NRA has officially announced the debut of its newest online channel: NRA Freestyle presented by Daniel Defense, which will launch officially on Wednesday, April 30, 2014. This channel is for the independent, athletic, adventurous gun owner and revolves around the idea that culture and guns can (and should) collide.

When deciding which Governors are pro Second Amendment Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal gets a solid check mark beside his name. On Wednesday, Gov. Deal signed a wide-ranging gun bill into law that left critics howling in protest and the rest of us applauding.
Planning to use the same grassroots tactics as the NRA by encouraging voters and funding political campaigns, New York’s former mayor, Michael Bloomberg recently rebranded his anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, as Everytown for Gun Safety after bringing aboard paranoid Shannon Watt’s group, Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

While the gun-rights community is focused on the National Rifle Association-backed New York State Rifle and Pistol Association lawsuit (NYSRPA) challenging New York’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act, a lesser-known complaint has also been filed that has both promise and controversy built in.
I attend a great deal of both outdoor trade shows and consumer shows over the course of a given year, with many of them concentrated between January and April. Recently, I attended the annual Shot Show in Las Vegas, the National Rifle Association great outdoors show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and the 2014 Pheasant Fest in Milwaukee Wisconsin. I was fortunate at each of these events to meet with numerous hunters, outdoorsmen and women and discuss some of the issues of today facing today’s hunters.
Restrictive and cumbersome gun regulations in some states may make non-offenders feel like common criminals. States, such as California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Illinois, are prime examples of places where strict gun laws put into place by state-elected officials make obtaining guns legally harder than ever. Loose interpretation of the laws that govern firearms has ignited much debate.
On March 6, 2014, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued an El Nino watch for the spring and summer of 2014. Named after the baby Jesus by South American fisherman from the coasts of Peru and Ecuador, El Nino is the warming of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the western coast of South America in an area called Nino3.4. This warm water changes wind patterns, in turn affecting global weather. Moreover, this time around meteorologist and scientists are expecting a “doozy.”
President Obama wants to protect you from gun violence.
Just reading that, you know this cannot be good. In his latest budget request, Obama requested $1.1 billion for gun control and “to protect Americans from gun violence.” But the assault on our Second Amendment rights will not stop there. Adding fuel to the gun control fire, the Department of Justice (DOJ) asked for an additional 382.1 million for gun control.
In Guns Across the Border: How and Why the U.S. Government Smuggled Guns into Mexico, author Mike Detty documents how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) ran a series of “gun walking” sting operations that failed to stop Mexican gun smuggling cartels — and even aided the cartels’ efforts.
It took until July of 2013, but my home state of Illinois became the last state in the Union to enact a concealed carry law. Illinois was last for a reason, and both sides offered plenty of rhetoric. The Antis claimed the law would paramount to the Wild West; the streets would lawless and gun fights rampant. A friendly punch to the snot locker would instead lead to murder conviction because everyone would be packing heat.
Stop me if you have heard this one before, “A leading Democrat makes a career from crusading against guns and the Second Amendment only to be accused of moral turpitude and gun crimes.” They preach against you and me owning guns, claim they have the moral high ground to legislate and restrict our Second Amendment rights and all the while are wearing hypocrisy on their sleeves. California State Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) was recently arrested for gun running among a laundry list of other major crimes.
The geopolitical propaganda that is spreading about Ukraine is hard for the U.S.-based observer to decipher, so we will not try to unravel the details. But by some estimates, snipers from the now-deposed Ukraine government shot between 70 and 100 protesters in the streets. And further upheaval seems guaranteed, whether as a civil war or by invasion.
