CCRKBA: ‘Easier to Get a Gun Than a Burger? Your Fries Aren’t Cooked’

Anti-gunners allege guns are easier to buy than fast food.
U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun prohibitionists complaining about so-called “drive-through” gun sales under a new ATF Guidance issued recently to address problems related to the COVID-19 crisis are misrepresenting the facts, making it appear that it is easier to buy a firearm than fast food, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
“I’d tell anybody who really believes it’s easier to buy a cheeseburger than a gun that his ‘fries aren’t cooked,’ and I’m not talking about food,” quipped CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “This is the kind of nonsense gun owners have been putting up with for years.”
ATF guidance issued April 10 allows federally-licensed dealers to conduct business “activities on any part of the business premises, including the exterior of the brick-and-mortar structure, provided, the activity otherwise complies with all applicable federal laws and regulations, and any sale, delivery, or disposition would not violate any State law or published ordinance applicable at the place of sale, delivery, or other disposition.”
“What that means is no firearms can be sold without full compliance with federal and state laws,” Gottlieb noted. “Suggesting that a transaction conducted outside of a business is any different or easier than one conducted inside the door is deliberately misleading. Anybody who believes such nonsense probably thinks a chili-dog and chocolate shake is health food.”
The gun prohibition lobby has portrayed these new guidelines as “drive-through gun sales.” Gottlieb said this is a false characterization, “and they know it.” “For years,” he observed, “anti-gunners have perpetuated a myth about ‘easy access to guns,’ but lately, as many first-time gun buyers have learned, it’s not at all easy to buy a firearm, especially a handgun or semi-auto rifle. There is paperwork, a background check and a waiting period in most jurisdictions. You simply cannot walk into a gun store, give a clerk some money and walk out with a firearm. Thanks to the coronavirus scare, a lot of people have learned they’ve been lied to. It’s like being promised a three-course dinner and getting a box lunch and a soda.”

CCRKBA: Lawmaker more Interested in Gun Control Than Virus Control

Recent correspondence from Gov. Newsom of CA shows he is more concerned with gun control than saving lives. Photo: Jeremy Tremp Source: NRA-ILA
Bellevue, WA -(AmmoLand.com)- A letter from California Assemblyman Miguel Santiago to Gov. Gavin Newsom shows the 53rd District legislator is more interested in gun control than he is about controlling the deadly coronavirus, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
In his April 13 letter, Santiago declared,
“Firearm and ammunition sales have surged exponentially in the last 30 days with some retailers claiming an increase of 70 percent in the 11 days following Italy’s reported outbreak of COVID-19 cases. While personal safety is extremely important during these challenging times, so is public safety… Adding more firearms to our current state of affairs perpetuates the cycle of public panic and impulsive action. An increased population of firearms in our state not only poses a greater risk to children and families who are largely confined to their homes, but also to our communities facing racially motivated or otherwise targeted hate…By suspending firearm and ammunition sales and arming Californians with strong safeguards on public health and safety reinforced by state peace officers, we can mitigate undue risks to our public.”
“At a time when so many are fighting this virus and so many more have lost their jobs due to the governor’s ‘stay home’ order, and the state’s economy is hurting,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “Santiago’s
preoccupation with restricting the rights of gun owners seems, at the very least, to be completely out of place.
“His letter to the governor has nothing to do with containing the spread of the virus and everything to do with preventing people from buying guns and ammunition,” Gottlieb continued. “Santiago obviously cares more about his gun prohibition agenda than saving lives from the coronavirus or from criminals preying on unarmed victims.” California has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, and Newsom’s effort to keep gun stores closed, using the COVID-19 crisis as a convenient excuse, is rapidly losing credibility.
“Since Santiago is so interested in gun control,” Gottlieb stated, “he should know that restricting the rights of law-abiding firearms owners, and those who want to buy their first firearm, is not the panacea to the pandemic. At a time when jail inmates are being released to protect them from infection, Santiago wants to prevent honest citizens from protecting themselves from criminals. He’s neither interested in public health or public safety. He’s just interested in public disarmament.”

Gun Rights Groups Sue New Mexico Gov., Challenging Emergency Order

Gun Rights Groups Sue New Mexico Gov., Challenging Emergency Order
BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Second Amendment Foundation, National Rifle Association and Firearms Policy Coalition today filed a federal lawsuit against New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, challenging her order mandating the closure of lawful retail firearms businesses during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Joining SAF, NRA and FPC are the New Mexico Shooting Sports Association, two businesses, and three private citizens. They are represented by attorneys Patrick J. Rogers, Albuquerque; Cody J. Wisniewski, Lakewood, Colo.; Adam Kraut, Sacramento, Calif., and Michael T. Jean, Fairfax, Va. The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico and is known as Aragon v. Grisham.
In addition to Gov. Grisham, also named as a defendant is Kathyleen Kunkel, secretary for the New Mexico Department of Health, both in their official capacities. The Department of Health is also a defendant.
The lawsuit “challenges Defendants’ mandatory shuttering of lawful retail firearms businesses.”
“By arbitrarily, capriciously—and unconstitutionally—targeting those who lawfully sell firearms and ammunition, New Mexico is depriving citizens of their natural and fundamental right to keep and bear arms,” the complaint alleges.
“Gov. Grisham simply can’t suspend the Second Amendment,” stated SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Of course there is an emergency, but such emergencies do not nullify the Constitution, even temporarily. We cannot allow public officials to put their personal agendas above the rights protected by the Constitution, and that includes the right of the people to keep and bear arms.”
“The government has no duty to protect you and coronavirus-related impacts to law enforcement could be significant,” added FPC President Brandon Combs, “so times like now are precisely when people must be able to acquire self-defense tools to defend their lives and homes. We are proud to participate in this important case to defend the People’s right to keep and bear arms against government abuses in New Mexico.”
“Unfortunately,” Adam Kraut, FPC Director of Legal Strategy observed, “we find ourselves having to litigate yet another case where government officials believe that a crisis creates an exception to an enumerated constitutional right. We are happy to join with our friends from various organizations to defend the People of New Mexico’s right to keep and bear arms.”

