    Many close observers of the Supreme Court expect a ruling in the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA – better known as McCain-Feingold) case McConnell v. FEC before the High Court goes home for Christmas break on December 15. The National Rifle Association (NRA), one of the plaintiffs in McConnell, is already planning its next move. Even if only a threat, it’s a strategy you could easily imagine John Cleese of Monty Python fame coming up with – acting absurd to illustrate the absurdity of the law. It’s a beautiful idea. Under present law institutional media organizations like ABC or CNN,...

    When Jimmie Rosenbruch went north last month, bound for the high country of southeast Alaska to stalk mountain goats, the Utah sportsman and master hunting guide toted more than a rifle into the wilderness. Mr. Rosenbruch, a burly lifelong Republican and acquaintance of former President George H.W. Bush, also carried personal displeasure over the natural- resource agenda of Mr. Bush's son. In particular, Rosenbruch and a groundswell of other gun owners from the lower 48 are challenging the Bush administration's plan to undo protection of Alaska's Tongass and Chugach national forests by opening both to increased logging and road construction....

    MADISON — If you own a gun and think hiding it away will keep the hands of a child off its trigger, think again. “Don’t sell your kid short. They can find out where the gun is,” said Appleton Police Department spokesman John DeLong. “As a consequence, when they find a gun, you need to make it inoperable.” Firearms safety proponents Monday launched a statewide effort to make it easier for gun owners to make their guns safer. Statewide, 465,000 free trigger locks will be distributed this year, including thousands of locks in the Fox Valley. The locks are designed...

    Anti-Gunner Jumps to Narrow Lead in Republican Governor's Race Atlanta, August 13 -- With a week to go before election day, new polls show anti-gun State Superintendent of Schools Linda Shrenko of Grovetown has surprisingly jumped to a narrow lead in the tight race for the Republican nomination for Governor. Pro-gun groups hadn't focused on Ms. Shrenko previously because they believed she had little chance to win. But persistent coverage of her by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution appears to have helped her campaign. "We feel obligated to get the word out," said CSG President Marston Tuck, because "it would be a...
