It didn’t take long for the 2021 Missouri legislature to take a detour into Sillytown.

This week, the state Senate’s General Laws Committee took testimony on a bill offered by state Sen. Eric Burlison, a Republican from the Springfield suburb of Battlefield. The measure — SB 39, for those keeping score — has been dubbed the Second Amendment Protection Act.

A New York judge has rejected a National Rifle Association bid to dismiss, pause or transfer to another court a lawsuit by the state of New York that could shut down the organization.

The lawsuit, filed by the New York attorney general in August, seeks to dissolve the nonprofit and alleges that executives diverted millions of dollars of NRA funds to luxury vacations, private jets and more. The lawsuit, backed by a 18-month investigation, alleges the organization is "fraught with fraud and abuse."

He instead called for a law that would allow the state to withhold sales tax revenue from cities that defund police, vowed to fight federal government overreach by the incoming Biden administration and expressed a desire to make Texas a second amendment sanctuary state.

“He’s talking about issues that don’t matter to Texans,” said Abhi Rahman, communications director for the Texas Democratic Party. “He’s talking about issues that really stand to benefit himself.”
 

NY: FPC and FPF Urge US Supreme Court to Restore the Right to Carry Arms

Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) and Firearms Policy Foundation (FPF) announced the filing of an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court in the case of NYSRPA v. Corlett, a case involving the right to bear arms in public. The brief is available at FPCLegal.org.

New York State forbids ordinary law-abiding citizens to carry a firearm outside the home without a license. To acquire a licence, an applicant must demonstrate a “proper cause.” This requires more than just a desire to exercise the right protected by the Second Amendment. It requires more than a desire to protect one’s self or family, more than good moral character and the want to carry a weapon, and more than living or working in a high-crime area.

Just two weeks after Gov. Mike DeWine reluctantly signed a so-called “Stand Your Ground” bill into law, two Democratic legislators are pushing in the new Ohio General Assembly term to have it repealed.

The passage of Senate Bill 175 during a lame-duck session last month marked a significant policy victory for Ohio gun advocates. The bill removed from state law a person’s “duty to retreat” from a confrontation before using deadly force against a perceived threat.

Additionally, though anti-gun groups are sounding an alarm about the increase in gun purchases, “The highest overall firearm sales increase comes from Black men and women, who show a 58.2% increase in purchases during the first six months of 2020 versus the same period last year,” meaning the outcry over the increase in sales is aimed at disarming the very people these groups claim to want to protect.

“Come and Take It,” read Sen. Ted Cruz’s mask at the inauguration of President Joe Biden.

This message to an incoming president made it abundantly clear that Cruz, and those who recognize the constitutional right to keep and bear arms, will be ready to put up strong opposition should the Biden administration attempt to curtail your rights.

As it turns out, the particular phrase on Cruz’s mask has roots in Texas, stemming from the Texas Revolution; specifically the Battle of Gonzales.

Union County Sole Commissioner Lamar Paris adopted a resolution in support of the Second Amendment during January’s commission meeting.

The resolution cited that it’s a Constitutional right for people to “keep and bear arms” as well as the Georgia Constitution which prohibits the state from infringing on that right.

Paris and Sheriff Mack Mason expressed their support for the Second Amendment and for the rights of citizens. They asked the governor and General Assembly to “take no action which would violate the freedoms guaranteed in both Constitutions.”

MT: Gun issues weighted down with partisanship

Gun debates have especially succumbed to flagrant partisanship, with politicians so beholden to the party line that there is little room for conversation that deviates from “Second Amendment rights” on the one hand to “gun control at all costs” on the other. HB 102, which would permit campus concealed carry, follows this pattern, as evidenced by its passage in a straight party-line vote. The specter of the Second Amendment demands unthinking Republican support for all pro-gun positions, despite contravening evidence, common sense, or historical precedent. On all three levels, our elected representatives in the Montana Senate should oppose this bill.

Demand is booming for guns and tactical gear following the 2020 presidential election and this week's inauguration. And stores in Lafayette are having trouble keeping pace.

Supplies at Emergency Response Gear have been flying off the shelves faster than employees can keep them stocked.

"We get it in, a lot of times they don't even get it out on the shelves, and it's gone already," says staff member Joy Rhode.

Capitol Police are investigating an incident in which a Republican lawmaker was blocked from entering the House chamber after setting off a metal detector while apparently carrying a concealed gun.

Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., set off the metal detector while trying to enter the chamber Thursday afternoon. The metal detectors were installed after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol, which left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer. The incident was witnessed by a reporter from the HuffPost website.

After setting off the machine, Harris was asked to step aside for further screening. At that time, an officer discovered Harris was carrying a concealed gun on his side, according to the reporter.
