NRA Files Lawsuit Against NY In Retaliation :: 08/07/2020

The state of New York is trying to kill the National Rifle Association. While the state may claim all sorts of things in their legal action against the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, the truth of the matter is that all they’re doing is in an effort to destroy an ideological opponent. Oh, they might say the NRA isn’t spending money appropriately, but do you think they really give a damn what happens to the money folks like us donate to the NRA? Do you think the state of New York actually cares about us and our efforts to protect our Second Amendment rights?

Wyoming State Supreme Court Won't Hear Preemption Case :: 08/05/2020

Preemption is something we’ve spent a fair bit of time talking about here. After all, it’s an important bit of legislation that prevents a patchwork of gun control laws that no one can keep track of.

D.C. May Be Facing ANOTHER Heller Lawsuit :: 07/21/2020

Heller vs. District of Columbia is easily one of the most important Supreme Court decisions ever. Even if the lower courts aren’t paying much attention to it, it definitively protects the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right and bars state and local governments from banning classes of firearms.

Judge Deals Remington A Setback In Sandy Hook Case :: 07/16/2020

William Marcus Wilson believed he was standing his ground when he fired at a pickup truck he says was trying to run his car off the road as he drove home with his girlfriend one night last month. But Wilson, 21, who goes by Marc, is a Black man from a small city in Georgia, and the girlfriend in the car with him was white, and, according to his family and attorneys, that fact has complicated matters.

VA Judge Grants Partial Injunction Against New Background Check Law :: 07/14/2020

Virginia’s new “universal background check” law violates the constitutional rights of state residents between the ages of 18-20, according to a decision by a circuit court judge Monday afternoon granting a partial injunction against the law that took effect on July 1st. That means that at the moment, only 18, 19, and 20-year olds are exempt from the requirement to undergo a background check before a private or commercial gun sale.

Colorado Supreme Court reaffirms self-defense right to 'stand your ground' :: 07/09/2020

DENVER–In a June 29 ruling the Colorado Supreme Court threw out the conviction of a woman who stabbed a man in the neck during an altercation and ordered a new trial due to prosecutorial misconduct, as well as reaffirmed Colorado’s “no duty to retreat” rule, which, as Justice Hood wrote in the state high court’s decision, “permits non-aggressors to stand their ground when acting in self-defense.”

Magazine Ban Upheld By CO Supreme Court :: 06/30/2020

For some reason, anti-gunners seem to find it troubling if a firearm can carry “too many” rounds. I put that in quotes because, well, that number is completely arbitrary and varies from person to person to some degree. After all, it wasn’t all that long ago that Oregon sought to limit round capacity to just five shots.

Supreme Court Judge Questions Trump's Bump-Fire Stock Ban :: 06/25/2020

President Donald Trump hasn’t been the disaster for the Second Amendment that his 2016 Democrat challenger Hillary Clinton undoubtedly would have been. However, one anti-gun law that Trump did institute through an executive action is coming under fire by at least a few judges.

The Roberts' Supreme Court Will Not Defend The Second Amendment! :: 06/22/2020

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- These last few weeks, the Arbalest Quarrel has been working steadfastly on analyzing the NYC gun transport case. We felt a detailed analysis necessary as we had serious doubts the Court would grant cert in any of the ten pending Second Amendment cases. The NYC case provided our best chance for a serious Court review of 2A, ten years after the McDonald decision.
