Saving Our School Children from Dangerous Judges in Ohio

The news media has bombarded us with messages saying that mass murder is common and increasing. Ordinary people like us feel a growing need to protect our families. That makes sense to me, but I’ve met some wonderful men and women who go further and put their lives on the line to save other people’s children. Until recently, we got it right that selected volunteer school staff may protect our kids the same way we would protect them if we were there with them in school.

That changed when a few supreme court justices in Ohio disarmed the defenders. Now, we have to fix that.

The Czech Parliament approved Wednesday a constitutional amendment recognizing the right to use arms in self-defense and to protect others, bucking the trend of stricter gun regulation in the European Union, CT24 television reported.

The upper house ratified the new article of the constitution, which had already passed the lower house.

The amendment states that “the right to defend one’s life or the life of others, even with the use of weapons, is guaranteed.”

Yesterday, SB 118, Constitutional Carry, was defeated due to several Senators reversing their initial vote of support on the bill. Two of the Senators who flip-flopped were Senators Patrick Connick (SD-8) and Louie Bernard (SD-31). These two actually had the nerve to speak on the Senate floor to try to explain their reason for betraying the Second Amendment. They admitted they did not do their “research” when they voted the first time in support of your right to carry. Apparently, this “research” entailed meeting with rogue, anti-gun sheriffs in their districts and succumbing to their pressure.

The NRA Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) filed a “friend of the court” brief in the first firearm-related Second Amendment case the U.S. Supreme Court has opted to hear in more than a decade.

The case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, challenges New York’s onerous concealed-carry restrictions. Specifically, it deals with the Empire State’s requirement that New Yorkers demonstrate “proper cause” to exercise the rights protected under the Second Amendment.
 

AZ: Goldwater Institute challenges ruling that raises taxes for Arizona shooting ranges

The court ruled in April that shooting ranges are “comparable” to “amusement parks.” The Goldwater Institute filed a friend of the court brief last week, arguing that shooting ranges are not circuses but places where people can go to learn a new skill and practice self-defense.

Timothy Sandefur, vice president for litigation at the Goldwater Institute, said it was important to clarify the distinction between amusement parks and shooting ranges because Arizona legislators amended tax law to remove “places of instruction” from the tax and replace it with “places of entertainment” about 30 years ago.

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League has filed an emergency motion in Federal Court seeking an immediate status conference in its lawsuit against Gov. Ned Lamont and Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection Commissioner James Rovella.

The Southbury-based gun advocacy group first filed their suit two months into the pandemic. State law requires that local law enforcement obtain a record of the fingerprints of a resident before granting a permit to purchase a firearm or ammunition. CCDL accused the state of interfering with that process.

Two men who allegedly tried to rob some shoppers on Melrose Avenue ended up with gunshot wounds when one of the victims opened fire on them in self-defense, police said.

The brazen daytime robbery happened Monday evening near the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Vista Street. The Los Angeles Police Department said that the two suspects exited from an idling Dodge Avenger and confronted the victim with a handgun in hand.

"Words were apparently exchanged, and the victim ultimately produces a handgun, apparently to defend himself and others in his group from the would-be robbery suspects," LAPD wrote in a press release.

WA: Kitsap's interim sheriff didn't sign letter supporting Second Amendment, but said he would have

A letter released last week and signed by 37 of the state’s 39 sheriffs affirming their commitment to “steadfastly protect' the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, along with other individual rights, does not bear the signature of Kitsap County's interim sheriff.

However, John Gese, who is hoping for the appointment to fill out the remainder of former Sheriff Gary Simpson's term after Gese served as undersheriff, said if he had permanent status he would have likely signed the letter from the Washington State Sheriffs' Association.

NY: Cato Weighs in on Most Significant Second Amendment Case in a Decade

More than a decade ago, the Supreme Court declared that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms for self‐​defense. Since then, lower courts have tried to restrict the right as much as possible.

New York prohibits its citizens from carrying a handgun outside the home without a license. And while New York permits concealed carry of a handgun with a license, it makes it virtually impossible for citizens to obtain a license because it requires every citizen to have a “proper cause” to carry a firearm.

U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) joined Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in filing an amicus brief for New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, a case currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Legislators — whether in Albany or Washington, D.C. — have neither the power nor the authority to second-guess the policy judgments made by the Framers and enshrined in the Constitution,” the senators wrote. “The Second Amendment’s guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms cannot be second-guessed by legislators across the country who simply disagree with the choice the Framers made.”

The Blair County Second Amendment Coalition and the Blair County Tea Party are pushing to get signatures to place Second Amendment sanctuary referendums on the November ballot.

The groups held a joint press conference Wednesday to raise awareness of their efforts toward making Blair County and its municipalities Second Amendment sanctuaries.

A Second Amendment sanctuary is a place that has adopted measures that oppose law enforcement agencies within that location from assisting in the enforcement of certain gun control measures, according to online sources.

It’s not about guns. It’s about citizenship.

That’s the takeaway from a 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling issued last week that strikes down a law preventing licensed firearms dealers from selling handguns to adults under 21. Analysts predict the case, Hirschfeld v. ATF, may reach the U.S. Supreme Court on appeal.

A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG), one of the nation’s largest female firearms organizations, has filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court urging justices to declare a New York state concealed carry gun law unconstitutional.

For the first time in several years, the United States Supreme Court will hear a major gun control case. On Monday the Court granted a writ of certiorari to New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Keith Corlett, over whether Corlett’s second amendment right was violated when New York denied his applications for a concealed carry license because the applicant did not show an "actual and articulable" need to carry.

Soon, three counties in Iowa could be what’s called “second amendment sanctuaries.”

That means county governments will not enforce federal laws they deem as a counter to their right to bear arms.

Jasper and Hardin Counties voted last week to become second amendment sanctuaries. The Cedar County Board of Supervisors plans to vote on becoming one next week.

Cedar County Sheriff Warren Wethington supports it.
