    Gun sales and National Instant background Check System checks fell slightly in July 2022. The Supreme Court decision in the NYSR&PA v Bruen case robustly protected Second Amendment rights.

The gun sales in July were about 1.19 million, about a five percent drop from the 1.25 million in July of 2021 and 2.7% lower than July of 2016, making 2022 the fourth highest July for gun sales on record. NICS checks total were at 2.4 million, the third highest July on record. That is a 17% drop from NICS checks in...

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has so far randomly audited 24 sheriff’s offices in Missouri in search of concealed carry weapon (CCW) details, but they all refused to comply, according to law enforcement authorities. “None released anything pertaining to CCWs themselves, but some did partially comply by answering procedural questions on issuing CCWs,” said Moniteau County’s Sheriff Tony Wheatley. “They answered two of those standard questions but nothing, as far as I know, was given from any sheriff pertaining to any CCW files.” As previously reported in The Epoch Times, the FBI informed several Missouri County sheriffs that they...

    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - The Horry County Republican Party recently voted to censure Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) over his vote on a bipartisan gun reform bill in June. A censure is a motion to strongly disapprove or denounce a lawmaker’s vote. The party unanimously passed a resolution during an Aug. 1 meeting which claims Graham “enables a radical left cultural Marxist agenda and the weakening of the Republican brand and the tarnishing the ideals of freedom, rule of law, and the preservation of constitutional rights.” Graham was one of 15 Republican senators who voted in favor of the bill,...

    The surge in gun crimes in Minneapolis is claiming Black victims at a vastly disproportionate rate to the city's demographics.Last year, police counted one Black shooting victim for every 150 Black residents in Minneapolis, compared to one white victim for every 3,768 white residents, according to data presented to the City Council this week. White people comprise about 60% of Minneapolis' population, versus 19% Black or African people, according to census data. Yet only 9% of shooting victims are white so far in 2022, compared to 83% Black, the data from Minneapolis police show. Two-thirds of the victims are also...

    An FBI forensic report confirms the gun used in the fatal "Rust" shooting could not have been fired without someone pulling the trigger, court documents revealed on Friday. Actor and producer Alec Baldwin admitted to brandishing the gun when 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot on the movie's set last October. However, during an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in December, the actor assuredly claimed he "didn't pull the trigger." "The trigger wasn't pulled," Baldwin said, arguing that he only pulled back the hammer. "I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them, never."...
