The days are getting shorter, nights are getting cooler and tree-stands are being moved into place. For bow hunters, the long wait is nearly over. Iowa’s archery deer season begins Oct. 1. “Our deer population has been relatively stable, keeping things consistent. I’m expecting hunters to have a pretty good fall,” said Jim Coffey, forest wildlife biologist for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. Iowa’s world renowned deer herd is the result of a beneficial partnership between hunters, landowners and local wildlife staff all working together.

A judge has approved a request for city police to destroy about two dozen guns, one of which has been in the evidence room for 29 years. Some of the weapons were used to commit crimes, others for suicide and others are a mystery, such as two Glock handguns with consecutive serial numbers found in the Winnipesaukee River in April 2007. The court initially stalled the request from the Belknap County Attorney’s Office, asking for more details such as docket numbers and the disposition of the criminal cases. The county also was required to try to contact any known rightful gun owners.

Six veteran Georgia professors are seeking an injunction to stop the state’s new law that allows licensed permit holders to carry concealed guns on certain areas of public college campuses, saying it’s dangerous to students and faculty and unconstitutional. The professors hope to overturn the controversial guidelines using a legal argument that the “campus carry” law usurps the University System of Georgia’s constitutional authority over its campuses. Their complaint was filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court against Gov. Nathan Deal and Georgia Attorney Georgia Chris Carr.

Clarification about the carrying of concealed weapons into municipal recreation centers is part of a ruling from Kanawha County Circuit Judge James Stucky on a case the West Virginia Citizens Defense League filed against the City of Charleston. That ruling, issued last week, finds that “individuals with a valid license to carry a concealed weapon” may legally take their gun into a municipal recreation center that is “not leased or used by the Board of Education for school activities, events or functions” if it is securely stored.

Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear it in the news. What would you do in their situation?
-You’re at home with your children. You hear a tearing sound coming from your children’s bedroom. A man has torn out the window fan and is climbing through the window next to your kids.
-You work at a Circle-K gas station. A man walks in wearing a ski mask, carrying a bag, and holding a gun. He points the gun at you and tells you to put the money into the bag.
-You and your wife are at home. Your wife answers a knock at the door, and she is thrown back into the room as two young men smashed their way inside.

Today’s savvy shooting enthusiasts are looking for products that offer much more than those of a generation ago—more powerful optics, more precise rifles capable of tighter groups at longer distances and, in general, more bang for the buck. Yet despite many advances in production methods, materials and accessories, the devices we use to move defensive pistols from Point A to Point B have remained essentially unchanged. Today’s belt holsters may be made of thermo-molded polymer instead of leather—but they’re still belt holsters.

Three gun shops in the Grand Rapids area were broken into within a matter of hours from Saturday night to early Sunday morning, officials said Monday afternoon.

Grand Rapids police responded to two break-ins within hours of each other late Saturday, Sept. 23.

Glass doors were smashed about 10:30 p.m. at Rylee's Ace Hardware at 1234 Michigan St. NE and a glass window was smashed and doors were broken at 11:57 p.m. at Bachelder Master Gunmakers at 700 Plymouth Ave. NE.

No guns were taken in either incident as suspects were unable to gain access to the weapons, police said.

However, more than a dozen handguns were stolen from Barracks 616 at 5740 Foremost Drive SE just after midnight early Sunday morning in Cascade Township.

Sterling Heights firefighters used heavy-duty cutting tools to free three young children who accidentally locked themselves inside a gun safe.

The safe had recently been delivered and was in the garage of the home in Sterling Heights. Fire Chief Chris Martin said the children, who are 3 and 4 years old, apparently crawled inside the safe Sunday afternoon and it locked.

Instructions for the safe and the combination were inside the safe with them. It took about 12 minutes to get them out using a hydraulic spreader and saws.

The children were checked out at the scene and appeared to be OK. The children later toured the fire station, where they thanked their rescuers.

My colleague Helen Ubiñas was stunned when she went out last year and bought an AR-15 rifle in only seven minutes, including a background check. There’s no reason the law-abiding Ubiñas should not have been able to buy a rifle easily, because gun ownership in the United States of America is a right, but the column still caused a sensation.

The Virginia gubernatorial and attorney general races remain close, despite the influx of cash provided to both Democratic candidates by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control advocacy group.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down... a person cannot be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)
