The Sault Area High School Rifle Team fired in the CMP State Junior Air Rifle Championships in Bay City on Jan. 21.

The match was a position match — comprised of 20 shots in the prone, standing, and kneeling positions.

As it was the CMP State Championship match, it also functions as a qualifier match for the CMP Regional Junior Air Rifle Championships later this summer.

The three Regional Championships from across the country will then function as qualifiers to attend the CMP National Junior Air Rifle Championships.

The top team and the highest shooter not a member of the top team will be receiving invitations to attend the regional.

Bailey Collins paced the local shooters to take third place overall.

The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Lynn Greer, R-Rogersville, would add churches to the state's 2006 Stand Your Ground law. The legislation would allow the use of physical force against a person committing a crime or attempting to do so and using physical force against an employee, volunteer or member of the church or anyone else authorized to be on the church grounds.

The governor spoke at an event in Richmond organized by the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy. Just hours later, however, the Senate passed a bill allowing people to bring guns and knives to churches and other places of worship.

Split along party lines, senators voted 21-18 in favor of SB 372, sponsored by Republican Sen. Ben Chafin of Russell County.

Currently, state law provides that “If any person carry any gun, pistol, bowie knife, dagger or other dangerous weapon, without good and sufficient reason, to a place of worship while a meeting for religious purposes is being held at such place he shall be guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor.”
 

20 years in, shootings have changed schools in unexpected ways

Americans have been living with the reality of school shootings for 20 years.

In that time, educators have hardened schools' defenses with bulletproof entrances, active shooter training, security consultants and a host of sometimes creative, sometimes desperate safety solutions: from teacher-invented door-jamming devices to front-office iris scanners to $120 “ballistic panels” for children’s backpacks.
 

Canada: The case for self defence

If you go onto the internet, the written laws in this country would indicate that no charges should have been laid in any of these cases with respect to self defense actions taken by all the victims of these cases. I’m sure there are many more out there.

What is wrong with this picture? The message from policing agencies are loud and clear. You have no rights when it comes to protecting yourself, your family, or your property. More proof that the criminals have more rights than the victims. We need a “Stand your ground” law like they have in the U.S.
 

IN: Bill to remove handgun licensing gets last-minute changes

In its original form, House Bill 1424 would have done away with the requirement that Indiana residents apply for a license to carry a handgun.

With the amendment, HB 1424 still requires handgun owners to apply for either a five-year or lifetime license. A $40 fee for the lifetime permit, however, is waived.

Additionally, those who apply for the five-year permit would also be granted an exemption from background checks conducted through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) when purchasing guns for the entire five-year period.
 

In Wake Of School Shooting, A Look At How Kids Get Guns

Adams says the mother was in shock.

“The shooter took the gun out of her closet,” Adams said.

Kentucky State Police have not confirmed how the shooter obtained the handgun used at the school. But if Adams’ account proves accurate, it fits a strong pattern.

A 2004 report by the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Education found that over two-thirds of students who used guns in violent acts at school got those guns from their own home or that of a relative.

Warner Robins gun shop owners say recently their customers have expressed concern over their safety.

Mayor Randy Toms made an emotional plea to citizens of his city on Tuesday to look into gun ownership after the third homicide this month.

“I would encourage more citizens to make the effort to receive a carry permit and take any available safety classes on carrying and using weapons,” Mayor Toms said in that Tuesday press conference at the Law Enforcement Center.
 

NY: Extend cutoff for pistol permit certification, but enforce NY SAFE Act

With the deadline fast approaching for thousands of New York pistol permits to be recertified, it makes sense for the state to extend the deadline — but more needs to be done to educate the public about their responsibilities for the future.

A provision of the NY SAFE Act requires anyone who had a pistol permit before the law was established in 2013 to recertify their paperwork within five years. That five-year window closes at the end of this month, and hundreds of thousands of people across the state — including nearly 10,000 in Cayuga County — have yet to recertify.
 

NV: Gun industry gathers just a few miles from Vegas mass shooting

The gun industry is holding its biggest annual trade show this week just a few miles from where a gunman slaughtered 58 concertgoers outside his high-rise Las Vegas hotel room in October using a display case worth of weapons, many of them fitted with bump stocks that enabled them to mimic fully automatic fire.

What exactly will be among the thousands of products crammed into the exhibition spaces at the National Shooting Sports Foundation's SHOT Show convention, running from Tuesday through Friday, will be a bit of a mystery, shielded from the public and, this year, members of the general-interest media.

Indiana Representative Jim Lucas has re-introduced a Constitutional Carry bill in the Indiana legislature.

In 2017, Lucas lead the fight to bring Constitutional Carry to Indiana. He was heavily opposed by the Indiana Media.

