BREAKING :
The survivors of the Rancho Tehama shooting are suing the industry that they say allowed Kevin Neal to kill five people, and injure 18 others. After a domestic violence arrest, Neal was banned from having guns. So he built his murder weapons -- two homemade AR-15 style rifles called ghost guns. So-called ghost gun companies sell parts that can be assembled into these weapons. As long as those parts are 80% complete or less... normal gun laws do not apply.Moments after firing a gun for the first time, Alicea Burton proudly displayed the result of her marksmanship: a human silhouette target perforated with more than two dozen 9 mm holes.On the third anniversary of the tragic February 2018 school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, President Joe Biden issued his administration’s first significant push for new gun control measures.It’s widely understood that the current occupants of the White House, the Biden-Harris Administration, have positioned themselves as the most anti-gun team this country has ever seen on Pennsylvania Avenue. Leading up to the 2020 election, NRA made abundantly clear the threats these two presented to law-abiding gun owners, and both the President and Vice President spelled out how deeply opposed they each are to the fundamental right to purchase, possess, and carry firearms for personal protection.TN Gov. Bill Lee is renewing his push to allow handguns to be carried in public without a permit, and local law enforcement leaders are pushing back with renewed opposition. Lee announced during his recent State of the State address that he will push again for the legislation, which failed to make it through the Tennessee General Assembly’s COVID-shortened session last year.

IL – HUNTING – Reversing the negative trend of hunter participation

Jared Duquette is swimming upstream and he knows it. But, he’s doing more than treading water. Duquette, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Hunter Heritage Program Manager, sees himself making progress. His job is to reverse the negative trend in hunter participation. Like virtually every other state in the Union, Illinois is seeing a precipitous drop in hunters. The number has dropped nearly two percent every year since the mid-1970s. Several things happened in mid-70s that sent hunter numbers spiraling downward. A new farm bill encouraged farmers to till every available foot of land, leading to the loss of upland game habitat. There were several severe winters. And, deer herds and turkey flocks were basically non-existent at that point. “Last year Illinois had 157,000 resident hunters,” Duquette said. “If you were to calculate the percentage of people that hunt from all Illinois residents it’s 1.9 percent now. It’s a small minority of people that hunt. We want to reverse that trend.” He readily admits it’s an uphill battle. Hunting is largely a legacy activity. Children are taught to hunt by their parents or grandparents. With less people hunting every year, it’s just logical that fewer people are learning the joys of hunting. That’s why Duquette is taking a broad-based approach. “It’s a cultural thing,” he said. “There are regulatory things that happen. There are many different angles you have to tackle if you want to try to bolster the number of hunters. How you learned to hunt is how your dad, grandpa or even your mom taught you. We don’t have that natural mechanism in place. So, we have to fill that gap.  [full article]
