Well, by this time tomorrow, I'll be a Felon x8, just based on AR Pistols that have braces.  I'm eager to see how this works out as well.  Bring it, JoeBama, and let's see what your solution is for instantly making "Felons out of Law Abiding Citizens..."     :popcorn:

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signs bill to defy any new federal gun control laws

April 7, 2021

Republican Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona signed a bill on Tuesday that would ban local governments and employees from enforcing or aiding any infringement on gun rights imposed by the federal government.

House Bill 2111 was passed by the Arizona House and Senate in an attempt to preempt any new regulation of guns by the Biden administration.

“The state of Arizona and its political subdivisions are prohibited from utilizing any financial resources or state personnel to administer, cooperate with or enforce any law, act, order, rule, treaty or regulation of the federal government that is inconsistent with any law of this state regarding the regulation of firearms,” read the text of the legislation.

Biden has promised to seek a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines in the wake of several mass killings after he assumed office.

Critics of the bill included Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone who said there was a “political motivation” behind it.

“It’s one of those emotional issues but as far as the impact on law enforcement, it will create confusion or challenges more than benefits or protecting the Second Amendment,” Penzone said to KTAR radio on Thursday.

Others say that the law will lead to litigation that will have to be paid with taxpayer money. Moms Demand Action, a gun control advocacy group, gathered over 2,400 signatures opposing the bill and presented them to Ducey’s office hours before he signed it into law.

Democratic Arizona state Sen. Lisa Otondo assured gun owners that their rights were safe.

“Nobody is trying to take away your guns, not for the protection of your family, your property, nor your Second Amendment right to own them,” Otondo said.

Despite those assurances, gun sales have skyrocketed first over fears of instability from the pandemic lockdowns and later when President Joe Biden was elected.

My notes on that above ^^^.  Paul Penzone is a POS DEM Maricopa County Sherriff, that beat out Sheriff Joe - and Sheriff Joe NEVER took any shiit from the Fed Gov, EVER. Penzone is a fucking politician.  Not a County Sheriff.   All the other shiit-talkers about Lord Ducey's decision today...  are all DEMS?!...   weird, huh...   :popcorn:

A judge in California who just found CA’s assault weapon ban unconstitutional said in his statement the an the term assault weapon is a misnomer. They could just as easily be called home defense rifles, or anti crime rifles.

White House to withdraw controversial ATF nominee David Chipman

Chipman is second major nominee withdrawn by Biden, after former OMB pick Neera Tanden stalled


The White House is withdrawing the nomination of David Chipman to run the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco (ATF) and Firearms, Fox News has confirmed.

Chipman, who had a history of caustic comments about gun owners and worked for gun control groups for years after his career as an ATF agent, was staunchly opposed by Republicans. But he struggled to gain the support of several Democrats, who never explicitly opposed Chipman's nomination but also never publicly supported him either.

"David Chipman spent 25 years in distinguished service to our country as an ATF agent," President Biden said in a statement Thursday. "David Chipman spent 25 years in distinguished service to our country as an ATF agent."

Biden added: "Unfortunately, Republicans in Congress have made clear that they intend to use gun crime as a political talking point instead of taking serious steps to address it. That’s why they’ve moved in lockstep to block David Chipman’s confirmation, and it’s why they side with gun manufacturers over the overwhelming majority of the American people in opposing commonsense measures like universal background checks."

Biden also said he is "grateful" for Chipman's work to fight gun violence. 

The Washington Post first reported the development, which several Republicans who led the fight against Chipman's nomination welcomed. 

"Mr. Chipman’s long record as a partisan, anti-Second Amendment activist raised plenty of concerns about how he’d administer federal firearms laws. But that wasn’t the only cause for concern," Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said. "The record he concealed from Congress, some of which remains hidden to this day, about how he treated his fellow employees while at the ATF confirms his lack of fitness to lead the agency."

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who has often supported Biden's executive nominees, celebrated Chipman's downfall as well.

"Glad to hear reports the White House is taking my advice and pulling the terrible nomination of David Chipman," McConnell tweeted. "Absurd that a vocal opponent of Americans' constitutional rights was ever picked to run ATF. This is a win for the Second Amendment and law-abiding American citizens."

