AK: Transitioning from a shotgun to a rifle takes an attitude adjustment
Submitted by: Corey Salo

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
Rifle shooting is said to be a science and wingshooting is said to be an art. If my grades in high school were any indication of which I would prefer, the aesthetic history of shotguns is illustrated in rich oils on canvas and filled with fine pointing dogs and the colors of wild game birds. In comparison, the systematic approach of the rifle marksman or still hunter appeared at odds with my tendency to prefer a more intuitive style of shooting.

This is not to say there is not a practical side to shotguns. My favorite over/under shotgun with a wood stock is not just classic looking, its operation is simple. I don't worry about ejection ports, shell carriers, magazines, gas pistons, stock springs or nuts and bolts.

The NRA announced it is endorsing pro-gun candidate Marsha Blackburn (R) over D-rated Phil Bredesen in Tennessee Senate race.

Bredesen was recently rebuked by NRA-ILA’s Chris Cox over an ad that made it appear Bredesen had a good rating from the NRA. On September 21 Breitbart News reported that Cox asked Bredesen to “stop lying” and pointed out that Bredesen’s NRA rating is a D.

Ohio Attorney General and Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine has pulled into a tie with Democratic candidate and former Obama administration official Richard Cordray, according to a new poll.

DeWine, who trailed Cordray by one point in June, is now tied at 47 percent with Cordray in the latest NBC News/Marist College poll. Six percent of Ohio voters are still undecided.

The poll comes the same day that DeWine received some more good news, an official endorsement of his campaign by the National Rifle Association.
 

A Changing Federal Judiciary Offers Hope, but There’s Still Work to be Done

Since the landmark rulings in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago recognized an individual right to keep and bear arms, anti-gun state and local lawmakers have preserved existing unconstitutional schemes and continued to probe the outer reaches of their authority to restrict firearms. Enjoying the tacit or explicit approval of some federal courts, this legislative adventurism has often gone unchecked.

Frustrated gun owners are in good company. In June 2015, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “Despite the clarity with which we described the Second Amendment’s core protection for the right of self-defense, lower courts … have failed to protect it.”

Gubernatorial candidate Mike Dunleavy received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association, the only one of the three candidates for governor to get the endorsement.

“It’s an honor to be endorsed by the nation’s foremost defender of our Second Amendment rights,” said Dunleavy in a statement. “As a lifelong member of the NRA, and as a father, I value the organization’s work in educating Alaskans on gun safety, training, and marksmanship.”

Calling for research, education and evidence-based policy to confront the “public health crisis of the firearm epidemic” in the United States, more than 80 Harvard Medical School students and colleagues rallied on the steps of Gordon Hall on the HMS Quadrangle on Sept. 24.

“As medical students and future health care professionals, we will be charged with taking care of victims, we will face firsthand the disastrous damage firearms can do to the human body,” said Maahika Srinivasan, one of the students who organized the Longwood rally.

Katie Gibson is a self-described “total nerd” on Woodcreek High School’s speech and debate team, with a keen interest in politics. The 16-year-old junior skews liberal in her political views.

Yet just about every Wednesday and Sunday this time of year, she’s got a box of shotgun shells in a pouch on her waist, her Browning shotgun pressed to her shoulder, and she’s shooting spinning clay discs out of the sky.
 

KS: Fatal shooting may have been self-defense during robbery after road rage, police say

Police think a man who was fatally shot in northwest Wichita on Wednesday night was trying to rob the person who shot him.

Officers were called to a reported shooting at around 9 p.m. in the 2700 block of North Amidon and found a man in his 20s lying in the street who was pronounced dead at the scene, Sgt. John Bogle said.

The shooting took place at the same time as a robbery attempt in the street, which may have stemmed from a road rage incident, Bogle said. Police think the man who fired the shots was the victim in the robbery attempt, and the man who was killed was the suspect in the robbery.
 

OH: No widespread changes in gun laws after recent shootings

Shortly after last year’s shooting massacre on the Las Vegas strip, Ohio Gov. John Kasich convened a working group to explore possible reforms to state gun laws.

A Republican, Kasich appointed panel members who supported the Second Amendment and came from across the political spectrum. Their work accelerated after the Valentine’s Day slaughter at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

They eventually produced a legislative package that included what Kasich called “sensible changes that should keep people safer.” The legislation was introduced by a Republican lawmaker in the GOP-dominated Legislature.

It went nowhere.
 

Despite shootings, states return to familiar patterns

An Associated Press review of gun legislation passed across the country this year finds that states mostly reverted to predictable and partisan form, even after the Las Vegas strip massacre and the Florida high school shooting.

Florida was an outlier, with a Republican governor and Republican Legislature agreeing to a wide-ranging package of gun control measures.

No other GOP-dominated state followed its lead. Instead, many Republican-led states expanded gun rights.

