In-State Vs. Out of-State Hunting
Submitted by: David Williamson

Growing up in the great state of Arizona, I hunted and fished annually throughout my entire childhood. It was a simpler time for me. No obligations, no bills, just worrying about when I would get back into the hills again. We had our deer camp most years and had a blast at all of them. Stories that I still tell today originated from those very hunts. The thought of hunting out-of-state is not one that hit me sooner than later. I was quite content with spending all of my time in Arizona. That was until a few years back when I got sick of not getting drawn for elk in my home state.

Magic Bullets Redefine Rifle Cartridge Choices

In the quest for the “best” hunting rifle cartridge, the simple fact is that many of us are going about it the wrong way. Once you look at it carefully, it’s easy to understand why. It’s because we haven’t taken into account the use of magic bullets.

The science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke wrote, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Hunters, especially, labor under a misunderstanding of ballistics which keeps them from seeing the “magic” available across the counter at any gun store.

A Detroit gas station clerk scared off two men who were trying to steal the ATM from inside his station on Sunday night.

The station is near Houston Whittier and Hayes streets on the city's east side. Video from inside the building shows two men walk in and immediately start hitting the ATM with a sledgehammer.

The clerk is shown screaming at them before scaring them off.

"I told them, 'Stop knocking my ATM before you get hurt,'" said Sonic Abdo, the gas station owner. "But they still knocking on it, so when I pull my gun out, they saw it and ran away."

The men took off without being able to steal anything from the store.
 

Hockey Puck Fantasy Versus Bleeding Reality to Defend Our Schools

The topic of school security came up at a faculty meeting at Oakland University in Michigan. Someone said they should fight back against an attacker. That sounded like a good idea. The faculty passed a proposal to issue hockey pucks for school security.

No one who studies institutional security would propose handing out hockey pucks to defend a politician , a celebrity, or a business executive.

This is negligence. Stop playing political games with our children’s lives.

The nation’s attention was on Chicago recently where a police officer and two others were murdered by a deranged gunman at Chicago’s Mercy Hospital. The loss of life may have even been greater were it not for the bravery and heroism of Chicago police officer Samuel Jimenez, who gave his life to protect others. While we mourn the lives lost in tragedies like these, it’s important to learn from them and have a real conversation in our society about whether we are truly doing everything possible to protect ourselves and those around us.

In March of 2016, members of Michigan Open Carry (MOC) and Michigan Gun Owners (MGO) were manning a booth they had rented in the DeVos Place Convention Center. They were openly carrying holstered pistols, which has never been against the law in Michigan, except for a small number of restricted areas. While people with concealed carry permits may not carry a concealed firearm into a school, they may openly carry a holstered pistol in Michigan. They can openly carry holstered pistols into the State Capitol.

A Harvard graduate student claims she was kicked out of her Massachusetts apartment because her roommates were “uncomfortable” with her keeping guns in the home. “What I find uncomfortable is coming home to find out that six people I barely know went into my bedroom without permission and went through every single one of my drawers, without any regard to my privacy whatsoever,” Leyla Pirnie, a 24-year-old from Alabama, told the Washington Free Beacon.

The state lottery director asked the Select Board to place a question to allow Keno at bars and restaurants in town on the warrant for March’s Town Meeting. Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery, presented a list of 25 Exeter “pouring establishments” possessing a full liquor license, which qualifies them to obtain a Keno system under the state law. He cited a recent UNH study commissioned by the lottery where businesses that offer Keno reported “overwhelmingly positive” feedback due to increased business activity.

This may seem to be a dark, angry diatribe, but it is not a call to arms. It is, instead, a call to wait and grow stronger. And, at the same time, it is a call to refuse to compromise with the liars. Years ago, when most of you were just young pup, gunnies were already being demonized by folks who were afraid of our guns. They called us names because we called out their lies. But they never stopped lying about us and our firearms.

Concealed pistol license holders in Michigan can now renew their licenses online through the state website.

There are 644,677 active CPLs in Michigan. The license is valid for up to five years.

The new system for renewing CPLs went into effect on Nov. 30, according to the Michigan State Police.

Residents need to have an existing CPL to use the new system, including a personal identification number. People can get the information from the county clerk that issued the original CPL to get the PIN number.

CPL holders can still renew their license in-person at a county clerk's office or by mail with a completed application and payment.

“Condolences pour in from New York state, Hudson Valley with passing of former President George H.W. Bush,” the Daily Freeman reports. “U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said Bush was ‘a fine man and even when he opposed your view, you knew he was doing what he thought was best for America. His yearning for a kinder and gentler nation seems more needed now than when he first called for it.’”

A “red flag law” may just be the newest euphemism for “reasonable gun control”. In general, a “red flag law” is some type of state law (although it could at some point be federal) which allows the state to take firearms away from an individual and/or to deny that individual the ability to purchase a gun or to obtain a handgun permit if certain “red flags” exist related to the person.

It doesn’t matter what species you’re hunting: sometimes whatever you’re doing just isn’t working. The birds won’t decoy, and you don’t know what to try next. Sometimes the solution is an easy in-the-field fix; sometimes your hunt was doomed before the first birds came into view. Or the conditions are so poor that you would have been better off sleeping in.

If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago, and a racist today. —THOMAS SOWELL
