The uncomfortable truth about gun rights supporters – sometimes they are right – Particularly uncomfortable given the source – the UK’s left-of-Bernie Guardian newspaper. “But these numbers have to be put in context. The number of self-defensive gun uses each year is fiercely debated, and the estimates vary widely. But there are roughly 300 million guns in civilian hands. Set 30,000 gun deaths, or even 500,000 gun victimizations, against 300 million. As incomplete and imprecise as much gun data is, the bigger picture is clear: most guns are not being used in crimes.

Winchester Varmint X® Line Now Includes a 12-Gauge Shotshell with Shot-Lok® Technology
EAST ALTON, Ill. – Since its introduction, Varmint X centerfire loads have been the ones savvy predator hunters turn to for accurate, dependable performance each time they head into the field. But not every predator chaser hunts the wide-open expanses common to western country.

Equal-Opportunity Bullets – “I have a confession. I hate all guns. I hate every gun from an AR-15 to a B.B. gun to a SuperSoaker. I have even grown a slight disdain for my once-favorite video games like ‘Call of Duty’ or ‘Goldeneye.’ I am well aware that I’m an anomaly or a glitch in the Matrix.

Second bear hunt could be approved today – “Bears are amazingly tolerant and shy around people for the most part,” said Thomas Eason, (Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission) director of habitat and species conservation. ‘It’s when food becomes readily available (that) they get lured into human use areas. First they show up as sightings and they stay in that area because they’re being rewarded.’ The state has been getting more than 6,000 bear calls a year recently, compared to a few hundred calls a year a decade ago.”
