In Texas, Democratic gun owners say their party isn't against guns
KERA-TV
In Texas, it’s generally assumed Republicans get the gun vote. But there’s a group of Democrats who are hoping to turn that around at the state convention in Dallas. Gun owners want to make sure the Democrats’ state platform doesn’t shoot the party in the foot. Daniel Barnett owns an AK-47 with a 30-round clip because he likes to take along a lot of ammo when he target shoots. He’s not sure it’s something Democrats in other states get. But he knows the 80 Democrats jammed into a gun owners’ caucus do.

A guide to the interstate transportation of firearms
AmmoLand
Federal law does not restrict individuals from transporting legally acquired firearms across state lines for lawful purposes. Except those explicitly prohibited by federal law to include convicted felons; persons under indictment for felonies; adjudicated “mental defectives” or those who have been involuntarily committed to mental institutions; illegal drug users; illegal aliens and most nonimmigrant aliens; dishonorably discharged veterans; those who have renounced their U.S. citizenship; fugitives from justice; persons convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence; and persons subject to domestic violence restraining orders. Therefore, no federal permit is required (or available) for the interstate transportation of firearms.

Once again the military bought into some gun company’s marketing hype and ditched a successful design for a smaller-caliber weapon with no perceivable gains.
