USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Gary B. Wells is announcing the publication of his third edition of “Firearm Laws: Volume 1: Federal Infringements” and his second edition of “Firearm Laws: Volume 2: Texas Infringements.”
Regardless of how the firearm laws are erroneously characterized (i.e., reasonable, common sense, minimally intrusive, etc.), they are infringements on the “right of the people to keep and bear arms.” So long as these infringements are being enforced, it is necessary to understand these laws to avoid getting into legal trouble and losing your firearm rights, whether as an individual or as a federal firearms licensee.
Often, the primary source for understanding firearms laws is based on well-intentioned, but erroneous information obtained from the Internet and fellow firearm enthusiasts. Even attorneys who practice primarily in unrelated areas of law have provided incorrect information on websites and legal seminars. There is no longer any excuse for relying on this information when the correct answers can be quickly obtained from easily-affordable books designed to provide accurate information about what the law prohibits, the procedures to obtain what you want, and the requirements to keep you out of trouble.
Firearm Laws Volume 1 Federal Infringements
Several areas of firearm laws have been expanded in the updated federal book, included in these updates is new information about 1) the bogus grounds for the administrative bump-stock ban; 2) information explaining the differences and laws about 80%, 3-D printed, and plastic or undetectable firearms; 3) expanded information about the laws regarding prohibited persons; 4) the limited federal remedies for firearm prohibitions, including “as-applied” challenges; 5) the more expanded and potential state remedies for firearm prohibition; 6) continued problems with traveling with firearms despite federal laws; and 7) FFL procedures for aiding in the private transfer of firearms. The federal book continues to provide extensive details of the laws provided under the Gun Control Act, the National Firearms Act, and the Import/Export Act, including what is being regulated, prohibited persons, prohibited locations, transportation of firearms, transfers and background checks, and NFA firearms. Also included is extensive information about federal firearm license requirements (dealers, importers, manufacturers, and collectors), serializations and marking requirements, recordkeeping requirements, and inspections. Firearms laws regarding law enforcement officers and gun shows are also provided.
The book has been expanded from 599 pages in the first edition to 702 pages. The price is $60.00 (including 2-3 priority shipping).
Firearm Laws Volume 2 Texas Infringements
Volume 2 on Texas laws has also been significantly expanded and updated to include recent legislation limiting restrictions and posting prohibition signs by municipalities, preventing home owner’s associations from prohibiting firearms possession, and limiting restrictions by those leasing or renting residential properties. Also included are the new laws providing a defense for those licensed to carry if they unknowingly enter property that has prohibition signs; expanding the rights to carry a firearm in emergencies; changes to the school marshal program; prohibiting restrictions on possessing firearms in private vehicles parked on school property, and correcting the inconsistency in the law that appeared to prohibit carrying in churches whether or not prohibition signs were posted. Businesses who choose not to post-prohibition signs are provided with civil liability protection. (Legislation should be passed holding businesses and other entities liable where they prohibit concealed and open carry, yet fail to provide adequate security on their own.) Significant additional information has been provided regarding the limited processes for removing firearms prohibitions, including pardons, expunction of records, and the restoration of firearm rights. These remedies remain significantly more limited for those convicted of non-violent felonies or where those felonies occurred decades previously than in other states and require further legislation.
The book provides Texas firearms law information about prohibited weapons, persons, and places; hunting and target shooting, transfers, concealed and open carry, firearm business requirements, shooting ranges, license to carry instructors, law enforcement, private security, institutions of higher education, and the notice requirements and other laws for non-firearms businesses and entities.
The book has been expanded to 508 pages and the price is $50.00 (including 2-3 priority shipping).
