Pandemic fuels state-level feuds over gun rights

COVID-19 has ignited the debate over gun rights as states grapple with whether to allow gun sales while other retailers are forced to shutter.

Stores selling guns and ammunition legally remain open in 45 states, including North Carolina. Sellers and manufacturers are considered essential services that are exempt from stay-at-home orders. Where governors or local officials have ordered stores closed, the National Rifle Association and its allies have sued, saying the mandates restrict Second Amendment rights.
 

Under Biden, Gun Ownership Would Be a “Heavily Regulated Privilege”

Dave Workman, senior editor for GunMag.com (published by the Second Amendment Foundation), reviewed the 3,100-word anti-gun platform available at Joe Biden’s campaign website and called it a recipe “to turn the right to keep and bear arms into a heavily-regulated privilege.”

The de facto Democrat Party candidate for president insists, of course, that he will follow “constitutional, common-sense gun safety policies.” But consider just the first policy: abolishing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act passed in 2005 that keeps gun makers from being held liable for crimes committed when a criminal uses one of their products.

With the exception of an all-out ban on assault style weapons and high capacity magazines, the final passage of these policies completes the group of eight public safety bills Northam proposed during the 2019 special legislative session. The General Assembly will revisit an assault rifle ban in 2021.

FL: AG Ashley Moody Asks Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried to Stop Violating Gun Rights

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody sent a letter to Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried asking her to stop delaying the processing of Concealed Weapons & Firearms License applications. And of course, Nikki Fried falsely denied doing anything wrong.

Clearly, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried has exceeded her authority and is unlawfully exercising her own anti-gun political desires. Florida law is very clear and Nikki Fried should take the time to actually read the law.

A federal judge on Thursday blocked a California law requiring background checks for people buying ammunition, issuing a sharply worded rebuke of “onerous and convoluted” regulations that violate the constitutional right to bear arms.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego ruled in favor of the California Rifle & Pistol Association, which asked him to stop the checks and related restrictions on ammo sales.

Anti-gun forces are always quick to report the use of firearms in violent crimes – but they never talk about the number of times law-abiding people use a firearm successfully in lawful self-defense. Published in the 1990s, “Point Blank” by Dr. Gary Kleck, a criminologist, and researcher from Florida State University, destroyed the arguments of gun control proponents.

His research revealed that crime among people who carry guns for self-defense is almost nonexistent.

A federal judge in California ruled that a law requiring background checks to purchase ammunition violates the Second Amendment.

Voters approved toughening California firearms laws to include background checks on ammo purchases in 2016, and the restrictions took effect last July. The California Rifle & Pistol Association filed a lawsuit against the state shortly after.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez called the law “onerous and convoluted” and “constitutionally defective.”
 

NC: Armed protesters appeared at the last Republican convention. Will Charlotte see the same?

Second Amendment activists openly carried rifles, shotguns and handguns outside of the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Could the same scene unfold in Charlotte, when the 2020 Republican National Convention convenes in August?

At least one group that bore firearms in Cleveland said it plans to come to Charlotte if the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t derail the convention. Dale Herndon, director of Bikers for Trump, said the organization expects to be in Charlotte for the RNC unless the Trump campaign tells it to do otherwise.

“Hopefully it will happen and we will be a part of it,” Herndon says. “We do support the Second Amendment...”

Here Are The U.S. Senators That Used COVID-19 To Push Their Gun Control Agenda

The COVID-19 panic has been used by would-be state and local authoritarians as an excuse to keep Americans from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. Thankfully, American gun owners have a friend in the White House that has worked to protect their rights on the federal level by declaring the firearms industry to be critical infrastructure. However, this respect for the Second Amendment isn’t uniform in the federal government. There are some federal lawmakers seeking to exploit COVID-19 to pursue their pre-existing gun control agenda.

He had the unmitigated gall and unbridled criminal audacity to visit a rally in North Carolina called “Re-Open North Carolina” and post a live stream of his fellow patriots exercising their God-given rights as human beings confirmed by the First Amendment to the Constitution to peacefully assemble and petition their government for redress.

The potential retirement of two U.S. Supreme Court Justices has liberal Democrats on edge. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is 87 years old and Justice Stephen Breyer is 81.

With core liberal issues on the Supreme Court docket, anti-gunners are desperate to find ways to help Joe Biden become the next U.S. President so he can chose the next Supreme Court replacements. Even CBS is reporting it.
