United Nations attacks Second Amendment
Info Wars
Walter Kälin, a Swiss international human rights lawyer who sits on the committee, criticized the "extreme domestic habits" of Americans, including the upholding the cornerstone to the Constitution, the Second Amendment. Kälin cited a "staggering figure" to argue in favor of eliminating the right to own guns — there are 470,000 crimes committed with firearms each year, including about 11,000 homicides. "We appreciate the position taken by President Obama on these issues. Nevertheless, much more needs to be done to curb gun violence," he said.

Does the 4th Amendment apply to gun owners?
Mint Press News
If someone owns a gun, is that enough for law enforcement to justify violating that person's Fourth Amendment rights with a no-knock raid? It's a question gun owners in Texas were hoping the U.S. Supreme Court would answer once and for all after Collin County police officers searched Texas resident John Quinn's home without knocking or announcing their entry. But recently the court declined.

Home defense for the family
American Rifleman
Very few would argue that having a home-defense plan is not an important thing. Unfortunately, most folks limit the scope of their thinking unnecessarily when considering home defense. Home defense is not just about using a firearm to defend against a violent criminal attack. It is also about defending the home and family against fire, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and any other situation, man-made or not, that places the family in danger.

Cornyn and NRA join to block Obama's anti-gun Surgeon General nominee
Texas GOP Vote
After President Barack Obama nominated Dr. Vivek Murthy to be the next Surgeon General of the United States, a man described by the New York Times as "an internist and political ally," Texas Sen. John Cornyn and the National Rifle Association are joining forces to block the approval of the nomination according to statements they made to Breitbart Texas. In late February, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., engaged a procedural process known as "a hold" to stop the nomination from moving forward.

Whitetail hunting tips: Secrets to off-season scouting
Outdoor Life
While most hunters spend their spring weekends waiting for turkey season, Aaron Milliken spends hour after hour studying Google Earth. He dedicates so much time to the virtual mapping program partly because it's his job, but also because he knows it's the first critical step in finding and patterning mature bucks. Milliken is a Land Specialist with Whitetail Properties (a real-estate company that deals some of the best deer hunting land in the country) and it's his job to assess properties and predict how trophy bucks will utilize them.

Miller: Law enforcement realizes good people with guns deter crime
The Washington Times
When President Barack Obama makes a pitch for more gun-control laws, he likes to have a phalanx of blue-uniformed police officers behind him. These press conferences are supposed to convince us that law enforcement believes more restrictions on Second Amendment rights makes society safer. But Obama's visual is a deception, because only a few liberal, big-city police chiefs continue to put politics over public safety.

House bill would grant universal concealed-carry reciprocity in all 50 states
Guns.com
A bill currently in the U.S. House of Representatives would do away with the patchwork of state reciprocity laws and establish a uniform right to carry concealed firearms across all 50 states. This bill, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013, was introduced last August and would treat concealed carry permits like driver's licenses, allowing current permit holders to carry in any other state that issues permits.

20 years of Brady Law failure
Ammo Land
The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence is touting the 20th anniversary of implementation of the Brady Law, requiring that buyers at gun shops pass a background check before every purchase. They're marking the anniversary with a "report" extolling the program's success and promoting their current target: criminalization of private firearm transfers. The catch phrase for that campaign is "Finish the job." The problem is that the job will never be finished.

Threat avoidance
Gun Digest
Reader Chris C. writes: "I listened to your great training on how to avoid gunfights and really like the tactic of aggressive gun presentation and sharp verbal commands, but you didn't talk much about how to avoid risky situations in the first place. Isn't that just as important?"

This is what happens when you shoot 300 BLK in a 5.56 rifle
Guns.com
This shooter was lucky. If that hadn't been a bull barrel that thing would have split apart like a banana. Apparently the mag blew out and the firearm didn't go unpunished. We have to assume the cartridge chambered by driving the bullet deep into the case. That would certainly be possible with sub-sonic loads, which leave a lot of case space unused. That would also help prevent an even more catastrophic failure.
