Anti-Gunners: Symposium: Disrupting the consensus on Second Amendment doctrine would be a mistake :: 11/20/2019

In one sense, the stakes in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York couldn’t be lower: The challenged regulation, a one-of-a-kind New York City restriction on transporting licensed handguns outside city limits, has already been repealed, arguably rendering the case moot. But when it comes to Second Amendment doctrine and methodology, the stakes are higher than they’ve been in a decade.

Ohio Supreme Court To Decide Whether Gun Owners Can Drink At Home :: 11/18/2019

The idea of alcohol prohibition was settled almost a century ago when the Volstead Act was repealed by yet another constitutional amendment. It’s the only amendment that’s been passed, then repealed a short time later. In truth, prohibition was a complete and total disaster.

The Supreme Court is allowing families of the Sandy Hook massacre to proceed with a lawsuit against gun manufacturer Remington Arms.

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.

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.”
