Alexandria's Bosek juggles responsibilities back home to compete on world stage

Alexandria’s Kaisa Bosek was not long into her biathlon career in 2016 when she and her family casually talked about where the sport could potentially take her.

Kaisa was just a seventh-grader back then. She was interested in seeing exactly how much she would like the sport, which tests an athlete’s speed on cross-country skis and marksmanship on a shooting range, and not necessarily focused on competing on a world stage, but the family was aware of those opportunities being out there if she worked at it.

"I'd like to just keep going right now and see where I end up," she said in an interview with the Echo Press in March of 2016.

Four years later, Kaisa has ended up among some of the best young biathletes in the United States.

During the virus scare, many citizens who wanted to buy a gun ran into our bizarre gun-control scheme and were disarmed. That wasn’t all they learned.

How does disarming the honest citizens make us safer? Millions of new gun owners and their families are now asking themselves that very question.

One thing Lucas Kozeniesky loves about the sport of shooting is that anyone of any size or background can pick it up. “There’s no physical or genetic thing that makes you better at pulling a trigger or pointing a gun,” he says.

That may be true, but for Kozeniesky himself, years of training and dedication to the sport have led him to a pinnacle few athletes ever reach — qualification for his second Olympic Games.

Eleven years after first learning the sport at a Northern Virginia high school, Kozeniesky hopes to be gunning for gold later this year at the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo.

Amid COVID-19 virus fears, guns and ammunition are selling like toilet paper.

Firearm and ammo sales typically spike during emergencies and after mass shootings, when calls for stricter gun laws ramp up, but Metro Detroit gun store owners say the current demand is unprecedented.

Driving the frenzy are concerns that criminals will take advantage of relaxed police enforcement of low-level misdemeanors, that people will become violent if forcibly quarantined, and that gun sales will be banned, vendors and customers say.

William Kucyk, owner of Action Impact Firearm Range and Training Center in Southfield and Eastpointe, said he's scrambling to keep up with the rush of new customers.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has told Gov. Wolf he has until 8 p.m. on Friday to respond to the arguments in the case.

While people are stocking up on everyday essentials such as hand sanitizer, food and toilet paper during the coronavirus outbreak, a growing number of Americans are seeking out another hot commodity — guns and ammunition.

“It’s been normal until probably about the last five or six days,” said Ethan Frontz, partner/instructor at Instruments of Freedom Tactical Weapons Training Group (IOF-TWTG) in Wooster. “Obviously, once people heard that there may be possible things shut down on behalf of the government, they were starting to come in and purchase. I don’t have any hard numbers, but there has definitely been a spike in sales in guns and ammo.”

The coronavirus pandemic has put a strain on the gun and ammunition industry, as well as the FBI's background check system, due to surging demand.

So many Americans are flocking to local gun stores to stock up on firearms and ammunition in the face of the novel coronavirus that dealers say they are scrambling to keep up with demand. The surge is also causing delays in FBI background checks, forcing gun owners and first-time buyers alike to wait for their purchases to be approved. In the worst affected areas, the normally instantaneous checks could begin to take weeks.

Gun and ammo sales are soaring in Oklahoma and around the country amid fears and worry about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Guns are selling in a way not seen since the days following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut in 2012.

“Ammo sales and gun sales are off the charts,” said Mike Rust, general manager of H&H Shooting Sports in Oklahoma City. “It started about Friday, but we got seriously slammed on Saturday. We did as much sales on Monday as we did on that Saturday. And that’s a lot. It’s a whole lot.”
