Federal Court Denies Admin. Stay In DC Concealed Carry Case

Second Amendment Foundation

BELLEVUE, WA – The federal district court judge handling the Second Amendment Foundation’s challenge to the District of Columbia’s “good reason” concealed carry permit requirement has denied the city’s request for an immediate administrative stay of his ruling last week granting a preliminary injunction against further enforcement of the requirement. The District is also seeking a stay pending appeal.

The Importance of Ear Protection, Even While Hunting

Good ear protection seemed imperative after rupturing my eardrum three times, and a stern warning from my otorhinolaryngologists.

Gun Control Advocates Ask D.C. To Keep May Issue Law

Thu, 28 May 2015 19:40:32 +0000

D.C. officials have asked a judge to let the city enforce a central element of its restrictive concealed-carry law — the requirement that handgun owners demonstrate a “good reason” for a permit to carry — while a lawsuit over the matter works its way through the federal court system. Last week, U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. granted a preliminary injunction that blocks the District from enforcing that part of the law, requiring people to prove a specific “good reason” in order to receive a concealed-carry permit. Read the rest of the article here from Washington Times.

Recent Deaths in Chicago Prove That Gun Control is Deadly

Thu, 28 May 2015 19:11:39 +0000

Everyone knows that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results — well, everyone except Rahm Emanuel. Rahm apparently knows something the rest of us don’t about insanity, and this is evidenced by his recent remarks regarding Chicago’s skyrocketing shooting rates. Chicago has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation. It wasn’t until a judge forced them and the rest of the state to have a concealed carry law that made sense. They still have a prohibitively strict protocol in order to obtain a concealed carry permit or...

Maximizing the Beretta 92F with Drop-In Parts from Wilson Combat

Thu, 28 May 2015 18:52:28 +0000

The decision by the US military in 1984 to adopt the Beretta 92F as its new M9 pistol was controversial, to say the least. It has been (and will always remain, no doubt) a topic of heated gun store debates. Officially, the final decision was made based on per-unit cost but I’ve heard all kinds of conspiracy theories to explain the choice as well. Exactly why the Beretta was selected may never be known but one fact is incontrovertible; the Beretta 92F performed at least as well in the military trials as any of the ten other pistols submitted by seven...

Stop Gun Control Against Women

Wed, 27 May 2015 18:08:46 +0000

Do you remember that PSA that Everytown for Gun Safety launched a while back? Remember how we all laughed because it proved exactly the opposite point of what they were intending? I can’t believe the gun grabbers still haven’t gotten rid of the video titled “Will You Stop This?” out of embarrassment. This PSA was released with the message, “Stop Gun Violence Against Women.” Well, YouTube channel Liberty PA decided to give their PSA’s story an alternate ending. It is titled “I Will Stop This.” “Stop Gun Control Against Women.” Sounds like somebody gets it.

D.C.’s May Issue Law Found Unconstitutional

Tue, 26 May 2015 23:29:10 +0000

The District of Columbia has been found, once again, to play some unfair cards against the U.S. Constitution. Recently, On Monday, May 18th, a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction against the may-issue rule for permits. Before July 26, 2014, D.C. upheld a law that restricted both the concealed and open carrying of handguns. On that date, the law was declared “unconstitutional” by U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr.; however, he issued a stay on the ruling until a substitute law could be determined. In September of 2014, Judge Scullin ruled the District of Columbia’s may-issue law, requiring those who desired...
