- SCOTUS to Decide First-Ever Gun-Carry Case: NYSRPA v. Keith M. Corlett, Superintendent of New York State Police.
BUT the Court only granted review to a limited question presented: “Whether the State’s denial of petitioners’ applications for concealed-carry licenses for self-defense violated the Second Amendment.”
FPC sues Tennessee over gun rights of 18-20 year-olds.
An Illinois Circuit Court judge has ruled that the state’s Firearm Owner ID card requirement is unconstitutional for guns kept in a residence.
A three-judge panel on the Ninth Circuit has held that Judge Lasnik of Washington State did not have the authority to stop a State Department rule change upholding the First Amendment on 3D printing. The ruling will lift restrictions on exporting specs for 3D-printed guns, but there will likely be an en banc review by the court, and President Joe Biden announced in early April that the Justice Department would issue new rules for ghost guns within 30 days, making the ruling irrelevant.
But Defense Distributed, via its DEFCAD site, has already made all of its 3D files available to the public. Anyone can download them free of charge and Defense Distributed has released all copyrights on the designs. Have fun.
Action item: Red flag laws. The U.S. Senate is considering gun confiscation from U.S. citizens who have committed no crime.

How gun laws work
The Left is constantly saying we need more laws. But what about the laws we have, which they said we needed? For instance, the one that prohibits lying on the Federal gun purchase form and that prohibits straw purchases and the one that prohibits transfers to minors. I believe one can get 5 to 10 years in federal prison for each count on those felony offenses. Except in this case the guy got 100 DAYS for illegally purchasing the firearm that was used in a murder-suicide at an Air Force Base.
“We need a ban on assault weapons (sic) and high-capacity (sic) magazines again.” – Joe Biden
Because it worked so well the first time?
“In the 90s, we passed universal background checks… …Mass shootings and gun violence declined.” – Joe Biden
Nope. Both lies.
“No amendment to the Constitution is absolute. You can’t yell fire in a crowded theater.” – Joe Biden
Actually, you can – you are free to do that. But there are consequences. And we don’t gag people going into theaters to try to keep them from yelling fire. Besides, what if there IS a fire? Wouldn’t it be good to have that warning? Same with guns.
