The Delta County Board of Commissioners is preparing to vote next month on a proposed resolution that would make the county a “sanctuary county” for the Second Amendment. Local residents had another opportunity to express their opinions Tuesday.

Commissioner David Moyle shared an early draft of the proposal during the board’s Nov. 25, 2019, meeting. If approved, the resolution would declare Delta County a Second Amendment sanctuary county. The board would also support the county’s sheriff and prosecuting attorney in the exercise of their discretion to not enforce unconstitutional firearms laws under the proposal.

Michigan deer hunters donated a record amount of venison to feed hungry families.

Hunters donated 58,355 pounds of venison last year to Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger. It was enough meat to provide 233,420 meals.

“Michigan hunters who have donated deer to feed the hungry of our state continue a practice going back to settlement days when hunters provided for those who could not provide for themselves,” said Dean Hall, MSAH executive director, in a press release. “We are so grateful to all hunters who stepped up and shared their harvest.”

Since MSAH’s creation in 1991, hunters have donated over 746,005 pounds of ground venison.

Self-defense is especially important for the less physically able, but what use is the great equalizer of a gun if you have to already be big and strong to use one? While proper technique can help, it’s also easy to forget how to operate a gun properly while under life-threatening stress. Plus practicing at the range is much more enjoyable without having to struggle with running slides or hanging on to heavily recoiling guns. Fortunately, manufacturers have shown increasing interest in designing pistols that are easier to use.

Today, January 22nd, legislation was introduced in the Alabama Legislature to create a new lifetime carry permit for state residents. Please contact your lawmakers and urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 39 and Senate Bill 47.

For state residents over 65, the fee will drop to $150. HB 39 and SB 47 are companion bills and we need both measures passed to secure passage of this critical legislation.

A drunken driving conviction could mean losing the right to buy and own firearms in Pennsylvania, the U.S. Court of Appeals has decided.

The precedent-setting opinion handed down Friday hinges on the federal government’s definition of a “serious crime” — the level a crime must reach to trigger an individual being barred from buying firearms.

Under federal law, a serious crime is one that can carry a state-prison sentence of two or more years.
