Trump lawyers ask Supreme Court to reject 2nd Amendment claim by men who lost gun rights over nonviolent crimes

Trump administration lawyers are in an awkward spot of defending guns laws and opposing the 2nd Amendment…But the Justice Department under Trump has embraced the same position in this case that was adopted under President Obama: to defend strict enforcement of a long-standing federal law that bars convicted criminals from ever owning a gun, even when their crimes did not involve violence.

California Democrat Pushes To Ensure Teachers Can’t Shoot Back

So sad to see those people stuck in the dark ages of reality, the future is distributed and if your security plan can’t keep up with distributed threats, you are in for a rude awakening that will cost lives.

Democrat Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) is pushing a bill to guarantee teachers will be unarmed and unable to shoot back should an attack occur — though there have been zero incidents or accidents with armed teachers in California. McCarty’s bill, AB 424, repeals school administrators’ authority to grant permission for teachers with concealed carry permits to carry firearms on campus for defense of themselves and their students.

Liberals Declare Self-Defense Shooting Unconstitutional

You can’t make this stuff up.

Huffington Post writer Justin Curmi wrote in his article titled “A Revision on the Bill of Rights, Part III” that victims who use a handgun to kill an attacker are depriving that suspect of his constitutional rights, namely the right to a fair trial.

– The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights…

U.S. Army Buries XM25 Program – The Firearm BlogThe Firearm Blog

So after almost 20-years of development and millions upon millions of dollars, the system finally dies.

In the latest twist of events to do with the 25mm XM25 “Punisher”, it appears the program is coming to a grinding halt after Military.com recently reported that the U.S. Army has completely canceled the program with Orbital ATK after almost two decades of development work. On top of numerous bureaucratic delays and issues that we’ve covered in an earlier post, the program was suffering from the delay of H&K’s delivery of 20 XM25s to ATK, of which the company sued H&K earlier for over 27 million dollars. Because H&K didn’t or couldn’t deliver the product to ATK, the U.S. Government canceled the procurement program completely about a month ago, with the news just surfacing now. Negotiations ensued between the government and ATK but these apparently could not yield an acceptable replacement in time or to satisfy operational requirements.

Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms Sell Out Illinois FFLs

As part of doing his best to eliminate as many opponents as possible, he struck a deal with the Illinois Firearms Manufacturers Association (IFMA). In a recent article, author John Boch wrote that Jay Keller, IFMA’s lobbyist, traded that group’s opposition to the bill in exchange for a carve-out, removing Prairie State firearms manufacturers from the licensing requirements. To be clear, that means Illinois manufacturers who are members of IFMA, get a pass from everything. Guess who are the two major IFMA funding sources: Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms. The two 500-pound gorillas in Illinois’ gun manufacturing sector.
