A very sincere Thank You.
U.S. District Judge John Sinatra, Jr. has again issued a preliminary injunction against New York’s ban on guns in churches. The order in the case Hardaway v. Nigrelli is effective immediately and comes two weeks after a temporary restraining order was issued in this case. Read the judge’s comments.
Another federal judge has blocked New York officials from enforcing several other provisions of the state’s new concealed carry law. U.S. District Judge Glenn T. Suddaby temporarily stopped state officials from requiring applicants for concealed carry licenses to show “good moral character.” He also halted a provision that applicants must provide names and contact information of their spouse or any other adults or children in the home. That case is Antonyuk v. Hochul.
Florida U.S. District Judge Allen Winsor of the Northern District of Florida has ruled that a federal ban on gun possession by state-legal medical marijuana users is “consistent with this Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation.”
ATF still running amuck.
UK lead ban?
The UK is considering a ban on all lead projectiles in all habitats due to environmental concerns. Exceptions for police and the military. Well, if you ban most guns, I guess you might as well ban most ammo.
A new study report published in the Journal of Surgical Research, “Legal Firearm Sales at State Level and Rates of Violent Crime, Property Crime, and Homicides,” found no correlation between increased legal gun sales and increased violent crime rates. The study by a team of physicians and medical researchers found that “it is unclear if efforts to limit lawful firearm sales would have any effect on rates of crime, homicide, or injuries from violence committed with firearms.”
A general multiple linear regression model using log event rates was used to assess the effect of firearm sales on crime and homicide rates. Additional modeling was then performed on a state basis using an autoregressive correlation structure with generalized estimating equation estimates for standard errors to adjust for the interdependence of variables year to year within a particular state.
It turns out that the team had much difficulty with getting the scientific study published in a medical publication due to the health care industry’s extreme bias against guns. Dr. Lott did a study on just that.

President Joe Biden, who recently issued a mass pardon for low-level marijuana offenders, says cannabis consumption should not be treated as a crime. But at the same time, his administration defends the federal ban on gun possession by marijuana users, arguing that Second Amendment rights are limited to “law-abiding citizens.”
Meanwhile, after most of this week’s election results were posted, President Biden said “I’m gonna ban assault weapons, or try like the devil.”
