The Second Amendment Fraud

As gun violence continues unabated in our country, it has become clear that the Republican Party has no intention of doing anything about it, short of offering thoughts and prayers to the victims’ families. That and a plethora of useless bromides such as “the only thing to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

The roots of the modern gun debate go back to the 1963, Kennedy assassination, when Democratic senator Thomas Dodd from Connecticut introduced legislation restricting the sale of mail order rifles.

Right-wing media are yet again running to the side of an accused vigilante killer, framing Daniel Penny — who has been charged with choking Jordan Neely to death on a New York subway — as a “hero” deserving of “unwavering” political and financial support.

On May 1, Penny placed Neely in a chokehold that lasted at least three minutes. One witness who filmed the homicide claimed Neely — an unhoused Black man who had long suffered with mental illness following the murder of his mother — was restrained for as long as 15 minutes.

A gunman, who testified he was acting in self-defense during a fatal shooting outside Headliners Barber Shop in downtown Stillwater, was acquitted of first-degree manslaughter of Landon Ray Aufleger, 25, of Stillwater, by a Payne County jury that deliberated for six hours before returning a verdict at 10 pm Friday.
The defendant, Darrin Joseph Bacchus, 26, of Stillwater, had been severely beaten by four men inside the barber shop while he was waiting to get a haircut, he told the jury of seven men and five women. Bacchus testified that he was punched, had a broken nose, and got strangled while he was on the ground in the barber shop at 12th and Main St.

The Bruen ruling came down on June 23, 2022. About two months ago, in a Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) case known as Worth v. Harrington, U.S. District Judge Katherine Menendez — relying on the Bruen decision — struck down a state law restricting handgun carry permits to citizens over age 21.

A new national poll shows access to guns and firearms has become top of mind for many Americans.

A poll by Axios-Ipsos shows access to guns and firearms jumped to the top spot of public health concerns among Americans polled – surpassing opioids and fentanyl.

According to the poll, 26% of respondents said they believed access to guns and firearms is the top threat to U.S. public health. That number is up from 17% in the last poll in February.

For example, DeSantis and his allies have been at the forefront of implementing conservative education-related and anti-LGBTQ policies, even as polls have suggested some of those policies may have limited appeal. But when it comes to other conservative priorities, like gun policy and abortion, Florida Republicans have largely moved with — or even lagged behind — a larger group of red states.

A large share of the American public supports stricter gun laws and certain gun reforms like expanded background checks and barring mentally ill people from buying guns. Boston.com readers feel that age limits should be in place as well.

We asked readers to share their reaction to the federal judge’s ruling and most of the readers polled said young adults should be restricted from buying firearms. Of the 448 people who responded to the survey, 54% of readers said the judge was wrong to decide that restricting gun sales for adults under 21 was unconstitutional.

A bill introduced by newly-elected State Sen. Senator Catherine Blakespear (D-Encinitas) requiring California gun sellers to post warnings about the dangers of firearms in the home is now making its way to the state Assembly.

First introduced in February, Senate Bill 417 would require more signage in gun stores to help prevent unnecessary deaths or suicide.

SB 417 was approved on a bipartisan vote of 32 to 4, with the four votes against the bill from State Sens. Marie Alvarado-Gil, Brian Dahle, Brian Jones, and Roger Niello.

Crime happens everywhere and at any time. It was about four o’clock in the morning when a store clerk stopped an armed robber who’d been running from the police. This is what happened that morning in Kingsland, Georgia.

The clerk was working at a gas station/convenience store. It was still dark when a customer ran inside and told the clerk to hand over his car keys. The clerk’s car was the only car in front of the store at that hour. Also, the robber had a gun in his hands. The clerk handed over his keys rather than get in a gunfight with someone who already had his gun out. The attacker ran out of the store and jumped into the clerk’s car.

Gov. Tim Walz Friday signed into law a sweeping public safety and judiciary budget bill that creates two new restrictions on firearm possession and sales.

In a Capitol reception room packed with gun control advocates, lawmakers, survivors of gun violence and others, the second-term DFL governor credited the DFL trifecta for getting the bills across the finish line. And he said the measures will make Minnesota a safer place to live.

