  3. In the renewal, try changing her name and adding her previous name to the " formerly known as" list
  4. However, unlike handguns, short-barreled firearms are not “an entire class of ‘arms’ *** chosen by American society for [the] lawful purpose” of self-defense. See Heller 554 U.S. at 625, 628. Short-barreled firearms are regulated precisely because they are “concealable weapon *** likely to be used for criminal purposes.” See United States v. Thompson/Center Arms Co., 504 U.S. 505, 517 (1992) (explaining that short-barreled rifles are regulated under the National Firearms Act (26 U.S.C. §§ 5841, 5845 (2018)) for this very reason). The sheer number of registered short-barreled firearms does not undercut their dangerousness or the fact that they are “not typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes.”4 See Heller, 554 U.S. at 625, 628; see also People v. Dean, 207 Ill. App. 3d 640, 642 (1990) (noting that the UUW statute “provides that a person in possession of a sawed-off shotgun *** has committed a crime. No exceptions are allowed under this section because such weapons are considered to be inherently dangerous to human life”). People v. Smith, sawed off shotguns.pdf
  5. Bost joined Adam Kinzinger in urging the ATF to ban a firearm accessory by rule rather than by law - listen closely, he urged a government agency to infringe on the Second Amendment because the House did not have the votes to do it. He supports universal background checks. Those are my issues.
  6. Nice to see another judge follow the u.s. Supreme Court directives in Heller and NYSRPA.
  7. Another article on this: https://justthenews.com/government/white-house/atf-preparing-regulate-private-gun-sales-background-check-whistleblower
  8. "However, the Republican JCAR members were successful in filing a motion to object to the rules on the same grounds. ISP must respond in writing to the Committee’s objection before it can file the regulations with the Secretary of State’s Office to be adopted." Senator Dale Fowler
