Walla Walla High School’s rifle teams kicked off their traveling season this weekend by competing in a pair of rifle matches in Washington and Oregon.

On Saturday, 94 shooters from 16 Washington and Oregon high schools met in LaPine, Ore., to compete in a Cascade Mountain League JROTC Drill Meet.

Fifteen rifle teams competed for trophies and medals in the one day event in central Oregon, which marks the first JROTC drill and rifle competition of the league’s regular season.

The season is comprised of four regular season competitions and a league championship in Spokane in March.

A man in Britain who killed his heavily pregnant ex-wife in a deadly crossbow attack last year was found guilty of murder.

It was a productive weekend for Oak Harbor’s Lauren Crossley and the Sabertooth Shooting Squad.

Crossley signed a letter of intent to shoot for Division I North Carolina State University Friday, Nov. 15, and the next day she helped the Sabertooth Shooting Squad precision team win the Washington State Civilian Marksmanship Program Three Position Air Rifle Championships by taking first in the individual standings.

The state championship was staged in three locations (Puyallup, Vancouver and Spokane), and scores were compared to determine the winner.

Crossley wasn’t the only star to shine bright for the Sabertooth Shooting Squad coached by Dave Goodman.
 

MI: Michigan hunters on track to donate record amount of venison to feed hungry families

A successful firearms deer season for some Michigan hunters is leading to another kind of success this fall: A potentially record-setting amount of donations of both venison and money to help feed families in need.

With less than a week left in firearms deer season, estimates suggest that hunters are on track to donate more than $100,000 and 58,000 pounds of venison -- translating to some 232,000 meals -- to Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger. The nonprofit, all-volunteer program seeks to prevent hunger by facilitating meat distribution between deer hunters, meat processors, food pantries and homeless shelters.
 

FL: National Rifle Association Lawsuit Challenging Florida's Age Restrictions for Gun Purchases Back On

federal judge on Wednesday allowed the National Rifle Association (NRA) to proceed with a lawsuit challenging Florida's new minimum-age gun purchase rules after the organization abandoned its attempt to include anonymous plaintiffs.

U.S. District Court Judge Mark Walker put the case on hold last year until an appellate court was set to weigh in about the propriety of using anonymous plaintiffs. In mid-November, the NRA signaled a desire to pursue a more expedient avenue, asking the court of appeals to toss the group's objection while it filed a new complaint with a named plaintiff.

Dianna Muller lost count of how many times she responded to chillingly desperate calls for help during her 22 years as a police officer in Tulsa, Okla. The crime scenes she worked taught her that people need their right to bear arms. “I don’t wish for anyone to be defenseless,” Muller told the NRA. “I would like for everyone to be prepared to be their own first responder.”

This is a message she’s been bringing to the nation’s capital.

They said that they had determined that they did not have a reasonable likelihood of successfully prosecuting a murder charge against Chaney.

Take a minute the next time you are downtown or at the shopping mall, and notice how close people stand to each other when they are talking. We even allow total strangers to stand that close to use during a conversation. Usually, there is only a couple of feet distance between two people. Now imagine what happens when that conversation turns into a criminal attack.

Nowhere was this more evident than earlier this year when anti-gun advocates and members of Congress worked to pass two anti-gun bills through the U.S. House of Representatives. That fight involved what gun-control supporters frequently claim is the most “reasonable” of all gun-control laws—H.R. 8, the so-called “universal” background check bill.

However, as we pointed out at the time, there was nothing reasonable about a bill that would turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals for harmless conduct, while doing nothing to stop violent criminals who actually are responsible for the crimes often used to justify such laws.

Gloucester County could be the next county in Virginia to pass a resolution to defend its gun rights.

Chair of the Board of Supervisors Ashley Chriscoe said the board is getting tons of feedback from people who live in the county.

A historic section of Route 66 runs through western New Mexico’s Cibola County. That’s been this county’s claim to fame for nearly a century.

However, over the past year, Cibola has become known for something else. In January, County Sheriff Tony Mace came up with the idea to make Cibola County a "Second Amendment Sanctuary." The people in Cibola voted on the resolution and it passed.

Giles County is now a 2A Sanctuary!

Just got this from member Dale S. Congratulations Giles County residents!

“The Giles County Board of Supervisors just voted unanimously in a packed standing room only meeting to declare Giles County a 2A Sanctuary!!!”

Ladies and gentlemen, the ripple in the water near the beach is belying the tsunami that is coming! The massive giant, that is Virginia's gun owners, is awake and not in a good mood.
 

Strong Firearms Preemption Laws are More Important Than Ever

In recent weeks, gun owners have been given two prime examples of just how important strong firearms preemption laws are to the vibrant exercise of Second Amendment rights.

On October 22, the Montana Supreme Court struck down a Missoula ordinance that purported to restrict city residents’ ability to transfer firearms. On October 29, Allegheny County Common Pleas Senior Judge Joseph M. James struck down a raft of Pittsburgh ordinances that purported to regulate the use of firearms in public places within the city and provide for the confiscation of firearms without due process. In both instances, the tribunals pointed to the state firearms preemption statute as precluding the locality’s anti-gun efforts.
 

The Six Most-Shocking Things a President Elizabeth Warren Would Do to Your Gun Rights

Enter Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) “Protecting Our Communities from Gun Violence” plan. As this was being written, this was one of 59 plans she had on her website—Warren certainly does have a plan designed to control every facet of your life.

As Warren includes just about every gun-control infringement on your rights now being talked about on the left in her plan, this list of her most-egregious duplicities related to your right to keep and bear arms is admittedly subjective, but it is a taste of all she would like to do.

The Race threw a dart at a map and it sent us to Hardin, Montana – population: 3,800.

We stopped in the Lariat Country Kitchen, where it didn’t take long to find strong opinions on gun laws.

“I have quite a few guns and I support the Second Amendment ya know, wholly,” said Ron Nedens, the first person we approached. “I would not readily give up my guns for anything.”
 

VA: Meet an NRA Virginia mom who is telling voters to ‘watch out’ for Bloomberg’s tricks in 2020

Suburban women are expected to play a pivotal role in the 2020 elections, which is why a lot of political groups are attempting to appeal to them. One of Bloomberg’s groups, Moms Demand Action, is styled to fool voters into thinking their extreme beliefs are representative of all suburban moms. And earlier this month in Virginia, this billionaire-funded group spent an enormous amount of money to flip a few seats and win a thin, anti-gun majority in the state legislature. Pro-gun suburban women in Virginia were outraged by the misleading campaign. We spoke with one, NRA member Megan Boland, who says the tactics employed by anti-gun groups in Virginia should serve as a cautionary tale to pro-gun suburban women across the country.
