There It Is...Ocasio-Cortez Pushes For A Gun Ban
The New Zealand shooting, which left 50 people dead, is already being weaponized by the Left to pursue yet another wave of anti-gun activism. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s government virtually banned semi-automatic rifles, so of course, Democrats over here were oozing with all the feelings over that. Sen. Bernie Sanders was all over it almost immediately after news of the ban was reported. There is no wiggle room in Kiwi land, folks. It’s a gun confiscation program. No grandfather clause, or anything, if you own a so-called “military-style” assault rifle (liberal speak for a scary gun), you need to turn them over. It’s trash, but it’s also a good reminder for why we have a Second Amendment to our constitution. There are some in the media who say that no one has called for a gun ban. That’s patently false. The newest to voice their gun grabbing feelings is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Judge rejects state’s motion to dismiss "high-capacity" magazine ban case
Judge Mary Miles Teachout says attorneys arguing for and against a high-capacity magazine ban in Vermont need to fight it out in court before she decides on the constitutionality of a law passed last year.
The state filed a motion to dismiss the case, arguing that the gun owners and sellers bringing the case did not have legal standing to challenge the constitutionality of the ban. Attorneys representing the gun owners were seeking a summary judgement, arguing that the facts of the case proved beyond debate that the ban is unconstitutional.
