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.

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.
Thanks to our friends at the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), another window into Hillary’s gun control agenda and tactics has been opened. Here is the full release from the NSSF.

With suicide accounting for nearly two-thirds of all firearm fatalities annually, the topic of suicide prevention deserves our attention. In recent years, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has worked with the Veterans Administration, the State of Utah, and mental health agencies to help educate gun owners and the public on how to keep firearms safely out of reach of those who, during a period of despair, might decide to do themselves harm.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, has proudly announced that Smith & Wesson has joined the NSSF’s #GUNVOTE Chairman’s Club with a $500,000 contribution to the association’s critical voter registration and education campaign. This is the largest contribution the #GUNVOTE campaign has received to date!
Last week’s stunning announcement by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healy was a major blow to gun rights and the Second Amendment rights of Massachusetts’ citizens. If allowed to stand, it could spread like plague to other pro gun control states. Here is a quick synopsis of what happened and the plans and organizations looking to take legal action to right this wrong.
The fight for the Second Amendment is in full swing. It is time to see who will step up and take a stand both on the political front and supporting pro Second Amendment groups. One manufacturer, that has jumped in with both feet, is O.F. Mossberg & Sons.
The Washington Post recently awarded three Pinocchios to President Obama’s claim, “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than to get his hands on a computer or even a book.” and called it an, “Exaggerated claim based in no real statistics, which does nothing but distract the public.” The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF), Larry Keane, also offered the following:
The facts are on our side! Not that politicians are always known for following the facts, nor are the anti gunners, but The Shooter’s Log has them compliments of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and now you do too.
“To prevent terrorists from launching attacks and obtaining passports, and for other purposes.” That certainly sounds ominous, and to those who are already suspicious of the government’s motives, it may sound worse. However, you can’t make an informed decision unless you are actually informed.
We all love free guns and gear. We can also all get behind spreading the message of gun safety. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has brought the two together to give you an extra incentive to promote a positive message. Here is the release and link from the NSSF.
Hearing Tomorrow on Stringent Measures
Amendment 1 has been filed on HB1016 Safety Tech, which would create the Gun Dealer Licensing Act, one of the most onerous assaults on gun rights seen in Illinois in years. It is scheduled for Judiciary – Criminal Committee hearing May 17, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. in Stratton Building Room D-1 Springfield, IL.
NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Larry Keane was a guest on the nationally syndicated America Now with Meghan McCain program last week. The topic was authorized-user technology “smart guns” and the Obama administration’s recent executive actions to potentially involve law enforcement and the Department of Defense in the acquisition of firearms equipped with this nascent technology.
Last week, The Shooter’s Log, reported on gun control groups’ attempts to sue retailers and manufacturers. In this week’s outrage, gun control groups are upping the ante by blaming criminal activity on law-abiding firearm dealers under the guise of “responsible business practices.”
The White House has not released the report as of the writing of this post, but The Shooter’s Log want to put this on your radar (before it become news). Several states have laws already on the books simply waiting for the technology to be considered viable.
If someone were to enter your home with the intent to do harm to you or your family, having a gun by the bedside and reacting just won’t cut it—you need good judgment, too. Clint Smith, president and director of Thunder Ranch Training Center suggests that to stay safe you need a plan and plenty of practice. There are no “do-overs.”
