On May 28th, 2019, the Arizona Legislature adjourned sine die from the 2019 legislative session.

During this session, the House passed House Bill 2693 to improve the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their families by reducing arbitrary boundaries that leave them defenseless.

Unfortunately, the Senate failed to pass this legislation when it reached the floor.

The National Rifle Association’s already-toxic legal fight has gotten nastier, somehow, as the powerful gun-rights group has subpoenaed its ex-president.

Previously unreported court documents show the group served a subpoena to Oliver North late last month. It also subpoenaed Lance Olson and Daniel Boren, according to the documents; all three men are members of the NRA’s own board.

Here are the facts, as reported: The shooter legally purchased both handguns he used in this criminal attack.

Newsom’s take: “We just don’t need background checks on guns, we need background checks on every single ammunition purchase…”

In Commonwealth v. Hicks, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed with a defendant who argued that his Fourth Amendment rights were violated by law enforcement due to his legal exercise of his Second Amendment rights. Essentially, the court recognized that lawful possession of a firearm does not revoke a citizen’s other rights — specifically in this case an individual’s rights against unreasonable search and seizure.

‘We must act now’ is not a gun control policy

If you are the sort of person who feels compelled to demand new gun control laws after a mass shooting, you have several options. You can keep your recommendations vague, letting your audience fill in the blanks; push the policies you always push, regardless of whether they have anything to do with the latest outrage; or latch onto a detail of that crime, inflating its importance to support a seemingly germane solution.
 

MD: Second amendment

What Mr. Johnson doesn't understand is that the Second Amendment was really adopted as a defense against tyranny whether it be imposed through the force of a standing army or otherwise. The Second Amendment was not about protecting militias as he asserts, it was (and is) more properly about protecting the People (the militias are the People).

If the existence of standing armies was feared then, is it not logical to conclude that the Second Amendment is now all the more important with today's standing army being the instrument of the federal government?

Ed.: Second letter.

VA: US Army combat doctrine calls for smaller combat handgun magazines than civilians can purchase on the open market for “individual self-defense”

Think about this: US Army combat doctrine calls for smaller combat handgun magazines than civilians can purchase on the open market for “individual self-defense.”

It seems to me then that a non-standard thirty-round magazine for a .45 caliber pistol like the one used by the gunman in Virginia Beach on Friday has only one use: to maximize effectiveness for a mass shooter who wants to kill as many people as possible. Their sale and possession should be prohibited.

Gregory Gibson’s son was killed in 1992 during a shooting at Bard College at Simon’s Rock in Great Barrington, Mass. In 2014, after decades of work with gun violence prevention groups, Mr. Gibson bought a 9-millimeter Sig Sauer P320 and began learning to shoot. In the essay “A Gun Killed My Son. So Why Do I Want to Own One?” Mr. Gibson walks readers down his path to becoming a gun owner and his quest for clarity in the debate around guns in America.
 

On the Invention of “Assault Weapons” and Their Subsequent Ban

While many voices spoke out against the 1986 restrictions of fully automatic or select fire weapons, hostility toward that legislation paled in comparison to the ire evoked by the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB; the full official name of the legislation is the “Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act”). For me, this is the most personal of these laws; I came of age as a shooter under the AWB and was fully an adult when it sunset. More on that, later.

It's a legal maneuver fully supported by Ethan Nichols, with Ohio Students for Gun Legislation.

"We are pro-Second Amendment," Nichols said. "We are just pro-gun safety. We do support background checks, red flag laws, banning certain assault weapons; really, the things that actually endanger people."

Ed.: Sorry Ethan, those two things are mutually exclusive.
