Bombshell Study: Gun Owners Tend to Be Angry, Unstable, Impulsive


No big surprise, but a study has found if you have several guns then you are more likely to have anger issues.

The study was conducted by researchers from universities including Duke and Harvard. The findings were published in the journal, Behavioral Sciences and the Law and showed more importance and focus should be placed on individuals with a “history of violent behavior” and “less on diagnosed mental illness” when trying to reduce gun violence.

The study also found that guns are “disproportionately owned” by those who are more likely to have trouble with anger management and impulse control. The LA times reported:

“…people owning six or more guns were more likely to fall into both of these categories than people who owned a single gun.”

Local news

A man has been sentenced to five years in prison for accidentally shooting David Kennedy to death last year in a Hyde Park apartment.

Paris D. Walker-Rush, 26, was sentenced to five years Wednesday by Judge Mary Margaret Brosnahan after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, according to Cook County court records.

Kennedy, 24, was found shot in the head in an apartment in the 5200 block of South Cornell about 9 p.m. Nov. 21, 2014, authorities said at the time.

Kennedy, of the 3700 block of South Wood Street, died at the scene. An autopsy confirmed he died from a gunshot wound to the head, and the death was ruled a homicide.

Walker-Rush was arrested without incident immediately after the shooting.

Academi Training Center Accidental Shooting - Of Course No Charges

Local news

Virginia Beach Police have launched an internal investigation after a gun was accidentally fired during a training exercise in North Carolina.

Police confirm it happened Wednesday night at the Academi Training Center in Moyock, North Carolina. You may know that facility by its former name, Blackwater.

The Camden County Sheriff’s Office says the incident occurred after training was completed Wednesday afternoon, when officers were cleaning their weapons. The Sheriff’s Office says Capt. Michael Ronan’s weapon accidentally discharged, which resulted in one officer being struck in the arm.

How in the world can someone who's trained in firarms handling do something like this? How much training does it take to remember to remove the round from the chamber FIRST?

I say such an amazing lack of competence in gun-handling should be considered criminal. Such a person should lose his rights to own and use guns.

Florida Permit Holder Drops Gun, Injures Three, Continues to Enjoy His Gun Rights

Local news

Deputies said the weapon fell out of the gun owner’s holster while he was walking through the dining room of the Cracker Barrel in Sanford.

Deputies said William Hoback was talking to the checkout counter when his gun slipped out of his holster and fired.

Three people were hit by the shrapnel, including a restaurant manager and Hoback’s fiancé.
The third victim’s leg was badly cut and he had to go to the hospital.

The customer told detectives he was eating his breakfast when he heard a loud bang, which was followed by a sharp burning pain in his left shin.

After Hoback realized what had happened, he apologized and explained it was an accident.
Deputies agreed, so he was not charged.

“This shooting doesn’t appear to be intentional and the conduct doesn’t appear to be so reckless that it would support the charge of criminal negligence,” said WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer.

Sheaffer said even though the shooting doesn’t rise to the level of criminal negligence, the victim could file a civil lawsuit.

Idaho: Another Accidental Shooting at a Gun Show - Two Injured

Local news

Two men were injured at an Idaho gun show Saturday morning after a vendor from Washington state accidentally fired a rifle, Ada County Sheriff's officials said.

A 74-year-old man reportedly was securing a rifle with a plastic zip tie at the Lewis Clark Trader gun show near Boise when the weapon fired. The bullet went through a cardboard box, two table covers and a metal cane before striking a man holding the cane as well as a man standing nearby, officials said. Both men were hit in the leg.

They were taken to a hospital with what police believed were non-life threatening injuries.

Officials say the shooting happened before the show opened and it went on as scheduled.

It's the second time in three years that an accidental shooting has injured someone at a gun show in Garden City, the Idaho Statesman reported.

The vendor has cooperated in the ongoing investigation and so far has not been cited.

 I guess that's not too bad, one shooting every two years. Small price to pay for all that freedom.

California Man Gets 7 Years for the Accidental Shooting Death of His Sister

Gloria Guzman

Local news

The murder charges for 21-year-old Raymond Bahena were dropped after he pleaded no contest to the involuntary manslaughter of his sister on Tuesday.

The June 11, 2014 death of 17-year-old mother of two Gloria Guzman began as a domestic disturbance between Guzman and her boyfriend. Witnesses said that during the altercation, Guzman picked up the phone to call her brother (Raymond Bahena).

Upon his arrival to the home on the 16000 block of Desert Sand Road, he was confronted by her boyfriend and his father. A verbal altercation ensued and guns were subsequently drawn. Shots were fired and Guzman was accidentally hit in the lower abdomen by a bullet shot by her brother. Bahena panicked and fled the scene, but later contacted family and decided to turn himself in.

When deputies arrived at the home Guzman and the father of her boyfriend both were suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were transported to Victor Valley Global Medical Center where Guzman succumbed to her injuries shortly after. The injuries of the man were non-life-threatening in nature.

Bahena requested immediate sentencing and was sentenced to 7 years in prison to be served at Chino State Prison. He was credited for about a year and a half time served.

Oklahoma Newspaper Gets It Wrong

Media Bias Goes Extreme


The national and local media bias against the Second Amendment reached bizarre heights this week when a newspaper headline proclaimed “Shooter kills 4; 30 injured.”

The problem? Well, even a casual reader would note that the tragedy described in the article had nothing to do with a “shooter” but was about a individual who drove her car through a homecoming parade at Oklahoma State University. While the motives of the driver’s actions remain unclear, we find it simply incredible that a headline could be so abundantly off the mark.

The newspaper responsible for the amazing disconnect between reality and reporting – The Traverse City Record Eagle – cited “page designer error” as the cause. Page designer error? Really?

