For example, Matyas said he doesn't know how many guns Dalton had registered to him at his Cooper Township home and investigators have not said when Dalton purchased the alleged murder weapon – a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun – or whether the gun was properly registered and owned legally.

I’ve a word of advice for new gun owners. Ignore a lot of the advice you’re given. You see, gun owners are like everyone else. We want a contradiction. We not only want a contradiction; we want the perfect contradiction.

We are the problem. We want all these things. We want one gun for many uses, and I’m as guilty as the next person.

If we were more honest, we’d admit that we are selling a new gun buyer their first gun.. rather than their only gun.

We must drive sales people crazy as we sort out our wants across their counter.

Texas' new law allowing college students to carry guns on public campuses doesn't take effect until August, but it's already triggered a showdown.

University of Texas-Austin President Gregory Fenves declared this week that he'll comply with the law, but claimed a loophole allows him to ban firearms in dormitories.

That interpretation is not likely to sit well with state Attorney General Ken Paxton, who in December said that a ban on guns in dorms would be flouting the law.

Should we be marketing guns to children?

For some this concept may seem pretty self-evident. If you want to preserve your Second Amendment right you need to market the Second Amendment to future generations.

Others can’t quite grasp the concept of positive firearms marketing to children.