"I’ve been opposed to David Chipman leading the ATF from the start. He's an anti-Second Amendment, gun-grabbing radical that should not lead the agency that regulates firearms," Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., said. 

placeholderSenate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin, D-Ill., blamed the "gun lobby," which staunchly opposed Chipman, for the nominee's downfall. But the nominee would have been confirmed if it weren't for one or more of Durbin's Democratic Senate colleagues opposing him as well. 

"ATF is a federal agency focused on reducing gun violence by enforcing the law and prohibiting the sale of firearms to convicted felons and other dangerous individuals.  The gun industry resents their work as it limits sales and holds them accountable for violations of the law," Durbin said. "That is why the gun lobby is determined to leave the Director’s position vacant."

"David Chipman is the latest target of their concerted effort," Durbin continued. "We cannot be cowered by gun dealers who are flooding America with crime guns."

Chipman previously worked for gun control groups Giffords and Everytown. A third gun control group, Brady United, condemned the Senate for failing to confirm Chipman. 

"It is hugely disappointing and unconscionable that 50 members of the U.S. Senate as well as at least one senator who caucuses with the President’s party would deny President Biden his choice to lead the ATF. It is even more concerning that they would do so by parroting the talking points of the gun lobby, which has spread misinformation and blatant lies about David Chipman since his nomination was announced," Brady President Kris Brown said. 

"It is immoral and indefensible that the only agency with regulatory oversight over the gun industry has been permitted to persist for so many years without leadership, because of the outsized influence the gun industry has over what used to be considered ‘the world’s greatest deliberative body,’" Brown added. She also said that "we cannot continue to allow this position to be senate-confirmable."

Chipman himself, meanwhile, called on Congress to quickly confirm another director for the ATF who will fight against gun violence. 

"I knew this confirmation process would be difficult, and while ultimately we weren’t successful, it remains essential that ATF is led by a confirmed Director who is accountable to the public and places no special interests before the safety of our children and our communities," Chipman said. "I’d like to thank Gabby Giffords, whose courage is contagious, and all the other victims of senseless violence who have inspired me to never give up this fight."

This marks the second major defeat for one of President Biden's nominees of his term. The White House withdrew its nomination of Neera Tanden to run the Office of Management and Budget earlier this year, after Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., announced he opposed her over her controversial Twitter history. 

It's unclear at this point who could be the White House's pick to replace Chipman. The Senate hasn't confirmed an ATF director for years. 

When Biden first announced the Chipman nomination, he called Chipman "he’s the right person, at this moment, for this important agency." At least some Senate Democrats appear to disagree.

Yeah I saw that announcement too and was glad but, then I also read where the Biden (dis)Administration is talking about appointing a "Gun Czar" to rule from on high since they can't get somebody they want to head the ATF.  They also mentioned the idea of a "Gun Czar" came from some XO's Trump signed that were not very popular with the 2A crowd.

Not sure it would matter much, either is unconstitutional.

Sorry, it was more than one place I heard about this stuff.  One was a newsletter from 80% Arms for week of September 10th.



Another was a report I saw around same time:


He covered the groups demanding Biden create a "Gun Czar" and Trump's precedents for using XO's to ban things like bump stocks and "red flag" confiscations

Biden's original "gun czar" was gonna be Beto O'Rourke.   You saw where the entire Biden Administration left that chump - on the curb.

SlowJow is a lot of talk.  He hasn't accomplished a single thing in his "reign" so far, besides damage.

Not true. I think he’s been a major help to the Republican Party. Even a few democrats are starting to wake up. We almost have one converted at the office.  Assuming we get to have another election…it might go OK. No I haven’t been drinking.  Yes, I am a little delirious.

I 250% agree on that.  But I don't think they care.  I think they know damn well what they're doing, and it isn't about what they think is good for the country.  It is simply to destroy and take it down.  They've all made their deals and of course they don't need guns for themselves since they can have all the justice and bodyguards their ill-gotten $$ can buy.

Oh I'm sure there will be more elections, they'll just be as fraudulent as 2020 was, and California won't be the only state they "just can't seem to vote these people out" of anymore.

They're doing their best to keep people who DO give a damn tied up and distracted with all the rattlesnakes they keep turning loose on us so we can't fix elections at the state and local/county level in time, and I don't see many states telling the federal government and private interests to keep the hell out of their states' election process either.  Why not?  Hmmm...  could it be 'NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE GIVE A DAMN'?
