COMMENTARY: What is an Assault Weapon?
By M. George Eichenberg, Ph.D.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Controlling definitions of key terms is perhaps more central to the gun rights debate than most gun owners (and writers) are aware. Nowhere is this more true than that aspect of the debate concerning so-called assault weapons. "Why do you need an assault weapon?" is a not uncommon question. We usually (hopefully) attempt to respond to the question with a rational, well-reasoned explanation of why we want or need such firearms. More

Lake Houston Observer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The 2.7 million people that hunt or fish in Texas have a tremendous impact on the state's economy. In 2011, these outdoorsmen and women spent $4.1 billion with a ripple effect of $7.26 billion and supported 65,993 jobs in the state. New data released by the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation documents the importance of sportsmen and women's activities in Texas and across the nation. The state fact sheets follow the release of CSF's national report, "America's Sporting Heritage, Fueling the American Economy" that was released in mid-January. More

State officials say last year's hunting season in New York had the fewest number of shooting incidents on record with 24 people shot. The Department of Environmental Conservation says two people died in hunting incidents, each when they were shot by another member of their hunting party.

According to NRA's Women on Target program, participation in the female-focused instructional shooting clinics increased by 26 percent in the 2012. National Women on Target Program Coordinator Diane Danielson believes she knows the reason why. "It's all thanks to word of mouth and the nature of the program," said Danielson. "We're strictly for women, primarily the first time shooter. It's about getting out to shoot and getting over the fear of firing those first shots." More

Hunting tournament raises funds, reduces feral hog count
Longview News-Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hog hunters in Upshur County, Texas, accomplished two objectives recently: Raising money for the Gilmer Chamber of Commerce and reducing the number of feral hogs in the county. This is the fourth year of the Upshur County Goes Hog Wild Hunting Tournament, said organizer Jeff Dodd and it does at least make a dent in the problems caused by hogs. "Feral hogs are a problem all over the state," Dodd said. "They tear up pasture land and kill livestock. This one hunt isn't going to do a lot, but at least it helps some." More

Predator hunting: Save a songbird, thank a coyote
Field & Stream    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There are good reasons to hunt coyotes: It's challenging. Fur prices are up. In general, it's good that we kill some to make the rest keep their heads down and so they maintain a healthy fear of man. Shoot coyotes because you value them as game animals or to keep them away from your livestock or because you don't like them hanging around your house. Just don't assume, as so many do, that you are automatically doing A Good Deed for Nature whenever you kill one, especially in light of the recent study outlining the damage feral cats do to bird populations. You know what eats cats? Coyotes. Apparently coyotes see these Trap-Neuter-Release cat colonies as all-you-can-eat buffets. More
