Anything of real value we lock in safes at night so they can’t get to it.”

When you go to a park with your children you don't expect to see someone with a gun. The thought of it is kind of scary, said grandmother Alicia Dawkins. That's why New Orleans Rep. Jimmy Harris is trying to get a bill passed to ban guns at parks, playgrounds, and recreational facilities. They would be treated like schools and be considered gun-free zones, making the penalty steeper if you are caught with a weapon.

The electromagnetic railgun developed by BAE Systems for the U.S. Navy has a lot going for it. It is smaller than a conventional cannon. It can fire a projectile up to 4,600 mph, or around Mach 6. It uses no gunpowder or chemical propellants, eliminating the need to carry dangerous explosives on a warship. The weapon has the potential to hit a target over 100 nautical miles away.

Never Go Full California on Guns

You can’t name a gun control proposal the California Socialists haven’t passed. Of course, these laws only disarm the honest people and have no effect on violent crime. Bigoted gun laws disarm the innocent victims, not the thugs. That is a fact everywhere. Meanwhile, the Socialist politicians in California continue to blame the victim.

Learn from others’ mistakes.. and never go full California.

Monday night, The Kern High School District board will consider possible changes to its rules on bringing guns to schools. Members will look at policies for people holding concealed weapon permits, or CCWs. However, the board was not to take up any changes yet that could affect teachers or staff. It's not clear when that could happen. "At this point tonight, all they're going to be considering is their nonschool employees," district spokeswoman Lisa Krch told Eyewitness News Monday afternoon.

Along with community partners, they’re holding a Safe Gun Storage event this Saturday to give away more than 350 lock boxes and other storage aids to local gun owners.

The Guardian's Written Portrait of Cody Wilson

Cody Wilson doesn’t look dangerous. There’s a slight gap between his two front teeth, a bit of an underbite. Around his middle, the beginnings of a paunch, visible through his fitted grey denim. Clutching an iPhone in one hand, a cup of strong black coffee in the other, he’s not exactly menacing – until he looks at you. His eyes are searching, hard, darting around the West Hollywood cafe. Brown eyes that seem a touch nervous, and tired. Wilson has been labeled one of the most dangerous people in the world – twice. He quotes philosophers like Nietzsche and Foucault and calls himself a crypto-anarchist, a digital radical. He’s hung with Julian Assange, appeared on Showtime, Vice and documentaries like Deep Web. He likes to be the bad guy.

A muslim graduate student killed his teacher at the University of California, Los Angeles. The graduate student broke dozens of ineffective laws. California Socialist politicians then called for more ineffective laws that burden honest California gun owners. That is ugly bigotry.

The blame rests with the voters who elected these bigoted politicians. Speaking to the Socialists voters in California, YOU created this monster. The blood of disarmed victims is on your hands.

They're simple, plastic toys, but they could be very dangerous, or even deadly, in the wrong situation or setting. That's what an activist and families in Newark are saying about toy guns that are designed to look realistic. Some residents of Newark, a city that's no stranger to violent crime, told PIX11 News that their streets are the sorts of places where toy guns, particularly ones that can be altered to look even more real, have no place.

We all know how dangerous a Pop Tart can be when a kid takes a bite out of it and runs around pretending it’s a gun. Little girls must be punished for bringing their Princess Anna bubble-guns to school, endangering everyone. And who wants to live in a world where a youngster can go to school wearing a t-shirt honoring our armed forces? Not me. For the sake of future generations, we must vigilantly safeguard the innocence of today’s children.

A shipment of Kalashnikov rifles, popularly known as AK-47s, was destined for the United States when it was stopped and quickly rerouted to Venezuela. Washington had just slapped Moscow with sanctions over the Ukraine crisis, and the Russian gun maker Kalashnikov Kontsern suddenly found one of its biggest markets off limits. Without access to the ready buyers among American weapons enthusiasts, Kalashnikov had to change its strategy, an increasingly common challenge for Russian companies after the imposition of sanctions.

If ever there were a year to reform gun laws in South Carolina, this was it. Too bad it didn’t happen. It was less than a year ago that nine people were shot to death as they studied the Bible at Emanuel AME Church. The gun allegedly used in those murders was purchased only because of a clerical mistake in processing the background check of the man charged in that crime.

But Randall said she began adjusting the resolution over the weekend, before she was aware of the LCRC's outspoken opposition.

It’s no secret: Texans, by and large, like their guns.
They hunt year-round, hit targets at the range and show them off. Mass shootings and anti-gun talks have forced many to pull the trigger on buying their first firearm. A newly opened McKinney business wants to make sure the real trigger works when it’s time to shoot.
