You might think that “proper cause” would include the exercise of the Second Amendment right to bear arms for self-defense. But you’d be wrong. In Orwellian New (York) speak, “proper cause” means whatever government officials want it to mean. As explained in Kachalsky v. County of Westchester (2nd Cir. 2012), one must “demonstrate a special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community.” A desire “to protect one’s person and property” and “living or being employed in a high-crime area” do not suffice.

The family of a white Nebraska bar owner who killed himself after being charged in the fatal shooting of a Black man during 2020 protests over racial injustice is suing local prosecutors, alleging their comments led to his suicide.

Jake Gardner’s parents sued the Douglas County Attorney’s Office, its top prosecutor and a special prosecutor Monday in federal court, seeking an unspecified amount in compensatory and punitive damages, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

A Fort Smith man who stopped a shooting rampage in May by killing the gunman won’t face criminal charges, prosecutors said.

Sebastian County Prosecutor Dan Shue announced his decision Wednesday in a letter to Police Chief Danny Baker. Shue said after reviewing the investigative reports surrounding the shooting, his office concluded Wallace A. West, 58, was justified under Arkansas law in the fatal shooting of Zachary Brian Arnold, 26.
 

ABC News Claims Defensive Gun Uses Are 'Gun Violence'

Hawkins continues, explaining that ABCNews not only is focusing on certain urban (Democrat-run) areas as examples of American “gun violence”, but that the “national statistics” ABC uses come from the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), which doesn’t distinguish defensive uses of guns against violent attackers from violent attacks perpetrated by people with guns, and which engages in other curious forms of statistical magic.

Rather than defending individuals against unconstitutional regulations – particularly, poor people who are victimised by gun laws – the ACLU appears determined to undermine their constitutional rights. Louise Melling, the ACLU’s deputy legal director, says that raising the minimum age for all gun ownership to 21 and bringing in a ban on assault weapons ‘raise[s] no civil-liberties concerns’. Most egregiously, she seems open to introducing so-called red-flag laws. These laws authorise court orders that prohibit people from owning guns if they are judged to be a threat to themselves or others. Red-flag laws have been criticised for being open to misuse. But for Melling, they can be ‘a reasonable way to further public safety’.

We are watching a very sad situation in Cuba. The Cuban people want to be free and control their own lives. Their government beats or shoots them for seeking freedom.

Our forefathers were smart people and realized some people desire to dictate to others how to live their lives. Our forefathers gave us the Second Amendment, which states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. With more than 78 million gun owners in the United States, it would be impossible for a dictator to suddenly take control of our lives.

The News 4 Digging Deeper Team requested an interview with the County Attorney. They sent a statement that said in part:

"After extensive and careful review of available evidence, the Pima County Attorney's office (PCOA) has declined to charge David Rivera."

News 4 Tucson obtained police reports that said, "David stated he feared for his life and grabbed a handgun he had next to him and fired at the male with the gun." Rivera also told police that "the male in the front passenger seat produced a silver gun and pointed it at him."
 

WV: Gun violence is caused by people, not objects

“Gun Violence” means nothing. You cannot attribute actions to inanimate objects. Everybody knows it, but everybody says it. Words used to have very specific meanings but now mean whatever you want if you’re in the driver’s seat. It’s like the story ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’. Although foolish, you better agree or face his wrath. Today you get canceled.

Obviously guns are not violent. Remember Shane? “A Gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.” I miss logic like that.

A federal appeals court on Wednesday vacated a lower court decision last year in favor of a gun owners and second amendment activists who complained in a suit against the state that an emergency pandemic order suspending fingerprinting of gun permit applicants violated the Constitutional protection of gun ownership.

The lower court decision on June 8, 2020 ordered the state police to resume fingerprinting of prospective gun licensees, something the state had planned to do a week later.

Prosecutors have dropped a murder charge against a Lancaster man accused of fatally shooting his brother

Leon Gilmore, 49, was initially charged with one count of murder, an unclassified felony, in connection with the death of his brother, Jesse, 51.

The shooting took place in the early hours of July 18 at an apartment in the 800 block of North Roosevelt Avenue. Leon had called 911 at 2:52 a.m. to report that his brother had been shot. Jesse was transported to Fairfield Medical Center where he later died.

