"A federal judge has granted a preliminary injunction against enforcement by the City of Omaha, NE of an ordinance that prohibits legal non-citizens from registering handguns in the city, in a case brought by the Second Amendment Foundation, the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association and Armando Pliego Gonzalez."

"The order was granted ... while the court considers whether the registration ban for legal immigrants is unconstitutional under the Second Amendment."

"'We’re delighted with the judge’s order,' said SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. 'Mr. Pliego has been a legal permanent resident since 2008, and he jumped through all of the legal hoops to legally purchase a handgun to protect his family ...'" ...
 

Second Amendment Foundation Files Constitutional Challenge Of California Assault Weapons’ Law

"The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of California’s ban on so-called 'assault weapons,' claiming that the statute is 'vague and ambiguous' in its definition of assault weapons, leading to the arrest of a California man on two different occasions."

"SAF is joined in the lawsuit ... by the CalGuns Foundation and Brendan John Richards, an honorably-discharged Marine and Iraq war veteran, who was arrested and jailed in May 2010 and August 2011. On both occasions, charges against Richards were dismissed when it was determined that he had not violated the law because firearms in his possession on both occasions were not 'assault weapons' as defined by California law. ..." ...

Do Jewish ‘Gun Control’ Advocates Fuel Anti-Semitism

of the growing overt anti-Jewish sentiment, Jews remain overwhelmingly supportive of so-called 'gun control' policies. While exact statistics are hard to come by, we can logically extrapolate from the 78% of Jews who voted for Obama in 2008 to conclude that the overwhelming majority of American Jews support the Democrat agenda, including citizen disarmament ..."

"Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership has, for more than twenty years, placed 'gun control' in quotes. This innocuous phrase is actually a form of deceptive semantic trickery. 'Gun control' ALWAYS means gun registration. Gun registration is a means by which governments know which citizens are armed, and with what types of firearms." ...

".300 AAC Blackout is a popular round that is gaining traction in the shooting industry, but ammunition is still rare as hen’s teeth and expensive when you can find it. Click here for a review of the .300 AAC Blackout round we did a while back. The local gun stores have some in stock, but the only flavor available is the 220gr Remington subsonics and they’re asking $30 for 20 rounds. New manufacturers are slowly starting to come online with their own flavors of ammunition, and as a service to my fellow .300 BLK owners I wanted to take a moment and point out a company that is stepping onto the scene with a bang: PNW Arms." ...

Our idea of climate change is, of course, how warm things are for the second amendment.
