Texas this week passed a bill that would allow state residents to carry firearms without first seeking a carry permit from the state government.

The legislation, House Bill 1927, would if passed by the state senate and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott make Texas one of nearly two dozen states that allow some form of what advocates call “constitutional carry.”

The National Rifle Association praised the bill’s passage in a press release, calling it “the first time a permitless carry bill has been debated by, and passed out of, one legislative chamber [of the Texas legislature].”

The group noted that the bill “would not prevent the enforcement of any laws broken by criminals who misuse firearms.”

Federal appeals court rules ban on handgun sales to those under 21 unconstitutional

Published

on

AU.S. Court of Appeals has ruled the federal law barring handgun purchases from adults under age 21 is unconstitutional and violates the Second Amendment. 

A divided three-judge panel made the ruling Tuesday in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in Richmond, Va. 

“Despite the weighty interest in reducing crime and violence, we refuse to relegate either the Second Amendment or 18-to-20-year-olds to a second-class status,” Judge Julius N. Richardson, a Trump appointee, wrote in the majority opinion. 

According to The Washington Post, age restrictions put in place in 1968 limited firearms dealers from selling handguns to anyone under 21, despite them being allowed to buy other guns. However, Tuesday’s decision is likely to be appealed to a full court.

“Looking through this historical lens to the text and structure of the Constitution reveals that 18- to 20-year-olds have Second Amendment rights,” Richardson wrote. “Virtually every other constitutional right applies whatever the age. And the Second Amendment is no different.”

Obama appointed Judge James A. Wynn Jr. wrote in a dissenting opinion that the panel granted the gun lobby “a victory in a fight it lost on Capitol Hill more than 50 years ago,” and said the ruling was not “consistent with the proper role of the federal judiciary in our democratic system.”

The majority opinion also added that “the rights of more than 99% of a group cannot be restricted because a fraction of 1% commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime.”

Missouri governor signs bill prohibiting state police officers from enforcing federal gun laws

Published

Missouri Governor Mike Parson, a Republicans has signed a bill that prohibits police officers within the state from enforcing federal gun laws.

“It is our time to protect the Second Amendment,” Parson declared. “This is exactly what this bill does, and it’s time to get this thing signed and get it into law.”

Mike Brown, co-founder of Frontier Justice shooting range said, where the legislation was signed said “While some people may not spend a lot of time thinking about the Second Amendment, it’s critical to the preservation of our republic.”

Meanwhile, Democrats in Missouri were not happy about the move.

MO House minority leader, Crystal Quade, a Democrat said “House Bill 85 is a radical, dangerous and obviously unconstitutional attempt to declare that Missouri will refuse to follow federal gun laws.”

“It quite literally defunds the police and gives that taxpayer money to convicted criminals. It is long past time for Republicans in Jefferson City to stop the political grandstanding, take their jobs as leaders seriously and pass real solutions to crime in our state,” she added in her statement.
