Cindy Hyde-Smith is the junior United States Senator from the state of Mississippi. Governor Phil Bryant appointed her to the office in April of 2018 when Thad Cochran resigned from the seat. She won a special runoff election on November 27 against Democrat Mike Epsy. Sen. Hyde-Smith wasn't always a Republican. She represented the 39th district of Mississippi in the state's legislature as a Democrat. It was here where her conservative beliefs fell out of line with the Democratic party. She decided she needed to follow her conscious and switch parties to GOP.
 

Commercial Ammo: The Untold History of Springfield Armory and America's Munitions Factories

To understand how American citizens today can get their hands on ammo, which rolls off the same factory lines as those that supply the world's largest militaries, it's important to first understand how munitions technology developed. Starting in medieval Europe, on a battlefield where a mounted knight in armor could defeat almost any number of peasants, the development of more advanced and accurate ways to destroy enemy personnel and equipment by launching a projectile is one which combines trial and error, scientific ingenuity, and private enterprise.

The gun buy-back program organized by Port Huron’s police department Saturday didn’t quite go as planned.

“It was successful so fast that we ran out of money, and then we had to get our own funds out of the police department,” Port Huron Police Chief Joe Platzer said about halfway through the four-hour event.

It was the first time the department hosted a gun-buyback program, where residents can bring in unwanted firearms in exchange for cash, and Platzer said they hadn’t expected such a high turnout.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that in a single 24-hour period over the past weekend, 24 people were shot in the Windy City, including three adults who died, and that likely brings the 2019 body count to 90-plus.

A running count is maintained by the Chicago Sun-Times, which listed 89 slayings in the city as of April 3. Presumably this past weekend’s fatalities won’t appear until later.

“During the Bosnian War (1992-1995), when you didn’t own guns, you were literally dead. Many learned that painful lesson, the hard way.” ~ From a student and veteran of fighting in Bosnia. “Gun Safety” is the new, and deliberately deceptive, code-word for the forced elimination of the private ownership of guns in America.
 

AR: Sen. Ballinger Retreats — Gives Up on Sstand Your Ground' Bill for This Legislative Session

He retreated. Sen. Bob Ballinger sent his "stand your ground" bill to interim committee for study and vowed it would be back in two years. The bill would have eliminated any responsibility to retreat in face of a threat before using deadly force. Ballinger noted that 31 states had a version of such a law. Critics say it has led to a rise in gun homicides in states such as Florida and Arkansas prosecutors and Gov. Asa Hutchinson had argued that the state's existing self-defense law was strong. No one had produced a case of unfair prosecution of someone who'd used deadly force in self-defense.

Well, who didn’t see this foul up coming? For one, the British leaders who have alienated their people from their unalienable, God-given right to self-defense. Liberal politicians, displaying just how finite their wisdom is, have banned the possession of knives in public. Further, the British government is now considering banning home delivery of knives ordered online.

It bears repeating: Women have joined in legion the ranks of millions of handgun owners, and continue to be the fastest-growing demographic in the firearm industry. Whether our motive is personal protection, home defense or because a dormant sense of empowerment has emerged, matters not. This is not a fleeting trend, nor is it a momentary hashtag movement.
 

Californians Flood Gun Stores When Magazine Ban Is Lifted For One Week

“Do you have standard-capacity magazines in stock?” The salesman at the San Diego GlockStore just laughed. Late last month, federal judge Roger T. Benitez struck down a California law in place since 2000 that banned the sale of gun magazines holding more than 10 rounds. The next day, San Diego firearms owners were jamming the phone lines of every gun store in town, desperate to lay hands on the larger, freshly legal pistol magazines before the People’s Republic of California pulled new shenanigans and made them illegal again.

Everytown for Gun Safety, the bipartisan gun-control organization created and financed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, says it’s spending $200,000 to pressure Florida lawmakers not to allow classroom teachers to carry a gun at school. On Sunday, an Everytown political committee bought full-page newspaper ads in opposition to Senate Bill 7030, a school safety bill that includes a proposal to tweak a controversial but limited provision in last year’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act to train and arm non-instructional school faculty.

Cincinnati, May 1977. The National Rifle Association had come to town with its Annual Meetings and Exhibits, America’s largest gathering and celebration for gun owners and shooters. But there would be a marked difference from previous Annual Meetings, because at this event, a leadership battle would take place in the convention hall. Over the course of the weekend, and especially in one all-night session, NRA members would change the course of their organization’s—and their nation’s—history.
 

MI: Gun Control Debate is Not One-Dimensional

Gun control is not the one-sided argument its proponents claim. In addition to the Second Amendment, there are practical considerations.

For example, as a federal judge in California recognized recently, there is the very real potential for new limits on firearms to be harmful.

California law has banned high-capacity magazines for firearms — those holding more than 10 cartridges or shells — since 2000. The statute enacted then permitted gun owners who already possessed high-capacity magazines to keep them.

But in 2016, both state legislators and Golden State voters decided existing owners of the magazines ought not to have them, either.
