Gun Marshals in school: Training begins in Texas
KETK-TV
Richard Martinez's son was killed after a shooting on the University of California Santa Barbara campus this May. Out of that tragedy came the rallying cry, "Not one more!" Some folks think the answer is gun control. In Texas, we're gonna try arming teachers with concealed weapons. Texas State Rep. Jason Villalba wrote The Protection of Texas Children Act, which allows school districts to create a School Marshal in all K-12 schools.

Gun-rights group's lawsuit challenges interstate limits on purchases
The Dallas Morning News
A gun rights group and a North Texas dealer are challenging federal law that limits gun buyers to purchasing handguns only in the state where they live. The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Fort Worth. Arlington retailer Fredric Russell Mance Jr. and two Washington, D.C., residents are also part of the suit from the Washington state-based group. The suit questions why Federal law allows Americans to purchase rifles and shotguns across state lines but not handguns, arguing that the restriction “reduces competition, raises prices and limits consumers’ choice.”

America's largest shotgun maker shifts more jobs to Texas
Forbes
America’s largest shotgun manufacturer, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., decided not to expand in Connecticut. Sure, it was founded there 1919 and still has its corporate headquarters in North Haven. But in 2013 Connecticut rushed through legislation to ban some of Mossberg’s popular products. As a result, Mossberg CEO, Iver Mossberg, says, “Investing in Texas was an easy decision. It’s a state that is not only committed to economic growth but also honors and respects the Second Amendment and the firearm freedoms it guarantees for our customers.”

Surplus ammunition: Shooting a little bit of history — literally
AmmoLand
Remember when surplus 8mm Mauser ammo was more abundant than White House press conference fibs? Tom McHale does. Not so very long ago, you could buy as much as you could store for less than 5 cents a round. Now that same round is about 60 cents — if you can find it. Similar scenarios apply for other common military rounds like .308, .30-06, 7.62×39 and 7.62x54R. While harder to find, and a lot more expensive than it used to be, it can still be cheaper than newly manufactured ammo.

Lubbock resident Renegar wins state trap shooting competition
Lubbock-Avalanche Journal
All Jeff Renegar had left to do was wait. He had shot out 97 of the 100 targets at the 2014 Texas State Trap Shoot in San Antonio, but for five hours all he could do was watch the scoreboard. “I was relatively early in the day to finish,” Renegar said. “246 competitors, and there was lots of sweating every time people would come in.”

Proposed amendment would make Missouri gun rights among the strongest
The Kansas City Star
If a measure on the August ballot passes, it could make Missouri’s gun rights protections among the strictest in the country. But all the consequences of the amendment are up for debate. Supporters say the measure would simply add to Missourians’ gun rights. Critics warn that it could put more guns in the hands of criminals. The basic terms of the proposed constitutional amendment are clear, though.

The Lee-Enfield: The greatest bolt-action of the great war
American Rifleman
On MidwayUSA's Gun Stories you can see interviews and high speed — I mean, really high speed — videography of Mark Keefe's favorite military rifle of the early part of the 20th century. That rifle, of course, is the Lee-Enfield. In particular, the Short, Magazine Lee-Enfield, Mk III. If ever a rifle was ideal for the war it would fight, it was the SMLE and World War I. Based on designs by American inventor James Paris Lee, the SMLE gets the "M" in in its name from its 10-round-capacity detachable box magazine.

The lightweight rifle
Guns Magazine
Early in the 20th century Savage developed a light bolt-action hunting rifle called the Model 1920. Later a few minor revisions were made. The revised model was called the 1920-1926. Two cartridge choices were offered, .250-3000 and .300 Savage. Fewer than 12,000 were ever made. Savage dropped it from the catalog in 1931. A number of factors kept it from achieving popular acceptance, such as the American preference for lever actions. Those who wanted bolt-action rifles often wanted them in .30-06. The Depression ended what modest demand there was.

Open-carry push has Texas in its sights
The Wall Street Journal
Activists bringing rifles into Texas chain stores in recent weeks have put the state at the center of a national fight over "open-carry" laws, reinforcing many Americans' perception of the Lone Star State as a haven for gun rights. In reality, Texas has one of the nation's more restrictive laws on the carrying of handguns — a policy that firearms-rights groups and state legislators are fighting to change. Those efforts, however, have been unsuccessful: Legislation in recent years proposing to allow people to carry handguns visibly has stalled.

Top 5 all-around sporting cartridges
American Rifleman
Aficionados of sporting rifles detest the notion of one rifle that can do virtually everything. We love rifles, and the more, the better. But there are those who cannot afford or don’t want a gaggle of rifles to take care of. They value simplicity and versatility, and often they like to say, “Beware the man with one gun.
