NRA via Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
NRA will appeal the recent decision by a federal court in Texas, which held that the Second Amendment doesn't protect any right to keep or bear arms outside the home. The decision, handed down by U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings of the Northern District of Texas, came in the case of Jennings v. McCraw, in which a group of law-abiding 18- to 20-year-old adults challenged the state law prohibiting issuance of concealed handgun licenses to persons under 21, who are treated as adults for virtually every other purpose under the law.

The Senate Courts of Justice Committee approved a measure that would eliminate Virginia's one-gun-a-month restriction on handgun purchases, setting up what could be the most significant change to Virginia's gun laws in years. The committee deferred until next year consideration of a bill that would exempt from state background checks long guns and rifles purchased from gun dealers, and a senator withdrew from consideration a bill that would have restricted public colleges and universities from enacting regulations to bar the carrying of firearms on campus.

The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An Oak Park Board of Health meeting in Illinois attracted the attention of gun rights advocates across the state, who fear the village may approve laws they say unfairly restrict gun owners' rights and could be duplicated elsewhere in the state.
