New Striker Pistol From Texas Company

From Guns.com:

Billed as “The Next Generation of Freedom,” a new firearms company plans to release a handgun that they believe will break out of the rut of vanilla striker-fired polymer-framed 9mm pistols

Based in Dallas, Texas, gunmaker Rost Martin has announced as its flagship product the new RM1C pistol. A compact-sized double-stack 9mm, it sports a 4-inch hammer-forged barrel, 7.1-inch overall length, and a 21.1-ounce unloaded weight with a 15+1 round magazine. This puts it a hair smaller than the Glock 19 Gen 5

California LEOs Refuse To Enforce New Laws

From Bearing Arms:

The first cracks in the wall that Gavin Newsom and his fellow Democrats have erected around the right to carry appeared on Wednesday afternoon, when Sutter County Sheriff Brandon Barnes and Sutter County District Attorney Jennifer R. Dupré released a joint statement that encouraged “citizens to obey the law” while vowing to use their discretionary power to not criminalize “constitutionally protected behavior”.

Court Rules California Can Continue Revealing Gun Owner Information To “Researchers”

From Ammoland:

“California’s Department of Justice had been permitted to share ‘identifying information of more than 4 million gun owners’ collected by the state during the background check process for firearms purchases with ‘qualified research institutions,’ ostensibly to aid in the study of gun-related accidents, suicides and violence.”

The “personal information” includes “names, addresses, phone numbers, and any criminal records, among other things.” What “other things”?

Man With No Hands Qualifies For Carry Permit

From Fox 4:

An Austin man is now licensed to carry a gun despite not having arms. His instructor says it took a few hours to teach the student, and he passed with flying colors.

“It brought me to tears, I wanted to cry because I was happy that I was able to help this young man,” said Central Texas Gun Works owner Michael Cargill. “He wanted to be able to protect himself.”

North Carolina Proposes Dangerous Regulations For Concealed Carry Classes

From Bearing Arms:

The North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission is the body that oversees (among other things) the roughly 2,600 firearm instructors throughout the state, and several months ago the commission got an earful from many of them over proposed rules that would have introduced sweeping changes and additional burdens for anyone teaching a concealed carry course. As drafted, the rules would have required every instructor to give the state 30 days’ notice before hosting a concealed carry course as well as keeping a list of all attendees for up to two years afterward; information that would have to be handed over to the state during the course of any investigation into the instructor.

Hi-Point Yeet Cannon Finally Released

From Guns.com:

Ohio-based Hi-Point Firearms finally ended the long wait for its illusive “Yeet Cannon” pistol when it unveiled the brand-new 9mm YC9 today. This is one of those guns that has been living rent-free in my head for several years now. 

Arrival of the YC9 was first expected back in 2019, but Hi-Point continued to work on the gun for years under a veil of secrecy. Now, the newly employee-owned and operated company – as of last year – has YC9s rolling out to distributors’ shelves as I write this review. Thankfully, I didn’t have to wait until the release.

Texas Requires Armed Security At ALL Public Schools By 2024

From Ammoland:

 In the American colonial days, several colonies required colonists to be armed for public safety. Texas, in a statute designed to reduce the risk of mass murder at public schools, will require armed security at public schools starting next year. Texas bill HB3 passed in 2023. It requires an armed security officer at all Texas public schools K-12 starting in 2024.

Texas Car Owners Shoot Thieves

From Bearing Arms:

This isn’t the first defensive gun use we’ve covered recently involving nearly identical situations. In fact, it’s not even the first story of this kind from San Antonio. A similar incident took place back in April when the owner of a stolen truck used his Apple AirTag to track down its location, only to be fired upon by the suspected car thief.

Another similar situation played out in Harris County, Texas just hours before the defensive gun use in San Antonio, where authorities say another suspected car thief was shot and killed by the rightful owner early Thursday morning.

Reviewing The Original Concealed Carry Debate Decades Later

From Bearing Arms:

I’ll give credit to the current editors of the State Journal for highlighting the 20-year-old editorial, because it would have been much easier to keep this buried in the online archives, and probably better for today’s anti-gun activists as well. Two decades after running, the editorial doesn’t hold up well. At all.
