In 2018, American Outdoor Brands Corporation, parent company of Smith & Wesson, faced a shareholder resolution demanding a report “on the company’s activities related to gun-safety measures and mitigation of harm associated with gun products.” The resolution, put forth by a minority group of stockholders operating under a Canada-based social-justice activist group, forced the company’s board of directors to issue this report by Feb. 8, 2019. After a shareholder vote mandated that a report be compiled, AOBC complied and rolled out the company’s findings, now available at the AOBC website.

Figures from the California Justice Department show that gun confiscations are surging under the state’s red flag law.
The San Francisco Chronicle there were 86 gun confiscation orders issued in California in 2016 and 104 in 2017. There were 424 orders issued in 2018. he surge is largely due to approaches adopted by counties like San Diego, where the state-level adoption of a red flag law opened the door to county and municipal confiscatory plans.
 

Canadian Gun Owners Resisting Quebec Registration

While it has been virtually ignored by the American establishment media, there has evidently been massive resistance to an effort to register long guns in the Canadian province of Quebec, which hardly fits with the gun control narrative on either side of the border.

According to the Montreal Gazette, “Just days after the Jan. 29 deadline to register (long guns in Quebec), about 75 per cent of long guns estimated to be in the province have not been registered.” That was more than a week ago, and it demonstrates that gun owners in Canada are not unlike their contemporaries in the United States. The single difference appears to be that Canadian gun owners do not have a Second Amendment protection in their constitution.
 

The Molon Labe Flag: From the Ancient Spartan Battle of Thermopylae to Modern Liberty

While it has deep roots in the very beginnings of the Western notion of liberty, the Molon Labe flag was likely never flown by the earliest patriots. In fact, the main reason it resonates today is for its history as a militant stance against tyrants – Persian tyrants to be exact. “Molon labe” is a phrase that began during the Persian War, when the Persian Empire (then the biggest power in the world) was looking to expand from Asia into Europe. As an attempt to conquer the Greek City States, Darius of Persia sent his emissaries on a quest for a token tribute – “earth and water” – and almost all complied except one. Sparta told the Persians where to go using the laconic phrase, “dig it out for yourself.”

In November, Washington voters spoke overwhelmingly, passing with nearly 60 percent of the vote a sweeping array of new gun regulations. But, it turns out, voters might not have had the last word. In at least 13 mostly rural counties across Washington, from the Pacific Coast to the eastern wheat fields, county sheriffs have publicly pledged not to enforce the new law, known as Initiative 1639, citing their personal opposition to it.

At Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge Women’s March in January, Ross Eliot brought up the rear, more concerned with what might be happening behind the group than keeping pace with the many chants from the roughly 250-person crowd. Eliot was there as security. He was looking over his shoulder for anyone who might attack the group. With the threat of right-wing violence on the rise, Eliot is among a growing number of activists on the left who are taking a page out of the 1960s civil rights movement: armed self-defense.

The Sioux Falls Trophy Gun Show is the largest gun show in the Midwest. It’s a way for gun enthusiasts to bring their guns to show off or buy new ones. Recent legislation was widely talked about at this year’s show. Today’s gun show was packed with hundreds of people to check out the large display of guns brought by dealers. Dealers came from all over the country, from both coasts, the bottom of Texas all the way to Canada.

CCW Weekend: Is the 10mm Everything it's Cracked Up to Be?

The “caliber wars” are completely redundant by this point, but people still like getting into it and one of the rounds that is getting more frequently touted as a wunderkind is the 10mm Auto. The Springfield 10mm TRP RMR is a joy to shoot and the new(ish) XDM 4.5 in 10mm sure ain’t bad either. It’s a great round, no doubt about it. Is it everything people say it is? Is the 10mm the king of all handgun rounds?
 

US Appeals Court to Revisit Open Carrying of Guns

A federal appeals court has decided to reconsider its recent decision that the Second Amendment of the US Constitution protects the right to openly carry guns in self-defense. In an order on Friday, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals said it will revisit whether Hawaii acted lawfully in denying the plaintiff George Young a permit to openly carry a loaded gun in public. Circuit Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain wrote for a 2-1 majority last July 24 that “we do not take lightly the problem of gun violence, which the State of Hawaii has understandably sought to fight,” but that the state nevertheless violated Young’s rights.
 

