Cornyn responds to president's new unilateral gun control effort
Your Houston News
U.S. Senator John Cornyn, R-Texas, issued the following statement responding to new planned gun control efforts by the Obama administration: "The President's end-around Congress to impose new gun control measures flies in the face of Texans and the American people, and is particularly troubling given that the laws currently on the books are so woefully unenforced."

  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.

Biden unveils gun measures, says Congress must act
The Seattle Times
Vice President Joe Biden says if Congress won't act on gun control, he'll fight for a new Congress. Biden is unveiling two new steps President Barack Obama is taking on gun violence. The executive actions don't require approval from Congress, where gun legislation collapsed earlier this year. One new step will curb the import of military surplus weapons. The Obama administration is also proposing to close a loophole that lets certain weapons be registered to corporations without background checks.

Court rules against law bucking federal gun rules
The San Francisco Chronicle
A federal appeals court ruled against state laws designed to buck federal gun rules — but advocates welcomed the court's decision for leaving open the possibility of an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with a lower court's decision against the 2009 Montana Firearms Freedom Act, which also has been adopted in other pro-gun states. The laws attempt to declare that federal firearms regulations don't apply to guns made and kept in that state.

The legalities of the new executive order Mosin-Nagant
Shall Not Be Questioned
There is some confusion circulating among people in the blogosphere and on social media as to the effects of Obama's executive order on reimportation. It should be noted that this would only apply to a small subset of firearms that were sold to foreign countries. Ordinarily, military arms are illegal to import into the United States unless they are determined by the attorney general to be "particularly suitable for sporting purposes," which the Attorney General has since 1989 (via another executive order) interpreted to mean only suitable for hunting.

CDC gun violence study's findings not what Obama wanted
Investor's Business Daily
The White House asked the Centers for Disease Control "to research the causes and prevention of gun violence." We're pretty sure that what the CDC found wasn't what the White House was looking for. The Democrats and their media allies, obsess over some shootings while ignoring many others. Kill innocents in a school or theater in large numbers and the media will fixate on the tragedy while Democrats wail about America's "gun culture."

Children and guns in the home
Down Range TV
It happened again, here in Arizona in a nearby town. A father and his four-year-old son were visiting a friend when the boy discovered a pistol hidden under a cushion and fatally shot his father, a Special Forces veteran, in the chest. For all it's worth, the pistol was a .380 ACP. Nightmarish events like this are repeated all too often. Is there something we, as firearms owners, can do to prevent these tragedies?

Bill Clinton at MLK celebration: It's easier to buy an assault rifle than to vote in America
Town Hall
During his speech at the 50th anniversary celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s I Have a Dream speech in Washington D.C., former President Bill Clinton implied it was easier to buy an 'assault weapon' in the United States of America than it is to vote in elections. "A great democracy does not make it harder to vote than it does to buy an assault weapon," Clinton said.
