Legislators: Bills would limit gun access for sex offenders, mentally ill
WTVR-TV
Several legislators including, Sen. Donald McEachin, introduced bills they hope will prevent gun violence by keeping firearms out of the hands of dangerous individuals. The proposals would mean background checks would be required in order to limit access to guns by individuals involuntarily committed for mental health treatment and individuals convicted of stalking or violence sexual crimes.

Bill to increase penalties for celebratory gunfire advances
Fredricksburg Free Lance-Star
Think twice before you decide to celebrate New Year's or the Fourth of July by shooting off your gun. If that bullet kills another person, it could be the equivalent of manslaughter. The Senate Courts Committee advanced a bill from Sen. Henry Marsh, D-Richmond, to specify penalties for celebratory gunfire.

Defending Second Amendment based livelihood: Gun dealers need to 'wake up'
Townhall.com
"Retailers Need to Wake Up," Director of Government Relations and State Affairs at National Shooting Sports Foundation Jake McGuigan said during a grassroots seminar at the 2014 SHOT Show. "It's not political, it's our livelihood and our constitutional right." Anti-gun politicians throughout the country have done everything possible over the past two years, and over the past four decades, to turn law abiding citizens into criminals.

Metcalf triples down
Shall Not Be Questioned
Crying victimization in the media yet again, this time to Politico. Jim Zumbo accepted his career's public hanging with more grace and class, and at least tried to make things right. And what Zumbo said was a lot worse. He's continuing to feed the narrative of a gun rights movement dominated by extremists and foaming mad dogs to our enemies who are the media.

Back to basics hunting: Late-season birds and dogs
Outdoor Life
With the final weeks of upland-bird and waterfowl seasons upon us, wild birds are as skittish as ever. They've been pursued, cornered, decoyed and called to by hunters from the Canadian prairies to the Gulf Coast. They've heard it all, seen it all — good callers, bad callers, good dog work to bad dog work. And they've survived it all. To bag birds during these final days, you have to be perfect. Your dog has to be perfect. If he's not, those birds will take advantage of his (and your) missteps — and you'll watch as they flush wild and out of range or never circle down into range over your spread.

NRA offers shooters' insurance
Chicago Tribune
Shooting someone in self defense can be costly. But if you do end up being charged with a felony, the National Rifle Association offers its members an insurance policy that could pay thousands of dollars in legal costs. The concealed carry liability insurance, which ranges from $165 a year for a $100,000 policy to $600 a year for $1 million in coverage, reimburses attorney fees and other legal costs resulting from criminal or civil case defense. Proceeds from the premiums go to the NRA.

Hunting in poor conditions
By John McAdams
Most hunters are familiar with the ideal conditions for hunting big game with respect to the rut, wind speed and direction, the phase of the moon and ambient temperatures. However, like many other hunters out there, I have to hunt when I have time off from work, and that does not always mean I'll be deer hunting under ideal circumstances. This does not mean you can't be successful. However, it may mean you have to change your hunting methods to fit prevailing conditions.
