Title: Gun Issues
Post by: DunkingDan on September 29, 2020, 12:36:53 PM
There was a thread that covered many of the issues involving guns and states denying rights that can be found here.  https://www.cfb51.com/area-51/va-pa-ky-and-other-states-anti-2nd-amendment-actions-and-reactions-13425/ (https://www.cfb51.com/area-51/va-pa-ky-and-other-states-anti-2nd-amendment-actions-and-reactions-13425/)  . It actually contained other info. With that being said and linked to, I am starting this one so many issues can be found in one place.
Title: Remington Tells Employees – “Do Not Come Back to Work”
Post by: DunkingDan on September 29, 2020, 12:38:33 PM
America’s oldest gun maker has reportedly furloughed More than 600 employees at their Ilion, New York plant. The move comes in anticipation of next week’s bankruptcy (https://www.thehuntingnews.com/us-gun-maker-takes-steps-toward-bankruptcy/) hearing and a lot of uncertainly about the companies future.
According to WKTV (https://www.wktv.com/content/news/Plant-wide-furlough-at-Remington-Arms-more-than-600-affected-572525941.html), on Thursday employees received an email from Remington Outdoor Company CEO, Ken D’Arcy, telling them to not come back to work until further notice. The reasons given in the email were that the company had to curtail operations due to liquidity issues, resulting in material shortages. 
“Hard to believe. Hard to believe,” said 21-year employee, Randy Williams, sitting on a stone wall outside the plant, Thursday afternoon. Williams is well acquainted with the rollercoaster of furloughs, shutdowns, and uncertainty that has become Remington over the past several years. But he says this time, it feels different, “It’s never been like this. Never.”
Remington is currently going through bankruptcy (https://961theeagle.com/remington-workers-told-do-not-report-back-to-work/?trackback=fbshare_mobile&fbclid=IwAR3mTxu3eeLsUjzuHHyQDS_r3APZjWRYYi1kx3AIHTvrm8f6eS-6clNjK4E) and is currently receiving bids from other companies looking to acquire them. The president of UMWA Local 717 union is optimistic the process will end with the purchase of the entire company, and the Ilion plant will emerge, still making guns.

Right now the top bidders (https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Remington-bankruptcy-sale-deadline-is-pushed-back-15593997.php) include “U.S.-based Sturm Ruger and Thailand-based Royal Defence, which makes armaments for the Thai and other governments.”
Hopefully, things will work out in court and a sale can be finalized so these people can get back to work.

Remington Outdoor, bankrupt gunmaker, to be sold in pieces to seven buyers

SNIP:
Bankrupt gunmaker Remington Outdoor will split up its business and sell the pieces to seven different buyers following a bankruptcy auction, court records show.

The biggest sale will go to Minnesota-based Vista Outdoor, which said it will pay $81.4 million for Remington’s brand and trademarks along with parts of its ammo and accessories business including an Arkansas ammunition factory.

Other buyers include outdoor-gear retailer Sportsman’s Warehouse, which will acquire the Tapco brand of gun parts and accessories, and Nevada-based gunmaker Franklin Armory, which is snapping up Remington’s Bushmaster rifle brand, records show.

The sales are expected to bring in at least $155 million that will be applied to Remington’s debts, The Wall Street Journal reported. The company filed for bankruptcy in July as it struggled with weak sales after a 2018 restructuring that slimmed down its hefty debt load.

It did not help them that Cuomo shut them down and ignored their offer to make needed supplies.
Title: Mike Bloomberg’s gun-control group will spend $1 million to help

 Democrats try to flip Pa. legislature

The political arm of an anti-gun-violence group cofounded by the billionaire former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg says it will spend at least $1 million to help Democrats try to gain control of the Pennsylvania legislature in the November elections.

Everytown for Gun Safety Victory Fund said Wednesday it would aim to oust Republican lawmakers in Harrisburg who “have refused to take action on common-sense gun safety legislation” like strengthening background checks.

Title: LONG LIVE THE LEVER GUN: RUGER MARLIN DEAL CLEARED
Post by: DunkingDan on October 03, 2020, 06:04:08 PM
Sturm, Ruger confirmed Wednesday afternoon that they will acquire the historic Marlin Firearms brand from Remington and add it to their line up.

Ruger was the successful bidder for the Marlin assets in Remington's Chapter 11 sale last week for $30 million. The agreement was accepted by Remington and has been approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama.

"The value of Marlin and its 150-year legacy was too great of an opportunity for us to pass up," said Ruger President and CEO Chris Killoy in a statement. "The brand aligns perfectly with ours and the Marlin product portfolio will help us widen our already diverse product offerings."

Marlin was formed in 1870 in Connecticut by firearms designer John Mahlon Marlin. While the company produced handguns, shotguns, and machine guns over its existence, as well as bolt- and pump-action rifles, it is in the field of lever-action "cowboy" guns that it made its reputation, cranking out more than 30 million such rifles by 2008.

Acquired by Remington over a decade ago and moved from its long-time New England home, the company's current catalog includes the Model 1895, Model 1894, and Model 336 lever-action rifles as well as the Model 60, Model 795, and XT-series rimfire rifles. It is unclear if Ruger, who has seen wild success with their own rimfire line built around the Ruger 10/22 series, will continue production of Marlin's legacy .22s.

Court filings detail that Ruger stands to acquire more than 80 pages of tooling, machines, components, and spare parts needed to produce Marlin firearms as well as related intellectual property, patents, FFLs, domain names, social media pages, and trademarks. Ruger made clear this week that the deal will not include "Remington firearms, ammunition, other Remington Outdoor brands" or facilities, and real estate. Once the sale is completed in October, Ruger will start moving the Marlin-centric assets from Remington's current facilities.

"The important thing for consumers, retailers, and distributors to know at this point in time," continued Killoy, "is that the Marlin brand and its great products will live on. Long Live the Lever Gun."

Title: Applications for Pistol Permits Are Up 500% Outside Chicago!
Post by: DunkingDan on October 05, 2020, 03:00:37 PM
In difficult times, we fall back on basic principles. The basics begin with safety for ourselves and our loved ones. This is why gun sales are surging. Gun dealers, in fact, are seeing particularly high demand near the very major American cities that push the harshest gun-control policies on their residents.

To point out a cogent example, the Chicago Tribune ran an article on June 25 titled “‘Guns are flying off the shelf.’ Permit applications up more than 500%....”

Like New York City, officials in Chicago have long done all they can to outlaw the Second Amendment rights of their citizens. This legislative attack on the normal (legal) gun culture has created a disarmed class of people (average, law-abiding residents) and a lawless class (criminals, many in gangs). The result of this social experiment is tabulated with body counts.

As city officials in places like Chicago and New York City continue to blame freedom for the acts of criminals, people outside their reach are embracing their freedom in record numbers.

“[M]ore than 40,000 Illinoisans applied for a gun permit in a little more than two weeks this month, more than 500% over this time last year, according to Illinois State Police,” reported the Chicago Tribune.

The Tribune found that gun sales are surging, for example, at Mark Glavin’s gun shop in Elgin, which is located about 35 miles northwest of Chicago, “from an average of 10 [guns sold] a day last year to as many as 200 a day this year.”

From June 1 to June 17, the Illinois State Police received more than 42,000 applications for “Firearms Owner Identification” (FOID) cards. This is just over a 500% increase from the same time last year.

Even the Tribune noted that many of these new gun owners are not who the mainstream media thinks typically buys guns. Alexandra Filindra, an associate professor of political science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, told the Tribune that “there’s plenty of research and anecdotal evidence to suggest many of those white, first-time gun buyers may consider themselves politically progressive.”

One new gun owner interviewed by the Tribune, who didn’t want his name in print, categorized himself as “a very liberal Democrat” who for decades has been “for most forms of gun control politically.” However, like many, this person is now waiting for the state to approve his first gun permit.

“My views have recently changed, and I have accepted that the Second Amendment provides for the personal ownership and use of a firearm,” this person told the Tribune.

This article, which is worth quoting at length because it is not the kind of thing most big, urban newspapers would have published just a few months ago, even quoted David Lombardo, owner of Safer USA and a concealed-carry instructor, as saying, “I have seen the emergence of a new class of students seeking training: anti-Second Amendment liberals.”

Clearly, threats to their lives are teaching people of all political persuasions that trusting the state to be on the scene to stop a rapist, robber and/or murderer—however diligent and brave the police might be—is only a workable view for those who get police escorts.

Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, has clearly positioned himself against this fundamental American freedom, and has therefore placed himself in opposition to the peoples’ personal right to safety. As we get closer to the election on November 3, this needs to be made so starkly clear that when these new gun owners go into the privacy of a voting booth, they’ll know, in fact, they’ll feel as they would on a dark night when they are awoken by glass breaking, that Joe Biden doesn’t think they should be trusted with the freedom to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Title: GOA FILES FEC COMPLAINT AGAINST FACEBOOK, AFP FACT CHECK, & KAMALA
Post by: DunkingDan on October 06, 2020, 02:42:37 PM
 HARRIS FOR VIOLATIONS OF CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS

Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America (GOA) has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Facebook, AFP Fact Check and Vice Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris for violating provisions of the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) by engaging in so-called “fact checking” of articles critical of Kamala Harris’s record on the Second Amendment.


To combat alleged “false news” shared on its platform, Facebook utilizes so-called “fact checkers” to discredit and diminish the reach of information shared on its platform. One of these “fact checkers” is AFP Fact Check, which is a foreign media entity which receives subsidies from the French government.



Examples of erroneous “fact checks” are two articles concerning VP candidate Kamala Harris’ record on the Second Amendment. Both articles – written by Cam Edwards and GOA’s own Rachel Malone – correctly demonstrated Harris’ anti-gun record, but were rated “false” by Facebook, which used the foreign AFP as its source.



AFP maintained that Harris supports gun ownership, while the flagged articles pointed out that she authored an amicus brief that opposed an individual’s right to keep and bear arms. When these articles were shared on Facebook, their reach was diminished, and an overlay labeled the articles as “false news,” and replaced them with AFP’s version of the “truth.”



GOA’s complaint states:



Facebook has recruited an agent of a European government to control which messages about U.S. elections may be heard, and which should be suppressed. Based on its favored status within Facebook, AFP Fact Check has been given access to the Facebook site, along with the unilateral powers to declare information it opposes to be “False News,” to censor, diminish, or even remove opposing views that are posted on Facebook, and to superimpose AFP’s own version of the alleged “truth” in its place.



Furthermore, because Facebook is allowing a foreign entity to provide assistance in an election, GOA is urging the FEC to investigate for FECA violations. The complaint states:



Facebook and AFP Fact Check have provided valuable services to the political campaign of Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris. [Facebook’s] employees have used corporate time and resources to target and remove political speech critical of their favored candidate, because such speech has been deemed harmful to that candidate, all for the purpose of influencing the 2020 Presidential Election. Because [Facebook and AFP Fact Check] are corporations, they are prohibited from providing this service to the campaign free of charge, or for less than they should normally charge. Therefore, these services constitute a prohibited corporate in-kind contribution to the Harris campaign.


John Crump, a journalist and Virginia Director for Gun Owners of America, received a lifetime ban for the sharing of Malone’s article on his personal Facebook page. He recently wrote, “The social media platforms try to play both sides of the fence. When someone posts something illegal, the company claims that they are just a ‘platform,’ so they are protected from civil and criminal penalties. When they want to remove opinions they don’t like, Facebook claims that they moderate content like a publisher. It is time they either allow free speech or the government should strip Facebook of their Digital Millennium Copyright Act protections.”

Title: Two Time Cop Killer – Paroled In Andrew Cuomo’s New York
Post by: DunkingDan on October 06, 2020, 03:24:41 PM
On an August 1971 evening in Harlelm, New York, Anthony Bottom, along with with two radical accomplices, made a phony 911 call with the intention of ambushing whoever responded to their cry for help.

That’s exactly what they did, shooting black NYPD officer Waverly Jones one time in the back of the head.  Waverly died instantly.  But to white NYPD officer Joseph Joe Piagentini they were not so kind.  They shot Piagentini 22 times, all while he begged for mercy and told them that he had a family who needed him.


Bottom and his friends were members of the violent, racist group called the Black Panthers, as well as the Black Liberation Army and this was their ‘protest’ against injustice in policing.

Now, thanks to Governor Andrew Cuomo, the parole guidelines in New York have changed to place greater emphasis on an offender’s current risk to the community.  Since Bottom is now a 68-year-old man, Cuomo and crew have decided that it’s fine if he walks the streets of New York as a free man.

Joe Piagentini’s wife commented on the news that her husband’s killer would be released, saying,

“Gov. Cuomo has now seen fit to release a cop killer into New York State society.  This is what Gov. Cuomo releases into society and thinks that he is rehabilitated? At his trial, he said, there is no rehabilitation for me.”

Neither Anthony Bottom nor the two other men convicted for the murders have ever expressed remorse for their actions.  One of the three men died in prison in 2008.  The other man, Herman Bell, was released in March due to the Corona Scare.

A Slap In The Face
Diana Piagentini pointed out the behavior that Cuomo is rewarding, saying of her husband, “He pleaded for his life to come back to his family and his children. Anthony Bottom took his revolver and emptied it into his body. The Black Liberation Army was dedicated to killing police officers, it didn’t matter about whether they were White or whether they were Black. They walked up behind Waverly and my husband, shot them in the back.”

Meanwhile, Patrick Lynch, the head of the Patrolman’s Benevolent Association blamed Gov. Cuomo and the state Legislature for changing parole guidelines to make it easier for people to be freed.

Title: LAWMAKERS: DEFUND POLICE? THEN UNCHAIN THE SECOND AMENDMENT
Post by: DunkingDan on October 07, 2020, 03:30:01 PM
Republicans on Capitol Hill have introduced a resolution stressing the importance of preserving the right to keep and bear arms after calls to defund police.
The Second Amendment for Everyone (SAFE) Resolution of 2020 (https://fulcher.house.gov/_cache/files/f/4/f47bb298-0e1e-4e71-8a15-918fc4f39893/669870F307169294459C3D83C24F8D54.fulcher-018.pdf) was introduced to the U.S. House this week by Idaho Republican Russ Fulcher, backed by 15 co-sponsors drawn from nine states. The move asks local governments who seek to reduce their local law enforcement agencies to do so while ensuring their local gun regulations do not burden their residents.
“I support the right of Americans to own and responsibly use firearms—particularly during a time when the police’s ability to protect our citizens may be lessened, or even removed in some areas,” said Fulcher in a statement. “People have a right to protect themselves, and this should not be impeded by local, state, or county regulations that have enacted costly, lengthy, and burdensome procedures for obtaining legal, constitutionally-granted gun ownership.”
The measure, introduced as H.Res.1013 (https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-resolution/1013/cosponsors?searchResultViewType=expanded), would resolve that any jurisdiction that moves to dismantle or reduce funding for law enforcement should check their own local regs and cut away rules that put a crimp on individual gun ownership or access to firearms. The goalposts for identifying such restrictions should be the landmark pro-gun Heller and McDonald cases decided by the Supreme Court.
Fulcher’s office points out that many jurisdictions have mandatory training requirements for prospective gun owners that are so expensive as to tread on Second Amendment rights. Further, reducing police presence in some regions, especially for sparsely-patroled rural areas, could put residents at risk while at the same time placing barriers to legal gun ownership.
The SAFE Resolution has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

From a year ago, said essentially the same in the debates...

 Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris re-iterated her support for a mandatory gun buyback program Wednesday, saying a government under her leadership may confiscate “as many as 10 million” guns.
The 2020 presidential candidate was asked by MSNBC host Craig Melvin how she would get existing “assault weapons” off the streets, noting that the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban did not include a confiscation program.
“We have to have a buyback program,” Harris said. “I support a mandatory buyback program. It’s gotta be smart. We gotta do it the right way.”

Harris estimated that there are currently 5-10 million “assault weapons” in the U.S., but did not mention any specific type of firearm her administration would target.

Title: Gun-Rights Group Sues Philly Over Massive Permit Backlog
Post by: DunkingDan on October 07, 2020, 04:42:19 PM
Suit: City tells some to wait until 2022 for appointment

A gun-rights group accused the Philadelphia Police Department of illegally forcing residents to wait up to 18 months to apply for a gun-carry permit in a lawsuit.

Gun Owners of America (GOA) said the city has infringed on the rights of local residents by ignoring a Pennsylvania law that requires localities to process applications within 45 days. Val Finnell, the group's Pennsylvania director, said the lengthy wait times actively harm locals who are seeking to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

"They're essentially denying the right to defend yourself," Finnell told the Washington Free Beacon.

The GOA acknowledged the strain that Covid-19 had placed on government agencies, but said the delays—some stretching into 2022—were unprecedented in the region. While some Pennsylvania cities and counties moved the permitting process online or through the mail to accommodate a surge in gun sales, Philadelphia authorities have made no attempt to abide by state law. Finnell pointed to neighboring Bucks County, which has managed to process applications on a walk-in basis without any of the delays Philadelphia residents face.

"If they say they can delay receiving the application, then they can delay it indefinitely," Finnell said. "Our argument is a right delayed is a right denied."

A spokesman for the Philadelphia Police Department declined comment on the pending litigation.

America’s oldest gun maker has reportedly furloughed More than 600 employees at their Ilion, New York plant. The move comes in anticipation of next week’s bankruptcy (https://www.thehuntingnews.com/us-gun-maker-takes-steps-toward-bankruptcy/) hearing and a lot of uncertainly about the companies future.
According to WKTV (https://www.wktv.com/content/news/Plant-wide-furlough-at-Remington-Arms-more-than-600-affected-572525941.html), on Thursday employees received an email from Remington Outdoor Company CEO, Ken D’Arcy, telling them to not come back to work until further notice.

Williams is well acquainted with the rollercoaster of furloughs, shutdowns, and uncertainty that has become Remington over the past several years. But he says this time, it feels different, “It’s never been like this. Never.”
Remington is currently going through bankruptcy (https://961theeagle.com/remington-workers-told-do-not-report-back-to-work/?trackback=fbshare_mobile&fbclid=IwAR3mTxu3eeLsUjzuHHyQDS_r3APZjWRYYi1kx3AIHTvrm8f6eS-6clNjK4E) and is currently receiving bids from other companies looking to acquire them. The president of UMWA Local 717 union is optimistic the process will end with the purchase of the entire company, and the Ilion plant will emerge, still making guns.

Right now the top bidders (https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Remington-bankruptcy-sale-deadline-is-pushed-back-15593997.php) include “U.S.-based Sturm Ruger and Thailand-based Royal Defence, which makes armaments for the Thai and other governments.”
Hopefully, things will work out in court and a sale can be finalized so these people can get back to work.

This isn't shocking but is still horrible news. I think Remington got too far into the weeds with cheap and poorly crafted rifles and to top it all off they haven't kept up with Hornady and Winchester ammo. Remington doesn't offer any ammo that makes me want to buy it unless I'm just wanting the cheapest and most worthless junk just to get trigger time. As far as their rifles, I wouldn't consider one of their rifles unless it's a 700 BDL or CDL that was manufactured prior to 1990. I just don't trust their most recent manufacturing. The quality isn't there anymore.

I'm glad that Ruger got the Marlin brand though. But until Ruger starts manufacturing them I wouldn't consider buying one at the moment. It will be interesting to find out if Ruger increases the Marlin quality but for me at the moment, it's only Marlins made mid 80's and older.

I have a couple old Marlins one in a 35 Rem I really like as well as a 45-70 for hunting in heavy brush.

Did not know about their ammo. I know I gave up on CCI for 22 plinking decades ago.

I have a couple old Marlins one in a 35 Rem I really like as well as a 45-70 for hunting in heavy brush.

Did not know about their ammo. I know I gave up on CCI for 22 plinking decades ago.
Those older Marlin 35’s are an absolute treasure but the ammo isn’t readily available everywhere. It’s not hard to find its just there aren’t that many manufacturer selections anymore. My dad has one with a swirled wood stock. It’s beautiful and I love to shoot it.
You know, as much as I love to shoot I’ve never squeezed the tigger on a 45-70.

When we helped my MIL with her nephews estate we found a Remington 35, which was a pump. I have not shot it yet. 

I use to find 35 Rem at Walmart and most sporting goods stores in East Tn. not tried to get any yet here in NEPA.

I use to crawl around in the brush in the Big South Fork with my 45-70. Never worried about a Bore, as it is one of the few rounds that will bust their skull open. 
Title: Women, minorities rush to get concealed carry permits, up 34%
Post by: DunkingDan on October 08, 2020, 02:39:40 PM
The growth of adults holding permits to carry concealed guns has surged 34% in the past four years, and the rush to get one has resulted in long lines as some counties have faced cutbacks due to the coronavirus crisis, according to a new report (https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3703977).
John Lott’s Crime Prevention Research Center (https://crimeresearch.org/) revealed that there are 19.48 million permit holders, 820,000 more than in 2019.
He found that women and minorities are leading in the new applications. “Permits for women and minorities continue to increase at a much faster rate than for either men or whites,” he said. That finding parallels reports from gun stores that women and minorities are buying weapons and signing up for concealed carry classes at a brisk pace.
The authority on the issue, Lott said that the growth has slowed recently as states have curbed issuing permits due to cutbacks from the coronavirus crisis.

banning online sales of guns, ammo and parts


Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed on his campaign website (https://joebiden.com/gunsafety/) to ban online gun and ammo sales, limit gun sales, ban “assault weapons,” force gun owners into buybacks or registration, and various other restrictions.

Biden has expressed his anti-gun ideas, but his website spells out the specific measures he intends to take if he wins the election and assumes the presidency, which he describes as “constitutional, common-sense gun safety policies.”

I was in a gun store this morning looking for more 5.56 ammo and struck up a conversation about gun sale backgrounds. He said a few weeks back TN crossed the barrier of 500,000 background checks for the first time in history and we still have 3 months to complete the year. He said within a period of 3 hours that morning that 1,400 background checks were submitted. That's on TN and in a 3 hour span of time.

He also spoke about the clientele there. They cater to the upper social scale and that he's spoken to police chiefs, police captains, police LT's, police sergeants, fire chiefs, politicians, doctors, attorney's, etc......that are 2nd Amendment supporters and they aren't playing around. They are arming themselves well and are stocked with ammo. Many of them think there is going to be trouble after the election so they're preparing for the worst. As far as the police he's spoken to, they aren't entertaining the Democrat plan to disarm citizens. They're ready to fight with us if it comes down to that.

As for me, I hope Americans never have to fight each other again but I'm not naïve. It appears the Left is not going to stop until they've started another civil war. They want one in a bad way but are too ignorant to realize what they're wanting will end in their demise.

That's not a bad price. Its very similar to most stores around here. We were tickled the other day to get 600 rds for $250. 

Sad a few short months ago you could get it for a lot less.

As my 7.62 x39 is still in storage in Tn. I had to pay around 8.39 for boxes of 2o. That is a far cry from what I pd for cases of 1200 a few years back for $90. Don;t ask how many cases are in storage along with 300 win mag, 45-70, 35 rem., 270, 357, 45, 22, 12 ga, 16 ga. , etc. If it was not for this damned virus it and all my reloading stuff, lead, molds, etc. would be here now.

This isn't shocking but is still horrible news. I think Remington got too far into the weeds with cheap and poorly crafted rifles and to top it all off they haven't kept up with Hornady and Winchester ammo. Remington doesn't offer any ammo that makes me want to buy it unless I'm just wanting the cheapest and most worthless junk just to get trigger time. As far as their rifles, I wouldn't consider one of their rifles unless it's a 700 BDL or CDL that was manufactured prior to 1990. I just don't trust their most recent manufacturing. The quality isn't there anymore.

I'm glad that Ruger got the Marlin brand though. But until Ruger starts manufacturing them I wouldn't consider buying one at the moment. It will be interesting to find out if Ruger increases the Marlin quality but for me at the moment, it's only Marlins made mid 80's and older.

I have a lot of affection for the Marlin brand.   I still have the .22 semi-auto tube-feed that my dad bought me for Christmas when I was 13.  He and I had a blast with that rifle, and I bet we put over 20,000 rounds through it.  We used to go out to a vacant piece of land on the banks of the Loosahatchie River, just outside of Memphis.   We'd chunk soda cans and old light bulbs upstream, and blast the holy shit out of them as they drifted downstream.   

That's not actually the rifle I learned to shoot with though.  Before dad bought me the Marlin, he and I would go shoot my older brother's .22 single shot. It is a JC Higgins model 103.18, which is a Marlin-made rifle that was sold through Sears.  It has an 18" barrel, with a bolt-action and a hammer.   I love that rifle, and even at 12 I was a good shot with it.  I kept the rifle for years, but my conscience eventually got the best of me.   A few years ago I stripped the rifle, sanded and refinished the stock with boiled linseed oil, and presented it back to my brother.  

I'll get that rifle back some sad day, and it will become my most prized possession: a Sears & Roebuck rifle that sold originally for $12.   
Title: 22% of Gun-Owners Just Bought a New Gun
Post by: DunkingDan on October 13, 2020, 04:14:16 PM
A new survey from Rasmussen says, “Over one-fifth of Americans who have a gun in their household have added one since late May and feel safer [emphasis is ours] because they’ve done so.”

The report also found that 43% of “American adults say they or someone in their household owns a gun.”

Of these gun-owning Americans, 22% said they or someone in their home has bought a new gun this year.

The survey also shows that most people in households with guns disagree with the nonsensical gun-control talking point that guns in homes make people less safe. Rasmussen says that among those who’ve bought a gun in the last four months, “90% feel more safe.” Of those surveyed who live in a home with a firearm, but have not stated they purchased a new one in the last four months, 54% “feel more safe with a gun in the house,” while 38% feel “the presence of the gun has no impact on their personal safety.”

Surveys of gun owners, however, always come with a few caveats, as gun owners tend to favor their privacy when it comes to telling strangers about their personal firearms.

Still, numbers like these clearly show that more Americans are embracing their Second Amendment freedom in this uncertain time. As the estimated 5 million new gun owners the National Shooting Sports Foundation determined have bought their first gun this year find training and go to local ranges, they are sure to feel empowered and to view this constitutional right as the practical part of freedom it is.

