MILLER: Pressure for Supreme Court to take up Drake case and rule on concealed carry laws for nation

Timed to coincide with Bill of Rights Day, and coming a day after the first anniversary of the Newtown shootings: it's "Guns Save Lives Day," organized by one Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York is running out of ammunition in his campaign for gun control. The public has moved on.
"Nullification" laws have been introduced in 37 states that technically make it a felony for law enforcement agents to enforce federal restrictions banning firearms, and a recent Rasmussen poll shows that 38 percent support such state laws.
The Supreme Court is staying out of the gun debate for now. The justices on Monday declined to hear a challenge to a strict New York law that makes it difficult for residents to get a license to carry a concealed handgun in public.
While the debate over restricting guns rages in Congress and state legislatures, firearms advocates are turning to the courts to expand the playing field for carrying concealed weapons — and scoring some victories.

The Department of Homeland Security has an unmanned drone fleet with technology that can root out civilians who are carrying guns, government documents show.

Florida is preparing to issue its 1 millionth concealed-carry permit while a federal court ruling this week left the nation's capital as the only place in the United States with a total ban on carrying concealed weapons — developments that have gun advocates feeling that momentum is on their side in the national debate over whether Americans can remain armed once they leave home.
