Freedom To Travel, But Not With Guns

From Bearing Arms:

You can travel from wherever you live in the United States to wherever you want in the United States, and your freedom of speech still exists, along with your right to peaceably assemble, petition the government, be secure in your person and property, or have a jury trial if you’re arrested. You take your rights with you no matter where you go, with one very big exception. Your Second Amendment rights typically end at the state line where you live. Cross that border, and your right becomes a privilege, or maybe even a crime.

“Red Flag” Laws Are Confiscation

From News With Views:

Lott mentioned that, “Depending upon the state, anyone from a family member, intimate partner, ex, house or apartment mates, or police can file a complaint.” That is scary enough; if an ex or even an angry or jealous family member wanted to, they could file a complaint. But we now live in very fluid times. Sue, a friend called me last week and related what had happened to her. Her daughter, Kerry, left a frantic text message that she needed her to come right away. Sue called Kerry to find out what was happening. Kerry was at a minor-league baseball game, enjoying herself and had no emergency. Sue called the police who told her that there is an app you can get that lets you use other people’s phone numbers. It happens that Kerry has a bit of a stalker situation at her work and she suspects that he is the one that made the call. But as the police told them, there is no way to trace who made the call.
I can easily imagine someone like that Red Flagging her. Or, there is another scenario I can imagine happening (and I don’t have much of an imagination or I’d be writing fiction and selling lots of books). That is someone(s) wanting to break into your house to rob you or worse, do to you what those men did to Carolyn Warren, above. With such open Red Flag laws, they can disarm you by cop. This isn’t farfetched. The police would take your guns and, by the time you got the situation rectified, you might be dead.

NFA Trumps Kansas Law


The 10th U.S. Circuit upheld the past convictions of Shane Cox and Jeremy Kettler, who had previously been found guilty of violating federal laws concerning the manufacturing and selling of suppressors. While the men used a defense that they felt at the time that they committed their crime that Kansas state law insulated them from prosecution by the federal government, the court in their 48-page ruling did not concur.

Draconian Gun Laws reports on a man who was sentenced to 7 years in prison because of New Jersey’s gun laws and a judge who refused to allow critical evidence into the trial:

Aitken was sentenced in August after he was convicted of felony possession of a handgun. Before his arrest, Aitken, an entrepreneur and owner of a media consulting business, had no criminal record, and it appears he made a good-faith effort to comply with New Jersey’s stringent gun laws. Even the jurors who convicted him seem to have been looking for a reason to acquit him. But the judge gave them little choice. Aitken’s best hope now is executive clemency. He is petitioning New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for a reprieve this week.

Justice Dept. Sues Arizona Over Its Immigration Law

“The Justice Department filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Arizona to challenge a new state law intended to combat illegal immigration, arguing that it would undermine the federal government’s pursuit of terrorists, gang members and other criminal immigrants.”

Yeah, because the federal government is working really, really hard at pursuing criminal immigrants (maybe this is why they can’t be bothered with pursuing illegal immigrants –  they’re just way too busy pursuing criminal immigrants)
