Why Constitutional Carry Makes a Difference: Due to technical issues Alabama has stopped issuing Con
John Lott - Crime Prevention Research Center
Published on: 1/18/2022
The constitutional carry bill’s most significant change is to allow people to carry a gun more quickly if need arises. Sheriff’s departments in Alabama try to issue concealed handgun permits within 30 days after someone has met the requirements. If a woman is being stalked or threatened, she may not have time to wait for a license.

Unfortunately, to make matters even worse, Alabama stopped issuing permits at the end of December due to “technical issues.” While the problem only lasted a couple of days, it illustrates a problem that can happen during emergencies, precisely the time when people might need to be able to protect themselves and their families the most.
77-year-old Chicago concealed handgun permit holder shoots robber threatening him

Published on: 1/18/2022
The 77-year-old was in a garage on East 89th near MLK in West Chesterfield around 12:30 p.m. when the robber drove up.

The robber pulled out a gun and demanded the elderly man’s stuff, police said.

Instead of handing his things over, the elderly man pulled out a gun and shot the robber in the head and chest, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. On Sunday, he was identified as Bernard Peterson.

Chicago Police said that the elderly man has a valid Firearms Owner Identification Card and a Concealed Carry License. The Chicago Fire Department confirmed that he is a retired firefighter.
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC AUTHOR CLAIMS IN BOOK KYLE RITTENHOUSE KILLED TWO 'BLACK MEN' AND THIS LIE GOT P
Brodigan - Lowder with Crowder
Published on: 1/17/2022
The media lied a LOT about Kyle Rittenhouse. Like, A LOT a lot. If you aren't familiar with how terrible corporate media is, you would be led to believe the worst about Kyle. Our own Dave Landau will attest to that. The biggest lie is that the two people Kyle acted in self-defense against were black. It might have to do with the lie that Kyle was a white supremacist. It's remarkable how many low-information liberals actually think this. So many, that the lie got published in a book.

The book is called "The Good Kings" by National Geographic author Kara Cooney. The number and levels of editing fails necessary for this to go to print should be marveled at. (h/t The Post Millennial)
AUTHOR WHO PUBLISHED LIE ABOUT KYLE RITTENHOUSE IN A BOOK LASHES OUT AT HER CRITICS
Brodigan - Lowder with Crowder
Published on: 1/17/2022
A reporter discovered that a book about Egypt contained a ginormous lie about Kyle Rittenhouse. In "The Good Kings" by National Geographic author Kara Cooney, Cooney said: "... consider Kyle Rittenhouse, who used his semiautomatic weapon to kill two Black men in Kenosha, Wisconsin, while waging a glorious war on behalf of his inherited White power." That is, of course, complete bullplop. Kyle shot white people in self-defense, one of whom was a pedophile liberals affectionately call "Jo-Jo."

It was an egregious, defamatory lie. But there have been many egregious and defamatory lies told about Kyle Rittenhouse. That's for Kyle and his lawyers to sort through. Most of us just mocked the layers of stupidity necessary for such a mistake to be published. Author Kara Cooney is quite cross with those of us having fun at her expense.

More state legislatures vote for Constitutional Carry: The Ohio State House votes 60-32, Pennsylvani

Published on: 1/17/2022
With 21 states already enacting Constitutional Carry and the Pennsylvania state senate just voting overwhelmingly a week ago, this week the Ohio House passed their bill by 60-32 vote and the Pennsylvania House passed it 107-92. In Ohio, the vote was along straight party lines. The Pennsylvania vote saw eight Republicans opposing it and four Democrats supporting it. Ohio has a stronger probability of passing a bill this session because the Democrat governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, has promised to veto their bill.

UPDATED: December 15, 2021: “Senate Bill 215, known as a constitutional or permitless carry law, passed the Senate 23-7 Wednesday. Sen. Jerry Cirino, R-Kirtland, cast the lone Republican no vote.”

