  1. Were there excess taxes on guns and ammo in 1791? If there were (there wasn’t), were said taxes used to “fund” other government pet projects? Nope. Case closed
  2. Oh, and regarding repeating arms and capping magazines (“that’s too many rounds!!!”), meet the Girardoni rifle. Unlike the pucklengun, this rifle was non-stationary and is a traditional style rifle. It had the rate of fire of a lever action and the magazine held 20 rounds. It was designed for military use and Ben Franklin’s people even had one. There were no restrictions for civilian use and ownership either, obviously. Lewis from the Lewis & Clark expedition carried one too on his cross country journey. When was this “hi-capacity” repeating rifle invented? 1779, 12 years before the 2A was ratified. Thus, the “the founders could never envision such firearms with large capacity and fast rate of fire” argument any anti-gun judge or lawyer would use is null and void (looking at you, Cook Co, Highland Park and Deerfield) https://www.defensemedianetwork.com/stories/the-girandoni-air-rifle/
  3. Time for all the IL 2A groups to get busy. Groundwork laid to kill FOID and MANY other laws https://www.sfgate.com/politics/article/scotus-threatens-california-gun-laws-17260774.php?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Supreme Court puts almost all of California's gun control laws in danger The ruling will have significant impacts in California beyond only concealed carry laws, UCLA law professor Adam Winkler told SFGATE. "It's fair to say this ruling will have its biggest effects in states like California with more restrictive gun laws," said Winkler, who is the author of "Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America." "This is the beginning of a period where we’ll see a wide variety of California gun laws called into question, if not struck down entirely."
  4. https://www.courthousenews.com/policymakers-picking-through-the-pieces-of-supreme-courts-gun-rights-expansion/ WASHINGTON (CN) — The rigorous permitting scheme to carry a concealed weapon in New York may have been the issue that brought the Second Amendment to the Supreme Court for the first time in a decade, but experts warn that the court’s ruling Thursday creates a framework under which all gun laws will now have to be evaluated. What was once considered settled law may now be on the chopping block. “What this means is that we’re going to see a parade of litigation challenging what we would otherwise think of as fairly well settled legal restrictions on who can possess weapons, where they can be carried, what kind of weapons are protected,” professor Darrell Miller from Duke Law said in a phone call. “We’re going to see a parade of litigation that will say that these regulations are insufficiently analogous to some kind of regulation that existed around 1791 or thereabouts.”
  5. It also means that, since “unregulated” homemade firearms were around and common in the 18th century, that “ghost gun” bans are unconstitutional too

  7. Morons. Can’t think two steps ahead it seems and see what the end goal is
  8. ^^ Larry Keane of NSSF is who made the announcement. I’m sure more will come out, but wouldn’t surprise me if the Biden admin is tying stuff in to current contracts to remain contracts to the government. Further too, they went after m855 under Obama but used the ATF instead of squeezing them through contracts. Even further, Biden had already proved he wants to cut the ammonia supply to civilians, which is the only reason he banned imported Russian made ammo, which is the cheapest
  9. Guys like Biden and the current Democratic Party sure make the case as to why the 2a exists in the first place.... https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/breaking-biden-administration-moves-to-cut-off-lake-city-223-5-56-ammo-from-the-commercial-market/