According to Fairfield County Prosecutor Kyle Witt, current evidence suggests Jesse had allegedly fired a shotgun into the residence in Leon's direction prior to Leon firing at Jesse.

On July 22, Black Attorneys of Legal Aid, Bronx Defenders and public defenders spread across the state filed an amicus brief in support of the challenge, claiming it unfairly affects their clients, most of whom are poor and Black or Latino.

Although New York allows for permits to carry concealed guns with a license, the state law makes it virtually impossible for the ordinary law-abiding citizen to obtain one, both the lawyer and gun-rights groups argue.
 

Biden Reveals His True Goal: To Ban Most Guns

Presumably, PolitiFact believes that Biden’s proposed ban would only apply to guns based on their “standard magazine” size. But Biden himself wasn’t ambiguous. He talked about banning pistols based on their “ability to fire” or that “can hold” so many rounds. When he mentions “military-style weapons including pistols,” the president is talking about the gun themselves. He also wants to ban so-called “assault rifles” regardless of how many rounds their standard magazines hold, and he lumps those guns together with pistols. Over 85% of handguns in the U.S. are semiautomatics and would be banned if Biden has his way.
 

NV: Federal judge declines to block Nevada ‘ghost gun’ ban

A federal judge on Monday rejected an attempt to block enforcement of Nevada’s ban on so-called “ghost guns,” including the sale of guns without serial numbers and unfinished weapons for self-assembly.

Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC), a Second Amendment advocacy non-profit, along with several Nevada gun owners, sought a preliminary injunction to halt AB 286 from going into effect. This bill was passed by the state legislature earlier this year to promote increased transparency and traceability in gun sales. One of the bill’s sponsors explained during the session that ghost guns are of particular concern to Nevadans because “one of the largest unfinished receiver kit companies in the nation, Polymer80, Inc. is based [in Nevada].”

Act 1024 makes it legal to carry a concealed handgun in many local government properties. Act 638 and Act 693 specify that city parks and sports fields are included.

Act 809 removes the requirement that an employee who leaves their gun in their car while at work must keep it in a locked container.

Act 433 repeals a ban on guns in certain parts of the state, including Benton and Carroll counties.

Act 250 loosens the rules on when a person is allowed to use physical force in self-defense.

After a year of contested elections, riots, and the COVID-19 pandemic, a tsunami of states have adopted, or are considering adopting, permitless concealed handgun carry laws (also known as “constitutional carry laws”). Currently, twenty-one states have enacted permitless carry laws, and at least half a dozen more are considering doing the same. More states have adopted permitless carry than have legalized adult recreational use of marijuana.

U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson took aim this week at a proposed federal regulation that targets pistol stabilizing braces. Hudson led a Capitol Hill news conference Tuesday drawing attention to the issue.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco, and Explosives proposed the rule in June. The news conference encouraged people to submit comments to the bureau opposing the rule.

“The Biden administration’s ATF is attacking our Second Amendment and attacking our veterans,” Hudson said. “Crime is up, and Republicans are prepared to address that. But Democrats are determined to go after law-abiding citizens and our Second Amendment.”

ACLU tweet on Second Amendment and Bill of Rights is radical leftist propaganda

It's been years since the American Civil Liberties Union could convince anyone that it is not a left-wing organization, but a recent tweet from the organization shows just how radically leftward the group is heading.

Gone are the days of the ACLU in Skokie, Illinois, only to be replaced by the contemporary iteration influenced by radical leftist thought adhering to core tenets of critical race theory. While some may say such a classification is hyperbole, there is little other explanation after the group’s recent tweet stating: “Racism is foundational to the Second Amendment and its inclusion in the Bill of Rights.”

One could read that and assume they don’t need to bother with registering a suppressor - that would be wrong.

“You 100% can still get in trouble federally,” Kolisek said. “Like the cannabis thing. On the federal level it’s still illegal, but the states have determined that it’s not as obviously the federal government hasn’t stepped in but they could.”

Kolisek said he’s getting questions about this all the time, and it’s no wonder given how the law is phrased.

So how are you supposed to buy a suppressor in Texas that won’t land you behind bars in federal jail? The same as always.

You’ll need to file form four with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and pay a $200 fee.
