Some of the theaters are predictable. It seems astonishing that New Jersey and California are still dreaming up new ways to limit the Second Amendment—and remarkable, too, that the courts have largely remained silent about their encroachments. Yet they most decidedly are dreaming up new ways to limit the Second Amendment.

In New Jersey, Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy has conceded that it is impossible to address violence “through the passage of a single, magic law,” so he has promised the passage of multiple magic laws instead.

An 18-year-old man fatally stabbed his mother's ex-boyfriend after the man kicked in the front door of a home and charged at the teen Wednesday morning, the Coos County Sheriff's Office said.

"No arrest have been made as the current information appears to be a matter of self-defense or defense of another person," Detective Jason Patterson wrote in a statement.

After spending four years in jail, waiting for a trial in the killing of her abusive husband, a Missouri woman walked free this week.

Ashley Hunter shot her husband to death in 2015 after, she said, he attacked her one night. A jury this week finally acquitted her on the grounds that she did so in self-defense.

She’s now hoping she can regain custody of her daughters, and help other women in abusive situations.

“I look at my mom, and she says, ‘You’re coming home,’” she said of hearing the verdict. “Finally, it hit me, and I just started bawling.”

A Florida Republican has introduced legislation that would legalize the concealed carry of firearms on college campuses in that state. The lawmaker has said that self-defense is a “fundamental right” and that the bill itself is “common sense.”

The legislation put forth by freshman representative Anthony Sabatini “would allow people with concealed weapons permits, who must be 21 and demonstrate competency with a firearm, to carry guns on any of Florida’s college campuses,” The Orlando Sentinel reported this month.

The shooting happened at about 3 p.m. Saturday at the Marathon gas station on Michigan Avenue, east of Middlebelt. Ali Salman, 34, also known as Ali Al Tameemi, died of a gunshot wound to the head following an argument over a parking space.

The lower courts have been split on those issues, but the Supreme Court remained obdurately silent—until Tuesday.

Almost of necessity, the result is likely to give lower courts what they have lacked—a constitutional test that can be applied to a wide variety of handgun restrictions. And as Winkler suggested, the new conservative majority seems likely to create a test that will invalidate many local laws—and may in fact shred the entire fabric of state and local gun regulation.
 

The Supreme Court’s Choice To Take On A Small Gun Case Could Have Big Implications

The Supreme Court is generally more likely to take on cases with broad legal implications or to resolve conflicting decisions from lower courts, he said. This case, however, seems to have a narrow focus and lacks conflict in the lower courts.

Volokh said the court’s ultimate ruling in this case will be telling: If the majority opinion sticks to the confines of the case it is likely to have limited effects. But the justices could also rule in a way that promotes broad changes in gun laws.

The case at hand, which the court is expected to hear as soon as October, relates to New York City restrictions on where licensed handgun owners can take their weapons.

One local gun retailer is seeing a lot of new business in light of four recent homicides in the area.

The people over at Reno Guns and Range say they sell about three guns on average a month, but the Saturday before Wilbur Martinez-Guzman was arrested, they sold 20 in one day.

“Anytime where there's an increase in violence in our community, people become a little more aware that they could be a victim,” says Jerome Hawkins, training and compliance manager.

The U.S. Supreme Court in their orders on Tuesday agreed to hear a challenge to New York City’s restrictive gun laws.

The case was brought by three NYC gun owners– Romolo Colantone, Efrain Alvarez, and Jose Anthony Irizarry– who argue the city’s “premises permit” scheme, which drastically restricts the ability to leave one’s premises with a firearm, is unconstitutional. The gun owners are supported by a number of gun rights and law enforcement lobby groups as well as attorneys general from at least 17 states.

This year, the Oregon Legislature will be a little different because Democrats hold supermajorities in both the House and Senate.

Leaders are expected to take up a wide variety of issues. One bill up for discussion focuses on your Second Amendment rights, Senate Bill 501.

Eric Gramer is the owner of Black Flag Armory in Medford. When speaking about S.B. 501, he said, “It’s just so ridiculous, I guess is the best word I can think of to use for it… it’s so over the top.”

House Democrats on Wednesday plan to introduce legislation that would raise the nationwide minimum age to buy assault-style rifles from 18 to 21.

The legislation, which is part of the Democrats' plan since taking back the House to address mass shootings, would prohibit anyone under the age of 21 from buying semi-automatic rifles. There would be exceptions made for active-duty military members and some police officers.

Across the country, most states permit anyone 18 years or older to purchase a semi-automatic rifle, even though federal law stipulates that the minimum age to buy a handgun is 21.

Pittsburgh officials won’t say what their legal strategy is for defending a raft of local gun control measures that are all but certain to draw a legal challenge if and when they’re adopted.

There are prior indications, though, that a 2008 U.S. Supreme Court decision will be invoked as Pittsburgh finds itself the latest litmus test in a recurring legal battle surrounding the limits of the Second Amendment or lack thereof.

On Tuesday, however, “The justices agreed to consider a petition backed by gun owners’ groups asking them to strike down New York City’s strict rules for carrying legally owned guns outside the home,” USA Today reports. “The rules do not allow gun owners to transport firearms outside city limits, even to practice ranges or second homes. Lower courts have upheld the city’s regulations.”

With N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol, the Court can start checking the massive resistance of many states and cities to this important constitutional right. And it can start instructing the lower courts, many of which have treated the right as second-class, how the law works in this area. For law-abiding gun owners and others who wish to exercise their fundamental right to armed self-defense – particularly those who live in places with high crime and woeful policing – this is most welcome news.

In his latest original video, National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke warns Americans of a new gun control measure that threatens citizens’ privacy and Second Amendment rights.

“As part of a sweeping set of gun control proposals that are currently under consideration in New York State,” Cooke begins, “a Brooklyn-based state representative named Kevin Parker has proposed a measure that, if enacted into law, would require anyone in New York applying for a handgun to hand over their social media username and password to the police.”

More than 2,000 people signed into the Senate Law and Justice Committee for hearings on 3-D printed guns, high-capacity magazines, domestic violence, as well as proposed training requirements for legally obtaining a pistol.

Outside of the Legislative Building, a silver Toyota blaring music and displaying a sign bearing words from the Second Amendment circled the World War I memorial for most of the day Monday.

Most of the people who testified, including state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, spoke for or against Senate Bill 5062, which prohibits possessing, manufacturing or distributing ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

Four Republicans have introduced legislation that would make the state's permit to carry, optional. Right now, you need to apply through your sheriff's office and take an authorized firearms training. Plus you need to renew it every five years.

Chad Walsh, owner of Dead-On Arms Indoor Shooting Range, said, "I do support constitutional carry. But I do feel that everybody should take some form of firearms class, before they start carrying. There's a lot that goes into it."

Another bill about firearms would allow permitted and trained school staff to carry firearms. The president of the Duluth Federation of Teachers said they oppose this idea.

The Oregon 2019 legislative session recently started and bills that are designed to further infringe on citizens’ Second Amendment rights were in the hopper before the gavel even fell. And the proposals put the state in the running for ending up with the title of being the most-restrictive state in the nation when it comes to gun rights.
