Mouseguns, Then and Now

A frequently-encountered fixture at the gun store is the crusty old dude leaning on the counter...it doesn't matter if he's leaning on the employee side or the customer side, he's there somewhere...and intoning that all these new-fangled nine millimeter pistols are silly and calibers don't count for self defense unless they start with "four". Given the persistence of this hoary myth, where did all those .38, .32, and even .25 handguns come from back in the good ol' days? For starters, dispe...

‘So frustrating’: Doctors and nurses battle coronavirus skeptics

By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH | Associated Press MISSION, Kan. — Treating the sick and dying isn’t even the toughest part for nurse Amelia Montgomery as the coronavirus surges in her corner of red America. It’s dealing with patients and relatives who don’t believe the virus is real, refuse to wear masks and demand treatments like hydroxychloroquine, which President Donald Trump has championed even though experts say it is not effective against the scourge that has killed over 210,000 in the U.S. Mont...

Judge doubts Kansas COVID-19 rule, blocks it for 2 churches

A federal judge signaled that he believes there's a good chance that Kansas is violating religious freedom and free speech rights with a coronavirus-inspired 10-person limit on in-person attendance at religious services or activities and he blocked its enforcement against two churches that sued over it. The ruling Saturday from U.S. District Judge John Broomes in Wichita prevents the enforcement of an order issued by Gov. Laura Kelly against a church in Dodge City in western Kansas and one in J...

‘Panties in a Bunch’: Kansas Official Blew Off Concerns About 2018 Polling Place Move

The House Oversight Committee revealed Wednesday new information about how local election officials in Kansas botched the relocation of a polling place that put Dodge City’s single site for voting at a location more than a mile from the nearest bus stop. The move by Ford County in 2018 to move the city’s sole polling place outside city limits prompted an ACLU lawsuit and national controversy, particularly because the city’s population is 60 percent Hispanic and the new location was not access...

Cimmaron's Wyatt Earp USA –  -(AmmoLand.com)- While most of us are happy with our semiautomatic striker-fired pistols these days, the old tried-and-true revolver seems to keep poking its head up and making a comeback of sorts.

The Not-So-Wild West

Ammo.com: Hollywood has a clever way of distorting our perspective on history, and a great example of this is Western film – a movie genre we’ve all come to love. Cattle rustlers, guns blazing, outlaws running loose, and vigilantes dishing out vengeance indiscriminately. These scenes have become more synonymous with the American Frontier than Winchester and their “Cartridge That Won the West.” But these fictional tales have produced more than entertainment for over a century; they’ve also contri...

Primer: Voting Rights Advocates See Some Success In Georgia, Defeats Elsewhere

Georgia continues to be the site of some major voting rights battles, as its Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R) faces off against Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams in the governor’s race. The latest shenanigans have to do with concerns about a potential data vulnerability that was identified by a voter late last week and was passed on to Kemp, who has been sued over his office’s failure to address similar election security issues. Instead of investigating the vulnerability, Kemp’s secre...

Should voting be incentivized?

Netvote founder Jonathan Alexander is considering a rewards system in his blockchain-based API. Incentivizing voters with a tax credit could increase participation. Australia penalizes non-voters, but incentivizing the process might encourage enthusiastic responses.
