‘Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.’ ~Winston Churchill. The words are as true today as when Churchill uttered them in 1948 or George Santayana when he originally said essentially the same thing in 1905. Yet, major organizations, those with no stake in politics, are taking political sides and alienating their consumers in the process. Perhaps the CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods was just ignorant of his consumer base or Yeti made a miscalculation when it cut ties with the NRA. However, when it comes to NASCAR taking an anti-gun approach, it simply baffles the imagination as to who is calling the shots and how out of touch they are with their fan base.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has suffered from its own internal struggles as of late, as well as the optics, if not the actual facts, of its previous actions. Many of these issues have been due to recent events, but on a recent K-Var podcast, the NRA’s hand in gun control against blacks was also discussed. The NRA, as with any major organization, is far from perfect. [Read more…] about The NRA Asks You to Stand With It for 2A Rights

Mrgunsngear on Instagram has posted a helluva question—I’ll rephrase it a bit to expand on the premise, “Are you really ready to confront a mass shooter… an armed, determined individual who is intent on committing mass murder and most likely looking to die anyway?” The answer is anything but simple.

Some stories are just too good to be true. Not that anyone should take any enjoyment out of a man and his wife going through the traumatic experience of being held up at gunpoint, but the irony… Only a few weeks after claiming his new post would be akin to his time in the “Big Easy,” he gets mugged, at gunpoint, in a city the anti-gunners hold up as a shining example of why we need more gun control laws! Read the full story from the New York Post. [Read more…] about Baltimore Deputy Police Commissioner Mugged at Gunpoint!

Triggered by concerns for the endangered California condor, which inhabit some regions of the state, a bill was signed into law in October 2013 banning all lead ammunition for the taking of game anywhere in the state.

What a difference three years makes. The first primary debates showed us just how far the Democrats have drifted on Second Amendment rights. Anti-gun politicians were once coy about their goals—that’s not so true today. President Barack Obama told PBS’s Gwen Ifill during a town hall in 2016, “And at no point have I ever, ever proposed confiscating guns from responsible gun owners. So it’s just not true.” Now the presumed front-runner, former Vice President Joe Biden has put the entire firearms manufacturing industry in his crosshairs. “Our enemy is the gun manufacturers, not the NRA, the gun manufacturers,” Biden said.

Round 1 of the first Democrat candidates’ debates is history. If there is one thing upon which grassroots gun rights activists seem to agree, it’s that none of the democratic candidates on that Miami stage Wednesday evening had even a remote grasp of the Second Amendment, and what separates constitutionally-enumerated rights from government-regulated privileges.

In remarks reminiscent of the promises of a former president who assured Americans they could keep their doctors and health care plans, Democratic presidential hopeful Rep. Eric Swalwell brought his gun control demagoguery to Debate Night No. 2, insisting, “Keep your pistols, keep your rifles, keep your shotguns, but we can take the most dangerous weapons from the most dangerous people.” [Read more…] about ‘Keep Your Pistols, Rifles, Shotguns, But…’
