She said the legislation included universal background checks and a ban on gun purchases for Americans with a history of hate crimes.

The congresswoman said it’s the Senate that hasn’t taken up the issue, preventing the bill from going any further.

“I hope we can find unity on fundamental pieces of legislation. Not to limit their second amendment rights, and not to change their ability to own a gun. But we have to have this debate in this country,” Escobar said.

Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed a “red flag law” Friday, quashing a Democrat-led effort to allow for the temporary confiscation of firearms when a court deems a person at risk to themselves or others.

The veto, which Sununu said he issued as a result of constitutional concerns, came as part of a package of four vetoes the governor issued Friday.

Gun owners in Rappahannock County can sleep well at night knowing for a fact that their Board of Supervisors plans to leave their firearms in peace.

On Monday night upwards of forty Rappahannock residents attended the evening session in support of a measure colloquially known as the “No Local Gun Control” resolution. At least fifteen people in attendance — including some county employees — were not wearing masks, despite Virginia Executive Order 63 mandating that face coverings must be worn indoors at public events.

The demand for firearms, starting with an application for a gun permit, remains high, though local sheriffs’ offices are struggling to keep up.

Grass Roots North Carolina is again suing Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker, the third time since the start of COVID-19 lockdowns. The lawsuits began in March, challenging a move by Baker, who suspended all pistol permit and concealed-carry services for more than a month.

The case against the NRA must be politically bulletproof

But has she pursued liberal charities with the same vigor with which she is going after the conservative NRA? Has she sought to totally shut down these organizations rather than reform them? Again perhaps she has, but if so, she should cite precedents. In today’s highly politicized atmosphere, the burden is on her to demonstrate equal application of the law to all similarly situated charities, regardless of their political positions. She may be able to satisfy that burden, but she should do it with specific examples, especially of liberal organizations she has tried to shut down and throw out of the state.

Yesterday, Governor Chris Sununu vetoed legislation that sought to allow the suspension of your Second Amendment rights without due process. Thanks to the Governor’s actions, House Bill 687 will be unable to erode our Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Please contact Governor Sununu and thank him for vetoing firearm seizure legislation, House Bill 687.
 

CA: Was the L.A. District Attorney's Husband Acting in Self-Defense When He Threatened to Shoot Protesters on His Porch?

If you were jolted awake at 5 a.m. by an angry clamor in front of your house, followed by a ring of the doorbell, you probably would be alarmed. You might even grab a gun. That's what David Lacey, husband of Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, did on March 2, when Black Lives Matter activists came to the couple's home for a predawn protest. But what he did next resulted in three misdemeanor assault charges that California Attorney General Xavier Becerra's office announced this week: Lacey pointed the gun at three protesters, told them to get off his porch, and threatened to shoot them if they didn't.

Yet even liberals who oppose the NRA’s mission should take a deep breath and ask: Do we really want an elected attorney general to try to destroy a prominent nongovernmental organization that is arrayed on the other side of the political spectrum from her? What if this were Alabama and the organization were the NAACP? Or Tennessee and the ACLU?

Authorities are still investigating a domestic fight which led to a 29-year-old man, who was armed with a handgun, shooting his 53-year-old father, who was armed with an axe.

Lee County Commonwealth's Attorney H. Fuller Cridlin told News 5 earlier this week that the incident involved a father and a son. His office is working closely with Virginia State Police to determine whether a crime was committed, or whether the shooter acted justifiably in self-defense.

DeWine said last year that he supports "Stand Your Ground," but asked the legislature to set it aside following the mass shooting in Dayton. However, neither Republican nor Democratic lawmakers have shown much interest in the governor's own package of gun reform proposals.

Ballas’ wife called 911 as Iavarone continued to scream. Not long afterward, Ballas retrieved a .38 caliber handgun he kept locked in his bedroom, loaded it, and went to confront Iavarone, the affidavit said.

During Friday’s proceeding in front of Judge Margaret J. Amoroso, Assistant District Attorney Geoffrey Paine said prosecutors decided to reduce the charges because it would have been difficult to disprove the self-defense claim, given evidence that Iavarone had threatened to kick down Ballas’ front door and “assault people inside the house.”

A lawsuit filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James threatens to dismantle the National Rifle Association if allegations of self-dealing and fraud are proven, but with less than three months until a presidential election, some say a high-profile attempt to destroy the nation’s most powerful gun lobby could blow back on Democrats.

The propaganda of gun-control just got harder. Millions of honest citizens in the USA saw pictures of our inner cities in flames. They heard rioters say they wanted to spread that violence across the country. We read stories of the police being ambushed and killed while Democrat politicians called to defund the police. Millions of us went out and bought a gun for the first time. That makes it harder than ever to sell the fantasy of gun-control.
 

KY: Why It’s Not So Simple To Arrest The Cops Who Shot Breonna Taylor

“Most states don't allow someone to claim self-defense when they are an aggressor,” he said. “But most states also say that when police are acting in their official capacity they can't be aggressors for purposes of self-defense law.” So both Walker and the police can reasonably claim self-defense, and the law makes it virtually impossible to define an “aggressor” in the situation. A kind of self-defense stalemate that leaves a lot of questions as to what charges a prosecutor could bring in Taylor’s case—and could even lead to the end of the no-knock raid in American policing.
 

The NRA Might Be Weakened. Gun Rights Voters Are Not.

But that’s a dangerous assumption for Democrats to make. Even if the NRA is gone or tied down by litigation, about 43 percent of Americans will still live in gun-owning households. A fervent gun rights culture of hunters, collectors, open carriers, militia members and self-defense enthusiasts would still persist. Conservative media outlets would still cater to their fears. Other competing gun rights groups such as Gun Owners of America, National Association for Gun Rights and the Second Amendment Foundation would still channel the views of the gun rights grassroots to elected officials and new organizations could crop up to do the same.
