UPDATE: ATF Halts AR-15 Ammo Ban!

Dear Members:

The ATF has just announced that a final decision on their recent controversial proposal to ban common M855 and SS109 AR-15 ammunition will be delayed. After receiving a large number of comments critical to the ATF’s proposed “armor-piercing ammunition” framework, along with strong opposition from a majority of Congress, the ATF has decided to shelve the proposal indefinitely in favor of further study. The framework was to be used to evaluate whether or not ammunition was to be considered armor-piercing under federal law, and would have lifted a long-standing exemption applied to M855 and SS109 ammunition, effectively making it illegal to import, manufacture, or sell the cartridges.

Texas Gun Law: Armed And Educated

In case you missed it, Texas Law Shield is pleased to announce the release of Texas Gun Law: Armed And Educated. With over 1,000 copies sold in its first week, Armed And Educated is the one book every gun owner needs in his or her library!

This is a comprehensive handbook written to provide essential law every gun owner needs to know! Armed And Educated gives the reader a detailed legal analysis (with real-world examples) of specific laws important to firearms owners.

Important topics covered:

  • The law of justification: when can you be legally excused under the law?
  • The law of self-defense: when can you legally shoot?
  • When can you protect property with deadly force?
  • Can you use deadly force against an animal?
  • Why can I carry in some parking lots but not others?
  • And much, much more!

Get your copy today! One NRA Law Enforcement Division Firearms Instructor had this to say after reading the book:

This book is a “must read” for any Texan who owns a gun. The authors have skillfully cut through the legalese and produced a format that is easy for the average Joe to utilize and understand. If its true that knowledge is power, then this book is a heavyweight.
