  6. I wonder if this would be like the "No Fly List", you won't know your on it, you have to go to the Supreme Court to get off of it, and its all a matter of national security so it will cost you a fortune to defend yourself, even if you did nothing by mistake.

  14. I guess Senator Ellman is going to keep trying to find something that works: Senate Amendment 4 to SB3527 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill. Creates the Safe Gun Storage Act. Provides that a firearm owner shall not store or keep any firearm in any premises where the firearm owner knows or reasonably should know a minor without the lawful permission of the minor's parent, guardian, or person having charge of the minor, an at-risk person, or a prohibited person is likely to gain access to the firearm unless the firearm is secured in a locked container, properly engaged so as to render the firearm inaccessible or unusable to any person other than the owner or other lawfully authorized user. Provides that if the firearm is carried by or under the control of the owner or other lawfully authorized user, then the firearm is deemed lawfully stored or kept. Provides that a violation of the Act is subject to a civil penalty not to exceed $500, except (i) if any person knows or reasonably should know that a minor, an at-risk person, or a prohibited person is likely to gain access to a firearm belonging to or under the control of that person, and a minor, an at-risk person, or a prohibited person obtains the firearm, the civil penalty shall not exceed $1,000 and (ii) if a minor, an at-risk person, or a prohibited person obtains a firearm and uses it to injure or cause the death of a person or uses the firearm in connection with a crime, the civil penalty shall not exceed $10,000. Provides that the court may order a person who is found in violation of the Act may be ordered by the court to perform community service or pay restitution in lieu of the civil penalties imposed under this Section if good cause is shown. Provides that nothing in the Act shall be construed to preclude civil liabilities for violations of the Act. Provides that a violation of the Act is prima facie evidence of negligence per se in any civil proceeding if a minor, an at-risk person, or a prohibited person obtains a firearm and causes personal injury to the death of oneself or another or uses the firearm in the commission of a crime. Provides that an action to collect a civil penalty under this Act may be brought by the Attorney General or the State's Attorney of the county in which the violation occurred. Provides that any money received from the collection of a civil penalty under this Act shall be deposited in the Mental Health Fund. Defines terms. In the amendatory changes to the firearms safe storage provisions of the Criminal Code of 2012: (1) changes "under the age of 14 years" to "under the age of 18 years"; (2) deletes references to "firearm ammunition", changes "has reason to believe" to "reasonably should know"; and (3) deletes exemption for placing the firearm in some other location that a reasonable person would believe to be secure from a minor under the age of 14 years.
  15. On May 24, Corina Camacho renewed her federal lawsuit against the Uvalde school district, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and 100 "John Doe" cops. According to the news article, she (along with other families) renewed a (separate) lawsuit against Daniel Defense in Uvalde County Court (38th District Court of Texas). The TX state court appears not to make its dockets available online. The federal lawsuit is Camacho v The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District. I like relief b, effectively, to the extent anything justifies their inaction, declare that justification unconstitutional. I understand the sentiment, but that's quite an uphill battle. I've posted on it before, but very few states make dereliction of duty a crime. (Illinois doesn't, for example.) States that do make it a crime make it a misdemeanor. This lawsuit is not a criminal prosecution, but absent a criminal act they're going to have to rely on community outrage for a favorable verdict. Community outrage probably won't withstand appeal.
  16. Yesterday
  17. Senate Supplemental Calendar 2 is also available.
  18. What we need is ACTUAL consequences for infringements and violation of the constitution. THE FEAR OF GOD on the these sumbeeches so they never attempt it again.
  19. Its one thing to get ruled against after what you thought was a clean self defense shot. Its a whole other level when you do something this dumb.
  20. The House is recessed for committees, to return later today.
  21. The House has concurred in Senate Amendment 1 to HB2323 Uniform Crime Statistics Data. The bill will now make it's way to the Governor's desk.
