Bob Costas shoots himself in the foot
The Washington Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
President Barack Obama hasn't had his second inaugural and his allies already are pushing him to expend his second-term capital enacting another so-called assault-weapons ban. This reinvigorated attack on the Second Amendment is shooting firearm sales through the roof. NBC Sports' Bob Costas couldn't wait 24 hours after a tragedy before launching into a sermon on gun control during halftime on Sunday Night Football. His homily was triggered by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher's use of a legally owned gun to shoot his girlfriend, mother of his infant daughter, before killing himself. More

Editorial: Texas' gun laws work; open carry wouldn't
The Dallas Morning News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A law generally restricts someone from doing something and in a state as large and diverse as Texas, opinions will vary on how reasonable that restriction might be. And when it comes to gun laws, don't leave out intense emotion and ideology. Since 1995, Texas has allowed residents to carry handguns outside their homes, as long as they were effectively kept out of sight: concealed under clothing, in purses, in glove compartments. More

NFL players: 3 out of 4 own guns
Indianapolis Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Former NFL running back Thomas Jones was always around guns, long before he became a football-carrying member of that unofficial gun club within the National Football League. As a kid, he and his buddies fired guns in the woods in Big Stone Gap, Va. They'd shoot bottles and go hunting. His dad had guns. Jones bought his first gun his senior year at the University of Virginia and as a rookie with the Arizona Cardinals a dozen years ago, he learned quickly that guns were an ingrained part of the NFL culture.

Preparing for home defense
American Rifleman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The saying goes like this: A man's home is his castle. If you're a regular reader of firearm publications, then you already know there's no shortage of information available regarding firearms for home protection. And while we have plenty of good reasons to carefully select and regularly practice with reliable defensive firearms, they represent only a portion of what should be a better-rounded and more inclusive home-preparedness plan.

Texas AG: Employers cannot impose handgun bans by penal code notice
Lexology    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Beginning in 2011, Texas law prohibits most public and private employers from preventing employees who otherwise lawfully possess a firearm or ammunition from transporting or storing those items in a locked, privately owned motor vehicle in employer-provided parking areas. Texas employers may not impose handgun bans by posting a notice under the Texas Penal Code or by including such a ban in a mandated, federally approved facility security plan, the Attorney General of Texas has said in an opinion released Nov. 5. In addition, the Attorney General noted that, although the Texas Labor Code (Section 52.061) does not provide a specific remedy to employees for any such violation by an employer, employees might be able to pursue claims for violations against employers under the Uniform Declaratory Judgments Act.

Give a toy gun and ignite the spark of a future gun owner
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Today most modern retailers have bought into the anti-gun hate speech that kids should never touch or for that matter see a gun, plastic or otherwise. So it can be a challenge finding a quality toy gun that is not made from clear plastic or in wacky pinks and blues. We need a gun that looks like the real thing to make it worthy of a child's birthday or Christmas. More

Good gifts for gun owners
Gun Digest    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The truth is, if you're searching for hunting gifts or cool gifts for guys, gun owners as a group are generally hard to buy for. Other than buying a young hunter their first deer rifle or defensive handgun for a wife or girlfriend, you're wise to stay away from buying guns for other people. Ammo is tough, too. Only if you directly ask someone can they tell you what their particular gun likes. More
