I don’t own a gun. Let me start by saying that upfront. Let me also say I fully support our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. There are those in our society today who are quick to jump at the chance to take away, or severely limit a law abiding citizens right to bear arms for the perceived protection of society.

Some 80,000 people are expected in downtown Atlanta later this week for the National Rifle Association’s annual conference. It shouldn’t be a shocker that many of them are likely to be lawfully armed and wanting to know where they can legally carry their gun.

Fruitport Township Supervisor Heidi Tice was arraigned in Muskegon County's 60th District Court Monday for allegedly embezzling funds from a gun shop that employed her.

Tice - who on Thursday said she thought the matter would be dropped before her arraignment - appeared before Judge Maria Ladas Hoopes on Monday, April 24.

Tice is charged with embezzlement between $1,000 and $20,000, a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison or up to a $10,000 fine.

Hoopes ordered Tice to have no further contact with her former employer and denied a request to lower Tice's bond to personal recognizance bond.

Tice is not in jail, having posted $2,500 in cash bail shortly after turning herself in April 11, 2017.

The 911 call early Sunday morning was a man shouting: I shot him! I shot him! When Central Falls police pulled up to 4 King St., Mael Vasquez, 20, was on the porch with a gun. He told officers that there was a man in the basement, and Vasquez didn’t know if the man was alive. He wasn’t. Maurice Botelho, 43, was dead. And while Central Falls police charged Vasquez with possession of a stolen gun, the question about whether he will be charged with murder will rest with a grand jury.

A few weeks ago, there was a rally at the Capitol to stand in solidarity for workers' rights. At the last minute, I was asked to bring my portable sound device so those in attendance could hear those who were speaking. I went through the security checkpoint and had it held back — it is not allowed in the Capitol. And that is fine. I’m sure there are good reasons for that rule; the folks working those entrances are there for a purpose and they were doing their jobs.

Why Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. Shareholders Have Nothing to Worry About

Donald Trump's election undoubtedly had a negative impact on gun stocks. It immediately sent shares of Sturm, Ruger (NYSE: RGR) tumbling 26%, a slightly worse drop than what rival American Outdoor Brands (NASDAQ: AOBC) experienced. Yet in the ensuing months, Ruger has gained back much more ground than its rival, remaining just 10.7% below where it traded just before the vote took place, considerably better than the 25% loss the maker of Smith & Wesson firearms is still nursing. The disparity seems to indicate Sturm, Ruger may be in a better position than its industry peer.

On a 32-23 margin, the House gave final approval Monday to legislation which would make it illegal for state or local governments to require the search of any federal or state database before personal property is sold, given away or otherwise transferred.
 

Colt's Cobra: The Wheel, Rediscovered

It is quite simply the stuff of legend. The young seaman watched the ship’s wheel as it indexed before the shaft that supported it. It was—and is—the nature of a ship’s wheel to come back around to exactly the same spot, and Samuel Colt’s inventive mind studied this simple geometric principle with a view toward exploiting it. Eventually, he devised a firearm using a cylinder with five chambers that aligned sequentially with the gun’s barrel. Using the then-new percussion caps to ignite each chamber’s charge of blackpowder in turn, Colt created a style of handgun that dominated battlefields for decades.

Any rational person is likely to assume that a political movement that uses “women’s rights” as a cornerstone issue would be all about empowering women to use a tool that can make them the equal of any man. But instead of backing gun rights, Everytown for Gun Safety, with The New York Times as its megaphone, is spinning the very real issue to make it seem like the solution is to leave potential victims disarmed while telling potential bad guys they can’t legally own or carry a firearm.

The following comments are in partial response to Ms. Tisthamer’s recent letter regarding school safety and HB-194/HEA93 – a full reply would require more than the Enterprise’s 300-word limit. I testified in favor of HB-194, and authored the recommendation on training that was incorporated into the bill. I am now a member of WDE’s HEA93 Task Force, assisting in the creation of policy guidance to assist school districts in implementation of this law. There can be no positive future for children targeted by a killer in the school, when there is no one able to protect them.
