CA – GUN CONTROL – Feds Fear Prosecuting La Habra-Based Gun Dealer Would Hurt Gun Control Efforts

For more than a year, Joseph Roh illegally manufactured AR-15-style rifles in a warehouse south of Los Angeles. His customers, more than two dozen of whom were legally prohibited from possessing a firearm, could push a button, pull a lever, and walk away a short time later with a fully assembled, untraceable semi-automatic weapon for about $1,000, according to court records. Roh continued his black-market operation despite being warned…

CA – GUN CONTROL – California Gun Owners Fight Open-Carry Restrictions

Emboldened by a string of recent favorable federal court rulings, gun rights advocates now aim to overturn California’s longstanding open-carry laws. Two men from rural Northern California counties say they’ve been denied open-carry permits by local authorities and can’t even begin to start the application process because the state doesn’t give sheriffs the necessary forms. They believe California’s laws, which require applicants to demonstrate “good cause,” amount to a de facto ban and…

FL – GUN CONTROL – Broward lawmakers want to close ammunition ‘loophole’ in Florida law

Two Broward County Democratic lawmakers want to close a loophole in state law that allows anyone to purchase ammunition without undergoing a background check.

The gun sale can be blocked if the background check determines the purchaser is a convicted felon, has been involved in a domestic violence case, or has a mental illness. The sales prohibition…

About 700 guns that had been gathering dust in evidence rooms across Allegheny County were rounded up and ground to pieces this week.

FL – GUN CONTROL – Lauren Book and Dan Daley seek to vet sale, transfer of ammunition

Democratic lawmakers (FLA) are putting forward a flurry of proposals to beef up gun regulation in the upcoming Legislative Session. Now, Sen. Lauren Book and Rep. Dan Daley are looking to restrict the sale of ammunition as well. A pair of bills from the South Florida Democrats (SB 460, HB 289) would require a background check for the purchase of ammunition from a licensed manufacturer or dealer. The measure would also block the transfer of ammunition, save…

NAT’L – GUN CONTROL – Hobby Lobby faces criticism over products that ‘encourage’ gun violence

Hobby Lobby, the arts-and-crafts giant whose evangelical Christian owners won a landmark religious-freedom ruling in U.S. Supreme Court several years back, is now under fire for selling signs that a customer alleges “glorify and encourage gun violence,” with some calling for a boycott of the chain. Shopper Leslie Ruffing, 39, was at her local Hobby Lobby in Aurora, Ill. when she came across two gun-themed wall decorations….

DC – GUN CONTROL – It seemed like a gun control compromise could be on the way. Then the impeachment inquiry happened.

Just a few weeks ago, the current congressional recess seemed like an enormous opportunity for advocates on both sides of the gun-control debate, a chance to send supporters to meetings with lawmakers at home. The final weeks of summer had been dominated by anger about mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. In the aftermath of the attacks, just hours apart, President Donald Trump seemed…

NV – GUN CONTROL – 5 Misconceptions Promoted by Democrats During Their ‘Gun Safety Forum’

Wednesday’s “Gun Safety Forum” in Las Vegas featured a lot of emoting, a lot of sympathizing with victims of gun violence, and a lot of praise for young activists pushing new restrictions on firearms. But judging from the four interviews with Democratic presidential contenders that I watched, there was little in the way of policy substance. The absence of thoughtful, evidence-based arguments in favor of “common-sense gun laws” was…

Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI) was recorded lashing out at both her constituents and the National Rifle Association (NRA) on Tuesday evening during a town hall aimed at curbing gun violence. “This is why the NRA has got to go,” Stevens shouted as pro-second Amendment advocates made their voices heard. “The NRA has got to go!” she screamed a second time. An estimated 200 people attended the hour-long event, which was…

FL – GUN CONTROL – 8 YEARS OLD: Red flag law used against young kids in Florida “shocking,” says Florida Senator

Florida Senator Jeff Brandes, R- St. Petersburg, was surprised to learn children as young as 8-years-old are being petitioned by law enforcement to stay away from guns under the state’s new red flag law. State law already prohibits anyone younger than 21 from buying a gun. “I don’t understand how an 8-year-old could have legal custody or control over a firearm,” he said. “I would be shocked…

OK – GUN CONTROL – Oklahomans brace for new gun law

Gun control advocates say they’ll spend October distributing “firearms prohibited” window stickers to Oklahoma business owners who don’t want untrained and unlicensed consumers carrying guns into their establishments.

NAT’L – GUN CONTROL – How Can a President Tackle Gun Violence Via Executive Action?

After a summer of mass shootings, Democrats in Congress were pushing for gun reform. But now that the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump is sucking up most of the political oxygen, the window for action on guns seems to have closed. Even if Democrats retake the White House next year, a Republican Senate would likely block new gun laws. With that in mind, a majority of Democratic…

INT’L – GUN CONTROL – Where does Mexico really get its guns?

Tucked inside a narrow wedge of a traditional open-air market is one of Mexico’s most dangerous black market operations. It’s known as the Tepito.
