Paywall for me. Exactly what is their data showing that the "mass shooters" purchased Lake City vs 50 other choices more likely available at an LGS or big box?

The NYT article?
When I originally post the the link to the NYT's article it wasn't hiding behind a paywall but now it is. Curious

Basically the NYT's article went on how LC ammo was found at some "mass" shootings and ranted that since it's military grade ammo it must be extra deadly and thus shouldn't be sold to us civs and said that since LC is a "tax payer funded"* ammo plant the govt is providing ammo to mass shooters.

*In quotes because they charge enough for it if my taxes already paid for it.

They should see what something like Hornaday TAP .223 or a decent 77gr HPBT does. Honestly M855 is one of the better rounds to get hit with in the caliber, if you gotta get shot.  (Plan A remains: Don't Get Shot)

By all means, cancel your cards and tell them why.  Just understand that most of those apply to the sales side of things, not the purchasing side.  That is to say, you can't use their service as a merchant to sell tobacco, prescription drugs, guns, knives, condoms, porn, etc., not that you can't use your card to purchase those items.

I canceled a Citigroup card with really good rewards because of a similar policy, but don't come across as an idiot when you're complaining.

They want to BAN SWORDS now.... Response to the Labour Party & Idris Elba
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B04JPPKzdAg

Scholagladiatoria doing a video about the Labor Party over there wanting to ban swords. 

I am pretty sure he leans at least a bit to the left.  All the arguments he is making are the same arguments here against gun control.  I am sure the leftist over there will ignore his logic/facts the same as they do here.

Gun owners in Maryland would be required to buy at least $300,000 in liability insurance or forfeit their ability to carry a firearm under a new bill.
The controversial legislation, introduced by Delegate Terri Hill, D-Howard County, would prohibit the "wear or carry" of a gun anywhere in the state unless the individual has obtained a liability insurance policy of at least $300,000.

What insurance company issues liability policies that cover a private citizen deliberately shooting someone else?  I'm guessing, none, so no Second Amendment for Maryland.

I don't see any news stories on this, so here is the video I came across.

https://youtu.be/ez81oCgHN1Q?si=cBwWc3rQQS9mJpI1

tl;dr version: judge rules against New York state's ban on handguns in public housing.


Does anyone know of a state law in the US that singles out, say, homes worth over $1 million for a gun ban? Or a law that says you can have a gun on public transportation, but not in a taxi or limo?

The Left only wants to oppress protect the less privileged with their gun control gun safety laws, I guess.

Edit: Sorry. Turns out it's federal law; not state, and it apparently covers more than just pistols.

News from Cali

Quote
U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez delivered another scathing rebuke to the state of California on Thursday, just weeks after declaring the state’s ban on “large capacity” magazines unconstitutional. This time around it was the state’s ban on “assault weapons” that was before the judge, in a case known as Miller v. Bonta. Benitez was unsparing in his criticism of the law, which he says bars ordinary Californians from possessing commonly-owned arms that are protected by the language of the Second Amendment.

Quote
Judge Benitez came down on the side of the Constitution and history.”

He did indeed. So what happens next? Benitez granted a 10-day stay on his permanent injunction, so if the past is any prologue California Attorney General Rob Bonta will appeal the decision to the Ninth Circuit and request a stay, the Ninth Circuit will grant the stay and allow the law to remain in place during the appeal, and then a majority of Ninth Circuit judges will start to play keep-away-from-the-Supreme-Court with the case.

Yep, here comes the usual appeals circus.

Same judge was not done

Quote
U.S. District Judge Roger T. Benitez has delivered another blow to California’s gun control regime, striking down the state statute that imposes background checks on every ammunition sale in the state while prohibiting California residents from bringing ammunition purchased elsewhere back home; declaring it to be a violation of both the Second Amendment and the Constitution’s dormant Commerce Clause.

I don't understand why they're trying to ban training and militias. I mean, who cares if the gun nuts get all trained and organized? Joe Biden will just strafe them with his F-15.

Well, Idris Elba just dropped several notches in my book. Not guns, but as an analog, knives:

https://youtu.be/xBIIpklNib8

While it's Great Britain, I think what scares me the most is that these people now live in a culture where they cannot fathom being able to buy a knife. When you think about it, that's a transition of at most a single generation. Relatively, that's pretty darn fast. But then I guess we have the same thing here with the trannies and suddenly there's a generation that can't fathom half the population not being gay or genderblenders.

Well, Idris Elba just dropped several notches in my book. Not guns, but as an analog, knives:

Oddly enough, anti-knife stupidity isn't new at all.  Reading about weapons control laws in the USA in the 1800's... most of them that I can recall were actually focused on banning carrying bowie knives.  Reading RKBA court cases from that era, the most common ruling from courts was the Second Amendment protected only military weapons (muskets, horse pistols, seige guns and so on) but not that dastardy, cowardly carriage of bowie knives, which no self-respecting soldier would use.
