Bill Abbott: Second Amendment has only one meaning, implication
The Daily Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If we are serious about knowing what the founding fathers believed about the Second Amendment, one must read their documents: "It's only beginning in the second half of the 20th century that the Orwellian view gained currency that "the people" means the states ... that "right" means governmental power, that "keep" does not mean to possess, that "bear" does not mean carry, that "arms" do not include ordinary handguns and rifles and that "infringe" does not include prohibition." S.P. Halbrook More

Fort Worth Star-Telegram    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Heather, a newlywed of 10 months, started shooting with her husband about six months ago. Shanna has been handling guns since she was a child. Carole took up shooting after her grandfather left her a CZ. She decided that if she was going to have a gun in the house, by golly she was going to know how to use it. These women were three of the more than 50 who attended a recent DIVA-WOW/XS Sights advanced handgun clinic at Fort Worth's Winchester Gallery. More

House finds Holder in contempt over inquiry on guns
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Republican-led House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt for failing to disclose internal Justice Department documents in response to a subpoena. It was the first time in American history that Congress has imposed the sanction on a sitting member of a president's cabinet. The politically and constitutionally charged dispute centered on whether the Justice Department must turn over emails and memorandums showing its internal deliberations in 2011 about the botched Arizona-based gunrunning investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious. President Barack Obama has invoked executive privilege to block the subpoena. More

The Associated Press via KXNT-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A 14-year-old boy shot and nearly killed an intruder who broke into his Phoenix home and pulled a gun on him while he was watching his three younger siblings, police said. The teen and his siblings, ages 8, 10 and 12, were at home alone when a woman rang the doorbell, Phoenix police Officer James Holmes said. The teen didn't open the door because he didn't recognize the woman. Soon after, the teen heard a loud bang on the door, rushed his siblings upstairs and got a handgun from his parent's bedroom.

Federal court defends right to keep and bear arms
NRA-ILA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ruled that it is unconstitutional for Chicago to treat people with non-violent misdemeanor convictions the same as convicted felons. The NRA-supported case, Gowder v. Chicago, involves plaintiff Shawn Gowder, who was convicted as a first-time offender for mere possession of a firearm in violation of Illinois law in 1995. His misdemeanor record did not block him from getting a state Firearm Owner's Identification card, so he could still legally possess a gun in Illinois. More

Phoenix civilians decide whether to shoot or let live    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Phoenix Police Department opens its training program to civilians to give them a first-hand look at the life-or-death decisions that police officers have to make every day. To shoot, or not to shoot, that is the question — a question that police officers are posing to Joe Blows. The simulation requires volunteers to stand in front of a wall, which has images projected onto it. Everything from domestic abuse calls to armed robberies test a person's judgment and reaction times to see if they can quickly determine which cases require lethal force. More

Concealed carry: When can you use deadly force?
Gun Digest    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When can you use deadly force? The short answer is that your attacker must possess the ability and opportunity to do you grave harm — but you must also have to have done everything in your ability to avoid a confrontation. In the new Gun Digest book Armed: The Essential Guide to Concealed Carry, author Dr. Bruce Eimer, provides more insight to this point: When would the use of deadly force by a private citizen against another human be considered judicious? How can a private citizen be authorized to kill another human under his or her own summary judgment? The very simple answer is that deadly force is recognized as a last resort for use only when you need to save your life. More

Kahr CM40: High-end quality, economical price    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Kahr isn't a company known for cutting corners. The company constructs its guns with the intention for them to endure the range and life-threatening situations. While it seems rather difficult to build a reliable and durable subcompact semi-auto pistol, Kahr actually specializes in it. The tolerances on their guns are extremely tight and if there's ever a complaint about them it's about the break-in period. Granted this type of manufacturing comes at a slightly higher price, so it's a breath of fresh air to hear that Kahr is expanding its economical line of handguns with the CM40. More
