Barry Smitherman is only Texas AG candidate with CHL
Texas GOP Vote
Barry Smitherman is the only candidate in the Texas Attorney General race with a Concealed Handgun License. The fact that Barry Smitherman actually packs heat, on top of the fact that he got an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association, is why it is believed that Barry Smitherman is clearly the best gun rights Texas AG candidate over Ken Paxton and Dan Branch. Anyone can talk a good talk about supporting gun rights, but Barry Smitherman actually practices his right to bear arms.

Grisham fined $2,000, promises to appeal
Killeen Daily Herald
Army Master Sgt. Christopher "C.J." Grisham was fined $2,000, the maximum fine allowed under the statute. However, he won't have to serve time in jail. A jury of three men and three women found Grisham guilty of interfering with the duties of a Temple police officer, a Class B misdemeanor, which could have been punished with both a fine and up to 180 days in jail.

ATF chief faces tough challenge at troubled agency
For the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, nothing seems to come easy. The agency runs at a fraction of the size of its much larger law enforcement counterparts. Under pressure from gun rights groups, it operated without a Senate-confirmed leader for seven years. And its new leader, B. Todd Jones, only narrowly averted a congressional roadblock to win confirmation this summer after serving more than two years as an interim leader.

Portraits of Americans and their guns
British-born photojournalist Charles Ommanney set out to capture the essence of one of the most intimate relationships that many Americans share —a love affair with their guns. In a photo series Ommanney's portraiture of everyday Americans with their firearms is at once provocative and nuanced, an antidote to the often caricatured portrayal of gun owners as snarling gun-nuts or right-wing radicals.

Ohio House approves 'stand your ground' gun bill
Dayton Daily News
The Ohio House approved "stand your ground" legislation, voting 62-27 on a bill that would also ease requirements for carrying a concealed firearm in Ohio. The bill now goes to the Ohio Senate. Under House Bill 203, Ohio would recognize other states' concealed carry permits if those states recognize Ohio's permits. The bill also lowers the number of required concealed carry training hours from 12 to four.

Dewhurst to Congress: Did NSA spy on gun owners?
The Texas Tribune
Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst called for a congressional investigation into whether the National Security Agency's domestic spying program has ever targeted gun owners, kept a list of firearms purchases or tracked gunshow visits. "Under the Obama Administration, a number of our constitutional rights have been threatened, most notably our right to bear arms," Dewhurst said in a letter to John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, the state's U.S. senators, and U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, the Austin Republican who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee.

Intended Knockout Game victim shoots back
The newspaper in Lansing, Mich., came so close to getting it right: An intended victim of the Knockout Game pulled a gun and shot at his attacker. So far so good. This version of the game had a twist: Instead of punching the victim in the face, the predator used a taser — a KL-800 Type Stun Gun capable of generating 1.8 million volts. The assailants had scouted the site, the victim and even practiced firing the taser. But then it all went wrong. Or right.

Armed protesters rattle Texas moms' gun-control meeting
USA Today
The sudden appearance of about 40 armed men outside a Dallas-area restaurant was the latest confrontation between an open-carry gun-rights group and a mothers group advocating gun control that was meeting inside. Police monitored the incident at the Blue Mesa Grill in Arlington, but took no action because it is legal to carry long guns openly in Texas.
