MI: Michigan judge halts Benson's ban on open carry of guns at polling places

Michigan Court of Claims Judge Christopher Murray issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday that effectively halts Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson's directive banning the open carry of guns near polling locations on Election Day.

Attorney General Dana Nessel announced almost immediately after the decision was issued that her office would appeal to the Court of Appeals "as this issue is of significant public interest and importance to our election process."

The edict by Benson "smacks of an attempt at legislation" and lacks public input instead of following the regular rule-making process, Murray said during a Tuesday emergency hearing.
 

MI: State files emergency appeal against injunction that stops ban of firearms at polling places

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel filed an emergency appeal against an injunction that stopped the ban on open carry firearms at the polls.

On Tuesday, Court of Claims Judge Christopher Murray issued a preliminary injunction that stops the ban on open carry guns at the polls.

The ban directive was issued by the Michigan Secretary of State to prevent voter intimidation.

An attorney for the state argued before the judge that the ban was issued because of open carry protests inside and outside of the state capitol over the Governor's COVID lockdown orders and the criminal case against 14 men in an alleged plan to kidnap the Governor.

She also told the judge they have heard poll workers are afraid to work on election day.

Will you protect your family at the ballot box?

A handful of billionaires want to control our media, our legal system, and they want us disarmed. Some of these elites are from China and some are from the USA.

Seizing power may make the world safer for them, but that doesn’t make it safe for me. I doubt it is safer for you either.

Hundreds of thousands in Michigan own guns, have Concealed Pistol Licenses, and have been in open carry protests in Lansing over Governor Whitmer’s COVID-19 lockdown orders.

They believe they have become unfairly targeted in the heated debate over open carry guns at the polls on election day.

The legalities are now in the Michigan Court of Appeals.

Court of Claims Judge Christopher Murray shot down the ban on guns issued by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel appealed and says this will be resolved by Tuesday.

The U. S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) has taken on enormous and disturbing super-legislative powers undercutting voter rights, crushing labor protections, and undermining much needed environmental safeguards. Soon they will decide our health care. In the face of a climate crisis and our failing democracy, shifting legislative functions to an unelected, unaccountable body is a perilous step.

Also listed as an expert witness for the defense is Andrew Branca, a Denver lawyer who specializes in self-defense cases, instruction and speaking on the topic. His website's tag line reads, "Carry A Gun So You're Hard To Kill, Know The Law So You're Hard To Convict."

Two former homicide detectives are expected to discuss "the apparent lack of investigation prior to the filing of the criminal complaint." One of them is retired Milwaukee Police Lt. Steve Spingola, now a regular on the Oxygen network true-crime TV show "Cold Justice."

Nowhere are you likely to find more enthusiastic and conscientious gun owners than here in Wyoming. Whether used for hunting, for sport, or self-defense, firearms are an important part of our heritage. We take the exercise of our Second Amendment rights seriously, and are equally devoted to responsible gun ownership.
 

Democrat plans to end the Second Amendment vs. Reality

Joe Biden and his administration have stated clearly that the Second Amendment is on the chopping block if he is elected. Let us examine their proposals versus reality:

1.Banning of modern sporting rifles, known to liberals as "assault weapons." Formerly liberals called these "assault rifles," but quietly changed the term to cover anything they disliked. This ban includes the very popular AR15, M1A, M1 carbine, AK platforms, most anything with a detachable magazine. Most of these arms have been with us 60-100 years.

South County saw its first crime charged as vehicle hijacking in August when a man and woman were charged with murder after they tried to carjack a man at the Classic Car Wash on Lemay Ferry Road, but the victim shot and killed their 18-year-old accomplice in self-defense, according to police accounts. In addition to the murder charge, the man and woman were also charged with armed criminal action, vehicle hijacking and various other felonies.
 

AL: Judge Kelley breaks down upcoming constitutional amendments up for vote

Amendment V and Amendment VI only involve laws in Franklin County and Lauderdale County but the entire state must approve them. These amendments “provide that a person is not liable for using deadly physical force in self-defense or defense of another person on the premises of a church under certain conditions.” Kelley said that these amendments are puzzling because the state already has laws on the books that would allow for people to defend themselves anywhere, not just in churches.

We’ve talked a lot about handguns, but one thing that we haven’t delved into is the different actions. You may have heard them referred to as single-action, double-action, SA/DA, SAO and so on, but what are the differences really, and how to they apply to you?

The best-known options are single-action and double-action. Those usually apply to revolvers, but there are single-action and double-action semi-automatic pistols too. They can be confusing, but there is an easy way to remember them: What happens when you pull the trigger?

If you want a clear indication that despite the media’s pronouncements, this election is nowhere close to being a blowout, you can look no further than Minnesota’s Senate race. The potential for an upset in this state was noted before, and with less than a week before Election Day, it’s worth a closer look.

The race between incumbent Tina Smith and former Representative Jason Lewis is currently rated as a Toss-Up by RealClearPolitics. But the trend shows more – Smith has been in an apparent freefall, going from a 10-point lead in September to a one-point lead.

2. Pro-gun
The Republicans are not “pro-gun.” They are pro-intimidation. They are pro-anarchy. They are pro-vigilante justice. While the Second Amendment is (arguably) about the right to self-defense—as written, it’s about militias and national defense—it does not in any way, shape or form empower one class of people over and at the expense of another class. As it is, Republican jurists have repeatedly seen what they want to see so that the desire for peace and security is second fiddle to the desire for unlimited firepower. It’s no coincidence the Republicans went gun-nuts after the election of the first Black president. Democracy is no longer a means to power. It is now an obstacle.
 

Two Law Professors Seek to Have Those with Mental Issues Voluntarily Waive Their Second Amendment Rights

Two law professors have proposed a plan they believe could help save lives: the right not to bear arms.

Ian Ayres, a professor at Yale Law School and Fredrick Vars, a professor at the University of Alabama Law School, believe people should be able to voluntarily waive their Second Amendment rights by signing a statement to be entered into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) that would prevent them from buying a gun at a dealer.

Versions of "Donna's Law" are pending in 12 states and have passed in Washington state and Virginia.

The Second Amendment right to bear arms cannot coexist with the First Amendment “right of the people peaceably to assemble.” The presence of counterprotesters carrying deadly weapons has had a chilling effect on the rights of others to engage in expressive association. When men wearing body armor and carrying AR-15s chose to attend a campaign event at Kent State University in September 2019, former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke was right to call out their action as an effort “to intimidate.”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
You are bound to meet misfortune if you are unarmed because, among other reasons, people despise you....There is simply no comparison between a man who is armed and one who is not. It is unreasonable to expect that an armed man should obey one who is unarmed, or that an unarmed man should remain safe and secure when his servants are armed. In the latter case, there will be suspicion on the one hand and contempt on the other, making cooperation impossible. — Niccolo Machiavelli in "The Prince."
