    This isn’t the sort of breaking news, horror show healine which generally makes the rounds when talking about kids and guns, but it’s a nice story which deserves a little more visibility. An “iReport” feature on CNN describes the education and competitive record of ten year old target shooter Shyanne Roberts of New Jersey. Meet Shyanne Roberts, a 10-year-old competitive shooter who is out to prove something: Children with guns don’t always mean disaster.“I want to be an inspiration to other kids and be a leader,” said the girl. “Kids and guns don’t always mean bad things happen.”The Franklinville, New...

    Video cameras? Yes please! Give me one. Maybe two or three. I am absolutely a HUGE proponent of law enforcement using in-car and body mounted cameras. Some ask why I feel so strongly about the subject, and to them I offer the following personal anecdote. I have personally benefited greatly from the video obtained by a digital video camera, the in-car camera system in my patrol car. A number of years ago, I was involved in an incident where, as I arrived at the scene of a call, I came under fire by a suspect armed with a rifle. I...

    I know this won’t be shocking, but we have some additional proof that the gaggle of anti-gun groups spread throughout the nation don’t generally have a firm grip on the civilian nature of our democratic republic. The pro-gun sheriff of Wicomico County in Maryland (yeah… there’s a pro-gun sheriff in Maryland) is under fire from anti-gunners after a comment he made about protecting the Second Amendment rights of Wicomico citizens. According to Delmarvanow.com, Sheriff Mike Lewis is on record explaining that Federal curbs to the Second Amendment will not be tolerated in his county:"As long as I'm the sheriff in this county,...

    Gun ranges are frequently targeted by left-wing activists in the government, and sadly, one is finally about to be wrongly shut down. This is alarming, because it marks the beginning of a slippery slope leading to forcing other gun ranges out of business. This will ultimately lead to a lack of reputable places for people to learn how to defend themselves with firearms, and a major step backwards for the Second Amendment after years of withstanding progressive attacks.The Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club in Washington state has been targeted for nearly 20 years now by left-wing activists in government.

What they really meant to say: Venezuelan President Nicols Maduro is launching a nationwide initiative to encourage civilians to surrender their weapons because his communist policies have failed and the people are starting to notice. He must double-down with the tyranny and, to do so, must first disarm his victims. History is full of examples:...

    Washington DC has been ordered to allow concealed handguns… But, c’mon, let’s not get carried away. I mean, why on Earth would we rush to allow such American freedoms in America’s capitol, right? Following in the footsteps of liberal enclaves like Boston, New York, and the People’s Republic of California, Washington DC is paying lip service to the Second Amendment by crafting a “May Issue” concealed carry rule.Essentially, the rule amounts to an arbitrary case-by-case determination of concealed carry applications, where applicants will be asked to provide a “legitimate” reason for carrying a gun. According to WJLA:The District is seeking to...

A Federal Judge demanded earlier this year that the city develop an actionable plan to allow gun sales within city limits. Of course, not all (or any) of the city council members seem on board. Ald. Water Burnett Jr said of the gun stores, I dont think we want these kinds of things in our communities...

With fully armed security, the East Coast Nannycrat is retreating to his private business at Bloomberg LP. Most gun rights activists are lifting a glass in celebration.

    More Guns, Less Crime: Since Illinois began issuing concealed-carry permits this year, robberies, burglaries, car thefts and, yes, even murder, are down significantly. Last month, when an 86-year-old Crestwood, Ill., man decided to visit his local phone store, he arrived to find a robbery underway. After staying outside to keep others from entering the store, he saw the suspect fleeing through a back door. He pursued the suspect, legal firearm in hand, stopped him, then held him until police arrived to make the arrest. The actions of the unidentified law-abiding citizen were made possible by Illinois becoming the 50th and...

After hearing Quanell X's statements, Open Carry Texas member David Amad defended the group's decision to hold the event in the Fifth Ward and said the organization's motivations are being prematurely misjudged.

