“Well, I’m a numbers guy and I’ve looked at the numbers over the years,” Durr said in an August interview with conservative commentator Elizabeth Nader. “We have a district that is 150,000 voters. Senator Sweeney has never broken 32,000 votes ... and so I felt if he can’t even get half the district, that means there’s numbers out there to be taken, and you just have to get people to come out and vote. I believe if they come out and vote, we could win,” Durr said.

Durr promises lower property taxes and the creation of a “friendly business environment.” When it comes to the Second Amendment, he states on his website that "any law or regulation by a state is a violation."

Buried in the broad-ranging material found on the hard drive from Hunter Biden’s laptop—a copy of which has been obtained by AmmoLand News—is a view of how Joe Biden looks at the Second Amendment, with reports from his daily newsletter titled “Office of Vice President Joe Biden News Briefing,” published when the Delaware Democrat was no longer serving as vice president, and before he entered the campaign.

“If I would had let Mr. Rosenbaum get my gun, he would have killed me,” he told the court.

“He was chasing me. I was alone. He threatened to kill me earlier in that night . . .

“He was going to take my gun and kill me. I wanted him to stop. I didn’t want to have to kill Mr. ­Rosenbaum.”

As Rittenhouse shook with anguished sobs, sociopathic ghouls on Twitter accused him of faking it.
 

Supreme Court should reject law that keeps ordinary people from carrying guns for self-defense

Former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement, speaking on behalf of the law’s opponents, emphasized that applicants cannot pass the state’s amorphous test by expressing a general desire to protect themselves against criminal assault. “In order to exercise a constitutional right that New York is willing to concede extends outside the home,” he noted, “you have to show that you have an atypical need to exercise the right that distinguishes you from the general community.”

That situation, Clement said, “describes a privilege” rather than “a constitutional right.” Most of the justices seemed inclined to agree.

As employees stock the shelves and get ready for another day of business, the phone has already rung twice at Flashpoint Firearms. The store won't open for another 20 minutes.

Management says the phones have been going like this for days and days, and it's almost always the same thing: deer hunters looking for rifle ammo.

The store is feeling the squeeze on a nationwide ammunition shortage.

"Unfortunately because of COVID a lot of manufacturers have not been able to produce the volume they have in years past," Says assistant manager Jacob Hower. "They're prioritizing certain calibers over other... prioritizing .556 and 9mm."
 

Judge Jeanine predicts Kyle Rittenhouse will be 'acquitted and exonerated'

This is a case where clearly self-defense is something that will exonerate Kyle Rittenhouse and whether this case goes to the jury or whether the judge dismisses some of the charges on his own or whether the judge grants a mistrial, this young man will be acquitted and exonerated. What has happened here is there was a rush to judgment in this case. This kid, who was a fire cadet, a lifeguard and a police explorer. He was a kid who went there to clean graffiti. They have video of it. He went there to help people. He was a medic. He was CPR trained and he finds himself in this situation. He's got a gun and in every circumstance, and it's corroborated by what the witnesses say.
 

CNN's Jeffrey Toobin: The Good News For Kyle Rittenhouse Is "He's Not On Trial For Being An Idiot"

"What kind of idiot 17-year-old gets a giant gun and goes to a riot? He has no license. He has no training. He thinks he's going to scrub graffiti off with his AR-15? I mean, the stupidity of this. What could possibly go wrong? Well, a lot went wrong," Toobin said on CNN.


"The good news for Kyle Rittenhouse is that he's not on trial for being an idiot," Toobin declared. "He's on trial for homicide and in that respect, this is a tough case for the prosecution because it does seem like he has a plausible case of self-defense and if it were illegal to be an idiot, the jails would be even more crowded than they are now. Homicide's a different matter and you know, he may have a defense," Toobin said today.

Teenager Kyle Rittenhouse testified in his own defense on Wednesday in his Wisconsin trial, saying one of the two men he is charged with murdering threatened to kill him while also telling jurors he was not looking for trouble.

Rittenhouse, 18, is charged in the killing of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and the wounding of Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, during racial justice protests in Wisconsin in 2020. He has pleaded not guilty and has said he acted in self defense.

Rittenhouse methodically described the events of the night of the killings, testifying that Rosenbaum threatened twice to kill him.

Rittenhouse said Rosenbaum, speaking to his group, said "I'm going to cut your fucking hearts out."

A prosecutor in the trial against Kyle Rittenhouse suggested Rittenhouse's experience playing violent video games, such as "Call of Duty," could impact his claim he was acting in self-defense when he shot multiple individuals, killing two, during the civil unrest that took place in Kenosha, Wis. in 2020.

"Isn't it true when you would hang out with Dominic Black you'd play 'Call of Duty' and other first-person shooter video games?" Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger asked Rittenhouse during the trial Wednesday.

Senator Wayne Langerholc Jr. (R-35), has announced that his legislation to defend the Second Amendment rights of Pennsylvanians was approved by the Senate.

Senate Bill 448 would allow for an individual or member organizations to sue a county or municipality that implements a local firearms ordinance in violation of existing state law; would allow for individuals adversely affected by local action to seek relief and damages; would put the burden on the municipality to defend its actions instead of placing the burden on the individual; and would make it clear the General Assembly is the only elected body responsible for passing legislation related to the right to bear arms.

