New Wisconsin Gun Law Lets Kids Of Any Age Hunt If An Adult "Mentor" Is Present
Post Date: 2017-11-15 23:57:43 by hondo68
Francois Nel/Getty Images Sport/Getty Images As of Saturday, a recently-enacted law in Wisconsin allows all children to hunt with guns as long as an adult is present, regardless of a child's age. The law's primary stipulation is that the adult has to be within arm's length of the child while hunting, though both the adult and child can have their own weapons. The new law is controversial, as some believe it poses a safety threat, while others note that it allows parents to determine what is best for their child, rather than the government.Republican Governor Scott Walker signed the hunting bill into law on Saturday. Previously, in Wisconsin, children aged 10 and older could hunt ...

Antifa fight club: Teaching the far left to punch and shoot
Post Date: 2017-10-21 01:14:56 by Tooconservative
Buzzfeed published a story yesterday about efforts by Antifa members to train like-minded leftists to throw a punch and fire a gun. This is entirely predictable if youve been paying attention to the growth of these movements and yet still a bit worrisome: The Haymaker Collective is one of many anti-fascist groups that began offering self-defense courses in the wake of Donald Trumps election and the political upheaval that has followed. Some groups train their members for unforeseen attacks, while other antifa organize more militant trainings to equip people with arms or prepare them for confrontations at protests

Broadcast Networks Push An Anti-Gun Agenda After Vegas Shooting
Post Date: 2017-10-17 09:48:54 by Deckard
ABC, CBS, and NBC gave five times more airtime to pushing gun control than they did supporting gun rights after the Las Vegas mass shooting, according to a new study. The Media Research Center analyzed all of the statements about guns the three broadcast networks carried between Oct. 2 and Oct. 8. In just six days, the networks managed to favor gun control over gun rights by a 5:1 ratio. Between the anchors, reporters, guests and soundbites, the three networks used 30 minutes and 17 seconds to argue in favor of gun control and used just 6 minutes and 27 seconds to favor gun rights. Outside of overall arguments for or against gun control, the networks also spent a whopping 28 ...

Post Date: 2017-10-14 12:10:14 by Tooconservative
A Smoke 4 Less store clerk in Durham, North Carolina got into a shootout with an armed robber, and police just released the video Thursday. Its pretty incredible. WATCH: First of all, you gotta give props to this clerk. From my detailed, CSI-level video analysis he was already brandishing his weapon before the masked gunman even entered the store. Now thats some emergency preparedness. He likely saw the robber coming in via the parking lot security camera, which police have also released. WATCH: I like this camera angle because it shows just how quickly this thug tucked his tail and ran. He may have planned to rob a Smoke 4 Less, but he was definitely not looking to get ...

Memo to leftist news editors: those stories you keep writing where you send reporters to buy guns to prove
I dont know, whatever youre trying to prove? You may want to run your own background check on the reporter first.

Unless youre a transgender something or other.Just ask the Chicago Sun Times, who sent a reporter (who wrote this) to buy a gun, only to find out he wasnt allowed to: In an attempt to show how easy it is to buy a modern sporting ...
Feinstein files bill banning “bump-fire stocks” and trigger cranks
Post Date: 2017-10-04 16:23:08 by Tooconservative
This one will pretty much be a slam dunk, right? Unlike almost all other gun-control demands in the aftermath of mass shootings, this proposal actually does have something to do with the incident that it addresses: Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a longtime advocate of stricter gun control measures, introduced a bill Wednesday that would ban the sale and possession of bump-stock equipment and other devices that essentially turn a semi-automatic weapon into an automatic one. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) told reporters Tuesday that multiple bump-stocks were found in the hotel room used by the shooter, who opened fire during the Route 91 ...

FiveThirtyEight Just Threw Cold Water On the Anti-Gun Left’s New Gun Control Push
Post Date: 2017-10-03 19:44:06 by Tooconservative
Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight site is an equal opportunity offender. The GOP slammed it during 2012 and 2016 for its election projections. Democrats lobbed some swipes at Silver for saying Republicans would have a good 2014 midterm year. He was right in 2012 and 2014, but wrong in 2016. It happens. Were all human. Yet, there is one piece on the site that analyzed and cut through the bull with gun violence that is definitely worth a read. Unlike anti-gun liberals who think we need more gun control, more background checks, and heckeven the prohibition of gun ownership in Americathe data crunching site had a verdict on the matter: to see gun violence through only mass ...
Vegas gunman used ‘bump-stock’ device to speed fire
Post Date: 2017-10-03 08:31:47 by Willie Green
NEW YORK (AP) The gunman who unleashed hundreds of rounds of gunfire on a crowd of concertgoers in Las Vegas attached what is called a bump-stock to two of his weapons, in effect converting semi-automatic firearms into fully automatic ones. The devices have attracted scrutiny in recent years from authorities. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein has long railed against them. Several years ago, she told The Associated Press she was concerned about the emergence of new technologies that could retrofit firearms to make them fully automatic. This replacement shoulder stock turns a semi-automatic rifle into a weapon that can fire at a rate of 400 to 800 rounds per ...

Democratic lawmakers called for swift congressional action in response to the Las Vegas shooting that left at least 50 dead the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history with Sen. Chris Murphy saying it is time for Congress to get off its ass and do something on gun control.

Should You Tell the Cops You Have a Gun?
Post Date: 2017-09-16 18:55:57 by Deckard
The fatal shooting of Philando Castile last year by a Minnesota police officer reinvigorated an old debate about how people who are licensed to carry a concealed weapon (CCW) should handle interactions with the cops. The officer, who was acquitted of manslaughter in June, panicked during a traffic stop after Castile, a CCW licensee, told him he was armed. Some gun owners argue that disclosure is considerate and prudent, while others worry it will escalate a routine traffic stop into a tense, unpleasant, and possibly life-threatening encounter. But virtually everyone agrees it's important to know the relevant legal requirements, which vary from state to state.
Janet Reno, American Saint

When former Attorney General Janet Reno died last November, the media heaped praise on her as if she had been justice incarnate. Reno had long enjoyed sainthood inside the Beltway; the Womens Bar Association of the District of Columbia even created a Janet Reno Torchbearer Award. But Renos record of deceit, brutality, and power grabs should not be forgotten by any American who cares about freedom. Shortly after Reno became attorney general in 1993, she approved the FBI final assault on the Branch Davidians holed up in a rickety building outside of Waco, Texas.

2 Years After CBP Took His Truck Because of a Few Forgotten Bullets, Still No Hearing
Post Date: 2017-09-14 07:10:16 by Deckard
Gerardo Serrano was on his way to visit his cousin in Mexico when Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents at the border station in Eagle Pass, Texas, found a magazine containing five .380-caliber rounds in the center console of his pickup truck. Serrano, a U.S. citizen with a concealed-carry permit issued by Kentucky, said he did not realize the magazine was in the truck and offered to leave it behind as he continued on his journey. But as far as the CBP agents were concerned, those five cartridges made Serrano an international arms smuggler. Although he was never charged with a crime, the agents seized the truck, a 2014 Ford F-250. That was two years ago, and Serrano still has not been ...
