In today’s world, social media rules. The quickest and easiest way to get in touch or stay in touch with friends, public figures, or groups that interest you is by following them on any number of social media outlets. Want to know when a group is having an event? Check Facebook. Want to hear what a public figure thinks about a current event? Check Twitter. Want to watch an informative video about a product you just bought? Check YouTube. On the business side of things, more and more customer service actions are handled through social media sites. So, it is important to use these new channels to stay up-to-date in what is happening in the firearm community. The National Rifle Association has a vast presence on social media. The NRA’s multiple accounts fit into any niche you care about. If you are a hunter, but don’t want to hear all about legal mumbo-jumbo, you can follow NRA’s hunting profiles, but not the NRA-ILA. If you’re a woman, you can follow the NRA’s Womens’ Network to get information relevant to you. And since it’s social media, you make the decisions on what content you get to read and respond to. Here is a list of all of the different NRA groups you can “Like” or “Follow” on Facebook or Twitter.

It does not matter where in the country you live. If your state does not offer concealed carry, you need to get involved. If your state does support your right to self defense and concealed carry, you need to get involved. There is strength in numbers and we need to all come together. The Second Amendment Foundation is leading the way, but we cannot passively sit back and let the other guy do all of the work. The following is the statement from the Second Amendment Foundation.
Since an article detailing companies’ responses to gun and accessory bans appeared in the Cheaper Than Dirt Chronicle, almost 100 manufacturers have announced they are not selling equipment to law-enforcement agencies that their states’ citizens can’t own—in particular, New York.
APRIL 16, 2013 IS THE LAST DAY to take advantage of the $300 NRA lifetime membership offer. The normal rate is $1,000.
I just finished listening to the latest congressional committee hearing regarding SH-216—Sen. Feinstein’s latest attempt to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. I am struck by the blindness exhibited by the anti-gun members of the committee and those testifying.
Last week, Bob Beckel, The Five—Fox News—host asked, “When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?”
Actually, Bob, I heard about one two weeks ago. And that was only one. Statistically, a rape occurs every 21 hours on college campuses throughout the United States.
The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) is Requesting Handwritten Letters to State Officials
Due to the lawless assault, organizers say, it is time to get active now. “In response to these unconstitutional actions by the President, on .223, February 23, 2013, the American people will stand together in defiance to protect the right that protects ALL of our rights, the 2nd Amendment!”
There is a certain number of the pro-gun crowd that’s been out for blood over the last few months and their latest target is the company that gave us the AR-15, Illinois-based ArmaLite, Inc. After Olympic Arms’ bold statement that they will no longer sell to the State of New York due to New York’s SAFE Act, other gun companies have quickly joined the ranks of “you’re either with us or against us.”
Sometimes the best part of joining a club or group is the free stuff. Whether it is a free T-shirt, free food, discounts at different places or some type of branded swag, getting something back for your money is always nice.
The National Rifle Association made this very moving video to remind us that we are the ones who grant the power, not them.
The Second Amendment Foundation is not a Johnny Come Lately organization jumping on the gun control bandwagon. In fact, SAF is the nation’s oldest, and largest, nonprofit 501(c)(3) foundation dedicated to research, publishing, education and legal defense of gun rights.
It may seem like an obvious misstep to many of us; however there are plenty of companies that refuse to see any advantage to their employees carrying firearms on the job.
Firearms makers and gun-accessory manufacturers are certainly facing a hostile Senate and federal administration, but the battles aren’t all on the national stage. Several state governments are also making life difficult for firearms businesses, forcing gun and accessory makers in those states to consider moving their operations to friendlier locations.
Olympic Arms, the AR-15 builder located in Olympia, Washington, recently released a statement about how it will deal with sales to states that are seeking to restrict 2nd Amendment rights.

I got a message this week from the NRA-Institute for Legislative Action. It consisted of a list of bills in the Texas Congress backed by the NRA. A message like this is usually a scroll-through read before deleting, but it caught my attention this time around.
If a few lawmakers in Colorado get their way, we could be forced to find out. In their zeal to jump on the anti-gun agenda, lawmakers in Colorado have proposed banning the sale or manufacture of high-capacity magazines. The law would go well beyond Colorado’s borders by banning the manufacture of products to be sold out-of-state.
