Q&A: U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) and U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX)

Elected representatives matter. Like all elections, the 2018 midterms could be pivotal for the future of the Second Amendment as we know it. We all want our Senators and Congressmen to vote in our favor, but all too often it seems our elected representatives bow to political pressure or flip-flop on an issue in favor of feel-good politics. To help you make an informed decision, here are two members of congress that recently sat down for Q&A sessions guns and the shooting sports.

Review: SIG 365 — A Smashing Little 9mm

I don’t mind carrying a small handgun that is very efficient for its size. In fact, some handguns are a wonder of downsizing. However, small 9mm handguns have a set of problems that isn’t easily addressed. This includes lower magazine capacity and a lower hit probability.

Bloomberg—Mayors Against Illegal Guns

Blame the Criminals, Not Law Abiding Gun Owners

Every time the mainstream media covers an unlawful shooting, why is it that the lawful gun owners get the blame? Of course, the mainstream media is not the only one to blame. Gun control advocates are all too willing to use any tragedy as a fundraiser, targeting lawful gun owners and Second Amendment groups such as the NRA.

Ruger CEO Fires Back Against ‘Gun Safety’ Advocates

Recently, the New York Times touted a report claiming that “gun safety advocates” were forcing Ruger to adopt their policies and measures. Ruger’s CEO, Chris Killoy, fired back with a statement that all gun owners should hear… and repeat. Ruger’s quote, per the New York Times, flatly stated that Ruger has no intention to “adopt misguided principles by groups that do not own guns and does not understand guns.”

Academia: Seeker of Truth or Agent of Gun Control

Have you ever wondered how politicians can tout numbers or a position, that is so far from the reality we all know, with a straight face? Sure, some of the time it is the politician who is directly responsible, other times it is a the result of data they have been fed. Data from academia, which many of us know to be biased. Of course, researchers from the world of academia are supposed to be unbiased and seekers of truth—and that is about as likely as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer supporting President Trump and a Pro Second Amendment agenda.

72 Ways to End up on the Terrorist Watchlist

Come and Take It!, Molon Labe!, From My Cold Dead Hands! We have all heard the phrases and likely repeated many of them at one time or another, in or out of context to the Second Amendment and our rights. After a friend received a call the other day from the FBI due to a Facebook post, my interest was piqued and the search began. Quickly, it became apparent just how easy it is (or was) to get yourself put on a watchlist.

Oliver North Set to Become Next NRA President

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has announced that retired Marine Corps Lt. Col. Oliver North will become the next president of the association “within a few weeks.” The news stunned some in that Pete Brownell (abruptly) decided not to run for a second term, Both the NRA’s first and second vice presidents were also unable to take the position, but none of that dampened the enthusiasm for North.
