Although the concept of using improvised weapons for personal protection is far from new, it has taken on a whole new meaning during the past few years. After the tragic events of September 11th and incidents like the shootings at Columbine and Virginia Tech, the carry of purpose-designed weapons has become much more restricted and the number of “nonpermissive” environments — where weapons are totally forbidden — has increased tremendously.

A jury has acquitted a 27-year-old man of murder, concluding that he acted in self-defense when he killed another man following an hourslong argument in Midvale last year.

Shortly after moving from Alabama to Utah for work at Kennecott Copper Mine, Lorenzo Parker was staying at a Motel 6 when he got into a fight with Tyler Williams, 30, on the evening of June 26, 2021. Police say the initial fight ended with Parker being punched but started up again several hours later when Williams came back with others.

Keyser also says in the video that he acted in self-defense when he aimed a firearm at a fast-approaching vehicle at the Molalla Buckeroo.

In addition to Keyser, Molalla City Councilor Eric Vermillion was also present at the time.

Keyser says in the video that both he and Vermillion felt threatened and that’s why Keyser took action.

Keyser claims he saw a car coming down a side ramp and into the arena, which was closed due to animals being housed there, then proceeded toward him and Vermillion.

“I heard the crew that was watching the upper gate scream, 'Stop that car!' I put my hands up and yelled 'stop' and that vehicle accelerated to hit me,” Keyser said.

Two CCW holders allied with Second Amendment groups filed a federal lawsuit on Tuesday against the state of New York over a new anti-gun initiative that essentially bans lawful carry almost everywhere.

Brett Christian and John Boron, joined by the Second Amendment Foundation and Firearms Policy Coalition, are named as plaintiffs in a suit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York. Named as defendants are Kevin Bruen, superintendent of the New York State Police, and John J. Flynn, Erie County District Attorney.
 

WI: Man who 'shot first' during Kenosha riot charged with 7 felonies

During the Kenosha riot on August 20, 2020, Joshua Ziminski fired a "warning shot" before Kyle Rittenhouse shot three men in self-defense. Two of those men died, and Rittenhouse was exonerated on all charges. Ziminski, whose trial in that matter was delayed for months, has now been charged with seven felonies.

A recent article from Newsweek alleged that Rittenhouse "is not a hero," and that he was "playing cop" when shots were fired during the fiery riots that destroyed property, businesses, and shut down the city. Now it turns out that one of the men who fired that night has gone on to continue his criminal involvement.

With muggings skyrocketing in New York City, victims who fight back could be exposed to legal consequences under the city’s “murky” self-defense laws, according to experts.

One recent case prompted Curtis Sliwa, a longtime public safety advocate who has led the Guardian Angels volunteer group for decades, to call on the Empire State to follow Florida’s example and implement a “stand your ground” law to enhance a citizen’s right to self-defense.

A would-be robber died over the weekend after demanding cash from two men and waving “an imitation firearm,” according to the NYPD.
 

NY: Pro-2A Groups Challenge New York’s New Concealed Carry Law: ‘As Unconstitutional As Old One’

Two pro-Second Amendment groups are challenging New York’s newly-enacted restrictions on carrying concealed firearms, a measure they say is worse than the one invalidated by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this year.

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), along with the Firearms Policy Coalition and two private citizens, on Tuesday filed a federal lawsuit targeting Senate Bill S51001, the Empire State’s replacement of a century-old concealed carry statue, which was declared unlawful by the nation’s highest court.
 

Can Truckers Carry Guns Across State Lines?

Regarding federal or state laws, nothing prevents a trucker from carrying a firearm on their commercial truck, provided they keep their documents up to date and always carry their license. This is due to the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act the House of Representatives signed in 2017. Each state has strict laws, though, that must be adhered to.

For example, you may have to complete a certification course, be of legal age, and pass a background check before obtaining a concealed weapon license. Other states with similar requirements generally accept an out-of-state one if you’re pulled over and the weapon is found. Places like Illinois won’t honor a license from anywhere else. It must be issued by its own government.
 

Courts Rule for ATF “Final Rule” Using Commercial Sale Loophole

The Division 80 case was not as strong as the North Dakota case, primarily because Division 80 did not exist as an entity before the “Final Rule” was proposed. Thus it was more difficult for Division 80 to provide evidence of irreparable harm because it only had existed for less than a year.

The very reason for the existence of Division 80, that of individuals to build their own firearms outside of governmental control, made the production of evidence of sales and which states had sales self-defeating.

The Court simply refused to hear any evidence which showed the ability to make a firearm free of government interference as a part of the Second Amendment.
 

NY: The First Amendment vs. New York’s Second Amendment restrictions

All this will likely mean when all is said and done — after all court challenges are heard — is that even if gun applicants can be required to provide a list of their former and current social media accounts from the past three years, only individuals who draft posts that are likely to incite illegal action or communicate a true threat can constitutionally be denied a gun license by New York.

