LOSE YOUR RECORDS, LOSE YOUR RIGHTS: IL passes anti-gun FOID ‘Modernization’ bill with the help of the Illinois State Rifle Association

It is with a heavy heart that I must report that the NRA’s state affiliate in the Land of Lincoln negotiated a new bill to modernize the state’s much-hated Firearm Owner Identification Card Act.  The Illinois State Rifle Association then went neutral on the newly-inserted gun control language, tacitly supporting HB562‘s passage while every other gun rights organization in...

‘RESTORATIVE JUSTICE’ FAIL: Dope-dealer felon from ‘restorative justice’ court with week-old bullet wound flees cops in bullet-ridden car

0

“Restorative justice,” “affordable bail,” a bullet-riddled car and a dysfunctional justice system in Chicago all collided this weekend in Lori Lightfoot’s Murder City USA.   It’s so complicated and messed up that I’m just going to let CWB Chicago (which should be among your daily reads online) explain.    Again, from CWB Chicago: The driver of a bullet-riddled car that fled from...

The Supremes Vote 9-0 Against Warrantless Gun Confiscation From a Home

The Supremes Vote 9-0 Against Warrantless Gun Confiscation From a Home

By Mike Keleher Well this is a bit of a powerful statement by the U.S. Supreme Court this week. In a rare decision that is decided unanimously, the judges put their combined foot down and declared a police confiscation of privately owned firearms in a residence to have been unconstitutional per the 4th Amendment to the Constitution. So it’s...

BATF Publishes New Proposed Firearm Definitions. Now Open For Public Comment

By Mike Keleher Well the BATF document looking to re-define and ban new 80% firearm frame sales which was leaked two weeks ago, has been formally published- a few days early. Hmmm. Wonder if the leak had anything to do with that? In official Washington speak, BATF posted on their website atf.gov: “On May 7, 2021, the Attorney General...
