    The lawyer for Ahmaud Arbery's family says the federal authorities met with them last week and said they have launched a criminal investigation into the conduct of 2 district attorneys and members of the police department that allegedly covered up Ahmaud's killing. Lee Merritt appeared Monday on "TMZ Live" and said the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia informed the family they were looking at both civil and criminal action against the officials. Merritt also talked about the text message the police sent to a homeowner, telling him if there was "action" on his doorbell he should call...

    SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Police have identified an 18-year-old man who was shot and killed Wednesday night by a homeowner in Scottsdale after he was found naked inside the victim's residence. Scottsdale police say the incident happened around 10:45 p.m. near Pima and Happy Valley roads. The homeowner was reportedly doing work on the property when the family dog alerted him to some type of disturbance. When the father of the family entered a room to investigate, he found that one of his children had been confronted by a naked man, identified Friday as Cameron Yoe. Police say Yoe was holding...

    Two men escaped injury after a homeowner shot at them during a break-in. On April 24, Cherokee County Sheriff's Deputy James Carver and Sheriff Jason Chennault were dispatched to the Pumpkin Hollow area for a burglary in progress. The caller said two men tried entering his home by breaking a window. The man said the intruders broke into the back door of the residence. The homeowner was armed with a shotgun and confronted the suspects. The homeowner fired the gun at the men and they fled. "Upon arrival at the scene, Deputy Carver and Sheriff Chennault located the suspects' vehicle...

    The shotgun is an iconic weapon most often associated with the pump-action badassery of action films and video games. While awesome in fiction, its use in the real world is limited to close combat and breaching doors, not to mention bird and deer hunting. Despite its drawbacks, a mystique surrounds the weapon, and soldiers as well as law enforcement officers still use them. The draw of the gun is so powerful that the Pentagon has spent several decades and millions of dollars to improve on the basic design. In the late 1960s, the military and private companies started tinkering with...

    This retro military model is made by the Upper Sandusky-based Ithaca Gun Company for their Dayton neighbor, Inland Manufacturing. The latter is best known for their excellent reproductions of World War II M1 carbines. The American martial tradition is no stranger to shotguns. Militiamen employed fowling pieces in battle during the Revolutionary War, and the Confederate Cavalry wielded sawed-off shotguns in the Civil War. It was during World War I that you might say the Army got serious about shotguns. It was, after all, the biggest war they had fought to date. Close combat in the trenches, and especially night...

    Heinrich Krieghoff was in Sewanee, Germany, where he demonstrated a gas-operated rifle to Adolph Hitler, Hermann Göring, Rudolf Hess and Paul von Hindenberg, possibly to gain favor for a military contract, which he received the following year to produce 10,000 Luger pistols. It is believed that Krieghoff offered Neptune Drillings to Göring and Hitler at this time. We do know that Göring, a German politician, military leader and leading member of the Nazi Party, owned a Kreighoff Drilling, which has been documented in books and period photos, and has his initials, H.G., engraved in the same location – bottom of...

    It's dangerous to be conservative in modern America. From raging leftists intent on causing physical harm to cowards who prefer to dox and harass online, there's no shortage of liberals acting out against the political right. Now, they're even turning to shamelessly menacing the families of conservatives. The family of conservative journalist Andy Ngo discovered this firsthand after a creepy encounter on Halloween night. According to Ngo, the group of six approached his family's house wearing makeshift masks of his face. "These 6 individuals wearing print-out masks of my face approached my family's home last night, repeatedly rang doorbell, pounded...

    A baseball bat-wielding man tried to break into the home of Philadelphia Eagles’ Fletcher Cox’s last week — but the hulking defensive tackle scared him off with a shotgun, according to a new report. Corbyn Nyemah was allegedly looking for his his ex-girlfriend at Cox’s Mullica Hill mansion, which Nyemah tried to enter by throwing rocks through the front door after midnight on Oct. 15, according to court papers obtained by 6ABC Action News. The home’s surveillance cameras showed Nyemah stalking the property with a baseball bat in hand and trying to enter the garage multiple times, the network reported.

    A carjacker died after he accidentally blasted himself in the chest while trying to smash a window with the butt of his shotgun, an inquest has heard. Officers investigating the death of Reece Ramsey-Johnson said they were satisfied there was ‘no third party involvement’ as they closed the probe into his killing. Witnesses who saw the 22-year-old dying from gunshot wounds in the street outside a Lloyds bank in Sydenham on Sunday, September 8, said his own gun may have gone off when he used to to hit a car window. Opening the inquest at Southwark Coroner’s Court on Thursday...

    A woman was charged after allegedly telling coworkers she would shoot up a high school and deputies later seized an AK-47 with six magazines and a 12-gauge shotgun. Alexis Wilson, 18, was charged Monday with felony terrorist hoax for allegedly threatening to “shoot up” McAlester High School, according to court records. Pittsburg County Special Judge Mindy Beare set bond at $250,000 and a hearing date for Sept. 27 at Monday’s initial appearance arraignment. Wilson’s mother said during the arraignment that her daughter is innocent. Pittsburg County Sheriff Morris said an anonymous tip led to the investigation that found Wilson posted...

    An SAS officer armed with a shotgun has killed five jihadis during a dawn raid, it has been reported. The intense fire fight was over in just seven seconds, and quickly led to the militant group's surrender of the stronghold. The covert operation took place on an Islamic State outpost in Baghdad, Iraq. Several other terrorists emerged from the building but immediately surrendered and began panicking as two of the bodies didn’t have heads – they thought they were about to be executed.'

    Semiautomatic rifles have their place. In the proper hands, with quality ammo and parts, they can shoot a lot of rounds a long way. There is also a place for bolt guns, but the relatively slow rate of fire demands that they be employed with some stand-off. At distance, even a Lee-Enfield or Mosin-Nagant could be effective. My vote for home protection? The all-American choice is the Remington 870. The pump shotgun is incredibly simple. The controls? A safety button and a pump. Work the pump and shoot. Got a jam? Work the pump and shoot. Repeat as necessary and...

    Hunting corn country several years ago with Mike Krei, then a field rep for the National Rifle Association, we were working a draw for pheasants when one exploded from cover. Using a 20-gauge over-and-under, Krei fired twice and missed, after which I swung my 12-gauge side-by-side Beretta into action. My first shot missed, but then the ring neck sailed straight away at maybe 20 to 25 yards away, and my final round – a high-base 2¾-incher No. 6 – launched out of my fixed full choke barrel and the bird folded in a cloud of feathers. Krei proved repeatedly that...
