Ammo shortage hits shooters, retailers
Sullivan Journal
It's the form of gun control that few people saw coming. No ammo. At least, certain types of ammunition has become extremely hard to find and very expensive when it surfaces. The hunt for 9mm, .22-caliber, .380 and a few other popular bullets intensified after the Obama administration resurrected the gun control debate following the November election and Sandy Hook Elementary massacre in December.

You Need to Carry IWB

When it comes to concealing a handgun, inside the waistband holsters (IWB) are the stealthiest way to go.
Most people think that carrying IWB means sacrificing comfort. We highly recommend Old Faithful Holsters' Stealth-Tuck holster to get the job done right.

Texas lawmaker wants tax holiday for guns, ammo sales
The Miami Herald
Texans love their independence — and their guns. State Rep. Jeff Leach, R-Plano, is proposing to give Texans more of both. Leach has filed the "Texas Gun Ownership Reinforcement Act," a bill to create a new tax-free holiday where consumers won't be charged taxes on guns, ammunition or hunting supplies one day out of the year: Texas Independence Day, March 2.

Few Texas gun owners seem to be sweating DC push for new limits
Dallas Morning News
In Texas, all the talk in Washington, D.C., about background checks and banning firearms seems like just noise far, far away. "There's an attitude here in Texas. We're a little bit complacent, because we don't feel they're going to come down here and do that to us," said Don "Dusty" Hathorne, a cowboy action shooter and staunch opponent of gun control. At the Texas State Rifle Association convention and gun show, the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school and a push by the White House and congressional Democrats to tighten gun laws were clearly on people's minds.

Firearms equality movement gaining momentum
Ammo Land
The newly emerged Firearms Equality Movement is gaining more steam among manufactures and gun rights supporters alike. The firearms industry, in reaction to the governor of New York ramming through the NY SAFE Act which banned AR-15 style rifles, has seen multiple manufactures revise their firearms sales polices to restrict LEO and Police Agencies from only buying the same level of firepower as is allowed for the average citizen of their state.

Want to sell your gun? Not so fast
Colorado lawmakers are working on a "universal background check" law that would require private individuals who want to sell their guns to do background checks on potential buyers. Minnesota and several other states are proposing similar legislation. But what exactly would they do? Would Ralphie's father, he of leg lamp fame in "A Christmas Story," have to do a background check on Ralphie before giving him a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas? And would Sylvester Stallone be filmed doing paperwork before he grabs a weapon from a fallen comrade in one of his shoot-'em-ups?

Louisiana city wants power to 'disarm individuals' during crisis
Info Wars
Guntersville, Ala., Mayor Leigh Dollar is working with city officials to pass an ordinance that would give police the power to "disarm individuals" during a disaster, a chilling example of how the Second Amendment is being assaulted via the back door. The new rule would allow authorities to confiscate guns of "unruly" people during an extreme weather event such as the April 2011 tornadoes or any other emergency. The ordinance states officers could disarm individuals, if necessary, reports ABC 31. "Dollar says the proposal is just way to give officers more authority to protect themselves."
