AK: Trapshooting’s instant gratification hooked Anchorage teen, who now eyes long-term goals

When a trapshooter hits his mark, everyone watching knows it. The clay target sailing through the air shatters into tiny pieces and creates a burst of colored smoke that lingers in the sky.

The first time 16-year-old Grayson Davey of Anchorage triggered those fireworks, he knew he'd found his sport.

It happened when he was an 11-year-old attending a shooting camp at Rabbit Creek Shooting Park. Kids were exposed to a variety of shooting sports and firearms — bow-and-arrows, .22s, big-game hunting rifles — before finishing on a trap range, where they were shown how to use shotguns.

"They had us shoot a couple of birds," Davey said, "and as soon as the first bird came out I shot it and big orange fireworks came out and I thought...
 

Hypocrite Julianne Moore Says Gun Control Not A Second Amendment Issue

Last week, Moore herself appeared on “The View” and her hypocrisy immediately began spewing forth. She insisted that her pet topic of gun control isn’t a Second Amendment issue, but instead a “safety issue.” Trying to separate guns from the Second Amendment seems to be the only way liberal elites think they can win this battle—but America isn’t biting. We suggest instead that she do a second reading of the Constitution and make special note of the last phrase, “shall not be infringed.”

Ed.: We suggest the NRA also make special note of the last phrase, since they lost their damn mind.

This is just another example of why the Second Amendment is so important to millions of gun owners in America. These types of written attacks spewed via social media are often dismissed as the work of keyboard warriors, and most of the time that is exactly what they are. But the accepted deployment of abuse against conservatives, Republicans, Second Amendment supporters and other free thinkers is a precursor to actual physical violence. Look no further than the disgusting mayhem of Antifa riots for proof that these Twitter attacks are the seeds of destructive behavior. These so-called protests often begin with disparaging announcements on Twitter. Then as the agitators gather, the fisticuffs begin.

In the same debate, he stated: “I’m very proud to have the endorsement of the NRA and it was the earliest endorsement they’ve ever given to anybody who ran for president…. We are going to appoint justices that will feel very strongly about the second amendment.”[34] Justice Eid – who has been a member of the Federalist Society since 1988,[35] and who served as a faculty advisor to the University of Colorado law school Federalist Society chapter[36] – must have passed these litmus tests.
 

Wandering in the wilderness of the gun debate

I’m perfectly at ease around these pieces of hardware. I’m not the least bit fascinated by them, and they hold no special mystique for me. But I’m comfortable with guns.

What I’m uncomfortable with is the modern gun debate. So many parts of it give me the creeps. And every time it flares up — which is what usually occurs after a terrible act of violence with a high body count — I find myself wondering what happened to our humanity. Do we really have more regard for these inanimate pieces of metal than we do our fellow human beings?

Whether you like it or not, the National Rifle Association is absolutely our most important defender of our constitutional right to arms, and you need to be a member.

Many of us are angry with the NRA for the foolish statement put out by Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox in response to the atrocity in Las Vegas, and others are angry with me for publicly criticizing that foolish statement, and calling on the NRA Board of Directors to repudiate it.

New York regulators launched an investigation into the National Rifle Association’s role in the self-defense insurance program that bears its name.

With the rise of white supremacists and neo-nazis, those on the fringes can feel helpless and unsure of what to do.

Some LGBT groups have decided to change that and are now training themselves how to shoot guns.

The Trigger Warning Queer and Trans Gun Club came about back in January. The club was started to help LGBT people take up arms.
 

CA: Protesters need safe spaces to demonstrate, not the right to carry tiki torches and glass bottles

Hoping to head off the violence that’s arisen at protests in Charlottesville, Berkeley and other cities, the Los Angeles City Council is drafting a long list of items that would be banned from rallies, demonstrations and public assemblies.

The council’s move, however, has triggered a protest of its own — from some civil liberties groups. They argue that preventing people from taking potential weapons to a protest that they would be legally entitled to bring to other events may be unlawful, because it would strip rights from people engaged in a constitutionally protected activity.

Since When Did Jesus Get Connected to Guns?

