Torture testing the new Ruger AR-556
Down Range TV
The Age Of The Economy AR rifle is upon us. After being demonized by the gun control crowd as an "assault weapon" and surviving various bans and restrictions, the AR-15 and all its variants are America's Rifle. It is the most popular rifle sold in America, the one most used by Americans for sport, competition and defense, and the one manufactured by more companies than any other design. The popularity of the AR has continued to grow as more people have taken up shooting, and military veterans purchase the rifle they learned to trust in combat.

What to do after a defensive shooting
NRA Family Insights
You have just been attacked by an armed criminal and forced to deploy your defensive handgun. Too often, people who prepare for such a possibility fail to consider what they should do and what they should expect once the gunfire has ceased. Dealing with the aftermath of such an unfortunate situation should be a critical part of your personal defense plan. To fail to consider it can place you in a good deal of legal and physical danger. Once the shooting is over, you should put your gun away and call 911 immediately.

Following loss of fingerprints, DC asks gun owners to re-register
Guns.com
The Washington Metropolitan Police Department, after losing part of its electronic fingerprint database, is sending gun owners notice that they need to come by and give them again. Although gun owners in the District already by law have to re-register both themselves and their firearms every three years, this latest requirement from the city comes after the existing fingerprint data collected July 2012 to March 2013 has vanished. Each affected owner has to be reprinted as well as pay a $13 per gun registration fee, which, for some owners, can add up to hundreds of dollars.

Concealed guns on campus
Mace & Crown
School shootings are becoming a national norm. In Virginia, we remember the Virginia Tech massacre of April 2007, and more recently the shooting on Old Dominion University's campus. ODU has toughened up on security and gun control rules within its facilities in the past few years. Regulations prohibit the possession of any concealed weapons on campus, including guns. Students for Concealed Carry is an example of some of the strong opposition against banning guns from campus. This group believes that not allowing students to have guns is disarming law abiding citizens from a Constitutional right. Their ultimate goal is to allow students who legally own guns to be able to carry them on campus.

Is Virginia Beach targeting legal gun owners?
VSSA
A recent proposal from the Virginia Beach City Council 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.

Gun rights group promises lawsuit over gun ban at State Fair
Guns.com
The North Carolina State Fair is set to kick off Oct. 16, but the state's agriculture commissioner and a local gun rights group are at odds over the current "no guns" policy at the fairgrounds. While guns have long been prohibited during the fair, except for those carried by law enforcement, some argue this should change due to the expansive gun rights package that was passed by the state legislature last summer. Besides signs at the entrances to the fairgrounds, attendees will have to pass through metal detectors and submit to a search.
