Ann Arbor can continue to sterilize deer but the state would be prohibited from issuing new sterilization permits until 2022 under legislation approved early Thursday morning by Michigan's Republican-led House.
Carson City held a public information meeting Wednesday to provide updates on the partial closure of the City’s Rifle and Pistol Range.
As a result, the City is only opening the range to law enforcement, military members and certified gun clubs Monday through Friday. Each entity is required to make a reservation.
The range is open to everyone on the weekend, however.
Dozens of shooters packed a room at the Carson City Community Center to express opposition to the new partial closure.
An enduring Washington truth: When a politician uses multiple clauses in a sentence, the opening words are camouflage soon to be contradicted by what comes later.
Here are a few typical examples of this rhetorical shell game:
When a Democrat begins by saying, “While no one supports the rights of hunters and the Second Amendment more fervently than I do,” you can assume that the rest of the sentence will be an appeal for gun control.
A Florida state commission investigating the February shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school that left 17 people dead recommended on Wednesday that teachers who undergo proper training be allowed to carry firearms at schools.
We all know the script by now: A mass public shooting occurs. Grief and anger ensue. Calls for stricter gun laws soon follow.
Given how incredibly upsetting these crimes are, and how deeply they shake their communities—and the nation itself—such calls are perfectly understandable. If we’re truly serious, however, about reducing gun violence rates and increasing personal safety, we must ensure that policy decisions are made with an eye toward facts and reality, not panic and outrage.
The facts tell us that most commonly proposed gun-control measures are already ineffective at preventing mass public shootings in states where they are currently implemented, and that they will continue to be ineffective at preventing future tragedies.
On December 17th, the Warren County Commission will meet to decide whether to issue a conditional use permit (CUP) to a non-profit organization so that they may continue conducting firearms training on private property for select military personnel as well as for law enforcement from the region.
In the House of Representatives, at least, the midterm election was indeed a blue wave. And when the new Congress is seated in January, that wave might just wash away your gun rights.
Democratic campaigns were dominated by anti-gun rhetoric, and the party won control of Congress in the wake of tragic shootings in Pittsburgh and Thousand Oaks, so gun control is emerging as one of their top legislative priorities. And, the next Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, is leading the charge against the Second Amendment.
Montana Attorney General Tim Fox is taking his challenge of the city of Missoula’s gun regulations to the state Supreme Court.
The Missoulian reports Fox is appealing three rulings by Missoula County District Judge Robert Deschamps, who had overturned Fox’s decision to void a city ordinance.
In Who Do You Think You Are?, Josh Duhamel discovered that his 12x great-grandfather, Thomas Norton, held prominent status in 16thcentury England, and was an influential figure in the war between Protestantism and Catholicism at the time. In this episode, Josh found answers to questions that many Americans ask about their own family tree: do Read More
Remember when Boulder, Colorado banned the ownership of AR-15 rifles? They also banned high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, giving gun owners with such magazines until July 15, 2018 to either sell them or dispose of them—whatever that means. Most likely, you’ll have to turn them over to the authorities. Now, there is a grandfather clause allowing residents who already owned AR-15s to keep them as long as they get a certificate by the local sheriff’s office. Well, that date is rapidly approaching. AR-15 owners have until December 27 to certify their weapons. If owners fail to do this, they won’t be allowed to own their rifles within city limits. So far, only 85 rifles have been certified;
The Air Force failed on several occasions to provide authorities with information that could have prevented ex-airman Devin Kelley from purchasing the firearms he used to gun down more than two dozen people at a rural Texas church, according to a new government report.
In the deathly cold of November 2010, our president was still black, and I’d only been dating Lizzie, who is white, for three months. We took a two-hour drive from the University of Oklahoma, where we were studying, to meet her parents for the first time.
Her dad, Charles, shook my hand and then promptly left the room, returning with the biggest revolver I’d ever seen.
It is an end of an era for the Crossroads of the West Gun Show in the San Diego County city of Del Mar.
After 30 years, Sunday was the last time the show will be held at the Fairgrounds, but gun rights advocates said they won’t be leaving the county without a fight.
On December 5th, the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, a group backed by out-of-state elites, announced it will pursue its most extreme anti-gun legislative agenda to date during the upcoming 2019 Washington Legislative Session.

