Does the 4th Amendment apply to gun owners?
Mint Press News
If someone owns a gun, is that enough for law enforcement to justify violating that person's Fourth Amendment rights with a no-knock raid? It's a question gun owners in Texas were hoping the U.S. Supreme Court would answer once and for all after Collin County police officers searched Texas resident John Quinn's home without knocking or announcing their entry. But recently the court declined.

Walther CCP — Concealed Carry Pistol — full specs, pricing revealed
Guns.com
Walther is officially unveiling their new CCP — Concealed Carry Pistol — an upcoming single-stack subcompact with an action that is far from ordinary. Of course, we got the scoop ahead of time when Walther slipped and accidentally (or "accidentally") posted details of this pistol on their website. With the cat out of the bag they are releasing all of the details on this interesting new pistol ahead of schedule. Walther had originally intended to hang on to their announcement until the upcoming NRA Annual Meeting, which will take place in Indianapolis, Ind., April 25-27 this year.

Connecticut state police: No door to door gun confiscations
Info Wars
Following a backlash by several second amendment groups, the new head of the Connecticut state police has promised that there will be no door-to-door gun confiscations targeting residents who have refused to register their firearms with authorities. Earlier this month, second amendment group Connecticut Carry called on the government to either enforce a Jan. 1 law which mandates residents register assault weapons or high capacity magazines by going ahead with mass gun confiscations or repeal the law altogether.

'Gun control' messages 'evolve'
Guns Magazine
Time was citizen disarmament zealots didn't feel the need to hide their intentions. The goals of The National Coalition to Ban Handguns and Handgun Control Inc. were pretty clear just by their names. That they now bill themselves respectively as the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence says much about their perceived need to mask what they're really after. And nowhere is the need to disguise intent more apparent than the way the term "gun control" is being replaced with another term, "gun safety." Who could be against that?

ATF v. ARES Armor more than a war of words
The Shooting Wire
Recently, the ATF escalated what had to that point been a war of words with Oceanside, Calif.-based Ares Armor. That's when ATF agents raided Ares' Oceanside location and seized what we've been told was as many as 6,000 of the Ares/EP Armory lowers that are at the heart of the matter. No Ares employees were arrested in the raid. A YouTube video shows ATF Agents examining a computer on a sales counter while an irate female asks "would you want me bursting into your home?"

Cornyn and NRA join to block Obama's anti-gun Surgeon General nominee
Texas GOP Vote
After President Barack Obama nominated Dr. Vivek Murthy to be the next Surgeon General of the United States, a man described by the New York Times as "an internist and political ally," Texas Sen. John Cornyn and the National Rifle Association are joining forces to block the approval of the nomination according to statements they made to Breitbart Texas. In late February, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., engaged a procedural process known as "a hold" to stop the nomination from moving forward.

Analogy fail
Shall Not Be Questioned
Sebastian for Anti-Gun Folks, writes: "I know many people think I should ignore the Brady Board member from Minnesota, but as a leader in their movement, I think it's worth pointing out how they think. Earlier this week she managed to put together a coherent argument, even though the analogy fails on every level."

Navy Yard shooting deemed 'preventable' but not for the fashionable reasons
National Review Online
Supervisors of the gunman who killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard last year noticed his erratic behavior well before the shooting but did not reveal any problems to the government, a Navy investigation has found. "Had this information been reported, properly adjudicated and acted upon, [Aaron] Alexis's authorization to access secure facilities and information would have been revoked," the report said — and the shooting might have been prevented.
