Court Sides With SAF On Key Points In Challenge of Chicago Gun Range Law

A federal judge has sided with the Second Amendment Foundation on key points of an on-going legal action against the City of Chicago that challenges the city’s municipal code regarding gun ranges inside the city.

The case, Ezell v. City of Chicago, challenged the city’s code by asserting that the regulations involving installation and operation of gun ranges inside city limits are burdensome. In a 32-page decision, U.S. District Court Judge Virginia M. Kendall concurred with SAF’s positions on the city’s zoning and requirements regarding hours of operation. SAF had earlier defeated the city’s total ban on gun ranges in 2011.

“While SAF did not get complete relief with Monday’s ruling,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, “our persistence in this issue, coupled with effective litigation, caused the city to actually repeal many of the rules we challenged, even before the court could address them. That’s an indication the city knows there were problems with the code as written, and it demonstrates that when an in-depth analysis of gun laws is undertaken that requires proponents to prove those laws would be effective, they can’t.”

“Every day on which Chicago loses some of its unconstitutional laws,” observed attorney Alan Gura, who represents SAF in this litigation, “is a better day than the one before. This latest decision brings Chicago that much closer to the rest of America, where responsible, law-abiding people can practically access gun ranges for safety training and recreation. We are studying our options for improving this positive outcome.”

In her ruling, Judge Kendall noted that Chicago police officials “admitted that they had no data or empirical evidence that any criminal impact would occur due to the presence of a firing range, or that it would be lessened by placing ranges in manufacturing districts.” Indeed, plaintiff’s expert Lorin Kramer “testified that he was unaware of any location throughout the country where crime increased as a result of a gun range in that location.”

SAF is also represented by attorney David Sigale. Additional plaintiffs are Rhonda Ezell, for whom the case is named, plus Joseph Brown, William Hespen, Action Target, Inc., and the Illinois State Rifle Association.

Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) voted for Senator Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) failed gun control bill in April 2013 and is endorsed by gun control proponent Michael Bloomberg, but she is claiming pro-gun status in her bid for a fourth term in the Senate.

According to the Shreveport Times, Landrieu’s campaign is trying to put distance between the Senator and her gun control vote by pointing to other votes she “cast favoring gun ownership.”

Retarded Dem Senators Join Bloomturd’s Push for Gun Ban in Kroger Supermarkets

Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) have added their voices to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’s campaign for Kroger to ban the open carry of firearms in its stores.

On August 18 Breitbart News reported that Moms Demand launched a campaign aimed at pressuring Kroger into changing its gun policy. Current Kroger policy abides by local and state regulations.

Moms Demand wants Kroger to ban the open carry of guns, even where it is legal.

According to The Hill, Senators Murphy, Blumenthal, and Feinstein sent a letter to Kroger CEO W. Rodney McMullen on September 30 asking him to ban open carry in all Kroger stores. The Senators argued that “gun extremists… have exploited the current Kroger gun policy” by carrying guns openly while shopping.

They said that by banning open carry, “Kroger would be sending an important message about [their] commitment to the safety of [their] employees and customers.”

#Retarded Leftists Use Robots to Spread P.C. Fascism Against NYCG on Twitter

The use of robotic scripts by leftist scumbags on twitter is nothing new. Over the years I have noticed the homosexuals use them to try to shame anyone who might support traditional marriage.

Now the leftist rump rangers are using these robotic scripts to shame me for using the word “retarded” in the title of this post about the two Senators from Connecticut trying to ban all guns in all stores nationwide.

I am a real person. Every post I make I do so with my own two hands. If you write to me I will read it and respond back.

Screen Shot 2014-10-01 at 11.41.38 AM

The use of automated scripts is dishonest. Also, the pasting of the same comment to a large group of twitter users because they used a word you don’t like is also dishonest and childish. Frankly, it is retarded.

There is only one way to fight these cultural Nazis and that is with both barrels and without fear.

I will use the word retarded when I want in any way that I want.

To do otherwise would make me a mental midget and a retard!

Maryland Gun Ban of 2013 Leads to Increased Gun Sales Statewide

Published on: October 1, 2014

The Firearm Safety Act of 2013 is hitting its one-year mark in Maryland, and a local gun shop owner says sales have increased significantly since the law went into effect.

Parker Bandy, owner of Antietam Firearms, said he knew it would take about a year for people to come around.

“Now they accepted it, we’re helping them get their HQL (handgun qualification license),” Bandy said. “We’re helping them get what they seek, because what they’re after is personal protection. That what we’re all about here.”