This is a cultural shift toward freedom.

Title: Ammunition Manufacturers Looking At Back Orders Lasting Into 2021 —
Post by: DunkingDan on October 13, 2020, 04:16:40 PM
 Gun Owners Facing Massive Shortages Nationwide


Ammunition manufacturers across the country are facing record backlogs of orders, and from recent reports, there’s no end in sight.
According to Bearing Arms (https://bearingarms.com/cam-e/2020/09/30/ammunition-maker-80-million-back-orders/), one such company, Ammo Incorporated is looking at back orders in the amount of $80 MILLION dollars. The Scottsdale, Arizona company isn’t promising anything, and estimates that many of those orders won’t be filled until 2021.

And that’s not for lack of trying.  The company’s CEO, Fred Wagenhals, says they’re giving it all they’ve got in comments to the media. “We’re working right now seven days a week, 24 hours a day in all the manufacturing plants.”

They’ve also added millions of dollars in expensive manufacturing equipment in an attempt to keep up with demand.  Wagenhals reported, “We just bought 2.8 million dollars worth of machinery and equipment last week to increase our production and increase our volume.”
More Ammo Than Guns
As the year wore on, more and more Americans had already purchased themselves a gun and were now looking for some ammunition to ease their fears.  Ammo sales now outpace gun sales by a decent margin.
Bearing Arms commented:
Quote
“According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the year has already seen a boom in gun purchases, up 95% in the first half of 2020 compared to the same time period of 2019,” the outlet notes. “But ammo sales skyrocketed even higher, up 139% compared to 2019 during that same time period.”
According to Ammo Inc.’s CEO Wagenhals, 2020 has been a perfect storm for gun owners.
Quote
“The start was the pandemic that was going on. But there was always that fear of the election. Of who’s going to be elected of the next President of the United States,” Wagenhals said. “But thirdly, I think the unrest in this country right now. And as you’ve seen in a lot of cities, the looting and the burning, and I think people are just scared.”
And no matter which party wins in November — the election is just barely 24 days away — the demand isn’t likely to taper off any time soon.
It Won’t Get Better In November
If Biden and Harris win, gun owners are looking at one of the most anti-gun tickets in American history.  Both candidates have promised to ban the AR-15, pass Universal Background Checks (UBC’s), restrict sales of handguns, and end online sales of guns and ammunition.
Gun owners are right to be aware that they’re going to be in the fight of their lives if the Democrats take the White House.
On the other hand, if President Trump is reelected to a second term, there’s no doubt that the rioting and protesting in the streets by the left’s shock troops, Antifa, will get worse before it gets better.  And nobody sleeps well at night knowing that their neighborhood could be next.

Title: ‘Secret’ ATF move could turn 3M to 4M gun owners into felons
Post by: DunkingDan on October 15, 2020, 03:38:59 PM
President Trump’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, in a move his own son has warned could alienate hardcore supporters, has taken the first step to regulate and tax one of the nation’s most popular weapons for plinkers and hunters, the AR pistol.
Without notice and citing unexplained concerns about “public safety,” the Justice Department’s ATF has ordered the maker of several popular AR pistols to “cease and desist” in the production of the top seller “Honey Badger.”
The order, which maker Q LLC (https://www.liveqordie.com/) complied with to avoid criminal prosecution, has jarred the gun community.
(https://i.imgur.com/X7B3USU.png)



While only Q LLC has received a cease-and-desist letter, most AR makers also produce a version of the shorter-barreled Honey Badger pistol. And if all of those guns are reclassified to rifles by the ATF, 3 million to 4 million owners could become felons overnight, according to the industry group Gun Owners of America.

Title: September was 9th Consecutive Month of Record Firearm Background Check
Post by: DunkingDan on October 16, 2020, 04:00:41 PM
Figures released Saturday show September 2020 was the ninth consecutive month of record National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) background checks for gun sales.

The FBI revealed there were 2,892,115 NICS checks in September 2020, beating the previous September record of 2,207,312, set in 2019.


This means there were more background checks in September 2020 than in any September on record, just as there were more background checks in August 2020 than in any August in history, more in July 2020 than in any July, more in June 2020 than in any June, and so forth.

The surge in gun sales began early this year and continued amid the civil unrest and violence on display in Democrat-controlled cities.

The cause and effect of such an unprecedented rush to arms has been outlined before:

Title: Judge rules Los Angeles must pay $150K to the NRA after violating
Post by: DunkingDan on October 17, 2020, 05:33:26 PM
group's First Amendment rights


A federal judge ruled this week that city officials in Los Angeles must pay the National Rifle Association a six-figure settlement after violating the gun-rights group's First Amendment rights.

According to the Washington Free Beacon (https://freebeacon.com/latest-news/l-a-ordered-to-pay-nra-six-figures-after-losing-first-amendment-case/), Judge Stephen Wilson blocked an ordinance late last year that would have forced companies to disclose connections with the NRA in order to receive government contracts.
Now he has ordered city officials to pay for the Second Amendment group's attorney fees, reportedly totaling nearly $150,000.
In December 2019, Wilson ruled (https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.cacd.744044/gov.uscourts.cacd.744044.34.0.pdf) that "the text of the Ordinance, the Ordinance's legislative history, and the concurrent public statements made by the Ordinance's primary legislative sponsor evince a strong intent to suppress the speech of the NRA."
"Even though the Ordinance only forces disclosure of activity that may not be expressive, the clear purpose of the disclosure is to undermine the NRA's explicitly political speech," Wilson added.
"The City has no interest in the suppression of political advocacy — regardless of how distasteful it finds the content," he concluded. "The Ordinance is therefore incompatible with the Constitution, and Plaintiffs are likely to be successful on the merits of their First Amendment speech claims."

Title: Biden’s Gun Policy Could Tax Gun Owners $200 for Every ‘High-Capacity’
Post by: DunkingDan on October 23, 2020, 04:22:00 PM
Magazine They Own

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s proposed gun control policy includes a provision that could require Americans to sell back their so-called “high-capacity magazines” to the government or be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934 (NFA). The latter, unless there were some form of carve-out, could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax for every high-capacity magazine they currently own.

In addition to the $200 tax, owners of high-capacity magazines under Biden’s view of the NFA, could also be required to register them with federal authorities, submit their fingerprints and photograph, and potentially submit to an FBI background check.

ll of this is detailed on Biden’s campaign website, which states in bullet-point form (emphasis in original):

Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. Currently, the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Due to these requirements, such weapons are rarely used in crimes. As president, Biden will pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.

Buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities. Biden will also institute a program to buy back weapons of war currently on our streets. This will give individuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.

As Breitbart previously reported, it could also be mandated that so-called “assault weapons” such as the AR-15 be registered under the NFA if these policies were lawfully enacted.  Theoretically, this could mean that if a gun owner has already purchased one AR-15 and five high-capacity magazines, the owner could be required to pay $1200 in federal taxes, assuming he or she does not participate in any proposed buy back program.

The above paragraph on Biden’s website links to a memorandum from former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ Giffords Law Center that also calls for the regulation of “assault weapons” under the National Firearms Act.

The Giffords’ memorandum notes:

The NFA, enacted in 1934, was the first federal regulation of the manufacture and transfer of firearms. Machine guns, short-barreled rifles, and silencers are currently regulated under the NFA. In order to possess NFA firearms, individuals must undergo a background check process that includes the submission of photo identification and fingerprints and requires the registration of the firearm with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Individuals must also pay a $200 transfer tax, an amount that has not changed since the NFA was established in 1934.

The Giffords’ memorandum then calls for the policy that the Biden campaign website also endorses: “Giffords proposes that Congress require all existing assault weapons to be regulated under the National Firearms Act.”

The Giffords’ memorandum specifically defines “assault weapons” to include the AR-15. As noted, if lawfully enacted, this policy could encompass “existing assault weapons.” In practice, this could mean every American who owns a weapon like an AR-15 — or any other gun deemed by Democrats to be an “assault weapon” — could be required to submit their fingerprints and photograph, undergo an FBI background check, register these weapons with the ATF, and pay the federal government a $200 tax for each weapon. These requirements could also apply for all “high-capacity magazines” a gun owner possesses, assuming the gun owner chooses not to participate in any proposed buy back program.

The exact definition of a so-called “high-capacity magazine” is open to some interpretation. The now expired 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban defined a “large capacity ammunition feeding device” as a device providing more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The Giffords Law Center, which the Biden campaign linked to for its gun control policy, also defines “large capacity” as anything over 10 rounds. “Although the statutory definitions vary, magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds of ammunition are generally considered ‘large capacity’ magazines,” Giffords Law Center notes.

In 2018, the state of Vermont enacted gun control legislation limiting rifle-magazines to 10 rounds of ammunition and handgun magazines to 15 rounds of ammunition.

Joe Biden has been unspecific about his own definition of the exact number of rounds constituting a high-capacity magazine. Last year, for example, he decried the existence of “magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them.”

“The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them. It’s absolutely mindless. It is no violation of the Second Amendment. It is just a bow to special interests of the gun manufacturers and the NRA,” Biden said in September 2019.


The phrase “magazines that can hold multiple bullets” could imply anything over a single round.

“Allowing a Biden administration to redefine standard capacity magazines in such a way whereby they would legally fall within the National Firearms Act would be quite scary and shocking to gun owners and to all who value the Second Amendment’s individual right to keep and bear arms,” said attorney Mark W. Smith, a presidential scholar and senior fellow at the King’s College in New York City.

“It is unclear whether Biden would limit the types of magazines covered under a reimagined NFA to only those magazines that are attachable and detachable to long guns such as semi-automatic rifles,” Smith explained. “If a Biden administration went down the road of trying to rewrite the NFA through legislation or otherwise, then it would certainly be possible that they could argue that any and all magazines with a capacity to hold 10 or more rounds, or some other arbitrary number of rounds, must be registered under the terms of the NFA, and this would potentially include magazines that are attachable and detachable to ordinary semi-automatic handguns such as 9mm pistols and the like. In other words, why wouldn’t a Biden administration try to include handgun magazines in addition to rifle magazines under the NFA, if they could get away with it?”

Smith concluded, “When it comes to legal overreach, I am confident‎ that a Biden administration would go all in on their efforts to disarm Americans.”

In an interview last year with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Biden seemed to confirm his intention to disarm at least some Americans.

Cooper asked him, “So, to gun owners out there who say, well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for guns?”

Biden responded, “Bingo. You’re right, if you have an ‘assault weapon.’ The fact of the matter is they should be illegal, period.”

Title: Firearm Sales Heading Toward 20 Million Guns in 2020
Post by: DunkingDan on October 26, 2020, 02:43:14 PM
(https://i.imgur.com/hTvXWjA.png)

More guns have sold this year than ever before, and there are three months to go. The number of firearm purchases reflected by National Instant Criminal Background System (NICS) checks the FBI performed Jan. 1 through Sept. 30 reflects an all-time record, according to findings released by Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting (SAAF) last weekend.

“The 2020 year-to-date sales (January to September) now stand at 16.7 million and thereby exceed the previous annual high (January to December) set in 2016 with 16.6 million units sold,” SAAF Chief Economist Jurgen Brauer said in the news release. Volume for 2020 had already eclipsed 2019’s total (https://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/2020/9/8/2020-gun-sales-exceed-2019-numbers/) by August.

For the month of September the organization found the number of firearm sales that resulted in a background check came in at roughly 1.8 million, which represents a 66 percent increase over the same period in 2019. Handgun sales led the way at .98 million.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s findings were slightly more conservative. It estimated total sales in September were roughly 16.1 million. While NICS serves as a barometer for total sales, precise numbers are not possible due to its comingling with other administrative use of the system.

It also processes and checks the status of many with concealed carry permits as well as performing other routine administrative duties. In addition, some regions of the country do not require law-abiding citizens with a valid carry permit to undergo a redundant background check when purchasing a firearm.

With the traditionally heavy holiday sales months of November and December on the horizon—as well as the contentious Presidential election in November—speculation already widely circulates that a figure of 20 million will be reached by Dec. 31.
Whether the once-unimaginable mark is possible or not may, however, be determined by ability of manufacturers to keep supply lines filled. In addition, Brauer noted while monthly sales improvement remains significant the pace’s acceleration has slowed. “…[T]he August and September in 2020 increases are the lowest since March 2020,” he said.

Post by: DunkingDan on October 28, 2020, 04:07:11 PM
Michael Matthews, manager of the Virginia State Police’s Firearms Transaction Center, told The Free Lance–Star that 587,107 background checks were conducted in just the first nine months of 2020. “This is more than our previous highest year, which was 2016, with 505,722 transactions for the entire year,” he noted.

The General Assembly’s action would have been considered a rousing success if the goal was to increase, rather than decrease, the number of firearms in the commonwealth. But since there are now more than a half million more of these weapons in Virginia than there were before the Democrats’ highly-touted gun control bills passed, one can only conclude that the effort was a total flop.

Who would have guessed that Democrats in Richmond would be better at increasing gun sales in Virginia to record levels than the NRA?

Title: Trump Ad Reminds Viewers of Biden’s Anti-Gun History
Post by: DunkingDan on October 29, 2020, 04:18:21 PM
“Joe Biden openly admitted his plan to violate our Second Amendment rights,” points out a new video from President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, released on Oct 12. 
That reminder may be necessary. As the 2020 election draws ever closer, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have almost entirely stopped talking about their plans to strip away everyday citizens’ rights to protect themselves and their families. This sudden silence on the topic is no doubt, in part, thanks to the inescapable reality that there are 5-million-plus new gun owners (https://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2020/10/22/opening-salvo-america-has-five-million-new-gun-owners/) just this year, many of whom are women and minorities.
But they were not so quiet earlier in the campaign, as noted in the new ad, titled “If you're scared that a Biden administration will come for your guns: BINGO, you're right! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j90ifp4ClE0)” After pointing out the violent scenes that have taken place in 2020, the ad says, “Biden and Harris would enact unconstitutional gun-control measures, making it harder than ever to defend yourself. Your family—and rights—won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.” The ad then highlights Biden’s “Bingo” answer (https://www.nraila.org/articles/20200914/gun-controllers-try-to-hide-joe-biden-s-anti-gun-extremism) to an interview question of whether a Biden administration would mean “they are going to come for my guns.”
Of course, Biden hasn’t been totally silent on the topic of guns lately. He once again dangerously suggested in his Oct. 15 “town hall” (https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/joe-biden-abc-town-hall-transcript-october-15) appearance that “you have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances. De-escalate. So instead of anybody coming at you and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg.” America’s 1st Freedom pointed out how bad this advice was (https://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2020/6/5/biden-just-said-cops-should-do-what/) when Biden first said it last June as a way for police to deal with “an unarmed person coming at ‘em with a knife or something.” Biden’s latest remark has been roundly condemned in interviews with law-enforcement officers (https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/elections/its-myth-police-criticize-bidens-advice-cops-should-shoot-suspects-leg) and others who actually understand the dynamics of violent encounters.
Biden, of course, has a long history of giving bad firearms advice, like suggesting his wife should fire a shotgun twice in the air (https://youtu.be/D7icttUa9GU) on her porch if she were concerned for her safety.
Whether he’s trying to play up his anti-gun leanings or to keep them quiet, it’s obvious that Biden, who is part of the most anti-gun ticket in American history (https://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2020/10/1/the-most-anti-gun-ticket-in-american-history/), doesn’t understand or support the right to keep and bear arms. That is a major factor in why the NRA Political Victory Fund endorsed Donald Trump (https://www.americas1stfreedom.org/articles/2020/7/16/nra-endorses-president-donald-trump-for-reelection/). As this latest Trump ad reminds us, Biden fully intends to strip away Second Amendment rights he hasn’t even taken the time to understand, regardless of how much less safe that might make law-abiding citizens.

Title: Young gun owners file federal lawsuit challenging age requirement
Post by: DunkingDan on October 30, 2020, 12:44:53 PM
Three Pennsylvanians are suing the Pennsylvania State Police commissioner because they claim that state statutes prevent them from carrying and transporting firearms in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

The lawsuit requests that state statutes preventing anyone under the age of 21 from obtaining a license to carry a firearm be declared unconstitutional under the Second and Fourteenth amendments.

The lawsuit was filed Friday — with the support of two nonprofits — in federal court in Pittsburgh.

The plaintiffs in the case — Madison M. Lara of Verona, Logan Miller of Boyertown in Berks County and Sophia Knepley of Denver in Lancaster County — are all gun owners below the age of 21.

The two nonprofits involved in the case are the Second Amendment Foundation, based in Bellevue, Wash., and the Firearms Policy Coalition, based in Sacramento, Calif., of which the three plaintiffs are members.

“We’ve filed this action because the situation in Pennsylvania smacks of discrimination against young adults in the 18- to 20-year age group,” said SAF founder and executive vice president Alan M. Gottlieb.

“Young adults can join the military, where they might be assigned to carry firearms all over the world. They can get married, start businesses, enter into contracts and yet they are not considered mature enough to exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. That’s nonsense,” he said.

State police Commissioner Col. Robert Evanchick is the sole defendant in the case, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit argues that Pennsylvania state law — which prohibits the carrying of firearms on public streets or property during an emergency declared by a state or municipal executive — is in violation of the Second and Fourteenth amendments.

Pennsylvania has been under a state of emergency since January 2018, when Gov. Tom Wolf declared the heroin and opioid epidemic a statewide disaster emergency. The governor also declared a statewide emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March.

Title: ANTI-GUNNERS MAKE THE CASE WHY AMY CONEY BARRETT SHOULD BE CONFIRMED
Post by: DunkingDan on October 30, 2020, 02:22:30 PM
TO SCOTUS

The Michael Bloomberg-funded anti-gun groups Moms Demand Action and Everytown unwittingly made the argument why Amy Coney Barrett should be the next Supreme Court Justice.

An Everytown report on Barrett’s dissent in Kanter v Barr states:

Among the first issues that could come before the Supreme Court in upcoming terms are laws regulating the carrying of guns in public, prohibitions on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, laws restricting the purchase and possession of guns by young people, and laws prohibiting possession by domestic abusers and others with dangerous histories. A new Supreme Court majority could also conceivably change the standard of review in Second Amendment cases, a development that could put nearly every gun law at risk. (Emphasis added)

Erich Pratt, who is the Senior Vice President of Gun Owners of America (GOA), responded:

Moms Demand Action and Everytown’s notion that Amy Coney Barrett could strike down gun control is exactly why we need Barrett on the Court. For far too long, the Supreme Court has refused to take up cases and apply the history, text and tradition of the Second Amendment as well as the Heller and McDonald decisions. Gun owners need a pro-gun majority on the Court that will finally take up and strike down unconstitutional gun control that has been supported by anti-gun judges in the lower courts.

Furthermore, Barrett’s dissent in Kanter demonstrates her strong commitment to the Second Amendment. Aidan Johnston, Director of Federal Affairs of GOA, discussed Judge Barrett’s record on the Second Amendment in a memo, concluding:

Barrett’s dissent from her two Republican-appointed colleagues cited the text and original meaning of the Second Amendment in a bold, uncompromising, and well-researched conclusion, [and it] reveals an unequivocal commitment to the rule of law and an unwillingness to back away from Second Amendment issues due to cowardice, personal preference, or ever-increasing threats by anti-gun politicians…. Gun Owners of America looks forward to the expeditious confirmation of the Honorable Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court of the United States.

What in God’s name do idiots not understand about the last words “shall not be infringed”. I hear all the time that the 2nd Amendment was only meant for musket rifles. Well, the people that say that are dumbasses. Repeating rifles were around in the early 1600’s and yes, if you could afford one, you could own one. So no, our founders were just talking about single shot rifles and pistols.

It’s really simple. Excessive taxes beyond normal sales tax, permits to carry, RED FLAG bullshit, etc......are all infringements.

The 1934 Firearms Act already limited automatic weapons, so the right is apparently not absolute (same as any right).  Most states don't allow concealed carry without a license.

It's all whatever SCOTUS says it is at the time.  We could all say it's all unconstitutional if it makes us feel better, but SCOTUS has ruled otherwise.

I skimmed over the Biden "Plan to END Gun Violence".  It is a round up of the usual suspects, and of course would not even touch the primary area of current gun violence.

Progressives have been trying to destroy this nation and the Constitution since the founding days. We had Progressive lunatics in the Supreme Court in the 1800’s.

Today we have one of the oldest guns we’ve looked at, a Lorenzoni repeating flintlock pistol. The system was designed by an Italian gunmaker in Florence name Michele Lorenzoni. They were made in very small numbers, and the workmanship is stunning, especially considering that they were first manufactured in the 1680s.
Instead of using a revolving cylinder pre-loaded with multiple shots, the Lorenzoni system utilizes powder and ball magazines in the frame of the gun and a rotating breechblock much like a powder throw tool used today for reloading ammunition. But the video describes it better than a written explanation:

Title: Parting Shot | Freedom's Day of Reckoning is Upon Us
Post by: DunkingDan on November 02, 2020, 03:34:02 PM
(https://i.imgur.com/0n9Rdxb.png)

John Adams’ observation that “Liberty, once lost, is lost forever” has mostly held true in human history, but not so for the Second Amendment, which, having been ignored, redefined and abused by the political class, has recently been resurrected by the people, thanks in no small part to their association with the NRA.

In the late 1970s, the idea that the U.S. Supreme Court would affirm the plain meaning of the Second Amendment was almost unthinkable, as was the resurgence of concealed carry and the repeal of illegal and counterproductive measures such as registries, waiting limits, one-gun-per-month rules and bans on commonly owned firearms. We have come a long, long way in a short period of time.

But it could all go away in an instant.

The Joe Biden/Kamala Harris agenda calls for the resuscitation of every single one of the measures that have been dismantled during the last 30 years—and more. If elected—and especially if gifted a pliant Democrat Congress—Biden and Harris would set about returning Americans to 1975. And this time they’re playing for keeps.

The progress that has been made in the courts would be reversed. Biden’s record in the U.S. Senate shows that he opposes judges who interpret the U.S. Constitution as it is written in favor of judges who read their personal preferences into the text. Kamala Harris’ record in the U.S. Senate reveals identical instincts, and her record as attorney general of California confirms her to be a radical on the question. Not only did Harris side with the government in D.C. v. Heller (2008), she even joined an amicus brief that argued that a total ban on handguns was constitutionally permissible and that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right. If Biden and Harris get their way, such fringe notions will become America’s highest law.

Having neutered the courts, Biden and Harris would be free to pursue the remainder of their agenda. Commonly owned firearms and magazines would first be redefined as “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” devices, and then banned. Biden’s platform calls for the registration or confiscation of any gun he deems an “assault weapon,” and both he and Harris have publicly endorsed confiscation of the AR-15, the most-popular rifle in America. Notably, Biden has promised to appoint Beto “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15” O’Rourke to “take care of the gun problem” for him. It is no great secret what that would involve.

Ultimately, under a Biden-Harris administration, all guns would be at risk, thanks to Joe Biden’s ignorant fascination with ensuring that “100 percent of firearms sold in America” use a “smart-gun” technology that does not, in fact, exist. Biden has said over and over that “we have the capacity now in a James Bond-style to make sure no one can pull a trigger unless their DNA and fingerprint is on it,” and he has promised to “transition” the firearms industry to this fantasy.

And then there’s the suffocating bureaucracy that Biden and Harris seek to impose. Under their rules, private transfers would be so heavily regulated that merely lending a friend a hunting rifle would be legally perilous. Gun purchases would be limited to one per month, with no exceptions. The online sale of ammunition would be prohibited. States would be encouraged (bullied) into requiring permission slips for every aspect of firearm ownership. As for concealed carry, Biden thinks it is “irrational.” That all of these measures were tried before, and that they failed—indeed, that they coincided with historical spikes in crime—does not seem to matter.

Time and time again, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have told us who they are. We should believe them—and vote accordingly.

Title: Michigan Gun Shop Owner: Riots Brought Flood of Single Moms Arming T
Post by: DunkingDan on November 02, 2020, 03:46:02 PM
Themselves to Protect Their Children

A Michigan gun shop owner told Breitbart News that Black Lives Matter-related riots in Grand Rapids back in May brought a flood of single mothers into her store seeking to protect their children.

Lisa Mayo owns Flashpoint Firearms in Comstock Park, Michigan, just a few miles north of Grand Rapids.

She said her biggest sales day occurred after rioting in downtown Grand Rapids the night after a George Floyd protest took place. WOOD TV reported (https://www.hollandsentinel.com/news/20200531/shattered-glass-and-flames-demonstration-devolves-into-riot-in-downtown-grand-rapids) that the Grand Rapids Police Department headquarters was tagged with expletives. Storefront windows were smashed. Properties were destroyed. Police cruisers were torched. An estimated $2.4 million in damage was done, according to Mlive (https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2020/06/grand-rapids-riot-costs-now-exceed-24-million-per-rough-estimate.html).

 
Mayo said her new customers “were scared” after the riots in May. “There was a lot of single mothers that were coming in, never would have believed in their whole entire life that they would own a firearm, and they came to my store and said they need to protect themselves, but more importantly, their children.”
Mayo said a “significant portion” of her customers are from the city of Grand Rapids and poor.
“They’re fearing for their lives, and their budget is around that $200-$350 price range,” she said.
Mayo said that any new tax or regulatory expense imposed on gun ownership, like some of the gun control measures Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is proposing, “would put them out of the market. I think that is very unwise because those people are probably the top people that need to protect themselves,” she said.
Taxpayers pay “a lot of money” so elected officials can have Secret Service protection, she said.

“Why don’t we have the right to be able to defend ourselves. Common, middle class people don’t have enough money to pay for a bodyguard, so the next best thing is for us to be able to protect ourselves. It’s everyone’s right to own a firearm,” Mayo said.

