Karl Racine, the Washington, D.C. attorney general, ordered D.C. government employees to ignore a court order from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The court order was to issue concealed-carry permits without demanding a “good reason,” and to immediately update the forms to no longer require that.

The attorney general's office told reporters they could file any complaints online.

A New York City police officer shown on video pointing his gun at a bystander who was filming a police encounter has been stripped of his gun and badge.
The incident happened Thursday at a public housing complex in Manhattan's Harlem neighborhood.

Ronnie Pinkerton Jr. was in the crowd that witnessed the incident. He told CBS New York the crowd believed the officer was using excessive force.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: Time for NYPD to dump this chump.

Gun owners in Hawaii may soon find their names uploaded to a federal registry of firearms owners maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

In a story reported by the Associated Press (AP), anyone in Hawaii owning a weapon could soon have their names and other personal data sent to the federal government for inclusion in a list known as the “Rap Back,” as part of a bill filed in the state senate.

One of the men involved in the argument eventually pulled a gun on his opponent.

The opponent, now the victim of an assault, left the bar and went to his vehicle in the parking lot to avoid further confrontation. After the victim entered his vehicle, the armed aggressor and another person with him, approached the victim’s car. The aggressor again showed his weapon and began to pull it.

According to police, the intended victim, “fearing for his life”, pulled out his own handgun and fired several rounds at the armed aggressor, hitting him at least once. Police arrived at the scene and the wounded man was transported to the hospital.

Audio proof has emerged proving that pro-gun voices were edited — making respondents appear stumped or unsure — in Katie Couric’s gun control film, Under the Gun.
Breitbart News previously reported that Katie Couric omitted a four-hour interview that had been done with gun scholar John Lott Jr. The Guardian spoke with director Stephanie Soechtig regarding the decision to leave Lott out of the movie, and Soechtig said:
 

MD: Time to 'well regulate' guns

The amendment is short and to the point: "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The focus is on the valid role of state militias such as the Maryland National Guard to be prepared to defend the state from a tyrannical federal or outside power.

Such militias are legal and may not be banned. But even so, the very crystal clear adjective, "well-regulated," is unmistakably front and center. Well-regulated. As in government gun control. It's not just good old common sense, it's Constitutionally required. End of story, National Rifle Association. Pack up your loose marbles and start playing by the rules!
 

HI: Hawaii Would Expose Law-Abiding, Gun-Owning Citizens to Federal Database

Nationally syndicated radio show host Mark Levin explained on his show Tuesday that Hawaii is “trying to expose its law-abiding, gun-owning citizens to a federal database.”

“Here’s Hawaii, through the back door, trying to expose its law-abiding, gun-owning citizens to a federal database,” Levin said. “The federal database was never intended to be used this way. So, the state, rather than protecting its gun owners and its law-abiding citizens – the state turns all their names and data over to the FBI to put in the FBI federal database.”
 

DC: Is DC Disregarding Gun Carry Ruling?

However, DC attorney general evidently feels differently. Karl Racine is being accused of categorically disregarding a judge’s ruling. Writing in The Federalist, Devin Watkins reveals:

“After the order, I went to apply for a concealed-carry permit in the District of Columbia. The police officers there told me the D.C. attorney general’s office had ordered them to ignore the court order and continue to deny applications. Thinking there might be some kind of mistake, I contacted the AG’s office, which explicitly told me if I had a complaint about what they did I could file that complaint online.”
 

WA: Seattle Gun & Ammo Tax Appealed to Higher Court

The National Rifle Association (NRA), the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), and the National Shooting Sports Federation (NSSF), along with some gun owners and gun-store owners, filed suit. They claimed that the tax was in effect a regulation and therefore unconstitutional. Palmer Robinson, a King County (where Seattle is the seat) Superior Court judge, ruled December 22 that the ordinance really was a tax after all and not a regulation, and therefore allowed the tax to be applied starting January 1. Judge Robinson called it an excise tax, similar to “other excise taxes [which] include selective sales taxes on specific products (cigarettes, gasoline, etc.)” and therefore was “a tax [properly] imposed under authority granted to the City.”
 

MO: A real gun + no training = alarming law in Missouri

Missouri lawmakers passed yet another dangerous pro-gun law this year, daring Gov. Jay Nixon to veto it.

And he should do that, because this one would allow people to carry a concealed weapon — with no training and no permit.

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker correctly says that’s preposterous.

“You must have training” to properly handle a gun that can kill others, she said in a recent interview.

