Judge Strikes Down Three Gun Laws In Harrisburg PA

A judge in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, struck down three city ordinances, because of state preemption in a suit filed on behalf of U.S. Shield. Justin McShane, the representing attorney for U.S. Shield, told the city that “the writing is on the wall…” when it comes to such ordinances.

From The Patriot-News:

Dowling’s ruling struck down ordinances prohibiting carrying of guns: in parks, during state emergencies and by unaccompanied minors. Dowling said those ordinances go beyond state law and violate the state’s preeminence in regulating firearms.

Gun Prohibitionists Push California Gun Law For Washington

You thought I-594 was it? No. Gun prohibitionists want it all. The gun banners are forging ahead in pushing, for the same California law, that would allow easy gun restraining orders against gun owners. Even when it would have never stopped the Isla Vista shooter in Santa Barbara. Because taking advantage of victims is what gun prohibitionists do.

OLYMPIA — Advocates for gun regulation and gun rights exchanged emotional testimony Thursday about a bill that would allow judges to order guns temporarily confiscated from people with mental illness and those determined to be at risk for committing violence.

What is the legal definition for “those determined to be at risk”?

Gun Rights Groups Defeat Bloomberg In Vermont

With a tantrum, Sen. Dick Sears sounded the end, of Bloomberg inspired “universal background checks” in Vermont. He lashed out, at a suggestion, from the president of Gun Owners of Vermont. But the attempt, at elimination of private party sales has ended, for this year’s legislative session. The senator made sure that the Bloomberg “background” portion of S.31 bill died a timely death.

From VTDigger:

Sears took offense when Cutler said Sears had introduced a gun bill, and Cutler’s attempts to walk that statement back were deluged by an outpouring of anger from the longtime senator, who loudly informed Cutler that he had never introduced a gun bill. Sears later apologized for his outburst.

Court Sides With California Handgun “Not Unsafe” Roster

Since Californians can still buy a handgun, albeit more costly and with less choices than the rest of free America, a district court judge decided that California’s attempt to gradually ban guns is legal. Gradual because eventually most guns will fall off of the “Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale.” In California, it might have been more odd had the judge been of sound mind, to actually defend the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.

It took the judge 5+ years to come up with this ruling. This is going to be appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and higher, if needed because it’s a good case.

From the California Rifle and Pistol Association:

The court concluded that the Roster doesn’t burden the Second Amendment because it found the Roster to be a presumptively lawful condition and qualification on the commercial sale of firearms.

FCC Proceeds With Internet Takeover Despite Illegality

Despite the fact that the Federal Communications Commission, has lost twice in the courts on “net neutrality,” the federal government went ahead today and created its own authority for an internet takeover. The commission voted 3-2 along party lines. Thankfully we can expect to see legal action very soon.

From Fox:

Republican Commissioner Ajit Pai, who delivered some of the most scathing criticism of the plan Thursday, warned the policy represents a “monumental shift” to “government control of the Internet.”

Further, he accused the FCC of bending to the will of Obama, who last fall came out in favor of such a sweeping regulatory plan.

Pai said the FCC was reversing course from past positions for one reason: “President Obama told us to do so.”

Minnesota State Rep. Tony Cornish on Carry At Mall of America

Cam Edwards interviews Minnesota State Rep. Tony Cornish on the threat to the Mall of American. Why people that have concealed carry permits should be allowed in the mall with their firearms. Terrorists are looking for soft targets to exploit and “gun free zones” make good targets.

Emily Miller Got Her Gun

At gunssavelives.net, Washington D.C.’s Emily Miller, author and pro gun journalist, finally received her concealed carry permit. Keep in mind, that she had to show police reports, to prove a specific threat against her. So most residents still can’t get a carry permit. The city is still as biased as ever.

I got the police reports from two different threats against me, as well as an FBI warning that a terror group is targeting journalists. I turned in my application at the end of November.

“Net Neutrality” Push Funded By Soros And Ford Foundation

George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, and the Ford Foundation are behind a $196 million push, between 2000 and 2013, to fund so called “net neutrality.” A top down effort, to place the internet, under the control of the federal government. Where you can bet that a modern “fairness doctrine” will be rearing its ugly head. Given the lies that have taken place, under the Obama administration since 2008, how can anyone doubt it? The anti-gun hard left, would like nothing more, than to undermine their biggest alternative media critics.

The Washington Examiner quotes the Media Research Center:

“The Ford Foundation, which claims to be the second-largest private foundation in the U.S., and Open Society Foundations, founded by far-left billionaire George Soros, have given more than $196 million to pro-net neutrality groups between 2000 and 2013,” said the report, authored by Media Research Center’s Joseph Rossell, and provided to Secrets.

“These left-wing groups not only impacted the public debate and funded top liberal think tanks from the Center for American Progress to Free Press. They also have direct ties to the White House and regulatory agencies. At least five individuals from these groups have ascended to key positions at the White House and FCC,” said the report which included funding details to pro-net neutrality advocates.

The Obama administration is moving forward, despite the Federal Communications Commission, already having lost their last attempt at “net neutrality.

It opens the door to “new taxes.” A “whole host of harms” according to Ajit Pai a member of the Federal Communications Commission. That’s not the half of it.
