Beyerle & Beaman Win the First American Medals at the ISSF World Cup USA MAY 19, 2011 08:14P.M. Beyerle & Beaman Win the First American Medals at the ISSF World Cup USA

Jamie Beyerle with her gold medal victory in Women’s 50m Rifle Three Position This win makes it her second ISSF World Cup medal in Women’s 50m Rifle Three Position. Fridel won the silver medal just one-tenth behind Beyerle at 683.1 points (587+96.1) and Li picked up the bronze with 683 total points (586+97). American teammates Amanda Furrer (Spokane, Wash.) finished in seventeenth place with 580 qualification points and Sarah Beard (Danville, Ind.) shot 571 points.

USA Shooting FORT BENNING, GA --(Ammoland.com)- The USA Shooting Team’s Jamie Beyerle (Lebanon, Pa.) defeated Eva Friedel of Germany and Li Peijing of China in an epic come-from-behind victory at the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup USA in Fort Benning, Ga.

The day continued to shine as Brian Beaman (Selby, S.D.) won the bronze medal in Men’s 10m Air Pistol. Beaman, the 2010 Championship of the Americas gold medalist (and quota winner) in his specialty event, entered the final with 586 qualification points and shot 100.6 points in the final for 686.6 total points.

Beyerle entered the final in the fourth position with 585 qualification points. With the leader (Annik Marguet of Switzerland) three points ahead of Beyerle, her chances were growing slim with every shot. Even though the competitors were challenged by the wind in the finals, Beyerle astounded the crowd as she buried a 10.8 for her final shot. Her competitors all marked mid 9s and 8s for their final shots, so Beyerle’s deep ten was golden.

When asked about his victory, Beaman said, “I feel like I was finally able to overcome a lot of the adversity in this sport and I now have a solid inner confidence that allowed me to excel today.” Russian Leonid Ekimov, who finished ninth at the 2010 ISSF World Championships in this event, entered the final in the middle of the field. Nailing ten after ten, Leonid shot his way up to victory with the highest final of 104.2 points. Leonid finished with 689.2 total points. Portugal’s Joao Costa climbed his first ISSF podium since the 2009 season to win the silver medal with 587 qualification points and 100.8 points in the final for 687.8 total points. American Anthony Lutz (Tonganoxie, Kan.) finished with 571 points and teammate Sergeant First Class Thomas Rose shot 570 points.

National Rifle Coach Major Dave Johnson said, “Jamie has continued to build her resume and experience. She was patient in what could have been a very frustrating day in challenging wind and that discipline paid off on the last shot for a dramatic gold medal.” Beyerle finished with 98.2 points in the final for 683.2 total points.

History Channel To Honor & Commemorate 150Th Anniversary Of The Civil War

“HISTORY is the perfect partner for us to tell the epic true story of Gettysburg. We are excited to bring this battle to audiences in a powerful new way,” said Scott Free, principal Ridley Scott.

MAY 19, 2011 07:57P.M. Gettysburg will strip away the romanticized veneer of the Civil War and present the engagement in a new light: a visceral, terrifying experience with everything on the line. At its core, this is the story of the soldiers on the ground, not the generals who commanded from behind the frontlines. Compelling CGI and powerful action footage place viewers in the midst of the fighting, delivering both an emotional cinematic experience and an information packed look at the turning points, technology, and little known facts of perhaps America’s greatest battle.

History Channel To Honor And Commemorate 150Th Anniversary Of The Civil War

Gettysburg will launch a week long programming event on HISTORY, including special Civil War themed episodes of Pawn Stars, American Pickers and other specials throughout the week, details of which to be unveiled over the coming months.

Produced with the cooperation of leading Civil War historian Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump, Lee & Grant is a personal look at two iconic leaders of the Civil War. Surprising details reveal the bold choices and almost godlike power Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee summoned on decisive battlefields like Vicksburg and Gettysburg that, within days of each other, turned the tide of the war. As part of HISTORY’s Civil War Week, this special features a unique perspective, exploring how these men changed the course of American history.