Yes, you do, but that’s never been the mantra of the Missouri lawmakers who think the Second Amendment should allow people to carry a firearm anytime they want and almost anywhere.

A national gun violence prevention organization claimed this week that 85 percent of Illinois voters support legislation to require gun dealers to obtain a state license to sell firearms.

The organization called Americans for Responsible Solutions recently surveyed Illinois voters about legislation proposed in Springfield called the Gun Dealer Licensing Act aimed at requiring firearm dealers register with the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, and the results were in favor of the proposal by overwhelming amounts. Of the voters asked downstate, 77 percent said they would support the measure, according to the study. Illinois gun owners supported the measure by 77 percent as well, according to the findings.

The Oklahoma attorney general has issued an opinion that out-of-state handgun licenses obtained by Oklahomans online are as valid as Oklahoma-issued handgun licenses, even if the other state has more lenient requirements.

The opinion, released Friday, states that Oklahoma residents with a “non-resident” handgun license from another state, such as Virginia, and Utah, are as valid as Oklahoma's concealed handgun license.

Women across San Diego are giving a night-on-the-town a whole new meaning as they head to the gun range, trading their purses for pistols.

In fact, more women in San Diego County said they would rather spend their girl's night out shooting a gun with their girlfriends than spending time at a coffee shop, a bar or club, or even doing yoga.

Not only is spending time at the gun range helping women build friendships, but they are also learning to protect themselves by packing heat.

Last Friday at the NRA convention, Donald Trump forcefully repeated his challenge to Hillary Clinton on guns: “As I said before, she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to take your guns away. She wants to abolish — just remember that. … If she gets to appoint her judges, she will abolish the Second Amendment.”

Hillary Clinton tweeted back “You’re wrong, @realDonaldTrump. We can uphold Second Amendment rights while preventing senseless gun violence.”

Right-to-Carry continues to sweep the nation with legislative victories expanding permitless, open and campus carry.

The nation’s Right-to-Carry movement, which began in Florida and then flourished over the past 25 years, is one of the National Rifle Association’s most significant achievements, resulting in every state having at least a minimal carry law on the books. And with the current trend toward so-called “permitless” carry on the upswing in a number of states, the movement is once again gaining a resurgence that will serve to further protect the rights of law-abiding Americans to protect themselves and their families.

An appellate judge upheld an earlier Superior Court judge’s decision that Arthur Vinogradsky was no longer eligible to own a gun, reported NJ Radio 101.5.

Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams insisted Wednesday that the city will be ready for whatever the Republican National Convention may bring, be it protesters or riots. "A lot has been said about whether or not Cleveland is prepared for the RNC in about 50 days here. I have to tell you, we are prepared. I can't stress enough that we are prepared for this," he said.

The city attorney, Richard Hovarth, also announced temporary regulations for the area around the convention, including a ban on bringing lumber, fireworks, explosives, drones, ice chests and coolers, or ladders into the vicinity. Guns, noticeably, were not explicitly banned, although Ohio is an open-carry state.

NH: Gabby Giffords’s Group Pays ‘7-Figure’ Sum for Ad Against Pro-Gun Senator

Gabby Giffords’s gun control group — Americans for Responsible Solutions — is spending seven figures to air an ad against pro-gun Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH).

Ayotte opposed the expanded background checks legislation proposed by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary attack. But Gabby Giffords believes every would-be gun purchaser — private or retail — should have to pass the same background check her attacker, Jared Loughner, passed to acquire his gun.
 

DC: Courts are getting ‘gun rights’ wrong

Much criticism of the gradual expansion of the constitutional right to bear arms by U.S. courts has focused on assault weapons and mass shootings. But gun-rights advocates are conquering another frontier: the regulation of handguns in urban space.

On May 17, a federal district court struck down restrictions on carrying concealed handguns imposed by Washington, D.C. As of Wednesday, if you want to carry a concealed handgun in the nation’s capital, that’s your right. Maybe they should change the Wizards’ name back to the Bullets.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
We'll take one step at a time, and the first is necessarily - given the political realities - very modest. We'll have to start working again to strengthen the law, and then again to strengthen the next law and again and again. Our ultimate goal, total control of handguns, is going to take time. The first problem is to slow down production and sales. Next is to get registration. The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and ammunition (with a few exceptions) totally illegal. — Pete Shields, founder of Handgun Control, Inc., New Yorker Magazine, June 26, 1976, pg. 53