 
Ed Swadish, owner of Huron Valley Guns in Oakland County’s New Hudson, told Breitbart News that the “lawlessness and destruction of property” in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests drove increases in sales.
“That just sets people up for wanting to protect themselves,” he said.
Breitbart News previously reported (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/10/17/joe-bidens-gun-agenda-could-cost-ar-15-owners-3-6-billion-in-taxes-for-guns-they-already-own/) that Biden’s proposed gun policy includes a plan to register so-called “assault weapons” like the AR-15s under the National Firearms Act of 1934 (NFA), which means these gun owners could be required to register their AR-15s with federal authorities, submit their fingerprints and photographs, potentially submit to an FBI background check, and pay a $200 federal tax on AR-15s they already own, if these owners decide not to participate in any proposed federal buy back program.

Moreover, Biden’s proposal could also apply (https://www.breitbart.com/2nd-amendment/2020/10/19/joe-bidens-gun-policy-could-tax-gun-owners-200-for-every-high-capacity-magazine-they-own/) the same $200 tax and NFA registration requirements to every so-called “high-capacity” magazine a gun owner possesses, if the owner decides not to participate in any proposed buy back program.



The $200 tax on AR-15 rifles alone would impose a collective $3.6 billion in new taxes on the estimated 18 million privately owned AR-15 rifles in the United States.
Biden’s proposed policy does not define how many rounds a “high-capacity” magazine contains, but past gun control legislation like the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban defined (https://giffords.org/lawcenter/gun-laws/policy-areas/hardware-ammunition/large-capacity-magazines/) it as a capacity of over 10 rounds. Biden himself has criticized (https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/09/03/joe_biden_suggests_banning_magazines_that_can_hold_multiple_bullets.html) the existence of “magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them.”
“Those taxes are so draconian, they would just never happen in a million years. Nobody’s paying those taxes, guaranteed,” Swadish predicted.
“Even if they put it on the retailer, that just means they’re not buying guns from retail anymore,” he added, warning there would be a “gray market” created where owners would buy AR-15 rifles back and forth.
Swadish also argued such taxes would be unconstitutional.
“Their intent is to rile up their base and get more votes and they know the things they’ve mentioned will never happen,” he said.

Title: Americans Have Bought 17 MILLION Guns In Ten Months
Post by: DunkingDan on November 02, 2020, 04:36:49 PM
The Gun Rush of 2020 will be one for the record books as the number of new guns purchased — and new gun owners — has reached all time highs.

Americans have purchased nearly 17 million guns in the first ten months of 2020.  That is more than any other single year since the FBI began keeping data on gun sales..



he Gun Rush began in January, when Ralph Northam overplayed his hand in Virginia and showed Americans exactly what the left wants to do to gun rights nationwide: destroy them.
In response, gun sales were up everywhere, not just in Virginia.
Then as the Corona Scare grew in the media, fears of social unrest grew in the spring.  Gun sales in March and April were higher than every other year in the same period.
As the summer gave way, Americans watched as criminals rioted, looted and burned in dozens of cities across the country.
Most importantly, law-abiding citizens watched as the police were effectively hamstrung by pandering politicians who would not allow the police to put an end to the mayhem on America’s streets.
Seeing Through The Lies
The left had cried for years that citizens didn’t need guns — they should just call the cops!
But 2020 showed the Average American that the left doesn’t want the cops to come, either.  They essentially just wanted the American population to be defenseless in the face of their rioting shock troops, Antifa, and rioting mobs of disgruntled leftists.
Jurgen Brauer, the chief economist at Small Arms Analytics, commented on the numbers his organization had reported:
Quote
“By August, we had exceeded last year’s total. By September, we exceeded the highest total ever. The estimated number of guns sold in the US through the end of September 2020 is not only more than last year, it’s more than any full year in the last 20 years we have records for.”
The next highest year on record was in 2016, when Americans bought 16.6 million guns while Hillary Clinton was running for president against Donald Trump.
Of course, there are still two months left of 2020 — including the likely fallout after the election.
In anticipation of unrest, Walmart announced yesterday that they were removing all guns and ammunition on display in their stores this week.   Walmart cited the “current unrest” and said that their action was a “precaution” against theft if stores are robbed.
Who Knows What Lies Ahead?
2020 has been a roller coaster, but if one good thing that’s come of it is that millions of Americans have woken up to the fact that the government cannot — and in many cases will not — be responsible for the safety of the average citizen.
Buy a gun, learn to use it, carry it everywhere you can.

Title: THE FOUR-PART BIDEN PLAN TO DESTROY THE SECOND AMENDMENT
Post by: DunkingDan on November 03, 2020, 01:32:09 PM
Joe Biden’s So-Called “Gun Safety” Plan Explained
For the last four years we have had a Republican President in the White House. As in decades past, Republicans muddled with the NICS system and failed to defend bump stocks. But had Hillary Clinton won, gun owners would have suffered many more losses than this.
(https://gunowners.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/joebiden-264x300.jpg)
However, Gun Owners of America was able to achieve many policy goals under the Trump Administration.
We detailed that in an article titled: Ten Wins for Gun Owners Under the Trump Administration (https://gunowners.org/na10222020/). But our victories will not survive a Biden-Harris Administration.
Imagine the destruction that will be caused by an Administration that refuses to acknowledge (https://www.houstoncourant.com/houston-voices/2020/kamala-harris-is-the-gun-owners-worst-nightmare) that the Second Amendment protects an individual right. Or a President who believes that’s it’s okay to confiscate (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uq4vPgyRQY8) millions of commonly-owned firearms.
That’s what we are facing if Joe Biden wins the 2020 Presidential Election.
The following contains quotations directly from the Joe Biden gun control proposal (https://joebiden.com/GunSafety/). I will contextualize each proposed infringement.
Semi-automatic Gun and Magazine Bans and Confiscation
Federal Gun Bans and Magazine Bans to be enforced (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jVChf3ajb4&feature=youtu.be&t=505) by Robert Francis Take your AR-15 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vEnTjs2RV0&feature=youtu.be&t=64) O’Rourke:
Quote
Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Federal law (https://www.fws.gov/le/hunter-responsibility.html) prevents hunters from hunting migratory game birds with more than three shells in their shotgun. That means our federal law does more to protect ducks than children. It’s wrong. Joe Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons. This time, the bans will be designed based on lessons learned from the 1994 bans. For example, the ban on assault weapons will be designed to prevent manufacturers from circumventing the law by making minor changes that don’t limit the weapon’s lethality. While working to pass this legislation, Biden will also use his executive authority (https://www.atf.gov/resource-center/docs/january-2011-importability-certain-shotgunspdf/download) to ban the importation of assault weapons.
Mandatory gun and magazine registration, if you can afford it as each firearm or magazine will require a separate $200 NFA tax stamp:
Quote
Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. Currently, the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Due to these requirements, such weapons are rarely (https://giffords.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Giffords_GLC_assault-weapons_NFA.pdf) used in crimes. As president, Biden will pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons (https://giffords.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Giffords_GLC_assault-weapons_NFA.pdf) under the National Firearms Act.
Mandatory gun confiscation:
Quote
Buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities. Biden will also institute a program to buy back weapons of war currently on our streets. This will give individuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.
Prepare to ban the manufacture of all guns except so-called “smart guns:”
Quote
Put America on the path to ensuring that 100% of firearms sold in America are smart guns. Today, we have the technology to allow only authorized users to fire a gun. For example, existing smart gun technology requires a fingerprint match before use. Biden believes we should work to eventually require that 100% of firearms sold in the U.S. are smart guns. But, right now the NRA and gun manufacturers are bullying firearms dealers who try to sell these guns. Biden will stand up against these bullying tactics and issue a call to action for gun manufacturers, dealers, and other public and private entities to take steps to accelerate our transition to smart guns.
Strip the firearm and ammunition industry of civil liability protections and hold manufacturers, engaged in lawful commerce, liable (https://www.congress.gov/116/bills/s4718/BILLS-116s4718is.xml) for criminals engaging in criminal activity:
Quote
Hold gun manufacturers accountable. In 2005, then-Senator Biden voted against (https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=109&session=1&vote=00219) the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (https://www.congress.gov/bill/109th-congress/senate-bill/397), but gun manufacturers successfully lobbied Congress to secure its passage. This law protects these manufacturers from being held civilly liable for their products – a protection granted to no other industry. Biden will prioritize repealing this protection.
Ban the purchase of more than one firearm per month at the federal level:
Quote
Reduce stockpiling of weapons. In order to reduce the stockpiling of firearms, Biden supports legislation (https://marchforourlives.com/peace-plan/) restricting the number of firearms an individual may purchase per month to one.
Universal Background [Registration] Checks
Bribe states to create licenses to purchase firearms using federal tax dollars:
Quote
Give states incentives to set up gun licensing programs. Biden will enact legislation (https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/3285) to give states and local governments grants to require individuals to obtain a license prior to purchasing a gun.
References about UBCs that are reminiscent (https://www.firearmsandliberty.com/PDF-News/nij-gun-policy-memo.pdf) of the leaked Obama-Biden Administration’s NIJ memo that said “Effectiveness depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration” (emphasis added):
Quote
Keep guns out of dangerous hands. The federal background check system (the National Instant Criminal Background Check System) is one of the best tools we have to prevent gun violence, but it’s only effective when it’s used. Biden will enact universal background check legislation and close other loopholes that allow people who should be prohibited from purchasing firearms from making those purchases. Specifically, he will:
End the private sale of firearms, except for gifts to immediate family… for now:
Quote
Require background checks for all gun sales. Today, an estimated 1 in 5 (https://www.acpjournals.org/doi/10.7326/M16-1590) firearms are sold or transferred without a background check. Biden will enact universal background check legislation, requiring a background check for all gun sales with very limited exceptions, such as gifts between close family members. This will close the so-called “gun show and online sales loophole” that the Obama-Biden Administration narrowed, but which cannot be fully closed by executive action alone.
Banning the sale of guns, ammo, and gun parts online:
Quote
End the online sale of firearms and ammunitions [sic]. Biden will enact legislation (https://marchforourlives.com/peace-plan/) to prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts.
Enact a Homemade Gun Ban.
Quote
Stop “ghost guns.” One way people who cannot legally obtain a gun may gain access to a weapon is by assembling a one [sic] on their own, either by buying a kit of disassembled gun parts or 3D printing a working firearm. Biden will stop the proliferation of these so-called “ghost guns” by passing legislation requiring that purchasers of gun kits or 3D printing code pass a federal background check.
Even more funding for the Universal Background Check System:
Quote
Adequately fund the background check system. President Obama and Vice President Biden expanded incentives (https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/sites/default/files/docs/november_exec_actions_progress_report_final.pdf) for states to submit records of prohibited persons into the background checks system. As president, Biden will continue to prioritize that funding and ensure that the FBI is adequately funded to accurately and efficiently handle the NICS system.
Regulate what gun owners can and cannot do with their property in the privacy of their own homes:
Quote
Require gun owners to safely store their weapons. Biden will pass legislation requiring firearm owners to store weapons safely in their homes.
Prosecute gun owners for the new “crime” of teaching a minor how to safely handle a firearm or how to shoot or hunt with a firearm:
Quote
Hold adults accountable for giving minors access to firearms. Biden supports legislation (https://giffords.org/lawcenter/gun-laws/policy-areas/child-consumer-safety/child-access-prevention/) holding adults criminally and civilly liable for directly or negligently giving a minor access to a firearm, regardless of whether the minor actually gains possession of the firearm.
More funding to prosecute NICS denials:
Quote
Prioritize prosecution of straw purchasers. “Straw purchasers” buy a firearm on behalf of an individual who cannot pass a background check. Biden will end those loopholes by enacting a law to make all straw purchases a serious federal crime and ensure the U.S. Justice Department has sufficient resources to prioritize their prosecution.
Funding to send police after NICS denials, again, 95% of which are law abiding citizens who received “false positive” denials from the FBI:
Quote
Notify law enforcement when a potential firearms purchaser fails a background check. Too often, when prohibited persons attempting to buy a firearm fail a background check, state and local law enforcement is never informed of the attempt. As president, Biden will direct the FBI to set up a process to ensure timely notification of denials to state and local law enforcement, and he’ll support legislation to codify this process. This empowers law enforcement to follow up and ensure prohibited persons do not attempt to acquire firearms through other means.
Prosecute gun owners when a criminal steals their firearm or when they “lose” a firearm for failure to file a police report:
Quote
Require firearms owners to report if their weapon is lost or stolen. Responsible gun owners have a responsibility to inform law enforcement if their weapon is lost or stolen. Biden will enact legislation to make this the law of the land.
New “Boyfriend Loophole” Gun Ban, which includes special federal Gun Confiscation Orders for those convicted of “stalking” because they threatened (https://www.peters.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/peters-bill-to-protect-survivors-of-domestic-violence-and-pets-to-be-signed-into-law) a pet:
Quote
Close other loopholes in the federal background check system. In addition to closing the “boyfriend loophole” highlighted below […]
New “Hate Crime Loophole” Gun Ban, which includes a gun ban for referring (https://nypost.com/2019/09/26/city-bans-calling-someone-an-illegal-alien-out-of-hate/) to someone as an “illegal alien” in New York City:
Quote
Close the “hate crime loophole.” Biden will enact legislation (https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/2708) prohibiting an individual “who has been convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime, or received an enhanced sentence for a misdemeanor because of hate or bias in its commission,” from purchasing or possessing a firearm.
Eliminate a three-business day deadline for the FBI to complete a NICS check, creating a potential 10 day waiting period for firearm purchases:
Quote
Close the “Charleston loophole.” The Charleston loophole allows people to complete a firearms purchase if their background check is not completed within three business days. Biden supports the proposal in the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, which extends the timeline from three to 10 business days. Biden will also direct the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to put on his desk within his first 100 days as president a report detailing the cases in which background checks are not completed within 10 business days and steps the federal government can take to reduce or eliminate this occurrence.
Further Gun Confiscation Legislation at the Federal, State, and Local Levels
Increase prosecution of NICS denials, 95% of which are law-abiding citizens who received “false positive” denials from the FBI:
Quote
Create an effective program to ensure individuals who become prohibited from possessing firearms relinquish their weapons. Federal law defines categories of individuals who are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms, and the federal background check system is an effective tool for ensuring prohibited persons cannot purchase firearms. But we lack any serious tool to ensure that when someone becomes newly prohibited – for example, because they commit a violent crime – they relinquish possession of their firearms. There are some promising models for how this could be enforced. For example (https://lawcenter.giffords.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Keeping-Illegal-Guns-Out-of-Dangerous-Hands-2.19.pdf), California has a mandatory process for ensuring relinquishment by any individual newly subject to a domestic violence restraining order. As president, Biden will direct the FBI and ATF to outline a model relinquishment process, enact any necessary legislation to ensure relinquishment when individuals newly fall under one of the federal prohibitions, and then provide technical and financial assistance to state and local governments to establish effective relinquishment processes on their own.
Bribe states to enact ex parte Gun Confiscation Orders with no due process using federal tax dollars:
Quote
Incentivize state “extreme risk” laws. Extreme risk laws (https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/506/text), also called “red flag” laws, enable family members or law enforcement officials to temporarily remove an individual’s access to firearms when that individual is in crisis and poses a danger to themselves or others. Biden will incentivize the adoption of these laws by giving states funds to implement them. And, he’ll direct the U.S. Department of Justice to issue best practices and offer technical assistance to states interested in enacting an extreme risk law.
Executive Action
Reinstate the Social Security Gun Ban:
Quote
Reinstate the Obama-Biden policy to keep guns out of the hands of certain people unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons, which President Trump reversed. In 2016, the Obama-Biden Administration finalized a rule (https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2016/12/19/2016-30407/implementation-of-the-nics-improvement-amendments-act-of-2007) to make sure the Social Security Administration (SSA) sends to the background check system records that it holds of individuals who are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms because they have been adjudicated by the SSA as unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons. But one of the first actions Donald Trump took as president was to reverse (https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-joint-resolution/40) this rule. President Biden will enact legislation to codify this policy.
Perpetuate an ineffective and unconstitutional ban on sharing 3D printed gun files online:
Quote
Biden will ensure that the authority for firearms exports stays with the State Department, and if needed, reverse a proposed rule (https://www.forumarmstrade.org/uploads/1/9/0/8/19082495/giffords_exports_letter_7-9-18.pdf) by President Trump. This will ensure the State Department continues to block the code used to 3D print firearms from being made available on the Internet.
“Enforcing the laws we already have” against law-abiding gun owners, such as executive action to continue banning pistol-braced firearms and re-designating them as Short Barreled Rifles or Any Other Weapons:
Quote
Reform, fund, and empower the U.S. Justice Department to enforce our gun laws. Biden will direct his Attorney General to deliver to him within his first 100 days a set of recommendations for restructuring the ATF and related Justice Department agencies to most effectively enforce our gun laws. Biden will then work to secure sufficient funds for the Justice Department to effectively enforce our existing gun laws, increase the frequency of inspections of firearms dealers, and repeal riders that get in the way of that work.


Each President sets the tone for their Presidency by achieving as many policy goals as they can in their first 100 days in office. For gun owners, this is bad news. Using the laws that we already have, a Biden-Harris Administration can wreak havoc on gun owners without any new acts of Congress. Still, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris promise much worse for gun owners.
From gun and magazine bans, licenses to purchase firearms, universal registration checks, and gun confiscation without due process, a Biden-Harris Administration promises four years of unrelenting efforts to infringe on the rights of gun owners.
Keep in mind, this list is far from exhaustive of what Joe Biden has promised (https://joebiden.com/GunSafety/) he will do.
Of course, Gun Owners of America will defend your right to keep and bear arms through our lobbying efforts in Washington D.C. and our legal efforts in the courts regardless of who wins the 2020 Presidential and Congressional elections.
However, it is every American’s duty to support the Constitution and our Second Amendment-recognized rights at the polls in every election.
So, get out there and defend your Second Amendment-protected rights!
Even if you have voted, please share this voter guide (https://gunowners.org/congressional-ratings/) with your pro-gun friends and family before they get to the voting booth.
Remember: Every … Vote … Counts.

Title: What I Learned From Several Californians Who Just Bought Their First G
Post by: DunkingDan on November 03, 2020, 01:50:34 PM
This year of uncertainty has left innocent citizens to face a question that is all too real: What happens when the police literally aren’t there? That was the question that forced San Francisco Bay area residents John and Sarah (not their real names) to re-think their position on guns.
“I didn’t believe in guns,” said John. “I wouldn’t even let the kids have Nerf guns around the house.”
Like many, starting last March, John began to realize he had to be prepared for the worst. John re-thought his anti-gun worldview. “That’s the whole reason we’re here learning to use guns,” said John.
John and Sarah were speaking to me from Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, one of dozens of shooting ranges in the Nevada desert. Front Sight covers a big chunk of real estate in the desert southwest of Pahrump, Nev. This firearms oasis draws people from nearly every state to participate in courses. I was there with my brother to take a four-day defensive handgun class.

There are also rifle and shotgun classes, armorer classes, ropes courses and driving classes. Front Sight trains approximately 3,500 students every month (nearly one million since 1996) in order to fulfill its goal “to positively change the image of gun ownership by safely training citizens to levels of skill at arms that far exceed law enforcement and military standards,” according to Founder and Director, Dr. Ignatius Piazza.

I was at Front Sight because of my brother. He has recently become more involved with firearms, and when a co-worker suggested a trip to Front Sight, he jumped at the chance, and invited me to join them. Like many, I’ve seen Front Sight’s promotions and, frankly, I was skeptical. All the offers, all the promises ... it all seemed way too good to be true. But, the idea of a four-day handgun course for free was too tempting to pass up. So, after a few online clicks and a seven-hour drive, we were joining 900 other students and firearms enthusiasts in the 110-degree Nevada desert heat.
We arrived during the first week that Front Sight had been open since March this year. Front Sight voluntarily closed in order to support the COVID-19 control efforts of the state of Nevada. Though classified as an “essential industry” and allowed to remain open, Front Sight wanted to be a team player. This first week of September was the first week of its re-opening efforts. As such, they were not at full staff.
After a brief introduction to the facility, we met our range-mates and instructors and began our quest to be better gun handlers.
Angela, a young student from Central California, had feelings similar to John and Sarah about guns. “I had never been exposed to guns until I saw one of my uncle’s. He showed it to us and I was really scared—I didn’t even want to touch it. Just seeing it was fearful.” Until her first morning at Front Sight, Angela had never fired a gun.
My brother had purchased a handgun about a year ago, and then got his concealed-carry permit. He explained his reasons for being at Front Sight: “I wanted to increase my understanding and build my skills in order to handle a gun safely and competently.”
Standing next to me on the firing line with his SIG was Chris. He and his wife, Adriana, are no strangers to firearms. Having owned guns and shot for many years, they were at Front Sight because they wanted to improve. “It’s a little humbling at first,” said Chris. “Because you come in and you’re like, I’ve shot. I can hit targets. But then they tell you, ‘try our way.’”
When Sarah got to the firing line for the first time, her response was unexpected. “I was emotional. I was scared. I was surprised I did it.” John described that first experience firing a gun this way: “It was weird. The first time I touched it, I couldn’t rack it; I felt uncomfortable with it; it was almost a little scary.”
Again, I was skeptical. I felt like I already had a pretty good handle on the basics. But in that first morning, our Front Sight instructors made me a believer. For example, the explanation and training we received in the Weaver stance and the confirmation I was given about handling my cross-eye dominance made the whole trip worthwhile. Every day was a continual process of learning and practice. Presentation, trigger press, reset, malfunctions … everything a new gun owner needs to know about safely using a firearm. And it was all presented in a slow, steady pace that logically built from one principal to the next—and was always reinforced with practice, practice, practice.
“I’m amazed. I really am,” said Adriana. After her training experience, she described what it was like to draw from concealment and put two shots on target in less than two seconds: “[It feels] awesome! As I improved and I actually hit where I was supposed to hit on purpose, that was like winning first place!” Chris was also enthusiastic about his experience. “When you stick to it, like today, I got the results I wanted on paper. If you’ve got a gun, you need to come. Come and take the class. Come learn. Come do it.”  
“Like I said, I was scared of even touching a weapon,” said Angela. “Now I feel fully confident. I definitely feel confident I can protect myself and my family.”
Reflecting on his four days in the desert, my brother said, “I appreciated the emphasis on safety and situational awareness before, during and after any encounter. It was a huge boost to my confidence.”
In looking back on her training experience, Sarah said, “I’m getting more confident each day. And I’m realizing it’s not just pick it up, point and shoot. There’s more to having a gun than that.”
Last year’s John is “night-and-day” different from this year’s John. Last year’s John said, “Don’t need a gun, don’t want a gun; not in my house.” This year’s John says, “We need a gun and we need to know how to use it. I want to be someone who owns a gun and is trained on it. And I feel much more confident about how to handle a gun.” “Absolutely,” said Sarah.
As we finished day four and said goodbye to our new friends, it was difficult to leave. We had all learned so much and had all gained a greater measure of confidence—we all wanted it to continue. Now, did I become an absolute deadeye? Maybe not, but I definitely improved and, most importantly, I learned what I was doing wrong and how I can correct those issues—I know exactly what to work on between now and the next course I take at Front Sight. It was worth every sweltering minute in the burning sun.

Title: NEW JERSEY SUED OVER HANDGUN CARRY BAN
Post by: DunkingDan on November 03, 2020, 06:40:36 PM
Two legal gun owners who have jumped through repeated governmental hoops only to be denied permits to carry a handgun have teamed up with pro-2A groups to take on the Garden State. 
The 47-page federal lawsuit, (https://d3n8a8pro7vhmx.cloudfront.net/firearmspolicycoalition/pages/5809/attachments/original/1604334776/2020-11-02-Bennett-Complaint.pdf?1604334776) filed this week, is backed by the Firearms Policy Coalition, Second Amendment Foundation, and New Jersey Second Amendment Society on behalf of two members, Stanley Bennett and Michael Hucker. Both men are over 21 years of age and meet legal eligibility requirements for gun carry permits, but have been turned down by local police for such permits with the agencies issuing a blanket statement that the applicants didn't have a “justifiable need." 
Bennett, who never "had so much as a parking ticket in over 40 years," owns a federally licensed gun store and lawfully transports firearms to and from locations. He was turned down for a carry permit by the Clayton Police Department after a nine-month wait. 
Hucker, who owns a real estate business where he sometimes carries large amounts of cash and works for a Fortune 100 company, a role in which he could face kidnapping, applied for a carry permit from the Guttenberg Police Department in Oct. 2018 and was turned down in Feb. 2019.  
The two men and their allied pro-gun groups are suing the respective police departments as well as the Attorney General of the State of New Jersey and the Superintendent in the New Jersey State Police in their official capacities, arguing the state's regulatory scheme deprives them of their Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights. 
“The people of New Jersey have been oppressed by an abusive, authoritarian government for far too long, and we intend to remedy that beginning today,” said FPC President Brandon Combs. “Our nation fought the Revolutionary War to forcefully reject the Crown’s heavy-handed rule and denial of fundamental liberties, including the right to bear arms, but the State has regressively called back to that tyranny as inspiration for its current policies.
"Governor Murphy, Attorney General Grewal, and other anti-rights government officials may not like that people have the right to carry loaded guns in public, but their opinion doesn’t trump the Constitution. It’s time to bring freedom back home to the Garden State,” said Combs. 
The lawsuit is known as Bennett v. Davis and was filed Monday in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey.

