TWO new, federal lawsuits, which may kill NY's unSAFE Act

    There are TWO California federal law suits, which have the potential to knock the socks off NY’s unSAFE Act, via SCOTUS. They are:

Duncan et al. v. Becerra, No. 17-1017 (Southern District of California brief, filed June 5th, 2017); and Wiese et al. v. Becerra, No. 17-cv-00903 (Eastern District of California brief, filed June 23rd, 2017).

Both are challenging California’s similar statute and are NOT expected to be collapsed, for fear of going forward, as was the NY suit. NRA and other organizations are strongly behind each of these actions.

PDFs of each complaint are attached, for your review.

Sig Sauer rifle recall

"SIG SAUER – MCX Mandatory Carriage Assembly Replacement Program

SIG SAUER is conducting a mandatory replacement of the carriage assembly, in SIG MCX rifles. SIG has found, through extensive factory testing, that in extremely rare instances, not reported in the field and extremely difficult to replicate, a condition may exist causing an unintended discharge. Failure to follow the loading procedures and basic rules of safe firearms handling, as outlined in the user’s manual, has the potential to cause serious bodily harm or death. Although this has only been witnessed in 300 blackout, SIG has decided to upgrade all MCX models, since the MCX is a modular platform and they want to ensure the quality and reliability of all products they manufacture.
