Boston Bomber Memorialized as Gun Victim by Bloomberg's Anti-Gun Movement
Boston Bomber Memorialized as Gun Victim by Bloomberg's Anti-Gun Movement - An event held yesterday in Concord, New Hampshire by out-of-state supporters of Mike Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns movement turned ugly when a 2nd Amendment activist (who was protesting the event) was arrested. But buried in the Union Leader story was an arguably more interesting nugget. During the rally, supporters of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns read the names of those “killed with guns” since the Dec. 14 Newtown shootings — and Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s name was memorialized among the names of the dead. (Tsarnaev, of course, was killed in a police shootout.)
Ice-T Narrates Gun Control Film Focusing On Civil Rights

The film takes a step back from the public discourse on limiting magazine capacity and defining assault rifles. Instead, “Assaulted” offers a unique historical perspective on the Second Amendment’s significance, taking a critical and objective look at the current gun laws, and the effect on civil rights and liberty.

Advocates make the case for rifles in Livingston County
Advocates make the case for rifles in Livingston County - Hunting incident investigator Michael L. Van Durme presented the case for allowing rifle hunting of bear and deer in Livingston County at a Monday evening meeting at Highway Department headquarters in Hampton Corners. Van Durme and others made a scientific and statistical case that the local prohibition against centerfire rifle hunting of bear and deer should be loosened in the interest of safety. Calling upon incident reports and his personal experience, Van Durme argued that rifle hunting is probably safer than shotgun hunting.
Fight against gun law continues
Fight against gun law continues - Most sportsmen are not hearing many updates on the various efforts to challenge the NY SAFE Act in state and federal courts, but that does not mean the efforts to get this unconstitutional bill tossed out are going away. Just the opposite. There is a lot going on behind the scenes, and Gov. Cuomo appears to be getting more nervous with each passing day.
