Blair Holt Gun Control Bill Rehashed
from ESPN
To many gun owners, it's the tsunami of gun control legislation, the mother of all efforts to restrict private gun ownership and the guarantees of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. To others, it's just the latest anti-gun agitation, a formerly defeated proposal dredged back up for another try in this time of shifting political winds. "It" is H.R. 45: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009. More

Oregon Student's Suspension Renews Gun Debate
from The Associated Press via
An ex-Marine with a concealed weapons permit has been suspended from Western Oregon University for the rest of the spring term because he carried a handgun on campus last month.

But Maxwell's suspension from school, which requires him to write a paper and take a mental health evaluation before he can return, has a gun-rights lobbying organization and at least two Republican state legislators rallying to his defense.

Oklahoma House Loaded for Bear Hunting
from The Oklahoman
Southeastern Oklahoma no longer will be a sanctuary for black bears if a bill that won unanimous approval Monday in the House becomes law. House Bill 1464 allows up to 20 black bears to be killed during the fall in four southeastern counties, said Rep. R.C. Pruett, the measure’s author. Pruett, D-Antlers, said he filed the measure because a growing number of residents have filed nuisance complaints about black bears — which can weigh about 500 pounds — coming by their houses and rooting through trash.
