21-gun Salute Cancelled Because “Gun Violence”

From Bearing Arms:

For more than a decade, ROTC cadets at the University of Virginia have held a 24-hour vigil each Veterans Day that concludes with a 21-gun salute to those who’ve served. This year, however, the guns of November will fall silent after the university’s president announced that the tradition is over, in part because of concerns about gun violence.

Last year, 57% of teens told researchers they worry about a shooting happening at their school. A slightly higher percentage of parents of teenagers, 63%, fear a shooting at their child’s school, the Pew Research Center found.

But many experts and parents are asking if the drills, some complete with simulated gunfire, are doing more harm than good.

Organizing For Gun Rights

From Ammoland:

Over the next three months, we will ask each of you to step up. There will be articles on how to form a local program. What groups we like for local political support. I know in my heart we can turn this around. In order to do that, however, we need to reach out to other gun owners, explain to them what is at risk.

Massachusetts’s Ban On Defensive Firearms

From Cato Institute:

Massachusetts law currently prohibits ownership of “assault weapons,” the statutory definition of which includes the most popular semi-automatic rifles in the country, as well as “copies or duplicates” of any such weapons. As for what that means, your guess is as good as ours. A group of plaintiffs, including two firearm dealers and the Gun Owners’ Action League, challenged the law as an unconstitutional violation of their Second Amendment rights. Unfortunately, both a federal trial judge and appellate court upheld the ban—though they could not agree on why.

Intro To Rifle Optics

From Guns.com:

Whenever I am outfitting a new rifle with new optics, I have two major criteria. The first one is the obvious – application. What is the rifle to be used for? What kind of distance and precision are required? What kind of shooting entails? For example, shooting high-speed drills at 50-yards in a 3-Gun match is quite different than shooting a rutting bull on a crimson ridgeline during a fall elk hunt. The second criteria revolves around budget. We are spoiled for choice here with countless options ranging from wallet-friendly glass all the way up to world-class precision optics. Matching your must-have features with cost will narrow down those options.

The Wide Militia Movement

From Reason:

Two more factors muddle the picture even more. One is the white nationalists of the alt-right, who sometimes draw on the same pool of potential recruits as the militias, though relations between the two movements are frequently frosty. The other consists of the armed “counter-recruitment” organizations that imitate the militias’ iconography while advocating leftist (usually anarchist) politics.

Misrepresenting “Well Regulated Militia”

From Reason:

When the Second Amendment was written, the idea that Americans had an individual right (and in some cases an obligation) to possess arms for defense of both themselves and the state was widely understood. It had roots in the rights won by the Glorious Revolution of 1688—rights that the American Revolution was dedicated to preserving.

Arkansas Removes State NFA Regulations

From Ammoland:

SB 400, now Act 495, eliminates the Arkansas ban on silenced (suppressed) firearms. The old law made it illegal to use, possess, make, repair, sell or otherwise deal in suppressed firearms.  Senator Ballinger is reported to have told the Senate that there were about 10,000 people who owned suppressors in Arkansas, under the National Firearms Act (NFA).