Legally Armed in Detroit Detroit --(Ammoland.com)- Rick Ector, a Detroit native and a nationally accredited Firearms Instructor, has launched a blog on the Internet to encourage citizens to openly carry handguns. The blog is entitled “Detroit Open Carry.”

According to Ector, the time has arrived for city of Detroit to break ties with the racist roots of gun control.

ABOUT SCOTT FREE PRODUCTIONS: Scott Free Productions was formed in 1995 and is the film and television production vehicle of acclaimed film directors, brothers Ridley Scott and Tony Scott. With offices in Los Angeles and London, Scott Free works closely with RSA Films, one of the world largest and most successful commercial production houses in the world.

Ector stated, “Gun laws have always been most strict in cities with large numbers of black people. Detroit is no different in that regard. In 1925, Dr. Ossian Sweet was acquitted of defending his home from a mob of people who were upset with the gall of a black man who dared to integrate a white neighborhood.”

Scott Free Television, headed up by President David Zucker, produces the Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominated hit TV show The Good Wife for CBS, and the Golden Globe® nominated mini-series The Pillars of the Earth, based on the best-selling book by Ken Follett.

Bushnell Trophy XLT Spotting Scopes Helps Hunters See What They Have Been Missing MAY 19, 2011 03:22P.M. Bushnell Trophy XLT Spotting Scopes Helps Hunters See What They Have Been Missing

Rick Ector (r) with Kenn Blanchard (l) of Black Man With A Gun Fame Ector, was referring to the Michigan court case which many have credited as being the genesis of the 1927 Michigan Firearms Act. This law created County Gun Boards, required the licensing of handguns, and made acquiring Concealed Pistol Licenses (CPLs) and handguns difficult for most black people. Also, Ector concedes that there is another reason for pushing open carry in Detroit. He added, “Crime here is out of control and the local police department can’t be everywhere. A citizen wearing a firearm in a holster will serve as a visual deterrent to bad guys looking to rape, rob, and murder.” In general, it is legal in the state of Michigan for a person 18 years of age to display his own registered pistol in a completely visible holster without a special permit, as long as he does not venture into a state designated pistol-free zone.

Wisconsin Carry and our members had a “meet and greet” with Senator Pam Galloway in her District in Wausau this past week.

She fielded questions and gave great answers about the bills, the status, and what members could do to help get Constitutional Carry through the legislature. She said that rumors of the death of constitutional Carry are in no way true. Support is INCREASING.

Constitutional Carry The Smarter Fiscal Choice MAY 19, 2011 02:54P.M.

Her suggestion was to contact your own legislators, no matter what side of the issue they have currently taken and give them your views and that you want the particular legislator to support Constitutional Carry, Be polite and non-threatening and give a reason or two why you want Constitutional Carry. Make the phone call and/or email and/or letter contact (or multiple contacts) short and sweet. Do not let up. Two short messages are worth more than one long winded sermon.

Constitutional Carry The Smarter Fiscal Choice The support for constitutional carry continues to grow across the state AND in Madison.

BE SURE TO REFER TO CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY not concealed carry. Below is some additional information/links that you can use as talking points when you call/email your legislators. Again, SHORT but impactful contact is the best. Do not spend an hour writing a huge email. They won’t read it all. If you want to send multiple ideas, do it in separate short emails. Talking point #1: Constitutional carry will save the citizens of Wisconsin millions upon millions of dollars:

Today’s Tabbloid PERSONAL NEWS FOR news@ammoland.com

20 May 2011

Contact your legislators. Share with them this document. Specifically refer them to page 23 where a section on the ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO WISCONSIN of constitutional carry estimates over a half BILLION in annual savings. http://www.wisconsincarry.org/pdf/Guns_Good_Bans_Bad_WI.pdf

Rep/Senator (insert your senator/rep here) I have contacted you in the past regarding constitutional carry for Wisconsin. I wanted to pass along some additional information for you to consider as you make an informed decision about the right to carry. Here is a link to a research document that projects over a 1/2 billion dollar savings in reduced court costs, property loss, etc as a result of the decreased crime due to the deterrent that constitutional carry would have against criminals. http://www.wisconsincarry.org/pdf/Guns_Good_Bans_Bad_WI.pdf

