Guns in America: Why I think it's time for California to stop fighting Peruta vs. San Diego

NRA Feed - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 19:00
On Thursday, July 24, 2014, Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr. issued a Summary Judgment Order affirming that the 2nd Amendment confers a right to "bear arms" outside the home. The order was nothing short of devastating to the District of Columbia which has been resisting and delaying compliance with legal decisions on this issue for many years. The order was plain. The government and police of the District of Columbia were told to cease and desist from enforcing all laws regarding carrying weapons until such time that an acceptable and constitutionally compliant set of laws providing for the carrying of weapons outside the home for D.C. residents and non-residents are put into place. That's a hammer blow in magnitude rarely seen and it's a wake-up call to other jurisdictions resisting similar decisions on other parts of the country.

Court Declares District of Columbia’s Ban on Bearing Arms Unconstitutional

NRA Feed - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 10:00
The nation's capitol, long infamous for its strict gun control, is now one step closer to being forced to comply with the Second Amendment. On Saturday, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia issued a decision in Palmer v. District of Columbia, which challenged D.C.'s ban on carrying firearms in public for self-defense. The court's opinion prohibits D.C. officials from enforcing certain provisions of local law that effectively prevent the carrying of firearms in public for self-defense. Whether the District will seek further review of the court's decision remains to be seen. In the meantime, however, D.C. must now join all 50 states in the union in recognizing, at least to some degree, the fundamental right to bear arms under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. We will provide further updates as more information becomes available.

After Legislative Defeat, Gun Owners Aim For Election Successes

NRA Feed - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 04:00
Frustrated with politicians who enacted the post-Newtown gun restrictions, Second Amendment rights activists head to the polls this year determined to channel their anger into electoral success. Their goals range from pickups in the General Assembly by "pro-2A" — pro-Second Amendment — candidates to electing a governor who would sign a repeal of Senate Bill 1160, the sweeping gun control legislation enacted in response to the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Florida Alert! Two Federal Courts UPHOLD gun rights in separate opinions

NRA Feed - Sun, 07/27/2014 - 19:00
On Friday, July 25, 2013, in a 2-1 opinion the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta issued a strong opinion upholding Florida's law to protect the privacy rights of firearms owners and stop anti-gun doctors from interrogating parents and children about gun ownership.  It is a huge win in a case the media has named the "Docs & Glocks" case.  On Saturday, July 26, 2014 the U.S. District Court for Washington D.C. ruled that the D.C. ban on gun carry rights was unconstitutional.

Bans on lead ammunition are misguided and ineffective

NRA Feed - Sun, 07/27/2014 - 19:00
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is reopening a debate over the safety of lead ammunition used by hunters. Because faulty science has been used to ban lead ammunition in California, it is important to get the facts out early so Oregonians aren't similarly duped into adopting a ban that could do more harm than good.

US 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Rules in Favor of the State of Florida and Law-Abiding Gun Owners Over Activist Doctors and the Gun Control Lobby

NRA Feed - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 14:00
The United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit has ruled that doctors do not have the right to ask patients if they own a firearm when unnecessary to a patient's care. This ruling is a significant defeat for the gun control lobby and its allies. The Florida chapters of the American Academies of Pediatrics and American College of Physicians, along with a number of other groups and individuals backed by the anti-gun community, filed this lawsuit against the State of Florida after Governor Rick Scott signed a bill backed by the National Rifle Association in 2011.

Boston Top Cop: City Residents Do Not "Need" to Own Shotguns, Rifles

NRA Feed - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 09:00
On July 23, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans told Boston Public Radio (WGBH) that residents of Boston do not need shotguns or rifles.  I don't agree with that. Having long guns--rifles and shotguns--especially here in the city of Boston. I think we should have, as the local authority, some say in the matter. [And] the federal [government] doesn't really allow us to have the discretion that we want in these particular cases. ...For the most part, nobody in the city needs a shotgun. Nobody needs a rifle.

The Ordeal of Shaneen Allen

NRA Feed - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 08:00
In October of 2013, a Pennsylvania resident named Shaneen Allen drove into New Jersey’s Atlantic County and was pulled over by police for an “unsafe lane change.” When the detaining officer arrived at her car window, Allen informed him that she was carrying a concealed firearm, and presented her Pennsylvania carry license as proof of eligibility. Unbeknownst to her at the time, however, was that New Jersey is among the 20 states that do not recognize Pennsylvania’s permit. In consequence, she was arrested. If convicted of the charges that the state has elected to bring, she will be locked in prison for up to a decade.