Before getting a handgun license in Maryland, you now have to go through training, get fingerprinted and go through a background check with State Police.

Marcia Wise, a local gun owner, said she feels it’s important for people to know how to properly use a handgun, even if they don’t want to own one.

“If you’re in a situation in someone’s home and, say, they are not properly securing their weapon and a kid gets a hold of it,” Wise said. “So you know how to get that and take care of that, and disarm that weapon, that way no one can get hurt.”

As former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords rehearsed the pro-gun control speech she will be delivering in various settings this fall, she stated that the gun violence she endured means “opportunity.”

According to USA Today, Giffords made this assertion in response to a question about her ongoing public push for more gun control via universal background checks, new regulations for gun shows, and more rules for online gun sales.

Reporter Susan Page described Giffords as “the nation’s most prominent victim of gun violence,” then asked her, “What does that mean to you?” Giffords responded, “Opportunity.”

Giffords’ husband, Mark Kelly, urged her to say more, and she added that it is the opportunity to do “the right thing” and “make a positive change.” But Giffords’ recent efforts have been viewed as far from “positive” by some news outlets.

St. Louis, MO – The country’s largest women’s shooting organization will hold its National Chapter Leader Conference Oct. 3-5, 2014 in St. Louis MO.

With the number of women who own firearms for personal protection skyrocketing, there are now over 200 of The Well Armed Woman Shooting Chapters in 44 states, all formed in less than two years. Chapter leaders from coast to coast will travel to St. Louis for three days of seminars, training and for the chance to meet and network with their sister chapter leaders.

The firearm industry has been slow to meet the unique and specific needs of female shooters. The Well Armed Woman Shooting Chapters create a safe and unintimidating environment for women to explore shooting and to hone their skills,” states Carrie Lightfoot, founder of The Well Armed Woman.

DC Police Dept ‘Loses’ Gun Owners’ Fingerprints, Forces Them to Pay Fee to Re-Register

The District of Columbia is the only jurisdiction in America in which gun owners have to re-register their guns with the government every three years. The mandate was enforced at the beginning of this year. Now, the Metropolitan Police Department has been sending notices to residents with registered firearms to come down to their headquarters to be fingerprinted. The only problem is, most people are resisting the demand.

Fox 5’s Emily Miller, a proud gun owner herself, led an investigation into why these law-abiding gun owners were being dragged back to the police station. They were already fingerprinted when they first registered their guns, so why do they have to do it again?

Oklahoma City beheading: Will jihad-style attack boost ‘bring gun to work’ laws?

Published on: September 29, 2014

Vaughan Foods Chief Operating Officer Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff’s deputy, used his personal handgun that he brings to work to stop a beheading attack by recently converted Muslim Alton Nolen on Friday in Oklahoma.

While police in Moore, Okla., have called Mr. Vaughan’s actions heroic, it’s also true that in some parts of the US he could have faced employer sanctions for bringing a gun to his job.

Oklahoma, however, is a pioneer in so-called “bring your gun to work” laws that have spread to 22 other states, mostly in the South and Midwest. The laws make it illegal for a firm to tell employees to leave their guns at home if they use a company parking lot. Some states, including Oklahoma, extend that protection into the workplace.

As the FBI began to investigate whether Mr. Nolen’s recent conversion to Islam played a role in the attack, the issue of guns at work took on new importance, at least for Americans who worry that lone-wolf Islamic jihadis in the US could take inspiration from gruesome beheading videos from the Middle East. Corporations have largely opposed “bring your gun to work” laws out of concerns that guns at work could instigate rather than defuse workplace violence.

“Americans should be ready to face these fanatics,” John Snyder, a gun law expert and lobbyist, says in a press release on Saturday. “As the Oklahoma [attack] indicates, people can stop terror attacks with firearms. Americans need their guns to defend life and freedom.”

The Journalists’ Guide to Guns (How Not to Look Like an Idiot When Writing About Firearms)

Journalists. Bless their hearts. As a rule of thumb, any time we read a news story about a subject or incident we already know a lot about, it turns out that about 25% of what’s reported is simply wrong.

This is why knowledgeable gun owners distrust many news stories involving guns: because too many “journalists” display an ignorance of firearms that would be laughable if it weren’t so appalling. If they can’t get their facts straight about gun technology and shooting, then we don’t trust them on much else.

For over 24 years as a patent attorney, I’ve taken pride in my ability to explain stuff effectively. I’m known as “The Firearms Patent Attorney” because I represent more firearms companies than any other patent attorney or law firm in the world (by a wide margin). That means I spend lots of time explaining how guns work. And I have to keep it simple because I’m not just writing for specialized patent examiners, but for juries and judges, in case there’s ever a lawsuit.

