California Deputies File Lawsuit Against Polymer80 :: 08/13/2021

We live in a litigious society. People will sue at the drop of a hat for some idiotic reason. However, in the gun world, lawsuits happen for two reasons. One is that there was a legitimate fault in a gun that caused injury. We all get those lawsuits. The other are those that exist just to make it too costly for a gun-related company to continue to do business.

National Review Takes Aim At Challenge To Heller :: 08/09/2021

The Heller decision is more than a decade old at this point. The decision became one of the most important decisions regarding the Second Amendment in history as it definitively found that the amendment preserved an individual, not a collective right. Of course, the collective right argument has never really made any sense to me, but people still make it.

Fed Up: Gun Owners Sue Over Lengthy Licensing, Permitting Delays :: 08/08/2021

Since the start of the COVID pandemic last spring, plenty of government agencies have closed their offices to the public or limited hours and interaction with staff in an attempt to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Sheriff Sued Over Concealed Carry Licensing Delays :: 08/07/2021

Since the start of the COVID pandemic last spring, plenty of government agencies have closed their offices to the public or limited hours and interaction with staff in an attempt to mitigate the spread of the virus. That’s perfectly understandable, but it’s also no excuse when those agencies fail to uphold their responsibilities to the citizens they serve. The Second Amendment activists at Grass Roots North Carolina are taking that argument to court with a lawsuit filed this week that accuses the Mecklenburg County sheriff of keeping both gun owners and those who’d like to purchase a handgun in a legal limbo for months on end.

The 2017 shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs is the worst church shooting in American history, but without an armed citizen named Stephen Williford, it’s possible the killer would have found another place to unleash his evil rage and the number of those killed and injured could have been even higher.

Ninth Circuit En Banc Panel Hears Challenge to Ban on Standard Capacity Magazines :: 06/23/2021

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- An 11-judge panel, sitting en banc, heard oral arguments in Duncan v. Bonta (formerly Duncan v. Becerra). The CRPA lawsuit, which challenges California’s flat ban on magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, was the first successful constitutional challenge to bans on so-called “large-capacity magazines” in the country.
