TABC wants you to weigh in on alcohol sales at gun shows
CNN via ConnectAmarillo.com
Gun buyers could soon be able to grab a cold one while browsing merchandise at gun shows in Texas. The state alcoholic beverage commission is considering the proposal. But reaction is mixed. For Chuck from Waxahachie, the gun show meant a new scope for an AR-15...a modest purchase considering the 400 tables of merchandise inside. Like similar shows, this one boasted fire arms of every shape, finish and caliber. What you haven't been able to buy at the shows, though, is alcohol.

Rule would require gun dealers to report thefts in transit
The Hill
Gun dealers could soon be holstered with new theft reporting requirements, federal regulators said Monday. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is looking at new rules that would require gun dealers to report the theft of a firearm that is being shipped to a customer or another gun dealer. Gun dealers and individuals who own guns are already required to report missing firearms to ATF and the local authorities, but this rule closes a gap by determining who is responsible to report a theft that happens while the gun is in transit.

Making the case to carry concealed
Guns Digest
Using deadly force to defend yourself is not a desirable event. But its necessity makes it a good one, which is why you should carry concealed. In a comment to one of Joseph Terry's recent posts, reader “Woodsman” said: “Violence, no matter how justified, will not advance what we consider good, but it allows those of us who do good, to survive.” What a profound and articulate statement of truth.

Guns and kids
Guns Magazine
The American shooting world is awash in external gun locks, gun boxes and integral trigger security devices to make your job easier. Make a dispassionate threat assessment of your household. If your kids and anybody else who might conceivably be present are old enough and responsible enough to live around firearms safely then they should be readily accessible and easily made dangerous. If there is any possibility of access by inquisitive little hands or others of any age whose judgment is in question, the weapons and ammunition must be unequivocally secured. Assess your unique situation then err on the side of safety every single time.
