Through my own experience, I’ve learned guns are not a curse, but a blessing. As we start 2017, I hope more Americans will take the time to become educated about the Second Amendment and the proper, lawful use of firearms.

Savage Arms entered the AR market with a bang, announcing four new models to kick off the company's first entry into the world of modern sporting rifles. Until 2017, Savage's line of centerfire guns was limited to bolt-action platforms. Over the past few years, the company has been introducing a number of semi-automatic rifles to its rimfire lines, such as the popular A17 and A22. However, a notable exception in the company's lineup was the absence of AR-style rifles.

A hotly contested legislative session in 2015 led to two controversial gun laws: One that allows for the open carry of handguns and another that permits the concealed carry of handguns on Texas college campuses. Now, one lawmaker is looking toward the upcoming legislative session with the hope to pass a bill that would give all Texans the right to openly carry a firearm — with or without a permit.

The video sheds light on the unusual use of force, one that the Iowa Department of Public Safety had largely kept secret since it happened 18 months ago.

The Fort Hall Indian Reservation is mourning the death of a tribal member who was apparently shot dead by a relative on New Year's Day. Tribal authorities and the FBI have released little information about the fatal shooting of Heath “Petey” Dixey, 40, at his Cemetery Road residence on the reservation. But Fort Hall Police Chief Pat Teton said the shooting could be a case of self-defense. The family member who apparently killed Dixey was treated and released at Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello after the shooting and then taken into police custody, questioned and released.

After a shooter killed 50 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando last June, Obama and lawmakers across the nation called for stricter gun laws.

In the past several months, curbside stabbings in Jerusalem, slashings in New York and an edged-weapon assault injuring eight at a shopping mall in Minnesota are clear examples of a disturbing trend of knife attacks against civilians. Although we may all be potential victims of physical violence, few of us are fully equipped to handle such assaults.

State lawmakers will have their first chance to discuss a controversial measure that would expand how and where Florida’s more than 1.67 million concealed-weapons license holders can carry handguns. The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Greg Steube, is scheduled Jan. 10 to take up the measure (SB 140), which would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to openly carry handguns in public and also would allow them to be armed on college and university campuses.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has been chipping away at the Second Amendment for years, but when he takes office, President Donald Trump can limit the ramifications of their decisions–actually reversing them in some instances–by appointing the pro-Second Amendment, pro-Constitution justice he pledged to appoint while running for office.

Republican Rep. Richard Hudson (N.C.) on Tuesday introduced a bill that would require states to recognize each other’s gun carry permits. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 would address the patchwork nature of the country’s gun carry laws. Currently, each state decides which other states’ gun carry permits it will recognize. Some states recognize all other states’ permits, other states recognize no other states’ permits, and many fall somewhere in between.

A boom in consumer drone sales has spawned a counter-industry of start-ups aiming to stop drones flying where they shouldn't, by disabling them or knocking them out of the sky. Dozens of start-up firms are developing techniques - from deploying birds of prey to firing gas through a bazooka - to take on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that are being used to smuggle drugs, drop bombs, spy on enemy lines or buzz public spaces.

Taylor County will continue to ban firearms from its main courthouse a year after open carry went into effect, following in the footsteps of Waller County, said County Judge Downing Bolls on Tuesday. Like Waller County, Taylor County posted signs on all courthouse entrances, citing a 2003 law that allows the prohibition of firearms "on the premises of any government court or offices utilized by the court." Taylor County posted the signs right before the open carry law went into effect Jan. 1, 2016.

Every year in the U.S., more than 30,000 people die from things related to guns. That puts guns ahead of HIV, Parkinson's disease, malnutrition, hypertension, intestinal infection, peptic ulcer, anemia, viral hepatitis, biliary tract disease, atherosclerosis and fires. Yet, the funding for research on gun violence lags far behind other leading causes of death, according to a study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.



 

Range Report: Smith & Wesson’s New M&P M2.0 Pistols

It’s been a decade since Smith & Wesson launched the original M&P semi-automatic pistols. While there have been some incremental variations and new models since then, there’s hasn’t been a major overhaul to the basic design – until now. With the M2.0 series, the Smith & Wesson folks have made welcome improvements to the M&P line. I got my hands on several pre-launch models, two different 9mms, and a .40 S&W, and had the opportunity to test them out before market launch. The .45 versions are being announced at the same time, and I have one of those on the way, too, but I’ll have to report on that one at a later date.



 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.— Benjamin Franklin Historical Review of Pennsylvania. [Note: This sentence was often quoted in the Revolutionary period. It occurs even so early as November, 1755, in an answer by the Assembly of Pennsylvania to the Governor, and forms the motto of Franklin's "Historical Review," 1759, appearing also in the body of the work. — Frothingham: Rise of the Republic of the United States, p. 413. ]
