The U.S. Department Of Education Might Buy Guns For Teachers

The U.S. Department of Education is thinking about buying guns for teachers. It is a polemic decision given that public funds will be spent.

As the Trump administration has set a cut of 13.5 percent of education spending in the 2018 budget, everyone is asking if this is really necessary.

Although the number of school shootings has not risen, the state of fear we live in has led to this decision. From left to right, this decision is not consensual.

The Leupold Mark 5HD Riflescope - A Favorite To The US Customs & Border Protection

The U.S. Border Patrol officers will be using the brand new 2018 Leupold Mark 5HD riflescope. A choice by the United States Customs & Border Protection (CBP).

It has an excellent optical performance and is particularly user-friendly. We will see agents from the U.S. Border Patrol all across the nation using the new Mark 5HD.

The New REAP-IR Thermal Riflescope Line From Trijicon´s Electro-Optics

Trijicon Inc is introducing a new thermal riflescope. It is a REAP-IR model with exceptional image quality, durable, and easy to use.

The new thermal imaging riflescope will be available in 60 mm EFL (4.5x base optical magnification) and 20 mm EFL (1.5x base optical magnification) models. Trijicon Inc is the manufacturer of Brilliant Aiming Solutions.

The Best SKS Scopes of 2018

Since we are talking about scopes, we share with you a great article about the best SKS scopes of 2018. The historical SKS is very popular among shooters and collectors.

A Soviet-era military rifle that deserves the best accessories. Get the best guidance, see our top pics, and learn how to properly mount a scope. See more here.

The Best AR-15 Carry Handle Scopes

The AR-15 is the commercial designation for the US service M16/M4 rifles and carbines. And although not all models have the carry handle, the classic AR Sporter design is still being used.  

The best option is to buy optics that attaches directly to the carry handle, through an integrated or a detachable base. But you can also employ a rail on the carry handle and mount a scope on the rail.

In our article, we help you choose a scope that easily attaches to the carry handle. Check our comparison chart of the best carry-handle scopes for the AR-15.

SAF Sues Pennsylvania Township, Official Over Gun Range Dispute

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) has filed a lawsuit against Robinson Township and its zoning officer in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

The lawsuit has been filed on behalf of William Drummond, the owner of a gun club. He claims violations of Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights. Drummond has been the owner of the Greater Pittsburgh Gun Club since 1967.

California Lawmakers Approve Harder Restrictions On Firearms Possession

California Governor Jerry Brown will evaluate three bills that strengthen restrictions on firearms.

The bills are to be considered after a man opened fire at a public event in Florida. Two people died and the shooter committed suicide.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the bills want to forbid mentally unstable individuals and domestic abusers from owning a gun.

People who want to have a permit to carry concealed weapons might have to endure eight hours of instruction and pass a test.

Potential Gun-Related Cases That Might Reach The Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court hasn’t taken a firearms-related case in eight years. But many appellate decisions might now go to the high court.

For that to happen, Judge Kavanaugh confirmation is crucial. In recent months, it has been the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit the responsible for many gun cases.

But for Second Amendment advocates, things might escalate, as tensions rise everywhere in the country.

Federal Judge Grants Preliminary Injunction in A 3D-printed Gun Case

3D-printed guns are still in discussion. Gun control advocates are still looking to prohibit plans from circulating around the net. A federal judge from Washington ruled on 27th August that the ban needs to be kept.​

The U.S. District Judge Robert S. Lasnik strengthened this ban, first issued late last month. For the judges, the downloadable plans are surpassing Americans’ First Amendment rights.

ACLU Supports The NRA In A Lawsuit Against Gov. Cuomo

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed an amicus brief on the NRA´s behalf in the lawsuit against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).

This comes after the NRA filed a lawsuit in the beginning of 2018 against Cuomo and New York’s financial regulation agency.

The lawsuit claimed the existence of a blacklisting campaign to make banks cut any ties with the NRA. The ACLU has declared that seeking to deny financial services to a nonprofit advocacy group is a violation of the First Amendment.
