Long-awaited 'Furious' report places blame on ATF, Justice
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dozens of senior-level U.S. government officials turned a blind eye to public safety as they pursued an ill-conceived and poorly managed investigation into gun trafficking in Mexico, according to a long-awaited inspector general's report on Operation Fast and Furious. Portions of the Justice Department IG report, which has not been made public, were obtained exclusively by Fox News Channel. More

Some EMTs, firefighters want guns on job
Dayton Daily News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A debate is ramping up over whether to let EMTs and firefighters carry guns on the job. Some emergency medical services workers say they now routinely face more violent patients and dangerous situations. But the prospect of armed EMTs worries critics who question whether it would improve their safety or lead to other problems. Tim Holman, chief of German Twp. Fire and EMS in Clark County, Ohio, said he is weighing the pros and cons to allow his paramedics and emergency medical technicians to carry concealed handguns on the job, because they encounter belligerent and unpredictable people and police are not always immediately available to subdue or arrest troublemakers.

US gun sales hotter than a pistol
NBC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The gun business is booming. The question is, why? Smith & Wesson stock was zooming, thanks to a stellar earnings report. The firearms maker also boosted its outlook for the rest of the year. Because of the strong business, its backlog of orders more than doubled from the same quarter last year, the company is concentrating on boosting production and building inventory. "We are underserving the market at this moment, we all know that and that's a great opportunity going forward for us," CEO James Debney said in a conference call with analysts. More

Always insist on good gun safety for beginners
The News Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dan Chason: "Most of us can remember the time when Dad or a beloved relative handed us a shotgun as a kid. My first time was In Alabama when the local sheriff hosted a hunting and fishing day. Mom and Dad let me go with a friend but had no idea that guns were involved. I am sure if Mama had known, I would not have been allowed to go without my Dad to watch over me." More

ATF's latest gun grab
The Washington Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Obama administration is making it easier for bureaucrats to take away guns without offering the accused any realistic due process. In a final rule published recently, the Justice Department granted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives authority to "seize and administratively forfeit property involved in controlled-substance abuses." That means government can grab firearms and other property from someone who has never been convicted or even charged with any crime. More

Gun rights advocates see social benefits
Houston Chronicle    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the wake of mass shootings this summer, a fusillade of a different sort erupted when gun rights advocates suggested a good Samaritan with a concealed weapon might have saved the day. After gunman James Holmes opened fire in a crowded Aurora, Colo., theater, killing 12 and wounding 58, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler, wondered whether an armed movie patron "could have stopped this guy more quickly." In a subsequent interview, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a staunch gun-control advocate, called Gohmert's view "nonsensical." More

Statesman Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Delegates at the Republican convention approved a strong pro-gun platform that, among other things, supports national legislation to expand concealed carry rights. As a Republican state lawmaker and National Rifle Association member, as is GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, I applaud the position. But there are many other supporters of gun rights who are not here in attendance and their identity might surprise you. More

Arming illegal aliens through 'non-amnesty'
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The lamestream media told you: Sidestepping Congress which has refused to act reasonably on various amnesty plans proposed by Obama, the White House has implemented a program to allow certain undocumented immigrants stay in the country through a "non-amnesty" implemented by executive order, being called "deferred action." This allows youngsters brought into the country illegally by their parents to apply for waivers and attend college. Of perhaps even greater concern, by declaring these people to be here legally, they might no longer be prohibited gun possessors under federal gun law. More
