Why Carry A Revolver?

From USA Carry:

Beginner friendly

Revolvers are great for first-time gun owners because they are simple to operate. For Double Action Only (DAO) revolvers, there is nothing to mess up once it’s loaded. Simply point to the target and fire. For SA/DA revolvers, there is the simplicity of DAO action with the option of single action tight shooting.

Campus Carry Costs Were Exagerated

From Guns.com:

In an agency fiscal note from the UT system to lawmakers, the school estimated a cost of $39,327,319 over six years to implement the practice, including an outlay of nearly $10 million the first year. Most of this was associated with adding another 52 full time security employees and expanding surveillance camera networks.

Now, budget information from about 40 colleges and universities across the Lone Star State shows that combined cost to implement the new law that took effect last month was just $955,000, typically spent on signage, The Dallas Morning News reported.

TX Campus Carry Allowed

From Dallas Morning News:

An effort by three University of Texas at Austin professors to block the implementation of the state’s divisive campus carry law has failed, after a federal judge on Monday denied their request for a preliminary injunction.

Texas Attorney General’s response to the ruling:

“I am pleased, but not surprised, that the court denied the request to block Texas’ campus carry law.  There is no legal justification to deny licensed, law-abiding citizens on campus the same measure of personal protection they are entitled to elsewhere in Texas.  The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed for all Americans, including students, and I will always stand ready to protect that right.”

Texas Campus Carry Goes Into Effect

From Reason:

A Texas law that affirms the right of students and faculty to carry guns on public university campuses went into effect today. Much has been made of the significance of the date, given that the University of Texas tower shooting—one of the most infamous school massacres in history—occurred exactly 50 years ago.

Rape Survivor’s Story Saves Woman

From Hot Air:

Obama commended Corban for overcoming a horrific event in her life, adding that his executive actions don’t make it harder for her to purchase firearms, and proceeded to mansplain to her how owning guns could lead to the owner becoming a fatality—an awful thing to say to a survivor of sexual assault, but that’s for another time. Flash-forward to the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting in May, Kristi McMains needed to meet Corban, as her story helped her save her life from a would-be robber that attempted to stab her.

D.C. Concealed Law Ruled Unconstitutional

From The Washington Post:

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that a key provision of the District’s new gun law is probably unconstitutional, ordering D.C. police to stop requiring individuals to show “good reason” to obtain a permit to carry a firearm on the streets of the nation’s capital.

U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon found that the law violates the “core right of self-defense” granted in the Second Amendment, setting aside arguments from District officials that the regulation is needed to prevent crime and protect the public.

Current Trends Of First Time Gun Owners

From The Outdoor Wire:

Today, I was told, “typical” customers may be male or female, but they’re far more likely to be looking for a small concealed carry handgun than a modern sporting rifle or a traditional hunting gun. And that “typical” customer already has a pretty good idea about what they’re shopping for – and that first choice sometimes came a a big shock to the staff members behind the counter.

As a general trend, first-time buyers seem to have baseline knowledge when it comes to potentially suitable products, but are generally lacking any sort of hands-on quality time with firearms. And they were universally looking for sources of quality instruction- a requirement for anyone seeking a North Carolina concealed carry permit.

300,000 Concealed Carry Holders In Wisconsin

From Townhall:

Wisconsin reached a major milestone this week: 300,000 of its residents are licensed to carry a concealed firearm. That’s eight percent of the state’s population. Of course, you have some liberals who feel that this trend is “alarming,” and that it leads to an increase in violent crime–despite the fact that such crime is at its lowest rates in nearly five decades.

Adm. McRaven Doesn’t Want Students Carrying Guns

From The Daily Texan:

“I’m a big second amendment guy, you know; I’m a strong supporter,” McRaven said. “But my position today — I’m an educator. As I look across the students and the faculty and the administrators and the staff and their concerns that they have voiced to me about this creating an unsafe environment with more guns on campus, it’s hard for me to support campus carry when I see their concerns.”

Virginia To Revoke Concealed Carry Reciprocity With Most States

From The Washington Post:

Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced Tuesday that the commonwealth will no longer recognize out-of-state concealed handgun permits, part of a national push to circumvent legislatures opposed to tightening gun laws.

Herring (D) said 25 states have lax laws compared with Virginia, where a history of stalking, drug dealing or inpatient mental health treatment can disqualify someone from carrying a concealed handgun. The move is in step with actions governors and attorneys general are taking to address gun violence without going through Republican-controlled legislatures.

Forty-six-year-old Tatiana Duva-Rodriguez heard screams in a Home Depot parking lot and saw a man jump into a car with stolen goods. Duva-Rodriguez pulled out her pistol and fired off two rounds into the escape car’s tires, flattening one of them.

From The Washington Post:

Tatiana Duva-Rodriguez thought she was doing the right thing when she pulled out her pistol and fired at a pair of shoplifters as they fled from a Home Depot near Detroit.

She wasn’t, at least in the eyes of the law.
