Retailers and compliance — a proactive approach wins every time
National Shooting Sports Foundation
As a firearms retailer, how you conduct the business of transferring a legal firearm to a qualified buyer can change in the blink of an eye. New regulations get passed, new controls get put in place — and that makes negotiating the Federal Form 4473 a challenge at times. It’s a challenge to keep up with new changes in laws and regulations, but it’s imperative that retailers do. Otherwise, you’re guaranteed to fall behind — or worse.

The gun-rental loophole
Politico
In the easternmost outskirts of Austin, Texas, there’s a gun club where Matt Valentine used to shoot skeet. Families came on weekends and made a day of it — there were picnic tables, vending machines and barbecue grills. A dog slept on the floor of the clubhouse. The adjacent property was a runway for radio-controlled airplanes, which we could see buzzing around beyond the range of the light target ammo in our shotguns. The outdoor skeet fields were neither as thunderous nor as claustrophobic as the indoor firing range in town. Valentine felt safe there.

The case for allowing the blind to buy guns, from an NRA news contributor
The Huffington Post
Some people have a tinge of concern at the thought of blind people brandishing guns. The logic is that it's valuable to see what you’re shooting before you shoot. But Dom Raso, a commentator for NRA News, has a different take on the debate. In a video commentary posted online, he makes the case for allowing the blind to buy and carry guns under the auspices of self-defense and constitutional freedom.

If this sounds like you, then feast your eyes on an old Spanish pistol chambered in 9mm, the Star Model BM.

Rifle Shooter
As shooters, Keith Wood believes we spend too much time shooting from the bench. Nonetheless, benchrest shooting does require proper technique. How will you know if your rifle is capable of shooting .75-inch groups if you can’t shoot with that level of precision?

The courts advance concealed guns
Washington Examiner
Gun-control advocates are learning the downside of getting their way. Recently, a federal judge struck down the District of Columbia's ban on the carrying of concealed handguns. Anti-gun forces have been losing in legislatures for a long time. Now they are finding that even where they win, they lose. Washington used to have the strictest gun laws in America.
