  • 4 Common Myths About The NRA…Busted

    Daily Caller ^ | 12/16/2014 | Daniel T. McElrath
    Myth 1: The NRA represents gun manufacturers. One of the most pervasive myths about NRA is that it represents firearm manufacturers. It doesn’t. It represents firearm owners. Firearm manufacturers are represented by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Yes, manufacturers often contribute money to the Association or raffle/contest prizes to one of its many programs, but NRA—at its heart—is a non-profit civil rights organization.Myth 2: The NRA’s power rests in how much money it gives out to candidates. Many gun-control advocates seem to have trouble believing that someone would disagree with them on a subject like gun control and that, if...

    A handful of families impacted by the Sandy Hook school shooting have decided to ease their grief by suing the manufacturer of AR style rifles. Obviously, a little unnecessary litigation is the most effective way to right the wrongs of a madman. According to CNBC: Ten families touched by the Newtown massacre filed a wrongful death lawsuit Monday against companies that made, distributed and sold the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that Adam Lanza used to kill 20 children and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary two years ago. The suit argues that the gun is a military assault weapon that never...

    Bad news for Michael Bloomberg: It turns out that Americans really like guns. While most of the focus for Black Friday is on the half-priced TVs, and Victoria Secret sales, a sizeable portion of Americans decided to head to their local gun store and pick up a new firearm. After all, nothing says “Merry Christmas” quite like an AK47 with a red and green bow on it. (Hint, hint, wink, wink.)Black Friday is known for being the biggest domestic shopping day of the year – and the firearm industry doesn’t generally miss out. On a typical day, the National Instant...

    I know this won’t be shocking, but we have some additional proof that the gaggle of anti-gun groups spread throughout the nation don’t generally have a firm grip on the civilian nature of our democratic republic. The pro-gun sheriff of Wicomico County in Maryland (yeah… there’s a pro-gun sheriff in Maryland) is under fire from anti-gunners after a comment he made about protecting the Second Amendment rights of Wicomico citizens. According to Delmarvanow.com, Sheriff Mike Lewis is on record explaining that Federal curbs to the Second Amendment will not be tolerated in his county:"As long as I'm the sheriff in this county,...

    Never before have I felt so naked. Now more than ever, I wish I was armed. And I’m not alone. Any and all home-grown Islamic terrorism should be able, if need be, to be met by a well-armed civilian militia. The United Kingdom has had two beheadings of members of the public in the last two years, with neither police nor civilians able to prevent it. It has prohibitive gun laws. With news of the ISIS plot to randomly abduct members of the Australian public and behead them, Australian sentiment on guns is dramatically shifting. It appears Australians are finally...

    Washington DC has been ordered to allow concealed handguns… But, c’mon, let’s not get carried away. I mean, why on Earth would we rush to allow such American freedoms in America’s capitol, right? Following in the footsteps of liberal enclaves like Boston, New York, and the People’s Republic of California, Washington DC is paying lip service to the Second Amendment by crafting a “May Issue” concealed carry rule.Essentially, the rule amounts to an arbitrary case-by-case determination of concealed carry applications, where applicants will be asked to provide a “legitimate” reason for carrying a gun. According to WJLA:The District is seeking to...
  • CA SB808 Need Help from Fellow Gun Owners Here

    I have been going across forums associated with gun owners in CA (i.e. Calgunst.net) with other fellow members seeking support from the firearms community in regard to a situation we have in CA. Recently, the overzealous anti-gun DeLeon had put together a bill called SB808, which requires us to register any home-built firearms and 80% receivers as firearms regardless if they are complete or not. This includes applying for serial numbers from the ATF. It's currently not a federal requirement to register a non-serialized firearm built from an 80% receiver. California is seeking to not only require any and all...

    Bloomberg seems to be throwing in the towel. Apparently the financially savvy former Mayor of the Big Apple is saying “no mas” to continued attacks on the Second Amendment. With fully armed security, the East Coast Nannycrat is retreating to his private business at Bloomberg LP. Most gun rights activists are lifting a glass in celebration. A man of Bloomberg’s fame (and fortune) certainly deserves a personalized send-off into anonymity… And so, I offer this humble eulogy to his avid disrespect for my personal safety:Dear Ernst Stavro Blofeld Michael Bloomberg;It’s been fun, Mikey.

    Well… I’m starting to run out of places to shop. Target Corporation (TGT) made the announcement on Wednesday that they have acquiesced to the Bloomberg fanatics who believe no-one should be armed while shopping. The company (politely) asked customers to keep their guns at home the next time they wander in for a DVD or Cuisinart. Of course, it’s not all bad news. After all, a Target store in San Antonio recently booted anti-gun activists from its store. The Bloomberg inspired group, Moms Demand Action (moms I know carry .380 automatics), was asked to leave the premises as they petitioned...

    Most gun control schemes do little, if anything, to positively effect change in criminal trends. In fact, such schemes have largely proven to be economically illiterate attempts to restrict and regulate the private ownership of firearms. And examples of the bad economics of gun control just keep piling up. I know, I know: Not everything is about the bottom line; but when the bottom line suffers in a misguided attempt to forward useless gun bans, I think it starts to matter a little bit more. In the latest example of gun-control killing private businesses, Century International Arms is laying off...

    Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. That adage has more application than usual in California, where Democrats hold all of the statewide offices and supermajorities in the legislature. They can enact any policies they want, with only the judicial branch offering belated checks on their power. And when I say belated, that’s literally the case with state Senator Rod Wright, whom a jury found guilty in January of committing eight felonies regarding his residency and eligibility for the office he held.Normally, politicians who get that kind of a verdict have the decency to resign. If not, the body in...

