Allen went to the home of Steven Ferren in Judsonia on July 30 and fired his gun at him, Ferren reportedly told police. Ferren said he retaliated against Allen, who was on his "personal property," by firing back in self-defense.

"During the scene investigation, there was evidence recovered to support the fact that there was an exchange of gunfire from two different calibers of weapons," White County Sheriff's Office Detective Jeremy Bokker wrote in the affidavit.

The Sportsman’s Shop, a small town business that has been in operation since 1954, says it can no longer advertise products like American flags or outdoor clothing on Facebook because its Facebook page promotes the sales of guns, and includes links that lead to the same.

Regarding Patricia Puterbaugh’s Nov. 18 letter “Let’s simplify discussion on right to bear arms” and many similar letters from the past: For the umpteenth time, machine guns have been illegal for the general public to own since the 1934 National Firearms Act. Furthermore, the AR-15 (civilian version of the military M-16) and civilian versions of the AK-47 are not machine guns. They are semiautomatic guns that fire one shot per trigger pull. Machine guns are fully automatic guns that fire multiple shots per trigger pull.

Nathan Price says his concealed gun doesn’t make him feel safer in church.

The gun does make him feel more prepared should something happen.

“I’m a big believer that violence can happen anywhere at anytime,” said Price, a former Marine and firearms trainer. “If you’re not carrying a firearm, you’re not going to be able to engage anyone causing harm around you.”

The Wichita Eagle reports that Price is one of an unknown number of Kansans who carry a gun in church. After a man fatally shot 26 people in Sutherland Springs’ First Baptist Church earlier this month, some pastors and congregants across the nation have renewed calls to carry.

A store clerk shot an armed robber at a Douglasville, Ga., Chevron gas station.

Located at 6590 E. Broad St./Bankhead Highway, the store clerk called 911 and told the dispatcher that the suspect pointed a handgun at him. The store clerk retrieved his own gun and shot the suspect inside the convenience store.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found the armed robbery suspect on the ground in front of the store, suffering from a single gunshot wound.

Regular customer, Darrell Haley, said he worried about the clerk he sees every day, with a smile, from behind the counter.
 

NY: Gun insurance may help curb shootings

I’m for gun ownership, but am sickened by the acceleration in the scope of mass killing made possible by the assault-style military weapons used most recently. Florida, Nevada and Connecticut have all had records set for the biggest mass killing in state history since 2012 — all with military-style assault rifles. But gun legislation has remained elusive. So let’s leave the Second Amendment alone and make gun violence a free-market issue. Let economic incentives, or disincentives, regulate gun ownership by requiring firearm insurance.
 

How to Handle Thanksgiving With Your Crazy Relatives

Guns. This can be an emotional subject. Most liberals have never even handled a gun, let alone fired one, and this often produces unreasoning fear. That’s just human nature: we’re afraid of what we don’t know. The best way to handle this is by showing rather than telling. Don’t push too hard, but offer to introduce her to some of your shooting buddies. Show her one of your hunting rifles and explain how it works. Appeal to her sense of “tolerance” by offering to take her down to the range to fire a few rounds. If she’s going to oppose guns, isn’t it fair that she should know a little more about them?
 

The Mathematics of Violent Revolution (And How They Apply to the 2nd Amendment)

At an annual chance of 0.8% per year, the USA has a 55% chance of a major violent revolution in any given 100 year span. At an annual chance of 0.5% per year, we have a 39% chance of a major violent revolution in a given 100 year span. On our soil. That’s just math.

These things are much worse than floods, and the people who suffer during them are largely not the elites running the show, they’re the people at the ground level, whether they’re participating in the revolution or not.

Syria is sitting at almost half a million dead and around ten million displaced into Europe and that revolution is still only about half-cooked.

Dear Doctor: Out of the blue, my new primary care doctor asked me if I owned a gun. Was it appropriate, or even legal, for her to ask that?

