Sociologist Jennifer Carlson interviewed a bunch of police chiefs about their views on guns. I’m going to interview her about that tonight.

For observers familiar with Canada’s long–gun registry, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s scheme to implement his “assault weapons” ban is already giving off a whiff of déjà vu. Under the Trudeau government’s ban and confiscation program announced on May 1, over 1,500 firearms and devices listed in a government regulation immediately became a “prohibited” firearm or
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want to ban certain types of semi-automatic firearms that are rarely used in crimes. These firearms are also commonly owned; estimates from 2018 peg the number owned in the U.S. at more than 16 million. So why are Biden and his would-be Florida man, Michael Bloomberg, so focused on these
The gun control segment of billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s left-wing political apparatus isn’t feeling the courage of their purported convictions these days. Understanding that their message of civilian disarmament won’t play with an electorate wracked with concerns over COVID-19, a spike in violence in many jurisdictions, and politician-tolerated civil unrest, Everytown for Gun Safety has used

Here at the Hickory Hall Polo Club in Whitestown, polo players atop thoroughbreds thwack a ball around a 300-yard-long, 160-yard-wide stretch of carefully groomed green grass. The sun dips in the August sky. Alongside the field, families and

New Jersey gun owners received a bit of good news recently when the Legislature sent the budget to Gov. Phil Murphy, and it did not contain the revenues from massive hikes the executive had earlier proposed on firearm permitting fees.  Murphy had unsuccessfully proposed these Draconian fees before.  Unrelenting, his 2020 budget proposal would have
Since the night police burst into Breonna Taylor’s apartment, her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, has said he did not hear officers announce their presence. When he shot in their direction, he maintains, he thought it was intruders breaking in. Police have stated otherwise, insisting they announced their presence and rightfully returned fire — sending over a
STEPHENVILLE — Metal chairs scraped the floor after Shelley Luther urged her audience to scoot closer.

Donald Trump this morning retweeted some 16 pro-gun messages, following alarm over his remarks about handing over power if he loses November’s election.
