SAF Takes Case Of Arizona Navy Vet Whose Guns Were Seized

The Second Amendment Foundation announced that it has taken on funding the case of a retired Glendale, Arizona Navy veteran whose gun collection was seized by authorities because of an on-going dispute with a neighbor who obtained a protection order.

The case of 56-year-old Rick Bailey has made headlines in the Southwest and across the Internet. Bailey had complained to the City of Glendale about the neighbor's habit of parking dump trucks used in his landscaping company. The dispute unfolded over several months until Bailey called police over concerns of toxic chemical odors apparently coming from the neighbor's property. The neighbor apparently alleged that Bailey had threatened him, and the following day, he obtained a harassment order against Bailey. Police showed up and took Bailey's gun collection, and he wants his property back.   Read more

Arrest Of School Shooter's Dad Shows Fatal Flaw Of Gun Control Measure, Says CCRKBA 

The arrest of Raymond Lee Fryberg, father of Marysville Pilchuck gunman Jaylen Fryberg, on charges of illegally purchasing the pistol used in that shooting demonstrates the fatal flaw of so-called “universal background check” legislation, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

“Apparently,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “a permanent protection order issued against Fryberg back in 2002 never made it into the National Instant Check System (NICS). Penalizing all law-abiding gun owners because a system is flawed does not prevent crime from happening, nor does it keep the wrong people from getting their hands on guns.”   Read more

Rule Change May Devastate International Travel for Hunters and Shooters

The Obama administration's relentless assault on the Second Amendment continues as the State Department implements a new rule which catches American hunters and sport shooters in a web of bureaucratic red-tape when traveling outside the United States.  Coming close on the heels of the withdrawn BATFE ammo ban we reported on last week, an unmistakable pattern of abuse is beginning to emerge, suggesting Obama’s last two years could prove the most challenging period in history for America's gun owners.  Read more

HUNTER-TRAPPER EDUCATION CLASSES AVAILABLE NOW
New hunters can beat the rush, get a license in time for gobbler season by taking a course this spring.

Those who plan to purchase their first hunting license this year will need to make plans to attend a Hunter-Trapper Education course, and classes are being held at locations across the state, according to the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

Springtime is a great time to complete the course.

Because the fall hunting seasons “ and the corresponding rush for new hunters to become certified “ still are months away, it can be easier to find a class now compared to later in the year.  Read more

Passing the buckby John C. Street 

They could see the deer, bits and pieces of him anyway, as he slipped across the side hill, screened for the most part by heavy patches of frost striped blackberry canes and grape tangles.  It wasn’t in a hurry but had obviously been disturbed by other hunters.  It checked its back trail as it came.  Read More