Title: Are Concealed-Carry Applications Being Slowed on Purpose?
Post by: DunkingDan on November 04, 2020, 10:33:51 AM
Reports from around the country reveal that a number of state and local agencies are not approving concealed-carry permit applications in a timely fashion. In some cases, the delays are well past the time frames written into the application laws. The states and agencies that work with providing these services have generally blamed the same thing for the slowdowns: COVID-19 and associated problems with staffing.
As John Lott has documented (https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3703977) at the Crime Prevention Research Center, the number of concealed-carry permits increased every year over the last decade through 2019. With the boom in gun sales this year, especially among first-time firearms owners, one would assume a surge in new carry permits, too. Instead, the number of new carry permits for 2020 has declined compared to past years.
“There is a simple reason that concealed handgun permits have not increased as much as gun sales: many states stopped issuing new permits for many months because of the [COVID-19] virus,” Lott reported.
In Michigan, for example, FOX2 Detroit (https://www.fox2detroit.com/news/concealed-pistol-license-wait-is-9-months-long-in-wayne-county) found that concealed-carry applicants in Wayne County have experienced approval wait times up to nine months in length.
To give a specific example in Michigan, Kristal Hunt, who says she needs some protection, took the state’s required Concealed Pistol License class and filled out the necessary paperwork. But for the application to be finalized, Hunt and others must have a face-to-face appointment with a county official. Hunt recently received her appointment date—for July 2021!
“It seems like that’s the common thing in Wayne County; it’s barriers when you’re trying to go about things in the right way,” said Hunt.
Lisa Williams, spokeswoman for the Wayne County Clerk’s Office, cited increased demand for the permit, plus COVID-19-related staff reductions and displacements, for the long wait times.
A Wayne County statement read, in part: “Wayne County is the largest county in the state of Michigan. The volume that we service far surpasses that of any other county throughout the state. Our office has taken the action step to request additional fingerprinting machines which will expedite the processing time.”
Meanwhile, a person living in Illinois can’t even begin the process to apply for a carry permit or purchase a firearm until they are issued that state’s Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card. But FOID approvals have been taking so long that the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) filed a lawsuit in federal court this summer seeking to force the Illinois State Police (ISP) to comply with the mandated one-month requirement to issue a Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card, if the applicant meets all qualifications.
ISRA is that state’s NRA-affiliated association. In a posting to its website, ISRA noted (https://www.isra.org/News/israsaf-file-federal-lawsuit-demanding-illinois-state-police-stop-foid-card-delay): “The law requires that the Illinois State Police either approve or deny a FOID card application within 30 days, but ISP has been dragging its feet, leaving applicants in limbo for months. In some cases, the agency does not act for as long as 90 days. These delays have gone on long enough. We had hoped to avoid litigation, but at this moment, we have no choice.”
In Wake County, N.C., a surge in applications prompted the Wake County Sheriff's Office to bring in five extra workers to help process record levels of pistol-permit applications this past August.
Wake County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Sefton noted that his office had issued over 5,000 permits in one two-week period this summer.

Title: Indiana Gun Store Gets Shipment Of 80,000 Rounds On Election Day,
Post by: DunkingDan on November 04, 2020, 06:46:02 PM
 Sells Out In Just 30 Minutes

Blythe’s Sport Shops had a busy day, yesterday.  The sporting goods chain, with locations in Griffith and Valparaiso, Indiana had a shipment of ammunition arrive in the early morning hours on election day.

The shipment contained 80,000 rounds of 9mm ammo.  But in just 30 minutes after the store opened, all the ammo was sold out, already.

That’s a rate of 2,666 rounds per minute.  That’s roughly equivalent to 60 AR-15s –converted to 9mm — firing at the same time for 60 seconds!


Store Chief Operations officer, Kyle Goranson, said that ammo had been in short supply for most of 2020.  In fact, he reported that none of the customers who came in on election day even mentioned the election at all.


We’ve reported all year about the skyrocketing demand for both guns (https://www.secondamendmentdaily.com/2020/07/gun-sales-up-95-ammo-sales-up-139-sales-to-black-americans-up-58/) and ammunition. We reported that ammo sales are up 139% over last year (https://www.secondamendmentdaily.com/2020/09/not-a-round-to-be-found-ammo-sales-are-up-139-over-2019/) at this time.
But numbers like this are still incredible to read about.
Somewhere in Indiana, some lucky gun owners are breathing a sigh of relief, today, while the rest of us are on edge, waiting the results of the election.  No matter how it ends, ammo isn’t going to be easy to find any time soon.

Title: 4th grader suspended for having a BB gun in his bedroom during virtual

A 9-year-old Louisiana student was suspended after a teacher reported seeing a gun in the boy's bedroom during a virtual class.
The attorney representing the child's family said it was a BB gun and the school went too far -- applying its on-campus weapons policy without considering the privacy of the child and his family.
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry announced Friday his office is investigating.

Title: Taxing The Second Amendment To Death
Post by: DunkingDan on November 06, 2020, 11:24:56 AM
In the wake of widespread rioting and looting, it is estimated that 5 million Americans purchased firearms for the first time (https://www.nssf.org/first-time-gun-buyers-grow-to-nearly-5-million-in-2020) this year.
But the vast majority of purchasers probably don’t realize that Congress subjected (https://gunowners.org/your-right-to-self-defense-is-taxed-and-you-probably-dont-even-realize-it/) their firearm and ammunition sales to a federal “sin” tax of 10 to 11 percent.
While gun owners and organizations have become complacent with this regressive infringement, anti-gunners want to make a 10 percent tax on firearms look mild.

Title: Report: 1.9 Million Gun Sales in October 2020
Post by: DunkingDan on November 08, 2020, 02:34:44 PM
There were approximately 1.9 million guns sold in October 2020 in the United States, a year-over-year increase of 65%  from October 2019, according to Small Arms Analytics (http://smallarmsanalytics.com/v1/pr/2020-11-02.pdf). 
Single handgun sales totaled approximately 1.0 million, which is up 81% from October 2019.
For long-guns, there were approximately 740,000 sales, which is an increase of 48% over sales in October 2019.



"All other likely background check-related sales (0.14 million) increased year-over-year by 58%," said Small Arms analytics.  "This includes so-called 'multiple' sales where the exact split between handguns and long-guns cannot be determined from the data record."
Jurgen Brauer, the chief economist at Small Arms Analytics, said (http://smallarmsanalytics.com/v1/pr/2020-11-02.pdf), “2020 continues on its record firearms sales pace, with the year-to-date total now reaching 18.6 million units sold. Handguns continue to outsell long-guns but at a continuously declining rate since June of this year. (In June, the rate was 2.2 handguns per long-gun; in October, it was 1.4 handguns per long-gun.)”

Title: Biden Proposes Reviving Obama Social Security Gun Ban
Post by: DunkingDan on November 12, 2020, 01:11:18 PM
Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s gun control proposals could mean reviving the Obama gun ban that barred certain Social Security recipients from buying firearms.

The Social Security gun ban was an Obama-era policy which targeted benefit recipients who needed help managing their finances. On July 18, 2015, the Los Angeles Times reported that the ban would be sweeping; that it would cover those who are unable to manage their own affairs for a multitude of reasons–from “subnormal intelligence or mental illness” to “incompetency,” an unspecified “condition,” or “disease.”



Breitbart News reported that the policy was finalized by the Obama Social Security Administration on December 19, 2016, weeks after Donald Trump won the presidential election, and just over a month before he was to be sworn into office.

Republicans focused on repealing the ban early in the Trump presidency. On February 12, 2017, Breitbart News reported that Duke University psychiatry and behavioral science professor Jeffrey Swanson believed Congress was right to repeal Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban. Swanson suggested the ban targeted the “vulnerable” rather than the dangerous.

Swanson used a Washington Post column to explain the ban, saying, “Social Security beneficiaries with psychiatric disabilities who are assigned a money manager for their disability benefits would be reported to the FBI’s background check database as people ineligible to purchase firearms.” He noted that “the mental health conditions in question might range from moderate intellectual disabilities to depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia,” and then pointed to academic work showing that “the vast majority of mentally ill individuals” are not violent or suicidal.

On February 28, 2017, Trump signed legislation to do away with the ban.

Biden’s campaign website indicates that, if elected, he will revive the ban that targeted certain Social Security recipients.

The website says:

Reinstate the Obama-Biden policy to keep guns out of the hands of certain people unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons, which President Trump reversed. In 2016, the Obama-Biden Administration finalized a rule to make sure the Social Security Administration (SSA) sends to the background check system records that it holds of individuals who are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms because they have been adjudicated by the SSA as unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons. But one of the first actions Donald Trump took as president was to reverse this rule. President Biden will enact legislation to codify this policy.

Title: ACB Gets Her First Crack At The Second Amendment On Friday
Post by: DunkingDan on November 13, 2020, 12:45:06 PM
For the first time since Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as an Associate Justice, the Supreme Court will be considering two gun-related cases in its Friday conference. One case deals with a local gun ban in Boulder, Colorado, while the other challenges the seizure of two firearms from a Rhode Island man, and has huge implications not only for our Second Amendment rights, but our Fourth Amendment rights as well.

Back in 2018, the uber-liberal enclave of Boulder, Colorado passed a ban on the possession and sale of so-called assault weapons, including those that were currently owned by residents, who were forced to register their guns with the local government or else commit a criminal offense. The city council also decided to infringe on the rights of residents even more by raising the age to purchase a firearm to 21, as opposed to the state and federal limitation of being 18 to purchase long guns and 21 to purchase handguns.

Shortly after the city council’s anti-gun move, the Mountain States Legal Foundation filed suit on behalf of several plaintiffs, including Independence Institute president and Boulder resident Jon Caldara, challenging both new gun laws in federal court. Not long after that, another challenge was filed, but this time in state court, and attorneys for the city of Boulder argued that the federal case should be put on hold until the state-level challenge had been resolved. A U.S. District Judge agreed and issued a stay in Caldara v. Boulder, putting a halt to the proceedings.

It’s been more than two years since both cases were filed, but the Colorado State Supreme Court has yet to issue a ruling in the state-level challenge, called Chambers v. City of Boulder. Meanwhile, the MSLF has continued to try to get the federal case going, but they’ve been turned away by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. Back in October, the organization asked the Supreme Court to give the green light to the Caldara case, arguing that “the rights involved in this case, namely Boulder residents’ natural right to self-defense, are too important for a federal court to stay its hand,” and tomorrow the case will be heard in conference among the nine justices.

You can read the petition to the Supreme Court in its entirety here, but I’m not going to quote from it because the legal arguments at this point have little to do with Boulder’s gun ban itself and much more to do with when federal courts can hear a challenge to a state law. Most of the briefs are taken up with an in-depth exploration of the issue and  a 1941 case called Railroad Commission v. Pullman Co., which I’m sure is fascinating to some people but makes my eyes glaze over.

Suffice it to say that the Mountain States Legal Foundation is arguing that the federal lawsuit shouldn’t be put on ice while the state case is still proceeding, given the fundamental rights that are at stake in the meantime.

Don’t expect the Supreme Court to come out and strike down Boulder’s gun ban an age restriction. In fact, that’s not even what the MSLF is asking for at this point. Right now this is about access to the federal courts while a fundamental right is being denied, and whether or not the federal courts are bound by precedent to stay the proceedings while the Chambers case inches its way through the state courts.

Obviously, I’m rooting for the Court to allow the lawsuit to proceed. We know that this case is ultimately going to be litigated in federal courts, and every day that the issues at hand go unresolved people’s rights are being put into question (and I believe, infringed).

As I mentioned, Caldara isn’t the only gun-related case that the justices will consider in conference tomorrow. In Caniglia v. Strom, though, the primary issue is related to our 4th Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures.. in this case the seizure of two handguns from a 68-year old Rhode Island man.

Edward Caniglia and his wife got into an argument one afternoon in 2015, and in a moment of melodrama, he put an unloaded pistol on a table in front of his wife and said, “why don’t you just shoot me and get me out of my misery.” Caniglia’s wife of 22-years left the house instead, but when her husband didn’t answer her phone call the next day she asked police to make a wellness check.

They found that Caniglia was just fine, and he explained to police what had happened. Even though the officers said he “seemed normal,” they still told him they were going to take him to the local hospital to get evaluated. The police specifically told Caniglia that they would not take his two handguns if he voluntarily went with them, so he did. He was checked out, pronounced no danger to himself or others, billed $1,000 for the privilege of being told what he already knew, and was sent home, only to discover that police had in fact taken the two guns from the home. Not only that, they did so without a warrant.

Edward Caniglia’s been trying to get his guns back from the Cranston, Rhode Island police department ever since. Tomorrow, the justices will consider the arguments of Caniglia’s attorneys and the defense attorneys for the Cranston police department. The defendants maintain that an exception to the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures applies in the search of Caniglia’s home, though even the First Circuit Court of Appeals realized it was treading in uncharted waters when they agreed with the defense.

The court explained that the community caretaking exception derives from Cady v. Dombrowski, 413 U.S. 433 (1973). In Cady, the Supreme Court upheld the warrantless search of a disabled vehicle when the police reasonably believed that the vehicle’s trunk contained a gun and the vehicle was vulnerable to vandals. The Cady Court stated that police officers frequently engage in “community caretaking functions, totally divorced from detection, investigation, or acquisition of evidence relating to the violation of a criminal statute.”

The First Circuit stated that since the Court’s 1973 decision, the community caretaking doctrine has become a “catchall” for the responsibilities officers must discharge. The court has held that the Fourth Amendment’s imperatives are “satisfied” under the doctrine when police officers perform “noninvestigatory duties.” The court noted that officers enjoy a “wide latitude” in deciding how to best execute their community caretaking duties.

Until this appeal, the First Circuit only applied the community caretaking exception to the motor vehicle context. The court described the doctrine’s reach outside of the motor vehicle context as “ill-defined,” describing that several circuits have indicated that the community caretaking exception cannot justify a warrantless entry into a home, while other circuits have recognized that the doctrine allows warrantless entries onto private premises.

As a case of first impression, the First Circuit agreed with those courts that extended the community caretaking exception beyond the motor vehicle context. The court explained that because the core principle of the doctrine is to give police “elbow room” to take appropriate action when unforeseen circumstances present a hazard requiring immediate attention, the doctrine should not be limited to the motor vehicle context.

The court of appeals next considered whether the community caretaking exception extends to the police activity at issue in this appeal – the seizure of an individual whom officers have an objectively reasonable basis to believe poses an imminent risk of harm to himself or others, and the seizure of firearms that the officers have an objectively reasonable basis for thinking an individual may use to harm himself or others.

The court found that the police activities at issue are a “natural fit” for the doctrine. The court explained that these activities are distinct from normal criminal investigation, stating that when police respond to individuals who present an imminent threat to themselves or others, they do so to “preserve and protect community safety.”

This could be a hugely important Fourth Amendment case if the Supreme Court agrees to hear it, and it could serve as a check on the ever-expanding powers of the government if they rule that the police’s desire for “elbow room” doesn’t take precedence over the individual citizen’s right to privacy and security in their own home.

We could know as early as Monday what the Supreme Court plans to do with the Caldara and Caniglia cases, so look for an update after the conference orders come out Monday morning.

Title: DEMS SEEK TO STRENGTHEN ATF, KEEP CHECK DATA
Post by: DunkingDan on November 14, 2020, 02:44:52 PM
Democrats in Congress, allied with every large anti-gun group in existence, have unveiled the "ATF Improvement and Modernization Act."
The proposal, introduced by U.S. Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) in the House and U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) in the Senate, is an 18-page bill  (https://www.vanhollen.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/AIM Act Final for Introduction.pdf)which allows indefinite retention of NICS data, puts licensed gun dealers under increased scrutiny, opens the books on firearms trace data to anti-gun researchers, and increases funding to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
"This commonsense legislation puts forward sweeping changes that will help ATF – and our country – tackle the gun violence epidemic,” said  (https://beyer.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=4938)Van Hollen, who has long partnered  (https://twitter.com/chrisvanhollen/status/1171944001609588736)with gun control groups such as Everytown. 
Of the 35 bills (https://www.congress.gov/member/chris-van-hollen/V000128?q={) the Maryland Democrat has signed on to in Congress, many are anti-gun to include legislation against 3D printing, a controversial ban on "assault weapons," universal background checks, handgun licensing, and so-called "red flag" laws. 
Introduced in the Senate as }&s=3&r=1"]S.4841 (http://"https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/4841?q={"search"%3A["S4841") Van Hollen's latest measure has the enthusiastic support from Everytown for Gun Safety, Giffords, Brady, March for Our Lives, and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, among others. 
"Too often we don’t see or think about the men and women at ATF working to make our country a safer place," said Adzi Vokhiwa, Giffords federal affairs director. "Their ingenuity and courage has been tragically limited by a federal government which has tied ATF’s hands at every turn. Senator Van Hollen and Representative Beyer are taking an important step to correct this mistake by introducing the ATF Improvement and Modernization Act."  
On the other side of the argument, pro-Second Amendment groups such as the Firearms Policy Coalition are sounding the alarm (https://www.firearmspolicy.org/atf_senate_bill) on the AIM Act, calling it "disturbing" as it would eliminate the long-held Tiahrt Amendment which protects firearms tracing data, eliminates expense caps for ATF missions, allows FFLs to have their licenses revoked or denied easier, targets the importation of shotguns as well as curios and relics, and-- perhaps most chilling-- would allow the ATF to maintain a national centralized firearm database. 
In addition, the bill would allow federal regulators to keep NICS background check data, which is currently mandated to be deleted in 24 hours in the case of approved checks. Such a mandate on data retention has long been in place over concerns that Brady checks could lead to a national firearms registry. 
The AIM Act has been referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. While the current session of Congress is set to expire in January, both Van Hollen and Beyer will be returning to Capitol Hill in 2021, so it is likely to see rapid reintroduction next year.

Title: Gun Industry Warns: Beware A Backdoor Biden Gun Ban
Post by: DunkingDan on November 14, 2020, 02:51:21 PM
Firearms industry officials are warning that Joe Biden could still try to impose his plan to ban the possession, sale, and manufacture of modern sporting rifles if he assumes the presidency, even if the Democrat doesn’t have the votes in Congress to enact the centerpiece of his anti-gun agenda through legislation.
Mark Oliva, the director of public affairs for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joins me on today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co. to talk about the biggest concerns that the firearms industry has about a potential Biden/Harris administration, and he says that a backdoor gun ban is on the table. According to Oliva, members of the Biden transition team are already exploring options to place AR-15s and other modern sporting rifles under the National Firearms Act without legislation, instead using the regulatory power of the ATF to redefine the rifles themselves.

The NSSF’s primary message to its industry partners at the moment is “take Biden at his word (https://www.nssf.org/take-biden-on-his-word-with-gun-control/),” as the organization’s senior vice president and general counsel Larry Keane warned on Tuesday.
Quote
Biden made it crystal clear his thoughts on firearm manufacturers at the onset of the Democratic presidential primary race in July 2019.
“Our enemy is the gun manufacturers, not the NRA, the gun manufacturers,” Biden said (https://www.nssf.org/called-industry-enemy/).
Biden’s gun control plan (https://joebiden.com/gunsafety/) would criminalize private firearm sales, requiring every firearm transfer to be conducted through licensed firearm retailers. He’d also crack down on those retailers, using the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) as an anvil by which to crush businesses for even minor clerical errors (https://www.nssf.org/icymi-biden-harris-would-weaponize-atf-against-firearm-retailers/) in inspections. He argued for the same failed so-called mandatory “smart gun (http://www3.nssf.org/share/factsheets/PDF/SmartGunTechnology.pdf)” technology for which he led a task force in the Obama administration. It wasn’t ready for testing then and it’s still not ready today.
That was the beginning of the Biden gun control agenda. That’s now burgeoned to include every radical gun control wish list item. It starts at a national state-by-state licensing scheme and rationing gun rights to just one sale per month for every law-abiding American.
That’s not all. He’d destroy the firearm industry by pushing to repeal (https://www.nssf.org/icymi-biden-harris-wants-to-repeal-plcaa/) the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, exposing manufacturers to harassing lawsuits by activist lawyers that long to bankrupt manufacturers for political means and use the courts to advance an agenda that doesn’t survive legislative scrutiny.

The Dems seem to want "Europe" here, that is their model now.  It is possible to own a pistol in France, it's just uncommon and you have to "show cause".  Germany has a lot of long guns because they like hunting and shooting clubs.  GB may have the most restrictive gun laws.

Nearly 40 Virginians have had their firearms seized — some permanently — after the state instituted a red flag law on July 1, according to a report.

Virginia judges issued 26 temporary and 10 permanent orders in July and August, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The red flag law allows police to confiscate a person’s legally-owned firearms for a two-week period if the gun owner is deemed a threat.

President-elect Joe Biden’s (https://www.foxnews.com/category/person/joe-biden) incoming White House deputy chief of staff once touted "mandatory buybacks" of certain rifles 


Jennifer O’Malley Dillon previously served as Biden’s campaign manager – but before that, she managed Beto O’Rourke's 2020 campaign until he withdrew from the race.

The former Texas congressman declared (https://www.foxnews.com/politics/orourke-hell-yes-were-going-to-take-your-ar-15) during a Sept. 2019 primary debate: "Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47."


A few weeks later, O’Malley Dillon appeared in a video, posted on O’Rourke’s YouTube channel, touting the campaign's plan for "mandatory" buybacks of certain firearms, in addition to a new ban on assault-style weapons.

"We are actually the only campaign with a plan…that supports mandatory buybacks of weapons of war,” she says in the video. "An assault weapon ban is very, very important, and we need to have it. But that only takes weapons of war off the streets in the future. It does nothing for weapons of war that are currently out there."
She estimated the mandatory buyback would affect "15 or 16 million" guns.

Title: MAGAZINES: STANDARD CAPACITY V LARGE CAPACITY
Post by: DunkingDan on November 20, 2020, 05:13:53 PM
Firearm magazines (https://www.guns.com/magazines/all?author=eger) have been around for centuries in one form or another and there is a lot of odd terminologies used today when referencing them. With that, we are here to clear the air with a little Gun 101. 
IS A CLIP A MAGAZINE? 
 
If you enjoy arguing with folks on social media, on gun ranges, or while at the gun store, puff out your chest and make a stand on the hill of confusing a clip and a magazine. In general, the term "clip" is used today to describe a separate container, typically of light metal, without a spring that holds cartridges in sequence so that they may be loaded or charged into a firearm. 
(https://images.guns.com/prod/2020/11/18/5fb4ea58735b5c8ec75059c3154d481fbb8e1e1803b2c.jpg)



These 30.06 Springfield cartridges are loaded in M1 Garand en-bloc clips. The Garand takes an 8-cartridge clip to be fully loaded. Once the rifle has fired all eight shots, the clip is ejected by the action. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)

The terms "clip" and "magazine" were often interchangeable in the past, such as in the 1940-dated U.S. Army FM.23-35 on the M1911 and this 1969 Colt ad, but today, the terms are kept apart under threat of smack talk from modern gun culture adherents. 


A magazine, which holds cartridges under tension from a spring for the firearm until they are fed into the chamber by the action, can be fixed or detachable. For instance, the Winchester Model 70 (https://www.guns.com/search?keyword=winchester 70), in its traditional format, uses a fixed magazine. On the other hand, an AR-15 has a detachable box or drum-style magazine. Magazines can also come in various forms including tubular, such as on a traditional Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun (https://www.guns.com/search?keyword=mossberg 500) or Marlin Model 60 rimfire rifle (https://www.guns.com/search?keyword=marlin 60); rotary such as those found on a Ruger 10/22 (https://www.guns.com/search?keyword=Ruger 10%2F22); or helical like the Calico series of guns (https://www.guns.com/firearms/handguns/semi-auto/calico-m-950-9-mm-semi-auto-50-1-rounds-6-barrel-not-specified-blued-new?p=82135).
And to throw a monkey wrench into this, magazines-- both fixed and detachable-- can be topped off or "charged" by a stripper clip.

STANDARD CAPACITY? 
 
When it comes to magazine capacity, be it on a fixed or detachable type, the size the firearm is designed for and marketed with is typically regarded in the gun industry as the "standard" capacity. For instance, the standard capacity for the Browning Hi-Power (https://www.guns.com/search?keyword=browning hi power), one of the most popular semi-automatic handguns, first patented in 1923, is 13 rounds. 

(https://i.imgur.com/7mKcKbv.png)


The BHP, which has been around in for nearly a century and is still production overseas in a host of clones, was designed with a standard 13+1 magazine capacity. This had been boosted in recent years by improved-designed mags that hold 14 or 15 rounds without extending from the bottom of the grip.  (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)

When the AR-15 first hit the market in the early 1960s, it used 20-round detachable magazines although 30-round magazines were soon the standard. The Glock 17 (https://www.guns.com/search?keyword=glock 17), first introduced in the U.S. in 1984, was marketed from the beginning with a 17-round flush-fit magazine. The FN FiveSeven pistol (https://www.guns.com/search?keyword=five-seven), developed in the early 1990s, has always been marketed with a 20-round magazine. 
(https://i.imgur.com/E7AGEQl.png)
The M1911 magazine on the left, standard since 1911, holds seven or eight rounds as designed. The standard magazine for the Glock 19X which ships from the factory, holds 21 rounds. 



Such capacity goes back even further than the 1920s. As we have noted in the past (https://www.guns.com/news/2018/03/06/this-repeater-predates-the-constitution-and-its-not-the-only-one-that-did-videos), there were a variety of early repeaters that existed even prior to the Second Amendment's enshrinement in the U.S. Constitution. These included the 16th Century Kalthoff rifles which could hold as many as 30 shots, the famed Puckle Gun of 1718, and the 12-shot Cookson Volitional repeating flintlock of the 1750s.

Going even further back, organ guns (Orgelgeschütz) or salvo guns (Salvengeschütz) were fielded in Germany in the 15th Century allowing a single user to envelope a battlefield in a cloud of black powder smoke in seconds (https://www.guns.com/news/2018/07/11/playing-the-organ-gun-for-those-moments-when-you-want-to-whistle-up-a-cloud-video).

LARGE CAPACITY MAGAZINES?

 

So-called "Large Capacity" or "High Capacity" magazines are terms often purposely and wrongly applied by anti-gun groups during conversations on gun politics to mislabel standard capacity magazines. The use of these terms is typically done when attempting to regulate or otherwise ban the production or possession of otherwise ordinary magazines by applying an arbitrary number of rounds they can contain. 