When former U.S. Marine Daniel Penny restrained Jordan Neely with a rear naked choke earlier this month, killing him on a New York City subway car, the moment touched the nation’s most sensitive of cultural nerves.

Caught on a bystander video, it was an intimate moment of violence, punctuated by the contexts of recent rising crime, the ethics of self-defense, and the enduring specter of race in America. Mr. Penny, who is white, lay flat on his back on the subway floor as he held Mr. Neely, who is Black, on top of him, clenching his neck in an arm vice from behind.

Atkins said the shooter told police his neighbor charged at him and he “shot him as a result.” She said the man said he had issues with the neighbor in the past.

According to the Monroe Police Department, they responded to an armed robbery call at the store located in Monroe on Jan. 2.

Authorities said Anderson shot the robber, later identified as Monquarius Thomas, and they found him outside of the store on the ground with the money he was accused of taking.

Thomas ended up dying.

The rush by the Left to vilify former Marine Daniel Penny before Americans have all the facts of his case could have a negative effect on American males’ willingness to be heroes, Sen. Josh Hawley said Thursday.

The Missouri Republican discussed Penny’s case during an interview with The Daily Signal about his new book, “Manhood: The Masculine Virtues America Needs,” following news that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had charged Penny with second-degree manslaughter in the death in the New York subway of Jordan Neely.

The senator pointed out that the American people still don’t have all the facts and details necessary to understand the incident fully.

Just hours after Governor Wes Moore signed a new gun control bill into law in Maryland, there was a flurry of lawsuits challenging it.

Maryland's gun control law was passed in direct response to the Supreme Court's decision last June affirming the Second Amendment right to carry a gun outside your home for self-defense.

This new law creates new rules for who can carry a gun in public and limits where they can be carried with a concealed carry permit.

Earlier this week, Democrats on the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee advanced several extreme gun control initiatives, despite Maine’s reputation as the safest state in the country. Ignoring numerous calls from gun-owners, advocates, and fellow lawmakers about the implications of these extreme bills, Democratic members pushed through these initiatives with party-line votes. Both the House and the Senate will vote on these proposals in the coming weeks.

Last week, a U.S. judge struck down a federal law that bans licensed federal firearms dealers from selling handguns to young adults under 21, the latest example of how a landmark Supreme Court decision is transforming the legal landscape around firearms.

The ruling issued May 11 by a federal judge in Virginia is just the beginning of what's likely to be a lengthy court battle over rules aimed at making it harder for 18- to 20-year-olds to get handguns.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta today joined a multistate coalition of attorneys general encouraging the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to affirm a district court decision upholding the federal law restricting sales of handguns and handgun ammunition to people under 21 years of age in Reese v. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms & Explosives. The case addresses a Second Amendment challenge to the federal prohibition on sales of handguns and handgun ammunition to persons under 21 by federally licensed firearms dealers. The district court granted the government’s motion to dismiss, and plaintiffs have appealed.
 

TX: Gun and abortion laws have made Texas a woman’s nightmare

Forget about Texas being pro-life. When it comes to guns, abortion and the lives of women, Texas has chosen the path of death.

The effective overturn of abortion access for women in Texas means that women must now travel out of state to safely end their pregnancies. In addition to that burden, many advocates for women have feared that these barriers would increase the risk of women being trapped in abusive relationships — as carrying a pregnancy to term and giving birth ties women more closely to abusers, via their shared children.
 

CA: Numerous Anti-Gun Bills Eligible for Floor Votes

Assembly Bill 28 places an excise tax of 11% on the sales price of all firearms, firearm precursor parts, and ammunition. These taxes are to be collected from California retailers and placed in a newly created “gun violence” fund for appropriation by the state legislature. It is unjust to saddle law-abiding gun owners with special taxes. Such a measure makes it more expensive for law-abiding citizens to exercise a constitutional right, and discourages them from practicing to be safe and proficient with their firearms for purposes such as self-defense, competition, and hunting.
