Gun Owners of America (GOA) is supporting Congressional efforts for a federal investigation into the rogue St. Louis Circuit Attorney for abuse of power and for disregarding Mark and Patricia McCloskey's Second Amendment-protected right of self-defense.

Representative Jodey Arrington (R-TX) was joined by 16 Representatives in sending a letter to Attorney General William Barr in regard to Kim Gardner. Their correspondence demands Gardner be investigated for abusing her power and for recklessly infringing Constitutionally-protected rights.

Presumptive Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ use of rhetorical devices like “mandatory buyback” is hiding the true extent of her intentions to confiscate American civilians’ legally-obtained firearms, according to Second Amendment activist Colion Noir.

Noir told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday that Harris’ past statements show she is not “inherently anti-gun,” she just wants them in the hands of government agents rather than civilians.
 

VA: National Guard is a formal militia

The Constitution mentions militias in several places (Article 1, Sec. 8; Article 2, Sec 2; Second and Fifth Amendments). I believe we have a formal militia called the National Guard. Most well-known is the Second Amendment which starts “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…” I do not believe these so-called militias are “well regulated” or “necessary.”
 

Election will determine future of private gun ownership

This past week, President Trump claimed the election will determine the future of private gun ownership in the United States.

He’s right. And Montana voters’ choice for the U.S. Senate looks set to determine its balance of power. If they gain control, Joe Biden and Senate Democrats promise to eliminate the filibuster, allowing them to pass any legislation they want with a simple majority vote.

But the Senate won’t just determine what gun control legislation gets passed — it will also determine what judges get confirmed.

There's a fight between the state and the City of Columbia over its recent gun ordinance. The South Carolina Attorney General believes the city is breaking the law.

“We’re simply saying the City of Columbia is violating state law which speaks to past laws the General Assembly has specifically, in state law, reserved for itself to pass," said South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson.

President Donald Trump on Thursday endorsed Cynthia Lummis for Wyoming’s open U.S. Senate seat.

Lummis is the front-runner in a 10-candidate race for the Republican nomination for the seat being vacated by Sen. Mike Enzi, who is retiring.

“Lummis is a friend of mine and a great woman,” Trump said in a pair of tweets posted Thursday evening. “She is running for Senate in the very Special State of Wyoming. Cynthia is Strongly for our Military, our Vets, and protection of the Second Amendment. She will be a great Senator, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

“After he was chased by a crowd at the protest. He was struck with a skateboard, he was struck with fists. He was threatened. There were shouts in the crowd before this incident that ‘he’s a cop, kill him.’ He was then pursued by multiple people and it wasn’t until he was struck multiple times and did fear for his life that he shot back in self-defense,” Jason Bowles, Baca’s attorney, said.

The Spotsylvania Board of Supervisors approved a resolution stating the county will not enact gun prohibitions on government property.

The resolution passed by a 6–1 vote Tuesday, with Supervisor Deborah Frazier casting the lone dissenting vote. Prior to the vote, Frazier asked if the resolution would allow people to carry guns in courtrooms.

County Attorney Karl Holsten said the resolution would not allow that. He explained that the law pertains only to county-run facilities, adding that chief judges determine rules for courtrooms. He said the School Board can set its own rules on such matters concerning schools.
 

VA: A Brief History of the Virginia Citizens Defense League

Paul Moog founded the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) as the Northern Virginia Citizens Defense League (NVCDL) in 1994. Up until the 1990s, most states were “may issue” or “no issue” states when it came to issuing a permit to carry a concealed firearm. May issue means that the gun owner needs to show “good cause” why they need to carry a concealed firearm. The applicant would need to prove that there were credible threats to their safety, or that they regularly transport large amounts of money or valuables to qualify for a permit. No issue means that the state will not issue a license to conceal carry a firearm to the gun owner at all.

May 21, 2020, at about 10:53 p.m, in Phoenix's Ahwatukee Foothills neighborhood, officers are responding to a noise complaint thinly disguised as a domestic violence incident. The complainant is desperate to get to sleep because he has to get up to go to work. He tells the dispatcher at 10:18 it is a domestic altercation. The exact time of the second call is not given, but the caller says it is a half-hour after the first call.

In the second call, the caller makes clear this is a noise complaint. He is asked if this is a male and a female in a verbal. From what police have released of the call (includes graphic video of the shooting) :
 

The 3D-Printed Gun Isn’t Coming. It’s Already Here.

3D-printed guns fall into the larger category of homemade firearms, known colloquially as “ghost guns” — an established, if slightly niche, part of gun culture, especially in America. The U.S. is home to a long tradition of DIY gunsmithing that stretches back to the Colonial era, when local blacksmiths forged musket barrels as well as horseshoes. Eli Whitney, the inventor of the cotton gin, also pioneered the “interchangeable parts” method of production, which was used by legions of individual craftsmen to manufacture thousands of muskets during the 1790s.

It prohibits the possession of firearms, open or concealed, in official City-owned locations such as buildings (including City Hall and the Community Center), parks, facilities and streets when City-sponsored events are occurring.

For those who might want to carry a little bitty rimfire gun for self defense (not my cup of tea, but who asked me?), Paul Harrell recently reviewed Ruger’s LCP2 chambered for 22 Long Rifle (LR).

He dives right into pointing out some differences between this model and the 380 ACP version of the LCP2: The 22LR version has a manual safety and a magazine “safety” (won’t fire without the mag inserted).

Aside from that, weight and size are pretty much the same.

That's right. This week, the Council's Finance & Government Operations Committee advanced Resolution 20-68 by Councilmembers Isaac Benton and Diane Gibson, which calls on the New Mexico Legislature to rewrite Article II, Section 6 (the Right to Keep and Bear Arms provision) of the New Mexico Constitution, rip out the state firearms preemption clause and put that enormously-significant change to a popular vote. The full Council will consider the resolution in the coming weeks.

And critically, the prototypical face of gun ownership – long that of an older white man – is changing. Women now make up 40% of first-time buyers. And as gun sales hit historic highs amid the unrest of 2020, Black Americans represented 58% of gun purchasers, outpacing all other groups.

The exploration of the Second Amendment as a civic duty rather than a political rallying cry came to light this year at political events featuring armed demonstrators, including both Black and white militias.
 

Below the Radar: Homeland Security Assessment of Terrorists Use of Ghost Guns Act

One of the things that can make life harder for Second Amendment supporters is when government money gets used to create anti-Second Amendment propaganda. Often, that propaganda can be couched in the form of mandated reports.

This is the goal of HR 2621, the Homeland Security Assessment of Terrorists Use of Ghost Guns Act. Introduced by Representative Max Rose (D-NY), this bill requires an annual “assessment” by the Department of Homeland Security on the threat of terrorists using so-called “ghost guns.” This bill has been reported out of committee and could be taken up at any time.
