"The National Shooting Sports Foundation (the trade association for the firearms industry whose mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports) recently announced that they’re lining up with The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the Million Murdering Mothers Mom March, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the Violence Policy Center, the Legal Community Against Violence, Americans for Gun Safety and Mayors Against All Illegal Guns in support of reasonable, common-sense, gun control measures.

"A new alliance of industry and armed citizens has been announced with the goal of providing ordinary gun owners the opportunity to 'practice, train and become familiar with the use of concealed carry handguns and other personal defense firearms.'"

"The Armed Citizen Alliance (ACA) should get immediate attention from Pacific Northwest shooters whose primary purpose for owning a gun is personal protection, and there are hundreds of thousands of them. In Washington, some 360,000 citizens have active concealed pistol licenses. Neighboring Oregon, as this column recently noted, has more than 152,000 licensed citizens." ...

"As I wrote then, it is a convoluted piece of quasi-academic work that is intended to make gun owners question the founders’ position on private gun ownership and, if possible, open 21st-century American minds to the idea of more gun control." ...

"This brings me to what has been gnawing at me so badly for the past week. Lepore has made a mistake that’s all too common with anti-gunners and even with some staunch defenders of the Second Amendment."

"First, let’s define sport hunters. These are hunters that take game for no conceivable reason except that it makes them feel good. But isn’t that the reason we do most everything we choose to do in our recreational time? When we go the range it makes us feel good on many levels from the guttural sensations of controlling recoil amidst the flash and muzzle blast to being a little better than the guy next to you, to being a bit better prepared to defend ourselves against threats . . ." ...

"Fears linked to November's election, street crime, civil unrest, doomsday prophecies and even a zombie apocalypse have metro Detroiters buying firearms at a brisk pace. But the boom times in gun sales are not as lucrative for local gun shops as they could be."

"That's because gun retailers can't get more weapons from manufacturers, which are flooded with orders for the most popular pistols, rifles and shotguns, according to Crains Detroit Business."

"Royal Oak-based Target Sports normally sells about 10 guns a day, but that has increased to 30 a day this year, owner Ray Jihad said."

"The tactical breathing method I use is similar to the one written by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman in On Combat."

"When I get down to fire a rifle from a rested position, the first thing I do is adjust my position so that my natural point of aim is on the target and then I calm myself down for the shot."

"To calm down and lower my heart rate I take a number of slow full breaths. During each breath I watch the rise and the fall of the reticle on the target. When I am ready to take the shot, I interrupt my breath when the reticle is on target, take a final moment to clean up the sight picture while I take the slack out of the trigger and then increase the pressure on the trigger until it fires." ...

"A new study has found that playing video games can dramatically improve your accuracy with real weapons. Suddenly, teenagers all across America have a solid rebuttal to their question, 'Why do you play so many video games?'"

"Test subjects played video games that used a pistol-shaped controller and aimed it at the screen to shoot virtual targets. Participants were then asked to fire a realistic gun at human-shaped targets. Not only were the test subjects who had just played video games much more accurate than the test subjects who hadn't, but they also aimed for the head much more frequently. The video game players also scored nearly twice as many head shots as the other participants." ...

"A group that supports allowing gun owners to carry concealed guns without permits anywhere they choose is planning a gun-carrying rally outside the state Capitol on May 19."

"The effort comes as Senate lawmakers are considering a bill that would streamline concealed licensing and allow permit holders with extra training to carry hidden handguns in ... places they are now banned." ...
