Supreme Court Throws Out New York Gun Case, Avoiding Major Second Amendment Ruling | National News | US News

Supreme Court Throws Out New York Gun Case, Avoiding Major Second Amendment Ruling | National News | US News

THE SUPREME COURT ON Monday threw out a gun rights case from New York, avoiding what would have been the first major Second Amendment ruling in a decade.

The court dismissed the case as moot in an unsigned decision, but three conservative justices filed a dissent.

The case centers on now-rescinded New York City rules barring citizens who have a permit to keep a gun in their homes from transporting firearms to firing ranges outside the city or to a second home in the state. Three people and the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, an affiliate of the National Rifle Association, filed a lawsuit arguing that the restrictions were unconstitutional.

The city threw out the restrictions after the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case, and the state of New York then passed a law that would prevent the rules from being reenacted in the future. Those efforts were widely considered acquiescence on the part of the city, and were seen by some as an attempt to render the case moot and prevent the Supreme Court from issuing a major Second Amendment decision.

The court’s brief, two-page decision Monday only stated that the case was now moot. Justice Samuel Alito Jr. dissented, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch.

“By incorrectly dismissing this case as moot, the court permits our docket to be manipulated in a way that should not be countenanced,” Alito wrote.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote to say he agreed with the majority’s opinion but said similar gun rights issues deserve attention from the court.

“The court should address that issue soon, perhaps in one of the several Second Amendment cases with petitions for certiorari now pending before the court,” Kavanaugh wrote.

The case was the first gun rights case the court agreed to hear since the retirement of former Justice Anthony Kennedy, and the addition of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh to the court.

Though the case was extremely narrow in scope, Second Amendment advocates were hopeful that the court would use the case to say something broader about gun rights.

How Often Should You Clean Your Concealed Carry Firearm? – Start Now!

How often should you clean your gun? We all know that firearms require maintenance & cleaning; but how often should you clean your firearms? Some insist that gun cleaning should occur every time one is fired, as well as every few months — whether they’ve been used or not. Others insist that it is fine to leave your rifle or pistol uncleaned even after multiple trips to the range. Who’s right? The answer depends on the type of firearm, what it is primarily used for, and what ammunition and/or elements it has been exposed to. If you are shooting corrosive ammunition, or if the firearm is exposed to water, moisture or other damaging elements, you should always clean your gun as soon as possible.

Furthermore, all firearms should periodically undergo a professional detailed cleaning where the firearm is torn down and thoroughly cleaned, oiled and reassembled. How often this is necessary depends on the number of rounds fired through the gun and the role it typically is used for, but generally a firearm should be detail stripped and cleaned by a professional at least once a year regardless of whether or not they ever made it out of the gun safe at all (because ambient moisture in the air and humidity can cause small rust spots to show up).

Right off the bat, I know what some of you are thinking: “Well, if you’re practicing with it on a regular basis, then you should be cleaning it after a range trip.” I couldn’t agree more, but reality shows us that not everyone can get to the range on a regular basis.

While training regularly is important, it isn’t uncommon for someone to be unable to get to the range for weeks at a time. So, if this is you, how often should you clean your concealed carry firearm if you aren’t actively using it?

If you carry everyday like you should, natural buildup can and will occur inside your firearm if it’s left untouched for weeks on end. This buildup will consist of lint, dirt, and anything else you may come in contact with. The areas where this buildup accumulates may vary, but it will typically happen near the end of the muzzle and around the ejection port (inside and out). If you carry a firearm with a hammer, you may notice buildup around or below the hammer. Pretty much any location can accumulate debris.

So, how often should you clean it?

If it’s a firearm that you carry and you miss out on some range time for an extended period of time, you should clean that firearm every few weeks. If you notice an accumulation of anything at anytime, it is recommended to strip down the firearm and give it a good scrub and re-lube. Give your firearm a good look every few days for any abnormal buildup. It can happen quickly sometimes, and you don’t want that to happen. What if a chunk of lint gets in your firing pin channel? You’ll want that cleaned out.

If it’s a firearm that you carry and go to the range with it often, it’s good practice to clean it after each trip to the range. If you do this, you’ll be able to keep a close eye on any parts that may be wearing, worn or damaged. Plus the more you clean it, the better you’ll get at cleaning it. Each firearm requires different treatment while cleaning (such as points of lubrication), and correct repetition of this isn’t a bad idea.

