Gov. Cuomo: Gun confiscation and forced buy-back an option
Info Wars    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state of New York is serious about gun confiscation. The Democrat and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development told an Albany radio station he plans to propose a package of draconian legislation during his State of the State address next month. "I don't think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, 'I need an assault weapon to go hunting,'" Cuomo said, according to the New York Times. "There is a balance here — I understand the rights of gun owners; I understand the rights of hunters." More

The term 'assault weapon' is just a PR stunt meant to fool the gullible
Heartland News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Senator Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., has announced that she will be introducing legislation to reenact the ban on so-called assault weapons that she authored in 1994. The evidence is in on the effect of her previous assault weapons ban: zero, zilch, nada, as the saying goes. The ban made no perceptible difference in the gun violence statistics when it went into effect and no perceptible difference when it was allowed to expire 10 years later, in 2003. More

Armored backpacks and a rush on guns after Connecticut Shootings
Worchester Telegram & Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Ken Larson's 1-year-old son starts school in a few years, he'll be carrying an armored backpack. After the Connecticut school shooting, Larson and his wife decided to buy him one just to be safe. Larson already owns one himself that he takes to movie theaters. "It's a no-brainer. My son's life is invaluable," said Larson, 41, of Denver. "If I can get him a backpack for $200 that makes him safer, I don't even have to think about that." More

Have Americans changed their minds on gun control?    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recently, a psychopath killed 20 small school children and 7 women in cold blood at an elementary school in a quaint New England town. It was an unspeakable tragedy that rocked the nation to its core, compelling many Americans to reexamine their own convictions about guns and gun control. As Americans begin to finish this process of self-reflection one question emerges: has the American public changed its mind on gun-related issues? More

Guns would make schools safer
San Antonio Express-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The deadly gunfire inside a Connecticut elementary school has prompted a number of Texas elected officials to push for more guns, not fewer, in schools and other public places. Texans taking the pro-gun view include Gov. Rick Perry, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler, and newly elected state Rep. Jason Villalba, R-Dallas, who said that he'll file legislation to allow each Texas school to appoint a member of its faculty as an undercover "school marshal." More

3 factors of IWB holsters
American Rifleman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Inside-the-waistband holsters are some of the most popular rigs for concealed carry and for good reason, as they are one of the best ways to conceal a defensive handgun. They can be concealed with just about any sort of covering garment, and they adequately minimize the gun's outline on the clothing. In addition, IWB holsters are manufactured by just about every holster maker in operation, giving consumers a wide selection from which to choose. However, there are three important factors to consider when selecting an IWB holster. More

El Paso's West, East sides have the most concealed handgun license holders
El Paso Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Interest in getting concealed handgun licenses has been steadily increasing in El Paso during the past two years and after the recent shootings that killed dozens of people at a movie theater in Colorado and an elementary school in Connecticut, obtaining a license makes sense to some residents. Lower Valley resident Angie Morgan, 52, obtained her license in April to protect herself during out-of-town trips and while horseback riding, but in the wake of the massacres in Aurora, Colo. and Newtown, Conn., she thinks such slayings are possible in El Paso.

Guns & Ammo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Shooters, hunters and gun owners in general are always searching for ways to attract youngsters to the shooting sports. It's definitely a focal point for organizations like the National Shooting Sports Foundation, National Rifle Association and Youth Shooting Sports Alliance. And while the editorial staff at Guns & Ammo tries to cover all aspects of shooting and firearms, it's sometimes difficult to stress how important it is to convince parents to introduce their kids to the shooting sports.

Texas town lets teachers carry concealed guns
WFAA-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For more than a century, Harrold has barely been a stop between Wichita Falls and Amarillo. But this little town 135 miles northwest of Fort Worth is now getting a lot of attention. The Harrold Independent School District has 103 children in its one school. There are already cameras on campus and even magnetic door locks. But after the Virginia Tech massacre, Harrold's Superintendent, David Thweatt, decided to do more. More

Lawmakers look to boost guns in school
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While the federal government and some states ponder more rigorous gun control laws after the shootings at a Connecticut elementary school, some Texas legislators have taken the opposite approach. They have emphasized what they see as a need to make firearms more available, and their discussions have included increasing access to guns for teachers and other school personnel. More

More or fewer guns? The experts are divided
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Two governors, a congressman, various state legislators and a host of conservative commentators joined the chief executive of the Gun Owners of America this week in suggesting that the country needs more guns, in the right hands, to prevent mass murders like the one at a Connecticut elementary school. Such opinions strike many blue-state Americans as absurd. Gun control advocates often cite studies showing higher rates of suicide and homicide in firearms-permissive cultures, with strikingly lower rates in nations with strict controls on weapons. More
