Tea Party, Democrats team up to block lawmakers looking for gun perks
Fox News
It's not a political alliance people are used to seeing. But in states like Texas and North Carolina, Tea Party supporters have been teaming up with Democrats to defeat measures that would expand gun rights for lawmakers but not the general public. In Texas, the House defeated a measure that would have given prosecuting attorneys and lawmakers permission to carry guns anywhere they wanted to in the state.

Precision vs. accuracy
American Rifleman
In terms of defensive handgun shooting, it's important to understand the differences between the words accuracy and precision. For your average everyday range trip, precision is what gets the blood pumping — watching as rounds strike repeatedly inside the center-most rings of a target is nothing short of wholly satisfying. In practicing for self-defense, accuracy is what should be valued, which can be simply defined as hitting your target.
