San Antonio police Chief William McManus explained Texas law also provides that if anyone feels threatened by the open display of weapons, the person carrying can be charged with disorderly conduct.Now that's a gift to the prohibitionists.

Based on one of these ex orders the atf has already stated they want CLEO sign off on ALL nfa items, be it a trust or individual. Problem is most CLEO refuse to sign, hence the trust route. The atf still does a background check on the trustee of the trust (I have 4 nfa checks pending since January 2013 that I am still waiting on completion for, and I work or the DOJ !!!) but the request for CLEO sign off will keep thousands of legal gun owners from purchasing NFA weapons. All this at a time when my state (NC) just relaxed their NFA laws by making trusts 100% legal, and allowing the use of suppresors for hunting.
‘Brutal and Vicious’: Armed German Police Storm Homeschooling Family’s House and Forcibly Seize Children, Report Claims...perfectly acceptable, because that's the only way you're going to get many parents to subject their children to the so called education offered in the public schools.
And yes, I'm a home schooler. If anyone is gonna indoctrinate my kids, its gonna be me.

One new policy will end a government practice that lets military weapons, sold or donated by the U.S. to allies, be reimported into the U.S. by private entities. The White House said the U.S. has approved 250,000 of those guns to be reimported since 2005; under the new policy, only museums and a few other entities like the government will be eligible to reimport military-grade firearms.So much for the Korean Garands.
The Obama administration is also proposing a federal rule to stop those who would be ineligible to pass a background check from skirting the law by registering a gun to a corporation or trust. The new rule would require people associated with those entities, like beneficiaries and trustees, to undergo the same type of fingerprint-based background checks as individuals if they want to register guns.
UPDATE: Sebastian has commentary here on the matter. All I can say is since when has Obama let a little thing like the law get in his way. Well?

Sent 40 years into the past by a spell of Chief Sitting Bull, General George Custer and the Seventh Cavalry join Davy Crockett to fight at the Alamo against Mexican forces led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.For $2.99 I figured I could take the chance. I'm glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well researched. Good plot. Good characterizations. It compares favorably to Conroy, Flint, and Turtledove. I'd really like to see more.

Dem bill would trigger huge new taxes on guns, ammoAs the man says, the point here isn't to combat anything but honest gun owners. Call it what you want. Its still gun control.
“What the anti-gun interests can’t ban, they want to tax it out of existence,” Alan Gottlieb, chairman for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, told FoxNews.com. “It’s nothing more than confiscatory taxation.
The prognosis for this bill is dire, but call your representatives anyway and tell them to oppose it.

A gun belonging to a York County Sheriff’s Office deputy accidentally discharged Monday night outside York High School, authorities say.At the least, I'm pretty sure there was a finger involved there somehow...and a deputy...and an unholstered duty weapon. Just saying...
The deputy, who is the school’s resource officer, was among four people in the vicinity at the time, the spokesman said. Authorities say the deputy has been placed on administrative leave, and another school resource officer has been assigned at York High.

For what its worth,* It seems to me that whether the police can make it stick will hinge on whether the child discharged the firearm or not since that's required by the statute.
Anyway, the lady needs to keep her weapon in a sleeve or holster when its in her purse.
* Not much in that I'm not an attorney.
[UPDATE] No charges.

“Staff is armed and trained,” reads a sign posted outside the Arkansas Christian Academy in Bryant, Ark. “Any attempt to harm our children will be met with deadly force.”Dustin McDaniel, the Democrat Attorney General of Arkansas, has barred public schools from doing the same. Don't let the fact that gun free zones haven't worked anywhere else hinder you from the same failed policy Mr. Attorney General.

The reason for claiming that the Constitution alone among legal texts is inaccessible to lawyers is not that its original communicative content is unclear, but that some of its original meaning is all too clear and some people don’t like it, so it must be gotten rid of somehow. - Randy BarnettH/T to David.

- The story claims the gun accidentally discharged into the
dumb shit'sdriver's groin. While I'm sure he didn't intend to shoot himself, I'm also sure his finger was involved in the discharge of the gun.
- I seriously doubt we'd be so lucky that his shot took him out of the gene pool. That would be a happy ending.

Too much law enforcement in America has lost all sense of proportion: If you need six armed officers to police a nonagenarian in an old folks’ home, seven armed officers to police a 20-year-old female you suspect might have a beer in her shopping bag, thirteen armed officers to terminate Giggles the baby doe, you’re doing it wrong — and you’re the real threat to public order. - Mark SteynH/T to Jeff.

Blacks may make up just 16.6 percent of Florida's population, but they account for over 31 percent of the state's defendants invoking a Stand Your Ground defense. Black defendants who invoke this statute to justify their actions are acquitted 8 percent more frequently than whites who use that same defense. - Sherwin Lott, John LottH/T to David.

"I would prefer to stay with the current policy that I'm pleased with rather than go through a change if I don't need to go through that change," said acting IRS chief Danny Werfel, during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing....especially when they find that Obamacare applies to them as well.
Now that's funny.
