One of these standout women is Karen Butler who, since 2008 when she created “Shoot Like a Girl,” made it her mission to empower women to “participate in shooting sports with confidence.” When it comes to getting women involved in the firearm and hunting community, Karen has continuously helped to right an imbalanced ship. Through her efforts she has inspired thousands of once-hesitant women to transform themselves into confident gun owners and hunters, launching them on their own journeys to becoming responsible for their own personal safety and that of their families.

The Second Amendment Foundation is about to celebrate a milestone—its 50th anniversary (founded in August 1974) —and as the organization moves into 2024, it does so with a full head of steam that has placed it at the forefront of gun rights litigation across the country.

SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb has become a nationally recognized leader in the Second Amendment movement. SAF’s motto is “Winning Firearms Freedom, One Lawsuit at a Time.” During the past year, SAF has moved the ball ahead, with victories in California, West Virginia, New York, Texas, Maryland and elsewhere. The group works with some of the best attorneys in the country, specializing in Second Amendment cases.

Vice President Kamla Harris is coming for your firearms. On Twitter today, she announced she wants to ban assault weapons, essentially all semi-automatic rifles on the market today.

“We want to ban assault weapons,” Harris posted. “Republicans want to ban books. We are fighting for working people. Republicans are fighting to cut taxes for our country’s wealthiest people. We are investing to fight the climate crisis. Republicans are denying climate change. Elections matter.”

What she wanted now were modest measures that she believed could have prevented the violence and still be accepted by other Republicans.

Ms. Joyce and other Covenant parents felt they stood a better chance than anyone at cutting through the divisions on gun control. Among them were former Republican aides, gun owners and lifelong conservatives who could afford to spend days at the legislature.

But the Tennessee legislature proved more hostile than the Covenant parents imagined. And when Ms. Joyce heard just one more gun rights supporter dismiss the parents’ concerns after days of restraint, her patience snapped.

However, a bill introduced this week in Richmond by State Sen. Saddam Salim — a Democrat representing parts of Fairfax County, and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church — would make it illegal for a gun owner to carry the weapon into the establishment, even without taking a drink.

Salim’s bill, SB 57, would make it a Class 2 misdemeanor to have the concealed weapon in any business that has been granted a Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority license to sell and serve alcohol for on-premises consumption.

The bill would exempt local, state, federal and certain retired law enforcement officers from carrying a gun into the establishment.
 

CA: Federal judge rules in California’s favor in open carry firearm dispute

Mueller previously had denied the men a preliminary injunction, which sought to stop enforcement of the state law criminalizing unlicensed open carry. They then appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The appeals court in September reversed Mueller’s decision, stating the federal judge used an incorrect legal standard in her ruling. It also stated Mueller should move quickly on the issue.

Bellantoni, the men’s attorney, in mid-October wrote to the appeals court about a lack of a decision. She worried that Mueller would delay a decision on the injunction until the summary judgment motions were submitted and possibly decided.

A new law goes into effect across Hawaii on Jan. 1, 2024, that will require people who want to get a handgun permit to first complete a safety training course taught by a verified instructor.

The problem is the Honolulu Police Department has not certified any instructors yet, therefore it will be impossible to get a permit.

Many gun owners said this is just another obstacle making it more difficult to carry guns here. The long lines outside HPD headquarters this week were filled with people trying to get a permit before the law changes.

A man in Philadelphia fatally shot a would-be criminal Tuesday after the suspect attempted to carjack him in the city's Pennsport area.

Authorities were called to the scene around 5 a.m., and when police got there, they were met with the body of the would-be carjacker, identified as an 18- to 22-year-old male, who was pronounced dead upon their arrival, according to a report.
 

Attorney General Knudsen Leads 25-State Effort To Strike Down Unconstitutional Firearm Magazine Ban

Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen led 24 other state attorneys general in filing an amicus brief late Thursday to safeguard law-abiding individuals’ right to keep and bear arms in public for self-defense against unnecessary intrusions. In this case, that unnecessary intrusion is a California law banning firearm magazines that can hold more than ten rounds.

The district court appropriately recognized that California’s 10-round ammunition capacity limit “denies a citizen the federal constitutional right to use common weapons of their own choosing for self-defense.” In his decision, U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez called the law “clearly unconstitutional.”

Regarding security, the bill also introduces amendments to the Penal Code to broaden the right to legitimate self-defense and offer the security forces greater support. On this point, the text also establishes that the person who commits a crime or, in the case of death, his relatives “do not have the right to file a complaint or sue the person preventing the crime or preventing flight.” The text also legislates on “resistance to authority” and establishes penalties of up to six years for anyone who “uses intimidation or force against a public official or against the person who assists them at their request.”

For his first two years in office, Gov. Glenn Youngkin was not forced to act on any gun legislation, as Republicans and Democrats in a divided Capitol defeated each other’s bills to expand or restrict access to firearms.

That will likely change as Democrats take control of both the House and Senate in Virginia’s General Assembly session beginning Jan. 10. Among the gun-control bills that could land on the Republican governor’s desk are measures to ban the sale of new assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, which are often used in mass killings.

According to the company website, its late founder “revolutionized the world of small arms.”
 

In these chaotic times, a brief AR-15 primer

The Seventh Circuit has recently ruled AR-15 pattern rifles are not protected by the Second Amendment. The lawless ruling ignores the Heller and Bruen decisions.

Leading the list of long guns sold, the ubiquitous AR-15 is the most popular sporting rifle in America. Circa 2023, Americans own more than 23 million. The AR-15 is also the rifle type democrats/Socialists/Communists are most desperate to ban, that and so-called “high capacity magazines,” which have been standard capacity magazines since the Vietnam War.
 

IN: ‘Why Shoot?’: Revisiting gun violence in Michiana

Two years ago, we took a deeper dive into the reasons behind gun violence in Michiana in our Emmy-winning series “Why Shoot?”

We learned a lot back then through the eyes of three men, two of them former convicts who did time for shooting someone. The reasons were mixed: “evening up” a score, survival, and even self-defense.

That last reason is why Isaac Hunt shot and killed a man outside of Barnaby’s in downtown South Bend in 1990. He did his time in prison, 10 years served in fact, as part of a 30-year sentence.

With a December 31 deadline fast approaching, the Illinois State Police released their Week 11 compliance update on Wednesday and it’s a doozy. While thousands of Illinois gun owners have dutifully complied, millions have not. Holders of 15,164 Firearms Owner ID cardholders have registered an average of about 3.5 covered items each.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta, as part of a coalition of 22 attorneys general, filed a brief in support of a federal law that prohibits firearms dealers from selling handguns and handgun ammunition to persons under the age of 21. The case, McCoy v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, is currently pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and addresses a Second Amendment challenge to 18 U.S.C. § 922(b)(1). States across the nation protect their citizens through the application of similar age-based restrictions on the possession, purchase, sale, transfer, or use of firearms because such laws have proven to promote public safety and curb gun violence within their borders.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property . . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them. — Thomas Paine, Thoughts on Defensive War (1775).
