – LE/ HOME DEFENSE- Morning News Says Cops Should ‘Defer’ to Gun Owners. They’re Totally Nuts.

The Dallas Morning News editorial page took a blindfolded backward step off the diving board Monday in an editorial asserting that police have an “obligation of deference” to armed homeowners in terms of who may shoot first. As its predicate for this insane suggestion, the paper exploits the horrible case of Atatiana Jefferson, who was shot to death in her own home Oct. 12 by a Fort Worth…

ID – GUN CONTROL – From Toxic To Staple: Gun Control Is Now Front And Center On The Campaign Trail

The politics of guns on the national stage are changing. Fast. And when Democratic presidential hopefuls got together in Las Vegas earlier this month to discuss gun policy the shift was crystal clear. Instead of running away from the issues, as the Democratic Party has for years, many of the candidates tried to one up each other on their gun control cred. “There’s too much power in the hands…

NY – HUNTING – Tompkins County Votes To Allow Rifle Hunting Of Big Game

Earlier this month, the Tompkins County Legislature narrowly voted in favor of a resolution that would allow rifle hunting for big game in the area, joining 58 other upstate New York counties that already granted such permission. While rifle hunting is already allowed for small game, such as ducks and rabbits, the provision expands it to include deer and bear, which previously could only be hunted with…

WA – RETAILERS – Research studies the complicated relationship gun retailers have with preventing suicide

A study published by UW researchers Thomas Walton and Jennifer Stuber this summer shows that the majority of gun retailers in Washington are willing to learn more about suicide prevention. The study surveyed 178 independent firearm retailers around the state asking questions about their businesses, their knowledge, and opinions on suicide and their willingness to learn more about suicide prevention efforts firearm retailers can take to save lives. The…

FL – LE/GUN RIGHTS – New hybrid patrol cars, drones; push for change to gun legislation.

During the summer, the Palm Beach Police Department added new hybrid vehicles and a new drone purchase to their crime-fighting resources. Chief of Police Nicholas Caristo also pushed for a reform on gun legislation, following an incident with a pro-open carry group. Caristo and Mayor Gail Coniglio sent to Sen. Bobby Powell on July 23, in a push to change the wording of the Florida Weapons and…

IL – OPINION – Restrictions won’t solve gun violence

Banning firearms and taking guns and ammunition off store shelves may have great virtue-signaling value, but they aren’t serious solutions to gun violence. Even if American gun restrictions rivaled those of European countries, the U.S. would still lead the industrial world in gun-related homicides. Why? Because Americans are generally more inclined to commit murder. According to an American Journal of Medicine report, Americans commit murder without firearms…

NAT’L – GUN SAFETY – After School Shootings, a Push for Openness Over Barricades

Repeated school shootings have yet to force action on gun control in Washington, but safety advocates are trying to build support for another strategy to keep children safe: smart school design.

Two bills pending in Congress would provide school districts with more information about safe school design, as well as money to pay for design services. As districts focus more intently on safety, some architects…

TX – GUN POLITICS – Police Groups Slam Beto’s Plan to Send Cops to Collect Americans’ Guns

TX – GUN POLITICS – Police Groups Slam Beto’s Plan to Send Cops to Collect Americans’ Guns

National law enforcement organizations harshly criticized Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s plan to send police officers to collect AR-15s and AK-47s from those who refuse to turn them in under his mandatory buyback scheme. In interviews with the Washington Free Beacon, leaders from groups representing hundreds of thousands of law…

MA – OPINION – Wolf Hunting: Unique Challenges and Solutions to Lone-Wolf Terrorism

Mandalay Bay Hotel, Las Vegas. Tree of Life Synagogue, Pittsburgh. Walmart, El Paso.

These shootings are a grave reminder of the epidemic of self-radicalization sweeping the United States. Today, lone-wolf attacks in the US are more deadly than ever before and are often tied to white supremacist ideologies, which disproportionately impact minority communities. Combatting this threat requires new approaches to traditional counter-terrorism measures, including tightening…

NAT’L – MILITARY – This rifle could be a dark horse candidate for the Army’s next-generation squad weapon — and you can snag one next year (VIDEO)

The Army says it’s settled on three defense contractors to battle it out to become the service’s M4 carbine and M249 Squad Automatic Weapon replacements, but at least one other company is hoping that a bit of consumer approval could help upset the competition. On Thursday, MARS Inc. and Cobalt Kinetics unveiled their dark horse submissions for the Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapon program, a carbine and light machine…

MN – INDUSTRY INSIDER – Turkish company Sarsilmaz sets sights on US gun market

They’re the new kid on the block that’s 140 years old — and the largest company that’s all but unheard of in the United States. That, in a nutshell, describes Sarsilmaz, the privately owned Turkish small arms manufacturer that offers a line of handguns in the United States under the SAR USA brand, which it founded in 2018 to import and distribute the firearms in the U.S….

INT’L – GUN RIGHTS – Queensland police gave serving officer permission to run rightwing gun blog

A popular Australian gun blog, Ozzie Reviews, which is frequently critical of firearms laws and posts far-right political content, is run by a serving Queensland police officer with formal permission from his superiors. Police records obtained by Guardian Australia show the senior constable, Corrie Dixon, was given a $6,300 taxpayer grant to attend a specialist firearms training course in the US three years ago as part of his police…

NAT’L – GUN POLITICS – CNN Actually Deserves a Round of Applause For Pressing Beto On His Gun Confiscation Scheme (VIDEO)

It’s easy for conservatives to launch attacks on CNN. After all, they spend the majority of their time pushing their liberal, anti-Trump narrative. But Alisyn Camerota deserves praise for pushing 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke on his gun confiscation scheme. He had previously said he expected gun owners to hand over their “weapons of war” (or what the rest of us normal folks refer to as AR-15s). O’Rourke…

VA – GUN CONTROL – Virginia in the Crosshairs

National Gun Control groups are pouring money into Virginia ahead of the state’s November legislative elections, seeking to energize voters frustrated by the way Republican lawmakers shut down a special session on gun violence called in the wake of a deadly mass shooting in Virginia Beach this spring and hoping to score a win in what some say is a bellwether for next year’s national races. According to…

MI – GUN RIGHTS – Michigan House bills would make CPLs optional, allow gun owners to carry in gun-free zones

Michigan residents wouldn’t need a permit to carry a concealed firearm – and could carry them into locations where they’re currently off-limits – under bills currently up for debate in a state House committee. The main piece of the five-bill package, House Bill 4770, would eliminate current restrictions on carrying concealed weapons and storing them in vehicles, and make a CPL license unnecessary – although gun owners…

CT – COURTS – Father Of Sandy Hook Victim Awarded $450K From Man Who Said Shooting Was Faked

The father of a Jewish boy killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School won a $450,000 judgment against the editor of a book that claimed the 2012 massacre at the school never happened.

A jury in Wisconsin determined the amount to be paid to Leonard Pozner, whose 6-year-old son Noah was the youngest of the 26 people killed at the Connecticut school. The award came four…

CA – OPINION – THE OTHER SIDE: What the gun lobby gets wrong about the 2nd Amendment

The Supreme Court will hear a gun control case in December that could significantly limit the ability of state and local governments to regulate guns for public safety reasons. The case involves a New York City regulation on transporting handguns that was repealed in July. Although that original rule is no longer in effect, for now the court has not determined the matter to be moot, so…
