Bless his heart. He thinks his vote actually matters. As if he’d vote for any nominee Trump names . . .
For the most part, the Supreme Court has declined to hear (Second Amendment) cases, including one challenging the assault weapons ban passed in Connecticut shortly after Sandy Hook.
That could change — dramatically — with Trump’s pick to replace Anthony Kennedy.
Here is the truth: This pick could reopen a number of challenges to existing gun violence prevention laws, and it could open up potential challenges to new gun laws passed and signed into law by a new Congress and new president.
Actually, he doesn’t. This is just a crass, transparent fundraising letter meant to spook the horses back home.
So you’re telling us that criminals are breaking the law in order to arm themselves? In California? . . .
A small arsenal of weapons that authorities seized from gang members during a six-month undercover operation lay across the tables at LAPD’s Hollywood station Thursday.
It’s not unusual for the Los Angeles Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to grab high-power weapons during these types of sweeps.
But these AR-15-style semiautomatic rifles and pistols were different — homemade, untraceable “ghost guns” without the traditional serial numbers, built from parts purchased over the internet.
Authorities said they are seeing more gangs turn to homemade guns as it becomes more difficult to acquire real ones.
Shocking moment man shoots driver in the face with an air pistol at POINT BLANK range in furious row over a car
Not really sure why he didn’t floor it as soon as he saw the gun. He’s lucky he didn’t lose an eye. Or worse . . .
This is the shocking moment a man films himself being shot in the face at point blank range over a row about a car.
The footage shows the victim Quintin James Lander arguing with the alleged gunman on a quiet residential street in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire on Tuesday.
The recording begins with the man asking ‘are you going to shoot me?’ as the they argue about his car being smashed.
Still a few level-headed Marylanders left . . .
The Sun correctly states that “Police arrived on the scene almost immediately.” But five people still lost their lives! The flaw is the reasoning of people who think that the police can protect them from heinous criminals. What could have prevented or lessened this terrible tragedy? Only one thing — a good guy with a gun.
Consider for a minute that the maniac who committed this crime started off by shooting out the glass in the front door. Anyone in that room was instantly alerted to the trouble, possibly before the first victim was shot. Anyone in that room with a gun could have stopped the aggressor before he completed his violent acts. There are about 300 million guns in the US — almost one for every citizen. With Maryland’s population of around 6 million, and assuming equal distribution, that’s about 6 million guns in Maryland. Even discounting the national average by 75 percent, there could be 1.5 million guns in Maryland. There is no law that can protect you from 1.5 million guns that are available to people who would use them to harm you.
The more we read, the more we like him . . .
In the wake of mass shootings that have divided the country on the issue of gun control, President Trump is considering nominating to the Supreme Court an appellate judge who has argued that Americans have a constitutional right not only to keep guns at home — as the high court has ruled — but also to carry them in public.
U.S. Appeals Court Judge Thomas M. Hardiman has also written that convicted criminals, including some felons, should be able to recover their right to own and carry guns, as long as their crimes were not violent.
Constitutional-law scholars and advocates on both sides of the gun debate say that Hardiman — who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Philadelphia-based 3rd Circuit and maintains chambers in Pittsburgh — holds a more expansive view of the Second Amendment than the Supreme Court has articulated to date. His nomination and confirmation would push the court to the right, they say, making it more likely that justices would agree to hear cases challenging gun laws — and perhaps to strike them down.
John Wick 3 will be titled “John Wick: Parabellum”.
Not only is Parabellum a type of gun, it is also Latin for “Prepare for war”. pic.twitter.com/auu6GVCRvh
