The citizens elected you to office, but now your decisions screwed up the local economy. Working Americans left your city to find jobs.

When you read the papers, or listen outside at night, you’re reminded that drug gangs shoot about 10 people every night. So what do you do?

If you’re a Chicago politician, you blame anyone else but yourself.

Chicago violence totals as of June 27th
Shot & Killed: 213
Shot & Wounded: 1134

Grayson Davey of Anchorage captured a gold medal this week at USA Shooting's Junior Olympics shotgun championships in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Davey, 17, earned his victory in the boys 15-17 age group.

Through five rounds of shooting, Davey posted the highest score among all shooters, regardless of age group. He and Dale Royer, a Montana shooter in the 18-21 age group, both fired scores of 120×125.

Davey has emerged as one of the nation's top young shooters. In October, he collected a surprising victory at USA Shooting's Fall Selection competition in Arkansas, where he beat a top-notch field of senior-level shooters that included an Olympic gold medalist.
 

GA: Man accused of killing father rejects plea deal

At the hearing Thursday, Alex Smith — Workman Jr.’s attorney — said his client remained adamant that he acted only in self-defense, and would not take the plea deal. The deal offered by prosecutors would have included a 10-year sentence, but with time served and the balance on probation, for pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter. Workman Jr. has already spent more than a year in jail.

Smith is filing an immunity motion with the court stating Workman Jr. cannot be prosecuted because he only acted toward his father in self-defense. Assistant District Attorney Liberty Stewart said prosecutors stand by their assertion that Workman Jr. was the aggressor throughout the conflict that led to Workman Sr.’s death.

What Should America Expect from a More Originalist Supreme Court?

Second, look for the court to offer greater clarity on the Second Amendment. Since Heller and McDonald, the Court has essentially gone quiet about gun rights. Left undecided are questions about the extent of the right to bear arms outside the home (implicating carry permits) and the nature and type of weapons precisely protected. If an originalist court follows the late Antonin Scalia’s reasoning that the Second Amendment attaches to weapons “in common use for lawful purposes,” then broad “assault weapons” bans will likely fail.

Well-known conservative Oliver North, the incoming president of the National Rifle Association, will be speaking in Pocatello on Friday evening as part of his goal to double the NRA's membership.

North is the keynote speaker for the Idaho GOP convention, which is being held in Pocatello for the first time in nearly 30 years.

The retired Marine lieutenant colonel said he never passes up an opportunity to "talk to Great Americans" and that's another reason why he's in Pocatello.

Jailed since the April 6 shooting, Mr. Kirby maintained he shot Charles White in self-defense and in defense of Mr. White's girlfriend, Danielle Reddick, who had ended her relationship with Mr. White and had met him at the apartment that day so that he could get his clothes.

Witnesses testified that the 6-foot, 260-pound Mr. White was yelling at Ms. Reddick, had punched a hole in a door, and — after Mr. Kirby walked in from his apartment across the hall — began begging Mr. Kirby to shoot him.

When Mr. White suddenly turned around and lunged toward Ms. Reddick, Mr. Kirby did just that, firing one shot that struck him in the abdomen. Mr. White died the next day.
 

The Air Force is arming pilots with this longer-range, stand-off rifle to use if they’re ever shot down

The Air Force isn’t necessarily known for its small arms programs, but aircrews are about to get a longer range stand-off rifle to use if they are ever shot down behind enemy lines.

The weapon is officially named the GAU-5A Aircrew Self Defense Weapon. It’s a variant of the M4 carbine with a modified quick-release barrel designed by Cry Havoc, according to Maj. Docleia Gibson, an Air Combat Command spokeswoman.

“The [GAU-5A] and four full magazines, 30 rounds [each], must all fit in the ejection seat survival kit,” Gibson said in an emailed statement. “This has driven the dimension of 16 x 14 x 3.5 inches.”

Gonzalez Republican Rebekah Bydlak announced Thursday that she had picked up the endorsement of the National Rifle Association in her bid to succeed term-limited Rep. Clay Ingam in House District 1.

