Congressional Republicans are trying to change federal guns regulations to make buying a silencer, or suppressor, easier. But critics don’t agree with the argument that the proposed legislation is a safety measure to prevent hearing injuries. The Hearing Protection Act, introduced earlier this week in the GOP-controlled House and Senate, if passed, would still require a background check to buy a silencer, which muffles or suppresses more than silences the sound of a shot.

Rep. Jay Lawrence has a plan for ridding your yard of pesky rats and snakes: Fire away! House Bill 2022 would lift a ban against firing a weapon within city limits to accommodate those who want to eliminate the critters, as long as the appropriate rat shot or snake shot is used. The idea came from a constituent in his Scottsdale/Fountain Hills district, Lawrence, R-Scottsdale, said. And who hasn't been bothered — or frightened — to the point of wanting to blast said critter to oblivion?

Gun-friendly New Hampshire is back in the spotlight after a lawmaker dropped a loaded firearm this week in a House hearing on a kindergarten bill. But lawmakers packing guns on statehouse grounds — and occasionally handling them recklessly — isn’t unique to the “Live Free or Die” state. At least 19 states, from Kansas to Texas to Idaho, allow legislators to carry guns in parts of or the entire capitol. In a handful of others that prohibit it, such as Oklahoma, lawmakers sometimes bypass security measures in order to carry concealed firearms.
