NRA sues New York over COVID-19 gun store closures

The NRA has filed a lawsuit against the state over Gov. Cuomo’s closure of “non-essential” businesses:

… “There isn’t a single person who has ever used a gun for self-defense who would consider it nonessential,” said Wayne LaPierre, NRA CEO & Executive Vice President. “This is clearly another assault by Gov. Cuomo on the NRA, on the rights of New Yorkers to defend themselves and their families, and on our Second Amendment freedoms. The NRA will continue to fight all such attacks until Gov. Cuomo recognizes that constitutional rights are for every New Yorker and every American – and not just for politicians and their privileged friends.” …

Attorney General Letitia James issued a response:

… “Everyone — including the NRA — must follow the law and all executive orders of New York. We will aggressively defend the state against yet another legal assault by the NRA.” …

Courts Reject Effort To Allow Release Of “Ghost Gun” Files

Following up to Sunday’s video on the courts blocking release of 3D-printed gun files are press statements from the New York and Washington State Attorney Generals touting their win.

Courts Reject Trump Administration’s Effort To Allow Release Of 3D-Printed “Ghost Gun” Files:

… “Ghost Guns threaten the safety of every man, woman, and child in America,” said Attorney General James. “We filed this lawsuit to stop the Trump Administration from making it easier for our schools, our offices, and our places of worship from turning into killing fields, and, thanks to the court, the president has been rebuffed in his attempt to cater to the one constituency he cares about: the gun lobby. We must finally put an end to the senseless cycle of gun deaths that we’ve seen in Parkland, Las Vegas, Charleston, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Aurora, El Paso, Virginia Beach, Newtown, and so many other devastated communities.” …

Judge blocks new Trump Administration effort to allow release of 3D-printed ghost guns in AG Ferguson lawsuit:

“A federal judge has granted Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s request to block the Trump Administration’s latest effort to allow 3D-printed gun files to be released on the internet. These files would allow plug-and-play access to 3D-print unregistered, untraceable firearms that can also be very difficult to detect, even with a metal detector. Untraceable firearms are sometimes called “ghost guns.” … “These downloadable guns are unregistered and very difficult to detect, even with metal detectors,” Ferguson said. “If the Trump Administration has its way, these ghost guns will be available to anyone regardless of age, mental health or criminal history. For the second time, we have blocked that effort in court. We will keep fighting back against this unlawful, dangerous policy as many times as it takes.” …”

GOA wants to ‘red flag’ Schumer

Senator Schumer made threatening comments to two sitting SCOTUS Justices so Gun Owners of America wants him to be investigated under the state’s “Red Flag” law:

GOA Letter to NY Gov and AG… by AmmoLand Shooting Sports News on Scribd

While amusing, even if Cuomo went through with this it would have no effect as Schumer doesn’t own any guns.
