The lawyer for 22-year-old Trung Le (Lee) told jurors Tuesday that videos will show the mystery gunman as the aggressor. Earlier the lead prosecutor insisted the videos and other evidence will prove Lee was the aggressor, firing first at the man believed to have robbed his friends of some marijuana more than an hour earlier.

When San Bernardino, a city of one of the most gun controlled states in the country in California, fell victim to a homegrown terrorist act in December, the attention of the national government again turned to how to keep guns out of the hands of possibly dangerous killers. However, while the president and his staff have focused on one thing, citizens and some states have engaged in a different approach. What's more, that approach can only continue to benefit gun makers such as Smith & Wesson Holding CorporationSmith & Wesson (NASDAQ:SWHC).

Texas' new campus carry law doesn't take effect until August 1, but state universities are facing pressure from all sides about how to implement the law. The measure, passed by last year's Legislature, allows those with concealed carry permits to carry firearms on public college campuses. Private universities can opt out of the law, and many already have. But public universities can only establish certain "gun-free zones" on campus without making it impossible to "practically carry a gun at all." That's led to controversy over allowing guns in classrooms.

When it comes to concealed carry, it really comes down to style and weight because the size is starting to be very close between small calibers (.22, .380, etc.) and “real” calibers like 9mm and .40, for instance. You’ll easily find something you love — and something you love to carry if you nose around. Well, we tossed a sleeper in here too though!

Flying in the face of President Obama’s recent executive action on gun control, one Louisiana legislator thinks citizens of our state should be free to open or conceal carry…without a permit.

Rep. Barry Ivey of Baton Rouge thinks the state should eliminate the permit required for concealed carry, and he also wants an amendment to the state constitution enshrining “permitless” concealed carry as the people’s right. Ivey says such a constitutional safeguard is the the best way to secure strong Second Amendment rights for future generations.
