Washington voters approved much stricter gun laws in Tuesday’s midterm elections, which supporters hope will help reduce gun violence.

The initiative, approved by 60 percent of residents, raises the minimum age to purchase semiautomatic rifles (or assault rifles) to 21, from 18. It calls for enhanced background checks for these purchases and proof that the buyer has taken a training course. Washingtonians looking to buy the gun will also need to wait 10 days before obtaining it.

It does seem like polymer-frame pistols have taken over the self-defense market, with Glock, Smith & Wesson, SIG Sauer and others offering utilitarian variants for concealed carry. However, there’s still a stronghold of DA/SA handguns out there, joined most recently by the Springfield Armory XD-E, and many of these have replaceable grips. While polymer panels are prevalent, there’s a number of upgrades available that are quite easy to make.

Badalau and his wife and daughter were at home sleeping when the robbery took place.

“I think that when someone breaks into your home, your family is threatened. You should be able to take extreme measures. I think this is normal,” Badalau said on Tuesday, November 6, according to local Digi24.

Italy: Italy Loosens Gun Laws as Matteo Salvini Polishes His Tough Guy Image

“It’s tradition,” Mr. Salvini said of hunting and responsible gun ownership when he signed the pledge. “It’s culture.”

Italian culture, linked in the popular imagination with fine art, fashion and good food, does not typically conjure up the image of assault weapons. But in September, the government loosened gun laws, making it possible to own more guns like the AR-15, an assault rifle that has been used in numerous mass shootings in the United States, most recently a Pennsylvania synagogue where 11 were killed.

With Tuesday’s midterm election stirring up emotions, Dori opened up the phone lines to take reactions from listeners. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the issues that drew the most concern from listeners were gun control measure I-1639 and police oversight measure I-940, both of which are passing by a margin of about 20 percentage points in early voting results.

Union County became one of eight counties in Oregon to pass a controversial Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance on Tuesday.

The ballot measure passed with 58.73 percent of the vote.

The ordinance expands the definition of firearms and prohibits the enforcement of laws that regulate the manufacture, sale and possession in Union County. It will require the sheriff to review any state or federal laws affecting firearms or firearms accessories and determine whether or not they are constitutional.

Well, the 2018 midterm elections are in the books. In some ways, they went very well – the GOP took out four Democrats who voted against Donald Trump’s pro-Second Amendment judicial nominees, while confirming anti-Second Amendment judges selected by Barack Obama. In governor’s races, some previously pro-Second Amendment governorships went the other way due to retirements, and the loss of Scott Walker is a devastating blow in the Badger State.

It would be an understatement to say that gun debate partisans have different views about the proper relationship between gun rights and regulation. From a scholarly perspective, those differences are typically refracted through the lenses of constitutional law, public health, political science, and—with increasing precision and clarity—history and sociology. When it comes to regulatory law, however, the interdisciplinary conversation has barely begun.

Advancing a suit by the National Rifle Association, a federal judge refused Tuesday to toss claims that New York banks and insurers are using selective enforcement to harm the group’s longstanding corporate relationships.

Citing the multiple critical statements against the NRA that have been made over the last year by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state’s Department of Financial Services, U.S. District Judge Thomas McAvoy ruled that the NRA has enough to bring its free-speech claims to trial.

After the shooting massacre at a high school in Parkland, Fla., survivors found themselves taking on the National Rifle Association as they crisscrossed the country rallying young adults to register and vote against candidates opposed to gun control.

On Tuesday, the Parkland students got a dose of political reality.

While their registration drives enrolled thousands of younger votes, the students were unable to turn key races in their home state. Ron DeSantis was elected governor and Rick Scott was leading the vote for United States senator. Both Republicans were endorsed by the National Rifle Association.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood. —JAMES MADISON
