NAT’L – LE – What your department’s off duty/concealed carry training program should include

What are the laws in your state that allow officers to carry a firearm off duty? What are the limitations? Is your program current?

TX – LE/ HOME DEFENSE- Morning News Says Cops Should ‘Defer’ to Gun Owners. They’re Totally Nuts.

The Dallas Morning News editorial page took a blindfolded backward step off the diving board Monday in an editorial asserting that police have an “obligation of deference” to armed homeowners in terms of who may shoot first. As its predicate for this insane suggestion, the paper exploits the horrible case of Atatiana Jefferson, who was shot to death in her own home Oct. 12 by a Fort Worth…

Gun with a chip: U.S. Army contracts may lead to a smarter firearm

REUTERS.COM October 18, 2019 – A carbine that can call in an airstrike. A computer-aided scope on a machine gun that can turn just about anyone into a marksman.

NAT’L – MILITARY – How the U.S. Military Could Dominate: New Ammo?

Recently, much attention has been focused on the state of the U.S. military’s arsenal of small arms. After the announcement and subsequent cancellation of the U.S. Army’s 7.62 Interim Combat Service Rifle project, many were left wondering what the U.S. Army’s actual plan was for a future service rifle.

CA – LE – How a Silicon Valley Start-up Is Helping Police Get Smarter About Solving Gun Crimes

Despite its depiction in Hollywood, police work is often a startlingly low-tech enterprise. Futuristic laboratories and slick computer interfaces are few and far between.
