... "... As strongly as some may disagree with the methods and message of the protestors, a government with the power to prohibit them is much more to be feared. The issues of legality as far as OA went appeared to center on turning a public space into a squatter’s camp in violation of access and use rules and the ensuing problems that caused. But to be clear, the over-reaction of Mayor Reed’s government to a man lawfully exercising his rights is what shut things down, not the man." ...

"Gun ownership is on the rise in some surprising places. As much as President Obama would have us believe that only small-town yokels 'cling to guns or religion,' a Gallup poll released Wednesday suggests many of the firearms that have been flying off the shelves in the past two years were purchased by Democrats and women. The Second Amendment has truly gone mainstream." ...

"Yesterday’s largely party-line vote by the House Judiciary Committee on H.R. 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act, clearly demonstrates that Democrats remain the party that clings to the notion that gun ownership is a privilege and that a citizen’s right of self-defense ends at state lines." ...

"A pre-2009 Washington state law, under which Yasin Ibrahim was convicted, required aliens to get a license . (A new statute sets up a different licensing scheme for alien gun owners, but that statute wasn’t involved in this case.) Ibrahim was prosecuted under the old law, for having an unlicensed gun. Today’s State v. Ibrahim (Wash. Ct. App.) holds that the old law violated the Equal Protection Clause by unconstitutionally discriminating against noncitizens. And in the process the court says that the law did this 'by denying [legal aliens'] Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.'" ...

"So held a North Carolina trial court in Johnston v. State (Oct. 24, 2011). Richard Johnston had been convicted of 'felonious receipt of stolen property and conspiracy to commit grand larceny' in 1978, and pled no contest 'to fraudulent setting fire, conspiracy, false statement to procure, and conspiracy to receive, receiving, conspiracy to commit larceny and accessory before the fact' in 1981. (The underlying crimes occurred in 1976, and 'did not involve either violence or the use of a firearm.') Since then, Johnston has apparently led a law-abiding life, setting aside 'routine traffic citations and two hunting citations, one of which was dismissed'; he is now 69 years old." ...

... "Haynie, a Pleasanton resident, and Richards claimed they were wrongly arrested and the duo teamed up with Calguns Foundation and the Second Amendment Foundation in a lawsuit demanding California Attorney General Kamala Harris and the Department of Justice start issuing bulletins that help police distinguish guns with 'bullet buttons' from illegal assault rifles."

"But U.S. District Judge Susan Illston refused to issue such an order, saying the defendants had no real reason to believe they were in danger of being arrested again in the future for possessing the weapons." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: So despite what the opening paragraph says, they were not seeking "to interfere with cops' discretion when it comes to making firearms arrests" but rather to have the CA AG provide information to police departments across the state so they can properly enforce the law.
