Jefferson County Commissioners are working on a new ordinance that would forbid the discharge of firearms at Jefferson Lake. The action came after a sportsman expressed interest in hunting geese there. The new ordinance will also ban hunting. Commissioners determined there was just too much public use of the grounds to make it an appropriate place for firearm activity.

If you've ever been to a courthouse, you've likely had to step through a metal detector: no weapons allowed. But in city halls, which often host court proceedings, whether weapons are allowed is still questionable.

Governor Greg Abbott is telling Texas mayors they can't ban guns there, or in most government buildings, according to a law passed last legislative session.

The sponsor of a bill that would allow concealed weapons on Florida’s college campuses said his legislation would help prevent mass shootings like the attack at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College, which he described as a gun-free zone.

Whether the school was a gun-free zone or not emerged as a point of contention at a Nov. 19 House Judiciary Committee hearing on HB 4001. Its sponsor, state Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, disagreed with testimony against the bill from Austin Engelbrecht, a lobbyist for Florida State University.

In a provocative piece published by ProPublica on November 24, Lois Beckett explores how the debate over gun laws frequently ignores the disproportionate impact that gun violence has on black men, who make up roughly half of the 30 Americans murdered each day by firearms. Mass shootings like Newtown and Aurora capture the public’s attention, but “by most counts they represent less than 1 percent of all gun homicides.

If you have followed the news headlines lately, you know that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) – the bureaucracy responsible for ensuring the safety of our nation’s travelers – has seen better days. An internal investigation released in June found that the TSA had a stunning 96 percent failure rate in detecting weapons and fake explosives. More recently, a report from “The Today Show” revealed that NBC producers were able to pass airport security with Swiss army knives and box cutters in tow. Comforting, huh?

Following the terrorist attacks in Paris, the governors of 31 states including Arizona declared they oppose allowing Syrian refugees into their state borders. While they cannot legally carry this out, they can make the process extremely difficult for refugees to receive help from their states. These rejections are generated out of the irrational and prejudiced fear that aiding these refugees would also mean aiding ISIS terrorists in entering America undetected.

Capitol Hill Democrats make it official: The Party of Gun Control

Congressional Democrats yesterday reminded American voters why they are called the Party of Gun Control: they earn it with such moves as Monday’s separate letters – signed by more than 120 House and Senate Dems – to President Barack Obama, asking him to take executive action on gun control.

While the Huffington Post story put the number at “more than 120” Democrats signing one or the other letter, United Press International, quoted by GOPUSA, placed the figure at “nearly 140.” By either count, the signatures of those politicians should make it more difficult, if not impossible, for moderate, pro-gun Democrats to garner votes from gun owning constituents.

Bowser, at a Monday press conference, told WMAL anchor/reporter Steve Burns that guns are not the answer to new comments from District Police Chief Cathy Lanier that those facing an "active shooter" should "take the gunman out."

The zoo’s vice president of internal relations, Dustin Deschamp, testified that the zoo was within its rights under state law to keep guns out of the zoo, because the zoo qualifies as a “no gun zone” under state law.

For at least the fifth time since Texas passed a slew of new gun laws this year, Attorney General Ken Paxton is being asked to clarify where the rights of firearms owners ends and local control begins.

This time, officials from a local river authority are asking Paxton if they can continue to ban certain guns in their parks after the open carry of handguns by license holders becomes legal on Jan. 1. Currently, the river authority allows hunting in its park lands, but sets rules and restrictions on the practice.
