“The Second Amendment Protection Act” passed with a veto-proof majority in North Carolina on June 25th. Then Governor Roy Cooper (D) vetoed the legislation. The bill contained sensible gun law reforms related to concealed carry permits. Of course, the governor’s veto should have been overridden by the legislature. Instead… To uphold the veto, nine Democrats and five Republicans changed their vote. Dean Weingarten, AmmoLand.com The votes against overriding the governor’s veto (including absentees): Rep. Beasly, District 92 (D) Rep. Farmer-Butterfield, District 24 (D) Rep. John Sr., District 40 (D) Rep. Pierce, District 48 (D) Rep. Davis, District 4 (R) Rep. Elmore, District 94 (R) Rep.Read More →

If you pay federal taxes to IRS, your money is being used to fund the operations of gun control organizations, including using your money to help fund anti-candidates who are seeking election to destroy constitutional rights and take your guns. Apparently the Brady Campaign and the Giffords gun control group whined that revenue was down because of COVID so they needed money to pay their employees and received hundred of thousands of dollars of your tax money. Check out Dan Zimmerman‘s piece on The Truth About Guns.Read More →

In another great piece from Dan Zimmerman over at The Truth About Guns, we learn that the “Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence received between $350,000 and $1 million on April 10 to support 41 employees, according to the Small Business Administration.” NRA didn’t take the money. Neither did the Second Amendment Foundation. Brady Campaign accepted between $350,000 and $1 million on April 10 to support 41 employees. The Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence accepted a loan worth between $150,000 and $350,000 on April 28 in order to meet payroll for 16 employees.Read More →

Marion Hammer leaves nothing on the field. She authored a succinct perspective on the National Rifle Association and its rightful place in American history, copied here in its entirety: The NRA is our nation’s leader in teaching firearms safety to children and firearms education and training to adult gun owners. We have a proud history of protecting the Second Amendment for freedom loving, law-abiding Americans. Our heritage is one of protecting constitutional rights and Freedom. The National Rifle Association was founded in 1871. NRA is 149 years old. NRA was already 6 years old when the telephone patent was granted to Alexander Graham Bell. NRARead More →

From America’s First Freedom: Presumptive Democratic 2020 presidential nominee Joe Biden is not one for clarity, tact or a firm grasp of the facts. However, even an American public that has long been aware of his shortcomings was taken aback in early March when the former vice president launched an unhinged attack on a pro-Second Amendment autoworker. The verbal dispute occurred as Biden toured a Fiat Chrysler plant in Michigan as the state was holding its primary. As Biden made his rounds, autoworker JerryRead More →

Washington, April 9, 2020 These elected representatives from California are part of the group who sent this to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. They want the Department of Homeland Security to remove gun retailers and manufacturers from the list of essential businesses in its guidance to local and state officials in containing the spread of COVID-19. Firearm distributors provide no proven public health benefit, and in fact, the proliferation of guns pose added safety threats to communities. Remember these names during our election cycle. Among the Members signing the letter: Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-13); Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32); Rep. Jerry McNerney (CA-09); Rep. Julia Brownley (CA-26)Read More →

It is surprising for me to see how the most successful leader the NRA has in its history – who is responsible for more successes in the protection of our 2nd Amendment rights – is being maligned by vaunted names in journalism like the Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. Over the years, he has brought billions of dollars into the organization to keep it strong and to successfully fight gun control schemes by billionaires like Bloomberg and Soros and politicians like Clinton and Obama, yet he is attacked for a salary that is smaller than what both for-profit and non-profit organizations that areRead More →
