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.”

The Powers That Be Are Trying Everything To Stop Defense Distributed

From Lawfare Blog:

Cody Wilson’s legal battle to post his plastic gun schematic is awful, pitting speech values against human lives, raising the specter of more mass shootings, and casting a dark shadow on what should be the bright new technology of 3-D printing. In times like these, it’s tempting to wish that a few magic words could make the schematic—and all its legal and moral baggage—simply disappear.

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?

The Militia Clause

From Mises.org:

Fearful that a large federal military could be used to destroy the freedoms of the states themselves, Anti-Federalists and other Americans fearful of centralized power in the US government designed the Second Amendment accordingly. It was designed to guarantee that the states would be free to raise and train their own militias as a defense against federal power, and as a means of keeping a defensive military force available to Americans while remaining outside the direct control of the federal government.

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.”

Gun Free Zone Morality

From FEE.org:

By taking away our means of self-defense and refusing to provide a suitable substitute, gun-free zones violate our right to life.

Our right to defend ourselves isn’t a function of the risk of our being victimized. Rights are grounded in the dignity of the individual, not statistical averages. Self-defense is a liberty that I have by virtue of being a human being. I don’t lose that right just because the circumstances in which I will need to use it are statistically rare. Otherwise, this same argument could be used to rule out any kind of self-defense.

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.
