"Veteran gun rights activist Joe Waldron, former executive director of the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and now its legislative director, has unveiled what he calls a 'progressive pro-gun road map' for the Evergreen State."

"He shared the draft document exclusively with the Gun Rights Examiner, stressing that this is not designed as a carved-in-stone agenda, but more in the nature of 'food for thought' for gun owner consideration over the next couple of years. With certain modifications, this could apply to other states." ...

"Soldiers fined 50 cents for lack of weaponry"

"On July 25, 1788, the first Ohio law to establish and regulate a militia was published in Marietta. It mandated all men between 16 and 50 perform military duty. They were required to arm themselves with a musket and bayonet, a cartridge box, powder horn, one pound of powder and four pounds of lead. They also were ordered to drill every Sunday."

"By November, fines were implemented for those who failed to meet the requirements. For example, a soldier with no musket and bayonet had to pay 50 cents. Those who failed to show up for drill were fined 25 cents. Refusing guard duty cost them $1. And failure to serve in case of invasion meant a court-martial." ...

More importantly all of the cool kids are drinking the Kool-aid."

That even though the CZ was a great pistol, the next best thing out of Shot Show had to be better. Live and learn." ...

If you can manage to put a bullet through it, the contents will react in an explosive boom -- viscerally satisfying and tons of fun." ...

"... McWilliams called the National Parks and Wildlife Services (NPWS) to report that the female eastern gray kangaroo was lurking outside her home ... But wildlife officials reportedly told her to simply ignore the kangaroo and that it would move on."

"Instead, the kangaroo attacked her 143-pound mastiff dog the next day."

"And the day after that, the kangaroo assaulted McWilliams as she was headed out to her car, on the way to pick up her daughter from school. When McWilliams saw the kangaroo approaching to attack, she curled into a ball on the ground." ...
