Colorado shootings reignite gun control debate
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
VideoBrief In Colorado, people often hike into bear country carrying pistols, cowboys ride horses with a rifle holstered behind the saddle, and professors and college students routinely carry concealed weapons. So the horrifying mass shooting at a movie theater that left 12 people dead recently raises the question: If the theater had not been a gun-free zone, would a civilian have stopped the gunman? Some gun-rights advocates say the tragedy shows why people should be allowed to carry concealed weapons in more, not fewer, places. More

Mexico attacks American gun rights
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Mexico has emerged as the leader in spearheading the effort to internationally regulate civilian firearms at the U.N. Small Arms Treaty meetings in New York City. The delegation from Mexico has said, "This treaty must cover all type of conventional weapons, without differentiation on its supposed use." Just as we warned, Mexico is using the Obama administration's Fast and Furious debacle as their justification to weaken your Second Amendment rights. You see, the corrupt Mexican government has been working closely with the Obama administration even before the U.N. Small Arms Treaty meetings to coverup their inability to control drug violence on their border. More

UN gun control treaty will reveal gun laws Obama really supports
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sometime soon, the U.N. will finally unveil its Arms Trade Treaty. The exact date the treaty will be released is a secret. Russia, China, France — with its new Socialist government — Britain and the Obama administration are writing the treaty behind closed doors. Yet even if the final treaty is being kept under wraps, we still have a pretty good idea of some of the requirements that will be in it. More

J. Victoria Sanders: "When I was 6-years-old, my mother and I were robbed at gunpoint by two men looking for cash. One of them placed the gun at my head until she gave them her mink coat, which looked real but wasn't and the bus fare she had in her pocket. The incident was the first thing that came to mind when, more than 20 years later, I started the application process for a concealed handgun license." More

Florida man who shot suspects during Internet cafe robbery will not face charges
Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The 71-year-old Florida man who fired his gun at two men trying to rob a crowded Internet cafe will not face criminal charges, an assistant state attorney general told Bill Gladson, the attorney, said he reviewed the security video from the Palms Internet cafe in central Florida. The video shows patron Samuel Williams pulling a handgun and shooting. He continues firing while the suspects fall over each other as they run out the door. Gladson said in the memo Williams' use of force was lawful under Florida's statutes regarding individual's rights to use deadly force when resisting a forcible felony, like a robbery. More

Police firearm training, a video look
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This video highlights several skills officers need to develop. First, officers arrive on the scene of a violent crime in commission and act decisively to stop the threat and control the scene. Note the way they execute magazine changes. Rather than dropping the magazine while retrieving a second mag, officers retrieve the second magazine, then perform a tactical reload, maintaining control of the magazine in order to maintain control of their equipment. Of course, if the threat is intensifying they would want to drop the mag and reload as quickly as possible, but practicing as demonstrated allows them to maintain control of their equipment whenever possible.

At Fort Worth, Texas, gun show, gun owners tout 'stand-your-ground' laws
Fort Worth Star-Telegram    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As area gun owners browsed handguns, rifles and ammunition, some were touting "stand-your-ground" laws and urging more states to adopt similar provisions, even as a national debate continues over whether to repeal them after the February shooting death of a Florida teenager by a neighborhood watch coordinator. The Florida case, along with others in Texas and elsewhere, has focused on whether stand-your-ground laws should be scaled back or eliminated. But at a Fort Worth gun show, the focus was quite different. More

With gun rights under fire, are you 'all in' for 2012?
The Daily Caller    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
AWR Hawkins: "As I've written before, the right to keep and bear arms is the only right our Founding Fathers described as 'necessary to the security of a free state.' This designation is in the very language of the Second Amendment. Yet here we stand, perhaps unaware of the insidious actions of the Obama administration and therefore, perhaps unprepared for the all-out assault that will soon be launched against the Second Amendment."

Austin American-Statesman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Austin police had been on the cusp of busting three people they suspected of trafficking machine guns to the Zetas drug cartel when the presence of two children had them preparing to call the whole thing off, a detective said in federal court recently. Through a cooperating informant posing as a gun seller and a man brokering the deal, police had been negotiating for weeks to complete the sale of fully automatic AK-47 rifles to a San Antonio couple with cartel connections, Detective Jesse Prado testified.
