Supreme Court Takes Major NRA Second Amendment Case from New York

by Ken Klukowski The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted review in the first Second Amendment case in almost a decade, a case supported by the National Rifle Association (NRA), and perhaps signaling what to expect from the new membership of the Supreme Court. New York law forbids residents from owning any handguns without a permit, and that permit allows the holder to possess guns only in their home or en route to or from one of seven shooting ranges in the city. A gun owner cannot transport a firearm outside the home for any other purpose, even if it...

Sen. Chase wears handgun to podium to present bills in committee

By PATRICK WILSON Richmond Times-Dispatch It’s not just her bills that are sparking attention. State Sen. Amanda Chase, R-Chesterfield, generated buzz on Tuesday by presenting them while wearing her .38-caliber revolver in a custom-made holster. The first-term senator — a fan of government transparency and opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment — said she wore the gun following an incident Monday in which Capitol Police were called after immigration-rights supporters confronted Sen. Dick Black, R-Loudoun. Chase said she always carries her gun in concealed fashion but decided Tuesday was a good day to carry openly when she presented her...

Russia Replacing Makarov with Pistol Capable of Piercing Titanium, Steel

by AWR Hawkins Russia is replacing the legendary Makarov handgun with a pistol capable of piercing titanium and steel. France 24 reports that the new pistol will be called “Udav.” Whereas the Makarov fires a 9×18 round, which is slightly smaller than the 9mm round so widely popular in the United States, the Udav will shoot the 9x21mm Gyurza, which will allow it to “pierce 1.4 mm of titanium or 4 mm of steel armor from a 100-meter distance.” The Gyurza round is also designed take away the advantages an enemy might otherwise gain from wearing body armor. The...

City of Austin Violated Texas Gun Law, Court Rules

by Mary Lou Lang Follow @MaryLouByrd12 The city of Austin violated Texas’ gun law by restricting licensed citizens from carrying concealed firearms at Austin City Hall, a court ruled today. The Travis County District Court ruled the city violated Texas’ open carry law and imposed a fine for each violation which was far below the fine the City of Austin could have faced. In today’s ruling the District Court agreed with the attorney general’s office and protected the Second Amendment in this case. The City of Austin violated the state’s open carry law on six occasions, the court indicated,...

President Bolsonaro Signs Decree to Broaden Law Abiding Brazilians’ Access to Firearms

by AWR Hawkins Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro kept his campaign promise by signing a decree ending the good cause requirement for a self-defense firearm purchase. NPR reports that Bolsonaro’s decree “[removes] the need to prove necessity” when purchasing a gun. NPR’s Philip Reeves observed that the red tape associated with a gun purchase often meant that Brazilians who needed guns for self-defense had their purchases denied because of their inability to prove the need: When he was campaigning to be president in front of crowds, Bolsonaro had a signature gesture. He’d hold his hand aloft and make his fingers into...

Anti-Gunners Push Law Limiting Ammo Purchases to 20 Bullets Per Month and 5 Round or Smaller Magazines

By Ben Marquis Emboldened by their strong showing the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats have begun to charge full steam ahead with absurd and unconstitutional proposals for strict gun control legislation. The Oregonian reported that strict gun control legislation was introduced in the Oregon state legislature by two Democrats — Sen. Rob Wagner and Rep. Andrea Salinas — in conjunction with the anti-gun youth activist group Students for Change, which arose in the wake of the tragic mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, in February 2018. The legislation, filed as SB 501, is blatantly unconstitutional on its...

Think Progress Is Furious That A Woman Defended Herself From Armed Robbery In Chicago

By Madeline Osburn According to Zack Ford, a woman must first determine the motives of her attacker before she has the right to defend herself. A 25-year-old woman in Chicago defended herself against an armed attacker with her own legally concealed weapon. But according to Think Progress’ LGBTQ Editor Zack Ford, “That’s not how justice works.” Police say the woman was approached by a 19-year-old man with a gun at a bus stop on Tuesday morning. After a struggle on the ground, the woman pulled her own gun on the man and fatally shot him in the neck. Yet,...
