Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) Pushes May-Issue Federal Firearm Owner Licensing and Gun Confiscation


On Monday, in an obvious and desperate attempt to garner attention in an overcrowded 2020 Democratic presidential field, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) threw long-cultivated anti-gun strategy and messaging to the wind and further exposed the gun control endgame when he released his “Plan To End the Gun Violence Epidemic.” The document is a slapdash gun control advocate wish list, at the core of which is a plan to create a may-issue federal gun owner licensing scheme and confiscate millions of commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms.

Does Shannon Watts want a Ban on all Centerfire Rifle Ammunition?


Shannon Watts has developed her persona as a “full-time volunteer” who wants nothing more than to bring “common sense gun laws” to this country.

State of “Gun Violence” in the United States



Politicians treat so-called "gun violence" as a lever issue, hoping to energize their base and guilt law-abiding Americans into supporting policies that would have no effect on crime or help the mentally ill. Part of this effort entails presenting as large a number of fatalities as possible, and so researchers, the media, and anti-gun politicians combine suicide, homicide, accidents, legal interventions, and incidents in which the intent is unknown.

DELAWARE STATE NEWS
Delaware gun control bills stall in committee


Three controversial gun bills will not be released from committee, meaning they are essentially dead. The measures, which were discussed before a packed house in the Senate Executive Committee Wednesday, would have prohibited a variety of semi-automatic firearms classified as “assault weapons,” criminalized magazines capable of holding more than 15 rounds and established a permitting process to buy a gun. While the bills faced an uphill climb to become law, defeat in the first real test of the legislative process is a surprising outcome and a big blow to gun control advocates. Opponents on the committee still could reverse their decision and send the bills to the entire Senate, but the odds of such a change of opinion appear slim.

WASHINGTONEXAMINER
Gillibrand calls for "assault weapon" and large magazine bans to combat "gun violence"


Presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said that she does not support creating a federal firearm licensing system. “No, I think there is a better approach,” Gillibrand told the Washington Examiner at a campaign stop in Warner, N.H., on Saturday, when asked about a plan proposed by primary rival Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J. “To end gun violence, I would do three things,” she said. “I would, No. 1, pass universal background checks, which are commonsense and supported by 70% of America."

WASHINGTONPOST.COM
Cory Booker’s misleading claim that toy guns are more regulated than real guns


The Fact Checker obviously has no opinion on whether guns should face regulatory oversight for safety or design. But Booker’s comparison of the regulations of toy guns and real guns is specious. In the Medium post, he made clear that when he said “more regulation,” he meant CPSC regulation, not all regulation. The careful language was probably just One or Two Pinocchios. But such nuances were lost when he spoke on television or tweeted about it, pushing himself into the Three Pinocchio range. The CPSC does not regulate guns, but it does regulate toy guns. That does not mean there are “more regulations” of toy guns than real ones. Firearms, at just about every level, are highly regulated in the United States. Booker is calling for another level of regulation, but he can’t suggest toy guns are even more highly regulated.

Kamala Harris escalates gun control agenda


Kamala Harris' unilateral crackdown on guns is expanding. At a presidential campaign event Wednesday in New Hampshire, Harris will pledge to take executive action banning the importation of AR-15-style assault weapons — a move that comes just three weeks after the California Democrat rolled out her sweeping gun-control proposal. Harris — a former career prosecutor who appears intent on owning the gun issue in the crowded primary — said if Congress fails to pass stricter gun laws in her first 100 days as president, she would take matters into her own hands. That involves signing executive orders requiring near-universal background checks on gun sales, closing the so-called "boyfriend loophole," reversing the Trump administration's move to allow fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants to buy guns, and repealing a law that prevents victims from holding gun-makers and firearms dealers liable for their losses.

There is legal precedent for such a ban, the aide said, pointing to similar measures by former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush taken in order to study permanent bans.

In a brief filed with the high court, attorneys with the U.S. Department of Justice, which is not a party to the litigation, argued in a brief to the court on Wednesday that the rule contradicts the Second Amendment and unlawfully restricts interstate commerce by limiting where gun owners can bring their firearms. The rule is being challenged before the high court by the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, which appealed a lower court decision upholding the regulation from last year. The group is affiliated with the National Rifle Association.

Washington: Lawsuit Against I-1639 Proceeds After Motion To Dismiss Denied


On May 20th, the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington rejected a motion by the government defendants to dismiss the lawsuit filed by NRA and the SAF against Washington’s gun control ballot initiative, I-1639. The lawsuit may now proceed.

Illinois Committee Passes Bill to Increase Cost of FOID 1000


On May 21st, the Illinois state House Judiciary Committee voted 12-7 to pass House Amendment 1 to Senate Bill 1966. While it has not yet been scheduled for further action, the House may take it up at any time. HA 1 to SB 1966 would impose various gun control schemes in Illinois, such as criminalizing private transfers and increasing the cost and red tape for a FOID card.

Cabbie Shoots Would-be Armed Robber, Police Say


A robbery suspect was shot by his intended victim Monday morning at Greenwood Manor Apartments. City police said a local cab driver picked up the suspect on the Indiana State University campus before 10:45 a.m. Monday and took him to an apartment on 19th Street.

THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Taking Aim at the Arms Trade Treaty


Some of the most notable policy victories take time — and they seldom generate banner headlines. Take the Arms Trade Treaty. There’s an excellent chance that you’re saying, “The what?” There was a relatively minor ripple in the news cycle when President Trump announced he was withdrawing the United States from it.



