Colorado Jewish gun store owner offers rabbis free rifles

The Jewish owner of a gun shop in Colorado has offered to give rabbis semi-automatic rifles for free following the murder of 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Mel Bernstein, who owns Dragon Arms near Colorado Springs, made the offer in an item aired Oct. 31 on KOAA-TV’s News5. During the shooting Saturday, “people sitting in the synagogue, they were sitting ducks,” and “nobody’s stopping him,” Bernstein said of the shooter. “You have to have the tool to fight back, and this is the tool, and I’m donating these to the rabbis.” Each gun that Bernstein hopes to give the local religious leaders is valued at an estimated $650, and the store was clear that each rabbi would have to pass a background check to take possession of the weapon.

What gun owners need to know about Ottawa’s new firearms bill

The Liberal government is poised to pass new firearms legislation — changes to the country’s firearms regime that Ottawa says are “modest” but necessary reforms to reduce the frequency of violent gun crime.

In the last election, the Liberal Party vowed to reverse a decade’s worth of Conservative changes to gun rules they claim bolstered firearm-related crime. Bill C-71, introduced by Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, fulfils that commitment through an overhaul of the background check system, new record-keeping requirements for retailers and further restrictions on transporting a firearm.

“The provisions in Bill C-71 are modest and reasonable, and they do not entail a significant new cost,” Goodale said of the legislation, which is at third reading in the House of Commons.

Gun control is another nail in the Liberal coffin.

Chicago’s Gun Violence Is So Bad That Parents Resort To “Hiding” Their Children

Gang violence and crime in the Windy City have not gone away under Rahm Emanuel’s leadership, though some progress has been made in specific categories of crime. Still, the endemic problems are enough to have altered the lives of many of Chicago’s residents, seemingly in a permanent fashion. The local CBS outlet looked at the effect this has had on some families and discovered some truly heartbreaking stories. In Lawndale, on the City’s west side, some parents report that they’ve become so desperate that they’ve taken to “hiding their children” rather than risking their being injured or killed in the act of simply playing or enjoying a normal childhood.

Ready or not: U.S. unleashing 3D-printed ‘ghost guns’ for the entire internet

The era of the untraceable, undetectable, 3D-printed gun is almost upon us, and it’s not going to respect international borders.

That’s the concern critics are raising ahead of Aug. 1, when the U.S. will allow plans for the “Liberator” plastic pistol to be posted online for anyone to download. The previously banned weapon can be made using a nail, a bullet, and a 3D printer, and is said to be untraceable and invisible to metal detectors.

I’m not “horrified” for some reason.
