A 90-year-old woman is recovering after a Good Samaritan saved her from an alligator attack on Wednesday.

Dwain Daniels III was driving by, saw the attack and rushed out of his vehicle to help. ...
Daniels took a shot at the alligator and believes he hit it. He says the gator was seven to eight feet long.

Submitter's note: Several articles on this incident fail to mention that the Good Samaritan was armed. Several more downplay it.

Michigan law permits gun owners to obtain and use noise suppressors or silencers as long as they go through a federal permitting process, according to a formal opinion released Friday by Attorney General Bill Schuette.

The state law, which generally forbids the sale or possession of firearm mufflers or silencers, contains an exemption for those obtained with federal authorization, Schuette said.

Pontiac Police Chief Val Gross was under investigation for allegedly falsifying documents in the months before his firing, according to an investigation.

Materials obtained through the Michigan Freedom of Information Act show that Gross gave a preliminary breath test to friend Roderick Akins on New Year's Eve, but log book records of the time of the test and GPS readings on the man's tether didn't match up, prompting an inquiry by the Michigan State Police at the request of the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

One gaggle of friends gets together on Friday mornings to look down their pistol barrels and send bullets flying to targets at the Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area shooting range.

It's an informal group of men and women, most from the Rocky Branch area at Beaver Lake, who get together to socialize and target shoot.

A gun, by any other name, is just a gun. Unless it's a Glock semi-automatic pistol raffled off by Republicans in Pima County, which just happens to be the same county where Democratic U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 19 other people were shot, six of them killed.

Then it's an outrage.

Or so we're supposed to believe.

Last week, I had a post wherein I discussed the fact that the DOJ had re-assigned Kenneth Melson, Acting Director of the ATF, and accepted the resignation of Dennis Burke, U.S. Attorney (Arizona), in hopes that Fast and Furious could be swept under the rug.

In other words, can’t we let bygones be bygones?

A firearms store designed to be inviting to women has opened in northwest Fresno.

LRStone's Firearms, at 3058 W. Bullard Ave. near Marks Avenue, held its grand opening last month.

Owner Leona "Lee" Stone welcomes both male and female customers, and sells firearms, stun guns, pepper spray and other defense devices.

There is a wide variety of firearms and accessories, along with the occasional pink-gripped handgun and pink set of ear protection for the shooting range.

"For women especially, buying a firearm is a bit intimidating," she said. "I wanted something that was woman friendly."

One of the attendees at Lee’s event asked the freshman senator: “What can you do to get these people to fess up about ‘fast and furious’ and how high it went?”

Lee’s response: “OK, let’s pretend that one of us doesn’t know what ‘fast and furious’ is.”

After an unusually long pause, the attendee sheepishly said, “Would that be you?”

To which Lee said, “Yes, sir.”

Laughter filled the room.

Major changes in Show-Me State gun laws will take effect Sunday as Governor Jay Nixon signed House Bill 294 into recently.

While many of the changes will affect concealed carry permit holders, the new law provides for several other significant provisions all of which tend to favor gun owners.

The most significant change brought about by the new law deals with the age at which Missouri residents may apply for a concealed carry permit. Prior to this change, those interested in obtaining a permit had to wait until they reached the age of 23. The new law lowers it to 21.

Holmes took advantage of the state's Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday to purchase a Benelli Super Vinci shotgun. Purchase of hunting-related items Friday, Saturday and Sunday are exempt from state and local sales taxes.

"I'm ready," Holmes said. "I'm going to go home, pack up and go to the Louisiana Delta to dove hunt for the weekend."

“Gun Query Off Limits for Doctors in Florida.” Florida recently passed a law forbidding doctors to ask patients whether they keep a gun unless they find the matter “relevant.” (Your guess of what “relevant” means is as good as mine.)

Questions like “Do you wear seat belts?” and “Is rat poison within your toddler’s reach?” are still permitted in the semi-free state of Florida. But an inquiry on whether Junior has easy access to guns — the source of thousands of children’s deaths a year— is forbidden.

Questions about President Barack Obama just do not seem to get resolved and go away. The question now arises if Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder will be implicated in potential criminal activity in Operation Fast and Furious. It they are, will they be able to extricate themselves?

Hearings have taken place in our Capitol on Operation Fast and Furious. It appears that a part of this Operation included efforts by the Obama Administration to allow more than 1,000 guns to be illegally smuggled into Mexico?

I wonder sometimes if anyone else sees the split personality in Indiana when it comes to firearms.

A school bus aide from East Chicago was suspended Thursday after a handgun allegedly dropped from his waistband in front of a busload of kids.

Yet the Indiana General Assembly has passed a law saying that registered firearm owners may carry their guns onto public property such as parks and other places kids go.

He told Total Film magazine: “I think Andrew has an ability to use his films to make us look in the mirror. He does it in such a smart way. I’ve never done a film like this so I was excited to jump into those running shoes- I run a lot in this movie.

“It’s very intimate and performance driven, but it was fun to drive cars really fast and shoot guns and not get arrested for it!”
