The Daily Caller    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
NRA has been saying for years that Attorney General Eric Holder, our nation's chief law enforcement officer, is an anti-gun extremist. He's been toeing the Obama anti-gun ideological line for his entire life, and now we have more evidence. has unearthed a 1995 video of Holder urging support for a public campaign to "really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way."

Concealed carry reciprocity — What's a federalist to do?
The Patriot Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Passed by the House as H.R. 822 and pending in the Senate as S. 2188 "The National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act," is legislation which would require each state that issues pistol carry licenses to recognize those issued by other states. The debate over this issue has created a strange situation — committed leftists who believe that Congress can mandate that the several states serve broccoli in school lunches, and who have no problem with federal bureaucrats controlling intrastate toilet design are suddenly "state's rights" purists. They now utter sound bite phrases such as "... you can't make the states recognize gun rights if they don't want to ..." Allied with these folks are some real defenders of liberty, who believe that Federal compulsion of the states for any purpose is wrong. More

South Dakota governor veto of concealed weapon bill stands
Rapid City Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
South Dakotans still will need permits to carry concealed handguns. A bill passed by the South Dakota Legislature would have removed that requirement for residents with a valid driver's license. But Gov. Dennis Daugaard vetoed the bill, and the South Dakota House of Representatives failed to override that veto. The House voted 40-27 on the concealed carry bill, far below the 47-vote threshold needed to override a gubernatorial veto. Supporters said requiring people to get a permit to carry concealed handguns is an infringement of Second Amendment rights. More

The Denver Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A federal appeals court recently heard arguments in a case that could have wide-ranging implications for Colorado's gun-control laws. The case involves a Washington state man named Gray Peterson who sued Colorado and Denver after he was denied a concealed handgun permit because he is not a resident of the state.

New laws are leading to surge in gun sales
msnbc    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"Stand Your Ground" laws, may be having an impact — helping fuel a surge in gun sales. Gun buyers swamped retailers nationwide last year, prompting a record 16.4 million instant criminal background checks of potential owners, up 14.2 percent from 2010, according to FBI figures. While some buyers may not have followed through with gun purchases or may have been denied, others bought more than one, so background checks are considered a good proxy for sales in the industry.

The Scopecoat optics cover solves several problems    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dennis Haworth writes, "'New equipment is not going to solve a training issue." This simple phrase was pounded into my head by my early range master instructors. The concept is that by simply replacing a tool, you as the instructor, are not solving the user's failure to perform a task. The same goes for eliminating training in a certain area because your students cannot grasp the concept or fail at the physical act. It just means that you have to find new ways to approach the issue until you provide what the student needs to succeed. As Law Enforcement firearms instructors it is not our job to hire them, we must train them.'" More

Putting guns out in the open

Gun owners in Oklahoma could walk down the street openly packing their pistols under legislation passed by lawmakers that would make Oklahoma the first state in seven years to allow residents to openly display their handguns in public. Advocates of "open carry" laws have been pushing for several years to make it legal for gun owners to display their handguns in public places, arguing the practice would increase public safety and is protected under the Second Amendment.
