Freshman U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey is the rare conservative Republican who is running for re-election with the support of leading gun-control groups, but it may not be enough to save him in Democratic-leaning Pennsylvania in this unusual election year. Toomey, who also has separated himself from most of his GOP Senate colleagues by refusing to endorse Donald Trump, is facing questions from skeptical Republicans over his votes to expand background checks and prevent gun purchases by suspected terrorists as he campaigns in a state where Hillary Clinton leads Trump in polls by 10 points in the presidential race.

Richard Swift grew up in the era of John Wayne and Gene Autry, cinematic cowboys whose armed antics drove his daydreams. He had a BB gun years before the first whiskers sprouted on his chin. At 12, he got a .22-caliber rifle that he’d lug around the hills and fields of his rural southeastern Pennsylvania burg, shooting targets and learning to hunt.

Two college professors recently gave journalists from around the state a crash course in gun history, terminology and use at a firing range. The state’s Society of Professional Journalists chapter organized the seminar to better educate reporters on a controversial and technically complex topic. In the course of reporting on gun issues and recent control measures, journalists have been criticized for making errors regarding the operation of guns, confusing automatic with semiautomatic firearms and using incorrect terminology. Mike Savino, a reporter with the Record-Journal and society board president, said he hoped to offer journalists a chance to learn about guns in a politically-neutral environment.

Hardware: Savage Arms A22 Magnum Rifle

The .17 HMR came out in 2002 and was a huge hit with everybody except the gun manufacturers who tried to make it work in a semi-automatic rifle. They pretty much hated it. The cartridge just didn’t play well with the current rimfire semi-auto rifle designs. Then last year Savage cracked the code and introduced the A17 semi-auto in .17 HMR. I reviewed it and it went on to win the prestigious Golden Bullseye Award from American Hunter for Rifle of the Year.

'Free-thinking' Philosophy professor's aim is off on guns

Philosopher loses touch on guns

The headline intrigued me: "Let the free market control sale of guns."

The author, a professor of ethics and philosophy of religion, Justin McBrayer, put on a different hat in Wednesday's Sentinel (National Viewpoint). In this thought-provoking commentary, he sought to solve the gun-violence problem, something normally left to constitutionalists and criminal specialists.

 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the constitution they don't like. — Alan Dershowitz