For instance, in 2013, the proposed New York SAFE Act included a 7-shot cap on loaded magazines and a 10-round limit on the magazine itself, meaning that gun owners had to download even 10-round magazines. While a federal judge later blasted the 7-shot arbitrary cap, (https://www.guns.com/news/2014/01/02/federal-judge-rules-safe-act-seven-round-magazine-limit-tenuous-strained-unsupported-video) the 10-round limit remains in the Empire State. However, limits as low as a 5-round cap (https://www.guns.com/news/2019/01/14/oregon-bill-would-cap-magazines-to-5-rds-ration-ammo-to-20-rds-month) have been floated in other states (https://www.guns.com/news/2020/01/09/gun-group-warns-state-lawmakers-considering-5-round-mag-limit).
(https://i.imgur.com/wtDthDc.png)
A 10-round AR magazine vs a 30-round AR magazine. In most parts of 41 states, the one on the right is standard capacity. In the rest of the country, lawful gun owners with local- or state-mandated magazine restrictions have to make do with the mag on the left and can face fines or prison if found with a standard capacity mag.



Today nine states have active capacity-based magazine bans: California (10 rounds), Colorado (15), Connecticut (10), Hawaii (10), Maryland (10), Massachusetts (10), New York (10), New Jersey (10), and Vermont (10 for rifles, 15 rounds for handguns). Further, there are over a dozen cities and counties as well as Washington, DC that have their own local limits. Such limits have been the subject of legal challenges by gun owners and Second Amendment groups almost since their inception, arguing that they are unconstitutional. (https://www.guns.com/news/federal-court-california-mag-ban-unconstitutional)

Despite the bans, firearm industry trade groups estimate there are upwards of 150 million such magazines (https://www.guns.com/news/2020/11/17/data-us-has-434-million-guns-20m-ars-150m-mags)-- including 71.2 million pistol magazines capable of holding more than 10 cartridges, and another 79.2 million rifle magazines capable of holding 30 or more rounds-- in ready circulation.
With proper maintenance, such devices can last generations.  (https://www.guns.com/news/2020/07/20/how-to-clean-ar-15-magazines-a-quick-and-easy-guide)

Title: 11 Defensive Uses of Guns That Reveal Ignorance of Biden, Harris on
Post by: DunkingDan on November 20, 2020, 05:41:42 PM
 Second Amendment

While votes still are being counted in the presidential election, one thing is perfectly clear—the stakes never have been higher for the Second Amendment.
Neither Democratic nominee Joe Biden nor his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, believe that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. In other words, according to them, the government may restrict law-abiding citizens’ ability to possess any firearm, and for any reason.

This is exactly what Harris argued in an amicus brief (https://reason.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/DCvHellerHarrisBrief.pdf) she signed onto in the foundational Second Amendment case of District of Columbia v. Heller (https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/07pdf/07-290.pdf). The filing with the Supreme Court argued that the Second Amendment does not prevent the government from issuing a complete ban on the possession of operable handguns inside the home.

It is hardly surprising, then, that as a senator Harris co-sponsored numerous bills (https://www.feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/press-releases?ID=EFC76859-879D-4038-97DD-C577212ED17B) that would strip law-abiding Americans of commonly owned semiautomatic firearms protected by the Second Amendment. She also recently said that mandatory buybacks—gun confiscation by another name (https://www.heritage.org/firearms/commentary/dont-count-american-compliance-gun-confiscation)—were a “good idea (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/sep/17/kamala-harris-gun-buybacks-are-a-good-idea/).”

The left is actively working to undermine the integrity of our elections. Read the plan to stop them now. Learn more now >> (https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/11/16/11-defensive-uses-of-guns-that-reveal-ignorance-of-biden-harris-on-second-amendment/?fbclid=IwAR263om_PnJ-uLh5ABaTKRIJuW9qgztlqyA91pl9e-IwuHsKlyx_2aofawo#dear_reader)

Harris is not alone. Just last year, Biden himself told a town hall audience (https://www.gloucestercitynews.net/clearysnotebook/2020/09/biden-tells-voters-the-second-amendment-does-not-protect-an-indiviudal-right.html) that he wouldn’t have come to the same conclusion as the Supreme Court majority in the Heller case.

Of course, the Supreme Court has affirmed—consistent with the first 150 years of constitutional scholarship (https://digitalcommons.law.byu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2825&context=lawreview) on the issue—that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental, individual right. Not only is this right fundamental to our scheme of ordered liberty in a theoretical sense, but in a real and concrete way it enables countless Americans to defend their lives, liberty, and property when the government fails to do so.

According to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost every major study on the issue has found that Americans use their firearms in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times (https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/cdc-study-use-firearms-self-defense-important-crime-deterrent) a year. There’s good reason to believe that most of these defensive gun uses never are reported to police, much less make the local or national news. 

For this reason, The Daily Signal each month publishes an article highlighting some of the previous month’s many news stories on defensive gun use that you may have missed—or that might not have made it to the national spotlight in the first place. (Read accounts from 2019 and so far in 2020 here (https://www.dailysignal.com/author/amy-swearer/).) 

The examples below represent only a small portion of the news stories on defensive gun use that we found in October. You may explore more examples by using The Heritage Foundation’s interactive Defensive Gun Use Database (https://www.heritage.org/data-visualizations/firearms/defensive-gun-uses-in-the-us/?_ga=2.220366554.35059545.1602602631-1883045864.1599833487).












These examples of defensive gun use last month help demonstrate just how badly the Biden-Harris team misses the mark when it comes to the Second Amendment.

The right to keep and bear arms often becomes a matter of life and death for law-abiding Americans.

We are rendered less safe—and our rights less secure—when politicians make it harder for us to acquire and possess the firearms with which we can most capably defend our rights and liberties.

Unlike Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the rest of us don’t get full-time armed security teams courtesy of American taxpayers. Many times, we don’t even have the benefit of police who arrive in time to protect us.
We only have ourselves, and our right to keep and bear arms.

Title: NSSF RELEASES MOST RECENT FIREARM PRODUCTION FIGURES
Post by: DunkingDan on November 22, 2020, 04:48:24 PM
NEWTOWN, Conn. — NSSF®, the firearm industry’s trade association, released the 2020 edition of its Firearm Production Report to members. The report compiles the most up to date information based on data sourced from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF’s) Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Reports (AFMER) as well as the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). Key findings for public release showed:
 
“These figures, combined with the record-breaking 17.2 million NSSF-adjusted background checks for the sale or transfer of a firearm in the first ten months of 2020, demonstrates that Americans have a strong desire to continue purchasing firearms for lawful purposes,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF’s President and CEO. “The Modern Sporting Rifle continues to be the most popular rifle sold in America today, and with nearly 20 million in circulation, is clearly a commonly-owned firearm that is being used for lawful purposes every day in America. The continued popularity of handguns demonstrates a strong interest by Americans to protect themselves, their family and homes, as well as to participate in the recreational shooting sports.”
Today’s report also shows that as lawful firearm ownership in America continues to grow, criminal and unintentional misuse of firearms is falling. During the 28-year period covered by this report (1991–2018) the violent crime rate has decreased by 51.3 percent and unintentional firearm-related fatalities have declined by 68.2 percent.

Title: Gun Industry Knows Being ‘Listed’ Isn’t Healing or Unifying
Post by: DunkingDan on November 22, 2020, 04:49:54 PM
Forgive the firearm industry if we seem jaded. We’re just not buying the calls for unity and healing. Not when our industry has been called “the enemy” and not when far-left firebrands are calling to create “lists” of Americans who dare to disagree.

It’s like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is the Grinch Who Stole Freedom. She’s making a list and checking it twice. She's going to tell America if you didn’t vote nice.

Forgive us. We’re not buying it. The firearm industry, and gun owners in general, are leery of being put on “enemies” lists. Or terror watch lists. Or gun registries. We know these things are ripe for abuse for radical ideas like rehabilitation, re-education, indoctrination, or confiscation.

It’s un-American. Period. It’s also telling that while Joe Biden is calling for the keys to the White House and telling Americans he’ll heal and unite the nation, he’s not disavowing the overt threat by a member of Congress that those who disagree with a radical agenda will be listed. He’s also not walked back his accusation in 2019 that the firearm industry is “the enemy,” and his threat to come after us.

Herring tweeted: “BREAKING: I have successfully BLOCKED a massive gun show from operating at full capacity this weekend in NOVA. Putting hundreds or even thousands of Virginians at risk for the sole purpose of selling guns is just not worth it and I’m pleased that the Judge agreed with me.”
Only hours prior to the decision by the judge to block The Nation’s Gun Show from holding its event, The Nation’s Gun Show claimed (https://www.thenationsgunshow.com/nation-s-gun-show-news.html) that Herring had said the show would be a super spreader and the producers had a blatant disregard for the Covid virus. They continued:

Title: Biden Could Force Gun Control Past A GOP Senate, The Trace Suggests
Post by: DunkingDan on November 23, 2020, 04:18:40 PM

Having declared premature election victory, Joe Biden is facing a humongous task of enforcing gun control past a Republican-dominated Senate. The Democratic presidential candidate is afraid that GOP Senators would vote his gun control proposals into oblivion should he become POTUS.


Even if the leftist party clinched the remaining seats and gained a simple Senate majority, the filibuster would prevent any gun control laws from passing. Additionally, the "centrist" Democratic Senator Joe Manchin could vote unfavorably towards gun control. Consequently, The Trace (https://www.thetrace.org/2020/11/joe-biden-gun-policy-gop-senate-more-than-executive-action/) enumerated various actions that Biden could take to pass gun control.
The creation of an inter-agency task force.
The Trace suggests that Biden could "sign an executive order creating an interagency task force on gun violence prevention." However, we know that the panel would be a proxy to sneak implicit gun control into public policy using "gun violence prevention" as an excuse.
Making ATF political appointments.
The Trace suggests that Biden could reinvigorate the ATF through "political appointments and personnel choices." Quoting the Center for American Progress president for gun violence prevention Chelsea Parsons, the author suggests that Biden should appoint a pro-gun control director.
This is hardly a new concept, given that current and previous ATF administrators are reported to hold anti-gun attitudes. ATF leadership, including Acting Director Regina Lombardo, a non-Trump pick, and Associate Deputy Director Marvin Richardson, are bureaucrats who are less passionate about people's constitutional rights.
Reclassification of firearms by the ATF.
The Trace suggests that Biden could use the ATF to reclassify firearms and subject more guns to NFA regulations.
"Under new leadership, the agency could review its previous determinations and reclassify firearms and components teetering on the line of being considered an NFA weapon."
Recently, the ATF transferred Q LLC. "Honey Badger" Pistol and SB Tactical's pistol braces to the NFA. This classification was just a preparation for a more anti-gun ATF under the anticipated Biden administration.


Data collection and research.


The Trace recommended creating a "reliable nationwide database of crime statistics" and directing "agencies to more efficiently collect and publish data." The author also suggests more resources directed to "gun violence research."
Such research committees concoct political propaganda and try to pass it as science. Additionally, the administration would try to infringe on gun owners' privacy rights through more invasive gun control data collection.
Cracking down on "ghost guns."
Biden is also advised to regulate the DIY blueprints and tools for making 3D printed firearms and other home-made weapons.
"While it might be difficult to ban or prohibit ghost guns through executive action alone, there are proposals on how the ATF could use its rulemaking authority to regulate the parts needed to assemble home-made weapons."
Another suggestion is to require serial numbers to be imprinted on home-made firearms like they do in California.
Banning the importation of "assault weapons."
Although an outright ban on "assault weapons" would be difficult for a Biden administration, he could reduce access to firearms by controlling the importation of certain weapons. With the reclassification of various commonly-used firearms, an importation ban could affect more weapons.
Currently, the Gun Control Act bans the importation of most firearms, except those considered to be readily suitable or adaptable for sporting purposes. Biden could ensure more firearms fail to pass the "sporting" category hence prohibiting them from importation. 
Rallying gun control in the Senate.
Biden is also advised to try passing gun control through a GOP-dominated Senate. He could try holding bipartisan negotiations on gun control as Nancy Pelosi did.
Some Republican Senators such as Pat Toomey have a history of sponsoring gun control bills and would vote for such measures.
Pressure and blackmail from the Democrat-controlled House could also force other Republican Senators to jump ship and support gun control.
"With pressure from the House… and with President Biden not only supporting that legislation but taking action in his own right through the executive action process and federal rulemaking, I think it just kind of compounds the message that Senate Republicans can't get off the hook," the Trace quoted Giffords director of federal affairsAdzi Vokhiwa.

Title: Federal Judge Fast-Tracks Preliminary Injunction Hearing in FPC
Post by: DunkingDan on November 24, 2020, 03:23:03 PM
Lawsuit Challenging Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Handgun Carry Ban


PHILADELPHIA (November 23, 2020) — Today, Eastern District of Pennsylvania Federal District Court Judge Michael M. Baylson has set an expedited hearing track for FPC’s motion for preliminary injunction, filed earlier today in Fetsurka v. Outlaw, a case challenging the ban on handgun carry imposed by the laws and policies of Defendants City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, its Police Commissioner, Danielle Outlaw, and Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Colonel Robert Evanchick. The case and motion can be found at firearmspolicy.org/philadelphia.


In the order, Judge Baylson said that the “individual plaintiffs have long been seeking a gun permit and may be entitled to a permit and are undoubtedly frustrated by the delays. . . . [T]he Court will proceed with the Motion for Preliminary Injunction. Defendants must give some weight to Plaintiffs’ constitutional rights under the 2nd amendment.”



“The Court will receive testimony at a hearing to be held by video conference on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.,” the order concluded.



“We are encouraged that Judge Baylson has set an expedited preliminary injunction schedule and issued an order acknowledging our clients’ and members’ Second Amendment right to bear arms in public for self-defense,” said FPC Director of Legal Strategy Adam Kraut. “We will continue to quickly move this case towards a judgment on the merits and work to protect the right to keep and bear arms.”


Recently, Firearms Policy Coalition has filed several major federal Second Amendment lawsuits, including challenges to Pennsylvania’s ban on carry by adults under 21 years of age (Lara v. Evanchick), California’s Handgun Ban and “Roster” laws (Renna v. Becerra), Maryland’s carry ban (Call v. Jones), New Jersey’s carry ban (Bennett v. Davis), New York City’s carry ban (Greco v. New York City), the federal ban on the sale of handguns and handgun ammunition by federal firearm licensees (FFLs) to adults under 21 years of age (Reese v. BATFE), and others, with many more cases being prepared today. To follow these and other legal cases FPC is actively working on, visit the Legal Action section of FPC’s website or follow FPC on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube.

Post by: DunkingDan on November 25, 2020, 11:26:49 AM
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has temporarily backed off criminalizing a type of gun (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/secret-atf-move-could-turn-3m-to-4m-gun-owners-into-felons) used by 3-4 million Americans until after the presidential election, likely stoking the issue of gun control.
The New Hampshire maker of a popular-styled AR-15 “pistol” today said that ATF suspended its surprise decision made last week to outlaw the gun, called the “Honey Badger” pistol.

Q, LLC told customers, “our attorneys received a letter from ATF Chief Counsel Joel Roessner ‘temporarily suspending the Cease and Desist letter’ associated with the Honey Badger Pistol by Q. The letter states that the suspension, will remain in effect for a period of sixty (60) days . . . unless withdrawn or extended by ATF.’ The stated purpose of the suspension is to allow the Department of Justice an opportunity, ‘to further review the applicability of the National Firearms Act to the manufacture and transfer of the model ‘Honey Badger Pistol’ firearm.’”

Title: Fresh Out Of Talking Points: Gun Rush 2020 Continues After Election —
Post by: DunkingDan on November 25, 2020, 11:29:03 AM
The Left Can’t Figure Out How To Convince People They Don’t Need Guns


The announcement by the media last week that Joe Biden had won the presidency might have put leftists at east, but it certainly did the opposite for gun owners.

That’s why the days after the election saw another rush on guns and ammo purchases.  We reported how a gun store in Indiana sold 80,000 rounds in thirty minutes on election day.  (https://www.secondamendmentdaily.com/2020/11/indiana-gun-store-gets-80000-rounds-on-election-day-sells-out-in-justt-30-minutes/)
From all accounts, gun sales have continue to soar in the six days since the election on November 3rd.

Ideologically Bankrupt

The anti-gun left is fresh out of talking points.  After all, all their tried and true arguments have become a joke!

“Who needs a gun, just call the police?”  That’s so 2018.

“Only angry old white racists own guns.”  Gun sales to Black Americans are up 58% in 2020! (https://www.secondamendmentdaily.com/2020/07/gun-sales-up-95-ammo-sales-up-139-sales-to-black-americans-up-58/)

“We need more gun control!” Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago has single-handedly curb stomped that idea to death.

“Guns aren’t necessary in a safe place like America!”  Tell that to the innocent citizens who have to put up with rioting, burning and looting with the approval of the left!

So what do they do now?  A leftist reporter in Austin, TX bemoaned (https://www.kxan.com/news/consumer/2020-sets-all-time-record-for-fbi-firearm-background-checks-amid-election-pandemic/) the rise of gun purchases after the election.

Check out his comments:

Quote
“You have a lot of people who are desperate to feel better, desperate to feel safe in some way,” [Texas Gun Sense] Board President Ed Scruggs said. “So they are reaching out for a firearm. There’s no evidence, first of all, that that’s going to work. I think it’s indicative of the level of anxiousness out there.”
Scruggs said his organization hopes people considering a firearm purchase ask themselves a few key questions.
“Why am I buying this? Am I buying this because it makes me feel better right now, or because I really have a use for it?” he said. “Do you know how to handle it? Can you handle the responsibility to keep it safely stored all the time?”
He went on, “It’s not just something to do haphazardly.”

Nothing To Bring To The Table

Do you see that garbage?

The radical left can’t keep American citizens safe — because  they don’t even want to!   Marxism teaches that social unrest and instability are good th because they help topple the status quo and will usher in a new era of leftist ideas.  They want the chaos Americans have watched tearing apart their cities all summer!

The anti-gun crowd can’t keep people safe, they’ve destroyed their own arguments against gun control and now the only thing they have left: social shaming.

‘You ought to be ashamed for wanting to defend yourself and your family from violent, destructive rioters!  You ought to stop being worried about the food supply!  Are you sure you can handle the responsibility of owning a gun?!  Do you even know what you’re doing?!’

Comments akin to crazy Aunt Susan, shaming everybody at Thanksgiving Dinner who isn’t as miserable, afraid, and helpless as she has made herself.

The left is out of ideas.  Bankrupt.  Kaput.

Unfortunately, the right is not far behind.  For decades they’ve compromised with the left, made friends and made deals, and carried water for the media.

They played along with the left, pretending that the reality the leftist media projected was anything but a flimsy lie.
Gun owners, gun organizations, and gun legislators need to wake up and put the FIGHT back in gun politics.  It’s going to be a knock down, drag out brawl.

Title: Second Amendment Under Threat After New Third Circuit Decision
Post by: DunkingDan on November 26, 2020, 03:33:50 PM
The Third Circuit has issued an opinion (https://www2.ca3.uscourts.gov/opinarch/191687p.pdf) that has received little attention over the right to bear arms, but it should. The decision in Folajtar v. The Attorney General of the United States may be one of the most perfectly tailored case for major Supreme Court decision. Indeed, the only thing lacking from the 2-1 decision is a mailing label directly to Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
In ruling that a non-violent tax conviction can result in the denial of gun ownership, the panel presents a clean case to further define the contours of the individual rights recognized in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008).
(https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/download)
The Third Circuit case concerns Lisa Folajtar who was denied the right to own a firearm. The reason was her pleading guilty in 2011 to willfully making a materially false statement on her tax returns. The plea led to a sentence of three-years’ probation, including three months of home confinement, a $10,000 fine, and a $100 assessment. She also paid the IRS over $250,000 in back taxes, penalties, and interest.
The case falls into the still grey area around the individual right articulated in 2008. The Supreme Court  recognized that this is not an “unlimited” right under the Constitution while affirming the right of “law-abiding, responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home.” Id. at 635. Moreover, the Court ruled two years later that Heller “did not cast doubt on such longstanding regulatory measures as ‘prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons.’” McDonald v. City of Chicago, 561 U.S. 742, 786 (2010) (quoting Heller, 554 U.S. at 626–27).
The question is whether this means any and all felons, even those never accused of violent acts.  The law at issue is 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1). Originally, in 1938, the Congress prohibited only gun ownership to those who were convicted of “crimes of violence.” See Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, Pub. L. No. 90-351, tit. IV, § 925, 82 Stat. 197, 233–34; id. at tit. VII § 1202, 82 Stat. at 236 (codified at 28 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1)). That limited the denial of gun ownership to those convicted of murder, manslaughter, rape, mayhem, kidnapping, burglary, housebreaking and various types of aggravated assault. See Federal Firearms Act, ch. 850, § 1(6), 52 Stat. 1250, 1250 (1938).
That changed in the 1960s when Congress expanded the bar on gun ownership. That however was long before the Heller decision recognized gun ownership as an individual constitutional right.
Judge Thomas Ambro wrote the majority opinion with the support of Judge Cheryl Ann Krause.  Judge Stephanos Bibas dissented. Ambro was appointed by President Bill Clinton and Krause by President Barack Obama.  Bibas was appointed by President Donald Trump.
The majority viewed this determination as appropriately within the discretion of Congress and notes that other core rights can be lost by a felony conviction:

Post by: DunkingDan on November 27, 2020, 04:21:41 PM
Despite Michael Bloomberg spending over $1M  (https://gunownersofamerica.cmail20.com/t/i-i-mydihtk-l-t/)to flip the Pennsylvania General Assembly, gun owners sent anti-gun challengers packing and scored a few wins along the way.
While the Presidential race hangs in the balance, here are how things shaped up in the Keystone State.
Although all of the results are not in for some races, we are thrilled to see the following GOA-endorsed candidates winning their elections! Please help us congratulate these pro-gun champions:

In addition to the above endorsed candidates, GOA A-rated challenger Devlin Robinson (https://gunownersofamerica.cmail20.com/t/i-i-mydihtk-l-k/) defeated anti-gun incumbent Pam Iovino in SD 37.
PA House

Make no mistake about it, this is a victory against Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agenda. In fact, here is what Stuart Varney of Fox News had to say about it:

I think that Michael Bloomberg has lost. He spent a billion on trying to get elected, 100 million trying to get Florida to go for Biden. He’s lost it all and he’s got nothing to show for it.” (Stuart Varney on Fox News, 11/4/20)
And it’s because of you that Bloomberg left Pennsylvania empty-handed.
As we enter the 2021-2022 legislative session, Pennsylvania gun owners will have strong allies in the General Assembly.
GOA will be working with these allies to get pro-gun legislation re-introduced, including bills for:
And, of course, we’ll monitor anti-gun legislation to ensure that such things like Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders, gun bans, magazine restrictions, universal background checks, and other bills to restrict your rights are defeated.

Title: Three dozen orders issued with Virginia’s new “red flag” gun law
Post by: DunkingDan on November 27, 2020, 04:41:36 PM
At least three dozen Virginia residents have been prohibited temporarily or permanently from having firearms or purchasing them based on a new state law letting courts decide they would be a danger to themselves or others.
The “red flag” law creating the petition for substantial risk orders began July 1.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch cited the Virginia State Police in reporting 26 temporary and 10 permanent orders were issued in July and August.
The Democratic-controlled General Assembly passed another gun-related restriction this year. Republicans voted against it.
Gun rights groups argue the law violates the Second Amendment.

Title: Respect For The Second Amendment Should Not Be Partisan
Post by: DunkingDan on November 29, 2020, 06:26:13 PM
Before the U.S. Supreme Court recognized that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms in District of Columbia v. Heller, a February 2008 Gallup poll found that 73 percent of Americans possessed this understanding of the Constitution while a mere 20 percent had the incorrect collective-right interpretation. This wide-ranging respect for the Second Amendment holds. According to a November 2019 Rasmussen poll, a mere 24 percent support repealing the Second Amendment.
With a broad bipartisan majority in favor of preserving the Second Amendment, support for the right to keep and bear arms need not break down along party lines. However, the leaders and donor class of the national Democratic Party are intent on making it that way.
Consider the Draft 2020 Democratic Party Platform. The document contains a gun-control plank that is replete with many of the worst gun controls put forward by the party’s most anti-gun politicians. 
The platform declares that the party will criminalize the private transfer of firearms by requiring every firearm transaction to take place pursuant to a government background check. The platform expresses support for the elimination of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System’s three-day safety-valve provision, which permits a firearm transfer to proceed three days after a NICS check has been initiated if the FBI has not determined the transferee to be prohibited from possessing firearms. This vital provision ensures that the federal government cannot delay lawful gun transfers indefinitely and ensures that firearms transfers can take place even if the NICS system is overwhelmed. Further, the platform calls for gun owner licensing.
Taken together, these measures would undo the Second Amendment right by turning it into a privilege bestowed by government—something on which no one attempting to exercise a Constitutional right should be forced to rely.
Then there are the even more flagrant violations. Chief among these is a ban on the manufacture and sale of commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and their magazines. In Heller, the Court made clear that the Second Amendment protects ownership of firearms “in common use at the time” for “lawful purposes like self-defense.” The principal target of such bans is the AR-15. As the AR-15 is the most popular rifle in America and owned almost entirely by law-abiding Americans, it is indisputably “in common use” for “lawful purposes.” Heller author Justice Antonin Scalia and Justice Clarence Thomas reiterated as much in a 2015 dissent from denial of certiorari in the case Friedman v. Highland Park.
While the 2020 Democratic Party draft platform is even more hostile to the Second Amendment than in 2016, this wasn’t always the case. Absent is any recognition of the Second Amendment, a conspicuous omission given the language in previous iterations.
2012: We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans’ Second Amendment right to own and use firearms.
2008: We recognize that the right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition,
and we will preserve Americans’ Second Amendment right to own and use firearms.

