Well, that didn't open up the floodgates for misuse and weaponization of Red Flag laws now, did it?

No it's not but some are thinking there's now a chance it will pass and the SC ruling may have given it a little nudge

Palmetto State Armory among others are being sue for a shotgun that it is claimed exploded as the shooter was chambering a round.
Apparently he and a lawyer group (Freedom) are going after not only the gun's manufacturer (Rock Island), but also the ammo manufacturer (Blackwater Worldwide), the online retailer of the ammo (Tactical *expletive deleted*it), and the seller of the shotgun (PSA)

It should be noted there was a recall of the ammo. Not clear if the recall occurred before or after the mentioned incident

Oh and the article then goes on to throw in PSA's supposed ties to republican politics and even manages to drag Trump into this. Yeah, they went there.

Post and Courier is owned and run by a bunch of Yankee carpetbagger *expletive deleted*s. They are part of the problem with this state.

That is some serious TDS on display there.

Know anything about that lawyer group? Google wasn't much help.

Starting 01JUL, all California gun purchases via credit card are being tracked, similar to that national scheme that seems to be mostly on hold now. Apparently Colorado and New York are already doing this as well. Cash is king!

This has been around for a while as there was a meme from a couple of years ago where "Bite-Me" was trying to emulate the ChiComs and the way they treat their "people" (NOT citizens !).

Report from Mrgunsngear on a credit union in Idaho who sent out a terms of service notice listing (among other things) guns and ammo as items customers were prohibited from buying with that credit union's credit card.

https://youtu.be/__oxIcqbI1E

What kind of a moron business would do that in a state like Idaho of all places? They have since changed their TOS to "illegal items". That's after a *expletive deleted*it ton of customers rushed to the bank after the story broke and canceled their accounts.

This seems especially stupid since, and I don't remember the exact language, but we recently passed a state law that expressly prohibited any financial institutions from tracking or otherwise interfering in legal activities, specifically because of that whole credit card industry "guns and ammo" purchasing tracking thing that seemed to have backfired on them as well.

I was wondering if the terms of service was something the leadership all read and agreed upon or they got what they thought was a generic "terms of service" from someone else and didn't read it properly.  Either way, the leadership looks like activists or they don't pay attention to the details.  Neither are people I want managing my money.

All it takes is one activist employee to slip something like that in that in the hope no one in the higher up management chain notices.
