NY: Murders in NYC surge for second week in a row as coronavirus lockdown continues

Despite coronavirus lockdown measures, murders in New York City have doubled for the second consecutive week.

But over the last 28 days -- during which the city has observed lockdowns and other pandemic safety measures -- that number has spiked. Murder has increased by 55 percent: 28 murders vs. 18 in the same period last year.

Submitter's note: Of course it wouldn't have anything to do with the police practicing self preservation instead of policing.

A DW investigation has found that protest groups in various US states against recent coronavirus lockdown measures were set up by conservative gun lobbyists. The coordinated effort seems to be driven by the apparent long-term aim of building a larger base of support for gun law relaxation.

This comes after thousands of people across the US organized online and started to demand an end to stay-at-home orders. Protest organizers claim on their Facebook pages that the lockdown restrictions are a result of "politicians on a power trip," who they allege are "destroying our businesses, passing laws behind the cover of darkness, and forcing us to hand over our freedoms and livelihood."

Judge Frank Patrick Yeatts of the Lynchburg Circuit Court will make a decision on Monday regarding a challenge to Governor Ralph Northam’s Executive Order 53.

The plaintiffs in the case; the Citizens Defense League, Gun Owners of America, SafeSide Lynchburg, and the Association of Virginia Gun Ranges; argue that indoor gun ranges should be considered “essential” and allowed to reopen. Attorney David Brown cited the Second Amendment and argued that ranges are needed for gun owners to be properly trained to handle a firearm.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam tried to circumvent the state court system by attempting to move a case brought by SafeSide Tactical shooting range of Lynchburg, the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), and Gun Owners of America (GOA) against the Commonwealth’s shutdown of indoor shooting ranges due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) to the federal court level.

SafeSide Tactical has been hit hard by the Governor’s forced shutdown. The state-mandated closure forced the Lynchburg based shooting range to lay off more than half of its staff. Other indoor shooting ranges from across the state faced similar issues stay afloat during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
 

NY: NSSF on NY Gov’s Comments: King Cuomo Should Look in the Mirror

Three-term New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo recently bemoaned President Donald Trump’s leadership during the coronavirus pandemic, stating “We don’t have a king in this country. We didn’t want a king, so we have a Constitution and we elect a president.”

Perhaps “the Guv” should look in the mirror before opening his mouth.

Gov. Cuomo has used his daily time in front of press conference bright lights to knock the president. But he has his own king-like history of overstepping as the Empire State’s top elected official. That’s especially true now during the pandemic, and especially when it comes to the Second Amendment and the Constitutional rights of New Yorkers.

The woman called her husband before calling 911. By that point, Reyes had noticed the woman and began trying to break into the house. By the time the husband got home...

“He got back up again, and came at the homeowner and the homeowner fired one shot with a shotgun, hitting the guy in the right knee/upper leg, and breaking his femur,” said Duke.

Reyes is now at a hospital in Fort Worth, while the Wichita County sheriff’s office works to present this case to the district attorney’s office. The homeowner’s case will then be heard before a grand jury to decide if he was acting in self-defense, something Sheriff Duke believes is evident.

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.

"The experiment has been tried. The casualties have been counted. California's new ammunition background check law misfires and the Second Amendment rights of California citizens have been gravely injured," Benitez wrote in a 120-page opinion granting the group's motion for a preliminary injunction.

Nearly 20 years ago, the Fifth Circuit held that a federal law prohibiting people subject to domestic violence protective orders from possessing guns or ammo was constitutional. And the caselaw has not developed in a way to change that conclusion, says the Fifth Circuit, though two-thirds of the panel separately encourage the court to take the issue en banc to consider an entirely different framework for Second Amendment challenges.

On April 13, the Trump Administration published a proposed rule to end a ban on the possession of firearms in water resource development projects administered by the Army Corps of Engineers (ACE).

These areas comprise one of the largest networks of outdoor recreation sites in America, encompassing more than 400 lake and river projects in 43 states. Activities that occur on these sites include hiking, boating, fishing, camping, hunting, and geocaching.

Currently, regulations pertaining to these areas authorize the use and possession of firearms only for specified purposes, including hunting or at designated shooting ranges, or with written permission from the District Commander who has jurisdiction over the area in question.

A Middleborough gun shop owner is defying Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker’s ban on gun shops during the coronavirus emergency, instead offering curbside service to customers similar to the way restaurants are offering takeout food to customers.

“This thing with the governor, all the rest of the country, most gun shops are open. This governor, his plan is to shut down the gun shops, not because the spread of the pandemic, it’s all about taking away our rights. It’s all about preventing the sales of guns,” said John Costa, owner of The Gunrunner, of Midddleborough, according to MassLive.com.

Gun control activists from coast to coast are cheering Virginia Democrats who have accomplished what most of them achieve only in their dreams.

Lawmakers in the Democratic-controlled legislature put the finishing touches on enacting Governor Ralph Northam's destruction of Second Amendment rights in the state. Earlier this year, Democrats passed 5 bills, each one worse than the last, including laws that make it illegal to purchase more than one gun a month, background checks on all state gun sales, and being fined $250 for not reporting a stolen gun in 48 hours.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
When Pa was at home the gun always lay across those two wooden hooks above the door. ... The gun was always loaded, and always above the door so that Pa could get it quickly and easily, any time he needed a gun. — Laura Ingalls Wilder