What about a DEEP CLEAN?

With the above examples, we’re talking about your standard cleaning by field-stripping your firearm, but what about a deep clean? Your firearm has other internal parts that you can’t see without taking other things apart. These areas will also accumulate debris over time and should be touched at least once a year. If you aren’t familiar with the inner workings of your firearm, you should seek out a gunsmith that can perform this cleaning for you.

In the end, a clean firearm is a happy firearm. It’s also a safe firearm. Regular practice of cleaning any and all of your firearms is, to me, an important thing to do. Not only are you protecting your investment by keeping it nice and clean, you’re also making sure that they’re ready to go at a moment’s notice.

Clean your concealed carry firearm as if your life depended on it.

American Rifleman | Walther Arms Launches HEROES VIP Discount Program

American Rifleman | Walther Arms Launches HEROES VIP Discount ProgramAcross the country, firearm and accessory manufacturers have worked within state health guidelines in order to provide a steady stream of guns for those looking to protect themselves and their families in uncertain times, as many are, according to recent NICS numbers.

Companies have also donated time, money and manufacturing space to provide healthcare workers, first responders and essential personnel with the supplies they need to continue working during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, Walther Arms is looking to reward these front-line workers with its HEROES VIP program.

“Over the last several weeks, we have witnessed the countless hours of hard work to keep our families safe and our country moving forward,” said Adam Blalock, CEO of Walther Arms, Inc. “We have all seen examples of real-life heroes at work. That is why we wanted to extend special pricing for our heroes that have dedicated their time to helping others.”

This limited program is open to all first responders, hospital personnel and essential workers and will run to May 25, 2020. To qualify for the program, consumers need only send in a copy of their credentials along with the HEROES VIP form found at waltherarms.com/industry-vip-program/.

A limited number of Walther Arms factory offerings are included under the HEROES VIP deal. One gun offered under the discount is the CCP M2 chambered in .380 ACP, which retails normally at a suggested MSRP of $469. Under the VIP pricing program, the gun sells for $320.

For more information on the VIP program and other offerings from Walther Arms, visit waltherarms.com.

NRA-ILA | Governor Abbott Issues Statewide Covid-19 Order with Exceptions for Firearms Industry and Hunting/Fishing

NRA-ILA | Governor Abbott Issues Statewide Covid-19 Order with Exceptions for Firearms Industry and Hunting/FishingToday, Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order implementing Essential Services and Activities Protocols for Texas that will override previous local orders and be in effect through April 30th.  The protocols allow exceptions for essential activities and services based on the Department of Homeland Security’s guidelines on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce, which includes “workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges.”

The governor also mentioned in his press release that it does not prohibit people from engaging in essential daily activities, such as hunting or fishing, provided that the necessary precautions are maintained to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and to minimize in-person contact with people who are not in the same household.

Thank you, Governor Abbott, for ensuring that Texans’ Second Amendment rights are protected at this time and for allowing recreational activities with firearms to continue in a safe and responsible manner.

Donald Trump, the coronavirus Update Today

Donald Trump, the coronavirus Update TodayDonald Trump, the coronavirus Update Today

The latest on the pandemic

According to Johns Hopkins data, the number of worldwide cases of coronavirus has reached 200,000.

-France, Spain and Italy are on lockdown; Americans have been told to limit gatherings to 10 people.

-Four members of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets have tested positive for the virus, including Kevin Durant.

-Once the hot spot for the virus, China has slowly started to return to normalcy as the number of domestic infections fall.

-The White House and members of Congress have proposed direct cash payments to Americans as people lose jobs and paychecks, but the Senate is yet to pass a smaller bill to fight the virus negotiated by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House.

Meet Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. coronavirus point man who helped save the world from AIDS

He knew at once that something was amiss. “Five young men, all active homosexuals, were treated for biopsy-confirmed Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia at three different hospitals in Los Angeles, California. Two of the patients died,” read the opening of the now infamous Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for June 5, 1981.

“I started to get goose pimples,” Dr. Anthony S. Fauci would later recall. Then a young epidemiologist with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which he now directs, Fauci grasped well before many of his peers that HIV/AIDS, which would kill all five of the men in Los Angeles, was going to kill many more. And even as many in the Reagan administration downplayed the disease as a “gay cancer” that did not deserve the attention of the medical establishment, Fauci understood with tragic clarity that HIV/AIDS was not going to discriminate over its victims.
