Topsail Gun Gal March 2024

On March 12th, US District Judge Saylor will decide what to do about the $10 Billion

(with a B) lawsuit against firearm manufacturers in the USA brought on by Mexico. The

lawsuit, filed in 2021, states that over 500,000 firearms were illegally brought into

Mexico through the United States and therefore the big firearm manufacturers are

responsible for supporting the Cartels and the violent crimes that accompany them. In

most cases, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) would be used to

dismiss the lawsuit, but in this case, Mexico is claiming the gun manufacturers

committed criminal acts. The firearm manufacturers include Glock, Beretta USA, Smith

& Wesson, Colt, Sturm, Ruger & Co. and Barrett.

On a different note, the Mexican cartel is setting up shop on Indian Reservations across

Montana. The State, known for its expansive open spaces, only has 20 DEA agents.

Georgia Senate Bill 344 is proposing a tax-free holiday for firearms, ammunition, and

firearm accessories. The holiday would be five days in October and designed to

promote hunting.

A gun shop and the former gun shop owner of Federal Way Discount Guns in

Washington State has agreed to pay a $3,000,000 (million) dollar fine for selling

magazines that hold more than 10 rounds after the law was changed in 2022. Another

shop was also fined but that amount was only $15,000.00 for violating the law. The gun

shop owner’s defense was that local law enforcement told him the law was

unconstitutional and therefore he didn’t need to worry about it.

In 2020, the 9 th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a ban on “large capacity” magazines was unconstitutional and violated a citizen’s 2 nd amendment. To date, 14 states still have restrictions and I bet you can guess which ones those are.

57% of Ohio voters decided to vote for marijuana legalization, but an Ohio

representative is warning her colleagues that their movement to create restrictions was

against the will of the people. “People have told us time and time again when Issue 2

was passed what they want. All we’re doing right now is going against the people’s will.”

A smart politician!

Gangs of young men from Venezuela are impacting the safety of tourists and residents

in New York City. A 15-year-old male, who arrived a few months ago from Venezuela,

was arrested for shooting a woman in the leg in Times Square, surrounded by cameras.

Just when you think the world can’t get any stranger, PETA (People for the ethical

treatment of animals) may have gone a bit too far. With a world full of living animals that

need help and protection, PETA has decided to take on the manufacturer of fake

animals. Carousel animals, like horses, camels and elephants, suddenly need

protection from abuse. The president of PETA wrote, “Animal-themed carousel sets

reinforce the notion that these sentient beings are simply here for our entertainment,

rather than individuals with the same capacity to experience fear, pain, joy and love as

any of us.”

Does this person not realize carousel animals were made exactly for our entertainment?

Do you know how many times I waited in line as a child to get the really cool horse?

This was no little task by the way; a lot of people wanted the cool horses. I guess my

concern is that the group has lost focus of the important work out there – protecting

living animals, not statues.

What does PETA want to replace the statues of animals with? Cars, tractors, brooms,

and rainbows. Yes, you read that right – brooms and rainbows. Tell me how that is not a

direct attack on witches and leprechauns? How rude, not to mention that is not a group I

would want to upset.

Remember knowledge is power, leprechauns live at the end of rainbows, and nothing

good can come from a carousel of witches riding brooms.
