Guns, moms and burritos: Chipotle sparks social media uproar
Fox News
Turns out guns and fast food are an explosive mix. Chipotle Mexican Grill may have thought it was protecting potentially frightened customers when it urged people to leave their guns at home. But not so fast. It was playing with fire by infringing on the Second Amendment and bowing to public pressure from a social media campaign. The ban was bound to give pro-gun supporters indigestion. Even though the company claimed the move was voluntary, that's not how it played among gun enthusiasts who believe their rights are under siege. This smells like a step toward a total ban and activists want to use their firepower to make sure it goes no further.

Smart guns: Betting your life on your iPhone?
American Rifleman
By Mark Keefe: "The NRA Firearms Sourcebook defines a firearm as 'An assembly of a barrel and action from which a projectile is propelled through a deflagration of propellant.' I love that word: deflagration. Webster's defines to deflagrate as 'to burn down' or 'to burn rapidly with intense heat and sparks being given off.' It is hot and violent. Deflegration is not a place where I want my iPhone. I have enough trouble getting mine to read a thumbprint after eating a hamburger, let alone the stressful circumstances that might occur when I would actually need to use a firearm defensively."

Take your 'X' with you and turn the tables on a violent attacker
Ammo Land
Bob Harvey, president/chief Instructor of South Florida Gun School writes: "We have heard time and time again, move now or get off the "X" in a gunfight. I don't believe you can get off the "X". I contend that you move the "X" to get the violent attacker off of his game or Observe, Orient, Decide, and Act Loop. I have been teaching this for over three decades. It increases your survivability 10 fold."

Craig stands by 2nd Amendment support in wake of NRA magazine cover story
The Detroit News
Police Chief James Craig recently reiterated his support for the Second Amendment in the wake of a National Rifle Association magazine cover story that featured the chief advocating for gun rights. During a one-on-one interview with The Detroit News, and a press conference outside police headquarters later, Craig said he not only supports the right to bear arms, but Michigan's Open Carry law, which allows licensed gun owners to carry their firearms in non-restricted areas, as long as they're not concealed.

Bloomberg: We need to make the National Rifle Association afraid of us
VSSA
Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg appeared on CBS's Face the Nation to talk gun control. The Hill has the report here. Bloomberg continued his usual twaddle about how the NRA instills fear in elected officials: "We need to make the Congress understand that the vast preponderance of the public does not want criminals, minors or people with psychiatric problems to be able to buy guns," he said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "And we've got to make Congress understand that and vote that way."

Gun Digest
Arizona Shooters World has two stores, each with an indoor shooting range. In recent months, customers have taken one particular firearm on test drives and then home. It seems Shooters World just keeps moving Glock 19 out the door. "The Glock 19 is by far our best seller," gun department manager and buyer Don Langworthy said.
