Madelynn Bernau, 22, of Waterford has been aiming at this goal for several years.

Like the sure-shot she has proven to be, on Monday she hit it.

Bernau earned a spot on the U.S. Olympic women's trapshooting squad by outscoring all of her competitors in a tense four-day qualification event in Tuscon, Arizona.

Together with scores from Part 1 of the selection process held last fall, Bernau broke 481 targets and secured the second of two American slots for the 2020 Tokyo Games.

Kayle Browning, 27, of Conway, Arkansas, placed first overall in the women's trap qualifying with a score of 493.

Bernau was in fourth place entering Part 2 of the qualifying process, held Friday through Monday at Tucson Trap and Skeet Club.
 

MI: ATF says MI firearm dealers must conduct background checks on everyone – even if they have a CPL

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives issued a public safety advisory Tuesday to all federal firearm licensed dealers (FFLs) in the state regarding a change in background checks.

In the letter, the ATF tells all Michigan FFLs that they are required to conduct a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) before selling a firearm to someone who doesn't hold an FFL, even if that person holds a Concealed Pistol License (CPL).

This changes a previous rule the ATF issued on March 24, 2006, saying that all FFLs could sell to someone with a valid CPL that was issued on or after Nov. 22, 2005, instead of running a NICS background check.
 

AL: Lifetime Permit Bill Moves to Senate Floor

Senate Bill 47, sponsored by Senator Randy Price, creates a new statewide, uniform system to provide lifetime permits for qualified applicants at a cost of $200. For state residents over 65, the fee drops to $150.

Don’t listen to the “fake news” being pushed by opponents of this bill. Most aspects of the current permitting process will not change. The application for the lifetime permit will collect the exact same information as the current permit. Also, like current permits, it will not be an endorsement on your driver’s licenses or visible to anyone outside of Alabama. Individuals interested in obtaining a lifetime permit will apply at their local sheriff’s office for a background check and to fill out the appropriate paperwork.

Key Connecticut legislators are calling for an expansion of the state’s gun seizure law to allow relatives and medical professionals to report someone is too dangerous to possess firearms.

The Democratic co-chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Sen. Gary Winfield and Rep. Steve Stafstrom, have introduced a bill to revamp Connecticut’s 1999 “red flag” law, which was the first in the country to allow judges to order someone’s guns seized upon evidence they are a danger to themselves or others.

Mark Robinson's impassioned defense of gun rights to a North Carolina city council that went viral has catapulted the former furniture factory worker to the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor in less than two years.

Robinson, a first-time candidate, got the most votes among the nine-person field in Tuesday's primary. Unofficial results show his 32.5% total more than doubled second-place finisher Andy Wells and exceeded the 30% threshold to avoid a runoff.

This week the NRA filed legal challenges against Initiative Petition 61 and Initiative Petition 62, which severely restricts and regulates commonly-owned firearms, making it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

NRA previously filed a legal challenge against Initiative Petition 60 on Friday. The legal challenges assert that the ballot titles violate Oregon law (ORS 250.035) by not alerting voters of the changes in the law proposed in the measures.

Members of the Berks County Libertarian Party are not giving up on their call for county commissioners to join a growing trend across the country by declaring the county a Second Amendment sanctuary — vowing to establish a local jurisdiction where gun laws they view as unconstitutional will not be enforced.

Jerry Geleff, chairman of the local Libertarian Party, once again urged the board at its meeting Thursday to pass a resolution proclaiming support for gun ownership rights. He made the same pitch last week with no success.

The legislation in question covers both open and concealed carry. Tennessee’s present law mandates a permit for both types. Tennessee is currently ranked in 13th place according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking of the best states for gun owners. Passing constitutional carry will assuredly go a long way in strengthening the state’s already pro-gun image.
 

Below the Radar: The 3D Printed Gun Safety Act

The title of Deutsch’s legislation makes it seem like it’s about making sure that any 3D printed firearm is safe. The title of the legislation is a lie. The truth is that Congressman Deutsch’s legislation would render the legal cases moot – by imposing a blanket ban on any publication of computer files that would program a 3D printer to make a firearm.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Without freedom there will be no firearms among the people; without firearms among the people there will not long be freedom. Certainly there are examples of countries where the people remain relatively free after the people have been disarmed, but there are no examples of a totalitarian state being created or existing where the people have personal arms. — Neal Knox
