  3. Today is the first of three scheduled days remaining in the 2022 Veto Session. When the legislature last met, the Senate moved HB5004 Noncitizen Statutory Reference out of the Assignments Committee and placed it back on the calendar at third reading. As introduced, the bill replaces the word “alien” with “noncitizen” in various areas of Illinois law along with other stylistic changes, including in the FOID Act. House Amendment 1 introduces further euphemisms by deleting “noncitizen” and/or changing “noncitizen” to “individual”. We'll continue to list both “assault weapon” bills in our daily topics, with little to no expectation of seeing movement on either. The House is scheduled for 12:00 Noon today and the Senate for at time to be determined. Next Days Scheduled House: 11/30/2022 Senate: 11/30/2022 House Calendar Senate Calendar
  4. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/nov/25/how-many-americans-carry-guns-daily Six million Americans carried guns daily in 2019, twice as many as in 2015 The trend is expected to continue, after the supreme court ruling earlier this year overturning strict limits on public gun-carrying An estimated 6 million American adults carried a loaded handgun with them daily in 2019, double the number who said they carried a gun every day in 2015, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Public Health. The new estimates highlight a decades-long shift in American gun ownership, with increasing percentages of gun owners saying they own firearms for self-defense, not hunting or recreation, and choosing to carry a gun with them when they go out in public, said Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington, and the study’s lead author. ... While recent surveys show that nearly a third of American adults say they personally own a gun, the percentage who choose to regularly carry a firearm in public is smaller, with about a third of handgun owners, or an estimated 16 million adults, saying they carried a loaded handgun in public at least once a month, and an estimated 6 million saying they did so daily, the study found. But public gun-carrying has appeared to increase rapidly in recent years. A 2015 study by the same researchers, using the same methodology, had found that 3 million adults said they carried a loaded handgun daily, and 9 million did so once a month. Today, the number of adults carrying a gun daily is probably even higher than the 2019 estimate, thanks to a record-breaking increase in gun sales during the pandemic, Rowhani-Rahbar said. “We have every reason to believe this is a trend that is probably going to continue,” he added. ... Demographically, those who chose to carry a gun in public in 2019 were more likely to live in the south, the study found. Four in five gun carriers were male, and three in four were white, Rowhani-Rahbar said. Other demographic factors, like education and household income, did not make a difference in whether gun owners chose to carry their guns in public or not, he said. About a quarter of the gun carriers had a household income of at least $125,000 a year, and nearly a third had graduated from college, the researchers found. Only about 8% of handgun owners and carriers were at the lowest income level, making less than $25,000 a year. ... “The country has been moving as a whole, in the past two or three decades, very clearly and dramatically toward loosening gun-carrying laws,” Rowhani-Rahbar said. Rowhani-Rahbar’s study found that a lower percentage of gun owners chose to carry in public in states that had very strict carrying laws, but that there wasn’t a substantial difference between states where it was easy to get a permit and states that required no permit at all. But the handful of large states that had strict carrying laws, including New Jersey and California, are now in the process of changing them, thanks to the supreme court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v Bruen this June, said Adam Skaggs, the policy director at the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which advocates for increased regulation of firearms. “Bruen is only going to accelerate the number of people carrying guns in public,” Skaggs said, noting that, anecdotally, the number of gun-carrying permits being issued in those states is already on the rise. ...
  5. I envy you brother. We let Missouri folks hang around her too, by the way.
  6. https://www.texastribune.org/2022/11/14/texas-judge-domestic-abusers-second-amendment/ Federal judge in Texas rules that disarming those under protective orders violates their Second Amendment rights BY WILLIAM MELHADO A Texas federal judge declared it was unconstitutional to disarm someone who is under a protective order, setting into motion a likely legal fight over who can possess firearms — a move that advocates say could have wide-ranging impacts on gun access across the county. ... The case involves Litsson Antonio Perez-Gallan, who was stopped at a border checkpoint in Presidio while carrying a firearm. Law enforcement found Perez-Gallan had a restraining order issued against him, in which case federal law prohibits the possession of a firearm. (U.S. District Judge David) Counts ruled that the federal government’s disarming of Perez-Gallan did not sufficiently consider the historical context of domestic abuse law when revoking his Second Amendment rights.... “The court said that the way that you’ve got to decide the constitutionality of modern-day gun laws … is not by looking at modern policy considerations, but rather looking at historical laws and trying to analogize specific legal traditions from a very different time and place,” (Southern Methodist University assistant law professor Eric) Ruben said. ... From the opinion: Yet the Court notes that even if § 922(g)(8) is trimmed from the Second Amendment, state court orders still exist. Indeed, the piece of paper that says, “abuser shall not harass, stalk, threaten, approach, or interact with victim” is still effective. So whether or not § 922(g)(8) exists, states still can (and should) make it unlawful to violate restraining orders. In fact, Kentucky state law makes it a crime to violate the conditions of a protective order.131 It follows then that Kentucky authorities could still arrest Defendant and prosecute him. It’s also ridiculous to argue that a second piece of paper, one charging a violation of § 922(g)(8), magically prevents the alleged-abuser from violating the first piece of paper. If that were reality, this case wouldn’t be before the Court. Again, states should punish abusers with the full force of the law. But that does not mean the Government historically has been able to piggyback off state laws to prohibit conduct protected under the Second Amendment.

  11. About a half hour after sending our alert hoping to head off more gun control, I got an ISRA email offering a life member upgrade at a discounted price. I guess we just have different priorities sometimes.

  14. Both House and Senate met briefly yesterday, welcoming new and soon to be new members to their respective chambers, re-acquainting themselves with members who's health kept them from their usual legislative business for extended periods, and remembering a few birthdays. No substantive business was taken up. We'll continue to list both “assault weapon” bills in our daily topics, though both are still in legislative limbo. The House is scheduled for 11:00 AM today and the Senate for 10:00 AM. House Session has been cancelled Thursday, 11/17/2022. Rumor says 11/17 Senate Session may be cancelled as well.
