Ammo availability — It is pretty depressing
Ammo Land
Major Van Harl USAF Ret, a contributor for Ammo Land, writes: "For over five years I have been telling readers in my column to buy ammunition. It started before the 2007 election when ammo prices were expected to increase 30 percent and that price increase had nothing to do with politics. Then of course Obama was elected and the run on guns and ammo buying was nothing like the firearms industry had ever seen before."

Sen. Manchin: Blame me for gun control failure, not Obama
The Hill
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he should be blamed for the Senate's stinging defeat of expanded background checks for gun purchases, not President Barack Obama. "If people want to blame, I guess you blame me," Manchin told reporters at a Wall Street Journal breakfast. "I just never knew how hard it was to get the facts out. I think there is a lot more I can do to get the facts out."

Does AARP still want your guns
American Hunter
Bob Robb, a contributor for the American Hunter, writes: "A few years ago I turned 55 — a scary time for a guy who had to buy his own health insurance on the open market. Talk about sticker shock. So I thought, why not join AARP, the mega-senior's organization? Surely they have some sort of group medical insurance a member can piggyback on. It was only after I had purchased a multi-year membership that I decided to research this powerful special interest group and see what their official position was on issues important to me. First and foremost was the issue of gun ownership. What I discovered surprised the heck out of me.

Cornyn proposes plan to allow concealed-carry permit holders to take guns to other states
The Houston Chronicle
Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, proposed an amendment to the controversial gun control bill that would expand concealed-carry gun laws across state lines without obtaining a permit in the other state. The Texas Republican's plan would not permit concealed-carry permit holders to take their guns into states that did not allow individuals to carry concealed weapons.

Decorated army vet disarmed and arrested for 'rudely displaying' firearm
The New American
A prominent military blogger and self-described constitutionalist is the focus of the latest outlandish efforts by local law-enforcement agencies to impose their own brand of gun control on citizenry. On March 16 Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham, an 18-year veteran who has been decorated for valor in Iraq and Afghanistan, was on a 10-mile hike with his 15-year-old son Chris near their rural Bell County home near Temple, Texas. The area is known for cougars and wild boars, and Grisham was duly armed with an AR-15, as well as a .45-caliber handgun. Grisham has a conceal-carry permit for the handgun, and was legally carrying the rifle strapped on his pack.

Post-mortem on gun control: Supporters less threatening at polls than opponents
The Hill
Supporters of tougher gun laws did not hound Congress enough to get even widely popular reforms passed through the Senate, according to a number of observers on and off Capitol Hill. Although polls show that an overwhelming majority of voters back tougher gun laws — in the case of universal background checks, the figure tops 90 percent — that support did not translate into a legislative victory in the Senate, where lawmakers blocked the central elements of President Barack Obama's strategy for fighting gun violence.

After gun defeat, where does Obama go from here?
Roll Call
President Barack Obama has barnstormed the country promising action on gun control legislation, and the Senate acted — to vote down the heart of the bill. The president is vowing that the fight for tighter gun control measures is not over. But Obama's cache in Congress has always been low, and it appears his strategy for continuing to push the issue largely rests on something that has proved elusive to him in other recent policy fights, including this one: public pressure.

New York's assault weapon registration begins
New York's tough new gun law kicked in April 1, with owners of firearms now reclassified as assault weapons required to start registering the firearms and new limits on the number of bullets allowed in magazines. As the new regulations took effect, New York's affiliate of the National Rifle Association planned to file a court request for a federal injunction to immediate halt to the magazine limit.