Dear Reader: I can understand why you were surprised. Doctors generally try to avoid wading into political discussions, which, as we know, the topic of guns has become. Lately, though, many have been reassessing that arms-length stance and focusing on guns as a public health issue.

The failure enabled him to buy weapons, purchases his domestic violence conviction should have barred.

Sessions on Wednesday directed the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to determine if other government agencies are failing to report information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. He also wants a report detailing the number of times the agencies investigate and prosecute people for lying on their gun-purchase applications and a closer look at the format of the application itself.

The NRA is America’s most prolific proponent and provider of firearm safety and education, period.

Despite the cries of the national news media, we are much more than political lobbyists. Gun safety and training is—and will always be—at our core.

Our training programs date all the way back to the founding of the NRA in 1871 … and will continue to carry the NRA well into the future.
 

UT: If only gun deaths were treated like opioid deaths

Why is the number familiar? Because it is the same as the number of gun-related deaths that occur daily in the country. The opioid situation has been labeled a national crisis. Which it is and which our political establishment will undoubtedly do something about.

On the other hand, hand-gun deaths have been taken as an acceptable fact of life for decades. The president has appeared before the NRA to declare his firm support for guns. Most all our Utah Republican politicians are on the same page. The Second Amendment has been construed as allowing the vast gun industry to develop and deploy every conceivable kind of weapon.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo says Stephen Paddock fired over 1,100 rounds when he opened fire on concert-goers October 1.

Moreover, Lombardo said law enforcement discovered over 4,000 additional, unused rounds in Paddock’s suite at Mandalay Bay.

According to the Associated Press, Lombardo’s office is working alongside the FBI in examining ballistic information tied to the concert attack in which Paddock killed 58 and wounded more than 500.

Lombardo said authorities still “have not determined Paddock’s motive or why he stopped shooting.” For this reason, and others, the public continues to ask questions regarding the heinous crime. Afterall, the official timeline of the shooting has changed more than once.

A case brought by families of victims of the Sandy Hook school shootings has the potential to alter the gun debate in America. But even with a victory, creative responses still need to be found for a gun-violence epidemic that has killed more Americans since 1970 than all of our wars combined.

On Dec. 14, 2012, in Newtown, Conn., Adam Lanza killed 20 schoolchildren and six staff members at an elementary school.

Under the bills, private property owners, colleges and universities could still ban guns and schools could prohibit teachers and staff from carrying guns. It would also close a loophole under which concealed pistol license holders could bring guns into schools and other no-carry zones, provided they carried the guns openly.

The bills are supported by groups such as the National Rifle Association and the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners.

Among those speaking against the bills were representatives of the Michigan Association of School Boards, the Michigan Education Association and Moms Demand Action.

Also opposed was the Michigan Open Carry group, because of the new restrictions on open-carry of firearms.

The change was decided under the Obama administration but implemented under President Donald Trump in February.

The Justice Department narrowed the definition further after Trump entered the Oval Office, deciding only those who crossed state lines in order to avoid prosecution for crimes should be unable to buy guns.

The policy gained attention Wednesday when the executive director of the anti-gun violence organization set up by former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords wrote to the FBI, calling the decision a "self-inflicted loophole" the law enforcement agency should close.
 

MD: Business A high-end 'guntry club' has Owings Mills in its sights

Standing amid a sea of office cubicles in an Owings Mills office park, Rick Landsman imagines something else: a 25-yard tactical shooting range where police officers chase moving targets to hone their skills.

Down a corridor, conference rooms could become be a 360-degree video simulator for firearms training, classrooms and a lecture hall. Still other areas could house a VIP shooting range with a private lounge and personal gun vaults, a cafe, a retail gun shop and workout rooms.

Landsman, a retired Baltimore County police officer, and business partner Brian Wolf, a current officer, recently filed a proposal for The Guntry Club of Maryland, which they describe as a high-end shooting and firearms training facility.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I now think the only way to control handgun use is to prohibit the guns. And the only way to do that is to change the Constitution. — M. Gartner, then President of NBC News, USA Today, January 16, 1992, pg. A9
