The legal battle is on. Magpul and Colorado sheriffs, have filed a federal lawsuit, that challenges the recent gun restrictions passed in Colorado as unconstitutional. In this day of Supreme Court jurisprudence, where the 2nd Amendment has been ruled an individual right and incorporated throughout the states, they certainly stand a good chance.
The American people will not be ignored. Not in New Jersey or California. In response to anti-gun representatives at a New Jersey gun hearing, the whole audience stands up and recites the pledge of Allegiance, after the removal of Second Amendment activist James Kaleda. The look on the faces of those who don’t respect citizen rights is priceless. Read the story at gunssavelives.net.
The California Department of Justice has just certified “micro-stamping.” Because of Assembly Bill 1471 in 2007, that mandates all new pistols sold in the state on the roster of approved handguns, would require it as soon as such technology is available to more than one manufacturer unencumbered by any patents. I certainly have my doubts, about the actual patents, but when have you ever trusted those who continually attack your Second Amendment rights?
This is but another back door attempt to remove the ability of the citizens of this nation arm themselves. There is no current manufacturer that sells their firearms with such features. The requirement takes effect immediately, which means there’s an even higher likelihood, that California will see no new models added to the bogus list. Which is an outrage.
As Emily Miller points out, a new “assault weapon” ban was signed into law by Maryland Governor O’Malley, that’s not as terrible as originally written. Still, it’s bad enough. There are 45 specific models banned under the new law that do nothing whatsoever to combat crime. It mostly effects the law abiding who dare exercise their right to keep and bear arms. All while criminals will continue on with their violent crimes. You can bet that such criminals are emboldened, by the fact that citizens, have been denied one of the best means of self defense.
One of the worst candidates possible, is running for city attorney of Los Angeles, on May 21. Mike Feuer, the former termed out L.A. city councilman, who originally pushed for a ban on .50 BMG rifles, and other such infringements that have made it all all the way to the state legislature. He’s practically an anti-gun lunatic and he’s continually attacking gun rights. He’s also never tried a case in court. He plainly doesn’t deserve the job based on his attacks on the 2nd Amendment not to mention his lack of experience. Gun owners in the city need to get out and vote.
It’s good to see people with common sense. Especially when much of today’s media, loves to bombard the public with what can only be described as, one sided anti-gun rhetoric. Rob Young, who is now a police officer in the Bay Area, was a first grader when California’s Stockton school shooting occurred. In fact he was actually shot in the foot. The very reason he’s a spokesperson for the 2nd Amendment.
This is what Cuomo and company wanted. A New York man was arrested for carrying two extra bullets in his legal pistol magazine. When he was pulled over for traffic violations. It’s outright persecution of gun owners in the state of New York. The courts can’t smack such laws down soon enough.
Kurt Schlichter makes some excellent points, in his article, “Dems Shoot Themselves in the Foot Again On Guns” at Townhall.com. Political class elitists think that they’re going to make legislators pay for representing their constituents when it comes to guns. It’s more possible that we’re likely to see active gun owners, during the 2014 elections, and the gun banning left isn’t going to like it.