Lip service, perhaps, but there have also been practical changes in the party’s conduct. As Second Amendment attorney and scholar David Kopel pointed out in 2010, 81 House Democrats and 19 Senate Democrats signed onto an amicus brief filed in the U.S. Supreme Court case McDonald v. Chicago supporting incorporation of the individual-rights interpretation of the Second Amendment to the states.
The national Democratic Party’s relatively recent near-uniform contempt for the Second Amendment coincided with billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s decision to employ his almost unlimited wealth in service of dismantling gun rights. After pledging $50 million to confront the NRA in 2013, the former New York City mayor has spent untold millions in federal and state elections to shift the Democratic Party to a radical anti-gun position.
Nevertheless, there is a limit to what money can buy. This year Bloomberg attempted to purchase the Democratic Party outright, seeking its nomination for president. According to ABC News, the would-be oligarch spent more than $1 billion on the venture, only to win American Samoa’s primary. Talk about a bad investment.
In the end, votes are what count. While the current national Democratic Party is being driven by its anti-gun donor class, the party’s servitude need not last forever. Support for the Second Amendment has been, and should be, bipartisan. The way to make this clear to the national Democratic Party and Michael Bloomberg is through the ballot box.


Title: The Truth About The Distinction Between Military and Civilian Firearms
Post by: DunkingDan on December 01, 2020, 03:32:16 PM
It’s a common trope of American political discourse: a politician will emphatically declare his respect for the Second Amendment (https://joebiden.com/gunsafety/#). He will deny that he’s “coming for your guns (https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/10/joe-biden-told-an-auto-worker-youre-full-of-shit-during-a-tense-argument-over-guns.html).” After all, he knows that gun-grabbing is unpalatable to many Americans. (https://news.gallup.com/poll/325004/support-stricter-gun-laws-lowest-level-2016.aspx)
But, in his very next breath, he’ll backpedal a bit — surely, civilians don’t need  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOpj-BEPnSg&feature=emb_title)and ought not possess “military” firearms, those notorious “weapons of war.” And…well, yes (https://nypost.com/2020/03/03/joe-biden-promises-to-put-beto-orourke-in-charge-of-gun-control/), he will come for those (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vEnTjs2RV0) guns.
Clearly, the politician believes that there is a real, categorical distinction between military and civilian firearms. Many American voters do, too. Moreover, they think this distinction somehow matters.

There are two problems with that perspective.




First, in all of American history, there has never been any substantial distinction between military and civilian firearms. Rather, there has always been tremendous overlap of guns used by the military and guns used by civilians.

Civilian weapons are routinely adopted by the military and vice-versa. Firearm features and characteristics are neither intrinsically “military” nor “civilian.” Consider the iconic photograph of Malcolm X with his M1 carbine (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_X#/media/File:Malcolmxm1carbine3gr.gif) — is that a military firearm or a civilian firearm? Obviously, it’s both, and many of the same characteristics that made the carbine militarily useful also made it useful to civilians.

Second, of course an artificial distinction can be constructed by legislatively defining certain weapons or particular features/characteristics as “military.” That’s what “assault weapons” bans and similar laws attempt to do.
But such a constructed distinction ought not matter anyway: American civilians have a right to own military arms. Existing and proposed laws to the contrary are blatantly unconstitutional — the Second Amendment isn’t about duck hunting or target shooting. (https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/the-right-to-bear-which-arms-2a-interpretation-and-the-federalist-papers/)
Please keep both points in mind whenever you hear a politician speak of this distinction as if it’s real or somehow meaningful. At best, it’s ignorant. At worst, it’s deliberate obfuscation or deception for the sake of political gain.

Title: 17 STATES TELL FEDERAL COURT THEY SUPPORT MAG BAN
Post by: DunkingDan on December 01, 2020, 03:53:29 PM
Attorneys General from Washington D.C. and 17 states have signed on to support California's endangered "no excuses" ban on standard capacity magazines  (https://www.guns.com/magazines/all)capable of holding 10 or more rounds. 
The arbitrary ban in the Golden State was torpedoed (https://www.guns.com/news/federal-court-california-mag-ban-unconstitutional) last month by a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit whose majority sided with pro-gun plaintiffs rather than the California Department of Justice, ruling the prohibition unconstitutional. While California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has filed further appeals in an effort to keep the ban afloat, like-minded anti-gun AGs from around the country are showing up to help bail legal water. 
"The Constitution allows states to implement reasonable gun safety laws to keep their residents safe," said Washington D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine, who is leading the effort. 'Restricting large-capacity magazines is a common-sense reform that California, the District of Columbia, and other states have adopted to reduce the number of injuries and deaths resulting from the gun violence that plagues our nation. Our coalition of state Attorneys General will continue to defend the right of states to make public safety decisions that protect our residents."
The friend-of-the-court brief (https://oag.dc.gov/sites/default/files/2020-09/Duncan-Petition-En-Banc.pdf) filed by Racine in support of the ban was joined by AGs from Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington. For those following along at home, only eight of those 17 states have enacted their own bans on the sale or ownership of "large-capacity" magazines. 
The 20-page amicus brief from Racine and his group of largely blue state AGs points out that five other circuits have taken up challenges to magazine prohibitions and concluded that the concept was lawful. Should the latest 9th Circuit ruling withstand Becerra's current attempt at rehearing by the Circuit-- which is increasingly staffed with judges nominated to the bench by President Trump-- the resulting split could easily set the stage for the Supreme Court to weigh in on the matter, which would have nationwide repercussions. 
It is estimated that no less than 115 million magazines capable of holding more than 10 cartridges are in circulation in the U.S., with that figure climbing every day.

GUN RIGHTS CASE IN YEARS


Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett could deliver a decisive vote in a case regarding gun ownership for non-violent felons if the case makes its way to the high court for review.
The Third Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a longstanding precedent on Nov. 24 that convicted felons are not permitted to possess firearms after Lisa M. Folajtar asked the court to decide whether Congress can prohibit individuals like herself who are convicted of tax fraud from legally owning a gun.
The appeals court ruled that they could find “no reason to deviate from this long standing prohibition in the context of tax fraud” and rejected her claim.

Title: Biden Declares Gun Violence a ‘National Health Crisis’
Post by: DunkingDan on December 16, 2020, 01:48:22 PM
Joe Biden released a statement Monday remembering the December 14, 2012, attack on Sandy Hook Elementary and declared gun violence a “national health crisis.”

He wrote, “To the grandparents, parents, siblings, children, spouses, and fellow broken and healing hearts of Sandy Hook, I know. No matter how long it’s been, every time you talk about it, you relive it as though you just heard the news. Eight years later, I know the pain never fully heals.”

Biden described December 14, 2012, as “the saddest day we had in the White House,” and praised Sandy Hook parents for “working to change our laws and our culture around gun violence and how we protect and nurture our children.”


He added:

I know it can feel like an impossible task. Since this December day eight years ago, your nightmare has been felt by thousands of other families in our country who have lost a piece of their soul in other schools, a shopping mall, a movie theatre, a club, a house of worship, in their neighborhoods, and in their homes. Some of these tragedies make national headlines, so many more do not. Every year, more than 30,000 people die from gun violence across America—a statistic we would associate with war in a far-off place. Countless more are left with a lifetime of injuries and trauma.

Biden then declared gun violence a “national health crisis” that must be confronted, stressing “thoughts and prayers…[are] not enough.”

Biden’s claim that over 30,000 people die from gun violence in the U.S. each year is a claim made by Hillary Clinton in 2016 and by Kamala Harris in 2019 during her unsuccessful bid for the Democrat presidential nomination.

Title: Walmart Poised To Turn Nearly 20% Of Their 4473 Records Over To The
Post by: DunkingDan on December 22, 2020, 02:57:26 PM
BATF, Creating A Searchable Database Of Gun Owners

News is spreading like wildfire that Walmart is on the brink of turning over the 4473 forms for 500 stores to the ATF.  The tip, released from a leaked conference call between the ATF and Walmart executives, sounds like a legitimate threat under current federal law.

Currently, a gun store must maintain the 4473 forms of customers who have purchased guns in their store in the event law enforcement have a warrant to see the details of a specific sale, etc.  When a gun store closes, the law requires that store to turn those 4473 forms over to another licensed FFL dealer rather than destroy them.


That’s what’s happening with Walmart after the chain has indicated that they will stop selling guns in 500 of their stores next year.  Those 500 stores represent nearly 20% of the 2,388 stores the chain has in America.
Walmart plans to turn over all of those 4473 forms to the ATF!

It Didn’t Have To Be This Way

By now it will come as no surprise to gun owners that Walmart is happy to stab gun owners in the back.  But in case anybody needs another example, the reader should keep in mind that while Walmart is obligated to turn over the records to a federal firearms dealer ‘successor’, nothing in the law says it must be the ATF.

Any other federal firearm licensed dealer would be acceptable according to the law.

That means that Walmart could have chosen to send the documents to any local gun stores near the 500 stores, but they appear to have chosen the ATF, instead.

A Defacto Database Was The Goal All Along

Gun writer John Crump reports (https://www.ammoland.com/2020/12/signs-suggest-walmart-turn-over-customers-4473-gun-records-atf/#axzz6hL2qj0Lj):

Quote
In recent years the ATF has started using high-speed scanners to catalog out of business FFL’s records into a searchable database using optical character recognition software (OCR).
Federal law prohibits the creation of a national gun registry. Yet, this appears to be what is happening, not only with Walmart’s records but all other out of business FFL records that are turned over at the close of business.

18 USC. Section 926(a)(3) (https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/926) states that:

Quote
No such rule or regulation prescribed after the date of the enactment of the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act may require that records required to be maintained under this chapter or any portion of the contents of such records, be recorded at or transferred to a facility owned, managed, or controlled by the United States or any State or any political subdivision thereof, nor that any system of registration of firearms, firearms owners, or firearms transactions or dispositions be established.

But by using this loophole — only creating a database out of the surrendered records of shuttered gun stores — the ATF is doing just that!

They are knowingly and purposefully creating a searchable, online database of gun owners!

Universal Background Checks Lead To Universal Database

The anti-gun left have trained their activists to ask questions like, “Why are you so opposed to universal background checks?  If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about!”

Another favorite leftist talking point is about private sales: “If there’s nothing shady going on, why do you care about private gun sales so much?  Those are just cover for criminals who couldn’t pass a background check!”

This case is the perfect example!  Because corporate America has attacked gun owner for years!  And now they’re in bed with Joe Biden and the ATF and they are determined to destroy our guns rights!

In 2021, gun owners are going to have to STAND TALL against universal background checks in every form, both at a State and Federal level.
As the heated political climate in America spills into the streets, the left is coming after our gun rights from all angles.

Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and other state Democratic lawmakers have appeared to slow their efforts to ban assault weapons in the state.
Virginia's Democrat-controlled Senate last January rejected Northam's bill to ban assault weapons, including some semiautomatic rifles, and voted to take up the matter again in a year.
Nearly one year later, Northam, whose term expires in 2022, told WRIC on Monday that he'll leave the decision to revisit a gun ban "up to the discretion of the legislature."

Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and other state Democratic lawmakers have appeared to slow their efforts to ban assault weapons in the state.

Virginia's Democrat-controlled Senate last January rejected Northam's bill to ban assault weapons, including some semiautomatic rifles, and voted to take up the matter again in a year.
Nearly one year later, Northam, whose term expires in 2022, told WRIC on Monday that he'll leave the decision to revisit a gun ban "up to the discretion of the legislature."




Starting on New Year's Day, Virginia will also require in-person training for concealed carry permits.
State Del. Mark Levine also told WRIC that he and other Virginia Democrats likely will not reintroduce an assault weapons ban in 2021, blaming a shortened legislative season that will be mostly virtual.
"Most of the session will be devoted to things that are less controversial. That doesn’t mean I’ve given up fighting for this cause," Levine told WRIC in a Tuesday interview. "The goal is to stop making it really easy to commit mass murder."
Two trends that have occurred in Virginia this year do not appear to correlate with the new gun laws: an uptick in gun violence in the state's biggest cities and record-high, legal gun sales.
Many U. S. cities dealt with surges in violent crime over the summer, despite lockdowns keeping people inside. Some Virginia police departments have also taken notice of... (Read more) (https://www.foxnews.com/politics/virginia-democrats-assault-weapon-ban-loses-momentum)



Title: Missouri Pro-Gun Champions File Bill Nullifying ALL Federal Gun Laws
Post by: DunkingDan on January 01, 2021, 04:47:46 PM
Representative Jered Taylor and Senator Eric Burlison refuse to take no for an answer when it comes to Missouri’s gun rights.  We reported last year when Taylor and Burlison respectively filed bills called the Second Amendment Preservation Act, a bill that would nullify all federal gun laws in the state of Missouri.
Sen. Eric Burlison (R-Battlefield) came back this year and filed Senate Bill 39 (SB39) on Dec.1st.  The same day, Rep. Jered Taylor filed House Bill 85 (HB85) in the House.

During the 2020 legislative session, the bills, collectively nicknamed SAPA, were storming through the legislature — with Taylor’s House bill getting nearly 90 cosponsors out of a total of 116 members!

But then Covid came to town and the legislative session was effectively cut off at the knees in April, stealing all the momentum and pressure that gun owners had brought on their legislators to pass the bill.

Once the pressure was off, Senate Committee Chairman Republican Doug Libla killed the bill in the Senate.

In the House, SAPA was left to die thanks in part to moderates Republicans who didn’t like the bill in the first place and, ultimately, the response to the Corona Scare.

Grassroots Gun Owners Are Changing The Gun Rights Landscape
Burlison and Taylor have been immune to pressure from moderate Republicans to sell out on gun rights in part because the two gun rights champions have worked hand-in-glove with the state’s largest and most powerful gun rights organization, the Missouri Firearms Coalition.

This organization is behind several key primary victories that we reported on earlier this fall.  From kicking out bad RINOs to helping real pro-gun candidates win, MOFC and her members and supporters really flexed their muscle on the political landscape in 2020.

Thanks to political protection from MOFC — and the fact that tens of thousands of gun owners in the state are kept up to day by the gun group — the two legislators were able to plow past any moderate Republicans who might have wanted to water down the bill.

Gun owners standing up for their gun rights — and supporting and protecting their legislative champions — is how to stop the anti-gun left in 2021!

The Best Bills In The Country
Just what do Burlison and Taylor’s bills consider to be a federal “infringement” on the Second Amendment?  Here is a partial list:

Any taxes and fees on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services that would have a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;
Any registration and tracking schemes applied to firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition that would have a chilling effect;
Any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens;
Any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens.

Of course, this "Top 10" countdown is just a list of pistols we've sold on Guns.com over the course of this wild year and is not based on industry-wide figures. Further, due to supply chain issues, it should be taken with at least a pinch of salt as some models were harder to keep in stock than others, which could account for several popular makes missing the cut.
Nonetheless, the break down is still interesting for sure.

Biden responded, saying: “Your perseverance and immeasurable courage continue to inspire me and millions of others. I pledge to continue to work with you—and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country—to defeat the NRA and end our epidemic of gun violence.”


Biden’s website says he has a plan to end “our gun violence epidemic” and boasts that he has taken on the NRA twice and won, referring to his help passing the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act in 1993 and in passing a 10-year ban on some weapons and magazines the following year.

“As president, Joe Biden will defeat the NRA again,” the site states.

Some of the proposals include banning the manufacture and sale of so-called assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, restricting the number of guns one person may buy per month to one, and prohibiting people convicted of hate crimes from owning guns.

Title: GUN-GRABBERS AT IT AGAIN IN FL WITH SEMI-AUTO GUN BAN
Post by: DunkingDan on January 12, 2021, 04:48:57 PM
They’re coming for your modern sporting firearms again.

State Senator Gary Farmer (D-District 34) has introduced SB 370 (https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2021/370), a bill to ban commonly-owned firearms in the state of Florida.

B 370 is modeled after the Clinton gun and magazine ban, but then adds several additional anti-gun provisions.

Predictably, SB 370 bans the sale of a lengthy list of semi-automatic firearms – guns that are mislabeled as “Assault Weapons.” It also bans the sale of similar firearms that have design features that Sen. Farmer finds objectionable such as pistol grips, threaded barrels, and folding and “telescoping stocks” – as well as, the parts to assemble semi-automatic firearms.
An anti-gun attorney general will surely interpret the ban on the sale of parts to mean that a person could not even keep spare parts on hand to repair a firearm that they already own.
SB 370 also bans the sale of certain defined semi-automatic handguns and includes broad, far reaching language which specifically includes .22 caliber rimfire weapons.
Finally, SB 370 labels magazines which hold more than 10 cartridges as a “Large Capacity Magazine” and bans those as well.

Title: SAPA Legislation EXPLODING In Missouri As Gun Owners Face Biden-Harris
Post by: DunkingDan on January 15, 2021, 05:20:33 PM
Administration’s Plans For Gun Control

Yesterday we reported on the rise of Second Amendment Preservation Act legislation as the best defense against federal gun control in 2021.  If you’re not sure what SAPA legislation is, you can click here (https://www.secondamendmentdaily.com/2021/01/second-amendment-protection-act-gun-owners-best-bet-against-federal-gun-control/) or keep reading.

We have reported in the past how Missouri’s gun owners — led by two 2A rock star legislators (https://www.secondamendmentdaily.com/2020/12/breaking-missouri-pro-gun-champions-file-bills-nullifying-all-federal-gun-laws-in-past-present-and-future-huge-momentum-last-year/) — are on the cutting edge of this fight.  We think there will be a tidal wave of  states filing SAPA legislation in just days or weeks!

In 2021, the threat of federal gun control is far more real and far more immanent than it has been in decades.  As gun owners stare down the barrel of a Biden-Harris gun control administration, Missouri’s legislators are lining up behind SAPA legislation!

So far, just ten days after filing, Missouri’s SAPA legislation, currently House Bill 85, already has 30 cosponsors!

Gun owners might remember that Missouri tried to pass legislation like this during the 2020 session, but the Corona Scare ended the legislative session early.  But before that happened, SAPA legislation was bulldozing through the legislature with nearly 90 cosponsors out of a total of 116 members.

The two men who filed the SAPA legislation for 2021, Representative Jered Taylor and Senator Eric Burlison refuse to take no for an answer when it comes to Missouri’s gun rights — and Missouri’s other legislators are getting the message!

What Is SAPA Legislation?

SAPA legislation is based on the well-established ‘anti-commandeering doctrine’ which states that the federal government may not simply ‘commandeer’ the state’s legislative authority and force us to submit to federal laws that conflict with state law.
The idea that the states are separate legal entities that have the right to tell the federal government to pound sand has been upheld by the Supreme Court repeatedly — by conservative and liberal justices alike — going back hundreds of years!

SAPA nullifies federal gun control laws by requiring state law enforcement officers and state officials to only enforce state laws regarding firearms, ammo, and accessories — and only if that state law complies with the Second Amendment.

That means that if Joe Biden and his radical Democrat legislature pass a federal law requiring the confiscation of the AR-15 and all magazines that hold over ten rounds of ammunition, that state’s city, state, and county authorities would be required to ignore it.

Title: The Great Ammo Shortage of 2020: When Will It End?
Post by: DunkingDan on January 17, 2021, 01:36:26 PM
Ammunition purchasers across America—or make that would-be purchasers in record numbers—are finding shelves bare, and unfortunately that’s hardly breaking news. If this was simply a Christmas-season run, we could insert a Grinch joke here and assume things would return to normal after the holidays. But, in fact, this shortage, as many readers can attest, traces back at least to spring when COVID mania shocked the country and has since intensified under an unprecedented chain of cultural phenomena. Many gun owners feel that the only way to ensure they have ammo when they need it is to buy in bigger-than-normal quantities, and the result is hoarding.

As detailed in a recent “Keefe Report,” (https://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/2020/12/15/the-keefe-report-wheres-all-the-ammo) nearly any caliber that’ll go bang in whatever quantity is up for grabs is snapped up almost immediately. Consumer frustration is rampant, and there’s a real concern about personal- and home-defense shooters not being able to get ammo they need to be prepared.

Maybe the Federal Government can release some of the billion-plus rounds that they bought up in the last two years of the Obama Administration....

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/06/where_are_all_the_guns_and_ammo_purchased_under_obama.html

SNIP:
During the last two years of the Obama administration, some unusual purchases were made.  Large quantities of ammunition were purchased, as were firearms, mostly for somewhat obscure agencies or agencies with no real need for such weaponry.  Estimates are that over 1 billion rounds of ammunition were ordered, which resulted in making ammunition scarce for the normal civilian market.

Also significant was Obama's troublesome statement made during his campaign, as follows

"We cannot continue to rely only on our military ... we've got to have a civilian security force just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.  We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set."


The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service spent $4.77 million purchasing shotguns, 7.62mm caliber rifles, night-vision goggles, propane cannons, liquid explosives, pyro supplies, buckshot, LP gas cannons, drones, remote-control helicopters, thermal cameras, military waterproof thermal infrared scopes and more.

The SBA loaded up their arsenals with Glock pistols.  The Fish folks spent approximately $410,000 on their Glocks and rifles and modified their Glocks with silencers.

.....and the list goes on.....

Title: Gun control first for Biden executive orders
Post by: DunkingDan on January 19, 2021, 02:02:46 PM
Joe Biden plans to move quickly against guns, adding the issue to his list of first executive orders, according to his top policy aide.

Stef Feldman, the national policy director of Biden's presidential campaign, included the Democrat’s gun plan in a list of initial executive actions set to be unleashed after Inauguration Day.

Speaking in a Zoom briefing hosted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service, she said that Biden is planning to “make big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues.”

She added that “there's really a lot you can do through guidance and executive action.”

Title: What the Media Won’t Tell You About Red-Flag Laws
Post by: DunkingDan on January 25, 2021, 04:07:25 PM
We do not need new “red-flag” laws aimed at guns; we need to return to the old red-flag laws that protected us from dangerous people. Red-flag laws are also called “emergency substantial risk orders.” A judge issues them if he or she finds “a person poses a substantial risk of personal injury to himself or others in the near future by such person’s possession or acquisition of a firearm…,” quoting the current Virginia red-flag law (§ 19.2-152.14).
The theory behind red-flag laws is that some people are obviously dangerous to others, and therefore these dangerous people need to be disarmed to attempt to prevent them from criminally misusing a gun. After the police show up at the “dangerous” person’s door (who has no knowledge that this proceeding has been initiated), they must give up their guns. Later, the courts would decide if a substantial-risk order is justified, according to evidence presented in court.
Red-flag laws have been a political response to the actions of murderers, such as the killings committed in Isla Vista, Calif., on May 23, 2014. According to news reports, this murderer killed six people. He killed three people with a gun. He also stabbed three people to death and injured others when he ran them down with his car. Had the authorities been able to ascertain that this individual was a dangerous person in advance, today’s red-flag laws would have left him without a gun, but fully able to access the other weapons he used.
(https://assets.americas1stfreedom.org/media/3117524/redflag1.jpg)Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin speaks in January 2020, in Santa Fe, N.M., as hundreds of advocates for gun rights rallied at the New Mexico Statehouse against a proposed red-flag gun law.

Red-flag laws are often being used today by politicians opposed, in every way, to the individual’s right to keep and bear arms. These politicians see these laws as an opportunity to reduce gun ownership and to take away the right of due process from American citizens.

Red-flag laws are hardly new. We have had laws like them for two centuries. But instead of only taking away guns from people who are believed to be a substantial risk to others, these older laws also prevented access to other dangerous weapons.
I am currently producing a comprehensive encyclopedia of American mass murder, with a grant from the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund. In the period from 1657 through 1899, I have found 854 mass murders committed with weapons other than firearms (axes, hatchets, knives, razors, blunt objects, explosives, poisons, strangulation, drowning, hanging and a few other odd methods). Today’s mass murderers still use weapons other than guns (autos, blunt objects, knives and arson), but you likely won’t hear this on national news-you’ll only hear about guns.
The old laws were for committing persons who were mentally ill and were believed likely to hurt others, or more commonly, hurt themselves, going back as far as the 17th century. These were emergency commitments until a court hearing could decide if the person was sane enough to be released. These laws were increasingly formalized in the 19th and 20th centuries to provide due process—the right of the accused to be present at the hearing; the right to cross-examine witnesses; and the right to an attorney.
These older laws are still used on occasion. A few weeks after the Newtown tragedy, a science teacher in Bennington, Vt., posted some apparently threatening videos. He was hospitalized “following a mental health evaluation,” according to news reports, and disarmed, as he was in a hospital.
So why have states passed these new, much-less-effective red-flag laws? In the 1960s, an odd and short-lived coalition sought to reform our mental-health system. One group in this coalition was composed of well-meaning doctors who sought to force the states to provide better care to patients in state mental hospitals. Their theory was “treat them or release them.” They felt that no state would release dangerously mentally ill people, as the legislature would obviously find the money for treatment. The other group was the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), whose activists actually denied the very existence of mental illness. Their goal was to so hamstring the commitment process that few mentally ill people would be hospitalized.
The ACLU’s goal was met by federal judges, helped by the fact that some states, such as Wisconsin, had failed to adequately provide due process for people being committed. The patient in one such case was a teacher hanging from the second-story handrails of an apartment complex, screaming that communists were taking over the country.
The claim was that the old system often led to abuse. Doubtless it did. Too much state power inevitably leads to trouble. But then, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was dramatized fiction. The book was fiction. The film was not a documentary. It made a general and very important point, but Ken Kesey wrote it after taking LSD while working in a mental hospital. It should have been used as a check on the system—for reform, not for an annihilation of the system.
The net effect of that aforementioned short-lived coalition, with Kesey’s book as a catalyst, was the emptying of state mental hospitals from the 1960s into the 1980s. States responded by closing empty mental hospitals. Today, there is often nowhere to go for those who would have been committed in 1960, or even for those who voluntarily seek help. Those perhaps well-meaning doctors had achieved something very dangerous.
The ACLU achieved its goal of making it very difficult to commit persons with serious mental-illness problems. Our streets, park benches and libraries soon filled up with often mentally ill homeless people. Murder rates also rose. While most mentally ill people are not dangerous, murderers and other felons are disproportionately mentally ill. It is no coincidence that many of our recent mass murderers have exhibited evidence of mental illness either before or after their crimes.
(https://assets.americas1stfreedom.org/media/3117525/redflag2.jpg)These guns—located in the Westmoreland County Courthouse, in Greensburg, Pa.—have been confiscated via protection-fromabuse orders.

