Senator: Make it legal to bring concealed guns across state lines
Politix
Concealed gun permit holders would be able to travel lawfully to other states with their firearms, under legislation offered by Sen. John Cornyn. The Texas Republican's bill would require states that have concealed-carry laws to allow permit holders from other states to carry weapons, as long as they abide by restrictions in jurisdictions they are visiting. Currently, all states allow some form of concealed carry although some, such as New York and Connecticut, are much more stringent than states such as Texas.

Online class to remain an option to get Virginia gun permit
The Virginian-Pilot
A while back, Andrew Goddard took an online firearms training course. "I learned nothing from it," Goddard told a House of Delegates subcommittee. "It was very simplistic." Nevertheless, that was all it took for Goddard to apply for and receive a state permit allowing him to carry a concealed handgun. He has never owned nor handled a handgun.

Shannon Watts v. Dana Loesch
Shal Not Be Questioned
There's just something about attractive women who favor gun rights that gets our opponents in a hand-wringing tizzy. From the moment it was announced that Dana Loesch was going to be on The View, the madness began. Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership libel Dana Loesch, by suggesting she's a spokeswoman for Magpul, when she is not. They had better be careful. I know they are used to repeatedly spewing untruths without getting called on it, but eventually they're going to libel someone who isn't afraid to file suit and will revel in the media circling the wagons to defend one of their own.
