Headline: Man practicing open carry law robbed of gun

BATFE To Ban Common AR-15 Ammo

In a move clearly intended by the Obama Administration to suppress the acquisition, ownership and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unexpectedly announced today that it intends to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” The decision continues Obama’s use of his executive authority to...

Judge overturns federal interstate handgun sales ban

Another big legal win for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) in a federal district court in Texas.
