SAF scores another win for concealed carry

"The Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation today scored another victory for concealed carry when the entire Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a December ruling by a three-judge panel that forces Illinois to adopt a concealed carry statute."

"The SAF case, known as Moore v. Madigan, was actually decided in December with Judge Richard Posner writing the majority opinion. In the process, the judge affirmed that the right to bear arms exists outside the home. That ruling now stands, leaving the Illinois legislature no alternative but to write a statute that enables citizens to carry outside the home, without a lot of red tape, for their personal protection. ..." ...

"Earlier today, the New Jersey Assembly passed 22 laws limiting its citizens’ Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. In the post-Newtown rush to civilian disarmament, the Garden State follows New York’s lead. And Colorado. Connecticut will soon pass similar legislation. California and other Democrat-controlled states are set to 'tighten' their already unconstitutional firearms regulations. Meanwhile, Southern and Western states are moving in the opposite direction. Utah is set to join Vermont, Alaska, Arizona and Wyoming as a 'Constitutional carry' state (no permit required to carry a firearm). We’re seeing the creation of two Americas: slave states and free states . . ." ...

"How much time did New Jersey reps have to read the 22 civilian disarmament bills passed a 3am this morning? I hope they had more time than New York politicians; they had all of 20 minutes to read the SAFE Act ... Speaking of which . . . 'With less than a month before provisions of New York’s gun law go into effect, mental health professionals are waiting to learn the exact procedure for reporting people they deem likely to seriously injure themselves or others,' ..."

"The outrage over gun violence continues to be debated in our country. However, some misguided individuals feel that background checks, gun bans, and ammunition clip bans, as well as a demonizing of anybody who has a different opinion than their own, will solve the problem of gun violence. Case in point is Alma Rutgers' latest column ... which demonizes Wayne LaPierre, and the NRA, by saying, 'we'll not let the NRA's hellish dystopian vision of America, riddled with guns, prevail.'" ...

"When Blake Hiatt sent in his This Is My Rifle photo, he got plenty of questions about the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle he posed with. So ... here are his impressions of the gun."

"WW1 saw the introduction of the machine gun, the 1911 pistol and the venerable 1903 Springfield. The 1903 Springfield, developed to be used by front line troops, had an overall length of 44″ (about 68″ with bayonet). It was hardly an ideal weapon for trench warfare, no matter how hard hitting the 30-06 cartridge may be. Imagine ... jumping into a German trench toting a rifle that’s around 5.5′ long. Unwieldy for hand-to-hand combat, to say the least. On top that, the Springfield only held 5 rounds, which were loaded via a stripper clip." ...

"I’ve written a couple of short pieces about God and the Second Amendment since my post of Feb. 11 , and have trashed both. This is my third go."

"It’s a touchy topic. Incendiary, even. And that counsels taking care."

"To refresh: My earlier post noted my puzzlement about a commentary published in the Sunday Ideas section of Jan. 31 referring to Americans' 'God-given right' to have guns."

"I didn’t question the right. The Second Amendment, despite multiple interpretations over more than two centuries, does plainly confer a right to 'keep and bear arms.' I questioned the reference to 'God-given,' because God isn’t cited in the Second Amendment – or in the entire Constitution ... except in the most glancing way." ...

"Reddit is quickly becoming a breeding ground for some fashion forward gun rights advocacy ideas in these troubled times. One idea that’s taken off is Operation Mountain Standard. The idea is to flood the state of Colorado with 30-round magazines before the (expected) magazine capacity limit takes effect. Gabe Suarez got this ball started by selling mag bundles only to Centennial Staters. But that was only one company and they quickly ran out of inventory. The Reddit ploy draws on a bigger resource and is pretty cool . . ." ...
