2 arrested following open carry protest
KTBC-TV
Two gun advocates were arrested at the Capitol during a Veterans Day ceremony. The president of open carry Texas, C.J. Grisham, was taken into custody while he was speaking on the north side of the capitol. While that was happening on the south Capitol steps a ceremony was underway to recognize veterans. The open carry group wants state lawmakers to make it legal to display a hand gun the same way it is currently legal to carry a long rifle out on the open.

Davis not pushing gun control, but like Bloomberg has favored gun show checks
Austin American-Statesman
Austin political consultant Steven Rivas drew our attention to a claim on a donation Web page for Greg Abbott's gubernatorial campaign saying state Sen. Wendy Davis is "fighting to bring California values to Texas" including "Bloomberg-style gun control." Setting aside how much California agrees with New York's gun-control advocate mayor Michael Bloomberg, we thought Texans would want to know Davis' views, as her bid to become governor is the first statewide campaign for the Fort Worth Democrat.

California Court of Appeals confirms ruling striking down ammunition sales restrictions
Ammo Land
On Nov. 6, the California Court of Appeals for the 5th District affirmed the lower court's issuance of a permanent injunction in the NRA/CRPA backed legal challenge to Assembly Bill (AB) 962, Parker v. California. AB 962 would have banned mail order ammunition sales and required all purchases of so-called "handgun ammunition" to be registered. The court's 41 page published opinion confirms that AB 962 is unconstitutionally vague and cannot be enforced.

Respectful hunters avoid trespassing
Billings Gazette
Trespassing is an easy crime to pooh-pooh when you can hear a rare life list bird species over the hill or if the perfect mountain biking route cuts the corner of someone else's back 40. Even some hunters — the one outdoor group that's specifically schooled on trespassing laws during mandatory hunter education courses — can rationalize going through another person's fence for a quick shot at game that's eluded them everywhere else. But nothing about hunting is more basic than respecting the land that provides our game and getting permission before entering private property.

Getting the most from trail cameras during the rut
Ammo Land
A big advantage hunters have this time of year is the bucks do a fine job of letting you know where they are hanging out. Rubbing and scraping activity is continually intensifying, and just about every buck in the woods spends a lot of time and effort leaving his calling card everywhere he can. While his intention is to arrange a "business meeting" with a receptive doe, hunters can also look the buck up and "arrange a blind date with trouble."
