The way Texas cop responds to group of armed open carry advocates makes this video viral-worthy
The Blaze
As we've noted in previous reports, sometimes things can spin out of control when open carry activists and police officers meet. That was certainly not the case in Austin, Texas, when an officer responded to a call about "suspicious" men openly carrying rifles. In a video posted on YouTube in January by the activist group Come and Take It Texas, an officer is seen approaching the armed men in a non-aggressive fashion. "Just checking you guys out," he says in the video. "I already know the law."

Ammo Land
Anti-hunting activists have petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list the African lion as a threatened or endangered species. A decision is expected any day. Dallas Safari Club officials are hoping for a ruling that favors science, not petitions. "Political pandering in Washington D.C. won't help lions," said Ben Carter, executive director of DSC.

WFAA-TV
There is constant sound and motion at DART's Convention Center Station, and it's one of Kim Lanphere's regular stops. "I use DART 30-40 times a week," she said. "At most stations, I feel relatively safe, because there's light and people." But as of recently, her feeling of safety is gone. Dallas police say she passed 23-year-old Jamail Koroma on a sidewalk near the station.

Nice-price 1911 shootout
Shooting Times
We ordered in seven basic, full-size, affordable 1911s and put them through a head-to-head shootout to find out which ones are the best buys. Anyone who has ever perused a gun magazine or surfed the Web can tell you that these companies offer 1911s ranging from plain to exotic in finish and from "GI" to "race gun" in design and function. While the price of a basic 1911 is something most of us can afford, the tariff on a top-of-the-line custom-built pistol can easily run $3,000 to $5,000.
