“Just give up a little bit of your rights, and you’ll make the rest of us feel safer” has been the motto of the gun control movement since day one. Now that same logic, (if you want to equate emotion of feeling safe as logic) is being applied to public health as a whole, and people aren’t liking what they’re hearing.

Stephen Kruiser once said that firearms are the gateway drug to freedom. In this case, however, firearms ownership is the canary in the coal mine. What big government and runaway political corruption have been doing to our freedoms under the Second Amendment, they’re now doing to every other civil right as well.

Welcome to the party, everyone. Don’t say we never tried to warn you.

Police say a man who lives in the home told them he was attacked by a visitor, a friend of his roommate who had arrived there drunk.

Police say the visitor initially was arguing with the man’s fiancé.

They say the man became involved in the dispute and told them that the visitor attacked him.

He told officers that he was armed with a gun at the time and initially fired warning shots toward the ground.

However, the man says the visitor still came at him, and, during a fight, he fired a shot, hitting the visitor in the leg.
 

AZ: CCW or Not? What are the advantages to having a Concealed Carry Permit in Arizona?

Arizona currently has a population of around 7.4 million residents. Only 391,000 Arizona State concealed carry permits have been issued. Now I find that kind of puzzling because we are a “shall issue” permit state, so there’s only a few things that would prevent you from getting your permit. We also honor all 50 states, meaning anyone from any state can come here and get an Arizona CWP (Concealed Weapon Permit), for example taking your course while on a short visit to Arizona.

The Ohio Senate has passed Knife Rights’ Knife Law Preemption bill, SB 156, by a vote of 23-7. It now moves to the House where a companion bill, HB 243, is awaiting a vote by the House Government Oversight Committee, expected shortly.

SB 156 Sponsor Senator Kristina Roegner said, “Ohioans carrying knives, whether for work or self-defense, face a confusing and impossible to follow patchwork of local ordinances. Currently, what is legal to carry and possess in one town may be a serious crime to possess in another. Senate Bill 156 is criminal justice reform legislation that seeks to save law-abiding citizens from entrapment while traveling throughout the state.”
 

NY: What the Supreme Court Won’t do for Our Right to Bear Arms

State legislators denied the ordinary person the right to bear arms in New York. That decision was upheld in state and lower courts. In New York City, the “privilege” to defend yourself with a firearm in public is only given to a select few. You need not apply unless you are an ex-law enforcement officer, a judge, a politician, or an elite celebrity. That privilege is paid for with political power or campaign donations. Remember that the bill of rights is designed to limit the actions of the government. Big government politicians turned that on its head so they could sell our rights back to a select few of us at exorbitant prices.

Harrisburg, Pa., residents have standing to challenge the city’s gun regulations despite never having the laws enforced against them, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court said.

The regulations prohibit discharging a weapon in the city and possessing a gun in city parks. They also make it unlawful for an unaccompanied minor to possess a firearm outside of their home and require citizens to report lost or stolen guns within 48 hours.

Three citizens and Firearm Owners Against Crime claimed the regulations violate their Second Amendment right to possess guns. Although the city regularly enforces the ordinances, it argued that the plaintiffs lacked ...

Currently, there are more than a dozen legislative items dealing with gun rights and 10 out of the 13 bills would include more gun restrictions and are championed by Democrats.

Among these proposals are a ban of “assault weapons,” universal background checks for guns and ammo, repealing stand your ground laws and prohibiting those convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors from owning a gun. Democrats in the Legislature also proposing repealing a ban on record keeping of firearms and firearms owners.
 

IL: Illinois Supreme Court strikes down Cook County tax on guns as unconstitutional

“The majority’s analysis is problematic because it leaves space for a municipality to enact a future tax — singling out guns and ammunition sales — that is more narrowly tailored to the purpose of ameliorating gun violence,” Michael Burke wrote.

He argued the majority opinion is leading the county “down a road of futility,” citing Article 1, Section 22 of the state constitution, which reads: “Subject only to the police power, the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Judge Cynthia Bashant of the United States District Court for the Southern District of California denied a preliminary injunction to halt the upcoming “ghost gun” ban in the city of San Diego on Wednesday, removing the last hurdle before the ban is to go into effect on Saturday.

The Eliminate Non-serialized Untraceable Firearm, or ENUF, Ordinance, will “prohibit the possession, purchase, sale, receipt, and transportation of non-serialized, unfinished frames and unfinished receivers, and non-serialized firearms within the City of San Diego.”
 

VA: Dominion Energy Betrays Gun Owners with Dark Monies!

Apparently, in concert with the McAuliffe campaign, Dominion Energy is using so-called dark money to suppress gun owner turnout! No, I’m Not Kidding.

Dominion Energy has given $200,000 to the Accountability Virginia PAC (AVP), run by a liberal consulting group with ties to ActBlue (a Democratic fundraiser) that came into existence only in July. The Accountability Virginia PAC has spent tens of thousands of dollars running ads in conservative parts of the state to make gun owners question voting for Glen Youngkin.
 

