Supreme Court delights conservatives with action on wish list

With Barrett on board, the court has already used emergency appeals from churches fighting pandemic restrictions to significantly strengthen religious rights. Now liberals have reason to worry that the newest cases, which include an attack on the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion rights ruling and a call for a constitutional right to carry a gun in public, signal that the court’s conservatives are ready to begin a legal transformation.

About 40 million US citizens take joy in recreational shooting every year. Most of these do it because it’s pure fun firing at targets and hitting them. Others do it to sharpen their shooting skills for hunting and self-defense.

Others engage in recreational shooting to reap health benefits such as increasing mental and physical discipline, boosting arm strength and ability to focus, exercising eye capabilities, and elevating personal responsibility.
 

NEW Bond Arms PT2A Handgun – Protect The 2nd Amendment

Take a look at any self-defense forum and you’ll see people talking down to anyone who carries less than their favorite caliber. If you carry less than 58 rounds, you’re a fool. What people often forget in this community, as well as most of the world, is that not everyone’s life looks the way yours does. Different people have different needs. This is exactly why we have so many options when it comes to protecting ourselves with a firearm. For a lot of people, two rounds doesn’t sound like enough. However, Bond Arms doesn’t care what those people think. They continue to produce double barrel, two-shot pistols, and loyal customers who see merit in the guns keep buying them!

The board that oversees Montana’s university system voted unanimously Wednesday to file a lawsuit against the state seeking a ruling over whether the state Legislature or the Board of Regents has the constitutional authority to regulate the possession of guns on campuses.

The vote directed the Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education to file a legal challenge to House Bill 102, which, in part, would allow students and staff who meet safety certifications to carry concealed firearms without a permit on campuses starting June 1.

Also speaking at the rally was Mike “The Gun Guy” McQuown. All shared their views and opinions related to the Second Amendment.

On May 11, Charlotte County commissioners declared Charlotte County a “Second Amendment sanctuary” that purports to hinder or prevent the enforcement of certain gun safety laws. Similar resolutions have passed in other counties in Florida and around the country.

Proponents of these resolutions pronounce any gun-control legislation as unconstitutional, whether it requires background checks or a waiting period, bans bump-stock devices that allow for rapid fire, or outlaws assault-style rifles.
 

WI: Portage County Board adopts pared-down constitutional 'sanctuary' resolution after finger-pointing during Tuesday's meeting

A debate over what started as a proposal to make Portage County a Second Amendment "sanctuary" devolved Tuesday into board members trading barbs about patriotism and yelling at one another.

Board member Scott Soik, of Linwood, originally proposed making the county a "sanctuary" for the U.S. Constitution, with special attention to the Second Amendment. Fellow board member Vincent Miresse, of Stevens Point, then revised the proposal two weeks ago to eliminate references to sanctuaries and the Second Amendment.
 

Clarence Thomas awaits his chance to drive the conservative majority on abortion and guns

He also took aim at challenges to the Second Amendment, accusing lower courts and his own colleagues of thumbing their noses at the right to bear arms, calling it a "disfavored right."

Now Thomas is 72 years old with a head of gray hair and he is awaiting a new season on a 6-3 conservative majority court. The justices have agreed to hear a case next term that critics -- and some supporters -- say is meant to gut Roe. They will also hear a Second Amendment case that could expand gun rights. And Thomas, the longest-serving member of the court, will likely find himself in the majority.

On Monday, May 17, the Minnesota Legislature adjourned from their 2021 Regular Session. This session, your NRA-ILA constantly monitored over 50 pro-and anti-gun measures. Thanks to contact from NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters, we were able to prevent multiple anti-gun measures from being passed this session, including:

HF 694 /SF 894 would have implemented universal background checks in Minnesota on all firearms.
HF 2498 /SF 2048 would have stopped the current legal practice of carrying concealed in the Capitol.
HF 1634 /SF 1431 would have implemented a so-called “Red Flag” law allowing emergency seizure of firearms from individuals based upon hearsay and uncorroborated evidence without due process.
 