They widened the definition of who can legally carry a weapon in public, and allowed more concealed weapons in schools, churches and government buildings. GOP states also strengthened legal protections for people who claim they shot someone in self-defense.

You may also have heard that women are increasingly applying for concealed pistol licenses to use for self-defense. While most of them will never need to fire the pistols, just the presence of a firearm can ward off assault. Vincent Buys supports our Second Amendment, allowing women to protect themselves however they feel will be most effective for them.

We need to have Rep. Buys in Olympia to ensure that sexual assault is prevented and prosecuted, and that women are allowed to protect themselves and make themselves safe in their own community.
 

Popular 10 mm no match for classic magnum revolvers

As most of us know, the introduction of the .41 magnum came several years after that of the .44 magnum was introduced in the early 1950s. I’ve owned several .41s over the years. In my humble opinion, the .41 magnum hits nearly as hard as it’s big brother, the .44 magnum, but with two thirds the recoil. But that’s just me.

All of which brings us to the 10 mm pistol. Razor Dobbs and other TV commandoes have exalted the 10 mm chambering to the high heavens as the answer for bad mannered bears, feral hogs and mother moose. Several gun writers of national note have chimed in supporting it as a caliber that hits way above its weight class.
 

How Red States Stifle Blue Cities

Tallahassee is hardly alone. Across the country, the past few years have witnessed a spike in state preemption of local authority—every state except one has at least one such law on the books and nearly three-quarters of states have three or more. In the past year alone, 19 new preemption laws were passed in different states. The effort has been quiet, but nonetheless coordinated and precise: In many states, particularly conservative ones, preemption law has rendered left-leaning local policy-making largely impotent. It has revealed yet another way Republicans have paralyzed government, while underscoring the need for progressives to win back not just Congress, but statehouses across the country.

A judge has ruled that a Lincoln ordinance can't bar a man from possessing a firearm just because he's been found guilty of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Judge Kevin McManaman of Lancaster County District Court last week overturned a county court conviction of 25-year-old Evan Bell, saying the ordinance violated Bell's right to keep and bear arms.

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today announced its endorsement of Attorney General Mike DeWine for governor and Secretary Jon Husted for lieutenant governor.

"Mike DeWine and Jon Husted support our right to keep and bear arms," said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF. "Ohioans can trust Mike DeWine and Jon Husted to protect their constitutional right to self-defense."

As attorney general, DeWine signed "friend of the court" briefs in several landmark cases, including Peruta v. California, which argued that the Second Amendment protects the right to carry a firearm outside the home for self-defense.
 

HI: Usual Suspects File Briefs Supporting Hawaii Open Carry Ban

On Monday, gun-grabber special interests filed “friend of the court” briefs and declarations to argue against the right to bear arms in the case of Young v. Hawaii, challenging the state’s effective ban on open carry by the whole people. The filers oppose a Ninth Circuit Court panel ruling “that the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment guarantees a right to openly carry a gun in public for self-defense, finding that Hawaii overstepped its authority to regulate firearms possession outside the home.”

The push for open carry is being made because the state has effectively slammed the door on concealed carry. What else is there?

The FBI released new homicide data this week, and at the nationwide level, the 2017 homicide rate fell slightly, dropping to 5.3 homicides per 100,000 from 2016’s rate of 5.4.

According to the report, there were 17,284 homicides in 2017. For context: drug overdoses killed 63,632 Americans in 2016 and more than 37,000 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents in 2016.

The US homicide rate remains down considerably from the 1990s, when the homicide rate reached 9.8 per 100,000 in 1991:

Ten Oregon counties, including Columbia County, will have the chance to defend the Right to Keep & Bear Arms in the general election on November 6, 2018.

County voters have the opportunity to vote for a new ordinance Measure 5-270, the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance. It will establish further protections for the rights of law-abiding citizens. The new law will authorize the Sheriff to use his discretionary powers to prioritize the use of his department’s resources in the enforcement of state and federal firearm laws that infringe on the rights enumerated in the Second Amendment.
 

WA: Seattle Police Officer On How 'Red Flag Laws' Have Helped Prevent Gun Violence

Red flag laws allow police to remove guns from an owner if they pose a risk to themselves or others. After the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, eight states passed the laws, bringing the total of states that have them to 13.

Sgt. Eric Pisconski is in charge of the Seattle Police Department's crisis response team, and has been dealing with the laws ever since the Washington legislature approved them in 2016.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Our Founding Fathers were proud that Americans were trusted with arms because they knew that only when people are armed could they truly be thought of as free citizens. And that's where the circle closes. Those who want to deprive you of your right to keep and bear arms are intending to deprive you of your freedom, period. Like the criminals their policies encourage, these elitists know that it is always best to disarm victims before you enslave them. — Charley Reese