NEWS HUNTING
Working Together to Save the Second Amendment Part II: State Success Stories


When I started with NRA in 1995, most of the attention our organization received was over legislative efforts in Congress. Firearm-related legislation at the federal level obviously has an impact on far more law-abiding gun owners than what happens in a single state. As I wrote last month, though, Congress often moves at a glacial pace. If you want to see a more rapid advancement in our Right to Keep and Bear Arms, you need to examine what we have been doing at the state level. Although NRA-ILA had been active at the state level since its inception in 1975, the spark that ignited decades of legislative success in state capitals across the country was the enactment of Florida’s “shall issue” Right-to-Carry (RTC) law in 1987.

Now There’s Irrefutable Proof: Arming School Staff Keeps Kids Safe


In the latest two horrific school shootings, one at a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) high school in Highlands Ranch, CO, and the other at a college in Charlotte, NC, two courageous students lost their lives as they tackled the shooters to stop the slaughter.



NEWS SECOND AMENDMENT
Judges Matter: Contrasting Court Decisions Demonstrate Importance of Judiciary to Second Amendment Rights


I’ve said it before: President Trump’s nomination of conservative judges may well be his most important legacy. Here, “conservative” does not refer to political ideology. It means a legal philosophy that seeks fidelity to the Constitution’s original meaning and the plain text of our laws. This contrasts with “progressive” jurisprudence that treats legal texts not as enduring constraints, but as springboards to policies or outcomes judges think best for present times.

NRA, gun rights groups using New York City rules to seek expansion of Second Amendment in Supreme Court


Gun rights groups are using New York City restrictions that may be repealed as a rallying cry to press the Supreme Court for a major expansion of its Second Amendment precedents. The effort is based on the hope that the court's new, five-member conservative majority will be more sympathetic to gun rights, in much the same way that anti-abortion groups are hoping for a high court crackdown on reproductive rights.

Federal Judge Refuses to Dismiss NRA/SAF Suit Against Washington Gun Control


On Tuesday a federal judge rejected a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against Washington’s gun control Initiative 1639. I-1639 took effect January 1, 2019, and UPI reported that it “bans the sale of semi-automatic weapons to anyone under the age of 21” I-1639 also put an enhanced background check in place for those still allowed to buy commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles and puts gun storage requirements in place, along with penalties for gun owners who fail to comply with those requirements.

Gun Control Activists Urge Approval Of Proposal To Require Fingerprints For Illinois Gun Licenses, More Background Checks For Firearm Purchases


Gun control advocates plan a rally in Springfield on Wednesday, to urge state lawmakers to approve legislation aimed at closing perceived loopholes in the state’s gun licensing system. The measure would require anyone applying for or renewing a Firearm Owner’s Identification card to submit fingerprints as part of their application. It also would require background checks for all gun sales, including by private sellers.

Relatives of some of the 17 people killed in the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High gathered with activists Monday in Fort Lauderdale to submit the first of what they hope will be more than 1 million petitions signed in a push to force a 2020 ballot question to prohibit the possession of what they called “military-grade” weapons. If it passes, the ban would be cemented as an amendment to the Florida Constitution.

LA House Votes to Boost Gun Possession and ‘Stand Your Ground’ Laws


The Louisiana House on Tuesday passed proposals that would restrict local regulation of gun control and boost existing “stand your ground” laws. The House voted 68-30 to support a bill by Rep. Blake Miguez, R-Erath, which would eliminate the authority of local governments to prohibit the possession of firearms in certain businesses and public buildings.

In party-line votes, NH Senate passes 3 gun-control bills


The state Senate approved three gun control measures Thursday along strict, party-line votes, closing a background-check loophole, imposing a three-day waiting period to buy a gun and permitting local school boards to ban guns on their property. But the identical, 13-10 votes -- with all Democrats for and all Republican senators voting against -- send each bill back the House of Representatives for review because senators made substantial changes to them.

An Important Message from Your NRA Leadership and Past Presidents


Since the NRA was founded almost 150 years ago, our adversaries have repeatedly tried to take us down. Today is no different. A recent burst of media claims the NRA is vulnerable, financially unstable, and weakened in its fight to defend the Second Amendment. Obviously intent on not letting the facts get in the way of a good story, most reports offer a distorted and inaccurate view of the NRA. As officers and past presidents of the NRA, we write today to set the record straight.

Texas: Conference Committee to Vote on Evacuation Carry


Dear Second Amendment Supporter:
The Texas Legislature will wrap up over Memorial Day weekend, but there's one more piece of pro-gun legislation they need to pass.

House Bill 1177, an NRA-backed measure that protects citizens from being charged with a crime for carrying a handgun without a License To Carry while evacuating from an area during a declared state or local disaster, or while returning to that area, has been sent to a conference committee to work out the differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill. The House passed a stronger bill that protects evacuees for a longer period of time -- one week versus 48 hours after a disaster declaration -- and ties the protection to a disaster declaration only, rather than a mandatory evacuation order and a disaster declaration.

The bill sponsors, Rep. Dade Phelan (R-Beaumont) and Sen. Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe), are fighting for the strongest version of the bill in conference committee. Here is how you can help!

Please contact your state Senator and urge them to support the conference report on House Bill 1177.

New Federal Law Will Promote Target Range Development on Public Lands

Kamala Harris and the News Media Don’t Know What They Don’t Know

Whether it is banning semi-automatic firearms and placing limitations on magazine capacities, pushing “universal” background checks, imposing potentially endless waiting periods, or trying to use financial institutions to drive their political agenda, anti-gun Democrats are looking to exploit every opportunity they can to promote their attacks on our freedoms.
