Federal District Court Rules Two Hawaii Gun Control Laws Violate the Second Amendment :: 08/17/2021
When you think ‘gun control,’ the states that immediately come to most people’s minds are California, New York, New Jersey and a few other usual suspects. But Hawaii takes a back seat to no one in its zeal to keep its citizens disarmed (see, for example, the state’s virtual ban on carrying guns outside the home). But yesterday, a US District Court judge struck down two laws that are clearly intended to limit or outright discourage individuals from buying and owning firearms.

ATF Sued By Trigger Manufacturer :: 08/15/2021
One of the biggest concerns for gun owners with the current administration is that Joe Biden will try to use the regulatory powers of the executive branch to impose new restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms since he can’t get his gun ban plan through Congress.

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.

National Review Takes Aim At Challenge To Heller :: 08/09/2021
The Heller decision is more than a decade old at this point.
