An Open Letter to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney

July 23, 2014

Rep. Carolyn Maloney
United States House of Representatives
2308 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Ms. Maloney

It has recently come to my attention that you have levied baseless accusations against me to the Capitol Police and House Sergeant-at-Arms, claiming that I have “called for death threats against elected officials.”[1] Specifically, you alleged that “Mr. Pratt is actively encouraging his members to threaten violent action against members of Congress….”

Your baseless charge apparently rests on your outlandish interpretation based on the Rolling Stone report on my comment, that “The Second Amendment is not for hunting, it’s not even for self-defense [but] for restraining tyrannical tendencies in government… Especially those in the liberal, tyrannical end of the spectrum. There is some restraint, and even if the voters of Brooklyn don’t hold them back, it may be there are other ways that their impulses are somewhat restrained. That’s the whole idea of the Second Amendment.”[2] Additionally, I was quoted as having said that “You know, I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds. Hopefully they’ll behave.”

You reported that the Capitol Police and House sergeant-at-Arms concluded that there was “nothing to be done,”[3] but since you apparently do not “get it,” allow me to explain the obvious. I have never encouraged, or even suggested, that anyone harm anyone. Rather, my speech was designed to educate citizens, and politicians, that it is the fact that Americans are armed that allows them to resist efforts to be dominated, intimidated, or controlled by politicians.

Lest you believe that I stand on the fringes of civilized society, let me provide you with some other sources for the same principle which I was enunciating:

* “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government….” Declaration of Independence (1776).[4]

* “A man’s rights rest in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.” — Frederick Douglass (November 15, 1867).[5]

* “Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty.” — John Basil Barnhill (1914).[6]

* “[W]hen the able-bodied men of a nation are trained in arms and organized, they are better able to resist tyranny.” — Justice Antonin Scalia, District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 598 (2008).[7]

Thomas Jefferson understood that governments have an almost irresistible desire to gain power by robbing the people of their freedom, which the people must resist if they are to remain free, and sadly observed in 1787 from history that “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”[8]

These various statements span four centuries. They come from people of differing ethnicities, of various stations, and holding differing political beliefs. What they all agree on is that you should go to work every day with a healthy amount of fear and respect for the American people who you are supposed to represent.

You should do your job in constant trepidation that:

* Should your constituents disapprove of your job performance, you will be publicly criticized from the soap box;

* Should you enact unconstitutional legislation in violation of your oath of office, you will be voted out via the ballot box;

* Should criminal charges be brought against Americans for crimes which are not authorized by the U.S. Constitution, these prosecutions will be nullified in the jury box; and

* Should you attempt to disarm Americans the way the British crown tried 240 years ago, the same sovereign people who constituted this government using the cartridge box someday may need to reconstitute it, as clearly anticipated by the Declaration of Independence.

The Second Amendment was written to preserve “a free state” against the ever present temptation faced by government officials to steal liberty from the people. As Justice Joseph Story proclaimed in his widely acclaimed Commentaries on the Constitution (§1890):[9]

The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.

The importance of an armed citizenry was demonstrated in 1946, when returning World War II veterans found their hometown of Athens, Tennessee had been taken over by corrupt local politicians. It was those veterans access to and experience with firearms that made possible the preservation of ballot boxes that were about to be fraudulently counted, in what has come to be known as the Battle of Athens. A 1992 movie entitled “An American Story” commemorates the actions of these brave veterans.

Private ownership and skilled use of firearms is what enabled our country to gain its independence, and it is what continues to preserve our liberty. Someday, I hope that you study this aspect of the history of our great nation, that currently allows you to serve in the People’s House, and come to understand the great principles on which it was founded and continues to operate.

Sincerely yours,

Larry Pratt
Executive Director

Federal Judge puts D.C. CCW handgun ruling on 90 Day hold so DC Can Implement Carry

Published on: July 29, 2014

A federal judge on Tuesday put on hold his decision invalidating the District’s long-standing ban on carrying handguns in public places.

The judge’s stay, in effect for 90 days, gives city officials and D.C. police officers some breathing room to respond to a ruling that overturned the District’s primary gun-control law.

