I assured East Texas leaders and businesses I would continue leading the fight for low taxes, fewer regulations, and keeping our families and communities safe. This means securing the border and supporting our law enforcement and servicemen and women are crucial. I will also protect our fundamental rights: free speech, religious liberty, and the Second Amendment because those are the values of East Texas and remain my values.

Responsible Gun Ownership IS Real, So Who Is the Liar Here?

The October 2021 print issue of The Atlantic features an article by David Frum claiming that responsible gun ownership is a lie.

Loyal AmmoLand News readers know that Frum is the one who is lying. In fact, Frum’s article has a buffet of triple whoppers with bacon and cheese (apologies to the Burger King menu item). That said, this is an important article to read and understand.

Why? Because Frum is not talking to us, or even trying to convince us. Instead, his audience is others among the usual Acela Corridor/Hollywood/Silicon Valley elites, who are eyeing potential Supreme Court rulings in cases like New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen with no small degree of dread.

The homeowner attempted to keep the man from leaving the property in the 900 block of South Allegheny Avenue while he called 911, but the man began attacking him with a metal object, he said.

The homeowner shot the man in the torso about 5:10 p.m., police said.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he died. His identity had not been released Friday pending notification of his next of kin.

Tulsa Police Homicide Lt. Brandon Watkins said the homeowner was not arrested, with indications that the shooting was in self-defense, but detectives planned to meet with the man and his attorney Friday.

No criminal charges will be filed after the fatal shooting of a Kalamazoo man in May.

Aaron Williams, 33, was fatally shot May 15, in the 3100 block of Whittier Drive in Kalamazoo. Police said Williams was trying to break into the home.

No charges will be issued against the shooter because the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor’s Office could not determine the shooting was not in self-defense, Prosecutor Jeff Getting said. The office reviewed an investigation into the fatal shooting by the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety.
 

NM: Anti-Gun Albuquerque Democrats Introduce “Crime Control” Package Heavy On Gun Control

Even though their so-called “universal background check” and “red flag” laws have been abject failures, anti-gun state lawmakers are continuing their war on law-abiding gun owners by calling for mandatory firearms storage proposals and limits on magazine capacity to be considered during the 30-day session in 2022.

They are asking Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham to make these bills germane to what is typically a budget-only session.

The Biden administration is signaling that they are strongly considering reentering the United Nations Small Arms Treaty that former President Trump pulled out of and that critics assert will lead to an international gun registry.

The Acting Deputy Director of the Office of Conventional Arms Threat Reduction at the U.S. Department of State, William Malzahn, told the United Nations that the current administration is supporting and getting behind the Arms Trade Treaty.

Following the success of the CZ P-10 series so far, a new challenger has entered the arena of micro-compact pistols. The CZ P-10 M brings much of what was loved about its larger counterparts to a smaller, more discreet package. The slick sides identify it purely as a defensive firearm, and chambered in 9mm it remains true to what it claims to be: nothing more, nothing less.
 

TX: Texas gives in further to the seductiveness of its gun culture — but it’s a trap

...permit-less carry measure has been getting all the national attention, but that’s not the only worrying new gun law in Texas as of this week. Under the so-called Second Amendment Sanctuary State Act, state agencies are now prohibited from enforcing any new federal gun restrictions. School marshals in public, private and charter schools can carry concealed weapons instead of having to store them. And hotel guests are permitted to have firearms and ammunition in their rooms.

This is all mind-boggling. Texas once had some of the strictest gun laws in the United States. Whatever happened to the responsibility to protect public safety?

Sensible leaders, if Texas had them, would be steering in the exact opposite direction right now.

Firearm possession is not to be taken lightly. It comes with a range of benefits. These include giving you a sense of safety, improving your motor skills, and you can use it as a hobby.

With the benefits, you think that every gun owner knows how to avoid common gun owner mistakes. But that is not any further from the truth. If you recently bought a gun, check out these mistakes to avoid and handle the weapon properly.
 

Chicago proves 2A right to carry firearms should be uniform and national

One of the worst-run states the Democrats can take credit for is Illinois. Illinois was the first (1968) state in the nation to unconstitutionally and illegally require all residents who want to own guns to first apply for and possess an Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card from the state. The sole purpose of the card in the minds of the Democrats was to curb gun crimes in the City of Chicago. That not only didn’t work but things are now worse than ever. The worst part of this idea was Democrats were warned by both Republicans and law-abiding gun owners, “This is a really bad idea that won’t work.”
 

The United States’ other pandemic

Our other pandemic? It’s guns, and the deaths and injuries they bring. It’s our very own U.S. pandemic, in the news every day, and increasing even after decades. There’s no vaccine; wearing masks doesn’t prevent the spread.

National legislation will — not immediately, but over time. Time is what it will take when there are almost 400 million civilian-held guns in this nation, 46% of the world’s total. They’re not Second Amendment muskets, either; many are modern weapons of war.
 

MI: AG Nessel Files Amicus Brief In Support Of Federal Firearm Regulations

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel today joined a coalition of 18 attorneys general in filing an amicus brief supporting federal laws restricting the commercial sale of handguns to persons under the age of 21. In the brief, filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, the coalition argues that such restrictions protect residents from the harmful effects of gun violence, as well as promote the safe use of firearms.

The coalition filed the brief in Hirschfeld v. Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco, and Explosives, a lawsuit challenging federal statutes and regulations that bar 18-to-20-year-olds from purchasing handguns from federally licensed dealers.

"I kind of wish they put some training or about the statute as a requirement to carry just so that whenever you go out to carry you’re more informed about where you can carry, where you can’t carry if you’re prohibited from carrying," said Forbis. "That way people that are law-abiding citizens don’t get in trouble with the law."

He said schools and courthouses are among the places where carrying a gun is prohibited, adding business owners also have the right to ban guns from their property.

North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper had an opportunity to end his state’s discriminatory Jim Crow-era law. Legislation to repeal the state’s requirement for citizens to obtain a pistol purchase permit from their local sheriff was passed by state lawmakers and sent to his desk for signature, in what would have ended a practice known to discriminate against African-American gun buyers. Instead, he vetoed the measure.

The reason California is losing a seat in the U.S. Congress is because its population grew 6.1 percent from 2010 to 2020. However, the U.S. population grew by 10.1 percent, nearly double that rate.

The Golden State’s population rose by 2.28 million to 39.5 million. But Texas’s grew 4 million, to 29.1 million. That’s a 15.9 percent growth rate.

Aside from California, the states losing seats are in the Northeastern Rust Belt. Those gaining seats were in the South or the West.
 

Biden Arms Taliban While Looking to Ban 40,000,000 Pistols from U.S. Gun Owners

As you may know, the ATF has proposed a ban on 40,000,000 pistols! On September 8, 2021 at 11:59 EDT, gun owners won’t have any more chances to provide ATF input.

The next step would be if and when the ATF’s gun control goes into effect, because then GOA and the Gun Owners Foundation will file our lawsuit!

But a strong showing by gun owners in opposition to this Proposed Rule will send a clear message to future judges who will take up our case.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
