Middleburgh Mayor Matthew Avitabile has filed a lawsuit in United states District Court arguing that he has the right to carry a taser. If he wins-and Schoharie County Attorney Mike West is doubtful he will-Mr. Avitabile said it doesn't mean he'll start carrying a taser on the streets of Middleburgh. But it doesn't mean he won't be carrying one either.

Roy Innis, a polarizing civil rights icon who famously tussled with the Rev. Al Sharpton and a white supremacist on TV talk shows, has died. He was 82. Innis died Sunday at a New York City hospital. The cause was complications from Parkinson’s disease, according to the Washington Post.
Innis led the Congress of Racial Equality for more than four decades — espousing a conservatism that was reviled by left-leaning activists. ...
Innis decried affirmative action and loudly opposed busing as a strategy to combat segregation in schools.
A National Rifle Association board member, he also drew the condemnation of other black activists by arguing that gun control was “meant to deprive you of your freedom.”

The M1911 Hits the Hunting Trail

It began with a conversation at Tejon Ranch. For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of hunting the Tejon, it's a 270,000 acre ranch about an hour north of downtown Los Angeles that hosts seasonal hunts of elk, mule deer, turkey and various fur bearers along with year-round pig hunting. A few years back, under pressure from various state and special interest groups, the ranch agreed that all future hunts would be "lead free." That presented no problem for rifle hunters, as there were several manufacturers who loaded ammo with Barnes's excellent all copper bullets. But for the guides who venture into heavy brush after wounded pigs with handguns, it was a different story.

Utah's leading newspaper is urging Gov. Gary Herbert to kill any attempt to "eviscerate" the state's concealed carry law by ending a key requirement needed to obtain a permit. "As the governor argued in 2013, there seems to be no concrete example of how the long-standing law that requires a minimal level of training for anyone to legally carry a concealed firearm inconveniencies, much less criminalizes, any person's right to carry a weapon in self-defense," The Salt Lake Tribune said in an editorial published Tuesday.

Had Esteban Santiago been in Connecticut, Indiana or California two months ago when he spoke incoherently to FBI agents about a U.S. intelligence agency controlling his mind, local police might not have been so quick to give him back his gun. Police and families in those states have something missing in Alaska — a legal basis upon which to seek a court order to temporarily remove a gun from someone in crisis, who appears to pose a threat to himself and others.

After two mass shootings in the state, some Florida lawmakers want an all-out ban on assault rifles. Florida would join a small handful of states in the Northeast and California if it passed a ban. The legislation calls for banning assault-style automatic rifles. It also calls for gun buyers to face tougher background checks, and it would make it harder to sell a gun to someone else.
