“He always had the gun with him, and we were always like, “What are you going to do with that?” said Elliot Darling. “And he was like, ‘Well one day, you never know.’ And of course, that one day came, and he was prepared.”

Hurley is being called a hero for reportedly taking down a gunman who killed an Arvada police officer.

Wednesday night, sources told FOX31 the Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) is investigating the possibility that a responding officer shot Hurley.

Self-defense experts say concealed carry owners are often faced with split-second decisions in situations like this.

Last week, Gov. Jared Polis joined lawmakers, advocates and loved ones of victims of gun violence at the state Capitol to sign into law a package of reforms aimed at preventing certain people from getting their hands on guns. Now that the dust has settled on the historic year for more, stricter gun laws, here’s what you should know about Colorado’s gun laws.
 

CA: Ninth Circuit En Banc Panel Hears Challenge to Ban on Standard Capacity Magazines

An 11-judge panel, sitting en banc, heard oral arguments in Duncan v. Bonta (formerly Duncan v. Becerra). The CRPA lawsuit, which challenges California’s flat ban on magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, was the first successful constitutional challenge to bans on so-called “large-capacity magazines” in the country. But with a likely unfriendly en banc panel—composed of 7 judges appointed by Democrats and just 4 appointed by Republicans—that victory hangs in the balance.
 

Biden Democrats Want The Failed Australian Gun Ban Plan

Democrats believe that those laws didn’t work because they were not restrictive enough. And yet they continue to claim they are not asking for total disarmament.

The Democrats’ current idea of compromise is to permit only a few trusted people to own a single-shot firearm that would be infrequently used under highly controlled circumstances. And, none of those circumstances will include self-defense.
 

CA: California 9th Circuit Heard Arguments in Magazine Ban Case

California argued that banning “large-capacity magazines” was necessary to reduce gun crimes where more than 10 rounds of ammo were used. Those crimes are relatively rare. But at the same time, California argued that the ban is trivial because law-abiding citizens rarely use 10 rounds of ammo in self-defense situations. In other words, California argued that rarely occurring events justified its authority to ban the magazines, but the ban was trivial because law-abiding citizens rarely need 10 rounds of ammo to defend themselves. Judge VanDyke then accused California’s counsel of making a “heads we win, tails you lose” argument by “using rarity in two different ways.”

Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., is sponsoring a bill that would categorize the firearms industry as “critical infrastructure” and those who make, sell and repair guns and ammunition as essential workers.

The bill has support from some Columbia Basin officials, including Moses Lake Police Chief Kevin Fuhr.

Newhouse introduced on Tuesday the “Second Amendment is Essential Act” to amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 and the Patriot Act, passed nearly 20 years ago following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, to add the manufacture, importation and selling of firearms and ammunition to the list of businesses and industries essential to U.S. safety and security in times of emergency as currently defined by federal law.

President Biden in remarks Wednesday said his crime prevention strategy would focus on strengthening background checks, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and boosting community policing.

Biden met with state and local leaders and law enforcement officials ahead of his remarks to talk crime prevention strategy, amid a surge in violence in cities across the U.S.

Both Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland, who spoke before him, pointed to a historic rise in crime in the summertime, and said that rise "may be more pronounced" as the nation comes out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Red flag" gun laws--which allow law enforcement to temporarily remove firearms from a person at risk of harming themselves or others--are gaining attention at the state and federal levels, but are under scrutiny by legislators who deem them unconstitutional. A new analysis by legal scholars at NYU School of Global Public Health describes the state-by-state landscape for red flag legislation and how it may be an effective tool to reduce gun violence, while simultaneously protecting individuals' constitutional rights.

Chip Roy (TX-21) and his colleagues from the Texas congressional delegation sent a letter to Governor Abbott in support of the Governor’s efforts to resist these unconstitutional infringements and urging him to continue to fight against the Biden administration’s gun-grabbing agenda.

Sonny Hostin, one of the show’s most progressive panelists shocked viewers with her about-face on guns this week. The former lawyer, historically critical of 2nd Amendment rights, shocked viewers on Wednesday morning when she shared, “A lot of my friends and family members have begun to purchase guns, they’ve begun gun training and, I think, a lot of it has to do with the increase in violence against Black people.” This is in stark contrast to what she said three months ago to the day. “I don’t think we can any longer equate freedom with the unfettered right to own assault rifles.” She bolstered this opinion with an emotional plea, “I feel like a hostage to the selfish people that insist on owning these weapons.”
 

WI: Wisconsin Senate passes 'Second Amendment sanctuary' legislation limiting federal gun laws

The Senate passed Assembly Bill 293 on a voice vote. It is meant to exempt firearms in Wisconsin from federal gun laws and regulations. Similar measures have been found unconstitutional in other states because state laws can't override federal ones.

If signed into law and deemed constitutional, the legislation would prevent Wisconsin law enforcement officials from confiscating guns from those convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence offenses, according to nonpartisan lawyers for the Legislature. That's because there is no state law that corresponds with a federal law allowing guns to be taken from such offenders.

On Wednesday, Change the Ref, an organization aiming to raise awareness about mass shootings, released a video titled "The Lost Class," which showed Lott speaking to a chorus of empty chairs on June 4, an event he thought was a rehearsal for a prominent institution's graduation commencement. The footage featured clips of Lott talking about gun background checks as the group panned over the empty chairs and insisted thousands of high school students die from firearm violence annually, a number Change the Ref says would be improved by more laws regulating gun sales.

Texas HB 1927 – the new constitutional carry bill – was just signed by Gov. Greg Abbott on June 16. As its nickname suggests, this law recognizes the constitutional right to bear arms by removing the requirement that Texans obtain a license before they are allowed to carry a handgun. As Ellis County Judge, I believe that constitutional carry makes sense for Ellis County citizens and for Texas.

Texas has joined another multistate coalition defending Second Amendment rights, this time asking the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to strike down California’s assault weapons ban in the case of Miller v. Bonta.

California is appealing a recent decision by U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez, who ruled that the state’s 1989 ban violates the Second Amendment. Gov. Gavin Newsom said the ruling was “a direct threat to public safety and innocent Californians.”
 

Feds can’t compel states to enforce restrictions on guns or immigrants

The law says such rules “shall be invalid to this state, shall not be recognized by this state, shall be specifically rejected by this state, and shall not be enforced by this state.” It authorizes injunctions against law enforcement agencies that violate this new policy, along with civil penalties of $50,000 “per occurrence.”

In response to anxious questions from the U.S. Justice Department, Parson and Schmitt said the law’s restrictions and remedies apply only to state and local officials. That means they do not interfere with federal enforcement of federal laws — the same point the Times made in defense of sanctuary cities and states.
 

CT: Gun Groups Drop Suit Over Connecticut High-Capacity Magazine Law

Gun rights groups and Connecticut residents reached an agreement with the state that effectively ends their challenge to a 2013 law that restricted ownership of large-capacity gun magazines.

Susan Ross and Domenic Basile, as well as the Connecticut Citizens Defense League Inc. and the Second Amendment Foundation Inc., sued state officials in March 2020. The threat of enforcement of the law keeps plaintiffs from loading magazines to full capacity and limits their ability to keep and bear arms in the process, the complaint says.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. — St. George Tucker, in his edition of 'Blackstone's Commentaries,' 1:300 (1803).
