Over two dozen legal briefs have been filed this month with the U.S. Supreme Court on a case challenging one of New York City’s restrictive gun control laws.
The case, brought by three NYC gun owners and the state’s NRA affiliate, argues the city’s “premises permit” scheme, which drastically restricts the ability to leave one’s premises with a firearm, is unconstitutional. While the nation’s high court has turned away an effort by New York officials to derail the challenge, the justices will have no shortage of paperwork to consider as part of the case.
So far this month, U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-AL, and 119 other GOP members of Congress have filed a brief in support of the gun owners, followed by another brief submitted by the allied attorneys general or governors of 24 red states. Add to this are separate briefs from dozens of gun rights groups ranging from Gun Owners of California and the Firearms Policy Coalition to Black Guns Matter, the Liberal Gun Club, and the Pink Pistols. Importantly, the U.S. Justice Department has also gone on record as being against New York’s gun restriction.
“The ban all but negates the textually protected right to bear arms, and interferes with the right to keep arms as well; few laws in our history have restricted the right to keep and bear arms as severely as the ban does, and some of those few have been struck down,” said a 39-page brief filed by the office of Noel Francisco, the U.S. Solicitor General.
Other briefs have been filed by anti-gun groups such as the Brady Campaign and Giffords, who are urging the court not to use New York’s largely unique ban to revisit the Second Amendment as a whole and instead steer clear of larger constitutional questions posed by the case. Notably, these groups have filed their briefs in support of neither party.
No group has filed in support of the city’s law.
The last major gun case the court decided was the McDonald case concerning carry outside of the home in 2010. Since then, the court has ruled in a series of cases concerning guns that are focused more on property law, for instance, that felons could sell their guns after a conviction, rather than challenges brought on Second Amendment grounds.

Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry show off their 3-Gun skills in new footage from Taran Tactical logged while they trained for Wick 3.
Reeves, already well-known for the time, sweat and brass he logs at Taran Tactical’s Simi Valley, California facility, clears the clock in the above video while Berry, 52, proves she has been paying attention with her Wick weapons workout, below.
Their on-screen guns for the third installment of the John Wick franchise, various stock and custom Glocks, Sigs and Benellis, were recently on hand in Indianapolis last month and Guns.com caught up with them while they were on display.
Wick 3 opened last week and debuted at $57 million domestically over the weekend to top the box office.

We introduced Century Arms' new, American-made AK at SHOT Show 2019. It's the 7.62x39mm-shooting VSKA (pronounced vis-kuh, and, even though it's made in the USA, it sounds better with an Eastern European accent). I've had some time with this gun and I've put a few rounds through it, and I've carried it around a lot. I like it. Let me show you why.
To take a 30,000 foot view of the MiniFix, and subsequently The Fix, it looks by all accounts almost like a bolt action dropped into a chassis. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. The rifle (and in this case pistol) was designed and built from the ground up, from scratch. The approach being to make a lightweight, accurate and ergonomic bolt action. They decidedly achieved this with the design.

In a previous article, we examined whether you should disclose you are carrying a firearm when a law enforcement officer detains you for a traffic stop. Generally, the advice was that you should voluntarily disclose you are carrying even if the law does not require you to do so. A logical follow-up question is: If you voluntarily disclose that you are carrying, have you given permission for the police officer to search you or your car?

The MK1 Bullpup Chassis is made by MK Machining and allows you to shorten any Remington 700 pattern rifle by nearly a foot without cutting precious inches off of the barrel. There are several reasons this can be advantageous which include the ability to add a suppressor without the gun becoming unreasonably long, putting the weight further back toward the shoulder, making the gun easier to shoot unsupported and shortening the gun to be easier to store and carry.

Out of the box, the P210 feels like it was made for your hand. It's pretty impressive. There's no telling what this pistol is capable of.
