New York City Mayor Eric Adams predicted doom and gloom for the Big Apple on Thursday and said residents of the city should be “very afraid” if the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down the state’s concealed carry law.

“After what we saw the Supreme Court did on abortion, we should be very afraid,” Adams told reporters at an even in Harlem, referencing the leaked draft opinion that indicated a majority of the justices are ready to overturn Roe v. Wade, the New York Daily News reported.

“In densely populated communities like New York, this ruling could have a major impact on us,” the mayor said. “So we are now looking with our legal experts to see what we can do. … But we should all be concerned.”

Senators are openly calling for court-packing again and that’s before the Supreme Court has rendered a final opinion on New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen or finalized the opinion of the leaked abortion draft decision. Even before the nine justices heard arguments on the New York case challenging the states arbitrary and restrictive “may issue” concealed carry permit criteria, there were calls for court-packing.

Now, come November, that Legislature is asking Iowa’s voters to make it nearly impossible to reinstate any popular common-sense gun laws — or adopt any new ones. Unlike previous changes, this one requires an amendment to Iowa’s Constitution. Amendments lock in changes for years to come, requiring multiple legislative votes by different assemblies and, ultimately, a majority vote by the people of Iowa.

Dougherty showed police to his truck, parked off-campus near the corner of North 14th Street and West State Street, where his handgun was locked away. There was no evidence of a threat or that Dougherty broke any laws, according to Williams.

The district originally suspended Dougherty for nine days and barred him from walking at graduation, according to his mother Jessica Dougherty. The district later reduced Daniel's punishment and will allow him to walk in the graduation ceremony.

A Nassau County, N.Y., rule that requires citizens who lose their license to own handguns to surrender all their guns, including their rifles, may violate the Second Amendment as applied to a challenger of the law, the Second Circuit said Thursday.

Victor Juzumas, who was a customs broker, lost his pistol license after pleading guilty to a charge connected to a drug trafficking scheme. Under New York law, his pistol license was revoked and he was required to surrender all of his guns to the county.
 

NY: Under the gun: Firearm violence is getting worse in America, and the Supreme Court could make things much worse

America has long been flooded with handguns and assault rifles. Today, it is utterly awash, unable to keep its head above water. Such easy access to deadly weapons, combined with a pandemic that’s unleashed economic and societal ills and statutes that in some cases have made it easier for shooters to escape consequences, is sending ever more Americans to graveyards.

And if the Supreme Court this summer issues an expansive ruling invalidating strict state concealed-carry permitting laws, all this will be mere prelude to far greater carnage. Thursday, Mayor Adams said, “Be very afraid” of this possibility. We say amen.

Yesterday, the Colorado Legislature adjourned from its 2022 Legislative Session, having passed some good, and some bad, legislation in the process.

This year, the legislature sent two gun bills to the desk of Governor Jared Polis: pro-gun, House Bill 22-1168 and anti-gun, House Bill 22-1086. Both measures were signed into law.

Signs line Willow Creek Road in Eagle, reading ‘build the gun range away from our homes, our horses and our hills.’ They refer to a proposed 80-acre target shooting range in the eagle foothills, one that the city of Eagle is pushing heavily.

The city heard from the public over the past three months and said it will update its ‘shooting sports park’ plan based on feedback, but many feel the city will not listen to them, including people who live right next to the proposed site, along with people who use the land every day.

Tami Bromley has ridden her horse out here for decades, where access to trails, open space and tranquility is unparalleled.

Armenia’s ruling party is seeking to significantly loosen the rules for civilians to obtain guns, proposing new legislation that they say will help the country better defend itself in the wake of the 2020 military defeat to Azerbaijan. But opponents of the bill worry that it could lead to an increase in gun-related crime in the country.

The bill, introduced by members of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s ruling Civil Contract party on April 18, would reduce the requirements for first-time buyers of rifles, eliminate limits on purchases of ammunition, and extend the term of validity for weapons licenses. It also adds some new regulations, forcing new licensees to pass an exam and raising the age for legal gun ownership from 18 to 21.

Around 10:25 PM, a man walked to his residence when a woman confronted him. Police believe this to be a domestic-related incident, but we don’t know if the two were boyfriend and girlfriend or maybe the two were related. In any case, the woman pointed a gun at the man.

Fearing for his life, the man drew his concealed carry gun and shot the woman, hitting her in the shoulder. The man then went into his residence and called the police. Once they arrived on the scene, they found the wounded woman and a gun. She was transported to the hospital and is in fair condition.

Throughout the trial, Harris’ attorney claimed that the gun was fired in self-defense. He said Jones tried to take the gun from Harris.

Nelson went on to write at length about the history of colonial militias, which generally included men starting at age 16. Combining colonial history with 19th and 20th century history relating to the age of majority, the panel concluded that the Constitution affords young adults the right to keep and bear arms.

“Because that right includes the right to purchase arms,” wrote Nelson, “both California laws burden conduct within the scope of the Second Amendment.”

“We hold that California’s ban is a severe burden on the core Second Amendment right of self-defense in the home,” the 9th Circuit said.

Semi-automatic rifles are “the quintessential self-defense weapon,” the appeals court said.

“Semi-automatic rifles are able to defeat modern body armor, have a much longer range than shotguns and are more effective in protecting roaming kids on large homesteads, are much more precise and capable at preventing collateral damage, and are typically easier for small young adults to use and handle.”

A 24-year-old man was standing in front of his house in the 2200 block of S. 6th Street near West Moyamensing Avenue around 11:30 p.m. when a 30-year-old rode up on a bicycle, pulled a gun, and announced his intention to rob the 24-year-old, WPVI-TV reported.

Gun Owners of America (GOA) and Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC) won a preliminary injunction against Mecklenburg County, North Carolina Sheriff, and reality TV star Garry McFadden.

Residents of the state need a handgun purchase permit or a concealed carry permit to buy a handgun in North Carolina. Local Sheriff’s departments issue these permits within the state. During the COVID pandemic, the Mecklenburg Sheriff’s Department fell behind on issuing permits. According to state law, the Sheriff has 45 days to issue the permit. It took up to ten months for the Sheriff’s Department to issue either permit.