I wonder how that could have happened? It's so strange, as Ammoland says, it's hard to understand.

Could it be the daily, never-ending, slaughter of innocent people by gun violence?  Could it be that mass murder has become as American as apple pie?

Yeah, that's it and all the pretending bullshit from gun rights fanatics will not change it. It'll only get worse for them and their misguided cause.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Gary Becker, 65, was carrying his Ruger .243 Caliber Rifle inside the house to put it away after hunting, when it slipped out of his hand. They say the butt of the rifle hit the ground and the rifle went off, causing substantial damage to Becker’s left hand.

Meet the New Boss - Same as the Old Boss

Helping Ex-cons Getting Back into Society

The proposals will essentially help to give some 600,000 inmates released from state and federal prisons annually a second chance to become solid, law-abiding members of society by eliminating the barriers they often face after release. The administration believes this is achieved, in part, through expanded opportunities for education and jobs, reducing or eliminating obstructions to employment, and by providing housing assistance.

The Department of Education has allotted up to $8 million to be dispersed into nine communities over the next three years, with the goal of providing educational opportunities to criminals, something which has been proven to reduce recurring incarceration rates. Additionally, as part of the TechHire initiative, more than 30 communities have stepped up and are working together, along with national companies, to help make tech training and jobs more readily available to those with a criminal history.

The president has also asked for Congress’ support in federal employment applications to “ban the box,” referring to a question typically present about prior criminal convictions, which oftentimes keeps an individual with such a history from progressing through the federal employment process. This is a step already taken by a number of state, city and private companies, and by eliminating such questions, all individuals applying for the position – including those with a criminal history – will have the opportunity to fairly compete for federal jobs.

A 33-year-old man has been named as the crazed gunman who randomly killed three people in broad daylight on Halloween before being fatally shot by police, the Colorado Springs Gazette reports.

Noah Harpham, a Colorado Springs resident, battled addiction and recently authored rambling blogs about his father and religion, the Gazette reports.

The shootings happened Saturday at about 8:45 a.m., Colorado Springs Police said. The gunman was heavily armed as he walked down the street. He shot a bicyclist first, and then killed two women, KKTV reports. He was then chased by responding officers and gunned down in a shootout. Police have been tight-lipped about the case, refusing to provide details or identities of those involved until autopsies are completed.

Harpham has no criminal record, except for a 2003 speeding ticket in Oregon.

North Carolina Babysitter Charged in Toddler's Shotgun Death

Local news

A Henderson County woman who was babysitting a toddler who died in an accidental shooting was charged in her death on Monday.

Deputies charged Heather Ann Bradburn Stepp, 28, with one felony count of involuntary manslaughter.

This charge arose as a result of the death of 2-year-old Abagail Newman on Oct. 26.

Henderson County authorities say Abagail was accidentally shot in her upper body by a 20-gauge shotgun.

What about the gun owner?  What about the  incredibly irresponsible decision to have a shotgun in a home with kids? Unless the young babysitter brought the gun with her along with her homework, I'd say the parents should be the ones facing charges.

Future of California Gun Range in Doubt

Local news reports

A clash between gun fans and outdoors lovers is shaping up as a regional park board considers whether to close a 52-year-old shooting range in Anthony Chabot Regional Park.

Critics say that lead shot pollution leached into soil and runoff at the range has become an expensive mess that will only become costlier to manage and clean. And, they say, guns and parks just don't mix.

"People hiking or walking dogs in a wide open regional park expect a natural experience, not to hear the blast of guns and ruining the peace and quiet," said Frank Burton, a Hayward resident.

He collected nearly 4,000 signatures an online petition urging closure of the range, which is used by police and the public. A rival petition to keep the range open garnered a similar number of signatures.

Florida Concealed Carry Permit Holder Shoots Someone Unintentionally and Suffers NO Consequences

Local news reports with video

A customer's gun fell to the floor, accidentally shooting a man while inside the Cracker Barrel restaurant in Sanford Sunday morning.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office said after interviewing witnesses at the scene, deputies determined that a customer was on his way to the register to pay for his meal when his legally carried firearm fell from his holster onto the floor, discharging one round, which struck a male patron in the lower leg.

The shooting was determined to be accidental and no charges are expected to be filed.

Musta been one of them old guns.

Musta been one of them superior permit holders.

Brady Campaign Labels NRA "Terrorists"

Dan Gross


The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has never had a firm grasp on the English language, as evidenced by the repudiation of their bizarre interpretation of the Second Amendment at the U.S. Supreme Court. However, this week, in an attempt to demonize NRA, Brady Campaign took their hyperbole to a new low, referring to the NRA as “terrorists.” That’s right; according to the Brady Campaign, the grassroots organization comprised of 5 million freedom-loving members that are dedicated to using the democratic process and legal framework to defend the constitutional rights of all Americans are “terrorists.”

The craven statement was made by Brady Campaign President Daniel Gross to The Hill. In the article, Gross criticized two Democratic presidential candidates, the NRA D- rated Bernie Sanders and F rated Lincoln Chafee, for not sufficiently conforming to the group’s radical gun control agenda. In taking particular issue with Chafee’s debate performance, in which the candidate stated he would try to negotiate with NRA, Gross stated, “[t]his is not a negotiation with the NRA… We don’t negotiate with terrorists.”

Unfortunately, this is not the first time radical gun control advocates, and others, have used this type of reprehensible language to slander gun owners or NRA. In early 2013, Stop Handgun Violence founder and president John Rosenthal, who is best known for his anti-gun billboard outside Boston’s Fenway Park, said on the Ed Schultz radio show that the NRA “in my mind is a terrorist organization as far as I'm concerned.”

Supreme Court to Rule on Domestic Abusers and Guns
