New York became the first state to enact new firearms laws in the wake of December's Newtown school shootings when the State Assembly on Tuesday ratified Monday's Senate endorsement of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's gun-control bill.
Cuomo's bill -- the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or NY SAFE -- was approved by the Senate in a 43-18 vote around 11 p.m. Monday. The Assembly's ratification Tuesday was a mere formality.
The law goes into effect immediately. As of now, magazines that hold more than seven rounds are banned in New York and universal background checks for all gun sales, regardless if they are private, person-to-person sales, are required. [ Read Full Post ]

As reported on Fox News on Dec. 27, the anti-toy guns project was first established by Rubin and the "Alliance for Survival" peace group in California in 1987. Rubin decided to re-launch the toy gun removal program after the Dec. 14 shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. [ Read Full Post ]
I’m returning to Gunsite this week for the second Outdoor Life Shooting Slam. In case you missed the boat, this event is a shooter’s dream. The winner takes home four new guns and gets all the ammo he can shoot during a week of custom training at Gunsite in Paulden, Arizona.
You can see what went down at last year’s event here.
This time around we’re taking a slightly different spin on the event. The contest winner, Josh Phillips, is an avid shooter from Alabama who has just recently started to hone his skills in action shooting. What we’ve got scheduled for Josh is a crash course in 3-gun shooting, which is going to take him from an eager novice competitor to a skilled beginner over the next four days. [ Read Full Post ]
