    Police have released audio from a 911 call made during a home invasion in Georgia, in which a concerned husband tells his wife to shoot a lawless intruder. The mom was home alone with her twin 9-year-old children when the man broke into their home with a crowbar. The mother, later identified as Melinda Herman, shot the man five times with a .38 caliber revolver after he cornered them in an attic crawlspace,
  • Ammo Ban And Registration Proposal Getting Fresh Look

    Happy Holidays: Now dispose of all of your ammunition! Every last round! From now on, you will be able to buy only overpriced ammunition that will be registered to you in a government database. Not yet--at least for now. A small company, Ammunition Accountability--which wants to help anti-gunners price and regulate the Second Amendment out of existence, profit at the expense of our rights, or both--has found radical anti-gun legislators in 18 states willing to introduce bills pushing such nonsense. But few anti-gun proposals are so overtly aimed at destroying the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. As we began...

    ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis city leader frustrated with the police response to rising crime called Tuesday on residents to arm themselves to protect their lives and property. Alderman Charles Quincy Troupe said police are ineffective, outnumbered or don't care about the increase in crime in his north St. Louis ward. St. Louis has had 157 homicides in 2008, 33 more than last year at this time.

    I'm 90 miles from Cuba and I'm going to purchase a new handgun for a new house. I'm thinking .45 ... Kimber I'm open to all opinion and option.

    It was 28 seconds past 7:45 p.m. on Aug.18 when the 911 dispatcher took the call from Sascha Wagner. “There’s someone breaking into the house,” she yelled at the 911 operator, giving the address of the home she shares with David Scheper on the 800 block of West Lombard Street. “Send police now!” The intruders? They got in. They took $1,440 in cash Scheper says he withdrew from his bank account in order to buy a used pickup truck. They hit a 70-year-old art-deco-style metal desk with an ax. They took 18 of Scheper’s guns—mostly inoperable antiques, he says—and some...

    Support the Citizens' Self-Defense Act THIS IS A CONSERVATIVE ALERT: ISSUE: Recently, we alerted you to yet another instance of an over-zealous prosecutor pressing charges against a homeowner that used a gun to protect his family against a home invader. Unfortunately, this happens more than anyone cares to admit. Now, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) has introduced HR 648, "The Citizens' Self-Defense Act of 2003", to counter these mis-directed prosecutions and blatant violations of American citizens' Second Amendment rights. HR 648 was introduced to "protect the right to obtain firearms for security, and to use firearms in defense of self, family,...
