2nd Amendment Under Fire
American educators are on the lookout for a new and growing danger to America’s schoolchildren: “Level 2 lookalike firearms.” That’s bureaucratic-educator speak for a finger. According to The Columbus Dispatch, a fifth-grade student at Devonshire Alternative Elementary in Columbus, Ohio, was suspended from school for three days last week for allegedly fashioning his thumb and […]
As New Jersey lawmakers continue on a quest for ever-stricter gun laws, the State Assembly is readying discussion over a bill to reduce maximum magazine capacity from 15 to 10 rounds. Because the bill covers both fixed and detachable magazines, it could prohibit at least 43 common rifles, including popular .22 caliber models. The Association […]
In the early morning hours of April 19, 1775, English Gen. Thomas Gage’s troops moved toward Concord, Mass., in an effort to capture guns, gunpowder and lead stored there.
When they reached Lexington, Mass., those troops were met by about 60 to 70 Minutemen mustered in response to reports the British troops were advancing. The Minutemen were told to stand fast, not firing but not cowering in the face of what was considered the mightiest army of the day.
On Monday, the Supreme Court rejected two National Rifle Association challenges to laws that ban handgun permits for people under 21.
A bill that would allow South Carolinians to carry guns openly or concealed without first receiving the State’s sanction through a permit was killed by Republicans. It failed to advance out of the State’s Judiciary Committee.
As we told you Monday, Connecticut gun owners are ignoring that State’s unConstitutional gun law requiring the owners of “military-style” rifles to register their firearms with the State police and receive an “assault weapons” certificate in order to legally own the weapons. The law called for the registration to be completed by Jan. 1. But as of last week, only about 50,000 applications for the certificate had been filed, meaning as many as 350,000 Connecticut gun owners have decided to become felons under State law rather than register their weapons.
Gun maker Remington announced a plan to invest $110 million in a manufacturing facility in Huntsville, Ala., today — a clear signal to the ruling class in its home State of New York that it’s setting down roots in a political climate that values the 2nd Amendment. At the start of its lengthy, 24-State search […]
Perhaps as many as 300,000 Connecticut gun owners are fighting unpopular anti-2nd Amendment legislation in the State by simply ignoring a new law which requires all owners of “military-style” rifles to register the firearms with State police. Meanwhile, gun-grabbers in the State are aghast that hundreds of thousands of residents would rather become Class D felons than abide by unConstitutional bureaucratic demands.
An attempt by San Diego County to pick and choose which of its residents are allowed to hold a concealed carry permit was refuted Thursday by an appeals court, which ruled that the county’s take on a Statewide “good cause” rule infringed on citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th […]
There is no logic behind bans on so-called “assault weapons.” Bans are simply an effort by the gun grabbers to capitalize on the irrational fears of a few simpletons — who find certain weapons scary looking — in order to create a category of weapons and gun owners that gun grabbers can demonize in their unending march to disarm Americans.
That is never so evident as in New York.
