MI: Report- Hunting and Fishing Bring Billions to Michigan

Hunting and fishing bring billions of dollars to Michigan annually and more than 170,000 jobs, according to a report released Monday.

The state's new Department of Natural Resources director said the report would help to reframe the conversation about how important hunting and fishing are to Michigan's economy.

The report will influence policy discussions, said Dan Eichinger, director of the DNR. Michigan must prioritize natural resources not just because it’s the right thing to do but because it’s good for the economy, he said.

In the 17 counties that comprise North Central Lower Michigan, including Lake, Missaukee, Osceola and Wexford counties, hunting and fishing have a $960 million economic impact.

Members of the Ohio General Assembly stood firm in their fight to protect the rights of Ohioans to use firearms to protect themselves. That dedication to the rights of everyday citizens won praise from the Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA). And while we can chalk up a point for our Second Amendment rights in the Buckeye State, those who want to exercise their constitutional rights know the fight is not over.

HP Says it won’t Let its 3D Printers Make ‘Ghost Guns’; Experts Dubious

HP Inc. says it won’t allow people to use its 3D printers to manufacture guns, unless they are a licensed firearms manufacturer and are making guns that can be detected by airport security. But the company’s stance is unlikely to have significant impact on the supply of homemade guns. That’s because HP’s 3D printers are primarily for the commercial market, not hobbyists. And printing experts say determined people could probably find their way around HP’s restrictions.

A new bill considered by Indiana state lawmakers would allow those who are legally allowed to carry firearms to have them legally on a church property that also has a school on its property. Republican State Senator Jack Sandlin is one of the sponsors of Senate Bill 88, which he says would give those churches the option to allow its members who aren't law enforcement officers to carry guns into the building even if the church has its own private school.
 

Looking for Common Ground on Gun Ownership

A good friend and I are somewhat at odds on the issue of guns. Let me say that I do not support an outright ban on gun ownership. I grew up in a family where guns were kept in the home, sometimes loaded. But no one of us was ever shot by accident. We were taught at a very early age to respect guns and to use them safely. I have owned a gun since I was in the eighth grade, and until 2017, I had five guns in my house, but not loaded. I sold four of them because I wasn’t using them, and I needed the money. I still have one — just in case.

A lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Lee County Circuit Court against state justice officials that ruled against a plan that would allow public school teachers to be armed for security purposes. The suit is in response to a final agency action that the Department of Criminal Justice Services rendered in August that quashed a proposal to make Superintendent of Schools Brian Austin a conservator of the peace, giving him the authority to have select personnel at schools to carry firearms.

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala says in a letter to a councilman, dated Jan. 9, says he understands the effort to curtail gun violence, but believes the proposed legislation would be unconstitutional.
 

Irish Lewis Light Machine Guns in the United States

When the cargo ship SS Finnmerchant docked at Alexandria, Va., in February 1959, there were 801 Lewis light machine guns on board the ship—in addition to more than 50 pieces of artillery. The artillery included everything from light anti-artillery guns to 60-lb. siege guns, along with their limber/caissons, ammunition and spare parts. There were also more machine guns than just the Lewis guns in the lot. The Irish government had sold all of these guns to the International Armaments Corporation (also known as “Interarms” or “Interarmco”) as scrap metal, and the shipment also contained a potentially significant piece of Irish military history.

A ban on assault weapons. Full legalization of marijuana. A slew of election reforms aimed at enhancing voter access. Those are just a few of the controversial proposals likely to be debated by the 150th Delaware General Assembly just months after lawmakers defeated similar measures – or at least failed to grant them final votes – in 2018.

As recounted in an article in the Winter 2017 issue of Reveille: Ireland’s Military Story magazine, the “Ivy Patch Gun”— a British Mark II 18-pdr field gun— was part of this shipment of artillery and machine guns in 1959. This particular cannon was marked on its breech with the insignia of the Irish Free State forces (a superimposed “FF,” surrounded by a sunburst) and it was one of the first six field guns “loaned” by the British to the fledgling Irish Free State in 1922. It may have been one of the two guns that opened the Irish Civil War, by firing at anti-Treaty “Irregulars” of the Irish Republican Army who had holed up in Dublin’s imposing Four Courts building.

The US House of Representatives proposed universal background checks for firearms owners. Is this a good idea or simply another mistake?

The fundamental failure of a background check is that it looks backward. Mass murder is not a long-term career path. Background checks can’t stop a first-time mass murderer. Here are the most recent examples where background checks failed.

When former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg—the anti-gun billionaire who backs Everytown for Gun Safety and other gun control efforts—announced the other day he might finance his own presidential campaign, a nationally-recognized rights group drew a line in the sand and reminded Bloomberg that the White House and Constitutional rights “are not for sale.”

What makes America unique? We believe it is our approach to personal freedom that's often referred to as the "American Dream" of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. As the sole global superpower – America is the first and only country in history to dominate both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans – our country faces an existential crisis: How to manage the empire while still maintaining the ideals of the republic?

The public ground I hunted last season was seriously crowded. Each state - five in total - that I bowhunted in was busier on the common ground than I’ve ever seen, and it got me thinking. I know public land is the hot ticket right now, with some hunters going so far as saying that if you don’t hunt public dirt you’re cheating, but that can’t fully explain the amount of bowhunters I ran into.
 

Know-How: Make Gun Cleaning Easy

No hunter enjoys putting his guns away for the year. It proves the season is over and, besides maybe a few range sessions during the summer, long months will pass before a deer rifle or duck gun will fire a round again. Perhaps more dreadfully, it means the time has come to attend to the task of cleaning those firearms.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I now think the only way to control handgun use is to prohibit the guns. And the only way to do that is to change the Constitution. — M. Gartner, then President of NBC News, USA Today, January 16, 1992, pg. A9
