A 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals panel decided 2-1 this week that the Second Amendment extends beyond the home, ruling that the State of Hawaii infringed on the rights of a plaintiff when it twice denied him a permit to carry a gun outside. The case is in Young v. State of Hawaii. Look for an en banc reversal by the full 9th Circuit, the most liberal and in the nation. If the case isn’t reheard en banc, or the panel decision is affirmed on en banc rehearing, then the case may well go up to the Supreme Court, since this decision reinforces a split among the circuits on the subject. This is why we need Judge Kavanaugh seated on the SCOTUS. Note that the big three networks ignored this news.
A Ninth Circuit panel also backed a lower court’s decision to suspend California’s ban on the possession of large magazines.

Poll says there are 14 million NRA members
In June of 2017 Pew Research published a poll that showed over fourteen million adults in the US self identified as National Rifle Association members. The trouble is, only five million or so are actual signed-up, dues-paying members.
Guns in Schools
Around 15 people were shot, 2 fatally, in a Toronto neighborhood this week, resulting in immediate calls for more gun control and total gun bans. But it was already a defacto gun free zone and the gun used was an “illegal” semiauto pistol. FYI, almost every gun control proposal being talked about here in the USA is already law in Canada.

Mississippi’s First Lady Deborah Bryant knocks it out of the park. Reckon how many First Ladies have their own AR?
Had a burglary at our little farm in Copiah County. Asked the First Lady not to go down until we find the perpetrators. Her response: I’m taking my AR down and waiting on their a~~~s!!!!

Fudd report. I have only one response: The Second Amendment ain’t about duck hunting.
So-called country-pop music “star” and pothead Eric Church, a marketing major whose professional career start in Nashville was funded by his father, is blaming the NRA (you and me) and the non-existent “gun show loophole” for the Las Vegas massacre. Oh, and he still claims to be a “Second Amendment guy.” Apparently Mr. Church is the only person who thinks Eric Church is cool. The interview was in the virulently anti-gun Rolling Stone magazine.
The Only Ones
Obama era case of FBI lying and cover-up is finally going to trial in Oregon.
Russians are now allowed (sort of) to reload rifle ammunition.

“During the thirty-eight-hour battle and forty-eight hours of escape and evasion, fighting with mortars, machine guns, recoilless rifles, small arms, and hand grenades, it was estimated that Sergeant First Class Adkins killed between 135 and 175 of the enemy while sustaining eighteen different wounds to his body.”
Popular MS gun trainer, competitor and list member Cliff Cargill, 50, passed away while at a gun training class in Wisconsin last week. RIP Cliff.

RWS now offers what they call .308 Win. “Short Rifle” cartridges designed for rifles with 16-22″ barrels.
And did you know that RWS also has “Test Packs” of rifle ammo in some calibers, consisting of a 20-round box of ammo in a particular cartridge, which is made up of 4 different 5-round loads of ammo.
