The 99 signs he has posted throughout the region — each including a phone number, the silhouette of a Rambo-style M60 machine gun and an advertisement for "Washington County Machine Gun Rentals" — has generated many a phone call to Tredd Barton. Some people are angry. Others are curious. Yet others are amazed over the opportunity to fire a fully automatic machine gun — an MP5, Tommy Gun, AK-47, or M16, among many others — for a price.

We got a little older, and my brother and I really got into shooting and dealt even more into the world of shooting guns.”

Some even said the companies seem to care more about rider safety than drivers.

The government of Sudan is facing international pressure to release Noura Hussein, a 19-year-old Sudanese girl sentenced to death for killing her husband after he repeatedly raped her. Using the Twitter hashtag #JusticeForNoura, activists around the world including celebrities have been pressurizing the Sudanese government to release her unconditionally. Like it is the case with many girls in Sudan, or even in neighboring Uganda, Noura Hussein was given away for marriage to a man twice her age while at the mere age of 16. She was resistant to the idea and preferred education to marriage. Seeing her father was determined to marry her off, she ran away from home and went to live with a relative about 155 miles away.

Fox News is reporting that cross country serial killer Ted Bundy’s former defense attorney contended that his client was “absolutely born evil,” which may help explain the trail of bodies he left from the Pacific Northwest to Florida in the 1970s.

The attorney, famed criminal defense lawyer John Henry Browne, appears in a Bundy documentary on the Oxygen channel’s “In Defense Of” series that focuses on relationships between “notorious defendants and their attorneys,” the story explains. According to Fox, the report airs this Sunday evening, July 15 at 8 p.m. on Oxygen.

Few civil rights leaders confronted Jim Crow more effectively before the rise of Martin Luther King Jr. than T.R.M. Howard (1908-1976). His commanding presence and impressive achievements made him hard to ignore. A respected surgeon, Howard was one of the wealthiest African Americans in Mississippi and headed a successful mass movement for equality under the law. From the beginning, armed self-defense was as an essential component of the struggle.

The "come and take it" mantra of gun-rights activists has taken on new meaning thanks to an Austin resident's recent settlement with the U.S. government. With a green light from the State Department, Cody Wilson is inviting anyone who wants access to his code to create firearms using a 3-D printer to, well, come and take it. But don't mistake this for a Second Amendment triumph, one of Wilson's lawyers says. It's more about the First.

Imagine civilians legally packing pistols as they stroll the streets of San Francisco and Los Angeles. Or health care that is harder for Californians to obtain or even afford. Or air in the Central Valley with higher concentrations of methane gas, or county jails across the state that have no recourse but to allow federal agents inside for an immigration search. None of these changes is guaranteed. But they’re all potential effects of a rightward shift in the U.S. Supreme Court, with the addition of President Trump’s newest nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge in Washington, D.C.

Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle earned the NRA’s endorsement after he followed through on his vow to “kill” a tax break for Delta Air Lines. And the Second Amendment rights group rewarded him on Saturday for that headline-grabbing move. National Rifle Association President-elect Oliver North stumped with Cagle at three events around the state, saying it backed him over Secretary of State Brian Kemp in the July 24 runoff because Cagle had an “airtight record” on firearms issues that led lawmakers to rebuke the Atlanta-based airline.

It was the fifth question in. And they’ve answered it before. Many times before. “How do you respond to the argument that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun?” The students onstage paused and looked out over the audience of 1,200 faces eagerly waiting for a response. Ryan Deitsch spoke first: “That argument is not saying, ‘We need to stay safe. We need to stay protected. We need to save our lives.’ It’s saying, ‘Let’s add more guns to the situation.’”

At the entrance to the Del Mar Fairgrounds, a young woman wearing an anti-gun violence shirt played a flute while, across the street, two men waved a 5-foot-tall cutout of a black AR-15 semiautomatic rifle at passing cars. That was the kind of contrast visible Saturday morning to those who attended the Crossroads of the West Gun Show, which was expected to draw thousands of firearm enthusiasts this weekend.

Kayla Dunham has found people she considers family in her school’s JROTC classes.

She’s going into her senior year at Snohomish High School and credits the program with helping her succeed.

“It’s probably one of the best experiences I’ve had in my life,” she said.

“If I did not join ROTC, I can honestly tell you, I would not be here now.”

From Monday through Friday this week, the high school hosted students from all over the Northwest at an air rifle camp. The teens work on leadership skills, positive thinking and their shooting aim. They use air rifles to shoot pellets into electric targets, which give them real-time feedback. The camp is offered through the Civilian Marksmanship Program out of Anniston, Alabama.

Ideally, most of us would carry a full-size pistol with a standard-capacity (15 rounds or higher) magazine, but such guns are often heavy and bulky. So when it comes to carry guns—guns that are carried every day—there has to be compromise, be it in size, power or capacity. Little guns typically get carried when you need them, big guns may be left at home. This week, American Rifleman’s Mark Keefe talks about carry guns with one of the greatest professional shooters of all time—Rob Leatham. Nicknamed “TGO” for “The Great One,” Leatham has notched more 60 world and national championships.

Describing Hammer as “a 79-year-old grandmother and nationally renowned civil rights advocate,” the federal lawsuit filed in U.S. district court in Tallahassee contends four men have made her the focal point of “hate and vitriol” through phone calls, emails and other communications.