Since when did the gospel become associated with guns? Since when did the Christian faith become linked to the right to bear arms?

Lest I be misunderstood, this article is not about gun control, nor is it about the Second Amendment.

I am not asking whether Christians should serve in the military and I am not questioning our right to defend ourselves.

I’m simply asking why conservative Christianity – in particular, American evangelical Christianity – is so strongly linked with a passion for guns. There’s certainly no scriptural connection to be made.

“If the Due Process Clause applies to J.D. [Jane Doe] with full force, there will be no reason she cannot donate to political campaigns, despite U.S.C 3-121’s prohibiting on contributions to nonresident foreign nationals inasmuch as freedom of political expression is plainly fundamental to our system of ordered liberty,” wrote this judge.

“I see no reason she may not possess a firearm, notwithstanding 18 U.S.C. 922 (g)(5)’s prohibition on doing so while ‘illegally or unlawfully in the United States,’ inasmuch as ‘the Second Amendment conferred on individual right to keep and bear arms,’ she wrote.

The United States Government Accountability Office recently released a report where it looked at programs related to gun access and the effect of those programs.

In reviewing four peer-reviewed academic research studies, the report said “behavioral skills training did not instill consistent safe firearm habits in young children.”

Beth Joslin Roth with the Safe Tennessee Project said the study shows that programs, like the NRA’s Eddie the Eagle, do not deter children from handling firearms.

In a nation where mass shootings can happen anywhere from a night club to a country music festival, Daylan Andrews feels it is more important than ever to stand for, as he calls it, “an equilibrium of safety.”

Andrews is a lifelong Wichitan, Butler County Community College graduate and senior at Wichita State seeking a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences. Andrews is also one of many students at Wichita State who carry a concealed firearm and feels that it is a personal right to be able to protect himself and those around him.

Sen. Chris Murphy on Wednesday reintroduced a background-check gun bill he’s been trying to make law since a gunman killed 20 first graders and six educators in Newtown at the end of 2012.

Nearly five years later, Congress has yet to approve a substantive gun control measure, even the least controversial of those gun control advocates have proposed – a bill that would expand FBI background checks of gun buyers.

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore’s response to the mass shooting in Las Vegas was to propose rewriting the Second Amendment, providing a laundry list of statistics to support his arguments for increased gun control.

Moore suggested his "proposed 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution" in an Oct. 4, 2017, Facebook post, three days after a gunman killed 58 and wounded 489 in a massacre at a Las Vegas country music festival.
 

PA: Before another Vegas, ban high-capacity magazines

In Jan. 17, 1989, a gunman armed with a semi-automatic rifle fired more than 100 rounds at an elementary school in Stockton, Calif., killing five children and wounding 30 people. President George H.W. Bush responded by stopping the import of dozens of models of semi-automatic rifles and proposing a ban on the sale of magazines holding more than 15 rounds. The latter failed. But in 1994, Congress approved a limit of 10 rounds on magazine capacity.

Today, the nation is contemplating a massacre with a higher death toll. On Oct. 1, a gunman in a high-rise Las Vegas hotel killed more than 50 people and wounded hundreds.
 

If You Are Black and Pro-Gun, an Activist is Hard to Find

Seems like the left is ready to be involved in activism for the environment, for Hillary Clinton, and for black lives that meet their criteria for mattering. But try being a black man who is pro-gun and in need of some activism and the left is strangely quiet.

I learned this the hard way after using a gun for self-defense and finding myself $50,000 in the hole due to legal fees.

A Hemet police program to fast-track the processing of concealed handgun permits began today under the direction of Chief Dave Brown, who said it was important to give residents a “fair and timely” alternative to a Riverside County sheriff’s program in which permits can take well over a year to process.

The Hemet Police Department’s “Expedited Carry Concealed Weapon License Program” will enable residents to apply for a CCW permit and be approved or denied within four months.

Agency spokesman Lt. Glen Brock said research had revealed that residents filing CCW applications with the sheriff’s department were waiting between 18 and 22 months before they received a response as to the status of their request.
