Many consider Indiana a “gun friendly” state. And in recent years there has been an effort to loosen some restrictions the state does impose, but as gun violence escalates there is also push back. At the end of a 2017 special study committee, Indiana legislative staff attorney Akash Burney reviewed the state’s gun laws. “Indiana does not require handgun owners to be licensed or register individual handguns,” Burney read, “Indiana only requires a license if that individual desire to carry a handgun in public.”

Greg Harton: Carry On, Governor Says

Gov. Asa Hutchinson last month chimed in by letter to the Arkansas State Police to offer his opinion that it's legal for people to openly carry handguns within the state's borders. It sounds pretty official when the governor makes such a statement, but it doesn't change the law. The governor doesn't get to pass laws. He can veto them all he wants, but he can't pass one. State law is the responsibility of the 100 members of the state House of Representatives and 35 members of the Arkansas Senate. The governor can have an opinion that all state-owned vehicles should be painted pink, but that doesn't make it law. The same goes for our attorney general.

What makes classic sporting firearms “classic” is either a matter of opinion based on functionality or largely a quality in the eye of the beholder, according to sporting firearms experts. And defining such sporting weapons is no easy task. For most South Carolinians, primarily live bird hunters or trap and skeet shooting enthusiasts, sporting firearms are side-by-side and over-and-under shotguns. Perhaps a few fine-grade rifles for deer and other big game might be included in the mix.

Dr. Roach writes: As I write this, another gun tragedy has taken place in the United States. By the time it gets published, about 1,500 more people are likely to have been killed by guns, many accidentally. Physicians have a responsibility to protect the health of their patients and the public, and I can’t be silent on this any longer.

2017 was a rough year for American Outdoor Brands (NASDAQ:AOBC), both from an operational and a market perspective. Sales plunged as the year went on as demand for guns dropped, and starting in June the stock began a nosedive that doesn't seem to have stopped. As the calendar rolls over to 2018 and investors assess their portfolios, it's worth asking if American Outdoors is a value stock at this point. The answer may surprise you.

In a victory for law-abiding gun owners in the Hawkeye State, the Iowa Supreme Court has scaled back the state’s earlier-enacted ban on guns in courthouses. The state’s high court in late December said it will allow guns to be carried into county courthouses, with some restrictions. The decision is partially up to the local governing bodies, which must file a written request before getting the authority to allow guns in the public areas of their courthouses.

Baltimore, which has shrunk over decades, currently has about 615,000 inhabitants.

Proposition 63, a law approved by voters in 2016, is in effect and it changes the way licensed carriers and vendors will buy and sell ammunition but many aren't too happy with the new rules. The new law will require anyone selling ammunition to have a license from the Department of Justice. Ammunition purchased online will have to go through a licensed ammunition vendor, and no one will be allowed to drive ammunition across state lines.