The jury, which consists of seven men and five women, began its deliberations on Wednesday after nine days of testimony. Wafer, 55, is charged with second degree murder and manslaughter for shooting and killing McBride, 19, last November when the teenager showed up inebriated on his porch at 4:40 a.m. Wafer said he could only make out a figure around his house, said the person pounded on his door and made him fear for his life.

    Guns: The Santa Barbara shooter had legally purchased and registered firearms, and passed prior questioning by the police who saw no danger to himself or others. More gun laws won't stop the next such shooter, either. It is eerie how the mental health of the shooter consistently seems to emerge as a key factor in mass shootings such as the rampage by Elliot Rodger, who killed six and wounded 13 on Friday. The shooter had been in therapy since age 8 and police had been warned by his parents to check him out. Yet few liberals cry for tougher mental...

    The grieving father of one of the six students shot dead by the 'virgin killer' in California on Friday, led a rousing call for a change in gun laws at a memorial today. As Richard Martinez addressed a crowd of about 20,000 who gathered for the University of California Santa Barbara memorial, the crowd got to their feet and joined his chant of 'Not One More'.

    On May 7th, an apoplectic CNN attempted to provide cover for Hillary Clinton after her unprovoked assault on 100 million American gun owners. Speaking before the National Council for Behavioral Health, Hillary stated that the nations gun culture had gotten way out of balance. Weve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime added Clinton. I dont believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people. Shes talking in the context of mental health, claimed CNN talking head John King in the hope of...

    Jack in the Box, a popular fast-food restaurant chain, has followed Starbucks' unfortunate lead in limiting its customers' Second Amendment rights. Friday, the company announced it would start enforcing its no-firearms-in-stores policy. Jack in the Boxs Vice President of Corporate Communications Brian Luscomb released this statement: The presence of guns inside a restaurant could create an uncomfortable situation for our guests and employees and lead to unintended consequences. The company's decision comes a day after gun control group Moms Demand Action launched a petition to pressure the restaurant to enforce the policy. They started the campaign in response to...

    At first, it looked like an epic-fail (and I really hate that phrase) for Michael Bloombergs new gun control group, Everytown For Gun Safety. Deciding that they should organize a protest outside of the NRA annual meeting in Indianapolis, gun control advocates flocked to show their disdain for American gun-owners But, there was only one problem: With a mere 25 people deciding to show up for the rally, the protest looked more like an OFA global warming meeting. Apparently, two dozen people was the absolute most the anti-gun group, Hoosiers Concerned About Gun Violence, was able to gather for the...

    One story reported on CBSDFW.COM has a lot of people talking. It started with Tuesday nights vote on an ordinance by the Arlington City Council to ban guns and concealed weapons at public meetings. Members of the gun rights group Open Carry Tarrant County believe they are the ones being targeted, but they may not be the only ones affected by ordinance changes. A second Arlington ban could put heavy restrictions on handing out pamphlets. Weve all seen them from time-to-time groups trying to push their cause, including gun rights advocates. Now some leaders in Arlington say the approach...

    Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed into law Wednesday a pro-gun package that groups on both sides of the gun control debate describe as exceptional. The National Rifle Association calls it the most comprehensive pro-gun bill in state history. Americans for Responsible Solutions, the gun control group founded by shooting victim and former congresswoman Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), calls it the most extreme gun bill in America.

    Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is expected to sign legislation Wednesday expanding gun rights in the state. The bill, described by the National Rifle Associations lobbying arm as "the most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history," expands the scope of public places where licensed owners are allowed to carry firearms. The bill makes several changes to state law. It allows those with a license to carry to bring a gun into a bar without restriction and into some government buildings that don't have certain security measures. It also allows religious leaders to decide whether it's OK for a...

    In case you havent heard, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is going to spend $50 million in 2014 to build a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate anti-gun voters. Thats right, hes trying to create an organization to oppose the NRA. You can read more about Bloombergs efforts in the NY Times. While I think Bloombergs Everytown for Gun Safety campaign is ridiculous and a waste of money, right now I just want to focus on this image that was posted on what appears to be the Facebook page of the movement. Notice anything wrong with the photo? Thats right,...
