No Gun Zone ≠ Safe Zone

Federal and state governments have enacted several laws designed to protect children from harm, especially while they are attending school. The enactment of these laws followed some notable school shootings such as the Stockton, California schoolyard shooting (aka Cleveland School massacre) in 1989, during which a gunman killed 5 children and wounded 32 others. The “Gun-Free School Zones Act” was...

NSSF Celebrates President Trump Signing 'Range Bill'

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearms industry trade association, celebrates President Donald Trump’s signing of H.R. 1222, the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act, at The White House. The President signed the NSSF-priority bill May 10, just two weeks after the bill was passed by Congress. “We deeply appreciate President Trump’s swift...

Recent school shooting doesn't fit media narrative

On May 7, 2019 two students conducted an attack on their classmates at the Highlands Ranch STEM School in Colorado. The shooting was quite unusual and doesn’t fit the normal narrative for an active killer who shoots up a school (that’s probably why the story disappeared from the media so quickly). I agree with Samuel Culper when he states that this shooting is less about school violence and more...

A Beginner Takes an Advanced Class and Tells the Tale

Please let me begin by admitting that I attended this class after completing my concealed carry (CCW) class and, at this point, I had had no other formal firearms training. Although I understood the importance of practice with my gun, I had primarily completed private, unsupervised, target practice at an indoor range, which also meant that I had had no practice drawing from a holster, since that...

Democrats' HB 240 (Mandatory "Safe" Storage of Firearms) is based on several anti-gun myths

Reps. Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati) and Jessica Miranda (D-Forest Park) have introduced HB 240, gun control legislation that would prohibit any person from storing or leaving a firearm in a manner or location in the person's residence where the person knows or reasonably should know a minor is able to gain access to the firearm. Unfortunately, this legislation, like similar bills which have been...

Everytown Ignoring Bloomberg’s Findings

We regularly cover anti-gun organizations’ “research” efforts and analyze the claims they make. These claims usually cite a study that excluded important factors, picked a narrow timeframe, or misunderstood some relevant law that undermines the premise. We have to admit, we’re a little surprised by this one. Everytown published an infographic on February 1, 2019, titled “Gun Violence in America...

Ohio House Approves Budget with Critical Investments in Conservation

Responding to a plea by sportsmen and a campaign led by the Sportsmen’s Alliance, the Ohio House of Representatives approved the state’s two-year budget (HB 166), with a major investment in conservation included.
