Attorneys General from 21 states ask Supreme Court to hear suit against Maryland’s assault weapons ban
On Saturday, a federal judge in DC overturned the city’s total ban on residents being allowing to carry firearms outside their home in a landmark decision for gun-rights activists. Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. wrote in his ruling in Palmer v. District of Columbia that the right to bear arms extends outside the home, therefore gun-control laws in the nation’s capital are “unconstitutional.”
Colorado’s new gun control laws limiting the size of ammunition magazines and requiring background checks aren’t resulting in a rash of criminal charges. And in at least one Colorado county, the new laws haven’t resulted in a single case. The Colorado State Patrol also said it wasn’t aware of its troopers citing anyone for violations.
On Januaary 16, 4 South Carolina State Senators joined the fight to protect the Second Amendment and to safeguard their citizens from federal tyranny. Senate Bill 247 is sponsored by state Senators Tom Corbin, Tom Davis, Kevin Bryant, and Lee Bright. Although only four senators currently sponsor the bill, sources inside the South Carolina House of Representatives report that a companion measure will soon be offered in that chamber, as well.
Obama knew his gun control plan would run into resistance from House Republicans, but the plan is already running into resistance, or at least hesitation, from moderate Democrats in the Senate.
Ever since Obama spoke on Meet the Press, and said he will put every effort behind new gun control laws, and he said there will be resistance, he was right. This has angered law abiding gun owners even more. He politicized the Sandy Hook shooting to try and further his agenda to unarm America, but it’s not working.
