Sen. Lee: Backrgound checks could allow Holder to create gun registry
CNS News
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, took to the Senate floor and warned that universal background checks could lead to a national registry system for guns. "Some of the proposals, like for example — universal background checks — would allow the federal government to surveil law-abiding citizens who exercise their Constitutional rights. One of the provisions we expect to see in the bill based on what we saw in the Judiciary Committee — on which I sit — would allow the Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder to promulgate regulations that could lead to a national registry system for guns. Something my constituents in Utah are very concerned about, and understandably so," said Sen. Lee.

There aren't too many votes with the potential to make or break a congressional career, but the upcoming gun-control showdown on Capitol Hill is one of them. For true believers aligned with their states, red or blue, the choice is easy.

The rush to a bad gun-control law
The Washington Post
Those who support stricter gun control fear that the passage of time since the Dec. 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School will result in further watering down of measures.

Ammo availability — It is pretty depressing
Ammo Land
Major Van Harl USAF Ret, a contibutor for Ammo Land, writes: "For over five years I have been telling readers in my column to buy ammunition. It started before the 2007 election when ammo prices were expected to increase 30 percent and that price increase had nothing to do with politics. Then of course Obama was elected and the run on guns and ammo buying was nothing like the firearms industry had ever seen before."

Lone Star College stabbing spree sparks new gun control debate
Yahoo News
According to the Houston Chronicle, a 20-year-old man named Dylan Quick stabbed 14 people near the Health Sciences building on the Cy-Fair campus of Lone Star College, located just northwest of Houston. Quick allegedly used an Exacto knife and a surgical scalpel to slash people, apparently at random. Quick was finally subdued by students and was taken into custody by police. He is being held at a mental health facility without bail pending a psych examination after a judge heard a videotaped confession from Quick that suggested that he fantasized about killing people. Twelve people were taken to local hospitals for treatment while two refused treatment.
