Inspector general's report on 'Fast and Furious' criticizes DOJ, ATF
The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Federal agents and prosecutors in Phoenix ignored risks to the public and were primarily responsible for the botched effort to infiltrate weapons-smuggling rings in the operation dubbed "Fast and Furious," according to a report released by the justice department's inspector general. The long-awaited report also criticized senior officials at the justice department and its Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Washington for lax oversight of the attempt to block the flow of weapons to Mexico's violent drug cartels. Many of the weapons later turned up at crime scenes in Mexico and the United States, including one where a U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed. More

Dumber and dumbest

You can hardly call yourself a Texan if you don't know who our Texas Land Commissioner is, especially since he used to be a state senator. And Jerry Patterson wasn't just any state senator, either. He was the state senator who carried the legislation that allows citizens to carry concealed handguns in Texas. That may not seem like a major thing to some, but when you consider that every time a citizen in Texas stops a crime with a legally concealed and carried pistol they have Patterson to thank for that, it becomes a very big thing, indeed. And that happens several times a day, on average. So there's no telling, literally, how many lives Patterson has saved in the last 17 years. More

Low cost ways to improve your defensive shooting

Nearly 100 percent of the people reading this article have a murder prevention tool in their home: a gun. Much like a fire extinguisher, a gun can help solve a life-threatening crisis in your home or on the street. But merely having a firearm does not make you proficient in its use any more than buying a fire extinguisher will turn you into a fire fighter. You must train with that tool if you want to use it correctly in a high-stress situation. More

Pistol ownership's changing faces
Albany Times Union    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Trish Cutler's fashion show at a Hudson firehouse drew dozens of law-abiding women in search of comfortable yet stylish holsters to discreetly carry their handguns — at the workplace or a night on the town. The offerings included holster for a bra and one inside a purse. Cutler, a target-shooting enthusiast who belongs to three gun clubs, has had her pistol permit for three years. The wife and mother is among growing numbers of New Yorkers in the rising tide of women who have licenses to legally possess handguns. More

Ruffin-It: Why I have a concealed handgun license
Your Houston News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Paul Ruffin, Texas State University System Regents' Professor and Distinguished Professor of English at SHSU writes: "I grew up with guns. My father gave me my first one, an old .22 single-shot hand-me-down rifle, when I was twelve and I killed many a squirrel and rat with it. In time I graduated to a single-shot .410, which armed me for doves and crows, an occasional quail and squirrels on the run. My father taught me little as I was growing up but he did teach me to shoot and to care for guns. He didn't care whether I brushed my teeth, took a daily bath, or did my homework but if I took a gun out and fired it, it would be cleaned when I brought it home." More

How much low-light, live-fire training do you do?
PoliceOne    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Doug Wyllie, PoliceOne editor in chief, writes: "Whenever you get the opportunity to participate in low-light, live-fire training, make every possible effort to be there. I'm terribly embarrassed to say that on a couple of occasions I politely declined the opportunity to do some top-quality firearms training at night. 'Can't ... I've got family plans that night,' I'd said. It was true, I did. But today, I regret not taking those opportunities because the odds are, if I have to protect that above-mentioned family from a deadly threat, it's going to happen at night." More

Gear review: Maxpedition bags for bugging out    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
David Higginbotham, a contributor, writes: "How much can you carry? If you'll be bugging out in a well-equipped deuce-and-a-half, weight may not be an issue. If you will have to walk anywhere, weight will become a primary concern. I have a long history of wilderness wandering. I've hiked most of the Appalachian Trail. I've hiked all over New Mexico and Colorado. I spent a summer in the Boundary Waters and the Quetico, canoeing. I've lived for months at a time out of a backpack. But bugging out is different. Though weight is a factor, so is convenience." More

Bullets, ballots and bravado: It's the end of the world

Pundits from both sides of the political aisle are warning of Armageddon and the end of civilization as we know it if their candidate is not elected. Obama's opponents claim he is a foreign-born agent honor-bound to destroy America for his Muslim cabal. The left views Romney as privileged, erudite, but out-of-touch and ill equipped to deal with the common man. A lot of Republicans are so committed to reversing Obamacare that they are willing to set aside their concerns about Romney's overt Mormon connection. More
