Why Trump’s new Commission on Unalienable Rights is likely to upset the human rights community

Another likely commission favorite will be the right to individual self-defense as a justification for opposing international and domestic gun control. The National Rifle Association and its foreign allies already argue that the right to own a gun is basic to self-defense and fundamental to all other human rights. At the NRA convention in April, President Trump publicly repudiated the Arms Trade Treaty regulating the international gun trade as a threat to Americans’ Second Amendment freedoms.

Carlson is the author of “Citizen-Protectors: The Everyday Politics of Guns in an Age Of Decline,” and as part of her research, she became an NRA-certified instructor. She said plenty of that training is about the basics of shooting skills and safety.

After several of their priority bills failed to gain traction, some gun rights advocates said House and Senate leadership failed them. Now they’re calling on Gov. Greg Abbott to veto a line item in the state budget they say would add insult to an injurious legislative session.

OR: Shots Fired: Local Gun Activity Kept Quiet

About three weeks ago, gunshots were fired on Van Buren Street. Four, maybe five shots cut through the quiet of my neighborhood at 4 a.m., located in a heavily populated area of Corvallis. After hitting the deck, crawling upstairs, and calming down a bit, I battled with the idea of calling the police. Ultimately, I decided not to, due to self-doubt and a fear of being questioned or having to follow-up with officers for what I assumed would be a fruitless investigation. As far as I could tell (and probably for the same reasons), no one else reported the shots or came to investigate the area, and no police reports were posted online. No one else was even talking about it.

According to the Mass Shooting Tracker, on March 30, 2019, the 172nd U.S. mass shooting of 2019 occurred at Virginia Beach, killing 13 people. Since this article was written, four days later, nine more mass shootings have occurred in the U.S. Mass Shooting Tracker defines a mass shootings as, ”an incident where four or more people are shot in a single shooting spree.” There are many different definitions of mass shootings that can change the exact number recorded each year, but the majority of organizations recording these shootings all put the total number well over 100 this year.

Mass shooters, criminals and the mentally unstable would be of no use in a battle against a tyrannical government. In fact, they would get in the way. So they should not have guns. Congress needs to finally say "no" to the gun lobby and pass legislation to protect the Second Amendment and at the same time protect Madison and the rest of America.

A city in Colorado has declared itself a "Second Amendment sanctuary city" two months after the state's "red flag" gun bill into law.

CBS Denver reports that five members on the Commerce City Council voted for the resolution Tuesday night, two voted against and two abstained from the vote.

In April, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed the Red Flag measure, which allows authorities to take guns from people determined to pose a threat to themselves or others.

Last fall, The Advocate reported on a new type of local sanctuary law being passed in counties around Oregon, known broadly as “Second Amendment sanctuary” laws. They give local law enforcement officials like sheriffs the authority to interpret whether state and federal gun laws conflict with the Second Amendment of the Constitution, and allows them to restrict local resources from being used to enforce conflicting laws.

The Pennsylvania supreme court rules that legal gun owners aren’t second-class constitutional citizens. SCOTUS, take note.

They claimed there had not been any mass murder with firearms since the law was passed.

The latest mass public shooting/murder occurred in Darwin, Australia.

Second-Amendment advocates are calling out the hypocrisy of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, after a 2008 letter resurfaced undermining her recent attacks on the National Rifle Association.

Gillibrand is as notorious for her flip–flops on significant policy issues as former Vice President Joe Biden is for his friskiness or Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., for her cultural appropriation.

Grassroots Illinois-based Second Amendment organization Guns Save Life filed an important NRA-supported case challenging the very foundations of Illinois gun law. Following an early adverse ruling the group filed an expedited appeal asking the Illinois Supreme Court to put aside the lower court's ruling and suspend the state's Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Act. NRA has supported and been involved in this case as they are in cases all over the state. The FOID Act requires law-abiding Illinois citizens to obtain and pay for a license from the State before they are allowed to posses or purchase any firearms and ammunition.

Once again, after a senseless act of violence, gun ownership opponents — including those in the news media — rush to penalize millions of lawful firearms owners for something they didn’t do.

The mayhem in Virginia Beach was the act of a man who legally purchased the two pistols recovered by authorities at the scene. He was an employee of the Public Utilities Department, and reportedly had a good work record.

Today, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) and Firearms Policy Foundation (FPF) announced the filing of an important brief before the Colorado Supreme Court in Sternberg v. Colorado, a case challenging the State’s ban on so-called “large-capacity” firearm magazines. The brief may be viewed at www.firearmspolicy.org/legal.

Despite strong protections for the right to keep and bear arms in Colorado’s constitution, the State’s General Assembly enacted a ban on so-called “large-capacity magazines.” The law barred the sale, possession, and transfer of such magazines after July 1, 2013.

In 2016, the disabled U.S Army vet purchased a suppressor to use on his firearms during target shooting to prevent further damage to his hearing.

Kansas has a law called the Second Amendment Protection Act. The law states that firearms made within the borders of the state and kept only within Kansas are exempt from national firearms regulations.

U.S. Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) might be gunning to outdo President Barack Obama’s “best gun salesman” title. That’s right. He’s at it again, reminding every law-abiding gun owner and potential voter of what’s truly at stake in the next election.

Rep. Swalwell reiterated his threat of mass gun confiscation this week. He aired this threat on ABC’s “The View,” couching it as a mandatory “buyback” that would strip the more than 16 million modern sporting rifles from legal ownership should he be elected president.

Kris Brown, the president of the gun reform advocacy group Brady, says that an upcoming special legislative session focusing on gun control in Virginia ー called by the state’s governor following the fatal shooting of 12 people at a public works building in Virginia Beach last Friday ー is necessary and vital.

“I think the governor is very rightly saying votes and laws, not thoughts and prayers,” she said.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Let us contemplate our forefathers, and posterity, and resolve to maintain the rights bequeathed to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. The necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that `if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom.' It is a very serious consideration...that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event." --Samuel Adams, speech in Boston, 1771
