National Shooting Sports Foundation (blog)    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Andrew Rosenthal of The New York Times blasted the National Rifle Association while seemingly attempting to reinvent the paper's position on gun control. In his post, Rosenthal declared: "The New York Times editorial board does not oppose gun ownership. We believe the Second Amendment confers a communal right on Americans to own guns — not an individual one. But that's actually a smaller point than you might think. All we really want are sensible restrictions based on public safety and common sense." More

American Rifleman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's gun-buying time. You see, the firearms business can be quite seasonal, like the ski business or the boat business.

The waterfowl species most commonly pursued by hunters — dabbling ducks and inland diving ducks — generally live shorter lives than geese and swans. More
