Preliminary injunction issued regarding handgun roster

U.S. District Court judge Cormac J. Carney has issued a preliminary injunction against continuing enforcement of the California handgun roster, ruling that the roster is unconstitutional.

California’s SB 1327 fee shifting provisions stopped

In an order issued last night, Judge Roger Benitez enjoined the fee shifting provisions of SB 1327, a law Governor Newsom patterned after a Texas law banning abortion. This is a HUGE WIN for California’s lawful gun owners as it stops the state’s attempt to make its laws impervious to legal challenge.

Sensible gun logic

  • If gun control laws actually worked, Chicago would be as peaceful as Mayberry, USA.
  • The Second Amendment makes more women equal than the entire feminist movement.
  • Legal gun owners have 300 million guns and probably a trillion rounds of ammo. Seriously, folks, if we were the problem, you’d know about it real quick.
  • When JFK was murdered, nobody blamed the rifle.
  • The National Rifle Association murders 0 people and receives nothing in government funds. On the other hand, Planned Parenthood murders 350,000 babies yearly and receives $500,000,000 in tax dollars annually.
  • I’ve no problem with vigorous background checks when it comes to firearms. But, while we’re at it, let’s do the same when it comes to immigration, voter I.D., and candidates running for office.
  • A man who left 300,000 guns for the Taliban has the gall to be lecturing law-abiding gun owners about gun control.

NY ruling will have enormous implications across the U.S.

Today, Gun Owners of America (GOA) and Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) secured a preliminary injunction in federal district court against most of New York’s poorly named “Concealed Carry Improvement Act.” This follows GOA and GOF securing a temporary restraining order against the law in October, which was frustratingly blocked by a federal appeals court.
