Due to a massive number of Second Amendment news stories, we're having an ACP  Round Table to discuss them! Join Erin, Weer'd, David, and Oddball as we analyze:

  • SCOTUS' ruling against the Bump Stock Ban,  and not only is the decision amazing but so is the dissent (but for entirely different reasons);
  • North Texas' District Court vacating the Pistol Brace Ban;
  • YouTube's new and draconian gun policy;
  • Hunter Biden's conviction of lying on a Form 4473, and the ironic possibility that his appeal will make him a champion for gun rights;
  • President Biden speaking at the "Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund’s Gun Sense University Conference" while his son was being convicted (the speech was as boring as you'd expect);
  • and an alleged attack thwarted by law enforcement which Weer'd finds fishy.

To celebrate our 300th episode, we're having an ACP Round Table!  (Sadly, no one is dressed as a Spartan.) Join Queen Erinidas alongside Weer'd Beard, Oddball, Xander, and David as they take a stroll to the Hot Gates of the NRA Annual Meeting and discuss:

  • signs at the NRA Annual Meeting that the corruption is still around, but the members are clearly wising up and taking the NRA to task for it;;
  • Donald Trump's speech at NRAAM, which was more of the usual and with minimal talk of gun rights;
  • the possibility of Ronnie Barrett of Barrett Firearms becoming the next NRA Executive Vice President (but the day after recording this we discovered that Barrett didn't win);
  • more tourists arrested in the Turks and Caicos Islands for having a few pieces of ammunition in their luggage;.
  • the 9th Circuit Court striking down Hawaii's butterfly knife ban;
  • firearm prohibitionist politicians turning on the dubious Shot Spotter technology, citing racism;
  • a Federal court issuing a temporary restraining order against the ATF's change in the "Engaging in the Business of Selling Firearms" law;
  • legislation introduced in Congress to remove the $200 tax stamp requirement for SBRs, SBSs, and suppressors;
  • another NFA challenge regarding suppressors that are made in Texas and stay in Texas;
  • another surprising rule by the 9th Circuit, where one judge in three ruled that felons aren't part of "The People";
  • plus the usual silliness and side-tracking that happens with Round Tables.

  • The courts have ruled against three gun licensing laws: the ATF's pistol brace ban, Oregon's Measure 114, and Maryland's handgun ownership license;
  • The Tennessee ERPO bill is officially dead from lack of support;
  • The Louisville Bank shooter's police report is now public, and he was motivated by gun control;
  • and to no one's surprise, the ATF has declared ownership of "Solvent Traps" to be a crime.
