Surprise Winner of Obama Stimulus Spending: Gun Industry
from The Christian Science Monitor
From the perspective of police departments – not to mention gunmakers – the Obama administration may go down as one of the most gun-friendly in history. Across America, police departments are using the taxpayer-funded stimulus bill to boost their arsenals with shotguns, handguns, and assault rifles. More


Senate Votes to Confirm Sunstein
from the Outdoor Wire
The U.S. Senate voted to end debate on the nomination of one of the most outspoken animal rights, anti-hunting, and anti-Second Amendment individuals to a high government position. By a 63-35 vote, cloture was invoked and debate stopped on the nomination of Cass Sunstein to serve as the head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Of the 63 senators that voted in favor of Sunstein, an anti-hunter, 22 were members of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus, or 42 percent. More

Sunstein Poses a Serious Risk to Future of Hunting
from the West Virginia Metro
Perhaps Obama isn't making any speeches about disrupting the lifestyle of rural America these days, but he's certainly putting people in place to do it for him. The number one candidate for that kind of hit work on sportsmen in the United States is Cass Sunstein. Sunstein is a professor from Harvard University, who formerly worked with Obama at the University of Chicago. He's now tapped to become head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. More

Studies Show Buybacks Do Little to Stop Violence
from the Bradenton Herald
Multiple studies have shown that buyback programs probably don’t reduce gun violence. The studies show that the programs make only a small dent in the local gun market. Many of the guns that are turned in don’t work. Often, middle-aged and elderly people are getting rid of their guns for some quick cash. “It’s highly unlikely that a person who would use guns for violence would turn them in,” said Gary Kleck, a Florida State University criminology professor who studies gun control.

‘The Guns of Autumn’ Revisited, Then and Now
from The Evening Sun
As we head toward autumn and the initial opening of several hunting seasons, the author of this article is reminded of a special anti-hunting program that CBS televised years ago. The program, “The Guns of Autumn,” aired in 1975, depicted hunting as a cruel, outdated activity, carried out by blood-thirsty killers and mentally inferior morons. Its level of inaccurate biasness bordered on the absurd, to say the least. More

D.C. Appeals Court Upholds Mandatory Gun Licensing
from CBS News
An appeals court in Washington, D.C., has upheld the city's extremely restrictive law requiring residents to obtain licenses to carry handguns outside of their homes. The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling last year in the high-profile D.C. v. Heller Second Amendment case did not invalidate the District of Columbia's licensing requirements, and even appears to have endorsed them, the appeals court ruled. More
