State makes it tough for businesses to prohibit firearms
Houston Chronicle
Conservative Texas lawmakers love to tout their pro-business credentials and their firm belief that too much government regulation is bad for business.

But ironically, legislators have used detail-laden regulation to stymie business owners' rights to prohibit guns on their premises.

Gun rights supporters walk for freedom
CW39 News Fix
They were locked and loaded up in Conroe. Gun rights supporters from around town joined "Texas Leaders Coalition for Gun Rights" for their "Walk for Freedom." Supporters openly carried AR-15′s, hunting rifles and other long barreled guns, which is their legal right to do so.

Supreme Court ruling on Abramski could limit Obama's radical, gun-control aims
The Washington Times
The Supreme Court rarely takes up Second Amendment cases, so when it does, gun owners know their rights are in the cross hairs. The Abramski ruling will be key to determining how far President Barack Obama can push his gun-control agenda. Obama wants to expand background checks to include private transactions so that the government would know exactly who has a gun. That is not what the Founding Fathers intended.
