  1. A gun shop was burglarized in Concord, N.C., early Friday morning, two nights after a similar crime in the same town. Suspects crashed a stolen car through the front door of Eagle Guns and Range at 3 a.m. and stole 10 semiautomatic guns. On Tuesday, thieves got into Concord’s Ideal Sportsman through the gun store’s roof.

  2. A German firearms maker announced it will release a new smart gun model in the U.S. next year. Armatix LLC's iP9 9mm semi-automatic pistol will be equipped with a fingerprint reader, and will retail at $1,365. Sales will kick off in Florida. In 2014, Armatix attempted to introduce its first smart gun model in California and Maryland, but it was pulled from shelves due to backlash from gun rights advocates.

  3. There have been 51 toddler-involved shootings in the U.S. so far this year. Thirty-nine of those cases were self-inflicted gunshot wounds, 40 percent of which were fatal. In the remaining cases, children shot other people. This year's count has surpassed the 47 toddler-involved shootings that occurred in the same time period in 2015. By the end of last year, 58 toddlers had shot themselves or others — more than one per week.

  4. The National Rifle Association's latest ad targeting Hillary Clinton accuses the Democratic presidential candidate of being a liar. It features statements she has made about the Second Amendment and classified emails passing through her private server. The ad will run in Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia through the end of the month. The NRA spent $5 million on the campaign.
