    Image by Troy Nemitz On May 31, 2018, about two o'clock in the afternoon, 23-year-old Noah Kolis was guiding three friends from Chicago. They started at his boyhood home near Cora, Wyoming. His dog, a Chesapeake-Lab mix, was with them. They were heading to some rock formations. Noah was carrying his 460V Smith & Wesson revolver. Two other men in the party were carrying bear spray.  The two men with bear spray had fallen 50 yards behind. The dog alerted on something. Noah thought it was some sort of big animal. Then he saw the bears, a grizzly sow...

    Six-time All-Star Kevin Brown holds alleged mail thieves at gunpoint for police 11:32 PM ET ESPN Kevin Brown has gone from striking out big league batters to retiring would-be mail thieves. The longtime major league pitcher seemingly put an end to a recent run of stolen mail in his north Macon, Georgia, neighborhood, apprehending a 15-year-old boy and another man before their arrests Wednesday. According to a report by The (Macon) Telegraph, Brown hid in a neighbor's yard and waited for the alleged thieves to swipe some mail. When they tried, Brown caught them, holding them at gunpoint until police...
  • NJ’S NEW GUN LAWS: HIGHER FEES, EASIER TO CONFISCATE

    NJ 101.5 ^ | June 13, 2018 | Mychal Simmons
    Six new gun-control laws were enacted Wednesday, including smaller ammunition magazine limits and new "red flag" laws designed to take guns from people deemed dangerous. Though New Jersey has among the nation’s most restrictive gun-control systems, most Democrats have been pushing for years to enact more, particularly in response to school shootings. Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald, D-Camden, recalled a Statehouse meeting he had in April 2013 with Connecticut parents whose children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The cut in the maximum ammunition magazine, from 15 to 10 rounds, is one proposal that those parents emphasized. “We made...
  • Apparently Disoriented David Hogg Says High Min. Wage Makes Kids Violent

    Whatever teen anti-gun celebrity David Hogg learned in high school, it apparently wasn’t the English language. It’s that, or he actually wants to increase the number of gun deaths in inner-city communities. Either way, the poster boy for the gun-grabbing left is showing all the world just how confused and ignorant he really is. In recent a Twitter exchange with a conservative commentator, Hogg let his ignorance slip with a colossally nonsensical argument for the left’s favorite economic policy: Raising the minimum wage.

    This is a very good post that has been sitting dormant on FR for 15 years. Meanwhile, the radical left has been on the war-path trying to ban guns, and raising all kinds of heck. I think that it is really a good time to dust off this old post and take a good hard look at it. There is some significant information in this post that makes mince-meat out of the arguments being dished out by the media. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/516731/posts

    A driver who spotted a "black object" flying through the air on a Washington highway stopped 18 miles later and found a handgun embedded in his bumper. Washington State Patrol Trooper Guy Gill said the man was driving Wednesday on Interstate 5, near Lakewood, when he saw the object fly through the air and appear to strike his bumper. The man told troopers he didn't think the object had struck his bumper very hard and no warning lights came on, so he decided not to stop and investigate. Gill said the man stopped at an Olympia gas station about 18...

    OK, I know what you're thinking - you're obviously skeptical of a proposal like this coming from a Conservative who claims to respect the 2nd Amendment. Bear with me, though. I could throw out stats like actual numbers trying to tie gun ownership to violent crime. I could trot out the CDC's own study regarding the use of guns for crime versus self defense. How about the lies that the gun grabbers like to use? Or maybe the many areas where the government broke down prior to and during the Parkland shooting? Even the Santa Fe shooter, while not obvious at first,...

    A situation escalates when the police tell a man to break into his home.Moments after arriving at the city house, Rochester Police Officer Korey McNees offered a solution for the man standing outside who wanted to retrieve items from his uncooperative girlfriend who'd earlier changed the locks: Just break into the house, McNees said. The law allowed it, McNees told the man time and time again in conversations outside of the Genesee Park Boulevard home and captured on police-worn body cameras. If the boyfriend lived there, then he was in his legal right to kick in a door or break...

    Bobby Amos stood outside of an Episcopal church in Alabama last spring, begging police to kill him. He had been suicidal earlier and held a gun to his head, his wife said, and she had hidden the weapon at the church, where he had followed her to retrieve it. There was little to indicate that Mr. Amos, 39, was a danger to anyone but himself that day. He was arrested unarmed outside the church, in need of treatment and counseling, according to his lawyer, Fred Tiemann. Police recovered the pistol from the building. Federal prosecutors, citing Mr. Amos’s conviction of...

    These highly unusual firearms were captured by Australian forces after the occupation of East Timor by Indonesia. In 1999 and later, Australian forces were part of the UN forces used to keep order after Indonesia pulled their military forces out after 24 years of occupation. Some of the unusual design features include the welded together three stacked barrels with the non-functional trigger guard and trigger. The ignition system is said to be designed for cigarettes, but any source of flame or a heated wire could work.  Using flash holes for open match ignition is usually a bad idea in...

    (KTRK/CNN) -- A Houston father said it was his duty to turn his son in to police for bragging about the crimes he allegedly committed. Christian Daniels, 18, told his father via a FaceTime call that he burglarized hundreds of cars in one week, according to court documents. The father, T. Daniels, told KTRK his son even admitted to stealing an officer’s firearm. "He pulled paperwork out of the bag, and I said, 'What does that paperwork say?' And he put the camera closer to the paperwork and it said Houston Police Department,” said Daniels. “That really kind of ticked...

    STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – The sound of gunfire and someone shouting “Everybody down, everybody” shocked moviegoers sitting in the lobby of the Bow Tie Majestic 6 movie theaters Sunday night, but the incident appears to have been a juvenile prank. Five children ranging in ages from 10 to 16 were arrested and face both criminal charges and potential school disciplinary action after police say they used toy cap guns to stage the mock attack in Stamford, reports CBS2’s Tony Aiello. Police say three members of the group had noisy toy guns and fired them in the theater while shouting “everyone...

    Michigan Concealed Pistol License holders have an extremely low murder rate. Japan has a very low murder rate. Japan is also a very law-abiding culture. The United States, as a whole, has a much higher murder rate than Japan. Within the United States, there is a law abiding culture that has a murder rate as low as Japan's. That culture consists of gun owners who carry guns legally.The FBI generally includes legally defined murder, which may be in the first or second degree, and non-negligent manslaughter, in the definition of murder for their statistics. A more precise definition might...

    STROUDSBURG — Tim Primrose remembers how old the Stroudsburg High School rifle team’s equipment was even in the 1990s, when he attended Stroudsburg High. “They were using rifles from the ’70s,” said Primrose, owner of Primrose Landscaping in East Stroudsburg. When the Stroudsburg School Board recently voted 6-2 against a $4,730 grant offered to update the rifle team’s equipment, because that grant came from the National Rifle Association, Primrose and others expressed disappointment. Viewed by many as opposing gun control, the NRA has been at the center of controversy in the wake of the February fatal mass shooting at Marjory...
