MI: Eastpointe's new gun ordinance has some up in arms
Submitted by: Corey Salo

A new gun ordinance in Eastpointe is coming under fire from gun rights advocates, but supporters said penalizing people who leave their firearms in unlocked vehicles is an effort to crack down on rising crime and gun violence.

Under the law that took effect in October, owners who store their firearms in unlocked vehicles in the Macomb County community can be fined up to $350 on a first offense and could face up to 90 days in jail.

Although people have a duty to responsibly handle their weapons, gun rights advocate Rick Ector of Legally Armed in Detroit said the ordinance punishes gun owners and absolves criminals who steal firearms.

 

VA: Hunting and self-defense do not require such a high level of gun lethality

Assume that the expected laws would limit the number of guns sold and the capacity of magazines, and require registration and add a “red-flag” law. I know some people grow up with rifles for hunting and handguns for protection. But semiautomatic weapons are not part of that way of life. That technology did not exist when the Second Amendment was adopted; indeed, rifling in the barrels of guns to improve the distance and accuracy of a shot was not widespread. Hunting and self-defense do not require that level of lethality. As for registration, the Second Amendment begins with “a well regulated militia.” If one was to be part of a militia with a gun, the authorities needed to know who owned what guns.

The call for second-amendment protections is gaining traction in local communities. It is all in response to gun-law proposals up for discussion in next year’s Virginia General Assembly.

We introduced you to a man in Gloucester County who started a petition for the county to be a second-amendment sanctuary. A resident in Virginia Beach started his own similar petition to push for the city to be another sanctuary.

The case is known as New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York.

A resolution declaring Amherst County a Second Amendment sanctuary county is targeted for a vote at the Amherst County Board of Supervisors' Dec. 3 meeting.

A crowd of a few hundred people showed up at the supervisors' Nov. 19 meeting to show support for the measure. If approved, Amherst would join Appomattox, Campbell and Pittsylvania counties, among others, as part of a statewide movement since the Nov. 5 election to push for Second Amendment gun rights. Nelson, Bedford and Franklin counties' governing boards will be voting on resolutions in December and an online petition recently formed seeking action from Lynchburg City Council.

When advocacy fails, Second Amendment supporters are then faced with the hard choice: Do they comply with laws that are clearly unconstitutional, or do they disobey them? Civil disobedience is a grave step to take: Those choosing that path are risking a criminal record by defying unjust laws – and make no mistake about it, laws like semi-auto bans are unjust on both the constitutional level, as well as based on the facts.

VA: Mischief-makers with an agenda promote ‘gun sanctuaries’ in Virginia

VIGILANTISM, WITH its alluring tingle of defiance and frontier justice, conjures a cinematic idea of American individualism. A similar impulse is at work among advocates of the so-called Second Amendment sanctuary movement, a trend in mainly rural counties declaring they will refuse to enforce restrictive state gun laws. Both are examples of individuals who, lacking legal authority, put themselves above the law, thereby promoting chaos.
