Bloomberg's Everytown comes out from behind the curtain

For years, gun control organizations have been seeking to dismantle the bipartisan Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) . That’s the crucial federal law shielding firearms manufacturers and sellers from frivolous lawsuits designed to bankrupt law-abiding businesses by blaming them for the criminal misuse of lawfully sold firearms or drive the industry to its knees and impose gun...

Additional deer hunting, CWD testing in Hardin, Marion, Wyandot counties

Hunters in Hardin, Marion, and Wyandot counties will have additional opportunities to harvest white-tailed deer as the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife continues to monitor for chronic wasting disease (CWD) in the region.

Biden Administration continues to terrorize gun owners

In the legal world there is a Latin term in terrorem. The term is used to describe actions designed to intimidate or terrorize someone into a certain course of conduct, often in cases where the actual legal ability or willingness to demand that course of conduct are dubious.

Arms Trade Treaty sets sights on global firearms industry

Once touted as the United Nation’s (UN) crown jewel in preventing and eradicating the illicit trade and diversion of conventional arms, last week’s Ninth Conference of States Parties (CSP9) served as an almost singularly focused attack on the global firearms industry. It was remarkable shift. The ATT’s...

Sen. Terry Johnson introduces BFA-backed SB 148 to prohibit tracking of firearms purchases

In September of last year, we reported that gun control extremists were pressuring credit card companies to track firearm sales through the use of "merchant category codes." Backers of this scheme made it clear that their goal was to use the codes to enact further gun control through a public-private partnership. In response, several states have enacted legislation prohibiting or discouraging...

New data says you stopped mass murder most of the time

We live in a media-driven culture. We also have government agencies putting out biased reports that serve their political masters. It is rare that the media even questions the agency reports. That wouldn’t matter, but many of us confuse media headlines with facts. I’ve seen people on Facebook say that there were hundreds of “mass shootings” this year and that our children are not safe in school...