Talking point #2: In a time of fiscal crisis in Wisconsin, “shall-issue” permits would add an expense the state cannot afford. The first link below is the FISCAL ESTIMATE of a permit system (which Assembly bill 126 would implement). Over 2 million dollar projected expense the first year and 1 million projected expense every year there-after. (DA’s didn’t agree with the estimate. I presume they think it would cost more) Newspapers are ALREADY citing the fiscal estimate of the permit system as a reason not to pass concealed carry. Constitutional Carry blows that argument out of the water.

In addition, according to the legislative reference bureau, constitutional carry would require no expenditure by the state. I know with the states fiscal crisis, this is an important factor in your decisions. http://legis.wisconsin.gov/2011/data/fe/SB-93fe.pdf

http://legis.wisconsin.gov/2011/data/fe/AB-126fe.pdf

Locate your rep and senator here: http://legis.wisconsin.gov/w3asp/waml/waml.aspx

CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY would have NO expense to the state: See fiscal estimate below. Newspapers who are citing the cost of a permit system and suggesting the state shouldn’t be spending money it doesn’t have CANNOT argue the same with constitutional carry (senate bill 93) http://legis.wisconsin.gov/2011/data/fe/SB-93fe.pdf

Carry On, Nik Clark Chairman/President – Wisconsin Carry, Inc. www.wisconsincarry.org nik@wisconsincarry.org www.youtube.com/wisconsincarry www.twitter.com/wisconsincarry facebook: Search “wisconsin carry”

Please continue to make contact with your legislators. Share this information above in separate contacts with them. Contact with legislators IS working. (that is coming straight from the mouth of the Senator who introduced Senate bill 93 (Constitutional Carry) Lastly, Wisconsin Carry in a joint effort with our friends at the United States Concealed Carry Association have launched radio ads that will be running STATEWIDE over the next 2 weeks in support of constitutional carry. You can year the ad at the following link: http://www.wisconsincarry.org/video/CarryAdd-001.mp3

About: Wisconsin Carry, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation and reclamation of the rights of law-abiding Wisconsin residents to carry in the manner of their choosing. We believe that “open carry” and “concealed carry” are choices to be made by law-abiding citizens based on their situation and preference. Wisconsin Carry, like many gun-rights organizations in Wisconsin, is investing a great deal of resources to get Wisconsin law changed to allow concealed carry this next legislative session by proposing Constitutional Carry. Wisconsin Carry, Inc. will continue to use legal recourse to deter unlawful treatment of law-abiding Wisconsin residents who currently exercise their right to open carry, and soon will exercise their right to concealed carry in Wisconsin. Visit: www.wisconsincarry.org

Word is that the legislation will come out of committee and be voted on in the next couple of weeks. NOW IS THE TIME to contact your legislators (State assembly person and senator) and ask them to support CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY. EVEN if you have never contacted your legislator before, NOW IS THE TIME. Its not complicated, just give them a call or send an email. Share the talking points above, OR simply just call and when the staffer answers the phone just say: ——————– “Hi, this is (your name) from (your city) I just wanted to call and ask that you pass a message along to Representative/Senator (your rep/Senator) to ask that he/she support constitutional carry. Senate bill 93. I want the right to carry, but I don’t feel as a law-abiding citizen I should have to register with the government and pay a permit tax to do so. If you could please let Rep (your rep) know, thank-you. ——————— If you plan to email your rep/senator here is suggested text:

protocols, such as forcing everyone to fight or shoot as right handed. Add in the realization that proper use of cover may require a shooter to be left handed.

The man attempted to leave the scene, but the bear chased him, and the man then fired a second shot at five yards, which caused the bear to drop and stop its approach. The man was then able to return to his vehicle, unharmed, and report the incident. FWP game wardens responded and killed the wounded bear. Biologists trapped and transported the cubs to the FWP Wildlife Center in Helena to where they will be held until they can be placed in a permanent facility.

