A 23-year-old man had been out of prison for barely two months when authorities said he pulled out two handguns during a fight at a Ridgeville home and sparked an exchange of gunfire that ultimately led to his death.

A man who returned fire and killed 23-year-old Ishmel Taquan Rivers on Sunday was acting in self-defense, according to initial evidence gathered by the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office. Rivers, who died shortly after at Trident Medical Center, recently completed a prison term for an involuntary manslaughter conviction tied to a 2012 shooting, state records show.

This feature appears in the April ‘17 issue of NRA America’s 1st Freedom, one of the official journals of the National Rifle Association. I’m no expert on so-called “gun-free” zones. In fact, I leave that title to researcher and author John Lott, who you will find answering several questions on this very important topic this Thursday.

Amy Schumer, gun control group’s favorite advocate, decided to go on a gun rant in her latest Netflix special, The Leather Special. In her rant, Schumer attempts to use sarcasm and “humor” – assuming you find her funny – to go after lawful gun owners. The problem with her rant is his logic is severely flawed. She’s simply spewing the typical gun control talking points.

The men who wore body armor while carrying firearms and cameras into the Dearborn Police Department last month have released their footage showing the tense moments of their encounter with police. The two men entered the Dearborn Police Department in February to file a complaint about a traffic stop. At least one of the men was armed with a gun.

Dearborn police have been credited with showing incredible restraint by some gun advocates. You can watch the encounter in the video player below.

I got a hearty chuckle out of Jeff Cooper when I told him about my new rifle and what I called it. This happened a year or two before his passing, at a time when he was still receiving visitors. As most shooters are aware, he had a long and productive life, rich with adventure and achievement. A World War II Marine, Cooper fought through a number of the Pacific War battles, eloped with his college sweetheart and came back to academic life in the post-war world. His interest in personal weaponry for sport and defense became an occupation, as he developed a body of pistol-shooting dogma that eventually became known as “the Modern Technique of the Pistol.”
