Jasmine Kobayashi of Dimond, who earlier this season broke the Cook Inlet Conference riflery record, was perfect in two rounds of prone shooting Saturday to win the Dimond A1 Shoot Off.

Kobayashi scored 582 out of a possible 600 to win the meet, which pits the top boy and top girl from each of the CIC's eight high schools for shoulder-to-shoulder competition.

Davis Schwarz of South registered a 574 for the day's second best score. The third highest score came from Chugiak's C.J. Hatt, whose 569 was the best score among boys.

In a regular-season dual meet earlier this season, Kobayashi fired a 297 to break the old CIC record, held by multiple shooters, by one point.

Did they know how many rounds a gunman fired into First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs? Did they know how many little boys and girls he killed? Did they know there was a second violent church attack that same day in Fresno, Calif.?

A gun enthusiast from southern California says he is taking a step to help destroy gun violence. One of Chad Vachter’s prized possessions was a thousand-dollar AR-15 assault rifle. After seeing the growing number of mass shootings in the country, Vachter said he was fed up and decided to take a hammer to his gun, destroying it. “I can’t do it,” he said. “I can’t have something in my house that so easily could become a part of another situation like that, and I’m not going to be desensitized to it. I refuse to.”
 

The Gun Control Legislation That Even Republicans Like

Republicans and Democrats have found gun legislation both sides agree on. But that doesn’t mean it will pass. In the wake of mass shootings in Nevada, Texas and California, Democratic Senator Chris Murphy, an outspoken advocate of gun control, introduced a bill to strengthen the federal background check system for gun sales. Debates over gun control on Capitol Hill nearly always give way to inaction in the face of Republican opposition. But Democrats aren’t alone in supporting this new legislation: It is also backed by Republican Senators John Cornyn, the second highest-ranking Republican in the Senate, Orrin Hatch, Tim Scott and Dean Heller.

It was a very young deer. On a Friday a few weeks back, my wife and I stopped at Prairie View Cemetery to take some paperwork into the office. While my wife was doing that, Don, our sexton, came over and told me that there was an injured deer lying next to some grave stones.

 

IN: Capitol Staff has Limits on Firearms

Hundreds of legislative staffers can now carry handguns in the Indiana Statehouse and adjacent state office buildings – but the newfound freedom isn't without limitation. Lawmakers this year passed a law allowing those who work in the House, Senate, Legislative Services Agency and Lobby Registration Commission to bring guns to work if they have a valid Indiana permit. That covers more than 475 employees. “It's a constitutional right. I think everyone's right to protection should be recognized in the Statehouse,” said Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour – one of the authors of Senate Enrolled Act 43. “Legislators aren't any different than the people. Our lives are no more important.”
 

Movement on NICS ‘Fix’ Marred by Muzzleloader Smear?

While a bipartisan group of Capitol Hill senators has reportedly reached an accord on legislation that would improve the National Instant Check System (NICS), their work might be offset by a report from a gun control group headed by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords that takes a swipe at muzzleloaders.

The New York Times is reporting that the Senate group, headed by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), has reached a “modest” but significant compromise on the so-called “Fix NICS Act.” The measure is even getting a nod from the National Rifle Association’s chief lobbyist, Chris Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action.

Okaloosa County authorities have filed a murder charge against a Shalimar woman who they said built a brick wall in her closet to hide her husband's body. Sheriff's investigators said Barbara Wozniak, 65, told her adult children she killed her husband Alfred in self-defense last Friday after he tried to choke her. While serving a search warrant at her home, deputies said they found his body wrapped in a tarp and duct taped behind a fabricated brick wall inside a closet.

About 40 firearms were stolen from Tannerman’s Trading Company LLC Friday, according to the Eastern Panhandle Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force and area media sources. “Our main concern is to get our customers’ guns back,” said owner Travis Bishop. “At this point, we don’t know the exact cost, but some of the guns are worth $2,000 a piece, so if you add it up, it’s pretty substantial."

In light of the 317 mass shootings this year, the Michigan Senate approved a bill that would allow Concealed Pistol Licensers to carry in traditionally gun-free zones such as churches or schools. If passed in the Michigan House of Representatives, those with CPLs could undergo eight additional hours of training to receive the certification allowing them to carry in the zones. East Lansing residents are split on the issue.

Gabby Giffords is still an optimist. The former Arizona congresswoman had a cloak room named after her this week for her bravery in fighting gun violence—the same week a school in her neighboring state California faced a mass shooting that killed five people and injured several more. One week after a mass shooting in a Texas church killed 4 percent of a town’s population. One month after the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history left Las Vegas concertgoers reeling.

Recently one of my Facebook friends posted a photo of a dead deer in the back of pickup truck at a stoplight with a caption that said something like her appetite was effectively suppressed for the day. Her post didn’t bother me. Some people can’t stomach the sight of a dead animal – particularly a fuzzy warm deer – and some just don’t like the taste of venison. To each their own.
 

Virginia is Still the Go-to State for Criminals Shopping for Illegal Guns

Virginia's status as the go-to state for criminals shopping for illegal guns has been reaffirmed once again. An investigation by Post reporters painstakingly chronicled the swift and terrible path of destruction wrought by one gun sold in Virginia on the streets of the District. Within a week of its purchase from a Manassas gun shop, the Glock 17 (serial number CME244) was used in a firefight in Southwest. It then changed hands several times. The sobering tally: a dozen criminal acts in a dozen weeks.

We think it’s accurate to say that gun guys—and ladies—are often camera nuts as well. And if you’re of a certain, shall we say, vintage, the Nikon F1 was the camera to which most of us aspired. Ok, ok—outright coveted. Not only was it a superb artistic tool, but also one tough piece of equipment—beloved of serious pros who couldn’t have their gear folding in the wet, cold, heat or just about anything else. Come to think of it, that’s a fine pedigree for shooting optics as well.

A LaPorte County judge has scheduled a hearing to settle an animal welfare group's push to stop rifle-hunting on public land. On Thursday, the Center for Wildlife Ethics filed court documents asking the LaPorte Circuit Court to toss an emergency rule issued by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources that would allow rifle-hunting in state and federal forests. The group also requested a temporary restraining order to halt rifle-hunting on these lands immediately until a ruling could be made.

Does sitting in a deer stand in northern Wisconsin, rifle in hand, take priority over watching a noon home game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Green Bay Packers? Maybe it does for some hunters. “If the game is at noon, we’ll see hunters rolling in here about 11 a.m.,” said Bob vanDoorn, who owns Doorn’s Inn with his wife Amanda. “Some stay for the entire game; a few might leave at halftime, depending on the game and whether it’s a noon or 3:25 p.m. kickoff.”
