SC: South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson says mandates from cities and municipals requiring face masks are legal.

Some people have asked if the ordinance violates the constitutional right to carry a gun if you're wearing a mask.

"We can find no prohibition on the carrying of a firearm if you're lawfully allowed to do so under the CWP law. Also you have a Second Amendment right and a state law that allows you to have a CWP which trumps a city ordinance so there's no conflict there. This ordinance doesn't prohibit you from carrying a firearm. This mandates that you wear a facial covering or mask in certain businesses. There is no constitutional crisis there with the Second Amendment and if there was, I'd promise you I would jump into it and I would defend anyone's right to be able to lawfully carry a gun."

Under normal circumstances, it is against the law to carry a gun while wearing a mask. However, that law is being suspended until February 2021.

The Nash County sheriff’s office has been getting many calls lately from people wondering what the rules are.

According to the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office, if you have a valid concealed carry handgun permit, it is legal to carry a concealed handgun while wearing a mask, so long as you're wearing the mask to protect yourself or others from COVID-19.

The National Rifle Association is pleased to inform law-abiding Indiana gun owners that, beginning July 1, NRA-backed changes to existing law will go into effect allowing state residents to obtain a 5-year license to carry a handgun free of charge.

“Removing barriers so that all law-abiding Hoosiers can carry a firearm for self-defense is a significant victory,” said John Weber, NRA state director for Indiana. “Every law-abiding citizen, regardless of race, color, creed or tax bracket, should have access to the right of self-defense and no government should charge for the right to exercise a fundamental freedom”

LaKasha Robbins is a relatively new shooter and gun owner. She’s had a license for several years, but things really started moving when she and some other female 2A activists in Massachusetts, started Mass Women Gun Owners (MWGO). She’s got some computer experience and organization skills, so she volunteered to help get materials and information out. She and the others started the group just to exchange ideas about self-defense, the woman’s right to protection, and how to figure out what carry methods work well for women. Even though she’s isn’t fond of public speaking, she’s testified in DC and Boston.

The Primary Arms SLx MD-25 should be in the argument for topping off your AR.
We had the privilege of taking Primary Arms SLx MD-25 to the range and it got us thinking: What features do you look for in your optics?

Believe it or not, pretty much everything we could come up with is covered by this SLx microdot. It's got it all, plus a respectable price tag at $169.99.

We thought you should know about the optic, and we're more than willing to share some specs while pointing out the best features.

Crook County was declared a Second Amendment Sanctuary last week on the passing of a symbolic resolution by the county commissioners.

Resolution 2020-19 recognizes that the Constitution of the United States of America states, “The right of citizens to bear arms in the defense of themselves and the state shall not be denied” in Article 1 and further recognizes that the Second Amendment guarantees the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.

This Republican Senator Calls Three Black Men Peacefully Carrying Long Guns 'Mob Rule'

Carrying long guns in public is legal in Georgia, by the way (with exceptions for a few places like courts and schools). Fox does not actually accuse any of these men of breaking any laws. But they clearly intend viewers to see these men as a threat—and not just because they have put up barricades and hope to shut out the police, but because they're bearing arms. By contrast, when a predominantly white group of protesters showed up at Michigan's capitol in April to protest the state's COVID-19 rules, Fox's coverage was reasonably neutral and factual, giving voice to critics but pointing out that guns were legally allowed in the state Capitol building.

City council unanimously adopted an ordinance that bans firearms on city property at the public hearing held on Saturday.

The ordinance was made possible by a new state law adopted during the Virginia General Assembly’s 2020 session that permits localities to regulate firearms in public spaces. The ordinance and state law will both go into effect on July 1. Alexandria is the first jurisdiction in Virginia to adopt such an ordinance under the new law, according to a city news release.
 

Lone Republican Senator Introduces Bill to Roll Back Police Liability Shield

The Indiana Republican just introduced the “Reforming Qualified Immunity Act,” a bill that would reduce the liability shield for all government employees, not just police officers, back to the original standard, which only protected them in a narrowly-defined set of cases. The current “qualified immunity” standard, created via judicial decree, makes it extremely difficult to sue any government official who violates your constitutional rights, unless there is an exactly identical case available as precedent.

I was pleased to read that Gary Marbut attended one of the Black Lives Matter protests at the courthouse. Now, as an “expert” on the Second Amendment, I hope he can educate Henry Fowler on the meaning of that amendment. In his June 8 letter to the Missoulian, Mr. Fowler emphasized that “Police killings of unarmed blacks accounted for approximately 0.6% of homicides of blacks.” Although he didn’t write this in his letter, this seems to suggest he is saying that is acceptable for police to kill armed Black people.

The National African American Gun Association, which began in 2015 with a single chapter in Atlanta, now comprises more than 100 chapters with 40,000 members — 10,000 of whom joined within the past five months.

Pennsylvania is one step closer to joining the growing list of states which are protecting Second Amendment rights when a state of emergency is declared.

On Wednesday, June 24, the House passed House Bill 1747 by Rep. Matthew Dowling on a vote of 127 to 74. The bill prevents the Governor from suspending or limiting the sale, dispensing or transportation of firearms during a declared emergency. It would also remove the carry prohibitions that exist with exemptions.

During the regular legislative session, four bills supporting our Second Amendment rights were led through the legislature by Republican authors. Still, they enjoyed support from members of both parties throughout the legislative process. For the first time in his tenure, Gov. John Bel Edwards joined these legislators and established a public position on specific Second Amendment legislation by signing these four pro-2A bills.
