Original ATF AR-15 Classification Refutes Claim that Rifle ‘Not Meant’ for Civilians

So much for the argument that this rifle was never intended for the civilian market. Now a FOIA production of the original classification letter proves even ATF agreed at the time. (“A 1963 Colt AR-15 Advertisement”/Soldier Systems.) U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- “This responds to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request … concerning the following: 1. All classification letters (or if classification letters were named in some other way, those records) regarding Model R6000 Colt AR-15 SP1 Sporter Rifle, Serial No. GX4968 which was approved in approximately 1963; and 2. All classification letters … for AR-15 platform rifles predating the submission to the ATF for the Colt AR15 SP1 Sporter Rifle,” Adam C. Siple, Chief Information and Privacy Governance Division, notified attorney Stephen Stamboulieh in a Nov. 22 response (see below). “In response to your request, we have processed a total of 2 pages of responsive material.” That referenced FOIA request was […]

9th Circuit Gives SCOTUS and the 2nd Amendment the Middle Finger in Duncan v. Bonta Decision

Court Rules Standard Capacity Magazine Ban Only a “Minimal Burden” The declaration yesterday by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (to , click here) that California’s “high” (standard) capacity magazine ban is constitutional is a clear indication that the heavy hand of politics is pressing the scales of justice firmly to the left. And, even though GOC fully expected the previous ruling of the ban’s “unconstitutionality” to be shot down, it was still a middle finger to the 2nd Amendment community and to the Supreme Court as well. The 9th fully discounted both the Heller and McDonald decisions, both of which affirmed the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right as opposed to a collective right and, that right could not be infringed by federal, state or local governments. Justice Susan Graber, writing for the majority opinion in overturning the previous 3-judge panel, said that “The ban […]

Ninth Circuit En Banc Panel: CA can Ban Magazines over 10 Rounds

Ninth Circuit En Banc Panel: CA can Ban Magazines over 10 Rounds U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed the three-judge panel decision in Duncan v. Becerra, the ban on magazines that hold over 10 rounds. The opinion was released on November 30, 2021. At the end of March, in 2019, Judge Roger T. Benitez wrote a well-reasoned opinion that found the California ban on magazines of over 10 rounds to be an unconstitutional infringement on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The case was appealed to a three-judge panel. The panel, in a split decision, upheld Judge Benitez’s opinion, on August 14, 2020. As has become common in cases involving the Second Amendment in the Ninth Circuit, the case was then asked to be heard by an en bank panel of the Ninth Circuit. The en banc panel issued its opinion on November […]

Are We’re Losing the Revolution, YES, But Only If You Let Them ~ VIDEO

Opinion Are We’re Losing the Revolution, YES, But Only If You Let Them IMG iStock Tombstone, Arizona -(AmmoLand.com)- Kyle Rittenhouse, the young man who was attacked by rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and fought back, has been found Not Guilty on 5 counts of Murder and Attempted Murder. That’s the good news. The bad news is that he was charged at all, and, most importantly, that so few people understand the significance of the case. Most don’t understand why virtually all of the corporate media and all of the Twitter “blue check-mark” people continue to lie about the case and push a narrative that has aly been proven to be patently false. Many, including Kyle himself, have said that it wasn’t just Kyle Rittenhouse that was on trial, but the whole concept of self-defense. While that might be right to a degree, it falls far short of explaining why so […]

Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui (D-Las Vegas) sponsored AB286 which passed on straight-party line votes in both the Nevada Assembly and Senate. Gov.

Florida Lawsuit Could Be A Template For Dismantling Preemption Laws In Other States

Democrat Nikki Fried Official Photo Florida -(AmmoLand.com)- If the gun-banners get their way, they’ll be importing more from Florida than just citrus. A lawsuit now before the Florida Supreme Court seeks to dismantle the state’s powerful preemption statute, which safeguards all pro-gun laws in the Gunshine State, including the Castle Doctrine, the “Stand Your Ground” statute, and shall-issue concealed carry. Florida’s preemption statute prohibits anyone other than the state legislature from regulating firearms and ammunition. If a local government such as a city council, county commission or school board tries to create their own gun regulations, the preemption statute allows for their members to be removed from office and fined up to $5,000, which the statute requires them to pay personally, rather than with taxpayer dollars. In addition, the local government can be liable for damages of up to $100,000 plus uncapped attorney’s fees. The law was passed in […]

