Right to Bear Arms? Gun grabbing sweeping the nation

“NRA and CRPA constantly get calls from law abiding people having problems getting their guns back,” said Chuck Michel of Long Beach based Michel & Associates, who represented Roberts in the case. “The state Department of Justice wrongly tells police not to give guns back unless the person can document ownership of the gun and it is registered in the state DOJ’s database. But the law doesn’t require this.”

While Americans have the constitutional rights to keep and bear arms – and protect their property from government’s unlawful seizure – it is not just in California where guns are seized and destroyed illegally, attorneys charge.
 

Fatal police shootings in 2015 approaching 400 nationwide

In an alley in Denver, police gunned down a 17-year-old girl joyriding in a stolen car. In the backwoods of North Carolina, police opened fire on a gun-wielding moonshiner. And in a high-rise apartment in Birmingham, Ala., police shot an elderly man after his son asked them to make sure he was okay. Douglas Harris, 77, answered the door with a gun.
The three are among at least 385 people shot and killed by police nationwide during the first five months of this year, more than two a day, according to a Washington Post analysis. That is more than twice the rate of fatal police shootings tallied by the federal government over the past decade, a count that officials concede is incomplete.
 

The Painless Ladder of Self-Defense Activism

Gun owners talk about inviting more people into the shooting sports and the self-defense community. That is fine and good, but let’s not forget the 110 million gun owners we already have. They do a lot in their communities already. How can we move the needle and support the human right of self-defense with the shooters we already have?

Here is a painless ladder of activism. It is how movements and leaders are made. Step at a time. Take a look and see how high you’ve climbed already. Each of these small steps builds on what came before. It may not seem like much at the time, but each step is a significant accomplishment.

Let me be one of the first to thank you for all you do.

The Justice Department plans move forward this year with more than a dozen new gun-related regulations, according to list of rules the agency has proposed to enact before the end of the Obama administration.
The regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements. Chief among them is a renewed effort to keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable or have been convicted of domestic abuse. ...
“It’s clear President Obama is beginning his final assault on our Second Amendment rights by forcing his anti-gun agenda on honest law-abiding citizens through executive force,” said Luke O’Dell, vice president of political affairs at the National Association for Gun Rights.

On Friday the New Hampshire Senate was scheduled to vote Senate Bill 116 (SB 116) aka Constitutional Carry in a conference of committee to agree with the house changes. The bill will now make its way to Governor Maggie Hassan’s desk.

Hassan already stated, in kabuki theatre with Moms Demand Action of New Hampshire, that she would veto the bill. This is after thousands of women across the state have asked Hassan to pass the bill so they will no longer be discriminated against by their police chiefs. This is after thousands of women across New Hampshire have asked that their rights be restored to what they previously were.

Even with Eric Holder out of the picture, the Department of Justice has gun owners in its sights.

The Department of Justice has announced plans to flex its rule-making muscle to introduce more than a dozen gun control regulations between now and the close of the Obama administration.

No. 1 on the list of proposed regulations will be an effort that purports to prevent the mentally ill and those convicted of domestic violence from purchasing firearms, according to The Hill. Also included will be gun storage requirements and restrictions on high powered handguns.
 

TX: Guns Heading to Texas Campuses After State Vote

Under the measure, private colleges will be able to ban guns, a win for Republicans who had said they didn’t want the Second Amendment to trump private-property rights.
In a concession to Democrats, public colleges will be able to create limited gun-free zones, so long as such designations are “reasonable” and don’t amount to a de facto campus-wide ban.

The bill’s sponsor, Senator Brian Birdwell, a Republican from Granbury, about 70 miles (112 kilometers) west of Dallas, said the opt-out provision was designed to allow guns to be prohibited in places of heightened security, such as biohazard labs, and not in common spaces, such as dormitories or libraries.

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) has proposed a bill that would require gun owners to pay a $10,000 fine or get gun insurance but some gun owners in the Valley are no happy about.

"It's just another example of people who really don't know or appreciate guns and gun owners trying to legislate to us what we can and can't do," said Randall Seekford, gun owner.

Some gun owners are concerned the bill could limit second amendment rights.

It may come as a surprise to some, but a new poll done by Siena College shows that the majority of New York voters are in favor of the gun control law called the SAFE Act.

"What Siena found in this most recent poll is what we have found consistently over the last several years which is that there is very strong support for the SAFE Act among New York voters. In fact, supporters outnumber opponents almost 2 to 1," said Steve Greenberg, Siena pollster.
 

