2A News (Second Amendment News)

Litigation, Enemies, Tactics, Obits


  • There will probably be some gun-related SCOTUS decisions rendered yesterday and today, after publication deadline for this week’s newsletter.
  • The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty has filed a lawsuit against Steven Little in his official capacity as Acting Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR), demanding the Court temporarily and permanently enjoin enforcement of Wis. Admin. Code § NR 20.05(2), which states “No person may…[p]ossess or control any firearm, gun or similar device at any time while on the waters, banks or shores that might be used for the purpose of fishing.”
  • Families of survivors of the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas, have filed bogus lawsuits against UPS and FedEx for allegedly violating state and federal law and their own corporate safety standards.
  • Observer Stephen Wenger notes: “Reportedly, there was an apparently discontinued ‘snap-on’ version of the Hellfire trigger that was found in one of the classrooms but no evidence that it had been used. At that, while it might have allowed a faster rate of fire, it would not have converted an AR-pattern rifle to fully automatic and its unclear, when the rifle was already manufactured as semi-automatic, how it would have converted it to a semi-automatic weapon. While Hellfire ended shipments of their Gen 2 and Snap On triggers last July, those devices were both legal and not restricted as either Title II or Title I Weapons, hence no age requirement was in place nor any restriction on interstate shipment. My recollection is that the murderer waited until his 18th birthday to purchase two AR-pattern rifles online and regardless if it was FedEx or UPS who delivered them, they were delivered to a licensed dealer, where background checks were cleared for the transfers, hence the murderer would have already passed his 18th birthday when he took possession of them. There is no requirement for shipping companies to predict or determine to whom a firearm that is shipped between licensed manufacturer, distributors and retail vendors will eventually be sold. As to the federal Gun Free School Zones Act, the act exempts both possession and discharge of a firearm on private property not part of school grounds. This latest lawsuit strikes me simply as a ploy to pressure FedEx and UPS to further restrict the shipment of firearms and firearm accessories.”
  • Hunter Biden’s conviction and SCOTUS (opinion). An appeal is expected.
  • Meanwhile, President Joe Biden called for more gun control just three hours after his son’s conviction on three felony gun charges. (President Biden once signed a bill to increase penalties for one of the charges his son was just convicted of.)
  • A US Ninth Circus Court of Appeals panel ruled Tuesday to uphold California laws banning gun shows at county fairs and other public properties in a 3-0 decision, saying that the two measures do not violate the rights of firearm sellers or buyers. The ruling overturns a federal district judge’s ruling in October that blocked the laws.

  • FBI officials conducting a top-secret security clearance review for a longtime employee asked witnesses whether that employee was known to support former President Donald Trump, if he had expressed concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine or had attended a Second Amendment rally. The employee’s security clearance was then revoked.
  • Staying busy, the FBI Office of Congressional Affairs provided a Democrat staffer with information on FBI whistleblowers who detailed the bureau’s targeting of political opponents and retaliation for their testifying at a May 18, 2023, hearing of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.
  • A new gun ban group called Police Leaders for Community Safety says it “strongly supports the Constitution and all its amendments,” but it doesn’t.
  • An anti-gun far-left Swedish non-government organization known as Humanium Metal was destroying firearms at a Maine police department at Old Orchard Beach. The firearms had been collected as part of a push by the disarmament group the Maine Gun “Safety” Coalition, which oversaw the destruction event, apparently along with the police department. Humanium Metal reportedly specializes in the safe disposal of firearms. I guess not. In the process of destruction, one of the firearms – a muzzle loading rifle – discharged, shooting two cars.

The Only Ones

  • NYPD public information unit Officer Hieu Tran, 27, has been arrested for allegedly shooting another driver with his department-issued pistol in an apparent road rage incident last month in Voorhees Township, New Jersey. Tran is charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault and second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
  • San Antonio PD Officer David Mahula – who apparently broke no laws – was fired after officials say he took two shotguns and one handgun sold by residents during a city gun “buyback” program and placed them in his personal vehicle. The SAPD is examining all the collected weapons from the event, and those that are traceable and found to have been stolen will be returned to the legal owner, while the rest – bought with public funds – will be destroyed. There’s your crime.
  • In Seattle, off-duty security guard Aaron Brown Myers, 51, has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree assault after prosecutors allege he fatally shot a 17-year-old six times in the back and held another teen at gunpoint. The victim and his friends were attempting to return a toy gun, mistaken by the guard as a real firearm, to a sporting goods store. Even if it had been a real gun, apparently there was zero threat. Also, it’s not Myers’ first rodeo.

Tactics & Stuff


  • Melvin Forbes, 77, of Ultra Light Arms fame passed away June 5, 2024.
  • Longtime gun writer Mike “Duke” Venturino, 75, passed away June 9, 2024, at his Montana home after a brief illness related to the heart problems he’s had for decades.



  • Federal has added a .25 ACP, 45-grain solid load to its Punch defensive ammo lineup. If you insist on using a .25, this is probably the one to use. About $1 a pop.
  • G9 Defense’s new .308 Win 145 gr. Barrier Blind Solid Copper Hollow Point ammunition is claimed to provide exceptional barrier penetration, great expansion and 18″ of penetration with nearly 100% weight retention, as well as zero to minimal deflection through windshields, car doors and big game animals’ bones.
  • High Desert Cartridge has three new .32 H&R Magnum loadings available: a 98-grain wadcutter-style bullet at 805 fps, a 100-grain Hornady XTP jacketed hollow-point at 850 fps, and a 100-grain TMJ coming soon. $40-$50 per box of 50. Since those velocities are very low, I went to their website and found that other high velocity rounds there also have low velocities listed. Cases in point: .357 Mag./158 gr. @ ~900 fps, and .41 Mag./210 gr. @ 850-900 fps.
  • Armasight’s new Jockey Series Thermal Clip-on Optic allows you to convert your standard scoped daytime rifle setup into a cutting-edge Thermal platform. It mounts on your rail in front of your existing 1-6x day scope with no additional zeroing required, and works with most optics under 5x magnification. $2500-3800, depending on model.
  • Meprolight’s new Mepro MPO family of six micro pistol optics offers the choice of an RMR or RMSc/JPoint® footprint to fit most popular pistols. Models are available with either an open emitter or closed emitter system, automatic brightness control, and automatic power-saving mode with shake awake feature.
  • Camo company Realtree has jumped the shark by teaming up with GUESS Originals to launch a line of “trendy streetwear with an outdoorsy EDGE.” The new Realtree X GUESS Originals brand collaboration will be offered in Realtree EDGE and EDGE Pink patterns.
  • Bersa is now making AR15 rifles and pistols.
