CA Mayor: I Drive 280 Miles Round-Trip for Ammo Thanks to State’s Gun Laws

by AWR Hawkins Needles, California, Mayor Jeff Williams says the gun laws of his state require him to drive 280 miles round-trip in order to get ammunition to hunt quail or target shoot. On July 3, 2019, Breitbart News reported Needles’ city council approving a “Second Amendment Sanctuary City” declaration, whereby city leaders hoped to opt of out specific state gun controls. One set of controls were the new provisions for ammunition purchases, which make it illegal to buy bullets or shotgun shells from anyone other than a state-approved, California ammunition dealer. On August 20, 2019, Mayor Williams told...

FBI: More People Killed by Hammers, Clubs than with Rifles of Any Kind

by AWR Hawkins The most recent FBI crime stats show that more people were killed in 2017 with hammers and clubs than were killed with rifles of any kind. Breitbart News reported the most recent numbers–those for 2017–on September 26, 2018. Those figures showed that 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed with rifles. And it must be noted that the category of “rifles” used by the FBI includes bolt action, pump action, single shot, and semi-automatic, as well as those the left describes as “assault weapons.” This means only a percentage of the...

Study: Gun Control Without Addressing Mental Health Likely Will Fail

by Penny Starr An academic study issued just days ahead of the deadly shootings in Texas and Ohio that claimed 29 lives shows that tactics to enforce gun control and limit access to firearms will not succeed unless mental health is a part of the strategy to reduce mass shootings. Logan A. Yelderman, Justin J. Joseph, Matthew P. West, and Erycha Butler co-authored the study, titled “Mass Shootings in the United States: Understanding the Importance of Mental Health and Firearm Considerations.” “The main takeaway (specific to policy) from our research is that policy discussions about mass shooting violence should...

LET FREEDOM RING: New Hampshire Governor to Veto all Gun Control Bills

By Jose Nino New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu made waves in 2017 when he signed Constitutional Carry into law. However, in 2019, gun control is likely coming to his desk thanks to New Hampshire’s Democrat-controlled state legislature. He had previously told Democrats that gun control is not one of his priorities. The measures coming to his desk are universal background checks, “gun-free” zone expansions around schools, and the creation of waiting periods for firearms sales. These bills were approved by largely party-line votes. Sununu declared that he “absolutely” plans to veto all gun control legislation that Democrats pass. A...
