2A News (Second Amendment News)

ATF, Enemies, MS Training

Early edition of the 2A News this week so we can observe Good Friday. Remember what it means.


Indiana and Kentucky have joined a group of states that have made it a crime for banks and credit card companies to track purchases of guns and ammunition through the use of a special merchant category code designated for firearms products. Other states with similar laws are Florida, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Texas, Utah and West Virginia. A few others are working on it.

An infographic explaining the process of red flag laws with illustrated steps showing a reported concern about a person potentially causing harm and the subsequent legal and law enforcement actions taken.
  • Last week Vice President and gun-control freak Kamala Harris danced in the blood of victims of the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas massacre – the nation’s worst high school shooting – to announce a new national office – funded to the tune of $750 million from the omnibus spending bill – to support states implementing “red flag” laws to disarm Americans, allegedly because they’ve become some kind of threat, according to their accuser. Specifics vary and many times do not include due process.
  • Meanwhile, an independent commission investigating the failures that preceded the October 25 mass shooting in Lewiston, Maine, released its findings last week. The report primarily faulted the Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office for failing to use Maine’s temporary emergency gun confiscation statute, also known as the “Yellow Flag” law, despite having legal grounds to do so. It also concluded law enforcement had ample grounds to pursue assault charges against the killer for punching a fellow Army reservist in the face six weeks before he killed 18 people in Lewiston, and accused the sheriff’s office of failing to follow up with the shooter’s family to ensure that he was being cared for and that he no longer had access to weapons. Red, yellow, I dunno. Maybe they need a rainbow flag law.
  • And the man who shot and wounded a police officer in a Fort Lauderdale hotel room last week had a history of arrests and mental health problems severe enough that police invoked Florida’s touted “red flag” law to take his guns away two years ago. Apparently that is not the answer.
  • Community Passageways, a Seattle gun violence prevention organization (read gun ban group), is being sued by the family of a man facing robbery charges who was shot and killed at a church during a court-mandated appearance at a meeting as part of a diversion from incarceration program, accusing the group of failing to provide proper security. Maybe they should have called a gun violence prevention organization. Oh, wait…
  • The Mall of America in Bloomington, MN, has long been anti-gun and has also been plagued by shootings in their gun free zone. Now they are employing gun-sniffing dogs to enforce their gun ban. One question: What are they gonna do when they find someone carrying? Try to take it away?
  • Media.

  • Nearly two years after the Associated Press issued a “style tip” to the press that reporters and editors should “avoid (using the terms) ‘assault rifle and assault weapon,'” reporters and newspaper copy editors continue using both terms despite the AP’s admonition that they are “highly politicized terms” that “convey little meaning about the actual functions of the weapon.” One wonders what the AP thinks about the fake term “gun violence.”
  • Follow-up.

Last week we reported that US District Judge Nancy Maldonado of the Northern District of Illinois, now nominated by President Joe Biden for the Seventh US Circuit Court of Appeals, signed an amicus brief defending a Cook County ban on “assault weapons” but couldn’t tell senators what those “assault weapons” are, because she’s “not a gun expert, didn’t write the brief, etc. etc.” It turns out that signing a brief is a serious matter and attests to the fact that the attorney has read the brief and that the information contained in it is accurate and complete. Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure says that a lawyer signing a brief attests that the “factual contentions have evidentiary support.” So… doing what she did sounds quite a lot like perjury to me.


  • Attorneys general of 28 states have a brief with the US Supreme Court in the case of Bevis v City of Naperville, challenging Illinois’ unconstitutional ban of AR-15 rifles and their standard 30-round magazines. The US Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals denied the petition for an injunction pending appeal to en banc review or for a writ of certiorari to the Supreme Court, and denied the request for an en banc hearing. The states are:
    • Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming, and the State Legislatures of Arizona and Wisconsin.
  • Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin vetoed 30 gun-control bills, modified 6 other gun-control bills so that they no longer pose a threat and signed 4 bills that had been modified in the General Assembly to be “neutral.” There are no more gun-control bills left.
