On Monday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that the right to bear arms has historically also included the right to acquire firearms.

The case, Teixeira v. County of Alameda, is based on Alameda County, Calif., zoning rules for incorporated areas...

Plaintiff John Teixeira had contended that the “500-foot rule” was tantamount to a backdoor ban on gun stores.

Writing in the majority opinion, 9th Circuit Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain emphasized, “Our forefathers recognized that the prohibition of commerce in firearms worked to undermine the right to keep and to bear arms.”

As of December 2015, nearly 99 percent of names listed on the “mental defective” category within the federal gun background check system were from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Grassley’s amendment requires that before the VA reports names to the Department of Justice for eventual placement on the gun ban list, the VA must first find, by judicial order, that a veteran is a danger to himself, herself, or others – a standard which is not currently employed by the VA.

I know this column will be wildly unpopular with many readers.

Honestly, I don’t want to write it. I have received all of the emails on this subject that I care to.

However, to do my part as an honest person seeking to use his voice to advance reasonable conversations on important topics, I have to address this issue again.

The lobbyist driven, legislator endorsed gun culture that conservative politics is espousing as the highest expression of liberty has to be stopped before we don’t recognize America anymore.
 

Leaked audio: Hillary says SCOTUS wrong on 2nd Amendment - promises to fight for gun bans

Just in case you were wondering.

Democrats always like to claim that "no one's coming after your 2nd Amendment rights." Then they blather about hunting for a while before, inevitably, they come after your 2nd Amendment rights.

Recently, Hillary's gun control mask slipped a bit when her daughter Chelsea promised that her mom was eager to return to her gun-grabbing ways. She promised that a Clinton Supreme Court would issue a "definitive ruling" on the subject - by which she meant overturn D.C. vs. Heller - and gut the 2nd Amendment.

“It does feel rather invasive when I’m asking the question,” Stein told LifeZette. She said the American Academy of Pediatrics requests that doctors ask the question, which is on intake forms for new patients and regular checkups. She does so in order to comply.

“It has become more prevalent,” she said. “You feel uncomfortable whether you do it or not. It truly feels like you’re getting into the parents’ business.”

The state’s highest court said Wednesday that a North Charleston woman legally used deadly force in 2012 when she fatally stabbed her boyfriend at their home, a ruling that helps clarify how South Carolina’s “stand your ground” law applies to domestic violence.

A trial judge in Charleston had dismissed the murder charge against 26-year-old Whitlee Jones, who claimed immunity from prosecution under the S.C. Protection of Persons and Property Act. The law allows people in certain situations to use force when faced with serious injury.

A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that a key provision of Washington DC’s concealed carry law was unconstitutional, and ordered DC police to stop requiring residents to prove they have a “good reason” to be issued a concealed carry permit.

The plaintiff, Matthew Grace, is a district gun owner and member of The Pink Pistols, a shooting group that “honors diversity and is open to all shooters regardless of sexual orientation,” with dozens of chapters nationwide.

“We teach queers to shoot. Then we teach others that we have done so,” their website states.

A District of Columbia law that requires applicants for concealed carry permits to provide "a good reason" for needing one violates the Second Amendment, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.

Responding to a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2008 striking down the city's ban on handguns, Washington, D.C., enacted strict new gun control measures last June that banned the open carry of guns in the city and put in place a set of age, criminal and personal history, mental health and physical requirements for people who wished to carry a concealed weapon.

Down in the Golden State, KFSN in Fresno reported yesterday that local law enforcement leaders are mounting a strong opposition to a gun control measure being pushed by anti-gun Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. This initiative would require anyone buying ammunition to pass a background check, and that retailers report all ammunition sales to the state.

KFSN quoted Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, who observed, “Voters should be concerned about passing any additional gun control laws. These laws will not be obeyed by terrorists, gang members, robbers or home invaders.”

According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), gun store burglaries are on the rise -- a 28 percent increase from 2013 to 2015, with more than 1,100 federally licensed gun dealers victimized and more than 12,000 handguns, shotguns and rifles stolen.

Thieves have been using any means necessary to get their hands on valuable firearms, breaking through walls, ceilings and even using blow torches to try to get to the guns.

In one case, the suspects used a big-rig truck cab to smash through the front of a gun store in Ventura, California last March and steal about 15 guns.

The civil trial pitting two wounded Milwaukee police officers against a local gun shop was temporarily derailed Wednesday, as the judge in the case dismissed prospective jurors just before a final jury was expected to be picked.

Milwaukee County Circuit Judge John DiMotto told the jurors there was nothing they did to lead to their dismissal and attributed the unusual move to "issues beyond our control."

The case brought by Officer Jose Lopez and former Officer Alejandro Arce against Badger Guns and its owners is now set to begin jury selection anew on Monday.

The Smithfield Town Council, in a divided vote, has opposed pending legislation that would ban concealed weapons in schools except if carried by law enforcement officials.

The legislation has support from 23 school committees, including the Smithfield School Committee, and nine city and town councils as of Monday afternoon.

Councilors were asked on May 3 to consider a resolution, put forth by the nonprofit group Rhode Island Coalition Against Gun Violence, that supports pending General Assembly companion bills, H-7243 and S-2761. The bills seek to “disallow non-law enforcement to carry concealed firearms onto school grounds.”

Want to know the truth about preventing mass shootings in schools? It can’t be done. Not as long as we continue to live in a gun-hungry culture. One-hundred percent prevention of mass shootings in schools is not possible, nor is it realistic, especially by violent means.
