Criminal aggravated assault firearm charges against Historic Arms LLC president Len Savage have been dismissed after the lead investigator and the District Attorney’s office agreed that a “conviction [was] unlikely,” The News and Banner reported Jan. 10.

The District Attorney had previously dismissed charges against Savage in 2022, and had not notified him of that determination, and the sheriff’s office did not do so until the following March. Savage was told the December 28, 2023, warrant hearing was going to be held to determine if the person who tried to run him down with a pickup truck should be held accountable for his actions.

Ned Nwoko, the lawmaker representing Delta North Senatorial District, elaborated on his proposed bill for Nigerians to bear arms for self-defense, addressing the rising insecurity in the country.

The bill outlines strict criteria, including mental fitness certification from two medical doctors, endorsement from the local government chairman, validation by a traditional leader, and confirmation by the Divisional Police Officer regarding the individual's criminal record.

Nwoko emphasized the need for gun shooting schools in every local government area, run by former military officers, where citizens can receive proper training before obtaining arms.

MD: Civil Rights Group to To Maryland: STOP Blaming Gun Owners for Crimes Committed By Criminals

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said Maryland gun owners have every right to oppose new gun control legislation, MD Senate Bill 488, being pushed as the new solution to violent crime, because all it does is penalize the wrong people.

“The claims by proponents of the Gun Industry Accountability Act, including Gov. Wes Moore, that this legislation will prevent criminals from committing crimes border on the preposterous,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Also, the notion that creating a Center for Firearm Violence Prevention will do anything besides build another bureaucracy is, at best, wishful thinking.”

The City of Flint Police Department will offer residents cash for guns turned in during a gun bounty event on Feb. 3, 2024.

The buyback, which will take place from 12 to 5 p.m. at Cathedral of Faith Church, is the first the city will host since a New York Times investigation found that some companies contracted to destroy guns after such events end up destroying just the regulated segments of the firearms and selling the remainder for reuse.

Formerly, the city’s process was to turn over collected guns to Michigan State Police (MSP) after its bounty events for destruction.

Some criminals rely on 3D printers to alter pistols and transform them into fully automatic weapons.

In Lake County, Illinois, crime scenes covered with dozens and dozens of shell casings reveal that modified guns are becoming a regular threat for police and the public.

Florida's Diamondback Firearms arrived in Las Vegas last week for SHOT Show with a very lucky new snub-nosed six-shooter as well as an AR with a 1920s Chicago kinda feel.

Chambered in .357 Magnum, the new handgun is dubbed the Self Defense Revolver, or SDR, and is Diamondback's first centerfire wheel gun. The MSRP of the new Diamondback SDR is $777, which compares nicely to other six-shot all-stainless .357 snubs such as the Kimber K6S DASA (with an ask of $1,195), the $919 Ruger SP101, or the Colt King Cobra Carry's $999 catalog price.

The Senate on Thursday night approved a sweeping overhaul of state firearms laws, setting up talks with the House that could lead to a major new law later this spring or summer.

The Senate bill seeks to rein in untraceable ghost guns, bans carrying firearms in government administrative buildings, gives firearm licensing authorities access to some of an applicant's mental health hospitalization history, and expands the list of people who can petition the court to take away someone's guns if they are deemed dangerous. It passed the Senate on a 37-3 vote shortly after 8 p.m.

The chances of Massachusetts updating its already strict gun laws to reflect concerns over emerging firearms technologies went up significantly when the state Senate approved its version of a controversial gun control proposal over the objections of Second Amendment advocates.

The upper chamber passed their omnibus piece of gun legislation on Thursday night after dispensing with 79 proposed amendments. Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr opened discussion of the bill by pointing out that it hadn’t been heard by a committee or given a public hearing. He suggested the bill might best be seen by the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security but was overridden by 31 of his 39 colleagues.

WA: Oops. Anti-gun lawmaker accidentally argued against her own bill

Senate Bill 5963 is meant to protect against accidental gun violence by incentivizing the proper storage of firearms. But under the Bruen decision by the Supreme Court in 2022, which establishes the framework of judging the constitutionality of gun restrictions, Kuderer’s bill wouldn’t pass survive judicial scrutiny. Watching “My Cousin Vinny” would arm one with the necessary knowledge to apply the majority decision to the law to know it’s unconstitutional. But the state senator, who is an attorney, cited Bruen and the Second Amendment to argue in favor of the bill.

As you can imagine, Kuderer’s arguments weren’t very compelling. She repeatedly made claims about Bruen that reflect the exact opposite of the majority decision.

A U.S. federal district court judge ruled Wednesday that California cannot enforce a law requiring people to undergo background checks to purchase ammunition, holding that the law has “no historical pedigree” and violates the Second Amendment.

“A sweeping background check requirement imposed every time a citizen needs to buy ammunition is an outlier that our ancestors would have never accepted for a citizen,” wrote U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez, an appointee of former President George W. Bush.

A vast majority of Kansans support restrictions beyond the state’s current regulations.

In fall 2022, the Docking Institute of Public Affairs at Fort Hays State University asked Kansans about 10 gun regulation policies in its annual Kansas Speaks public opinion survey.

More than 70% of those surveyed favored six of the 10 policies: requiring universal background checks, requiring a person to be 21 or older, mandatory three-day waiting period, preventing sales to people who have been reported as dangerous by mental health providers, preventing sales to people who have been convicted of violent misdemeanors and allowing family members to ask the court to temporarily remove guns from people at risk of harming themselves or others.
