Louisiana: Legislature Adjourns After Passing Many Pro-Gun Reforms
The Louisiana Legislature adjourned sine die on Thursday, June 6, after taking final action on a number of pro-Second Amendment bills in the last week of session.

New Jersey: Assembly Considering Misguided Gun Control This Week
Only weeks after some anti-gun state Senators were caught on a live microphone discussing the need for “confiscation” of firearms after a Senate Budget Committee hearing, their Assembly colleagues fumbled through an embarrassing hearing this week on Senate Bill 2723/Assembly Bill 4182. The New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee failed to garner enough votes to pass the centerpiece gun control bill offered by Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3).

South Carolina: Self-Defense Bill Delayed Until Next Legislative Session
This week, the South Carolina Legislature took several actions regarding Senate Bill 308, the Restaurant Carry bill introduced by state Senator Sean Bennett (R-38). On Wednesday, after making several significant improvements, the state House passed S 308 and this bill was then returned to the state Senate for a concurrence vote. Unfortunately, time was running out on the legislative session and this bill became bogged down with delaying tactics designed to kill it for the year. At 5 p.m. on Thursday, the South Carolina Legislature adjourned for the year before the state Senate could act on the amended version of S 308

New Mexico: Your Santa Fe City Council is Attempting to Ban Standard Capacity Magazines
The Santa Fe City Council is currently considering an ordinance that would ban the future possession, sale or transfer of any ammunition feeding device that accepts, or can be readily converted to accept, more than ten rounds.

Rhode Island: Concealed Carry Attack Stalls in Committee, But This Bill is Still Alive
On Tuesday, House Bill 6160 was heard in the House Judiciary Committee. After vocal opposition and testimony from gun owners, this committee voted to “hold the bill for further study.” This procedural move keeps this legislation alive, but it does not advance in the legislative process without further action.

Maine: Two Anti-Gun Measures Defeated, While Two Bills Attacking Private Firearm Transfers Could Be Considered on Monday
After being defeated on first reading in the state Senate, the state House successfully defeated two egregious anti-gun proposals this week:

Wisconsin: Assembly Unanimously Approves Bill to Increase Hunter Opportunity
Yesterday, in an overwhelming display of support, the Wisconsin Assembly unanimously approved a bill of importance to sportsmen and hunters in the Badger State, Assembly Bill 194. AB 194, sponsored by state Representative Mary Czaja (R-35), would allow all hunters the opportunity to use a crossbow during the same time period as the big game archery season. This bill would help increase hunter participation and preserve Wisconsin’s rich hunting heritage.

Stabbed woman fights off attacker, WXMI, Grand Rapids, Mich. 05/22/13
Samantha Minehart was out feeding the horses on her family’s property in Castleton Township, Mich. when she was attacked by a knife-wielding criminal. The attacker stabbed Minehart in the stomach and leg, and put the knife to her throat, warning her not to “do anything stupid.” Minehart responded by drawing a gun and firing at the attacker, causing him to flee. Minehart was carrying a firearm because the family has had recent trouble with trespassers on their property. The family believes they have been targeted because Minehart’s deceased father was a public safety officer in Kalamazoo, Mich.

Bill Introduced to "Get State Department Out of the Gun Control Business"
As longtime readers--and especially gun collectors--know, the State Department has often stood in the way of importing historic military firearms from overseas. The issue was highlighted early in the Obama administration, when the department first approved, and then denied, the importation and sale of collectible, American-made M1 Garand rifles and M1 carbines originally furnished to South Korea by the United States government. While the current State Department has cited concerns that the M1s will end up being used to commit crimes, these rifles are legal to make and purchase in the United States. Millions were made, and they are highly regarded for their historical significance. The federal government even authorizes the sale of M1 Garand rifles and M1 carbines to collectors and marksmanship competitors through the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

A Prescription for Gun Control Supporters in Massachusetts
We're not doctors and we're certainly not licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts. But if we were, we'd have some age-old device to give to gun control supporters in the Bay State's legislature, who are demanding that more gun control laws be imposed on top of unusually restrictive laws already in effect there: "Take a dose of common sense and call us in the morning." Evaluating the patient's history, we would find that Massachusetts used to have almost the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation. Until 1998, that is, when it made its laws even more restrictive, while in most states gun control restrictions were being eliminated or made less severe. And since Massachusetts tightened its gun laws 15 years ago, the numbers and per capita rates of firearm-related murders have increased there, while decreasing in the nation as a whole.

Nevada: Gov. Sandoval's office barraged with calls to veto gun control bill
Although the governor for months has said he will veto the bill, 2,200 people called his office between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday, a day after the National Rifle Association asked gun control opponents to call and let him “hear your opposition.” Four out of five calls have been for the veto.

Guns and grade-school panic
The specter of school shootings has brought a too typical staple to local newspaper sections: the boys disciplined at (or suspended from) grade school for bringing a toy gun or anything resembling a gun. The Washington Post just found the latest wild overreaction, from Calvert County, Md., a blue state that's cracked down on gun rights. "A kindergartner who brought a cowboy style cap gun onto his Calvert County school bus was suspended for 10 days after showing a friend the orange tipped toy, which he had tucked inside his backpack on his way to school," according to the family.

Amid scandals, Joe Biden doubles down on gun control
Vice President Joe Biden is pushing aside the scandals plaguing his boss to renew his war on guns, an unusual doubling down on a key fight the administration was humiliated on just two months ago.

Anti-Gun Researchers Saddling Up to Ride Again
With the racetrack dust having barely settled after this year's Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, and with the final leg of the Triple Crown--the Belmont Stakes--scheduled for this weekend, we can't help but marvel at the incredible ability of a horse, with 120 pounds on its back, to sustain better than a 35 mph pace over up to 1½ miles, often topping 40 mph in the home stretch. But no matter how big an appetite the world's fastest three-year-old Thoroughbreds work up during "the most exciting two minutes in sports," they haven't got a thing on gun control supporters in the public health field, when it comes to jockeying for position at the feeding trough. That's because the feeding trough the gun control supporters are galloping toward isn't one that's filled with oats; it's one that President Obama wants filled with your tax dollars. In January, Obama issued a memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop a new "gun violence" research agenda "to improve knowledge of the causes of gun violence, the interventions that prevent gun violence, and strategies to minimize the public health burden of gun violence," and asked Congress to fund the research to the tune of $10 million.

U.N. Arms Treaty a Direct Threat to American Gun Ownership
The global organization Oxfam America has long served as a reliable cheerleader for nearly all misguided United Nations policy. And a recent op ed piece by Oxfam America President Raymond Offenheiser, appearing on The, offers a splendid illustration. Offenheiser wants us to simultaneously believe the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty is both the single most important tool to cracking down on war crimes, and that the treaty has absolutely no teeth whatsoever. That's twisted logic for sure. In reality, the ATT directly threatens the Second Amendment rights and privacy of American gun owners. NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox also wrote a recent article on the treaty for The Hill. If you want the truth about the ATT and its direct threat to American gun ownership, please read the article here.
