A man who was walking near a school with a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle on his shoulder and a handgun in a holster had his loitering conviction overturned Tuesday by a Wisconsin appeals court, a victory for open carry advocates. The 3rd District Court of Appeals ruled that the case against Mark Hoffman should have been dismissed because the evidence suggested the only reason he was stopped by police was because of the guns. While it may be alarming to see someone openly carrying firearms, Wisconsin state law allows it as long as there is no evidence of criminal or malicious intent, the appeals court said.

There has not been one case of a little girl being molested by a transgender woman in a restroom anywhere in America.

Ever.

But to hear Governor of North Carolina Pat McCrory or Lt. Governor of Texas Dan Patrick tell it, America's restrooms are suddenly seething hotbeds of transgender molestation, or if they're not they soon will be, though they can't point to a single example in the history of the United States.

Jonathan Mossberg has already made a smart gun — a shotgun that can only be discharged by someone wearing a ring that communicates with a chip inside the weapon, unlocking it. The gunmaker’s smart guns, there are about 25 of them, are nearly 20 years old. They have been tested repeatedly and kept in the homes of his friends and family for self-defense. But Mossberg’s Florida-based company, iGun Technology Corp., has never scaled the high-tech components to a handgun. And cultural and political barriers have stood in the way of selling the guns commercially.

Sitting in a lecture hall with a police-issued Glock handgun holstered on his hip and recent police gun training fresh in his head, Muhlenberg College student Joey Dolan is ambushed by an armed gunman and shot in the head and chest before he can even untangle his pistol from his shirt. Though this particular situation is only part of an experiment conducted in Pennsylvania by ABC News several years ago that employed plastic bullets tipped with paint, it still holds relevance to a recent movement here at the UW. Students for Concealed Carry, a registered student organization, seeks to legalize carrying concealed weapons on the UW campus for “licensed individuals,” as it states on its Facebook page.