The allegations against State Sen. Leland Yee were outlined in an FBI criminal complaint that names 25 other defendants, including Raymond Chow, a onetime gang leader with ties to San Francisco's Chinatown known as "Shrimp Boy," and Keith Jackson, Yee's campaign aide. The affidavit accuses Yee of conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms. Yee...

    Western Springs and La Grange members of an anti-gun violence group are asking area businesses to post signs depicting No Guns Allowed. A new state law allows residents to carry concealed weapons, pending approval of permit applications through the Illinois State Police. The first such permits are expected to be issued beginning March 1. “I prefer to shop in places where I feel safe,” said Katherine Mudd, a Western Springs member of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. She has children, ages 7 and 9, and has been handing out postcards to area businesses.

    The ubiquitous coffee chain announced this week that it's asking patrons to stop bringing guns into its stores -- regardless of local gun laws. If you can't bring your gun to Starbucks, will you still bring your business there? Yes, this is a reasonable request that aims to ensure the safety of employees and customers. No, even though it's not an official mandate, the concept tramples all over the Second Amendment.

    (Reuters photo- with article) While many U.S. restaurant chains and retailers do not allow firearms on their properties, Starbucks' policy had been to default to local gun laws, including "open carry" regulations in many U.S. states that allow people to bring guns into stores. In August, this led gun-rights advocates to hold a national "Starbucks Appreciation Day" to thank the firm for its stance, pulling the company deeper into the fierce political fight. Locations for Starbucks Appreciation Day events included Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were shot dead in an elementary school in December. Starbucks closed that...

Now I’m not resisting.” Why a concealed carry permit would be useful in a home robbery was left unsaid, so the assumption must be that she intends to...

    The media agenda against guns is nothing new. But recent mass shootings have encouraged supposedly neutral journalists to push for gun regulation instead of reporting the facts surrounding the tragedies. One thing the media seldom mention is that both the Newtown and Aurora shootings occurred in gun free zones. In the Clackamas Town Center Shooting in Oregon, however, a gunman was stopped when someone with a concealed carry permit intervened. There were only two casualties in this shooting which received little media attention. If this incident was mentioned, the concealed carry part of the story was almost completely ignored. Some...

Gannett's Ethics Policy is unequivocally stated: “To affect change for the good in the communities we serve, to make life better for the people who trust us to know them and do right by them.” "Every day, all of us at Gannett are given the rare and sacred opportunity to affect...

    "The Hartford Courant reported last week that two Democratic legislators were proposing a new 50 percent tax on bullets as part of a broader gun-control bill. The Connecticut legislation is one sign that the gun-control debate that the shootings will prompt next year in statehouses around the country could morph into an ammunition-control debate, too."

    Two hours before the National Rifle Association told the country that guns were not to blame for the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan today said that “reasonable people” should be able to overcome their differences on the issue and work to craft tougher laws. Duncan, a member of Vice President Joe Biden’s new task force charged with finding solutions to America’s gun violence, said the goal should be to support “common sense” measures such as banning “assault weapons” and high-capacity ammunition, and closing gun-show loopholes in the background-check process. “Reasonable people should be...

    TAVARES, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) - Lake County officials say one of their top priorities is to get the state to clarify its gun laws to prevent stray bullets from landing in residential areas. The problems stems from an area near the Mount Dora Country Club. Earlier this year, Jerry Benedict spoke with FOX 35 reporter Valerie Boey about bullets reaching his yard, describing the sound for her. "Eeeenyow... Kabloom, and it went right through that grass there, right next to us about 8 or 10 feet away!" The gunfire was coming from a private property in a wooded...

    Corey Cogdell is a two time U.S. Olympian. She shoots trap--and she is one of the best in the world. She is also a big game hunter. And she has been pretty successful at that as well. But when it was publicized as a part of her Olympic bio that she is a hunter, hunting opponents showed their true nature in a series of vile and violent tweets. Here are just a few: "I hope that someone someday shoot your whole familly just practicing." "please go shoot yourself in the knees. YOU ANIMAL MURDERER!! you're a disgusting human being." "kill...

    USA --(Ammoland.com)- Moderate (never a conservative) Bill O’Reilly has as demonstrated through his comments over years, and those of the last couple of weeks, especially those on air this last Tuesday, August 14 2012, now easily established himself as the strongest and most powerful anti-gun, anti-NRA and anti-Second Amendment (which he claims to support) advocate in the Country. His all-knowing, arrogant, impossible to correct and flat out lying (he knows the facts) in the face of facts, given to him by those who can contact him, are typical of the anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment comments we have heard for decades....

    Alcohol, tobacco and firearms are legal in the United States, but there is a long history of the government classifying those who sell alcohol, buy alcohol, sell tobacco, use tobacco, sell firearms and possess firearms as a lower order of being. Democrats want anti-gun leadership at ATF - by the nature of what is legal and what is not, promoting an anti-gun-stance Agency Director is a Constitutional conflict. If proof of criminality isn't there, the BATFE-ATF will hound you anyway. For years, the ATF was under the Treasury Department. In 2006, a new law placed the ATF under the Justice Department,...

    A pro-Walker Marine vet got into a few confrontations at Democrat Tom Barrett’s rally today with Bill Clinton in Wisconsin. The Franklin Center has video. They couldn’t handle the truth. So, union cops were called in and dragged him out of the rally and arrested him. They didn’t like what he was saying. The Marine is predicting a 10 point win for Scott Walker. I second that.
