Opponents and activists for I-1639 sound off

Tue, 09/25/2018 - 11:45
Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable. Robin Ball owner of Sharp Shooting Range in Spokane, is leading the charge in Eastern Washington when it comes to Initiative-1639. She believes the ballot measure infringes on law-abiding gun owners.

Gun control initative 1639 set for November ballots

Tue, 09/25/2018 - 11:37
Gun control will be on the ballot this November as advocates hope to implement much stricter legislation statewide. Initiative 1639 would be the most sweeping gun control legislation passed recently in the state and would mandate a host of measures which advocates say would help curb gun violence, and which opponents say would price poor people out of having guns and infringe on Second Amendment rights. I-1639 would raise the minimum age to purchase a semiautomatic assault rifle, a term used in the legislation, to 21.

Protecting Your Right to Hunt is More Important Than Ever

Mon, 09/24/2018 - 13:09
Every day, actually every hour, animal-rights extremists, and supposedly well-meaning but ill-informed people in the United States and across the globe, are working to end hunting. They rely on emotion and misdirection to confuse average citizens into supporting their cause. Articles, opinion pieces and editorials in local, national and even international outlets confuse hunting with poaching; demonize hunters; blame hunters for wildlife population declines; and make the false claim that there are no limitations on hunting whatsoever. The people writing these articles are so far removed from nature that they don’t realize—and don’t care—that they are trying to remove the one component absolutely necessary to successful conservation throughout the world: the hunter.

Gun Control Twist: Saving One Life “Does Not Justify” Right-to-Carry

Fri, 09/21/2018 - 14:07
Gun control advocates often use some version of the phrase “if it saves one life” in order to justify their ineffective proposals. This week, the anti-gun editorial page of the Chicago Sun-Times offered a different take. Fearful that the Right-to-Carry was getting too much good publicity in the wake of an Illinois concealed carry permit holder’s heroic actions, the Sun-Times editorial board felt it necessary to lecture its readers, “One brave rescue of a Cicero cop doesn’t justify concealed guns.”
