  • Law of Self Defense: A Self-Defense Cascade of Failure

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 7-18-2018 | Andrew Branca
    I’m often asked to describe the most common way people screw up their self-defense claim. The truth is there isn’t a single most common way. Too many people manage to find an apparently infinite number of ways to step outside the bounds of the law. Often, there were a bunch of exits off that jail-bound freeway that they could have taken, but didn’t.For most normally law-abiding people this is not done out of malice, but ignorance. I mean ignorance not in a derogatory sense, but in a technical sense–they didn’t know where the legal boundaries were, and stepped over them...

    The campaign manager of a Democrat seeking a U.S. House seat in upstate New York quit the campaign Tuesday, after a video showed the candidate saying she wouldn't publicly endorse a ban on certain firearms -- for fear that shed lose the election. Mike Szustak, who since April had run the campaign of candidate Tedra Cobb, told the Watertown Daily Times that hes no longer part of Cobb's bid to unseat Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik in New York's 21st Congressional District. The departure follows revelations that Cobb wont publicly state that she favors banning assault rifles. The video was first...

    Just weeks after the UKs i News published James Comeys call for more gun control in America, the former FBI director is using Twitter to urge Americans to vote Democrat in November. On July 1, 2018, Breitbart News reported excepts from Comeys i News interview, in which he claimed the NRA tells lies and called for limitations on the types of guns Americans can purchase, as well as limits magazine capacity for those guns. Comey said, Theres no slippery slope in America when it comes to guns. Its a concrete staircase, which is our constitution. We just have to decide...

    The July 17 episode of Freeforms The Bold Type exposed the unwillingness of anti-gun leftists to accept gun owners, even if one is their best friend. Budding writer Jane Sloan was traumatized at a very young age by the Columbine school shooting and she is horrified to learn that her roommate, Sutton, owns a shotgun. Jane (Katie Stevens) was a first grade student just five miles from Columbine High School and she says her teachers daughter was murdered in that mass shooting in which shotguns were used. Meanwhile, her roommate Sutton (Meghann Fahy) grew up in central Pennsylvania and was...

    There is an unwritten rule in government, at all levels, that whenever it fails, the appropriate (if not immediate) response is to double down on more government solutions. Is regulatory red tape making it impossible to do business in a state? No problem! Tax the remaining rich people. Having trouble paying for all those costly city social programs? Do as Chicago does, and get that money back impounding the cars of the underprivileged! Lets also not forget that after the Bureau of Land Managements suspect grazing policies nearly provoked a modern-day range war at Bundy Ranch in Nevada, the BLMs...

    Gun Watch ^ | 18 July, 2018 | Dean Weingarten
    I have been staying in Middleton, Wisconsin for a couple of months. After an injury a couple of years ago, and a serious case of pneumonia, I have changed exercise from running to brisk walking. Wearing t-shirt and shorts limits the options for concealed carry. Most of my walking in the area started about 0500, but on Monday, July 9th, I had stayed up late, coming back from a play at American Player's Theater in Spring Green, Wisconsin. I slept in. I didn't get out to exercise until after 0800. It was a mistake. Instead of a few cars...

    Gun control advocates are hyperventilating over President Trumps nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Michael Bloombergs anti-gun rights group, Everytown for Gun Safety, warned: Judge Kavanaugh has applied an extreme and dangerous interpretation of the Second Amendment when determining whether a law is constitutional, one that does not take into account a laws impact on public safety.

    The campaign manager for Democrat Tedra Cobb, who is running to unseat Rep. Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.), left the campaign on Tuesday in the wake of a video where Cobb says she won't publicly state what she actually believes about banning certain guns. Mike Szustak, who has been running Cobb's campaign since April, told the Watertown Daily Times that he was no longer working on the campaign. It is not clear if he quit or if he was fired. The move comes in the aftermath of a Washington Free Beacon report on a video showing Cobb telling a group of...
  • Federal Court Upholds Decision to Block Californias Magazine Ban

    FAIRFAX, Va. -- A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit issued a ruling in the case of Duncan v. Becerra on Tuesday upholding a lower courts decision to suspend enforcement of Californias restriction on the possession of magazines that hold 10 rounds or more. This is a significant win for law-abiding gun owners in California, said Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action. This unconstitutional law criminalizes mere possession of many standard capacity magazines and would instantly turn many law-abiding gun owners into criminals. California Rifle and Pistol Association lawyers, with the support of the...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 07/17/18 | Jon Wayne Taylor
    According to the New York Times, the Navajo Nation has made an offer to purchase the Remington Outdoor Company, which recently emerged from bankruptcy. The offer was for approximately half a billion dollars in cash. The offer was rejected by the owners of Remington, Franklin Templeton and JPMorgan Chase. We cant be sure of the reasons for the rejection, but the Navajo nations plans for what they wanted to do with the company certainly couldnt have helped. In short, they sought a strategy that has already proven near-fatal to other firearms manufacturers. According to Andrew Ross Sorkin, the NYTs article...

    There have been a number of recent opinion articles that attempted to create a linkage between firearms in society and the rate of suicides in society. The opinion articles contain explicit calls for more regulation of firearms in society, even though most of the policy prescriptions would have no effect on suicides. Banning or restriction semi-automatic firearms? Suicides only need a single shot.Banning or restricting magazine capacity? Suicides only need one shot. Magazines are superfluous to suicide.Reducing the age of sale for semi-automatic rifles? The same lack of logic applies. The general argument that more guns result in more...

    Hundreds of protesters turned out again Monday, taking over the same block of 71st Street where police shot and killed a man in the South Shore neighborhood on Saturday. The protests continued after police made the unprecedented decision to release body-camera video of the incident, less than 24 hours after it happened. It's been two days since 37-year-old Harith Augustus was shot and killed during a confrontation with Chicago police officers. An independent investigation into the shooting is underway, but several groups say they don't trust it. "I think that Mr. Augustus' constitutional rights were violated," said Maxwell Little, South...
