  1. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently issued a “first in the nation” executive order on gun violence, declaring it a “disaster emergency” in his state and vesting himself with the authority to treat it as a “public health crisis” just like the COVID-19 pandemic. Cuomo, a Democrat, also signed into law a bill to hold gun manufacturers and sellers liable for otherwise lawful conduct that nonetheless is deemed to create a “public nuisance.” The new law effectively opens up the floodgates to frivolous lawsuits designed to kneecap a lawful industry and, with it, lawful gun ownership around
  2. Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried announced with great fanfare on Tuesday afternoon that she had suspended the concealed carry licenses of 22 individuals who may have taken part in the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol. Of course, that’s not exactly how Fried, the only Democrat to hold state office in Florida and an active candidate for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in next year’s elections, framed her decision. Over at National Review, Charles Cooke took a look at Florida law and came to the conclusion that Fried’s action is legal, but stupid. Florida’s state
  3. The past few weeks have seen a typical display of just how formulaic and predictable our local elected officials are as they echo national talking points while trying to micromanage our lives, threaten gun rights, and in general treat us like incompetent rubes who couldn’t exist on our own without their guiding wisdom. They made big claims about wanting to deal with violent crime but presented no actual solutions. On July 12, Gainesville City Commissioner David Arreola recommended using American Rescue Plan money to fund a Department of Youth Services. You can find this quote at the 1:02:
  4. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is sending letters to Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) in states that have passed bills protecting the Second Amendment demanding that the FFLs do NOT follow state laws. The ATF, at the same time, sent letters to FFLs telling them to FOLLOW state laws in states that have passed laws that have weakened the Second Amendment. This week Texas FFLs received a letter from ATF Assistant Director of Enforcement Programs and Services Alphonso Hughes regarding House Bill 957 (HB957). The Texas legislator passed HB957 during the last ses
  5. Another big development in the ongoing saga of gun control activist David Chipman’s nomination as permanent director of the ATF courtesy of Stephen Gutowski of The Reload, who reports that in the wake of his story this week about Chipman’s alleged racially discriminatory comments when he was in a leadership position at the ATF’s Detroit field office, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is calling on Joe Biden to withdraw the nomination entirely. “In light of these credible allegations, and Mr. Chipman’s long record of anti-Second Amendment extremism, the President must withdraw Mr. Chi
  6. “Gun violence is a public health crisis in communities of color, and the Second Amendment has roots in slavery.” —opening remark in an article titled, “Racial equity agenda must include gun control,” as published in the Leftist website, “Crosscut,” on March 8, 2021 by Clyde W. Ford . In tandem with the incendiary myth of “critical race theory,” thrust on the public and on our children by a Marxist-controlled Federal Government, a Marxist-controlled public educational system, a seditious, legacy Press, a Marxist-inspired Press, and arrogant Marxist academia, there is the erroneous and dang
  7. Updates in New York, Hawaii, and Sixth Circuit Cases in Today's FPC Daily 2A Legal Update 7/26/21 In today's FPC legal update, we have updates in Cases from New York, Hawaii, and the Sixth Circuit. Henry v. Nassau County Issue: Pistol license revocation Court: Second Circuit Action: Opinion In this lawsuit, the Second Circuit revived and remanded a challenge to Nassau County, New York's revocation of a pistol license, saying that "the district court failed to treat the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right." Comparing the Second Amendment to other
  8. Hi Michael! The Reload was built to provide sober, serious firearms journalism. It was created to dig into stories other outlets won't. This week, I think it lived up to those lofty goals with several exclusive stories that have had a serious impact on Capitol Hill and beyond. First, I followed up on a claim that President Biden's ATF nominee, David Chipman, made racist remarks while working at the agency, to see if anyone else had heard of the story before it came up in a recent FOIA lawsuit. It took a lot of old-fashioned reporting, but I found several who had. And they had other c
  9. The entrance to the national headquarters of the ATF / Stephen Gutowski ATF Agents Corroborate Existence of Racial Complaint Against Biden Director Nominee, Fear Reprisals and Hit to Agency Effectiveness Multiple ATF sources back up the existence of a complaint alleging President Biden’s nominee to lead ATF, David Chipman, made racist comments during his previous stint at the agency. The agents, who have decades of experience at the agency, told The Reload they heard the accusation that Chipman denigrated black ATF agents up for promotion. The officials said they heard about Chi
