New study shoots holes in gun-control campaigners' biggest claim
Submitted by: Corey Salo

Democrats long have demanded more and more gun control, trotting out their favorites plans to get rid of "assault" weapons and those huge magazines that hold multiple shots any time a criminal uses a firearm.

They idealize that removing guns from legal and responsible gun owners will cut down on crime.

Now a new study is blowing their arguments out of the water.

The organization Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership, a project of the Second Amendment Foundation, has released a new study showing there is "no association between increased lawful firearm sales and rates of crime or homicide."

It was done by DRGO member Mark Hamill M.D., and was published in the Journal of Surgical Research by Hamill and a team of nine more doctors.

An Oregon man who killed another man by stabbing him five times with a homemade spear has been acquitted of murder after a judge sided with his self-defense contention.

Austin Hayes, 33, was found not guilty Wednesday of charges including second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon.

Multnomah County Circuit Judge Amy Baggio accepted the man's claims that he acted in self-defense during a confrontation in downtown Portland with Quinton Miller, who later died from his stab wounds.

Baltimore is a city with a shooting problem. It is also a city with a squeegee problem. And, of course, it is a city with a squeegee shooting problem.

In July, 48-year-old Timothy Reynolds exited his car with a bat and confronted a group of squeegee workers. What exactly caused the incident isn’t clear, nor is it entirely clear what happened next. But according to prosecutors, three of the young workers surrounded Reynolds, one threw a rock, and one shot him five times as he was walking away. The one who shot Reynolds was 14 years old at the time, and his defense team says it was in self-defense.

The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors recently approved additional sergeant and specialist positions to handle the backlog of requests for concealed carry weapon permits.

Since the Supreme Court ruling allowing Americans have a right to carry firearms in public for self-defense, the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office has been inundated by requests for CCW permits, spokesman Jimmy Lee said Wednesday.

Prior to this decision, the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office would typically receive about 20 concealed carry weapon applications each month, which would be processed by one employee, Lee said.

We know Biden wants to ban popular semi-automatic firearms—he even again promised to do this right before the midterm election.

We know Biden wants to ban so-called “high-capacity” magazines—according to him, these could be any magazine that holes 10 rounds, or perhaps eight.

We know Biden nonsensically wants to ban the 9 mm handgun, even though it is easily the most-popular centerfire pistol caliber sold today—Biden said, “A 9 mm bullet blows the lung out of the body. So the idea that these high-caliber weapons is of—there’s simply no rational basis for it in terms of thinking about self-protection, hunting. I mean, I just—and remember, the Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute … .”

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried and other plaintiffs will appeal the dismissal of a lawsuit challenging federal prohibitions on medical-marijuana patients buying and possessing guns, according to a court notice filed Wednesday.

Fried filed the lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice this year. Plaintiffs include medical-marijuana patients and a gun owner, who allege that the prohibitions violate Second Amendment rights.
 

Analysis: The Supreme Court Probably Won’t Save Non-Violent Felons’ Gun Rights

“The earliest firearm legislation in colonial America prohibited Native Americans, Black people, and indentured servants from owning firearms,” the court’s per curiam opinion reads. “Likewise, Catholics in the American colonies (as in Britain) were subject to disarmament without demonstrating a proclivity for violence.”

The Third Circuit did not invent this line of thinking. Justice Amy Coney Barrett cited the concept in her Kanter dissent, although she came to the opposite conclusion about the constitutionality of gun bans for non-violent felons.
 

MD: Md. handgun licensing lacks historical roots, gun group tells 4th Circuit

Maryland’s licensing requirement for would-be handgun buyers infringes upon the constitutional right of people to keep arms for personal protection in their home and has no historical roots from either 18th- or 19th-century America, gun rights advocates told a federal appeals court Wednesday.

Maryland Shall Issue made its argument as the 4th Circuit considers whether the state’s handgun qualification license, or HQL, comports with the Second Amendment and its most recent interpretation by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Police say a driver pulled a gun out on a busy street in Roy on Wednesday after a chain-reaction crash led to a fight between drivers.

Just before 2 p.m. officers responded to a crash involving four cars at 5400 South and 1900 West, Roy police spokesman Stuart Hackworth said.

A truck slammed into the back of another vehicle and started a chain reaction crash, with a total of four cars involved.

While police responded, witnesses told them a man wielded a gun and a physical fight took place.

A jury in Texas has acquitted a man who said he fired in self-defense when he fatally shot an off-duty Houston police officer.

Robert Soliz was charged with murder for the death of police Sgt. Sean Rios, who was killed in a shootout while the sergeant was on his way to work.

The gun battle followed a road rage clash that led both Soliz and Rios to exit the highway in 2020. Soliz testified that Rios swerved into his lane, nearly hitting him, and that he never identified himself as a police officer. Prosecutors and defense attorneys differed on who fired first.

