    President Biden traveled to Monterey Park, California, the site of a mass public shooting that left 11 dead in January, to announce new executive actions on gun control. He touts the proposals as necessary “to reduce gun violence and make our communities safer.” But California already has all the gun control laws that Biden put forward, and yet it has a higher per capita rate of mass public shootings than the rest of the country. Measures already in place include background checks on all transfers of firearms, “red flag” gun confiscation laws, and an assault weapon ban. Even if Biden’s...

    President Joe Biden apparently plans to make gun control a campaign issue, even if he doesn’t have the votes to pass more gun control laws. On Tuesday, Biden will announce an executive order intended to control the availability of guns as much as he can without going through Congress. He’ll make the announcement in Monterey Park, California, where 72-year-old Huu Can Tran shot and killed eleven people with a semi-automatic pistol in January, during Lunar New Year celebrations. […] President Biden continues to insist on passage of an “assault weapons” ban, a blanket term that could cover many of the...

    Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney (D) addressed the shooting death of Temple University police officer Christopher Fitzgerald and made clear his view that one cannot claim to back the blue if they do not back gun control. Breitbart News reported that Fitzgerald was shot and killed while investigating a carjacking Saturday night. The alleged cop killer, 18-year-old Miles Pfeffer, was arrested Sunday morning without incident. The Philadelphia Inquirer quoted Kenney reacting to the slaying, saying, “There’s too many [guns] and they’re too easy to get.”

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said Tuesday on his show “Morning Joe” that Republican Party is to blame for mass shootings while reacting to a mass shooting in East Lansing, MI on the campus of Michigan State University. Scarborough said, “What’s wrong with the country? More specifically, what’s wrong with state legislatures? What’s wrong with governors? What’s wrong with members of Congress? What’s wrong with elected leaders? They don’t do everything that they can to stop mass shootings in America. This does not happen in other industrialized nations.” Co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “This is an American problem.”

    Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) used a press conference Wednesday to make clear his response to recent mass shootings in California will be to limit concealed carry. The Sacramento Bee reported Newsom is rallying behind Senate Bill 2, which tightens concealed carry permit issuance requirements in response to the Supreme Court of the United States’ Bruen (2022) decision. That decision struck down New York’s proper cause requirement for concealed carry permit issuance, which, as result, also gutted California’s “good cause” requirement.

    Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he believed Republicans’ refusal to pass “common sense gun safety” was a “dereliction of duty.” Booker said, “There are common sense gun safety things that we can do in this country that majority of Americans agree on, like universal background checks, gun safety locks. There are things we agree on. The problem in America is that we have a major political party that is not willing to do the common sense things that would make us safer.

Newsweek quoted Rivera telling the co-hosts, “I submit to you, ladies and gentlemen, there is no legitimate reason … to have an AR-15.” He described the AR-15 as a “machine gun” that people own in order to make them feel “macho.”

    Legislators in Maryland's 2023 session's first bill would seriously restrict where the tens of thousands of people who recently received concealed handgun permits might actually carry their weapons. The Maryland laws that prevented many otherwise law-abiding persons from obtaining a concealed carry permit were overturned by the supreme court decision in NY v Bruen. Following this decision, applications for firearm licenses skyrocketed. Now, Maryland Senate Bill One would prohibit people with guns from being within 100 feet of a long list of locations that provide "public accommodation," including nearly every retail establishment in the state. It would also make...

    “If a firearm is in common use today, it cannot be banned,” a group of Marylanders and national gun rights groups said in a filing before oral argument Tuesday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. “The rifles banned by Maryland are among the most popular firearms in the country.” Maryland’s prohibition on “assault weapons” was passed in the wake of the 2012 massacre of 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. The state banned less-common semiautomatic “assault pistols” in 1994. The laws cover some but not all semiautomatic rifles, including any...

    The rifle used by the alleged 22-year-old attacker who killed five at Colorado Springs’ Club Q Saturday night was purchased “legally.” ABC News reported the officials briefed on the investigation into the attack say the attacker “legally purchased” his rifle. The officials who spoke with ABC News officials also pointed out that the attacker’s “2021 arrest may not have appeared on background checks because the case does not appear to have been adjudicated.”

Following a spate of recent shootings, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement that President Biden will “continue to do everything in his power” to reduce gun violence, also using the line “enough is enough.” Clinton emphasizes the effectiveness and broad...

After appearing on “Real Time” Friday night, he joined the show’s host Bill Maher, CNN anchor Chris Wallace and BBC News correspondent Katty Kay for an “Overtime” talk in which viewers submit questions. The question posed Christie: It’s rumored you’re considering another presidential run in 2024. Is there any truth to that? “Sure,” Christie said without the slightest hesitation. His answer was so quick that Maher said, “Oh, I love that. I’m telling...

    Senate candidate John Fetterman (D-PA) wants to end the filibuster so Democrats can push through a gun ban for “assault weapons.” Fetterman’s gun control positions were in the spotlight over the weekend after a September 30 FOX News mention of his reference to NRA members as the “lunatic fringe of gun ownership.”
