He made his initial appearance in Kenosha County Circuit Court on Nov. 2, three days after being transferred from Lake County, Illinois, where a judge ruled against his extradition fight.

At least one of the intruders was armed. The armed man hit her husband with his gun, and then pointed the gun at her. The defending woman shot one of the attackers several times. All three intruders ran from the home and drove away.

Recently, one mom questioned whether her stance on gun safety, and potential access to a firearm via her parents-in-law, was needlessly harsh. The internet response was overwhelming: you do you, mama.

An AR-pattern pistol in .300 Blackout gives you a variety of options unique to that caliber.

Now Red Arrow Weapons is making their RAW15 pistol .300 Blackout in two different color packages: midnight bronze and black with red accents. The forged 7075 T6 Aluminum upper and lower receivers of these pistols are complimented with a Tailhook Mod 2 brace and host of other part that are designed for performance

In 2012, one decade after Springfield Armory introduced its XD line of handguns, the company launched the XD-S, with the "S" in the model designation meaning "single-stack." This slim and compact version of Springfield's "eXtreme Duty" pistols set the standard for compact handguns firing a full-power cartridge. Initially offered in .45 ACP, it was groundbreaking for a firearm of its size in that chambering.

With the current state of affairs around the country, the quest of readiness is or should be on everyone’s mind. I would challenge you to ask yourself, am I ready? It is a bit perplexing to me, that dedicated students continue to train, and agree that training is beneficial and should be done. But when the time comes to actually put some of that training or doctrine to use in a course that is reality based it would appear many have not kept up with taught skills since previous training sessions. In many cases those training sessions were literally months or even a year ago.

Miranda Schlitz, 45, who works as a server at a drive-in restaurant called Big Star, recalled that when Kenosha’s downtown was in the throes of unrest and destruction, she was so concerned for her family’s safety that she went to stay with her sister in a neighboring city.

“I was literally afraid in my home,” said Ms. Schlitz, who is white. She echoed one of Mr. Trump’s often-tweeted campaign themes. “We need law and order.”

In a legal analysis, Spokane County Prosecutor Larry Haskell noted that the law still allows for "recognized militia organizations of this state" to parade in public with firearms. State law divides militias into the organized militia (the state National Guard) and the "unorganized militia," a sweeping term that literally includes every able-bodied man over 18.

When I used to hear people from states like Washington and Massachusetts say things like “Well, yeah but it's legal here.” No, no it is not. What you have in those states, and now New Jersey is a state government that is not willing to enforce federal law. An argument can be made that the same states that have “legalized” the use of skunk weed, by ignoring federal law, also ignore federal law in the way of ignoring the enumerated right of the Second Amendment. Many pro-green states also happen to be anti-civil rights.

Remember this fun fact, in a state that has “legal” use of Marijuana, a federal peace officer can still arrest and charge you with the crime of possession.
