Handgun sales are hot
KETK-TV
Handgun sales are hot — particularly compact pistols that are easily concealed for self-defense. Smith & Wesson's handgun sales jumped by nearly a third at the end of last year, and Colt Manufacturing sold twelve times as many handguns early this year as it did in 2013. And now Colt is moving to boost its handgun production by 50 percent. The market for handguns is driven by a growing interest in self-defense and concerns about tighter gun restrictions.

Media feeding frenzy over open carry guns in restaurants much ado about nothing
Fox News
The NRA’s strong statement reprimanding a few people for carrying long guns into restaurants was bound to get media attention. Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action and much of the media quickly jumped in and described various restaurants as “asking customers to leave their guns at home.” But their assertions couldn’t be more misleading. The headline at USA Today saying “No Guns Inside” or at MSNBC and Huffington Post saying “No-Gun Policies” are simply wrong.

Massad Ayoob: Are long-barreled handguns more accurate?
Daily Caller
Back in the ’60’s, when Massad Ayoob was a kid-shooting bull’s-eye, he noticed most of the young and prime-of-life shooters used long-barreled pistols. The S&W Model 41 with 7-inch tube, the High Standard Supermatic series with fluted 7.25-inch barrel, and the 6-7/8-inch Ruger Mark I. The older guys, however, were much likelier to “go short” with a 5.5-inch heavy barrel on their Smith, H-S or Ruger.

Gun-grabbers can't get no satisfaction
Guns Magazine
“It seems that to be satisfied, I’d have to arrange my life and the world to conform totally to my liking — and then have them stay that way,” Buddhist author and former U.C. Davis law professor Toni Bernhad wrote in a Psychology Today article, channeling Rolling Stone Mick Jagger’s “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” theme. That seems an appropriate theme for many in the gun ban camp following a stabbing, shooting and car-ramming spree in the Santa Barbara university community of Isla Vista.

Open-carry fight continues in Texas
Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Chris Miller slung his AR-15 rifle over his shoulder and headed to the Fort Worth Convention Center. There the 24-year-old stood, talking to passers-by, telling them that he wants to see Texans openly and freely carry their handguns. “Anytime you see a firearm, it doesn’t mean that’s a criminal or there’s a crime happening,” said Miller, a member of Open Carry Tarrant County. “We wanted to come out and educate the public and show support for the cause.”
