Gun Control: Will Triggers Soon Make the Gun Illegal?

While it is still pending a committee referral, Hawaii Senator Karl Rhoads’ (D) SB 2046 would make it a crime to own, manufacture, possess, sell, barter, trade, gift, transfer, or acquire a firearm accessory that can be used to increase the gun’s rate of fire.

Federal Court: Involuntary Commitment Not a Disqualifier for 2A Rights

On February 16, 2016, Alton C. Franklin filed suit in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. He contended that a prohibition against his ability to acquire or possess firearms because of a brief involuntary commitment in 2002, was unconstitutional. With a partial summary judgment in his favor, and a re-submission in January of 2017, Mr Franklin prevailed. The law was not struck as unconstitutional, directly. Rather, the Pennsylvania law was ruled to be insufficient to meet the Constitutional requirements of the Federal law.

While the merits of of background checks can be debated, so long as the system is in place, most believe it should include the records that disqualify individuals from buying a firearm—criminal and mental health records that prohibit an individual from owning a firearm. Here’s why is the National Shooting Sports Foundation spearheading FixNICS.

Tough on Crime, Not Guns — Not in California

Meanwhile, criminals who openly victimize the Golden State’s citizens won’t have to worry about carrying that gun to commit their crimes. Gov. Brown says they no longer have to do the added time.
