Arkansas AG Wants ATF Bodycams From Raid

From Ammoland:

Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin has serious questions for ATF officials about their botched March 19 SWAT team raid, which killed Little Rock Airport executive director, Bryan Malinowski, in his home. And if ATF has bodycam footage of the fatal raid, Griffin wants to see that, too.

Washington State Mag Ban Unconstitutional

From The Truth About Guns:

A Washington state judge declared the state’s prohibition on high-capacity ammunition magazines unconstitutional, sparking immediate appeal actions that keep the law in force for the present, as reported by The Seattle Times and cited by the Associated Press. Cowlitz County Superior Court Judge Gary Bashor’s ruling on Monday challenged the 2022 law, which bans magazines holding more than 10 rounds, on grounds of violating both the U.S. and Washington state constitutions. However, the law remains active following an emergency appeal by Attorney General Bob Ferguson, upheld by the state Supreme Court.

2 Attorneys Give The Case Against “Assault Weapons Ban”

From Bearing Arms:

Tench Coxe, a friend of Madison and himself a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, in discussing the Second Amendment, wrote “civil rulers . . . may attempt to tyrannize,” and rulers might use the power of the military to injure fellow citizens, thus, “the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.” He had earlier also written that “Congress ha[s] no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American.”

Inconsistent Gun Rulings By Democrat Judges

From American Greatness:

Nothing better illustrates the left’s bizarre, sinister, and downright lawless attitude than two back-to-back gun control decisions from two leftist courts in two infamously blue states, Illinois and Hawaii. Within a single month, “progressive” judges decided that law-abiding Americans do not have the right to freely bear arms, but non-citizens living here illegally do. Yes, you read that correctly.

The War Over The Second Amendment

From Zero Hedge:

Thomas Jefferson in particular was vehemently opposed to a standing federal army. Like the rest of the Founders, he believed it was the responsibility of a citizens militia of ordinary Americans to defend their state, or in the rarest of circumstances, the entire country from an outside threat. He also made it clear that an armed citizenry was the best defense against government tyranny. As president, Jefferson slashed military spending. He noted, “Standing armies [are] inconsistent with [a people’s] freedom and subversive of their quiet.” In 1789, the author of the Declaration of Independence wrote, “There are instruments so dangerous to the rights of the nation and which place them so totally at the mercy of their governors….Such an instrument is a standing army.” No wonder he’s now a hopeless dead White “racist.”

Louisiana Becomes Permitless Carry State

From The Truth About Guns:

The bill, which passed with a 75-28 vote, grants legal gun owners aged 18 and older the ability to carry concealed firearms in public without the need for a permit. The landmark decision is poised to be signed into law by Governor Jeff Landry (R), who has vocally supported the measure, emphasizing that it aligns with the constitutional right to bear arms without government permission.

2nd Amendment Absolutist, Brandon Herrera Goes To Runoff In TX-23

From Bearing Arms:

We highlighted the GOP primary in TX-23 on Tuesday as one of the most interesting races to watch on Super Tuesday, and it did indeed produce a major upset. Incumbent Rep. Tony Gonzales is could still win the nomination, but after failing to reach the 50 percent threshold in the primary he’s now heading for a runoff against Brandon “The AK Guy” Herrera, who came in a solid second in the five-candidate field.

Rep Jordan Wants Answers To New ATF Rule “Engaged in the business”

From Bearing Arms:

Cleveland.com was the first to report on Jordan’s letter, which requests that Dettelbach provide the information Jordan is asking for by March 14. Jordan also wants details from Dettelbach on how the agency plans to enforce its proposed rule once it’s been formally adopted; information that’s vitally important to any gun owner who might choose to sell a firearm from their personal collection, given that the language of the rule could force almost every private seller to either become a federally licensed firearm dealer or use an FFL to conduct a background check before proceeding with the sale.

Supreme Court Justices Reveal Their Ignorance On Guns In Oral Arguments

From The Federalist:

The key differences between automatic and semiautomatic weapons with bump stocks were largely lost on the justices, especially Ketanji Brown Jackson and Elena Kagan, who repeatedly insisted bump stock-equipped guns can fire up to 800 rounds a second. They, along with the government’s legal team, repeated the lie that semiautomatic rifles with modifiers could fire hundreds of shots (in Kagan’s words, “a torrent of bullets”) each moment. Cargill lawyer Johnathan Mitchell corrected them multiple times.

More Reasons To Kill NFA and GCA

From The Truth About Guns:

Really, the laws banning and heavily restricting machine guns are pointless and arbitrary when both citizens and cops can’t tell the difference between rapid semi-auto fire and machine gun fire. The lives lost to no-knock raids are likewise a bigger drain on society than any criminal justice gains. On top of all that, the NFA and the GCA don’t comply with the NYSRPA v. Bruen decision.

Dems Want To Ban Training Under Guise of “Anti-Militia” Bill

From Ammoland:

…a new bill making its way through Congress known as the “Preventing Private Paramilitary Activity Act of 2024,” would make all of this illegal or at least suspicious enough to draw scrutiny from the feds. More importantly, it would paint a target on the back of every single American gun owner, which is the actual intent of this ill-conceived and extremely unconstitutional legislation.

To be clear, if Joe Biden ever signs this bill, the second he puts down his crayon the feds will flock to local gun ranges in numbers that will make it nearly impossible for actual members to find a place just to park. This bill would give them license to investigate anyone who trains with a gun in order to determine whether they’re a militia member – and don’t think for a second that they won’t.