N.J. Gov. Murphy Hit with Federal Lawsuit by Second Amendment Foundation

The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a federal lawsuit against New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy over an executive order that has shut down gun sales in the state.
U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Several days after the Second Amendment Foundation warned the Mayor of New Orleans against suspending firearms sales in reaction to the COVID-19 outbreak, that organization has hit the New Jersey governor with a federal lawsuit alleging depravation of rights for “shutting down firearms dealerships in the Garden State, thus preventing citizens from exercising their rights under the Second and Fourteenth amendments.”
It may be the first time in history for such a legal action, as panic over the Coronavirus continues.
SAF is joined by the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, on behalf of Robert Kashinsky and Legend Firearms, a gun shop in the state. They are represented by noted civil rights attorney David Jensen at Jensen & Associates in Beacon, N.Y. He is also representing SAF and the Connecticut Citizens Defense League in a federal lawsuit against the state of Connecticut’s prohibition on so-called “high capacity magazines.”
Attorney David Jensen
In the New Jersey case, Gov. Phil Murphy and State Police Supt. Patrick J. Callahan are defendants in their official capacities. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, alleges depravation of rights under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The case is known as Kashinsky v. Murphy. The complaint may be read here.
The lawsuit contends that Murphy, by issuing Executive Order 107 on March 21, mandated “the closure of all retail businesses that sell firearms or ammunition and of making the portal for firearms background checks unavailable on the website of the New Jersey State Police…amount to a ban on obtaining firearms or ammunition in the State of New Jersey.”
Kashinsky, according to the federal complaint, does not own a firearm, but he recently obtained a Firearms Purchaser Identification card for the purpose of buying a gun out of concern for his ability to protect himself and his wife in the event of an emergency. However, Murphy’s executive order was quickly followed by a notice posted on the State Police background check portal of its website “indicating that the State Police would no longer conduct background checks,” the lawsuit says.
“Gov. Murphy cannot simply suspend the Second Amendment, and neither can Supt. Callahan,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Yet, under this emergency order, that’s exactly what they’re doing. The Constitution, and federal law, don’t allow that.
“New Jersey may have been the first state to ratify the Bill of Rights,” Gottlieb observed. “but they’re the last state to recognize it.”
In 2005 following Hurricane Katrina, SAF and the National Rifle Association took the City of New Orleans to federal court over firearm seizures conducted by the administration of former Mayor Ray Nagin. The court found those gun confiscations—some of which were done at gunpoint—to be unconstitutional.
Recently, when North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper declared a statewide emergency due to the Coronavirus, SAF reminded officials about the case of Bateman v. Purdue, that prevents suspension of Second Amendment rights during an emergency in that state. The intent was to allow people to venture outside their homes with firearms in the event of a disaster, such as a hurricane.
“We could not have foreseen that our case against North Carolina would ever keep citizens safe in this kind of emergency,” Gottlieb said, “but we are delighted that no public official can arbitrarily render the state’s residents unable to defend themselves on the grounds of a declared emergency. That’s the time when honest citizens might need their firearms the most while away from home.”
Just days ago, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed an emergency order that actually exempts firearm and ammunition distributors and retailers from any shutdown, recognizing them instead as “essential businesses…for the purposes of safety and security.” SAF applauded the governor.
The New Jersey lawsuit could put other states on notice about trying to shut down the exercise of Second Amendment rights. Most state constitutions also have right-to-bear-arms provisions, and they are often more protective than the Second Amendment.

Illinois Gov. Sets Example For Others On Gun, Ammunition Stores

Opinion
Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, When an anti-gun Democrat governor declares that essential businesses include firearm and ammunition suppliers and retailers for the purposes of safety and security, that is a really big deal.
BELLEVUE, WA — -(AmmoLand.com)- The Second Amendment Foundation today applauded Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker for including firearm and ammunition suppliers on the list of “essential businesses and operations” that will remain open during the Prairie State’s “Shelter-In-Place” emergency due to the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus emergency.
“When an anti-gun Democrat governor declares that essential businesses include firearm and ammunition suppliers and retailers for the purposes of safety and security, that is a really big deal,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Every governor should copy the Illinois example when issuing ‘shelter-in-place’ and business closure orders in the face of the Coronavirus.”
Three other states are already under sweeping emergency orders as the nation copes with the Coronavirus pandemic. They are New York, Pennsylvania, and California.
“Depending upon how long this emergency continues,” Gottlieb observed, “many Americans may find themselves facing situations where they will need to be their own first responders. Gov. Pritzker obviously understands this, and we encourage the governors of all other states to recognize this isn’t an issue of party politics but of personal and community safety.”
Executive Order 2020-10 directs all individuals living within the state of Illinois to stay at home, except for “Essential Activities, Essential Government Functions, or to operate Essential Businesses and Operations.”
These include information technology equipment manufacturers and suppliers, hardware, food, cleaning supplies, and “firearm and ammunition suppliers and retailers for purposes of safety and security,” the order says.
“We are all in this together,” Gottlieb stated, “and we will make it through, together, as well. Stay safe, stay well and stay ready.”
