    Guns Turned In at Phoenix Event Winston-Salem, North Carolina, will be having two gun turn in events in the next two months.   One on Saturday, March 15th,  and another at a second location on Saturday, April  12th.  While these events are commonly labeled with the propaganda term "buyback" the guns were never owned by the people attempting to buy them.  The rewards at this event: $100 for handguns, $75 for shotguns and rifles and $150 for "automatic weapons".  There is no limit to how many guns an individual may turn in.  The organizers want the guns to be...

    We all must thank the nation's media outlets that honored the wishes of the community of Newtown, Conn., and stayed away on the one-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in December. The compassion and restraint during the town's time of remembrance was commendable. I hope this can be a starting point for addressing the overwhelming issue of school shootings, which have persisted in this country for far too long. As a school superintendent, there is nothing more frightening to me than the thought of another senseless school shooting. Yet, within the current psychology of our nation, it...

    A prosecutor has dropped criminal cases against three more defendants charged in an undercover ATF sting in Milwaukee last year — the latest setback for the beleaguered operation. Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Karen Loebel said in court she was dismissing the cases to protect informants who arranged gun and drug deals for federal agents. She blamed the publicity surrounding the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sting, saying it made it too dangerous to proceed with the cases. The ATF is usually keen on getting publicity for its operations, but not the kind the Milwaukee sting has...

    While watching George Zimmerman's immunity hearing online in late April 2013, Chip Bennett took satisfaction seeing Florida prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda flail away at the one blog that has given him fits from the beginning. "BDLR alleges that The Conservative Treehouse doxed Witness 8," Bennett commented. "Double shot!" By "Double shot," Bennett meant "doubly cool." This was the second of three occasions on which de la Rionda would refer to the Treehouse. By "doxed" he meant, in a word, "outed." More comprehensively, the Urban Dictionary defines "doxing" as "a technique of tracing someone or gathering information about an individual...

    Diamondback Police Supply, the gun dealership that was to sell the AR-15 type rifle to Mark Kelly, Gabby Gifford's Husband, has returned his money now that it has learned that he did not intend the rifle for personal use. Here is the statement: Statement of Douglas MacKinlay, Owner/President, Diamondback Police Supply Co., Inc. “While I support and respect Mark Kelly’s 2nd Amendment rights to purchase, possess, and use firearms in a safe and responsible manner, his recent statements to the media made it clear that his intent in purchasing the Sig Sauer M400 5.56mm rifle from us was for reasons...

    West Bend - Bob Pucci wheels his motorized scooter through the Washington County Fair Park Pavilion, passing rows of tables filled with handguns, shotguns, semiautomatic rifles and pistols, knives, antique firearms, ammo, scopes, exploding targets and emergency food. The dealers know him well. So do a lot of the customers. And sheepish kids come up and ask Pucci if they can play with his 3½-year-old black Labrador, Rocco 2, who has the run of the place. For more than 20 years, through good economic times and bad, Pucci's Bob and Rocco Gun Shows have been staged across Wisconsin. And business...

    The state forest ranger who shot himself in the leg during training at a firing range in Lake George last week is out of the hospital, officials said. Ranger Jim Giglinto was at the state Department of Environmental Conservation's regional headquarters in Ray Brook earlier this week, officials said. DEC spokesman Michael Bopp said it was unclear when Giglinto would return to work, and a DEC investigation into the incident was ongoing. Giglinto suffered a wound to a leg when a bullet grazed him late Friday afternoon. The gun was triggered by a cord that was on a windbreaker jacket...

    For the Madison Children's Museum, the decision was a no-brainer. But for other businesses, the debate over whether to allow concealed weapons on their properties is taking a little more thought. For others, there will be no change at all. The law, signed by Gov. Scott Walker on July 8, goes into effect Nov. 1. Under the bill, people who obtain a permit and go through training can carry concealed weapons in the state Capitol and other public buildings but not places such as police stations, schools and courthouses. Weapons will be prohibited in buildings where posted notices bar them....

    When it comes to the concealed-carry bill expected to be signed soon by Gov. Scott Walker, I guess it's time for opponents like me to surrender. After the bill was approved by most Republicans and some Democrats, the Assembly will send the bill to Walker to become the law of the land. The move is being hailed as a major victory by those who believe concealed carry provides a much-needed safety net for law-abiding citizens who can now feel free to summon up their inner Clint Eastwood on demand to defend their loved ones. Of course, that's a crock. Many...

    INDIANAPOLIS -- A postal worker who was shot in the face after encountering a bank robber Thursday spoke Saturday about the harrowing ordeal. Robert Norman, 54, has worked for the U.S. Postal Service for 30 years, but he will spend the next six to eight weeks recovering from the wound, 6News' Sarah Cornell reported. Norman and his doctors said he is very fortunate that the bullet struck right below his right eye. "God protected me. I could have died," Norman said. Norman was inside a Wanamaker Chase Bank, in the 8800 block of Southeastern Avenue, to get some spending money...

    Quote: First hand account from Knick of Evol Intent... Last night, I was booked to play an event about an hour outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. The hype behind this show was huge, they presold 700 tickets and they expected up to 3,000 people total. The promoters did an amazing job with the show.. they even made slipmats with the flyers on them to promote in local shops. So, we got to the show around 11:15 or so and it was really cool. It was all outdoors, in a valley surrounded by huge mountains. They had an amazing light...
