VA – GUN CONTROL – Suit Filed To Stop A One Handgun A Month Law In Virginia

IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG FOR THE DEMOCRATS, ONCE THEY GOT CONTROL OF THE ENTIRE VIRGINIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY, TO PASS A WHOLE HOST OF NEW GUN CONTROL LAWS. ONE OF THEM LIMITS HANDGUN PURCHASES TO ONE PER MONTH. PROPONENTS SAY IT WILL PREVENT STRAW PURCHASERS (WHICH IS ALREADY ILLEGAL, OF COURSE) FROM PURCHASING LARGE NUMBERS OF HANDGUNS FOR ILLEGAL SALES ELSEWHERE. REPUBLICANS CALLED THE LAW UNCONSTITUTIONAL, ESPECIALLY IN THE LIGHT OF THE SUPREME COURT’S 2008 HELLER DECISION, AND PREDICTED THAT IT WOULD BE CHALLENGED.

IL- OPINION – Stop focusing on guns, focus on the criminals

IF CHICAGO MAYOR LORI LIGHTFOOT WOULD STOP TRYING TO BE THE ICON OF SEVERAL “MOVEMENTS” AND START ACTING LIKE A LEADER WHO CAN RECOGNIZE THE REAL PROBLEMS, MAYBE CHICAGO WOULDN’T BE MAKING HEADLINES EVERY WEEK WITH RECORD SHOOTINGS AND A GROWING LIST OF GUN RELATED FATALITIES.

NAT’L – GUN CONTROL – The Amazing History of Gun Control in America

THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN DEBATED FOR YEARS, IN PART BECAUSE OF THE WAY IT IS WORDED – WITH SUPPORTERS SAYING THAT IT ENSURES THE "RIGHT TO OWN" A FIREARM, WHILE OPPONENTS SAYING THAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS INTENDED FOR IT TO MEAN A MILITIA AND THAT AT THE TIME OF ITS WRITING COULDN'T HAVE CONCEIVED OF THE WEAPONS THAT WOULD EVENTUALLY BE DEVELOPED. SOME SECOND AMENDMENT SUPPORTERS MAINTAIN THAT CONGRESS HAS ALREADY INFRINGED ON THE RIGHT TO OWN FIREARMS. THROUGHOUT MUCH OF THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES, HOWEVER, CITIZENS COULD PRETTY MUCH OWN ANYTHING THAT THE MILITARY HAD—AND IN SOME CASES, PRIVATE CITIZENS HAD FIREARMS SUPERIOR TO WHAT THE U.S. ARMY CARRIED.