New Study Shows Millions of People Acquiring Firearms for the First Time
Jose Nino - Pro-Gun News
Published on: 1/17/2022
It’s not just pro-gun outlets who are acknowledging the growing gun sales boom taking place across America.

Research from Northeastern University Professor of Health Sciences and Epidemiology professor Matt Miller shows an uptick in overall firearms sales over the past two years.

This mirrors figures provided by the National Shooting Sports Foundation that estimated in 2021 roughly 40% of gun sales were to first-time buyers. As Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms observed, This figure “would have translated to about 8.5-million new gun owners in 2020.” These figures are a tad higher than what Professor Matt Miller’s research showed. His research pointed to roughly 7.5-million Americans becoming gun owners between January 2019 and April 2021.

Published on: 1/17/2022
A new poll by the Trafalgar Group of 1,076 likely general election voters from December 17th to the 21st shows that large numbers of likely Democrat, Republican, and independent voters find strict gun laws ineffective or even harmful. While a plurality thinks that gun control laws make no difference, voters are more than twice as likely to think that strict gun control laws make crime worse than make things better.

Even though Democrats are most sympathetic to gun control, only 30.1% of them think that gun control is making the current surge in crime better. That compares to only 7.3% of Republicans and 9.8% of Independents. The survey results are interesting, but they would be even more useful if they asked people about violent crime generally and not retail crime.

These 12 Incidents of Defensive Gun Use Prove Armed Civilians Make Situations Safer

Published on: 1/16/2022
I testified earlier this month at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in Chicago on underlying causes of the spikes in gun violence in that city and around the country.

Although Sen. Dick Durbin’s interruptions of my opening statement stole the show in many respects, it shouldn’t be overlooked that the Illinois Democrat also solicited disparaging remarks on the right to keep and bear arms from another witness—Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown.

In direct response to one of Durbin’s questions, Brown remarked that armed civilians make police officers’ jobs more difficult, and that he never has seen a lawfully armed civilian make a situation safer.
Gun Grabbers in New Jersey Want to Prevent Lawful Citizens from Defending their Homes with Firearms

Some states in the US are absolutely irredeemable when it comes to gun rights. Due to massive political polarization, several areas of America have become no-go zones for the Second Amendment. If you have the misfortune of living in a solid blue state, the prospect of you ever seeing any type of pro-gun reforms go through is bleak.

Just ask residents of New Jersey. New Jersey is one of the most anti-Second Amendment states in the nation. For example, it is ranked in 48th and 49th place for Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for best states for gun owners and best states for concealed carry respectively.

The same predictions of doom and bloodshed keep coming from gun-control activists. They warn us of pending disaster should Pennsylvania become the 22nd state to adopt so-called constitutional carry rules that would allow law-abiding adults who legally own a handgun to conceal-carry it without a permit. Thirty-four states, including Pennsylvania, already allow open carry without a permit.

On December 12, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that he plans on using a polemical U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Texas’ strict abortion law as the basis for creating a law that would let private citizens file lawsuits against gun manufacturers, distributors, and sellers.

Last week, the Supreme Court kept a Texas law in place that allows private citizens to file lawsuits against individuals who carry out or assist a woman in obtaining an abortion after roughly six weeks of pregnancy.
City attorney tries to crack down on ‘ghost guns’ in Denver
Hannah Metzger - Denver Gazette
Published on: 1/13/2022
The City Attorney’s Office is trying to crack down on the flow of “ghost guns” in Denver, introducing a proposal to the City Council on Wednesday that would make owning the non-serialized firearms illegal.

Ghost guns are homemade firearms that don’t have serial numbers or markings, meaning they can’t be tracked to their maker, seller or original owner. They are often made by buying pre-made parts and assembling them at home, or by 3D-printing non-serialized parts.

City Attorney Kristin Bronson said this allows minors and people with criminal records to get guns without background checks. Without a serial number, ghost guns also make it more difficult to solve crimes and get insight into gun trafficking patterns.
At the Orlando Sentinel: Passing constitutional-carry laws for handguns is common sense

Gun-control advocates keep making the same predictions of doom and bloodshed from law-abiding citizens having guns for protection. They warn us of pending disaster if Florida becomes the 22nd state to adopt so-called constitutional carry rules that would allow law-abiding adults who legally own a handgun to conceal-carry it without a permit. Thirty-four states already allow open carry without a permit.

