    The 1,800 or so criminals who have killed, robbed or assaulted innocent people with guns in the District of Columbia so far this year were hauled into the police station to be fingerprinted, photographed and to undergo a criminal-background check. Now, legal gun owners who have committed no crime are getting the exact same treatment. That is neither constitutional, nor fair. The latest gun-control scheme that starts on Jan. 1 will force every legal firearm owner in the nation’s capital to go in person to police headquarters to renew their registration certificates. The Metropolitan Police Department filed proposed rules last...

    Today, the Michigan House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to repeal the state handgun “permit-to-purchase” and registration requirements. House Bill 5225 passed in the state House by a 74 to 36 vote. HB 5225 would repeal the bureaucratic state “permit-to-purchase” handguns and instead utilize the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System. House Bill 5498 and House Bill 5499 also passed in the state House along with HB 5225. These three bills now go to the state Senate where they will be assigned to the appropriate committees. HB 5225, sponsored by state Representative Paul Opsommer (R-93), which became obsolete when the...

For most of his life, Daniel Strelec enjoyed the home his father built. But these days it's more like a prison for the 79-year-old man. He hopes boarding up windows and doors will keep the...

    The question was, would I ever shoot a man? It's the kind of thing my buddies and I talk about on occasion. It pretty much tells you all you need to know of my friends. Anyway, I answered yes. And it surprised me. Richie, my good pal, had reminded me of why. You know, of the time we both got held up. Actually, we didn't get held up. The store we were in did. It was a little after 3 on a recent Saturday morning. We were on our way to a morning's goose hunting. We stopped in to grab...
