Fast and Furious II: Follow-up to what we know so far: "Digging deeper into the Fast and Furious cover-up reveals initial blame at the US Department of State​, direction from the Department of Justice, and a finish at the mercy of a Congressional review. ... Exporting guns from the US is indeed a violation of the Arms Export Control Act, so red flags were raised by 'whistleblowers' when ATF agents were expected to circumvent Federal law."

Furiously unraveling — gun scandal still growing: "The joke goes that anything named 'Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' ought to be a convenience store instead of an arm of the federal government, but what's going on in Washington these days with the embattled agency is no laughing matter. Hardly a week passes now without some revelation about the Obama administration's complicity in what may yet turn out to be one of the worst and most lethal scandals in American history: Operation Fast and Furious."

Florida university sued Over Parking Lot Gun Ban: "Florida Carry, Inc. has today filed a lawsuit against the University of North Florida (UNF), seeking a permanent injunction from enforcing its unlawful ban on firearms and weapons and a court order to repeal their unlawful regulations, remove all preempted signs. Florida Carry filed this case on behalf of Florida Gun Owners and our members. One such member, Alexandria Lainez, is a single mother who has received extensive training in firearms and self-defense to be prepared to protect herself and her young child should that horrible need arise. Alexandria is a full time student at UNF and worries that she has to choose between her family’s safety and her education on a daily basis while attending college."

WI: No guns for University of Wisconsin professors: "A new law takes effect in Wisconsin on November 1 that allows people with concealed weapons permits to bring their guns onto university campuses in the state. But that privilege will not extend to professors and other school officials. The Badger Herald reports that the University of Wisconsin Faculty Senate voted Monday night to ban concealed weapons by all school employees, except for police officers"