Drug Convictions, Firearms and the Supreme Court

As the Supreme Court pointed out in their May 18, 2015 case of Henderson v. U.S. this is a valid restriction that just needed a little additional explanation. In Henderson, the petitioner had been a member of law enforcement before he was convicted for distributing marijuana. As one can imagine, the gentleman had lawfully owned firearms before being charged. The difficulty began when his conditions of release on bail included surrendering all firearms. This issue was compounded when Mr. Henderson was subsequently convicted on a felony drug offense. The court was asked to address a question that could present in any state or federal trial court: what property rights, if any, does a person have to items he is now barred from possessing?

On Monday, June 1, the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee will hear a number of bills, including Assembly Bill 4218, sponsored by Assembly woman Gabriela Mosquera.

While this legislation may be well-intended, it is fraught with problems that could potentially ensnare law-abiding gun owners like we have repeatedly witnessed in New Jersey. When it comes to something as serious as denying someone their fundamental, constitutional rights, due process under the law is absolutely necessary.

The ‘Open Carry’ gun law in the state of Texas, may tempt the mentality of many die-hard gunslingers. The Wild West may have died out almost one hundred years ago, but it may soon be legal for Texans to open carry. This has got many people wondering if it may tempt criminal elements who have the mentality of outlaws such as Buckshot Roberts, to make a comeback. The state of mind of some gunslingers induces fear in many people.

Hollywood star Vince Vaughn has insisted that guns should be allowed in US schools – saying that banning them is like banishing forks “to stop making people fat”.

The 45-year-old told GQ magazine that he supported the right to own a gun.

Despite a series of shootings in US schools, asked whether guns should be allowed, he said: “Of course. You think the politicians that run my country and your country don’t have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do.

“And we should be allowed the same rights. Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won’t rid the world of criminality.”

The Hill reported Saturday that the Department of Justice “plans to move forward this year with more than a dozen new gun-related regulations” that are listed in rules proposed by the agency for enactment during the remaining days of the Obama administration.

It comes as the firearms community is anticipating more talk of gun control from the mainstream press. Part of that concern is a Columbia University weekend workshop for journalists in Phoenix, Arizona organized by the Dart Center in which, complained Fox News contributor John Lott, 15 of the panel’s 17 “experts” were allegedly "gun control advocates."

Recent actions by Washington, D.C., officials prove that there are few things they care more about than keeping guns out of the hands of law-abiding D.C. residents wishing to protect themselves on the mean streets of our nation’s capital.

First, here’s some background.

TX: Concealed handguns coming to Texas campuses

The Texas Legislature has approved allowing license holders to carry concealed handguns on public college campuses - but included a caveat that lets college presidents designate "gun-free zones."

The House voted 98-47 on Sunday to approve the measure, sending ti to Gov. Greg Abbott to be signed into law.

The so-called "campus carry" bill was a priority for gun rights activists, even though many top universities statewide opposed it.

Both chambers previously passed their own versions of the bill, and a weekend agreement between House and Senate negotiators set up final approval.

Opponents won the concession of gun-free zones, though college presidents won't be able to ban handguns on entire campuses.

An investigation is underway after a shooting killed one person and injured two others, and the man who fired the gunshots won’t face charges.

The shootings happened at Bayberry Condominiums on Kalispell Way in Aurora near Alameda Avenue and Chambers Road. District Attorney George Brauchler made a rare appearance in a news conference about the shooting. He made a point of saying just because three young people were shot the case should get serious attention.

The latest dispatch from the United Kingdom’s ongoing campaign to eliminate all forms of armed self-defense seems too incredible to be true. Unfortunately, after tracking down the origin of a publicly distributed statement regarding self-defense products on the country’s “Ask the Police” website, we can confirm that British subjects continue to live at the mercy of their potential attackers. Even to the point of baffling absurdity.
 

NJ: Domestic Violence To Be Used As Cover For Legislative Attack On NJ Gun Owners

The New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider A4218, revising the state’s domestic violence laws, on Monday, June 1 2015 at 1:30 p.m.
Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC) strongly condemns anyone who commits violent aggressive acts against a domestic partner, and believes that such a person should not have access to firearms, and should be punished as severely as possible. Federal law currently provides for this, and New Jersey’s existing domestic violence law is already one of the toughest in the country.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: Life behind the lines in the Democratic People's Republic of New Jersey.
