Last week President Trump authorized strikes on military installations in Syria, in response to its use of chemical weapons. I think this is a good thing. Chemical weapons have rightly been outlawed around the world by international agreement, and the community of nations committed to their prohibition has an interest in making sure that those who would violate these norms are punished.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll suggests that “the renewed gun control debate is a wild card in the midterm elections” this fall, with 42 percent of voters saying that it is “extremely important” that political candidates share their views regarding guns, according to the newspaper. Another revelation that should surprise nobody is that three-fourths of the voters who support new gun legislation will vote for Democrats for the dozens of Congressional seats up for grabs. However, 80 percent of the people who are strong on gun rights support Republicans.

Delaware's legislature is set to return to session on Tuesday with a number of gun control proposals potentially set for votes in the coming weeks. Senate lawmakers tabled legislation raising the minimum age to buy a rifle to 21 years old on the final day before the Easter break. Republicans had proposed a number of amendments to the bill, including a provision that would have allowed people who have completed hunter education courses to get a hunting license to be exempt from the legislation.

A college student in Tennessee caused controversy after she posted graduation photos of herself toting a handgun and a pink "Women for Trump" shirt. She claims it is empowering for women to own guns so they can protect themselves, rather than rely on others to protect them. But critics argue guns are fundamentally incompatible with feminism. Women make up the large share of gun violence victims, and the NRA is just exploiting feminism for monetary gain. What do you think?

The actions are “preventing law-abiding Americans from exercising their constitutional rights,” the National Rifle Association’s Institute For Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) maintains in an April 15 statement.

It's too early to say for sure, but it could be that the free market will wind up doing what Congress refuses to do: tighten access to firearms and stand up to companies that make and sell assault-style weapons. Bank of America announced last week that it will no longer finance companies that make the kinds of combat-style semiautomatic rifles that have been used to such deadly effect in mass shootings. Last month, Citigroup Inc. announced that it would prohibit clients using its financial services and credit cards from selling firearms to customers who have not passed a background check, or who are younger than 21, even when neither of those things are required by law.
 

Tips to Remove Lead From Your Handguns

Loading and shooting both cast and swaged-lead bullets in my pistols and revolvers has always been one of my passions. One of the things to remember with lead bullets in handguns is to match the bullet to the application, which helps to limit lead deposits in the barrel. Another consideration is to ensure the bullet diameter is compatible with the bore of the barrel and in the case of a revolver, the throat diameter of the cylinder. There are several ways to remove lead from the barrels and throats of handguns. All have some pros and cons. I’ll list them in the order of my preference and you can choose which one best fits your particular needs.