The result of these 1960s and 1970s legal battles was that most states revised their commitment statutes in ways that made it very difficult to hospitalize people who were really dangerous. As an example (sadly, one of many), the mass murderer in the Aurora, Colo., theater in 2012 was so obviously dangerous that his psychiatrist alerted the police. While the details of exactly who said what to whom and when have not been released, what is clear from investigative reporting is that the psychiatrist’s efforts show that she considered the killer to be “high risk” on the Behavioral Evaluation and Threat Assessment (BETA) matrix.

Like many other states, Colorado law allowed for an emergency commitment for a 72-hour observation period. As in many other states, a police officer or a variety of mental-health professionals may order such a person to be taken into custody; however, the emergency-commitment procedure (C.R.S. § 27-65-105(a)(1)) only applies to persons who are “gravely disabled” or who present an “imminent danger to others or to himself or herself.”
Who is gravely disabled? Colorado law had two different definitions of “gravely disabled.” One definition included mentally ill persons at risk because they are unable or unwilling “to provide himself or herself with the essential human needs of food, clothing, shelter and medical care” or “lacks judgment… [so] his or her health or safety is significantly endangered and lacks the capacity to understand that this is so.” This did not describe the killer, whose actions in booby-trapping his apartment and planning the crime showed a person of considerable intelligence. (He was working on his Ph.D. in neuroscience when schizophrenia hit.)
The other definition of “gravely disabled” would fit many mentally ill persons, but not that killer. It included persons diagnosed with schizophrenia, but required that such a person must have been hospitalized “at least twice during the last thirty-six months.” This meant that a mentally ill person who has gone from well to severely mentally ill in a few months, as is alleged to be the case with the theater killer, could not be considered gravely disabled until at least three years later. Worse, a judge could not direct police to bring the person to court for a hearing. If you are convinced the government is plotting against you, why would you accept an invitation to a commitment hearing?
Our prisons and jails today are disproportionately occupied by the mentally ill. So are the tragic headlines after each mass murder. Building and operating mental hospitals is not cheap, but the same is true for jails and prisons.
Until the general public and judges fully understand the nature of what deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill really did to America, there will not be the public will to correct this well-intentioned, but disastrous error. It is time to admit that the theories behind deinstitutionalization were a mistake. They were often well-intentioned theories, but they do not have much to do with the real world. Today’s red-flag laws are not the solution to this problem; better mental-illness commitment policy is.

 Firearm Registry


President Joe Biden campaigned on universal background checks for gun purchases and such checks require a firearm registry in order to be enforceable.

The “Gun Safety” portion of Biden’s campaign website clearly states, “Biden will enact universal background check legislation.”



The website stipulates:

Biden will enact universal background check legislation, requiring a background check for all gun sales with very limited exceptions, such as gifts between close family members. This will close the so-called “gun show and online sales loophole” that the Obama-Biden Administration narrowed, but which cannot be fully closed by executive action alone.

Suing Remington may have bankrupted them, but their operations continue on.

https://nypost.com/2020/09/28/bankrupt-gunmaker-remington-outdoor-to-be-sold-in-pieces/

Remington Outdoor, bankrupt gunmaker, to be sold in pieces to seven buyers

SNIP:
Bankrupt gunmaker Remington Outdoor will split up its business and sell the pieces to seven different buyers following a bankruptcy auction, court records show.

The biggest sale will go to Minnesota-based Vista Outdoor, which said it will pay $81.4 million for Remington’s brand and trademarks along with parts of its ammo and accessories business including an Arkansas ammunition factory.

Other buyers include outdoor-gear retailer Sportsman’s Warehouse, which will acquire the Tapco brand of gun parts and accessories, and Nevada-based gunmaker Franklin Armory, which is snapping up Remington’s Bushmaster rifle brand, records show.

The sales are expected to bring in at least $155 million that will be applied to Remington’s debts, The Wall Street Journal reported. The company filed for bankruptcy in July as it struggled with weak sales after a 2018 restructuring that slimmed down its hefty debt load.

On a more personal note the Remington bankruptcy forced the closure of the plant here in Huntsville putting several hundred people out of work. One of my neighbors is late 50's and a career engineer with Remington who is now out of work. He was offered a job in south Alabama at a plant that bought one of Remington subsidiaries but will be forced to rent a place there for during  the week and commute back home over the weekend as his wife can't relocate. Remington is being sold off piece-meal.
 A sad ending to America's oldest gun and ammo company.

Title: AN ODE TO DEPARTMENT STORE GUNS
Post by: DunkingDan on January 28, 2021, 02:55:19 PM
It’s hard to believe today, and even harder to explain to someone under the age of 50, that there was once a time when firearms were regarded as sporting goods by major retailers. They were basically treated like baseball bats or golf clubs—selling in huge department stores that appealed to the broadest customer base possible. (You might also struggle to explain what a department store was.)
In this new era of e-commerce, the very concept of the department store has almost faded into history. The few that remain are only shadows of what they once were—and the fact that they not only sold firearms but even their own store-specific models sounds totally alien to younger hunters. When you think of buying a new shotgun, the place in the mall where parents take kids to buy an awkward-fitting jacket for the spring formal isn’t the first place that comes to mind.
Somewhere between the 1970s and 2010s, department stores, once the monoliths of retail, became anchors for even larger shopping malls. Those too have been gradually replaced by big box retailers and online shopping. Today the few brick-and-mortar department stores are on their last legs, with some likely dealt a death blow by the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past decade Americans have seen those newer retail giants greatly reduce or completely eliminate their gun counters, often amidst controversy, relegating firearm sales to outdoor-focused big box stores and dedicated gun shops.

Title: GUN SALES CONTINUE TO CLIMB, NEW RECORD MONTHLY NICS NUMBERS
Post by: DunkingDan on February 04, 2021, 05:19:48 PM
Licensed gun dealers in the first month of 2021 continued to observe skyrocketing firearms sales as suggested by a record jump in federal firearm background checks.

The unadjusted figures of 4,288,240 checks conducted through the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System in January 2021 is a tremendous 61.7 percent jump from the unadjusted FBI NICS figure of 2,652,263 logged in January 2020.

However, when the data is adjusted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation by removing figures for gun permit checks and rechecks by states which use NICS for that purpose, the number of checks stands at 2,052,130 which is an even higher 75.2 percent increase compared to the January 2020 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 1,171,478.

The figure is the highest for any January in the NICS program's 23-year history and is the latest installment in a surge in checks that began last March, coinciding with the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, heated election-year political rhetoric, and a wave of urban violence.

"January’s NICS figures clearly spell out that the demand of law-abiding Americans to purchase firearms isn’t abating. It is growing," said Mark Oliva, director of public affairs for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. "Three of the top 10 weeks and one top 10 single day for the highest number of FBI NICS background checks occurred in January. Taken into context that all but one of the top 10 weeks and four other top 10 single-day records occurred during 2020, when 21 million background checks were conducted, these are jaw-dropping figures to start the New Year."


NEW GUN SALESMAN OF THE YEAR

With a new administration in the White House, single-party control of the federal government, and draconic gun control proposals already being floated in Congress, some consumers are heading to the gun counter while they still can.

"It can’t be discounted that many of these background checks for the purchase of a firearm are attributed to threats by the Biden administration to enact the most radical and far-reaching gun control agenda ever proposed," said Oliva. "Americans are continuing to purchase firearms at a blistering pace."

Oliva pointed out that the Biden administration’s opening salvo against the firearms industry occurred last week with freezing the publication of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s “Fair Access” banking rule. More battles are expected in the coming months.

"President Biden promised to pursue the repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, weaponize the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to revoke licenses for minor clerical errors and ban entire classes of firearms from lawful ownership and tax or seize modern sporting rifles, or AR-15 style rifles, and magazines in a scheme that would cost those owners an estimated $34 billion for the privilege to own what they already lawfully own," explained Oliva.

And the kicker?

"The Biden administration has yet to put forth a single proposal to tackle the crime, lawlessness, rioting, and looting that has plagued this nation for the year," he said.

Note Green isn’t stupid enough to try to ban all private sales, so you could still sell to someone at your house. Just not at the gun show, or even in the parking lot. So it really only takes aim at the much-hated gun shows.

It’s inconceivable to them that with 423 million firearms in private hands, and 8.1 billion rounds of ammunition produced a year if the average gun owner was the problem they would know it.

So there we come to the reality folks. Democrats like Green are hell-bent on turning gun owners into criminals, in part because they know the average gun owner is law abiding and will follow the law.

This isn’t about crime, it’s about control. And they know it.

 GUNS WITHOUT A WARRANT



Quote
The 4th Amendment right against warrantless searches of a person’s home is a pillar of Americans’ constitutional liberties. Before a police officer, or any other government official, can enter your home, they must show a judge that they have probable cause that they will discover specific evidence of a crime.

There are some limited exceptions to this right. There is an “exigent circumstances” exception. If a police officer looks through a home’s window and sees a person about to stab another person, the officer can burst through the door to prevent the attack. There is also the “emergency aid” exception. If the officer looked through the same window and saw the resident collapsing from an apparent heart attack, the officer could run into the house to administer aid. Neither of these cases violates the 4th Amendment and few would argue that it should be otherwise.

Title: KIMBER DISAVOWS ANTI-CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY FORMER EXEC
Post by: DunkingDan on February 09, 2021, 06:04:46 PM
Alabama-based gunmaker Kimber  (https://www.guns.com/search?keyword=kimber)on Wednesday made clear that the opinions expressed by one of its former employees on a Montana permitless carry bill are not theirs. 
“Kimber is a proud supporter of our Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms,” said Leslie Edelman, CEO and owner of Kimber, in a statement. “We support organizations that defend these rights, and we are committed to providing the people of this great nation with the finest premium firearms available.” 
The statement came after Ryan Busse, who identified himself in a Jan. 25 opinion piece (https://missoulian.com/opinion/columnists/being-pro-gun-also-means-being-pro-responsibility-we-must-oppose-hb102/article_f601b1b0-17e1-5e60-9136-ebe2e5aa4981.html) for The Missoulian as helping "build the gun company Kimber while serving as its vice president," made the case against Montana House Bill 102, a measure that would expand concealed carry rights in the state.  (https://www.guns.com/news/2021/01/11/montana-utah-look-to-constitutional-carry)
"The author of this article, Ryan Busse, is no longer an employee of Kimber and has not worked for Kimber since August of 2020," stressed the company after videos by popular 2A advocates lit up social media on the subject. "His statements and opinions expressed regarding the opposition of Montana House Bill 102 are not authorized by or attributable to Kimber."
Kimber, long a New York-based company, made headlines (https://www.guns.com/news/2020/10/26/kimber-shifts-from-new-york-to-pro-gun-alabama) last year by pulling stumps and moving from the Empire State to the more gun-friendly climate of Troy, Alabama. 
As for HB 102, it passed  (http://laws.leg.mt.gov/legprd/LAW0203W$BSRV.ActionQuery?P_SESS=20211&P_BLTP_BILL_TYP_CD=HB&P_BILL_NO=102&P_BILL_DFT_NO=&P_CHPT_NO=&Z_ACTION=Find&P_ENTY_ID_SEQ2=&P_SBJT_SBJ_CD=&P_ENTY_ID_SEQ=)the Montana Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Yes, Biden would indeed "love to see action on gun control measures".  I think he made that pretty clear in the campaign.  Maybe he will put that tall fellow with a good head of hair in charge.

Biden would love to see action on a lot of measures, many of which to me look to be doomed in part by the shear number of them and the makeup of the Senate.

If a bill looks to be about to pass the Senate, it would be worth comment, in my mind.

The last time they "banned" so called assault rifles, it was a ban on sales of new ones, and the definition was rather contorted, which is understandable given how convoluted the term is in reality.  As expected, it had no measurable impact on crime rates and the law was dropped a decade later.

They talk about rifles with at least two features, the second of which is more cosmetic in effect than useful.  The pistol grip is handy.

According to the industry umbrella group, “The year-to-date total of 19.1 million adjusted background checks continues to add to a record-setting year for firearm sales. The previous complete annual record of 15.7 million background checks was set in 2016. NSSF retailer surveys estimate that nearly 7.7 million people purchased a firearm for the first time in 2020.”

Maryland HB 175 has been placed at the House Judiciary Committee for consideration, and a hearing will be held on March 1.
The bill would require an ammunition vendor to confirm the identity of the purchaser and any potential recipient of ammunition, run a background check, and create an electronic record of any sale, including detailed personal information of the purchaser and/or receiver.

Quote


 
In response to President Joe Biden’s promises to further limit gun ownership, Tennessee legislators introduced the Second Amendment Sanctuary Act.
The bill (http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/112/Bill/HB0928.pdf) summarizes its premise in just under a page – prohibiting enforcement of any federal government laws, treaties, executive orders, rules, or regulations that violate the Second Amendment. The summary explained that passage would render pressures on Second Amendment rights as “null, void, and unenforceable.” Additionally, the bill would limit state or local governments from using public funds, personnel, or property to enforce them.
State Representative Scotty Campbell (R-Mountain City) introduced the bill first, followed by a companion bill from State Senator Joey Hensley (R-Hohenwald).

I personally find it useful to review what was tried in the past as one clue as to what might actually get DONE today.  A lot gets proposed, generally something quite a bit lessened gets actually passed, for obvious reasons, the Senate.

At the Federal level, this seems to be rather low on the legislative priority list, but Democrats have everything high which is impossible of course.

IT’S ALL ONE PR MACHINE, PUSHING THE SAME NARRATIVE EVERYWHERE: TV Shows Push Gun Control Myths — in Sync With Biden. (https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2021/02/18/tv_shows_push_gun_control_myths_--_in_sync_with_biden_145263.html) “Last week, the Biden administration promised gun control groups that it will soon roll out a massive push for limits on firearm purchases and other measures. President Biden reiterated that promise on Sunday. And the television networks aren’t waiting to lay the groundwork for this effort. CBS is in a full-court press for gun control on its evening entertainment television shows. The bad guys are always white supremacists who use machine guns — supposedly AR-15s — to commit mass public shootings. Criminals in Mexico supposedly get machine guns from the United States. A father’s desire to protect his family only leads to tragedy when his daughter gets into the gun safe and uses the weapon in a mass public shooting. And guns in the home pose a danger for children. Gun registration is necessary for solving crime. NBC isn’t to be left out, showing a woman who tried but failed to use a gun to protect herself. Instead, her gun was taken from her and used to kill a police officer. The lesson is that owning a gun will only bring you grief. And that’s just in the first six weeks of the year. Every show gives an inaccurate impression about firearms, thereby helping in this push for gun restrictions. It’s as though these shows were written by Michael Bloomberg’s gun control organizations. Indeed, the networks are working with these groups.”

Title: Business is booming in this small-town gun shop
Post by: DunkingDan on February 21, 2021, 03:16:50 PM
 Within moments of President Biden using the anniversary of a school shooting to call on Congress to take on new gun restrictions, Nathan Carey's phone began ringing. The 37-year-old gun shop proprietor said he was fairly certain he knew what triggered it before taking the first call.
"It happens every time a politician mentions gun control," said Carey, owner of the Bullseye Firearms Gun Vault.
Carey said Biden's call for congressional action on guns didn't just increase his already brisk business. Gun owners and nongun owners alike called the shop, asking questions.
"We didn't just get calls and foot traffic. We also got a lot of questions. People want to be educated. They want to understand what is happening, why it is happening, and how it will affect their lives and their ability to purchase a gun or ammunition," explained Carey.



Located on Main Street off old Route 22, Carey's gun shop business is robust. Part of that is loyalty and trust built over generations beginning with his grandfather, a highly respected gun dealer.
It also boasts of extraordinary customer service.
As each person walks in, they are guided through with care and knowledge whether they are an experienced gun collector or a first-time buyer. The former is often looking to expand a collection. The latter is a phenomenon that has exploded industry sales so much in the past 12 months that it has depleted stock no one, including a seasoned pro such as Carey, ever anticipated.
Last month, the Pennsylvania State Police reported that October through December of last year was the busiest quarter in the 22-year history of the state's Instant Check System. The state processed over 420,000 firearm license background checks through that law enforcement agency within that time frame. The previous record of just over 400,000 was set in the third quarter, July through September.



In comparison, 270,000 firearm background checks were processed in the last quarter of 2019. Nationwide, the National Shooting Sports Foundation data showed over 21 million people bought guns in 2020, with well over 8 million first-time firearm owners.
Nearly half of those first-time gun owners were women, and that aligns with Carey's expanded customer base. "The female first-time gun owner has been growing for a while, but it surged even more last year when the pandemic hit," said Carey.
Carey said it increased even further during the protests that started last summer. Women were interested in not just protecting themselves but also their families and loved ones. He said, "Whether you're a male or female, you have the right to protect yourself and your family, and that right starts to get attention when people feel things are unstable in the world."
Carey said the "defund the police" movement also sparked interest in the firearms from people who told him they never once considered buying a gun. "A lot of the same people that said, 'You know what? It's OK. We don't need guns because the police are going to protect us,' quickly changed their tune and said, 'Why the hell do I want to give up gun rights if they're going to get rid of the police?'" he said of numerous interactions with first-time buyers. "People wanted to be empowered to protect their families."

(Shannon Venditti / Washington Examiner)
The building that houses Bullseye Firearms Gun Vault is the old New Alexandria National Bank, which was folded into a more prominent bank decades ago. The tiny town with a population of 500 was nearly wiped out 100 years ago when a rare cyclone ripped down the old William Penn Highway, upending much of the town's infrastructure in its path. Miraculously, only buildings, including the bank's stable, suffered.
Carey, who grew up in the industry traveling all over the region with his grandfather to gun shows, picked the old building for the business because of the building's unique character.
"I didn't want to have customers coming to your normal strip mall kind of gun shop. I knew it was going to be a challenge because I'm right off of the highway, not on the highway, but I figured that we could do it, and I did," he said.
Located at the halfway point between Pittsburgh and Johnstown, the store is brightly lit and well stocked with firearms. Then, you notice the towering four sides of ammunition shelves are far from full, with a sign warning a two-box limit per caliber.
Carey said that when you have millions of new gun owners, you also have millions of new people buying ammunition. "Let's just say they all bought two boxes of ammo. That's a hell of a lot of ammo, so the industry went to zero, and when it goes to zero, it was just like the toilet paper shortage. You don't know where the hell it went."
Carey said when the ammunition comes into the store, it goes right back out. "It is the same thing with firearms. When firearms come in, they go right back out because everybody's looking."
Going back to last March, it has not been uncommon for him to have a line wrapped around the building. This year, Carey said, it is no different with the weeks leading up to and after Biden's inauguration handing him record numbers. "January was an absolutely crazy month, one of the busiest months that I've ever had being in business," he said.
He isn't alone. The FBI reported it conducted over 4.3 million gun background checks in January, clocking in the highest number of background checks conducted during a single month in the bureau's recorded history.

(Shannon Venditti / Washington Examiner)
That demand comes with consequences, said Carey. "I do a lot of used gun business, but the used gun market has been almost zero for the past year. Nobody's been selling their used guns. Everybody's been holding on to them."
His overall inventory is traditionally at 800. Right now, he is at 300. "So, I still got 300 guns, which is great. It's just that it's not my normal. I'm down under 50% of what I normally carry," Carey said.
Carey said he hasn't physically been able to order a firearm or ammo in nearly eight months. "If you're on a distributor's or manufacturer's special list, [and] they call you and tell you, 'This is what we have for you today. Take it or don't. That's it,' well, you take it," he said.
Luckily, he said, he is on some of those special lists. "Thankfully, throughout the years, I'm always wheeling and dealing, right? That puts me on some good distributors' lists, and I'm factory-direct with a bunch of companies. So, I've been getting a steady bit of product," he said.
Then, came the warning, he said. "Nothing's ever enough in something like this, though."
In short, Carey said there is no stocking up in the latest surge in gun sales. "There is no ramping up for what's going to be coming down the pipeline with President Biden's agenda because we've never had a chance to slow down," he said.
As the door opened and shut several times, the constant business at the Bullseye gun shop shows how people respond to the instability of our culture with the pursuit of self-protection. Whether it is the concerns created by government lockdowns, the looming threat of gun reform, the fear another riot is around the corner, or concerns people have with their government, Carey said people tell him they are uneasy.



That unease is only increasing," he said. "People know the fight over gun control is only going to escalate that. It already is."

Is there some gun legislation that has any chance of passing the Senate?

Some items are popular, if you believe polling data.  Those items, in my view, are optics, not substance, they would tend to be onerous.

This notion of closing the so called "gun show loophole" sounds like a real thing and many support it, but of course it makes very little sense in real terms.  Banning sale of scary rifles is the same.  That MIGHT pass the Senate, I'm not sure what else could.

It strikes me as interesting to discuss what we think COULD pass the Senate in this area, but I can understand that some may not wish to on record.

If someone wishes to discuss this issue, that would be great.  Or, we can all just fantasize about all the terrifically horrible things that are about to happen ...

... and ignore the past, the Senate, reality, and whatever else could be important to consider.

Civil war, Texas seceding, gasoline at $4 plus, China owning us, Iran with nukes (plausible at some point), massive deficits (more than at some point), open borders (or my favorite, "boarders", I see that a lot),  ...

But if a poster doesn't wish to discuss anything coherently, cartoons are one good option.  Well, not a good option, it's pretty pointless.

Good. More the merrier. People need to buy more AR guns that shoot over one thousand 50 caliber bullets per second (can’t recall which retard said something like that).

Seriously, the more guns our citizens have the better off we are. 

What’s up with NE and OH and the low percentages of gun owners? MO shocked me with Cali level gun ownership. TN at only 39%. Who lied to whoever obtained those numbers. Felons, and guns purchased by friends and family aren’t accounted for. It’s more like 45% to 60%.

You too. I was trying to get mine to the hunting club late this last season and was crossing a channel in Fayette County when my brother-in-law stood up to get a better look at a buck standing off in the brush. Well, wouldn’t you know it, his sudden movement caused the boat to tip and I lost my guns. I would’ve tried to get them but that area is normally covered with cottonmouths so I decided I didn’t need guns anymore. After all, I’m confident China Joe will protect us all from a Chinese / Russian invasion or from Antifa / BLM “protesters”. I’ll just tell any assailants to stop whatever they had planned and allow me to enter a gun free zone safe space. That should work.

I think I might buy a Biden approved 22LR lever action rifle since all of my other guns are at the bottom of a creek. I don’t want any of those high powered scary guns. Especially those AR’s that shoot 1000 rounds of 50 cal per minute. 

I was at a sporting goods store the other day and the salesman was telling a story about a guy that came in looking for 22LR ammo. The salesman asked how much he had already and the guy told him he had 60,000 rounds. The salesman also ran across another guy that had 40,000 rounds of 22LR.

The sporting goods manager at another store says the same 3 guys come in every ammo shipment day and buys them out of ammo. They get there 2 hours before the store opens so they are the first ones on the ammo isle.

This is why we have an ammo shortage. There are people that are making a career out of buying all of the ammo as the shipments arrive at the store. They’re buying the ammo off the shelves and then selling it on websites for a 2x or 3x profit. 

You can still buy ammo from the big box store at the normal price but since people are doing what I described above, most people are having to resort to buying ammo on-line. A box of ammo that cost $30 about 1 year ago will cost you $60 to $75 on-line plus shipping. 

At some point people will say “enough” and stop buying on line. I think we’re nearing that point. I’m not seeing ammo move on-line like it did 2 months ago.

Politicians who don’t believe you should have Second Amendment rights have often tried to hide their gun-control laws in arguments for “public health.” The idea is to turn a matter of elementary liberty into a crisis that mandates instant action. Joe Biden has been loudly signaling that he plans to do this about guns, and the mainstream media is already obediently playing along.

That firearms can be dangerous in the hands of an evil person is obvious to anyone. Indeed, this is precisely why it matters who gets to own them. To a certain type of gun-controller, however, the mere fact that guns can be used by criminals to harm others presents them with an opportunity to subvert the U.S. Constitution.

Typically, this process is fairly straightforward: First, they declare that the criminal use of firearms is a “public-health issue,” and they say it requires a response determined by health professionals and researchers; next, they set up a series of studies that will result in health professionals and researchers concluding that the only way to fix the “public-health issue” is to ban firearms; finally, they pretend that they are surprised by the recommendations made by the health professionals and researchers, but that they are obliged to follow them on the grounds that they are merely “going where the data leads.” It’s science!

It gets interesting to review their legal definition of "assault rifle".  It's fairly easy to circumvent, you eliminate the adjustable stock, barrel shroud, bayonet mount, and a couple other features like the pistol grip and you'd have a "legal" weapon with the same fire power.

The magazine limits are more intrusive of course, to the extent that could possibly make any difference to anything in terms of crime.

Very few murders are committed with "assault rifles".  The Atlanta shooter used a 9 mm and the Boulder shooter used a 5.56 mm "pistol".

Flight Er Doc • 
In the early 90's, Florida had special and distinctive license plates for rental cars... Since they had switched to a 'Shall Issue' licensing schema for concealed carry, thugs and crooks started preferentially stealing from and carjacking rental cars, figuring that visitors would not be armed.

The year after they switched to regular plates for rental cars, the crime rate for rental cars became the same as any other car.

Criminals do not like being killed by an armed populace. Which is a very good reason to be armed.

BTW, Tennessee will be a Constitutional Carry state this summer. That brings the number to 20, I think.

Criminals are excellent calculators of risk. You do not have to do much to make the risk unacceptably high. Then they go somewhere where it isn't. This is eminently logical. No wonder Liberals don't get it.

Hunter Biden Incident Shows That Gun Laws Are For The Little People

SNIP:
If Hunter and Hallie are guilty of any illegal conduct, it’s difficult to fault the pair for ignoring the potential legal ramifications of their actions. After all, these gun control measures were not designed to be followed by well-connected elites like them.

This point is underscored by the Secret Service’s alleged involvement in the case. Rather than having their conduct scrutinized by federal law enforcement, if the Politico report and Hunter’s contemporaneous text messages are to be believed, the federal government tried to cover up for the prominent pair.

