“The outcome of this incident is tragic,” Mason and May said in the statement. “Two teenagers are dead, and their loss is heartbreaking. The District Attorney’s Office and the Northglenn Police Department must follow the law and the evidence, however, and the evidence clearly shows that the resident of the home acted in self-defense when he returned fire after being fired upon multiple times. Therefore, the resident will not be arrested or charged in this incident.”
 

HI: Prosecution appeals ruling to dismiss gun charges against man

In an Aug. 17 ruling, 2nd Circuit Judge Kirstin Hamman granted a defense request to dismiss the two charges.

The ruling said Wilson “was carrying the firearm on the trail for self-defense purposes — conduct protected by the Second Amendment.”

Based on a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June, the right to carry and bear firearms for self-defense extends outside the home, according to the ruling.

The ruling said the charges that were dismissed infringed on Wilson’s “constitutional right to bear and carry a firearm for self-defense purposes.”

The prosecution argued that Second Amendment rights weren’t infringed on by a state requirement that people obtain a license before carrying a firearm in public.

House Judiciary Committee Republicans are ramping up their investigation of the FBI even before they know whether they'll control the chamber in the next Congress.

Jill Sanborn, former executive assistant director of the National Security Branch at the FBI during the Biden administration, has offered to sit for a transcribed interview with House Republicans, led by Rep. Jim Jordan (Ohio), to discuss the bureau's focus on “domestic violent extremism,” according to the letter obtained by The Early.

The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) has determined that a man who shot 32-year-old Oakland resident Ryann Schuman did so in self-defense.

No arrests have been made and no charges are pending at this time from the Sept. 27 shooting after which Schuman died.

In a prepared statement, State Patrol officials said authorities received a report at about 9 that night of a shooting at an apartment. The residence is in the 300 block of North Oakland Avenue, in Oakland.

Burt County Sheriff’s deputies and Oakland Police found Schuman, who was taken to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

No criminal charges will be filed in a fatal shooting from this summer in Allentown, after Lehigh County’s district attorney found the shooter acted in self defense.

Edwin Diaz-Rivera, 37, of Allentown, was shot in the body the night of July 9 in the 700 block of North 11th Street in the city, and later pronounced dead at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest in Salisbury Township, the Lehigh County coroner previously said.

A Niagara Falls pastor is suing in U.S. District Court in Buffalo to block a provision of New York’s new Concealed Carry Improvement Act (CCIA) that bars individuals from bringing firearms into places of worship.

Pastor Jimmie Hardaway Jr., of Trinity Baptist Church, 1366 South Ave., is being joined by Rev. Larry Boyd, of Open Praise Full Gospel Baptist Church, on Fillmore Avenue in Buffalo, and two pro-gun groups, Firearms Policy Coalition, of La Vegas, Nevada and Second Amendment Foundation, of Bellevue, Washington, in seeking a temporary restraining order to block enforcement of the places of worship restriction. The plaintiffs are also seeking to have the entire CCIA struck down as unconstitutional.

A Pasadena police representative told the City Council’s Public Safety Committee Wednesday that the Police Department’s newly-revised Concealed Carry Weapon permit process would require the applicants to undergo a psychological exam and an interview with the Chief of Police.

The updated policy was crafted in response to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June which struck down a New York state law that restricted who could obtain a permit to carry a gun in public.
 

Second Amendment Being Restored to Its Rightful Place, Thanks to Bruen Decision

The ruling in Bruen was twofold: 1) that New York State’s law requiring a citizen to show “proper cause” before being granted the privilege of carrying a concealed weapon was unconstitutional; and 2) that the right to carry a handgun in public is guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

That ruling has unleashed a tsunami of lawsuits by Second Amendment supporters, to the point where far-left news outlet CNN complained that the decision has “put gun control laws in jeopardy nationwide.”

If this U.S. Supreme Court ruling had been in place years ago, Petty said the National Rifle Association may not have pushed for constitutional amendments that tell courts to use strict scrutiny to evaluate gun laws. Three other states have passed similar amendments.

Rogers said the coalition sought to reach the strict scrutiny standard, but that it “won’t matter” after this summer’s U.S. Supreme Court decision.

