Documents Reveal Additional Victims of Fast and Furious in the U.S., Continued DOJ Cover-Up

Thu, 10/16/2014 - 19:00
Eric Holder may have announced his resignation as U.S. attorney general, but his legacy of mismanagement, incompetence, and the politicization of federal law enforcement will continue to plague Americans for some time to come.  That became even more evident this week with further revelations about Operation Fast and Furious based on information of which the Justice Department was presumably aware but withheld from the American people.

London Calling: UK Gun Owners Now Subject to Surprise Warrantless Firearm Storage "Inspections"

Thu, 10/16/2014 - 19:00
A new firearm policy from the United Kingdom Home Office, put in force on October 15, has accelerated the once-proud nation's devolution into a police state.  The Home Office's October 2014 "Guide on Firearms Licensing Law" adds a new rule allowing for police to conduct warrantless surprise inspections of a gun owner's firearm storage practices.  As bad as that is, what's far worse is that the President of the United States cites England's gun control policies as a model for America to follow.

Corps' Regulation Violates Core Right of Self-Defense

Thu, 10/16/2014 - 19:00
A federal regulation that banned the use of firearms by law-abiding citizens for self-defense purposes on property administered by, or subject to, the control of the Army Corps of Engineers violates the Second Amendment and is unconstitutional, according to a ruling this week by Chief Judge B. Lynn Winmill of the United States District Court for the District of Idaho.  This decision, granting the plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment and granting a permanent injunction, follows an earlier ruling in January issuing a preliminary injunction.

Idaho Woman Wins: U.S. Army Corps Gun Ban Unconstitutional

Wed, 10/15/2014 - 19:00
 An Idaho woman who is barred from carrying a functional firearm for self-defense when she visits federal recreational facilities prevailed today with the ruling of an Idaho federal district court that the federal government ban on firearms violates the Second Amendment.  Elizabeth E. Morris of Nez Perce County is licensed to carry a concealed weapon, regularly carries a concealed weapon, and often seeks to recreate on lands managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Because Corps of Engineers regulations ban functional firearms, even while camped in tents, Ms. Morris is subject to criminal prosecution if she attempts to exercise her Second Amendment rights.  Alan C. Baker, a firearms instructor and a resident of Idaho’s Latah County, is a co-plaintiff in the suit, which was filed in August 2013 in Idaho federal district court.  The Corps of Engineers did not respond to requests from attorneys for Ms. Morris and Mr. Baker, Mountain States Legal Foundation (MSLF), seeking an exemption from its firearm ban, a ban that has not changed since the landmark Heller ruling.

District of Columbia: City Council to Consider “License to Carry a Pistol Amendment Act of 2014” Tomorrow

Wed, 10/15/2014 - 09:25
Tomorrow, October 16, at 10:30 a.m., the DC City Council will hold a public hearing to consider Bill 20-930, the “License to Carry a Pistol Amendment Act of 2014.”  Despite sounding like a step in the right direction, this act’s name is deceptive.  Its language is rife with bureaucratic hurdles, including long mandatory training requirements, as well as requiring applicants to undergo the already restrictive and burdensome process of registering a firearm in the District.

Shooting the foot in Biden’s mouth

Mon, 10/13/2014 - 19:00
Joe Biden’s ability to say, unfiltered, whatever thought pops into his head is his charm. He’s everybody’s favorite crazy uncle. Barack Obama didn’t even mind when ol’ Joe once described him as “the first mainstream African-American [presidential candidate] who is articulate and bright and clean.”
