I stand sweating and anxious in a downtown Seattle courthouse. I am here to perform the frequently groaned about, but required responsibility as a citizen – jury duty. I am 32 and have reported for jury duty twice, but have never been called in for questioning. For this case, a high-profile gang-related shooting, every single person who showed up is questioned.

I want Hillary Clinton to be president. I think she’d do a fantastic job, better than anyone else. Yes, I admit, I’m pretty worked up about the possibility of a woman president: it’s something I thought was impossible, maybe even illegal, when I was a little girl. But one thing I’m not, as I’m routinely told, is ill-informed or ignorant—supporting Hillary only because of our shared anatomy. I have no plans to blindly follow my uterus to the nearest polling station.

How Much Should a Shotgun Weigh?

My comment that I found a 7-plus pound Ruger Red Label to be “grossly overweight” last week prompted a few comments about gun weight, including the suggestion that a 7-pound gun can’t be overweight because G.I.s carried 9-pound M1s in WWII. Allow me to clarify: yes, I can and do carry guns that weigh more than seven pounds. However, if I am carrying a gun of that weight in the uplands, it’s going to be a 12 gauge. The advantage of a 20 gauge is supposed to be its light weight. If your 20 gauge weighs as much as a 12 – we’re talking about upland guns here – all it amounts to is a ballistically inferior 12 gauge. If I’m carrying 12 gauge weight I may as well get the advantages of a 12 gauge cartridge.
 

Clinton and Sanders Fight Over Gun Control Ahead of Connecticut's Primary

This election cycle, Bernie Sanders has often described the big banks as "greedy and reckless." As the primaries shift from New York to a slew of states this week that are tough on firearms, inevitably the conversation has also turned from Wall Street toward gun control — where Hillary Clinton has described gun manufacturers and dealers in exactly the same way. The former secretary of state has already seized on the issue at several campaign stops in Connecticut, the state that just over three years later is still reeling from the shooting at an elementary school in Newtown.

Gun Rights and Property Rights Slug It Out in the Parking Lot

The mere fact that the title of this article references gun rights is likely enough to guarantee that I will receive comments, phone calls and emails about it. With that in mind, let’s get a couple of things out of the way up front. First, the purpose of this article is not to discuss a CDL driver’s right to possess a firearm in a commercial vehicle. If you want to know the answer to that question you need to start with an employer’s policy and the laws of each and every state in which your vehicles travel.

Both French and US government officials spoke again about terrorism. Again they proposed to disarm innocent citizens. They said the government would protect citizens from terrorists .. given enough time. We’ve seen the casualty count from that failed idea.

We’ve also seen how armed citizens succeed and stop mass murder again and again. Citizens will have to protect themselves without waiting for government help .. and they can.

Kenya has a choice. During writing exercises, her fourth-grade teacher, Joe Alberti, lets his students sit and work wherever they’d like. Kenya’s desk is near the door, where she has a clear view of arithmetic problems chalked on the blackboard, and printed instructions for what to do in case of a lockdown. But she decides to move to a spot where she can have more space to herself. She picks a pencil from the graveyard of broken stubs in her desk and heads for an open swath of green carpet across the classroom.

A battle is brewing over two proposed gun bills in our state. One of those would allow anyone 21 or older to openly carry without a license. Big organizations like the OKC Thunder and the Chamber of Commerce have come out against the bills. But the head of the gun lobby in Oklahoma says our state would be joining several other states with these proposals.
 

NJ: Democrats Block Christie as He Tries to Ease Up on Gun Rules

Democrats say they’ll seek to block Gov. Chris Christie’s administration from making it easier for people to get permits to carry guns, though they also promise to draft a proposal meant to better enforce an oft-ignored requirement that police process gun permit applications within a month. Christie on April 8 announced that the state would change the state’s famously stringent gun rules to allow serious but generalized threats to be sufficient reason for a person to be eligible to carry a gun. Two lawmakers and a group of gun-control groups say that’s too broad and overreaching.
 

CA: San Fran Now Has Highest Per Capita Property Crime Rate In The US

We've been talking about the smash-and-grab epidemic in San Francisco for a while now, and now the New York Times has picked up the story of this wealthy city's wave of car burglaries "that scatter glittering broken glass onto the sidewalks." They note that new data from the FBI shows that SF can now boast the highest property crime rate per capita in the nation's top 50 cities, and that the jump in property crime has been at least 60 percent since 2010 — though it is likely higher because of how many of these crimes go unreported.
 

Handgun Hunting 101: The Gear, Cartridges, and Tips You Need to Get Started

Why, with long-range hunting all the rage, would anyone commit to using a handgun for hunting big game? The answer is simple: Handgun hunting presents its own challenges, and demands more of the hunter. Rifles and muzzleloaders offer better accuracy at greater distances, but for anyone willing to put in the time and effort practicing with their firearm and closing the gap on game, handgun hunting offers a thrill all its own.

While many cities, towns and states across the U.S. have taken steps to remove the Confederate flag and other racially offensive symbols from public spaces, a new poll in Louisiana shows that the Pelican State is not yet prepared to leave the past in the past. The 2016 Louisiana Survey, conducted by LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communications, found that the Pelican State remains conservative in its views on a number of hot-button issues including gun rights, same-sex marriage and Confederate monuments.

Jon Worrall was a 50-year-old Army sergeant on board an armored Humvee in Iraq when a roadside bomb exploded, ripping holes in the truck and unveiling “more violence than I’ve ever seen packed into a quarter second.” No one was killed, but everyone involved was injured. Worrall returned home to Brentwood with a traumatic brain injury – among other wounds – that forced him to retire early from his job as a field inspector for Hartford Steam Boiler. For many veterans, he said, shocks like these reverberate well after the soldier has come back to the United States, leaving him or her with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Brigham Young’s pistol is expected to fetch over half a million dollars in an antique gun auction that also includes a rifle related to Geronimo. The Colt revolver was manufactured in 1854 for Young, who succeeded Joseph Smith as leader of the Mormons. Young led the Mormons to Utah, where they established Salt Lake City. The gun, with its “flawlessly executed scroll work” and “wolf head motif” has an estimated price of $550,000 to $850,000, according to Rock Island Auction Company, which is putting more than 3,000 guns up to bid from April 29 to May 1.
