Girls only gun groups popping up through Texas    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The female-only shooting group "A Girl & A Gun" is giving Texas belles an opportunity to learn gun safety in a much more familiar environment. The organization was started by a single gun-owning gal, and it has grown to include 14 chapters across Texas. More and more ladies are buying guns, so of course these gals want to hit up the shooting range and practice with their new toys. Michele Shulte, an NRA-certified gun instructor who teaches at the Snook chapter, says that their trigger therapy "is awesome." More

Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As we reported recently, the ongoing effort to fully vindicate the fundamental, individual right to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense took a major step forward with House passage of H.R. 822, the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011." The bill, sponsored by Reps. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., and Heath Shuler, D-N.C., has 245 cosponsors and was approved in the U.S. House of Representatives by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 272-154. After passage in the House, the bill was sent to the Senate, where it remains. Since November, the Senate has failed to take any significant action on the bill. More

Four glove compartment guns for 21st century shooters, drivers    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Many people keep a handgun in their glove compartment or the center console, especially if they live in a state that is more permissive to concealed carry and though they will probably never find themselves in a situation that requires them to shoot one handed while driving, keeping a gun in your glove box can be your saving grace (as many violent attacks do involve a person's vehicle in some way.) So the question remains, what gun would be ideal to carry in the glove box these days? More

Neither racism nor guns is the problem
The Observer Group    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The media are determined to make a traditional liberal, anti-gun narrative out of the Trayvon Martin shooting and will cobble together any items necessary to keep the flames fanned. A recent story out of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune's Tallahassee bureau combined the Martin shooting with Gov. Rick Scott's "quick rejection" of the Tampa mayor's request for a concealed weapons ban near the Republican convention in August. More

GOP closer to holding Holder in contempt
Politico    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Republicans have a new ultimatum: If Eric Holder doesn't deliver a trove of Fast and Furious documents to Capitol Hill by mid-June, the House will vote to hold him in contempt of Congress. A contempt vote would not only represent a dramatic escalation in the investigation into the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal, it would be a crowd pleaser for conservatives who believe GOP leaders have been dragging their feet on the push from Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif. to bring a contempt vote on Holder. More

Florida and concealed handguns
LP Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
On Dec. 22, 1984, Bernard Goetz shot four young black men who tried to mug him on a New York City subway train, resulting in his conviction for illegal possession of a firearm. Although none of his victims died, Bernard Goetz became known as the "subway vigilante" and came to symbolize frustrations with the high crime rates experienced in New York City during the early 1980s. The Goetz shooting sparked a nationwide debate on race and crime in major cities, as well as the legal limits of self-defense. As a result of this case the National Rifle Association and other pro-gun lobbies were able to wage successful campaigns to loosen state and local restrictions on the concealed carrying of firearms. It was revealed during the trial that the gun that Goetz used in his assault had been legally purchased in Florida and then taken to New York City where gun purchases and possession are much more strictly controlled.
