The majority of Americans favor stricter gun controls, but gun owners are much more likely to be politically active and to contact public officials about their beliefs, according to a new survey that goes a long way toward explaining the political power of Second Amendment advocates.
As a candidate, Donald J. Trump frequently mentioned the shootings that claim hundreds of lives here each year. As a new president, he threatened on Twitter to “send in the Feds!” if the local authorities did not stop the “carnage.” Five months later, Mr. Trump had another message about the city, as officials here announced a program that deploys more federal agents to address the city’s gun crime.“Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help,” Mr. Trump wrote Friday morning on Twitter.

The U.S. Conference of Mayors met for their 85th Annual Meeting from June 23-26 in sunny Miami Beach, Fla. Continuing a tradition almost as old as the meeting, the assembled mayors schemed on how to prevent the American people from exercising their right to keep and bear arms.
The battle to secure Second Amendment rights is ever-evolving. On Monday, gun owners were dealt a disappointing blow with the Supreme Court’s refusal to review the legal scheme that empowers California counties to effectively ban the bearing of arms (see related article). Yet by Thursday, Second Amendment advocates were cheering a federal court’s opinion blocking enforcement of California’s draconian magazine ban. That opinion, in Duncan v. Becerra, shows what’s possible when a federal judge treats the right to keep and bear arms with the respect deserved by all provisions within the Bill of Rights.
A federal judge on Thursday granted a request for an injunction against enforcement of California’s new ban on standard capacity magazines. The ban was set to go into effect July 1.
