Have Gun Rights Been Helped By New Owners?

From Reason:

But the opportunity has passed for the restrictions he peddles as “common sense reforms.” In an era of political instability and distrust in government, Americans of varying political beliefs are purchasing guns in record numbers. And those millions of new weapons and their owners are bound to remain beyond the reach of politicians’ wish lists of restrictive laws.

New Congressman Going After IRS and ATF

From Fox News:

Georgia Rep.-elect Andrew Clyde arrived in the nation’s capital with the unique distinction of already having federal legislation named after him.

The gun store owner gained prominence for fighting back when the IRS suddenly seized nearly $1 million from his bank account in 2013.

Not only did Clyde win his civil asset forfeiture case against the IRS, but he got Congress to pass a law last year so the IRS could never do it again.

Potential Biden Gun Restrictions

From The Federalist:

Out of the myriad options a Biden administration will have to infringe on our constitutional protections, which will they choose first? Based on my experience with clients and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (AFT) as a firearms attorney, some recent news events, and a bit of firearm-industry intuition, I think the first things a Biden administration will do regarding guns if given the chance are:

  • Banning pistol braces
  • Banning homemade firearms/80 percent receivers
  • Banning online firearm and ammunition sales

Shortly after the first bans, and if he has the help of the Senate, the next gun control measures will likely be:

  • Banning “assault weapons”
  • Banning “high capacity” magazines
  • Requiring universal background checks

Mess Of An Article Can’t Reconcile Gun Rights And Minority Rights

From Huckmag.com:

Feral says a ban would be “low-hanging fruit” for Biden’s base, but the implications might be anything but progressive. “If they make assault weapons a National Firearms Act regulated item, you’re talking about $1000 in tax stamps alone [to buy an assault rifle].” In her view, this doesn’t keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people – it keeps them out of the hands of poor people.

As NRA Influence Wanes New Groups Are Stepping Up

From Mother Jones:

Several groups have already ramped up their operations over the past year, such as Gun Owners of America, a national group that former Texas Rep. Ron Paul once called “the only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington.” Van Cleave says the VCDL has “been working quite a bit with” Gun Owners of America on both state and national issues. “I think what’s going to happen is as the NRA ends up being pretty crippled for a while, there are other organizations that are going to step forward,” he says. “There’s not going to be a void there, somebody’s going to fill that.”

How The Soviets Took The Guns

From The Truth About Guns:

The only exception was made for hunters who were allowed to possess smoothbore weapons. Gun licenses, however, were strictly regulated and only issued by the NKVD, the police organization known for its role in Joseph Stalin’s political purges.

It was only a matter of time before Russia became an almost totally gun-free nation. Some people believed Russians would regain their right to own guns after the collapse of the Soviet Union but despite firearms becoming available on the black market during the 90s, the new government did not risk liberalizing the gun market.

A Cuban’s Warning About Gun Registration

From The Truth About Guns:

Son, I see things are playing out here in America just as they did back in Cuba when I was a child. Did you know your grandfather had a .44 magnum revolver? Your grandfather had lots of firearms including a western-style lever action rifle, a .38 revolver and a few shotguns.

The Left Continues To Misinterpret Gun Culture

From The New Republic:

Rarely do the police chiefs or concealed carriers whom Carlson interviews stop to consider if the ubiquity of firearms in America is the source of that constant sense of danger. Instead, their worldview is guided by twin instincts: what Carlson calls “gun militarism” and “gun populism.” Gun militarism, espoused by essentially every chief she interviewed, is synonymous with the infamous “Warrior Cop” training that conditions police to think of the world as filled with enemies at every corner who must be overpowered at all costs, necessitating an arms race with criminals. Gun populism, meanwhile, aligns with the pro-gun dogma that lawful gun owners carrying in public make America safer either by providing quick responses to threats when police aren’t present or by deterring crime in the first place. One is a top-down approach to meeting an ever-present threat, the other bottom-up. Most of the chiefs Carlson interviewed argued that gun militarism and populism complement one another.
