What you need to know about Texas gun law changes
The Cross Timbers Gazette

This article is to summarize what is believed to be how some "top ten" new laws will be interpreted.

  You Need to Carry IWB

When it comes to concealing a handgun, inside the waistband holsters (IWB) are the stealthiest way to go.
Most people think that carrying IWB means sacrificing comfort. We highly recommend Old Faithful Holsters' Stealth-Tuck holster to get the job done right.

White House eyes 'gun trust' loophole
The Hill
The Obama administration is working to close a loophole in the nation's gun laws that allows for some machine guns and sawed-off shotguns to be sold without the buyer submitting fingerprints or photographs. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is working on a new regulation that would require more background information when the weapons are sold to someone through a corporation or legal trust.

Worried about nonexistent shootings, activists pressure Starbucks to ban guns
The Daily Caller
When was the last mass shooting at a Starbucks? July 7, 1997. It was an attempted robbery, and three unarmed employees were killed. Still, persuading the national coffee chain to convert all branches into gun-free zones is a top priority of the gun control group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, which has called for a boycott of Starbucks on Aug. 24.

Handgun review: Custom Taurus Judge
The Daily Caller
When the Taurus Judge first popped on the scene sometime around 2007, the big bore wheelgun, capable of firing virtually every .45-caliber round ever developed as well as .410 shotgun shells, was regaled for its novelty more so than respected for its true intention: To create one bad ass defensive handgun. But regardless of what drove the initial interest in the Judge, the interest was indeed there, and has continued so that Taurus continues to add configurations to the line that continues to garner plenty of fans — no small feat in this age of semi — auto handgunning.

Overmilitarization: Why law enforcement needs to scale down its use of military hardware and tactics
The Heritage Foundation
In 2013, there are thousands of SWAT teams in America. Federal, state and local government agencies use military-grade hardware and tactics not only to deal with states of emergency for which they are well-suited, but also to conduct regulatory inspections for which they are not. The resulting overmilitarization has inflicted a great deal of unnecessary harm. Potent law enforcement tools designed for exceptional cases have been wielded too readily, leaving catastrophic damage in their wake.

American Rifleman
There is one sure fire way to always survive an attack on the streets — avoidance. If you can avoid a confrontation, you will survive a confrontation. While carrying a concealed handgun means you can probably go anywhere with confidence, it doesn't mean you should.

Wave Goodbye: The list of firearm manufacturers fleeing gun control states
The Daily Caller
In recent months, several traditionally anti-gun states and Colorado, have enacted laws that abuse the rights of the average citizen and offend their corporate citizens. The situation has led to an exodus of gun manufacturers to more friendly climes, with anti-gun states losing the significant tax revenue and jobs these companies provide.

Teachers at this School are Packing Heat
Fox News
A Christian school in Arkansas has a warning for would-be attackers: Be prepared to meet your maker if you try to harm their students. "Staff is armed and trained," reads a sign posted outside the school. "Any attempt to harm our children will be met with deadly force." Sharon Brownlee, an avid reader of our website, took the photograph outside her daughter's private school in Bryant, Ark.

Domestic violence, due process and gun-rights
Ammo Land
Domestic violence makes us think of battered women. It is that, and it is more. Sometimes the real victim is abused twice; once by their abuser and once by the law. We need the full due process of the legal system to protect the innocent victim of domestic abuse. We want the law to make things better. At worst we want the law to do no harm to the innocent party. That simple requirement makes good law hard to find. The innocent person can be savaged by average laws in the hands of corrupt prosecutors and clever accusers. We've seen this time and again with gun laws. Let me show you the evil hidden in poorly crafted laws that take guns from those "accused" of domestic violence.
