Gun disability relief funding ban could be challenged in spending bill

... "... If restrictions remain unchallenged, it will recall the many times rules objectionable to gun owners have quietly been allowed to remain in place. Still, there is one change that could be insisted on now, and if it derailed the spending approval process either in a Harry Reid-controlled Senate, or if Barack Obama rejected it, that decision would fall squarely on the Democrats: Congress could, if it wanted to, restore funding to allow for relief of firearms disabilities -- or at least it could after January if it passed a short term resolution and left the long term bill for the incoming majority." ...

"I get the Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America Facebook feed. Anytime anyone is shot MDA waves the bloody shirt. The younger the victim, the better. For example, 'A two-year-old toddler, Mackenzie Baskins, was hospitalized after being struck by a bullet from a drive-by shooting that targeted several houses in a North Carolina neighborhood this week. It was the fourth shooting in Charlotte within a two-day period.' Gang banging ain’t the point. The post’s underlying concept . . ." ...

"Saturday saw the first steps toward Michael Bloomberg-style gun control in Arizona with the Brady Campaign joining 'community leaders and activists' to protest a so-called 'bad apple gun dealer,' while the Washington Arms Collectors (WAC) launched its $10 background check program in Monroe, which continues this coming weekend in Puyallup."

"This Saturday’s WAC gun show will be competing with the planned 'I Will Not Comply' rally in Olympia. That event begins at 11 a.m., and will not be repeated on Sunday, while the WAC show is a two-day affair." ...

"It is often said that a liberal is a conservative who hasn’t been mugged yet. I can certainly attest to that. My road to Damascus moment happened in downtown Providence. I was a teen, doing some Christmas shopping, when a knife-wielding youth demanded my money. I gave it to him. But I’ll never forget the dead look in his eyes. He literally didn’t care whether I lived or died. So here’s the thing: pro-gunners wouldn’t want a liberal to get mugged to come to his or her senses. Or would we? Patriot Protection in Dallas, Texas has challenged antis to come to their training range and go toe-to-toe with a foe. [Press release after the jump.] What are the odds? So, short of that, what? . . ." ...

"Saturday’s 'I will not comply' gathering in Olympia will include some nationally-known government critics, while a more legislative-oriented Jan. 15 event, co-sponsored by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and the Second Amendment Foundation, who were joined today by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, could leave a more immediate impression on state lawmakers, considering a Monday morning e-mail exchange between Examiner and the Department of Licensing (DOL)."

"Every year a new wonder nine arrives on the scene. While the new gun in town gets all the attention, Kahr’s 'pocket nines' – the CM9, PM9, MK9 pistols – and its super short .380 ACP pistols keep on selling to discerning self-defenders. The CW9 has something the other Kahrs don’t: a 3-finger grip length. This additional grip length is welcome for accuracy and control, but it’s also the turning point between a true 'pocket pistol' and one that requires a holster. It’s a feature, not a bug . ." ...

"A month ago I wrapped up the review of Beretta’s new Pico. It’s definitely the slimmest, tiniest .380 out there and I really dig the great sights, the quick and simple takedown, and the fact that only the easily-removable inner chassis is the serialized 'firearm.' However, I wasn’t such a fan of the ejection problems I was experiencing. After a call with Beretta USA’s VP of Product Marketing and some further testing, there are some updates, tech notes, and best practices that I wanted to share here (some have subsequently been added to the owner’s manual), as I have experienced zero stoppages since . . ." ...

So when I got SilencerCo’s press release (after the jump) announcing they’re getting into the ammo biz with their new Harvester line of ammunition, I immediately requested some samples for him to test. I still wouldn’t advise getting in his way, but at least he knows he’ll be getting some of the new silencer-optimized rounds soon . . ." ...

"With the recent news that Remington is (kinda) recalling every Model 700 rifle ever made to replace their triggers, I figured that now would be the perfect time to review another offering from Timney Triggers. I reviewed their standard Remington 700 trigger nearly two years ago, and it hasn’t left my rifle since the day it was installed. However, the guys at Timney tipped me off that there might be a better choice for those looking to squeeze that last little drop of accuracy out of their gun: the Calvin Elite model." ...

"A Vietnam veteran who is disabled and uses a walker to get around thinks he was targeted in a recent home invasion because the suspects thought he was an easy mark."

"According to the Gaston Gazette:"
""Sapienza, a Marine Corps veteran who served four years in Vietnam, was watching television in his bed ... He heard someone prying off the lock and pulling the nails to the latch out of his front door."

"He grabbed his .45-caliber handgun, put it in a holster on his walker and began shuffling toward the sound. He flipped a hallway light on, yelled out to announce he was armed, and yanked open the door to see two men wearing ski masks."

"They jumped off his porch and practically tripped over one another trying to flee, Sapienza said." ...

"Lawyers for Connecticut gun rights advocates are expected to appear Tuesday at a federal courthouse in New York, where they will appeal a 2014 decision upholding the constitutionality of the state’s post-Sandy Hook firearm restrictions."

"In January, U.S. District Court Judge Alfred Covello ruled that the gun law ... passed constitutional muster even if it burdened Connecticut gun owners."

"Covello ruled against a lawsuit brought by the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen, Connecticut Citizens Defense League, gun store owners, and individual citizens. The plaintiffs had argued that the law was unconstitutional and provisions within it were too vague to apply." ...

"D.C. is defending its law allowing the concealed carry of handguns against a motion from handgun supporters to hold the city in contempt."

"In July, a federal judge ruled that D.C.'s complete ban on carrying handguns in public is unconstitutional. After being granted a temporary stay, the D.C. Council passed emergency legislation and the Metropolitan Police Department instituted regulations allowing handgun owners to apply for a concealed carry permit. The Council is set to soon approve permanent legislation, while the city is currently appealing, but in the meantime D.C.'s attorneys must deal with a claim that the law does not comply with the original ruling." ...

"Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court determined that the Second Amendment protected every citizen’s right to 'keep and bear arms' in its 2008 Heller decision, lower federal courts have sought to evade the application of that rule. That pattern is now continuing in Maryland, where a district judge has upheld the Maryland 2013 Firearms Safety Act ('Act') that bans (i) so-called 'assault weapons' and (ii) so-called 'large-capacity magazines' ..."

"Our firm filed an amicus curiae brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, in support of a challenge to that ruling."

"A local man's legal fight could overturn a long-time Florida gun law. The future of Florida's ban on openly carrying a firearm depends on a decision from a judge in the 4th District Court of Appeal."

"In February of 2012, Dale Lee Norman of Fort Pierce was walking down the sidewalk of a busy street. His firearm was completely exposed as shown in police dash-cam video. Norman's attorney Eric Friday says Norman had his concealed weapon permit but did not know his gun became accidentally exposed."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power." [Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)]
