Nevada Supreme Court Rules Gun Makers Aren't Responsible For Las Vegas :: 12/04/2021

Unlawful Firearm Possession Charge Overturned :: 12/02/2021

The spectrum of opinions on who may or may not be able to possess firearms is broad. One camp might say everyone has a right to arms, period. Another camp might say that no one should be able to have arms of any type, period. In between these diametrically opposite ideals lies federal and state disqualifiers for the possession of firearms.

Gunmakers Ask Judge To Toss $10B Lawsuit Filed By Mexican Government :: 11/23/2021

Earlier this year, the government of Mexico filed a $10-billion lawsuit against several (but not all) of the major gun manufacturers in the United States, accusing them of intentionally arming drug cartels south of the border and turning a blind eye to the widespread violence inflicted by the cartels and their illicitly-obtained firearms. The Mexican government has received an assist in the form of legal assistance from American gun control supporters, who view the lawsuit as an avenue to bankrupt some of the biggest names in the firearms industry (or at least force them to pay out big money in their defense).

Heller Wins Again, DC To Exorcise Its Ghost Gun Ban :: 11/22/2021

If you’re reading this, the name Dick Heller should be in your memory bank. If you don’t quite know who Dick Heller is, to bring you up to speed, he’s the lead plaintiff from the 2008 challenge to Washington, DC’s ban on handguns. When people talk about “The Heller” decision, that’s the one that’s being discussed. Well, Dick did not stop fighting for freedoms in 2008 and recently a case coined “Heller 4” has bared some fruit. In September of 2021 Heller filed a challenge against DC’s 2020 ban on so-called ghost guns as well as an older prohibition on building one’s own firearms. The law included a very broad definition of “ghost gun”.

Supreme Court – -(AmmoLand.com)- After the oral arguments in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association vs. Bruen, Second Amendment supporters have to play the waiting game – it takes time for the Supreme Court to come up with their opinions.

NYT: Questioning by Justices Suggest N.Y. Gun Law 'Unlikely to Survive' :: 11/05/2021

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Don’t break out the party favors just yet, but when the New York Times concurs with one of the nation’s leading gun-rights advocates that the U.S. Supreme Court is likely to strike down a gun control law in New York State, the odds they’re both right increases dramatically.

SCOTUS Weighs Public Transportation & The Right To Carry :: 11/04/2021

One of the arguments raised by New York Solicitor General Barbara Underwood in her defense of the state’s carry permit laws is that, if the average citizen could carry a firearm in self-defense in New York City, then it would be sheer pandemonium on the city’s public transportation system. Why, you’d have guns in subways, on ferries, on buses if the state were forced to adopt a “shall issue” standard for issuing concealed carry licenses. Mayhem would surely ensue in Gotham if that came to pass.

What the US Supreme Court Won't do for Our Right to Bear Arms :: 10/17/2021

State legislators denied the ordinary person the right to bear arms in New York. That decision was upheld in state and lower courts. In New York City, the “privilege” to defend yourself with a firearm in public is only given to a select few. You need not apply unless you are an ex-law enforcement officer, a judge, a politicians, or an elite celebrity. That privilege is paid for with political power or campaign donations. Remember that the bill of rights is designed to limit the actions of government. Big government politicians turned that on its head so they could sell our rights back to a select few of us at exorbitant prices. Now, the US Supreme court will decide if the second amendment is a real right or only a forgettable footnote in the bill of rights.
