NRA Feed - Thu, 11/20/2014 - 19:00
In general, carrying a cell phone and firearm on Shabbat is not permitted according to Jewish law, but Yosef ruled that the possibility that such items could help save lives overrides these prohibitions.“In light of the current danger, I think that anyone who has a gun license should carry it [his gun] on Shabbat... There should also be a telephone available in synagogues... If the premises are big, then there should be two or three,” Yosef said.

California: Case targets state’s ban on gun placards

NRA Feed - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 19:00
In a 1964 U.S. Supreme Court case involving a movie-theater owner convicted of an Ohio law banning the showing of obscene movies, Justice Potter Stewart famously said he could not “intelligibly” define obscenity, “but I know it when I see it.” People still use that line to showcase the imprecision and irrationality of many laws.How do we convict someone of something so hard to define? We often know when we see other absurdities, also, including an archaic statute now subject of a gun-related lawsuit filed this month in federal court. California Penal Code 26820 bans gun stores from displaying signs — visible from outside the premises — picturing handguns.
