You hear banging at your front door. It is 6:30 on a Friday morning, and you wonder if one of your grandchildren is playing a prank on you, or maybe one of them is in trouble. You move toward the door when you see a stranger rip the outer screen door from your doorway. Now he smashes the glass panel in your front door and reaches in to turn the knob. You shout for him to stop, but he opens the door and comes inside.

Their relationship soured over the course of the brief walk to the parking lot and Coon charged at the man with a knife, prompting him to pull out a gun, Daughtry said. The woman then pulled out a gun and put a round in the chamber before pointing it at the man, Daughtry said.

In what Daughtry characterized as an apparent act of self-defense, the man then shot her multiple times. She was taken to a hospital in the city of Jackson. Her condition was not released.

Barrett is likely to be a crucial and possibly a deciding vote on two huge cases on hot-button culture war issues: abortion and guns. How she rules on those cases will illustrate the kind of justice she is and will be, and could end up becoming an enormous part of her legacy and the court’s.

Lewis County is inching toward becoming a “Second Amendment sanctuary,” joining a growing number of jurisdictions trying to fend off potential firearm restrictions with non-binding declarations.

And if Lewis County commissioners do go forward with what would be a symbolic resolution, it would fall in line with at least five local cities. Winlock, Morton, Mossyrock, Toledo and Napavine have all passed their own local Second Amendment proclamations.
 

IL: Local Men File Suit in Second Amendment Case

Three men have filed suit in an effort to have their firearm identification cards restored.

Plaintiffs Danny Rauschkolb, Jeffrey B. Bridges, and Timothy Hartweger have named Gregory Hacker, chief of the Illinois State Police firearms services. Also named is State’s Attorney Thomas, only in his official capacity and not accused of wrongdoing.

The suit states that Rauschkolb lost his license as a result of a pending felony charge. The charge was dismissed or otherwise resolved, the suit states.

He has asked for his license to be returned but to no avail, the suit states. The lack of action by the state police has violated his rights under the second and 14th amendments, Rauschkolb claims.

Jasper County could become the first county in Iowa to designate itself a “Second Amendment Sanctuary.”

This means the county wouldn’t enforce gun laws deemed unconstitutional.

The resolution proclaims the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office or any other county employee cannot enforce a federal or state order that, “infringes upon the constitutionally protected natural right of the people of Jasper County to keep and bear arms.”
 

Why Corpus Linguistics Does Not Undermine DC v. Heller (Much)

I recently participated in a conference on the application of legal corpus linguistics to the Second Amendment, a topic I've long wanted to make up my mind about. My tentative conclusion is that the corpus linguistics evidence does not undermine much of the Supreme Court's opinion in DC v. Heller. As part of the conference I have a blog post, Heller Survives the Corpus, at the Second Thoughts Blog, hosted by the Duke Center for Firearms Law.

Donald Trump Jr. is calling on voters to urge moderate lawmakers like Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and John Tester (Mont.) to oppose President Biden’s pick to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

During an address at a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) event in Dallas on Friday, the former president’s eldest son said that Biden’s ATF nominee, David Chipman, “worked actively for the anti-gun lobby.”

A California judge decided victims of a 2019 synagogue shooting near San Diego that killed one worshiper and wounded three can sue the manufacturer of the semiautomatic rifle and the gun shop that sold it to the teenage gunman, according to a newspaper report.

Superior Court Judge Kenneth Medel said Wednesday that victims and families in the Poway, California, synagogue shooting have adequately alleged that Smith & Wesson, the nation's largest gunmaker, knew its AR-15-style rifle could be easily modified into a machine-gun-like or an assault weapon in violation of state law.

The National Rifle Association went to the Federal Court of Appeals on Wednesday after a judge upheld Florida law prohibiting people under the age of 21 from buying guns last month.

After being passed in 2018, the NRA, which challenged the constitutionality of the law, submitted a notice to the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta to appeal the decision of US District Court Secretary Mark Walker.

Stephannie Weidner has been coming up on my Facebook page as “someone you might know” for a long time. I’m friends with her husband, Neil. She and I also have a lot of friends in common. Finally, we got the chance to meet at the end of the MAG40 class in Sioux Falls, SD. Neil and I and a number of us met for drinks and decompression after the classes ended. She was also highly recommended by some of the participants in The Mingle’s head by Shelley Hill, RSWC #089.

While the legacy media is quick to sensationalize every incident involving misuse of firearms, they just as quickly downplay or completely dismiss reports of lawful self-defense with firearms, and the Second Amendment Foundation is openly challenging the establishment press to explain why.

Coloradans since last year have bought guns at such a rapid pace that gun store owners struggled to keep their shelves stocked.

Bristlecone Shooting, Training and Retail Center in Lakewood generally carries several hundred guns at any time, but during the pandemic, the shop’s stock sometimes dropped to as few as 10, co-owner Jacquelyn Clark said. The store’s supply of guns has improved, but it’s still limiting how much ammunition people can buy.

The use of an ankle holster for concealed carry of a subcompact or ultra-compact handgun as a primary carry firearm can be a divisive topic for some.

Many self-defense experts will advise that it is difficult to draw an ankle gun quickly without considerable practice, and it will always be awkward from a standing position.
 

MA: The Creepy Trend That Sparked a Highway Standoff With a Black Militia

Days after a bizarre armed highway standoff in Massachusetts involving a group called Rise Of The Moors, prosecutors face an unusual problem: at least two of the 11 defendants in the case refuse to identify themselves.

“I am a free Moor, a national, a free, living man,” one unidentified defendant told a judge during his arraignment on Tuesday.

The testimony was faux-legal nonsense. But in some seemingly widening circles, this jargon verges on religion. Over the past year, from Massachusetts to Washington, a growing slate of court officials and bystanders have found themselves muddling through conspiratorial legalese from people who claim to be “Moors.”

Gov. Tony Evers vetoed two bills Friday that would have allowed local governments to delay drawing new district lines and attempted to prevent federal gun laws from being enforced in Wisconsin.

Evers vetoed a bill that would have allowed city councils and county boards to delay drawing new district lines until after the spring 2022 election. Supporters of the measure pointed to delays in U.S. Census Bureau data that local governments use to draw new districts.

Yesterday, several Louisiana Sheriffs stood with liberal democratic Governor John Bel Edwards against your Second Amendment rights. They believe it is more important to go to Baton Rouge for a photo-op with the Governor, than to be in their own parishes doing their job.

NRA members are particularly disappointed in Sheriff Craig Webre of Lafourche Parish, Sheriff Sid Gautreaux of East Baton Rouge Parish, Sheriff Marlin Gusman of Orleans Parish, and Sheriff Willy Marin of St. James Parish for not only showing up at this photo-op, but speaking out against Louisianans’ right to keep and bear arms and your right to self-defense.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
What is ominous is the ease with which some people go from saying that they don't like something to saying that the government should forbid it. When you go down that road, don't expect freedom to survive very long. — Thomas Sowell
