Last week the Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bipartisan bill to expand sanctions on illegal “straw purchases” of guns, the first major gun-related bill adopted by the panel since 1994.
But votes on three more controversial proposals -- Sen. Dianne Feinstein's semi-automatic firearms ban, high-capacity ammunition magazine restrictions and expanded universal background checks -- will likely be delayed until later this week. [ Read Full Post ]
Shotshell patterning pump gunners who’ve suffered through shoulder-thumping sessions at the local range know reduced recoil is but a sweet wishful dream—until now.

Macro-media consolidation has distressed civil libertarians for decades. Second Amendment advocates now share this concern with the recent announcement by Comcast Corp. that it will no longer accept gun-related commercials on its extensive media networks, which include holdings in television, cable, Internet, radio, and voice services in two-thirds of the nation's markets.

To gear up for 3-Gun, shooters need to open their wallets wide, particularly for shotguns.

According to Adam Winkler, a UCLA professor of constitutional law and author of "Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America," the next significant gun rights cases that will come before the Supreme Court will likely address the right to carry firearms in public, an issue that the high court has yet to rule on.

Two firearms manufacturers have announced they will no longer sell their products to law enforcement agencies in New York after state lawmakers endorsed Andrew M. Cuomo’s proposed assault-weapons ban in early February.
Washington-state-based firearms manufacturer Olympic Arms, a manufacturer of AR-15s and other semi-automatic rifles, announced on Feb. 13 that it will no longer sell its products to New York state law enforcement agencies, three days after Templar Custom Arms made a similar pledge.

In case you missed it, the Department of Justice has concluded that the proposed semi-automatic firearms ban, if adopted, is “unlikely to have an effect on gun violence."
But, as Daniel Greenfield writes on Frontpagemag.com on Feb. 19, gun-grabbing "Liberals like to think of themselves as reality-based, the only problem is that they’re always playing a game of Choose Your Own Reality. And Choose Your Own Facts." [ Read Full Post ]