But Guess what? Incoming doesn’t care what your preference is. Despite its earned reputation as a good combat rifle, the M16-series remains one of the only modern designs still in wide spread use that is not ambidextrous. An obvious problem here is the magazine catch. The design of the release is ergonomic for a righty, but not so much for the southpaw.

Wardens reported that the man acted within the law and shot the grizzly in self defense. He will not be charged in the incident. The sow was uncollared and did not have a past history of interactions with people. “We’re relieved that everyone escaped without injury,” says Mack Long, FWP Region 2 Supervisor. “It is also another reminder for people recreating in western Montana that bears are out for the season, and to always be prepared for what to do in the case of an encounter.” Tags: Bear Management, MFWP, Montana, Montana Department of Fish And Game, Self Defense

Norgon M16 Ambi-Catch

MAY 19, 2011 11:49A.M.

The Norgon Ambi-Catch eliminates this problem with a proven, mil-spec solution that is sixteen seconds away. If you can successfully operate a screwdriver (that’s Craftsman, not Tropicana, based) then you’ve got enough engineering chops to do the deed.

Norgon M16 Ambi-Catch Installation By John M. Buol Jr.

The steps are as follows: 1. Depress the magazine release far enough to unscrew the factory piece 2. Insert and screw in the Ambi-Catch in its place Firearms User Network

3. Done! Go do something else

Shavano Park TX --(Ammoland.com)- Firearms designs have been unapologetically biased towards right hand shooters.

To make this simple task even easier, Norgon offers the Ambi-Catch Tool, a rugged plastic plunger that effectively gives you a third hand for the task. This is perfect for an armorer tasked with outfitting every rifle in the unit.

There is justification for this slight, the primary reason being that nearly nine out of ten adults are right handed. Add in the long held negative stereotypes (‘sinister’ is derived from the Latin word meaning “left”) and you’ll understand why our “right thinking, wrong handed” shooters have been neglected.

Is it good? Norgon’s accessory has a NSN (National Stock Number) making it “in the system” for all branches of our Department of Defense. Since August, 2007 the Marine Corps has officially authorized its use for all units and the Canadians issue an Ambi-Catch on the C7A2.

The industry is largely transcending both superstition and lousy training

Gun owners, particularly concealed carry permit holders have been demonized by the mainstream press and disingenuous politicians for far too long. This show belongs to the law-abiding gun owner and concealed carry permit holder, not the anti-gun, freedom-haters. If someone wants to hear from the other side, they need only pick up a “news” paper or listen to any national “news” cast. On Armed American Radio, we expose them and if they’re lucky, they may just win one of my coveted Bonehead of the Week awards”, said Mark.

Associated Recreation, 271,000 hunters spent more than 3 million mandays hunting in Kansas. In addition to the official hunting incidents reported, three bowhunters fell from treestands, one fatally. In none of these incidents was the hunter wearing a restraint harness, as is taught in hunter education and bowhunter education courses. “The simple use of a fall restraint system would have prevented these incidents from occurring,” Barrett notes. “Bowhunters need to remind themselves to use these safety devices. “But the take away message from 2010 is that hunting is still incredibly safe,” he continues. “Studies consistently show that hunting is one of the safest outdoor activities, with only five injuries per 100,000 participants. With more 19 million hunters in the U.S., our volunteer hunter education instructors should rightfully feel pride in their efforts to educate students. They must be listening.”

Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks PRATT, KS --(Ammoland.com)- The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) reports that there were 17 hunting incidents in Kansas in 2010, five more than the record low of 12 in 2009. One of the accidents was fatal.

As in past years, young hunters were involved in fewer incidents than more seasoned hunters; the average age of shooters involved in these incidents was 37.

The one fatal accident occurred in Dickinson County when two turkey hunters had finished hunting for the day and were walking across a plowed field to their vehicle. The shooter stated that he was carrying his 20-gauge shotgun in the high ready position when he heard a turkey gobble behind him. He turned to his left, toward the victim, and the shotgun discharged, striking the victim in the side of the neck. The victim died at the scene.

