At the same time, fewer blame easy access to guns now (40 percent) than two years ago (46 percent), making the mental health system the perceived top cause of mass shootings.

More older Texans are packing heat
MyrtleBeachOnline
Respect your elders — and be aware that they might be packing heat. Texans in their 50s and 60s are leading the pack in getting concealed handgun licenses. "Older folks are more concerned with their safety, recognize the dangers around them more, have more to lose and are less capable of dealing with threats by running and avoidance," said Alan Korwin, author of 14 gun law books, including "Your First Gun — Should you buy one and join 60 million safely armed American homes?"

UN Arms Treaty will be menace to US for years to come
Fox News
Secretary of State John Kerry's signature of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty was a serious error, one that will have far-reaching consequences for American foreign policy and American sovereignty. Those consequences will be even worse because the Senate, which has signaled many times that it is opposed to the treaty, will likely have no real opportunity to reject it.

If Sen. Wendy Davis decides to run for governor, she might consider how much things have changed since Ann Richards ran and won in 1990. And how much they're the same.

The 1st 9 mm
American Rifleman
In these days of nine new nines every nine minutes (or so it seems), it is well to reflect back to when the 9 mm Parabellum cartridge started with the Luger Pistol at the beginning of the 20th century. Originally designed for a hot little 7.65 mm round, the Luger was one of Germany’s great firearms, used in both World Wars. By 1950, Americans were all-too-familiar with 9 mm bullets coming their way. Even Army Ordnance had an interest in the 9 mm round and there were rumors of replacing the venerable Colt .45 with a new 9 mm pistol.
