Our friends at Brownells have made a generous donation several black rifles to the School Resource Officer program in Bismark, North Dakota. As you might expect, no everyone is happy about it or thinks it’s a good idea.

During this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we continued to focus on the topic of being an armed citizen. We have a genuine question for you; should adult gun owners have to be begged to get training?

Also, do you recall the Obama-inspired attempt to ban certain types of 5.56mm ammunition? Judicial Watch has been trying to get to the bottom of that scheme. Would you be surprised to hear the ATF has been stonewalling them?

One of the nation’s largest gun suppliers has donated nine semi-automatic AR-15 rifles to school resources officers in Bismarck, North Dakota, helping police in the state’s capital fulfill a request for additional firepower to protect students.

In August, the Bismarck Police Department submitted a budget proposal that included nearly $26,000 to purchase new rifles, gun safes, bulletproof vests and medical kits to treat gunshot wounds. The cost was supposed to be split evenly between the school district and police department, but the county said it wouldn’t pay for the AR-15s themselves, according to The Bismarck Tribune.

From www.ammoland.com:

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), a component of the Department of Justice, for 1,900 pages of records about a proposed reclassification that would effectively ban certain types of AR-15 ammunition as armor-piercing (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-02218)).

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the agency failed to respond to a May 14, 2018, FOIA request for the 1,900 documents about the Obama administration’s AR-15 ammo ban efforts. The documents include ATF talking points about the “Armor Piercing Ammunition Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” and other records discussing ammunition classification.
