Poll: Half of voters don't believe new gun control laws effective at preventing mass shootings :: 05/24/2022
For several days now we’ve been discussing the fact that Democrats are divided about how hard to push for new federal gun control laws in the wake of the targeted attack on a Buffalo grocery store, with even the staunchest supporters of criminalizing the right to keep and bear arms reluctantly acknowledging that the odds of winning Senate approval for universal background checks or Joe Biden’s assault weapons ban is basically “zero.”

I wish we were talking about a true change of heart on the part of many Democratic politicians, but the reluctance to pursue new gun control legislation in the wake of the mass shooting in Buffalo, New York appears to be based far more on political calculations than any scales falling off the eyes of gun-banners in Congress.

Gun Control Fails, Biden Wants More :: 05/22/2022

Edward Clyde Ledford is a lucky man, though I can’t speak to how intelligent he is.

If there’s ever been a better time for car control... :: 05/22/2022
Back in 2015 I remember reading a Forbes article that’s worth bringing up; “Should Guns Be Regulated Like Cars?” While this may seem like dated material, recent reporting from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) notes that there were approximately 42,915 motor vehicle fatalities in 2021, and I promise there’s relevance. This total number shows a rise of 10.5% from 2020. The issue with this number is that the 40k+ deaths is at a 16 year high since 2005, according to the NHTSA.

Gun owners should be glad we don't have Justice Garland :: 05/21/2022
Boy did we dodge a bullet when it comes to the Supreme Court of the United States. Although we all need to be braced for impact, as the tides can change quickly, the mortality of man is not endless. We can at least celebrate the fact that current Attorney General Merrick Garland is not seated at the High Court.
JSD Supply says "no thank you" to ATF’s cease and desist :: 05/21/2022
Last week Tom covered the cease and desist letter that JSD Supply received from the ATF on March 12, 2022. In the letter, the ATF admonished JSD Supply, owned and operated by Jordan Vinroe, over the sales of 80% build kits, and for having the potentiality of selling the rest of the tools and parts necessary to make a fully functioning firearm. In their letter, the ATF said that their order had nothing to do with the roll out of new regulations on firearm frames and receivers. With a collective eye roll, we all said “okay” to that. After doing some due diligence, JSD is saying “no thank you” to the ATF and has filed a temporary restraining order against the rogue agency.

The conservative majority on the Supreme Court is potentially poised to take down one of the nation’s oldest and most restrictive gun-control laws this summer. New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen will be the court’s first major Second Amendment case in more than a decade and happens to be coming amid rising national gun violence and an uptick in gun sales in recent years. What the justices decide could unravel laws across the nation restricting who can carry guns in public.
New Mexico Republicans say staffers will not comply with state capitol gun ban :: 05/20/2022
Last year, the Democrats in control of New Mexico’s state legislature imposed a ban on the general public lawfully carrying firearms inside the state capitol building, known as the Roundhouse.
