If you ask just about any grey-haired shooter, “How’s your hearing?” you will likely get an answer of, “How’s that?” or “Say again?” often with one ear cocked toward you. Fact is, guns make a lot of noise, and that noise will damage your hearing, especially if you don’t wear adequate hearing protection—or “ear pro” in range lexicon. None of this is news; shooters have complained about noise for more than a century.

Reaction to the “60 Minutes” segment Sunday evening about concealed carry reciprocity has been swift, and largely negative, as the more than 260 comments posted at the CBS website attest.

In an online follow-up segment, Kroft seemingly suggested to Congressman Richard Hudson, sponsor of the Reciprocity legislation, that he did not see his colleagues at 60 Minutes being trustworthy with guns or temperament.

Christmas came early last year for supporters of the Second Amendment, as the U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution 38 (H.R. 38), the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, on Dec. 6. National Right-to-Carry reciprocity has long been the NRA’s top legislative priority. H.R. 38 is by far the strongest, most comprehensive version of this legislation we’ve seen to date. Its movement through the House was an historic development in Congress’ protection of our right to keep and bear arms.

Arkansas legislators want to revisit parts of a state law that allowed concealed handguns to be carried at college campuses, government buildings and other locations by those with additional training. Two Republican lawmakers proposed removing the requirement that concealed carry instructors offer both the regular training and the enhanced training under an expanded concealed handgun law approved last year. The law allows concealed handgun licensees to carry at the new locations if they undergo up to eight hours in additional training.

The National Firearms Act of 1934 is a tricky thing. If you have a rifle with a 16-inch barrel, then you are in full compliance with the NFA. If you have a rifle that has a 15.9-inch barrel, then you are guilty of a crime. The ATF would like you to pay a fee of $200 for a tax stamp, provide fingerprints, mug shots, and wait months and months for the honor of owning a short barreled rifle.

Evergreen State Second Amendment activists are feverishly advocating for an amendment to the proposed state’s emergency powers statute that would prohibit the governor to ban possession of firearms outside the home during a declared state of emergency.

In an alert to Washington State gun owners, the Firearms Policy Coalition is urging them to support proposed Floor Amendment 545, which would “bring state law into compliance with current case law on the matter.”

In fact, the MK series .22LR pistols and 10/22 rifles are among the most popular choices in rimfire Steel Challenge.

American gunmakers produced more than 11 million firearms in 2016, setting a new annual record and doubling yearly output from 2009, according to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). The obvious instant analysis of the industry’s growth is to attribute it to fears about the erosion of gunowners’ rights under the Obama administration and the near-hysteria over the prospect of gun control matriarch Hillary Clinton being elected president in 2016.
