It’s a good thing politicians offer us so many examples of how they really feel about our rights. Take Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ). He was recently recorded threatening to call the police on a reporter, and now, he’s reiterated his antipathy for freedom of speech while reaffirming his loathing for the right to keep and bear arms. Reason’s Brian Doherty notes that on March 7, Big Boy Bob issued a self-congratulatory press release calling on Twitter’s bearded CEO wonder, Jack Dorsey, to pull Tweets from a user who offered links to “downloadable blueprints to 3-D printed firearms”, and to prevent future posts of such information.

New Jersey's attorney general announced a lawsuit Friday against a California company that sells mail-order firearms parts that can be turned into working weapons, the first such action the state has taken since it banned so-called "ghost guns" last year. The lawsuit filed Thursday alleges that Apple Valley-based U.S. Patriot Armory and owner-founder James Tromblee Jr. violated New Jersey's consumer fraud laws when it advertised and sold gun parts to an undercover investigator last month.

Four rural Nevada counties are balking at a new state law calling for strict background checks, with elected lawmakers voting to join a "Second Amendment sanctuary" drive affecting sheriff's offices and statehouses in several Western U.S. states. The Lyon County Commission on Thursday followed the Nye, Douglas and Elko county boards voting to tell Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak and the newly Democratic-majority state Legislature they believe gun owners should be free to share or sell weapons without undergoing strict new background checks due to go into effect in January.

Following the disbandment of the Continental Army in 1784, the United States kept only a token force of regulars to guard arsenals and frontier forts along the border. In the fledgling years of the American Republic, the government struggled to balance national-security needs with the inherent distrust Americans held toward standing armies. Tied up in this tug-of-war was the establishment of national armories for the production and storage of U.S.-made military arms.

An Illinois judge has issued a permanent injunction against the Village of Deerfield, Illinois prohibiting that jurisdiction from banning so-called “assault weapons” and thus granting a victory to the Second Amendment Foundation, which sued the town in 2018 over the ban. SAF was joined by the Illinois State Rifle Association and Deerfield resident Daniel Easterday, a lawful firearms owner. They were represented by Glen Ellyn attorney David Sigale.

With the bombshell revelation that slain Kittitas County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Thompson was killed by a man who was in the U.S. illegally, many in the firearms community are now wondering how long it will take certain authorities and the Seattle-based gun prohibition lobby to blame “lax gun laws” for the tragedy.

The gunman, identified as Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, came to the U.S. legally on a work visa in 2014, crossing the border at Laredo, according to published reports.
 

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.

Have you ever noticed that when two, or more, people witness something scary or threatening, they seem to step closer together? I suppose that is just human nature, and we seek safety in numbers. But, for you and your armed partner, that can be a real mistake when you are faced with a violent criminal attack. Just about the last thing you want to do is to create one target for your attacker.

Two years ago, Kystie Phillips shot and killed a man who was in a scuffle with a conservation officer in front of her house in Indiana's Ohio County, as the officer's son watched. Without her action, she worried that officer would be killed. "If all I did was stand by and watch, as so many people tend to do these days, as far as I’m concerned, the blood of the fallen officer would be on my hands too, as his son watched," Phillips said in a committee hearing on Wednesday.

Savannah Lindquist desperately tried to remember what she’d learned in the women’s self-defense class. She jerked her wrists, fighting to break her attacker’s grasp. She couldn’t. He’d come over for a movie and a beer, and now he was pushing himself on her as she screamed at him to leave. They struggled across her North Philadelphia apartment, which she’d moved into that fall for her senior year. She got close enough to the counter to grab her key ring, the one with the bright red whistle emblazoned with a white Temple University “T.” She blew the whistle. No one came.

ND: Understanding the Vast Array of North Dakota's Hunting Licenses

Last year, North Dakota hunters submitted a record number of applications for moose, elk and bighorn sheep licenses.
This was a bit of a curiosity because it was the first time the North Dakota Game and Fish Department had made the application process all-electronic for moose, elk and sheep, meaning paper applications were not used. There was some anticipation that license applications might go down a bit because of that, but apparently these once-in-a-lifetime licenses are more popular than ever.

An Indiana teachers union is demanding change to active shooter drill protocols after teachers at an elementary school reported that they had been injured when they were shot by Airsoft guns during a recent exercise.

"During active shooter drill, four teachers at a time were taken into a room, told to crouch down and were shot execution style with some sort of projectiles — resulting in injuries to the extent that welts appeared, and blood was drawn," a statement from the Indiana State Teachers Assoc. on Wed. said.

"The training was meant to be realistic — to show what happens if you don't act," he said.

New Zealand has confirmed that it will ban — and confiscate — any firearm that resembles those that were used in the recent terroristic attack. In response, the gun-control movement has taken a break from assuring gun owners that “nobody is talking about confiscation” and set about lionizing New Zealand’s parliament for agreeing to engage in confiscation. In future, we can presumably expect to see similar dance to the one that President Obama performed when he spoke of Australia. To wit: “Why can’t we be more like New Zealand? How dare you suggest I want to do what New Zealand did.”
