MI: Michigan gun groups sue Benson to open carry at election polling sites
Submitted by: Corey Salo

Three gun rights groups sued Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on Thursday, demanding the right to openly carry firearms at or near polling places on Election Day.

Benson moved to ban the practice last week, declaring that the presence of firearms at voter precincts “may cause disruption, fear or intimidation for voters,” election workers or others.

Her guidance would bar openly carried firearms within 100 feet of polling places on Nov. 3. Those with a concealed carry license can carry guns, except in buildings that already ban concealed carry, such as schools or churches.

Her support of basic gun safety doesn’t cause me to waver in my support of her campaign one bit.

I also respect that Barbara approaches this issue as a physician. She knows we can protect the rights of gun owners while also protecting the health and safety of our communities. I know she’s a thoughtful, moderate leader who is committed to finding solutions that protect our rights, keeps us safe and keeps guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists.

While Trump has multiple roads to victory, his most likely route hinges on winning two crucial battleground states: Florida and Pennsylvania. If he can claim both and hold onto other Sun Belt states he narrowly carried in 2016 — North Carolina and Arizona — while playing defense in Georgia and Ohio, which he won handily in 2016 but where Biden is now competitive, he will win.

With the final presidential debate tonight, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden will have one final chance to publicly discuss each other’s views on your Second Amendment rights.

The first debate between the two nominees skirted the issue, as did the vice-presidential debate. Though there are many questions that should still be asked about his and Kamala Harris’ platform, it’s worth revisiting something Biden said during the first debate.

Black Lives Matter Sacramento is taking new aim in their efforts to keep their community safe. The group is looking for sponsorships to get black community members trained in gun safety.

They are calling it a harsh realization in a world that fails to protect black people.

“We need to be armed. There is nothing wrong with it,” said Black Lives Matter Sacramento founder Tanya Faison.
 

The Second Amendment is as necessary today as it has ever been

In the summer of 2020, riots and looting broke out across the United States. In cities from Seattle to New York, police were ordered to stand down and let the riots and looting take their course. The lesson from these events is that you cannot rely on the police to protect your life and property from criminal aggression. And that makes the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms more important than ever.
 

AL: Talladega County voters will consider constitutional amendments at polls next month

Talladega County Amendment 1 is a bit more complicated. According to the language of the amendment, it provides “that a person is not liable for using deadly physical force in self-defense or in defense of another person on the premises of a church under certain conditions.”

Again, this amendment would only apply to Talladega County, but voters in Talladega and every other county in the state will also be weighing in on identical amendments (statewide amendments numbers 5 and 6) that would apply only in Franklin and Lauderdale counties.

In what appears to be a first in Colorado, elected leaders in Aurora on Monday banned no-knock raids by police -- the latest effort by city leaders to grapple with law enforcement tactics that have come under scrutiny nationwide.

The City Council voted 7-3 to prohibit police from forcibly entering a property without first identifying themselves as officers of the law. The measure was brought forward by Councilwoman Angela Lawson following the death of Breonna Taylor, who was shot in March by police as she slept in her own home.
 

TX: 'The difference in demographics has been staggering': First-time gun owners part of record-setting year for Texas

In a record year of gun sales, many have been bought by first-time gun owners, according to store owners and background check statistics.

The FBI has reported more background checks for gun buyers this year than during any year since tracking began in 1998.

Texas gun store owners and firearms experts believe most of these new customers have little training on how to handle, store and use the weapons.

Eagle Gun Range owner David Prince said his sales have more than doubled this year compared to last. And many of his customers have told him they are new, first-time gun owners.

A gun violence counselor and employee with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office shot and killed an armed man who tried to rob him at gunpoint, officials confirmed with NBC10.

On Tuesday, shortly before 10 a.m., an armed 31-year-old man tried to rob another man on the 2600 block of North Napa Street in the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood, Philadelphia police said. The second man fired his own weapon, shooting the 31-year-old once in the chest.

The Democratic platform states: “Democrats will ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines. We will incentivize states to enact licensing requirements for owning firearms and extreme risk protection order laws that allow courts to temporarily remove guns from the possession of those who are a danger to themselves or others. We will pass legislation requiring that guns be safely stored in homes. And Democrats believe that gun companies should be held responsible for their products, just like any other business, and will prioritize repealing the law that shields gun manufacturers from civil liability.”
 

CA: Ban of Blackjacks, Billy Clubs, and Batons to go before Ninth Circuit

The Supreme Court of the United States, in a unanimous decision, reversed the Massachusetts Supreme Court, and held that all bearable arms were protected by the Second Amendment, with rare exceptions.

Bearable arms which are in common use for lawful purposes may not be banned, under the Second Amendment. Some enterprising Second Amendment supporters sued the Attorney General of California because the state of California bans blackjacks, billy clubs, and batons for nearly everyone in all circumstances.

Given the Supreme Court decisions of Heller, McDonald, and Caetano, it is hard to see how California AG Becerra can expect to prevail in Fouts v. Becerra (3:19-cv-01662), filed on 1 September 2019.

Glogowski claims Hawley’s “A” rating is not related to his position or actions concerning the 2nd Amendment. SCOPE has consistently overlooked Hawley’s vote cast to fund the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013, commonly known as the NY SAFE Act.

When Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) asked Barrett to further explain how she might determine the original meaning of the Second Amendment, Barrett said, the “original public meaning, not the intent of any particular drafter” is what ultimately matters.

“The law is what the people understand it to be, not what goes on in any individual legislator’s mind,” Barrett said. “I respect you, Senator Lee, but what passes both houses, that’s the law, not any private intentions you have."

Conflict is on America’s streets in 2020, and “tactical apparel” has become a lifestyle industry serving militarized law-enforcement agents and the freelance gunmen who emulate them. Less than two weeks before Election Day, orders are rolling in. Since last year, online purchases have driven a 20-fold jump in sales of goods like the $220 CM-6M gas mask -- resistant to bean-bag rounds -- for Mira Safety of Austin, Texas.

The Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance, Measure 6-181, has made it on the ballot this year in Coos County.

The measure aims to create a sanctuary zone for the Second Amendment. That means Coos County officials would not be able to enforce state and federal gun control regulations if passed.

Paul Muschick, writing about possible new gun controls in The Morning Call, got it wrong.

Would he be so condescending if it was the First Amendment that was being debated? Would he call people pointing to the U. S. Constitution as “worshipers” of the First Amendment as they “scream” about the government trying to take their speech away from law-abiding folks.

Unfortunately, neither right is worth a damn today.
 

The Great Gun-Control Referendum

Americans who hope to discover which gun-control measures will be pursued should the Biden-Harris ticket prevail in November’s presidential election will, for once, have no need of the secret decoder ring that is usually necessary when dealing with gun-control advocates and their platforms.

Typically, gun-controllers like to cloak their plans in euphemisms and obfuscation; they promise to close “loopholes” that are not loopholes, insist on “common-sense” measures that are neither commonly supported nor sensible in nature, proclaim that “nobody is suggesting” what they are suggesting and insist on a dramatic redefinition of elementary terms—“gun safety,” for example.
