MD: Judge Refuses to Toss Coast Guard Officer's Gun Charges
Submitted by: Corey Salo

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
A federal judge on Friday refused to dismiss gun charges against a Coast Guard lieutenant accused of being a domestic terrorist who stockpiled weapons and drafted a hit list of prominent Democrats and TV journalists.

U.S. District Judge George Hazel rejected defense attorneys' argument that charging Christopher Hasson with unlawful possession of firearm silencers violates his Second Amendment right to bear arms. Hazel said a silencer is a firearm accessory, not a weapon in and of itself, and therefore isn't a "bearable arm" protected by the Second Amendment.

So declared Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms as he opened the 34th annual Gun Rights Policy Conference in Phoenix over the weekend.

It was, according to a report in the Arizona Republic, the largest GRPC in the event’s history. It is no mystery why attendance was almost standing-room-only as the two-day session opened.

In January, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a Second Amendment challenge to a gun control law for the first time in nearly 10 years. The case arose from a New York City regulation that banned city residents with “premises” handgun licenses from taking their own legally-owned firearms outside Gotham for lawful purposes. The city defended the law all the way to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, insisting it was essential to public safety.

In 2010, Advanced Armament Corporation developed the .300 AAC Blackout in conjunction with Remington Defense, with the intention of offering a .30 caliber cartridge with better performance than the 5.56mm ammunition currently in use. Replacing the 5.56 NATO cartridge is an idea that has been around since its introduction, but the urgency rose with the global War on Terror, which rapidly placed many of our troops in harm's way across many different situations and unfamiliar geography.

You know what gives Congress its confidence ratings from American voters? The expertise among legislators on subjects for which they intend to dictate choices to the electorate. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee offered her expert review of the AR-15, which apparently takes five men to lift and shoots cannonballs from its muzzle.

The leftist Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) has raised an incredible possibility, apparently something they just noticed: Self defense might be legal! This is not a parody. This is not in the opinion section. This was written as a straight news article. As a common practice, writers search for sources they can quote, which will give the spin their outlet desires.

AK: Letter: Sensible gun laws

There is a lot of talk about guns all across the country — a lot of “talk,” but not a lot of discussion. We are so entrenched in our opinions that we never discuss, we just talk and raise voices.

Discussions about gun safety do not threaten the Second Amendment. I believe that the National Rifle Association and all gun enthusiasts agree that there needs to be something done.

There are laws about about safety. For example, there were many people against wearing seat belts. There are laws about how fast you can go and laws that govern the right of way.

My point is that whenever safety is an issue, there need to be laws for protection. Guns are not the problem. People are.

The possession, manufacture and sale of assault weapons is illegal in New York, but these companies have been providing the means to violate the state’s assault weapons ban, James said in an news release.

Beto O’Rourke and the Democrat Presidential candidates talk about big splashy plans to confiscate or license guns and deny services to gun and ammunition manufacturers. That is unlikely to happen. What is more likely is a subtle, step by step non-legislative action that will ultimately lead to the nullification of the Second Amendment.

The AR-15 is among guns that Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke has pledged to confiscate via mandatory “buybacks” if he’s elected president (pause for laughter). It sounds as if Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee also thinks they’re too dangerous to be in private hands. How does Jackson Lee know that? Because she claims to have held one and is lucky to not have pulled a muscle or gotten a hernia, judging from her description:

Last week, Beto O’Rourke bragged that Texans would happily give their AR-15s to the government.

Not just give them up but they’d ‘happily’ do so.

K.

It’s like Robert Francis O’Rourke has no idea who Texans really are …

The Blaze’s Sara Gonzales just decimated Beto and his claim in a kicka*s video that will make you fist-pump.
