U.S. Park Police arrested a man at the World War II memorial Saturday morning for carrying an unloaded .22 rifle and ammunition. He was carrying the rifle in a black rifle case, and also had a black backpack. He was arrested without incident, and police have provided no further information.
A Virginia man has lost his concealed weapons permit and been fined $1500 after being convicted on appeal of brandishing a firearm while sitting at a stoplight, after the driver of a nearby private school bus saw him remove his Springfield .45 from his glove box and insert a magazine. The bus driver called authorities and said he felt threatened. So threatened, in fact, that it took him two days to make that call to police. The judge suspended the sentence when Corry’s lawyer noted that a further appeal would be filed. The Virginia Citizen’s Defense League is preparing a bill for the General Assembly in January to attempt to fix Virginia’s brandishing statute .
This is why you home carry. A Suffolk, Virginia man shot an aggressive pit bull in his front yard last month, in an incident police deemed justified. He was watching his kids play in his fenced front yard when two dogs began fighting outside the fence. During their melee, they broke through the fence and the homeowner attempted to spray them away with a hose, but they continued to act aggressively, and he shot one of them. Note that the story does not say he had to go into his house to get his gun.
The Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Texas Christian University ran into some issues recently when school officials disallowed flyers advertising the visit of a conservative commentator to the campus. The flyers, which featured a picture of an antique shotgun with the caption “Fully Loaded” along with photos of former President Ronald Reagan and the commentator, were allowed to be handed out, but could not be posted on bulletin boards or the school’s website. School officials also nixed the use of a free concealed handgun training class, a shotgun training class, or a skeet shooting gift certificate as raffle prizes. “Gun promotion is contradictory of the university’s policy to carry on campus,” wrote Lisa Albert, director of communications for TCU, in an email to The College Fix. “Producing a poster with a rifle on it and the words ‘fully loaded’ can certainly cause alarm in today’s environment.”
A little closer to the final product on Joerg Sprave’s full auto pencil shooter. Gotta watch that collateral damage, though.
