Liberty University to build nation’s first on-campus firing range – “Liberty University is seeking a permit to build an on-campus shooting range, less than a year after the school’s board of trustees also approved a policy that allows students to carry concealed weapons in dorms. According to the proposal, the shooting range would be the first National Rifle Association-approved facility on a U.S. campus. … According to a Liberty student blog, some 350 U.S. universities participate in some kind of sport shooting, and fewer than 30 of those schools own outdoor shooting facilities off campus. Liberty’s gun range will be the first on-campus facility, and will be available to students, faculty, staff and the general public.” Next up on the NRA’s list: Oberlin, Brown and Hampshire College. </sarc>

The Year of the Gun: Carry Permit, Sales Figures Explode in 2016 – “As Dr. Lott mentions, this escalation is particularly compelling given the rising number of states that have adopted “permitless” concealed carry laws, with such laws passed recently in Missouri, West Virginia, Mississippi and Idaho. More than six percent of adults in the United States have a permit to carry a concealed weapon; in ten states, more than ten percent of the adult population are concealed carry permit-holders.” But you probably already knew that.
Cleveland man charged in deadly accidental shooting at dinner party ‘extremely sorry,’ attorney says – “(Steven) Leannais hosted (Anthony) Stanford and two other friends for dinner and drinks when the shooting happened, police reports say. One of the other partygoers went into Leannais’ bedroom and grabbed his handgun. The video shows a man waving a gun around. He asks if the video is recording and says: ‘We’re going to walk up to this guy and say ‘we’re going to cap this guy’s ass.” Someone tells the man the gun is loaded and a woman says ‘Don’t point that at me.’ The man points the gun at his face and Leannais grabs the gun and takes out the magazine and gives it back, the video shows.” You know what happened next.
