Leftist group waving the white flag on banning assault weapons
VSSA
The Wall Street Journal Washington Wire reports that the Center for American Progress is "waving a white flag" on banning assault weapons in a study out titled "Assault Weapons Revisited."

"The answer is not that assault weapons aren't dangerous and people having access to them is a good thing," Mr. Gerney said in an interview this week. "There are other things that we can do to lessen the risks of assault weapons short of banning them. ... When you're making policy, it's always a mix of what's going to have a biggest positive impact and what is practical and politically possible."

VSSA's new AR-15s for Junior Highpower Rifle program
VSSA
VSSA's Highpower Rifle Chairman Mike Jamison would like to thank the many people who contributed in various ways to provide VSSA's Junior Rifle team with new AR-15s for competition. Using funds from the sale of the association's antique M1s, Jamison purchased two AR-15s from Rock River Arms while the team was at Camp Perry shooting in the National Matches. Because the firearms were for our Junior team, Rock River gave VSSA a very good price.

Stafford County to consider change to noise and shooting ordinance
VSSA
There was an item on a recent agenda of the Stafford County Board of Supervisors that would authorize the county administrator to advertise a public hearing for the purpose of amending the county's shooting ordinance. While the information provided appears to be mostly changes to bring county ordinances in line with state law, VSSA has major concerns with any noise changes that would make it harder for gun owners to shoot or hunt on private property.

VSSA
The Virginia Center for Public Safety & Virginians for Responsible Gun Laws is holding a "forum in Hampton on Sept. 20 to lay out their plan to continue pushing their gun ban agenda. They are billing it as a discussion of "targeted efforts to keep firearms out of the hands of violent convicted felons and domestic abusers, stalkers and the dangerously mentally ill." But we know that nothing they are proposing will stop violent felons from getting firearms.

After 30 years of lies, New York Times admits 'assault weapons are a myth'
Bearing Arms
In a stunning op-ed released Sept. 12, The New York Times finally admitted that "assault weapons" are a made-up political term fabricated by anti-gun Democrats. Op-ed writer Lois Beckett also admitted that once the term was manufactured and used to outlaw a class of weapons that dishonest anti-gun Democrats had used to con an entire nation, nothing happened.

Sunday hunting is going strong in Virginia
The Virginian-Pilot
With the third weekend of dove season rapidly approaching, it appears that everyone is behaving themselves in Virginia — where hunters are allowed for the first time to hunt Sundays on private land with owner permission. We all know this law was about deer, but the dove season easily could be seen as a testing of the waters. Reports from several groups are that there so far have been no issues.

Some Analysis of the Brady suit against Lucky Gunner
Shall Not Be Questioned
Dave Hardy, who unlike me is a lawyer, looks at the Brady Center suit against Lucky Gunner and declares it weak tea. As a reader mentioned yesterday, LG is owned by former law students of Glenn Reynolds. If I were them, I'd be looking into what sanctions are available in Colorado against plaintiffs who file frivolous lawsuits with an aim to punch back twice as hard.

9 things new shooters (and concealed carry permit holders) need to know about training
The Shooter's Log
"In my various roles as a firearms trainer, I have spent countless hours fixing problems for students whose issues were created during their previous training," writes Mike Seeklander, owner of Shooting-Performance LLC and co-host of "The Best Defense," the Outdoor Channel's leading self-defense and firearms instruction show. "Unfortunately, most of those mistakes are self-ingrained by shooters doing repetitions with improper technique. Along the way, I've come to realize there are several simple, yet often unfamiliar, concepts about firearms training that shooters don't know or understand."

What a difference a trigger makes
AmmoLand
Gun shop wisdom says a good trigger makes all the difference. It should be obvious that replacing the trigger doesn't have any physical impact on a rifle's accuracy. It's not like it synchronizes barrel harmonics to the tune of "You're So Vain" or anything. A trigger doesn't touch the barrel or impact flight path, yet everyone swears it makes a rifle more accurate. It doesn't actually make the rifle more accurate. It makes it easier for you, the shooter, to get the best accuracy possible from the rifle.

Gunsite 250 Pistol: Getting back into the fight
Bearing Arms
VideoBrief The first and most common kind of malfunction clearance is the Tap, Roll, Rack drill. It's as simple as tapping the magazine to ensure that it is seated properly in the pistol, rolling the pistol toward towards the ejection port side so that gravity can be our friend and then racking the slide to clear the malfunction. Quite frankly, we don't care about the specifics of the malfunction, because we're in a gunfight and want to get the weapon back into action as quickly as possible.

The best .380 pistols right now
Handguns.com
Handguns chambered in .380 ACP often come into question for their lack of power compared to that of larger cartridges used in full-size pistols. However, we're seeing the caliber debates shift more toward 9mm vs. .380 ACP than that of 9mm vs. .45 ACP. Trends in modern ammo technology are allowing smaller cartridges to deliver greater energy and expansion to their targets. More effective ammunition is also combining with smaller, lighter and more concealable handguns to make guns chambered in .380 ACP a very appealing option for self-defense.
