Daytona Beach, Florida-based iGun Technology Corp. has been developing a “smart gun,” a firearm that uses a ring with a chip in it to send a signal to a circuit board embedded in the firearm so that only an authorized user can fire the gun. But this isn’t the only technology that exists or is being developed.

While the defeat of the controversial SJR 39 stole much of the attention at Capitol last week, several other important measures made significant headway in the General Assembly, including a proposal to allow Missourians to carry concealed guns without a permit. The House passed the concealed carry bill and sent it to the Senate. The Senate, meanwhile, passed a bill sponsored by Sen. Bob Dixon, R-Springfield, that would reform the state's criminal penalties for juveniles convicted of first-degree murder.

Pronghorn have been slowly rebounding after being decimated by three straight severe winters starting in 2008. Last year's season was only the second in North Dakota since 2009.

The giant jail door clanks open slowly. I’m waiting in a small, plain visitor room for a young woman named Erin Caffey. She is led in by a heavily armed guard, which seems almost laughably unnecessary given that she’s only 4ft 11in.
Erin, now 24, has been detained at a high-security prison in Gatesville, Texas, for eight years. She’s blonde, blue-eyed, pretty, softly spoken and she has the voice of an angel.
My first impression is that she seems gentle, sweet and unthreatening, as befits someone from a loving, stable home, someone who had never been in trouble, and who sang in the church choir every Sunday with her parents and two brothers.

COMMENT: "A heavily armed jail guard"? I doubt it. Just as I doubt everything else Piers says.

The sanctuary of the Keystone Fellowship Church used to be a safe place for church members to worship and fellowship with others. That changed abruptly Sunday when a member opened fire during service. An argument began after Mark Storms, 46, told Robert Braxton III, 27, he was sitting in seats reserved for two other church members, according to a statement made by District Attorney Kevin Steele, The New York Daily News reported. After a church member tapped Braxton on the shoulder to let him know he was in someone else’s seat, Braxton yelled “don’t (expletive) touch me” an affidavit obtained by NBC Philadelphia said.

President Barack Obama announced new steps Friday to help curb gun violence, including by identifying the requirements that "smart guns" would have to meet for law enforcement agencies to buy and use them as well as sharing mental health records with the federal background check system. Smart guns use various technologies to prevent an accidental shooting or help track down a missing gun.

I was 11 years old when Jonathan Cott first brought a gun to school. It was bright red, or maybe dark blue – colours tend to fade first in the memory – and the paint was chipped at the corners. Cotty, as we called him, was always in deluxe kinds of trouble. Once, while we sat at our desks awaiting the arrival of a long-suffering English teacher, Cotty balanced a large cardboard box on the frame of the classroom door. When the teacher entered, the box fell over his head, trapping his arms in such a way that it took a good 15 seconds for the man to unsheathe himself by bobbing his head back and forth, fellatially.

Several pieces of hotly contested legislation continue to wait on the desk of Gov. Nathan Deal, as Tuesday’s deadline looms for him to sign, veto or opt to not take action on the measures. Despite statewide opposition from university administrators and their police chiefs, it’s not certain how Deal will act on a bill allowing concealed handguns on college campuses. The bill would still bar guns from student housing, which includes fraternity and sorority houses, athletic facilities and disciplinary hearings.

On a recent hometown visit to celebrate my brother’s birthday, he turned the tables and surprised me with gifts. He no longer wanted to keep two items he inherited when our parents died. I was happy to accept them because they have sentimental value for me.

Lightning Jack has his sights set on becoming the fastest shooter in the world. Jacob Finlayson, 22, of Gore, aka Lightning Jack, is returning to the End of Trail competition in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in June. The last time he was there in 2014 he was ranked the eighth-deadliest cowboy in the world. Because he didn't return in 2015 he lost his rank, but this year he was aiming for the top spot, Finlayson said. "The best thing for me to do is aim for number one."

The national upswing in female gun owners and women applying for concealed carry permits is being felt in the state of Washington.

Over the years, Hornady has developed some excellent handgun and rifle loads, in popular calibers, that proved to be top performers across a wide range of ballistic pursuits—target shooting, competition and even hunting and self-defense. In common to these loads were the company's time-tested bullets—the renowned XTP for handgun cartridges, and the accurate hollow points and boattail hollow points in the rifle loads. Now, Hornady is bringing such loads together under the American Gunner line of utility ammunition, a line that features proven loads, made from quality components, but now offered at a price that provides a real value to shooters.

Today kicks off this three-day event. For many of the vendors here, this is how they make their living, traveling the gun show circuit. This is a great place for families to learn about gun laws and safety, but what would happen, if say, President Obama cracked down on gun control? There may be a few people who are looking to just sell their own personal guns. Dennis Mack, co-chairman of the Great Falls Gun and Antique show, says that though there aren't any changes this time around, they are prepared for any changes that may come his way.

The usual gaggle of anti-gun suspects has come out of the woodwork to attack the “gun lobby” for its opposition to any action on behalf of Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. Coupled with their typical protestations that their attacks on Second Amendment advocates are not attacks on the Second Amendment itself, their words are laden with half-truths and selectively culled “facts.”

Rev. Robert Schenck has been a vocal pro-life advocate in the abortion debate for decades. But he's taken this stance further after pondering the question: How can evangelicals be pro-life AND pro-gun? He's now challenging the devout to adopt a new way of thinking about firearms and self-defense.

Jonathan Mossberg is among a small number of pioneers looking to build a safer gun. But unlike many others, he was in the gun business when he started down that path. His family is renowned for its premier line of shotguns treasured by law enforcement, hunters and the military. Mossberg already has spent more than a decade working to develop — and someday bring to the market — a firearm that the wrong person cannot fire. It is intended to work without fail in the hands of its owner in a life-or-death situation.

While walking through 5.11 Tactical’s store, Tom Davin stopped, placed a finger on his pocket and noted, “What’s great for a rifle magazine is also great for a cellphone.” As many in the digital age can attest, loose or small pockets can easily lead to phone catastrophes. But while a civilian’s cracked screen can lead to financial headaches, bullets tumbling from a poorly pocketed magazine clip during an arrest could have more severe consequences.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
