Pushes To “Gift” Taxpayer Funds To Gun Control Groups – “Minnesota State Senator Jeff Hayden is pushing legislation that would give $200,000 of taxpayer’s money to gun control groups annually as a ‘gift.’ He announced this idea in a recent press conference where he thanked Michael Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action for their ‘organizing power.’”
Upstate is an entirely different world . . . CNY rifle team’s top shooters – both girls – to face best in state – “The team practices in the basement of the primary school nearby, behind lock and key. They’re tucked away such that some of the high school teachers don’t even know the team exists, Jillian (Zakrzeski) said. She didn’t either until she was flipping through the pages of the winter sports guide freshman year. The sport sounded interesting and she had some hunting experience, so she convinced her friend Camryn to sign up for the team with her.”
If you say so . . . “This Ain’t No Man Purse…” – “Let’s make one thing perfectly clear! This ain’t no man-purse, yuppie sack, or briefcase for stiff-suited subjects! This is a man’s bag, made for men! Built and designed by Concealed Carrie, the company was founded by Leslie Deets. Hers is a great and interesting story, I think. Leslie wanted to get more familiar and educated with firearms. She did it the right way and enrolled in several concealed carry classes. She noticed several women carrying their guns in holsters. Knowing this wouldn’t be her style of carry, and necessity being the mother of invention, she came up with her own line of concealed carry purses that are modeled after todays stylish, designer handbags.”

Who says the US Congress never gets anything done? . . . ‘Ghost Guns Are Guns Act’ Introduced By Rep. Schneider, Rep. Espaillat – “Congressmen Brad Schneider (D, IL-10) and Adriano Espaillat (D, NY-13) announced the introduction of legislation to close the ‘ghost guns loophole’ which allows purchasers to avoid federal background checks by buying unassembled firearms online, they said. ‘Reducing gun violence starts with strong background checks, but some purchasers evade these safeguards by buying firearms online as assembly kits,’ said Schneider. ‘These frequently impossible to track ghost guns are not subject to background checks under current law and are more likely to be used in violent crimes.'”
