- SAF Victory: Federal judge … by Glenn At New…
A federal judge in the District of Columbia on Saturday overturned the city’s total ban on residents being allowing to carry firearms outside their home in a landmark decision for gun-rights activists.
Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. wrote in his ruling in Palmer v. District of Columbia that the right to bear arms extends outside the home, therefore gun-control laws in the nation’s capital are “unconstitutional.”
“We won,” Alan Gura, the lead attorney for the Second Amendment Foundation, told Fox News in a phone interview. “I’m very pleased with the decision that the city can’t forbid the exercise of a fundamental constitutional right.”
Gura said he expects the District to appeal this decision but added, “We’ll be happy to keep the fight going.”
The decision leaves no gray area in gun-carrying rights.
Judge Scullin extensively referenced the Supreme Court decisions in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010) to concluding “there is no longer any basis on which this court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny.”
The court ordered the city to now allow residents from the District and other states to carry weapon within its boundaries.

- Democrat Dick Durbin at the… by Glenn At New…
After a spate of shootings across Chicago that left over a dozen dead and nearly 100 wounded, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) on Friday toured a new federal Gun Crime Intelligence Center, saying, “You can’t fight a war without intelligence,” the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Led by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the office will collect data on the more than 7,000 firearms used in crimes and recovered by Chicago police each year, the Sun-Times writes.
“You can’t fight a war without intelligence, to know where the weapons are, where the shooters are and to stop it before it happens,” Durbin said Friday at the center’s downtown offices, the Sun-Times writes.
Agents will work with other ATF officials in Indiana, Mississippi, Wisconsin and other states from where guns are brought to Chicago, the report says.
President Barack Obama asked the ATF to step up its forces in Chicago, Durbin said, adding seven agents for a total of 52, the Sun-Times says.
- We can’t expect priva… by Glenn At New…
Last week, Buzzfeed reporter Benny Johnson went to work on a list of the seven ugliest federal buildings in Washington, D.C. But what he found was even uglier than the buildings: ignorant, heavy-handed law enforcement officers who told him — wrongly — that he couldn’t photograph the ugly architecture.
Johnson repeatedly confirmed with the media-relations folks at these agencies that it was OK for him to photograph the buildings — as it is for any member of the public — but word hadn’t filtered down to the guys with guns.
Johnson writes: “After I took this photo of a public walkway in front of the (Department of Energy) building, four armed guards surrounded me and my bike. I was ordered off my bicycle and told to hand over my camera. ‘Where is your identification? Why are you taking photos of our building?’ an officer asked me. I explained my role as a reporter and asked what rules I had broken. ‘You are suspicious, and we are in a post-9/11 world,’ he said. The four officers surrounded me right here, directly in front of the building entrance.”
Here’s the thing: They had no authority to do this. It’s legal in America to take pictures of public buildings — and pretty much everything and everyone else in public. That’s something that law enforcement agencies routinely take advantage of in arguing that people have no “reasonable expectation of privacy” when they’re out and about and being surveilled by the government.
- Q&A with Marc Krebs, J… by Glenn At New…
For AK lovers, there’s no bigger story than the sanctions against Concern Kalashnikov, which in effect ban the importation of all Saigas and VEPRS. It’s hard to believe, but this is now a fact of life…at least for the near term future.
What do these sanctions mean to us?
They are the top AK builders in the country and arguably, some of the best informed guys in the industry.
- Courtroom Minefield: After… by Glenn At New…
There are two starkly different arenas where your life will be on the line if you’re ever involved in a gunfight. The first, of course, will be the shootout itself. If you don’t survive that, you won’t have to worry about the second stage. You’ll be in a box six feet underground, or your ashes will have been scattered on the winds, the forests, or the waters.
The second arena will be that of the Courts. You’ll have to deal with the criminal justice system—after all, you’ve just shot a fellow human being. It won’t be a “clean shooting in defense of self or others” until a very powerful criminal justice entity (the prosecutor’s office, or the Court) SAYS it was.
If all goes well and the criminal justice system says you’re justified and good to go, you still have to be concerned with the civil court system. It is absolutely true that “anyone can bring suit against anyone for anything.”
