  •  Firearms Law and Policy - our first diary (12+ / 0-)

    We published our first diary yesterday, including a note from your founders and a glossary of resources.

    Introducing a new Group: Firearms Law and Policy - Glossary of Resources

    Please drop by and say hello.

    To advocate effectively for repeal or passage of firearms legislation we must first know and understand current law and policy, and how both are implemented, where we live. There is enormous variability across the country; the relative utility/relative risk of firearms is different on a 500 acre ranch in Montana than for a 1000 square foot apartment in New York. State and local laws reflect that diversity. We will discuss firearms law and policy with an emphasis on the many historical ethics and ideals of Western Civilization, as opposed to what are currently known as "Libertarian" ideals.

    This group is also a study group; a place to learn and discuss which gun regulations are constitutional restrictions in this post-Heller environment. (A law degree is not required). With Congressional gridlock likely to impede any useful national legislation, progress will have to be made at the state and local level.
    Please note: We are not a subgroup of the Daily Kos RKBA group and do not agree with their foundation premise, but hope they will share their insights into state and local laws that work.

    To join us send a message to the Firearms Law and Policy Group.
