Texas gun legislation sends mixed message
The Lubbock Avalanche Journal
Gov. Rick Perry has signed numerous legislation during this session in Austin aimed at concealed carry in Texas, while vetoing the so-called Protection of Texas Children Act, which would have created a program at public and charter schools that allows for employees with a valid CHL license to have their weapons at hand or locked away nearby. The legislation would have provided funding for training to respond with deadly force if needed in the case of an active shooter, but Perry said the accompanying cost of $10 million was too steep and also didn't address important safety issues.

Handgun training class: A bit of reading beforehand helped
Gun Digest
Corrina Peterson, a contributor for Gun Digest, writes: "The announcement said 'Learn to Shoot Pistols' With a Combat Focus Shooting clinic on my schedule for June, I thought this local basic handgun training class would be a good way to avoid showing up at the clinic completely unprepared. The class, which was for women only, offered instruction on safe gun handling, firearm storage and the basics of pistol shooting, and time on the shooting range. Students, 18 in all, varied with regard to their level of shooting experience, and included several mother/daughter participants.
