Interstate Purchase Ban Challenged

From Guns.com:

The legal challenge came from a Washington, D.C. couple — Andrew and Tracey Hanson — who tried to buy handguns from a federally licensed firearms dealer in Texas but could not due to federal law adopted in the 1960s. Together with FFL holder Frederic Mance, the couple joined with gun rights advocates of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in taking the government on, arguing that since the advent of federal background check systems the law makes little sense.

Constitutional Carry Moving Forward

From The Truth About Guns:

State Rep. Jonathan Stickland has filed a bill to allow “Constitutional Carry” — to let any Texan who legally owns a handgun carry it openly or concealed without first getting a permit— across the state.

After years of unsuccessful attempts, supporters of legislation that would allow people to carry concealed handguns without a permit in South Dakota anticipate revived prospects for the conservative prize once GOP Gov.-elect Kristi Noem takes office in January.

Texas AG Allows Armed Election Judges

From Bearing Arms:

Two things tell us that we live in a free society: elections and private firearm ownership. Neither of those things really takes place in despotic societies. Some might create the trappings of democracy, but it’s funny how often the party in power wins those elections despite widespread opposition. None, however, are big on guns.

Texas Blocks Profs’ Lawsuit

From Guns.com:

The panel for the 5th U.S. Circuit on Thursday upheld Texas’ campus carry law, affirming a lower court ruling from last July. The judges found the professors could not prove their case, which largely centered on First Amendment grounds. The faculty members, three female liberal arts professors whose classwork sometimes touches on controversial subjects such as abortion and unwanted pregnancies, argued the carry of guns in their classes would chill open and frank discussion, thus hindering their right to free speech.

Jamaican Immigrant and Open Carry Supporter

From The Truth About Guns:

I was born in Jamaica and I came to Texas in 2002. I chose to come here because of the gun laws. I believe in the right to protect yourself: if you’re legally able to carry a firearm, you should do so. A lot more people would be alive today if they could exercise their Second Amendment rights, and I firmly believe that we should do that, as long as we’re legally able.

Also, when I was growing up, I used to watch TV, and I saw a lot of ‘cowboy and Indian’ movies about Texas. I really wanted to come here! So, when I had a choice to go to school in Florida, California, or Texas, there was no question.

Texas Sheriff Issues Statement in Wake of Shooting

From Breitbart:

With the recent tragedy in Florida, I wanted to make clear my policy on responding to an active shooter. All commissioned Deputies, if you respond to an active shooter you are expected to take immediate action. We do not stage and wait for SWAT, we do not take cover in a parking lot, and we do not wait for another agency. We go in and do our duty. We go in to engage and stop the shooter and save lives.
