In fact, sending these officers to prison wouldn’t be enough. We as a society must prevent this from ever happening again. That means ending “no knock” raids. It means ending the war on drugs. Sending police to prison may feel like justice in this moment, but doing the hard work of reforming our society in tribute to Taylor and her family is simply what she, and all innocent bystanders in an endless drug war, deserve.

With the Supreme Court and circuit courts on the line, the makeup of the Senate has become critical to the restoration of Second Amendment rights in the 2020 election.

In Arizona, Senator Martha McSally is running against Gabby Giffords husband, Mark Kelly. Kelly is ahead of McSally in many polls. The polls may not catch all voters, but they are worrisome. The left sees the McSally Senate seat as vulnerable.

US President Donald Trump says "if I'm not here, your Second Amendment is gone" as he addressed crowds in Virginia labelling the state's governor "crazy".

"I was told not to go for Virginia... it's traditionally not a Republican state over the last number of decades, and I said why not?" he said.

"You have a crazy governor. Every two weeks he's trying to take your guns away."

In a dissent, Barrett wrote that, absent evidence that the man was violent, permanently disqualifying him from owning a gun violated the Constitution's Second Amendment, which guarantees the right to keep and bear arms.

"History is consistent with common sense: it demonstrates that legislatures have the power to prohibit dangerous people from possessing guns," Barrett wrote. "But that power extends only to people who are dangerous."

A federal law that prohibits weapons on school campuses was applied to a virtual learner.

A 4th-grader in Louisiana was suspended to having a BB gun in his bedroom that was visible on his screen during school hours. His father says enacting a policy like that is an invasion of privacy.

This year, 9-year-old Ka Mauri's is a virtual learner, so his bedroom is also his classroom. Woodmere Elementary suspended him for six days over the BB gun.

“In these incendiary times, formally blessing an armed militia to assist law enforcement is akin to tossing a Molotov cocktail into a fireworks factory,” a Tuesday Richmond Times-Dispatch offering by columnist Michael Paul Williams asserts. “But that’s what’s up in Halifax County, whose Board of Supervisors is considering the idea of the Halifax County Militia serving as an auxiliary to local authorities when called.

The polarizing case of Kyle Rittenhouse got a new wrinkle with the release of an 11-minute video purporting to tell the “truth” of his case.

Rittenhouse, 17, shot three people, killing two, at the Kenosha protests stemming from the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse is charged with two counts of homicide, among other serious offenses, but many across the country and around the world have backed his actions as self-defense, or even praised him as a patriot or hero.

A measure on the November ballot to make Clatsop County a Second Amendment sanctuary will likely be challenged in court if it passes.

Gun rights advocates behind the measure want to prohibit county resources from being used to enforce any local, state and federal law or regulation that restricts the right to keep and bear firearms, accessories or ammunition.
 

Next Justice Could Bring 'A Sea Change In The Law,'

Blocher says gun rights will likely take center stage if, as expected, Trump’s pick is confirmed by the Republican-led U.S. Senate.

“One issue that I think is particularly worth paying attention to is the future of the Second Amendment,” Blocher said. “The court has, for the last 10 years, avoided taking another major gun rights case. The justices don’t give reasons for why they don’t take cases, but one common understanding is that the justices are divided, with four justices having a broad view of gun rights, four justices tending to defer to the political branches when it comes to gun regulation, and the chief justice right in the middle – a 4-1-4 split.”

A challenge to Hawaii’s strict gun laws was back before a federal appeals court Thursday, where an attorney representing the state tried to defend a law that allowed officials to deny George Young a permit to carry a loaded gun in public.

Young’s attorney, Alan Beck, said the law is a de-facto ban on guns outside the home.

A Germantown couple wants to renew their foster parent license through the Washington County Human Services Department.

But there's a the catch: They say they need to give up their Second Amendment rights to do so.

Brian and Kate Lafferty filed a lawsuit July 27 in Washington County Circuit Court seeking “declaratory judgment invalidating regulations.” The Washington County Human Services Department and Wisconsin Department of Children and Families are defendants in the lawsuit.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s impressive dissent in Kanter v. Barr (pp. 27-64) illustrates both her fidelity to the Supreme Court’s landmark Second Amendment ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and her masterful application of the constitutional methodology of originalism.

President Donald Trump is expected to choose Judge Amy Coney Barrett, whom he previously appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

News outlets, including CNN, PBS Newshour, and CBS, reported Friday evening that the president is expected to announce Saturday that he has chosen to nominate Barrett to the nation’s highest court — though the pick isn’t yet final until Trump makes a formal nomination.

She is considered an “originalist” on issues like gun rights – arguing that the Second Amendment should be applied literally in all circumstances. In 2019, she dissented against a majority opinion that upheld the government’s right to deny supposedly dangerous people from legally obtaining guns.

The Second Amendment, she added, “confers an individual right, intimately connected with the natural right of self-defence and not limited to civic participation”.

Boulder gun owners hope the U.S. Supreme Court will take up their case against the city over its restrictions on gun ownership.

The Mountain States Legal Foundation (MSLF), a conservative public interest law firm, on Thursday petitioned the court to overturn a federal court's decision not to hold a hearing in Caldara v. Boulder.

MSLF made oral arguments in the case before a federal appellate court in 2019. The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals put the case on hold earlier this year, saying it's up to the Colorado Supreme Court to issue a ruling.

 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
