Let us count the ways . . . How male and female gun owners in the U.S. compare
About six-in-ten gun owners in the United States are male (62%). Still, about one-in-five women (22%) report that they own a gun. While these women resemble their male counterparts in some respects, their views on and experiences with guns often differ from those of male gun owners.
Here are seven ways that female and male gun owners compare, based on a recent Pew Research Center survey of 1,269 gun owners.
This should make prosecution a lot easier, assuming he lives . . . Homicide suspect filmed himself during running gun battle that wounded LAPD officer
A homicide suspect who exchanged shots with Los Angeles police during a running gun battle in El Segundo on Thursday filmed at least part of the encounter on a cellphone while he ran from officers, according to a source familiar with the investigation.
The shootout left a SWAT officer wounded and the suspect gravely injured and terrorized the neighborhood, where residents described bullets whizzing by and loud bursts of gunfire.
The gunman, who has yet to be publicly identified, was shouting into the phone that was pointed at him, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation into the shooting.
“They coming at me,” the man said on the video, according to the source. “I’m gonna die today.”
He hasn’t. Yet.

Air Armor Tech introduces military-grade inflatable gun cases that offer the rugged protection of a hard case with the light-weight portability of a soft case
Much like the airbag in your vehicle that uses pressurized air to fill a bag to protect you, Air Armor Tech gun cases protect your shotgun, rifle and scope using air. Each case uses a premium, high-performance air bladder designed to encapsulate your firearm in a firm blanket of interconnected air chambers that work together to absorb shock energy from bumps and drops that often occur during transportation of a firearm. This innovative concept uses the same durable material and engineering that fighter pilots trust their lives with in the daily use of their G-suit and Life Preserving Unit (LPU)!
Lefties start beating and shooting at righties…and the NRA calling them on it is somehow evidence of ‘hate’ . . . Why the NRA has turned from fear to hate
So if you’re the NRA, what do you do? How do you justify telling people not just that their gun rights must be preserved but that there’s an emergency requiring just as much frantic gun purchasing and membership-renewing as ever?
You turn from fear to hate.
You can’t quite say that Rachel Maddow and Bernie Sanders are going to break down your members’ doors and snatch their AR-15s before burning down the house, but you can foster the idea that civil war might be around the corner — and you can ramp up the hatred of liberals. After all, what would make a liberal madder than going out and buying a few more guns? Ha, take that, hippie!
Buy Smith & Wesson! . . . American Outdoor Brands: Full On Bull
Make no mistake results are being improved diversifying away from just the firearm side of the business. However, sales of firearms and accessories are still the big money maker. With the impact of new acquisitions bolstering revenues and earnings per share, there is room to run higher.
Looking ahead, and considering the history of the company’s earnings reports, we see no reason why these expectations will not only be met but also exceeded. There is a lot to like here, including shareholder value creation via $50 million in buybacks last quarter. Further, the company has $61.5 million in cash (up from $54 million three months ago), long-term debt of $219 million when considering senior notes. It is in a strong position. Stay long.
The 23-year-old man shot by police during a foot chase Tuesday night through Curtis Bay had pointed a gun at an officer at close range before he was shot, according to area surveillance and officer body camera footage released by police Thursday.
“The officer basically hits the deck when he sees that gun raised at him,” said police spokesman T.J. Smith, referring to footage from two angles showing the officer closing in on the suspect in an open parking lot, the suspect turning and raising the gun, and the officer slipping backward to the ground as he opened fire.
Smith said police still were not sure when during the chase the man was shot. The footage shows the officer who fell get up and continue chasing the man into an alley, where he and other officers open fire.
