"Significantly, the KTNV 'legitimate news media / real reporter' story mentioned none of this. I guess letting Nevadans know outside special interests are trying to buy an election isn't newsworthy and/or doesn't help advance the agenda."

"The only two drawbacks I can see are getting the police unions to go along with this (you’ll recall so-called 'smart guns' were initially developed due to cops being disarmed in 'takeaway' incidents, but they made sure they were exempted from laws requiring 'personalized' firearms), and then deciding who gets to control the On/Off switch.

"Governments, right?"
 

NY: Activists outraged: Registration does lead to confiscation

Police in Buffalo, N.Y. are demonstrating what gun rights activists across the map have been saying for years – and gun prohibition lobbyists have been denying – about how registration leads to confiscation as they will reportedly begin confiscating guns legally owned by people who have recently passed away, according to a report yesterday on Fox News.
The report has outraged members of at least one popular firearms forum, Defensive Carry.com, along with the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association (NYSRPA). It is news that puts the lie to claims by anti-gunners that gun owners needn’t be concerned about gun registration.

As mothers in black urban areas learn that they have the right to be armed, and to protect their children and themselves, the support for gun control will continue to drop.

It was only a few years ago that police would simply confiscate any gun that they came across in a black urban area. I heard of this practice from students and former police officers.
 

WA: Seattle Officers Appeal Dismissal of Use-of-Force Lawsuit, Focus on City

Late last month almost 120 Seattle police officers saw their lawsuit challenging the department’s new use-of-force policy thrown out by U.S. District Court.

Now they’re back—89 of them, at least—asking the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse the decision.

This is just the latest scene in the very lengthy production that has the feds, SPD, the city, officers, and citizens battling over just how we will be policed.

To be eligible for a license to carry firearms in Massachusetts, an applicant must provide the appropriate licensing authority with, among other things, proof of residency, age, and U.S. citizenship. The constitutionality of these requirements is not at issue. [The citizenship requirement is likely unconstitutional, at least as to noncitizens who are permanent residents, see, e.g., this post and this one, but that is a story for another day. -EV]

Growing acceptance of medical marijuana paired with laws that make using the drug legal has some gun buyers in a pickle.

In the Federal Firearms Transaction Record, a form that a gun buyer must fill out to purchase a firearm asks "are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to marijuana..."

A Texas state representative filed legislation Monday that would prohibit enforcement of federal gun control laws in the state.

H.B. 176 was introduced by state Representative Tim Kleinschmidt, who represents several counties in central Texas. The bill would deem all federal restrictions “invalid” and “not enforceable,” according to the Tenth Amendment Center. It specifically covers any federal regulation that:

Plaintiffs include the cities of Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Lancaster as well as state Sen. Daylin Leach, D-17, of Montgomery County, and state senators Lawrence Farnese and Vincent Hughes, both Democrats from Philadelphia.

Backing their effort is CeaseFirePA, a coalition of mayors, police chiefs, religious leaders, community organizations, and other Pennsylvanians dedicated to eliminating gun violence.

Today, state Senator Mike Green (SD-31) received the Defender of Freedom Award from the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action in recognition of his tireless efforts to defend liberty and protect the interests of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen in Michigan.

During his tenure in the Michigan Legislature, Mike Green has been a proven and consistent advocate of your Right to Keep and Bear Arms and has fought to protect Michigan’s rich hunting heritage. Senator Green was the primary sponsor and vocal advocate for some of the most significant firearm-related bills to pass in the Michigan Legislature over the past two decades.

Ed Peruta: Fan of gun permits, scourge of public agencies

In San Diego, Edward Peruta is known as the enemy of the county’s strict concealed-carry gun permit policies, last week winning a federal appeals court ruling.

In his home state, Connecticut, he’s known as the scourge of virtually every public agency. He’s tangled with school districts, zoning officials, a town manager, police officers. In 2009, he sued Hartford, arguing that the city’s new parking meters infringed on his freedom to travel.

He lost that case, but none of his passion.

“I’m not a guy who backs down too easy,” he said, “if I know I’m right.

The Ohio Senate had hearings Wednesday on several bills to change the state's gun laws, including a provision that would provide legal protections for residents defending themselves during violent attacks.

HB 203 passed the Ohio House a year ago on a vote of 62-27, over objections from black lawmakers and others who say it amounts to the kind of "stand your ground" policies that have sparked controversy in other states.

Proponents, however, say the proposed legislation and laws in place in Florida, for example, are different.

Ruger has teamed up with Davidson’s for an exclusive limited-edition run of LC9s and LCP pistols with Muddy Girl frames, one of the most popular new camo prints around.

Muddy Girl guns are making it big with women and girls who want products marketed for women but aren’t satisfied with the “shrink it and pink it” standard.

While these are compact guns and they’ve got more than a little pink, they’re just as much gun as the original versions. The Muddy Girl LC9s and LCP are functionally the same as the standard models with an edgy new look.

Gun control advocates, after orchestrating a successful ballot measure to expand background checks in Washington state, are mounting a similar "common-sense gun laws" campaign in Nevada.

On November 12, Nevadans for Background Checks delivered nearly 250,000 signatures to the Clark County Clerk in Las Vegas—they needed 101,667 signatures—to place an initiative on the November 2016 ballot asking voters to approve a proposal to require background checks on all gun sales and transfers, including at gun shows and online, similar to the measure Washington voters passed on November 4
 

Harry Reid to Take One Last Shot at the Second Amendment in the Lame Duck Session

Harry Reid and his minions now will try to shove down our throats all of the anti-gun legislation and nominees they were afraid to reveal before the elections — when voters still had the option to punish them by throwing them out of office.

As it turns out, gun owners in most states knew exactly what Reid had in mind when they went to the polls on November 4. And, as a result, anti-gun hypocrites like Arkansas’ Mark Pryor, Louisiana’s Mary Landrieu, North Carolina’s Kay Hagan, Alaska’s Mark Begich, and Colorado’s Mark Udall are pretty much “dead ducks.”

Making good on a promise made after the recent win in Washington state, a gun control group submitted signatures for a ballot referendum in Nevada this week.

The group, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety and others submitted 246,674 signatures collected in the past year to Clark County election officials in efforts to move forward an initiative to be sent to voters in the state. For the effort, Everytown is allied with a local organization, Nevadans for Background Checks and is buoyed by strong poll data in the state that would tend to suggest residents would support universal background checks.

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today said the announcement by Buffalo, N.Y. police that they will begin confiscating guns registered to recently deceased citizens “is not simply cold-hearted, it is ghoulish.”

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said a report on Fox News affirmed something that gun rights advocates have contended for years: “Gun registration leads to confiscation.”

The Washington State Patrol say troopers won't arrest demonstrators who plan to exchange guns at the capitol in protest of Washington's new background check law.

The demonstrators plan to bring guns to the state capitol Dec. 13 in protest of I-594 and exchange them in what they claim would be a violation of the measure passed last month. The Secretary of State will certify I-594 on Dec. 4.

"We're going to pass guns. We're going to encourage people to freely buy and sell guns. We're going to violate I-594 in every possible way because it's void and we're declaring it publicly that I-594 will not be tolerated,"

Police in Buffalo, New York, have taken the late Charlton Heston’s famed “cold, dead hands” National Rifle Association speech a little too literally and are trolling local obituaries in search of the firearms of deceased gun permit holders.

According to the local WGRZ, Buffalo Police told reporters last week that they are taking on a new effort to identify members who may be holding on to the firearms of deceased residents.
