Federal court upholds ATF gun reporting requirement for border state FFLs
GUNS
The controversial 2011 requirement by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives for gun dealers along the U.S.-Mexico border to report two or more rifle sales made within five days has been upheld by a federal court Monday. The case came after a letter was issued to Federal Firearms License holders in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas that instructed them to report to ATF whenever, during a five business day period, the same eligible buyer purchases two or more semi-automatic rifles chambered higher than .22 caliber.

Adam Winkler, a constitutional law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, noted recently that the Supreme Court has been ducking gun-rights cases. In 2008, the Supreme Court for the first time declared that individuals have a Second Amendment right to keep a handgun in the home. The justices expanded on that 5-4 ruling two years later, clarifying that it applied to all states. Then the court became, well, gun-shy.

Judge puts D.C. handgun ruling on hold
The Washington Post
A federal judge delayed a ruling overturning the District's long-standing ban on carrying handguns in public, once again making it illegal to have firearms on city streets.
