Texas bill highlights issue of whether teachers should be armed
By Archita Datta Majumdar
A new bill proposed by Texas state Rep. Dan Flynn speaks of arming Texas teachers with guns and allowing them to use deadly force against students. Naturally, this has added more fuel to the fire that is already roasting a lot of tongues around the country. The bill, called The Teacher's Protection Act, offers teachers the opportunity to protect themselves both from unruly students and unwanted intrusion from others in the campus. It will also ensure that they will not face any kind of prosecution for their actions if they do use these firearms.

Why a CHL? We all have our reasons
By Ken Jolly
Breaking the ice in my training classes, I learn more about my students by asking a simple question: "Why do you want a CHL?" Stories range from previous close encounters to the unusual. A fellow instructor told me of one person who looked around to make sure no one was listening, then whispered, "killer clowns." I'm not partial to clowns myself. When you stop and think about it, anyone painting their faces like a clown can't be up to any good. The point is we all have our own reasons in coming to the decision to get a Concealed Handgun License.

How to zero backup iron sights on an AR-15
By John McAdams
Though many shooters these days use some sort of optic on their AR-15 as their primary sight, having a good set of backup iron sights is still a really good idea.

Slipping into darkness: Seeing the light on pistol lasers
Handguns
"Last year I gave top-flight competitive shooter Dianna Liedorff an assignment to cover the Crimson Trace Midnight 3 Gun Invitational," writes J. Scott Rupp. "I wanted her insights on operating in dim-light environments, especially because she's not just a competition shooter but also a police officer. This year I attended the same shoot, albeit an abbreviated version held for media." So what did he learn? "First and foremost, you're crazy if you don't have a laser on your defensive pistol."