Giving a Firearm as a Gift? Some Reminders From NSSF ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- With the gift-buying season upon us, it’s natural for gun owners who enjoy target shooting, hunting, collecting or just plain plinking to want to share their enjoyment of firearms with others. What better way to do that than to gift a firearm to a family member, close friend or relative? The first thing to remember if you’re thinking about giving someone a gun is that ownership of a firearm brings with it some serious responsibilities and legal obligations that other consumer products don’t. So, let’s look at some questions you may have about giving a firearm as a gift. Consider a Gift Card The Bureau of Alcohol. Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) recommends that if you want to give someone a new firearm, rather than going to a gun store, buying it on your own and giving it to, say, your father, consider instead purchasing a gift certificate […]

FPC Responds to 9th Circuit Court Upholding CA Magazine Ban

Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) has issued the following statement in response to today’s misguided Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Duncan v. Bonta. IMG Jim Grant U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) has issued the following statement in response to today’s misguided Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Duncan v. Bonta, which held that California’s law banning so-called “large-capacity magazines” (those that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition) is permissible under the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment, Takings Clause, and Due Process Clause: Today’s misguided decision makes it crystal clear that the Ninth Circuit will not respect the Constitution until the Supreme Court requires it to. Rather than following the binding Supreme Court’s D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago opinions, the Court of Appeals again used legal gamesmanship to avoid the constitutionally required result just as it has for over a decade. The Supreme Court must make clear in its upcog Second Amendment opinion […]

Leak Shows ATF Likely Prepping for Crack Down On Solvent Traps, aka Metal Tubes

Solvent Traps 80% Silencer Parts MARTINSBURG, WV -(Ammoland.com)- Over the past year, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) has been cracking down on solvent traps, and now a new leak provided to AmmoLand News by Gun Owners of America (GOA) shows that the ATF might be preparing more crackdowns on the popular items. A solvent trap is designed to catch solvent from a firearm when the gun is being cleaned. The solvent trap attaches to the front of the gun by using a thed barrel. The solvent collects at the bottom of the tube of the trap. Solvent traps have been popular amongst firearms enthusiasts that with possession of proper Licenses can convert the traps into fully functioning suppressors by drilling out internal plugs and the closed tubing end. Owning a solvent trap is currently legal. Converting a solvent trap to a suppressor is also permitted if […]

Senate GOP Candidate Oz No Wizard When It Comes to Guns

Update: Since publishing this article, Dr. Mehmet Oz has announced he is running for the US Senate in Pennsylvania as a Republican. His close friendship and professional relationship with major March for Our Lives donor Oprah Winfrey, along with his personal advocacy for citizen disarmament laws, should be enough for Pennsylvania gun owners to tell GOP political strategists that, his fame and fortune notwithstanding, Dr. Oz is a non-starter with them as a Senate candidate. (Dr. Mehmet Oz/Facebook) U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- “Celebrity surgeon Mehmet Oz is poised to shake up the Pennsylvania Senate race, bolstered by a vast personal fortune to invest in a 2022 campaign and enviable poll numbers that suggest the Republican would be an immediate front-runner,” the Washington Exaer reported Wednesday. “Oz, 61, has not decided whether to pull the trigger on a bid for the seat being relinquished by retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey. But if the television […]

Campus Bigotry 101: Left-tilt Student Groups at ASU Want Rittenhouse Barred

Kyle Rittenhouse survived a court trial, but will he escape attacks by left-leaning students at Arizona State University? (Screen snip, YouTube,NBC Chicago) U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Kyle Rittenhouse, the 18-year-old exonerated by a Kenosha, Wisconsin jury of murder who claimed on the witness stand he wants to study nursing at Arizona State University may get a course he hadn’t planned on, about social bigotry, and his critics are planning a Wednesday rally at the ASU campus to press their demands. The event will be held this Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. The New York Post is reporting how “leftist” student groups at ASU “are campaigning to get Kyle Rittenhouse kicked out of his studies — calling him a racist, “blood-thirsty murderer” even though the teen was acquitted of all charges.” The Guardian describes this bunch as “a small but vocal alliance of left-leaning students.” Their report notes Rittenhouse has been taking a “virtual class” […]

It Is Way Past Time To Vet Candidates For 2022

Take Action Time to Act United States -(AmmoLand.com)- Before you know it, 2022 will be here. But there is a lot of work to be done before the November elections. In fact, how successful Second Amendment supporters are in 2022 could depend on what happens now. Why is that? Because many candidates are going to run in primaries. These elections are a chance for Second Amendment supporters to have an outsized impact on the November 2022 elections. This is because primary turnout is much lower than that in a general election, and therefore it is a way to shape the landscape favorably. But before the primary elections, Second Amendment supporters need to vet the candidates who are running so that the best candidate is running in the general election next November. This matters a lot, because there have been past disappointments like Larry Hogan and Adam Kinzinger. The task of […]
