Gun owners of America: Good news, and some bad news
AmmoLand
The Supreme Court’s decision in the Abramski case was a lawless decree imposed by liberal judges who are way out of step with the American people — as nearly 75 percent of them agree that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own and sell guns. Gun Owners of America filed two amicus briefs in support of James Abramski, a former police officer who was eligible to own firearms and who bought a handgun for his elderly uncle who was also eligible to own firearms.

10 reasons why states should reject 'assault weapon' and 'large' magazine bans
AmmoLand
In the late 1980s, gun control groups realized that they had failed in their original goal—getting handguns banned — and began campaigning against semi-automatic firearms they called “assault weapons,” most of which are rifles. Gun control supporters demanding a ban on “assault weapons” have also demanded a ban on ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, most of which are designed for self-defense handguns. Here are 10 reasons why states should reject those bans.

Cast lead bullets, a wonderfully inexpensive experience
Gun Digest
From the time cartridges were invented in the 19th century, cast lead bullets were the projectile of choice. Many rifles and handguns were sold with an appropriate caliber bullet mould as part of the kit, so the shooter could have a ready supply of ammunition on hand. Revolvers generally shot either round balls or round nosed bullets, while the rifleman had a wider choice of bullet shapes and weights. When copper jacketed projectiles hit the scene, in the late 1880s, they revolutionized the shooting world. They gave unprecedented penetration, fouled the bore much less than their lead counterparts, and were accepted as the projectile of the future.
