Litigation, NRA, Facts & Figures, Tactics

Action Item

  • The NFL, NHL, MLB, MLS, NBA and NASCAR have been recruited by Chuckie Schumer to lobby for the Undetectable Firearms Act’s reauthorization. You can add your name to GOA’s pre-written letter to sports league officials to tell them to keep their hands off of our Second Amendment rights, here.


  • The 2024 BamaCarry ninth annual “Firearms Freedom Conference” will be on Saturday, February 24, at the Doster Center in Prattville.


A group of people standing in front of a building engaged in litigation tactics.

“The Supreme Court has the ability to find lower courts in contempt. Following a contempt ruling, the SCOTUS has the power to remove offending parties – including the officers of a lower court. It also has the ability to order imprisonment for ‘disobedience or resistance to its lawful writ, process, order, rule, decree or command.’ At that point, federal marshals would be ordered to arrest non-compliant judges. That’s in keeping with the U.S. Constitution, which states: The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.” Well what are they waiting for? And if SCOTUS doesn’t act on this, isn’t that grounds for impeachment of the Supreme Court Justices?

  • The United States Government has filed for a Writ of Certiorari with the United States Supreme Court challenging the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decision to uphold a District Court’s preliminary injunction enjoining the ATF from enforcing the final rule on frames and receivers (Final Rule 2021R-05F). That rule reclassified unfinished frames as firearms subject to federal firearms law and ATF regulation. A gun made from a partially machined frame at home by the owner/end user is not required to have a serial number or “paperwork.” You know, just like guns made at the time of adoption of the Second Amendment.
  • U.S. gun manufacturers plan to ask the US Supreme Court to consider their case to throw out Mexico’s $10 billion lawsuit seeking to hold them responsible for facilitating the trafficking of weapons to drug cartels across the US-Mexico border. The appeal will focus on whether Mexico’s claims are barred by a federal law, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which gives legally-acting gun manufacturers broad protection from lawsuits over the misuse of their products by others. The 1st Circuit ruled last month that while PLCAA can be applied to lawsuits by foreign governments, Mexico’s lawsuit “plausibly alleges a type of claim (illegal activity) that is statutorily exempt from the PLCAA’s general prohibition.” The court said that was because the law was only designed to protect lawful firearms-related commerce, yet Mexico had accused the companies of aiding and abetting illegal gun sales by facilitating the trafficking of firearms into the country. However, we have heard of NO actual evidence of any of the alleged illegal activity by the manufacturers. Perhaps a countersuit is in order.
  • Kaysville, Utah, Police Officer Lacy Turner, who accidentally shot herself while doing firearms training, has filed a lawsuit against the company that manufactured her Blackhawk SERPA holster, claiming there is a history of accidental discharges involving police officers using the same holster but the company continues to sell it. The interesting thing is that part of the allegations include evidence that the cop community knew the SERPA design was “problematic” at least 10 years before the incident in question. So perhaps she made her own mistake.


Miscellaneous facts and figures

  • Major credit card companies are moving to make a merchant code available for firearm and ammunition retailers in order to comply with a new California law that will allow banks to potentially track “suspicious” gun purchases and report them to law enforcement.
  • Chicago plans to stop using the controversial ShotSpotter gunshot detection system later this year. The system, which relies on an artificial intelligence algorithm and network of microphones to identify and located gunshots, has been criticized for inaccuracy, racial bias and law enforcement misuse.
  • Just a reminder about those evil black rifles.
  • A reminder that gun control laws don’t work.
  • 84% of states have a lower violent crime rate in 2022 than they did before permitless concealed carry.

Administration Antics

  • President Joe Biden’s White House will be holding several events focused on combating their so-called “gun violence” in black communities. It appears the planned virtual meetings and round table discussion invitations are limited to black leaders and black elected officials only, to be followed up by a workshop where local and state leaders can learn how to obtain federal resources for New “Community Safety Programs” (read “gun control for minority communities”).

More on the NRA Board election and the corruption trial. By the time you get this, the case likely will have gone to the jury for deliberation.


The Only Ones

  • A San Diego college student living with her grandmother fortunately survived being shot (grazed) in the head after her next-door neighbor, Marine Corps Cpl. Samuel C. Hernandez, 22, fired a bullet through her bedroom wall while he was “practicing” with his Glock 19 pistol. Hernandez – who admitted “being stupid” – was arrested on suspicion of negligently discharging a firearm, according to a police report.
  • Not even a blind pig…

Back in November, former rookie Okaloosa County (FL) Sheriff’s Deputy Jesse Hernandez and his partner, Sergeant Beth Roberts, both opened fire with multiple shots into their own patrol car, trying to hit a detained theft suspect, after Hernandez heard a falling acorn boinking onto the car and mistook it for a gunshot by the unarmed and previously searched suspect. Hernandez also falsely claimed he had been shot. You read that right (pdf link to report).

  • Meanwhile over in the Department of the Navy, the tiara is reinstated as an optional Navy uniform component for all female Sailors (E-1 through O-10) when wearing Dinner Dress Blue and White Jacket Uniforms. I thought the Navy was in the Department of Defense, not the Department of Debutantes.



  • For the second time in less than a week, shots rang out in one of New York City’s “gun-free zones,” this time leaving one person dead and five others injured at a subway station in the Bronx on Monday evening. New York’s gun laws disarm the victims and leave the criminals free to attack with impunity. Meanwhile, a 15-year-old accused of shooting and injuring a tourist while shoplifting last week in Times Square is facing no additional charges for bringing a gun into a “gun free” so-called “sensitive location.” At least one other person accused of opening fire in Times Square since the law took effect in September 2022 was also not charged with violating the new law.
