    The mother of a 13-year-old boy fatally shot when police say he tried to rob a couple said she is in shock that her son is dead -- and even more so at the circumstances surrounding his death. "I don't want it put out like he was a bad person or a mean person, because he wasn't," Latonya Walker, 38, said Tuesday. "This is not him, not who he was. Anybody that knew Ja'Quares knows that." Birmingham police said Ja'Quares Cortez Walker was in a car that pulled into the parking lot of the gated Skyview Condominiums at 407 Skyview...

    Tallahassee, Florida (Reuters) - Florida Governor Rick Scott has shot down a request by Tampa's mayor to allow local authorities to ban guns from the city's downtown during the Republican National Convention in August. Citing Second Amendment protections in the U.S. Constitution, Scott told Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn that conventions and guns have co-existed since the nation's birth and would continue to do so during the four-day event beginning August 27. "It is unclear how disarming law abiding citizens would better protect them from the dangers and threats posed by those who would flout the law," the Republican governor said...

    CONWAY – A teenager is being called a hero by the family he protected from armed intruders early Monday morning.Brady, 14, is a trained trap shooter who used his own shotgun to intimidate two black males who he says broke into his family's house just after midnight Monday morning."They both had silver revolvers pointed at me, and we just kind of pointed at each other for like three seconds and then I yelled, ‘Hey!'" said Brady, "And they and they took off running."Nothing has been reported stolen from their house.The full names of Brady's family are being concealed for safety...
  • Water Guns Banned, Handguns Allowed at GOP Convention

    In the politically-charged and likely protest-filled streets of Tampa, Fla., during the Republican National Convention in August, water guns will be strictly prohibited. Concealed handguns, on the other hand, will be perfectly legal. Florida Gov. Rick Scott said this week that banning handguns from downtown Tampa during the convention, as the city's Mayor Bob Buckhorn requested, "would surely violate the Second Amendment." ... Buckhorn said last month that the state law, which prohibits the city from temporarily banning handguns, makes the city "look silly" because officials can prohibit water guns but not real ones, The Associated Press reported. "There is...
  • New Hampshire: Permitless Carry Scheduled for Senate Consideration Today

    House Bill 536, important permitless carry legislation, is scheduled for consideration by the state Senate today. Introduced by state Representative J.R. Hoell (R-13), this Right-to-Carry legislation would repeal the existing law that requires a person to have a concealed firearm license in order to carry concealed. However, HB 536 would not eliminate the current carry permitting system, which will still be required for those who wish to 1) participate in reciprocal concealed carry permit agreements when traveling to other states, 2) be protected in "gun-free school zones" and 3) be exempt from NICS when purchasing a firearm. In New Hampshire,...

    This is it! The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on Constitutional Carry on Thursday, April 26th! Unfortunately the lying politicians in Concord are ready to follow through with their threats to kill Constitutional Carry. Inside sources are now saying that the next scheduled vote on HB-536 is only a part of a scheme to kill it. Yep, that’s right. Despite SIGNED pledges to support and pass Constitutional Carry from a majority of the Senate — Republican Senator Peter Bragdon is still leading the anti-gun crusade at the capitol. He’s even ready to take a page out of former...

    My rifle is a round receiver Tula, 91/30. I was lucky enough to get one with an excellent bore, bolt, and all the accessories (oiler, tools in cloth wrap, sling, bayonet and two ammo pouches), while paying only $90 in-person. $80 online is still a perfectly fair price, even after transfer and shipping -- though I would advise anyone purchasing multiple specimens, or other qualifying weapons, to consider a Curio and Relic license, if that is in your interest. The rifle's main detriment that I've determined thus far? The sights. They're not bad -- though I'm biased, and apparently an...

    HOUSTON - A robbery suspect with a gun chose the wrong place at the wrong time to threaten three men who were meeting behind a restaurant. He learned the hard way that they guns of their own. Three undercover narcotics officers, who were dressed in shorts and baseball-style caps with no badges visible, were meeting around 11 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot behind the Luby's Cafeteria on the Gulf Freeway frontage road near Telephone Road when a man wearing a ski mask jumped out from behind a bush, approached the group of undercover officers, pointed a gun at them...

    The terrified homeowner was on the ground with a gun pressed to her head. She managed to shoot the burglar. Now Jackson County prosecutors have charged his alleged accomplice with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and two counts of first-degree burglary. Dominique D. Richardson, 20, faces the murder charge because Missouri law allows accused accomplices to be charged with murder when a death occurs during the commission of a felony. The homeowner acted in self-defense and did not face any charges, authorities say. According to court documents, Richardson and Trevor Garms, 17, broke into a home in the 5800 block of...

    It was only for 14 seconds, and one might question the appropriateness of joking about a government plot that has resulted in hundreds of deaths in Mexico, and two dead federal agents, but comedian Jimmy Kimmel is now one of the few people to have publicly referenced the "Project Gunwalker" scandal in President Obama's presence. This was Saturday night, at the White House Correspondents' Dinner (see sidebar video): Even some of your fellow Democrats think you’re a pushover, Mr. President. They would like to see you stick to your guns, and if you don’t have any guns, they would like...

    BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham police say a 13-year-old robbery suspect was shot and killed by the person he tried to rob in Birmingham Friday night. The Jefferson County Coroner's Office confirms the teen's identity as Jaqures Cortez Walker of Birmingham. He was a 7th grade student at Martha Gaskin Middle School and the quarterback for the football team, according to a family member. BPD Sgt. Johnny Williams said the teen suspect approached a couple as they pulled into their home at the gated Skyview Condominiums in the 400 block of Skyview Drive around 11:10pm. Friday, April 27.

    For some time now, particularly after changing their name from Handgun Control, Inc., the Brady Campaign has been assuring Americans they don’t want to ban guns. The idea of a “slippery slope” is something they ridicule as “gun lobby” paranoia. They acknowledge since the Heller decision this will be an unlikely goal (for now), claiming, “Now that the Court has struck down the District’s ban on handguns, while making it clear that the Constitution allows for reasonable restrictions on access to dangerous weapons, this ‘slippery slope’ argument is gone.” It’s true that a narrow 5-4 decision by the high court...

    Mayor Bill VanSuch has asked the Campbell Police Department to investigate how a handgun discharged in the police chief’s office. The incident happened April 17 as Chief Gus Sarigianopoulos was checking the gun to see if it was loaded. Van Such said he intended to ask a detective-sergeant to investigate, and he is asking the chief to cooperate. In a letter to VanSuch dated Thursday, Sarigianopoulos said he was attempting to clear the gun, which was pointed down toward the floor, when it discharged. The police department had recently acquired the Vietnam-era handgun from state-government surplus. The gun, one of...

    The cry for justice for Trayvon Martin reached Winston-Salem State March 28 as students and others from the Winston-Salem community participated in a march to bring Martin’s killer to justice. A protest march started at the Clock Tower and ended at the intersection of Martin Luther King Drive and Cromartie Street. Participants were lined along the street waving Skittles’ bags. “Trayvon Martin is the inspiration for it [the march],” said Larry Little, associate professor in the Department of Social Sciences. Martin was the unarmed 17-year-old boy who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old community watch coordinator of...

    I was invited via an email from Cabela’s to trick out my AR. It took a minute to figure that they were talking about an automatic rifle. The picture looked like the M-16 I carried 40 years ago in military service, but more upscale. I don't own an AR. I don't even have a gun. It is usually nice shirts and camping equipment I get from them. So it was a little surprising. I like Cabela’s. When we lived in Michigan I'd take my kids to see their beautiful four-story displays of bears, coyotes, foxes in hinterland settings. It seemed...
