Traveling With Guns

From The Truth About Guns:

My first advice to traveling gun owners is to always be nice. A good attitude goes a surprisingly long way in getting you through problem situations. Do your homework, know the rules for checked baggage (no loaded firearms, ammo in a separate container) , and destination gun laws concerning possession of firearms (i.e., concealed carry no-go zones, magazine limits, etc.) pack well and leave early, check-in early and then…smile. I may know TSA’s rules and regs more than anyone at the airport, but I don’t flaunt it or shove it in their faces.

California Law Requires Impossible Technology Effectively Banning Guns

From Reason:

A California statute requires that all new models of semi-automatic handguns stamp the handgun’s serial number in two locations on each round of ammunition. It is possible for a handgun’s firing pin to stamp the serial number onto the cartridge’s primer, which is a disk in the center of the back side of the ammunition. It not possible to stamp a serial number in two locations, as an erudite amicus brief from the Cato Institute explains. Nevertheless, California Attorney General Kamala Harris in May 2013 declared that all conditions for implementation by the statute had been met. Accordingly, all pistol models created since May 2013 are prohibited from commercial sale in California.
