I'm An NRA Mom

In April, a headline in The New York Times read, “Bloomberg Plans a $50 Million Challenge to the NRA.” While it’s not the first time the infamous former mayor of the Big Apple has flexed his money muscle to battle the National Rifle Association, it’s certainly a significant sum.

In a joint attack on Second Amendment rights, Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action group is now joining forces in a supposed “grassroots” movement—Everytown for Gun Safety—with the aim of targeting America’s mothers. (Note that the group, funded from the top down by Bloomberg’s millions, apparently doesn’t understand the meaning of “grassroots.”)

LA: Louisiana Hunters May Now Carry Any Caliber Firearm During Archery Season

On Monday, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal signed SB 212, a bill that removed the restrictions preventing hunters from carrying larger-caliber firearms during archery season.

Previously, bowhunters were allowed to carry certain firearms for protection, but were restricted to certain calibers, such as .22 or smaller. This severely limited the options available to hunters for self-defense, and many called for the restriction to be removed so that larger calibers could be carried as well.
 

DC: Appellate Court Again Blocks Law-Abiding D.C. Residents’ Right to Bear Arms

Armed criminals in the Nation’s Capitol are breathing easier since Monday when a federal appeals court reinstated the District of Columbia’s sham concealed carry licensing law, a move that again prohibits the law-abiding from exercising their right to bear arms.

The court’s order allows the District to resume enforcing a provision of D.C. law found unconstitutional and blocked by a lower court in the case of Wrenn v. District of Columbia.
 

The Firearm Is The Symbol Of Individual Sovereignty

Even with the combat technology wielded by our armies today, the single person firearm is more than just a symbol of individual sovereignty.

Firearms in private hands function to protect the balance of power between the people and their government.

Our Founding Fathers could not envision the extent to which science could take us, but their principles hold firm through the centuries.

Former Gov. Jeb Bush, who turned Florida into a model of gun ownership a decade ago, is sticking to his gun-rights stance in the 2016 presidential race.

"Florida is a pro-gun state," Bush asserted while campaigning in Nevada recently, proudly touting his A+ grading by the National Rifle Association.
 

CO: Divided Court Demotes Second Amendment to Second Class Status

On June 26, a divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit reversed a lower court ruling that had held the U.S. Postal Service could not completely ban the possession of firearms in its parking lots.

The case concerns Tab Bonidy, a Colorado man who lives in a rural area, does not get mail delivery at his residence, and must retrieve his mail from a box in a post office lobby that is open to the public at all times and has no security for visitors. A concealed carry license holder, Bonidy argued that he has a Second Amendment right to carry his firearm for self-protection when retrieving his mail, despite a Postal Service regulation broadly banning firearms from all postal property.
 

DC: D.C. deluged with concealed carry applications after court overturned gun law

Following a federal court’s rejection of its gun ordinance in May, Washington, D.C. saw a profound spike in the number of people applying to the city for a concealed carry permit.

Concealed carry applications increased threefold in the weeks immediately following Judge Frederick Scullin’s ruling against the “good cause” portion of the city’s gun law — a restrictive clause that Scullin declared unconstitutional and ordered the city council to revise.

This week, Governor Bobby Jindal (R) signed three pro-Second Amendment bills that were passed during the 2015 session of the Louisiana Legislature which ended on June 11.

Please take a moment to send an email thanking Governor Jindal for signing HB 446, SB 133 and SB 212 into law and for supporting our Second Amendment rights and Louisiana’s sporting heritage. House Bill 446, sponsored by state Representative Blake Miguez (R-New Iberia), authorizes firearm accident prevention and safety instruction based on NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program for elementary school students.

Constitutional ignorance

The nation’s demagogues and constitutionally ignorant are using the Charleston, S.C., AME church shooting to attack the Second Amendment’s “right of the people to keep and bear Arms.” A couple of years ago, President Barack Obama said, “I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations.” That’s a vision shared by many Americans, namely that the Constitution’s framers gave us the Second Amendment to protect our rights to go deer and duck hunting, do a bit of skeet shooting, and protect ourselves against criminals.

On June 24 2015, Breitbart News reported that a Hollywood, Florida, Domino’s Pizza delivery driver shot and killed one of two alleged armed robbers who demanded his money.

Days later, the Outdoor Channel reported that the driver was placed on “paid leave” during “an investigation, and has been offered counseling.” Domino’s Pizza has also “reiterated their ‘no guns’ policy” in the wake of the incident.

Early this morning, the Delaware General Assembly adjourned from their legislative Session.

Below are updates of important pieces of legislation that affect your second amendment rights:

The substitute bill for Senate Bill 83 has now passed both the Delaware Senate and House of Representatives. SB 83, as previously reported, was an anti-gun bill designed to bypass due process to deprive gun owners of their rights in domestic abuse proceedings.
 

NJ: It May Be Too Late for Chris Christie

On Second Amendment rights, for example, Christie’s record is concerning. In the mid 1990s, he supported the federal “assault weapons” ban; in 2009, he said he “opposes attempts to permit conceal carry laws in New Jersey,” and more recently, he expressed support for the state’s one-gun-per-month law. Ironically, immediately before announcing his presidential bid, he suddenly found his inner NRA member and moved to loosen New Jersey’s ridiculously strict gun laws. Pardon our skepticism.

If it sounds like we’re repeating ourselves, it’s because we are. For the proverbial umpteenth time, Fact Checkers at a prominent newspaper have denounced a lie being told by a supporter of expanded background checks on gun sales.

Today (Monday), the Washington Post gave Four Pinnochios to U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) for repeating a claim originated by Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety group, that there has been an average of one school shooting per week since the December 2012 crime at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

CA: Is widespread gun ownership worth the price of more violence?

The horrific killings in Charleston, S.C., once again raise the question of whether we would be better off with more armed citizens or dramatically fewer. This debate largely has been forgotten by Congress, but the battle rages on in the courts as the National Rifle Association challenges any effort at gun control, including prudent measures such as San Francisco’s safe gun-storage law and California’s efforts to restrict gun-carrying to those who have a particular need and are most likely to be responsible. Resolution to this debate will depend on whether data and concern for public welfare — or mythical visions of gun effectiveness — triumph.

Attorney General Marty Jackley, Secretary of State Shantel Krebs and SD Legislative Sponsor Tom Brunner announced today that as of July 1, 2015, South Dakota has begun the process of implementing the program to meet certain other state’s weapons requirements for individuals who have successfully completed a qualifying handgun course and have passed a fingerprint based background check. The enhanced concealed carry option does not replace or affect South Dakota’s existing concealed carry permits; it simply provides an additional and voluntary option for our citizens that wish to satisfy additional heightened requirements of certain other states.

There were several bright sides to the last session for Bell including an expansion of gun rights with open carry and concealed campus carry.

“The advancement for Second Amendment rights were big steps,” Bell said. “Most citizens, I don’t think, realize how long Texas has been without open carry or when it lost it. If you want to see when it lost it, it was following the Civil War at the hands of a government that was not duly elected by the people.”
