The 'parks carry' lawsuit against the City of Knoxville, TN, has gained legal standing.

Now, the case can proceed on the merits. Can Knoxville ban people with permits from carrying guns in Chilhowee Park? We think not.

2016 Election: Impact on Firearm Sales and Ownership

With the plethora of commentary and news about the upcoming election next month, I want to make a few minor predictions. Now of course some of you who are more firearms-community-savvy than others will think these are common sense, but for most these thoughts will seem strange.

If you see HRC getting elected, what will happen that day? The prices and availability of firearms will explode. While prices will go up like they have a few times in the past (an AR-15 that goes for $800 will go for over $1500) I think availability will be the hardest hit, with sales skyrocketing and guns flying off shelves.

Texas this year became the eighth state to require state colleges and universities to allow civilians with permits to carry concealed guns in public places. As a result, the University of Texas at Austin - a school that 50 years ago suffered the trauma of the nation's first campus mass killing - must allow guns to be brought onto campus.

Perhaps unintentionally, the Los Angeles Times on Monday explained in simple, matter-of-fact language how anti-rights gun prohibitionists have successfully eroded the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens, laying bare the strategy they will continue to use until the right to keep and bear arms, and the liberty that right represents, have been erased.

Passing on the tradition of protecting the great outdoors has always been the mission of the Almond Rod and Gun Club. On Saturday, the club held its annual Turkey Shoot, which featured a visit from state Sen. Catharine Young (R-Olean). The all-day affair pitted six shooters at a time against one another for the prize of a turkey. The marksman nearest to the center of the bullseye would take home the bird.
 

More Guns on Campuses Won't Make People Safer, Researchers Say

A rise in shootings on college campuses has added a new front in the gun debate, centering on this question: does it hurt, or help, to have more armed people at school? Eight states allow people to carry concealed weapons on the grounds of public colleges and universities, based on the belief that criminals will be less likely to open fire if they know they might be confronted by someone else with a gun. Texas became the latest this year, and there is a growing movement to expand the list.

Pro-gun candidates don’t come any better than Mike Pence.

Pence has fought for our Second Amendment-protected freedoms as a member of Congress, as governor of Indiana and now as a vice-presidential candidate, having been chosen by Donald Trump as his running mate in this year’s race for the White House.

The watchlist, which notifies those who register of newly posted signs, has sent out over 150,000 notices this month alone, founder Russell Jones told Guns.com.

City police and prosecutors have for the last several years preached the need to get "bad guys with guns" off the streets and have announced assorted special efforts to do so, from a "war room" to the recent creation of a new joint unit pairing experienced personnel from the police department and state's attorney's office. Police report they are making far more gun arrests, yet we are poised to exceed 300 homicides for the second year in a row, a rate of killing not seen here since the 1990s.

Some firearms are in short supply at area gun stores ahead of the Nov. 8 election. It wasn’t too long after the last presidential debate that gun enthusiasts started stocking up. “We had guys coming in buying guns, buying a couple of them to put up for down the road. You had guys coming in just buying the ammunition,” said Jeremy.

Unless the city pays to have metal detectors and guards at the entrances, about 50 public buildings will have to allow concealed firearms once a new state law goes into effect. As the date draws closer, city leaders are examining options. “Because of disparate locations that so many of our operations are in, to try to provide security would be an overwhelming and hugely expensive task to accomplish,” said City Manager Tom Markus. “The state has handed us a fairly large challenge in that regard.”

Proposition 63 would enact the toughest gun controls in the United States. But it also would do something else: represent an astonishing historical milestone. And if passed as expected, the ballot measure would illustrate a textbook example of how public policy can be radically changed in a democracy laden with competing checks and balances.