The referendum to make Blair County a second amendment sanctuary overwhelmingly passed county-wide with an unofficial tally of 17,846 voting in favor to just 7,149 no votes.

The referendum, which makes it illegal for the government to confiscate legally owned firearms, was voted on two levels as voters were asked to cast a yes or no vote on the county level as well as their respective municipality.

None of the county’s 24 municipalities voted down the referendum, passing it individually by a wide margin in each area.
 

The Supreme Court’s Latest Gun Case Made a Mockery of Originalism

Last week, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, the case that will decide the future of concealed carry in the United States. Following those arguments, it has become crystal clear that the conservative wing of the Supreme Court is once again determined to apply originalism in a selective fashion to achieve its preferred political outcomes. The court appears to be perfectly happy to trot out originalist rhetoric when it serves its interests and abandon it entirely when the historical record does not support its political goals.
 

IL: Haine says FOID Act is unconstitutional

Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Haine on Monday announced his office has filed a brief with the Illinois Supreme Court urging it to strike down the Firearm Owner Identification (FOID) Act as unconstitutional.

In May, a White County judge ruled the state’s FOID card system was unconstitutional and reduced residents’ Second Amendment rights to bear arms to a “facade.” Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul appealed the decision to the Illinois Supreme Court.

On Monday Haine said his office has submitted an amicus curiae, or “friend of the court,” brief to the state’s highest court, making Madison County the first to file such a brief in the pending case.

Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones spoke before county commissioners at their Monday meeting urging them to reject the bill and constitutional carry. He said he feels they endanger community safety as well as law enforcement officers during vehicle stops.

“This current law in place that has been in effect more than 50 years … allows law enforcement to have a very valuable tool,” Jones told commissioners in the meeting. “Criminals aren’t going to go to the trouble of getting a permit. As a result of that, we can confront them when we encounter them without one in a vehicle and are able in many cases to relieve them of those weapons, which many times are stolen.”
 

Rittenhouse murder case thrown into jeopardy by mistrial bid

At that, the jury was ushered out of the room, and Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder loudly and angrily accused Binger of pursuing an improper line of questioning and trying to introduce testimony that the judge earlier said he was inclined to prohibit.

Rittenhouse lawyer Corey Chirafasi all but suggested prosecutors might be deliberately trying to cause a mistrial because this one is “going badly” for the prosecution and it wants a do-over. The defense asked for a mistrial with prejudice, meaning that if one is granted, Rittenhouse cannot be retried.

When Binger said he had been acting in good faith, the judge replied: “I don’t believe that.”
 

Did Rittenhouse prosecutors try to manufacture testimony?

Is this standard operating procedure among prosecutors, or is this as bad as it looks? When this clip from the testimony of Nathan DeBruin in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial got published on Twitter, I asked that question in earnest. The answer remains unclear, but it certainly looks as though DeBruin is describing an attempt by prosecutors to pressure DeBruin into amending his police statement to favor their case.

“Suborn perjury” isn’t quite accurate, but this seems to go beyond mere witness coaching too:

You’re at home asleep on a weekday night. It is after midnight when you feel your house shudder and hear someone kick in your back door. You go downstairs and see an intruder. The intruder pulls a gun out of his pants and points the gun at you. You run back upstairs to your bedroom. You grab your gun. The intruder chases you into your bedroom and shoots at you. You shoot your attacker. Now your attacker turns and runs back outside. You stop shooting. You stay inside and call 911.

You hear a car drive away. Police also get reports of someone who matches the description of your attacker who was dumped at the side of the road. Emergency medical services take him to a local hospital where he is pronounced dead.

"We show that these measures causally prevented excessive gun sales after the shooting at Sandy Hook, and that this causes additional homicides, particularly among women in a domestic context," Schindler told Salon by email. "To summarize your question: Laws that delay gun purchases cause lower gun sales after shocks like the Sandy Hook shooting and thus are able to prevent homicides, many of which are domestic."

In 2013, the largest survey of cops completed by Police One showed that 80% of police officers believed UBCs to be ineffective in stopping criminals. Yet, every time a mass shooting occurs, UBCs are pushed by anti-gun politicians.

Moreover, research debunks UBC effectiveness.

UC Davis studied the California UBC law over a 10-year period, and found no population level changes in firearm homicide or suicide rates after it was passed.

Finally, UBCs are dangerous to our Second Amendment rights, and are the gateway to the confiscation of firearms. Without a registration scheme, UBCs will be ineffective in tracing firearms.

On top of the inconsistencies that VerBruggen describes, another revelation that has surfaced during the trial is that Grosskreutz originally lied to police about having a gun at all. As CNN writes, “Grosskreutz acknowledged he incorrectly told police last year that his firearm had fallen out of his pants that night and did not admit that he had a weapon at the time.” Grosskreutz maintains that the omission was not “purposeful,” and that it was because he “had just gone through one of the most traumatic experiences” of his life, “both emotionally and physically,” as well as being on pain medication from a recent surgery.

Score another legendary firearm manufacturer setting down roots in a friendlier state. Remington Firearms announced the company will establish a corporate headquarters and expand production in La Grange, Georgia.

“The decision to locate in Georgia is very simple, the state of Georgia is not only a business-friendly state, it’s a firearms friendly state,” said Remington Firearms CEO Ken D’Arcy to media.

The announcement marks yet another firearm manufacturer that is investing in states that respect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and value the contributions firearm manufacturers make to a state’s economy.
