With the national focus on mental health as it relates to mass shootings we have seen many states begin the discussion of how to prevent these tragedies.  Many of the discussions have revolved around what has been commonly called “Red Flag Laws”.  The premise behind these laws is how to empower direct family members to be a line of defense when there is a sudden onset of mental health issues that result in a person, who has access to firearms, presenting a danger to themselves and others.

Women, What’s Your Favorite Gun?

by Gretchen A. Fritz

This article originally appeared in the Summer 2018 issue of The Illinois Shooter

Who among us hasn’t seen the videos of women being knocked on their behinds when shooting a 12-gauge shotgun for the first time? Yeah, yeah, real funny, honey.

A few months ago law abiding gun owners in a couple downstate counties, tired of being blamed for murders in Chicago, came up with the idea of Sanctuary Counties for Gun Owners.  The idea was to get county boards to pass resolutions declaring their county to be a sanctuary for gun owners.  These resolutions urged the lawmakers in Springfield to stop infringing on our Second Amendment rights.  These resolutions were a protest.

The United Nations International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) just completed another week long conference aimed at disarming you, the American Citizen.  Town Hall’s Beth Bauman reports the reference to Grassroots groups is very interesting.  The committee’s words: “...controlling and regulating small arms therefore requires action that goes well beyond national security institutions.  It includes providing alternative livelihoods for former combatants, engaging with municipal governments and the police, working civil society including grassroots organizations and community violence reduction programs as well as local businesses.
