Demand for gun training grows among women
WTVF-TV
Interest in gun training classes has never been higher in some parts of Middle Tennessee. In fact, it's so high for one Bedford County training group that it held its first gun safety class for women only. Defensive Consulting Group offered the class on Mother's Day weekend because its owners said sometimes women tell them they're not as comfortable taking the class around men, and they wanted to make sure their students learn gun safety skills in as comfortable environment as possible.

Tactical shooting not just for law enforcement, sport gaining popularity
The Republic
The buzzer sounded and Gary Johnson grabbed an empty handgun from the table, picked up a full magazine, loaded it into the pistol, pulled back the slide, and began shooting. In a matter of seconds, close to a dozen paper targets representing assailants had two shots in them; two other targets, representing bystanders, were untouched.

A message from Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli on the RKBA
Virginia Shooting Sports Association via Ammo Land
Most Virginians understand that our rights come from our Creator — not the government. Without the ability to defend ourselves, individuals have no rights. Luckily, our Founders understood that natural rights predate government. That's why they passed the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution to protect our right to defend ourselves and loved ones.

Waking the dragon — How Feinstein fiddled while America burned
The Iowa State Daily
Along with bombs and bombers, guns seem to be all the media wants to talk about these days. Death is sexy to our miscreant media, especially when people are killed on purpose. And when that happens, it's all the newspapers and news stations will print and broadcast, in turn making these events appear worse than they are in reality.

Are background checks a wedge issue for 2014?
The Washington Post
The Senate's rejection of a popular expansion of background checks for firearms last month marked an abrupt end to the campaign for gun restrictions after the Newtown shootings.

California law takes effect on microstamping guns
The Sacramento Bee
A California law that requires all semi-automatic handguns to be equipped with technology that stamps its identifying information on bullet casings is now in effect after years of delays. Though signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007, the law couldn't take effect as it was supposed to in 2010 because of patents on the technology, including at least one that had been bought up by a gun rights group to delay the law's implementation.

Best pistol ever: What makes the 1911 so good?
Shooting Times
For more than 10 decades the Colt Government Model 1911 has been without challenge the most recognized, most imitated, most influential and most used semiautomatic handgun in the world. Some call it the best pistol ever. It is to autoloaders what the Colt Single Action Army is to revolvers. If anything, the Model 1911 pistol — in all its forms, chamberings and variations — is more popular today worldwide than it has been at any time since John Browning applied for the basic patents underlying its design. No other firearm on earth can match its record for longevity, versatility and performance.
