ID: Conservationists Want Hunters To Carry Bear Spray In Grizzly Country

A coalition of conservationists is petitioning Idaho and Wyoming to make hunters carry bear spray when they’re within the Yellowstone ecosystem.

Humans are the leading cause of grizzly bear deaths in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and a lot of those deaths are from hunters.

In 2017, 59 grizzly bears died in the Yellowstone area, and 15 of those were caused by hunters acting in self-defense.

Here’s what happens: A hunter shoots an elk, and then starts to gut the animal.
 

Ruger Single Six Revolver – Still One of the Best Handguns to Own

The Ruger Single Six hearkens back to the popularity of TV Westerns that came with the dawn of television in the households of ordinary Americans in the 1950s. Back then, Ruger was a newcomer to the game–not the giant it is today. Colt stopped producing their legendary Single Action Army Revolver so they could focus on production for World War II contracts. By the time Colt got around to starting production again, Ruger and others showed up with their own single action designs, at the same time when those neat TV shows were generating renewed interest in the guns the cowboys and lawmen carried.

Police announced Friday that the person who shot and killed a 17-year-old Dudley High School senior last month did so in self-defense.

Greensboro Police spokesman Ron Glenn said Friday that investigators believe James David Currie was committing armed robbery when he was shot. Officers said they have no reason to believe the shooter, who has not been named, poses a threat to the community.

California's strict gun laws have been landed in jeopardy after a judge threw out the decades-old ban on high-capacity magazines, sparking a "buying frenzy," a new ban and another court battle.

US District Judge Roger Benitez ordered a halt to the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds in California until the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decides whether to reinstate the state's ban on them.

“We didn’t have any ability to say it wasn’t a self-defense scenario,” Ozanne said Friday. “Obviously, self-defense is an issue. I think that came out of (the police) investigation, which I think we don’t disagree with.”

Self-defense is an issue, Ozanne said, because of a scenario in which Moore displayed a gun first before he was shot.

The NRA mounted a campaign against the act, urging lawmakers to vote against it.

"The gun control lobby and anti-gun politicians are intentionally politicizing the Violence Against Women Act as a smoke screen to push their gun control agenda," NRA spokesperson Jennifer Baker told the Associated Press. Baker insisted the group opposes domestic violence and all violent crime, and told the AP the group annually spends millions to teach Americans how to safely use firearms in self-defense.

Deputies initially said the father shot the son.

The Democratic-controlled Colorado Legislature sent a “red flag” gun bill to the governor’s desk Monday, despite widespread protests from counties and law enforcement officials across the state, including Routt and Moffat counties.

Gov. Jared Polis has already pledged his support for the bill, which passed along party lines from the House of Representatives this week.

The Alaska Human Rights Commission board came down on the side of the agency’s executive director, allowing her to keep her job, but requiring a brief suspension and a public apology for her misdeeds.

Marti Buscaglia was the subject of a state investigation because she harassed and subtly threatened an Alaskan over his truck decal, which she decided was “hate speech.” It was, in fact, the truck owner’s commentary on the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

There are groups and individuals “out there” who have kept the makers of military-style, semi-automatic weapons busy for decades. They enthusiastically, even fervently, declare themselves militia in the sense and under the authority of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Some of them are veterans. None of these groups meet any standard of a military organization with regard to training, sustainment or discipline; their military value is close to zero.

Large-capacity magazines are off the market for California gun owners again.

A federal judge who last week struck down a California law banning high-capacity firearm magazines has agreed to halt temporarily the implementation of his decision while the state prepares to challenge his ruling at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal.

The stay in the ruling means California gun owners cannot buy magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. They can keep large-capacity magazines they own.
 

WA: Washington Sheriffs Stand for Constitution, Against Gun Restrictions

The trend of local police departments and sheriffs' offices kowtowing to the anti-gun crowd — a trend that has been growing for decades — seems to be reversing. Take the state of Washington as an example. Roughly half the sheriffs in the state are flat refusing to enforce a litany of anti-gun regulations that are part of a law passed last fall because those regulations are unconstitutional.
