"It is the very nature of power that it attracts the very sort of people who should not have it. The United States, as the world's last superpower, is a prize that attracts men and women willing to do anything to win that power, and hence are willing to do anything with it once they have it. It is racist to assume that tyrants appear only in other nations and that somehow America is immune simply because we're Americans. America has escaped the clutches of a dictatorship only through the efforts of those citizens who, unlike the Germans and Russians of the 1930s, have the moral courage to stand up and point out where the government is lying to the people." -- Michael Rivero

A measure allowing people to carry concealed weapons anywhere without permits was approved by Florida’s Republican-controlled Legislature on Thursday.

The proposal would do away with extra background checks, licenses, and additional regulations for firearms training that are currently part of the concealed weapons permit process.

Under current law, people who want to carry concealed weapons in public in Florida must acquire licenses from the state and meet certain requirements in order to do so.

On Monday, First Liberty Institute and law firm Clement & Murphy filed a lawsuit with the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on behalf of His Tabernacle Family Church, a nondenominational New York church, challenging an allegedly unconstitutional ban on firearms in houses of worship.

The suit alleges that the law discriminates against religious establishments, makes them vulnerable to outside violence, and violates two Supreme Court rulings.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to answer a question on Wednesday over whether President Joe Biden’s proposed ban on some semi-automatic long guns will lead to the confiscation of millions of Americans’ guns.

The question comes after a transgender shooter murdered six people, including three children, at a Christian school in Nashville this week.

“Does the president support not just banning the sale and the manufacture of semi-automatic weapons, but further than that, confiscation?” a reporter asked Jean-Pierre.

At a Tuesday Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas agreed with President Joe Biden's stance on banning assault weapons in the U.S. but could not provide a definition of the term.

Kennedy asked Mayorkas what an assault weapon is, and Myorkas responded with the example of an AK-47.

At a congressional hearing on Thursday, Democratic Representative Cori Bush of Missouri expressed her disapproval of Republicans' interpretation of the Second Amendment.

She argued that they prioritize "toys" over lives and favor the U.S. having an even higher share of the world's gun supply. In her words, this is a "perverted view of the Second Amendment."
