California: Legislature Adjourns, Anti-Gun Bills Headed to the Governor!

Tue, 09/01/2020 - 12:49
Late last night, the California Legislature adjourned the 2020 Legislative Session. Three anti-gun bills, AB 2362, AB 2847, and SB 914, passed the Legislature and will now be enrolled to Governor Newsom for his consideration. It's important that gun owners contact the Governor and urge his veto of these measures. The deadline to sign or veto legislation is September 30th. Fortunately, SB 1175, legislation banning the importation of lawfully hunted African species, failed to receive a concurrence vote in the Senate and is dead for the year.

Firearm Prohibitionists Shy Away From Gun Control in Senate Campaign Ads

Mon, 08/31/2020 - 07:25
How unpopular is gun control in states with contested Senate races? Ask Everytown for Gun Safety, a firearm prohibition lobby backed by billionaire Michael Bloomberg. They’re spending big piles of Bloomberg’s cash running campaign ads to flip Senate seats in Iowa and North Carolina. But for a gun control advocacy group, their messaging is suspiciously silent on … well … gun control.

Nothing to See, Says Bloomberg’s Newsletter

Mon, 08/31/2020 - 06:24
Times are tough for the anti-gun crowd. Not financially tough, but tough in the sense that millions of Americans have chosen to acquire a firearm to defend themselves and their loved ones. The Trace is desperately claiming that the tangible increase in gun ownership will have no political significance.

Political Elite Value Their Own Safety, NOT YOURS

Mon, 08/31/2020 - 06:08

No longer content to merely deprive the citizenry of the means with which to defend themselves, politicians in some jurisdictions are depriving residents of police protection as well.

California: California AG Seeks Further Review of Ruling in Magazine Case

Fri, 08/28/2020 - 16:40
Today, the California Attorney General's office filed a petition for an en banc hearing in Duncan v. Becerra—the NRA funded case challenging California's ban on the possession of magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. The petition was expected after the 9th Circuit court of appeals affirmed that the ban violated the Second Amendment on August 14, 2020.  With this move, Attorney General Xavier Becerra is doing the bidding of the anti-gun lobby, who earlier this week demanded that California continue to defend the unconstitutional magazine prohibition.
