Armed protesters rally in Texas, denied entry into state capitol building
The Huffington Post
Armed demonstrators gathered outside the Texas capitol building in Austin, seeking to highlight the state's right to openly carry rifles. While some were unsettled by the display, the protesters said the event was designed to get people accustomed to the weapons and show that those carrying them were normal citizens. "That's why we're here. Trying to make people feel more at ease, so they don't feel that way," said Scott Smith, a member of the group Open Carry Texas, which organized the event.

USA Today
More than a year removed from his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is now a headliner in a new and equally crowded campaign.

The Raw Story
Gun-maker Magpul airlifted thousands of extended assault rifle magazines into a Colorado gun show, giving away 1,500 and putting the rest up for sale just 24 hours before a new law takes effect that makes the magazines illegal across the state. The event, "A Farewell to Arms," attracted over 3,000 gun enthusiasts who received free extended magazines with their purchases, according to CBS Denver. An additional 18,500 magazines were designated to be sold at discount, with the proceeds going to benefit a pro-gun group calling itself "Free Colorado."
