"... Target shooting and hunting teaches patience, disciple, self-esteem, ethics, and confidence in children, however a 2008 study shows a drop in the number of young people who participate in hunting. Research in 2012 ... found that 23 million 8 to 17 year olds would hunt and 27 million would target shoot if they were invited. ..."

"... The Two Million Bullets campaign’s goal is to encourage not only two million people, but also all of us like-minded shooters and hunters, to donate just one dollar to help introduce and teach safety, the shooting sports, hunting, fishing, and archery to kids who would otherwise never know these much-loved outdoor activities. Donations help pay for hunting licenses, trips, fees, equipment, clothing, and food." ...

"Fast and Furious. Conceal and carry. The Dark Knight theater shootings. In America these days, it seems like everyone is packing heat. In fact, we're the most heavily armed populace on the planet. So where do most of us go when we need a shiny new Glock or a convenient AK-47? Increasingly to mega-shops like Sprague's Sports in Yuma, Arizona. That's where Jeanne Marie Laskas ventured recently, spending a few shifts behind the counter and seeing for herself how we shop, sell, justify, and even come to love the deadliest things among us" ...

"A streak of recent gun violence, including a shooting rampage in Seattle that left six people dead, has reignited the debate over gun control in Washington. Should cities be allowed to implement their own restrictions on handguns? Is the so-called 'gun show loophole' helping guns into the hands of criminals and the mentally unstable? Does an armed citizenry make us more or less safe? C.R. Douglas explores the balance between public safety and constitutional rights." ...

Self-Defense Tip: Don’t Shoot Less-Lethal Rounds (vidoe available)

"Loads of armed Americans load-up their home defense shotgun with less-lethal buckshot. More than a few owners of the shotshell firing Taurus Judge and Smith & Wesson Governor revolvers do likewise—at least for the first chamber or two. Wrong answer. There’s only one reason to shoot someone: if they pose a credible, imminent threat of death or grievous bodily harm to you or another innocent life. If it’s do or die, you want to stop a threat as quickly, efficiently and completely as possible. Shooting a bad guy with less lethal rounds (or aiming lethal rounds at extremities) to 'just wound' an attacker is a dangerously naive plan. Actually, it’s so stupid it’s not really a plan at all . . ." ...

"I've tried to be dedicated to getting in some dry fire practice on the days I don't hit the range. It took me a long time to 1) understand that this is a valuable training tool and 2) get committed to making it a routine. Dry fire practice involves going through the various actions involved in accurately firing a pistol, without actually firing a pistol. It helps to build muscle memory, so that when you actually shoot, your body instinctively knows what to do." ...

"The U.N. conference to draft an Arms Trade Treaty concluded without a draft document being produced. However, that is not to say the world’s gun controllers have given up as they will be back and you can count on it. The treaty was supposedly aimed at 'illicit arms' until one reads some of the proposals and definitions."

"Many stand behind our Second Amendment believing it will protect our right to lawful, peaceful gun ownership for our population. This may be true, until you look at the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court and the recent marginal decisions it has ruled upon. With the change of one justice to a liberal anti-gun vote, our individual rights in Heller or McDonald where cities and states cannot prohibit that right would not now be law." ...

"The vast majority of the states recognize that just because something looks scary doesn’t actually mean that it is more dangerous. Unfortunately for those living in the state of California, as the state mantra goes 'appearance is everything.' Hence their assault weapons ban, which restricts ownership of scary looking guns. Until now, the only way around this was an individual, non-transferable 'permit' that would enable you as an individual to buy, own and sell these guns — a business could not apply for one to cover all their staff. Meaning thousands upon thousands of dollars in fees and paperwork to get the employees of a gun shop 'on the level' with CA’s laws if they wanted to sell the most popular rifles in the United States.

There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
