Hall v. Chicago Right-to-Carry Case Moves Forward

Delaware: Governor Jack Markell Signs into Law Measure Attacking Law-Abiding Gun Owners
Last week, Senate Bill 16 was signed into law by Governor Jack Markell (D). Sponsored by Senator Margaret Rose Henry (D-2), Senate Bill 16 imposes onerous requirements on innocent victims of crime, merely because they are gun owners. SB 16 requires a gun owner to notify law enforcement if a firearm was stolen or lost within an arbitrary time period, and carries severe penalties and fines for violations. This legislation is highly discriminatory, an excessive waste of taxpayer funds and law enforcement resources, will not impact crime and is opposed by the NRA. This legislation went into effect immediately upon the Governor’s signature on June 12.

California: Vote to Ban Traditional Ammunition to be Heard in Senate Committee on Monday
Assembly Bill 711 would make California the first state in the nation to prohibit the use of all lead ammunition for hunting. This bill’s next stop is in the state Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday, June 23, when it is expected to be brought up for a vote. We need a strong voice of opposition to AB 711. Extensive research has shown that traditional lead ammunition does NOT pose a health hazard for hunters. In order to save California’s hunting heritage, all hunters, recreational shooters and gun owners MUST actively oppose AB 711. We strongly urge you to contact each member of the state Senate Appropriations Committee listed below. Please forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow sportsmen and gun owners throughout California and urge them to do the same.

The NSA, guns and privacy in the Obama administration
"You just worry that you're going to see searches of the databases and an expansion for purposes that were not intended when the information was collected," theorized Chris Calabrese, an American Civil Liberties Union privacy lobbyist.Interestingly, those were concerns raised in April, two months ago, during the debate over the expansion of background checks for all commercial gun sales and the fear that the government would create a national gun registry.Recent polling shows that privacy concerns that were raised in April have only intensified as a result of recent revelations of increased government surveillance and interference. In particular, the disclosure, by the media and not the administration, of surveillance on domestic and foreign targets, journalists and media outlets, and select scrutiny on specific conservative organizations has caused the American people to now question Obama's character and brand.

Bill would block Justice's tracking of border state gun sales

Illinois: NRA ready to fight assault weapons bans

Maine Legislature passes bill burdening private transfers
In a surprise vote Wednesday, the Maine Senate passed a bill that creates civil penalties for those who sell guns in private sales to people who are prohibited from having them.The legislation imposes a civil fine of $500 if a gun seller does not perform a background check and the buyer is later discovered to be a prohibited person.
