NY court finds NYC pistol licensing fees are legal

NY court finds NYC pistol licensing fees are legal – An appeals court says it’s constitutional for New York City to charge a much higher application fee for a handgun permit than elsewhere in the state.  The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled on Tuesday.  It rejected a lawsuit brought by guns rights advocates including the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association and the Second Amendment... read more

The Real Reason One Side Seems Louder in the Debate About Gun Violence

The Real Reason One Side Seems Louder in the Debate About Gun Violence – The last time we engaged in a gun debate that was as loud and time-consuming as what erupted after Sandy Hook was when the assault-weapons ban was enacted in 1994. But there was no Internet in 1994 so it’s impossible to compare what happened then to what is going on now. The fact that a large number of “grassroots” gun control organizations have suddenly sprung into existence doesn’t necessarily mean that the country is more or less supportive of gun restrictions versus gun rights than it was twenty years ago. There’s simply no way to compare the noise levels from one communication environment to the... read more

Journal News at it Again: Newspaper FOILS New Gun Permit Data

Journal News at it Again: Newspaper FOILS New Gun Permit Data – The Rockland County Times has confirmed that the Journal News daily newspaper has requested from Putnam, Rockland and Westchester Counties a complete list of gun owners who did not file “opt out” papers exempting themselves from pistol permit public records. Rockland County Clerk Paul Piperato said he is currently going through some procedural steps before releasing the data. He noted that Westchester has likely already delivered the information to the Journal News and Putnam County will most likely resist giving the information, just as they had last time. Piperato said he expects Putnam to take the case to court and... read more

1 in 12 on Bloomberg’s gun victims list are crime suspects

1 in 12 on Bloomberg’s gun victims list are crime suspects – A preliminary analysis of the list of shooting “victims” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s group Mayors Against Illegal Guns is reading at rallies for new gun control laws finds that one in 12 are crime suspects killed by police or armed citizens acting in self-defense.  The review of 617 killings found that 50 were suspects in crimes ranging from assault to murder, not the type of violence Bloomberg’s group suggests in its “No More Names” campaign to draw attention to the estimated 6,000 gun death “tragedies” since the mid-December Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newton,... read more

Gun maker eyes HQ in Pike County

Gun maker eyes HQ in Pike County – A gun manufacturer is considering buying the entire 620-acre Pike County business park for $2 million to escape an unfriendly gun climate in New York.  Kahr Firearms Group would move its corporate headquarters from in Pearl River, N.Y., to Pike County, bringing a some 100 jobs, company spokesman Frank Harris said.  Some jobs will be temporary construction, others will be administrative and manufacturing.

Boston Bomber Memorialized as Gun Victim by Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Movement

Boston Bomber Memorialized as Gun Victim by Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Movement – An event held yesterday in Concord, New Hampshire by out-of-state supporters of Mike Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns movement turned ugly when a 2nd Amendment activist (who was protesting the event) was arrested. But buried in the Union Leader story was an arguably more interesting nugget.  During the rally, supporters of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns read the names of those “killed with guns” since the Dec. 14 Newtown shootings — and Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s name was memorialized among the names of the dead. (Tsarnaev, of course, was killed in a police... read more

White House devoted to sweeping gun control despite ‘progress’ on violence

White House devoted to sweeping gun control despite ‘progress’ on violence – The White House on Tuesday is touting a progress report on President Obama’s pledge to combat gun violence, in the wake of December’s school shooting, that says the administration has “completed or made significant progress” on 21 of 23 executive actions Mr. Obama laid out in January.  But the report also urges Congress to act after legislation to expand gun-purchase background checks failed in the Senate in April, saying that “[p]assing common-sense gun safety legislation, including expanding background checks and making gun trafficking a federal crime, remains the single most important step we could take to reduce gun... read more
