    Gloucester Township Patch (South Jersey) ^ | 11/15/2015 | Anthony Bellano
    A South Jersey gun range finds itself in the cross hairs of two groups who believe two signs they have posted in South Jersey are racist and should be taken down. "The Only Time We Take A Knee …" the billboard posted by the South Jersey Shooting Club on Route 73 in Voorhees reads. Next to the words, it has a silhouette of a person on one knee pointing a rifle. ---snip-- The club, which is an NRA Gold Club Affiliate according to its website, has received both criticism and praise on its Facebook page.

    If you're not familiar with who these "Try Guys" are, they are four hilarious men who will throw themselves into any scenario, just to try it out. You can’t say they’re not open minded, however, when it came to the topic of guns. Well this is what their opinions on guns were before getting a taste of blasting some hot lead downrange, by the way they are our "millennial generation". Guy 1: I don't like guns. at all.Guy 2: I don't have a negative opinion about guns, I do have negative opinions about people.Guy 3: I've been invited to a...

    A 24-year-old woman is fighting for her life after she was shot in the head Monday afternoon at a shooting range in South Carolina. It happened around 2 p.m. at the Skip J Range in Anderson. WYFF is reporting the Georgia woman was at the range with her family when she was accidentally shot. When emergency responders arrived at the scene, she was unresponsive. Anderson County Coroner Greg Shore told WSPA the bullet entered her skull through her eye and is lodged in her brain. Shore said the woman had been to the shooting range with her family in...

    The Hibbing Minnesota School District has become a battleground in the culture wars around the Second Amendment.  When the Lincoln Elementary School was being built in 1956, it was seen as reasonable and proper to include a gun range in the basement.  The range has been in continuous use for almost 60 years.  The range has a spotless safety record.  There have not been any injuries in the entire 60 year history of its operation. From Director Jeff Polcher noted that there have been zero incidents at the gun range in its nearly 60-year existence. He said requiring...
  • NY Times in Denial: "Unclear What Role, If Any, Religion Played" in Fort Dix Six Terror Plot"

    New York Times reporter Alan Feuer, seen last May giving respectable coverage to a convention of "Bush-caused-9-11" conspiracy nuts, went to enormous (and erroneous) pains Monday to soft-pedal the Muslim beliefs of the Fort Dix terrorist plotters in "Two Mosques Are Shaken by Ties to a Terror Plot." "It is unclear what role, if any, religion played in the attack Mr. Shnewer and the five other men are charged with planning. (The sixth suspect, Agron Abdullahu, had no apparent connection with Al-Aqsa or the South Jersey Islamic Center.) The authorities have described the suspects as Islamic extremists, but the lengthy...

    One suspect is in custody and two others are still on the loose after a burglary at an Oklahoma City gun range. Early Wednesday morning, police say three juveniles burglarized the H&H Gun Range near I-40 and Meridian. Oklahoma City police were called to the scene after the alarm at H&H Gun Range started going off. When officers arrived, they say they saw the suspects get into a car and drive away. Officers then started chasing the vehicle. A short time later, police say the suspects’ vehicle crashed near I-40 and MacArthur and two of the suspects got away. One...

    CHICO, Calif. - Down Range in Chico has now attracted attention not once, not twice, but three times for its large billboards that sit along Highway 99. "It's pretty smart, to be honest with you," said Andrea Schauer. Schauer is a Redding resident who makes the Redding to Chico drive once a week for business or to shoot at the north Chico gun range. She is amused by the shops ads. "I'm always looking at their banners to see if they have a new one up," Schaeur said. In December, the gun range began an advertising campaign, using the symbol...

    In the five months since Jan Morgan banned Muslims from her gun range in Hot Springs, Ark., business has boomed and predictions of a lawsuit brought by federal civil rights enforcers have so far proved inaccurate. Morgan, who claims keeping Muslims out of her Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range is a matter of public safety and not a constitutional issue, says she made the decision in September after two customers she deemed suspicious visited. She said their furtive behavior and cellphone ringtones of “Allahu Akhbar” prompted her to revise her range’s policies. “We are dealing in lethal firearms,” Morgan told...

    Pennsylvania gun range manager Ken LeVan said that he’s learned to read people's body movements and attitudes during his 20 years on the job, a skill that he claims has allowed him to spot potentially suicidal customers. He has refused to serve customers from time to time at the Firing Line because sometimes "it didn't feel right." He once turned away a man because of his nervous pacing. "He was soaking wet from perspiration," LeVan said. The man also wasn’t very talkative, which LeVan said was a "dead giveaway that he was going to do something silly." At nearby shooting...

    Dallas Morning News ^ | 3/25/13 | SCOTT K. PARKS
    Now, the case promises to be the first test of a state law designed to prevent nuisance suits against outdoor gun ranges — which often draw complaints from neighbors concerned about noise and safety. With strong backing from the National Rifle Association, the measure, which began as Senate Bill 766, was overwhelmingly approved by the 2011 Texas Legislature. The law does not limit lawsuits against a gun range for personal injury or death, property damage or breach of contract. Morgan insists that he and his associates operated the range safely, saying no one has ever been harmed there. “Unnecessary fears...

    KATY, TX – The gun control debate may be a bit out of control in Katy. CNN’s Piers Morgan chose Tactical Firearms, a Katy gun shop and shooting range as the backdrop for Monday’s episode of “Piers Morgan Tonight”. Included in the Monday’s debate were Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, State Senator Dan Patrick and Ted Nugent. Tactical Firearms owner, Jeremy Alcede claims Morgan told him he wanted to use the time at the gun shop as a learning exercise. Alcede said, “He said, well, I’d like to learn more about guns. People criticize me, saying, how can I be...

    WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. - For Michael McInerney, home is on the range, shooting a gun, a way of life. “I've been a target shooter since I was able to pick up a rifle,” he says, squeezing off a few rounds at a fresh target. Outside city limits in Island County you can shoot just about anywhere, anytime. The same goes for hunting. It’s a way of life not everyone in this increasingly populated county is comfortable with. “You do think about once in a while,” said Ken Webb, a relative newcomer to Whidbey Island after five years. Like many here,...

    SHARONVILLE, Ohio — Police say a woman rented a handgun at an Ohio indoor shooting range, got some instructions on how to use it and then fatally shot herself. Police in the Cincinnati suburb of Sharonville say they believe Ann Fukuyama committed suicide Sunday at Target World, a public range that sells and rents guns and has a dozen 25-yard target shooting lanes. They say the 46-year-old Cincinnati resident died at a local hospital.

    The largest shooting range in the country is set to open this week in Northern Virginia with a focus on helping residents, members of the military and police officers protect themselves in schools, homes and other real-life situations. "It is unrealistic for anyone to think you will always be engaging or defending from a fixed position, where someone is just directly in front of you," said Scott Marquez, president of the Silver Eagle Group Training Facility and Private Club, in Ashburn. "A lot of people in this area and around the country carry a firearm for self-defense, yet have very...

    A group of homeowners who live near a gun club have standing to sue the club for dumping lead and other ammunition-related pollutants into the surrounding area, a Connecticut federal court has ruled . The court dismissed one of the homeowners' claims under the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, concluding that lead shot is not "hazardous waste" at the time it is discharged from a firearm because it is being used for its intended purpose.The court's ruling permits the homeowners to press their remaining claims under the RCRA and the Clean Water Act.The Metacon Gun Club Inc. has operated...
