    8,722 - Federal appeals courts ring in New Year with 2d Amendment victories


    In 2014 gun rights proponents achieved a string of gun rights victories in the courts, legislatures, and public opinion. The courts struck down a number of federal and state gun restrictions on Second Amendment grounds, the legislatures of Kansas and Missouri legalized the open carry of handguns, and voters in Castle Rock, Colorado voted to repeal restrictions on open carry.

    Meanwhile, public pressure forced New Jersey officials into easing off zero-tolerance policies against gun owners traveling through the Garden State, and the New York Times concluded that the term “assault weapon” was a “myth,” . . .
