Banning Long Guns From Young Adults Violates Public Accommodation

From Reason:

Oregon is one of the states that bans retailers from discriminating based on age against customers age 18 and above. (Some states don’t have such rules, or have an age 21 cutoff.) The Oregon statute says it generally applies to any person who is “of age,” which appears to mean 18, the age of majority in Oregon, at least for those products that are legal to sell to 18-to-20-year-olds (as long guns are in Oregon). Indeed, the statute specifically mentions alcohol and marijuana sellers for special treatment, but makes no such special provision for gun sellers

Amnesty International Says Self Defense Isn’t A Human Right

From Reason:

Back in the days when I was a monthly donor to AI, the group was known for its work in supporting political prisoners around the world. But for a long time AI has involved itself in many other issues, including global gun prohibition. Today, the leading international anti-gun organization is Control Arms, which was cofounded in 2003 by Amnesty International, Oxfam, and the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA).

CA Gun Owner Info To Be Used By Researchers

From Bearing Arms:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law last week A.B. 173, which among other things gives various academics, most of them very likely to be hostile to private gun ownership, access to all the information California collects about the state’s buyers of guns, gun parts, and ammunition.

David Yamane’s Chapter To “Understanding America’s Gun Culture 2nd Ed”

From David Yamane’s Blog:

Understanding America’s Gun Culture is part of a renaissance of interest in the academic study of guns over the past decade. In addition to individual books and articles, this volume sits alongside several other recent edited volumes (Carlson et al. 2019; Obert et al. 2019) and special issues of journals (Metz! as editor for Palgrave Communications in 2019; Steidley and Yamane as editors for Sociological Perspectives and Dowd-Arrow, Burdette, and Hill as editors for Sociological Inquiry, both forthcoming in 2021). All of these works contribute something to our understanding of American gun culture, to be sure. At the same time, they share in common some of the limitations that I have previously identified (Yamane 2017) and that others have highlighted for decades (O’Connor and Lizotte 1978; Wright 1995). Specifically, there is an excessive focus on gun culture as deviant and connected to violent
criminal behavior.

CNN Uses China To Defend Gun Control

From CNN:

“When my friend told me about the shooting, I thought it was the United States,” one person wrote on the Chinese social media platform Weibo. Another user wrote, “Using a gun to kill people in China? Am I watching an American movie?”

That disbelief widely reflects how rare gun crime is in China — in contrast to it being a daily reality in the US.

The difference is stark when it comes to public safety. Despite being the world’s most populous country, with 1.4 billion residents, China only records a few dozen gun crimes a year. And more broadly, violent crime has continued falling, reaching its lowest level in 20 years in 2020, according to state-run news outlet Xinhua.
