Hoping to reduce firearm injuries and deaths, Grand Rapids spent $40,000 and Oakland County spent $45,000 to buy used guns from the public last year.

This year, a gun rights group rattled the eight police departments involved, demanding to know everything about the guns they received, including the names of those who turned them in. Grand Rapids conducted its event as “no questions asked”; IDs weren’t required. But Oakland County required all participants parting with guns to provide their names and addresses, according to Michigan Open Carry, a statewide gun rights group based in Lansing.

Gun ownership is stepping in to help bridge a safety gap in New Mexico’s vast Indian country, according to gun experts in the state.

“No one is coming to save you” is a motto among Native Americans in New Mexico, according to Joe Talachy, a Pueblo of Pojoaque tribal officer who owns one of the few Native-founded gun stores in the U.S.

Talachy joined law enforcement in 2005, before serving as lieutenant governor and then governor of the Pojoaque Pueblo, notching a total of 11 years in tribal leadership. Now, he’s back in law enforcement and opened Indigenous Arms 1680 Ltd. Co., where locals have flocked to arm themselves against the unforeseeable and sign up for gun safety classes.

Gun sales in the United States have hit record-highs in recent years – and the increase appears to be driven, at least in part, by concerns over personal safety. According to an October 2021 Gallup poll, 88% of gun owners in the U.S. have a firearm for protection against crime – up from just 65% in the year 2000. The evolving consumer market has brought meaningful changes to the firearm industry.

Currently, the biggest trend in firearms design is the ultra-compact, polymer-framed 9mm handgun feeding from a double-stack magazine – and now Ruger has entered the fray with its MAX-9. And from a glance, the pistol looks great. But is Ruger simply chasing a trend, or are they looking to dethrone the designs that currently dominate the market? Let’s take a closer look at the Ruger MAX-9 and find out.

Vivek Ramaswamy says convicted felons should be allowed to carry weapons.

Appearing on former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s podcast, set to air on Thursday, the Republican presidential candidate was asked to flesh out what it meant to be a “Second Amendment absolutist,” as Ramaswamy has labeled himself.

“Everyone has a gun?” asked Cuomo, once a prominent figure in Democratic Party politics. “Everyone has an assault weapon? A former felon? No background check? Concealed carry?”

CO: Best intentions make the worst policy

The best of intentions often precede the drafting of the worst policies. Senate Bill 23-169 is no deviation from that rule. The desire to end gun violence — especially when it victimizes our children — is a universal cause. The unjustified ending of life is not only the gravest violation of liberty but violates our shared morality as a nation.

Though raising the age to own a firearm to 21 seems to check the boxes on paper, it falls short in both effectiveness and principle.

Michigan State University is poised to amend its weapons ordinance, nearly seven months after a shooter killed three students and injured five others on campus and about six weeks after an appeals panel ruled universities can set their own firearms regulations.

The proposed new firearms or weapons ordinance is on the agenda for Friday's Board of Trustees' meeting.

MSU spokesman Dan Olsen confirmed the board will consider a resolution intended to "provide clarity" on the school's weapons policy. He declined further comment.

"A lot of the folks on it were denied their Second Amendment rights to bear arms," Driver said. "They were denied employment with many different city agencies."

Routine traffic stops also often take on a whole new tone for anyone in the database.

Special Counsel David Weiss has reportedly said he plans on indicting the president's son over a federal firearm charge. Turley said on "The Story" Thursday that to fight it, Hunter Biden could argue that the law backing the charge is unconstitutional. The problem is his father, President Biden, supports the law.

The Austin American Statesman is reporting that a jury in Williamson County has acquitted a woman on a murder charge in the June 2019 shooting death in Round Rock of a former Jasper man. Jurors found Ty’Esha Tanner not guilty of murdering 40-year-old Justin Silas.

Tanner’s defense attorneys painted a picture for jurors of Tanner shooting Silas in self-defense due to Silas being a very controlling person and subject to bursts of outrage.

During the trial, the report said that the defense brought forth Tanner’s friends who testified that Silas wouldn’t allow them to speak to her. They also testified that he had injured the family dog and it was feared that he would actually kill the dog.

In previous articles I’ve written about Situational Awareness, Command Presence, and the Mindset as it relates to planning and preparing for possible life-threatening events. These are very important aspects of surviving deadly encounters but the core to your defense relies mainly on one specific tool. This tool is carried with you every day no matter where you are or what you are doing. The tool is the basis for everything you do in a self-defense situation or everything you decide not to do, depending on the scenario. This tool is your brain, and more importantly, how you allow your brain to function.

A federal appeals court on Thursday gave two gun owners another shot at blocking California's restrictions on openly carrying firearms in public, citing a major U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year that expanded gun rights.

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a lower-court judge applied the incorrect legal standard when she declined last year to issue a preliminary injunction barring enforcement of California's law.

Thinking about a successful hunt, most of us go right to the weapon. Which rifle and caliber would be best for my chosen prey? Which crossbow and bolt combination would ensure a clean kill? Equally as important to the hunt itself is what happens after the shot has been taken. All of that work means nothing if you can’t remove your fresh meat from the wilderness. Having the right tools to dress your animal in the field is crucial, especially when your intended target is large. Perfect for skinning and dressing, as well as many other tasks, a good blade can make for far better results and far less cursing.
