NSSF: Statement on Chicago Gun Trace Report

Few, if any, gun owners would disagree with more police on the streets or stiffer penalties for criminals who use guns. However, we all have seen surveys that claim gun owners support a proposal based on a couple of pieces such as these when in fact the anti gun forces are proposing something much more insidious. Chicago’s latest Gun Trace report may be just such as a strategy, but that is for the reader’s to decide. Here is the reading and analysis from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

Buy a Crimson Trace Laser Sight or Tactical Light, Get Free Hornady Ammo

If there is a downside to buying a new gun for self-defense, it would be the break-in period and the cost of proofing/sighting in the self-defense ammunition.

SHARE Act One Step Closer to Passage

Undoing the laws passed by the last administration may be one President Trump’s crowning achievements. Hunters and sportsmen are the ultimate conservationists.  I would challenge that the National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Mule Deer Foundation, Whitetail Institute, and a host of others have each done more to protect wildlife and public lands than the antis have combined.

What to Do with Firearms and Ammunition Affected by Flood Waters

You do not have to be a victim of a hurricane to experience the destructive effects of flooding. A broken pipe, ruptured water heater, or a sump pump that goes out during a storm is enough to do it in some areas. In any case, flooding and firearms are not only a bad mix, it can be a financial disaster. This leaves firearms owners who have seen their guns and stored ammunition submerged by flood waters wondering whether their firearms and ammunition can be salvaged and used safely. Fortunately, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI) have the answer. Here is the full release.

21 State AGs Argue 4th Circuit Ban on Modern Sporting Rifles Unconstitutional

The election of a new President may have lessened the threat to the Second Amendment at the federal level, but it increased the threat at the state and local levels. Gun control advocates no longer have a friend in the White House, and support in the House and Senate have waned as well. However, while many firearm enthusiasts have relaxed and taken their eye off the prize, the antis have been pressing their efforts to weaken the Second Amendment. One such example is Maryland’s semi-automatic modern sporting rifle ban. Fortunately, organizations such as the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) have maintained their diligence.

Glock Announces the New G17 Gen5 and G19 Gen5 Pistols

Glock’s design has proven its worth—regardless of whether you are a Glock fanboy or a hater. The changes to the design through the various generations are not overtly obvious to eye, which leads some to believe all Glocks are all the same; a one trick pony. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sure, the basic design has been proven, some would go so far as to say perfected.
