Writing at Cincinnati.com Monday, a pair of Republican congressmen explain the problems with Capitol Hill gun control efforts, from not reading legislation to passing measures that will not prevent crimes, raising the most important question of all: Do devout anti-gunners even care?

Politicians making sweeping promises they can’t keep is nothing new on the campaign trail. The vitriol as of late — assigning blame for the horrific crimes of sick and twisted individuals to the firearms industry – is something that has become, unfortunately, predictable. It’s part of the political gamesmanship from those who don’t understand our industry or respect our rights or the values for which our industry stands.

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
Amid a renewed push for all kinds of gun control following mass shooting incidents in three states over two consecutive weekends, the White House (Trump administration) has reached out to leaders in the Second Amendment community seeking their input, a marked change from the previous administration.

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!
In their second debate, Democratic presidential hopefuls appearing Tuesday night in Detroit pushed gun control in reaction to the shooting incident in Gilroy, California, but they called for the same “solutions” and Pete Buttigieg suggested more should be done, only by vaguely stating, “We know what to do, and it has not happened.” [Read more…] about Dems Debate Gun Control That Does Not Work, Demand More
“Gun safety is going to be a defining issue for 2020,” Feinblatt said. “The gun safety movement has never been stronger and the gun rights movement has never been weaker.” Gun owners need to wake up before the election… [Read more…] about Gun Control Lobby Executive Blunt About Challenge Facing 2A Faithful
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.

Declaring that the National Rifle Association has been in “a perpetual state of turmoil” recently, the billionaire-backed Everytown for Gun Safety—Michael Bloomberg’s gun prohibition lobbying group—says “NRA is on its heels and we can keep it there” as Virginia lawmakers prepare for Gov. Ralph Northam’s gun control special session Tuesday.

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…’
In a hand-wringing press release published at Insider NJ, Union County Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski may have unintentionally provided a “Well, Duh!” observation to gun control proponents across America’s political landscape that their crusade against gun rights is an abject failure.

The Second District Appellate Court recently dismissed an attempt by the Village of Deerfield, Illinois to challenge a permanent injunction against the community’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” and “large-capacity magazines.” [Read more…] about Illinois: Appeals Court Dismisses Deerfield Appeal
Anti-gun activists have “forced” Democrat candidates for president to “take a stand on gun control,” according to a Yahoo News report, and they all seem to be scrambling to stake out their positions, the more far-reaching the better.

ATF has been without a permanent director since B. Todd Jones resigned in 2015. [Read more…] about ATF Director: ASA Supports Chuck Canterbury
Brazilian gun laws are some of the strictest in the world. President Jair Bolsonaro started to reform the administration of the laws in 2019. He did this by using his power of Presidential decrees. This changes the rules of how the law is administered. Much of the abuse under the law was through the administrative rules. Changes to the law must come through the Congress, those changes have not been enacted yet. [Read more…] about Video: Watch Brazil, See the Failure of Gun Control
Man Allegedly Hiding Drugs In Backside Accidentally Shoots Himself In Testicles
I must admit, FOX News originally ran this story. At first, I thought it was simply too good not to share. I mean, this is cosmic justice for a career criminal. Then, I thought about it a bit more and realized that it is also the type of story that, unfortunately, gives law-abiding gun owners a bad name. Yes. Although he is a career criminal, an armed bad guy, it will give the law-abiding guns a bad name. Stories of negligent discharges such as this are, and will in the future, be used against us by the anti gunners. It is not right or fair; they will not spend any time to discover the details of how this nimrod who was legally forbidden from owning or possessing a firearm magically ended up with a gun in his pants. Instead, it will go down as a statistic of a “gun owner” mishandling a firearm and shooting himself. This is another area where, we as gun owners, need to combat the misuse of information that is erroneously used against us.