Doxie McCoy, a spokeswoman for D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D), said the stay “gives us time to pause, and to act.” She said the mayor will continue to work with the D.C. Council “in terms of what legislation we need to put in. This is certainly welcome news.”

The initial ruling last week by U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. meant that thousands of city residents with registered handguns, in addition to legal gun owners from other states, could carry pistols in Washington. D.C. law is unconstitutional, the judge ruled, because there is no process for issuing carry licenses to registered gun owners.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier and city government officials asked for a temporary reprieve on Monday because they said the ruling left many unanswered questions and had led to safety concerns. Lanier told officers in a memo on Monday night that they could no longer stop someone simply for transporting a gun in public.

D.C.’s Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan requested a stay pending appeal or to give elected officials time to revise the city’s gun laws. City lawyers said in a court filing that the lead attorney for the plaintiffs, Alan Gura, did not object to an immediate 90-day delay as long as the D.C. Council was working to enact new legislation.

Gura was traveling on Tuesday and not immediately available to comment.

In his order on Tuesday, the judge gave the City Council until October 22 to decide whether to enact new legislation “consistent with the court’s ruling.”

Washington DC Concealed Carry Court Victory Raises Hopes for NYC Concealed Carry

Published on: July 28, 2014

The most tantalizing element of the latest gun rights decision in Washington D.C. is the hope that it raises for law-abiding New Yorkers who want to be able to carry a firearm outside of their homes. The decision was issued by a United States district judge, who has blocked the District of Columbia police from enforcing a ban on handguns. The judge who did this, Frederick Scullin Jr., normally sits at Syracuse, New York. He was assigned to this case by the chief justice of America. So the hope is that when he returns to his regular chambers he’ll eventually get a chance to bring some sense to his own state, where by virtue of radically anti-gun authorities the Second Amendment is a dead letter.

Not that New Yorkers should hold their collective breath. It took the plaintiffs something like five years to get a ruling out of federal district court in Washington. The individuals — three men and a woman in four separate efforts to get permits to carry guns in the Columbia District — launched their efforts in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller. That gave a person in capital the right to keep a loaded pistol at home. The Supreme Court later, in McDonald v. Chicago, applied that ruling to the states. Judge Scullin said he didn’t see what grounds were left for Washington to ban its own residents or visitors from carrying a pistol.

Now the District of Columbia authorities are going to have to decide what to do about it, and maybe they will win at the Court of Appeals. But that course is a bit tricky. The Court of Appeals is the same court that originally ruled in favor of Dick Heller, the retired security guard who wanted to keep his loaded pistol in his home. The Appeals court found that the right to keep and bear arms in the Second Amendment belongs not to a “well-regulated militia” but to the people. That’s because of the actual language of the Constitution, which speaks in plain language of the “right of the people to keep and bear arms” shall not be even infringed.

SAF VICTORY IN DC CONCEALED CARRY CASE ‘ONE MORE STEP’ TOWARD FIREARMS FREEDOM

Published on: July 28, 2014

Saturday’s long-awaited victory in Palmer v. District of Columbia is “one more important step toward firearms freedom,” the Second Amendment Foundation said today after reviewing the ruling, which the District of Columbia now reportedly plans to appeal.

“We will take all necessary steps to defend our victory against an unconstitutional ban on bearing arms outside of one’s home,” vowed SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “The decision by Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr., reinforces our efforts in challenging burdensome concealed carry laws in several states.”

In his 19-page ruling, Judge Scullin wrote, “In light of Heller, McDonald and their progeny, 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.”

“Ever since the 2008 Heller ruling by the Supreme Court, the District of Columbia has carried on a campaign of red tape and regulation to discourage citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights,” Gottlieb said. “This has included bearing arms outside the home for personal protection. We applaud Judge Scullin’s ruling, because the time is long overdue for the city to realize that it is the capitol of the United States, not a police state.

“Washington, D.C. is not some political gulag,” he observed, “but the seat of government in a land of free people. A cornerstone of that freedom is the right to keep and bear arms, and where better to exercise that right than in the nation’s capital? We have no intention of letting anti-gun city officials further delay the ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their rights. As Dr. Martin Luther King said, ‘A right delayed is a right denied.’