Pro-self-defense forces have been conspicuously successful in a few states, most notably Florida, in passing laws which decree that if a shooting has been determined to have been justifiable in self-defense, a civil lawsuit should not be brought. An amazing number of people have not read the fine print in those laws, and don’t understand the dangerous subtleties that lie beneath the surface of headlines that say, “Lawsuits Forbidden in Justifiable Shootings.”
For one thing, every such law I’ve read leaves an opening for lawsuits if the plaintiff alleges negligence. After all, there is no such thing as a “justifiable accident.”
For another, most such laws are very fungible as to what exactly constitutes a determination of Justifiable Homicide. (Notice the wording itself: it’s not “Justified Homicide,” it’s “Justifiable Homicide.” To most of us who speak the English language, the word “justified” would mean concluded to be such, and the word “justifiable” would mean MIGHT be such. In other words…something open to further interpretation and further analysis.)
For example, consider what I’ll call here Case One. A young man shot and killed a thief on his family’s property who appeared to be about to kill him and a beloved relative. The prosecutor’s office investigated the shooting, and told defense lawyers they didn’t intend to prosecute.
- George Zimmerman To Appeal … by Glenn At New…
George Zimmerman has filed a notice to appeal the dismissal of his defamation lawsuit against NBC Universal and three reporters.
The appeal notice was filed Tuesday with the Seminole County Clerk of Courts. Judge Debra Nelson on June 30 dismissed Zimmerman’s lawsuit, saying the former neighborhood watch leader failed to show the network acted with malice.
- NYPD: Fool Dressed as ̵… by Glenn At New…
A man dressed as Spider-Man was arrested on charges he slugged a police officer who told him to stop harassing tourists in Times Square.
Junior Bishop, 25, of Brooklyn, was charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.
The New York Police Department said the officer assaulted Saturday – an 18-month veteran and one of about 50 officers patrolling the bustling tourist area – stepped in after Bishop demanded at least $5 from a woman he posed for a picture with, instead of the $1 tip she offered.
Police said a costumed Bishop “put out his hand and told the woman 5s, 10s or 20s only.” Police said the officer told him he could only accept tips – not require payment.
- Conservatism Is The New Pun… by Glenn At New…
Conservatism is the Ramones at CBGB – loud, fast and alive. In contrast, liberalism is the headliner at a state fair concert. It’s Foghat, serenading its anesthetized fans as America slow rides into decline.
Back in the 70s, the Ramones put a steel-toed boot into the behind of a fat, flabby rock ‘n roll world that has lost its way. That’s what conservatives are doing today to American politics and culture. And the dinosaur rockers of the status quo hate it.
But some things have changed. Back in the 70’s, it was alienated young people leading the way, yet today’s Millennials support the very liberal status quo that keeps them down. What’s pathetic is that they are so eagerly complicit in their own serfdom.
Dead-end jobs, innovations like Uber sacrificed to protect established Democrat corporatist allies, and tons of student debt for their degrees in Feminist Interpretive Dance – you Millennials have been, and will be, fooled again. And again and again.
I want to make clear for the record that The Who rocks, though many liberals are likely offended by Roger Daltrey’s shamelessly heteronormative persona.
- Sticks, Stones, And Thought… by Glenn At New…
Remember the old saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me”? It’s meaningless now.
Sticks and stones still break your bones, but the names have become a hate crime, which now is worse than actually hitting someone with sticks, stones or just about anything else. The First Amendment protects you from government limiting the things you say, but progressives have sidestepped government to essentially render free speech irrelevant…unless you think like they do.
I’ve written before about the Outrage Industrial Complex, the industry spawned by the professional victimhood class ready to be offended on behalf of just about anyone. There’s good money in it, and there’s more money in stirring up offense in people who, in their daily lives, wouldn’t know about something “offensive” and, more importantly, wouldn’t really give a damn were they not riled up by the faux outrage wranglers.
Tony Dungy is a former NFL head coach and the first black coach to win a Super Bowl. Normally that would put Dungy on the “can not criticize list” for progressives because there are few things they love more than race, especially firsts. But Dungy is a Christian, and being a Christian leads the list of things progressives hate – government is their God, and you shall have no other Gods before government.