NV: Heller tacks right on guns in attempt to distinguish himself from Lombardo

Heller stressed his support for a policy known as “constitutional carry,” the ability to concealed carry weapons without a permit, and for no limits on high-capacity magazines. Both policies stand in stark contrast to Lombardo’s more moderate stances discussed in the same forum almost four months prior.

During the June forum, the sheriff shared his support of universal background checks and limits on certain high-capacity magazines. Both Heller and Lombardo spoke against several gun control measures passed during the last legislative sessions, including the state’s ‘Red Flag’ law and a measure banning so-called “ghost guns,” which are homemade firearms without serial numbers.

Bruce and Aimee Abington were never politically active. Hosting a pro-Second Amendment, anti-mask rally was the last thing the couple ever imagined.

The Abingtons are the co-founders of the Freedom Alliance and the driving force behind the Rally for Freedom event scheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at Andalusia's Community Center. And while the Second Amendment will be defended and COVID-19 safety protocols will be questioned, the rally is a three-hour tour of where much of the modern conservative movement has drifted over the past decade.

The team is currently anticipating their third season since it began in 2019. Competitions in 2020 were cancelled due to the pandemic. McGraw had a successful 2021 season placing third in their Conference.
 

Why Aren't Texas Abortion Providers Actively Resisting S.B. 8?

The group sees S.B. 8 as the type of law that could be used to violate gun rights:

FPC is interested in this case because the ap-proach used by Texas to avoid pre-enforcement re-view of its restriction on abortion and its delegation of enforcement to private litigants could just as easily be used by other States to restrict First and Second Amendment rights or, indeed, virtually any settled or debated constitutional right. FPC takes no position on whether abortion should be protected by the Con-stitution but believes that the judicial review of re-strictions on established constitutional rights, espe-cially those protected under this Court's cases, cannot be circumvented in the manner used by Texas.

Igor Volsky, executive director at Guns Down America, said that the Biden administration "has simply not done enough" when it comes to gun control issues.

"The weapons we have today are just deadlier and more dangerous than what we had 15, 20 years ago, and that I think needs to change. And frankly, the president, to come back to him, needs to lead that charge because that's what he promised," Volsky said Thursday during an interview on Hill.TV

The Malheur County Court is expected to send a letter to Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum regarding its status as a Second Amendment Sanctuary, which has been in place since the court adopted an ordinance deeming it so in 2015.

Malheur County Sheriff Brian Wolfe on Oct. 6 urged members of the court to lend their support after learning that Rosenblum had just filed lawsuits against Yamhill and Harney counties regarding their resolutions passed in order to protect Second Amendment rights.

But gun rights advocates argue that red flag laws violate due process and infringe on gun owners' Second Amendment rights. And angry ex-partners and family members can easily abuse them to exact retribution, said Val Finnell, Pennsylvania director for Gun Owners of America.

"It turns due process on its head," he said. "Petitioners don't have to demonstrate that you committed a crime. They don't even have to demonstrate that there's any chance you'll commit a crime. They just have to demonstrate that you're subjectively a danger to someone. That's all it takes to be stripped of your constitutional rights."

The first step in developing a new project requires digging through five large firearm safes loaded with approximately 60 historical firearms to find the one unique gun that will become the next Cimarron authentically reproduced replica.
 

LA: Avoyelles Parish could become a second amendment ‘dedicated parish’

This came as a surprise to some, as multiple parishes in Central Louisiana have passed a similar declaration. The declaration is largely symbolic and states where the parish stands in the gun control debate. It was clear that some APPJ members had an issue with the word “sanctuary” in the declaration, which led juror Jacob Coco to draft a similar version of the declaration, this time without the word “sanctuary.”

“I think it’s a generic resolution, everybody is passing the same thing. We truly support the second amendment, and Avoyelles Parish is a hunting parish, and so I tailored something to Avoyelles Parish, I tailored something that hits home in Avoyelles Parish,” said Coco.

Evidence for the robustness of substantive rights, as opposed to the frailty of procedural rights, is that substantive rights can be and have been resurrected. This happened with the Second Amendment, after a period of being moribund. It's much less likely that a procedural right would be resurrected. As we've seen, resuscitating a procedural right would require radical change in the legal system.

The Illinois Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Cook County taxes on guns and ammunition violate the state constitution because they "directly burden a law-abiding citizen’s" second amendment right to buy the items for self-defense.

Supreme Court Justice Mary Jane Theis wrote in a 6-0 decision that the taxes violate the constitution’s uniformity clause. She noted revenue from the tax isn’t directed toward funds or programs to curb the costs of gun violence or reduce the violence.

Rep. Blake Miguez, R-Erath, a gun rights advocate, tweeted his disapproval less than two hours before the morning commission gathering while tagging the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action and the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

“Bond Commission should reject JP Morgan’s proposal to refinance [$700 million] of state bonds due to their discriminatory policies towards the firearms industry. [Louisiana] citizens should not be forced to fund those who aim to extinguish their [Second Amendment] constitutional rights. #lalege @NRAILA @NSSF,” he wrote, adding, “See Agenda Item #47.”
