Sportsmen hoping to set their sights on a buck this past hunting season apparently had some pretty good luck as Pennsylvania's antlered deer harvest increased by 15 percent over the previous year. According to figures recently released by the Pennsylvania Game Commission, hunters took 137,580 antlered deer, up from the 119,260 harvested the year before. Also worth noting is the fact that 59 percent of the bucks were 2.5 years or older, making it the highest percentage of adult antlered deer in the harvest in decades.

Hormann's attorneys told jurors that the eye doctor feared for his life and for the lives of his guests when he followed Smith off the lake property and into the street.

On April 8, former Playmate Stephanie Adams received her long-awaited gun permit and purchased a .50 caliber Desert Eagle handgun to keep in her home for self-defense. Adams was Playboy’s Miss November in 1992. In April 2015, Breitbart News reported Adams was in a back-and-forth with the New York Police Department in which she suggested they were denying the issuance of her gun permit due to a personal animus. She suggested this animus was the result of a $1.2 million excessive force judgment she won against the NYPD in 2012. And the Daily Mail reported the NYPD “Licence Department also used a sexy picture posted on the Internet of Adams wearing a skimpy mock police uniform and holding a gun as a reason to deny her.”

Paul and Kristin Sadler retired to the bedroom of their rural Clay County home one evening last month, and, as usual, their trusty Doberman pinscher named G followed. As they settled into sleep, G jumped to his feet and ran barking from the bedroom. The Sadlers thought he was aroused by coyotes, and called for him to quiet down and come back, which he did. Fifteen minutes later, G jumped up and ran downstairs again. Then they heard a man’s voice over the dog’s tense barks, saying “whoa … whoa.”

Two police officers were cleared in the March shooting death of a man at 300 E. Rudisill Blvd. The Allen County Prosecutor's office concluded the death of Abraham Martinez, 62, was the result of self-defense, and no charges will be filed. "The officers involved were justified in using deadly force, as they reasonably believed that force was necessary to prevent serious bodily injury or death to the responding officers and innocent civilians," according to a news release from the prosecuting attorney's office.

Hillary Clinton ripped into US Sen. Bernie Sanders for what she said was his pass-the-buck stance on gun control, and said the rural Democrat isn't taking into account how many weapons flow from his state into New York. Clinton, speaking in an emotional rally in Long Island alongside families of violence victims, touted her own record fighting against a bill that made it impossible for people to sue gun manufacturers when their weapons are used in mass killings like Sandy Hook.

The head of Michigan Open Carry Inc. says the managers of DeVos Place convention center failed to produce a policy that backs up their March 11 threat to arrest members who were opening carrying weapons at a trade show.

"After weeks of calls, a public meeting, and even a Freedom Of Information Act request, no documentation of any duly-authorized policy has been produced," said Tom Lambert, president of the group in a statement on Monday, April 11.

Lambert released the results of a Freedom of Information Act request to the Grand Rapids-Kent County Convention/Arena Authority (CAA), the public authority that owns and operates DeVos Place from his group and the Michigan Gun Owners.