Washington Sheriffs: Do Your Job and Enforce the Law

County sheriffs are elected to enforce laws adopted through the legislative process and ballot box, no matter if they like them. Sheriffs are not elected to write laws, nor prosecute them. And they’re certainly not elected to act like judges with badges, deciding by fiat which laws to uphold or ignore. That’s why Washington residents should be distressed by a growing parade of sheriffs who’ve said they won’t enforce Initiative 1639, the gun-safety measure ratified by 59 percent of voters in the Nov. 6 election.

Grant County Sheriff Frank Gomez is joining with other New Mexico sheriffs in opposition to several bills under consideration in Santa Fe. In a press release provided to the Daily Press on Thursday, Gomez noted two bills that are of particular concern to the department. “Law-abiding gun owners need to be alerted to several firearm-related bills being pushed at the Roundhouse by out-of-state gun control organizations,” Gomez said in the release. The statement specifically called out House Bill 8 and Senate Bill 8, the “universal background check” bills that the Association of New Mexico Sheriffs lobbied against at the Legislature this week.

California already has 109 laws on the books that regulate the use of firearms, more gun-control rules than any other state. More, it seems, are on the way. Last week an all-Democratic contingent of lawmakers announced plans to send a raft of new gun-related bills to the governor before the end of the legislative session. The 16 lawmakers were joined by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, a gun control advocate and mass shooting survivor, along with representatives of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Given the clear correlation between Chicago’s near outlaw of gun ownership and its historic homicide rate over the past few years, it’s almost unbelievable that someone would suggest that the remedy for the bloodshed is more gun control.

In early December, NRA-ILA alerted gun owners to an ongoing dispute between the administration of Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and the state courts. The governor’s office had advised that it would refuse to comply with lawful court orders to reinstate some Massachusetts residents’ Firearms Identification Cards. Early this week, the Boston Globe reported that the Governor’s office had reversed course and will comply with the court orders, returning Massachusetts to some semblance of a Republican form of government.

A couple weeks ago the Supreme Court made a shocking (but welcomed) announcement: the high court would be hearing the first gun case in a decade. The last time the Supreme Court heard a gun-related case was back in 2008 when they ruled "the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home” in the landmark Heller decision.

Courts are issuing an unprecedented number of orders to seize firearms from people they deem to be mentally ill or threats to others, following a rash of state-level legislation aimed at curbing mass shootings across the country. Even as conservatives sound the alarm about potential Second Amendment violations, supporters -- sometimes across party lines -- say these "red flag" laws are among the most promising tools to reduce the nearly 40,000 suicides and homicides by firearm each year in the country.

House to Move Forward with Gun Control Proposals

On Wednesday, gun owners got to see what a Nancy Pelosi controlled Congress looks like as the House Judiciary Committee held its first gun control hearing in nearly a decade. Things went as one would expect. While the hearing was labeled “Preventing Gun Violence: A Call to Action,” it was intended to be the legislative launching pad for H.R. 8, the “universal” background check bill introduced by California Representative Mike Thompson (D). As we have pointed out, “universal” background checks will do nothing to prevent gun violence. H.R. 8 does, however, have the potential of ensnaring otherwise law-abiding gun owners unfamiliar with its proposed new restrictions on lawful activities that pose no threat to public safety.

Back in 1999, Frank Menendez didn’t like how the NRA responded to the Columbine mass shooting. He thought the group showed “poor taste.” Less than two weeks after two shooters killed 12 other students and one teacher at a Colorado high school, the National Rifle Association went ahead with an annual meeting in nearby Denver. The event was scaled back that year, but some in the community didn’t want the NRA there at all.

When it comes to Hollywood and guns, two things stand as eternal truths: suppressed guns are far quieter in the movies than in real life, and Tinseltown is replete with hypocrites determined to deprive you of your right to own them. Fictional depictions of suppressed gunfire only approach the real thing if we limit the comparison to rimfire suppressors, for several reasons. Rimfire cartridges produce relatively small volumes of gas that can be contained in an acceptably sized suppressor and the bullets are lighter and launched at lower velocity than centerfires.
