Ex-justice urges next Congress and president to restrict the Second Amendment
The Washington Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens demonstrated the importance of America's upcoming presidential choice as he spoke to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Justice Stevens told the assembled gun grabbers of the urgent need for Congress to adopt laws restricting the right to keep and bear arms. As the author of the dissenting opinions in the Heller and McDonald cases, which affirmed the right of individuals to keep handguns in the home, Justice Stevens said the high court precedent still allows new laws rolling back our rights.

San Diego Union-Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

California Gov. signs bill to reopen the Bump and Grind hiking trail
KESQ-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Bump and Grind trail is one of the valley's popular spots to enjoy a tough run, hike, or bike. For Jacob Schefa, since his dad passed away in 2010, he's called the Rancho Mirage hike his place of "walking meditation." "During that time, my mother passed away and a lot of things changed in my life. The path, the climb was always there for me," he said. Hikers like Blaine Carian have been fighting to save the trail after the Department of Fish and Game shutdown the last half mile of it in 2011, claiming it was within a critical lambing area of bighorn sheep. "That last half mile really is the trail. Without the last half mile there really is no Bump and Grind," said Carian. More

Montana bighorn may be new Pope and Young record
Billings Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Outdoor Life caught up with Jim Hens who may have shot the Pope and Young record bighorn sheep this fall in the Missouri River Breaks. Hens dropped the ram, which measured more than 202 inches, after purchasing the state governor's tag for $300,000 when it was put up for auction. Money raised from the auction goes to sheep conservation. The current Pope and Young record for bighorn sheep was taken in 1998 by Todd Kirk in Alberta. That sheep scored 199 5/8. Pope and Young's record book takes archery entries only. More

Obama suggests he would seek to revive ban on assault weapons
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney engaged in a rare tussle over gun control at the recent debate and Obama opened the door to pushing for a ban on assault weapons if he wins a second term.

Live hunt Alaska: Hunting mountain goats in the Chugach
Outdoor Life    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Tyler Freel writes: "Just five days after returning from my sheep hunt, it was time to head back to the mountains. My buddy Steve and I met up at Meekins Air Service in the middle of the Chugach range to try and fill the mountain goat tags we had drawn. We both arrived late the night before our flight out, and after packing gear and getting a good night's rest, it was time to go. As we were going over final plans, we found that the weather was too nasty to get into the area we wanted to hunt, so we were going to be dropped on a glacier instead. We had no idea what we would be in for." More

Educate yourself, others, then vote
NSSF    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The key word in the Second Amendment — infringed — means the government has no business violating our right to keep and bear arms — period. There is no hedging, no "only if" or "unless." Recent court decisions have upheld that reasoning. Yet despite the above, many elected or would-be candidates, at all levels of government, harbor a deep urge to infringe on the Second Amendment. Thus, if you're a target shooter, hunter or simply someone who owns a firearm for self-defense, you should be concerned. Fortunately, there's an option — a way to prevent that infringement. More
