  1. It's no secret that Americans are buying more firearms at a faster rate. But what is interesting about a significant portion of those purchasing firearms over the last year is not only the fact that many are first-time buyers — but also that so many were staunchly anti-gun in the past. What is the background? Firearm sales hit unprecedented levels in 2020. The FBI, in fact, said the agency conducted a record 39.7 million firearm-related background checks last year. The background checks are required of any person who makes purchases from from a federally license
  2. United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- While all the talk has been on gun bans – particularly in light of the Miller v. Bonta case – but let’s keep in mind that there are many attacks on our Second Amendment rights that could come aside from gun bans. One of the biggest avenues will be efforts to push licensing and registration. Now, anti-Second Amendment extremists have long wanted licensing and registration. Take a look at statements Lyndon Baines Johnson made on two occasions during the passage and signing of the Gun Control Act of 1968. Already this year, we have covered various licensing a
  3. U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The media is getting a lesson on the dangers of getting ahead of the facts when it comes to their reporting. This time, they blamed gun buyers for the spike in crime. Turns out, law-abiding citizens who buy guns aren’t the ones committing crimes. They’re buying guns because of the rise in crime. Media are getting wrong – again – and quietly backing off their antigun narrative, for the moment at least. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes thought he had all the answers, or at least enough to mislead his shrinking audience of viewers. He predetermined that 21 million background
  4. As Louisiana lawmakers debate returning to the state capitol for a veto override session, sheriffs from across the state are sounding off on one of the top priorities for Republicans; a Constitutional Carry bill that was approved with a veto-proof majority but was killed by Gov. John Bel Edwards. Several sheriffs have come out against the bill, but Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington isn’t one of them. Instead, he’s urging legislators to stand up for the Second Amendment rights of residents by overriding Edwards’ veto and making Louisiana the 22nd state to adopt permitless carry.
  5. Updates in Under-21 Handgun Ban and New York Carry Cases in Today's FPC Daily 2A Legal Update 7/13/21 In today's FPC legal update, we have updates from a lawsuit challenging the federal ban on FFL handgun sales to under-21 adults and a lawsuit challenging New York's restrictive carry laws. Hirschfeld v. ATF Issue: Under-21 handgun ban Court: Fourth Circuit Action: Opinion In this case challenging the federal prohibition on FFL handgun sales to under-21 adults, a 3-judge panel at the Fourth Circuit determined that "[o]ur nation’s most cherished constitutional r
  6. One of the more common tactics of anti-gun extremists is to make some dramatic statement comparing our nation’s gun laws with some other aspect of everyday life. Every time—not usually or often, but every time—the comparison is wildly inaccurate. One of the more outrageous claims was made in 2016 by then-president Barack Obama (D), who claimed, “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.” Obama’s statement ignored many obvious facts, including that it would be illegal for any teenager to purchase
  7. DATE: July 12, 2021 TO: USF & NRA Members and Friends FROM: Marion P. Hammer USF Executive Director NRA Past President HB-259, The Church Carry bill passed both the House and Senate and has now been signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis. It took effect immediately.

  8. On August 5th, the Surry County Board of Supervisors will consider banning firearms in certain public places. Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to OPPOSE the proposed Section 20-67. Please click the “Take Action” button or click here to contact the Board of Supervisors. The proposed Section 20-67 prohibits firearms, ammunition, and components in public buildings, public parks, and on public streets and sidewalks where, or adjacent to where, certain events are occurring. There are no exemptions for storage in vehicles or for concealed handgun permit holders. This prohib
  9. In an attempt to rise from the ashes of his scandals, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is saying firearms manufacturers and dealers are a “public nuisance” that should be sued into insolvency. Cuomo has plainly decided he needs an enemy to distract the public. He thinks gun owners, and the many companies that make products for them, are perfectly cast for this political gambit. As part of this campaign, Gov. Cuomo signed Senate Bill S7196. This legislation is an attempt to allow state officials and others to sue gun makers and dealers for the actions of violent criminals. Such fri
  10. Handguns for sale at a Virginia gun store / Stephen Gutowski Federal Court Declares Handgun Ban for Adults Under 21 Unconstitutional By Stephen Gutowski Young adults may soon be able to legally buy handguns once again. A three-judge panel in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Tuesday the Second Amendment protects the rights of 18- to 20-year-olds to buy handguns. It struck down federal laws that prohibited licensed dealers from selling to young adults. In a two-to-one vote, the court found the federal restriction did not stand up to scrutiny. “Our nation’s most