Florida and other states faced the same predictions of disaster when they first adopted right-to-carry laws, which now exist in 43 states. None of the dire predictions came true. These predictions occurred again after states adopted Constitutional carry. But not a single one of these states has seen the need to reverse the laws. Indeed, none have even held a legislative hearing on undoing these laws, let alone a vote.

At the Federalist: No, The SCOTUS Ruling On Abortion Doesn’t Affect California Gun Laws
John Lott - Crime Prevention Research Center
Published on: 1/13/2022
You would never know it from the reaction of President Biden and Governor Gavin Newsom, but the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Friday about the Texas abortion case didn’t overturn Roe v. Wade. It dealt with arcane legal precedent over who can sue and be sued – what is called “standing” – and the constitutionality of Texas’ law is far from settled. Hopefully, on Saturday, because Newsom hadn’t yet read or understood the decision, he announced that he would now use the ruling to help Californians enforce gun control laws.



Biden and Newsom’s comments are more likely to gin up anger by their supporters than have anything to do with the Supreme Court or the law.

As Support for Stricter Gun Laws Wanes, Demings Touts Gun-Control Group’s Endorsement as ‘Honor’

One of the nation's leading gun-control groups on Monday entered Florida's highly contested Senate race, endorsing Democratic congresswoman Val Demings over Republican incumbent Marco Rubio.

During a Monday morning press conference, Demings called it "an honor" to land support from Giffords PAC, a prominent gun-control advocacy group that in 2020 spent $11 million to help elect Democrats. Giffords senior adviser and former Florida congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D.) joined Demings at the event, where she called Rubio a "spineless senator" who should "take heed" of the group's endorsement.

My very favorite social media meme is a picture of a car’s manual-transmission gear shift. It reads, “millennial anti-theft device.”

Wouldn’t it be weird if people who’ve never driven a stick shift tried to outlaw them? Well, that’s the anti-gun movement.

One of my favorite moments of gun-hating ignorance was when Denver U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette wrote a bill to outlaw what she called “large capacity” magazines. At a town hall meeting she was asked what would happen to all the magazines that are already out there. She said, once people shoot off the bullets and empty the magazines, they’ll be used up and thrown away.

The Colorado Crime Wave: An Economic Analysis of Crime and the Need for Data Driven Solutions

Published on: 1/10/2022
The total cost of crime in Colorado exceeded $27 billion in 2020. While costs are disproportionately felt by victims, this implies an average cost per Coloradan of $4,762 per year. The 2021 costs will grow, as the violent crime rate is on pace to be the highest since 1994, a 10% annual increase.
$27 billion in total costs equates to 77% of the size of the state budget ($35 billion).
$8.5 billion in tangible costs is $1.5 billion more than the combined total market value of the Broncos, Nuggets, Rockies, Avalanche and Rapids ($6.77 billion).
Intangible costs related to victim suffering, reduced quality of life and other societal costs totaled more than $19 billion.

California's governor pledges to model an assault weapons ban on Texas abortion law
AP - NPR
Published on: 1/4/2022
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday pledged to empower private citizens to enforce a ban on the manufacture and sale of assault weapons in the state, citing the same authority claimed by conservative lawmakers in Texas to outlaw most abortions once a heartbeat is detected.

California has banned the manufacture and sale of many assault-style weapons for decades. A federal judge overturned that ban in June, ruling it was unconstitutional and drawing the ire of the state's Democratic leaders by comparing the popular AR-15 rifle to a Swiss Army knife as "good for both home and battle." California's ban remained in place while the state appealed.

California governor Gavin Newsom (D.) is strategizing to use the enforcement mechanism of a recently enacted Texas abortion law, which the Supreme Court allowed to survive on Friday, to curb the sale and circulation of “assault weapons” in the state.

