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.

It's Unconstitutional: UVA Student Files Lawsuit Challenging Handgun Purchase Law :: 10/27/2018

It’s the law. You can buy rifles and shotguns at 18, but for a handgun—it’s 21. It’s the same across most states. In the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting last February, some states—like Vermont and Florida—have increased the age limit for all gun sales to 21 years of age. The shooting, which left 17 people dead, spurred another intense wave of anti-gun activism, which as been mostly beaten back.  Yet, the anti-gun movement did score some wins with these pieces of legislation, which effectively deprived law-abiding adults the right to bear arms. It’s unconstitutional and yes—that provision in Florida’s law has been challenged, though it’s a lawsuit that’s most likely going to take years to resolve.

Former Portsmouth, VA City Employee Sues, Claiming Violation Of 2A Rights :: 10/09/2018

If you’re unable to carry a firearm at work, but you have a permit and believe in carrying a gun everywhere else, what are you supposed to do?
