First off, before we get too wrapped up in semantics, there is no precise definition of what a “pocket gun” is or isn’t. Depending on your physical size and the style of your clothing, a pocket gun might be anything from a .22 derringer to a .45 ACP semi-automatic pistol or, really, anything. In my general estimation, most folks think of smaller guns chambered in .380 ACP or 9mm, though the term can cover a spectrum of calibers. There are even pocket .44 sixguns. Just ask John Taffin!

Not long ago, I heard about an incident I want to bring to your attention. A motorist, traveling outside his state of residence, was the victim of a minor traffic accident. However, during the investigation, an officer found two handguns in his car. The motorist was arrested for carrying without a permit, a felony in that particular state.

The problem was that the motorist had a concealed-carry permit alright—but only in his home state. This man was not a criminal.

Attorney General Andrea Joy Campbell has co-led a coalition of 17 other attorneys general in supporting the state of California’s efforts to restrict the capacity of firearms magazines within its borders. The coalition filed an amicus brief yesterday in support of California in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit Court, arguing that California’s prohibition on the possession and sale of large-capacity magazines is consistent with the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

Gunfire was exchanged over the course of three-and-a-half seconds early in the morning on Tuesday, Nov. 21 inside El Torero Bar in Pajaro. While brief, it was a consequential and fatal series of shots—two people were killed, including an employee and the assailant. Two others were injured.

Monterey County District Attorney Jeannine Pacioni announced that Sergio Ramos Carranza, who turned himself in at the Watsonville Police Department in the evening on Nov. 21, fired in self-defense.

Sen. Angus King of Maine was introducing a gun control bill Thursday that he said would regulate the sale, transfer, and manufacture of gas-operated semi-automatic weapons.

King, an Independent, and Democratic Sen. Martin Heinrich, of New Mexico, were introducing the bill together, called the Gas-Operated Semi-Automatic Firearms Exclusion (GOSAFE) Act.

“Saving lives now and in the future has been my single goal,” Sen. King said.

An Illinois firearms retailer and a national gun rights group on Wednesday asked the U.S. Supreme Court for a second time to block a Democratic-backed state ban on assault-style rifles and large capacity magazines, Andrew Chung reports for The Guardian. Illinois passed the ban in response to a massacre at an Independence Day parade in Highland Park in 2022 that left seven people dead and dozens more wounded.
 

GA: New proposed law would give tax credits for gun safes and locks -- but opponents call it dangerous

House Bill 855 is known as the Safe Storage Tax Credit Act. The bill sponsor, Democratic State Representative Michelle Au, pre-filed the bill on Wednesday.

“All it aims to do is to provide an up to a $300 tax credit for the purchase of safe storage equipment," said Au.

Au said it’s a companion bill to another gun bill she dropped last session, House Bill 161.

“All it (HB 161) does is require that any gun owned by anyone that could be accessed by a minor be secured safely,” Au said.

She said both bills aim to keep children safe.

This month we asked you: "What's your relationship with guns?"

We wanted to know if your experiences with guns have affected your views on gun policy, and if your thoughts or feelings have ever changed in response to your personal experiences or events in the news.

We heard stories about hunting and how guns played a part in some people's childhoods or bonding with family. We heard from people who were issued firearms in the armed forces. And we heard from many of you who expressed your concerns about access to guns.

U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats on Tuesday discussed how to treat gun violence as a public health crisis, in hopes of building upon last year’s federal gun safety legislation.

“Across the country, gun violence is a public health epidemic,” Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin, the chairman of the committee, said in his opening remarks.
 

FL: Florida Supreme Court rules Marsy’s Law can’t be used to conceal names of crime victims or cops involved in use-of-force cases

Law enforcement officers involved in line-of-duty shootings and other use-of-force situations are not entitled to shield their identities from the public, even when they insist they were acting in self-defense, the Florida Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

In a 27-page ruling that went further than many analysts expected, the Florida court said the constitutional amendment known as “Marsy’s Law” also does not prohibit law enforcement agencies from revealing the names of any crime victims.

I have been seeing a lot of posts about a stabbing that happened at Southeast Raleigh High School, when I watched the video what I saw is a stark reminder of the brutal reality of self-defense. Because Gen Z doesn’t miss a chance to be featured on WorldStar the incident was of course caught on camera, here it is.
 

Rahimi, Second Amendment Originalism, and the Disarming of Loyalists During the American Revolution

As the Court decides the case, it will confront a potentially consequential piece of American history in its analysis—namely, whether the many laws enacted during the Revolutionary War disarming those “disaffected to the American cause”—that is, “loyalists”—support upholding the law at issue in Rahimi, 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(8). It is therefore fair to say that some of this country’s earliest national security laws lie at the heart of the case.

A stark difference in how Florida Democrats and Republicans balance gun rights with public safety is shown in bills filed for the 2024 regular session of the Florida Legislature, which begins Jan 9.

The 10 firearms-related proposals include one that aims to repeal the landmark Stand Your Ground law that earned Florida the “Gunshine State” nickname. It's almost guaranteed to be ignored by the GOP supermajority that controls both chambers in Tallahassee.

The Beretta Tomcat is a .32 Auto that utilizes the “Tip Up” barrel system. It functions like a standard semiautomatic, but the first round can be chambered by popping the barrel up and inserting the round rather than pulling the slide back.

Langdon Tactical spruced the Tomcat up with a red dot optics cut, trigger job, and carry bevel on the rear of the gun to reduce snags. This model also includes a threaded barrel for suppressor use. LTT currently lists a 1-3 week lead time for the Tomcat. Prices start at $649 for the gun only, $699 with a SIG Romeo, or $849 with a Holosun 407k. You can order one directly from LTT.

New Jersey is again at the forefront of gun reform as Attorney General Matthew Platkin will help lead a coalition of 17 attorneys general in a lawsuit asserting that large-capacity magazines are not protected by the Second Amendment.

Platkin has teamed up with Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Joy Campbell to support California’s efforts to restrict the capacity of large-capacity magazines within its borders. They filed a brief on Thursday to support California’s work to prohibit the possession and sale of the magazines in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

Maryland is one of 14 states that require background checks for all firearm purchases, whether or not the seller is a federally licensed dealer. Since 2013, Maryland has imposed an additional requirement on handgun buyers: They must first obtain a “handgun qualification license,” which entails completing at least four hours of firearm training and undergoing a seemingly redundant “investigation” aimed at screening out people who are legally disqualified from owning guns.

The tripling of people with concealed gun permits combined with the majority of states that no longer license owners who want to carry means that someone near you right now is likely packing heat.

“It is very likely that any place that allows people to carry a concealed handgun will have someone carrying their gun,” said a new report shared with Secrets from John R. Lott’s Crime Prevention Research Center.

John Madore, the suspected shooter, previously had been involuntarily committed to New Hampshire Hospital, and questions remain about where and how he got the weapons he had with him during the shooting.

Officials said very limited information about someone's mental health history is looked at in the background check process to buy guns in the state.

"Allowing a prohibited person to get a gun is not in anybody's best interest," Evan Nappen, an attorney and Second Amendment advocate, said.