The court in Bruen went to great pains to assert that the rights recognized in the Second Amendment are equally as important as the rights recognized in the First. The reverse is also true; protection, once granted to speech by the First Amendment, cannot later be withdrawn by the Second.
 

AK: Misleading Attack on Murkowski’s Gun Vote

After a spate of mass shootings, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska was one of 15 Republicans who voted in June for a gun bill that provides money for states that have or want to enact red-flag laws to temporarily remove firearms from people deemed to be a danger to themselves or others. States that do not have red-flag laws can use their funding for other programs, such as mental health and drug courts.

An ad from one of Murkowski’s challengers, Republican Kelly Tshibaka, cites that vote to misleadingly claim that Murkowski “voted for red-flag laws to restrict your Second Amendment rights and subject you to federal criminal investigation.” But the ad is running in Alaska, which does not have a red-flag law and is not required to adopt one.

In response to Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) objecting, Sen. Cruz said:

“What we just saw reveals that the Democrats have one objective when a mass murder happens, and that is to take away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. That is always, always, always their solution. Never mind that it doesn’t work. … If another lunatic attacks a school and there’s not a police officer at the front door to stop it, remember right now. Remember this moment when the Democrats said, ‘No, we will not protect our kids.’”

Confusion surrounding New York gun laws has disrupted historical reenactments across the state, and despite Gov. Kathy Hochul's office insisting the law does not prevent them from taking place, lingering questions have prompted organizers of annual events to cancel.

In the Allegany County village of Angelica, a Civil War reenactment weekend scheduled for Sept. 23-25 was canceled after consulting local law enforcement about the new restrictions, and how they would prevent the use of weapons in historical events.

Associated Press Laments 'Too Few' Uses of Rights-Violating 'Red Flag' Laws

On September 2, the AP released a piece by Bernard Condon purportedly covering an “AP analysis” and lamenting the fact that extrajudicial, gun-grabbing, so-called “Red Flag” statutes “get little use, as shootings, gun deaths, soar.”

Of course, Condon didn’t bother to discuss the extrajudicial nature of the gun-grabs, nor did he correctly label them as the gun-grabs that they are, but his lassitude didn’t stop MSN from propagating his piece, nor did it stop major television outlets such as ABC national, ABC 7 in Chicago, and KSL in Utah, from spreading the prefabricated and tilted narrative.

After months of controversy Big Daddy Guns would not be opening a location at The Deck in Morgantown. However, this won’t be the end of the company’s West Virginia journey.

Co-founder of Big Daddy, Sherrie McKnight and Public Relations Coordinator Nicholas Lahera flew up to West Virginia to talk with the community and the media about the future of Big Daddy in Morgantown.

This came after Hardy World LLC. released a statement saying they terminated their lease with Big Daddy.

“To be clear, we wanted to execute our end of the legal contract. When they decided not to give us the keys, we had no other option. Other than to terminate the lease. So, it was mutual in that regard,” Lahera explained.
 

Josh Hawley blasts credit card companies for threatening Second Amendment rights

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) blasted a recent move by major credit card companies to isolate and track gun purchases through the use of a special code.

Hawley sent a letter Tuesday to the CEOs of Visa, Mastercard, and American Express, writing he was concerned with their “decision to separately categorize gun-related purchases from other retail transactions.”

“The big three credit card companies say they will start tracking gun purchases, making it easier to track gun owners — and to stop sales,” Hawley tweeted about his letter. “Big threat to Second Amendment rights. I want to know from the corporations why they capitulated to the anti-2A lobby.”

Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik released a letter on Wednesday questioning the move to change a purchasing code that could make it easier for authorities to track gun purchases.

The change, made by an international regulatory body earlier this year, has been embraced by Democrats and supporters of stricter gun laws. But Republicans, as well as gun dealers and owners, have called the change an erosion of rights and privacy.

“I am adamantly opposed to this attempt to track the information of law-abiding gun owners and am calling out this attempt to infringe on our Constitutional, Second Amendment rights,” Stefanik said in a statement.

Harris County will spend $1.1 million to hold eight gun buyback events, distributing up to 4,000 gift cards to gun owners who voluntarily surrender their firearms.

A city-hosted July buyback event in Houston’s Third Ward had a massive turnout with a line of cars stretching two miles.

Commissioners Court approved the plan Tuesday, using an allocation from the county's FLEX fund, which is made up of taxpayer money from the general fund made available by the use of federal American Rescue Plan Act funding for other expenses.
 

LA: Gun advocates fight for bump stocks in latest court hearing

A federal appeals court was told Tuesday that there is no basis in federal law for a Trump administration ban on bump stocks — devices that enable a shooter to fire multiple rounds from semi-automatic weapons with a single trigger pull.

The ban was instituted after a sniper using bump stock-equipped weapons massacred dozens in Las Vegas in 2017. Gun rights advocates are challenging it in multiple federal courts.

At issue is not the Second Amendment but whether bump stocks qualify as illegal “machine guns” under federal law. The rule banning the devices issued by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said that they — a reversal, attorneys said, of a position held prior to the Las Vegas killings.
