This week on Guns & Gear, check out gun belt options from CrossBreed Holsters, and see why a good belt is considered the foundation for concealed carry.

We’ll also shoot the accurate and value-priced Ruger Precision Rifle, and talk to the folks from Smith & Wesson about the new M&P M2.0 with enhanced features, including new aggressive grip texturing.

An anti-campus carry activist is raising money online to pay for Kansas Board of Regents documents outlining communications a staff member had with a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association while the board developed its policy to implement a state law requiring that colleges and universities allow concealed guns on campus.

Megan Jones, a graduate student at the University of Kansas, has been an outspoken opponent of the state’s controversial concealed carry law that went into effect on college and university campuses on July 1.

At about the same time Trump sent the following tweet, I was at a dinner in Fairview, Ala., where Moore spoke to members of Bama Carry, Inc., a statewide organization which bills itself as Alabama’s “only no-compromise gun rights group.”

M’Lynn Miller, 48, is comfortable with a .22 caliber handgun. And, and as she said, is getting better with a 9 mm, too. She has attained the National Rifle Association’s distinguished expert level in its first category.

She can’t speak for her other female shooters — yet she probably can — but if not for a women’s-only group, Miller wouldn’t be doing what she’s doing.

“I don’t think so,” she said. “I’d have been kind of intimidated. Now, it wouldn’t matter, but in the beginning, I wouldn’t have done it. There’s just something about being all-women that makes you feel comfortable.”

“I was just saying I don’t feel safe,” Charles K. Smith, adjunct instructor of geography at San Antonio College, told the San Antonio Express-News last week.

“It definitely makes me feel uneasy that there are more firearms on campus than there really should be. (Dressing this way) was just a statement on how I felt.”

Campus Carry, allowing individuals with a license to carry a concealed handgun at Texas colleges, went into effect at four-year institutions last year and at community colleges on Aug. 1.

Have a gun license? Plan to bring your gun to my hometown? Don’t.

Mean New York authorities will make your life miserable.

Patricia Jordan and her daughter flew here from her home state of Georgia. She wanted her gun nearby for protection.

Jordan obeyed all the Transportation Security Administration’s rules: She put her gun in a locked TSA-approved case with its bullets separate. She informed the airline that she had a gun. The airline had no problem with that.

In New York City, she kept the gun locked in her hotel room. She never needed it, but her daughter told me, “I was glad she brought it just in case something did happen.”

Shayna Lopez-Rivas has a message that women (and men) in New Jersey need to hear about Phil Murphy, the Democratic nominee for governor, before they vote in November.

Phil Murphy, wants to criminalize gun owners and self defense in New Jersey, far beyond the current oppressive human rights violating level that state residents currently struggle to defend their lives under.

There are many things that make me extremely angry about the violence that plagues certain areas of our country’s urban jurisdictions. Specifically, I am referring to the violence that involves the use of firearms. It is perpetrated predominantly by an extraordinarily small, career criminal population that is exploited by the professional anti-gun establishment to try to strip essential freedoms from tens of millions of law-abiding, contributing members of society like you and me. Of course, the erosion and elimination of gun rights they seek will only protect the bad guys and make the good much more vulnerable.

Platitudes, emotionally laden rhetoric, pandering to a rabidly anti-gun minority; do these things sound plausible from the editorial board of a major newspaper?

Not in the best of times, of course, but these are not such times for Missouri citizens who own firearms. Gun control advocates continually scapegoat us. They want law-abiding gun owners to be held responsible for the actions of felons—those who use guns to harm innocents. The latest episode is a very sad one: A man with an extensive criminal history used an AR-15 to gun down a Missouri policeman, Officer Gary Michael.

An admitted alcoholic can legally purchase a firearm in Florida, but a recent change to a federal firearm transaction form makes it clear a person who has been prescribed medical marijuana might be giving up their second amendment rights.

Everyone who buys a gun fills out ATF form number 4473. It asks nine questions about your life. Questions like are you under indictment, been convicted of stalking, a fugitive from justice, or mentally defective.
 

VT: 'This Is About Safety': Preventing Gun Suicides In Vermont

Delaney studies suicide prevention and he said when he looks at this kind of data, he starts to think about prevention and "what should we be doing that we aren't doing?"

A big part of suicide prevention is keeping a person who is in a suicidal crisis safe during that time — like connecting them to mental health services and removing lethal means, like guns, from that person’s environment.

Delaney said the idea a person will just find another way to kill themselves is not true.
 

NY: Repeal of SAFE Act must be paired with increased safeguards elsewhere

Repealing the SAFE Act on its own will do nothing to address this mass violence, including incidents like the shooting that left Rep. Steve Scalise, the House’s third highest-ranking Republican, critically wounded by a gunman at a practice for a charity baseball game in June.

The U.S. must prioritize a set of sensible and permanent solutions to curb this violence, including requiring universal background checks for all firearm purchases, implementing longer waiting periods and banning sales of firearms to those on no-fly lists.

Federal lawmakers must also prioritize more funding for mental health issues.
 

MidwayUSA Celebrates 40 Years

I wanted to be a millionaire by age 40, then retire so I could hunt and fish all the time,” recalled MidwayUSA founder and CEO Larry Potterfield from his office desk in Columbia, Mo. Barely an adult at the time he declared this goal, the young Potterfield, like so many of us, was perhaps a little naive. You see, 40 years after starting his company in 1977, he is still working, albeit with plenty of time taken for hunting and fishing trips around the world. But as literature from midwayusa.com, his wife Brenda and Larry himself reveal, a successful business doesn’t just start up and run itself. It all began in rural Missouri, on the outskirts of a town called Ely, population 26.

Bill sponsor John Becker, R-Cincinnati, calls this the “jerk clause”— as in, “if you choose to be a jerk about it and refuse to leave,” the person would be subject to criminal charges.

It’s no surprise that many opponents of House Bill 233 raised constitutional objections about violating rights of private property owners. Groups testifying against the bill included the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association, Ohio Association of Police Chiefs, Ohio Council of Retail Merchants and the Ohio Restaurant Association.

Ed.: There is no private property right to decide what actions will be crimes.

Shannon Watts is the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense. She's been an astute observer, and opponent, of the National Rifle Association, which recently released a new video in what might be called its culture-war series. This one features NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch issuing an attack on the New York Times. Addressing the paper directly, Loesch promises, gangland style, "We're coming for you."

Retail giant Walmart is receiving fierce criticism on social media after a photo surfaced Wednesday afternoon that appears to show a gun case with a back-to-school advertisement inside one of the company’s stores.

The image was first tweeted by Twitter user Ismail Kidd Noorzai, who identifies himself as a resident of Los Angeles. The user originally captioned the photo, which shows a case of rifles with a sign reading “Own the school year like a hero,” simply, “Oh, Walmart.”

Attorney General Steve Marshall said in a press release Monday that news reports claiming that all the stolen guns have been recovered are untrue, and that more are out there.

In April, the The Trace reported that road-rage altercations involving guns have increased dramatically in the United States, more than doubling from 241 recorded in 2014 to 623 last year. The pace shows no signs of letting up. In the first six months of 2017, there were at least 325 incidents, our analysis of incidents tracked by the nonprofit Gun Violence Archive found — nearly two each day. The rate, which includes fatal and nonfatal shootings, along with disputes in which someone brandished a gun, is on pace to surpass last year’s total.
