Levi’s Donates To Gun Control Movement

From Guns.com:

Iconic jeans maker Levi Strauss doubled down on its support for gun control Tuesday, pledging some $1 million to support groups to advance the cause. “You may wonder why a company that doesn’t manufacture or sell guns is wading into this issue, but for us, it’s simple. Americans shouldn’t have to live in fear of gun violence,” said Levi’s president and chief executive Chip Bergh in an op-ed published in Fortune. “It’s an issue that affects all of us—all generations and all walks of life.”

Baseball Player In Hot Water For Pro 2A Tweet

From The Federalist:

Yet Red Sox president Sam Kennedy told The Boston Herald that the team had spoken to Martinez about being more cautious on social media. The question is: Why should an athlete be subjected to warnings from his team’s owner—or a nonsensical controversy ginned up by some reporters—for showing appreciation of an enduring American value?

Judge Abridges First Amendment

From Washington Free Beacon:

“Judge Lasnik’s ruling involves some of the most amazing legal acrobatics I’ve ever seen,” Alan Gottlieb, founder of the group, told the Free Beacon. “He has accepted the plaintiffs’ claim that the CAD files are only available on the so-called ‘Dark Web,’ but that’s not at all accurate. The files are available on the normal Internet, and now, thanks to the court, they are available by links in the court record. It is particularly disturbing that Judge Lasnik admitted that the court has decided to not fully explore all the issues because of its limited record, while presuming that we have a First Amendment right to disseminate the CAD files. Then he caps it off by saying that our First Amendment right is only abridged, but not abrogated. That’s like saying the government is only stepping on your neck, they haven’t completely crushed your windpipe.”

“If this case had to do with anything besides guns, we all know that the court would stop this nonsense in a heartbeat and we wouldn’t even be talking about it,” he told the Free Beacon. But because this involves publishing information about guns, suddenly the First Amendment is being treated differently, because the Second Amendment is somehow involved.”

Washington Gun Control Measure Allowed Despite Problems

From MyNorthwest.com:

The billionaires behind I-1639 — at least two of whom apparently enjoy armed guards for themselves — didn’t bother to put the full text of the measure on the initiatives people signed: it-is-not-there. That is not even questionable. There is the proposed law and there is what people signed: the two documents are-not-the-same. Here, used with the permission of WeTheGoverned.com, is the initiative people signed. The red ink indicates where the language has been altered, ignored or changed. This is-not-the-full-text of the measure.

ACLU Defends NRA In New York Case

From ACLU:

In the ACLU’s view, targeting a nonprofit advocacy group and seeking to deny it financial services because it promotes a lawful activity (the use of guns) violates the First Amendment. Because we believe the governor’s actions, as alleged, threaten the First Amendment rights of all advocacy organizations, the ACLU on Friday filed a friend-of-the-court brief supporting the NRA’s right to have its day in court.

Is Gun Control Dead?

From Mises.org:

In present times, gun rights have been under assault at the state and federal level. With blatant calls for the repeal of the Second Amendment and a bipartisan consensus rallying around the need for sweeping gun control legislation, gun rights appeared to be on the chopping block.

Despite the roadbloacks ahead, Defense Distributed has given concerned owners a bit of breathing room and is opening up new avenues for human freedom.

Gun Companies To Leave CT

From Guns.com:

High taxes and strict laws encourage gun manufacturers to abandon Connecticut, according to a new report published last month.

“It’s directly related to regulations,”said Mark Rydzy, owner of the Pauway Company, during an interview with the Connecticut Post in July. “Every time a new series of gun laws goes into effect, it ends up changing everything.”

Corporate Gun Control

From National Review:

Titans of American banking and communication are taking steps to restrict the use of their funds or platforms by gun makers, gun-rights advocates, and others. The threat is just now emerging, but it may be as great a danger to gun rights as it is to the culture of free speech in this nation, and indeed the two are linked.

Judge Blocks Washington Ballot Initiative

From Guns.com:

Thurston County Superior Court Judge James Dixon ruled that the petitions circulated by paid canvassing groups working for the Alliance for Gun Responsibility failed to meet state requirements for readability and did not contain a full and correct copy of the printed measure — which Second Amendment advocates characterized as using “microscopic” text. Dixon said his decision was an easy one.

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.
