This article continues the NRA’s coverage of the upcoming presidential election and Hillary Clinton’s campaign against the Second Amendment, ‘high capacity’ magazines, and semiautomatic firearms. Here is the full release from the NRA:
With one week left until the election, NSSF President and CEO Steve Sanetti is calling on all members of our industry (and The Shooter’s Log to our readers) to join together, go to the polls armed with the facts and, #GUNVOTE. While politicians say it all the time, this truly is the most important election in the history of our industry, and we need your help.
What facts should voters have when they go to the voting booth on Tuesday? How can readers help spread those facts to the general public? Share your answers in the comment section.
Let me start by directing you to the disclaimer at the bottom. Although I most often refrain, some of this (in my personal opinion) may be worthy of a bit of “my personal opinion.” That way, you can feel free to agree or excoriate (criticize severely) me in the comments section as you see fit.
When rallying against the Second Amendment, politicians continually claim the majority of Americans support banning so-called “assault weapons.” Whether they are out of touch or simply denying the truth, Americans are not in favor of gun bans—not even another assault weapons ban. Here is the full release from the Second Amendment Foundation citing a Gallup poll that demonstrates Americans’ do not support more gun control.
The Shooter’s Log certainly has its share of proud supporters of the Second Amendment, and for that, we salute you.
The elections are around the corner and some panic buying is happening. This is apparently putting a bigger strain on the NICS system than it can handle. In response to the increased traffic, the FBI NICS made a ‘temporary’ change to how some background checks will be processed.
The election is just around the corner, and the results may not be good for gun owners. The problem is political speak for convenience versus what the politician will actually do once elected. The latest example of this is demonstrated in the following press release from the NRA. Regarding Hillary’s leaked statement from a private fundraiser when she slammed the Supreme Court as “wrong on the Second Amendment” and called for reinstating the assault weapons ban during a small private fundraiser in New York last week, according to audio of her remarks obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
In case you have been living under a rock, one of the biggest infringements to the rights of law abiding gun owners and citizens potentially interested in legally becoming gun owners, has been the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency’s effort to record the license plate information of the patrons.
Bust some birds and help a worthy charity help kids and families in need. This is what being a sportsman is all about. Winchester was a partner in the creation of Kids & Clays since its founding and continues that support today. Here is the full release from Winchester.
Could the latest proposed gun legislation be a win for the Second Amendment? Yes, but one that likely is not on your radar. “Because the administration has not moved forward in a timely manner to complete its own ECR Initiative, it is now time for Congress to move forward with legislation complete the ECR and reduce unneeded and burdensome regulations while improving our global competitiveness, create American jobs and enhance national security,” Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel said.
The anti gun and pro Second Amendment forces came to a showdown in Missouri. The legislature spoke, the executive vetoed, and before you knew it, it was the gun rights of law-abiding citizens that hung in the balance. Then, Bloomberg and the NRA entered the fray. Here is the full release from the NRA.
Four federally-licensed Massachusetts firearms retailers and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, filed action in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts this week to challenge on Constitutional grounds the “Enforcement Notice” issued by state Attorney General Maura Healey.
In what Hillary Clinton only half apologized for as a “grossly generalistic” (sic) characterization of half of Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump’s supporters as “a basket of deplorables” that received so much media attention over this past weekend, we hear both a genuine elitist attitude toward Americans and a familiar political echo.
You may not live in California, but past history has taught us that if the anti gunners are successful in one state, others will follow the path and try to pass similar anti-Second Amendment legislation in your state. So, we all have a vested interest in getting this shot down. If you live in California, sign the petition and spread the word to get other like-minded gun owners and shooters involved. If you live outside of California, use your social media reach to get the word to the pro Second Amendment people who can defeat this in California!
The Second Amendment Foundation filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against the City of Seattle, alleging violation of the state Public Records Act for refusing to disclose revenue data related to the controversial “gun violence tax” that was rushed into law last year.
