Oy vey. A Jewish pro-gun group is raffling off some of the strangest AR-15 rifles we've ever seen.

The rifles from Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership come engraved with a Star of David, fashioned like an American flag with rifles on either side, as well as the phrase, "Gun control is not kosher."

Cops: Joe Colter Accidentally Shot Friend, Says He Never Received Handgun's Owner's Manual

Categories: Guns

Joe Colter didn't receive an owner's manual when he bought his 9mm handgun. If he had, he might have read the part that explains how when you rack the slide to eject a bullet, another bullet takes its place. And he might have prevented the accidental death of a friend.

Police say Colter, a 20-year-old Glendale resident, admitted he and a friend were joking around Wednesday night when he unintentionally shot and killed the friend, who is not named in court documents.

While gun-control advocates have been showing off a report that shows more Arizonans have died from bullets in the last few years than car accidents, that report neglects the number-one cause of injury deaths in Arizona -- poison.

A report on injuries released today by the Arizona Department of Health Services shows that 4,546 people died from injuries in 2011, and one-quarter of those people were killed by poisoning.

Arizona is still one of a handful of states where more people die from being shot than die in motor-vehicle accidents.

Arizona was one of only 10 states with more deaths-by-gun than deaths-by-car in 2009, and is only one of 12 states in 2010, now the most recent data available. As you can imagine, a pro-gun-control group has issued this report.

Senator Jeff Flake
A Valley mom whose son was killed last year in the movie-theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, slams Senator Jeff Flake in an advertisement that's about to hit Phoenix airwaves, thanks to Flake's vote against a proposal for more background checks on gun purchases.

Caren Teves recently made news after showing that Flake had sent her a handwritten note that "strengthening background checks is something we agree on" -- before he voted against an amendment to strengthen background checks.

Phoenix police and Mayor Greg Stanton have announced that another $100,000 from an anonymous donor will keep the gun-buyback program going.

The funds for the program ran dry in the middle of the second of three scheduled dates for the buyback, which started with an initial $100,000 donation. An additional 72 guns were given to police in exchange for nothing after the grocery-store gift cards ran dry on Saturday.

Pricey Colt AR-15 Assault Rifle Among Guns Turned in at Phoenix Police Buyback Event

Categories: Guns

After New Times writer Matthew Hendley reported that Phoenix police took in an assault rifle at last weekend's "buyback" event, we were curious what kind of gun it was.

Turns out that, in exchange for a $200 gift certificate, an anonymous donor gave up a Colt AR-15 believed to be good condition, a firearm that might have netted a seller $1,000 to $2,000 on the open market.

The donor apparently needed inner peace more than money.
