Stockman to 'persecuted' gun manufacturers and owners: 'Come to Texas'
The Houston Chronicle
Major gun manufacturers are being left "homeless" as the states where they are based continue to pass tougher gun laws and Rep. Steve Stockman says Texas is more than willing to take them in. Stockman, a Republican from Friendswood, Texas, sent a letter to all "gun manufacturers and owners, persecuted by radical anti-gun legislators," inviting them to Texas, which he says is the ideal place for relocation. Colorado, Connecticut and Maryland have recently passed new bills that Stockman calls "draconian" and "unfriendly" to gun manufacturers.

Amid his recent high-profile effort to draw firearms manufacturers to relocate to Texas, Gov. Rick Perry is also expressing an interest in amending state law to allow Texas-based firms that only sell guns to Texans to sidestep federal regulations.

Sen. Manchin: Blame me for gun control failure, not Obama
The Hill
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he should be blamed for the Senate's stinging defeat of expanded background checks for gun purchases, not President Barack Obama. "If people want to blame, I guess you blame me," Manchin told reporters at a Wall Street Journal breakfast. "I just never knew how hard it was to get the facts out. I think there is a lot more I can do to get the facts out."

Decorated army vet disarmed and arrested for 'rudely displaying' firearm in Texas
The New American
A prominent military blogger and self-described constitutionalist is the focus of the latest outlandish efforts by local law-enforcement agencies to impose their own brand of gun control on citizenry. On March 16 Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham, an 18-year veteran who has been decorated for valor in Iraq and Afghanistan, was on a 10-mile hike with his 15-year-old son Chris near their rural Bell County home near Temple, Texas. The area is known for cougars and wild boars, and Grisham was duly armed with an AR-15, as well as a .45-caliber handgun. Grisham has a conceal-carry permit for the handgun, and was legally carrying the rifle strapped on his pack.

Texas gun-rights champion: 'Obama couldn't pass a stone'
The Washington Times
While gun-control proponents derided the Senate for failing to expand background checks on certain gun sales, a Texas conservative hailed the vote as "a victory for peace and civil liberties." Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, said the amendment to a firearms bill from Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Patrick J. Toomey, R-Penn., — which was voted down, 54-46 — was an "anti-gun power grab."

North Texas eNews
Anyone with the least bit of doubt about how popular hunting wild hogs and predators is in the Lone Star state need only to have been in Waco at the inaugural Predator and Wild Hog Expo, held at the Waco Convention Center. Scurry Outdoors South did a great job of hosting the event and guides, outfitters and manufacturers of outdoor products filled the booth spaces with their wares from one end of the convention hall to the other. The public was obviously hugely interested in the theme of the show — predator and hog hunting — which was evidenced by the much larger than expected crowds for this inaugural event.

Does AARP still want your guns
American Hunter
Bob Robb, a contributor for the American Hunter, writes: "A few years ago I turned 55 — a scary time for a guy who had to buy his own health insurance on the open market. Talk about sticker shock. So I thought, why not join AARP, the mega-senior's organization? Surely they have some sort of group medical insurance a member can piggyback on. It was only after I had purchased a multi-year membership that I decided to research this powerful special interest group and see what their official position was on issues important to me. First and foremost was the issue of gun ownership. What I discovered surprised the heck out of me."
