CBS News via KFLY-TV
As the debate over police-related violence persists across the country, some critics have taken it upon themselves to monitor law enforcement across America, increasingly turning to a controversial tactic known as cop-watching.

Opinion: Gun rights should cross state lines
The Boston Globe

For years the gun industry, still very much dominated by males, strived to appeal to women, so with the study the NSSF aims to inform retailers and gun makers how to engage women already interested in shooting sports by designing products women want and adopting new selling techniques.
