KETK-TV
From July 21: Richard Martinez's son was killed after a shooting on the University of California Santa Barbara campus this May. Out of that tragedy came the rallying cry, "Not one more!"

Jason Villalba wrote The Protection of Texas Children Act, which allows school districts to create a School Marshal in all K-12 schools.

13. Why the US military made the right decision ditching the M1911
Guns
From July 7: When the United States military chose the Beretta Model 92 to replace the all-American M1911 as the standard sidearm, people lost their minds. It was as if society forgot about the M16′s failure in Vietnam and all the men who died as a result, did so for nothing. Once again the military bought into some gun company’s marketing hype and ditched a successful design for a smaller-caliber weapon with no perceivable gains.

16. 9 great concealed carry belts
Guns & Ammo
From April 28: It's absolutely critical to have the right belt for concealed carry. Anyone who regularly draws from a holster knows a bad belt will impede the ability to properly pull the gun out in a dynamic situation. Civilian dress belts are designed to be stylish and to perform one basic task; preventing the world from seeing your underpants. Department stores don't design belts for carrying guns — but the companies on this list had concealed carry in mind when developing their belts.

17. TABC wants you to weigh in on alcohol sales at gun shows
CNN via ConnectAmarillo.com
From Aug. 18: Gun buyers could soon be able to grab a cold one while browsing merchandise at gun shows in Texas. The state alcoholic beverage commission is considering the proposal. But reaction is mixed. For Chuck from Waxahachie, the gun show meant a new scope for an AR-15...a modest purchase considering the 400 tables of merchandise inside. Like similar shows, this one boasted fire arms of every shape, finish and caliber. What you haven't been able to buy at the shows, though, is alcohol.

KHOU-TV
From June 30: Last year, almost 67,000 women in Texas got a permit to carry a concealed firearm. But some of them complain they often have to keep their guns in their purses because they can’t find a comfortable way to hide the weapon on their bodies. “Most holsters have been built for men's bodies," said firearms instructor Karla Pohl. "Women are built differently, and we dress differently."

19. 4 concealed carry compromises to avoid
The Daily Caller
From Jan. 6: If you carry concealed, eventually you’ll be tempted to compromise one of these four things. Don’t give in — avoid them at all costs. We make hundreds of decisions every day. Be sure the decisions you make enhance your safety. This includes avoiding dangers, and it means having a way to defend against that which you cannot avoid. Playing a guessing game that tries to predict when trouble may strike is foolhardy.

AmmoLand
From Feb. 10: This week's Law of Self Defense: Question of the Week comes from "Alliance Bean," who asks: "What's your opinion on reporting to law enforcement when drawing your weapon to fend off an attack without witnesses? Any downside?" This is a great question, one that I'm sure everyone who carries concealed has asked themselves at one point.
