After an extensive investigation by the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, it was determined that no charges will be issued in the shooting death in May of an 18-year-old Trenton man.

According to Prosecutor Kym Worthy, the evidence supports that the officer acted in “lawful self-defense and in defense of others” when he shot Kyle Baker.
 

Does Owning a Gun Make You Safer? Not According to the Data

The United States has the most heavily armed civilian population in the First World; our homes contain enough firearms for every man, woman and child.

Why do so many Americans own guns? The main reason, according to surveys, is protection. Advocates argue that guns in the home both deter crime (criminals refrain from even trying to break in because they fear being shot by an armed citizen) and thwart it (an armed citizen can stop a crime in progress, preventing injury or theft).

Area police chiefs say they do not believe that new state minimum standards for use of deadly force by police will have much impact on the policies they have in place now.

Stow Police Chief Jeff Film said Sept. 3 that from what he had heard so far, he does not believe the standards will impact the city.

"We're way ahead of the game. We've had a use of force policy for a long time, before I started, which was '91," said Film. "We're way above what they're asking."

Tom, I fully understand your frustration expressed in your editorial. Two defining issues of our time that cause the biggest splits in politics and personal beliefs are gun control and abortion. To the true believers on both sides there is no middle ground.

I suppose where I have issues is the call for "reasonable" gun control. Who decides what is reasonable?

Americans are increasingly convinced that owning a gun makes them safer.

A new Rasmussen poll found that an overwhelming majority of Americans (68 percent) “feel safer in a neighborhood where guns are allowed.” And a series of polls by Gallup, the Pew Research Center, and ABC News and the Washington Post show similar results.

You frequently find fortune cookie aphorisms, yes, but it’s not often that you find searing insight within Twitter’s 140-character confines. Which is why a June tweet from one Dan Hodges — his profile describes him as a British political commentator — stood out.

“In retrospect,” wrote Hodges, “Sandy Hook marked the end of the U.S. gun control debate. Once America decided killing children was bearable, it was
 

The Wisconsin Legislature Should Hold Hearings on Gun Bills

One of the more effective ways for government officials to shut out the public from policy issues and debate is to simply ignore the issues. Don't bring up matters of public concern; look the other way if someone else does. I'd guess that more bills have been buried in some state legislative committee by Democrats and Republicans than there are tombstones in Forest Home Cemetery.

Ah yes, Labor Day weekend. The unofficial end of summer. Football back on the tube. The first leaves starting to fall (well not here in Austin, but somewhere). The promise of better shooting weather. And the second semi-annual Knob Creek machine gun shoot and confab’s not far off. Of course, if you’re planning on attending the fall shoot, you’ll wan to maximize your time on the line with all that fun full-auto paraphernalia by making yourself familiar with as many those bullet hoses as possible.

“A North Bend man accused of fatally shooting a childhood friend while showing off a pistol he knew had been recalled has been charged with manslaughter,” komonews.com reports. As Fergie would say, h-h-h-h-hold it. Let’s skip straight to relevant information about the pistol Robert C. Navarro used to kill his friend.
 

USA Today’s Revelation: More Calls for Gun Control Mean More Gun Sales

Shazam! It’s almost as if Americans are rational actors, responding to the threat of potentially higher costs, increased regulatory hurdles and more scarcity by stocking up on a given item. That’s USA Today’s Kevin Johnson’s incredulous takeaway from the news that August NICS checks were the highest since the system was created. The NSSF’s Larry Keane attempts to explain this mysterious phenomenon for the economically challenged: “Whenever there is a call for gun control, sales increase.” Eloquent in its brevity, no?

One of the finest made pistols that a shooter can lay his hands on is a Sphinx Arms pistol.

These Swiss made handguns have raised the bar on manufacturing and the build quality is nothing short of superb.

Many moons ago we reviewed the Compact version for RECOIL Magazine and when test time was over we regretted not buying the sample we received. However, the author made a vow to grab the next one that came down the pike.

Every time there is a mass shooting or any other criminal event involving guns there is a chorus of voices imploring us to think about the children and pass new background check laws or other restrictions on the purchase of firearms. It’s a touching story and one which gets the media all up in high dudgeon as they beseech us to help stop the violence.

As a general rule of thumb, I refuse to read the Raleigh News & Observer, but everyone once in a while their editorial staff will go above beyond their normal vapid bloviating to new heights… or depths, depending on your point of view.

The N&O’s Ned Barnett has gone that “extra mile” in an op-ed blaming gun owners for buying guns that are then stolen by criminals.

New technology coming to Rockford will help law enforcement read the unique "fingerprints" that guns leave on spent shell casings and bullets to help solve more violent crimes.

The ballistics tool could help detectives combat gun crime in the region by matching evidence from guns used in violent crimes.

I am still waiting for the News Sentinel to get back to practicing real journalism instead of being the quasi-journalism tabloid paper that it has become. The lead Sept. 1 story, "Bill would ban gun at events," should have been titled "Democrats attack law-abiding gun permit citizens again." Who wouldn't support the first title?

“A Santa Ana homeowner said he ‘had to pull the trigger’ after wrestling a gun from one of two intruders who entered his home Friday morning,” ktla.com reports. Copy that. What else are you going to do after a bad guy enters your bedroom with a gun, takes “an enormous amount of physical abuse” and keeps coming? The fact that Erickson Dumaual used the bad guy’s own gun is neither here not there, although you have to wonder why Mr. Dumaual didn’t have a gun there, by the bedside.

On September 5, the California Senate passed a bill banning residents from flying drones over prisons or jails in the state. Those caught doing so would face misdemeanor charges.

The bill now goes to Governor Jerry Brown (D) to be signed. According to San Diego Source, the bill was driven by Republicans concerned that drones would be used to deliver pornography, drugs, guns and other contraband to prisoners and inmates.

Renewed calls for more restrictive gun laws, following a succession of fatal shootings in the United States, immediately appear to be generating a boost for the gun industry.

Newly released August records show that the FBI posted 1.7 million background checks required of gun purchasers at federally licensed dealers, the highest number recorded in any August since gun checks began in 1998.
