Ruger expands the popular line of Lightweight Compact Revolvers with the addition of the LCRx
The Daily Caller
“Since its introduction in 2009, the LCR has become extremely popular with conceal carry customers seeking the simplicity of a revolver,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Customers have been asking for a traditional double-action version of the LCR with an external hammer for optional single-action shooting. We were listening and have added a crisp single-action mode to the already smooth double-action LCR,” he concluded.

KETK-TV

Ah for the old days, when life was simple and Texas DPS officers carried the good old Smith & Wesson Military and Police revolver. But times change. And Texas law enforcement is changing as well — the new official sidearm will be this Smith & Wesson Military & Police.

Magpul gun firm relocating to Texas, Wyoming
The Washington Times
Magpul Industries, a firearms-accessories maker, announced that it will relocate its extensive manufacturing facilities to Texas and Wyoming, in angry response to the Colorado legislature’s passage of sweeping gun-control legislation in 2013. At the same time, the company plans to maintain a toehold in Colorado in order to continue to fight the gun bills passed by the Democratic-dominated state legislature and signed in March by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper.

'Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition': Building a legally-sound self-defense strategy
AmmoLand
Many millions of law-abiding citizens carry concealed firearms for self-defense and tens of millions more have guns in their home for the same purpose. Too often, however, these armed citizens have only a superficial understanding of the laws that govern the use of force in self-defense — and much of what they do know is simply wrong.

The Daily Caller
If you carry concealed, eventually you’ll be tempted to compromise one of these four things. Don’t give in — avoid them at all costs. We make hundreds of decisions every day. Be sure the decisions you make enhance your safety. This includes avoiding dangers, and it means having a way to defend against that which you cannot avoid.

Father contemplates Texas gun laws on anniversary of son's death
The Dallas Morning News
On New Year’s Eve in 2010, Charlie Ciotta called his son a few hours before midnight to wish him an early happy new year. They talked about safety, and the 29-year-old promised he wouldn’t drink and drive. Just hours later, Joshua Brown was dead — but not because of what his father feared. The Texas Tech student was relaxing on the couch after a night of drinking alcohol and celebrating the holiday with friends when one of them accidentally discharged a gun that was allegedly left loaded and unsecured in the home.