The NRA said it picked Bydlak out of the three Republicans in the primary race due to her “strong support of the Second Amendment, self-defense, and anti-crime issues.”
 

TX: Those who carry on campus should be trained more, WC police chief says

Weatherford College Police Chief Paul Stone said he wants people who conceal carry on campus to be better trained.

Although residents with a license to carry are allowed to do so on campus, additional tactical training could help both police officers and those carrying, Stone said.

“I would want a lot more training to go into the license to carry if you're going to be carrying on campus or training as far as how to respond in those situations on a campus,” he said.

Active shooter incidents are tactically complex, Stone said.

Few who read this magazine are likely to be unaware of the anti-gun leanings of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which for years has worked to treat firearm ownership like it’s a disease that needs to be eradicated. But newly discovered polling by the CDC shows just how far the agency is willing to go to hide evidence of the positive aspects of gun ownership.

To fully explain the recent discovery, a look at the history of defensive gun use research is necessary:

Draft legislation obtained by New Jersey Advance Media indicates New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) will be proposing rate hikes in the cost of gun permits and associated licenses significantly enough to add $1.4 million to the state’s budget. Briebart is reporting the plan includes an eightfold increase in the price of a concealed carry permit—from $50 to $400. With only slightly more than 1,000 issued in the gun-restrictive state, though, the bulk of the money will be milked from the added cost of firearm identification cards, which could go from $5 to $100, handgun permits ($2 to $100) and firearm dealer licenses ($50 to $500).
 

OK: After Court of Appeals decision, Oklahomans will have to choose between guns and marijuana

The Court of Appeals ruled separating guns and marijuana is not a violation of the second amendment.

But as legal pot comes to Oklahoma, gun dealers are wondering the impact of this, such as the family that owns guns but wants to look at alternative medicine.

"Now the wife is ill and she goes and gets a medical marijuana license. Now in the house are the guns and she has the medical marijuana," said David Stone with Dong's Guns and Ammo.

Stone fears this will affect business as well.

If Gov. Greg Abbott actually believes a “red flag” gun law could work in Texas, potentially saving lives while also protecting due process rights, he needs to just come out and say it.

There’s too much at stake for mixed messages, political double-speak, and a lack of commitment. After 10 people were killed in the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School, we need leadership.
 

Let Us NOT Praise Anthony Kennedy

The praise that Justice Anthony Kennedy is getting for being a courageous “swing” vote on the Supreme Court is nauseating. Kennedy clearly knows that whomever Trump nominates to replace him will vote to wipe out the protections for abortion and LGBT rights that Kennedy supported. Whatever praise Kennedy has received for helping chip away at homophobia and patriarchy, he no longer deserves. Thus, his legacy should NOT be his votes on those two issues, but his complicity with Trump to steer the Court even further to the right for at least the next 20 years.

Like everyone else, Brian Nelson is the sum of his experiences, and he has seen more than his share of violence.

To do what he can to counter the violence, Nelson offers a class called "Tactical Defense Systems" which teaches people how to defend themselves in deadly situations. Nelson, who has taught both public and private classes all over Minnesota, puts on classes each month in Perham which can put qualified people on the road to obtaining a permit to carry a concealed handgun.

The president of the national LGBT group Log Cabin Republicans, a gay GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate in Delaware, and a transgender Republican activist from San Diego were among the speakers at a gun rights rally on Tuesday on the front steps of the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Second Amendment Institute, which organized the event, said it was called to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the 2008 Supreme Court decision D.C. v. Heller, which held that the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment guarantees an individual’s right to possess a firearm in the home for self-defense.
 

CA: California Supreme Court throws out bullet stamping lawsuit; sets up second amendment battle

The law requires a set of characters to be stamped in two places on every cartridge fired by a semi-automatic handgun. While it would take relatively little modification to add microstamping to the firing pin, firearms would have to undergo major changes, and use some technology that doesn’t exist, to stamp the casing in a second location.
The state argued that a law should not be struck down simply because it is impossible to implement. Instead, they said, legal requirements often force companies and industries to innovate.
