There's a gun-range arms race in North Texas, and North Richland Hills is winning
Dallas Observer
When it was first announced, all the way back in January, the Frisco Gun Club billed itself as the nation's largest indoor shooting range. Nine months later, as club prepares to open this month, it has dropped that claim, focusing instead on its luxurious VIP lounge and culinary offerings. There's a reason. In July, it became clear that the Frisco facility, at 43,000 square feet, would be dwarfed by a 100,000-square-foot shooting range and gun shop planned for Colorado. Turns out, it won't even be the biggest in Dallas-Fort Worth.

John Cornyn blasts signing of UN Arms Treaty: 'Send inspectors to Texas!'
The Inquisitr
Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, released a scathing press release lashing out at the Obama administration over a new U.N. guns treaty. John Cornyn was at odds with some of the GOP establishment before his tough talk on gun laws, after failing to support Ted Cruz's Obamacare "filibuster." But in a press release, Cornyn charged that Obama's signing of the U.N. pact amounts to the "latest in a long line of the Obama Administration's attempts to trounce on the constitutional rights of law-abiding Texans and Americans across the country."

You are 3 times more likely to be shot by police officers than concealed carry permit holders
Ammo Land
In 1994, when Arizona started its shall issue concealed carry weapon program, there was considerable interest in how many and what types of homicides would be related to the new law. Attempting to determine how the homicide rate of people with CCW permits compares to that of police officers is not an easy task. There are several sources that show that people with CCW permits are far more law abiding than the general population.

Wayne LaPierre: The United Nation's treacherous assault on our freedom
The Daily Caller
The tyrants and dictators at the United Nations will stop at nothing to register, ban and eventually, confiscate firearms owned by law-abiding Americans like you and me. The U.N. has been working for nearly 15 years to force its gun banning Arms Trade Treaty on the United States. Now, thanks to President Barack Obama, they are closer than ever.

Shutdown halts Border Patrol agents' training
Lubbock Avalanche-Journal
By early next year, the Border Patrol's busiest sector on the Southwest border was supposed to receive about 350 freshly trained agents from its academy in New Mexico. But, that training center and three others like it that train tens of thousands of federal law enforcement officers each year from 91 different federal agencies have been shut down by the budget fight in Washington.

The New York Times knows what you should know and you need know no more
The New York Times' recent 6,000-word major opus, "Children and Guns: The Hidden Toll," is the latest installment in the paper's self-described series on "the gun industry's influence and the wide availability of firearms in America." In this article, it took the authors 75 paragraphs before they acknowledged that federal statistics, in fact, show a dramatic 30-year downward trend in accidental deaths involving firearms.

Letter: Veterans need gun permits to prevent mass shootings
The Daily News Journal
Greg Segroves, a Daily News Journal reader, writes: "I heard 'His Majesty King Barack the 1st' and I hope the last, on the news saying that these mass shootings have to stop. We all know what that means: more laws and executive orders that infringe on our Second Amendment rights rather than realistically dealing with the problem. I do agree with 'His Excellency' on one thing. These shootings need to stop."

My life as a convicted gun offender who did nothing wrong
Brian D. Aitken, a contributor for Vice, writes: "I got sentenced to seven years in prison for legally owning guns. I had purchased them in Colorado and brought them with me to New Jersey, home to some of the harshest gun laws in the country, where I moved to be closer to my young son. I complied with all of the regulations, but one day the police searched my car and charged me with unlawful possession of a weapon — even though my handguns were locked, unloaded and in my trunk. The court said it was on me to prove that I wasn't breaking any laws, which obviously was very difficult. When Reason magazine covered my case, it wrote, 'Even the jurors who convicted him seem to have been looking for a reason to acquit him. But the judge gave them little choice.'"

The Virginia Gazette
Following the recall of two Democratic state senators in Colorado recently over their support for gun control laws, a third faces possible ouster, an outcome that would shift control of the state Senate to Republicans.
