US Attorney Drops Attempt To Gag Journalist

From The Truth About Guns:

It seems AUSA Taylor’s motion for prior restraint…wasn’t well-received by the trial judge. At all.

In fact, as we just heard from one of the involved parties, the judge’s displeasure (probably combined with the fact that Crump was well-represented by very able counsel) was such that Taylor apparently thought better of her clearly unconstitutional, half-baked motion and withdrew it.

Permit-less Carry Hasn’t Stopped Citizens Taking Gun Classes

From Bearing Arms:


Though lawful gun owners in the Sunshine State no longer need to possess a state-issued concealed carry license in order to lawfully bear arms, firearms instructors in Florida say they’re still seeing plenty of interest from gun owners who are signing up for training. That doesn’t surprise me too much, since the those who choose to carry a firearm for self-defense have a vested interest in being comfortable and competent when they do so, but it’s still a good sign as well as a refutation of the gun control advocates who predicted that scores of Floridians would decide to start carrying without the slightest bit of training simply because they can.

Dem Congresswoman Violates Election Law In Front Of Media

From Ammoland:

The reported incident took place at Jan Kaminis Platt Regional Library in South Tampa. Castor, who was not there to cast a vote, reportedly entered through the exit with a news media crew embedded with her campaign.

Castor violated the 150-foot exclusion zone, which prohibits candidates and campaign officials from campaigning at polling locations and is a violation of the law. Additionally, walking in through the exit is also in itself a violation of Florida election laws.

Press Attacks Sheriff Who Told Citizens To Shoot Home Invaders

From Ammoland:

During a press conference after Harris’ arrest, Sheriff Johnson discussed the homeowner who had fired at Harris, who never came forward.

“I guess they think that they did something wrong, which they did not. If somebody’s breaking into your house, you’re more than welcome to shoot them in Santa Rosa County. We prefer that you do, actually,” Johnson said. “So, whoever that was, you’re not in trouble. Come see us. We have a gun safety class we put on every other Saturday. And if you take that, you’ll shoot a lot better and hopefully you’ll save the taxpayers money.”

Individuals, the legislation states, do not have to be guilty for the FBI director and the Joint Terrorism Task Force to be alerted when they attempt to purchase or receive a transferred firearm. The U.S. attorney general is also notified and retains the power to stall the process for up to 10 business days and file an emergency petition to halt the gun procedure until a court can rule on it as long as the individual is notified.

NRA Challenges Florida Ban On Adults 18-20 Buying Guns

From NRA-ILA:

In its initial complaint, NRA made clear that Florida’s age restriction violated the U.S. Constitution on multiple counts. First, NRA noted that the ban was unconstitutional on its face – as the “ban infringes upon, and imposes an impermissible burden upon, the Second Amendment rights​.” Second, the complaint made clear that the new prohibition was an unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment as applied to young women ages 18-20, who, as a cohort, are responsible for a minuscule percentage of overall violent crime.
