Oregon Universal Background Check Bill Hearing Schedule for April Fools Day

Well, Oregonians, are you ready to lose your ability to privately transfer guns? A senate bill under consideration would require you to appear before a gun dealer and go through a background check. How fun would that be? It probably won’t be cheap and it certainly won’t be private. Here’s an email blast we received from the Oregon Firearms Federation: Just in time for April Fools Day, SB 941, the gun owner registration bill, is scheduled for a hearing on April 1 at 8AM in Hearing Room 50 before the Senate Judiciary Committee. We told you they were going to race this through…

New Study: How Much Do Finger Placement & Ready Position Matter?

Republished from a Force Science Institute email blast: In terms of reacting fast to a sudden deadly threat, does it matter how you carry an unholstered or unslung weapon or where you rest your trigger finger before making the decision to shoot? In other words, does any one of the various ready positions commonly taught in police firearms training really give you a significant edge in response time? A two-part study by the Force Science Institute reported in the current issue of the peer-reviewed journal Law Enforcement Executive Forum provide some answers that may surprise you if you’re a strong advocate for particular positioning ….

But most of the time I find it’s left behind…

Sorry I had to do the spoiler thing in the headline, but it puts the lead to Iowa State volleyball player Madison Ward’s editorial –  New Iowa firearm laws miss the mark – into its proper perspective.

Gun Hero of the Day: Ed Peruta

Cruising Facebook at 0 dark thirty, I saw this comment on the TTAG feed by Edward Peruta. Mr. Peruta was reacting to the Ninth Circuit Court’s decision to rehear his case – throwing out San Diego’s “shall [not] issue” permitting system – en banc. As our man Dan pointed out, the Court’s action doesn’t bode well for Mr. Peruta or Californians’ gun rights. Or maybe it does . . . If Peruta goes to the Supreme Court, the whole “shall issue” system may be struck down. Or not. In any event, we must never forget that these pro-2A court cases depend on…
