REP. DAN BISHOP: You know very well that the Heller decision held in 2008, the Supreme Court's decision that weapons that are in common use can’t be banned under the Second Amendment. People have a right to keep them and bear them for self-defense. But that’s what Jerry [Nadler] said. They marked up the bill to ban weapons, the AR-15s and the like, ammunition magazines of which there are tens of millions in the United States, and they're just going to defy the United States Supreme Court. That’s what they've made clear.

You, “law abiding” gun owner insist that your State Legislators enact gun laws that protect your right to own, possess and carry guns in your State. Do you realize that the same laws that grant you the right to posses a gun, also grant your fellow citizens, the same right to own, possess, and carry guns.

Unfortunately, some of these other gunowners will use the gun, authorized by you, to kill your neighbor’s children.

Unjustified imagination is required to claim that these two phrases do not unite to satisfy the need for defense, which, consequently, restricts the main clause’ right to arms to a militia only.

That states have recognized that the Second Amendment applies to militias only and that all other arms rights belong to the states is shown by rights to arms for self-defense.

The attorneys wanted to use those statements to bolster their claims of self-defense, however, trial judge, David Lee, excluded the statements.

The N.C. Court of Appeals concluded that Lee's decision was a prejudicial error that denied Molly Corbett and Thomas Martens the chance to make an effective self-defense claim.

Jack and Sarah, who are in the custody of Tracy Corbett Lynch in Ireland, did not testify at the first trial. But they appeared at the hearing in March and are likely to testify at the re-trial.

“It is abundantly clear that the United States is facing a gun violence crisis that is unique in its deadliness and scale. While mass shootings capture international attention, the use of guns in homicides, suicides, and accidental shootings impose widespread and long-lasting costs. Loss or injury to gun violence is immeasurable, but the economy-wide harms are real and calculable.

“According to new estimates from Everytown for Gun Safety, gun violence costs our economy more than half a trillion dollars every year. "

AMMO, Inc. Announces Launch of Green Streak® Ammunition

The Streak™ is the next generation of visual ammunition featuring one-way luminescent technology (“O.W.L. Technology™), which has been offered by AMMO for a number of years in Red. Unlike its predecessors, this non-incendiary technology does not use any form of pyrotechnic to illuminate the trajectory of the projectile. Instead, it incorporates a patented non-toxic composite that utilizes the light emitted from the ignition of the gun powder to “flash charge” the rear of the projectile. As a result, the shooter has a visible trace as the round leaves the barrel of the gun, but is completely undetectable from the target’s viewpoint, masking the location of the firing position.

Rep Jamie Raskin, D-MD, went off on Republicans for their "insurrectionist view" of the Second Amendment during Wednesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing on a bill that would ban assault weapons.

The proposed legislation, introduced in March 2021, would ban the sale, manufacturing, and importation of certain automatic weapons, in addition to high-capacity ammunition magazines, which allow guns to send quickly off 10 rounds of ammunition.
 

Democrats push for 1st semi-automatic gun ban in 20 years

House Democrats began pushing ahead Wednesday with legislation that would ban certain semi-automatic weapons as they considered their most far-reaching response yet to this summer’s spate of mass shootings.

Democrats hope that the 100-page bill moving through the Judiciary Committee will pass the House before the August break. But that is far from assured, with moderates in the party, especially those hailing from politically divided swing districts, wary of a vote on sweeping gun controls ahead of the November midterm elections — especially when the bill has little chance of becoming law due to opposition in the Senate.

People who stand up to violent criminals resonate with Americans of all walks of life. The courage to fight back against crime is heroic. Everybody believes this today except the woke prosecutors in our midst.

One of the most notorious woke prosecutors is New York City District Attorney Alvin Bragg. He brought charges against Jose Alba, 61, who stabbed an ex-con and assailant to death at a bodega shop he owned. After an earlier argument with the attacker’s girlfriend about not paying for an item, Alba defended himself when the perpetrator went behind the counter to assault him.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
