JSD Supply Wants Injunction Against ATF

From Ammoland:

JSD Supply sued the ATF after the Bureau issued the company a cease-and-desist order demanding that it stop selling parts and kits on its website. The government insisted that selling unfinished firearms frames and parts constituted selling unserialized firearms without a federal firearms license (FFL), even if the customer purchased the items separately. The ATF called this “structuring.”

Senator Lankford Introduces Pistol Brace Protection Act

From Bearing Arms:

Senator James Lankford (R-OK) is standing up for Oklahomans’ Second Amendment right to own and use pistol braces without burdensome regulation, registration, and taxation. Last week, Lankford introduced the Pistol Brace Protection Act. Lankford’s bill would gut an upcoming final rule by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) by exempting pistol braces from regulation under the National Firearms Act (NFA). The bill eliminates subjective standards that exist in federal law that have allowed ATF to reclassify firearms under the NFA, and guarantees that law-abiding gun owners will not have to register, destroy, or surrender their pistol brace.

The Ironman Of Shooting Matches?

From The Gun Writer:

Over the course of two days, 35 shooters ran and rucked more than 25 miles, while carrying 35-pound packs, carbines, handguns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and the occasional 20-pound sandbag. They navigated through a series of obstacles, performed one-man CQB and engaged multiple targets from 16 different shooting positions, including shooting from moving vehicles.

Savage Introduces Micro Compact Pistol

From Guns.com:

The guns, polymer-framed striker-fired micro-compacts intended for carry and self-defense, use a serialized chassis that allows it to easily swap across a range of various grip frames with black, gray, and FDE modules available at launch, all with interchangeable backstraps to adjust grip size. The Stance has a 3.2-inch stainless-steel barrel, making it just slightly shorter than the Glock 43 and more akin in size to the FN 503 and Sig P365 in that metric. The new Savage pistols have 7, 8, and 10-round magazine options.

What’s Best For Home Defense?

From Guns.com:

Which is best for home defense: pistol, rifle, or shotgun? It’s an age-old question, but why? Possibly because every 30 seconds a burglary takes place in the U.S. That is a lot of home invasions even when you consider the fact that not all burglaries are in the home. Also, if a home invasion is not for a burglary, then the situation is probably much more critical.

The Four Must Have Items For Everyday Carry

From The Truth About Guns:

In order to address many of the frequently asked questions, several years ago I came up with a list that I dubbed “The Fundamental Four” of EDC. The Fundamental Four items that every armed citizen should have on their person before they walk out of the front door are; something Lethal, something Sharp, something Bright, and something Medical.

Additional Handgun Skills To Increase Your Competence

From USA Carry:

Many shooters take a basic handgun training course and/or complete the fundamental concealed carry licensing or permit class and stop at that point. Sadly, I have learned that several of our beginning students have done this, even after I have encouraged them to continue their handgun training to the next level. And I am not talking about only the mechanics of shooting, like proper grip, stance, sight alignment, sight picture, trigger control, follow-through, and a few use of deadly force laws. I know I felt that I learned so much after my day-long introductory concealed carry course that I felt that I was ready to defend myself in deadly-force situations and did not need further training on the basic mechanics or other skills.

Building An AR-9 Pistol

From The Truth About Guns:

Over the last year, I’ve made a solidly-performing 9mm polymer framed pistol, a fun AR-15 style rifle and a great “parts-bin” AR10 in 6.5 Creedmoor based on kits from 80% Arms and Brownells. For the fourth installment of this loose series, I put together the 80% Arms AR-9 GLOCK magazine compatible braced pistol.

48 Senators Send Letter To Biden About Pistol Braces

From The Federalist:

In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, all of the Republicans in the Senate, except for Rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, demand that the Biden administration “correct the mistake” and walk back the proposal which the legislators allege was justified on claims”without evidence” that people simply wanted to avoid paying for NFA items.

Pistol Braces And The Heller Case

From The Federalist:

However, as explained hereHeller erred in at least two respects. First, it misinterpreted the Supreme Court’s decision in U.S. v. Miller (1939). Miller indicated that the right to keep and bear arms includes all arms that “have some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia,” such as those that are “part of the ordinary military equipment” and any others the use of which “could contribute to the common defense.”

Miller also noted that militiamen were historically “expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time,” so Heller ignored the discussion of military and militia arms and instead concluded that Miller limited the right to arms to those “in common use.”
