Lawsuit Filed Against California’s “Assault Weapon” Ban

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, and the California Rifle and Pistol Association, are supporting a lawsuit against the state of California for its “assault weapon” ban. If this challenge eventually fails at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, it’s good to know there’s a replacement for Justice Scalia, on the Supreme Court.

Lawsuit Filed Against California’s Assault Weapons Control Act

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today announced it is supporting, along with the California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA), an important Second Amendment lawsuit challenging California’s newly expanded Assault Weapons Control Act (AWCA).

Here’s a PDF copy of the complaint from Michel & Associates: http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Rupp-v.-Becerra_Filed-4-24-17_Complaint.pdf

This is a good reason to support the NRA and CRPA.

The Regulatory Framework Of Short-Barrel Firearms

Here’s a good explanation of the National Firearms Act and its flaws. The prohibition era regulation sought to curb possession of NFA firearms through a scheme of taxation. Likely because NFA regulation advocates, new that outright banishment of firearms they didn’t approve of, would not hold up to legal scrutiny. Where the 1934 $200 NFA tax is the equivalent to $3,582.19 in 2016.

A hate tip to Bill Wiese of the Calguns Foundation for this article in Harvard Journal:

HALF‐COCKED: THE REGULATORY FRAMEWORK OFSHORT‐BARREL FIREARMS

The legislative history of the NFA shows that the purpose of
the statute was to stem Prohibition‐era violence…

We see how well gun control works out for controlling violence. Today in gun control California, violent crime is on the rise and not because of inanimate firearms, but because of the poor policies put in place by leftists who abhor the exercise of the Second Amendment by citizens.

Judge Neil Gorsuch Is Confirmed To SCOTUS

Here we have what looks like the best case scenario. Judge Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States. Despite all of the complaints, keep in mind that he was confirmed to sit on the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2006, with no Democrat opposition. He is just about the most qualified man for the job, so the talk is all smoke and mirror political posturing, to stick it to gun owning freedom loving Americans. He is known for adhering to the Constitution which is a good thing for our Second Amendment.

Ninth Circuit Denies En Banc Rehearing For 10 Day Wait

The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has denied an en banc request, to rehear Silvester V. Harris, where said court rejected a previous decision that basically exempted many citizens from the 10 day waiting period when buying a firearm. They have no problem accepting a Second Amendment restriction for citizens, that already legally own firearms, which does not make sense. It seems that the court does not care about hearing cases en banc, unless the case is going to further agendas, that are in tune with the leftist ideology.

From CRPA:

NINTH CIRCUIT DENIES “EN BANC” REHEARING IN SILVESTER V. HARRIS

Terrorist Attack In London Where Citizens Are Disarmed

Earlier today, a man that was likely “inspired by international terrorism,” murdered a London police officer and three other people. How do you think it feels being in a nation, that disallows self defense with firearms, when terrorists looking to create maximum death and destruction are at large? You can bet that’s how many people feel in London right about now. The situation for citizens in England, and especially London, will not be changing for the foreseeable future. Because this is what happens, when a cradle-to-grave nanny state government, that imports Islamic jihadists, is in charge.

Realize that attacks like this, is the very reason why the Trump administration has been attempting to enact a temporary travel ban, that the leftist political machine in the U.S. is doing everything in their power to foil.
