Nat’l – Courts – How America’s Courts Are Threatening the Rule of Law

THE TRUMPET.COM March 8, 2017 -Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court has avoided hearing cases on the Second Amendment—especially since they have one less judge than usual. But the U.S. Court of Appeals has had no such qualms. On Feb. 21, the Fourth Circuit’s Court of Appeals, in a 10-4 decision, decided to uphold a ban on “assault weapons” and “high-capacity magazines” in the state of Maryland. In doing so,…

WASHINGTON POST March 1, 2017 – An anonymous blogger who uses the pseudonym “Doe Publius” knew he would stir controversy when, in July 2016, he published a “tyrant registry” listing the addresses and home phone numbers of 40 California lawmakers who supported a new gun control law in the state. “Isn’t that dangerous?” Publius asked rhetorically in a post on his blog, The Real Write Winger. “What if something bad happens…

NATIONAL REVIEW February 22, 2017 -What happens when you mix contempt for individual rights with a healthy dose of willful ignorance and fear?

Is the AR-15 a ‘Weapon of War’?

THE TRACE.COM February 23, 2017 – Are AR-15s military weapons, designed for inflicting maximum damage to enemy troops? Or are they part of the American civilian gun owner’s heritage, essential for both recreational shooting and self-defense?  Most of the time, the distinction is of little practical importance: these semiautomatic rifles are ubiquitous, widely available for sale in gun shops across much of America.

In PA Gun Case a Judge’s Opinion is Just That. An Opinion.

By Bob Rogers | GUNPROPLUS.COM  February 21, 2017 — A lawyer’s greatest wish is planting a three-word winning thought – “In my opinion….” – into the mind of a judge just before the judge rules on a case.
