NY Court: A Gun Permit Doesn't Equal Reasonable Cause :: 12/21/2018

If you’re a concealed carrier from a pro-gun state, the idea of traveling to an anti-gun state like New York or New Jersey can be concerning. For many, it’s just easier to leave the gun at home than to try to navigate the Byzantine and draconian gun laws these states have on the books.


Court Rules Katie Couric's Deception Real, But Not Defamation :: 12/17/2018

When Katie Couric released her anti-gun “documentary,” it made some people furious. Couric had a reputation as a serious journalist, one that gained her access to gun rights activists that a partisan hack like Michael Moore wouldn’t get.


Court Rules Second Amendment Protects Nunchucks :: 12/17/2018

As a child of the 1980s, martial arts films were all the rage. Every other movie seemed to feature “ninja” in the title or something like that. As a result, almost every male of my generation grew up knowing martial arts weapons by name. Especially for kids who were too young to own firearms, martial arts weapons were something we could probably get and feel a little safer.


Fourth Circuit Rejects Libel Claims over Misleading Edits in Katie Couric's Under the Gun :: 12/17/2018

The "questionable" "editing choices," the court said, weren't sufficiently injurious to reputation to qualify as libelous (whether or not they conveyed a false message).


SCOTUS Agrees To Hear Case That May Ultimately Undermine ATF :: 12/11/2018

One of the biggest problems with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) isn’t that it enforces the law. I mean, it exists explicitly for that purpose, so that’s kind of what it’s supposed to be doing.


Short Circuit: A Roundup of Recent Federal Court Decisions :: 12/08/2018

Please enjoy the latest edition of Short Circuit, a weekly feature from the Institute for Justice.


A Powerful Dissent Charges Judges Who Casually Uphold Magazine Restrictions With Disrespecting the Second Amendment :: 12/07/2018

Yesterday the U.S. Court of Appeals Court for the 3rd Circuit upheld New Jersey's 10-round limit on gun magazines, echoing five other federal appeals courts that have found such laws to be consistent with the Second Amendment. "New Jersey's law reasonably fits the State's interest in public safety and does not unconstitutionally burden the Second Amendment's right to self-defense in the home," Judge Patty Shwartz concludes in an opinion joined by Judge Joseph Greenaway.


Appeals Court Confirms Preemption Applies To Arena Authority :: 12/05/2018

The great thing about preemption is that it means there’s not some patchwork of laws all over the state. It means that if you do something that’s legal in one part of the state, then travel to another part of the state, you’re still golden. Believe me, that matters.


U.S. Supreme Court Urged to Consider NYC Second Amendment Lawsuit :: 12/04/2018

Attorneys General from 15 states and two governors signed a legal brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hear arguments in a federal lawsuit challenging a New York City ordinance restricting the transportation of firearms in the city.

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) has petitioned the Supreme Court to review its case, Mance v. Whitaker, challenging the long-standing ban on interstate handgun sales to law-abiding citizens from other states.


Lawsuit: Medical marijuana users should retain Second Amendment rights :: 11/22/2018

The disconnect between state and federal laws regarding marijuana use continues to cause headaches in our courts. We previously saw cases where people were being denied jobs after failing a drug screening test even though they informed their prospective employer they had a medical marijuana prescription. (One woman in Connecticut actually prevailed in court on that issue, but still failed to get her job back.)


NJ Gun Owners File Suit Over Magazine Capacity Limit :: 11/21/2018

New Jersey seems to go out of its way to screw over gun owners, especially when it comes to ammunition.


Pa Supreme Court agrees to hear case over donor names and Harrisburg's legal defense fund for gun lawsuits :: 11/21/2018

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to weigh in on whether the city of Harrisburg must disclose the names and addresses of people who donated money to help the city defend its gun ordinances.


Retailers Continue To Be Sued Over Misused Firearms :: 11/21/2018

Gun control activists have long claimed that suing those who make and sell firearms is a viable tactic, that it’s somehow just to blame them for what someone else has done. It was so bad that Congress took action, passing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act to curtail that brand of nonsense.


Killing You Softly with His Words - Judge Approves Seattle Gun Storage Law :: 11/20/2018

A judge in Washington State wants us to lock up our guns. That sounds like it could be a good idea, but facts matter when it comes to self-defense. Most of these untested “gun-safety” ideas actually make things worse rather than better. The goal is to save lives, and it isn’t easy.


Judge Blocks 'Security Fee' For Pro-Gun Speaker At Kent State :: 11/17/2018

Kaitlyn Bennett made her name by walking through the campus with an AR strapped to her back. Her point was that just days before, as a student at Kent State, what she was doing was illegal. However, since she had graduated the day before, suddenly her act was perfectly legal.


Lawsuit Filed to Block Washington's I-1639 :: 11/16/2018

The midterm elections garnered most of the press attention earlier this month, but for gun rights advocates, a Washington state ballot initiative was of equal importance. I-1639 sought to sweep in a whole slew of gun control laws and, unfortunately, it passed. That means gun owners in the state are stuck with the ramifications of this law and, to make matters worse, there’s no one to vote out over this.
