Is Virginia Beach targeting legal gun owners?
VSSA
That's the question that News Channel 3 WTKR will ask in a special investigative report on Tuesday, Sept. 23. It is prompted by a proposal from the Virginia Beach City Council that would punish people who have had their firearms stolen, essentially making them a victim twice, if the gun owners don't report lost or stolen firearms as quickly as City Council thinks they should. The penalty would be jail time. Bob's Gun Shop owner Robert Marcus told WTKR he believes the proposal indicates that Council has done all they plan to do to punish criminals so now they are going after legal gun owners.

5 best home defense shotguns under $800
Guns.com
When a new shooter asks a gun shop owner or clerk what gun they should get to defend their home and family, the majority reply, "a 12-gauge shotgun" for good reason. Few weapons are as versatile and hard-hitting as a shotgun with defensive ammunition. Since the shooter is new, most clerks will recommend the scattergun be pump-action, because it's simpler and more reliable than a semiautomatic one, at least in theory. In fact, many auto-loading shotguns these days are just as reliable as a pump-shotgun with normal loads. So if reliability is no longer an issue, where should a homeowner looking for the perfect gun to defend his castle start?
