Sen. John Cornyn: Attorney General Eric Holder should resign
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sen. John Cornyn: "Tuesday morning I called on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign from office. Let me explain why. The case against Eric Holder could begin and end with his handling of 'Operation Fast and Furious,' the program in which our justice department deliberately allowed the sale of nearly 2,000 firearms to Mexican drug cartels, and then intentionally lost track of them. In December 2010, two of these guns were found at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, yet Holder still has not held anyone accountable." More

Raul Rodriguez, who shot to death a neighbor at a 2010 party in northeast Harris County, has been called a neighborhood bully, someone who was familiar with the law - and carried a concealed handgun license.

The 47-year-old man, who was found guilty, said he fatally shot Kelly Danaher in self-defense after feeling threatened when he confronted neighbors having a loud party. More

The Lone Star State is on the verge of electing a U.S. senator who may be as bright, conservative and effective as any senator in memory. And, were this not enough, Texas may be about to elect a House member who will send House donothings scurrying for the exits. The ground-breaking Senate candidate is Ted Cruz, who, recently, forced Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst into a runoff. Dewhurst fell a few percent short of the votes needed to avoid the runoff. More

Unidentified store clerk, shot either by robbers or man with concealed handgun
Houston Press    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A clerk at the Dollar General store in Bellfort was shot and killed recently, and police say they are unsure if the fatal shot came from robbers or the customer with a Concealed Handgun License who also opened fire. The store was just closing at 10 p.m. when two men entered and began demanding money from the clerk. "One of two customers inside the store attempted to leave and noticed the suspects had locked the door," HPD says. "The male customer, who has a Concealed Handgun License, pulled out his weapon and exchanged gunfire with the suspects. During the exchange of gunfire, the female victim was struck and killed." More

Gun Review: Walther PK380: finds the good, bad and ugly about it    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Jim Downey: "The Walther PK380 reminds me of a movie. No, not a Bond flick — that'd be the PPK. Rather, of 'The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.' Not because it resembles it in any aesthetic sense, but that it's obvious to me what's 'Good,' 'Bad' and 'Ugly' about it. The PK380 is a recently introduced, medium-framed .380 ACP pistol intended for the concealed-carry market. As such, Walther wanted a design that would be relatively lightweight, easy to use and about half the cost of their somewhat pricey PPK." More

If threatened can someone speed up the Michigan Concealed Pistol application process
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Q: My family and I have been threatened by an acquaintance. We have involved the police and we have contacted a lawyer for a Personal Protection Order. But, we don't feel safe, since the person who threatened us has not been arrested and he has friends who are probably also dangerous. I own pistols but do not have a concealed license. I have been told that I can open carry. But, I don't feel comfortable doing that because of the extra attention it will cause. I've been told that it can take a while to get a CPL. Is there some way to expedite the process? More
