from The Washington Times
Many media outlets have misfired about guns. Countless newspapers and television networks -- from CBS to MSNBC -- have misreported that conservative protesters are threatening President Obama with guns at public events. It hasn't happened. More


D.C. Regulations Make Gun Ownership Difficult
from The Washington Post
It takes $833.69, a total of 15 hours 50 minutes, four trips to the Metropolitan Police Department, two background checks, a set of fingerprints, a five-hour class and a 20-question multiple-choice exam. Oh, and the votes of five Supreme Court justices. They're the ones who really made it possible D.C. residents, to own a handgun, a constitutional right as heavily debated and rigorously parsed as the freedoms of speech and religion. More

They loaf at perching, watering or graveling sites near the feeding area for an hour or two around noon, then return to the feeding area for the remainder of the afternoon. Before going to roost, they stop to drink again. By determining the exact time and locale of these activities, you can ascertain the best place and time to hunt a particular site. More

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission approved the target range grants during its Aug. 27 public meeting in Fort Worth. More
