Maryland gun laws increasing gun ownership: Even among criminals
The Daily Caller
Starting in October anyone who wants to buy a gun in Maryland, the "free" state, will have to jump through a maze of new regulations, and that is just for the guns that aren't being banned outright. Anything considered too dangerous for you, the average tax paying peon, to own will be banned. That means "assault" rifles and handguns will be verboten as well all magazines that can accommodate more than 10 rounds, unless owned before Oct. 1 that is.

Manchin unapologetic on guns (but still playing defense)

The crowd gathered for an event billed as an economic roundtable, but their junior senator opened with a laundry list of issues: coal, Obamacare, taxes and spending, student loans, immigration and then, dead last, perhaps the toughest issue he's faced in his young tenure.

Overmilitarization: Why law enforcement needs to scale down its use of military hardware and tactics
The Heritage Foundation
In 2013, there are thousands of SWAT teams in America. Federal, state, and local government agencies use military-grade hardware and tactics not only to deal with states of emergency for which they are well-suited, but also to conduct regulatory inspections for which they are not. The resulting overmilitarization has inflicted a great deal of unnecessary harm. Potent law enforcement tools designed for exceptional cases have been wielded too readily, leaving catastrophic damage in their wake.
Best 1911 rail guns at every price point
The addition of Picatinny rails are part of the modern makeover for John Browning's classic Model 1911. The presence of a rail really comes down to the intended application for each individual 1911 operator — whether it be for duty, everyday carry, personal defense or part of a collection. Picatinny rails essentially bring the Model 1911 into the realm of modern firearms. Attaching weapon-mounted lights and lasers to the old workhorse improves its versatility in several environments.
