These Trump DOJ Appointees Could Be Instrumental in Shaping National Firearm Laws – “Taking a cue from ProPublica, which disclosed many of the names, we examined the gun-rights records of some the newly installed officials at the department. Most of the DOJ appointees whose backgrounds The Trace reviewed had neither clear ties to the gun lobby or the firearms industry, nor had they publicly staked out strong positions on gun issues. But these three lawyers — plus a fourth, Brett Talley, appointed to the Office of Legal Policy — bring pro-gun views to a federal agency that has significant sway over national firearms laws and regulations. Already, in the first months of Trump’s term, the Justice Department has made two quiet moves toward loosening gun restrictions.”

Do We Need A One-Editorial-A-Month Law? – In an uninformed rant about a one-gun-a-month law proposed by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, the dailypress.com completely ignored the fact that it is already illegal for straw purchasers to buy handguns in Virginia and then sell them on the streets in New York. The editorial, headlined “How Many Guns Do You Need?” concludes, ‘An ordinary citizen shouldn’t need to buy more than 12 guns in a year, and a dangerous one shouldn’t be able to.’ Limiting the number of guns law-abiding people can buy doesn’t actually have anything to do with straw sales, which already break federal laws. In truth, one-gun-a-month laws set a bad and unconstitutional precedent, namely, that government can limit the frequency with which a law-abiding citizen may exercise a constitutionally protected right.
