"NRA has avoided the issue. There have been excuses from apologists, arguing unconvincingly that allowing millions of new anti-gun voters into the mix is not part of the 'single issue' mission of the association, or that somehow, the newly naturalized will discover 'pro-gun' principles. The problem with that is the first premise is demonstrably wrong, and the second is based on wholly on wishful thinking, never fleshed out with more than unsubstantiated opinion."

"To turn an entire population into a nation of victims is just unforgivable," the Senator concluded.

"The unvarnished truth is, those Jews who abet a state monopoly of violence, and are demanding the same edicts that gave the 'legal' pretext for sending Alfred Flatow to his brutal doom, are acting in much the same way as kapos, Jewish functionaries who assisted Nazi camp guards in the persecution of their people."

A federal appeals court in Cincinnati deemed a law unconstitutional that kept a Michigan man who was committed to a mental institution from owning a gun.
The three-judge panel of the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that a federal ban on gun ownership for those who have been committed to a mental institution violated the Second Amendment rights of 73-year-old Clifford Charles Tyler.
Tyler attempted to buy a gun and was denied on the grounds that he had been committed to a mental institution in 1986 after suffering emotional problems stemming from a divorce. He was only in there for a month.

Australia is the darling of the gun control crowd because, except for a few sport shooting activities, guns are banned.

Self-defense is unheard of for the most part. We can all see how well that worked out with the café shooting earlier this week.

This is another case of how “Gun Free Zones” kill innocent people.

A federal law prohibiting anyone who has ever been committed to a mental institution from owning a firearm is unconstitutional, the 6th Circuit ruled.

"The government's interest in keeping firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill is not sufficiently related to depriving the mentally healthy, who had a distant episode of commitment, of their constitutional rights," U.S. Circuit Judge Danny Boggs said, writing for the three-judge panel.

U.S. Circuit Jude Julia Gibbons joined the majority, but also wrote her own concurring opinion.

On the state scene, the Ohio General Assembly passed HB234, which allows the use of suppressors or silencers for hunting. The bill is awaiting Gov. John Kasich’s signature. Some groups are campaigning to have the governor veto the bill. The bill has the backing of the Buckeye Firearms Association, NRA and NSSF.

If the bill becomes law, Ohio will become the 34th state to allow suppressors to be used for the hunting of all game animals. Organizations which backed the bill claim sportsmen will benefit from the reduced noise.

The ordinance states that no person shall discharge a firearm before 8 am or after sunset. Also, any person who wishes to discharge a firearm must notify local police by phone of their intent to discharge a firearm 15 minutes prior to beginning such activity.

Fifteen minutes after the time of the phone call as recorded in the Newtown Police log shall begin a four-hour window in which such activity will be allowed on the subject property each day.

Among other restrictions in the ordinance are new safety provisions seeking to have any outdoor shooting activity overseen by the owner of the property on which the discharge is taking place, a guest of the owner who is present, or have written permission from the property owner.

The move, termed “Mike’s Law” with the blessing of the wife of murdered driver Mike Boeglin, is backed by the Small Business in Transportation Coalition.

Within hours of a guilty verdict at the Markus Kaarma murder trial, the lead defense attorney announced his intent to appeal the case to the Montana Supreme Court.

"We're fighting this not only for Marcus, but every homeowner, so they have guidance on what they can do in the house," said attorney Paul Ryan. "Because I think seriously right now, there's a lot of people in Montana, people have been asking me since the verdict, what can and can't we do in our house and that's not the intent of the law. But now they're going to have to sit there and question what they can and can't do."

A three-judge federal panel in Cincinnati unanimously ruled Thursday that a federal law banning gun ownership for a Michigan man who had been previously been committed to a mental institution violated his Second Amendment rights.

In the process, the court applied strict scrutiny to its analysis, noting, “we reject intermediate scrutiny here because it has no basis in the Constitution.” The court further said it used strict scrutiny because it “is more appropriate for assessing a challenge to an enumerated constitutional right, especially in light of Heller’s rejection of judicial interest-balancing.” The 2008 Heller ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental individual civil right.

Instead, the facility is touted as Orlando’s first “Automatic Adrenaline Attraction” and will be opening its doors on Saturday. Racks of AK rifles, Thompson submachine guns, and the iconic Uzi are offered to visitors to try out, along with other automatic weapons that are difficult to find or obtain.
