A Federal Judge in Ohio has thrown out a frivolous lawsuit brought against several manufacturers of AR-15 style rifles with prejudice. The judge stated that the legislature, not the courts, is the proper place to deal with firearms laws.

During our Brownells Bullet Points, Paul and Jarrad discuss their recent testing of the Canik TP9 Elite SC. How can we engage in practical and realistic testing and evaluation of a new pistol?

Also, for our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, Professor Paul has yet one more example of a homeless person attacking an innocent victim. The lesson of the story is, do not allow strangers, regardless, into your personal space.

A St. Paul police officer tried to give a homeless woman a break as he confronted her shoplifting from a downtown grocery store.

But instead of accepting the officer’s gesture, she stabbed him twice and is now jailed on felony charges, according to a criminal complaint.

Articia L. Moore, 23, was charged Tuesday in Ramsey County District Court with second-degree assault and assaulting a police officer in connection with the encounter Monday night at the downtown Lunds & Byerlys on E. 10th Street. Moore remains jailed ahead of a court appearance scheduled for Wednesday.

Chalk up a legal victory for the gun industry. The U.S. District Court (Southern District of Ohio) has dismissed, with prejudice, the Primus Group v. Smith & Wesson, et al lawsuit. The decision was delivered October 9, eliminating the plaintiff’s claims against several prominent AR-15 firearms manufacturers, including Smith & Wesson, Remington Arms Company, SIG Sauer, Sturm, Ruger & Company, Colt Manufacturing, and Armalite.

“This decision by the federal judge to dismiss with prejudice this frivolous case is pleasing, if not unexpected,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs and General Counsel. “These are lawful and federally-regulated AR-15 modern sporting rifle manufacturers that make semiautomatic rifles for lawful purposes. The judge was absolutely correct to assert that the proper venue to establish public firearms policy is through the legislature and not the courts.”
