Washington's I-594 represents a flawed attempt at gun control
By John McAdams
The upcoming election is shaping up to be an important one for gun owners in Washington state with an important measure on the ballot: Initiative 594, or I-594. Supporters of the law tout it as a simple, common-sense law requiring universal background checks for all firearm sales, but the law as written is actually nothing of the sort. In reality, I-594 is actually an extremely complicated regulation that will invade the privacy of law-abiding firearm owners, divert police resources from other tasks and do little to actually prevent criminals from obtaining firearms.

Editorial: Guns are not a health care issue
GUNS
Vivek Murthy’s nomination to become Surgeon General now has mythical status. It is the Obama nomination that will not die. Or, it’s at least a zombie nomination, because it was dead, but it comes coming back to life. Harvard physician Murthy, gun owners may recall, was originally nominated in the fall of 2012 to serve as this bureaucratic anachronism, and on Oct. 16, 2012 famously tweeted: "Tired of politicians playing politics w/guns, putting lives at risk b/c they're scared of NRA. Guns are a health care issue. #debatehealth"

Zoom function makes its way to the rifle scope
Engineering
When an Army Special Forces officer-turned engineer puts his mind to designing a military riflescope, he doesn’t forget the importance of creating something for the soldiers who will carry it that is easy to use, extremely accurate, light-weight and has long-lasting battery power. Sandia National Laboratories optical engineer Brett Bagwell led the development of the Rapid Adaptive Zoom for Assault Rifles (RAZAR) prototype. At the push of a button, RAZAR can toggle between high and low magnifications, enabling soldiers to zoom in without having to remove their eyes from their targets or their hands from their rifles.

10 tips to improve handload performance
American Rifleman
The elements of shooting are all about consistency. Sight picture, trigger control and how the firearm is held should be as close to identical from shot to shot if predictable shot placement is to occur. This is equally true when it comes to your ammunition. One of the reasons many shooters load their own ammo is to put together a load that works with the harmonics of their particular firearm, and then produce a quantity of identical cartridges.
