Another Day, Another Hearing with Anti-Gun Democrats Grandstanding on Firearms
On Wednesday, the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing it called, “Holding Megabanks Accountable: A Review of Global Systemically Important Banks 10 years after the Financial Crisis.” If you are wondering what that could possibly have to do with the Second Amendment, let us remind you that Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is the Speaker of the House.

Get the Hect Outta Here: Police Chief Suspended After Students Complain About Pro-Gun "Likes"
Smith and Mount Holyoke Colleges are two liberal arts institutions for women in the western part of Massachusetts. Both share a campus police department that until recently was overseen by Chief Daniel Hect, who took command February 18 of this year. Less than two months later, however, Hect finds himself on administrative leave after a wave of discontent following students’ scrutiny of his social media accounts. The main complaints, at least according to the students themselves, center on Chief Hect having “liked” tweets that in some cases were issued by the National Rifle Association and in others were supportive of the president of the United States.

Swiss to Vote on Implementation of EU Gun Controls
On May 19, Swiss citizens will go to the polls to vote in a referendum that will determine whether the peaceful mountain nation will acquiesce to the mandates of the European Firearms Directive. The Swiss have a proud history of voting to protect their firearms heritage. In 2011, the Swiss electorate rejected a ballot measure that would have ended the tradition of militia members keeping their firearms at home and burdened law-abiding gun owners with federal gun registration and new acquisition requirements.

Pittsburgh Residents Challenge Ban on Standard Capacity Magazines
With assistance from the NRA, Pittsburgh residents filed a lawsuit today challenging the city’s ban on publicly carrying loaded magazines that accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Pittsburgh’s recently enacted ordinance misleadingly describes these magazines as “large capacity” even though they come standard with many of the nation’s most popular firearms and are commonly used in handguns carried for self-defense.

Identifying the Problem of Gun Control Research
In 2017, anti-gun researcher John Donohue and his team released a study that purported to find that Right to Carry laws increase overall violent crime rates. The paper was updated six months later seemingly to address criticism of its methodology and produced the same conclusion. Readers may be familiar with the study as an anti-gun press fawned over the results without questioning the mechanism of the effect or the methodology itself.

Brain Science Shows How Hunters Win or Lose at Survival
Why is someone who has everything he needs to survive being lost in the woods—including skills and supplies—found dead while someone else—with no gear or training—is found alive? Sure, some of it is chance, but survivors, no matter their nationality, religion or economic strata, share similar character traits and patterns of decision-making that increase their chances of making it out alive. If you’ve read Laurence Gonzales’ “Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies and Why” then you already know that you need to practice this way of living long before you get off course in a blinding snow storm, your business fails or you’re diagnosed with cancer. If you’ve followed up that book with “Surviving Survival: The Art and Science of Resilience” then you know even more about how the brain processes survival and how you can use hunting, for example, to help heal post-traumatic stress disorder.

"Snapshot Wisconsin" Uses Citizen Science to Aid Wildlife
What do you do if you have more than 6,000 blocks of habitat to survey for wildlife management, but you don’t have anywhere near the number of biologists or field technicians needed to accomplish the task? Answer: If you are a research scientist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR), you come up with a wild idea. You ask the public if it would be willing to help. You ask if state residents would set up and monitor thousands of trail cameras in areas of suitable habitat across the state. And you’d call it Snapshot Wisconsin.
