SAF Compels Utah City To Roll Back Gun Laws

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation has once again compelled another city to roll back firearms regulations that run afoul of state law and the Constitution, this time in Park City, Utah.

      “We’re delighted that officials in Park City unanimously approved repealing the conflicting regulations,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. “If gun owners are expected to always comply with the letter of the law, so should government. In this case, the conflicts were pretty clear.”

Role Models For Young People
Posted By: Scott Weber 11/26/2014 @ 12:16 PM

Hey Scott--hope all is well with you up in the Great White North. 

I've been watching the Ferguson episode unfold.  I know that other than weeping for our country as to what it has become--what can be done?

Maybe someone should show this old article to Michael Brown's parents?  This is from 1993 and I remembered it all these years and kept it in mind as I raised my kids.

July 02, 1993|By MIKE ROYKO

     There has been a debate about role models lately. It started when Charles Barkley did a Nike commercial saying that he is not a role model, he is a basketball player, and that it's the job of parents to be ...

Bear Spray:  A Reality Check On Its Effectiveness and Use During A Bear Charge 

By Dave Smith, High Country News

     In 2011, Idaho’s Fish and Game Department advised hunters, “Several studies have determined that bear spray is more effective at deterring bear attacks than a firearm.”

     And Brian Peck of the Great Bear Foundation offered a different rationale to the Salt Lake Tribune: “Every time a hunter decides to shoot instead of using bear spray, they are making a decision to set back grizzly bear ...

Where do you stand on grizzly delisting?
Posted By: Scott Weber 11/26/2014 @ 09:09 AM

Sportsmen:  Here's a great discussion of the grizzly bear delisting from a noted guide/outfitters who is "living it" with these bears.  You can't talk with a Cody guide/outfitter who has not had a run-in with a grizzly while taking hunters after elk...  Grizzlies are so over-populated in this state, you EXPECT to run into them after you fire a rifle in the mountains, gutting a game animal or packing out meat...   The following blog post is from Guy Eastman, a local guide/outfitter and magazine editor of Eastmans' Publishing based out of Powell, Wyoming.  We hope for a grizzly delisting in 2015 so we can begin hunting ...

USFW Lists African Lion As 'Threatened'
Posted By: Scott Weber 11/26/2014 @ 08:49 AM

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Lists the African Lion as Threatened Under the Endangered Species Act

     Last month, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) proposed to list the African lion as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. After a long and comprehensive review of the species status, which included information from the foremost lion researchers in the world, the FWS concluded that the African lion is not on the brink of extinction and did not merit listing as an endangered species.

     In addition to the threatened listing, the FWS is proposing a special rule ...

Hauling Kids To The Turkey Shoot
Posted By: Scott Weber 11/23/2014 @ 04:18 PM

'Old Yeller' Still Hauling Folks From Park County Around For 100 Years

     Quite a day in Cody yesterday as scores of kids - 2000 strong - shot .22 cal. rifles in competition for turkeys.  Sponsored by the Lions Club, part of their service was shuffling kids and their parents to and from the shoot.  "Old Yeller" is a restored Yellowstone Park bus that was used in the park prior to W.W. I.  The Cody Lions Club brings "Old Yeller" out for special events like this Thanksgiving shoot, parades and holidays.  Good bunch, these guys!