Today, the Ohio state House of Representatives passed Substitute House Bill 228 by a vote of 59 - 21. It now heads to Governor John Kasich’s desk for his signature. While the legislation was amended, Sub. HB 228 still contains important self-defense protections for the Second Amendment and Ohio’s gun owners.
The U.S.’s republican form of governance is predicated on co-equal branches of government that check and balance each other in order to preserve individual liberty. The system does not work when one branch simply ignores the lawful authority of another branch.
David Hogg wants a federal tax on firearms and ammunition. He has repeatedly broached the idea, including multiple times on Twitter, and only sometimes suggests a use for the tax revenue. Hogg’s tweets on a federal gun tax include references to implementing the same sort of licensing and permitting requirements as the government requires to drive a car or funding “gun violence” research.
As we’ve noted recently, much research purporting to demonstrate connections between access to guns or right-to-carry laws and increases in crime is seriously flawed. Often it's an attempt to curtail or eliminate Americans’ rights under the Second Amendment rather than unbiased scientific research.
Today, the Ohio State Senate passed Substitute House Bill 228 by a vote of 19 - 10. While the legislation was amended, Sub. HB 228 still contains important protections for the Second Amendment and Ohio’s gun owners.
Dick's Sporting Goods told investors during the Goldman Sachs Retailing Conference that its gun-control stance hurt sales of its hunting business, outdoors business, and that it may close its outdoor-focused Field & Stream stores.
House Democrats are looking to roll back a little-known, five-decade-old Capitol Hill regulation that allows members of Congress to keep guns in their offices and carry them around the Capitol grounds.
A federal appeals court Wednesday upheld New Jersey’s law restricting the size of firearm magazines to 10 rounds, saying it doesn’t run afoul of the Second Amendment and will help save lives by giving victims more time to flee while a shooter reloads.
NAACP leaders across the state are rallying against a proposed “Stand Your Ground” gun bill that is being debated in the Ohio Senate.
The bill could receive a vote on the Senate floor this week. Dozens packed into the Ohio Senate Committee hearing Tuesday night to express concerns about HB228. It was the second day of testimony that will continue through Thursday. Several Republican senators were noticeably absent from that hearing.
If the bill is passed it would eliminate a person’s “duty to retreat” if they feel their life is in danger, allowing the individual to protect themselves by using deadly force. The NAACP is calling the legislation a public safety threat.
Prominent Democrats plan on Thursday to begin ramping up calls for stronger gun control at the start of a new push to use their strengthened voice in Washington to make progress on an issue that bitterly divides America.
This week, the California Legislature convened for an organizational session and swearing in ceremonies for legislators. During their short stint in Sacramento several new anti-gun proposals were introduced, including Assembly Bill 18, sponsored by Assembly Member Marc Levine (D-10).
Dick’s expects same-store sales to fall between 3% and 4% this year, in line with the calculations it made in February, Mr. Stack said Tuesday. The vast majority of the sales weakness is due to the company’s decision on guns, he said, as those under 21 aren’t buying guns and some gun enthusiasts have stopped shopping at Dick’s. “It’s as expected.”
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg made his debut Iowa appearance as a possible presidential candidate Tuesday with a message hyper-focused on curbing the effects of climate change and reducing gun violence.

Mandy Moore made the surprising discovery that her 3rd-great-grandmother, Ellen Flynn, boarded the ship Lady Peelin 1849 and traveled from Ireland to Australia. Astonishingly, she thenbraved the seas again to go from Australia to England, traveling over 14,000 miles in her lifetime. In a Read More
If Michael Bloomberg is serious about running for president in 2020, he's going to have to find a better way of answering questions about his support for "stop-and-frisk" policing.
Bloomberg's increasingly serious flirtation with the Democratic presidential race took a new step on Monday with the publication of an op-ed in the Des Moines Register about climate change titled, "Why I'm coming to Iowa."
If the headline weren't a clear enough signal, his piece concludes with, "A recent op-ed in the Des Moines Register called for aspiring presidential candidates to present a bold vision for taking on climate change. I couldn’t agree more: We need stronger leadership in Washington on this issue."
