Oliver North speaking at the 2018 NRA convention

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.

Top Cops Opposing Concealed Carry — Did yours make the list?

Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, Constable, or Commissioner — It really does not matter what you call them, they are still the top cop within the department and answerable to the citizenry. In some jurisdictions, the Chief of Police or Sheriff has a significant amount of input or the final determination of whether or not an individual can obtain a concealed carry permit or class III weapon. Although most of would agree this is already a right under the Second Amendment, it is the situation we currently live under.

Cuomo Urges (Threatens) Banks Against Doing Business With 2A Companies

It is one thing, as an elected official, to have and espouse an opinion. It is quite another to make a veiled threat against financial companies and insurers due to your political position or influence. However, that is exactly what many believe Andrew Cuomo, previous governor of New York, did when he crossed the line and “urged” banks and insurance companies—some would say threatened— with repercussions to their reputations if they continued doing business with firearm and ammunition manufacturers. One of those ammunition manufacturers has ‘fired’ back.

School Resource Officer Stops Shooting in FL — Where is the Media?

“If it bleeds, it leads.” When the shooter in Parkland Florida committed his atrocity, news agencies not only covered it for days, lawmakers took part by hastily enacting poorly planned, conceived, and executed legislation. In large part, the shooter-caused carnage was laid at the feet of the school resource officer who sheltered outside instead of engaging the shooter—a fact the media covered to a lesser degree. Then, last week, there was another school shooting in Florida, but this shooting was much different.

YETI Drops NRA — A Knee-Jerk Political Reaction?

If you’ve been in social media “jail,” or on a temporary break from Facebook and the national news, you may not have heard that YETI severed its ties with the National Rifle Association, at the cost of a significant amount of controversy. The issue was brought to light by a letter from NRA director and past president Marion Hammer.

“For years YETI Coolers have been a hot item for sportsmen at the Friends of NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction events around the country.”

Goodbye to the Gunny — RIP 4.15.18

R. Lee Ermey, a former Marine Corps drill instructor known to millions of moviegoers as the sadistic Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” died Sunday morning, according to his longtime manager. 74 years old, Ermey died due to complications from pneumonia. Beyond a favorite among gun owners and movie goers, he was a helluva lot of fun to be around.

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) Talks Shooting Sports

Elected representatives matter, and so do their opinions. Of course, 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. Sen. Cornyn (R-TX) is not only a friend to the Second Amendment, he is an avid gun owner, hunter, and sportsman.

Pro-Athlete Marksmanship Training

We hunters spend hours and dollars trying to improve our chances for bagging that next buck, bear, or bunny. Scientists have now discovered ways to do that for fewer dollars. True! We can now train with our rifles for less than pennies a day. One technique, in fact, costs nothing but time. And it’s time well spent.

Remington Outdoor Company Surrendered to Creditors

Remington is (was perhaps) one of the most revered firearms manufacturers in the America. Known as “Big Green,” Remington has sadly become Big Red, sinking into massive debt. Although it was widely reported that Remington was having significant financial difficulties, it is still sad news to read that Remington has filed for bankruptcy.
