    District of Columbia law bans handgun possession by making it a crime to carry an unregistered firearm and prohibiting the registration of handguns; provides separately that no person may carry an unlicensed handgun, but authorizes the police chief to issue 1-year licenses; and requires residents to keep lawfully owned firearms unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock or similar device.

Peter Jason Martucci, 40, was arrested shortly after 11:30 p.m. at a home on Beverly Drive on a felony charge of aggravated assault. There, deputies found a 9 mm handgun inside Martucci’s truck, loaded with eight bullets.

    Walmart's right to sell firearms and ammunition is being threatened by a lawsuit. Fox Business Network reporter Adam Shapiro reported on "Fox and Friends First" this morning that a court decision could stop the retail giant from selling guns, which could change the way publicly traded companies do business in the United States. Shapiro said that Trinity Wall Street Church in New York City owns stock in Walmart. "The church sued the Walmart when they refused to place a proposal on the shareholder ballot at the annual company meeting," he explained. "That proposal could be interpreted to force Walmart's board...

    PHOENIX — Declaring state law to be above all others, a Senate panel voted Tuesday to both block federal gun laws they believe violate the Second Amendment and punish the city of Tucson for enacting its own restrictions. They also agreed to bar state and local governments from helping any federal agency that collects metadata like phone and email records without a warrant. Any official who cooperated would be forever barred from holding public office. And if that isn’t enough, the same committee declared that county sheriffs are supreme, meaning they can arrest federal officials — including police — who...

    The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has acknowledged its role in Operation Choke Point and is taking dramatic steps to reverse its policies in targeting legal and legitimate industries that are disfavored by the Obama administration. “We’re very pleased they’ve acknowledged their wrongdoing and they’ve accepted our suggestions to put in place measures to stop this activity,” Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-Mo., told The Daily Signal in a phone call this morning. Luetkemeyer, a member of the House Financial Services Committee and leader in the fight to end Operation Choke Point, met with FDIC Chairman Martin Gruenbery and Vice Chairman Thomas Hoenig...

    The Bureau of Land Management vowed Saturday that it would continue its legal fight to remove illegal cattle from a rural Nevada range after ending a tense weeklong standoff with a rancher and his supporters. "After 20 years and multiple court orders to remove the trespass cattle, [rancher Cliven] Bundy owes the American taxpayers in excess of $1 million. The BLM will continue to work to resolve the matter administratively and judicially," a statement from the bureau said. "We ask that all parties in the area remain peaceful and law-abiding as the Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service...

    Last week Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (R) signed legislation repealing that state's ban on privately owned short-barreled rifles and shotguns. Buyers of short-barreled rifles and shotguns still face extra scrutiny at the federal level via the National Firearms Act. This requires them to undergo a background check, "pay a $200 federal tax, and register these firearms with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives."

  • New York Gun Owners Flip the Bird to "Assault Weapons" Registration Law

    New York Governor Cuomo the Junior may have rushed through his new gun control law with such speed that police will avoid its restrictions only through the blessed miracle of selective enforcement, but he may have a little trouble getting the state's firearms owners to attend his party. The new law requires owners of those scary-looking rifles known as "assault weapons" to register their property (amidst assurances that, oh no, the registration lists will never be used for confiscation), but gun rights activists are actively urging gun owners to defy the new mandate.

    Our Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms is under attack on many fronts. Governor Deval Patrick, Representative David Linsky (D) Natick, and many others are in the process of, or already have filed new legislation which will severely restrict our second amendment rights while doing NOTHING to solve any real issues. Once again our state legislators are committing "Blame and Punishment" of Massachusetts gun owners. Among the many things our legislators are proposing: 10 round magazines loaded with more than 7 rounds, punishable by more than two years in jail. Magazines containing more than 10 rounds, punishable by...
  • Carolyn McCarthy Makes Impassioned Plea for New Assault Weapons Ban

    Earlier this morning, Democratic lawmakers gathered in Washington D.C. to unveil the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013, which is legislation that would ban “military-style” assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips. The press conference announcing the bill featured New York Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy, the legislation’s House sponsor, as its first speaker. Needless to say, Ms. McCarthy–whose husband was killed in a 1993 shooting spree on the Long Island Rail Road–made it clear it wasn’t going to be a speech that stuck to the script. “This battle has been a very lonely battle for many, many years,” Ms. McCarthy began. “You know,...

    Without much fanfare and as little publicity as possible, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will go to New York City to sign the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), now in the final stages of negotiation at the U.N. The Treaty marks the beginning of an international crusade to impose gun controls on the United States and repeal our Second Amendment rights. The ATT is nominally to stop international arms sales to gangs, criminals, and violent groups. But, as is so often the case with U.N. treaties, this is merely a convenient facade behind which to conceal the ATT’s true intent: to...

    The government-sanctioned gunrunning operation, Fast and Furious, was a plot to undermine Second Amendment rights in the United States, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre charged on Friday in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV. “It’s the only thing that makes any sense,” LaPierre said. “Over a period of two or three years they were running thousands and thousands of guns to the most evil people on earth. At the same time they were yelling ’90 per cent… of the guns the Mexican drug cartels are using come from the United States.’

    This is what decades of iron fisted liberal dominance creates: twelve people shot on Chicago’s South Side; 2 are dead. This is the net result of liberal policies–how’s all that gun control working out? Following the Supreme Court’s upholding of the 2d Amendment, which the fish wrap media erroneously reported as extendinggun laws which should enable private citizen, Otis McDonald to at last purchase a hand gun to keep in his home. McDonald has grown weary of the constant threats, harassment and break ins that too many Americans suffer in gang infested neighborhoods. He rightly sought to buy himself a...

    Why has nobody ripped on the new Brinks/Broadview ads yet? Those commercials are ripe for the plucking. A young woman or vulnerable woman with little girl faces a bad guy who bashes in the door. Here’s what I’d like to see: rather than running away in terror, the woman calmly pulls out her gun and removes the dirt bag’s defective DNA from the collective gene pool. Then when the Brinks guy calls: Hello, Ms. Smith, this is Mr. Handsome Brinks guy. Are you all right? Woman: Yes, we’re fine. Some dirt bag just kicked in my front door. Brinks Guy:...
