For over 200 years, U.S. courts viewed the Second Amendment's "right to keep and bear arms" as being linked to militia service. That changed in 2008 when Justice Antonin Scalia's majority opinion in D.C. v. Heller determined that the right of the people delegated in the Second Amendment "unambiguously refers to individual rights, not 'collective' rights, or rights that may be exercised only through participation in some corporate body."

There are a ton of myths floating around about using a front sight focus on a self-defense pistol…myths like:

You must always use a front sight focus.
You definitely won’t be able to see your front sight in a high-stress situation, so you shouldn’t waste your time practicing with your front sight.
Front-sight focus is too slow.
“I am focusing on the front sight!”
Let’s take a quick look at them.

A 45-year-old McKee resident has been released from jail after more than five months after a grand jury declined to indict him in connection with a shooting death on Thanksgiving Day 2020.

According to the Jackson County Detention Center and Commonwealth Attorney Gary Gregory’s office, the grand jury returned a ‘no true bill’ against Clint Cox and he was released from jail May 5.

A ‘no true bill’ means the grand jury did not find enough evidence to support a criminal indictment on murder or some related charge.
 

CO: Colorado Bill Highlights Importance of Preemption Laws

A measure recently approved by a Colorado Senate committee would repeal Colorado’s firearm preemption law—a dangerous action that would undo the years of hard work the NRA Institute for Legislation Action (ILA) has expended shepherding such laws to implementation.

The measure is S.B. 256, which would repeal the law in Colorado that prevents localities from passing their own gun-control measures, similar to the preemption laws on the books in most states.

Mr. Marcus wants assault weapons banned: “No one needs a weapon for self-defense or for amusement that spews out multi-dozens of bullets every minute. These weapons are made for mass slaughter and nothing else.” Apparently Mr. Marcus doesn’t know that “assault weapons” is a politically invented term. The “AR” in AR-15 stands for ArmaLite rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. “AR” does not stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.” The AR-15, like all semiautomatic firearms, fires only one round with each pull of the trigger.

Before the summer of 2020, going to the gun range was a pastime for Valee Penn, something she did for fun with her husband. But after the wave of civil unrest prompted by violence and police brutality against Black Americans brought protests to her neighborhood, Penn decided it was time to get serious. She bought a Glock 19 and a Smith & Wesson revolver.

Senator Marco Rubio Supports the Second Amendment, But . . .

At 5-feet 10-inches, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is the same height as Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), but that’s not all the two have in common.

Neither Rubio nor Feinstein support the Second Amendment.

While Feinstein is open an upfront about her anti-rights passion, Rubio is riding the fence. Several bills he’s introduced clearly infringe upon the Second Amendment, but he still tries to hide his anti-rights zealotry in communications with constituents.

House Bill 85, which now goes to Gov. Mike Parson for his signature, makes it illegal to register or track firearms. The “Second Amendment Preservation Act” also holds that state law supersedes any federal laws on guns, nullifying any federal restrictions on gun ownership within Missouri’s borders. Any police department that employs someone who knowingly deprives a Missouri citizen of their Second Amendment rights could be fined up to $50,000 — per employee.

The regents voted unanimously Wednesday to challenge the parts of House Bill 102 that would allow students and staff who meet safety certifications to carry concealed firearms without a permit on campuses starting June 1.

I Carry: Ruger LCR22 Revolver in a PHLster City Special Holster

We’ve run a number of articles on ShootingIllustrated.com about the .22 LR for self-defense, and while we believe there are significantly more effective calibers out there, one thing that stood out in the comments to these articles is that there is a decidedly non-zero number of people that do, in fact, carry a .22 LR for defense. There’s a number of reasons for this, but most boil down to recoil aversion and hand-strength. In the case of those with hand-strength problems, often a revolver is mentioned as a better option for .22 LR. This is why we have a Ruger LCR22 for today’s kit.

This week, House Democrats on the Rules Committee rejected an amendment offered by Rep. Hudson to include H.R. 38 in a bill to boost security in our nation’s capital. With America reopening from COVID-19, Rep. Hudson argued that law-abiding citizens should be able to protect themselves in Washington, D.C. and across the country. Yesterday, Hudson announced that H.R. 38 was included in the Republican Study Committee’s 2022 budget proposal, signaling that this legislation would be a top priority if control of the House changes hands again in next year’s election. This also comes as U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) led a large group of his colleagues recently in introducing similar legislation in the U.S. Senate as well.

We take cars more seriously than we do guns. The fact I can buy an assault rifle at a gun show in Texas without a background check but cannot yet import the Nissan GTR sports car — renowned for its performance and cult following — due to “safety concerns” and regulations, should indicate something is seriously wrong with the way we treat guns in this country.

Governor Spencer Cox said he was OK with the legislature passing resolutions exploring whether the state should ban critical race theory and declare Utah a "Second Amendment sanctuary."

"They actually did what I asked them to do," the governor said of the Utah State Legislature, later adding: "If you look at those resolutions, that’s basically what they did was say 'Hey, we want to work on this, we have some concerns.'"

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright is among local supporters of the "Open Carry with Training Act" signed into law this week by Gov. Henry McMaster, believing it helps further protect the Second Amendment.

"I love the fact we are following along with the Second Amendment," Wright said. "I think it is the responsibility of the person who wants to carry a weapon now to make sure they are trained properly."

And the potential damage won’t stop there. Next term, which begins in October, the court will pass judgment not only on Mississippi’s draconian abortion law, but also on a new and far-reaching Second Amendment appeal from New York.

Here’s a closer look at the key cases.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