Hunting is indeed safe. According to the National Safety Council, Injury Facts 2008 Edition, hunting is by far the safest sport. Figures show that while football players suffer 2,585 injuries per 100,000 participants, baseball players suffer 1,122 injuries per 100,000, and even billiards players suffer 15 injuries per 100,000 participants.

In an average year, about 50 percent of Kansas hunting accidents involve swinging on game while hunting upland birds. That figure held true last year, when eight of the 17 cases involved swinging on game. Although the single fatality involved careless gun handling, 2010 showed a drop in the number of careless handling incidents, a point stressed in KDWP’s hunter education courses.

Because the gun actually rests partially inside the bra cup, the only portion that is visible is the grip. This makes the gun EXTREMELY concealable! Although a larger bust line makes concealment a breeze, simply choosing a shirt with a pattern on it, or wearing a shirt with a bit of ruching or fullness allows even a lady with a very athletic physique to comfortably conceal her firearm on her body. In the event that it becomes necessary for a woman to draw her gun, she uses her weak-side hand to pull up the hem of her shirt, thus clearing the garment so that the grip of the gun is exposed and then pulls straight down on her firearm with her shooting hand. Because of the way the Flashbang Holster is made, the trigger guard is fully covered until the gun is pulled away from the body while at the same time allowing her a full combat grip on her weapon.

Looper Brand Oklahoma City, OK --(Ammoland.com)- Looper Brand is excited to announce a new development in concealed carry options for women.

This technique also presents the attacker with a major distraction (FLASH) while allowing the lady to access and utilize her defensive weapon (BANG!).

The Flashbang Holster (patent pending) is a thermo-plastic molded clamshell designed to snap in place over the barrel/slide and trigger guard of many small .380 pistols and j-frame revolvers.

The Flashbang Holster is available at either www.flashbangholster.com or www.looperbrand.com for the introductory price of $40.00.

The holster then tucks up underneath the lady’s bra band where it is secured in place by both the band itself and a soft suede strap that snaps around the center portion of the bra between the bra cups.

Current gun fits include the S&W Bodyguard .380 as well as the Bodyguard Revolver, the snub nose j-frame revolver, the Kel-tec, the LCR and LCP by Ruger, and Sig?s P238. More fits are in the works so please keep checking back for your favorite!

The open-bottom design of the holster allows the gun to be drawn simply by pulling straight down on the grip of the gun while the suede strap retains the holster.

Tags: Blade-Tech, Gun Gear, Gun Holsters, Looper Brands

The Flashbang Holster comes with three straps of different lengths to accommodate the majority of bras. Each strap has a directional snap that allows the user to quickly put the holster on and take it off, but prevents the holster from being forcibly removed or knocked loose accidentally.

Anti Gun Games Continue in Oregon MAY 19, 2011 09:46A.M. The Anti Gun Games Continue in Oregon Yesterday’s hearing on HB 2791 was as illuminating as it was frustrating.

Today’s Tabbloid PERSONAL NEWS FOR news@ammoland.com

20 May 2011

Salem, Oregon --(Ammoland.com)- HB 2791 removes the Oregon State Police as the point of contact for gun purchase background checks. Under 2791, the State Police would be replaced by the National Instant Check System.

Oddly, the public employees representative did not question whether the new “electronic” check would cost any jobs. None of the committee members asked about that either. Senator Rod Monroe seemed primarily interested in not losing any state jobs, but most committee members appeared to get the point that Oregonians should not be paying twice for the same “service,” a process they never asked for which is being provided so poorly.

35 states contact the Feds directly for these checks and buyers pay no fee for the “service.” In Oregon, when a purchase is initiated, the dealer contacts the OSP who call NICS and then OSP charges a $10.00 fee. In the last 6 months or so, gun dealers in Oregon have had serious difficulty conducting these checks due to long delays when attempting to contact OSP. Even after finally getting an operator on the phone, the wait times can be onerous. The incidence of “pended” or delayed approvals has spiked as well. Many people have reported that they could make a purchase one day and be delayed the next. People with long histories of problem-free gun buys, have suddenly faced delays, sometimes for months.

