Video: Lawmakers to Consider End of Campus Gun Ban
from WFAA-TV
When Texas lawmakers start meeting next month, they'll decide whether college students will be allowed to carry more than books to their classes. Bills will be filed to expand the concealed handgun law that allow permit holders to carry their guns on private and public college campuses. "There is no real reason to believe that a law that has been so successful in our general population will fail when it is taken into a college campus," said James Dark, of the Texas State Rifle Association.

Grassroots Group Petitions to Allow Unconcealed Gun
from Politico
A grass-roots Web site is seeking to make Texas an "open carry" state, allowing citizens to wear unconcealed handguns. Texas is among only five states in the nation — New York, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Florida and South Carolina — that does not permit the unconcealed carrying of a handgun. The site,, has similar petitions in every state but New York. More

New Rule Lifts Ban on Firearms in National Parks
from The Associated Press
People will soon be able to carry concealed, loaded guns in most national parks and wildlife refuges. The Bush administration said Friday it is overturning a 25-year-old federal rule that severely restricts loaded guns in national parks. Under a rule to take effect in January, visitors will be able to carry a loaded gun into a park or wildlife refuge -- but only if the person has a permit for a concealed weapon and if the state where the park or refuge is located also allows concealed firearms.

Don't Look for a Last Word in America's Gun Debate
from the Washington Post
For decades, partisans on both sides of the nation's gun-control debate looked to the Supreme Court as some believers await a sign from the messiah: Someday, the justices would rule, and then, like it or not, we would know. Finally, firearms would be freely available as a basic American right, or they'd be strictly regulated, restricted to limited purposes. But here we are, less than six months after the high court ruled 5 to 4 that the District's ban on handgun possession violated the Constitution's Second Amendment, and the partisans are at their battle stations, arrayed on either shore of the Potomac like the Hatfields and McCoys of yore.

Gun Groups Don't Trust President-elect
from The Hill
Gun groups say they are "prepared to fight" the incoming administration on the issues dear to them despite President-elect Obama's insistence that lawful gun owners "have nothing to fear" from him. Obama, appearing on at a Sunday press conference, said he believes "in common-sense gun safety laws, and I believe in the Second Amendment." But Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association's (NRA) political arm, said membership in his organization is growing at record levels, and a number of reports show that gun sales are up by as much as 50 percent nationally since Obama won the presidency.More

Video: Hunters Mentor Texoma Boys
from KAUZ-TV
About 50 Texoma boys are learning some new skills this weekend. It's all part of the Northwest Texas Field and Stream annual Boys' Deer Hunt. But it's about more than just bringing home a big buck. The Northwest Texas Field and Stream Association has been hosting the annual Boys' Hunt for more than 30 years. The event gives kids who would not otherwise have the opportunity, a shot at hunting their first deer. Each participant is paired with a guide who walks them through each step of process. More

The Evolution of the Modern Semi-Automatic
from Shooting Illustrated
When it comes to the ultimate in accuracy, most people turn to bolt-action rifles. Except for service and action rifle competitions, this is true for almost all other types of target shooting from smallbore to bench rest to 1,000-yard matches. It is also true for most hunting that requires a particularly high level of accuracy. However, thanks largely to efforts by the military shooting community to field extremely accurate semi-automatic service rifles, we have entered an era where the semi-automatic rifle has become so accurate that it is competing solidly with, and often beating, bolt-actions at their own game. In the field and on the firing line, more and more of today’s marksmen are abandoning the crank handles. More
