While keeping a part-time vacation residence there, he advised the sheriff processing his application that he changed his primary residence to... read more

Bloomberg Wasted $350,000 on Colorado Recall

Bloomberg Wasted $350,000 on Colorado Recall – From the moment the recall effort in Colorado began, money started flowing in from out-of-state gun control proponents and influence flowed in from Chicago. It was all part of an effort to protect state senators Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) and John Morse (D-Colo. Springs) from being recalled. And by extension, it was about protecting Colorado’s new gun control laws as... read more

New York gun makers in a squeeze: stay or go?

New York gun makers in a squeeze: stay or go? – Residents in this village of 8,000 or so along the Mohawk River usually don’t have much interest in news coming out of Nashville.  But an item published Aug. 20 on the business page of The Tennessean sure caught their attention: Remington Arms, far and away the biggest employer in this town, has been touring possible new facility sites in the Nashville... read more

No firearms on SUNY ESF lands

No firearms on SUNY ESF lands – Last week the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) released a statement alerting both big- and small-game hunters that hunting with firearms on their properties is no longer allowed, at least for the upcoming hunting seasons. When Governor Andrew Cuomo’s famed NY SAFE Act was hurried through the Legislature earlier this year he clearly stated that the package was not intended to affect hunters. He’s obviously been wrong about that, and although this latest development from SUNY ESF was actually unintentional, those who hunt two of these tracts of land in the Adirondacks will likely be frustrated. The announcement comes just before the Adirondack range early black bear season opens Saturday, Sept.... read more

Massena resident calls out Mayor Hidy on lack of action on SAFE Act

Why Should We Care About 3-D Gun Printing?

Why Should We Care About 3-D Gun Printing? – It seems anytime a new firearm technology hits the market, certain people line up with a host of terrifying reasons to ban it. Remember when Sen. Chuck Schumer D-N.Y. suggested a ban on the importation of Glocks because they’d slip through metal detectors? Obviously that’s not true, given the Glock’s metal springs, firing pin, steel slide and barrel. However, using similar logic, Schumer has found a new, recently invented target—3-D-printed... read more

SAFE Act opponents near milestone in Orleans

SAFE Act opponents near milestone in Orleans – Local opponents of the NY SAFE Act say Orleans County is on the precipice of a milestone in the call to arms against the state’s new gun control legislation.  Members of New York Revolution, a statewide group that is seeking a repeal of the SAFE Act, say Orleans County is on track to become the first county in the state to have all local governments lined up in opposition to aspects or all of the legislation.  All but two municipalities in the county have passed resolutions opposing aspects or all of the gun control legislation passed in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. mass shooting. Gia Arnold of Holley, who is the PResident of New York Revolution, said the group hopes to have all 15 county municipalities voicing opposition within the next... read more
