I was studying people who cause mass murder and also the people who stop it. That study is unpleasant but necessary. I’m glad I have a choice to set it aside. I get to step away from evil and see the amazing joys in life.

Not everyone is so lucky. Here is my gratitude to those who face evil for us every day.

America’s gun owners may be particularly eager to celebrate the end of 2018 next Monday night, because for Second Amendment activists, it has been a tough year, and with Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi preparing to take control of the U.S. House of Representatives, the next 12 months could be rough as well.

Buoyed by the passage of yet another anti-rights citizen initiative in November, anti-gunners in the Washington Legislature have pre-filed a bill restricting so-called “large capacity magazines” that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition, and many rights activists believe this measure is likely only “Step One” toward a complete prohibition.

The Ohio General Assembly has voted to override Gov. John Kasich’s veto on, HB 228, a bill that would revamp the way the state handles self-defense cases in court. The law shifts the burden of proof in self-defense cases from the defense to the prosecution. It had strong support from pro-gun groups, who said this would put Ohio in step with every other state in the country.
 

7 Facts About Guns in the U.S.

Guns are deeply ingrained in American society. The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gives Americans the right to bear arms, and around three-in-ten American adults personally own a gun. Most of these gun owners say the right to own firearms is essential to their own personal sense of freedom. At the same time, gun violence – from big-city murders to mass shootings – has spurred debate in Congress and state legislatures over proposals to limit Americans’ access to firearms. Counting murders and suicides, nearly 40,000 people died of gun-related violence in the United States in 2017, the highest annual total in decades.

Information has taken on a whole new meaning in the digital age, a time when sensitive data is either too easily accessible or not accessible enough. This issue of access to information encompasses fundamental human rights – specifically the freedom of speech as well as the right to privacy. Because it’s a primary means of maintaining transparency and accountability within government policies and decision-making in both the United States and around the globe, information is more valuable than ever to both government agencies and our individual lives. This guide takes an in-depth look at FOIA history and the importance of exercising your right to know.

After months of discussion over letting archers help with the deer overpopulation in Colorado Springs, City Council has shelved the idea for now. If you've spent any amount of time in Colorado Springs, you've seen members of our deer population. It can make for a picturesque mountain setting, but wildlife officials and city leaders say the reality is darker.

Any time you’re involved in a shooting incident, accidental or intentional, even in a case of otherwise justifiable self-defense, responding police will probably at some point administer a breath-test. When you blow anything but a 00, it is safe to say that evidence will not be “helpful” to your case.

 

Tom Arnold, Who Keeps Calling the NRA a Terrorist Organization, Explains What it Really Does

As we say all the time here, if you want an example of unhinged hatred on Twitter, just check out Dana Loesch’s timeline for one night. It’s almost to the point we’re worried for her safety not from some random psycho but from Tom Arnold, who really, seriously, seems to have a stalker thing going on with Loesch and her husband. If Jack Dorsey needs an example of targeted harassment on his platform, here it is. Why is Arnold tweeting Loesch this time? Because he knows what the NRA is up to and he’s just going to tweet it out.

The NRA is arguably the best defender of our Second Amendment rights. I’m not asking you to just take my word for it. Ask Andrew Cuomo, who has resorted to the misuse of financial regulations to silence the political opposition to his extreme anti-Second Amendment agenda. However, the NRA isn’t always perfect. Lately, it’s having trouble in the suburbs. Winning the suburbs is important, but there is also a need to reach out to urban areas. One necessity of doing that will be to deal with the fact that over 250 cities and counties will be required to print ballots in multiple languages, according to the Pew Research Center.

Two guns bills are among the hundreds Missouri lawmakers are pre-filing for the legislative session that begins January 9th. Representative Justin Hill and Representative Gretchen Bangert have introduced the bills. Hill's bill deals with where gun owner's can store their gun as long as it's in their own private car, while Bangert's bill would require your gun to be unloaded and securely stored in your car so guns don't end up in the hands of criminals.

After a few years of frenzy in firearm production, 2018 may have seemed comparatively sluggish. While gun sales remained steady all year, the calmer environment didn’t stop the innovation and design process from progressing. American Rifleman editors were easily—and pleasantly—reminded of this when it came to select the coveted 2019 Golden Bullseye Awards. NRA Publications will present its 17th annual Golden Bullseye Awards and Golden Bullseye Pioneer Award at an invitation-only breakfast on Friday, April 26, during the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Ind.

If you’ve followed my work in NRA Publications over the years, you know I enjoy taking gun review risks from time to time. Sometimes it’s a debated model, an unusual design or something wholly unconventional. This year, a friend in the industry introduced me to a bolt-action rifle company founded in 2017, offering a new action (launched in 2018) chambered for a cartridge that isn’t yet a year old. That’s three kinds of new all rolled into one. Some would say that’s too risky to try, but based on what I learned about the company and the cartridge, it was a calculated risk I was willing to take— and I’m glad I did.

A customer held at gunpoint during a convenience-store robbery in North Carolina interrupted the suspects' plan by opening fire on them. A Rockingham County Sheriff's Office news release said two masked men entered a Reidsville convenience store early on Christmas morning with guns and held the cashier and two patrons at gunpoint while they robbed the store.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power." [Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)]
