NRA Drops Lawsuit Over 'Terrorist' Label :: 11/08/2019

When the city of San Francisco voted to label the National Rifle Association as “terrorists,” it upset a lot of folks. The idea of labeling someone a terrorist isn’t something to be done lightly. Further, there were absolutely no grounds for it. One would be hardpressed to find any links between the NRA and any mass shooter, much less one who was politically motivated.

SCOTUS To Decide If It Will Hear Case Stemming From Sandy Hook :: 11/06/2019

The Supreme Court doesn’t hear every case brought before it. It decides which cases it wants to hear and which cases it doesn’t. Ever since the McDonald decision almost a decade ago, though, the Court has been reticent to hear any further cases on the good old Second Amendment. Countless others have been declined.

Missouri Man Who Brought Rifle To Walmart Takes Guilty Plea :: 11/05/2019

You may remember the story of Dmitriy Andreychenko from a couple of months ago. He’s the young man from Missouri who thought it would be a good idea to strap on some body armor, grab his AR-15, and take a little stroll while filming himself inside his local Walmart as a “test” of his Second Amendment rights just days after the shootings at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

Dozens Of Members Of Congress Urge SCOTUS To Hear This Gun Case :: 11/01/2019

Ninety-four members of Congress are asking the Supreme Court to hear a challenge to a Massachusetts “assault weapons ban” enacted by Attorney General Maura Healey, who announced in 2016 that the ban, which was originally passed in 1998, had been wrongly interpreted for the past eighteen years, and was actually far broader and more all-encompassing than the way it had originally been enforced. Gun owners, firearms retailers, and Second Amendment groups cried foul and sued over Healey’s decision, which amounted to new law via a legal opinion rather than legislation.

Judge Blocks Last Minute Bid to Stop Oklahoma's Permitless Carry Law :: 10/31/2019

An Oklahoma County judge on Wednesday afternoon denied an attempt by opponents of Oklahoma’s new permitless carry law to stop the legislation from taking effect on Friday. The last minute legal maneuver was the latest attempt to block the law by State Rep. Jason Lowe, who claimed that the bill authorizing permitless carry violates a state law requiring legislation to deal with a single subject. It’s an argument without merit, and Judge Don Andrews declined to issue an injunction that would stop the law from taking effect.

The Truth About America's Founding and Slavery :: 10/31/2019

The New York Times’ 1619 Project is the latest attempt from the left to retell history. But Allen Guelzo thinks the Times made some key errors. “The hope of many members of the Constitutional Convention, that slavery could be abolished, was linked to their conviction that the abolition of slavery was simply one more step that needed to be taken to free us from the inheritance of British colonialism and British imperialism,” Guelzo, a research scholar at Princeton University, says. “The 1619 Project tends to invert that.”

Montana's Supreme Court Strikes Down Universal Background Check Law :: 10/23/2019

The Montana State Supreme Court rejected a “universal background check law” put on the books in Missoula, saying the local ordinance conflicts with the state’s firearms preemption law that leaves gun legislation in the hands of state lawmakers, not local officials.

GA Supreme Court Kicks Botanical Garden Case Back To Lower Court :: 10/08/2019

While I consider myself a staunch supporter of gun rights, I also support property rights just as vehemently. I think people have a right to do what they want with their own property, even if I think they’re stupid for doing so. This becomes an issue for me when property rights butt straight into gun rights, such as gun-free zones in states where private property owners can make their own determination on the issue.

Oklahoma’s new constitutional carry law goes into effect November 1st, but gun control activists are hoping to block implementation in the next few weeks. State Rep.

U.S. Supreme Court Schedules New York Second Amendment Case For Argument :: 09/24/2019

In January, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a Second Amendment challenge to a gun control law for the first time in nearly 10 years. The case arose from a New York City regulation that banned city residents with “premises” handgun licenses from taking their own legally-owned firearms outside Gotham for lawful purposes. The city defended the law all the way to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, insisting it was essential to public safety. But ever since the Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal of that decision, city and state officials in New York have been running scared, desperately maneuvering to convince the justices to dismiss it.
