NJ: Should you be allowed to carry a handgun in New Jersey

"New Jersey’s may-issue statute also requires that people justify their need to carry. And even though the Supreme Court said that self-defense is 'the central component' of the Second Amendment, the desire to defend yourself is insufficient justification under New Jersey law. This makes it all but impossible for law-abiding gun owners to receive a permit, which is required to lawfully carry a handgun in New Jersey."

A woman told a dispatcher that she shot a man who intruded into her Bellbrook home Saturday night.

In a 9-1-1 call, the woman told a dispatcher that she was sitting in her garage when the man, the father of her child, entered her home uninvited.

“He’s never been in my house. I don’t deal with him, I don’t talk with him,” the woman said.

It only seemed right to kick this off with John Moses Browning’s FN 1900, the great grandfather to all modern handguns and the first to feature a sliding action. A fitting start to a segment I have been looking forward to for a long while now. I have owned this firearm for a few years now and had hunted one down as a gift to myself as a reminder of the time I spent as a product service technician at FN America.

Bakersfield four-location gun store Second Amendment Sports has sold to a large, Rancho Cucamonga-based chain at what has been a bumpy time for the nation's firearm retailers.

Turner's Outdoorsman, a 49-year-old company with 29 stores, said Wednesday its purchase of Second Amendment will expand its reach into new regions and allow it to "continue to offer loyal customers the superior products, exceptional value and outstanding customer service that both these brands are known for."

Black Friday saw over 186,000 background checks conducted for the purchase of firearms, the fourth highest single-day total in history. The entire holiday weekend saw more than 417,000 checks, according to new data from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

Though Black Friday 2019 saw more checks conducted on that day alone, 2020’s holiday weekend exceeded the prior year’s by roughly 15,000 background checks processed through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for the purchases of firearms. Following the holiday weekend, Cyber Monday had an additional 124,000 checks.
 

WI: Illinois teen has preliminary hearing on Wisconsin charges

In a filing this week, Richards asked the court to dismiss two of the six counts against Rittenhouse. He argued that a misdemeanor count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18 isn’t supported by the law — an argument that the court already rejected once.

Richards also sought the dismissal of a felony count against Rittenhouse for recklessly endangering the public's safety by using a dangerous weapon. Richards said the state offered no proof to substantiate that charge, which was based on witness Richard McGinnis’ account of Rittenhouse firing his gun with McGinnis in the line of fire.

Two years after Louisiana voters overwhelmingly backed a state constitutional amendment requiring unanimous jury verdicts in future felony cases — repealing a state law that allowed verdicts to stand on a 10-2 jury vote — the United States Supreme Court on Wednesday heard oral arguments in a case that could overturn the split-jury guilty verdicts of more than 1,000 people still in Louisiana prisons.
 

The Handgun Red-Dot Revolution

While the slide-mounted, red-dot sight has been around for a lot longer than most shooters probably realize, it has only really begun developing into a mature technology over the last few years.

Almost every service-pistol line now offers a variant machined to accept slide-mounted optics, and even pocket 9 mms are now available with an optics cut. It’s becoming more common in law-enforcement use. Here in my home city of Indianapolis, my sources tell me that the next academy class will be given the option of being issued MOS-series Glocks, and the SWAT team already uses dots on its handguns.

With less than a month remaining in the legislative session, Gov. Mike DeWine’s gun policy response to the 2019 Dayton mass shooting, which killed nine and injured 27 more, could be all but doomed.

Cyber Monday gun background checks surged by 65% this year compared to the same day last year with more than 123,700 conducted, while checks for the extended holiday weekend as a whole were up by roughly 4% year-over-year, according to recently released statistics.

Of the 19.1 million gun background checks conducted year-to-date, 417,465 were done from Thursday to Sunday, while another 123,797 were completed on Cyber Monday, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) said in an email to Fox News.

For lying on her federal income tax returns, Lisa Folajtar got three years of probation and a lifetime of constitutional disability. Because her crime carried a maximum penalty of three years in prison, she was permanently stripped of her Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

According to the most recent report by the Pew Research Center, Blacks are more likely to see their race and ethnicity as central to their identity. Some would argue that America never forgets to remind Black people of said race and ethnicity.

In these times, some Black people believe weapons are necessary to protect that identity.

Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced the filing of a new federal Second Amendment lawsuit that seeks to strike down the State of Maryland’s ban on so-called “assault weapons,” arms that are constitutionally protected under the Second Amendment. The case, Bianchi, et al. v. Frosh, et al., can be found at FPCLegal.org.

Joining FPC are 3 individuals, licensed firearms retailer Field Traders, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA).
 

GA: NRA Opener In Georgia: Why Is Warnock Laughing At Self-Defense For Churchgoers?

It’s a couple of days old, and it’s not quite the bombshell that the NRA’s political-action arm claims, but it’s a start. Earlier oppo-research releases about Raphael Warnock regarding an arrest for obstructing a child-abuse case, allegedly participating in a Fidel Castro rally, and vocal defense of Jeremiah Wright’s “God damn America” sermon made the Democratic senatorial nominee look more toxic in Georgia.
 

Biden's HHS frontrunners say gun control is a health issue

President-elect Joe Biden's top picks for the Department of Health & Human Services have both declared gun violence a public health issue in the past, much to the ire of gun rights activists and the National Rifle Association.

Vivek Murthy, a former appointee to HHS under the Obama administration, has long accused politicians of being afraid of the NRA and playing politics with gun control efforts, particularly after the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School where 26 people, including 20 children-- were killed by a gunman.

Blacksburg Town Council is set to act on a proposed ordinance to ban the carrying of firearms inside public buildings and on streets being used for festivals, among other places.

If passed, the ordinance would make Blacksburg one of just a handful of Virginia localities that have taken such action—something that localities can now do based on a local option measure passed by the General Assembly earlier this year and that took effect in July.

Laursen added gun issues to the list of priorities for the Freedom Caucus. “We want some more pro-gun issues brought forward and pushed,” he said.

The Wyoming Legislature has passed some measures, like a controversial “stand your ground” self-defense law, in recent years. Lawmakers have rejected other measures to roll back the state’s few gun restrictions, however.
 

FL: Republicans push back against bill that would require background checks for ammo sales

Republican lawmakers are pushing back against a bill filed on Monday that would require background checks on Floridians purchasing ammunition.

The bill, known as “Jaime’s Law,” is named in honor of 14-year-old Jaime Guttenberg, one of the 17 people tragically killed in the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre. The measure (HB 25), filed by Democrat Dan Daley, is the same bill he filed during the 2020 Legislative Session. That legislation never made it to the House floor.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them. — George Mason, "Remarks on Annual Elections for the Fairfax Independent Company" in The Papers of George Mason, 1725-1792, ed Robert A. Rutland (Chapel Hill, 1970).
