State attorneys general urge U.S. ATF to discard proposed ammo ban
Reuters
The attorneys general of Montana and 22 other states are urging U.S. firearms regulators to drop a proposed ban on a type of ammunition popular with shooting sports enthusiasts but which regulators said could be used by criminals to harm police. The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives recently proposed prohibiting the manufacture and sale for the general public of a certain type of military-grade ammunition, M855 5.56 mm, widely used in the AR-15 rifle, because it can pierce protective vests or soft body armor worn by police.

The Associated Press via KHOU-TV
The Texas Senate has approved amending shooting tests for state residents seeking concealed handgun licenses, letting applicants use .22-caliber weapons rather than the .32-caliber ones currently required.

He added that many Texans also prefer smaller guns and should be tested using them.

The Dallas Morning News
Gun-free zones at schools, bars, sporting events, hospitals and churches would be largely obsolete, if Rep. Drew Springer has his way. Springer, R-Muenster, has authored a bill — laid out recently before a House committee — that he hopes eliminates most restrictions on where the state’s nearly 826,000 concealed handgun license holders can carry their weapons.

Prepare for possibilities not probabilities
Guns.com
Cops and military personnel wear body armor not because they're going to get shot, but because it could happen. But, obviously, you don't have to be a cop, a soldier or a contractor to prepare.

The right way to swing a shotgun
By Irwin Greenstein

Gun control advocates lose another round with departure of ATF chief
The Christian Science Monitor

Todd Jones recently was "to pursue other opportunities in the private sector," as the official announcement declared — reportedly to a newly-created senior position with the National Football League.