AZ: Remind Senators to Support School Pick-Up/Drop-Off Bill

House Bill 2840 allows law-abiding citizens to store their loaded firearms in their locked personal vehicles while parked on school grounds. This ensures that parents are able to pick-up and drop-off students without first having to stop and unload their firearms before driving onto school grounds, or deviating from their route to park off-campus. So-called “gun-free zones” are arbitrary boundaries that only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless while doing nothing to deter criminals.

Utah lawmakers in an “extraordinary session” on Wednesday approved two resolutions to declare support for Utahns’ Second Amendment rights and support for “exploring the possibility of declaring Utah a Second Amendment sanctuary” state.

The resolutions, approved separately by the House and Senate, came in response to growing concerns from constituents that the federal government under President Joe Biden’s administration would infringe on their Second Amendment rights.

USPSA has eight divisions, while Steel Challenge boasts 13 divisions, each with unique equipment rules to differentiate competitors.

A councilman’s hope to have San Clemente be the first city in Orange County to declare itself a “Second Amendment sanctuary city” has been postponed.

Councilman Gene James deferred a vote on his proposed resolution emphasizing gun ownership rights until the City Council’s June 1 meeting. The action Tuesday, May 18, followed discussion on the topic and a handful of comments from the public – most of which opposed the idea.
 

The West’s Asian Americans arm up for self-defense

Tens of thousands of Asian Americans, motivated by self-defense, bought their first guns over the past year, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, an industry trade association. A survey by the organization, which tracks background checks and gun purchases through retailers, estimated a 43% jump in sales to Asians nationwide in the first half of 2020. (Few surveys track Asian American gun ownership; on forms and in databases they are often relegated to an “other” category.) Recently, High Country News contacted 20 gun shops in the West to hear their perspective on this trend. Of those that replied, nine confirmed that they’d seen an uptick in sales to customers of East and Southeast Asian descent.
 

Taking Advantage of a Shift in the Landscape, Caniglia v. Strom

The Supreme Court’s ruling in Caniglia v. Strom could be a boon to Second Amendment supporters concerned about so-called “red flag” laws. In a unanimous ruling centered on the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable searches and seizures, the Supreme Court has now offered the chance to, at the very least, force reforms in those laws, if not outright block them.

This brief opinion authored by Associate Justice Clarence Thomas – it runs a grand total of four pages – laid the smackdown on the First Circuit. The concurring opinions are also noteworthy, as they seem to set some boundaries on what “reasonable” searches in the home are.

HBs 85 & 310 will protect the Second Amendment rights of Missourians against an overreaching federal government. The Second Amendment Preservation Act is meant to protect law-abiding gun owners from potential gun control legislation that could be passed in Washington, D.C. It states that laws and other actions that prohibit the manufacture, ownership, and use of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition within Missouri exceed the powers granted to the federal government. It also declares that all federal laws, acts, and orders that infringe on Missourians’ second amendment rights are invalid in the state.

A Tacoma man who shot and critically wounded a suspected car prowler will not face criminal charges.

The shooting took place just after 11 p.m. Sunday in the 2500 block of South G Street.

A 32-year-old man called 911 and told dispatchers he'd caught someone breaking into his vehicle and confronted them. That led to him shooting the 40-year-old prowler, who fled the scene after being shot but was followed by the vehicle owner.

The Utah House and Senate passed separate resolutions Wednesday reiterating their commitment to the constitutional right to bear arms and expressing their desire to explore the possibility of declaring the state a “Second Amendment Sanctuary.”

The nonbinding resolutions, approved in an “extraordinary session” that was called by legislators in defiance of Gov. Spencer Cox’s wishes, are intended to make a statement of values and do not carry the force of law.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The NRA has a point about the inadvisability of simply taking guns away from the populace. If that were possible, it would not disarm that small percentage of the population willing to break the law.... Punishing people who obey the law is backward thinking. — Hugh Downs, Veteran ABC newsman
