A group of Colorado teachers is taking firearms training to provide an extra layer of security for school students, and already an anti-gun organization is trotting out “scare” rhetoric to argue that this is a wrong move.

According to AOL.com news, the group of 17 instructors is taking an three-day course at a Weld County gun range near Denver. The effort will enable these volunteers – all of whom have concealed carry permits – to be first responders in an emergency.

Back in May, a heavily armed man was arrested trying to bring several guns, knives, body armor, and other handheld weapons into Phoenix Comic Con. His mission: kill former Green Power Ranger Jason David Frank. No, seriously. Luckily, the man was captured before he could cause any harm, but the incident did result in Phoenix Comic Con banning all cosplay weapons and prop weapons from the convention floor and forcing vendors who sell them to wrap them up, where they needed to remain for the duration of the show.

The question of whether armed citizens deter violent crime or exacerbate it has been controversial in academia since at least the mid-1990s—not to mention the debate it continues to fuel in American politics. Conflicting studies have informed polarized lawmakers in the parallel battles over gun regulation. The case for less restrictive gun laws generally boils down to this: Law-abiding citizens have a right to protect themselves and their communities, full stop.

 

Tucker Carlson Uses Facts to Brutally Shut Down Gun Control Advocate Who Favors Gun Confiscation

Fox News host Tucker Carlson took on a gun control advocate on his show Friday over Seattle’s recent gun tax and its apparent failure to quell gun violence, and instead, backfire completely. In 2015, Seattle implemented a “gun violence tax,” which aimed to reduce the amount of gun violence in its city limits. The tax imposed a $25 tax for every firearm purchased and a $.05 tax for every round of ammunition bought within the city limits. The tax has hurt small business owners in the city that own gun stores and has even forced many of them to lay off workers, move to the suburbs or completely shutdown altogether.

CCW Weekend: Carrying A .22 Long Rifle For Self-Defense

Most people think the .22LR is best reserved for plinking or shooting small game. You know, squirrel rifles or mouse guns. Granted, there is the old saw that “a hit with a .22LR is better than a miss with a .44 Magnum” or “any gun is better than none,” both of which are true. It’s also true that the typical carry calibers -.380 through .45ACP – are the preferred calibers for good reason.

California has universal background checks, gun registration requirements, gun confiscation laws, a ten-day waiting period on gun purchases, an “assault weapons” ban, a “good cause” requirement for concealed carry, and a high-profile shooting that garners national attention two or three times a year.
The latest occurred on June 14 in San Francisco, where a UPS employee pulled out a gun during “a company meeting” and opened fire, killing three innocents.

Maybe Seattle City Councilman Tim Burgess thought of the adage that when you tax something you get less of it when in 2015 he sought to fight gun crime by introducing a bill placing a $25 tax on every gun sold and a 5-cent tax on every bullet sold. There is another adage he forgot, and a true one -- more guns mean less crime.

On Sunday, New York County District Attorney Cy Vance suggested Republican efforts to pass national reciprocity for concealed permit holders helps the Islamic State. Speaking about Rep. Richard Hudson’s (R-NC) national reciprocity legislation–HR 38–Vance said, “this bill is supported, I’m sure, by ISIS.” Vance said these things during an interview on AM 970 and the The Hill quoted Vance, saying, “It would be completely legal for a person to bring a loaded gun or guns in New York as long as it was legal to possess them in the person’s home state. A guy from Idaho, where there’s no permitting requirement whatsoever, could carry his gun into New York city loaded, into Times Square.”

This is a big fat grin day for First Gear: We’ve got something to share that we think has almost no chance of going astray in “recommendation” terms. If you spot the weasel words in there, good on you: We concede that we haven’t shot this yet. But so many things look to have been done correctly right out of the blocks, that the likelihood of problems seems to us asymptotically close to zero.

Hogue expanded its lineup of gear bags to include a number of options in the popular flat dark earth finish, giving shooters the opportunity to have gun cases and gear packs that are finished in the color necessary for their success in the field. Hogue took a different approach with their line of gear accessories. Rather than rebranding another company's bag, Hogue launched its own division of textile creators and tries to provide high-quality gear that is proven through design and field testing. Each bag and gun case sold by the company is made in the USA and is checked for quality.
