    Two polls examining the Senate race in Arizona show Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) taking the lead from Democrat challenger Mark Kelly (D) — a significant shift, as Kelly has led the incumbent in a barrage of polls in recent months. A Susquehanna Polling and Research survey released Friday showed McSally overtaking Kelly in the Grand Canyon State, garnering 50 percent to Kelly’s 47 percent. That represents a six-point bounce for McSally, who trailed Kelly by four percent (44 percent to Kelly’s 48 percent) in a September 25 poll: ...

    The man who supplied assault rifles to the terrorists who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., in 2015 was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison on Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California announced. Enrique Marqez Jr., 28, pleaded guilty in 2017 to conspiracy to provide material support and resources to terrorists, and one count of making false statements in connection with the acquisition of firearms. “This defendant was an active member of a conspiracy that planned to inflict death and destruction on innocent people,” First Assistant United States Attorney Tracy Wilkison said in...

    PHILADELPHIA - Here in the birthplace of American democracy, election officials are scrambling to prepare for a presidential vote they fear could plunge the nation into a historic political crisis. Philadelphia’s Board of Elections plans to move its counting operations to a 125,000-square foot space in the city’s convention center. Dozens of staffers, feeding expensive new machines to open envelopes and process mail-in ballots, will spend days tallying hundreds of thousands of votes - under intense scrutiny from partisan observers. The workers likely will discard thousands of ballots that are not properly completed or do not arrive in a special...

    A gun violence counselor and employee with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office shot and killed an armed man who tried to rob him at gunpoint, officials confirmed with NBC10.

The second man fired his own weapon, shooting the 31-year-old once in the chest. The 31-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. The man who shot him was not injured during the incident and has not been charged. Wednesday...

    “We have to make sure — this will sound political but we have to make sure that the Constitution wins the next presidential election,” Pelosi said at an event at Cornell University’s Institute of Politics & Global Affairs. “We can’t be worrying about well, how long is this going to take? Well, that will take as long as it does. And we will press the case so that in the court of public opinion. People will know what is — is right. But we cannot accept a second term for Donald Trump if we are going to be faithful to...
  • Winter in Hell: CNN’s Daniel Dale Admits Trump ‘Correct’ on Biden’s Anti-Fracking Stance

    NewsBusters ^ | 10/23/2020 | Joseph Vazquez
    For CNN’s liberal fact-checker Daniel Dale to admit that President Donald Trump was “correct” about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s fracking stance must have been a hard pill to swallow for the network. During CNN’s post-debate analysis, Anderson Cooper 360° anchor Anderson Cooper pointed out that Trump went after “Biden on the issue of fracking to extract oil and gas.” Cooper then showed a clip of the Trump-Biden exchange on fracking, where Biden claimed that he “never said ‘I oppose fracking.’” Cooper then appeared to try to lead Dale into giving the answer he wanted by saying, “Daniel, he [Biden]...
  • New York Times Editorial: The Philosophy That Makes Amy Coney Barrett So Dangerous; Do we really want our rights to be determined by the understandings of centuries ago?

    New York Times ^ | 10/22/2020 | Erwin Chemerinsky
    In 1987, Robert Bork was denied confirmation to the Supreme Court because his originalist beliefs were deemed a serious threat to constitutional rights. Originalism is no less dangerous for those rights today, yet Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s repeated statements professing her belief in originalism have been met with little objection. Originalists believe that the meaning of a constitutional provision is fixed when it was adopted and that it can change only by constitutional amendment. Under this view, the First Amendment means the same thing as when it was adopted in 1791 and the 14th Amendment means the same thing as...

    Image screenshot from video, cropped and scaled by Dean Weingarten One of President Trump's most consequential actions has been the appointment of Originalist and Textualist judges on the Article III courts. Judge Amy Coney Barret is the latest example. She is likely to make a critical difference for the Second Amendment on the Supreme Court. That will come to a halt if the Republicans lose control of the Senate, starting with Arizona. A group in Arizona, which was organized in part by Second Amendment rock star Doug Ritter and his wife, Sue, has started informing Arizonans about the danger...

    Royal Tiger Imports brings Ethiopia’s Arsenal to America - If you don’t know by now, Royal Tiger Imports is offering for sale some of the rarest late 19th century to mid-20th century military rifles and carbines to ever make their way to the collector market. What makes them really significant is not so much the types of weapons available, as it is their remarkable and undisputable provenance to Ethiopia. One of the least studied and most important military powers in Africa, Ethiopia’s history was shaped by the arms its people bore. Military history buffs have likely, at least, heard of...

    So we’re finding ourselves once more with a whole lotta new gun owners. And that evil black rifle-the AR-15- won’t stay on the shelves long enough to pick up any dust. While having one and knowing how to use one are two very different things, knowing how to use one and actually knowing how to set up a purpose-built weapon is another animal entirely. Here’s the bottom line up front: what are you planning on doing? A so-called home defense weapon is worlds apart from what I’m discussing here. ‘Home defense’ implies that I’m back on my heels, in my...

    U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Federal Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego, who has issued pro-Second Amendment rulings at least twice against California state statutes, was scheduled to hold an evidentiary hearing in another gun rights case Monday morning, and that is eliciting wails from gun prohibition groups. Anti-gun groups are already on the warpath against the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. For example, the Seattle-based Alliance for Gun Responsibility is campaigning to prevent confirmation, calling Judge Barrett “a Second Amendment extremist.” Federal Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego appears to be the newest target of anti-gun...

    Prior to 1968, most adults in the United States could purchase a firearm without state interference. Guns were available in local retail stores, as well as mail-order catalogs, and as long as you hadn’t been convicted of a felony and you had the funds, there weren’t any questions asked. Things are different now. Depending on where in America you are and what type of gun you want to buy, there’s a good chance you’ll need to pass a NICS-mandated background check to complete your purchase. Although many people hold a strong opinion for and against gun background checks, they’ve proven...

The firearm or firearms were not identified. Deputies involved were not identified.

    Ten years before Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the landmark Second Amendment opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller crystallizing the Constitution’s guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right, he was welcoming a young clerk to chambers by the name of Amy Coney Barrett. There were no Second Amendment cases before the Supreme Court that term. In fact, before Heller, the court had not taken up a Second Amendment case since 1939 — and before then, only twice in history, both in the 19th century. The court has decided three Second Amendment cases since Heller...
