The Biden administration confirmed to Fox News Digital that it is withholding critical funds for elementary and secondary schools nationwide with hunting or archery programs in their curriculum. The Department of Education explained in a statement that its funding decisions were based on the plain text interpretation of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA), which

The late Rep. John Dingell played a major role in the rise of the NRA’s lobbying operation in DC. In the 1970s, Dingell advocated for the NRA, in an era where many Democrats backed the group. The New York Times examined a trove of documents which outlined Dingell’s relationship with the NRA. Loading Something is
On Jan. 4 of this year, 8 people including children were mercilessly gunned down and killed by a shooter who then turned the gun on himself to evade capture. This happened in an all-American town of Cedar City, Utah where such things are relatively unheard of. In that the community was shocked goes beyond saying.
Long before the National Rifle Association tightened its grip on Congress, won over the Supreme Court and prescribed more guns as a solution to gun violence — before all that, Representative John D. Dingell Jr. had a plan. First jotted on a yellow legal pad in 1975, it would transform the N.R.A. from a fusty
Alaska Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy on Saturday signed into law a measure that seeks to block state and local officials from closing gun stores during disasters declared by the governor, unless such closures apply to all other businesses. Regarded as a win for Second Amendment supporters and Alaska residents, House Bill 61 — which was
A long-standing bedrock conservative principle has been to minimize government interference in the free enterprise system. It’s a philosophy that holds any mingling between bureaucracy and business should be limited to activity that protects the public’s interests and while also promoting commerce. Yet a group of 15 Republican U.S. senators have gone against the grain

A bipartisan congressional delegation will tour the site of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, where 17 people were killed and 17 injured, before the building is torn down. “You will have the somber experience of touring Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the site of the deadliest high school shooting in our country’s history,” U.S. Reps.
There is an article in the Chicago Reader by Deanna Isaacs published July 12, titled, “What we talk about when we talk about guns,” that makes the point that gun violence is a redundant term. We don’t talk about bomb violence — bombs are inherently violent. So are guns. Violence is the purpose of guns.
New poll shows more than 90% of Ohioans want mandatory background checks for gun buyers. 88% want mandatory training for concealed carry permits. But lawmakers are unlikely to change positions. Ohioans across the political spectrum overwhelmingly support gun safety regulations, including some shot down by Ohio lawmakers, a new statewide survey finds. Roughly nine out
Ronald Reagan’s pronouncement, in his first inaugural address in 1981, that “government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem” marked a signal moment in what has become the most successful political counterrevolution in modern American history. Having won a smashing electoral victory, Reagan acted as if he were the latter-day inverse

North Dakota legalized binary trigger used by Fargo shooter who likely planned mass shooting – InForum | Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo news, weather and sports Lawmakers said they wanted to clarify that the device was legal. Attorney General Drew Wrigley said the binary trigger effectively turned Mohamad Barakat’s long rifle into a machine gun.
TALLAHASSEE — A pending U.S. Supreme Court case could help decide the fate of a Florida law that prevents sales of rifles and other long guns to people under age 21. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday told attorneys for the National Rifle Association and the state that they should wait to
While the category of subcompact so-called “baby Glocks” such as the 9mm Glock 26 and the .45 ACP Glock 36 is a favorite, I wouldn’t consider them to be true “pocket pistols.” Their so-called “Safe-Action” trigger design, though wonderfully conducive to fast and accurate shooting, is simply too much of a liability for holsterless carry.
As our regular readers are aware, I’m very fond of the 9mm Parabellum and .45 ACP pistol cartridges alike, notwithstanding the endless debates about which is the better of the two calibers for self-defense. Ergo, when I did my two separate 19FortyFive articles on the 5 Worst Handguns in each caliber, I must admit I was a
Fifty years ago today, on July 23, 1973, Rufus Edmisten delivered the Nixon subpoena, becoming the first person in US history to deliver a subpoena to a sitting president. It was the height of the Watergate hearings that had consumed the nation that year. What we now refer to as the Watergate Scandal, which would
Snubnose revolvers – affectionately known as “snubbies” – are not fun to shoot, but then again, they’re not supposed to be. As plenty of my fellow gun writers point out, they’re “meant to be carried a lot and shot a little.” They’re certainly amazingly compact and concealable, reliable, and durable as well, as long as
Jay Kaufman, a former state representative, said that “as a citizen, it’s hard to have patience for what looks to be purely political shenanigans that get in the way of the substance.” “On a good day, I am shaking my head in disbelief,” said Kaufman, who now serves on the steering committee of the Coalition

Most importantly it’s the anniversary (OK, maybe not most importantly) of my own marriage to my long-suffering wife.

Another story of a man who used a firearm to protect his life and property will probably send the left into fits, this time as a pizza delivery man in Philadelphia fought off two alleged carjackers on Tuesday. Of course, liberals despise stories of Americans protecting themselves with their legally carried firearms and observing their
Following a week-long trial in early June, U.S. District Court Judge Karin Immergut ruled on July 14 that Oregon’s voter-approved gun safety laws are constitutional under the United States Constitution. On July 17, lawyers for the gun rights groups who challenged the measure filed a notice of their plans to appeal the judge’s ruling. For
GOP chooses gun money over livesFirearms, especially AR-style weapons, are the leading cause of death of children in our country.I’ve heard people ask how many children have to die before we ban these kinds of weapons. I have had to come to the conclusion that Republican politicians don’t care. All they care about is the
Fellow fans of the classic Stanley Kubrick film Full Metal Jacket will recall the “duality of man, the Jungian thing, sir” scene involving Sgt. Joker (Matthew Modine) and the Pogue Colonel (Bruce Boa). Well, as a firearms enthusiast and gun writer, I sometimes deal with the “duality of man” conundrum myself. I am a
There’s just something about .50 caliber weapons; crossing that half-inch threshold has a certain magically, mystically masochistic appeal to us gun enthusiasts. First and foremost, of course, is dear ol’ “Ma Deuce,” the time-honored M2 Browning .50 caliber machine gun. In sniper rifles, you have the Barrett M82A1 and the McMillan TAC-50. In the handgun
A federal judge in Oregon upheld a state restriction on gun ownership that many have called the most stringent in the country. The Friday ruling from U.S. District Court Judge Karin Immergut found that Oregon’s law is in line with the Second Amendment because it is in keeping with a U.S. tradition of “regulating uniquely
An 11% gun and ammunition tax may become a reality for Californians, as AB 28 recently passed the Senate Public Safety Committee. This tax would be in addition to the 10-11% federal tax already in place for all firearm and ammunition purchases. The federal tax helps fund wildlife conservation efforts. AB 28, sponsored by Assemblyman
Tom Elias | California Focus There’s a reason why California has seen fewer mass shootings in recent years than other places like Texas and Kentucky: This state still bans private ownership of military-style AR-15 semi-automatic rifles. Those were the weapons used in school massacres from Sandy Hook in Connecticut to Uvalde, Texas. An AR-15-like gun
