Early one Saturday morning in April 2016, 41-year-old Scott Franklin got out of his car at a red light and approached another vehicle, one of two filled with young men out partying. Franklin, who was on his way home from working a shift at a Mexican restaurant, was angry: The dispute, police later said, was over whether one car had cut off the other. As Franklin neared one of the other vehicles, 22-year-old Malcolm DiPina, who was riding in the backseat, drew a .40-caliber Glock pistol, rolled down his window, and fired three to five times. Franklin collapsed in the street, and died soon after. The car sped away.

The measure is the most significant gun-control proposal that the General Assembly has taken up this year. But a conference committee of three senators and three delegates failed to agree after a brief meeting on Monday, leaving the bill's fate up in the air with only hours to go until this year's session ends.

While the commonwealth of Virginia has a proud history of freedom and liberty, Gov. Terry McAuliffe isn’t helping matters any. On Wednesday, the Virginia Senate failed to override a McAuliffe veto of a series of important self-defense measures that would have helped better equip women who are victims of domestic violence. Yes, you read that right: He vetoed bills that would have made domestic violence victims safer—and many in the Senate apparently were perfectly happy with that.

However, I just encountered a photo of a Reising with a folding stock. Was this an experimental version or was it actually issued as well?

Review: Walther Creed 9 mm Pistol

So I’ve been tasked with reviewing the new Walther Creed pistol. I know: Poor me, I have to shoot guns for a living. But there’s a problem. How do I present it in an exciting, attention-grabbing way? Do I go with a “Rocky”-franchise reference? One of our Facebook followers attached a picture of Carl Weathers as soon as we posted the Walther Creed. Of course, Shooting Illustrated is known for its tortured musical references, so asking if the firearm public will accept the Creed “with arms wide open” is almost too cheesy to resist. We’re talkin’ Lambeau Field headwear cheesy.
