In browsing the news recently, this headline stood out among the tripe: “Why carry a whistle when those vulnerable to crime can pack a pistol?” Struck by the logic of the question, I read the article. Only thing is, the writer, never really answered the query. Instead, he focused on how easy it is for people to get their hands on guns and how that’s going to be the downfall of that city, and civilization as he knows it.

Teller County is gun country with more citizens owning firearms on a per capita basis than practically any burg in the nation, well almost. But on the downside, the region has featured a lack of prime areas for folks to partake in shooting practice and training and public ranges. However, that scenario could soon change, with the formation of a local marksmanship and self-defense group in Cripple Creek, and a push to open up a shooting area near the public works facility. A public meeting of the group is set for Feb. 24 at the Cripple Creek/Victor High School.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides U.S. citizens the right to bear arms. The amendment, adopted in 1791, reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” For nearly 228 years, Americans have been debating and arguing over its interpretation, meaning and whether it provides collective gun rights or individual gun rights.

The Deschutes County Commission won’t pass an ordinance prohibiting county resources from being used to enforce state gun laws, but the Redmond resident who pitched the law plans to take it to the ballot box. During a Friday morning work session, all three county commissioners agreed they wouldn’t take up a draft ordinance Redmond resident Jerrad Robison gave them in January. Commissioner Tony DeBone, who brought up the ordinance, said he wanted to make it clear that the county wouldn’t pursue the proposed law.

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., faced a mostly - but not completely - friendly crowd of about 150 Saturday morning at his town hall at Bend's Summit High School, which was interrupted - but not ended - by two people who were removed by police, one shouting at the senator, "You're a coward!" For about 90 minutes - most of it livestreamed on KTVZ.COM -- the senator took questions on a variety of issues, such as the environment, the Russia investigation, border security and gun control, drawing frequent applause, such as when he said, "I believe President (Donald) Trump's declaration of a national emergency is unconstitutional, through and through."

When officials in Waterville approved a plan last year to move City Council meetings into a new downtown common space owned by Colby College, they didn’t foresee a change to the rules about whether residents can bring guns to meetings.
Now some residents say the college’s policy against allowing guns in the Chace Community Forum is a safety concern and a reason for the city to change venues again for council meetings.

“Remember the Alamo!” Most Americans are familiar with the famous Texas rallying cry. But what is it we actually remember, and how do we remember it? What many believe to be fact may actually be just legend. Did William B. Travis really draw a line in the sand? Even historians disagree on some of the most well-known events. Did Davy Crockett really survive the battle and surrender? Much of our collective memory of the events at the Alamo comes from film and television. Did James Bowie really cut down the invaders with a seven-barreled Nock gun?

Indiana lawmakers are still considering a measure that would arm Hoosier teachers. House bill 1253 would allow schools to use state money to train teachers how to use handguns. It’s a very controversial topic that has many voicing their thoughts. Mark Lee of the Vigo County Teachers Association says safety has always been a priority in Vigo County Schools, but arming teachers is not something the association endorses. "So we're way ahead of the state, way ahead of the nation basically. How we plan for school emergencies is a school safety issue so there's no need for teachers in our school corporation to have guns in the classroom,” said Lee.

‘Full-scale Constitutional Revolt’ Against WA Gun Control?

The on-going fight and increasing resistance to a wide-ranging, and many believe unconstitutional, gun law passed by Washington State voters last fall is “beginning to resemble a full-scale “constitutionalist” revolt against gun control,” according to a Thursday story in The Guardian, the left-of-center British newspaper.

For whatever reason, the Brits seem to have a fixation on the Yank “gun culture.” That “culture” dates back to April 19, 1775 and a couple of Massachusetts villages called Lexington and Concord.

The Second Amendment is one of most fundamental provisions of the Bill of Rights, and one of the most fiercely debated. Since it was first put to paper, legal scholars, gun owners and anti-gun activists have engaged in an endless discussion over the meaning and scope of the Second Amendment, and for most of that time, gun owners have been on the losing side of the argument.

Back when this Eastern New Mexico town was founded as a tent city in 1901, it was unofficially known as “Ragtown.” Another nickname — “Six Shooter Siding” — later emerged, reportedly because of the large number of gunfights that took place there. “Six Shooter Siding” would be used by a saloon on Old Route 66. Today, like many old commercial establishments in Tucumcari, Six Shooter Siding is boarded up. And it’s been at least a century or so since the town was renowned for gun violence.

The NRA magazine The American Rifleman’s March 2019 cover has set off the left. (See update at bottom of article.) Democrats have a short fuse in the gun rights debate anyway, but the current outrage is particularly unserious. The cover features a photo op Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats, including former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, took when Pelosi spoke about universal background check legislation Democrats are putting up for a vote next week. Next to that photo is the NRA’s wording – “Target Practice” with the subtitle “Congressional Democrats target gun owners for persecution with extreme firearm transfer bans.”
