NRA convention; Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent on tap
Los Angeles Times
The National Rifle Association's annual convention began May 3, in Houston, with leaders who have spent the year defending the group in the wake of mass shootings emboldened by the recent defeat of federal gun control legislation and ready to rally around this year's theme: "Stand and Fight." "If you are an NRA member, you deserve to be proud," Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's chief executive wrote to members, saying they "exemplify everything that's good and right about America."

Democratic state senator blocks Texas bill to permit concealed carry campuses
Campus Reform
A bill that would have allowed students and faculty to carry concealed handguns on college campuses in Texas will likely fail in the state Senate due to one Democratic senator who refused to allow the legislation to come up for a vote in the committee he controls. Sen. John Whitmire, who is the chairman of the Criminal Justice Committee, has declined to take up the legislation, calling it "very divisive" and citing the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook as a reason the bill shouldn't be considered by his committee at this time.

Young voters aren't sold on gun control
U.S. News and World Report
Young people have helped push the gay marriage issue to the forefront, with so many voters 30 and under supporting marriage equality that Republicans have been forced to accept — or at least re-examine — the matter. Sticking to an anti-gay rights agenda could cost the GOP votes down the road and many Republicans are wisely seeing that on a purely political basis, things need to change. The same trend, however, is not mirrored on the matter of gun control.

Texas Senate approves bill to let students keep concealed guns in cars on campus
Dallas Morning News
Senators voted to allow students to keep guns in their cars on college campuses, after Democrats sought and received assurances that the measure wouldn't be broadened to allow concealed handguns to be carried at universities. The bill would grant students who have concealed-handgun licenses the ability to store their guns legally in their cars on streets and in parking lots at institutions of higher education. No college, public or private, would be able to opt out, which they currently are allowed to do. Sen. Glenn Hegar, the measure's author, pledged to keep his bill limited.

GOP aims to slow federal bullet buys
The Hill
Republicans want to limit the number of bullets federal agencies can purchase so American gun owners can buy more. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., and Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., have introduced a bill that would prohibit every government agency — except the military — from buying more ammunition each month, than the monthly average it purchased from 2001 to 2009.

Rep. Lucas suspects Obama gun control 'conspiracy' to buy all the ammunition
The Raw Story
Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., recently told a conservative radio show that President Barack Obama's administration may be engaged in a "conspiracy" to purchase all available ammunition as a form of gun control. Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's National Security Subcommittee caved to conspiracies theories in the conservative media and held a hearing about whether the Department of Homeland Security was buying a billion rounds of ammunition to use against the American people.

Dems push gun control agenda in DC, but not in battleground states
The Hill
Democratic leaders are wooing staunchly pro-gun candidates to run in pivotal Senate races at the same time they are discussing a strategy for bringing gun control legislation back up for debate. The two-pronged effort has prompted Republicans to accuse the Senate Democratic leadership of hypocrisy, but Democrats say it is simply smart politics.

Poll: Obama gets negative ratings on immigration, guns
More people disapprove than approve of the way President Barack Obama is handling immigration and guns, according to a new poll by Quinnipiac University. Fifty percent don't like the way he is handling immigration policy, compared with 40 percent who do, the poll found. That negative rating is due in large part to independents, 55 percent of whom disapprove of his handling of the issue. Only 34 percent approve.
