Survey Of 15,000 Cops Finds Strong Opposition To Tougher Gun Control Laws

According to a survey released by law-enforcement support site PoliceOne.com, cops don’t really support tougher gun control laws including 95% who feel that a ban on high-capacity magazines won’t make us safer and 71% who say new bans on so-called “assault weapons” won’t make us safer either. Via Reason, here’s a round-up of the results:

Schafer Column: North Dakota Is No Stranger To Sequester-Style Budget Gimmicks

The recent news articles about the National Park Service not being able to keep open the Painted Canyon Overlook at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park is a sure example of how government officials are trying to show the lowly citizens how wrong they are to demand a more affordable government. “We’ll show them they need

Some North Dakota Pastors Only Want Religious Liberty Some Of The Time

There were plenty of religious leaders in the state who testified in favor of legislation in Bismarck which lifts the state’s prohibition on guns in churches, leaving it up to the churches themselves. But there are some religious leaders opposed too. To me, the case for allowing concealed carry in churches is obvious. Places of

North Dakota Senate Spends 20 Minutes Debating Regulation Of Water Skiing

Several sessions ago the North Dakota legislature added a new regulation to water skiing/water tubing behind motorized water craft. It was the requirement for a spotter to help the driver of the boat/jet ski ensure the safety of the skier/tuber. But, several years later, there’s no evidence that this regulation has made water skiing/tubing any

North Dakota Senate: Yes To Guns In Church, No To Guns In Schools

Guest Post: ND Legislators Used Phony Statistics To Support Bottle Rockets Ban

It is unfortunate that HB1257, which would have lifted the ban on bottle rocket sales in North Dakota, failed on the Senate floor yesterday despite all of the available data that proves bottle rockets aren’t as dangerous as opponents would like you to think. Instead, the Senate voted to punish a product rather than people

Actor In Bloomberg Anti-Gun Ad Should Learn Proper Gun-Handling Safety

I posted about ads being run by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group earlier today, but commenters pointed out something I missed. In addition to the actor being made to look like a total rube (apparently this is how Bloomberg’s group sees those of us out here in fly-over country), he’s not practicing proper

Bismarck Theater Wants To Search Your Bags

Anti-gun paranoia comes to North Dakota: Bismarck’s Grand Theatres has posted signs disallowing backpacks and trenchcoats in its theaters; this was a safety measure undertaken in response to the mass theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., in July 2012 in which 12 people died and 58 were wounded at a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight

Apparently Nobody Has Told Barack Obama About The North Dakota Oil Boom

According to President Obama, the only people who really stand to gain from building the Keystone XL pipeline are Canadians: President Obama told a group of House Republicans at a closed-door meeting on Wednesday that the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline won’t profit anyone but Canada. Rep. Lee Terry, R-Neb., told the Associated Press that Obama