Now the bad news. The hearing was only one step. The bill cannot move without a “work session” and we have been reliably informed that the Democrats will be resisting such action. Apparently, saving millions of dollars of taxpayer money and endless headaches is less important than losing a single public employee job. So there is strong reason to suspect that the leadership in the Senate Democrat Caucus will be doing what they can (which is a lot) to stop progress on this bill. It’s by no means dead, but it is clearly in the cross hairs of the Democrat Leadership. By simply taking no further action on the bill, it will die, you will continue to face hassles and expense at the hands of the OSP, and “no one” will be to blame because no one had to vote.

HB 2791 would solve this problem by removing the middleman and simply going directly to the NICS system where no similar problems have been reported. In fact, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which represents gun dealers, has informed us that NICS has an excellent track record of rapid approvals and the only states having problems are ones which, like Oregon, use local “points of contact.”

Over in Senate Judiciary, Senator Floyd Prozanski, with the full support of Senate President Peter Courtney, is continuing to hold up any progress on House Bills 2787, 2792 and 2797. If he has not chosen a date to have work sessions on these bills by Monday, May 23rd, they will all be dead unless some legislator steps up and moves that they be removed from his committee. So time is running out.

At the hearing, Representative Greg Smith (who did an excellent job) questioned the State Police ID Unit Director who testified that gun purchase background checks subsidized many other types of checks that OSP conducts for free.

Based on previous testimony and Prozanski’s own comments, we are confident that the Senator will make some attempt to turn one of these good bills into a Frankenstein monster of an anti-gun bill. Almost certainly it will be HB 2797 which only seeks to clarify firearms carry on motorcycles, snowmobiles and ATV’s. Expect this bill to be stuffed with language to ban guns on any school property along with lots of potential other amendments. Prozanski also wanted to change the rules about the restoration of felons’ gun rights. Having failed to make his own bill go anywhere, he could well add that language to any gut-and-stuff amendments to HB 2797.

The Director, David Yandell, also testified that the ID Unit was experiencing difficulties completing background checks, but hoped things would improve. He noted that the unit plans to soon have an electronic check system that would allow dealers to conduct the checks themselves online. He also testified that even if this “new and improved” system became functional, reducing the need for staff time, that it was their intention to still seek the higher fee per check that they have requested. The current fee is $10.00. The State Police want to almost triple that to $26.00.

We believe that it is unlikely (but by no means impossible) that Prozanski can pass a “no guns in schools” bill, however what he can do, and clearly is trying to do, is torpedo every bill that can in any way be perceived as “pro-gun.” In the case of HB 2797 this is particularly troubling. All that bill does is fix a legislative screw-up from 2009. It merely provides guidance so people can avoid running afoul of the law. So Prozanski and Courtney’s actions here are particularly reprehensible.

As expected, “Cease fire Oregon” came to oppose the bill with borderline hysterical testimony and invented statistics. More interestingly, a representative for the public employees unions came to oppose the bill on the grounds that several union jobs would be lost if the Feds took over the checks. Her position was that this bill would devastate Oregon’s economy because a handful of state workers would not longer be able to pay taxes after losing their jobs.

No doubt both will be cheered by the Supreme Court’s recent decision to further eviscerate the US Constitution.

This is a fascinating premise. By her reasoning, Oregon could solve all its economic problems by hiring everyone in the state. Those people would then pay taxes and Oregon would be flush.

Jagow said his gravest concern from the delay is that law-abiding citizens who sought a sidearm for home protection would be unable to quickly obtain a pistol or revolver—and could be in jeopardy if their lives were under threat.

