    It's time for the U.S. Supreme Court to recognize that the Second Amendment right to 'keep and bear arms' does not end arbitrarily at a state’s border.There’s always a risk in trying to predict how the U.S. Supreme Court will decide a case. Justices have proven to be unpredictable in the past, and court watchers will admit that with the Supreme Court, conventional wisdom is anything but conventional. Still, there’s a buzz among the firearm industry and gun owners about the Supreme Court agreeing to hear an appeal in the case of New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v....

From the decision, Case 17-CM-60, 26 April 2021: “A citizen in the State of Illinois is not born with a Second Amendment right. Nor does that right insure when a citizen turns 18 or 21 years of age.

    While President Joe Biden pushes for stricter gun control regulations, the Supreme Court is considering several Second Amendment cases with potentially major implications for gun ownership. The case comes before the court as Biden ramps up the pressure for legislative action on gun rights. On Thursday, Biden signed a series of executive orders regulating firearms, and the White House signaled that his actions were “just the beginning” of a crusade against gun violence. At the same time, the Supreme Court is weighing whether it will take up two cases that could clarify the limits of the Second Amendment. The first...

It will require a gun registry to work. They also passed HR 1446 which allows tyrants to indefinitely hold back background checks. At the same time, these same Democrats blocked legislation that would require ICE to be contacted when illegal aliens apply to buy a gun...

    At a Miami Beach car wash in December 2018, a car thief named Jose Antonio Reyes Bermudez pushed an employee and climbed into a customer’s empty Mercedes SUV.

The customer, Stephen Allen Lott, aimed his pistol and fired two shots as the SUV tried to drive away from the lot. Mortally wounded, Reyes Bermudez — who did not have a gun or a knife — lost control of the stolen SUV. It plowed into the side of a building across the street, destroying an electrical...