“At the time that this was drafted over a decade ago, we believed that to be the gold standard, the highest level attainable for us.”
 

Court rulings wipe out gun laws in wake of Supreme Court decision

Federal judges have struck down gun restrictions in the months since a Supreme Court decision that expanded Second Amendment rights, and experts say there is likely more to come.

A judge in West Virginia this month cited the Supreme Court case when he struck down a federal law that required guns to have serial numbers. So did a judge in Texas who ruled last month that people under criminal indictments can still possess guns and a judge who this month tossed New York’s prohibitions on carrying concealed firearms in Times Square, summer camps, subways and theaters.
 

IA: Shooting survivors call for Iowans to reject pro-gun amendment

Two survivors of shootings encouraged Iowans Wednesday to vote against a proposed constitutional amendment restricting infringement on gun ownership and use.

Iowans are now able to vote early or by mail in the Nov. 8 elections. On the ballot is the proposed “Keep and Bear Arms Amendment,” which raises the legal standard to justify restrictions on firearms.

If a simple majority of Iowa voters vote “yes” for the measure, the state constitution will be amended. As voters start weighing in, the Iowans for Responsible Gun Laws, a coalition opposing the amendment held a news conference in Cedar Rapids asking Iowans to vote “no.”

Lee Williams, Florida Carry’s Communication Director, immediately jumped into action and contacted Ann Stone, the chairwoman of the Alachua County Republican Executive Committee and the event organizer. She told Mr. Williams that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement gave her a specific list of instructions and that banning guns is one of the requirements. When pressed further on that, she said “all I know is that he will not appear if there are guns there. It’s more his campaign. They’re not organizing the event, but they gave us the rules for having him on board, and that’s the rules they gave us.”

SCOTUS further deteriorated their public support by overturning a 1911 New York State case that requires a showing of “proper cause” to permit someone to carry a concealed weapon. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the majority opinion in New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn. v. Bruen, and he essentially determined the restriction to offend the Second Amendment.

The basis for Thomas’ opinion was that the law “prevents law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms” as authorized by the Second Amendment.

On the back of Iowa's ballot, a constitutional amendment, which has the power to change Iowa's gun laws.

Dave Funk, the President of the Iowa Firearms Coalition, says, "as time has gone on the legislator here in the state of Iowa expanded our rights of Iowans to carry weapons and own different type of firearms. It hasn't been a problem and one of the natural out gross of those is to want to protect those rights."
 

Preventing A Repeat Of The Firearms Shortage Nightmare

Supply lines are critical in any military operation, and when self-defense-firearm sales soared during the COVID-19 pandemic, gun makers were caught in a historic battle to meet that demand. Their efforts were nothing short of heroic—often quite creative—and Shooting Illustrated asked several experts how they did it and if more problems are looming.

The attack was on multiple fronts. Shipping-container shortages, stalls at ports, raw-material production throttled during the height of the pandemic and many more created a perfect storm at every manufacturer. The firearm industry wasn’t immune.

OR: Opposes Measure 114

Measure 114 will not decrease gun violence in Oregon schools and public places as purported by its advocates. It is an extremist anti-gun initiative designed to erode your right to bear arms, as guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment.

Existing gun laws ban convicted felons from having guns. Most violent crimes are committed by repeat offenders who acquire their weapons illegally.

Oregon already has universal background checks. 114 needlessly implements a longer wait period for a permit, and requires renewing that permit every five years. Concealed carry already requires its own separate permit issued by the sheriff. There are also round limits for hunting cartridges. The minimum firearm age is 18.
 

After Parkland shooting, Rubio vowed to support law raising minimum age to buy assault-style rifle. Now he opposes it.

Immediately after the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., promised to support a law raising the minimum legal age for buying assault-style rifles.

Now Rubio doesn’t support the idea, arguing it wouldn’t reduce gun violence.

Gun violence and what to do about it produced one of the sharpest exchanges between Rubio and his challenger, U.S. Rep. Val Demings, D-Orlando, in their debate Tuesday night in Lake Worth. It’s the only debate scheduled between the candidates before the Nov. 8 election.