New York County Leaders Decry State’s Failure To Process Pistol Permit Applications

“No failure of this nature should leave any citizen, or their families, exposed and in danger. The Second Amendment exists for a reason,” Jagow said. “We have always recognized that fact in Niagara County , and taken reasonable steps to eliminate government barriers to our citizens exercising their Second Amendment rights. Now, though, this issue is leaving our citizens vulnerable. And we think that’s terribly, terribly wrong.”

MAY 19, 2011 09:33A.M. New York County Leaders Decry State’s Failure To Process Pistol Permit Applications Jagow & Updegrove Urge Governor Cuomo To Clear Administrative Roadblock on your 2A Rights.

Within hours of Jagow revealing the state executive branch’s failure to process the permit applications, the leader of the Niagara County Legislature’s multi-party Majority Caucus threw his support behind Jagow’s effort. “The Majority Caucus of the Legislature has been consistent in its support of the Second Amendment rights of Niagara County ’s citizens,” Majority Leader Rick Updegrove, RLockport said. “The delay in processing pistol permit applications is absolutely unacceptable and an affront to the rights of sportsmen.”

AmmoLand Gun News LOCKPORT, NY --(Ammoland.com)- A severe backlog in the processing of pistol permit applications by a state executive branch agency has left Niagara County officials gravely concerned about the public’s ability to exercise a fundamental right—and the safety of citizens who need to exercise that right.

Updegrove has been a leading voice in the County Legislature on behalf of sportsmen and the Second Amendment, working closely with Newfane lawmaker John Syracuse and several other members of the Majority Caucus to oppose most recently an effort by Sen. Eric Adams, DBrooklyn, to require costly registration fees on all legally-owned firearms in Upstate New York.

County Clerk Wayne F. Jagow disclosed today that more than 100 Niagara County pistol permit applications are backlogged due to the failure of the New York State Office of Mental Health to process routine background checks—and called on Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to take immediate steps to rectify the problem, which stems from cuts contained in Cuomo’s 2011-2012 executive budget.

The failure of the executive branch of government to uphold its responsibilities to law-abiding citizens under the state’s already-stifling gun regulations, however, drew Updegrove’s direct ire.

“The New York State Mental Health Office section responsible for pistol permits was slashed from four people to one,” Jagow explained. “This has produced a huge bottleneck in pistol permit applications.”

“This situation needs to be rectified immediately,” Updegrove stated, directing his remarks at Cuomo and executive branch leadership. “We support the sportsmen in Niagara County , and we support our county clerk’s demand that state bureaucracy not impede our pistol permit application process.”

By targeting the Office of Mental Health’s pistol permit section for cuts, the state’s executive branch has turned a normally routine check to verify that pistol permit applicants have not been institutionalized for mental illness into a logjam on what, until recently, was a fairly smooth and quick process. Statewide, thousands of pistol permit applications are languishing as a massive backlog has formed.

Also joining Jagow is calling on Cuomo to immediately rectify the situation was the president of the Niagara County Federation of Conservation Clubs, Inc., Chris Schotz. “There should be no reason that this is delayed due to staffing issues in Albany ,” Schotz said. “To have this delay is unfair to

Schotz noted that, in addition to home- and self-defense considerations, hunters and sport shooters were being punished by the executive branch delays, as well as individuals working in security-related fields that are required to carry personal sidearms.

“Outdoor Channel is thrilled to expand upon our strategic relationship with Comcast as we bring our genre-leading content and personalities to Charleston, South Carolina in both standard and high definition,” said Tom Hornish, Chief Operating Officer, Outdoor Channel.

Jagow warned that inaction by Cuomo would only exacerbate the situation. “Every day this problem is allowed to persist, the backlog gets longer and longer and longer,” Jagow said. “As one single box on the pistol permit application remains unchecked, an otherwise orderly process has ground to a complete halt.”

“Outdoor Channel is the only full-time network in the traditional outdoor genre to broadcast in 100 percent native HD and now, Charleston residents will be able to appreciate the picturesque sights of our rugged adventures in the pristine widescreen format.”

Christian W. Peck Public Information Officer

“The great state of South Carolina, with its scenic coastline and rolling hills, is home to many avid outdoorsmen.
