“Pom-Pom” was the name given to the 37mm Maxim gun by the Boers of South Africa, based on the gun’s sound. It was a Maxim machine gun scaled up to the quite impressive 37mm caliber, intended primarily for naval use defending large vessels against small torpedo boats. This particular example is serial number 2024, made in 1889 and then sold three twice before being ultimately purchased by the United States Coast Guard and installed on the USS Manning (along with a second gun, number 2026).

Marilyn Smolenski's line of body wear isn't the only thing her customers are concealing beneath their clothes. Sporting pockets on both sides, Smolenski's form-fitting top doubles as a handgun holster for one contingent of the concealed carry set: women. The Park Ridge entrepreneur launched Nickel and Lace, a company mixing concealed carry fashion with safety, in 2012 after reaching a frustrating conclusion: The holsters she borrowed from her husband for use in a self-defense and safety course just didn't hit the mark.

A recent editorial in The Monett Times fired up a lot of opinions from readers, including one from the Lawrence County sheriff. "I had had enough of people bashing officers, telling officers that they did wrong, that they have done things wrong when they have absolutely no training, no background to explain how that officer did that or why that officer was there," said Sheriff Brad DeLay.

Katie Couric received criticism earlier this year for her portrayal of gun owners in her documentary, “Under the Gun.” Now, it’s coming back to haunt her. Couric is now being sued for $12 million by the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a Second Amendment advocacy group. A few months after it was released in January, the documentary came under fire due to a scene in which Couric appeared to stump gun rights advocates with the question: “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”

James and others decried what they see as a “ludicrous and stupid” Senate Bill 656, which eliminates the need for training and a permit to carry a concealed firearm.

Thanks to a new law that went into effect last month, college students starting a new school year in Texas will be greeted with the newest in campus mainstays: concealed weapons. Texas’ “campus carry” law for the first time allows students to carry firearms on campus. Defended by Second Amendment advocates as “constitutionally sound,” opponents of the law are calling it “dangerously experimental” and “unsafe” — people like John Fox, a survivor of the 1966 University of Texas shooting.

The graphic video imagines the shooting death of a young woman during a home invasion.

That much is not in question.

What is in question: Whether the short film by a Second Amendment activist crosses a line by violently portraying the fictional death of a real-life student protester.

This Legal Roadblock Infuriates Local Gun Prohibitionists

It’s called state preemption, and anti-gun mayors, city councils and political police chiefs despise it nearly as much as the nation’s gun prohibition lobbying groups.

Everytown for Gun Safety dislikes these laws so much that they devote an entire page on their website to bashing the concept. Bloomington, Indiana Mayor John Hamilton railed against his state’s preemption law in a July 21 Op-Ed for the New York Times. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s attempt to skirt Washington’s 33-year-old preemption law by signing a “gun violence tax” into law last year is currently being challenged in court.

Visitors to the Montgomery County Courthouse must wait a little longer for commissioners to decide whether there will be changes to the courthouse security policy regarding pocketknives and other small weapons. On Monday, commissioners tabled an amendment to the policy that would have forced knife bearers, and other small weapons holders, to either take the weapons back to their vehicles or have them confiscated. Presently, small weapons are held in a drawer near the entrance and returned upon the owner exiting the building.

NRA Nevadans for Freedom launched its first television ad this week against the Question 1 gun control ballot initiative. The 30-second ad will run in the state's two largest television markets, Las Vegas and Reno. “Stand With Law Enforcement,” features Attorney General Adam Laxalt alongside Nevada sheriffs Ken Furlong (Carson City), Chuck Allen (Washoe County), and Gerald Antinoro (Storey County). The state's top law enforcement officer and sheriffs make a powerful case for why Question 1 “is not going to do a thing to prevent crime,” and will instead turn well-meaning Nevadans into criminals.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms. — Robert Heinlein
