Voting With Their Guns

There’s nothing like nationwide protests and a murder surge in major cities to cause a spurt of new gun sales. Gun controllers may want to rethink their 2020 strategy.

The FBI’s most recent gun-sale figures are stunning. They show that in July the bureau carried out 3.6 million background checks, the third highest month on record. Adjusting to reflect checks only for gun purchases, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) says this translates to 1.8 million gun sales for July 2020—a 122% increase over July 2019.

As has been widely reported, St. Louis prosecuting attorney Kim Gardner filed felony charges against a St. Louis couple for exercising their fundamental right to self-defense. This prosecution has even broader implications than those just pertaining to the defendants: It sends a chilling message to all Missourians that they exercise their fundamental right to self-defense at their peril. Missourians should not fear exposure to criminal prosecution when they use firearms to defend their homes from threatening intruders. Simply put, this case is nothing more than a political prosecution.

"This is so sad and so shocking," Jowan Zuber told host Tucker Carlson. "The justice system is not working in Arlington, Virginia."

The tragic death of Breonna Taylor is a result of the faulty assertion by gun advocates that having a firearm in the house makes one safer.

We urge the public to allow the police to conduct a full investigation. We also need to correct statements that have been reported by the press. First, Sgt. Perry never left his vehicle preceding or immediately following the shooting. Second, Sgt. Perry did not “flee” but immediately called police upon getting to safety. Finally and most importantly, police have interviewed witnesses who were demonstrating with Mr. Foster and these witnesses have confirmed that Mr. Foster raised his assault rifle in a direct threat to Sgt. Perry’s life.

Once you understand this, you can use the knowledge to sharpen your shooting skills and increase the performance of your firearm.

President Trump highlighted his support for Second Amendment protections on Tuesday in a pitch to Catholic voters.

"These people are going to take all of your rights away, including Second Amendment, because, you know, Catholics like their Second Amendment," Trump told the Eternal Word Television Network, a Catholic news network. "So I saved the Second Amendment. If I wasn't here, you wouldn't have a Second Amendment."

Speed has rarely picked up a gun before, but contacted Timberline Firearms and Training, enrolled in classes, bought her first gun, a 9mm, then a second one, a shotgun, all in the last six months. Her purchases are among more than three million firearms sales across the country since March, three million more than what normally would have been sold during these months, as estimated by Wellesley College Economics Professors Phillip Levine and Robin McKnight.

Presumptive Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday made clear his intentions to reboot an expired ban on popular semi-auto firearms if he moves into the White House.

Biden, a career politician who served two terms as the country's Vice President and 35 years as a U.S. Senator from Delaware, called back to the days of his key support in Congress of the controversial Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994.

"Weapons of war have no place in our communities," Biden said on his campaign's social media accounts. "When I was a senator, I took on the NRA and secured a 10-year ban on assault weapons — and as president, I’ll ban these weapons again."

Fast forward a mere three plus years, and now the left sees big trucks as “basically . . . deliberately designed to intimidate and kill pedestrians.”

They look at a truck, and they literally see a potential problem for their ongoing rioting, looting, arson, murder, and mayhem.

We look at a truck and think, nice! Maybe it could be a bit bigger, but real nice.

A three judge panel for the US Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has revived a 2016 lawsuit against the state of Maryland on Monday for strict gun control laws enacted in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

The suit was originally filed by a gun owners advocacy group, Maryland Shall Issue, two private citizens, and a local gun store, Atlantic Guns, in 2016. The suit claimed that Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act of 2013 (FSA) violated the Second and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution and imposed an unconstitutional burden on gun owners in the state.

As an avid shooter and Second Amendment advocate, I would love to have a gun range in Greene County. But like most people, I would not want it near my property. The problem, of course, is the noise. Hearing my neighbors shoot occasionally is very different from the constant noise to be expected from a gun range.
 

Below the Radar: Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act

Perhaps the most dangerous legislation when it comes to our Second Amendment rights isn’t the outright ban – it’s the laws that grant a lot of leeway to bureaucrats and appointed officials. There is a very simple reason for this: Legislators at the local, state, and federal levels can be voted out. The same goes for mayors, governors, and presidents.

On the other hand, bureaucrats are the closest thing to forever you can find in politics. Their actions are hard to stop, just as hard to reverse, they can outlast politicians thanks to civil service protections, and in addition, they have access to friendly media. In short, a bureaucracy empowered to inflict restrictions is a massive threat to our rights.

The Wyoming Supreme Court will not hear a challenge to the University of Wyoming’s ability to regulate firearms on its property, a divided court has decided.

Justices, in a 3-2 decision, declined to review the case of Lyle Williams, who was charged in 2018 with trespass for carrying a firearm into the university’s conference center in violation of UW rules.

As is traditional, the order issued by the Supreme Court on Tuesday did not disclose the reasons why the justices chose not to review the case. However, it did note that Chief Justice Michael Davis and Justice Keith Kautz believed Williams’ petition for a review of a district court judge’s previous ruling met the standards for Supreme Court action.
