The Federalist
In 2014, Americans showed the strongest support for gun rights they have in more than two decades. It was a year in which gun control became more of a liability for the Left than an asset. Early in December, Pew released a poll showing that, for the first time in more than two decades, a majority of Americans support gun rights over gun control.

Bill would require most government buildings to allow concealed handguns
WOAI-AM
They are a familiar sight when entering government owned buildings like City Hall, The Convention Center and the AT&T Center, signs advising that concealed handguns are not allowed, and occasionally warning of massive penalties for anybody who dares to carry a gun onto the premises. But State Sen. Donna Campbell, R-New Braunfels, says those signs are illegal, and she has filed a measure in the upcoming session demanding that they be removed from all but a handful of federal, state, and local government buildings.

How recoil spring rate affects timing
Shooting Times
Recoil spring rate must be balanced with the ammunition in order to keep the gun running reliably and to prevent excess wear from battering. Spring rate affects timing during the recoil and feeding cycle. If the recoil spring is too strong, the gun won't cycle reliably. This can cause failures in extraction and ejection, and feeding malfunctions by not going far enough to the rear, or by cycling so fast that the round in the magazine hasn't been pushed up far enough for proper engagement.
