    Supreme Court Justices Call Second Amendment Case ‘Distressing’

    Supreme Court Justices Call Second Amendment Case ‘Distressing’

    FOX's Eben Brown has this week's 'FOX Bullet Points': I'm Eben Brown. Second Amendment advocates are a bit upset the U.S. Supreme Court didn't take up the case of a California man suing over a denial of a concealed carry permit. In Peruta v. California, the sheriff in San Diego says he can refuse to issue concealed carry permits if the applicant doesn't show a real need for one. Justices Thomas and Gorsuch published a dissent to the court's rejection, calling it 'distressing.' Meanwhile, in Kansas, it'll be legal to carry without a permit on college campus' starting this Saturday. You know PayPal, and Square, and Stripe? All three are used more and more by retailers to complete electronic payments. But the three outfits, which are not banks, are now the target of a class action lawsuit. Firearms retailer Blar Gladwin of California, who has his federal firearms license, say the three agencies deny him their services because he sells guns. Gladwin claims it's a civil rights violation.

    Gun Owners of America Aren’t On Board with Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids

    Gun Owners of America Aren’t On Board with Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids

    One gun group is fighting over-the-counter hearing aids. FOX's Eben Brown has more with 'FOX Bullet Points': I'm Eben Brown. A bill in the U.S. Senate aims to reduce the cost of hearing aids, the kind your doctor would prescribe you for hearing loss. The proposed law would create class of hearing aids that could be sold at low cost and over the counter. But the measure is getting flak by groups like Gun Owners of America, who say the legislation could wind up regulating personal sound amplifiers used by hunters and sold at sporting goods stores. Dateline: Seattle, where city leaders are turning out their pockets now that a tax on gun sales, aimed at raising a half million in revenue while curbing firearms sales in the city, has so far brought in less than half the expected cash. People are just buying guns outside city limits avoiding the tax. Meanwhile, police in Seattle have seen a 70 percent jump in calls for service due to shots fired, and the number of shooting victims is up 30 percent. And those are your Bullet Points!

    Concealed Carry Permits are on the Rise

    Concealed Carry Permits are on the Rise

    Concealed carry permits are rising. FOX's Eben Brown has your 'FOX Bullet Points': I'm Eben Brown. More and more of you are getting your concealed carry permits. A compilation of the number of applications by the Crime Prevention Research Center says the number of concealed weapons licenses in the United States now exceeds 15 million, almost 16 million. The center will have its yearly data ready this summer. But it shows what other record-keepers at places like the NRA have been saying: The number of women getting their concealed carry permits is far greater than the number of men. Big problem with concealed carry and personal information in Florida. The sunshine state has well over a million and a half permits issued, but hackers may have stolen the private data of about 16,000 people. The state's agriculturedepartment, which manages the permit program, says they'll offer free credit monitoring for about 500 people they know they're social security numbers may have been stolen.

    New York Magazine Receives Criticism after Article about NRA

    New York Magazine Receives Criticism after Article about NRA

    FOX's Eben Brown has your 'FOX Bullet Points': I'm Eben Brown. New York Magazine is taking some flak for saying the NRA has found an ally in the terrorists of the Islamic state group. The magazine says their sources from ISIS, and previously al-Qaeda, had often joked about how easy it would be for one of their henchmen to get an AR-15 at a gun show in the much of the United States. The article was meant to highlight the NRA's stance on the supposed 'gun show loophole' regarding background checks. And it may come to pass that the U.S. Supreme Court will be the deciding factor in whether or not you have the right to keep and bear arms outside your home. The case is Peruta v California and has to do with the sheriff in San Diego not issuing permits to people who didn't provide a specific need to carry. Now that the high court has nine justices once again, there is belief the court will take up the case soon. And those are your Bullet Points! I'm Eben Brown, FOX News!

    Be Careful About What You Like on Instagram, Especially If You’re a Student

    Be Careful About What You Like on Instagram, Especially If You’re a Student

    Use caution when liking things on Instagram. FOX's Eben Brown reports: I'm Eben Brown. Parents of an Ohio middle schooler are relieved their son is allowed back to school after being suspended for liking a picture of a gun on Instagram: (Bolin) "I didn't think I did anything wrong." Zachary Bolin's parent's didn't think so either. He wasn't even at school when he clicked the photo of which, by the way, was an airsoft pistol. But when he showed up for class the next morning, he was brought aside and patted down. School officials in Edgewood City called it a 'threat' especially because the picture's caption reads as 'ready.' We at Bullet Points would like to express condolences to the family of Bob Owens. He was the longtime editor of the 'Bearing Arms' website and giant in the world of Second Amendment advocacy. Owens was just 46-years old. Authorities have ruled his death a suicide. A note on social media posted by Owen's wife Christine reads, "You were a wonderful husband, loving father." I'm Eben Brown, FOX News! Follow Eben Brown on Twitter: @FOXEbenBrown

    Texas Lawmakers Focused on Lowering Price of a Carry Permit

    Texas Lawmakers Focused on Lowering Price of a Carry Permit

    The NRA holds its annual meeting and Texas making it easier to carry in state. FOX's Eben Brown with details in this "Bullet Points": I'm Eben Brown. The annual meeting of the National Rifle Association wrapped up after a weekend in Atlanta, and a visit from President Trump. And with a new NRA president. The board of directors picks Pete Brownwell to head the NRA. He's from Montezuma, Iowa and is part of the long-lived family firearms retailer Brownell's. Wayne Lapierre will continue as executive vice-president and legendary NASCAR owner Richard Childress is now first vice-president. Texas state lawmakers are looking to cut down the price of a carry permit. The very gun-friendly lone state has often been criticized for it's expensive permit fees, at a $140, one of the nation's highest. A new bill would bring the price down to $40 for both new licenses and renewals and would be free for peace officers. That would make it be one of the lowest cost permits in the USA.
