  1. According to web.archive.org (in January 2022, the last capture): Standard Delivery Standard is our economic shipping option. $6.00 on orders less than 1 pound, $7.00 on orders greater than 1 pound (free for Edge members). Expect 5-7 Business days for delivery. Standard service ships with USPS final delivery and must be shipped to a valid Postal Address. Delivery methods may include USPS, SmartPost, SurePost, or UPS Mail Innovations. This option is unavailable for FFL items, Limited Quantity (LQ), aerosol and hazardous products that have carrier restrictions. Ground Delivery We’ll ship anywhere in the lower 48 states for only $11.00 (up to 200 lbs). Expect 3-5 Business days for delivery. Delivery methods may include FedEx, UPS, or USPS. Ground Shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the US Territories is through USPS Priority. Orders shipping via USPS Priority and over 5lbs will require an additional $10 charge. There are a small number of products that don't qualify for our Ground Delivery Program.

  2. There's nothing to stop any cop from doing anything at any time, even if the cop is committing a crime by doing so. Laws and courts don't stop criminals without badges from committing crimes. They don't stop criminals with badges from committing crimes, either. Suing his department after the fact is the judicial remedy. Maybe his department would fire him or refer the matter to a prosecutor or not. Live as if you are free.
  3. Unseen they walk among thee in places where the rites have been said. Again as time passes onward shall they take the semblance of men.
  4. It seems like the lasting effect of the 2A Arms case is going to be an injunction against the ban on laser sights in Chicago. Chicago Sun-Times
  5. There's been movement in this case, so it's time to update what has happened since the 4th amended complaint was filed in 2014. 28 Sep 2015 - Based on Chicago's motion for summary judgment to dismiss, the judge ruled both for and against the plaintiffs on some of the counts in the lawsuit. What remains: Count I: 2A Arms may seek monetary damages for lost revenue from the 2010 ban on gun stores Count III: plaintiffs may seek to enjoin the ban on the ability to sell or possess laser sights Count IV: plaintiffs may seek to enjoin burdensome storage requirements Count VII: plaintiffs may seek to have various city codes declared as unconstitutional 22 Oct 2015 - The judge granted the ability to file a 5th amended complaint. It was never filed. 27 Apr 2016 - Zieman moved out of state. He was removed as a plaintiff. Zieman was the plaintiff for Count IV (storage requirements), which was therefore dimissed. (Counts I, III, and VII remain.) 12 Oct 2016 - Plaintiffs were granted orders of protection. 29 Aug 2017 - Chicago sought to have Count I dismissed. It wasn't dismissed. 10 Mar 2020 - Chicago sought to have Counts I and III dismissed. They weren't dismissed. 27 Jun 2022 - The judge announced that he has an opinion drafted. However, he is seeking additional briefs from the parties in light of the NYSRPA v Bruen decision, particularly regarding the issue of laser sights. (Somehow Count VII seems to have disappeared. It's no longer mentioned.)
  6. Same as UPS refusing to ship Brownell's parts (and others). Merge?
  7. It could be ISP's attempt at: If that's what they're trying to do, it's a horrible implementation.
  8. The Dagger is PSA's new Glock 19 clone.
  9. Brownell's FB page doesn't list a post, so Brownell's deleted it or FB deleted it or SAF was looking at the wrong page. I'm disinclined to think SAF lied. Considering the legal implications for items already in shipment, I could see Brownell's deleting it pending a dispute resolution. I could also imagine a rogue UPS employee (or random prankster) sending out unauthorized notices. The Friday before a holiday weekend would be a good time for that.
  10. Second Amendment Foundation When I click the link to Brownell's FB post, I get "Content not found."
  11. There's a previous thread here on IL Carry, which also contains very little info. First Reddit thread Second Reddit thread
  12. Think CTA/Metra/Pace, but other (non-federal) public transport is probably good, too.
  13. I think Hernandez is more likely to do whatever Chuy tells her to do than whatever the national (or even state) Democratic platform is, at least until Chuy becomes the new Madigan and starts telling everybody what to do.
  14. I doubt that the deputy didn't arrest someone who pointed a firearm at him, but the story doesn't say. It's possible that the deputy was alone and chose to get backup before attempting an arrest. Meanwhile the sheriff got a red flag order. We only know that the sheriff got a red flag order in that case, because court records show he did. The point of the story is that sheriffs who supposed bought in to the sanctuary county idea are using red flag laws. In CO, on a county by county basis, it's over half the counties (20 of 37).
  15. AHA = American Hospital Association, HHS = The Department of Health and Human Services The case is AHA v HHS. Federal law lays out how hospitals can be reimbursed for drugs prescribed to Medicare patients. In 2018 and 2019, the HHS decided to reimburse hospitals that serve low-income populations less. The power to restrict Medicare payments based on the class of hospital or its type of patients is not included in the law, so AHA sued, won in district court, lost in circuit court, and finally won in a 9-0 Supreme Court ruling last week. The EPA case is WV v EPA, which is actually a consolidation of 4 cases. Section 111 of the Clean Air Act of 1970 directs the EPA to use what it considers the "Best System of Emission Reduction" (BSER) to reduce overall pollution levels. It outlines 3 options: using "cleaner" coal-fired power production, shifting to natural gas production, and shifting to carbon-neutral production. The intent was to grandfather existing coal plants while newer, non-coal plants were built, eventually phasing out coal. (There weren't supposed to be new coal plants.) In 2015, the EPA used Section 111 to cap carbon emissions from power plants on a per-facility basis to expedite the end of coal-fired power. Interestingly, the Biden administration had announced a different plan, attempting to get this case mooted. (Remember the NYSRPA v NYC case and how it got mooted?) The Supreme Court did not moot the case. In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that Section 111 did not give the EPA the power to devise individual facility caps. So how does all of that apply to the NFA and the ATF's bump stock rule? First, the above cases don't nullify the NFA. The above cases apply the Medicare and Clean Air laws, which are acts of Congress, to their respective cases. NFA is an act of Congress. There might be basis in the NYSRPA ruling to challenge the NFA, but that will be a different case. Second, the issue is what the NFA actually says. (The NFA defines machine gun as firing multiple shots with a single trigger pull.) Alternatively, the charter of the ATF (which I haven't read) gives it regulatory power. So between the NFA and the ATF charter, how much power is actually spelled out for the ATF? Does the ATF have the power to define (redefine) what a single trigger pull is? Unless there are orders released next week that were decided this week, we're going to have to wait at least until October to see if this case gets a grant.
  16. IllinoisCarry is primarily a lobby organization, not a legal action organization, although it has been involved (at least) in the Miller v Walker case. Locally, ISRA has been the elephant in the room. I suppose GSL is an option. Otherwise it's SAF, FPC, and GOA.
  17. If a person commits a crime with a firearm, law enforcement can seize that firearm, but not necessarily all firearms the perpetrator may own. Due process requires that the perpetrator at least be arraigned before his civil liberties can be suspended (e.g., surrendering all firearms as a condition of bond) or have a hearing to determine mental competence, if that's the complaint. Red Flag laws short-circuit that by allowing law enforcement to seize the firearms before any arraignment or hearing.
  18. And so it appears that NYC needs to be enjoined, rather than voluntarily seeing the writing on the wall like CA and NJ did. NYC has a carve-out in NY state law that allows it to issue its own carry licenses using its own process and qualifications. (BTW, Philadelphia has the same carve-out in PA law, but PA is a shall-issue state.) Second Amendment Foundation
  19. The order was granted, vacated, and remanded. The order list was worded sneakily.
  20. Another sneaky listing in the orders. It was actually granted, vacated, and remanded.