SAF lawsuits have overturned laws not only in Washington D.C., but in several states including Illinois, California, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nebraska, and cities like San Francisco, Seattle, Des Moines and New Haven, among others, Gottlieb noted. Threats of SAF lawsuits have removed well over 100 anti-gun-rights laws across the country as well as stopping hundreds more from being enacted, he added.

“We are focusing our efforts on getting rid of unconstitutional violations of firearms owners’ civil rights in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, California and other states,” he said.

“These victories have been made possible by hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans who have financially supported SAF efforts over the years, Gottlieb noted. “Thanks to them, we have been able to field a first-rate team of legal advocates headed by noted civil rights attorney Alan Gura.

“SAF’s record of legal victories on behalf of the right to keep and bear arms has set the bar for all current and future firearms civil rights litigation,” Gottlieb concluded. “This is not SAF’s last step, but only the latest, in our efforts to win back firearms freedom, one lawsuit at a time.”

New York Court “Sets Aside” Gravity Knife Charge (We Still Need to Fight NYC Bans on Knives)

Published on: July 28, 2014

In a remarkably commonsense decision, a New York court has set aside a Gravity Knife prosecution “in the interest of justice.” Click here to read Judge Webber’s decision. This decision is getting a lot of attention among knife owners, however…

WARNING! Residents of New York City and those traveling there should NOT take this as meaning that they can now carry any folding knife they want (see more below).

This is a positive outcome for a number of reasons, but most importantly because, while it unfortunately affirms the so-called “wrist flick test” as a means of identifying a Gravity Knife in New York, which we assert in our Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit as being an unconstitutionally vague test, it recognizes that a great many people carry and use such knives for lawful purposes, in New York as well as throughout the U.S. Further, the court acknowledged that the law has been criticized for its harsh impact on the law abiding citizen and specifically cites the case of Knife Rights’ plaintiff John Copeland as one example. The court then goes on to note that the legislature has made several attempts to try and ameliorate the harsh nature of the law by making intent to use for a criminal purpose an element of the offense, rather than mere possession. Finally, the court found that the fact that the defendant had no criminal intent was, in part, a basis for dismissing his indictment, “in the interest of justice.”

WARNING! Residents of New York City and those traveling there should NOT take this as meaning that they can now carry any folding knife they want that is otherwise carried in compliance with NYC rules (under 4-inches and carried concealed).

In New York the “Supreme Court” is something of a misnomer and this is not an appeals level court. We have no expectation that the New York City Police Department or District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr, will suddenly stop arresting anyone who they can allege to have a gravity knife based on the “wrist flick test.” We continue to provide the same cautions for NYC knife carriers that we have given for some time:

Note that New York City administrative code has an under-4-inch length limit and requires knives be carried concealed. Knife Rights recommends that you never carry your knife clipped to your pocket in New York City. Even when covered by a jacket, simply moving the jacket aside to get to a wallet has been enough to get folks arrested. Always ensure your knife is completely concealed at all times, including not “printing” on the outside of your clothing. In addition, be extremely circumspect about using a knife for any purpose in a public setting.

Note also that NYC has interpreted the state law against gravity knives such that if an officer can “wrist flick” the knife blade open and the knife blade locks open, that knife is an illegal gravity knife. NYC takes this position even if it requires multiple tries and use of exaggerated arm thrust or motion. Using this interpretation, most any lockblade knife might be deemed an illegal gravity knife.

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.”

Click here to read the decision.

“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.

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?

I asked Marc Krebs of Krebs Custom, Jim Fuller of Rifle Dynamics and Chase Sisgold of Definitive Arms for their thoughts on this matter.

Why?

They are the top AK builders in the country and arguably, some of the best informed guys in the industry.

Conservatism Is The New Punk Rock (Liberalism is in Decline)

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.

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.

Scandal exposes NY Gov. CuHomo as liar and phony

Scandal exposes Cuomo as liar and phony

The devastating New York Times story on Gov. Cuomo’s political interference with his Moreland Commission panel’s investigation of public corruption pulled the veil from one of the biggest open secrets at the state Capitol: The governor is a liar and almost anything he promises will turn out to be false.

