The Second Amendment right to firearms commerce

"Last week the Harvard Law Review published an on-line symposium about current Second Amendment issues in the lower federal courts. My essay addressed a question on which a split is developing between the Fourth and Seventh Circuits: does the Second Amendment include the right to engage in firearms commerce, such as by operating a gun store?"

"... the answer is clearly yes: The American Revolution was caused in part by the British monarchy’s efforts to eliminate firearms commerce in America. The Heller decision recognizes a right to engage in firearms commerce; this right is not unlimited, and so the commercial sale of firearms can be subjected to conditions and qualifications, but there is still a right to firearms commerce." ...

"Newsmax is reporting today that alarms are being raised about a new surge of government ammunition buying, and a Bellevue-based gun rights advocate is among those keeping a close eye on these purchases."

"Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, told Newsmax that 'a highly unusual amount of ammunition (is) being bought by the federal agencies over a fairly short period of time.' The U.S. Postal Service is reportedly soliciting for 1.5 million rounds, while the State Department has a Friday deadline for a separate ammunition purchase." ...

"Don't count on an apology from Mark Farner for writing what's becoming an anthem for some gun rights advocates."

"Farner helped start Flint's own Grand Funk Railroad ... in the late 1960s, but he said this week that he's no pacifist when it comes to guns."

"'There's no other way for me to protect my family except that gun,' Farner said. 'The world is a crazy place. Look what happened to poor John Lennon. ...'"

"Farner has noticed the attention that a song he wrote nearly 40 years ago for the final Grand Funk album, 'Don't Let 'Em Take Your Gun,' has been getting recently -- and he doesn't mind a bit."

[Note: we've put in a call to Remington.] According to our informant, TFG will merge AAC and TAPCO to create a new, as-yet-unnamed firearms accessory brand. If so, it’s a bold, not-to-say reckless move; both Tapco and AAC have considerable brand recognition.

"Writing for slate.com, psychologist Laura Hayes [above] reckons mental illness isn’t such a big deal, gun violence-wise. 'Violent crimes committed by people with severe mental illnesses get a lot of attention, but such attacks are relatively rare. Paolo del Vecchio of the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has said, 'Violence by those with mental illness is so small that even if you could somehow cure it all, 95 percent of violent crime would still exist.' Yes, but if vilifying mentally ill people (and taking away their guns) saves just one life . . . I kid. And kudos to Dr. Hayes for putting things in perspective. Oh wait. Oh dear . . ." ...

"Although a staunch defender of Second Amendment rights, I don’t see the wisdom in open carry of pistols, especially without training."

"Strapping a pistol on your belt makes a strong statement that sometimes inflames others similar to a person wearing a very offensive T-shirt. I can envision a 300-pounds “Bubba” with his girlfriend and after four beers passing a gun-toting person on the sidewalk that has that 'attitude look' on his face. Alcohol and pistols don’t mix, another reason for not having open or concealed pistols in bars. Police will now have additional considerations when it becomes necessary to deal with people walking around with loaded pistols." ...
