Gun Control And Red Flag Laws

From St. George News:

Two firearms-related tragedies have taken place in the past week. One is a matter of intense media focus while the other is being downplayed.

It’s a revealing example of the kind of statist blind faith that encourages true believers to trust the authorities to protect them even as it makes it as difficult and expensive as possible for the law-abiding to protect themselves. We’re supposed to believe that if enough people are willing to give up their freedom and the primary responsibility for their own personal safety, bad things will cease to happen.

Someone is trying to sell us a box of rocks.

Esquire Goes Full Orwell: Freedom Is Tyranny

From Esquire:

To be an American is to know that when you venture outside, you have a better chance than the citizen of any other country in the developed world of being shot by a complete and total stranger with easy access to incredibly powerful weaponry.

This is a world where the only true currency is fear. The National Rifle Association represents the interests of gun manufacturers, and those interests are to sell more guns. Nothing else is relevant.

“Reasonable Regulations” Fail Again

From Reason:

Early this morning, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof tweeted about last night’s mass shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, saying, “These kinds of incidents don’t happen in normal countries where there is some reasonable regulation of firearms, starting with universal background checks.” Yet California already requires background checks for all gun buyers, even when the transaction would be exempt from that requirement under federal law. In any case, ABC News reports that the gun used in the attack, a .45-caliber Glock 21 pistol, was “legally purchased,” which means the perpetrator did not have a disqualifying criminal or psychiatric record, as is typically true of mass shooters.

California Sheriff Accused Of Discriminating Gun Policies

From Townhall:

Since that tragedy almost three years ago, Riverside County has had a very steady flow of applications coming in. So much so that Sheriff Stan Sniff hired more employees to handle the CCW backlog, which sat at a two-year await, as of this past April.

A resident and five pro-gun groups have filed a lawsuit against Riverside County and Sheriff Sniff for his concealed carry license policy and practices that, the plaintiffs allege, are unconstitutional.

States Moving To Restrict Ammo

From The Federalist:

Ammunition laws are provided in several different flavors, all of which leave a bad taste in the mouth. Some, like those in D.C. and New York City, criminalize the actual possession of ammunition. Others, like legislation that just survived legal challenge in California, either tax ammunition or attempt to track it through microstamping–think tiny, engraved numbers. Although billed as measures to curb violent crime, the reality is that these laws are practically incapable of doing anything but raising costs and giving headaches to lawful gun owners.

California Continues Assault On Guns

From Guns.com:

In all, eight bills were advanced by the respective Senate and Assembly appropriations committees that would add new requirements to concealed carry licenses, expand the use of lifetime gun bans, make it easier to file so-called “red flag” firearm seizure orders, ration gun sales and strip gun rights from those under age 21. Making it past the fiscal deadline for proposed legislation, each now moves to the chamber floor.