Cuomo’s betrayal of major pledges is well known: the promise to cut taxes in a meaningful way, encourage job creation without government handouts, reduce local mandates, conduct public work transparently and have science — not politics — determine if fracking can be done safely.

But it wasn’t until it Cuomo violated his No. 1 pledge to rid New York of the “culture of corruption’’ that has dominated Albany for decades that the full extent of his betrayal of the public became clear.

People who have known Cuomo for years, including some who go back to the days he served as the thuggish chief enforcer of his father, then-Gov. Mario Cuomo, say they aren’t surprised Cuomo’s penchant for lying has finally exploded in full public view.

“What took so long?” quipped a Cuomo associate who has known the governor for more than 20 years.

Live From New York: You’re Under Arrest, Cardiac Arrest (The Killing of Eric Garner by NYPD)

Smoking is healthier than fascism. The aphorism’s latest affirmation comes via the death of a seller of cigarette singles at the hands of New York City police officers.

“Are you serious?” Eric Garner asked the approaching New York City cops. “I didn’t do nothing. What did I do?” No good deed goes unpunished. He apparently captured the attention of the police last week by breaking up a fight. But he appeared on their radar long before that.

“In a city where the authorities are increasingly focused on stamping out petty offenses as a way of heading off larger ones,” the New York Times reported this week, “the local officers had tangled with Mr. Garner time and time again, arresting him for selling untaxed cigarettes at a price far below what local deli owners could offer.”

In other words, Garner saved customers money. Selling loosies, heretofore not in any ethical sense a criminal let alone a capital offense, strangely called for the convergence of a half-dozen or so officers, who, presumably, had better things to do than wrestle an asthmatic father to the ground, put him in a chokehold, and apply pressure to the downed-and-almost-out, cuffed arrestee.

Justice never sleeps…. not even on a Saturday afternoon, when this opinion was just handed down.

In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, 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. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional. Accordingly, the Court grants Plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment and enjoins Defendants from enforcing the home limitations of D.C. Code § 7-2502.02(a)(4) and enforcing D.C. Code § 22-4504(a) unless and until such time as the District of Columbia adopts a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.4 Furthermore, this injunction prohibits the District from completely banning the carrying of handguns in public for self-defense by otherwise qualified non-residents based solely on the fact that they are not residents of the District.

In 2012, I won Moore v. Madigan, 702 F.3d 933 (7th Cir. 2012), which struck down Illinois total ban on the carrying of defensive handguns outside the home.

Federal Court Strikes Down Fla.’s Law Requiring Doctors to Ask If you Own Guns

A Florida law restricting what doctors can tell patients about gun ownership was deemed to be constitutional Friday by a federal appeals court, which said it legitimately regulates professional conduct and doesn’t violate the doctors’ First Amendment free speech rights.

The ruling by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta overturned a previous decision that had declared the law unconstitutional. An injunction blocking enforcement of the law is still in effect, however.

The 2011 law, which had become popularly known as “Docs vs. Glocks,” was challenged by organizations representing 11,000 state health providers, including the Florida chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians

Doctors who break the law could potentially be fined and lose their licenses.

Psycho Patient Shoots Two at Hospital, Doctor With CCW Saves Day!

A troubled patient opened fire on a caseworker and psychiatrist in a small office at a unit of Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Delaware County on Thursday afternoon, police said, leading the doctor to draw his own weapon and shoot the assailant.

The confrontation left the caseworker, 53-year-old Theresa Hunt, dead and the 52-year-old psychiatrist, a veteran doctor at the hospital whom sources identified as Lee Silverman, with a graze wound to the head. The patient, Richard Plotts, was in critical condition Thursday night from three gunshot wounds.

The violence sent a shock wave through the normally quiet campus of the medical center on the border of Darby Borough and Yeadon. Police vehicles swarmed the scene and armed officers charged through the building – the Sister Marie Lenahan Wellness Center, across Lansdowne Avenue from the main hospital – to evacuate doctors, nurses, and patients waiting for routine appointments.

Authorities said they believed Silverman shot Plotts three times in the torso and arm. Silverman was expected to be released from the hospital Thursday night and recover fully