The best compliment I ever get from inventors about a patent application is “Wow! You really understand my invention!” So maybe if I’m good at making gun tech understandable, I might be the right guy to help out the technically-illiterate journalists. Here we go:

California case could end ‘may issue’ CCW permits

Millions more Americans will have the right to drive and walk around U.S. cities with hidden, loaded guns if former police officer and videographer Edward Peruta wins his fight to carry one on assignment.

The sheriff in San Diego rejected Peruta’s application for a permit to carry his Colt 1911 .45 caliber pistol while traveling with cash and expensive equipment in high-crime California neighborhoods. Peruta sued, and a three-judge panel of a federal appeals court ruled in February that the Second Amendment entitles any responsible, law-abiding citizen to possess a concealed firearm in public for self defense.

If the ruling stands after further review by the full court, the Supreme Court could take the case, six years after the justices struck down a Washington, D.C., law that banned handguns in the home.

Since that landmark decision, state and local government efforts to regulate gun possession have largely survived legal attack by gun-rights advocates. A victory for Peruta at the high court could reverse that trend and be used to attack strict public-carry laws in New York City, Boston, Baltimore and Washington. That would expand the number of people with concealed guns on city streets to as much as 5 percent, according to Adam Winkler, a law professor at the University of California at Los Angeles.

“It would mean that the discretionary permitting process in many major cities would be invalidated,” Winkler said. “You’re absolutely talking about millions more people having permits to carry guns.”

The Supreme Court has rarely waded into Second Amendment disputes, the 2008 case being the first in 70 years. In that ruling, the court in a 5-4 vote said for the first time that the Constitution protects individual gun rights, even if a person isn’t affiliated with a state-run militia.

In a 2010 decision that expanded on that one, the court ruled 5-4 that states and cities are bound by the Second Amendment, as well as the federal government. Both cases involved handgun possession in the home, not in public.

USA Today fluff piece: “Giffords is the heir to Jim Brady as the face of gun safety,” (Manipulation of the Brain Damaged)

USA Today fluff piece: “Giffords is the heir to Jim Brady as the face of gun safety,”

Sitting at her kitchen table, nose-to-nose with speech therapist Fabi Hirsch, the former Arizona congresswoman is painstakingly practicing the brief speech she plans to deliver this fall at appearances advocating tighter gun laws. The text in front of her reads, “We stand for common sense,” but to her growing frustration she keeps saying, “We stand for common self.”

Hirsch says the phrase alone a few times as Giffords closes her eyes to listen. Then they recite it together, slowly. Finally Giffords nails it: “We stand for common sense.”

Next sentence.

Word by word, step by step, inch by inch, Gabby Giffords is coming back from the assassination attempt in suburban Tucson on Jan. 8, 2011, which killed six people and sent a bullet into her brain.

Spurred by the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School two years later, she and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, founded Americans for Responsible Solutions. Their new book, Enough: Our Fight to Keep America Safe from Gun Violence, is being published Tuesday by Scribner — a sort of sequel to their 2012 book, Gabby, which chronicled the shooting and her all-but-miraculous survival.

Now a day with Giffords and Kelly at their colorful, comfortable Spanish-style house gives a glimpse into how far she has come, and how far she has to go.

U.S. GUN RANGE BANS MUSLIMS: ‘My Business is a Muslim Free Zone’

Jan Morgan, owner of The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range, has declared her facility a “Muslim free zone.”

A gun range owner, Jan Morgan,decided to ban Muslims from her business.From her website…

I officially declare my business, The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range, a MUSLIM FREE ZONE.

I have made this decision based on the following FACTS:

1) The Koran (which I have read and studied thoroughly and (which all muslims align themselves with), contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam. Don’t take my word for it, click on this blue link and read the verses, HERE.

2) My life has been threatened repeatedly by muslims who are angry that I have studied their koran, know it better than most of them, and am exposing the vileness of their so called “holy book” and its murderous directives.

3) The barbaric act of beheading an innocent American in Oklahoma by a muslim, the Boston bombings, and the murder of 3000 innocent people on 9/11 are more than enough loss of life on my home soil at the hands of muslims to substantiate that muslims can and will follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.

4) Because the nature of my business involves firearms and shooting in an enclosed environment, my patrons are not comfortable being around muslims with guns. (can you blame them?)

5) My range rents and sells guns to my patrons. Why would I want to rent or sell a gun and hand ammunition to someone who aligns himself with a religion that commands him to kill me?
