To express my support of the Second Amendment, I joined the 2AS group here in Otsego County when it was first organized. For far too long, the New York State government has passed more and more insane gun controls without seeming to care at all that they may be unconstitutional infringements to my
right to keep and bear arms.

I also am sick of the insulting name-calling pro-gun control people use to label us.

“With [COVID-19], the sales went up, and then it slowed down a little bit, and then with this presidential election thing … sales shot right up,” Switzer said. “I can’t keep ammo in here. It goes out the doors as fast as I get it in. People come in here screaming for 9 millimeter, 45 millimeter, 40, all kinds of calibers. Even hunting, I can’t get it, because the factories are so short handed, they can’t get all the components.”

South Carolina does not have a county-by-county breakdown on gun sales, a record-breaking 431,032 background checks have been completed statewide as of Oct. 31. Last year, 328,221 were completed in the full year.

Tarrio said Chapman’s remarks do not reflect the members of his organization. He also said the Proud Boys have diverse members in chapters across the country.

“I live in South Florida,” said Tarrio, who is Cuban. “Most of my members are Cuban and Jewish. The minority is white.”

The group has also been criticized for street violence and members in the past have been arrested for brawling with counter-protesters at events. Tarrio said the Proud Boys don’t shy from defending themselves.

“Self-defense itself is violent,” he said. “And that is something we’re really good at, and I think we’ve proven it again and again.”

While recent events have sown the seed of electoral doubt, it’s clear that Patriots should consider a timeless mantra: “Pray for the best, but prepare for the worst.” In the case of the Second Amendment, the worst would be a victory for the media-anointed winners, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden.

Boebert famously faced off against former Congressman—and failed presidential candidate—Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas). When O’Rourke admitted to the world that “Hell, yes” he intended to confiscate semi-automatic rifles during a debate last year, Lauren Boebert traveled several hours to attend one of his town hall meetings in Aurora, Colo.

“Hell, no, you’re not,” she said, amid jeers and booing from O’Rourke’s supporters.

Staunton City Council isn’t planning a discussion or vote this month on a resolution making Staunton a Second Amendment sanctuary.

Mayor Andrea Oakes said the issue isn’t on the agenda for the November meeting, scheduled for Thursday night, but could always be added at the beginning of the meeting.

“I do not foresee this taking place,” she said, “but I cannot guarantee it.”

A shooting range in the historic Five Points neighborhood aims to help educate communities of color about gun safety at an affordable price and in a virtual environment to help pierce through intimidation.

In a red brick building off Washington Street and 24th Avenue, the cars zipping by make more noise than the Second Amendment rights being practiced inside.

Alito said he was not criticizing officials for their policy decisions — “I’m a judge, not a policymaker” — and said before launching into the speech that he hoped his remarks would not be “twisted or misunderstood.”

Alito, one of the court’s most conservative members, said it would be hard to imagine before the pandemic that speeches and concerts would be off-limits and that churches would be empty on Easter and synagogues vacant on sacred holidays. The Supreme Court itself has been closed to the public since March, and the justices hold their meetings and hear oral arguments via teleconference.

He agreed with the earlier decision not to file charges. To this day, Chisholm says he does not know for sure who killed Jones.

When a fatal confrontation is determined to be the result of self-defense, it is removed from official police homicide records because it no longer meets the federal definition of a criminal homicide. In the past six years in Milwaukee, at least 51 killings — nearly 7% of all deaths investigated as homicides — have been found not to be criminal homicide, according to a Journal Sentinel analysis.

The draft legislation, which was provided to some lawmakers in late September, was first reported by The Miami Herald and the Tampa Bay Times this week. Florida's self-defense law would be updated to include looting, criminal mischief and arson "that results in the interruption or impairment of a business operation" as justifications for using physical force, including lethal options, against a person.

Looting "means committing burglary within 500 feet of a violent or disorderly assembly," according to the draft legislation, which was shared with NBC News.

Bowen says he’s an army veteran and the former commander of the Ohio 45th Regimental Volunteer Infantry, a group in which he is still an active member. He says he’s tired of attacks from the left and sees demonstrations like the one he attended as a positive sign.

“We've taken enough bullying from everybody on the left, and we're showing them that we're not going to sit for it anymore. And if it comes down to it, I'll die on my feet before I serve on my knees,” he said.

“Nobody can find anything,” said Royce Holland, the owner of Fuller’s Gun and Pawn. “The supply chain has just broke down.”
