District Court Lands Blow Against Bump Stock Ban :: 04/01/2020

In the days of COVID-19, not many people are talking about bump stocks right about now. That’s understandable. After all, they have other things on their minds these days. Yet that doesn’t mean gun rights advocates have forgotten about them, either.

Everytown Law: It's Totally Constitutional To Close Gun Stores Right Now :: 04/01/2020

Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun law firm, Everytown Law, is trying to convince elected officials around the country to shut down gun stores during the current national emergency, and has sent a letter to state and local officials in charge of enforcing COVID-19 emergency closure orders offering up a strategy and legal argument for those who do so. Fortunately for gun owners, and unfortunately for the gun control lobby, their argument doesn’t stand up to the slightest bit of legal scrutiny.

Trump to Anti-Gun Governors: 'Back Off' :: 04/01/2020

For more than 150 years, gun laws in the United States were essential, as written in the Bill of Rights: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” It was not until the second half of the 20th Century that gun control as we know it took hold.  By that time, of course, the United States had survived a bloody civil war, expanded territorially from the eastern seaboard to the Arctic Circle, fought in and emerged victorious in two World Wars, and was the only superpower to stand against the expansionist communist regimes in the Soviet Union and Red China.

Pandemic Exposes Dangers of So-Called "Universal" Background Checks :: 03/31/2020

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- As the COVID-19 pandemic makes its way across the country, Americans are getting an important lesson in the dangers of placing a prior restraint on the exercise of a constitutional right. The vast increase in those seeking protection in the Second Amendment during this period of uncertainty has caused the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and Point of Contact State background check systems to buckle. Worse, some jurisdictions that have criminalized the private transfer of firearms have also shut down access to gun stores or their state criminal background check system. This lethal combination of misguided policies has made it impossible for millions of Americans to acquire, or even borrow or lend, firearms during this moment of crisis.

There is No Emergency Shutdown of the Second Amendment :: 03/30/2020

Give someone power if you want to see their character. Unfortunately, the usual characters have revealed themselves during the Wuhan virus epidemic. Government officials asked citizens to limit their contact with others in order to slow the spread of the virus. Some government officials went well beyond that. They closed roads, released jail inmates, refused to arrest or prosecute suspects, closed gun stores, and refused to process firearms applications. It is precisely during such an emergency that we need government officials to stay within their authority.. and not one inch beyond.

To Bear Arms for Self-Defense: A Right of the People or a Privilege of the Few? :: 03/27/2020

During oral argument in the seminal case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy asked counsel for the government whether the Second Amendment’s second clause - “the right of the people to keep and bear arms”[1] - concerned something besides the militia. When counsel replied that those words referred only to “a military context,” Justice Kennedy appeared to disagree by asking the further question, “It had nothing to do with the concern of the remote settler to defend himself and his family against hostile Indian tribes and outlaws, wolves and bears and grizzlies and things like that?”[2] This question suggested that he read the Amendment to protect individual rights. But it also implied that the right extends outside the home, where unfriendly humans and animals would be encountered.