As well-protected politicians and their establishment allies push for new gun controls, ordinary law-abiding Americans should know that these hypocrites have no intention of parting with their own elaborate security measures or being otherwise inconvenienced by the burdens they foist upon the rest of us.

It’s hard to believe today, and even harder to explain to someone under the age of 50, that there was once a time when firearms were regarded as sporting goods by major retailers. They were basically treated like baseball bats or golf clubs—selling in huge department stores that appealed to the broadest customer base possible. (You might also struggle to explain what a department store was.)
In this new era of e-commerce, the very concept of the department store has almost faded into history. The few that remain are only shadows of what they once were—and the fact that they not only sold firearms but even their own store-specific models sounds totally alien to younger hunters. When you think of buying a new shotgun, the place in the mall where parents take kids to buy an awkward-fitting jacket for the spring formal isn’t the first place that comes to mind.
Somewhere between the 1970s and 2010s, department stores, once the monoliths of retail, became anchors for even larger shopping malls. Those too have been gradually replaced by big box retailers and online shopping. Today the few brick-and-mortar department stores are on their last legs, with some likely dealt a death blow by the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past decade Americans have seen those newer retail giants greatly reduce or completely eliminate their gun counters, often amidst controversy, relegating firearm sales to outdoor-focused big box stores and dedicated gun shops.

I recall a couple times taking my 22 in and leaving it at the principals office when I was going home with my cousin (on a bus) to hunt after school. We also road Greyhound with our guns strapped to our luggage wrapped in paper to go to our grandparents for a week.   

IN the 90's I talked to my sons principal to get him checked out of school early so he could come home and get his deer rifle, as he was going with my cousin to west Tn to Deer hunt. My cousin was coming thought the nearest town and was going to pick him up at a friends there. The principal said to just tell him to bring his gun and leave it in his truck as over half of them had hunting rifles in them/

Related when I was in HS we had school administrators and several teachers (both male and female) who carried to help protect us as our school that had been blown up a few years earlier was under constant threat. No reason staff could not do the same today.

“At Waco, cult members used 2 .50 caliber Barretts to shoot down two Texas Air National Guard helicopters,” he wrote in an answer, “It is true we are fortunate they are not used in crime more often.

While it is largely understood that Branch Davidian members shot at the helicopters, the vessels themselves did not go down.

Most notably, no Barretts were recovered at the scene of the massacre.

“Although all of the three helicopters sustained damage from weapons fire, none of the National Guard crews or ATF aboard were injured,” a 1996 House report conducted in tandem by the Oversight and Judiciary Committees found.



“Investigate all illegal gunfire as a potential homicide,” he wrote in a 2016 LinkedIn post, “Once we do this we can turn the tide on gun crime.”

“We spend so much to defend our nation yet care so little about other Americans,” he wrote in a 2014 post, calling gun violence “[t]he [c]ivil [r]ights challenge of this generation.”

When I was growing up most of my friends and myself knew where our parents weapons where. We would also rather face the gates of hell than our parent’s wrath if we ever touched them.
• Firearm accident deaths are at an all-time annual low, while the U.S. population is at an all-time high. Therefore, the firearm accident death rate is at an all-time annual low, 0.2 per 100,000 population, down 94% since the all-time high in 1904.
 
• Firearms are involved in 0.6% of accidental deaths nationally. Most accidental deaths involve, or are due to, motor vehicles (39%), poisoning (18%), falls (16%), suffocation (5%), drowning (2.9%), fires (2.8%), medical mistakes (2.2%), environmental factors (1.2%), and bicycles and tricycles (0.7%). Among children: motor vehicles (45%), suffocation (18%), drowning (14%), fires (9%), bicycles and tricycles (2.4%), falls (2%), poisoning (1.6%),environmental factors (1.5%), and medical mistakes (0.8%). 
Sort of puts things in perspective. A bicycle and tricycle is more likely to kill some by accident than a gun. Do we need to band cycles? Wonder why all we hear about is the evil firearms? Could it be an agenda?

It was from two sources from two different periods of time in a combined response I gave you years ago in fact it was on 2/12/2008 @ 3:37 PM in fact I started it off    with   These are from a  variety of sources and can be verified ( I have many times in the past) if you wish to do so. Must stats are from the FBI, CDC or other government agencies.

You also realize .2 per 100,000 is a different stat than 0.6% of accidental deaths don't you?   Or was you in to big of a hurry to make another one of your failed gotcha attempts?

Sad you ignore many things are more deadly to children. Is it an agenda. 

Maybe we should include the number of abortions. Noting is more deadly to a Childs life than the mothers womb

What is your issue with the figures?  Did you think gun accidents were a much higher percentage of all gun deaths?

I showed that accidental deaths have fallen rather significantly over the past 20 years or so, it's a fact.  And the number fortunately is not a high percentage.  Suicide is the big one.  Of course, US suicide rates are a bit lower than places like France and Japan, of all causes.

What an effen surprise.....and I thought that Obama was a good gun salesman....

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/biden-threat-supercharges-sales-of-ghost-guns-ar-pistols-ammo

Biden threat supercharges sales of ‘ghost guns,’ AR pistols, and ammunition

SNIP:
Sales of so-called "ghost guns," AR-style pistols, and the ammunition they use have exploded since President Joe Biden pledged yesterday to impose new gun controls and even grab weapons from “people in crisis.”

“Please be advised that lead times are currently extended due to very high demand. The current ETA is 10-12 weeks,” warns the website of Virginia’s Alexander Arms, the maker of the popular Highlander AR-style pistol.


“President Biden handed another stimulus to the gun industry in the form of legislation and executive actions that will never survive legal scrutiny,” said Justin Anderson, marketing director of Charlotte, North Carolina’s Hyatt Gun Shop.

Gun sales had already reached historic levels, driven by over 8 million new buyers last year, mostly women and minorities concerned about the rise in violence, the Black Lives Matter riots, and Democratic threats to dismantle the Second Amendment.

But it surged for those weapons targeted by Biden — AR pistols and kit guns.


Jacki Billings, the editor of the gun site Pew Pew Tactical, said, “Historically, anytime an anti-gun politician enters office or threatens increased restrictions, we see a surge in gun and accessory sales. Consumers get nervous about the potential loss of access to these items and naturally want to stock up. It’s an interesting cause/effect that I don’t think many politicians consider when they threaten to buckle down on guns or parts.”

How many "ghost guns" are actually fabricated in the US each year?  I guess we could only guess.  You need an LR from somewhere without a serial number, an 80% LR would do it.  Maybe they sell a lot of those?

If I wanted an AR, I really wouldn't bother with it myself.  Some folks worried about "registration" and record keeping would of course.

When I moved to Ohio, I asked the local chief is they had registration up there, I didn't know.  He looked at me like I was crazy and said "Nope".  No Internet then.

Some states/cities require registration of some types of guns, a law widely ignored by many.

They didn’t really address the entire situation and rightly so. They remained focused on the actual situation brought before them but at some point the “red flag” BS will have to be addressed. It’s dangerous in that innocent people can lose their guns based upon an unfounded accusation. I look forward to the day the SCOTUS ends that BS.

Suing Remington may have bankrupted them, but their operations continue on.

https://nypost.com/2020/09/28/bankrupt-gunmaker-remington-outdoor-to-be-sold-in-pieces/

Remington Outdoor, bankrupt gunmaker, to be sold in pieces to seven buyers

SNIP:
Bankrupt gunmaker Remington Outdoor will split up its business and sell the pieces to seven different buyers following a bankruptcy auction, court records show.

The biggest sale will go to Minnesota-based Vista Outdoor, which said it will pay $81.4 million for Remington’s brand and trademarks along with parts of its ammo and accessories business including an Arkansas ammunition factory.

Other buyers include outdoor-gear retailer Sportsman’s Warehouse, which will acquire the Tapco brand of gun parts and accessories, and Nevada-based gunmaker Franklin Armory, which is snapping up Remington’s Bushmaster rifle brand, records show.

The sales are expected to bring in at least $155 million that will be applied to Remington’s debts, The Wall Street Journal reported. The company filed for bankruptcy in July as it struggled with weak sales after a 2018 restructuring that slimmed down its hefty debt load.

The Remington plant here in Huntsville has closed. One of my neighbors was an engineer with Remington and was laid off. The division he worked for was sold off to another company and he has been offered there but it's a couple hundred miles from here.

Lets hope they continue making a quality product, for a while years ago there was a decline in quality as they seemed to rely on their name as they went out of the way to cut production costs on some of their lines.

Judge rules California's ban on assault weapons unconstitutional (cnbc.com) (https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/05/judge-rules-californias-ban-on-assault-weapons-unconstitutional.html)

A federal judge on Friday struck down California’s ban on assault weapons as unconstitutional but left plenty of time for the state to file an appeal.
The state’s definition of illegal military-style rifles unlawfully deprives law-abiding Californians of weapons commonly allowed in most other states and by the U.S. Supreme Court, the judge wrote.

Judge Roger T. Benitez, who has favored pro-gun groups in past rulings, described the AR-15 rifle, used in many of the nation’s deadliest mass shootings (https://www.nbcnews.com/video/the-ar-15-rifle-and-america-s-mass-shootings-1162481219807), as an ideal weapon.
“Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment,” he wrote in Friday’s decision.

Title: FEDS RELEASE BLUEPRINT FOR GUN SEIZURE LAWS, SEEK FUNDING
Post by: DunkingDan on June 08, 2021, 05:21:22 PM
The U.S. Department of Justice this week published  (https://www.justice.gov/doj/reducing-gun-violence/commentary-extreme-risk-protection-order-model-legislation)model legislation to help states craft their own “extreme risk protection order” laws, otherwise known as controversial “red flag” laws.
"Today we continue to deliver on our promise to help save lives while protecting the rights of law-abiding Americans," said recently appointed U.S. Attorney General Merrick B. Garland (https://www.guns.com/news/2021/03/11/merrick-garland-approved-as-us-attorney-general) in a statement along with the rollout. "We welcome the opportunity to work with communities in the weeks and months ahead in our shared commitment to end gun violence."
Going past what many existing state laws allow, the model legislation enables not only law enforcement or a family member to request such a gun seizure order, but also a "dating or intimate partner," health care provider, or school official. It allows for ex parte orders, which famously "gets the guns first" without the subject of the order even knowing it has been filed, and makes the burden of restoring their Second Amendment rights an adversarial process. 
Further, it requires the law enforcement agency carrying out the search and seizure order to report it to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, as well as any known state background check system, effectively suspending the subject's right to keep and bear arms. 
What it does not include is any form of counseling or mental health treatment, although the nature of such orders is to keep an individual "at crisis" from legally accessing or possessing guns. It is also vague about penalties or punishments for those filing false or harassing orders, leaving that up to the states to decide. 
The proposed DOJ budget request  (https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/jus_fy22.pdf)sent to a Democrat-controlled Congress from the Biden-Harris Administration includes $40 million in federal funding for an incentivization program for red flag and gun licensing laws. 
Currently, 19 states and the District of Columbia have varying extreme risk protection order laws.
Pro-gun groups have stumped against such laws for years. Such organizations argue red flag orders have little impact on crime and instead force individuals to surrender legal firearms to law enforcement based on often uncorroborated statements. That then puts those gun owners into an expensive uphill fight to get their rights restored.
They also criticize the trend as a move to go after guns rather than potentially dangerous people, as the orders typically have no mandate for mental health evaluation tied to them.
“If you send police to confiscate someone’s firearms because he is considered to be a threat to himself or someone else,” Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, told Guns.com previously, “but you leave that individual essentially on the loose, what’s to prevent that person from committing mayhem with a car or some other weapon?"
Gottlieb also contends that the orders could be used maliciously, saying, “Nobody should be subjected to such legal abuse, essentially being considered guilty until they prove themselves innocent, and in the meantime having their Second Amendment rights suspended or revoked.”

For all of you out buying ammo? The two pictures are a recent ammo purchase at a Walmart. After purchasing the ammo it was noticed that the neck was cracked on one of the shell casings.  So every round was inspected and 13 out of 60 of the shells had cracked necks.
This isn't Walmart's fault. This is the fault of the new manufacturer of Remington ammo since post bankruptcy purchase.
Vista outdoors purchased Remington ammunition post bankruptcy and seems to have no quality control. Please check your ammo before purchasing. A cracked shell casing will cause the firearm to exploded and cause severe injury, even death.

Perspective. The cartridge on the left is a 5.56 / .223 Remington, most commonly used in the “evil” AR-15. The middle cartridge is used mostly for hunting. Then there’s the “cartridge” on the right - responsible for the most deaths, every year, by far. If gun control was about saving lives, this one would also be banned. Wake up folks. Gun control is not about safety.

I suppose that he is right in the sense that it is harder to hit something at close range with a rifle than with a shotgun.  

I still don't get all the focus on AR-15s.  If there were in fact some sensible "common sense" gun regulations proposed, somewhere, I would give them a listen.

E for Eric@AngerE

He also has ID. How can that be?

The magic moment is at 1:38 - the man has ID on him. I was assured by the Plantation Democrats that government issued ID was not attainable for people of color so requiring it was just a way to keep them from voting. My God, I feel like I just saw Bigfoot riding a Unicorn.

A hundred and fourteen years ago, in 1907...our great grandparents were first able to buy the rifle pictured. The semi-auto Winchester Model 1907.
This is a gun they could buy from a Sears catalogue and have delivered via US Post. It was/ is a semi-automatic, high powered centerfire rifle, with detachable, high capacity magazine.
About 400,000 semi-automatic rifles were produced before WW2. Civilians had hundreds of thousands of these for 40 years, while US soldiers were still being issued old fashioned bolt action rifles.
The 1907 fired just as fast as an AR15 or AK47 and the bullet (.351 Winchester) was actually larger than those fired by the more modern looking weapons..
The ONLY functional difference between the 1907 and a controversial and much feared AR15 is the modern black plastic stock.

The semi auto, so-called "assault rifle" is 110 years old. It isnt new in any way.
The semi auto rifle was not a weapon of war. The government MADE IT a weapon of war 40 years after civilians had them.
The semi-auto can be safely owned by civilians. The proof is that literally 3 generations of adults owned and used them responsibly and no one ever even noticed.
Want to fix the horror of mass shootings? Fix the things that have changed for the worse in the last 50 years. Family Values, Prayer from Schools, Ten Commandments from court houses, Spanking Kids, Morals, What is socially acceptable, Confusion on Genders, Left Wing Liberalism, Socialism, ect.

Cause the rifle technology in question was here long before this insanity. GOD SAVE THE USA.

Kinda funny story.  I dropped my wife off at the airport on Saturday - she's flying to Dublin (again) to see the new grandbaby (again).  While she was waiting in line to check her bag, she started observing a young couple ahead of her.  As they were checking their bag, they declared that they had an unloaded firearm in a locked pistol case.   The agent opened the bag to see if it complied with TSA guidelines, and told them their lock was not adequate.   The young man had used the safety lock that came with his handgun, the one designed to loop through the grip and the action, but had threaded it instead through the latch on the case.  The agent would not let them check their bag and offered no suggestions as to what they should do.  FYI, airports no longer have lockers for long-term storage (thank you, terrorists everywhere).   

In steps grandma.  She finds out they just got married and are on their way from DFW to Florida for their honeymoon.  They are a little younger than our kids, and she instantly takes a liking to them.  Then she volunteers me.  I get a call to turn around and meet the 3 of them at the terminal. The young husband said he had a LTC and had been carrying for about 5 years.  He knew he couldn't throw his handgun and ammo in the trash, but was all out of options.  He didn't want to miss his honeymoon.  His young wife is very lovely, so I completely understood that.  I volunteered to hold it for them until their return.   

When they return and pick up their gun this weekend, I'll show them the travel case and locks that I use.

Had a fun argument with a highly educated (read: indoctrinated) woman today... she offered a dozen, at least, faulted logic arguments against the private ownership of guns.  She sounded like a soundbite, word for word, from CNN talking points. 

When she was done she asked my thoughts "now", as if she had argued the most valid and water tight argument of all time.

I've waited for conversations like that for a long time. 

She had accused conservatives and gun rights activists, as she called them as if her side was passive and numerically superior, of not being capable of critical thought. 

I simply said "the BoR limits the government, not the governed "... she twisted her otherwise attractive face and made show of leaning down toward my inferior intellect by turning her head like a dog hearing a distant firetruck, all dramatic like, and asks "what is that supposed to mean? Are you trying to change the subject?"... "nope" says i... "same subject"...

She asked me to explain myself and I got to ask her "where are your critical thinking skills? Can you discover no relationship with what I said and the subject?"... again, face twisted, head cooked to the side, dramatically delivered bow to her inferior "uh, NO"...

Here comes the fun:

"The BoR outlines the governments limitations,  not per say our rights... therefore,  be it a bb gun or a cannon, it isn't the type of weapon/firearm being limited it is instead the governments express forbidding to infringe on that ownership/possession- the type of firearm, magazine capacity, caliber or color is irrelevant- the right to keep amd bear arms shall not be infringed places the limit on government not a limit on the right"...

Apparently, and because she told me, she hates me now.

I usually ask how often rifles of any kind are used in the commission of a gun crime versus other types.  I get figures like 80% of the time, often as not.

You need gun and crime experts if anyone is to come up with any "common sense gun laws", presuming such a thing exists.

Post by: Drew4UTk on July 07, 2021, 12:12:41 PM
People use guns in crimes to ensure they have the upper hand in terms of control.  They rarely and i mean it's excruciatingly rare an armed assailant confronts another armed person meaning them harm.  They cowardly seek instead a soft target.

Common sense gun law: require training for use of weapons In public schools which requires demonstrable efficiency before passing to the next grade level.  This includes legal deployment with case studies as well as range time and hands on usage.  Allow anyone who passes the grade a state sponsored discount at any participating gun store.  Arm the citizenry to at least a 70% saturation of people going armed, and watch violent crimes disappear like a fart in the wind. 

Gun laws aren't about limiting criminals.... theyre about disarming the true concern of the established and wannabe tyrants- a well regulated militia.  A People who can forcibly, if required, ensure the liberties described them are upheld and the limitations of government are enforced .

Obviously, many folks are scared of firearms and would resist being trained and carrying.  

A few folks I know wouldn't go anywhere near a gun.  One told me they would not visit any house that had firearms in it.  That's an adult, and probably not uncommon.

The media and political focus on "assault rifles" is just one more thing in defiance of actual facts.

Two years ago today I took executive action to reduce gun violence.
I’m still waiting for the legislature to do their part and pass safety measures. Here's what I'm pushing for:
▪️ Universal background checks
▪️ Lost/stolen reporting
▪️ Red flag law
▪️ Safe storage law

From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia
Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real
figures from Down Under.
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to
surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own
government, a program costing Australia taxpayers
more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria.....
lone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that
while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not
and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady
decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins andassaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public
safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in 'successfully ridding Australian society of guns....' You won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the
hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it's too late!
Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in?
WHY? You will need it.
FORWARD TO EVERYONE ON YOUR EMAIL LIST. [I DID]
DON'T BE A MEMBER OF THE SILENT MAJORITY.
BE ONE OF THE VOCAL MINORITY WHO WON 'T STAND FOR NONSENSE
AUSTRALIA: MORE VIOLENT CRIME DESPITE GUN BAN

CZ makes a fine firearm.

I watched a video the other day and the guy was talking about the differences between a pre and post 1964 Winchester Model 70. I’ve never handled nor shot a pre 1964 Winchester Model 70 but from what that guy was saying Winchester was the last holdout firearm manufacturer to begin making modernized (cheaper) rifles. Remington, Ruger, etc… made the switch after WWII and in doing so their rifles were affordable for the average American while the Winchester Model 70 was still out of range for the Average Americans wallet. Supposedly that’s why the pre 1964 (1963 and back) Winchester Model 70 is the holy grail of rifles. Ironically, I believe 1964 was also the first production year for the Remington 700 and until around 1967 or so all of the Remington 700’s were ADL types. My dad has a 1965 Remington 700.

SNIP:
Gun Control activist David Hogg can't seem to catch a break. His viewpoint that younger people are more anti-gun appears to be continuously rebuked by new reports from this post-COVID world.

Most recently, the NRA reported that the USA Clay Target League (USACTL) had its biggest year yet for student-athletes. Almost 40,000 will be participating in programs in the fall.

Title: Intelligence Bill Could Target Those Collecting Guns
Post by: DunkingDan on November 01, 2021, 05:00:24 PM
The proposed new "Gun Violence Prevention Through Financial Intelligence Act" could be about as creepy as the title sounds. 
Bicameral legislation introduced last week by gun control champions in Congress would require Treasury Department to provide guidance to banks under the guise of sniffing out domestic terrorism so they can "report suspicious activity" that includes buying guns and accessories. The measure was introduced last week by U.S. Reps. Madeleine Dean, D-Pa., and Jennifer Wexton, D-Va., in the House and U.S. Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., in the Senate.
"We cannot allow banks and financial institutions to turn a blind eye as shooters bank a pile of guns and ammunition in lead up to an attack," Markey said. "The Gun Violence Prevention Through Financial Intelligence Act will give us the guidance on how these institutions can help pinpoint and prevent gun violence across the country. I am proud to work with Representatives Dean and Wexton in advancing this gun violence prevention legislation."
The proposal was introduced into the House as H.R. 5764 (https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/5764?s=1&r=2) and the Senate as S. 3117. (https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/senate-bill/3117?r=1&s=1) The five-page bill  (https://www.markey.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/gun_violence_prevention_fin.pdf)would task the Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN (https://www.fincen.gov/about/mission) – a body used for national security through its collection of intelligence gleaned from the banking system – against those who may be buying guns and gun gear. The group would formulate and issue guidance to banks to be on the lookout for certain levels of purchases of firearms and related items, then sound an alarm. Markey's office compared his proposal to the current Suspicious Activity Reports filed today when banks see established signs of money laundering, human trafficking, terrorist financing, and other criminal activity.
Without surprise, a cavalcade of anti-gun groups including Everytown, March for Our Lives, the Newtown Action Alliance, and Guns Down America, supported the measure at its introduction. 
"Banks and financial institutions have a key role to play when it comes to identifying the warning signs of gun violence, such as trafficking or stockpiling weapons — but they can’t do this work if they don’t have the right data," said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown, in a statement issued through Dean's office. "We applaud Representatives Dean and Wexton, as well as Senator Markey, for introducing legislation to make sure that FinCEN is equipping banks with the tools and data they need to report suspicious activity, which will help prevent gun violence before it happens."
Meanwhile, the trade organization for the American firearms industry – which includes everyone from mom-and-pop local gun stores to publicly traded manufactures – said there is little redeeming in this new effort pushed by Dems on Capitol Hill with a history of endorsing gun bans and the organizations who support them. They compared the new initiative to the long-terminated Operation Choke Point (https://www.guns.com/news/2017/12/13/house-passes-bill-to-end-operation-choke-point) of the Obama era, which denied financial services to businesses they labeled “high risk,” including firearms-related vendors. 
"This idea of enlisting banks and financial institutions to do the bidding of gun control through 'woke' policies isn’t new, but that these lawmakers would take the illegal Operation Choke Point to the next level is a reprehensible assault on America’s financial privacy and Second Amendment rights," Mark Oliva, public affairs director of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, told Guns.com. "This is a brazen and alarming display of arrogance by these lawmakers to put law-abiding gun owners under an umbrella of suspicion and government monitoring simply for exercising their God-given right to keep and bear arms. This shows the contempt for which gun control groups, and the politicians that do their bidding, have for the very freedoms upon which this nation was founded."
Dean's H.R. 5764 has been referred to the Democrat-controlled House Committee on Financial Services while Markey's companion bill, S.3117, has been sent to the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs.

H.R. 5376, the Build Back Better Act, now includes $5 BILLION in so-called Community Violence Intervention, or CVI, funding. They claim the funding will prevent “gun violence,” but more likely it will be used enact gun control laws and infringe on our 2A rights.
This was obvious after Rep. Thomas Massie offered an amendment to the bill to ensure that none of the funding would be used to violate our Second Amendment rights without constitutional due process, but anti-gun Democrats BLOCKED it.
GOA has been tracking anti-gun spending bills, like Build Back Better, in Congress from the start. We have used our resources and supporters to rally pro-gun Members in Congress to defeat deceptive, anti-gun legislation and protect our rights.

A Shotgun armed Preteen vs. Illegal Alien Home Invaders.


Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11-year-old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home. 

It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay-shooting champion since she was nine.

Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12-gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old's knee-crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals.

When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive.

It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45-caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David 0'Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.

Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news?

An 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and herself against two murderous, illegal immigrants and she wins.

She is still alive. Now THAT is Gun Control!

Thought for the day:

Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist.'

Title: Trust the Science?
Post by: DunkingDan on December 06, 2021, 09:20:41 AM
Tucked away in the NRA-ILA archives is an Atlanta Constitution article from April 20, 1975. Titled, “Life-Style Disease: Atlanta’s CDC Plans to Examine Ways People Make Themselves Sick,” the item doesn’t mention firearms, but details how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention planned to expand its role beyond controlling actual communicable diseases like polio and smallpox and into all manner of personal conduct.

The Atlanta Constitution item assured readers, "The CDC itself by no means has plans to go out and force people to change life-styles. It will only act as a catalyst and clearing house for other interested agencies and organizations to help develop the concept that people would only have to change their ‘life-styles’ a little to be healthier."

Title: California Governor Pushes for Gun Laws Modeled on Texas Abortion Ban
Post by: DunkingDan on December 12, 2021, 11:36:34 AM
California Governor Gavin Newsom said he plans to use a controversial U.S. Supreme Court ruling on strict abortion curbs in Texas to design a law that would allow private citizens to sue some gun manufacturers, distributors and sellers.
The Supreme Court on Friday left in effect the Texas law that enables private citizens to sue anyone who performs or assists a woman in getting an abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy.
The Texas law was designed by the state's Republican-controlled legislature to avoid normal means of legal challenge, because rather than making state officials responsible for enforcement, it instead gave private individuals anywhere the right to sue doctors who provide abortion services in Texas and anyone else who "aids or abets" the process.
