The Unionville-Sebewaing Area trapshooting team recently took home its first conference championship hardware.

The Patriots took first place in the Michigan State High School Clay Target League Conference 4, beating out Hemlock, Reading, Marine City, Big Rapids, Reese and Unity Christian.

"This was really big for the team this year," said head coach Aaron Holdwick. "Last year, we actually finished last in the conference. To go from last to first was a very big accomplishment. We had more than half of our team that were returning shooters and they really stepped up their game this year."

USA finished with weekly scores of 448, 407, 347.5, 381, and 374, for a total of 1,958.

Journalists who have become mouthpieces for gun control groups have loudly declared victory over the NRA following the recent adjournment of the Texas Legislature. They announced the resounding “defeat” with Texas legislators adding funds to the 2020-2021 budget for the Department of Public Safety to establish and promote a statewide safe gun storage campaign. Since the mainstream media won’t, let’s set the record straight.

Disputed Facts in the Gun Debate

The gun debate is difficult for many reasons. It is often an emotional issue. Unfortunately, there isn’t one gun debate, but perhaps dozens of “gun debates.” Even the questions that seem simple are difficult to answer well.

Are guns too easy to get?
Does a firearm in your home put you at greater risk?
How often do ordinary citizens defend themselves with a firearm?
A simple answer is easy to find.. and often wrong. There are questions hidden within questions as we look for the truth.
 

It’s Time For The Supreme Court To Make States Stop Ignoring The Second Amendment

The Supreme Court has the chance to reinforce its 11-year-old message to the lower courts: the Second Amendment is not to be weighed against governmental interests. The people have a natural right to keep and bear arms. Courts must consider that right as important as our Founders and Framers did. Until that happens, governments across our republic will continue to ignore our rights, and the lower courts will not stop them.

Maj Toure is the co-founder of the pro-Second Amendment activist group "Black Guns Matter" and he has a clear message for America: gun control is racist.

To the surprise of no one, all of the Democrats running for president are vehemently anti-Second Amendment. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) has made his gun hate the entire focus of his campaign.

Louisiana lawmakers shot down a proposal that would’ve prohibited gun restrictions by local governments on Friday morning, defeating the NRA-backed bill by Rep. Blake Miguez that drew fire from some municipal leaders.

A separate measure to expand Louisiana’s “stand your ground” legal protections to those using deadly force in churches or synagogues was pulled by its sponsor, GOP Rep. Beryl Amedee, of Houma, in the face of opposition from state senators.

Carrying firearms comes with a lot of responsibility and accountability, and are strictly covered by law on how and where they may be carried and also their use in personal protection is codified by law. Therefore, I highly encourage anyone interested in firearms to fully study the legal responsibility that comes with that privilege.
 

PA: PA Supreme Court: Unconstitutional to ‘Stop-and-Frisk’ For Firearms

At issue was whether someone’s carrying of a firearm could be used as reasonable suspicion of criminal conduct, and thus justification for police to conduct a “stop-and-frisk” of the gun owner. The court ruled in Hicks that such searches and seizures, in the absence of other evidence are completely unlawful.

Mark Oliva, Second Amendment advocate and public-affairs director of the National Shooting Sports Foundations, called Salesforce’s anti-firearm ultimatum a “corporate-policy virtue signal” that discriminates against gun owners. “It is a very chilling effect when a company as large as Salesforce puts out a policy like this,” Oliva stated. Then again, he added, “A policy like this is not surprising from a company based in that part of the country.”

On Wednesday, the Senate Codes Committee passed S.6151 (Kavanaugh) on a 9 to 4 vote. This legislation is a desperate attempt to moot United States Supreme Court review of New York City’s unconstitutional firearm travel laws in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York. The Supreme Court has already rejected New York City’s effort to moot the case by offering to amend its current regulation. Now, suddenly, there is a second effort to stop the Supreme Court from hearing this case by changing New York State penal law.
 

IL: Illinois gun licensing bill prompted by Aurora mass shooting fails, but supporters vow to bring it back

A major gun licensing reform bill will not make it out of the Illinois legislature this session.

Backers of the “Fix the FOID” act, which was largely a response to a mass shooting in Aurora in February, have vowed to bring back the measure for another try.

Proponents say the bill is needed to strengthen background checks for gun owners and provide more funding to better enforce existing laws that bar dangerous people from possessing weapons.
 

CO: Former Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Call for Licensing a Howler

Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper is holding himself out as a centrist and a problem-solver. Well, that’s nowhere close to the truth when it comes to Second Amendment issues. He lines up with most of the so-called “mainstream” of the Democratic Party.

In the wake of the tragic mass shootings in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater and a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school, Hickenlooper signed a lot of anti-Second Amendment legislation into law. This included a law setting an arbitrary cap on magazine capacity – although the bill in question was 15 rounds instead of 10. Like we’re supposed to be grateful for that. Take a gander at the Duncan decision before you give Hickenlooper any credit on this one.

A Closer Look at Federal Funding for “Gun Violence” Research

To get an idea of how much such research is funded at the federal level, we queried the Federal RePORTER database, which lists allocation and recipient data for grants from 18 federal departments and agencies – a subset of potential funding overall, but a starting point nonetheless. Looking at FY2018 and searching on the phrase gun* or firearm*, we found 86 projects across three entities – the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), and Veterans Administration (VA) – totaling $43 million. Perhaps not as much as some would like, but certainly not representative of “abandoned efforts.”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908 [by an Indian extremist opposed to Gandhi's agreement with Smuts], whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defend me, I told him it was his duty to defend me even by using violence. Hence it was that I took part in the Boer War, the so-called Zulu Rebellion and [World War I]. Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. — Mohandas K. Gandhi, Young India, August 11, 1920 from Fischer, Louis ed.,The Essential Gandhi, 1962
