MI: Detroit City Council moves ahead with proposing gun-free zones, if state agrees
Submitted by: Corey Salo

Detroit City Councilmember Mary Waters has a message for state lawmakers: Change existing gun laws to allow cities to establish gun-free zones.

As a result of increased violence in and around downtown Detroit, Waters proposed the establishment of gun-free zones by calling on state lawmakers to expeditiously approve changes to current gun laws, which council members approved on Tuesday.

Waters' proposed resolution was the first of two meant to stem gun violence that council voted on Tuesday. The Michigan Firearm and Ammunition Act 319 of 1990 prohibits cities from establishing gun-free zones in public spaces and council members are urging state legislators to repeal the law.

Two rulings on gun rights this month show how a year-old Supreme Court ruling is forcing the lower federal courts to reckon with some of the more uncomfortable aspects of early American history. In one case, a federal judge in West Virginia ruled that gun-ownership bans for people with mental illnesses are constitutional. In the other, a federal judge in Virginia struck down a law that barred under-21-year-olds from buying handguns.

The Illinois Supreme Court is now deciding whether the state’s recently enacted assault weapons ban violates certain provisions of the Illinois Constitution. In March, a circuit court judge in Macon County sided with a group of plaintiffs led by state Rep. Dan Caulkins, R-Decatur, and declared the law unconstitutional. The state appealed directly to the Supreme Court, which put a hold on the Macon County decision and put the case on an expedited schedule.

Former President Barack Obama slammed America’s lack of gun control in a recent interview with CBS, claiming that the U.S. should respond to mass shootings by implementing gun laws like Australia, where there is no legal right to own a firearm. When asked why America can’t emulate Australian gun control, Obama made no mention of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing the right to bear arms, he merely claimed that gun rights have become an "ideological" and "partisan issue."

Do you like heavy metal? Are you a Harley Davidson kind of person? Look at the Ronin Operator by Springfield Armory. It is a good-looking, full-sized 1911 pistol with nice features far above a standard 1911. The two-tone slide and receiver combo are striking. Custom features are abundant on this mid-priced gem. Stay tuned with me as I view and shoot this beauty today in Area 51, Arizona.

A major key to firearm ownership is cleaning and maintaining the gun to ensure function and longevity. As the 1911 is one of the most common handguns in the world, it is always a great refresher to see how to disassemble the frame, barrel, and slide to oil and clean the pistol.

The eXergy, or XRG, line of bullets were created by Sellier & Bellot as an alternative to lead ammo without losing any performance or stopping power. These are hollow point bullets capped with aluminum to make sure they retain their shape in the air, while expanding rapidly upon impact with a target. This company did extensive testing while creating these bullets, and they can be considered a “premium” type of hunting ammunition due to the way they are made, the excellent performance and the ability to take down even the largest game animals at long range.

#8.5 Lead Shot Ammo: #8.5 Lead Shot Explained

If you know your shotgun ammo, you know exactly what #8.5 lead shot is for – sporting clays or 16-yard traps. What makes this round so perfect for these types of shooting? Twice as many pellets per shot than a #6 shot and more range and power than a #9 shot. You’re looking at 500 to 600 pellets with an effective range of about 25 to 30 yards. This particular shot is dead center in the “allowed shot size” for competitive target, skeet and clay pigeon shooting.
