The International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) says it is experiencing an "unpleasant situation" as social networking site Facebook has deleted the global body's page from its platform without any intimation. This has prompted the ISSF to start a campaign '#unblock_ISSF_facebook'.

Besides Twitter and Instagram, shooters from across the world rely on the ISSF Facebook page for updates from the sport's governing body. The page was created on January 14, 2010. "An unpleasant situation happened yesterday, and Facebook has deleted the ISSF page from the social network without reason or warning," shooting's apex body said in a statement on Thursday.

A Gloversville man was acquitted Friday in a Fulton County Court jury trial of two felonies in a case in which a man was stabbed seven times.

Justin R. Hill, 32, of 108 Yale St., was found innocent in a week-long trial before Judge Polly A. Hoye of felony counts of second-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Defense attorney Kyle Davis said Friday that the jury felt his client was trying to defend himself in the Oct. 7, 2019 stabbing incident.

“The jury decided it was self-defense,” he said.

Many states began to see the increase in sales around march—Texas alone requested over two hundred thousand firearm background checks during the start of the coronavirus.

”In early March we started to see a little bit of an uptick and then it was either the second or third week in March, kind of the quick way I’ve been saying it to folks is the entire industry got bought," said Levi Garrett, Co-owner to Bliss gun shop.

I met Beth Alcazar at SHOT Show 2017. The following month, I saw her again at a concealed carry fashion show I was emceeing in Cleveland. And I’ve seen her at every GPRC since 2017 and even in Washington DC at a DC Project event. That isn’t just how she’s everywhere. She writes a blog for the USCCA called Pacifiers & Peacemakers, and she teaches the teachers for the USCCA as well. She’s also a board member of BamaCarry. She’s one of the busiest women in the gun community and I was able to catch up with her in Birmingham, AL, during the RSWC Southern Tour 2020. She did start off with some Southern Hospitality and a number of gifts from local businesses and trivia of Alabama.
 

NY: FPC and SAF Challenge New York City Handgun Carry Ban

The State of New York’s laws make it a crime for a law-abiding individual to carry a loaded handgun outside of the home unless they have been issued a license to carry a handgun. Further, State law and City rules prevent individuals from obtaining a license because of further unconstitutional requirements, such as the “proper cause” requirement, among others. Working together, the State and City regulations amount to a total ban on carry for the average law-abiding period.

Muehlberger is now part of a federal lawsuit brought forward by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is suing the Trump administration to crack down on these unregulated do-it-yourself kits, secured with no background check and providing the buyer all the parts needed to assemble a lethal firearm at home.

"Anyone can make them, anyone can carry them, anyone can fire them," Becerra said.

While California requires 'ghost gun' owners to apply for a serial number, most states do not.

This is the age of Covid. You meet a woman on a dating site. You agree to meet in the public area of her apartment complex late a night. You’re walking to her apartment when two men come out of the darkness. One of them has a rifle, and he points the gun at you. They demand your valuables.

You’re armed. You present your concealed firearm and shoot the armed attacker several times. Your gun jams, and you run away. You drive to a nearby gas station and call the police. The police find your attacker, and his accomplice, at the scene. They also find a toy rifle on the ground.
 

MT: Montana Votes For Self-Defense by Approving LR-130

Yesterday, November 5th, LR-130 passed to ensure that your free exercise of the right to self-defense is protected equally across the whole state. For too long, local anti-gun bureaucrats have refused to recognize your freedom by instituting concealed carry restrictions beyond state law. Time and again, they usurp your rights in their quest to diminish your freedoms. LR-130 was put to the voters to end these constant obstructions.

The opposition, with backing from out-of-state interests, launched a campaign of misinformation. Montanans saw through their rhetoric and rightfully sided in favor of the Second Amendment when they went to the polls.

Rogue elements of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are continuing their assault on certain types of commonly-owned semi-automatic pistols. According to the law firm Wiley, ATF has developed a new interpretation of “handgun” that threatens to curtail the supply of foreign-manufactured pistols and could put many law-abiding gun owners in legal jeopardy.

Biggest Loser: Establishment Media; Can It Ever Be Trusted Again?

The mainstream “establishment” media—which has rarely been sympathetic to gun owners or kind to the Second Amendment—lost any semblance of credibility with conservatives and especially gun owners with its coverage of the presidential election, according to social media reactions to a question posed 36 hours after the polls closed Nov. 3.

That loss is likely permanent. Heading into the weekend, media integrity seemed to be sliding even farther as major networks cut away from President Donald Trump’s news conference, leaving many people even more convinced of a strong bias against the president that has existed since his stunning 2016 defeat of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Cawthorn cruised to victory in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, which Democrats hoped would be more competitive following a court-ordered remapping that united all of Buncombe County with all of the state’s 16 westernmost counties and part of Rutherford County. He captured 54.5% of the vote, 12 percentage points and more than 50,000 votes ahead of Democratic opponent Moe Davis.

Even as the pandemic has plunged Washington into its worst recession in a generation, one local industry is experiencing a boom: gun sellers. DC’s Metropolitan Police Department is on pace to register 25 percent more firearms in 2020 than it did the prior year. Shawn Poulin, owner of NOVA Armory, a gun store in Arlington, says that from the time the Covid crisis started to appear until early summer, sales quadrupled. And a region-wide run on ammunition has prompted another local dealer to limit the sale of bullets at its range to one box per customer. “Ammunition is like toilet paper,” Poulin says. People are stocking up.

The shelves are nearly bare at Gary’s Gun Shop in Sioux Falls.

And as you scour the store for a case of bullets to buy, you’ll likely hear someone comment how hard it is to find ammunition right now.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find ammo in Sioux Falls at all.

Several stores in the city have reported increased sales in ammunition and firearms in 2020, depleting an already short supply during the coronavirus pandemic.

The concept of state preemption — that is, a statute reserving all authority for setting gun laws in the hands of the legislature — is going to be tested in a Washington State courtroom, thanks to a unanimous ruling by an Appeals Court panel.

The appeals court reversed and remanded a lower court decision to dismiss a 2018 lawsuit challenging a Seattle ordinance requiring firearms owners in the city to lock up their guns when not in use.

Gun sales are on the rise throughout the country and Tobey's Pawn Shop has seen the same increase at its stores during 2020.

"One of my shops, we're about 200 percent above last year, another shop we're about 250 percent of last year, year over year," said Tobey Bouch, the owner of Tobey's Pawn Shop, said. "That's throughout the course of the year. It's not just one thing, it's everything kind of amplifying, it's been snowballing and snowballing."
 

Lessons Learned From the 2020 Election

As the dust fades from this election, some states are too close to call, and it looks like there will be litigation in those states. But it is not too late to see what Second Amendment supporters can learn from the results that are available, with more lessons to come from the litigated election contests.

What we do know: The Senate seems to be remaining in pro-Second Amendment hands, pending two runoff races in Georgia that will require a lot of work (plus a potential recount in Michigan) to keep out of the hands of anti-Second Amendment extremists, and the House of Representatives and state legislatures saw some improvement in a pro-Second Amendment direction.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws. — AYN RAND