He fought back by proposing a bill to require professional journalists to be fingerprinted and submit an application to the state to be approved for a journalist license, in order to exercise their freedom of the press.

So what do we get from the National Rifle Association (the marketing arm of gun manufacturers)? A radical set of policies. They refuse to allow for even the lightest restrictions on ownership. Why not learn from other countries where guns are not freely available to every criminal and the mentally ill?

NRA advocates tell us regulation doesn't work, that it will take a long time to have an effect. That is precisely because of NRA-sponsored, fear-based thinking leading to the present regulatory laxity that has flooded the country with firearms. Just because we have gotten it so wrong for so long doesn't mean we shouldn't be moving toward the better, less-death-filled way.

Dozens of school leaders spoke out Wednesday against proposed legislation that would allow people picking up or dropping off students at schools to have an unloaded gun in their car if the weapon was locked and the owner didn’t leave the vehicle.

A similar bill was rejected last year.

The Crookston School Board is revising its policy on yearbook photos following a controversy that erupted over a student's request that a photo of him holding his gun be published as his senior photo in the high school yearbook.

Board members voted earlier this week to permit photos of the school's trap-shooting team members, posing with their guns, to be published on yearbook pages devoted to the team, amending a Jan. 8 decision to ban all photos that included guns.
 

States Are Still Banning Electric Weapons For Self-Defense

In 2013, the CEO of TASER International estimated that 70% of those purchasing their C2 model Taser were women. It’s no wonder that these small, effective, and non-lethal means of self-defense have proved so popular. But despite their popularity and effectiveness, five states and a handful of localities continue to ban all electric weapons. Regardless of their intent, these laws often have a disproportionate impact on working class women. And the punishment is often severe. In Massachusetts, for instance, anyone caught with an electric weapon can be fined -- or even jailed.

As previously reported, Senate Bill 87 received limited testimony in the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this week and is scheduled for a vote tomorrow. Please contact members of the committee and politely urge them to support SB 87.

Senate Bill 87 would allow law-abiding individuals to carry a firearm for self-defense in any building, structure, park, campus, or other area if those locations choose not to provide adequate security. Places that seek to prohibit the lawful carry of a firearm would need to provide security screening precautions, including the presence of metal detectors.

Colt has a very storied history of producing phenomenal single-action and double-action revolvers. To the dismay of many, over the years they slowly dwindled down that inventory to only the SIngle-Action Army leaving consumers reminiscing of the good ol’ days and wanting more. Well, Colt responded to those sentiments by bringing back the Cobra .38 Special. Now this year at SHOT Show 2018 they have announced a newer iteration of that revolver called the Night Cobra.

The gun lobby and resultant extraordinary proliferation of guns, especially those designed and manufactured for mass killings of citizenry, could not have been anticipated by the framers of the Constitution. It makes no sense to deny that armament corporations and the gun lobby take ownership rights so far beyond the “original intent” it makes the Second Amendment to all intents and purposes unrecognizable.

Kruger Optical debuted its Quad Safe laser reflex sight, capable of being calibrated to correspond with a gun’s choke setting.

The Quad Safe design opts for a standard red dot reticle, alongside four lasers. The lasers project four dots on target to show the boundaries of the shotgun’s pattern. The lasers boast the ability to calibrate to the gun’s choke setting to accurately identify shot pattern sizes. Each individual laser brings it own power source to the table with each laser adjusting independently.

A lone gun control activist showed up to protest the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s SHOT Show and Breitbart News was able to ask him some questions.

On January 24 he was holding a sign with a list of mass attacks on it. The sign listed Columbine, Virginia Tech, Ford Hood, Aurora, San Bernardino, Pulse Nightclub, Las Vegas, and the church in Sutherland Springs, amongst others. It bore the caption, “If not now, when?”

To submit a request, you access the questionnaire on Guns.com, provide contact information and a description of the firearm along with a few photos of it. Carlberg said the whole process could be done with a smartphone.

Within 24 hours of sending the request, a Guns.com appraiser will review the information and respond with an offer via email. You then have 10 days to accept it. If accepted, Guns.com will provide shipping materials and instructions. “There’s a lot less labor for the consumer to try and sell their gun,” said Paul Bahe, Chief Firearms Appraiser at Guns.com.
 

Right-to-carry laws lead to more violent crime: Isn’t that a huge surprise?

One of the most contentious arguments within the larger gun control debate is over whether right-to-carry laws that make it legal for gun owners to carry loaded weapons in public, usually concealed on their person, make people safer. Gun rights advocates argue that packing heat is a prevention against crime and violence, invoking slogans like, "An armed society is a polite society." Gun control proponents, however, argue that a proliferation of loaded weapons is bound to lead to more violence, if only because people have easier access to the means to harm others.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero (42B.C)
