    As the COVID-19 pandemic makes its way across the country, Americans are getting an important lesson in the dangers of a placing a prior restraint on the exercise of a constitutional right. The vast increase in those seeking protection in the Second Amendment during this period of uncertainty has caused the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and Point of Contact State background check systems to buckle. Worse, some jurisdictions that have criminalized the private transfer of firearms have also shut down access to guns stores or their state criminal background check system. This lethal combination of misguided policies has made it impossible for millions of Americans to acquire, or even borrow or lend, firearms during this moment of crisis.

In 2018, Governor Charlie Baker (R) undermined the government's system of checks and balances to attack gun owners when he refused to reinstate some Massachusetts residents' Firearm Owner Identification (FID) Cards after the Firearm Licensing Review Board had restored their gun rights and a judge had issued a lawful court order directing the state to grant the FID card. Baker finally backed off this position in early 2019, but only for those who obtained a court order directing the state to issue them an FID card.

    U.S. Senators Use COVID-19 to Push Longtime Gun Control Agenda
    The COVID-19 panic has been used by would-be state and local authoritarians as an excuse to keep Americans from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. Thankfully, American gun owners have a friend in the White House that has worked to protect their rights on the federal level by declaring the firearms industry to be critical infrastructure. However, this respect for the Second Amendment isn't uniform in the federal government. There are some federal lawmakers seeking to exploit COVID-19 to pursue their pre-existing gun control agenda.

    Citing COVID-19, California Extends Ex Parte "Red Flag" Gun Confiscation Orders to 110 Days!
    A state with one of the worst "Red Flag" gun confiscation laws on the books just got worse. On April 13, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued a guidance document on the procedures concerning certain types of restraining orders. Citing the ongoing COVID-19 panic, Becerra noted that all ex parte Gun Violence Restraining Orders (EGVROs) are to be extended 90 days past the statutory expiration date. Under state law, such orders expire after 21 days - meaning that an ex parte GVRO may now last up to 110 days. California's latest attack on gun rights and due process should serve as a warning to gun owners across the country about the dangers inherent to "Red Flag" gun confiscation laws.

    Virginia Anti-gun Activist Unveils 2021 Gun Control Agenda
    On April 10, disgraced Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed five pieces of anti-gun legislation into law. Those measures criminalize the private sale of firearms, ration handgun sales to one a month, create a "red flag" gun confiscation scheme, punish property crime victims who fail to hastily report a firearm as stolen, and restrict how Virginia parents may store and introduce their children to firearms. Northam sent two pieces of anti-gun legislation back, including legislation that erodes the Right-to-Carry and the state firearms preemption statute, to the general assembly with governor's amendments. The General Assembly enacted both items of legislation on April 22.

For one family in Pennsylvania, the “discomfort” a schoolmate’s parent felt about seeing a toy gun in a Zoom call even resulted in police showing up at their home.

    Not Funny: Firearm Prohibitionists Finally Target Elmer Fudd’s Gun
    For some in the pro-gun community, the term “Fudd” denotes a person who owns guns, typically not for self-defense, but considers themselves above the fray of Second Amendment politics. But it is not owning this or that type of gun that makes a person a Fudd. Rather, it’s an attitude of indifference to the besieged plight of gun owners generally. The name derives from Elmer Fudd, the classic Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoon character who single-mindedly pursued ducks and rabbits (Daffy and Bugs in particular) with his trusty assortment of long arms, usually to his own detriment.

To open a circa 1970 edition of ATF's State Laws and Published Ordinances is to encounter an incomprehensible patchwork of county and city regulations that made it impossible for otherwise law-abiding gun owners to confidently exercise their right to keep and bear arms.

    An appellate court in Florida recently decided that a police officer who sees a firearm when approaching a citizen is not permitted to rely exclusively on the possession of the firearm as the justification for an investigatory stop and search. Bearing arms is not only a lawful activity, it is “a specifically enumerated right” protected under both the state and federal constitutions. Taking into consideration the sheer number of persons in the state who are permitted to carry concealed weapons, this “potentially lawful activity cannot be the sole basis for a detention. If this were allowed, the Fourth Amendment would be eviscerated.”

    Trump Hits Judicial Milestone
    This week, President Donald Trump’s 200th judicial nominee was confirmed; Judge Cory Wilson of Mississippi. Wilson will join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Trump has now filled all federal circuit court vacancies, and appointed more appellate judges than any other president at this point in his presidency. He is closing in on making as many circuit court appointments as President Obama made throughout his two terms in the White House.

    Maryland Illustrates Problem with Requiring Permission to Exercise Constitutional Rights
    2020 continues to serve up examples of why Americans should not tolerate gun control schemes that require citizens to obtain government permission before exercising their Second Amendment rights. This week, the Maryland State Police experienced what they termed a “catastrophic hardware failure” that interrupted that state’s ability to process regulated firearm purchase applications. The failure complicated Marylanders’ ability to access handguns at a time when many residents are seeking to protect themselves.

    New Gun Owners Could Sway Future Elections icon-external-link.png

    The record-breaking gun sales during the coronavirus pandemic could bolster candidates that support the Second Amendment in 2020 and alter the course of American gun politics for the foreseeable future. Several of the country's leading gun-rights groups are working to convert many more first-time owners into new gun-rights voters in the run-up to the 2020 election.

    North Carolina: Second Amendment Preservation Act Up for Veto Override Tomorrow

    Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will consider overriding Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the Second Amendment Preservation Act. Gov. Cooper erroneously claimed that the bill will allow guns in schools and threatens the safety of students and teachers. Instead, it only applies to churches that operate schools and simply allows parishioners to carry when the schools are not in session, if the church wishes to opt-in.

    North Carolina: Gov. Cooper Vetoes Bipartisan Second Amendment Preservation Act

    On July 2nd, Governor Roy Cooper vetoed House Bill 652, the Second Amendment Preservation Act, despite it passing the General Assembly with bipartisan supermajorities. He erroneously claimed that the bill will allow guns in schools and threatens the safety of students and teachers. Instead, it only applies to churches that operate schools and simply allows parishioners to carry when the schools are not in session, if the church wishes to opt-in Gov. Cooper’s veto shows that he cares little about personal safety or private property rights. HB 652 will now go back to the General Assembly, where they may consider a veto override.

    Lori Lightfoot Either Doesn’t Understand Federal Law, or Hopes Nobody Else Does
    It has become commonly accepted among anti-gun extremists to ignore the mountains of evidence that exposes the abject failure of gun control to prevent violent criminals from acting like violent criminals. They reject the fact that criminals already violate myriad laws at the local, state, and federal level in furtherance of their illicit activities, and insist that the only way to prevent criminals from committing crimes with firearms is to add more laws.

    Trump Administration Fixes Suppressor Export Rule
    Effective immediately, the Department of State has rescinded its April 18, 2002, firearms sound suppressor policy. This policy provided for enhanced guidelines for the approval and issuance of export licenses for sound suppressors and restricted their export to only official end users such as government or military entities. Henceforth, DDTC will handle suppressor exports in a manner consistent with other USML-controlled technologies. This requires that applicants must identify a specific end user. Applications for the permanent export of hardware must include purchase documentation, a DSP-83 non-transfer and end use certificate (as suppressors are considered Significant Military Equipment under the USML), an end-user statement, and an import permit (if required by the destination country). Consistent with current licensing practices, all licenses will be reviewed and adjudicated on a case-by-case basis, and any pre-license checks or post shipment verifications will be conducted as deemed necessary and appropriate based on the totality of the circumstances of the transaction. Standard staffing protocols within the Department and interagency will be applied as required.
