    Gunmaker Creates ‘Coyote Defense’ Market-7

    by

    In what we admit is an excellent business move, a major U.S. firearms manufacturer has exploited an event occurring earlier this year to promote a limited edition handgun that’s sure to generate loads of news coverage and sales.

    And when it comes to smart marketing, creating a buzz is what it’s all about.

    by

    On the long list of things a husband should share with his wife, here at the Newshound we’ve just added one extremely important new item specifically for the male owners of personal-protection firearms.

    Michigan Inmates on Roadkill Patrol-5

    by

    Saginaw County (Mich.) Sheriff William L. Federspiel had something of an epiphany while driving to work one recent morning and seeing the roadside littered with animal carcasses—skunks, deer, and raccoons.

    “Just nasty creatures rotting on the side of the road,” he told the Saginaw News. “It’s just not real pleasant.”

    Inspired, the sheriff decided to create a “Dead Carcasses Patrol Unit” comprised of jail inmates to help keep the roads clean and roadkill-free. Beginning this past Monday, a jail inmate crew, wearing goggles and latex gloves, began picking up dead animals on or along roadways and hauling them away to the local landfill.

    Online Photos Lead to Poaching Convictions-11

    by

    Here at the Outdoor Life Newshound, we’ve written it before we’ll probably (unfortunately) write it again: Poachers and game-law violators are not the sharpest tools in the shed.

    Our most recent example of this premise is Paul Harvey III of Grants Pass, Ore., who was sentenced late in April after pleading guilty to felony unlawful possession of game animals and misdemeanor unlawful alteration of a hunting license.

    Guns Stolen? Never Give Up!-8

    by

    Though it can be devastating for many gun owners, somewhere or sometime over the course of their lives, one or more of their cherished guns may be tragically lost in a home burglary or theft.

    The story of the successful recovery of a firearm taken during a 1970 burglary and returned to an Oregon man this week conveys a valuable lesson to those who have been victimized by gun theft: don’t give up and remain vigilant!

    The Logic Gap-8

    by

    Bloomberg lobbies to fight terrorism with fascism.
       
    Once again, it didn't take New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg long to exploit a failed terrorist attack to advance his own agenda.

    Hizzoner was in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, May 5, lobbying Congress to adopt the “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009” -- H.R. 2159 -- co-sponsored by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) and -- S. 1317 -- sponsored by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).

    Kagan Questions-10

    by

    Consensus of Supreme Court nominee is there is no concensus.

    The consensus from conservatives and liberals on Elena Kagan's nomination to succeed retired U.S. Superme Court Justice John Paul Stevens is there is no consensus.

    Kagan has never been a judge. She has written only a few law review articles. Her views on most issues are unknown. She is, as Paul Campos wrote in the New Republic in early May, a "blank slate."

    Here is what is known: She is pro-abortion and she favors strong federal executive (presidential) power. She will be replacing the Court's most liberal justice, an avowed opponent of the Second Amendment. In this regard, she could not be worse than Stevens. Even if she is as left wing as Stevens -- which is unlikely -- it will be a wash.

    Rubin's Rubric-12

    by

    Anti-Constitutional elitist repeats lie so often, even he believes it.

    Marc Rubin is a former advertising art director and television script writer who understands the simple maxim that if you repeat a lie often enough, many people will accept it as the truth.

    A longtime gun-control zealot and anti-Constitution elitist, Rubin attempted to bludgeon readers into believing the Second Amendment does not offer a Contitutional right to own a gun in a recent column he wrote as the NY Obama Administration Examiner.
