Oregonians’ Second Amendment rights are being violated: NSSF lawyer Lawrence Keane
National Shooting Sports Foundation lawyer Lawrence Keane explains why he filed a lawsuit to block Oregon’s new gun law on ‘America Reports.’
A licensed gun owner shot a man at a Texas smokehouse who allegedly knocked an elderly man unconscious in a restaurant bathroom.
Just after noon Aug. 14, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office received a call from Woody’s Smokehouse in Centerville about shots being fired, the sheriff’s office said on its Facebook page last week.
Authorities said suspect Kevin Craig Anderson entered the barbecue joint that day in a “harassing manner” and “aggressively approached several customers inside the store.” Anderson is from Houston, which is roughly 115 miles south of Centerville, according to the sheriff’s office.
