"'Poor management has killed morale,' the document admits, recommending that the concern that 'management takes care of management' requires the bureau 'Punish managers commensurate with their level of responsibility … higher position + intentional malfeasance = greater discipline and accountability.'"

"After my unfortunate role as the teenage trigger man in a negligent discharge that almost claimed the life of my friend, I was forced to deal with what happened alone. Not because my parents didn’t care, but simply because I internalized what happened. In 1976, there was no Internet. Cable TV was in its infancy. I had never heard of Jeff Cooper. I was in a new city with no friends. There was only me and I blamed the gun, as well as myself . . ."

"After all, if there hadn’t been a gun I wouldn’t have shot my friend. And I wouldn’t have felt so guilty and ashamed. Ipso facto." ...

"Although his eyes were shielded from the glaring Arizona sun by a pair of Revision shades, the black lenses couldn’t hide the look of sheer determination on Andrew Bottrell’s face as he gently pressed the trigger of his Predator Tactical 1911 Shrike. An instant later, his focus was rewarded when a neat little hole appeared in the center-mass region of the silhouette target. Bottrell was pleased, but not surprised. Missing at 15 yards is simply not an option, he reminded himself, as he lifted his sidearm from his prosthetic leg, rotated upwards 180 degrees to help support the pistol he held in his one remaining hand." ...

Shafer talked about a new book he read titled, 'Get Out Alive' which features a chapter called 'Surviving an Active Shooter'.

"There’s little doubt that standard AR-15 furniture sucks. Thankfully, the AR-15 platform design is modular and allows the user to VERY quickly change out that standard furniture. That easy interchangeability has led to an explosion of aftermarket parts to dress up your rifle, and one of the most popular manufacturers of aftermarket AR-15 parts is TAPCO. But how good are they really? . . ." ...

"The concealed carry debate is oddly contentious. Some devoted readers will dismiss the Colt Mustang because it is a .380. No other reason. They won't look at a pocket pistol chambered in anything other than 9mm, or .45 ACP."

"I know where I stand. The .380 can be effective. It is certainly effective enough for a back up gun. I'm of the opinion that the .380 is ideal for a defensive weapon, especially when fired from the right gun."

"And this is the right gun. The Colt Mustang. The new Colt Mustang." ...

These new rifles add both mass and class with American Walnut stocks and deep blue finishes." ...

As after the shootings at Columbine, Virginia Tech, and a Tucson shopping mall, gun control advocates revived their calls to ban guns and gun rights advocates renewed their arguments that if more people carried guns, killers like [redacted] might have been stopped. National politicians, meanwhile, including President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney, expressed sympathy but steered clear of proposing any specific reforms ..." ...

"There are those who would have us believe that if events like the shootings at Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois University or Columbine High School were to occur at UNL, we would be better protected if students were allowed to conceal and carry guns on campus. Although, in theory, allowing conceal and carry could help, there are still several arguments as to why the ban of firearms should continue." ...

But neither presidential candidate has said what they'll do. I saw Senator Schumer–who I agree with on an awful lot of things, but in this case I think he’s just wrong–he says, 'Obama's a lot better on guns than Romney.'" ...
