The cost of freedom?    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There are many reasons why shooters reload ammunition: some handload because they want to improve accuracy, others because they have trouble readily finding the proper caliber ammunition for their gun and still others because they need more wallop to get the job done right the first time. But perhaps the biggest reason many shooters become reloaders is the cost and in the days of a slow economy with everyone just scratching gravel to get by, saving a few dollars wherever you can doesn’t hurt. The question is, how many dollars (if any) are you saving? More

CBS News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The family of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry says he might still be alive if only he'd been told that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was allowing "hundreds of high-powered assault weapons to flow to Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations" in Operation Fast and Furious. Terry was part of an elite Border Patrol team patrolling the Arizona desert near the U.S.-Mexico border on Dec. 14, 2010, when he was gunned down by illegal immigrants. Two rifles from Fast and Furious were found at the murder scene. More

Dayton Daily News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ohioans are embracing their right to keep and bear arms in record numbers, mirroring a national trend that means gun manufacturers are making huge profits which may go higher if President Barack Obama is re-elected. Smith & Wesson reported record net sales of $136 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, up 48.3 percent from a year ago. The company recently raised its full-year sales forecast from between $485 to $505 million to $530 to $540 million because of consumer demand. More

5 guns you didn't know John Moses Browning designed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
John Moses Browning is arguably the greatest firearm designer who ever lived. Sure there have been innovations since his death, but the scope of his work still stands. Browning invented the 1911, the Winchester 94 and the M1919 machine gun, all of which are still in use today. While there are plenty of others that are equally as well known as the ones above, has compiled five more Browning models you may not know about. More

Filmmaker looks to put spotlight on California gun laws    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Award-winning producer and writer Kris Koenig is hoping to create a documentary that investigates gun laws in the Golden State, which as we all know is a hotbed for draconian gun control measures.

Editorial: Governor should reconcile New Mexico park's conceal-carry policy
Albuquerque Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
State law doesn't prohibit carrying a concealed handgun in New Mexico's nearly three dozen state parks. State Park policies do. That contradiction sets law-abiding gun owners up to violate a regulation that's out of step not only with state statute but national practice. So it makes sense for Gov. Susana Martinez's administration to reconcile the discrepancy. MORE

Nation's capital to revisit gun laws for visitors
The Washington Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A bill that would decriminalize gun and ammunition possession charges for some legal firearms owners from outside Washington, D.C., caught traveling through the District with their weapons goes before a D.C. Council committee Monday, a potential change to the law that comes too late for one Capitol Heights man. The bill would allow the attorney general's office to offer an "administrative disposition" rather than criminally prosecute cases in which residents outside the District are found in the city with unregistered guns or ammunition.

Crime wave has Germans debating gun laws
The Sacramento Bee    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Not long after the Polish border crossing into Germany fully opened in 2007, the Russian mob arrived. But it took until this summer for people in this newly-capitalist German region of farmland, forests and lakes to start fighting back. Small businesses have lost millions of dollars' worth of agricultural and construction equipment to thieves from beyond the German border. The thefts have made some Germans wary of their neighbors and triggered an unprecedented debate on gun use, as well as the installation of private fences, electric gates and surveillance systems.

British police: No desire to routinely arm officers despite double homicide    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Two unarmed British police officers were recently shot dead by a lone gunman who lured them to a faux crime scene. The shooter, 29-year-old Dale Cregan, phoned the police station to report a burglary in the Mottram district of Greater Manchester. When police constables Fiona Bone, 32, and Nicola Hughes, 23, arrived on the scene, they were ambushed with gunfire and a grenade. The killing of constables Bone and Hughes reignited the debate on whether British law enforcement should be armed. But top police officials maintain that arming police is not the answer. More
