Second Amendment definition in Texas school work book triggers uproar
Fox News
Parents at a high school near Dallas say the authors of a book on U.S. history misfired when they defined the Second Amendment — and now one of the book's co-authors says the book is being revised. The work book used at Guyer High School in the city of Denton, "The United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination," includes the "summary" definition of the Second Amendment to include the right to "keep and bear arms in a state militia."

School's firearms class teaches science of guns
The Herald Tribune
In a class that is hard to come by at most traditional public schools, the Sarasota Military Academy in Florida, debuted its new firearm safety course this school year. Led by a Sarasota County sheriff's deputy, the class is intended to teach teenagers the science behind guns — how to handle them safely, how they work and the history behind them.

Federal gun laws didn't block Navy Yard shooter
San Francisco Gate
The gunman in the mass shootings at the Washington Navy Yard, Aaron Alexis, had a history of violent outbursts, was at least twice accused of firing guns in anger and was in the early stages of treatment for serious mental problems, according to court records and U.S. law enforcement officials. But Alexis apparently managed to exploit seams in the nation's patchwork of complicated gun laws designed to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous people. He was able to buy a shotgun in Virginia with out-of-state identification, even though that would have prevented him from buying a handgun.

Starbucks seeks to keep guns out of its coffee shops
The New York Times
Tired of being thrust onto the front lines of the nation's debate over guns, Starbucks is asking customers to leave firearms behind when they are in its stores and its outdoor seating areas. The policy change came after a shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard that left 13 people, including the gunman, dead. But Starbucks said its decision was not in response to that or to the shooting spree that killed 26 children and adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., just days before Christmas last year.

Men legally carrying firearms arrested at Texas capitol
Texas GOP Vote
At least 3 men (one a war vet in a wheelchair) were arrested, at the Texas Capitol in Austin after State Troopers, not aware of the law, arrested them and then had to think of other charges to put on the men after finding out that it was not illegal for them to open carry the guns because pre 1899 black powder pistols are expressly exempted from the firearms law.

Placing your feet and picking your ammo for dove hunting
Outdoor Hub
Footwork is an important key to accurate shooting. Often a hunter will be sitting on a dove stool and has to move his body to compensate for the angle that the dove is coming at him. This means he will run out of swing, pull his head up off the gun, and the gun will stop. Instead, you want to have as much room as possible to swing your gun left or right, depending on the flight of the dove, in order to lead the bird properly. If you are sitting on a stool, you need to read the direction the dove is traveling as it flies. As long as you stay still and don't move, most of the time the dove will continue flying on the same path in the same direction. If you wait until the bird is in range before you move, you shouldn't affect his flight path.