On Saturday, Newsom said in a press release that the governor’s office would work with the legislature and attorney general to create a bill that would empower private citizens to sue for at least $10,000 “anyone who manufactures, distributes, or sells an assault weapon or ghost gun kit or parts in the State of California.”

The Effects of Extreme Risk Protection Orders

Extreme risk protection order (ERPO) laws, sometimes known as gun violence restraining order or “red-flag” laws, are risk-based, temporary, and preemptive protective orders that authorize the removal of firearms from individuals determined to be at risk for committing gun violence against others or themselves.[1] With ERPO laws in place, law enforcement, family members, or medical professionals can petition a court to temporarily restrict a person’s access to firearms if they believe that person is at risk of hurting him or herself or others. ERPO laws differ from prohibited purchaser regulations that prevent specific groups of individuals—such as those with a criminal record, those with a history of domestic abuse, or those who have been dishonorably discharged from the military—from owning, purchasing, or possessing firearms. They also differ from laws that require the removal of firearms from prohibited possessors (see our analysis of surrender of firearms by prohibited possessors)

Everything the Media Told You About Kyle Rittenhouse Was Wrong

Published on: 12/17/2021
Last week's acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with the murder of two men in Kenosha, Wis., likely came as a shock to millions of Americans who had relied on the media to inform their understanding of the case.

From the time Rittenhouse killed two men on the streets of Kenosha last August, media characterizations of the event suggested his conviction was a foregone conclusion. He was a troubled kid, "a high school dropout who viewed law enforcement as his personal heroes" and had "an affinity for guns." Many took pains to point out that he had attended a rally for then-president Donald Trump. A New York Times report found that he "showed strong support for officers." The Daily Beast referred to him as a "fanatic."

Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial may have ended, but his veneration is only beginning.

On Friday, a jury acquitted Rittenhouse on all charges after he shot three men, killing two and injuring one, during protests against the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020. Ever since the shootings, far-right groups online have fixated on Rittenhouse as a hero who was being unfairly tried, essentially turning him into one of their many living martyrs. A far-right group with 12,500 followers on Telegram, a chat-messaging app, posted daily updates on what it dubbed “the trial of Saint Kyle.” These groups also fixated on the criminal backgrounds of the men Rittenhouse shot, mocked their deaths and celebrated the verdict by calling for more violence.

Transcript of Supreme Court Oral Arguments for New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen
John Lott - Crime Prevention Research Center
Published on: 12/14/2021
This case may be officially about concealed handgun laws, but it could have much more significant implications than just concealed handgun laws. Part of the oral arguments dealt with how courts should evaluate Second Amendment cases. For example, should they use strict or intermediate scrutiny? These are different types of so-called “balancing tests.” When the First Amendment says Congress shall pass no law, balancing tests allow the courts to interpret that as saying Congress shall pass no law unless the courts think they have a good reason to. Or should they follow Scalia’s lead in Heller and follow the bright lines laid down in The Bill of Rights. Kavanaugh seemed skeptical of letting the courts use balancing tests. If the Supreme Court adopted a bright-line rule and not a balancing test, that would be a truly significant win for the Second Amendment. Indeed, possibly all of The Bill of Rights.

Preface: Last Friday, the National Law Journal ran an op-ed by Lisa Vicens and John Donohue with many errors in it regarding a case that the U.S. Supreme Court heard last Wednesday on New York’s concealed handgun law. The article gave readers very inaccurate information on the academic research regarding the risk of crime by concealed handgun permit holders. This false claim of public safety is really all the state of New York has to base its case on. The left-leaning National Law Journal, a business partner with Michael Bloomberg, is unwilling to respond to repeated requests to correct the record on these extreme inaccuracies, so we are publishing our response here at Townhall. Unfortunately, all the judges, lawyers, and law professors who read the National Law Journal won’t hear the other side of the argument.

Some states even have differences in laws from one county to another, so it is very important to pay close attention to your rights to avoid creating a scenario which could result in a question of your ability to own a gun.