A man who pleaded guilty to understating his lawn-mowing income to obtain $2,458 in food stamps had no Second Amendment right to own a gun, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at Philadelphia ruled that the felony-equivalent conviction placed Bryan David Range outside the class of people traditionally entitled to Second Amendment rights.

When delivering professional training nationally, I am often asked questions such as “What’s the best knife out there?” “What should I look for when buying a knife?” “How do I know if this knife is a good fit for me?”

Most new knife buyers, especially in our sound-byte society, expect a one-word answer. If you want a one-word answer, then call a buddy, look online at a couple of reviews or seller-paid advertisements. However, to be better informed warrants a deeper dive.

There are few things that I enjoy more than handloading ammunition. What started as a simple economic measure blossomed into a passion for accuracy and a quest to fire some of the most hard-to-find ammunition. While I can handload nearly anything that was once fired, I learned first to question whether or not I should. I have spent countless hours at the bench rolling off my own range fodder, only to come to the conclusion that the entire endeavor was nothing more than a waste of time and resources.

Five county sheriffs in Oregon – with possibly more to come – are refusing to enforce a strict new gun control law passed last week by voters, with several saying that it circumvents the Second Amendment and will represent a strain on law enforcement resources while failing to address the root causes of violent crime.

Sheriff Cody Bowen of Union County stated in an interview that the issue with gun violence is not firearms themselves, but the underlying mental health issues of those carrying out shootings.

Warren Lacasse has strong feelings about Oregon ballot Measure 114, the new, tighter gun law slated to take effect in December.

“Anytime you threaten people's rights you're going to have a problem,” said Lacasse, who owns The Gun Room Inc. in Southeast Portland. “I can't believe that people are so stupid that they would give away their Second Amendment rights.”

Since Oregon voters passed Measure 114 last week, Lacasse said gun sales at his store have doubled, and across Oregon the number of people trying to buy a gun is soaring

A federal judge’s recent ruling on gun rights raised a red flag for domestic abuse victim advocates.

District Judge David Counts, who serves in the western district of Texas, ruled it was unconstitutional to take gun rights away from people under a protective order.

In September, he made a similar ruling that people under federal indictment could legally possess a gun because they haven’t been convicted.

“Domestic abusers are not new,” noted Counts, who was originally nominated by President Barack Obama and renominated by President Donald Trump. “But until the mid-1970s, government intervention — much less removing an individual’s firearms — because of domestic violence practically did not exist. … Glaringly absent from the historical record — from colonial times until 1994 — are consistent examples of the government removing firearms from someone accused (or even convicted) of domestic violence.”

Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced today that it has filed a new Second Amendment lawsuit challenging Delaware’s ban on so-called “assault weapons.” The complaint in Gray v. Jennings, along with other case information, can be viewed at FPCLegal.org.

“In this case, the analysis is straightforward,” argues the complaint. “The Plaintiffs may not be prohibited from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. The Second Amendment’s text covers the conduct the Plaintiffs wish to engage in and the arms they wish to acquire and possess.
 

NJ: NSSF Challenges Delaware, N.J., ‘Public Nuisance’ Laws Allowing Frivolous Claims Against Firearm Manufacturers

NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, filed suits against the attorneys general of Delaware and New Jersey, challenging recently-enacted “public nuisance” laws in both states that are “specifically designed to evade the judgment of Congress – and the Constitution.”

Both Delaware and New Jersey enacted public nuisance laws allowing the state and private parties to sue firearm manufacturers for the harm caused by the criminal misuse of lawfully sold firearms. In 2005, Congress barred these sorts of baseless lawsuits when it passed the bipartisan Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). Delaware and New Jersey’s laws are preempted by the PLCAA under the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause.

The race between U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert and her Democratic challenger Adam Frisch appeared to be headed to a recount Thursday after the Republican's lead narrowed through the day as most counties in Colorado's largely rural 3rd Congressional District posted final, unofficial vote totals.

Although a recount looked to be a certainty — delaying official results until mid-December — recounts in Colorado elections in recent decades have never swung the outcome as far as Frisch would need to prevail in the congressional race, making it equally likely that Boebert has won reelection to a second term.

"I love this neighborhood. It's got a real sense of community," she said.

But the possibility that a particular kind of shop might soon open in her neighborhood gives her a sense of anxiety.

"It's such a central and family-focused location. It just feels very out of place," she said.

“Given the prevalence of firearm-related suicidal behavior among veterans and the effectiveness of diminished access to firearms in the reduction of suicide, suicide risk assessment and safety planning should include both firearms access and discussion of safe storage,” the report stated.

“Failure to adequately assess firearms access and discuss safe storage of firearms may contribute to a failure to promote distance between the patient and access to firearms as a means of suicide.”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I now think the only way to control handgun use is to prohibit the guns. And the only way to do that is to change the Constitution. — M. Gartner, then President of NBC News, USA Today, January 16, 1992, pg. A9
